Testimonials

Below are some of my Client Testimonials

By: Ron Percival

We have lived in our house for 35 years and feel that now is the time to sell,for the last 3 years Michelle has been sending me information on the state of the real estate situation in Pickering, and I have been ever so impressed with her business acumen. From the moment we met Michelle we were so impressed with her presentation as to how we should sell our house, she explained everything in language we understood and made the whole process so easy. When the house was listed she continually kept us in touch with us on an hourly basis, and when the offers came in she was on top of the situation, and kept us informed. Our sold in 10 hours and for $200,000 over asking. I would fully recommend Michelle for her enthusiasm to work for you, to get your house sold.

By: Joanne

This is our first time selling our home and we're really glad we had Michelle by our side. Even in the aftermath of covid-19, her years of experience and knowledge helped us navigate through the complicated process smoothly, and was always available when we need help, have questions or concerns.

By: Sherry From Pickering

I’m very happy with my experience with Michelle. She’s authentic, professional and straight forward with a side of compassion. She didn’t make promises she couldn’t keep and at the same time, the things we discussed came to fruition. She made suggestions to steer me in the right direction without being pushy. I would definitely give her a call if you need a realtor. The woman’s got it going on. Authenticity is a super power! Can’t ask for more than that!

Michelle Makos was our real estate agent and she sold our house in 3 weeks. Until I met Michelle our house was listed for 4 months and we didn’t even receive one offer. How’s that possible you’ll ask. Well, Michelle is exceptional at what she does. She is a true professional in her field of work. What did she do differently then most real estate agents do, you’ll ask. Let me explain. First and foremost she is an honest, confident, straight forward individual with attention to details who appraised our house right. Secondly, she is the only agent (that I know of) that was present when the photograph took pictures of the house. She directed him and oversaw the whole process and those pictures made a huge difference in the whole selling process. She personally listed our house and made sure that all highly reviewed sites have our listing. Every day she will rotate the pictures of house so that the ad doesn’t feel stale. Once we had an offer, Michelle was an excellent mediator between the other party’s agent and us and made a stressful situation look easy. I highly recommend Michelle. She trully impressed us with her approach in doing bussiness. Thank you again, Michelle! Mirela and Paul

By: Mike Edwards

can make. Michelle’s professional approach and knowledgable understanding of the real estate market made the sale of my house in Toronto stress free. Michelle was always available to discuss any questions or concerns I had no matter how silly they were, at the time they were important to me. I would definitely use Michelle Makos again and I would also recommend her to anyone looking for a Real Estate Agent. Thanks Michelle !

By: Anthony Branch

I just closed the sale of my house today with Michelle as my agent. She is a total professional who really knows the business. Her sense of humor kept me on the right track and she updated me on everything all the time which was greatly appreciated. She had my back the whole way through. I would recommend her 100% to anyone who wants a topnotch real estate agent to help with buying or selling a home.

By: Scott Dunstall

I think this sentence says it all. Michelle makes you feel like you're the only client she has. These are just a few of the things that makes me grateful we selected her to represent my mom's house. She's smart and reads the market well. She was very well prepared for our first meeting and hit it off with my mom right away, which was important for me. Her marketing casts a wide net on the most active platforms for residential real estate. Including TV and Social Media. She successfully navigated through a challenging path to selling the house. Two other copies of the same model went on the market, one before and the other just after we listed. Both were playing havoc with our strategy. Despite that, we got what we hoped for on price and just as important, the long closing we needed until my mom's new place was ready. Michelle was very understanding of the emotional turmoil we were all going through with this major change in mom's life and she made every accommodation to make it as painless as possible. It's been three weeks since we sold the house and she still responds right away and in patient detail. Thanks Michelle!

By: Brian Telford

Michelle goes above and beyond all expectations for the purchase and sale of your house, she is a true professional and you will not find a better realtor in all of Durham Region ( maybe all of Canada!) to handle your properties both buying and selling. Michelle will bring in an incredible photographer to capture your house to make the listing presentation wow all it's viewers. Michelle is honest, hardworking, extremely knowledgeable and someone we have the utmost trust in.

By: Amanda D

I have only positive things to say about Michelle. My husband and I are first time home buyers. With Michelle’s guidance, we had an extremely positive experience purchasing our home. My husband found Michelle online. Neither of us are from Pickering and we needed to find someone who really knows the area - Michelle provided a lot of insight. Prior to even meeting her, Michelle provided a wealth of information. The first time that we met Michelle, she managed to impress both my mother and my mother-in-law! She was not pushy, was the first person to point out a home’s flaws, and made you feel like it was all part of the process to see a number of homes. As she says, you have to visit a lot of frogs before you find a prince. Michelle brought us to see a home that we had ruled out based on something in the listing, and it ended up being the one that we chose. Perhaps the best thing about working with Michelle is how quickly she gets back to you and how available she makes herself to her clients. A previous review stated that she makes you feel like you are her only client - I completely agree with this assessment. She quickly responds to emails about listings, comparables, and was quite accommodating with showings as our availability was quite limited. Michelle represented our interests perfectly when it came down to putting an offer in on a house. Our offer was accepted despite being in a multiple offer situation, and we could not be happier. Thanks Michelle!!

