Here is what some of Michelle’s clients have to say:
“What to say about about Michelle Vancil? She makes great cookies! – Nope, that’s not right, I have no idea what her cookies are like – I do however know that she is the best Realtor we have ever met! My husband and I were moving from Canada to the U.S. and Michelle was there to help.
I would characterize Michelle as someone who genuinely cares about your needs and she is definitely someone that goes the “extra mile”. Michelle took the time to show us around the different areas in Boulder, told us about the city, the schools, and about the vibrant culture that is Boulder. For her, its more than just getting us into a house – its about finding the right home.
Even 6 months later, Michelle has been there for whatever question we may have had. Michelle is more than a Realtor, she is an investment! ”
– Tracy and Chris (Erie, CO) —– P.S. I can’t wait to try her cookies!
“Michelle made selling my condo easy. She helped make a potentially stressful situation as relaxed as possible. From the showings to the signing at the closing, she kindly guided me step-by-step on how to best do things. She also helped me price the condo at a great price without it sitting on the market long at all.
I’m very thankful to have Michelle who looks out for my best interest when it comes to buying and selling real estate.
When the time arises again for me to buy and sell, I will gladly use her services again and I highly recommend her to anyone!”
– Bart Abriol (Boulder, CO)
“Moving across the country is very scary! We had a long wish list of things we hoped for in our Colorado home. We bought the second house that Michelle showed us – it had just about every item on our list. We had less than a week in Colorado and Michelle walked us through the entire process of purchasing a home from the inspection through the closing. She was always available to answer our (many) questions and never made us feel we were bothering her. Michelle made a difficult process (almost) fun! Hope we have made a friend in Colorado.
Our daughter will be looking for a home in the next year and we know we can trust Michelle to help her too.”
– Maryanne and Dick (Henderson, CO)
“Michelle was amazingly patient and helpful during our lengthy search to find a single family house in Boulder. She is always available, and if we drove her crazy with our constant questions and requests to see properties, she never let it show.
Her expert advice on offers and negotiations was always spot on. We would especially recommend her to first-time homebuyers who need or want extra guidance during the closing process. She’s extremely dedicated to her clients!”
– Erica and Daniel Stellar (Boulder, CO)
“We can’t thank you enough for getting our 2 acre lot sold. We really appreciate how easy it was to communicate with you and how professional and personable you were through the process. Keeping us always informed and answering all of our questions was greatly appreciated.”
– James and Mickki Soole (Erie, CO)
“Thank you so much with your help on this journey. We are so excited to be in our first home! Thanks for being so wonderful at what you do!”
– Kathy and Joseph Ulibarri (Broomfield, CO)
“Michelle put in the extra work to help us find the house we wanted, in the neighborhood we wanted, before it hit the market. She helped us negotiate the price and gave us all the information and advice we needed to make sure we were making the right decision. We will definitely look to work with Michelle again in the future!”
– Morgan and Gavin McMillan (Boulder, CO)
“You were very thorough when providing information on each property. I love your organization and your knowledge of each of the areas we looked at. The best part was that you made the entire process so easy for us and being that we were buying from out of state, that was extremely important.
We’ll be sure to recommend your services to all friends and family that plan to move here. Thanks so much, Michelle!”
– Robin, Mike and Maeby Aleo (Louisville, CO)
“Michelle recently helped us sell our first house. We relied on her extensive knowledge of the real estate market throughout the entire process. Michelle listed the house on Thursday, and by Sunday, we had three offers all above list price. From the moment we met Michelle to the moment we signed the closing papers, she always had our best interests in mind. We would highly recommend Michelle to anyone that is looking for a real estate agent, and we are looking forward to continuing to work with her as we build our new house!”
– Trevor Soole and Kacy Griffin (Broomfield, CO)
“Michelle is an expert at the south boulder market. Every week she shared a new tidbit – from new homes going on the market, to larger trends in pricing, to rumors about Google coming in to town, and more. She did a great job adapting to the style of home we were looking for – in this case a fixer upper on a great lot – and letting us know what may be coming on the market that we might like.
Michelle worked hard with us – she showed us 25+ homes, and we made offers on three before finally getting the house we wanted on the fourth offer. She was always patient in answering our questions, and sharing her expertise.
My wife Jen and I would recommend Michelle for any south boulder families looking to buy.”
– Jennifer and Ben Wright (Boulder, CO)
“We enjoyed working with Michelle as our Realtor. She went the extra mile throughout the process and made us feel confident that our best interests were always in mind. She was thorough and professional every step of the way. We love our house and neighborhood and can’t thank her enough for helping us achieve our dream of a Victorian charmer in Newlands.
We had to sell our condo to buy the house and Michelle got the condo under contract in 3 days! We couldn’t believe it. We will definitely recommend Michelle and look forward to working with her again.”
