See what my clients have to say -
I just want to thank Michele McKay for a job well-done selling my Mom's house in Lafayette. Michele was very professional and always available when we needed her help. My mom's house was an unusual sale, as there were no responsible family members in the area, so my wife and I had to tackle the job long distance. Michele had tremendous resources to help us get through this, and we relied on her to be our eyes and ears on this project. When it was all said and done, the house sold prior to going on the MLS - for more than the asking price, closing was a piece of cake and we received full compensation for the house within 10 days. Michele did way more than we expected. Without her help we would not have sold the house as quickly as we did. Thank you again for doing a fantastic job.
... I have bought and sold several homes in the Bay Area over the years so I speak from experience when I say that Michele McKay is one of the best agents I have ever worked with. In selling my home in Lafayette I felt very lucky to be represented by Michele, who was so knowledgeable and proactive throughout. Calm and professional, she was always several steps ahead to keep things moving along smoothly. It never occurred to me beforehand that there would be any special benefit from Michele's architectural background, but her access to engineers and other experts and her ability to read and understand their sketches and reports turned out to be key to completing the sale. Thank You Michele!