By: Joanna & Bryan Patten

This was our first home buying experience . Michelle walked us through the entire process and was very fast to reply to our email and texts ( same day responses even within the hour)! She was very honest with each house we looked at and was not trying to push us into a home that wasn’t right for us . Michelle took us too every home we wanted to see and sent us multiple options as well . Eventually we found our first starter home and we could not be happier ! Thank you Michelle ! If you are looking for a real estate agent don’t hesitate, she is your girl ! She definitely knows the market and knows what she is doing when it comes to buying and selling real estate . She gets the job done !

Michelle is terrific at providing ongoing updates on everything and ensures we are kept in the loop with what is going on out there which was greatly appreciated. My wife and I feel like not only did we meet one of the best agents/brokers out there but also made a friend while doing so. I would strongly recommend Michelle to anyone and everyone who wants the best of the best in the real estate world........and I'm not kidding....she knows her stuff and will fight for you!!

By: Kyle Fehr

I had the pleasure of working with Michelle for both the sale of my old home and the purchase have of my new one. She worked tirelessly to get our house to market and provided timely feedback and strategic advice throughout the process. On the purchase side Michelle worked diligently to show us a wide range of houses that fit our particular interests. Her skillset helped opened doors we never thought possible. Michelle is a high energy realtor who is always available and is a tremendous asset in the search for, or the sale of a home.

By: Erin Baker

Michelle was very helpful and knowledgeable of the neighborhoods. She helped my husband and I find a home within our budget. As first time home buyers the process was a bit intimidating but Michelle made it manageable. She made us feel like her only clients and responded to our questions very promptly. I would highly recommend Michelle.

By: Steve Pawlett

I met Michelle through a friend who said she is the best agent I could possibly have. She was right! When I met Michelle I was immediately impressed with her energy and vast knowledge of the market. She left no stone unturned as she worked tirelessly to help me to find the perfect Condo. She is a strong negotiator and is always available to answer questions and offer advice. I was so impressed with her abilities that I had her list my home after having an unsuccessful experience with another agent. She said it would sell in within a couple weeks and it did, and I got the price I was looking for. Michelle is the type of person that always has your best interests at heart. She is a dedicated professional, with a great sense of humour. Michelle has the ability to turn the stressful task of selling or buying a home into a very happy, positive experience. Her knowledge of which areas are good and bad makes it easy to narrow down your search and not waste time. Michelle has that rare, natural ability to make things happen. If you want to find the perfect home for you, call Michelle Makos!

I work in real estate development and management. On a personal basis I sought a local (Pickering/Durham) realtor for a related-party home resale. and fortunately I came across Michelle. I've worked with numerous realtors in Canada and the U.S. on both home resales and commercial real estate. I found Michelle as professional and attentive as any I have encountered in my 20 years in the business. Moreover, I have to say she is at the very top in my experience with realtors in trustworthiness and in client-first focus (over business-first). If you or anyone you know requires a realtor for a home resale or a purchase-shop, I highly recommend Michelle. (And a word of warning -- fasten your seat belt, and be prepared to work hard to keep up. She's a rocket.)

By: David and Maria Timothy

Hello.. We just purchased our beautiful home and I just wanted to share with everyone about the fantastic person with whom we had the pleasure working for us as our agent. Her name is Michelle Makos, ive know Michelle now over 7 years and although I wasn’t in the market at the time to purchase, she helped me with some rental property that I was interested in at time and I never forgot what a professional person she was to work with. So now that we were in the market to purchase Michelle was our natural choice for our agent and because of her professionalism and her persistence and dictation we would like to thank her for making our dreams come true with the purchase of our beautiful home. Thank you Michelle

By: Kim Duffney

When I decided to sell my home I went online looking for a realtor. I had plans of meeting with at least 3 before settling on the right one. By chance Michelle was the first realtor I met with and after she came to my home to discuss my needs, I was the one who was sold. I didn't need to meet any other realtors, I knew Michelle was the right one for me. She is passionate about her business and compassionate with her clients. Michelle is dedicated and always available. If I saw a house I wanted to see, I was there to view it the same day. There was always room in Michelle's schedule. Michelle was not just interested in quickly selling my home and turning me into a new one. She took the time to make sure I got the best deal for my home and even more time to make sure I was able to find a home that was in my budget and preferred neighbourhood. Once that house came to market , she made sure I got it. Buying and selling a home can very stressful, but having the right realtor can certainly ease that burden and I definitely had the right realtor. Michelle genuinely has the best interests of her clients at heart. She is a benchmark for realtors everywhere. My kids and I are about to move into what is the perfect home for us and I could not have done it without Michelle.

