More about Michelle Shones

Whether you are buying or selling a home, Michelle would be honored to have the opportunity to earn your business and help you achieve your dream. Michelle grew up as part of a close knit family in Alaska where she learned to love the outdoors and some basic values that have followed her through life. Respect others, share what you have, know who you are, accept what life brings and have patience. It's these values that gave her the courage to move to California and eventually Virginia, miles away from everything and everyone she knew. She spent 12 years in Virginia enjoying the warm Atlantic Ocean and managing a commercial property portfolio for a small investment firm. She excelled in her ventures, increasing profits and growing a name for herself. While Michelle enjoyed her time and experiences in Virginia, she missed her family. She decided to sell her house and move to Oregon. ...

    • She is by far, the most honest and true individual in the business. If there's an answer she doesn't know. She goes out of her way to find it. She's with you 100% of the way from showings to closing and keeps the same real smile on her face.I'd buy another home from Michelle, in a heartbeat.

    • I've worked with 6 realtors since my first home purchase and Michelle was by far the best. She was patient with us even though we were finicky, shuttling all over the valley to help us find the house for us, and (once we found a home we liked) she performed expertly through a fairly complicated home purchase.We weren't sure what we were really looking for and the choices seemed almost endless. She worked long hours to help us refine our search and seemed to intuitively know what we needed, even though we weren't sure ourselves. She helped us weed through all the over priced fixer-uppers and those nice houses in questionable neighborhoods. Because of her extensive efforts behind the scenes we didn't have to take excessive time visiting house after house and, before we knew it, we were walking through the perfect home for us.Once we decided to put in an offer Michelle really kicked it up a notch. She noticed issues the listing agent missed and acted in our best interest, time and again, despite it being extra work for her. Michelle Really shined after the inspection, when some issues with the house arose. She approached the process for negotiating repairs with positivity, patients and resolve.The previous owners were less than forthcoming with the issues and resolutions and Michelle Helped us throughout the entire process with poise, grace, and candor. Her calm demeanor, combined with no-nonsense advocacy, helped us come out ahead with the best house for us at an amazing price, given the market.Michelle was knowledgeable and forthright and always acted in our best interest. On the rare occasion that she didn't know the answer to a questions she was able to find them quickly and reliably. Not only could we trust her to always have our interest at heart, we felt like we were her only clients. she is amazing.I can't recommend her highly enough to do her justice. Well done Michelle and thank you for helping us find our perfect home.

    • I went through about a dozen agents that hardly wanted to work with someone in my situation. I was a first time home buyer and I didn't have a lot of room to work with. I had looked at a hundred houses that would never work for my loan or be "worth the trouble" to the agents. I was giving up and then I started working with Michelle. It really wasn't long before she found the right house. She worked for me and found what I needed, what worked for me and my situation. She wasn't in it for her own gain, she wanted to help my gain. She explained everything to me and took care of everything because I had no clue how buying a home worked. She made the whole experience stress free. Now I'm a happy home owner.

    • If you are looking for a gentle and kind agent for a difficult transaction? Look no further. Michelle has a powerful, soft-spoken grace that she humbly may not realize...and that makes her a force to be reckoned with. I would trust this gal with any sensitive issue, you'll agree when you meet her. Get her out for coffee!

    • My husband and I felt defeated trying to purchase our first home. We originally had a realtor that wasn't putting our needs or considerations first and eventually told us to keep renting. That is when we found Michelle. She gave us hope, she never pressured us and eventually helped us buy our first home perfect for our little family of four. She made the process so simple and walked us through every step of the way. We are forever grateful for her and will have a lifelong Realtor because of it! If you are on the fence about anything she will help you see both sides of it and when buying a house you need someone like that! She truly has a gift, let her be part of making your dreams come true!

    • I was helping to find a very particular property for an out-of-state friend. Michelle listened to what was required and what was affordable and did a fabulous job of directing the search, resulting in happy results all around. No time wasted on unsuitable or pie-in-the-sky properties, just the ones most likely to fit our criteria!

    • I highly recommend Michelle for all of your real estate needs. She was so patient with me in the recent purchase of my home. We looked at so many houses so I could purchase the one that was right for me. She listened to what I wanted and was able to find the perfect home. As an inexperienced home buyer, her knowledge was beyond helpful and invaluable.
