Michelle Elie is tied into the local market, and had me set up with a showing within hours of a house coming onto the market. In a tight and competitive market, we had our offer in and accepted within hours of the showing, and Michelle was very helpful in walking me through the rest of the process,which was all new to me!

Michelle is wonderful to work with! She has good knowledge of the area . We had a very difficult situation and Michelle was right there with us every step of the way! Michelle reviewed all our paperwork and made quite significant suggestions and changes. We did finally close on a great house in the right neighborhood for us. We highly recommend Michele Elie!

I have had the opportunity to use Michelle several times in the past few years and have had a great experience every time. I am constantly amazed at her knowledge of Chelsea as she seems to know every home and person in town! She is easy to reach whenever I need to get in touch with her and her friendly personality and easy laugh make working with her a real pleasure. I manage quite a few rental properties in the Chelsea area and frequently get asked if there is a Realtor I would recommend - so of course I always recommend Michelle Elie.

We our self are retired Realtors from San Diego, CA and we were impressed with Michelle's professionalism. Her knowledge of the Saline area is great and she gave us some very valuable tips on the houses we viewed. Her patience was endless even with us proverbial buyers from hell. We knew exactly what type of property we wanted which was almost impossible to find in this area but Michelle Elie got us the wonderful place we now own. I recommend her to anybody who needs to sell or buy a house.

Michelle was highly recommended to me by a neighbor. I then engaged her to sell my large, restored historic home in Chelsea and, separately, my two-unit apartment house located behind it, and in my purchase of a modern condominium in Ann Arbor. She demonstrated broad knowledge and excellent judgment in determining pricing and marketing strategies. She was constructively responsive to all the "issues" that came up during these three transactions and gave advice that always proved to be sound. She maintained "electronic" contact with me as I traveled around the U.S. and overseas during the negotiating and sales processes and she worked "smoothly" with all parties. I recommend her without hesitation or reservation.

My wife and I were very picky when we selected a real estate agent. We were extremely happy when we found Michelle Elie, as we were immediately impressed with her professionalism, caring, and helpfulness. She was integral in coming up with the listing price that we felt comfortable with, and we accepted the offer we wanted in three days of listing.
 

Michelle was right there with us to overcome every obstacle in the sale of our house, and we closed on time. Time and time again Michelle impressed us with her knowledge of the profession, responsiveness, and market savvy. When it came to purchasing a home, Michelle presented us with incredible options to purchase, fought for us in every situation, and despite the ultra competitive market, was able to get us into the house of our dreams for the price we wanted to pay. We felt like we were her only clients. Michelle went above and beyond every expectation we had for our real estate sale and purchase. We happily recommend Michelle Elie as a real estate agent; she is the best.

We worked with Michelle Elie for seven months, starting in Aug. 2013, in our search for a new home in the Chelsea school district. Throughout the entire process, Michelle was knowledgeable, responsive, professional and fun to work with. She is also well-connected in the Chelsea / Dexter area, which proved very helpful in getting our deal done. We would highly recommend Michelle to anyone seeking a professional realtor!

It seems to be so common for realtors to be pushy; to try to get you to make a purchase that you aren't completely confident with, so that they can benefit from a higher commission, quick sale, etc. We never experienced that with Michelle. One of her best qualities is her emotional awareness. She understands the emotion behind purchasing a home (especially your first) and is sensitive to that, encouraging buyers to "go with your gut".

Purchasing a home should be an exciting experience, not one full of uncertainty, and Michelle Elie naturally gets that. Michelle also has an ability to make you feel like you are her most important client. Through her attentiveness, responsiveness, punctuality, commitment, and presence, she makes the buyer feel important and comfortable. She truly is great to work with and I would recommend her to anyone.

Michelle always went above and beyond to help us find the perfect home... and she helped us for a WHILE (months and months and months...) as we got pickier and picker. She never got frustrated with us and was always ready to get us into any of the homes we wanted to see. (Sometimes e-mailing me back mere minutes after I e-mailed her the listing with a "I can get you in tomorrow". I would recommend Michelle Elie to anyone. She's knowledgable, efficient and a genuinely nice person who likes her job!

We have used Michelle Elie for four real estate transactions from 2004-2012.. She has always impressed us with her knowledge of the area, her ability to explain clearly (and in a timely manner) all steps that need to be taken to close the deal, and her ability to think outside the box for marketing. Her strong negotiation skills are the result of her confidence and professionalism.

During the most recent transaction we did with her, the agent for the buyer was not responding to requests, and Michelle went above and beyond to make sure that the deal kept moving forward. We would highly recommend her as an agent you can trust to work to get you a great deal if you are buying or selling a home.

Since our first meeting with Michelle Elie, she continually went above and beyond our expectations. She worked hard to understand our wants and needs, while also assuring we understood the market and local issues/opportunities. In 2011, she assisted my husband and I with purchasing our first home in Chelsea, MI. Late in 2012, we found out we were being relocated and had to put our home on the market. In a short amount of time, our home was listed and showings were scheduled.

While the home was up for sale, our family relocated to Tennessee. During what could be an extremely stressful time, Michelle was extremely supportive, volunteering to be available whenever we needed her to stop by the house or help take care of small issues. Less than 3 months later, the home is sold and we have Michelle's hard work, support and diligence to thank. We could not be happier with our realtor selection and recommend her 100% to anyone looking for a realtor in the area. You will be more than pleased with the result!
