From the beginning, we were very impressed with Michelle. We were planning a move across the country and wanted information about the housing market in the areas we were considering. Michelle was knowledgeable, patient, and willing to help us in any way she could, even before we were her clients. After opting to move, we became clients of Michelle. She helped us navigate a very intense and competitive housing market with ease. She knew the areas we were interested in, was IMMEDIATELY available to view properties and answer questions, and kept our best interests at heart throughout the process. Most importantly, she came to know our wants, needs, and desires and advised us on how to best approach properties we were interested in. My wife and I would not hesitate at all to recommend Michelle. She was a wonderful ally to have during this potentially stressful, yet still rewarding, experience. Joel and Janna

I wanted to take a moment to personally thank you for your tireless efforts and your many prayers in helping me find my house. You are a beautiful person and a wonderful friend and I am so completely blessed by your presence in my life. I would not have done this without you and your continued support. God handpicked you for me and I am grateful. I can't wait to celebrate with you when we closed on my house. Blessings! Jamie

Michelle Nelson sold our home quickly and for top dollar. She used every tool at her disposal and was very creative thinking of new marketing ideas. She worked tirelessly to sell our home and to help us find our new home, which we love! She even devoted a day to help us make decorating decisions. We love you Michelle! Robert and Gwen

Michelle was the first agent to contact me and make me fill confident, comfortable and was very knowledgeable and professional. She got my property on the market at it sold in three days. She answered every question and email promptly even when she was taking a day off. I have high expectations and can be demanding and Michelle definitely exceed my expectations. Overall I had a great, easy and professional experience selling my property. Shawn

Personal Background

I moved to Colorado in 1978 from Michigan. I love what Colorado offered our family, from skiing, hiking, to exploring Colorado in our family's motor home. Growing up in Lakewood with my siblings, my parents owned several rental properties that were always needing updating. I think that was the started my interest in real estate. My parents instilled in me the importance of family.
