Print Agent Bio

Passion

My career in real estate began in 1993 after purchasing two homes of my own. To this day “I really enjoy touring homes, and capitalizing on the experience of both selling and buying real estate” Based on these past real estate experiences, I was fortunate to make a career out of  something that I loved to do. With this same sense of excitement and accomplishment my passion and enthusiasm is shared with all my clients through the entire real estate process. I pride myself in paying close attention to details while providing strong levels of  client service. These attributes have not only helped me build a successful business but provided me with wonderful relationships that will last a lifetime.

Today, I am happy to say I am a Principal Broker member of Hasson Company Realtors, a Firm in Lake Oswego, which represents properties throughout the greater Portland area, including Lake Oswego, Tigard Tualatin, Beaverton and other outlying suburban areas.

Experience

With 20 years in the business, I bring to the table both experience and knowledge. In addition, I am continually educating myself to make sure I stay abreast of our ever changing real estate market. With these attributes, I am proud to say I have consistently earned awards from Masters Circle and top awards from my real estate peers.  

With this experience, I feel I am able to leverage the variables that affect a home’s price as well as help clients strategize and effectively negotiate all aspects of buying and selling. I specialize in e-Marketing as well as the internet to create a competi-tive advantage. "With the backing of Hasson Company Realtors in Portland, Oregon, a company known for its quality marketing programs, my goal is to keep your home in front as many potential buyers as possible and provide you with the exposure you deserve. This along with a proactive team approach to marketing, you will be assured that your home will be on the market the shortest time possible." 

Personal Life

I have been married for 25 years and have wonderful family. I enjoy the mountains, beach trips and all that the great events and opportunities the Northwest has to offer. I love running, our local sporting events and of course a great glass of Oregon red wine. I am passionate about raising money for both Juvenile Diabetes and various cancer organizations. I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to work with you and  look forward to helping you achieve your real estate goals.

Michelle really did an incredible job… I would not use any other realtor ever and would recommend her to everyone!! She sold my home for more than another high producing agent quoted me to START with. In this economy that is something to be said. She was truley amazing.

"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."

"We worked with Michelle to help us find a home in Portland. We had a very short time line and she made herself available to look at homes as often and we needed. She was very knowledgeable about the area and listened to what we wanted in a home. Once we found our perfect home she kept the process going smoothly and kept us informed of everything. She recommended great vendors that helped facilitate the sale quickly. I would highly recommend Michelle as a Real Estate Professional."

"Our family moved from out of state, we got to know Michelle through a reference from another realtor in previous state.
We were also introduced to a realtor who toured us when we came for the job interview . However , since we decided to rent first , the "job" realtor decided not to reply to our emails or answer questions that pertained to renting altogether.
Michelle however helped kept checking on us throughout our move , helped us with the selection of neighbor hood even before we rented.
Once we were ready to buy , she again listened to what our needs were , understood them very well and zeroed in on the selected listings.We looked around for a good while she was never pushy or forcing and even on a short notice and on weekends , she would make the showings happen.
She had genuine advice , and helped us make right decisions -she advised not to buy a particular house as it had certain flaws that we thought we could live with ,it turns out she was right -that house is still on the market , more than 4 months after we bought ours.
Even after we made the offer , she would meet us at the house for inspections, walk through ,sewer inspections etc. We felt she spoke on our behalf and we were really comfortable knowing the fact that she was on our side. In the end we felt we not only found our "dream house" but also a friend for life in Michelle."

"I can't say enough good things about Michelle! She was a realtor who looked at our house while we were trying to sell it FSBO. In my follow up with Realtors who had come through, she was by far the most helpful even though there was really "nothing in it for her" other then to be helpful and promote some good will. When we finally decided that we needed to get some professional help it was a "no brainer" to give her a call. She did a great job for us and I can't recommend her highly enough. I'd give her more stars in the review if there were more to give."

"I was "assigned" Michelle as part of a corporate relocation. She was excellent. Bless her heart.. she showed my wife and 3 toddlers 60+ houses over the course of 3 months. The first house was a bidding war that exceeded our preferred budget. We won a second house that failed inspections and we eventually walked away from. And finally found one that met our picky requirements. She never flinched and always went to bat for us. Would definitely recommend her to a friend or colleague."
