WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Sonya Nieves, home owner
Michelle showed me the unit on a Friday evening. I knew it was the place for me. Rather than enjoy her Friday night, Michelle worked on an offer and submitted it to the seller later that evening. I had a contract by Saturday afternoon. This is an example of how hard Michelle works for her clients. Michelle was very diligent and responsive throughout the process. She truly cares about her clients.
Michelle is an absolute gem. She is my first call when we are planning a move. I've worked with Michelle twice now while looking for a home. Michelle stands out because working with her I feel like I've finally found someone who cared about my search and would look out for my interests during the process. For example, touring a home, unlike many other agents, she was actively engaged, asking good questions about issues that I hadn't thought of or that I had forgotten to ask. Michelle also took the time before we even began looking at homes to discuss our goals and priorities so she understood what was important to us.
Michelle also is a great negotiator. In a particularly difficult negotiation, Michelle was calm, collected and professional even after I had become frustrated with the other side (and I negotiate contracts for a living). I was very impressed! At the same time, I also appreciated her counsel on different options, not to mention her incredible responsiveness. The deal ultimately didn't get done but I felt like Michelle had done everything that she could to try to make it work, though in the end we eventually choose another home that Michelle had showed us. We were and are incredibly appreciative of Michelle for all of her efforts and that working with her was such a pleasure, even if the circumstances weren't always easy.
Suffice to say, Michelle has earned my trust and as long as she has time I don't plan on working with anyone else.
home renter & buyer
Working with Michelle was truly an excellent experience. My finance and I met Michelle while visiting an Open House. We were new to the city and looking to purchase a home in Chicago. We quickly felt very comfortable discussing our needs with Michelle and we were very impressed with her knowledge of the local neighborhoods. When we reached out to Michelle to be our agent she was immediately responsive and we were out looking at homes the very next weekend. She spent lots of time showing us a variety of places until we ultimately found a condo that we fell in love with. Michelle was an effective negotiator and was very helpful throughout the inspection and closing process. I would recommend Michelle to anyone looking to purchase a home.
Michelle is an absolute go-getter. She was relentless in finding a buyer for our home. Michelle came through and accomplished exactly what she said she would.
Michelle is the most patient and knowledgeable agent I have ever dealt with. She works fast and is a tough negotiator. I felt that she had my best interests at heart and really understood what it was that I was looking for. I highly recommend her and would use her again if need be.
I have had the pleasure of working alongside Michelle for the past few years. I knew from the start that she was not just the typical broker… Michelle is a trailblazer who recently launched her own independent brokerage, mdwproperties, dedicated to working with builders, contractors, developers, architects and small businesses.
Having worked with Michelle, I know her to be a thoughtful and personable real estate professional and strategist who constantly researches the market in order to leverage her knowledge in a manner that allows her to provide great insights into the details of the project.
I admire her tenacity in finding and providing her clients real estate opportunities and properties utilizing her skills as a talented negotiator and expert researcher resulting in a superior knowledge of the real estate market. I am honored to write this recommendation and excited to see what the future has in store. Well done!

Michelle was instrumental in finding a buyer and helping obtain a fair price for our building within a short period of time while the housing market was still depressed. We were very grateful for her expertise and diligence."
Bill Oberts, home owner
Michelle is the ultimate professional and a complete pleasure to deal with. I have used her to rent apartments in my two-flat multiple times and she has always found me good, reliable renters. She is easy to work with and understands the ins and outs of real estate. If I have a need for a realtor, I will definitely use Michelle again.
Michelle was great in helping me through the process of buying my first home. She was very professional with a personal touch. I couldn't have done it without her."-
Michelle helped me find the perfect apartment for my family. She was very knowledgeable, prepared, and a joy to work with.
