Michelle Elie


About Me

Prior to my career in Real Estate, I worked nearly 20 years as a health care provider.  I cared for my patients then, and I care for my Real Estate clients now using many of the same skills. My ability to be cool under pressure, my sense of humor and a laid back demeanor enables me to work through what can be one of the most stressful times of a person's life; buying or selling a home. 


I am an expert in our local market and have extensive contacts that often time enable me to know of houses for sale that aren't yet on the market. I have been a sales leader in my market since I began Real Estate in 2000, and welcome you as my next successful transaction.


Whether you are looking to buy a new home or sell yours call me today at (734) 637-6376.

Michelle was wonderful!!! I have had the pleasure of dealing with her on several occasions. When I decided to sell there was question who I would contact. Michelle is hands down the best realtor I have dealt with.

Michelle was referred to me by a mutual friend. The referral was accompanied by a recommendation of the highest level. In my opinion Michelle exceeded in all categories. Her communication skills are superb, I was kept abreast of every detail, she responded to my inquiries almost immediately. On to of that she knows the market extremely will. Knowing that Real Estate Businesses were going to be allowed to re-open on May 7, after being shut down by COVID-19, Michelle encouraged me to list the condo such that we could have showings on May 7. On May 7 we had four showings and two showings scheduled for May 9 and one for May 11. On Friday May 8 we received two over list price offers, which resulted in a bidding war. 21 days later we closed the transaction. I would recommend Michelle to anyone.

Great experience working with Michelle. Despite our shelter in place restrictions she was so helpful in taking me through all the necessary steps to buy my wonderful house. She is very well organized and timely with all paperwork. Really made my “work” easy. I would highly recommend her for and real estate needs!

Michelle was recommended to me when I purchased my home in Chelsea. I immediately called her back when it was time for me to move away. She is very knowledgeable about the area and set a realistic estimate of sales price. The overall time on the market was very reasonable. She was very responsive to any questions that I had about the process. She would quickly reply to any of my emails, texts, or calls, including on evenings and weekends. Due to the distance I moved, I relied on Michelle for almost all of the details of the sale. Communication was just right, I felt like I knew everything that was happening, without being overwhelmed with messages. I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone in the area.

Bradley Rizzo 2020-04-20

Michelle did a great job for us. She's very responsive and knowledgeable about the real estate process. She has a calm demeanor and would be very easy to work with on either the buy or sell side.

obenaufc 2020-04-13

We heard many good things about Michelle from various people in the community. She helped us in purchasing our first home. Working with her was an absolute delight. She is a warm and relatable person that never pushed us in any direction. She also was calming in nature and reassured us not to panic. Michelle was always able to get us in to see houses quickly and was extremely adaptable with our ever-changing scheduling requests. Most importantly, she was pleasant to be around and time spent with her was enjoyable. She made this process fun! 10/10! We are forever grateful for crossing paths and appreciate her efforts beyond words.

jguth2 2020-03-20

Working with Michelle was the best real estate experience, I have ever had. (And my husband and I have bought and sold many properties ). My Mother had just moved into Assisted Living, and it was her home that we were selling. Along with being so consistently professional and a masterful expert in the Real Estate Arena, she displayed a compassion and caring for our situation that you very seldom experience among realtors. Whenever needed, she would take the time to go over each contract, inspection, number, etc.., with my Mother at her Assisted Living Residence, making the whole process so much easier for her. Michelle's integrity, earthiness, sense of humor, understanding, and respect for the process is unsurpassed. I would and have highly recommended her to others. She's not only the kind of realtor we all search for, she's the kind of friend you would love to have.

joanmoll811 2019-10-12

Michelle is the best. We looked at many houses but Michelle hung in there and didn't give up on us. She was always very quick in answering texts and phone calls. I would highly recommend Michelle Elie as your real estate agent

sewinglady87 2019-10-05

We have been working with Michelle Elie for a couple of years. We have been very specific on what what we were looking for. A couple of opportunities came up in the specific area we were looking at but the selling price was to high per her advice. We saw a for sale by owner in the area we wanted. We called Michelle and she gave excellent advice on what to offer even though she would not get a commission. We took her advice and now own the property. We subsequently listed our home for sale with Michelle and received two full offers within two days. Our house sold for the highest price ever in our area. A concern was the bank appraisal for the buyers. Michelle met with the bank appraiser at the house and pointed out the comparables and the extra features in our home. The appraisal came in at the full asking price. Michelle is a professional and was always pleasant to work with.

