Michele is the consummate realtor professional. Upon meeting Michele, it's so obvious how much she loves real estate - it's her passion. I've hosted open houses for Michele that have proven financially lucrative for me as a buyer representative. Working with Michele has been a very positive and rewarding experience for me.
She is a talented and gifted realtor, the consummate professional.
She knows the real estate market well, and works to get the best deal for her clients. She even obtained a $ 4,000.00 discount for me for needed repairs, which was an added bonus. Best agent I have dealt with since 1992 when I started buying houses
Michele provided sound advice regarding pricing, offers and negotiating. With her wealth of experience, she was confident in her ability to sell our home quickly even though she was pricing it aggressively. In fact, the real estate agent working with our neighbor (they have the same model home as we do) was quoting a listing price $20,000 lower than Michele was pricing our home. We were concerned, but trusted Michele’s experience and it paid off. She sold our home in 2 days AND we got the money we were hoping for out of the deal. When it comes to negotiating, there is no one better than Michele. As mentioned, our neighbor’s house was the same exact builder model as our home EXCEPT they had a few upgrades we did not AND their yard is beautiful. We were very concerned that in a direct competition our house would lose out. We wound up selling our house 2 days before the neighbor put their house on the market so it was not an issue. However, we do not think it would have mattered. When we saw the draft of our listing we were thrilled. In fact my wife stated “I would buy our house over that house in a heartbeat”. Our home simply showed better than theirs did. We credit this two 3 things. Firstly, Michele’s staging experience is invaluable. She went through our home room by room and told us exactly what to keep, what to remove and how to move things around for best effect. Secondly, the photos taken by Stephanie a member of Michele’s team were fantastic. She worked miracles on getting just the right angle for each room and the back and front yards and edited the brightness to be sure each photo gave the best effect. Finally, the write up was thorough and highlighted the aspects of our house that would most appeal to buyers. We also appreciate that Michele was practical about the projects to do (and not do) before going on the market. As the homeowners, we focused on every flaw in our home and planned to replace the aging floor boards of our deck and update our kitchen countertops with granite or quartz. Michele told us NOT to do these projects and she was right. We sold our home for the price we wanted WITHOUT spending money on these costly projects. Without her guidance we would have spent money completely unnecessarily. It is amazing how many steps and deadlines there are especially when you are purchasing and selling at the same time. Michele and her team were also invaluable in helping us keep up with the information and procedures that had to be done in a timely manner for the sale and the purchase. Their reminder emails were a godsend. We also appreciated Michele’s knowledge of area contacts. We were very pleased with the contractors she recommended. They provided a great rate and exemplary service for the projects we did in the home we were selling as well as projects to update the home we were purchasing. We used her recommendations for a plumber and HVAC company and were very pleased with the quality of the work and how quickly the work was completed. As to the buying of our home, Michele demonstrated amazing patience with us. We were all over the place. Going back and forth between building a home or buying a home, staying in Frederick County or moving to WV, etc. She continued to share information with us and show us whatever we wanted to see. On one memorable Saturday morning, we out of the blue decided to go house hunting as we saw an open house and 3 listings we wanted to look at. We reached out to Michele hoping to go to the open house and set up the listings for each in the week. Instead, Michele worked her magic and got us into all 3 listings that day AND had the agent hosting the open house stay late to show us the home. Amazing! All in all, we are extremely satisfied with Michele and her team and highly recommend her.
She was very attentive to our needs and did so much to help us with our transition. Her professionalism was beyond measure, and I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
She continually goes above and beyond her job, as she sold both my properties in literal days. She only brought pre-qualified buyers which saved time for myself and the buyers, as we could immediately set time for inspection and closing. I highly recommend Michele as she is a thorough, detailed, agent that I would use again.
They made it very easy and as stress free as buying a new home can be. Trustworthy and responsive!
From the moment she stepped into our home she exuded confidence and professionalism. The home was listed and sold within 48 hours with the most beautiful photos and a video that captured the love and charm that existed in our hearts. Her team (she and Stephanie) worked with our entire family every step of the way. They answered our questions in a timely manner and guided us through the emotional process with care. We are MORE than happy to recommend Michele Gibson and the entire Berkshire Hathaway team for any of your real estate needs! 5 stars!
Also made sure what we wanted and had in mind was what we got! Would recommend her to anyone!
She knows the market, the area, repairmen, pretty much - you name the need and she knows the right person to help. She’s well connected in the industry and the community. She has quick, effective solutions for any challenges that arise. She’s a true pleasure to work with and we look forward to working with her again in the future!
We ran into some uncontrollable obstacles but Michele made great decisions and used her immense network to get our home sold. I felt like Michele and Stephanie cared about me and not just about a sale.
She was very professional, helpful, knowledgeable and honest with every detail. We were very satisfied with the results and would not hesitate to recommend Michele to family and friends. We are not planning on going anywhere anytime soon, but if we were, we would call Michele!
She provided professional advice on how to prepare our home for sale and did a great job getting the word out so that when we listed our house there was strong interest. From beginning to end everything was handled smoothly. Once we were under contract her team continued to make the process very easy, including scheduling inspections and handling the small repair that we agreed to do. The only thing I had to do was answer a few emails. Michele and her team handled the rest. I am happy to recommend Michele and her team for your real estate needs.
All but one transaction happened during difficult circumstances in 2020. I can attest to the fact that she is a true professional. Not only is she knowledgeable and resourceful, but she listens to her clients and treats them with consideration.
Would highly recommend!!
