What our clients are saying  

John and Michele are all around fabulous to work with. Patience, professionalism, the works. I don't believe we could have found better agents. We are pleased in every aspect of the sale and closing. We would recommend friends and family to John and Michele and would/will come back to them for any future sales and/or buying.


~ Dimitri & Jennifer

Very organized and knowledgeable about real estate, also very personable and easy going. Thanks for the great service. Highly recommended!


~ Marcus & Jess

John & Michele made my real estate transaction enjoyable. Always answered all of my questions and gave me all the facts I needed to make a good decision. They truly had my best interest in mind. I would highly recommend them to everyone I know.


~ Jodie

John and Michele Anselmo are phenomenal at real estate. I was immediately comfortable working with them. We had many questions and concerns and John and Michele always answered them, there was no such thing as a silly question to them. Through the entire process of selling our home and buying a new one, I was worried about their livelihood; completely convinced that I was the only one they were working with at the time.


~ Mathew and Kari

I later found out that they had multiple clients at the time and I had nothing to worry about, but that is the way John and Michele make you feel, like you are the only one they are working with and you are the most important. It was extremely comforting to us to have their knowledge and experience on our side when looking for, and purchasing a home. I would (and have) referred them to my friends and family and will hire them again should we ever need to sell this home and buy a new one.


~ Mathew and Kari (Continued...

Michele worked with me on my first home, and walked me through the steps needed for purchase. Many times I wanted to look at different homes and she would go with me, but understood the market much better than I did and gave me advice based on that knowledge. I am glad I took the advice. I now have a home that even though the market declined, I have my head above water. I may not have had that if it weren't for Michele. She is extremely knowledgeable about what it out there and the time to buy.


~ Mike Tuller

John & Michelle made selling our home effortless. The attention to detail and the effort they put into it was by far above anyone we had worked with in the past. Their creativity to bring activity to the home and make walking through our house feel special for our potential buyers was just the beginning of what they did for us. I would highly recommend them to anyone and would definitely use them again.


~ Michael & Tracy Behr
