Sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $775K in Gaithersburg, MD.

Michelle Yu is highly efficient and effective in selling my property.  She had it done in about a month from listing even when it's "slow season."  Her reputation in the area attracted almost thirty families to my first open house and ended up with multiple offers in the first week.  Her excellent  negotiation skills resulted in a final price that is close to full price.  She has a team that works diligently to take care of any issues prior to settlement.

Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $525K in Gaithersburg, MD.

Keith help me and my family find a home that had only been on the market for 5 hours.  He treated the process like he was buying the home himself.  He was instrumental in making sure we won the home with multiple offers.  And he stayed involved through the mortgage process, inspection, closing  right up to moving into our new home.  His level of detail is superb, taking care of details before you can ask or even think of them.  We had to have a tree removed from the property and Keith driver by the property before I could ask if it was done to make sure it was done properly and in a timely fashion.  But Keith doesn't stop there - he ensures that you are settled - bringing us our first meal while the movers were unloading the truck.   If you want this type of service and level of detail - choose Keith.  You will not be disappointed in this choice!

Sold a Townhouse home in 2016 in Clarksburg, MD.

My wife and I had an excellent experience working with Andrew to list and sell our home.  He helped us navigate the entire process from before listing all the way through to settlement.  He was always very responsive to my phone calls and text messages and usually got back to me within a few hours,  day or night.  The staging consultant he connected us with was instrumental in helping us get our house "show ready", and I think really played a part in getting our house under contract within the first 10 days on the market at list price.  Andrew was very thorough in each step of the process, especially in reviewing our contract offers with us.  He helped us navigate all issues that came up during the building inspection, including a radon issue.  He was able to recommend a terrific contractor and radon system installer to quickly resolve our issues at reasonable prices and keep our contract moving on schedule to settlement.  
           
Andrew was an excellent communicator, and always kept us up to date with the latest status of the contract, the buyer's loan approval, etc.  
           
My wife and I would highly recommend Andrew if you are in need of real estate services, especially to list and sell a home.

Andrew came highly recommended by two separate friends of ours and we were very happy to have him on our side. Andrew did a great job representing us during the sale of our house! He always came prepared and on time. He would always provide important data while we considered each decision along the  way: setting the price, negotiating, going through home inspection etc. We moved cross country and Andrew was very helpful with tasks small and large to ensure a good showing or just to maintain the property in a good condition. We cannot recommend Andrew enough for anyone looking for a solid professional to work with!

Sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $1.15M in Potomac, MD.

Michelle is an excellent agent, as is her team manager Andrew Tzamaras. I was very pleased with Michelle's professionalism and command of the entire process of listing, marketing, negotiating and addressing unanticipated post settlement issues. Michelle clearly understands the Potomac market and  the sales process.  We achieved our price and terms targets. With her input, we effectively timed the listing, and optimally set the price of the home;  A couple of experiences stand out as noteworthy:  1) She is well networked in the real estate community, 2)she provided excellent photography and staging services.  And when we had a misunderstanding related to payment for staging services, Michelle, without hesitation, assumed responsibility for the misunderstanding and agreed to pay for the staging services; 3) during post settlement, we encountered a rare, but extraordinarily disruptive experience related to misrepresentations and a lack of performance from our moving company. This moving company introduced difficulties into an otherwise flawless and positive set of interactions between the buyers and the sellers.  Michelle and Andrew remained engaged with me throughout the post settlement process to address these issues.  Andrew took the lead to assist me in preparing necessary documentation and provided objective and sound guidance. Collectively, these examples listed, and other experiences working with Michelle, convinced me that I had made an excellent choice selecting her as my agent

“I can’t say enough to describe how easy (and fun!) it was to work with Byron. He was very knowledgeable and patient. Being first time home buyers, my wife and I were almost completely clueless when it came to the ins and outs of the home buying process. Byron did an excellent job explaining each  step in the process and making sure that all of our questions were answered. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Byron to our closest family and friends, and should the time come for us to purchase another home, he will be the first person we'll call as we can’t imagine working with anyone else. Thank-you for helping us find our first home!”