eric karen fred 2019-10-02

Michelle was very knowledgeable of the area and the market. She listened to me and understood what I was looking for. She was patient and professional - I highly recommend her!

zuser2299861 2019-08-29

Michelle was super patient and worked with us over the course of MANY months to help us find what we wanted in our first house. She picked up on responses we didn't even know we has as we wandered around houses and tailored her suggestions based on those responses. She was also able to tell us about the neighborhoods we were looking at, resources for our family in the area, and was very knowledgeable about the market in the area. She was also the reason that we ended up paying a lower price than we expected to! She was great to work with, our kids loved her and we love our house :)

elzbth miller 2019-08-14

Michelle was great to work with. We were buying a home in Chelsea, while living in another state, so she was a great source of information for us. She has an extensive knowledge of the area and neighborhoods, as well as the surrounding area. Since we were out of state most of the time, she toured several homes for us via FaceTime, which was very helpful. We would definitely recommend Michelle and will be using her in the future.

zuser20140615182740998 2019-08-06

It was a pleasure to work with Michelle Elie. She was a true professional and provided us with excellent service. Michelle communicated with us throughout the process of selling our home. It was a stress-free experience, thanks to her efforts.

zuser20170417163809652 2019-07-13

Michelle made the entire experience painless. Our house was sold in a matter of hours. I appreciated her recommendations and professionalism. She was responsive and honest.

vmcd233 2019-06-30

Michelle is an outstanding realtor! She will go above and beyond to find the right home! She's very patient and showed us a huge number of homes until we found the one for us! We found Michelle from her excellent reviews on Zillow and so glad we did!

David Cutler and Paula Maccini 2019-06-30

Michelle is a great real estate professional. She helped us find a wonderful home on a budget in Chelsea's competitive market. We got everything we were looking for! This was our first time buying a home, and Michelle was always available for questions and recommendations. We were able to move quickly when we saw something we liked, and Michelle made sure we were well prepared to make a competitive offer immediately. Michelle is knowledgeable and experienced, and we highly recommend contacting her if you are looking for a home!

zuser20141206105429153 2019-03-21

Nothing I write here could communicate adequately how amazing Michelle has been through this entire process. This was my first time buying a home, and she helped me along every step of the way. Michelle went above and beyond what I imagined a realtor would do, and she was fundamental in making this work for us. I should add that we moved here from overseas, which is overwhelming enough, let alone the craziness of stepping into the Ann Arbor housing market (I had no idea). Even while transitioning to the US, communication was always fluid and efficient. I will say that, without Michelle, we could not have done this so seamlessly. Michelle helped ease us into our lives here, and for that I will always be grateful. Michelle should be everyone's realtor!

Hilary Finchum-Sung 2019-02-14

Michelle was always available when needed. If we needed to get in contact with Michelle she was very prompt in responding. The professional manner in which she handled all interactions did not go unnoticed.

bassincliff 2018-12-19

Michelle worked hard to get us into our new home as quickly as we could have hoped for. If we had a question or an issue, it was handled promptly. Most of our issues that we experienced were on the end our buyer's financing. Michelle kept positive pressure on them to expedite before the holidays.

sspence44b 2018-12-19

Michelle has been our realtor for our last 2 homes. Anytime I had a question (which was often!) she always replied quickly and was so helpful from the beginning to the end. We've have nothing but positive experiences over the years with Michelle and would use her again in a heartbeat if we hadn't found our forever home! Any interested buyers or sellers I know, I'm always more than happy to send her way.

kandginthemountains 2018-11-12

I have had the pleasure of working with Michelle on the purchase of my last 2 homes. She is amazing at what she does and made it possible for me to buy my dream home. Michelle's knowledge of Chelsea and her personal and professional connections made it possible for us to buy our current home before it even went on the market. Michelle was also very flexible and accommodating to our hectic schedules when it came to arranging showings, etc. She's the best!

