When our much-beloved rental apartment was listed for sale by our landlords last year, my partner and I set out to purchase our first home. Prior to this, I had had NO idea why anyone would enlist the help of a real estate agent to buy! After all, the tools are all there on the internet for people to find what they're looking for, right? Wrong. The process was extremely frustrating, and it was obvious some selling agents we spoke to were trying to strongarm us into buying shoddy condos.
The moment we met Michaela, that all changed. Our search was a long one, on account of our small area of interest and exacting specifications, but she tirelessly worked to make sure we were happy. We were given customized property lists for many offerings not yet on the public websites, she arranged countless viewings and escorted us personally to every one. At the very moment I began to tire of looking, she gave us an amazing surprise: A unit in the building where we were already renting, on the exact same floor! It met every one of our needs, and had been listed not 24 hours before, which meant that we were able to put an offer down before it was advertised publicly. Michaela was our ally and advocate throughout the process, and she always went well beyond the extra mile. She is a warm, lovely person and a consummate professional, and I would recommend her services to absolutely anyone, but *especially* to first time buyers and sellers.