Bought and sold a Condo home in 2016 for approximately $175K in Boyds, MD.

I would like to take this opportunity to commend Michelle Yu and Remax Town Center and in particular the efforts of Byron Martinez in the sale of our home and securing our new home. Selling our home after 40 years and downsizing to a condominium was an emotional time for us and Byron handled it  with patience, professionalism, and a desire to help us secure the future we wanted.

After initially meeting with Michelle and charting the course Byron helped advise and guide us through the next few months. We chose to sell at a difficult time of year and Byron held multiple open houses to showcase the property. He let us know along the way how things were going, promptly giving us feedback on how the open houses went. He was patient and assured us along the way all would be well and it was. Our home was sold and we moved on to the phase, our new home.

Our ideal location was a condo in the neighborhood where two of our daughters lived. After the first condo did not work out he soon found another in the same building. He was always looking, staying in touch with other realtors and staying in touch with us. Now the condo we wanted in the neighborhood we wanted is ours and we can’t thank Byron enough.

We would highly recommend Michelle and the Remax team and Byron Martinez to anyone searching for a satisfying experience in selling or buying a home.

We loved Michelle Yu and her team! We chose her to be our realtor because she already had an excellent reputation in our North Potomac neighborhood. Our trust in her experience was well founded, as our home was under contract in just four days for the full asking price! When we decided to place our  39-year-old home on the market, we anticipated a long project. We knew that much work had to be done and that we would need a great deal of guidance to prepare our home for sale. For Michelle Yu and Andrew Tzamaras, her team manager, no question was too trivial, no amount of assistance and advice was too great. When we couldn't meet contractors at the house, Andrew or Michelle or another team member met them for us. Michelle and Andrew were responsive and available to us every step of the way. Their entire team-- from their administrator to their stager to their photographer-- functioned like a well-oiled machine with every piece falling smoothly into place. Throughout the process Michelle, Andrew, and their administrator Megan made suggestions and helped us plan for what had to be done next. Their expertise resulted in a rapid sale and a smooth and drama-free closing at the end. We would highly recommend the Michelle Yu team to anyone!

Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2016 in North Potomac, MD.

Michelle Yu is a first class realtor.  From the time my husband and I first met her we were so impressed by how she came across. Her dedication and concern for the buyer was so sincere and meaningful.  Her expertise four our neighborhood and pricing was right on the money. 
We were most fortunate  that after  we had our first open house within days after we got  contract and have already gone to settlement  In-between the part of being under contract to settlement Michelle made sure that everything that needed to be taken care of so that the bank could ratify the contract was done immediately.
We highly recommend Michelle when it comes to selling your home  too.

Michelle was a great agent on the sale of our home.  We interviewed other agents prior to selecting Michelle.  We were immediately comfortable with her and her presentation of what she would do for the sale of our house.  She showed a distinct knowledge of the house market around our home.  We held  three open houses, and she is the one who suggested the additional open houses (we had heard of other agents only willing to hold 1 or 2 open houses).  She was very responsive on our communications with her and always providing prompt responses.  Michelle kept us informed of what was happening on our home, offers received, sales conditions, etc. and she was able to provide her vast sales experience to help us sell our home.  We would hire her again without any doubt.  We have already recommended her to friends and neighbors.

Michelle is everything a homeowner seller could wish for. Her professionalism, expertise, and dedication throughout the process impressed us. We selected Michelle after interviewing a number of agents. Her understanding of the local market and her experience really make her stand out. In  selling our townhouse, Michelle went far and beyond the normal line of duty.  To do so, she created a very grand brochure and helped stage our townhouse. When we received 5 offers for our townhouse in one day and called Michelle about it, that very night (after business hours), we met Michelle in her office. We left with selecting the best offer. We are extremely satisfied with Michelle’s service, and highly recommend her.