KimGreenstein 2018-10-19

We had nearly given up hope that we would ever find a lake house until Michelle reached out to us. She recalled from many years ago that we wanted to live on a specific lake and when the rare one came on the market she immediately contacted us. I was impressed that she remembered our goals and that she acted so quickly when a home became available. Michelle was very helpful, patient and consultative during the entire process.

tom higgins6 2018-08-04

Michelle was very professional and took the time to explain what we should expect from the home selling process. She was always responsive to our questions and really helped make our selling process easy. We would recommend her again.

dthompson0427 2018-05-20

Michelle has worked closely with me buying and selling two homes I lived in over the last 14 years. She is awesome! She is very professional, knows the process, tells you what is going on, explains the process, all the while is humorous, engaging, and is counselor to us while were dealing with moving plans, pets etc. Recently, just a couple of weeks ago, she sold my house in ONE DAY. This happened with the other house as well. Quite amazing. Not expecting this, but is true. Blessed. I highly recommend Michelle for any real estate needs. Thank you Michelle!!!

Mark OBoyle 2018-05-16

Simply put, Michelle is truly an outstanding realtor. We have worked with her on two purchases and a home sale in the past five years and were impressed again and again by her knowledge, professionalism, integrity, negotiating and people skills...and we had a lot of fun working with her! It is amazing how seemless the entire process is with Michelle. She has absolutely been one our favorite people to work with in ANY field.

markduykers 2018-04-21

Michelle is a great realtor to work with! She responded to each and every inquiry immediately. We value her wisdom, caring, and professional guidance. Michelle is a true advocate for her clients and we would highly recommend her.

betsy voshel 2018-03-12

Michelle did a wonderful job selling a house for our family. It went seamlessly and everything was taken care of. From the drone photos when there where still fall colors to dealing with the title company.

ddesmyther 2018-01-22

Michelle is professional and informative. She was very helpful when deciding on a home based on the style, price and quality my wife and I were searching for. She is a wonderful person who really goes above and beyond to negotiating for her clients and communicate to her clients. I appreciated her help greatly and felt that her suggestions were genuine and honest. I would highly recommend her to anyone in the market.

jjvilla87 2017-11-07

Michelle worked with us for over a year to assist us in finding our dream home. She patiently showed us countless homes, and negotiated several times before we landed "the one". We also sold our previous home through Michelle, and it sold the day we listed it, for asking price. Because of Michelle, we were able to achieve a lifelong dream.

Tammydz 2017-08-19

We had an amazing experience with Michelle and highly recommend her! My husband and I were trying to buy a new home and sell our current home at the same time--a very stressful and difficult task. Michelle showed us probably close to 30 homes. She made herself available and got showings set up on very short notice. When we were getting discouraged and thought we'd never find a home, she assured us that we would find something and we'd know as soon as we saw it. Of course, she was right! Michelle had our current home sold almost immediately, and we are now moving into our dream home! Michelle is a fantastic realtor. She knows and works with the best in the business--inspectors, lenders, etc. Unlike a lot of realtors, Michelle is in it to do what is best for her client and to get them in a home they will truly love!

Jodi Grindstaff 2017-07-26

I highly recommend Michelle Elie without reservation. If you want to sell your house, Michelle is the realtor for you. Being out of town, I was able to rely entirely on her expertise and finesse in handling all situations that arose. My confidence was rewarded with her continuous communications, reassurances, and trustworthiness. Once my condo was put on the market, she had it sold within a week for far more than I ever had expected. There is no doubt in my mind that Michelle "sold" my condo and that a lesser qualified realtor would not have been able to move my condo so smoothly, start to closing. If you want peace of mind with the sale of your home, Michelle Elie is the realtor for you.

sdevries23 2017-06-27

Michelle has a gift of being optimistic, realistic and sensitive to the needs of her clients. She walked us through every step along the way to a successful selling of our home. Because of Michelle, we knew what to expect at every turn. And we were extremely happy with the outcome!

user52384777 2017-05-17

I needed to sell a house that was in probate. Michelle made it easy, negotiated for a higher price than what I expected and everything was finished in record time.

