Michele Burris is a fantastic real estate agent. She is extremely knowledgeable about all things real estate and uses her knowledge wisely and effectively. She helped my husband and I sell and buy a home in 2013 and everything about working with her was wonderful. She had smart and cost effective suggestions for improvements that would increase our chances of selling. She made use of technology to make sure our listing was available for all to see. She brought in staging and photography experts to make sure our home and internet listings looked perfect. Following her advice we had an offer and were under contract within two months! And with her superior negotiating skills we went under contract for a price with which we were very happy.
Buying a home with Michele was also a wonderful experience. When we made appointments to view houses she took plenty of time with us in each home and never made us feel rushed. She offered suggestions, but was not pushy. Once we settled on a home she again used her negotiating skills to ensure we went under contract at a price that was pleasing to us. When a better home came on the market a few weeks later she encouraged us to switch gears and go for the new place, despite it being more work and less commission for her, because she knew we liked the home better and it would be a better fit for our family.
In addition to her real estate talents, Michele Burris is a kind and pleasant person to work with. I know Michele had a number of other clients while working with us, but any time I called or met with her I felt like we were the only ones. She took such time and care with us. She made what can be a very stressful process as smooth and easy as possible. I recommend Michele to all my family and friends who mention they are planning to buy or sell a home. If I ever need the services of a real estate agent again, Michele Burris is the person I will call. She is fantastic!

Michele listed and sold my condo in under three weeks. Even though several distressed sales in my neighborhood had driven the prices of neighboring condos low, Michele believed in the community and my condo. She recommended an excellent professional interior designer who helped me prepare and stage the condo for market, and Michele paid for a professional photographer who took beautiful photos. Michele ensured that my listing maximized the potential from the internet and social media. As a result, we found buyers within a few weeks. My condo sold for a very good price. During negotiations, Michele was always right on target. Her decades of experience as a real estate broker were a tremendous help to me.
Now Michele is helping me find my dream house. She is a kind, thoughtful, honest, and highly skilled professional who listens to her clients and applies all her knowledge and expertise on their behalf. I recommend her very highly.
