Client Testimonials

Due to an unparalleled commitment to providing outstanding customer service as a Realtor in many property purchases, many satisfied real estate customers have submitted letters of thanks and some greatly appreciated reviews regarding my real estate services.

These recent Testimonials are just a sample of the wonderful clients that I had the opportunity to work with and find them the homes that they were looking for or to sell their current home to move to newer pastures. A big thank you to all of them, I am grateful to have worked with such great people.

Here are Testimonials from some wonderful clients

Client Testimonial 

I write to tell you about the excellent
service Michelle provided in the sale of my father's home. My mother
passed away, and my father started thinking about selling his
home (which had become quite lonely). My father is not very
sophisticated about financial or real estate matters. He trusted Michelle based on part on her efforts to stay in close contact over the last year (For
example, he told me that Michelle would let him know if she was leaving town for an extended period of time) His trust was rewarded.
I live in the Seattle area, and I wanted to be involved in all aspects of the sale. Michelle accommodated all my wishes to stay involved, starting with sending up the sales packet and listing agreement through the closing statement, and engaging me with all my questions. She recognized my Father's unique situation and up front told me she would "hold his hand" during the process. She did this and more. You know that as a service provider there is no higher praise than a customer saying, "you did what you said you would do." Michelle delivered. She was available for all my questions, follow-up on all matters, and took extra care to make sure that everything was taken cared for. She proactively reported
on her marketing efforts, and offered local articles to answer
anticipated/implied questions about "why no offers after a week?"
This latter correspondence was unnecessary, given the offer received within about 2 weeks of listing.
In short, the transaction went smoothly; from listing to close in
about 60 days (including a 30 day escrow that went off clean). I highly
recommend Michelle; she has all the attributes of a great agent: reliable,
trustworthy, diligent and a pleasure to work with. You are lucky to have her on
your team.

Client Testimonial

Hi Michelle,
I just want to extend my thanks to you and Tony for our recent amazing home buying experience.
Marci and I still can't believe how smooth and painless the whole transaction was.
You and Tony followed up meticulously at every twist and turn and for that we are forever indebted and grateful to you.
As you know, we haven't bought a home for 27 years and didn't know what to expect venturing in to the housing market again.
Your thorough knowledge and experience in the marketplace proved to be invaluable and we benefited greatly by this.
I have to say that you and Tony are a dynamic real estate duo who know your stuff through and through.
We really appreciate it and can't wait to have you over for a drink at our new home.
Thanks again for everything!!
All my very best,
Andy Berman

Client Testimonial

Michelle Kalms is not only Brainy but Beautiful.

Her "Kalm" (pun intended) demeanor and caring ways make you think that she may be TOO relaxed and NICE to negotiate on the clients behalf. How wrong one would be to think THAT! I have purchased many properties over the last 35 years. Apartment buildings, homes in various cities and most recently a retail business. This was by far the most pleasant experience. I felt better knowing that this was a smart cookie who knows how to manage herself, we were tough customers...we had only one week to view, negotiate and make an offer of the home we purchased. As Canadians, we had to make wire transfers, open USA bank accounts, provide evidence of liquidity, but we also had to arrange for internet bill payments and tax registrations. Most of our paperwork had to be done through the mail and internet and there was never a hitch. Michelle calmed my fears about owning property out of country. There were utilities to register and of course the search for FURNITURE. Michelle was very helpful in that regard and knew where to send me for my budget. She also steered me to the "consignment" furniture shops that do not exist in Toronto. Michelle even had extra keys cut for us and spoke to the Home Owners Association on our behalf. We were out of town for the closing and Michelle made sure that the appliances that needed to be repaired were and that the site was in good condition and that nothing had been removed that was in the offer. She gave the keys to a mutual friend and this was most appreciated. Michelle was always available for us night and day and never sent my calls to voice mail. She was always asking if we needed anything and even offered to go shopping with me. She must have 3 ears, 5 arms and 4 hearts to take such good care of all of her clients. I cannot imagine that we were so special; she has a reputation as being this way to all. I can totally attest to her honesty, integrity and business sense. She gets things done in a nice way, listens and never pushes. She lets the client come to the correct conclusions on their own so one never feels that they made a wrong or coerced decision. Mutual friends suggested Michelle and we are still in their debt. Thank you Michelle for providing our children and grandkids with a place they can come out to "chill" when the really big chill hits us up in Canada. We will use and enjoy this property for many generations to come. A big ,big, thank you comes from deepest and warmest place in my heart.

My best regards

This letter is in reference to Michelle Kalms.
Michelle worked as my real estate agent as I searched for the ideal property
for my personal needs. She promptly provided information on new listings or properties
she felt would serve my interests.In the time that I worked with Michelle, I
could see that she takes her job very seriously. She is clearly dedicated to
her work and the job at hand.Michelle is always punctual, well organized
and efficient by nature. More importantly, Michelle listened to my concerns and
requests and always met them to the best of her ability.

In closing, let me say I have no hesitation in
recommending Michelle as an upstanding real estate agent. I feel confident she
would be an asset to anyone seeking a new home or investment.

Client Testimonial

It was a pleasure to work with Michelle Kalms.
She was very helpful in the search for and purchase of the home. Was always
available on the phone or in person when necessary. She made sure she knew
exactly what I was looking for and worked hard to find it. She was very patient
with the seller’s broker who was a difficult person to deal with. She put us in
a back up position on the property when it was in escrow and when it fell
through it was ours. She handled all aspects of the inspection, pest control,
loan approval and escrow very professionally. Michelle always has a smile and
makes the process fun.
