Past client comments on the professionalism, service and expertise of Michelle Silverman!
WE LOVE MICHELLE. We chose Michelle because of a story we heard about her from a friend who used her. Short version is that the last time we bought a home we felt like our agent didn't really fight for us, and our friend, who bought a house at the same time we had, shared how Michelle really worked so hard to get them into a home. As we decided to sell that home and upgrade to a new one, we immediately called Michelle. She worked so hard for us, she called on any house we asked her to call about, she followed up on homes we'd lost out on to see if the buyer had fallen through... She just was always there clearly working hard to help us find a home. As we sold ours and realized we needed to move in to an apt while we continued our search, in all our high stress Michelle was calm and kept us grounded. She has become part of our family and now that we have a home, we honestly miss her! She gives off a great vibe, works hard, understands how to manage her client's stress, and is clearly very experienced. And, we ended up in LITERALLY our dream home. Next up, buying investment property and we will definitely be using Michelle!

Michelle represented us as a seller's agent this summer and now that the sale has been finalized I can say with total confidence that Michelle is AWESOME. Back story: My mom passed away last February (Michelle represented my mom back in 2006 when she bought this house originally) and I was named the executor of her estate and trust. I had known Michelle a little through my siblings (who have both worked with Michelle on home purchases) and of course through my mom, but I live in Northern Calif. and had never worked with Michelle directly....I had to trust my siblings when they said she would be the best person to help us sell our mom's house. They were 100% right. Michelle was great to work with - she is very communicative, she knows her market, she is funny and real, and she gave me great advice when I needed it. She's also tenacious and she works hard every day for her clients. I never felt as though I was bothering her or asking any silly questions - she was there for me every step of the way during what has been the very hardest time in my life, losing my mom. Selling a home under these circumstances is very tricky, but that fact that Michelle already knew us made the process so much easier. I can't thank her enough. I would absolutely work with her again.

It was a pleasure working with Michelle. She is efficient and knowledgeable. I recommend working with her. She helped get us the La Jolla condo we wanted.
- Joseph Alpert
"Working with Michelle for not one, but two transactions was nothing short of amazing. Michelle was able to get us top dollar for our home in La Jolla, which can be difficult to do in this price point. She worked diligently to facilitate all showings while maintaining the highest level of local and national marketing. If selling our home for top dollar wasn't enough, she found us a perfect new home in a short amount of time! Selling can be extremely stressful, not to mention the pressure of having to buy quickly after. Michelle was able to alleviate our stress by remaining a consummate professional throughout the entirety of both transactions. I would recommend her to anybody!"
Michelle has been our personal realtor for over 20 years. One should consider themselves lucky and blessed to have her working for them. She stays on top of the process and will go out of her way to ensure a smooth transition. We will NEVER switch to another realtor because of Michelle's commitment to us as her client. I encourage you to give her a chance to work to sell your property or help you through the negation process of purchasing a property. You will be so glad you did!!

George and I have known Michelle for over ten years. Michelle is a consummate professional and she is at the top of her game. Not only does she have decades of experience handling high end transactions, but also she's a hands on agent who was there with us every step of the way. She has handled three different real estate transactions for us. Due to Michelle and her team's marketing efforts and negotiation skills, our latest property in Pacific Beach received a full price offer in less than three days. We are already planning on listing our next property with Michelle!

