I selected Michele as my listing agent since she had an aggressive stance on pricing and for marketing. She also provided staging furniture and charged a point less commission than the other agent I was considering. Michele was able to keep a steady stream of potential buyers coming to look at the house even though it was on the market in the rainiest Nov & Dec on record, and the house ended up in escrow less than 60 days after going on the market. The escrow went of without a hitch leaving me a satisfied customer.
We have bought and sold many properties, and found Michele to be the most professional and knowledgeable agent with which we've ever worked. She responded to phone messages and/or emails almost immediately, regardless of the time of day or day of the week. She provided excellent feedback after showings, and sold our house quickly and for full asking price despite a couple of drawbacks to the location. We will recommend Michele to anyone we know who is looking to buy or sell in Portland and surrounding areas!

In the dog eat dog world of the Portland housing market , Michele was steady as a rock providing us with great service. She is very knowledgeable about the market, quick to respond to any concerns and fast as possible with all the documents. She was great to have at home viewings as she was able to point out items I may have missed. She was able to get a sense of what my family was looking for and helped tailor our search as to not waste time. She was patient with us and not pushy in anyway and now we have a great house, in a great neighborhood without breaking our budget!
I was a first time home buyer and worked with Michele. There's a lot that goes into the process, but Michele was always on top of answering any questions. She was there to help with my inspection and re-inspection. She has been in the industry for awhile, and has seen it all! She knows the market really well and was great to work with!!!

Michele walked me through the seamless purchase of my first home in '08. This year we doubled our challenge, coordinating the purchase of a new home with the sale of my residence. It was not easy with the number of properties available and how quickly buyers and sellers must navigate the current market.
Fortunately, I had a pro by my side. She kept me informed, guided me through, and not only was I able to sell my home on my terms, but the house I bought was everything I had imagined and more...for the right price!!
Michele's knowledge and experience are evident at every turn. She remains calm in the face of challenges and is a step ahead of any problem that might arise. I feel so lucky to have had her walk me through this life-changing transaction. I always felt I had someone looking out for my best interests. She knows the business, the area, legalities, and most of all she knows people. I could not have had a better business partner and expert broker on my team. Thanks, Michele!
I recently had the privilege of working with Michelle Parker on my last home purchase. She was professional, knowledgeable and showed great market savvy. I appreciated how she was always of top of everything. She would show up to every part of the process; the doc signing, appraisal and inspection, leaving no errors to chance. I found the process to be very smooth with Michelle and she always answered calls/texts immediately so I was always briefed every step of the way. She also went out of her way with a lot of the little things that could become big issues down the road. Which I appreciated very much.
I will be using her again on my next home purchase for sure. She is a delight to work with as well.
Anyone looking for a realtor that gets the job done.... Michelle is the best choice. She knows this crazy market like the back of her hand, and knows how to write offers that stick the first time. This was important to me as I knew I was up against 5 other offers and really wanted this house. Thank you Michelle, You're the best. If if weren't for you and your years of experience, I wouldn't be typing this recommendation from my dining room table looking out over lovely backyard right now. So thank you so much Michelle.
Michele was our agent when we bought our first home, so when the time came to sell, we knew we wanted her in our corner, and she did not disappoint! She was so knowledgeable, responsive, and always on top of whatever the next step was. We were so pleased with our outcome and Michele's hard work made the process so smooth. It was so nice having someone we could trust at every step!
I would highly recommend Michele for either the purchase or sale of your home! She has been our agent for both a purchase and sale. She always responds to phone calls/texts, she makes it clear that YOU are the client, and she always knows the answers to your questions. She found us our first home, which turned out to be a great investment. On the sale of our home - she photographed, advertised, leveraged the deal properly. She generated a lot of interest in the home and we had multiple cash offers within 24 hours. We won't use anyone but Michele for our real estate needs.
Michele was an amazing partner in my home buying process. Her approach is smart and efficient. She builds confidence in her clients and will always provide an honest opinion. I looked to her for advice many times and she provided key details to help guide me in my decision making.
I happy and in a home I love.
Michele's real estate acumen is unparalleled and an embodiment of her experience in the industry. She has helped with multiple real estate transactions and has been nothing less than a trusted adviser. There are numerous competent brokers and agents out there, but it's Michele's knowledge base, demeanor, and her connections in real estate, construction, and finance that set her apart from the rest.
If you need someone to go the extra mile, Michele is for you! Michele has your best interest at heart, and whether you are buying or selling, Michele gets it done. She intuitively understands her clients and will stay in contact from selection to best choices right down to when it will all happen. Michele is a real go getter, is very professional, and does it all with a big, big heart!

Over the years I have purchased over 15 properties for both business and personal use, each time I look to Michele Parker for guidance to get the deal done. Michele brings a professional attitude and always has my best interest in mind. I would highly recommend Miss Parker for any and all of your Real Estate needs
We met Michele 10 years ago. She helped us find our home in Hillsboro we bought that home without any issues. We were just relocated to California and she helped us sell that same house.
Michele is great we can't thank Michele enough for all she has done for us.
We have found an amazing friend as well.

I started working with Michelle when I purchased my first home in 2012. She was so wonderful to work with that I contacted her again when I needed to find a bigger home and sell my current property. Michelle is professional and extremely knowledgeable. The home buying/selling process can be stressful but I knew Michelle would take care of all the fine details for me and guide me every step along the way. Every time something new came up or I had any questions, Michelle took the time to explain everything to me and let me know what was needed to move forward.
I highly recommend Michelle to all my friends and family looking for a reliable agent they can trust.
My wife and I have sold and bought homes always using Michele. Michele does everything for you and with great detail for a quick result. We put in an offer on our house and next day was finalized. We can't thank Michele enough for getting us our home we love! We refer all our friends and family to Michele.

Michele helped us buy both of our homes in the last 4 years. We moved to Oregon in 2011 and were ready for our first family home. Within less than a month, we had made an offer on our perfect first house and closed on it. It was amazing. The process was seamless and Michele made everything easy on us.
When we were ready to upgrade and grow into a newer home, we knew to call Michele. Once again Michele jumped right in and helped us find our dream home. We originally lost the bid on our house, but after a little time and the help of Michele, we were able to re-bid and won the sale of the home we are in today. I just know this is where we will stay as we raise our family.
Michele's professionalism, combined with her level of expertise and knowledge with real estate made us incredibly comfortable working with her both times. She was always quick to respond, went above and beyond to find out information to help us and gave honest and smart advise on our buying decisions.
I even recommended her to my father who also used her to purchase his house in early 2013.
We have also remained friends after the house closing!
If I had to do it again, I have no doubt I'd be calling Michele.
Michele provided outstanding professional service for us on five house transactions. She has the ability and desire to get real estate sales done right, and has always done whatever it takes to make us delighted clients. We have greatly benefitted from her work as our agent and have recommended her to many friends. She will be a force in the Portland real estate market for many years to come.
I want to shout out Sue Erland and Michele Montoya one more time. If any of you are looking for realtors that will aggressively go after the home of your dreams, these are your ladies. Nate and I ran into several hurdles on this journey and these two kicked some serious ass for us. Reminds me of that SNL skit with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler- "Bitches get shit done." #whoruntheworld #GIRLS