By: John Jones

Had an awesome experience with Michelle. I had a tight amount of time to find a place in a crazy competitive market and Michelle was able to get it done. Very responsive to messages and fast to get offers in. Very knowledgeable about the area I was looking in. Thanks again for everything.

By: Gleen Martin

We recently purchased our home with Michelle. With the COVID-19 market, we didn't have much hope in purchasing a new home as we originally planned but Michelle helped us every step of the way. She was honest, straight to the point and responsive to questions we had throughout the process. We especially appreciated her knowledge of the area we were interested in and her various contacts. If you are looking for a realtor that knows the Pickering area, values honesty, easy to work with, and has a vast experience in real estate, I would highly suggest at the very least booking a consultation with Michelle. She will not disappoint.

By: Brian Henchey

Michelle was wonderful wonderful wonderful. Found her through ratings and she lived up in every sense, beating out other agents that I had engaged. Mostly, Michelle was super responsive. Went from deciding to sell on a Tuesday, meeting, signing agreement same day. Pictures / video on Thursday. Listing on the Friday. Showings on weekend and sold on the next Tuesday. Every step we were in sync and in touch. Very thoughtful and proactive. Well done.

By: J. Porter

Michelle was Fantastic! She was professional, always available and had the media connections to get my house noticed without any open house. This was very important to us during COVID restrictions. I really enjoyed working with her, she made a stressful time very easy by looking after everything to do with the sale. Great energy!!!

By: Trevor Sykes

Michelle is an amazing agent/broker. In a sea of less than ethical people in the business. Michelle is a refreshing change. She helped sell my home and got ~40% over asking. Thus was further made difficult by the fact I happened to be working in another province and due to COVID could not travel back, so everything was done remotely. The proof is in the results. The house was shown for only 3 days, and we go more than asking. The first thing we loved about Michelle Makos was her energy and lack of pressure. She made suggestions without being forceful, and truthfully we just let her drive the whole thing. She suggested not staging just decluttering, and a short viewing window. So for the family back at the home, it was only 3 days of disruption. Once we were ready to sell, Michelle had virtual tour done, professional photos and even drone video. Michelle used her incredible reach and contacts to market the home very quickly. Between Facebook, Insta, Twitter as her site. From the time we had house ready to the sale was 5 days max. Michelle is also a well regarded veteran in the industry, not only did she help us evaluate buyers offers, she also helped us evaluate buyer agents. Who was playing games and who was really interested. She is the consummate professional. She also has a deep understanding of where the market is at intuitively. Her awareness of the pickering area was second to none. My wife and I value responsiveness a lot in the professionals we deal with. pretty much any email or text was answered within 10 minutes, regardless of time of day. And it was not courtesy answers, she gave us well researched opinions and gave us sources if we wished to dig deeper. The biggest thing for me and my family though, was the low stress, laid back manner. We sold our biggest asset but it felt as easy as buying a loaf of bread. Everything was fluid, I always felt comfortable and never was ill at ease in the process. we met with a few agents before we decided. Looking back, we NEVER would have got the price we got, with a stress free process, and a mega quick turn around. The house had over 60 viewers in three days. there was only 3 days where the family had to alter their schedule. It sold for 400k over any comparable on the street. There was no agent that could compare looking back at the ones we interviewed. She also made the process incredibly fun. My mom is selling her place soon, my son is buying soon. Both I am sending to Michelle. It's so hard to find people to trust, but in real estate I now have an easy go to choice. Our family wishes your business the best Michelle!

By: Stacey Davidson

Selling/buying a home is one of the most stressful experiences you can go through. As an anxious person, I wasn't looking forward to the process. I am SO happy I found Michelle. Super professional and one of the most responsive people I have ever worked with in any capacity. She is no nonsense and it's clear she's passionate about her job, her industry and really knows her stuff. I definitely felt she had my family's best interests in mind. Never was she sales-y or pushy with us - can't recommend her enough!

Her level of pure professionalism and knowledge in real estate is absolutely number one anywhere . She is simply the best there is and truly cares about her clients . She makes the process seamless, easy and is always there for you ! ?? Thank you Michelle for all you do .

By: Kalpesh Patel

I found Michelle while researching on internet for to sale my house. I called couple of Agents to come and give me free home evaluation. They came and tried their best to sign me up instead of focusing on what I want :). Michelle was the only one who didn't try to force me. So when I was ready to sale my house , I called her and after couple of her visits, I signed an agreement. She sold my house in a week and sold it for more than asking price. She had plans for everything and every situation. True professional, always available and keep you posted for every little details. We are glad we found her :) Thanks a lot Michelle for everything you did to sale our house....

By: Eduardo Barragan

Michelle, Your service was beyond what I could have expected. Upon the first home I saw with my parents you clearly stated that was "not" the home for them. You are very honest and a great person overall. You kept showing them homes until we got lucky and found a great one. They called, you picked up the phone and responded all questions properly. You certainly have our business onwards.