She also gave us all the good referrals to work with after the house inspection. Most of all, she  was very good at communicating with us so we never felt neglected by her as the customer. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to sell their house.

Michelle Yu has superb knowledge about the local housing market and her team always gets back immediately on requests or questions.  She has been well-known in the nearby communities in the last decade or so.  We were drawn to use her listing service after we saw a house down the street was sold  within a week while our house was almost ready to go on the market after a few winter months of remodeling and updating. She provided informative comparables to help determine the listing price and pointed out the right attractive features for the property plus using a staging service to best present the house to potential buyers.  Her familiarity with the process is impressive and quickly brought the contract to finalization after the property received multiple offers within a few days. I highly recommend Michelle if you have a need to sale or purchase a house in the neighborhoods, for the right price and satisfaction of service.

Michelle is very familiar with the local houses, and has had many years of experience selling/buying homes for the clients. I started working with her from Sep-Nov, and soon she went for vacation, but sent one of her teammates (Chloe) to work with me until I got my new house. During the time she  was absent, she kept sending emails, and reading materials related to the house, and giving us useful suggestions. She has a strong team that backed her up in the last several weeks while she was away, which made the entire purchase process fairly smooth. I was able to find Michelle even she was then in Taiwan. This made me feel very comfortable.
I believe Michelle and her team -
1) Are very professional. They have their dress code. That made me feel they really cared about me
2) Know much about Potomac/Rockville areas. Michelle could remember some houses she helped to sell around the house I bought, and told me what she thought about houses. We went to several houses. She always gave me her opinions, and never let me feel she was pushing to buy
3) While Michelle always kept talking/emailing to me, her teammate, Chloe, was also very responsive. Usually most emails I sent to her got response within a short time. For those questions going to the seller, I was able to get answers the second day. I was very happy with this. After the closing, I also had some questions, and got her answer quickly and clearly
4) During the time we inspected the house, Chloe was able to think for use, trying to figure out something that we could negotiate on. This saved us some money
5) From the time I started using their service, to the time of closing, the team was showing great confidence and patience dealing with different situations     
We are so happy to be able to work with Michelle's team and got our new house in a short time with a price we like. Thank you, Michelle!

My husband and I chose Michelle Yu to handle the sale of our Rockville Maryland home. At the time we already signed up to purchase a new home. We were depending on the proceed from the Rockville home. Michelle from the very first meeting put us on ease. She is not only a very experienced real  estate professional but also a very genuine person. I felt that she really cared about us. She understood that the home need to be sold on time and profit that we are expecting. She planned everything meticulously by providing professional help how to cleanup, spruce up and make the home presentable. She has a team of professional  people including interior designer, photographer who came to our house and helped us. She recommended great service people to get things done in the house. She did extensive research before recommending what the price of the house should be. Our house was sold in 3 days for 16K above our asking price. We had several offers to choose from. She negotiated with the buyer so that we can stay two months after the sale of the house. This made our move to the new house very smooth. I recommend Michell Yu to anyone who is thinking about selling or buying a property. We were extremely satisfied with her professionalism and felt privileged to know her as a person.

Michelle impressed me through this listing and selling process with 3 attributes, if not more.
           
1.  Whole heartedly dedicated in her clients.  Michelle works late, quite often I received her emails around almost midnights.  She replies emails, texts or phone calls in a timely fashion.  Timely  communicating with her client made me feel that I was up to speed all the time.
           
2. Expert in home selling.  From the very beginning to the very end, Michelle has demonstrated the in depth knowledges in local markets, home decor, and understanding of buying/selling psychologies, which helps this deal largely in the soft real estate market today.
           
3. Preventing potential issues and problem solving skills.  Becoming good in this areas requires both experience in the field and great skills working with people.  I have seen Michelle detected and avoided hid and submerged rocks and successfully sailed through.  There are always problems, it takes a leader who has the guts, skills, sometimes making compromise and even sacrifices to order to achieve the big picture.  Michelle did that.  I am sure that was not the first one.

