Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $225K in Tampa, FL.
As a first time homebuyer it was important to me that I found a realtor who had my best interest, someone I could trust and would provide me with all the knowledge I needed to be a homeowner. Michelle, was all of the above and more. She gained my trust the fist time I spoke with her via phone. My gut told me that she was the one I needed to lead me on this journey.
Anytime I had a question or needed help, she was there. Michelle is truly dedicated to her craft. Most realtors just want you to buy “a” house. Michelle wants you to buy “thee”house. Many times we would go to houses and she would say “you can keep looking, but I’m not letting you buy this house.” She knew what properties would be a good investment and which ones were bad and always had facts and reason to back it up. That was important to me.
At one point during the process I came across a lender that didn’t have my best interest. He was trying to take advantage of me due to my lack of knowledge on the loan process. He had prepared documents for the wrong type of loan, but insisted that I go that route because it would be better for me, all because he didn’t want to take the time to do his work over again. Because of Michelle’s vast knowledge she was able to see what this guy was trying to pull over on me. He was shady, lazy and had a temper. She intervened and refused to let this guy take advantage of me. In a pinch she got me in contact with a lender that couldn’t have been any nicer and easy to work with.
Not only did Michelle get us into a house we are excited to call home, she made the process a lot of fun. I can’t thank her enough.
