Client Testimonials

“I can’t imagine anyone more capable and wonderful to guide us through the process of selling and buying a home than Michele Sanchez. She was patient, and helpful as we spent about a year on the hunt, and once we found the house of our dreams, guided us through the process of making an offer that would be accepted. As for selling our first home, she offered great advice on what to fix, and how to appeal to buyers. The day after our first (and only) open house, we had multiple over-asking offers, and Michele helped us choose the best buyer. She was always available for every inspection, appointment, and walk-through, and helped manage all of the details flawlessly. We felt like we were her top priority, and completely comfortable sharing our personal information. She was also brilliant working with our buyer’s and seller’s realtors, so I’m sure that was an asset, and partly responsible for our offer being the chosen one for our new home. We can’t thank you enough Michele!” ~ Claire Pettibone & Guy Toley
“We are so grateful we had Michele Sanchez by our side while we were buying our first home! Michele helped us work through every decision, providing thoughtful advice and making sure we weren't rushed. She not only negotiated a great deal for us, but also helped us stay calm through the inspections process. Buying our first home was an intimidating prospect, but Michele’s extensive market knowledge, deal-making experience, and great sense of humor, gave us confidence and made the process enjoyable to boot!” ~ Kathryn & Michael Converse
“Michele, thank you again for all of your help. Words cannot express how much we appreciate your 200%+ on doing literally everything for us AND getting us a great price. You made our crazy last minute decision work smoothly, quickly, and perfectly!!! Thank god for you, you swooped in, quietly, and put all the pieces perfectly in place, and for that, we are forever thankful.” ~ Aimee & Mike Mitchell
“During a complicated residential real estate sale involving a divorce, Michele and Lindsay represented one of the sellers with the utmost professionalism, integrity, and attention to detail. They instilled confidence in the first interaction, when they revealed that they have a policy of not representing the buyer and the seller in the same transaction in order to avoid conflicts of interest. That set the tone for the entire listing process and escrow. They worked hard and were amazingly responsive to phone calls and emails. I was incredibly impressed by their real estate savvy, as well as their nuanced approach to conflict. They make an amazing team, and I am incredibly grateful for their dedication to their profession. Lindsay and Michele are the epitome of what real estate agents should be to their clients.” ~ Kathleen J. Dillon, Esq., M.D.R.
“It is with the greatest of pleasure that I am writing to recommend Michele Sanchez and Lindsay Ratkovich as an outstanding real estate team. Their sensitivity and expertise made selling the house I had lived in for 37 years a seamless experience. Their knowledge of the Carthay area gave me confidence throughout the intricacies of pricing, timing, sorting out offers, and all that is involved with closing. Michele and Lindsay’s positive, supportive manner was ever present, and they sold the house within a week. I am grateful that these wonderful professionals made the entire process proceed smoothly and successfully.” ~ Susan Stockhammer
“Our development appreciated Lindsay and Michele’s local knowledge of both Lafayette Square and the surrounding markets - it was crucial in getting the above asking price we never thought possible. We knew this would be tough to appraise and their leg work on all fronts led us to a successful closing. They went the extra mile on their marketing efforts and were present on the property for all showings, not only selling but functioning as a local partner would when we couldn't be on site.” ~ Rob Berry
“Michele Sanchez guided us through both selling and buying a home in a tricky market during the holidays with grace and aplomb. Always accommodating and willing to go the extra mile without hesitation, Michele consistently exceeded our expectations of the entire process and our relationship with our agent. With her combination of consummate professionalism and intuitive personal kindness and consideration she transformed a typically stressful experience into one that was actually pleasant. In addition, Michele, was acutely attuned to our personal taste, needs and desires for our new home and aided us in finding a house in which we are very, very happy. We couldn’t be more pleased with Michele and are grateful for the gift of working with her for this important transition for our family.” ~ Amy & Neal Fraser
“Michele’s understanding of the market helped us to set a strategy that led to many offers within six days of listing our home. She then shepherded everyone through escrow to a smooth close, navigating the inevitable unexpected hurdles along the way. When we bought our new house (which had several bidders), she gave invaluable counsel on everything from offer strategy, to inspections, to finding vendors to beautify the home. Michele was focused on the entire scope of the buying and selling process. She does all of this with an upbeat, friendly approach, and genuine tact and thoughtfulness. She maximized our time and money and made us look good to the people with whom we did business. We would work with her again and recommend her to friends with confidence.” ~ Keith & Erika Quinn
“Michele and Lindsay were so professional and conscientious about every detail in helping us sell our home. They were on top of every detail and absolutely a pleasure to work with.” ~ Anna & Gavin Milner
