What do Clients Say?

#1: We had an OFFER after being on the market for 9 DAYS with Michele! Previously, had been on the market with another broker for about 6 months without any offers. Michele knew exactly where to set the asking price so that interest & offers would be generated immediately. #2: This first offer was a good one which was negotiated briefly & then accepted! Michele carefully guided the transaction on our historic home successfully to closing. #3. Michele is more than fair, very responsive to endless questions/concerns, & extremely professional & ethical. Although she has extensive experience & knowledge she is not burdened with a massive ego; she listened to & respected our perspective. She did many, many kind & helpful things for us during a very stressful time in our lives. We trust & admire her.

Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Hillsborough, NC.

first worked with Michele Burris in 2013 when I moved to the Chapel Hill area from out of state, and she helped me to locate and purchase my home. Since that time, she has also helped my mom to purchase a home for herself in the area, and has helped to me purchase a separate investment property (in Dec 2016). Besides guiding us through these 3 transactions, she has also provided a wealth of information regarding the area, real estate transactions, reliable/quality vendors for work to be done, and more. Not only does Michele possess extensive knowledge and experience in the triangle area and in real estate transactions, she is also highly resourceful and a genuinely kind person. I have referred her to friends and colleagues, and there is no question that I will work with her again on future investment property transactions.

Bought a Single Family home in 2016 in Carrboro, NC.

I really appreciate Michele's help for me to buy my first property in life. I am not a US citizen, but Michele makes it easy for me to understand the whole process. She is also very helpful in following-up even after I have purchased the house. Would recommend her to anyone who wants to buy a house in the Durham/Chapel Hill region.

Bought a home in 2015 in Hope Valley, Durham, NC.

We worked with Michele to sell our home in Chapel Hill this past winter. We have sold two previous homes, and we interviewed several real estate agents this time around before we met Michele. We were concerned about having to put our house on the market during a historically slow time of year (right before the holidays!) but our experience with Michele was superb. Her knowledge of the area and the real estate market in general is impressive and far surpassed what we'd heard from other agents. She is highly knowledgable about how to market properties in the modern era (online marketing, etc.) was also able to give us excellent suggestions in terms of the things we could do to stage our home. She is wonderful to work with--professional and personable and courteous. We had two offers on our home--at asking price and above asking price--after just a few days on the market. I could not recommend her highly enough.

Sold a home in 2014 in Chapel Hill, NC 27514.

After over 30 years buying and selling property in three different countries, Michele is by far the best realtor I've ever worked with. My wife and I have bought and sold with her twice now; attentive, efficient, pleasant and very honest. She knows the Triangle at all levels of the market, and will be a pillar of support throughout the process. Can't recommend her highly enough.
