Because it's more than just making a deal,
or making a sale.

I measure success not by numbers, but by pleasing my clients and giving them good reasons to look forward to working together again. Sometimes our relationship grows over the years; I’ve handled as many as five transactions for several clients. But don't just listen to me. Listen to them…

Alex and Liam

There are not enough words or thanks we can give you for traveling around the Lower Mainland for almost a year with us. Luckily, we have a lot of friends we can send your way in the next couple of years :-) Your advice and guidance has been invaluable and we are so excited to have stuck with it and FINALLY be starting this next chapter. Let us know when you're in Port Moody showing your next picky clients arounds!

Love,

Alex & Liam

This is our second time working with Michele and again the experience has been fantastic! She is extremely knowledgeable about the Vancouver market. She listened to our needs, stayed optimistic, and helped keep us grounded along the way.

Michele was accessible and answered our questions, keeping us updated and educated throughout the buying and selling process. She respected our need for space in making decisions and never pressured us. Instead, she gave us excellent, timely advice based on her many years of real estate wisdom. It was clear that she is well-respected by her colleagues. She even provided referrals to industry professionals who have been equally expert and great to work with.

Each time we spoke with Michele, we felt like we were her top priority, even though we knew she was very busy!

I doubt we would have met our real estate goals without the sound guidance, strong negotiation skills, and effort that Michele provided every step of the way. Thank you, Michele!
Paul and Helen

Michele helped us find out first home in Canada when we moved from England in 2003 and has now helped us sell that same house again 17 years later, during one of the trickiest periods in Canadian real estate (Covid 19). We’ve always found Michele to be super organised (detail oriented), a clear communicator, knowledgeable and professional, with an uncanny ability to read people. She showed endless enthusiasm (and patience) with our sale and was always there to guide us with each step of the process.


Thanks Michele!

Michele was recommended very highly by my sister-in-law. I was not disappointed. From our initial discussion through to a very speedy and successful listing and sale, Michele was very professional , extremely knowledgeable and very helpful. She developed a marketing plan for my property, and made several suggestions that would maximize my price and result in a speedy sale. Bottom line, my property sold in about 10 days after listing, and the proceeds were more than 10% over listing. Michele you were wonderful!!!

"Michele is one of the most informed and passionate Vancouverites I have had the pleasure of meeting. Her depth of knowledge and care for her clients own journey of discovery in terms of what Vancouver neighbourhoods can offer to their lifestyle is authentic, and of great value to all who purchase and sell with her. Her legacy of experience in this awesome real estate city is one to be respected and pursued."

"Congratulations on your 30 years in the business. You have seen both the highs and lows in the 30 years and your talent and passion have helped you be successful."

Moira Steven

"I returned to Vancouver after 17 years away and was anxious to find a new home.  A friend recommended Michele as the perfect person to help with my education in the Vancouver real estate market and to guide me to the right property.  Not only did Michele take the time to clarify my many misconceptions about what to expect here in the Lower Mainland, but she also helped me determine what I really wanted (and could afford).  It was a long process to find my new home, not due to Michele, I hasten to add, but she remained patient and helpful and the source of a lot of great suggestions.  I am now settled in my new home and I can only express my gratitude that she "stuck with me" throughout my search."

Tracey and Steve

"We hadn’t moved in almost 15 years, so when we got back into the real estate market last summer, we needed the help of a reliable, professional, responsive realtor. We found all that and more in Michele. She listened carefully to our needs and wants, then carefully culled appropriate listings for our consideration. She gave us her honest input on every listing - from its price to location to amenities and flaws - all of which helped us immensely to make the eventual decision to buy our gorgeous townhome near South Granville. Behind the scenes, she took care of everything, and when she was with us, we had her full attention. I should add that while she was helping us find a place and driving us around to inspect various properties, she was dealing with some family issues; despite those distractions, she was unwavering in her professionalism. If you’re looking for a realtor who’s resourceful, honest and fun to be with, we highly recommend Michele for your real estate needs."

Courtenay & Mike

"We had a great experience as first time home buyers with Michele. She is personable, quick to react and a perceptive Realtor who goes the extra mile to get the job done. We couldn't be happier in our new home and are thankful for Michele's help."

Jeff & Debbie

"30 years - Wow!

Congratulations on your long , successful career in real estate.  You have a gift to relate to people's needs and it is evident you love what you do."
Doug and Deborah

"We were extremely pleased with Michele Collins’ work for us as an agent. We listed with her because it was apparent that she knew the neighbourhood well and was able to assess the market, pricing and approach to be taken in making a sale. From beginning of listing through to the closing of the sale everything was andled in a professional and pleasant manner. We got a price that was very close to asking and sold within a short period of time. One couldn’t ask for more."

