Client Comments

Dear Mr. Podley, You are very lucky to have Michele as an agent representing your company. She was a joy to work with and I would refer her to my friends. She has a great attitude and truly cares about her clients. Moreover, her commitment to the community is outstanding!

Gil & Kayleen

She is smart, efficient and paid attention to all necessary details. She gave great advice and practical suggestions. Mostly she was “there” for me even when she was out of town. I would recommend her!


I believe that Michele’s organizational gifts, staging experience, real estate background and aesthetic sensibilities come together in such a way that she has an uncanny ability to imagine how a space can – with simplicity – reveal its most attractive self. I am so grateful for Michele’s expertise! I will surely work with her again.


We love our new duplex and are really enjoying the picnic tables you had delivered. Sitting out in the sunshine with my doggies and best friend/neighbor. Happy New Year and thank you for all of your hard work in making our dreams come true!

Karen & Laura

I based my decision on selecting Michele Giffin to represent selling my home based on her impressive marketing proposal. She was warm and friendly, knowledgeable about her market area and really took over to make this an easy transaction. Michele did a great job. I recommend her to my friends.


Dear Michele,

I send congratulations to you on the successful event last weekend, and say that I hope you are proud for what was accomplished. There was a large crowd at the Treasure Little Children Fashion Show expressing all sorts of excitement and fun at the event. I am pleased to have been asked to offer a word of support to the supporters of TLC.

Keep up the good work, and I look forward to seeing you soon.