Sherry Waite 2017-03-23

We loved working with Michelle. It was the first time we worked with a Realtor buying a new built home. So we did not know at first how valuable she would become for us. She was helping us out in all the process one needs to go through in buying real estate. She made valuable suggestions to us in the timing of the buy and in other variable aspects of this deal. Would we work with her again-YOU BET WE WOULD. J & B

catbems 2016-12-22

She did a great job got suggested useful staging ideas which resulted in my house being sold for asking price in 5 days! quickly answered any questions and helped manage a moving closing date also recommended high quality inspectors required

sckidhh 2016-12-08

Michelle's real estate expertise and service is unrivaled! Her high standards are apparent in her ability to work with all types of people and situations. We appreciated her knowledge and care through the process of selling our home, which actually sold within the first week. We will definitely recommend Michelle to anyone selling or buying a home.

Dianna kause 2016-11-24

Michelle was great in helping us not only sell our home in Dexter but purchase our home in the Brooklyn area. She made sure we were 100% satisfied with everything before moving forward and made the whole selling and buying process stress free. She knows her stuff and knows a lot about Washtenaw County and surrounding areas. I would recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.

zuser20150103165805822 2016-09-16

Michelle is a master of the realestate business. She was able to guide me through a sometimes joyful and sometimes frustrating process with ease and help me remain calm when needed.

alicebyrne52 2016-07-12

Michelle was excellent. She kept me calm and focused as I searched for a home in the very competitive Washtenaw County housing market. She had knowledge about all of the areas I was interested in and was very helpful in letting me know about the positives and negatives of each home I looked at. Her follow-through kept everyone on track and allowed the closing to happen on time. I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

zuser20141019200832252 2016-07-11

I enlisted Michelle's assistance after meeting her at an open house that she hosted as a listing agent. Michelle's knowledge of the area, good humor, down-home personality, and pressure-free sales discussion convinced me that she would be a good partner in my home purchase efforts. My search area included Chelsea, Dexter, and Ann Arbor, and Michelle was well-versed in each. She showed great patience throughout the process, as it took me awhile to tighten my focus on just what I wanted. Her local knowledge and contacts paid off for me, as she was able to get access for me to the home that fit my wishes before it hit the listing pages. Michelle helped make the home purchase process enjoyable. I have highly recommended her to my friends, and would expect to enlist her services as a realtor if I have any future real estate transactions.

john murphy89 2016-02-15

Michelle has assisted me in purchasing a house and now selling a house. Michelle is personable yet professional. Michelle will be the person I have as my realtor in the future.

2016thornhill 2016-01-26

If you live in the Chelsea-Ann Arbor area, you will want to contact Michelle. Michelle knows the surrounding areas really well and goes the extra mile to help you figure out what's best for YOU. She helps you make educated decisions in both buying and selling. A good example is the way she came prepared to help list my house with having done research in the area, came with estimates to show a range of possibilities and left it to us. She was very good about making me feel comfortable with the decisions I made, and ultimately sold the house in one week because she is THAT good. You will not be disappointed with what real estate knowledge and experience she can offer. Seriously call her!

Matt Taylor 2016-01-21

We met Michelle at an open house before we took the plunge into official house-hunting. We had been to many over the previous several weeks, meeting many realtors who were very nice but sometimes too "salesy" and just not quite right. We instantly liked Michelle and her style - very down to earth, honest, instinctively easy to talk to. Buying a home is stressful and on many levels a very emotional process. Michelle was so patient with us over the many months we searched (including 3 offers before the house we ended up purchasing). Very reassuring and ALWAYS looking out for our best interests. Not "salesy" at all, which was great for us. We truly appreciated the honesty and she got to know us so well that eventually she knew walking into a house that it was probably not for us. Highly recommended and though I hope to not be buying another house anytime soon, if we did we would definitely call Michelle again. Update March 2018: When we took a job opportunity out of state, there was no hesitation in calling Michelle again for the sale. She gave us great advice and handled all the details while we were out of state. It could not have gone better and it was reassuring to have her in Michigan and not have to worry about anything. Being down south, we totally forgot to hire someone to plow our long driveway (our house went on the market in December). Michelle not only reminded us, but hooked us up with someone to take care of the snow so there would be no deterrents to showings. She is always very responsive, and walked us through our remote signing. Highly recommended for buying or selling!

