Born and raised in Lafayette, California, Michele McKay has this kind of in-depth knowledge of the town and delights in sharing her insider expertise with her clients.

Michele McKay helped my family with a difficult long-distance sale after a family member passed away. The house was old and somewhat neglected. We needed someone to take control of cleaning up the house and property. We knew we needed to put some effort into making the house presentable but did not want to spend more than was necessary. Michele made recommendations and then researched the various cost options. The information was then relayed so that we could make informed decisions. Michele then managed the on-site work for us. She wasn’t pushy and never proceeded with any work that we had not considered and approved. The house sold quickly. In fact, before being placed on the market and before we had even completed the minimum work we had thought necessary. Michele truly worked in our best interest.

I just want to thank Michele McKay for a job well-done selling my Mom's house in Lafayette. Michele was very professional and always available when we needed her help. My mom's house was an unusual sale, as there were no responsible family members in the area, so my wife and I had to tackle the job long distance. Michele had tremendous resources to help us get through this, and we relied on her to be our eyes and ears on this project. When it was all said and done, the house sold prior to going on the MLS - for more than the asking price, the closing was a piece of cake and we received full compensation for the house within 10 days. Michele did way more than we expected. Without her help, we would not have sold the house as quickly as we did. Thank you again for doing a fantastic job.

If you're thinking about buying or selling, I highly recommend Michele. I have known Michele for many years, from junior high school days and through our years together as Architects. When I decided to sell my home in Sacramento, Michele referred a local Realtor® to me. She then tirelessly showed me homes that fit my needs, helped me negotiate a great deal, and arranged all necessary tests and reports. The whole experience was so painless that my sister decided to list her home with Michele and they worked together to find her a new home near me. Michele is a dedicated professional who delivers from beginning to end. Her architectural background and artistic eye are a great added bonus.
