"Where we love is home-Home that our feet may leave but not our hearts."-Oliver Wendell Holmes
I believe buying or selling a home is one of the biggest and most important decisions in one's life. It is not a decision that can be taken lightly or made hurriedly. It is a decision that needs to be patiently made, well executed, carefully explored, overly investigated and thoughtfully considered. A home is not a piece of property; it is an emotional and long lasting personal investment.
A home and the community it is located can bring so much worth and happiness in to a person's life. It is a place where memories are made, friendships are long lasting and projects are limitless. So many life lessons all occur under the roof of a home. Because a home holds so much value and a special place in a person's heart, I make it my priority to insure the buying or selling experience is as informative, as important and as painless as it can be for my Buyers and Sellers.
I began real estate in 2009, which was one of the hardest markets in our history. It taught me a lot of patience and how to work hard for the benefit of my clients, and that has not changed. My background is in design and my degree is in Interior Design with a minor in Construction Management. My passion has always been homes even when I was a little girl. My other passion is helping people. At the end of the day, if I have been a service to someone then that has been a GREAT day! It is my utmost priority to be attentive to my clients' needs. To me real estate is about building trusting relationships and helping people make the best decisions on one of the biggest purchases or sales of their lives. I strive to communicate well and to have 100% satisfaction with all of my clients.
My husband and I are true locals. I grew up in Raleigh and graduated from Athens Drive High School. My husband grew up in Cary and graduated from Cary High School. We have lived in Apex since 1999 and have raised our two children here. Our daughter is now off to college at East Carolina University, my Alma mater...GO PIRATES! My son is well into his high school years. We absolutely love living in Western Wake County. There is still a small town feeling here. The parks, the schools, and the community are all amazing. We have seen a lot of changes over the years and the biggest has been the growth. So many people from all over the country and beyond have decided to relocate here and it has only enhanced our great community. It warms my heart that people see and appreciate the quality of life that can be found in my home town.
In my spare time, I attend and volunteer with Community Bible Study and church. I love to garden, go to the flea market, entertain and decorate. Most of all, I love spending time with family and friends. I am an active member of the National Association of Realtors, the Raleigh Regional Association of Realtors and the Apex Chamber of Commerce.
At the recommendation of several of my coworkers, Michelle helped my wife and I buy our first home.
See what Michelle's clients have to say about working with her:
Michelle was invaluable to us-- she is very knowledgeable about the local areas, was extremely accommodating in working around our busy schedules, was always available and ready to answer all of our questions, and was very patient with us despite our very picky requirements! She ensured that the home buying process was completely painless and went out of her way on several occasions to help us out as first-time buyers.
5 stars, and that's only because we cant rate any higher!
Falling into a highly sought after price range, houses barely stayed on the market for a day. Michelle was great at helping us navigate a very competitive market and kept things simple for us. After looking at only a few houses, we are able to find a perfect starter home. The best part of working with Michelle was that she is an excellent communicator. We were always in the loop with what was going on through out the entire process!
Loved working with Michelle! She went above and beyond and made my first home buying experience great. She helped me every step of the way and I couldn't imagine finding my perfect starter home without her. She is very knowledgeable about ALL things home, she even helped me after buying the house finding affordable businesses for blinds and countertops.
She showed me many homes that totally worked with my schedule and helped me find exactly what I wanted.
Go see Michelle!
Michelle is knowledable, trustworthy, and very personable. She takes the time to find what you're looking for and gives you great advice. She makes the stressful home-buying process a very pleasant experience!
