Michele Harkov was so helpful as we decided to sell our home with no advanced planning as we fell in love with another home in a nearby city. She was responsive and worked well with our other agent (as our offer on the new house was on contingency of selling our home). She helped us get the house ready and on the market very quickly. She was also really great at following up with showing agents on every viewing. This was all during COVID, which she handled seamlessly for us as well. We would definitely recommend Michele.

Michele is a consummate professional and a wonderful person, all wrapped up in one. We have now used her in multiple home sales and purchases and would not use anyone else. On the sale side, she and her team remove all of the stress and really take care of everything—from assessing which repairs and modifications are necessary and most meaningful, to finding the right vendors and ensuring that the work is done right, to securing beautiful photos and brochures on the marketing side and ultimately making sure the home shows at its best and the offers come in. On the purchase side, Michele ‘s kindness and honesty merge with her shrewd business sense. She will not only help you find just the right place, but also drive the best possible deal and keep you fully informed, all with transparency, integrity, humor, and grace.

Michele plainly loves her work, and makes her clients feel valued, listened to, cared for and appreciated. She is a special person and a fantastic professional. We couldn’t recommend her any higher.

Michele Harkov was an outstanding partner in helping us to sell our first home. She helped us through the process every step of the way, kept us calm during the emotional phases of negotiation, and in the end I am confident that we were able to receive the maximum value during the sale. We will certainly be reaching out to Michele again the next time we need to buy or sell a home.

Michele is a true gem in a very crowded real estate market. She is attentive, smart, sincere, caring, warm, and professional. Michele really listened to us during our house search. She kept us in the loop at each step during the purchase process and made professional recommendations along the way. Michele is a good listener and is very detail oriented. She made our home purchase very memorable. Michele made us feel like valuable clients and friends.

I have nothing but great things to say about Michele Harkov. We were first time home buyers and Michele went above an beyond to help us find a home. She was always available, professional, kind, and really cared about finding us the right home. In the California market, even if you are knowledgeable about real-estate, you need someone who stays on top of the fast moving market and is quick to act on finding homes and getting the process of buying the home started. Michele knows the market very well and will help her clients to her fullest extent. She makes you feel like you are her only client and is always available for you. Michele will not only help you find the right home but she will help you with all the things you need after moving in. She will make sure you understand the taxes you owe and send you reminders, she will send you referrals for handymen, contractors, landscape, and basically anything else you need, and she will check in on you far after the sell of the home to make sure things are going well. I would recommend Michele to family, friends, and anyone else looking to buy or sell a home. We will definitely be using her in the future for any real-estate/home buying/selling needs.

Michele is an awesome realtor. She helped us to list and sell a property in Pacifica. She is efficient, honest and experienced. She led us through every step of the way, gave us the guidance, helped us to set the right expectations, and helped us close the deal quickly with great quality. She and her team were very efficient, from staging to inspection, getting contractor/handymen to fix problems, and work tirelessly. Not only that we sold the property quickly, it also saved me a lot of time. I couldn't have hoped for a better listing agent. Highly recommend to anyone who would ask me.

Michelle is a first class realtory. She lead us through the journey of buying our first house, not just as an advisor, but as a friend, a person that deeply understood our needs, managed to wipe away our worries with actionable advice, and was fully avaliable throughtout the process to answer any question we had. She is kind, she is open hearted, she understands the needs of her clients, and she deeply cares about the whole journey. She is a woman of full professional integrity, and I couldnt have imagined anyone else to lead us through this journey.

Michele helped me in purchasing my first home. She has the qualities that make her an extremely successful and effective realtor. I can’t say enough about her professionalism and knowledge within the industry. She has high integrity and is very conscientious and tenacious, always keeping the clients best interests in mind.

Michele does a great job of listening to her client’s needs and does not waste time showing properties which do not meet the client’s objectives. She does research to assist with assessing a fair market value of the property for the offer and then negotiates effectively with the opposing broker on behalf of the client. She is extremely responsive to questions, often responding immediately to late night emails. Michele shows great attention to details enabling the transaction to get done. There was a hiccup with my financing and she was truly helpful in getting everything done in time to close. I have the highest level of confidence in her.

My wife and I were planning on selling our first home and our original agent had retired, so I was assessing other agents when I met Michele at an open house (pre-Covid). The way the home was staged and the details for the open house led us to interview Michele and she easily became our top choice. Michele and her team helped us focus on what needed to be done and how best to do it (colors, styles, materials, etc) to get our old house ready for sale. She was great during pandemic restrictions to still get it listed, shown, and sold in about two weeks. The back end paperwork went seamlessly and we never felt confused or uncomfortable with all the forms.