Rasha

"I have met Michele in an open house in 2005 and since then she has been our realtor and more. It was easy to recognize how different she is than any other realtor I 've met. She came along as a friend who is trying to help us buy our properties rather than a realtor making commission on a sale. She has helped us buy & sell our first house (duplex), also our current home (detached house) & 2 investment properties ( condos) – never once did I feel that she was rushing to close the sale or speed up with what seemed as a never ending search. Michele has always and in an exceptional way provided us with professional and yet very personal advise. I love every single property that Michele helped us buy! "

Jane Brindley and Ross Paul

We met Michele Collins at an open house in Kits Point in 1991 and immediately knew that she was the ideal real estate agent for us. Over the past 20 years, during which she helped us to purchase 3 properties and sell 2, she has more than confirmed our choice. Her knowledge, work ethic, integrity and honesty have served us very well and we have enthusiastically recommended her to friends and colleagues. Michele takes time to understand her clients, their goals in selling and their needs and hopes when purchasing. She matches her approach to that of her clients while still providing wise guidance and sound advice. She works tirelessly to ensure that clients find the right home. What’s extra special is that over time, Michele has become a very good friend to both of us. She’s delightful, a great mother to Noelle and Adam and a superb representative of Vancouver and her profession.

Dale Steeves and Lisa Dominato

"Michele was absolutely exceptional in finding us our perfect home. Her experience and knowledge of the real estate market in Greater Vancouver is second to none. She made our search process enjoyable and her professional counsel ensured we made the best decision in a challenging market. We will use Michele again and not hesitate to refer her to our friends and colleagues."

Brigid Barriscale

"I have bought and sold three homes with Michele over the past 10 years. I am continually impressed by her uncanny ability to target the right buyers, time open houses to pique the interests buyers, and to negotiate impressive sale or purchase prices. Just recently I saw her skills in action, when Michele was able to sell my townhouse within a few weeks where similar properties in my neighbourhood were staying on the market for months."

Ron and Janeen Wallwork

"Michele is the best real estate agent for whom anyone could ever ask. She is completely trustworthy, professional, knowledgeable, and always ready to help, even though we, as clients took forever to find a home: working with Michele for eight months! Michelle is very personable, flexible, in full support of her clients, and in every way strives to meet their real estate needs, even though (for us) that meant passing by any number of properties because they just didn't quite measure up to our hopes and changing needs. When appropriate, she gave us honest feedback that was extremely useful in the process of finding a new home. Moreover, Michele respected our opinions and tirelessly strove to help us find a place within our limitations. No one could have worked harder than Michele and thanks to her we now live happily in our new found home that is truly beyond our expectations."

Guy Malthus and Donna Wong Malthus

"In a tough property market it pays to work with an agent that goes the extra mile. We were most impressed with the effort Michele put into selling our apartment and she proved particularly invaluable during the sale negotiations and got us a result better than we expected. We have no hesitation in recommending Michelle should you be looking to sell your property."

Doug McMillian and Ken Cado

"We highly recommend Michele Collins as a realtor. She is highly professional, knowledgeable, and an understanding realtor. We used Michele to find our perfect home in Vancouver. She showed us a variety of homes that matched our criteria, but also some listings that increased our understanding of the market and what exactly was out there. Michelle was there right from the beginning until the very end. We purchased a new property and Michelle accompanied us through all the meetings that took place and 'punch lists' of work that had to be completed. We've already recommended Michelle to friends, and we feel there can be no higher recommendation than that."

Bev Dunne

"Michele did an outstanding job for me selling my condo and getting me into my dream house. She told me and showed me what was possible and she made it happen. She was very knowledgeable, organized and above all excellent at matching my needs and dreams to the right house and encouraging me to keep my goals in mind when I got discouraged or sidetracked. Michele was always prompt for meetings and returning calls and emails, and no time was inconvenient for her. She went above and beyond many times, and held my hand throughout the highs and lows of the process. She also took care of all the myriad of details to do with appraisal, inspection, providing information to lawyers, brokers, and banks."

G. Nash

"Michele took the time to get to know exactly what we were looking for in a house. She knew our tastes as well as we did, and didn't waste our time with properties that were unsuitable. Working with Michele, we knew that we would hear about new listings as soon as they became available. Working with someone as professional as Michele was invaluable while shopping for a house in today's hot market. We heard about new listings as soon as they were out, had all of our calls returned promptly, and knew that we were always receiving honest, unbiased advice. She made our first home buying experience a good one."

Barid Manna

"I just returned from the Earth Summit in Johannesburg. I got the good news. I wish to thank you all for assistance and successfully completing the sale of our condo in record time. The timing was perfect. I guess this is part of the "globalization² process of doing business - with you in Vancouver, Joya in Victoria and I being in East Timor. It's comforting to know that we have you as our Realtor whom we can trust and rely on - despite the geographic distance. We will surely contact you for any future needs. A job well-done! Thank you once again. Much appreciated."

Mrs. Manna

"In the final hectic days of transaction, I did not get to meet with you. But I do appreciate the amount of trouble you took to dispose of this condo in a clean and neat way. Thanks once again for being a super realtor.

Ann, Garth, and Ainsley

"Dear Michele, Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did finding us a great house. We couldn't have hoped for a better agent to help us in our long search. We will certainly be recommending you to anyone asking us about our experience. If we can ever be of assistance by providing a reference for your prospective clients, or if you ever need a testimonial from very satisfied clients, please let us know; we would be delighted to do so.
