"I told Michelle, but I’ll tell anyone who will listen; this experience was night-and-day from my last, in every good way imaginable. I am thrilled to have landed exactly the home I had my heart set on, during an upsetting time in the market.
I admitted to Michelle that I love her. She is the best! I knew I was in good hands, from beginning to end."
"Thank you very much. We were in very good hands with Michelle. She is a good listener and worked with us to get the home we wanted in the neighborhood we needed. She worked patiently with us through a rigorous process, and she was always available to guide and provide support whenever we needed it. Our process was slower than usual, and Michelle encouraged us and gave us hope when chips were down. We had lots of setbacks during the process and Michelle was always available to help us pick up the pieces and strategize on the way forward. We truly appreciate Michelle for all she did for us especially given our prior bad experiences with other agents."
"Thank you for your email and yes, we found it. We must appreciate Michelle who untiringly showed us so many houses and was always a step ahead of us on the houses that we saw. Very punctual and always been there for us through the whole process. She has a great knowledge about the area and is available at any time of the day for any of our queries. Cheerful and so easygoing to work with. We are so grateful to you for giving us such a amazing realtor to work with."
- Santosh, Madhura and Irra
P.S. Our daughter, Irra considers Michelle her almost family now.
"We hit the jackpot with Michelle! She was so optimistic and always made herself available to our requests. This applies not only to the home search, but the offer presentation, follow-up, inspection, help with anything involving the home's needs. She went far above the call of duty to get us into a home I absolutely love and a neighborhood that oozes charm. Thank you for having Michelle on your team. What a gem and a warm and caring person, also."
"We just moved to the area and purchased a home in SW Portland through Michelle. We loved working with her and cannot recommend her enough. It's always challenging to find a good broker; we made three trips here in the past 18 months and worked with multiple agents. Michelle was head-and-shoulders above the rest. The house we bought with her help was our 4th offer but the first one we did with her. She has also been great in terms of connecting us to local services and businesses to get the home ready for move-in. If you want a high-quality, highly knowledgeable, and effective realtor, look no further than Michelle Spanu. We love her!"

"Michelle was able to calmly and skillfully work with us to sell our home in a short amount of time. Her knowledge of the Portland area and the market was invaluable during our home sale process. I especially appreciate her sense of humor during stressful times- it really helped us out."
- Courtney and Tim
"Michelle helped sell our home on Bull Mountain in Tigard. She is very knowledgeable about the area and made the selling process easier and more professional than we have ever had before. She communicated what she would be doing to sell our home and kept us informed through the entire process from market research to open house to closing. She has a great personality and is a pleasure to work with and turns out she is a great personal coach as well! We highly recommend Michelle and anyone who has the opportunity to work with her will not be disappointed."

"We are very happy with our new home, and Michelle… OMG, she is a rock star! Pro-active, smart, details oriented, always willing to help, and had a lot of patience with us. She is GREAT! I would definitely recommend her services 😊"
"The entire transaction went well. I can honestly say Michelle is the best realtor we've ever had. She was extremely thorough, easy to work with, and held our builder accountable to execute. We are extremely impressed!"
"We were both extremely happy with the support and guidance that Michelle gave us throughout the process. As first-time buyers, we had a lot of questions; and as relocations we were without any familiarity with the US system -and Michelle was always happy to assist us, even with the most 'obvious' enquiries. Michelle has been incredibly generous with both her time and her support, including scheduling home tours at the last minute, and giving up weekends to accompany us to fit round Daniel's work schedule. On a personal level, we were particularly grateful that she was able to help me with home tours when I was without a vehicle and provide us with knowledge about areas of the city that we were not so familiar with. In our initial conversations with Michelle, we outlined what we were looking for, and some of the requirements we had, and she has been great at making sure we stayed on course, even when frustration with the market might have tempted us to compromise more than we should! She was a wonderful support throughout the whole process, and checked in regularly as we moved towards closing, ensuring that we were on course: and not just with us, but with lenders and the seller's realtor as well. Michelle has been extremely professional, as well as warm and friendly, and Daniel and I are both delighted to have worked with such a fabulous and experienced realtor on our first home buying experience: we feel very sure we would not have succeeded without her!"

"Going a Step Beyond…That’s Why Rian and I like you…going a step beyond what you have to do including thinking about our baby girl, to calling Rian back at whatever time of the day..to even driving us around while we were making up our minds about the house. We truly appreciate all your hard work."

"You Were There When We Needed You…Thank you so much for all your help with finding our new home. Throughout our on-again-off-again search in a difficult sellers market, you were there when we needed you to provide quality choices and expert advice. You acted in a very professional manner throughout all phases of the purchasing process. You were able to make a sometimes trying experience easy and enjoyable. We especially appreciate your initiative as demonstrated with your personalized presentation of our offer to the sellers of the house we ultimately purchased. If not for your personal care and dedication, we would probably still be looking. We would highly recommend, and strongly encourage, the use if all your services to anyone looking for a home in the area. Thanks again for all your hard work and dedication."
