Michelle Gillespie, Realtor, Leading Edge Agent
I want to wish you all a happy holiday season and prosperous New Year. As I look back, the 2017 real estate market was great! Housing inventory has decreased, and buyers are looking for new inventory, indicating that 2018 will be a robust year for real estate with appreciating sale prices.
A special thank you to all my clients for choosing me as their Realtor and for making 2017 another successful year. I truly appreciate your business and am looking forward to a successful 2018 real estate year.
Selling to downsize
“Michelle Gillespie has the four necessary traits of a great Realtor. She is professional, passionate, patient and personable. We highly recommend her without reservation, hesitation or limitation.
“She helped us develop a timetable for the sale of our home. And when we fell a little behind, she was patient. She discussed pricing strategy. Her knowledge of the local market was impressive and thorough. Michelle recommended that we have our house staged so that potential buyers could see its value. All those suggestions made the house more marketable.
“Michelle was present for every showing. She discussed the hidden highlights of the property with prospective buyers. When offers were received, she discussed the terms of each offer and the potential buyers. Michelle helped us avoid problems with offers that seemed too good. She was always positive and described everything as progress even if it seemed like a bump in the road.
“After we accepted an offer, she provided us with a list of deadlines. Michelle also helped us meet some of them.
“The day before closing, she came by and did a personal last inspection. Finally, she also reminded us that while we were leaving, we were taking 20 years of memories with us.”

Relocating to another community
“Never have I had a Realtor place as much effort into selling a house as Michelle has. Professional photography, staging consultants and aerial photography were all used. All these tools were key components in getting people to view the property; it wasn’t long after the listing that we had multiple full price offers. I would like to mention that many Realtors want a quick sale – I had interviewed many realtors. One Realtor wanted to list my house for $25,000 less, looking for a quick sale. Never did Michelle ever push the timeline and stayed on course for our asking price. Even when one offer fell through, she relisted the house and kept on course for a full price sale of my house. I highly recommend Michelle’s services. You will not be disappointed. A better Realtor I don’t think you will find.”

Moving onto their retirement home
“We were so happy we chose Michelle to sell our home. We called her about six months ahead to discuss listing and updates we wanted to make. She guided us through the whole process and made suggestions to show our home in the best possible way. We had multiple offers at the first open house and closed in two months. We would recommend Michelle to anyone that is thinking of selling their home.” – Bob & Eileen Bersey, 0ne Foxwood Lane, $807,500, 4 Bedroom Colonial