Elizabeth A Campbell 2015-12-01

Michelle didn't just "work" for us, she coached us through a sometimes challenging process. She knew the area VERY well and even recognized builders, patterns of construction, etc. We trully felt we had a member on our team, not just a realtor looking for a commission.

aug 11 leo 2015-12-01

Michelle was truly amazing. She always contacted me thru each process, and kept me Informed! She was so very helpful! I would definitely recommend her! Thank you so much Michelle!

donnafletcher2 2015-11-08

We chose Michelle as our seller's agent because of her outstanding reputation in the area and for her knowledge of the highly desired Chelsea area real estate market. She guaranteed to sell our downtown Chelsea home within days and for more than what we thought possible. She backed this up by selling it on the first day! We then hired Michelle as our buyer's agent. Our wish list had some very specific requirements. Her patience and persistence paid off when she not only found us a property that fulfilled our wish list, but also had some extras. And, when our original mortgage provider fell short of our expectations, Michelle came through for us with a highly-recommended alternative financing institution. Thank you, Michelle!

mazinkosky 2015-10-20

Michelle is tied into the local market, and had me set up with a showing within hours of a house coming onto the market. In a tight and competitive market, we had our offer in and accepted within hours of the showing, and Michelle was very helpful in walking me through the rest of the process, which was all new to me!

thomsona99 2015-10-14

Made a nerve wracking process so much easier to deal with. Very knowledgeable and supportive through entire home buying process. Definitely referring friends and family who need a real estate agent.

stephanie paul07 2015-08-12

Michelle was excellent at finding what I was looking for, understanding my priorities, and giving me honest and helpful considerations. She made my home purchase experience exceptional.

merripriddle 2015-04-13

Michelle is wonderful to work with! She has good knowledge of the area . We had a very difficult situation and Michelle was right there with us every step of the way! Michelle reviewed all our paperwork and made quite significant suggestions and changes. We did finally close on a great house in the right neighborhood for us. We highly recommend Michele Elie !

zuser20140416125939183 2015-02-09

I have had the opportunity to use Michelle several times in the past few years and have had a great experience every time. I am constantly amazed at her knowledge of Chelsea as she seems to know every home and person in town! She is easy to reach whenever I need to get in touch with her and her friendly personality and easy laugh make working with her a real pleasure. I manage quite a few rental properties in the Chelsea area and frequently get asked if there is a Realtor I would recommend - so of course I always recommend Michelle!

vonmiller5 2014-11-13

We our self are retired Realtors from San Diego, CA and we were impressed with Michelle's professionalism. Her knowledge of the Saline area is great and she gave us some very valuable tips on the houses we viewed. Her patience was endless even with us proverbial buyers from hell. We knew exactly what type of property we wanted which was almost impossible to find in this area but Michelle got us the wonderful place we now own. I recommend her to anybody who needs to sell or buy a house.

user1977055 2014-09-29

Michelle is a true professional. Our home was a one of kind, but Michelle took the time to thoroughly research comparable homes, She kept us informed during the whole process and made it easy for us. We highly recommend Michelle Elie.

hessmaryjo 2014-09-28

Michelle was highly recommended to me by a neighbor. I then engaged her to sell my large, restored historic home in Chelsea and, separately, my two-unit apartment house located behind it, and in my purchase of a modern condominium in Ann Arbor. She demonstrated broad knowledge and excellent judgment in determining pricing and marketing strategies. She was constructively responsive to all the "issues" that came up during these three transactions and gave advice that always proved to be sound. She maintained "electronic" contact with me as I traveled around the U.S. and overseas during the negotiating and sales processes and she worked "smoothly" with all parties. I recommend her without hesitation or reservation.

johnfrank99 2014-09-23

Our rural home required buyers specifically interested in that location, taking longer to sell. Michelle was great from the beginning; professional, honest, knowledgeable of the market and the community. Her encouraging and supportive nature, "down- to- earth" personality and great sense of humor made her wonderful and fun to work with. We would highly recommend Michelle as a Buyer's or Seller's agent.

zuser20140603163448128 2014-06-03

Michelle did an amazing job for us!! She knew about homes before they were even on the market. We had a very specific set of needs/wants and Michelle was spot on with everything. I would highly recommend her and will use her in all future transactions.

user63331432 2014-05-19

Could not have been happier. Michelle has great awareness of the area, points out things we didn't think about that we needed to know and gave us the feeling she had our best interest in mind. Highly recommend her!

