Happy Clients

When our family of five sold our home, we had already been scouring the Internet for months to see what was out there. After our search, we felt very unsure that we'd be able to find something that was right for us in the location we wanted. We moved into a temporary housing situation and worried we'd be there for a long time. Well, that was before we were introduced to Michelle Schwartz by a mutual friend. After just one meeting, she completely understood what it was we were looking for - what was important to each of us as individuals, and what was important to us as a family with young children. Unlike any agent we'd worked with before, Michelle always listened to what we were saying, cared about what was important to us, and gave us attention as if we were her only clients. We just sat back while she did all the work, which was also a big change from other agents we'd worked with in the past. Within a month, Michelle found not just a viable option for us, but the house of our dreams! We were able to look at it the second day it was on the market, and we closed the deal before the first open house. Even the entire escrow process was unbelievably easy - and I never thought I'd say that! If and when we ever choose to buy another house, we'll definitely call Michelle again. In the meantime, we are still benefiting from her widespread knowledge on everything related to our house, and we have already recommended her to friends and family looking for their new homes. You can't go wrong with Michelle Schwartz!
