Michelle James could not have been more helpful in our home purchase. She showed us many homes and was very honest and professional. Once we decided on a home Michelle was at her best with all the negotiations and due diligence. My wife and I would not have bought a house if it weren’t for Michelle James. Michelle James is a true professional.

Michelle has guided me in the purchase of two houses. She knows the area well and helped us get the greatest value for our price range. Trustworthy. If ever I’m in need of a realtor again, she’ll be the only call I make.

Michelle was professional, resourceful and responded quickly when we had questions or needed help. She gave us the resources we needed to stage our house for showings. She sold our house in 5 days. The buyers said they “fell in love” with our house just from the photos.
Home Seller—2015

Michelle sold our home in about 45 days. She has great knowledge of the process and an expert on the local market. We researched the realtors in the area, and chose Michelle based on her reputation and professionalism. Should you be looking for a true expert in the area, call Michelle, we were very happy with the whole process.

Michelle is awesome. She wrote to us stating she had a buyer interested in buying a home on our subdivision and asked if we were interested in selling. I called her saying we were interested and we set up a date for her to see our home. She said she was pretty sure it would be suitable for her buyer. From there on it was plain sailing. Michelle saw things that needed to be addressed before they became an issue. She was totally on the ball from day 1. Always returned my calls promptly and kept me informed of how things were progressing. I highly recommend Michelle.