As a first time home buyer, I was thankful that Michelle Silverman was there to guide me through every step of the home buying process. The moment we started working together I was amazed on how fast she was able to find me my dream home. Her superb negotiation skills allowed my offer to be accepted above others. Being a first time buyer I was unfamiliar with the process and Michelle patiently walked me through all the steps from removing contingencies to the final walk. I could never have done it without her. Michelle is a true professional with all her years of knowledge with San Diego real estate. I highly recommend her. She’s the best!
Thank you Michelle for all your work in salvaging the sale process of Mom's condo. Your professionalism, honesty and focus, your encouragement and help in walking me through all the confusion, line by line, step by step, let alone thousands of miles away will always be recalled with gratitude. Your calm voice, efficient work, and keen eye, and willingness to go the extra mile to untangle the messes, turned things around in a blink. I am in awe and admiration. You have my highest appreciation and recommendation - bravo for a job well done. And blessing to Rene for sharing you. With love, you new friend
Finding Michelle was the best thing that could have happened to make our dream of living in San Diego come true. We first contacted her several years prior to buying our home, when we considered relocating to the area. Michelle literally spent years advising and helping us keep track of the market until we were ready to buy a home. Once we started looking seriously, she clearly understood what we wanted for our new home. She was an unending source of wisdom on which of the distinct neighborhoods in the San Diego.
-Marilyn and Richard
"Because she has lived in San Diego her whole life, Michelle has an intimate knowledge of many neighborhoods and was able to provide me with information that I would not have otherwise had access to. As a first time home buyer, when I finally found the right home I was totally unfamiliar with the processes of making an offer, working through contingencies, etc. Michelle patiently walked me through this process. From the start of the searching process to finally closing escrow Michelle proved herself to be very competent and also a pleasure to work with."
- Brandon L.
"Michelle is one of the hardest working people I know. She has always had a positive attitude and big smile. I tell everyone I know about Michelle and now I’m sharing with all of you. She is truly the best realtor in San Diego and, best of all, a great friend."
- Michelle Morgan
"I want to thank Michelle Silverman for a very professional and personal touch with all the ups and downs connected with the sale of my property in Pacific Beach her advice was priceless. Thank you Michelle!"
- Anne and Rodney Burks
“As first-time California buyers, we could not have had a better experience working with Michelle. Her deep knowledge of the San Diego real estate market helped us find the neighborhoods that were right for us. She was constantly on top of new listings – which led us to finding just the right house for us, the morning it went on the market and guiding us through a quick offer, negotiation and acceptance. And it didn’t end there – Michelle was there for every inspection, every estimate – even when we couldn’t be. I can’t imagine working with a real estate agent who was easier to work with, more responsive, or more knowledgeable. The entire experience and the outcome exceeded our expectations in every way.”
– Rebecca and Jim
“Thank you for helping me find the perfect little home. Thank you for everything!”
“Michelle Silverman, a Realtor for all times. I am speaking from my heart. You sold two properties for me . I can not thank you enough. I will be forever grateful for your professionalism. Michelle, your genuine relationship and service you provided for me was most appreciated. Michelle, you are very special, valuable and trustworthy beyond measure.”
– B.J. King
“I wanted to thank you for the extraordinary job you did in helping us sell the family home. I realize it was not the usual type of transaction and that is what made your expertise especially valuable. In every situation that arose, you were quick to respond with a solution. Starting with the elimination of personal items that needed to be donated, (of which we were the recipients of additional tax deductions), to fixing a leaking hot water heater the day of our open house; to selecting just the right paint colors for optimal effect. In addition to all the behind the scenes work you did, you knew exactly how to price our home for a quick sale. With four offers in hand, you deftly helped advise me on the right offer for a smooth transaction. All of this was invaluable input for an out of town seller looking for someone to get the job done. Michelle, many kudos and thanks. Anytime you need a referral, please think of me as one of your most satisfied clients.”
– John S.
“It was only through your positive attitude, dedicated work ethic and perseverance that I was able to accomplish my goals. Specifically, you always returned calls, usually with in the hour received, consistently provided me with accurate, up-to-date information, and made yourself available at MY convenience, rather than YOURS. In sum, you did everything a homeowner expects from a real estate agent, and more. I would highly recommend you … without condition or reservation.”
– Sandra B.
“We really appreciated all your hard work…. you really go above and beyond the call of duty. We hope you will be available in a couple of years when the kids come along and we outgrow this house.”
– Michelle and Chris
“What a difference having an experienced agent really makes. We especially appreciated the time you took to educate us at every step in the process. It actually made buying a house fun. We will recommend you to all our friends and colleagues looking for a quality agent who gets the job done and cares about her customers.”
– Lynne S. & Lorrayne S.
“No words can express our gratitude and appreciation for your help. You went above and beyond the call of duty . Your knowledge and professionalism are truly awesome. Your poise, push and personality are rare qualities in today’s business world. Your thoughtfulness and attention to each detail were amazing. We only wish we had six more houses for your to sell. You can be sure we’ll tell everyone we know about you.”
– Cathy and Bob C.
“You made the process of selling and buying my homes appear seamless. You made me feel extremely comfortable during the entire escrow period and took time to help me negotiate the maximum selling price and the minimum purchase price for the homes I sold and purchased, respectively.”
– Michael B.
“Thanks for making a truly traumatic experience tolerable, and helping sell Mother’s house in such a painless and efficient manner. After meeting with three real estate agents prior to being introduced to you, there isn’t a doubt in my mind that I made the right choice. My living out-of-state made it even that more difficult for you and I appreciate your patience as we went through the offers and negotiations. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your expertise, knowledge and enthusiasm to anyone that might need your services and if we ever consider buying property in San Diego again you will be the first person I call.”