Sold a home in 2015 in Grove Place, VI.

We just finished settlement yesterday for our first home sale and I was just amazed on what a great job Michelle and her team did. She is probably one of the few realtors we know that is really working for you and not just for the commission. With years of knowledge of our neighborhood, Michelle  helped us price our home just right, so we were only on the market for a single day before we were under contract. Michelle took the initiative and negotiated with the buyer and we got a offer over our listed price. Michelle was always quick to respond to any of our inquires and keep us updated on the status of our home sale.  We've dealt with other realtors before and she had by far been the best we've dealt with. We're on the hunt for our next home and there is no doubt, Michelle will be our realtor for this deal as well. Thank you so much Michelle for the painless selling experience!

Michelle is the best!!! She listed and sold our house and there are no words to express how thankful and grateful we are for everything she did on our behalf. I always knew that she is a great agent but what I didn't know was her personal side. Her warm, caring personality, her tireless efforts,  her willingness to put the needs of others ahead of hers, are only some of the wonderful qualities that we observed. Anyone lucky enough to hire her, will not only be impressed with her knowledge and expertise, but also her dedication and quick response to every situation.

We interviewed more than one realtor, but as soon as we met Michelle and felt her energy, we knew we would be using her services.  We initially met with her on Friday, she gave us a ton of information and no-pressure.  We called her back on Sunday, our house was on the market by Thursday, first and  only open house was that Sunday (with Michelle running the open house),  and under contract the next day.   Michelle and her team were awesome!    We received red-carpet treatment all the way, including professional photographer, writer and stager.

Please allow this letter of reference and recommendation for Michelle Yu and her RE/MAX team.
           
By way of background, we sought Michelle to list and sell our home. A number of things drove us to have her list our home, chiefly among them was an overwhelming presence of listings in our submarket,  specifically, Travilah. It was very clear to us after our first meeting that she was very knowledgeable about our area.
           
Michelle started the process by assessing our home and making very constructive and positive suggestions about pricing and things that needed to be completed in order for it to 'show well.' Shortly after our first meeting, she arranged for her 'secret weapon' to stage our home - using our furniture!! What a difference!!! Above and beyond that, she seamlessly had her contractor available for fix-ups and if needed, a moving van/facility for the 'big day.'
           
Other agents simply told us what 'they wanted' in order to present the house, but Michelle asked us what we needed to make it presentable. A very different approach that, we believe, is the cornerstone to her success.
           
Her marketing efforts and outreach are second to none. We were impressed on how well integrated and comprehensive her efforts were.
           
By example, she advertised our home in several points of interest for foreign buyers - with unbelievable responses and interest.
           
From those and other traditional marketing efforts, never once did she, or anyone on her team, ever pressure us to do 'something' from curiosity seekers or non-serious buyers. She navigated every response from direct mailings, newspaper advertisements, open houses and showings with efficiency and professionalism.
           
She and her team, start to finish, sold our home in less than 45 days - with an offer that we were pleased with.
           
We HIGHLY recommend Michelle and her qualified team to anyone looking to sell their home. You will find her to be honest, pragmatic, frank, professional and nimble - all enviable and hallmark traits of success in residential real estate.
           
Wishing Michelle and her team ongoing success.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.05M in Rockville, MD.

I tried to sell my house in Potomac with another listing agent in March of 2014. Zero contract offers. I hired Michelle as the new listing agent late in the year. She dropped the list price by only $5,000, put it on the market in the middle of a cold, snowy winter in February 2015 and had a  ratified contract within two weeks. It was a strong sellers' market in both years. What made the difference? Two things. Michelle's sixth sense about what week to list the home for sale, and her walking me through the necessity of really staging the house to the hilt. Two buyers agents told my teenage stager after she was done they could not believe it was the same house they had seen a year ago. Half the beauty of my property is the outside with a large pool and extensive hardscaping. Michelle's genius was to understand there were only four other homes in this price range when she first listed it, and that overshadowed the negative of the foot of snow all over the grounds. Michelle sold my home for the highest price ever received in the Fox Hills West section of Potomac Commons. Enough said.... go hire Michelle today!

