WINDERMERE REALTY TRUST
After landing in the Alphabet District more than 20 years ago, Michele became enthralled with the culture and vibe of Portland. Being a part of the community, building relationships and having a passion for the Portland lifestyle paired well with Michele’s love for real estate and the area itself.
We first met Michele when we were exploring downsizing to a condo in the Pearl (vs building on acreage in the country). Due to her extensive knowledge of The Pearl housing market and her personal familiarity with living in The Pearl, we decided The Pearl "lifestyle" was for us. Michele got to know us, our desires and our eagerness to live in The Pearl. She facilitated finding us the "perfect" living situation, the ideal floorplan in the best location. Michele did more than sell us a home, she helped us realize our "dream lifestyle". Thanks to Michele, every day is like we're on vacation on our own home.
We have loved working with you. You made our transactions painless.

We have had the pleasure of working with Michele Bell on both the buy-side and sell-side of the real estate experience. Initially, she sold our home and simultaneously assisted buying a new one. During both sides of the transaction, she was and excellent negotiator – dynamic but diplomatic. She prevented the ruffled feathers and emotions that can rear up when buyer and seller are trying to reach a common ground; she is a master. Michele is a consummate professional. Besides her stoic and steady demeanor, she is incredibly knowledgeable about construction quality, current market conditions, pricing and financing. And she is accessible; always available for questions and concerns and completely responsive to situations. Her integrity is unquestioned. She is market savvy. She knows what it takes to make a home look its most appealing and the photography she used to show off our home when selling was spectacular. She knows what buyers want and she knows what sellers need to tell them. But the most gratifying part or our home experience has been for Michele to become a true friend. Proof that she is a true relationship builder and trusted ally, not just another sales person.

Michele represented me on my purchase of a condominium in The Vista in the north Pearl which closed late in 2018. It was a pre-construction purchase so the entire transaction took almost two years. Through every step, Michele's expertise of the neighborhood, the process and the market were of the highest quality and unmatched. She assisted in helping me find the most desirable unit with the most potential. She was responsive and attentive and made a lengthy process run very smooth. I will definitely use Michele again.

I met Michele Bell when I was looking for a unit in the Cosmopolitan. I was a first-time buyer, thus a true rookie who needed a lot of help! She was not only warm and friendly, but very knowledgeable about the building, the neighborhood and the market. She didn't try to up-sell me in any way; instead she was transparent and truly had my best interests in mind. It was December so the holidays were approaching, but Michele was available 24/7. Thanks to her professionalism, work ethic and sincere desire to help me, I was able to close within a couple of weeks - on New Year's Eve! Michele then went on to sell the unit I had been living in, also in the Cosmopolitan. I didn't own that unit, but she was equally as impressive on the sell side. She was able to transform it from a home that was highly customized to showcase various works of art, to a carefully staged, clean, minimalist look that she knew would attract buyers. The combination of Michele's sense of style, expertise and the hard work she put into preparing the unit to list paid off. Michele sold it in just over a month! Whether you are looking to buy or sell, I highly recommend Michele Bell! She will always go the extra mile!

Michele finds out specifically what you're looking for and not just what she wants to sell. She take's the time to do a thorough search of the properties before hand and is willing to work around your schedule. She also understands the emotion involved in what is normally the biggest purchase of your life. She goes above and beyond and I have been lucky to work with her.
Michele is the best! She’s so far worked on a purchase and a sale, and in both cases I have nothing but the outmost respect for her. She is so passionate and very dedicated. I will use her again in the future and have been referring her to friend.
