My husband and I retained Michelle Hanna’s professional services to represent us, both as the buyer’s agent for the purchase of our present home and the seller’s agent for the sale of our former home. Having had the opportunity to work with Michelle on both sides of the transaction over the course of several months, I would recommend her very highly, and without reservation, to any client considering her representation in a real estate transaction.

During the lengthy, and often frustration, process of looking for a larger Hancock Park/Windsor Square home that incorporated as many items form our family wish list as possible, Michelle demonstrated a keen awareness and understanding of and sensitivity to our parameters and preferences. Michelle skillfully met our objective of minimizing house-hunting time and maximizing our limited search time by thoroughly screening properties and recommending viewing only those that she was fully confident were in line with our taste as well as our budget. As a result of Michelle’s astute knowledge of the area market and her strong relationships with fellow agents in the area, we were always on top of the market in terms of newly listed properties, desirability of specific properties and sales trends int he area. Her input, observations, suggestions and advice were invaluable and she was terrific facilitator from beginning to end. Michelle’s determination, strong negotiating skills, real estate expertise and business savvy and unwavering commitment helped us finalize a purchase transaction. Her combined abilities enabled us–in this extremely “hot” market–to achieve a significant post-inspection price reduction and ultimately purchase a home at roughly 10% below recent area sales.
During the process of listing our smaller, Larchmont Village bungalow for sale, Michelle confidently, and very knowledgeably, guided us through the process of determining a listing price that would generate market interest and result in a prompt sale. Michelle presented and executed a well-developed, extremely creative marketing plan to make our home stand out from other listings. Additionally, she demonstrated extreme flexibility to agents and prospective buyers in arranging showings, successfully generated above-average attendance of prospective buyers at open houses, and used her initiative and a great deal of her time to disseminate selling information to the broadest target audience possible. As a direct result of Michelle’s hands-on involvement, her unconditional desire and commitment to achieve the best sales price possible, her completely unexpected, but greatly appreciated position of selecting from multiple offers with three weeks of putting our home on the market and ultimately selling our home for more than the list price.

Michelle Hanna is, in my opinion, a precious, very valuable find in the real estate world. She is incredibly bright, caring, considerate, dedicated, honest, fair, kind, personable, possesses an incredible amount of integrity, and is very thoughtful. Michelle Hanna would be an invaluable asset to anyone contemplating a real estate transaction. Without question, Michelle possesses the ability to skillfully handle real estate transactions in varying price brackets and bring them to a successful close. I highly recommend retaining Michelle Hanna’s services as your agent!