– Kristin and Orion Creamer (Boulder, CO)
“I hired Michelle to help me purchase my first home. Michelle was wonderful to work with. She was very knowlegeable about the home buying process. She provided me with a lot of information and was patient with me as I made the biggest purchase so far in my life. I have lived in my house for three years and I couldn’t be happier. I would highly recommend Michelle.”
– Abby Skerl (Boulder, CO)
“Michelle definitely does her homework. She was prepared with a lot of information on each particular house we went to see as well as the neighborhoods and surrounding areas. As a first time homebuyer, I didn’t know much about buying a house. I was very impressed by how much Michelle prepared and educated me for every step of the entire process!
Michelle is extremely organized. As soon as I was under contract she prepared a schedule of important dates and deadlines that really took the pressure off me as a first time homebuyer. Michelle was always was very quick to answer my questions or research the answers and get back to me.
– Stephen Flannery (Denver, CO)
“Choosing Michelle as my real estate agent was one of the best decisions I have ever made. She went above and beyond what I expected from a realtor such as making personal pickups from the airport and my hotel. I could not be happier with the house I selected and the price she was able to negotiate for me.”
– Dennis Wu (Aurora, CO)
“Chris and I are soooo happy – thanks to you!! We can’t thank you enough for all your hard work, sage advice, patience and support! Thanks again.”
– Erin and Chris Cancro (Denver, CO)
It’s hard to put into words our experience with you over the past three years. We describe you this way to our friends:
If you are looking for someone who is an in your face bulldog, Michelle is not the realtor for you. However, if you want someone that is honest, knowledgeable, and plays everything straight, Michelle is definitely your realtor. If you want to feel like the decision is yours to make and not a decision made by your realtor just to close a deal, then Michelle is definitely your realtor.
The house hunt
We looked for a home over a three year span of time and in a half a dozen different areas/towns. We were basically all over the map. Our biggest appreciation for Michelle is her on-going patience with us. We are first-time home buyers so the whole process was new to us. Michelle explained the entire process to us and she also kept us within our budget. I think we would have bought a few homes that were in the higher end of our budget or maybe homes that wouldn’t fit our long-term goals, Michelle really helped us sort through our needs versus our wants. This is key for first-time homebuyers. We never felt that Michelle had anyone but our own interest at heart.
Did I mention that we viewed these homes with our three children under teh age of two in tow? Michelle was unbelievably kind to our children (who will now miss her dearly). Our son shows his stuffed animals through our home pretending to be Michelle!
We thought Michelle shined through the house hunting process, but when it came to purchasing our home and preparing for closing, she sailed above our expectations. Again, we were first-time home buyers so we were completely foreign to the process. Michelle made this process a breeze. We never felt alone and she answered all calls-even on SUndays–sorry about that Michelle! She never made us feel annoying or petty about anything-truth be told we were both of those things!
The lack of pressure to buy was a highlight for us. If you like it great, if not then we move on! We felt bad when we would be in the market to buy then say we were not in the market to buy-Michelle never cared. She would spring into action when we wanted to look and sit on the sideline when we weren’t ready. We think this is rare!
We were all set for closing when our bank got behind with paperwork. Michelle stepped in and even over a weekend, she was in constant contact with our bank to make this deal go through. She called them every hour on the hour! We never would’ve closed had she not made it happen. She was firm but extremely professional. The best part-she did this because she truly wanted us to get the house.
How do you know when your realtor is the best? When you are sitting in a room with the seller’s realtor and they are trying to bully the situation yet your realtor is calm, calculated, and professional. Michelle has a gift at realizing what makes people in this industry respond and take action. She was a complete team player with everyone involved (and kept us calm) and, in the end, these qualities closed the deal. We felt completely covered with Michelle on our side. We also received compliments from our mortgage company and the couple selling our home on our realtors pleasant demeanor and knowledge on all things realty!
When closing your house, your realtor’s actions are a direct reflection on you and if you want someone that represents a strong business presence with a solid knowledge base, then Michelle is definitely the perfect fit. We never wondered whether what she was saying was the exact fact. If she didn’t know (rarely the case) she would look into it and not just give an answer. We respect this about Michelle.
We wanted to pass along our endless gratitude for Michelle as a person and a realtor. We couldn’t have asked for a better realtor to help us through this process. Thanks for taking care of us, Michelle. We will miss house hunting with you!
– Brittnie and Matt (Erie. CO)
“Thanks for making this whole complex process of buying a home easy and transparent for us. Looking forward to seeing you soon.”
– Darsh Mehta and Christina Gowdwin (Longmont, CO)
“Thank you so much for helping make my lifelong dream come true! The “Blue Window” cabin and studio is exactly what I was looking for. You helped make the process of purchasing the property understandeable and painless! I can’t wait for you to come up and see the wildflowers which are abundant, varied, and ever-changing. When I am up in the clean, cool air, I feel like I have come home.”
– Wendy Rochman (Rollinsville, CO)
“We want to thank you for making us feel so welcome here in Boulder! The open house you had for us when we moved into our new home turned out so well.”
– Leslie and Andy Gleason (Boulder, CO)
