Home Buying

Buying a home can be a fun and exciting experience. Currently in the Austin area, it can also be highly competitive. Buyers need a highly experienced, knowledgeable and assertive Realtor on their side to help them win the home they want at the best price.

Michele has helped hundreds of clients buy their dream homes. She works hard to protect and promote her clients' interests. When you're ready to buy a home, she can provide you with detailed market research and area-specific home evaluations to help you identify the perfect house for you. Michele will negotiate on your behalf to garner the best possible price and terms. She will guide you through the entire process to ensure a smooth and enjoyable home-buying experience.

Existing Homes

The Austin MLS (Multiple Listing Service) lists thousands of homes for sale in the area. Michele works with clients to hone in on the best homes for them. She sets up automated MLS feed with customized search criteria, so that clients only receive information on MLS listings that match their requirements. When clients identify homes of interest to them, Michele escorts them on viewings and helps them evaluate the pros and cons of each property.

New Construction

Do you prefer a brand new home? Keep in mind that builder sales center staff represent the builder, not the buyer. Buyers are advised to secure their own real estate agent to advocate for them -- especially in today' competitive market. Realtor commissions are generally built into the price structure, so you won't pay more by having your own agent. In fact, an experienced agent can negotiate price and upgrades so that you receive the most for your money.

Custom Homes

Having a home built just for you is the best way to ensure you receive exactly what you want. When building a custom home, buyers work directly with a custom home builder and architect to design the floor plan, choose fixtures and materials, and customize the finish out.  Michele has worked with Austin area custom home builder for more than 35 years. She can match you with the right builder for the type of home you want. She can serve as your representative and make sure your needs are met, including negotiating the best price for you. 

Investment Property

Real estate investment opportunities abound in Austin -- but they tend to sell quickly. Michele provides investors with expertise in the local real estate market and advises them on smart strategies for real estate investing.