When I sold my house, I needed to move quickly but also get a fair price.  She knew the market, the area, and put my needs first and matched my criteria to make it all happen in a very fast-paced and stressful time.  Michelle did a good job on my deal, was fair and honest, and I would do business  with her again.  If it were possible, I wish I could somehow take her wherever my business endeavors take me!  I highly recommend her and thank her for all her help.

Michelle Yu did a great job helping us prepare our house to go on the market and taking us through the whole process of selling it. We interviewed more than five agents. After she walked through our home, we had a very pleasant conversation. She provided useful suggestions about our home and we  hired her on the spot.
           
Michelle is professional, enthusiastic, energetic and very person oriented. She and her team gave us pointers on how to make the best impression without spending a lot of money.  She is a hard worker and very good at what she does. No matter what we asked (or when), she always had an answer.  She really knows the area and helped us present our house's best features for buyers.
           
Michelle is very good at negotiating. She worked with the contractor to get the best price for the work done to improve the house.  She also convinced the buyer to pay us one month’s mortgage to compensate us for a delay in the sale.  Michelle really looked out for us during the sales process.  We were very pleased with the results.
           
Her team is first rate.  Byron, her team member, was very patient in helping us look for another place.  He was always pleasant and personable.  She is very careful to select the best people (contractors, interior designers, photographers, etc.) to work with.  We highly recommend her to anyone wishing to sell their house.

Michelle helped my parents sell their home in Potomac.  Even though my parents were her clients, Michelle always kept me in the loop for the entire process.  We were impressed by her professionalism and responsiveness.  Her entire staff is wonderful--from her manager, stager/designer, movers, admin  staff, etc.,  Hiring Michelle meant a whole team working with us to get the house ready and sold.   There were times when we needed more hand-holding than normal, and she was there for us.  I know she has a lot of clients other than us (since I see her name on lots of for sale signs in Potomac!), but as I've told her several times, I've always felt like we were her only clients.  She is detailed oriented, organized, and on the ball.  Her prompt attention to all of our dilemmas, questions, and anxieties was greatly appreciated.  I know when I'm ready to sell my house down the road I will be looking for Michelle!

If there was an annual published list of “Top Realtors” in the DC Metro area like there is in local magazines for “Top Doctors”, Michelle Yu would be on that list year in and year out. The Top Doctors lists are about quality of patient care.  Michelle is by far the best agent I have ever had in 35 years living in this area based on a total of eight real estate transactions and agents.   

People typically take great care in choosing their doctors. My experience tells me they should be at least as careful in choosing a realtor in buying or selling a home. Great doctors won’t lecture a patient.  They will ask pertinent questions and listen. Michelle is unique in my experience in the degree to which she listens carefully to her clients. I first tried to sell my house in March/April of 2014. The first time Michelle came out to my house in the fall of 2014, she asked a simple question right off the bat: “What are the one or two biggest concerns potential buyers in March had with your home, inside the house and around the property?” 

Most every realtor in our neighborhood and way beyond wanted to list my house, both in the spring and again in the fall of 2014. No one else asked me that question in the fall. Michelle went on to think about the best ways to address those issues. Questions first, diagnosis second and prescription third.

Michelle is open, honest, and insightful in sharing every aspect of the sales process. Most realtors are like “old school” doctors who tend to treat the patient as not needing to know much about anything. Michelle kept me calm and confident; she earned and kept my trust. She did not try to win the listing by offering a high listing price she knew she could never get.

What she did do, however, was get the highest sales price ever in the recorded history of my neighborhood in Potomac. She got me the ratified contract price I wanted to the penny in less than two weeks after first putting the home on the market. She managed the rest of the process with extraordinary negotiation skills. Without her I would have been tearing my hair out. If you want to go with the best rather than high pressure realtors full of gimmicks, go with Michelle Yu. There is simply no better way to go.

