"Having a full-service Realtor can mean the difference of hundreds of thousands of dollars. Getting the home ready for market, an extensive marketing plan that reaches the most potential buyers, and skilled negotiating make a huge difference.
When you select me, you get individualized and personal attention. You get someone who listens to what you want and need. You won't be pushed off on some team member who doesn't understand your needs. I will be there each step of the way.
Most of my business comes from referrals. I give 110% to my clients and get great results. That is why they refer me to their family and friends. The relationship with your real estate agent needs to be based on trust that your agent is doing everything they can in your best interest.
Please read through the materials below on the buying process. You'll get a chance to see what other clients have experienced and what makes my marketing plan the best in the industry. My business has grown very quickly because I am different from the other agents out there. I look forward to showing you the personalized attention you deserve and how I can help you exceed your real estate expectations. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to earn your business!"
Congratulations on deciding to sell your home! Selling your home may sound like a daunting, never ending task - but it doesn't have to be.

Michelle understands what it takes to correctly market a property to maximize the sell price in a timely manner. So, choose Michelle to represent the sale of your property to help sell your home the right way!
Find an Expert Real Estate Agent
It's not simple to sell the home. It's a high-stakes, complex deal that will take a lot of time and experience to complete successfully. Work with an experienced, top-rated real estate agent in your neighborhood if you want to maximize the sell price.
The best listing agents understand what local buyers want and how to contact them. They'll provide experienced advice, assistance, and support throughout the whole process, from the first listing to the final closing.
Did you know that sellers who deal with real estate agents, on average, earn 33% more than those who list on their own?
Work with Michelle and see the difference of working with someone who is experienced.
Timing is crucial when it comes to selling a home. Waiting just one month to list your home might result in tens of thousands of dollars extra.
When properties are listed in April, May, or June, they spend the fewest days on the market. Homes listed in each of these months stayed on the market for an average of 28 days. Keep in mind that the number of days on the market does not include the time it takes to close.
Once you accept an offer, you should expect to wait another 30-40 days to close. If you want to obtain the most money for your home, traditionally March and April are the best months - but that can depend on the year and what is happening with the economy.
Data is required to support your price selections. Michelle can help you optimize your earning potential through a comparative market analysis (CMA). Michelle has detailed information on previous and upcoming transactions, as well as comparable homes in your neighborhood.
We will then discuss your goals, whether to price to sell quickly or sell for the maximum amount possible. From there, we will determine the optimal listing price.
Coldwell Banker Realty can help you make the needed improvements and repairs to prep your home for sale at no cost to you until closing, using our RealVitalize® program. No hidden fees, interest charges or markups. Most homes using the program sell at or above list price.

Once we approve the estimates, the work gets completed on time and on budget. Angi guarantees your satisfaction with work quality.
I list your home. You don’t pay anything back until closing.
Preparing your home to make it market ready may seem like an impossible feat, but Michelle will help you walkthrough the entire process with ease.
Starting with an 'agent walkthrough,' your home is inspected to see if any necessary improvements are required.
From there, Michelle arranges a presale inspection with a qualified inspector.
If applicable, recommendations for contractors and other vendors to do any necessary improvements will be provided
And finally, we assure there are no liens against the home by doing a title search.
