Michelle Fanto-Chan's Testimonials

Elisabeth Zimowski Working with Michelle to secure housing during our relocation to the Bay Area from North Carolina was an absolute pleasure. This is our fifth time doing a cross-country corporate relocation, working with both buying and selling agents, and Michelle is unquestionably among the best real estate professionals we have worked with. She made a stressful process smooth and enjoyable. She was endlessly patient with us as our targets changed day to day, and sometimes hour to hour as we got to know the area better. We gave her ridiculously large search parameters and unfazed, she asked thoughtful questions leading us to better insight into what we were looking for and helping us to narrow the search. In this tight housing market, she never hesitated to follow up on our behalf on any lead, no matter how small, which ultimately led to us being successful in securing our house - she researched the original purchasing agent and tracked him down on a hunch that he may be the new listing agent. When we decided to switch mid-search from buying a house to renting, Michelle graciously never missed a beat and provided us with the same level of service in assisting us in finding a rental that she had when we were looking to buy. Additionally she proved to be knowledgeable about a wide range of areas across the greater San Francisco Bay area, various price points and purchase models, and was proactive in doing research on our behalf on commute times, location to BART stations, highways, etc. She did all of this with very little notice on a tight timeline. We landed on the perfect property for our family and I would highly recommend Michelle for all of your house hunting needs.
Eungoo Chong I wanted to let people know how much we enjoyed working with our realtor, Michelle, throughout our dream home search. She gave a lot of attention to what our needs were and made us feel like we were her main customer above many. Because we were a first time buyer, to be honest, we were very nervous. We needed a realtor who could walk with us but not leading us. Michelle's down to earth mind and her patience truly helped us better understand on many things we were not familiar with regarding home purchasing. After months of joyable journey with Michelle, now we found our beautiful home for our family in a beautiful community. I just wanted to say "Thank you" again to Michelle!
