    • Michelle is a top tier professional working in a firm that has long established roots in the north Monterey County market. She goes the extra mile in every aspect of the sale process. I couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome of my property sale.

    • We met Michele Samples at an open house in Prunedale, CA and we were immediately impressed with her! She was very professional, nice, attentive, friendly and quick to answer our questions. It was then that we decided that she would be our realtor as we began our quest to purchase a home. Michele kept us in the loop and continually had homes for us to see. She had the patience to show us many homes and was able to answer questions about the properties. When we were not able to find an affordable home in our hometown, she was willing and traveled with us to other cities until we found the right home for us. She also traveled with us for the closing process and was by our side every step of the way. Michele was not only our Realtor, she became our dear and loved friend! We HIGHLY recommend Mechele Samples to anyone!!

    • Due to my husband's job, we were fortunate able to travel around the world and have had the experience of purchasing a few different houses. As my job lead me to Monterey, CA, we decided to purchase a forever home. I spoke to a variety of different realtors that showed me a variety of homes until I found Michele at one of the open house. When making such a large decision, I wanted to work with someone that I could trust and knowledgeable. Throughout the past several months, Michele has been there every step of the way. She has always answered every call, text or email no matter what time of day or night it was. Her professionalism, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated. I never felt that she was just trying to sell me a house, but that she was there to help me to make the best decision for my family. I'm highly recommend her to anyone that is searching to buy or sell. Thanks again to Michele for being such a pleasure to work with

    • Very knowledgeable and responded promptly for questions we had. Gave us good advice about getting our house ready for sale. Held at least 3 open houses and was willing to do more. Stayed in touch with us throughout the whole process of selling our home.

    • I was extremely fortunate to have Michele Samples represent me as a buyer and a seller. She was very knowledgable and very patient with all my questions and concerns. She was also available through email, phone and in person, which enabled me to expedite all needed paperwork in a timely manner. Michele is very professional and I would not hesitate to sign on with her again, as my realtor

    • MIchele made the process of first time home buying a smooth and enjoyable experience. She listened to what I wanted in a home and made sure my needs were being met. She was always very encouraging and upbeat. Always smiling and very engaging. I would recommend Michele to all new and experienced home buyers. She went above and beyond to make the process smooth and a very positive experience.

    • I was in the process of searching for a house to invest in as a rental unit and in doing so I met Michele at an open house. She was very understanding about how serious I was in making this investment and showed me numerous houses in an attempt to meet my strict requirements. She helped me find two different homes on which I made offers. But thanks to her, and some inspectors' help, I was able to back out of both offers after being told of some costly repairs needed to be made on those houses. Michele was very understanding about my concerns and did not make me feel guilty when I withdrew my offers. It was only with her six months of true patience, understanding and help that I was able to obtain a house that exceeded my strict expectations! May I take this opportunity to give her my true thanks and express my appreciation for all the care, concern and hard work she gave me in order to achieve my investment goal! Thank you so much Michele, you did a great job!!! Less

    • Michele was a wonderful agent. I met Michele at an open house and after working with other agents for a couple years, Michele was able to find me a place to call home. She was wick to return calls, she made a very scary process easy (first time home buyers), and really listened and understood or needs. She was actively involved every step of the way until the final notification of closing... On top of her quality work, she is an exceptionally sweet and smart person. When we buy again, now we know who to call

    • Michele is fantastic. Without her, I'm not sure we could have bought a home in California. We met her at a random open house, started talking, and stayed in touch as we continued the house search we had begun over 2 years before. Finally we came across the property that was truly the one for us and met our big dreams + limited budget, and Michele helped us purchase it. It was a long haul adventure with an escrow of over 5 months, but Michele hung in there with us and persevered to the end. Yet even when we had doubts, questions, almost changed our minds (because seriously the property and process were pretty crazy) - she never tried to push the sale through on us - she always checked in on what we wanted and talked it through with us. She's a great communicator, great with people, and obviously very effective in her work. We wholeheartedly recommend her as a realtor and happily retain her as a friend.
