Review for Michele Senitzer by Kevin T
My partner and I felt lost and overwhelmed when we started searching for our first home. Fortunately, a friend recommended Michele to us, and we quickly learned why she has earned her stellar reputation. Michele helped us examine which qualities in a home were important to us and which were flexible, and she patiently educated us on everything from comps, to disclosures, to contingencies. We went from complete novices to feeling like experts when we closed on our dream house less than 2 months later.
We never would have found our home — let alone closed — without Michele’s guidance. Michele worked around our busy schedules to meet online and in person, reviewing recent sales and teaching us about city ordinances and bidding psychology. Our search expanded from a single neighborhood to include multiple cities and even counties. Michele’s second-to-none knowledge of the East Bay prompted us to explore everywhere from Alameda to Richmond.
When we decided to place a bid, Michele and her team were available every step of the way. She recommended a wonderful inspector and gave us the confidence to make the strong offer that won us our home. Michele was instrumental in closing our quick escrow, wrangling all parties involved in order to get us the crucial numbers and answers that we needed under a tight deadline.
Nearly 2 months later, Michele continues to help us now as first-time homeowners. Facing new challenges in home maintenance and improvements, we know Michele is in our corner with her first-hand homeowner experience and list of trusted contractors. Michele’s exemplary expertise, professionalism, and kindness make her irreplaceable, and I would recommend no one else to someone looking to buy or sell their home.
