Michelle’s Commitment to ‘Living Life as a Contribution’

Michelle is a life-time local West Seattle resident, who after earning two degrees, one in T.V. Production and one in Travel, found herself working and exploring the vast waterways of the Pacific Northwest, from the fjords of Alaska through the Straits of Juan De Fuca to Baja Mexico.  She eventually was able to settle permanently in West Seattle, surrounded by the salt water she’s come to love, and the charming community here.  Now married and living the West Seattle ‘charmed life’ next to the salt water she loves, she has undertaken to expand upon her  20+years of multi-family property management experience and transform that into helping people buy & sell homes and land.

Michelle has volunteered her efforts in the past in local events that help bring her community together for celebration and business.  Her involvement ranges from West Seattle Junction Association, Chamber of Commerce to much-beloved local parades.  In addition to this, she’s a steadfast participant of LA Fitness, loves Zumba & Salsa dancing, yoga practitioner and was a regional ‘rec-league’ soccer player for 15+ years!  Today, she’s an avid sports fan and you can see her cheering on the Seattle Sounds FC and/or being a loud #12 for the Hawks.

Michelle’s Personal Mission Statement ‘Commitment to Service’

Michelle believes this is an exciting time to be in real estate in the Seattle area, with a lot of new construction and influx of talented people joining our communities, and she sees opportunity everywhere she goes.  Her passion is connecting people with great properties and making dreams a reality.  In this market, you need knowledgeable representation, and Michelle is positioned to offer unique insights on your journey!   

As a John L. Scott broker, my mission is transactional excellence and client satisfaction. That means I work tirelessly to make your home buying or selling process as efficient, stress-free and lucrative for you as possible.

 

Representation

I take pride in offering high-caliber full-service residential real estate expertise. My clients are my top priority, and I focus on delivering the best possible results for them.

 

Expertise

The real estate market is hyperlocal, seasonal and temperamental—in other words, it can change on a dime. Technology has made information more accessible to everyone, but it can be difficult to keep up with recent events that affect home values. The benefits of working with a licensed real estate professional go far beyond what a mobile app, online video, or website can do.

I provide my clients with information on market seasonality and information relevant to what is happening in their specific neighborhood. This customized analysis includes recent comparable sales that factor into an offer and acceptance strategy.

 

Negotiations

Successful negotiations help move a conversation forward and transform the process into an agreement that’s a win for all parties. Negotiation is not only a skill, but a mindset. I keep my clients’ best interests top of mind as I negotiate on their behalf. 

 

Transactional Excellence

I am dedicated to transactional excellence for every listing and sale. What this means for you is that I oversee every detail of the real estate transaction. The transaction is far from over once an offer has been accepted. I monitor inspections, appraisals, title, escrow and loan processes. Communication and collaboration with all the partners and parties involved with the transaction ensures a smooth and timely closing. I am committed to my clients before, during and after a sale.
