When Michelle learned that our house was closing shortly she worked with us constantly to find the right new house to purchase and helped have it close the day after the other one did. She also has an outgoing get it done personality.

When I knew I was returning to Washington, my first thought was to contact Michelle again for our real estate needs. I have now bought 2 houses and sold 1 with Michelle. She's GREAT!

I specifically went back to Michelle to sell my house after she helped us buy it. She is a professional who knows the market and anticipates the needs of her clients. I will recommend everybody I know who relocates to WA to contact Michelle.

Michelle was a dream real estate agent come true. She was thorough, patient and detailed. After about the 3rd house we looked at, she tailored our search perfectly, as she knew what we were looking for. She took the time to be available around the clock to answer the questions customers always have. I would recommend Michelle to anyone looking for a professional, courteous and honest agent!

Michelle is an outstanding real estate professional. We highly recommend her services. We are a couple from Southern California anticipating a relocation to Washington State for a job transfer. We contacted Michelle in mid-March to look at homes in the Bainbridge Island, Poulsbo, and Port Ludlow areas. She was very efficient in organizing our search down to advising us about ferry schedules based on our planes' arrival and departure. Within a three day span we were able to see over 25 homes in our target areas. Michelle obviously has had a lot of experience with out-of-towners like us. She was sensitive to our housing preferences and, in a low keyed manner, was able to point out potential issues about a property we may have missed. This is why we trust Michelle and would call upon her again when the job transfer comes through.

I have bought and sold homes before and have never experienced the level of knowledge, instinct, and advice that I did with Michelle. She kept me focused on my house goal instead of getting focused on one aspect of a house. She took time to really listen to my needs in and hopes for my home and took care that the houses she should me met those needs and hopes. She gave me expert advice to protect me from making a potential mistake with the seller's agent. I highly recommend her to any age client.

Michelle's service was above excellent! She readily accomodated our weird schedules and assisted us when things got screwed up with the title company. My partner had open heart surgery and she worked very hard to ensure that we did not have to take the VERY long drive to Lacey, WA. in order to sign the closing papers. She arranged for us to sign the papers in Port Townsend where we were having to go anyway to pick up several prescriptions. She even came over to check up on how my partner was doing...something she did not have to do and was not directly connected with the closing. When selling the house in Lacey she chatted with neighbors to learn about the community sales and did a lot of informal marketing in addition to the regular, standarad agent activity. When a situation arose with the potential buyers, she graciously interceded and let our wishes be known in a manner that did not negatively impact the sale or price. Michelle was our agent when we bought our current home and she was great then also. She patiently worked with us over the course of several years as my partner lived here in WA., but I was living in Ohio and could only get out here periodically. She readily made time to show us houses whenever I could get out to the West Coast. That was why we wanted her as our agent when we sold the house in Lacey. We will definitely ask her to be our agent when/if we sell the house we currently live in and will recommend her to neighbors and friends needing a real estate agent. We cannot say enough good things about Michelle in terms of her professionalism, attentiveness, humor, friendliness and all around knowledge and exceptional service!!!

Michelle sold our home in approximately 1 month. She is truly the best realtor we have ever known in my life; having sold and purchased several homes in the last 20 years. We would use her again and have gone to her for referrals for out of state realtors. we would recommend Michelle to everyone with a real estate need, as she is truly the most honest, professional business woman we have ever met.

We are absolutely delighted with Michelle. She is someone whom we would recommend with no reservations whatsoever. We were first time home buyers and throughout the entire process Michelle did not once show us anything but a warm and professional attitude. A genuine jewel! We bounced back and forth between wanting to buy property and build on it or buy a ready to move in home and Michelle was supportive and understanding about every change we made. Outstanding!

Michelle worked with us as we flew back and forth between Ohio and WA. It took us over 2 years to get things settled to move to WA, and through it all she had patience and a great sense of humor, and worked within our schedules. Her expertise and experience were evident throughout, from types of houses to areas to HOA's, etc. We will gladly recommend her to everyone, she is absolutely the best!! She also has great contractor contacts for any work you might want to have done on your new home! We are so pleased with her, that we will have her selling a rental we own.

Margaret- I do want to apologize for not connecting with you in a prompt manner. It appeared we were playing a bit of phone tag. My current stats show that I get back to clients within a 5 hour time period. There are still many homes available that match your search criteria. Iíll send you a personal note and see if we can reschedule our appointment.

I was glad to have Michelle Girard working for me. I was able to smoothly complete my purchase from out of state with no hassles. Michelle found out what I was looking for and sent me potential properties for a long time until just the right one came along. She got my offer in and accepted before anyone else. She kept me in the loop and informed me of all the issues and requirements so I was able to respond in a timely manner. The purchase went really well and I am glad I had Michelle Girard and Zip Reality in my corner. Thanks, Craig Sprecher

She was full of great ideas for making the transaction happen, and although we didn't end up needing to draw on them, it was great to know she had tricks up her sleeve. We would not have been able to buy this incredible home without her help.

Michelle Girard was knowledgeable, responsive and a joy to work with. She made it possible for me to by a house when I lived out of state. Her extensive preparation for my trip out to see houses and follow up allowed me to buy a house with minimal work. Between her personal efforts and the website tools (appraisal values,) I was able to quickly identify the best value homes and negotiate a great deal. I could not have done it from out of state otherwise. I closed on the house a week after I moved here. Michelle is fantastic! I should know; this is my fourth home purchse in thirty years.

Michelle was key in helping me find the right home. While living in Hawaii she was my direct link to the Everett area even though Michelle did not work in the vicinity. She was my eyes, ears and nose for properties since I did this entire transaction on-line. I never saw the property until closing. She took many pictures and made sure that everything was to standards for a new home buyer. I'm very happy with the house she found for me and would recommend everyone to consider her and her staff.

She failed to use current MLS documents, allowed herself to be bullied by the selling agent, never kept up to date on the statis of the sale, was always confused as to what she was supposed to do or promised us she would do. Let the selling agent accuse us of breaking things during the house inspection, would not return calls and stated we would be $7,500 back in closing costs from seller when in reality we got only 5,900. On a whole she did not put the necessary time or effort into doing a professional sales job. I also want to know when we get our check from you guys--she said closing at first then said it would be mailed by the 15th big difference by since I no longer believe her I want an exact date back from you when we will get our money.