I highly recommend Michele if you are in need of a true professional.

Michele played a critical role in helping us find our dream home. Her knowledge of the area set us up for success in a competitive market. Not only was she a fantastic and responsive guide for us in the process, I felt confident in her honest and straightforward approach to negotiating. Michele is easy to work with and I have already recommended her to friends and family interested in buying a home.

It was an absolutely pleasure working with Michele and Liz on the sale and purchase of our home. From their expansive local knowledge, poise, class and professionalism, no aspect of our real estate needs were left unmet. Among many other wonderful attributes and offerings, Michele provided extensive school district knowledge which was of paramount importance to our search, while Liz effortlessly bestowed upon us her vast and impressive familiarity with our geographical search area. Both worked tirelessly and our family is grateful to have them on our team for years to come, except we love our new house so much we may never move ... maybe investment properties!

I highly recommend Michele and Liz. They have been extremely helpful in the process. They are knowledgeable and diligent, they are there for me any time. I was lucky to have had the opportunity working with them. I'm completely satisfied with their work.

Prior to my house in Emerald Hills going on the market, I interviewed 10
Real Estate Agents.My house needed roof work, carpeting,exterior and interior painting , landscaping and handyman work. Liz and Michele came with a team and a budget, no one else came close to their level of professionalism and competence.They came in on time and under budget.I had already moved to Scottsdale,Arizona.I had confidence and peace of mind 800 miles away as they did the project management.When my home was ready to be put on the market,they had previously developed and then executed an outstanding marketing plan.Open houses,internet coverage,videos..all first rate.My home sold in a tough off market period within 2 weeks.In my careers in the military and the corporate world I haven’t come across a team that could surpass their professional and expertise.Michele and Liz are women of honor and integrity,which is a rarity in the world today.We started a clients in a business relationship and ended as friends.I highly recommend them.

My husband and I had an excellent experience working with Michele. We were first time home buyers, and Michele help us navigate a competitive and challenging real estate market. Michele was hardworking, positive, and patient. She was always available, even late in the evening and at the last minute. Despite our relatively modest budget, we always felt like we were high priority clients. Overall, it was a pleasure to work with Michele and we are so thankful that she helped us secure a great home for our family.

My husband and I highly recommends Michele for any real state transactions.
She helped us get the townhouse that we love in a nice and quiet neighborhood. Michele is very knowledgeable, responsive and very patient. She is very accomodating and tries her best to be available whenever we want to see a house even on weekends and late evenings. She responds to our call and text anytime of the day. Even after we already move in to our new home, she is always checking in to make sure that we are not having any problems or any questions. We couldn't ask fo more, love her so much...

My husband and I highly recommend Michele as a realtor. We were referred to her after we were completely dejected with our house search. Michele worked endlessly to get our interest back into house hunting and voila we found a house much better than our expectations. Michele kept us informed of all current listings / potential listings through the search. Once our bid was accepted, she hand held us through the entire process and made it a breeze.

It was absolutely wonderful to work with Michele and Liz as they are very detail oriented and very well connected.

My wife and I are first time home buyers thanks to Michele. During our home search it seemed like Michele's life revolved around ours with last minute open house requests, offers, and phone conversations at all hours of the day. She always made time for us, went about her job professionally, and in the end her hard work paid off for us. We got the house of our dreams!

I highly recommend Michele Harkov as a realtor. She worked tirelessly until we found the right home and then made sure that the sale went through as planned. Michele was very prompt in responding to questions and made sure every detail was attended to. She was also instrumental in helping us find the help we needed to make changes to the house once we owned it. As newcomers to the Bay Area we needed lots of help and Michele has been there for us every step of the way. I think Michele's responsiveness to clients and willingness to stay on board after the sale is made are exceptional in this real estate market.

Honest, forthright and diligent, Michele and Liz were a delight to work with. They handled the sale of my home smoothly and swiftly, managing all the details with care. Communication was great, with weekly status calls throughout the process and always a quick reply to emails, texts or calls when I had questions. I highly recommend them!

We had a great experience working with Michele! She was very responsive and knowledgeable, and she got us everything we wanted as first-time homebuyers. We felt very confident in her advice and the negotiating she did. We plan to work with her if we need a realtor in the future, and we would highly recommend her!

Michele handled all the details of selling our mother's property. She worked within our timeline and budget to get the house ready for market. Once on the market, it sold within a week. We were very happy with Michele's service and expertise as well as her easy going personality. We felt confident in her ability to get the best price possible for our childhood home. I highly recommend Michele to anyone selling their home in the Bay Area and beyond.