Michelle Yu is the real estate agent to tap if you want your home buying to go smoothly.  She is very professional, adept at negotiating, very savvy about the real estate market and delivers what she promises.  In our case, we fell in love with a house in Gaithersburg on Thursday, put in an offer on Saturday and had the deal wrapped Monday, thanks to superb work from Michelle.  In addition, we had excellent representation from Byron Martinez, a real estate agent who assisted Michelle in her efforts.  Byron is very sincere, honest and hard-working.  Through his efforts, we were able to find a tenant for our North Potomac home within a week.  Both kept us updated throughout the process and also were instrumental in providing good references for lenders, termite inspection services, etc.  We would highly recommend working with both of them.

Michelle Yu is among the finest agents in Montgomery County, Maryland. Year after year, I witnessed houses listed with Michelle selling (quickly) in my North Potomac neighborhood. It seemed as though she had "the magic touch" that made sales easy for homeowners. When it came time to sell my own home, I knew immediately that I would use Michelle Yu as my agent. Michelle helped us with pricing, setting up for minor renovations and repairs, and hooked us up with a fantastic stager. Michelle worked with me to create a schedule to prepare the house in an expeditious manner, and we were able to get the property on the market within a couple of weeks. Before the listing went into the MLS system, Michelle already had lined up two potential buyers. Two days after our open house, the house was sold for $2,000.00 above asking price. This was during the off-season when it is sometimes difficult to sell.


Michelle Yu is professional, experienced, honest and caring. I recommend her wholeheartedly to both sellers and buyers.

We are so fortunate to have YOU AS OUR REALTOR, as YOU made it possible to have our home close 38 days from the day the contract was written, and a contract written 4 days once our home was on MLS listing. We have bought and sold 4 homes before in our life time so far, but this home was very special to us for the 10 years we lived there. You made everything go so smoothly from listing to closing ! We praise you for your excellent profesionality and expertise in solving all the problems that came on the way. We appreciate all the flexibility and patience you had during the late evening calls to accommodate our busy schedules. You have heard this before from us : Michelle, YOU ARE THE BEST!  GOD BLESS YOU !!!

In all our years of buying and selling real estate, we have never experience the dedication that both of you put forth on our behalf.

Dear Michelle,

We can’t thank you enough for helping us to move into our dream home. From the very beginning, it was clear to us that you were concerned with helping us to find the right home rather than just making a quick sale. As soon as we were ready to place our home on the market, you moved with amazing speed to hold the first open house within a week.

You worked with us to make a difficult process as easy and enjoyable as possible by listening to our suggestions and concerns and promptly acting on them. We believe that your tireless motivation and commitment to your clients are the reason our house sold during a difficult market in one month. While we respect your integrity and professionalism, we are moved by your care and concern for your clients, neighbors and friends.

We were just beginning to consider the possibility of moving and wanted to explore what was affordable nearby. So we stopped by a nearby open house on a whim. Upon entering the house, we were instantly impressed with the presentation of the home and the realtor, Michelle. A few weeks passed and we went to a few more open houses including another one of Michelle's.  Despite our brief conversation weeks earlier, she remembered us. And like the previous open house of Michelle's that we attended, the house showed very well. Michelle's houses were consistently among the best presented that we saw.
A couple days after visiting the second open house, we contacted Michelle to visit our home, evaluate it, and discuss what we would be looking for if we decided to sell our home. We were very impressed with her knowledge of the local market and her enthusiasm for helping us find a new home.  It was obvious to both of us that she genuinely cared about helping us find an ideal situation for our family that satisfied our must-haves and avoided our deal-breakers.
During the next two months, a hot market required us to stay in constant contact with Michelle as listings would show up and go under contract within the course of a couple days. Michelle was always available by phone or email, day or night, and made us feel like her only clients (even though we knew that we weren't). We must have looked at more than 20 houses with her, not including the open houses we went to by ourselves on the weekends. After all that hard work, frustration, and disappointment, when we finally found "the house," Michelle helped us prepare the successful offer that was selected in a multiple offer situation!
When our focus shifted to selling our townhouse, Michelle and her team offered helpful suggestions for decluttering and staging. Our house went on the market Thursday morning and more than twenty groups toured it in advance of the open house on Sunday. The buyer feedback was very positive and the open house was well attended. Thanks to the efforts of Michelle and her team, we were now on the deciding end of multiple offers above list price! The value of Michelle's advice cannot be overstated as she helped us to navigate the difficult negotiation process with a prospective first-time buyer all the way through successful completion of the deal.
Our relationship as buyer and seller with Michelle lasted for nearly six months and now that it is complete, it feels a bit odd not to be in constant communication with someone that we now consider a friend. We highly recommend Michelle and her team!