AmyNavitskis 2014-04-30

My wife and I were very picky when we selected a real estate agent. We were extremely happy when we found Michelle Elie, as we were immediately impressed with her professionalism, caring, and helpfulness. She was integral in coming up with the listing price that we felt comfortable with, and we accepted the offer we wanted in three days of listing. Michelle was right there with us to overcome every obstacle in the sale of our house, and we closed on time. Time and time again Michelle impressed us with her knowledge of the profession, responsiveness, and market savvy. When it came to purchasing a home, Michelle presented us with incredible options to purchase, fought for us in every situation, and despite the ultra competitive market, was able to get us into the house of our dreams for the price we wanted to pay. We felt like we were her only clients. Michelle went above and beyond every expectation we had for our real estate sale and purchase. We happily recommend Michelle Elie as a real estate agent; she is the best.

shanerodriguez585 2014-04-30

Michelle went above and beyond to make the deal happen and meet our needs in a unique situation. Would not hesitate to use her again for future transactions A+++

amassey20 2014-04-02

We worked with Michelle for seven months, starting in Aug. 2013, in our search for a new home in the Chelsea school district. Throughout the entire process, Michelle was knowledgeable, responsive, professional and fun to work with. She is also well-connected in the Chelsea / Dexter area, which proved very helpful in getting our deal done. We would highly recommend Michelle to anyone seeking a professional realtor!

antjeduykers 2014-03-26

Michelle was so great to work with. She got our house sold!! We never had a doubt that she had our best interest in mind at all times. She was honest and ethical in every interaction we had with her. She knows her business amazingly well. We recommend Michelle to everyone and anyone that is need of a realtor.

katramos 2014-01-03

In 2013, Michelle helped me buy a home in the difficult Ann Arbor market and she was excellent in every way. In 2016, my life circumstances changed, and I needed to sell the house, so I listed it with Michelle. She was just as superb a seller's agent as she was a buyer's agent. The best thing about Michelle is that she puts the needs of her clients first. She understands the complex variables involved in a real estate transaction very well and offers timely and useful advice. She has excellent negotiation and communication skills. I recommend her mostly highly to anyone wishing to buy or sell a home in the Ann Arbor area!

koreabob 2013-12-23

Michelle was great and hard working. There was not a lot on the market so she really searched outside the MLS for possible homes, and it paid off. And she really knows Chelsea.

Thomas Atkins 2013-12-23

It seems to be so common for realtors to be pushy; to try to get you to make a purchase that you aren't completely confident with, so that they can benefit from a higher commission, quick sale, etc. We never experienced that with Michelle. One of her best qualities is her emotional awareness. She understands the emotion behind purchasing a home (especially your first) and is sensitive to that, encouraging buyers to "go with your gut". Purchasing a home should be an exciting experience, not one full of uncertainty, and Michelle naturally gets that. Michelle also has an ability to make you feel like you are her most important client. Through her attentiveness, responsiveness, punctuality, commitment, and presence, she makes the buyer feel important and comfortable. She truly is great to work with and I would recommend her to anyone.

user6398976 2013-07-25

Michelle was friendly, easy to work with, and effective! Although we pulled her out into an area she doesn't always work in, she was ready and willing to do the research needed to come up with a great asking price for our condo- and ensured that it sold above asking in just 3 days! Michelle clearly knows her stuff and keeps a close eye on the changing market. We literally didn't have to worry about anything with her in our corner. We would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking to sell (or buy!) in the Ann Arbor area.

user9444277 2013-07-23

Michelle is an expert in real estate!! She guided us through the process of listing our home, as well as the purchase of our next home. She was extremely responsive throughout the entire process and made sure that we understood all of the documents that we were presented. We found that Michelle has an amazing network of realtor colleagues, which allows her to work efficiently and effectively. What a blessing to have worked with Michelle...we would highly recommend her!

