"The nature of my job requires me to relocate every 2-3 years. As a result, I have worked with about a half dozen real estate agents from all over the country. Without a doubt, Michele is the best real estate agent with whom I have ever worked. Not only is she knowledgeable and professional, but she also takes the initiative to provide that extra effort to help her clients easily navigate through the difficult terrain that is California real estate. On the purchase side, Michele worked closely with my lender and kept us supplied with regular updates. She easily shaved two weeks off the underwriting process by highlighting potential issues and assisting us with collecting critical data to expedite the process. On the sales side, she developed an effective sales strategy that allowed us to secure a contract on our property for above list price within 36 hours! It was a pleasure to work with someone who is so willing to go the extra mile to ensure the purchase and sale processes were as painless as possible. It is not every day that you meet someone who is so detailed, thorough and effective.
Quite simply, she cares for you as though you are a family member. I can only hope that we will be relocated back to California so I can work with her again in the future."

"Our experience with Michele Miller: When we needed to sell our family home, my sister searched on the internet for the most professional, capable Realtor. Michele's name appeared, so we interviewed her. We were thoroughly impressed by her presentation and her professional manner! We interviewed others, but Michele's presentation convinced us. We listed our property with her and will be forever grateful. Working with her was such a pleasure. Because of her hard work everything went well and flowed smoothly.
When we accepted the final offer and went in to escrow, Michele kept us informed daily about every step. She also kept my siblings informed via email. Michele became a friend — she is a fine, sensitive, caring person. Her manner was always calming because of her professional manner. The escrow went so smoothly. Michele's attention to detail was obvious. We closed right on time — my family was amazed!
I will happily recommend Michele to everyone I can. We were so lucky to find her and work with her."

wife Ingrid and I have done business with Michele for several years through
more than one transaction. Michele has always been a pleasure to do business
with even in the most difficult times during a transaction. She has always
been patient, courteous and considerate both of our time and our desires
concerning our present needs. She is truly our advocate in every aspect whether
buying or selling. I would refer my closest friend to Michele with full
confidence that they would receive the same level of quality treatment that
Ingrid and I always have."

"Michele Miller is a fantastic South Bay real estate agent. I employed her services through a referral from two different friends. Boy, were they right! Michele is professional, efficient and always goes the extra mile with her clients. I don't think that I can count the number of houses that she showed me. Michele never gave up on me and I actually bought a house. My first house was a perfect fit for me. Michele's soft-sell and easy-going style made buying a house a pleasure for me. After all Michele's help with the offers, contracts, and all the other stuff, she still continued to help with paint colors, carpet colors, painters and any other help that I might have needed. Every year Michele calls me to wish me a "happy house anniversary." Michele is an absolute pleasure to work with and a wonderful person. I wouldn't go anywhere else next time I need to buy a house (let's hope that it's not soon - moving is tough!)"

"Michele is everything you want and need in a real estate agent: helpful, knowledgable, flexible, accessible and supportive throughout the entire process. From the very beginning, she shared her thoughts and information about the neighborhoods we were looking at and even encouraged us to consider new areas. When we found a house we loved, she was never more than an email or phone call away — writing a strong offer, negotiating on our behalf, helping us factor in a difficult contingency in a seller’s market, following up on inspections and repairs, connecting us with an excellent escrow company and great home improvement vendors. Even when we called at the last minute on a Saturday afternoon, she came right over to let us in to measure for our new refrigerator. Her expertise and experience made us feel comfortable with all the paperwork and contracts but it was her supportive, thoughtful nature that are just amazing. She was always sensitive to our needs and those of our family, during the stressful process of selling, buying and moving. Because of Michele, we have a wonderful house in a fantastic neighborhood. We would recommend her wholeheartedly and without reservation."

"Michele Miller is the prime example of what a real estate agent should be. She handles the technical aspects of the deal with efficiency and expertise i.e. contracts, offers, paperwork, etc. but then she goes the extra mile on every other conceivable detail. For me, one of many examples is that she waited at the house to let in carpet vendors and appliance men while I was frantically trying to juggle all the other logistics. Add up all of these little "extras" with her natural ability to handle negotiations, to remain calm during the chaos of a home purchase, and still manage to be friendly, helpful, and genuinely interested in your happiness. I would never use anyone else again!"

"I wanted to take the opportunity to express my appreciation for the outstanding service that I have received from Michele Miller of your firm. Michele represents me in my recent home purchase, which involved complicated and often difficult negotiations with a less than cooperative seller. Throughout each step of the process Michele’s efforts were timely, accurate, and of the highest caliber of professionalism I have ever encountered. Most notable was Michele’s attention to detail, high standard of ethics, and her habit of keeping me advised, on almost a daily basis, of the status of the transaction. Michele’s competence and professionalism allowed me to relax and focus on my own business issues, confident that my interests were being protected. I can think of no better measure of a realtor’s performance. I intend to refer professional and personal associates to Michele at each available opportunity. Thank you again for a delightful experiences which certainly speaks well of your firm."

"We have known Michele since 1987, when she first took us to look at homes. Michele helped us to buy a townhouse, and sell that same townhouse years later. Through the years, Michele stayed in touch, providing us with home advice like contacts for plumbers and termite inspectors. We have always found Michele to be very professional and responsive, and would recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate agent."