Laurie and I wanted to thank you for doing a wonderful job selling our house. It wasn’t just the amount of time it went under contract (3 days) that was impressive. It’s quite obvious that you look at what you do as a career, not just a job. The level of professionalism, effort and knowledge you exhibited while working with us was very impressive. From our first meeting when you took the time to explain in great detail the entire sales process from listing through closing helped us understand all the issues and factors that could impact not just the final sales price but also getting to the “finish line” in the most efficient and effective way possible.

As you know since we were out of the country for two weeks prior to settlement it was initially quite nerve wracking for us.  Your follow-through and level of commitment put us at ease and we greatly appreciated you going above and beyond in order to ensure when we returned everything was taken care of which led to a smooth closing. Thanks again for all your support and hard work and we wish you continued success.

Sold! Such a beautiful little sign hanging in front of our house, especially in the tough real estate days of 2011.

We owe it all to our fabulous agent Michelle Yu, her partner Joyce, and her entire power team at RE/MAX Park Potomac at Town Center.
We had a great property to sell at a good price in a tough location. Michelle made it happen. This was our third house in twenty five years. We have seen market cycles but nothing like this year. Michelle gave it her all every step of the way. Her advice was spot on. Our absolute trust in Michelle was repaid time and time again. Everything that could be done and then some every she did. Her entire team, and especially Joyce at closing, were brilliant.
We know 1st hand why Michelle is a top 1% agent in the DC area and the country. We could not be happier. Michelle and her entire team have our unqualified recommendation.

Michelle and Joyce, we will never forget you and what all your effort meant to our entire family.

"Before we approached Michelle Yu, we anxiously watched our house sit on the market for almost three months and even reduced the price aggressively, but still did not get an offer.
As soon as we called Michelle and explained our awkward situation, her pleasant, positive attitude and honesty really gave us more hope and support than any words could describe. She was a godsend!

Michelle's efficiency was astonishing, and in one week she had transformed our house and attracted several potential buyers, resulting in a sale in just one month thanks to her market knowledge, connections and professionalism. We will tell all our friends about your service and highly recommend you when they plan to sell their homes in the future. Thank you again."

I would not hesitate to engage her again in the future."

“The first time I met Michelle was at an open house when, at the time, my fiancee and I were looking for a house... I was so impressed with her enthusiasm, positive energy, interpersonal skills and in-depth knowledge of the market that I decided whenever I wanted to sell my condo, she would be the person selling it. Since then, I had the pleasure of conducting three transactions with Michelle... In all of my transactions with her, Michelle has always had my best interests in mind. She is the consummate sales professional.”

Dear Michelle,

You are the best capable agent I have come across. With your integrity, honesty, experience, expertise and communication talent and skills, combined with your exceptional personality and fine education & training, it is no wonder that you’re in the top 1% of the best selling agents in America with the RE/MAX Park Potomac at Town Center.

I thank you so much for helping me to downsize my cherished home for over 24 years... I would not hesitate to hire you again for the sale of my homes. Thank you.

She is not only knowledgeable, but also extraordinarily efficient and organized. She always put her customer’s interest first.”