user2139156 2013-06-28

Michelle always went above and beyond to help us find the perfect home... and she helped us for a WHILE (months and months and months...) as we got pickier and picker. She never got frustrated with us and was always ready to get us into any of the homes we wanted to see. (Sometimes e-mailing me back mere minutes after I e-mailed her the listing with a "I can get you in tomorrow". I would recommend Michelle to anyone. She's knowledgable, efficient and a genuinely nice person who likes her job!

user7350132 2013-01-28

Since our first meeting with Michelle, she continually went above and beyond our expectations. She worked hard to understand our wants and needs, while also assuring we understood the market and local issues/opportunities. In 2011, she assisted my husband and I with purchasing our first home in Chelsea, MI. Late in 2012, we found out we were being relocated and had to put our home on the market. In a short amount of time, our home was listed and showings were scheduled. While the home was up for sale, our family relocated to Tennessee. During what could be an extremely stressful time, Michelle was extremely supportive, volunteering to be available whenever we needed her to stop by the house or help take care of small issues. Less than 3 months later, the home is sold and we have Michelle's hard work, support and diligence to thank. We could not be happier with our realtor selection and recommend her 100% to anyone looking for a realtor in the area. You will be more than pleased with the result!

We have used Michelle for four real estate transactions from 2004-2012.. She has always impressed us with her knowledge of the area, her ability to explain clearly (and in a timely manner) all steps that need to be taken to close the deal, and her ability to think outside the box for marketing. Her strong negotiation skills are the result of her confidence and professionalism. During the most recent transaction we did with her, the agent for the buyer was not responding to requests, and Michelle went above and beyond to make sure that the deal kept moving forward. We would highly recommend her as an agent you can trust to work to get you a great deal if you are buying or selling a home.

I was extremely pleased with Michelle Elie's work as a buyer's and seller's agent. She was very helpful to me, kept after it, and never dropped the ball. I contacted her inially because of a reference from a personal friend who recommended her as a "real pro".

We worked with Michelle this year in the purchase of a new house. It was a purchase made with a 1031 property exchange provision, thus it was complicated. Michelle was great in all ways, patient, persistent, knowledgeable. . If she didn't know all in and outs of something, she was quick to learn and inform quickly (such as this 1031 exchange) She was very responsive, and supportive. When ready to sell our current house, she will be the first person we call.

Michelle is the best! Her expertise and knowledge of the market had a buyer within a few weeks of property being list in late fall and at a better price than we expected, Her ethics and integrity was obvious and came to the forefront in helping the less experienced buyer's Realtor. And her response was timely and clear at answering our questions and explaining the procedures. We couldn't have asked for a better Realtor.

Michelle did a great job with us "first time home buyers." With all the back and forth and here and there and everywhere we wanted to look it would be enough to drive someone crazy. Not Michelle. She was very patient and very understanding of our situation. She explained the process of short sales and foreclosures, so not only did we get a great house we got educated in the process. The whole experience was painless and very smooth.

Michelle helped us with our purchase in Manchester. She really listens to what you want and need, then finds the perfect fit. She is full of knowledge and is great at answering any question you may have. She works hard for the sale and makes sure you get the best deal there is. I am so grateful that we had her on our side, since this was our first time buying a home. I recommend her to our friends and will continue to do so. She is great!

We bought a short sale, which took several months of paperwork and negotiation and is typical. Michelle was great at returning my calls, emails and staying on top of the banks to ensure our short sale purchase went as quickly and smoothly as possible. Michelle was great to work with. Chris

Michelle was our agent who became a friend. She went above and beyond trying to sell our house in this down market. I don't think we would of had the success that we did with out her. She was a blessing from God to us. I would highly recommend her to everyone.

We worked with Michelle on the purchase and sale of our home in Chelsea and I can tell you she is a 5-star real estate professional you should work with! We purchased our home in Chelsea at a result of a relocation for my position. Michelle was knowledgeable of the entire Ann Arbor/Dexter/Plymouth area and did a great job recommending an area that suited our needs, finding us a perfect fixer-upper to make our own. After a little over a year, we unexpectedly got relocated again and had to sell the our home. Michelle immediately began using her network to find us a buyer and ultimately landed multiple offers on our home in a slow market. She went above and beyond to keep the sale moving. Her negotiation tactics are spot on and her ability to have honest conversations with her clients, even when the topic was difficult, strong. She is a straight shooter with a wonderful reputation in the community. I feel confident in recommending Michelle to anyone.

