Michelle spent the better part of a year showing us well over fifty homes as we transitioned from Humboldt County. She knows the area extremely well, worked hard to understand our evolving needs, and never tired of showing us a home new to the market. Ultimately we found a home that inspired us and made all the time and energy worth it. I wholeheartedly recommend Michelle!
Bought a Single Family home in 2019 in Napa, CA.
Michelle was an absolute pleasure to work with. We just closed on a home in Napa and Michelle was such an amazing resource for us. First, she is very knowledgeable of the different Napa Valley neighborhoods. Second, she is ultra responsive - we were always up to date on what was going on. Third, she was patient. The market was highly competitive and we got beat out on multiple offers. Michelle kept our spirits up and kept our head in the game. We ended up in our dream home and we are so thankful for Michelle.
