Michelle Zelsman helped me buy my new home a few years ago and she was phenomenal. Though it wasn't my first purchase, I'd forgotten all the steps to buying a home, but she guided me expertly and gave me a Full Service experience. So this year when I decided to sell my former home, I knew I wanted her Full Service approach and expertise. Not only did she give me guidance on when to sell and at what price, but she also guided me on what to address in my pre-market projects. But she took it a step further by working directly with the contractors to keep them focused on our deadline to sell, which was fantastic because my job really doesn't allow me time to manage multiple contractors. Once the pre-market projects were completed, she then went into action with a comprehensive marketing plan and got me on the market exactly when she said it was the optimal time to sell. I sold within days with multiple offers that, to my surprise, went much higher than the asking price--as she'd predicted. But even after the contract was signed, she continued to manage home inspection items, condo document requests and a host of other details that I simply didn't have time to address. If you're selling your home, there is so much more you'll get when you take the Full Service approach and expertise offered by Michelle Zelsman. I STRONGLY recommend you call her.

My wife and I were buying our first house, which I was expecting to be a nerve racking experience. Michelle is by far the best realtor EVER. Her light-hearted, optimistic views put my wife and I at ease right away. She was available to us when we needed her and walked us through the entire process from start to the closing table. She took the time to listen to what our needs/wants were in the home we envisioned our life in, showed us homes that had what we wanted or had potential, helped us think through each house we looked at constructively, all while giving us the space we needed to make up our own minds without any pressure. I'm overcome with joy in the home we bought and look forward to life as a homeowner!!!!!

Fellow Agent | April 2020

"Michelle is an all around wonderful agent and a pleasure to work with. She knows her stuff and is an excellent communicator from start to finish!"

Fellow Agent | January 2021

"Michelle is a real pro and a humanitarian. She is ethical and doesn't meet a challenge she can't resolve. She's the kind of agent you want on the other side of the transaction."

Fellow Agent | February 2022

"Michelle is a knowledgeable, capable agent, but what I most appreciate is her kindness and patience. We worked through a difficult transaction together and I'm glad it was her on the other side!"

Michelle, did everything I asked and more when purchasing my new house and selling my old one. I don’t think I could have found a more responsive realtor. As a local, her knowledge of the area was a great benefit to me and my wife’s search for the new home and she kept us constantly informed of  issues affecting home pricing. I recommend Michelle highly.

Michelle is diligent and tenacious, but also really personable. She treated us like a million-dollar client even on an entry-level purchase and I'd be happy to work with her again. Can't say enough good things! You're in good hands with Michelle!
