Print Agent Bio

PASSION 

I find helping buyers and sellers navigate the real estate process tremendously rewarding. I share my passion, excitement, and enthusiasm with my clients through every transaction.  As your real estate representative, I pride myself on my ability to negotiate strategically as well as provide a strong level of client service. These skills serve as the  foundation which builds long lasting client relationships and referrals.

EXPERIENCE

Today, with over 25 years of experience and success,  I am a Principal Broker with Hasson Company Realtors.  I represent clients throughout Portland, Lake Oswego, Tigard, Tualatin, Sherwood  Beaverton, and other fine outlying Portland communities. I bring outstanding experience along with my in-depth knowledge of the changing real estate market to every client I serve. As a relocation specialist I have gained a wealth of information regarding our current marketplace.  I have earned awards including the prestigious Diamond-Platinum Club Membership through the Portland Board of Realtors as well as being named a top producer with Hasson Company Realtors.  As a principal broker and a long time agent I have incurred a higher level of educational requirements and knowledge that has given me the tools necessary to help clients strategize as well as effectively negotiate all aspects of buying and selling process. 

PERSONAL LIFE

On a personal note, I have been married for 25 years and have wonderful family. I enjoy the mountains, local events and all that the great opportunities the Northwest has to offer.  I am passionate about raising money for both Juvenile Diabetes , Boys and Girls Club, local schools and various small organizations.  I truly believe the key to being a great realtor is not only having a satisfying career but having the ability to  give back to our communities. I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to work with you, and you can feel confident entrusting me with one of your biggest investments.

"We just moved to the area and purchased a home in SW Portland through Michelle. We loved working with her and cannot recommend her enough. It's always challenging to find a good broker; we made three trips here in the past 18 months and worked with multiple agents. Michelle was head-and-shoulders above the rest. The house we bought with her help was our 4th offer but the first one we did with her. She has also been great in terms of connecting us to local services and businesses to get the home ready for move-in. If you want a high-quality, highly knowledgeable and effective realtor, look no further than Michelle Spanu. We love her!"

"Michelle helped sell our home on Bull Mountain in Tigard. She is very knowledgeable about the area and made the selling process easier and more professional than we have ever had before. She communicated what she would be doing to sell our home and kept us informed through the entire process from market research, to open house to closing. She has a great personality and is a pleasure to work with and turns out she is a great personal coach as well! We highly recommend Michelle and anyone who has the opportunity to work with her will not be disappointed.

"Michelle was referred to us by a family member that works in real-estate in another location. Michelle’s experience and in depth knowledge of the processes combined with her positive communication style exceeded our expectations. We worked with her on selling and buying homes where the transactions overlapped and we are confident that she represented us very well in each instance. There are many real-estate brokers in the field, but very few meet Michelle’s excellence in service and we happily recommend her to others any day."

"We were out of state buyers who knew very little about the Portland Market. Michelle took the time to listen to our wish list, show us the Portland market and guide us through the process. She was responsive and willing to show us a home or homes on short notice. In this current housing market, this made all the difference and we love our new home! She was an excellent negotiator, organized, gave us great contractor recommendations and truly became part of our new Portland family. We can’t recommend her enough!"

"I was fortunate to have Michelle referred to me during the hunt for my first home in 2009. From the beginning she went above and beyond my expectations. We looked at about 25 homes until she found me the perfect place. During the hunt she was patient, helpful, and found me the property that met all my criteria. She made the whole first time home buying experience enjoyable and it seemed effortless.

I was so impressed by her I sought her out again 10 years later to upgrade my home size and find a larger property. True to her nature, she did not disappoint. I highly recommend using Michelle for anyone looking for a highly motivated agent that makes the search for a new home truly enjoyable."

"Michelle was a referral from another family member, so we automatically figured she would be competent. But every deal has its ups and downs, and ours was no exception. We knew what we wanted, we just didn't know what house it would be. Sometimes we would get frustrated, sometimes we didn't understand. Sometimes we thought the seller was being unreasonable. Michelle was the glue that held all the pieces together. I have to admit, I was a skeptic about the value of real estate agents, but she opened our eyes as to what a good agent brings to the table. She was the deal manager. She was our expert. She was our sounding board to vent any frustrations, and she fixed them. At the end of the day, we got the best house for us, and it was largely because of Michelle."