Michele was a God-send to me, as I had never been in a position to purchase a home on my own. I felt so secure with her judgement and advice. She knew my needs and made sure that I was well advised. She delicately slowed me down when she thought I was going in the wrong direction and it benefited me greatly. Michele was also very knowledgeable with the entire real estate process and was surprised many times when she accompanied me to various things like my inspection and most importantly my closing. I would not hesitate to recommend Michele to anyone looking for a home.

Michelle was there in the beginning, middle and closing of our home buying process. She is personable, and was extremely helpful when it came to finding our new place. We would highly recommend her to others looking for a quality real estate agent with knowledge of the Ann Arbor, Chelsea, and Dexter area. -Dr. and Mrs. Vos

I've worked with Michelle for several years as my realtor in both buying and selling homes.And over these years she has always gone above and beyond what one would expect. i highly recommend her!

We could not have asked for a better realtor! Michelle was great! From being out of town and new to the area, she was able to tell us everything about the communities around us. Very personable, honest, friendly and professional. we would deck lately recommend her to Nyone in a heartbeat!!

Very knowledgeable about the Chelsea area housing market, schools, details that will make a house sell. She is always available, rapidly and accurately answers all questions and concerns. I had a offer on my house before it was listed! Many thanks!

Michelle was a pleasure to work with when we sold our house. She was also very helpful and patient with us when we searched for our new house in our dream neighborhood. I have already recommended her to other friends and will continue doing so.

Michelle was wonderful to work with. Responsive, friendly, reassuring and not pushy at all. She really tries to make sure you are comfortable wherever you are in the real estate process. I really appreciated how she reached out to our kids as well, talking to them, giving tips about the move and making them feel apart of the process. Those little touches make a huge difference. I would recommend her to anyone in the area.

Michelle has been working with us to sell our house as a short sale. She has made the process as painless as possible for us, from giving excellent advice to always answering emails and voice mails within very little time. We are now living out of state, and she has helped us keep an eye on our property and let us know when something needed to be fixed. She also understood our financial needs while we tried to sell our house and directed prospective tenants our way. She has been the best agent we have ever had!

I just completed my second home purchase with Michelle Elie as my agent. I have nothing but great things to say about her as a person and as an agent. Her knowledge of the area is outstanding. On my most recent home purchase she was able to get me into a house before it was even listed on the market! This resulted in me getting a jump on the other buyers and saved me a ton of money and I got the perfect house for my family. Michelle went above and beyond what most agents would do including driving over 100 miles to personally get a document that was required to close the deal. I have nothing but compliments for Michelle and I recommend her to my friends and family.

We recommend Michelle to anyone looking to move into the city. She is great and gets the job done.

Janice Ortbring 2011-01-24

Michelle helped us buy a new house that we love coming home to. She was very patient as we worked through a lot of options to find a home that met our needs, wants and budget. Michelle was very knowledgeable about the community and the market and that experience was invaluable in this unusual housing market. She never pushed us to make a quick decision, never pressured us to choose a more expensive property that might have been to her benefit and was willing to pursue difficult (short/foreclosure) situations. We felt very comfortable working with Michelle as our buyers' agent. She really was a joy to work with and made the whole project a fun adventure.

We were extremely happy working with Michelle in 2010, after having little response or relationship with a different realtor used in 2009 to try to sell the same property. Michelle understood our position, knew the market well, and helped us reach our goal of selling the property with some gain. We appreciated her timely responses to questions during the negotiation process and in assisting us to get quotes to make required improvements, all while we lived 2000 miles away. She's a gem of a realtor.

We listed our house with Michelle in the spring of 2009 when the market was the worst it had been in anyone’s memory. We sold it within a few months for a price we were happy with. Several serious problems arose during the inspection, and she helped us resolve them quickly and inexpensively so that the closing took place right on schedule. We found her to be tremendously professional and helpful throughout the entire process. She also helped us find a condo to buy, and we found that her knowledge of the local market was extremely helpful. She gave us excellent advice throughout the entire process. She is a delight to work with, and we could not recommend her more highly.
