SOLD for $608,000 – 1524 E King Ct, Gilbert, AZ 85234
This was a client I had worked with multiple times. His home was beautiful and in a great location. The nearest comparables in the area were $500,000. We listed it at $550,000 with the hopes of getting another $50,000 above the recent sales. We sold it in 7 Days for $608,000 using negotiation techniques that were very strategic. We were able to get the appraisal using our Value Packet and unique approach.
SOLD for $950,000 – 11440 N 69th St, Scottsdale, AZ 85254
The nearest comparables on this was landed in the $750,000 range. The area was highly desired and the home was immaculate and had all the pieces one could want.
I was on vacation in Mexico just after Christmas and the phone range. I took the call and it was a gal from California who was describing the home she wanted in very specific terms. It had to have a guest house, horse area, be within 15 minutes of Mayo Hospital, and be comfortable and have a pool. She was describing this home. We had not listed it yet so, I went back to the sellers and told them about the call. We solidified the listing and the California buyer bought this home at $950,000. $200,000 over the nearest comparable for the area. I used our Value Packet to get it to appraise.
SOLD for $625,000 – 17844 E Starflower Dr, Queen Creek, AZ 85142
When the sellers interviewed us to sell this home, they had interviewed multiple REALTORS. One told them 485,000 to $500,000. This REALTOR was a horse property specialist in the area for over 25 years. The next REALTOR told her he had a cash buyer at $500,000. He brought back another REALTOR that said he would buy it for $500,000. This seemed to be some sort of weird tactic to get the listing. The others came in between 475,000 and $500,000. When I looked at this property, I told the sellers I thought we could get them between $600,000 and $625,000. This was pre Covid and the market had not heated up yet. We sold it in 64 Days at full price of $625,000 through a REALTOR I knew in Scottsdale who I sent the listing to. We got them $125,000 over comparables in the area. I got the home to appraise with my Value Packet & unique approach.
SOLD for $850,000 – 21027 S 194TH ST, Queen Creek, AZ 85142
The seller interviewed me several years before we sold this home. He has interviewed several Realtors. The comps for this area were between $650,000 -$700,000. One this one, even I thought it was over priced and wasn’t sure we would get any bites. We had no showings for a week and then one showing. The buyers Realtor kept saying it was priced too high and it would never appraise and I said, “We’ll see.”
Emma worked for a solid week on the value packet and when the appraisal came back the buyers were upset because it appraised at $850,000! The buyers did move forward with the sale. We sold it in 15 Days at full price of $850,000. We got them $200,000 over comparables in the area. I got the home to appraise with my Value Packet & negotiations. One this one, even I was shocked!

Today we close!! Who would have thought the process would have gone so smooth, without hiccups, surprises or stressors. All the while selling for $50K more than our expected price. This was all possible because of the sales team of Michelle and Emma Shelton. Not only were they professional, thorough, knowledgeable and responsive, but, they were also friendly, good humored, and diplomatic. I would very highly recommend them. Thanks Shelton team, well done !!!
Michelle is the best realtor that I have ever used. I wanted to sell my home for 275K and I was not expecting to sell it fast. Michelle suggested 325K and said it would sell fast. It sold at full value in 2 days! We had several offers in that time. When we started to have issues with the buyers agent, Michelle jumped in and took care of it and kept us on track for our closing. Michelle stayed in constant contact with us, giving us daily updates. If you want an agent who will get your house sold fast and for the best price, Michelle is the best. Michelle pays attention to all the details and nothing slips by her. I was especially surprised when on my moving day Michelle and her daughter Emma showed up with dinner for us from my favorite Mexican food restaurant. The photos and aerials were of the highest qualities which is what drove the viewers to see the house. Thank you Michelle and Emma, we could not have done it without you.
Michelle's knowledge and guidance helped us sell our home in one day! She is passionate, honest and trustworthy. Michelle is not only our realtor, she has become our friend. She cares deeply about doing what is right for her clients, questioning and pushing back where appropriate, without damaging relationships. She has also helped us sell another house and negotiate for terms on our new build. She is an amazing, caring individual and I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell, and have.
When it came to selling our Arizona property, Michelle rescued us after we got involved with a lazy and incompetent realtor. She didn’t have to take the listing; at the time the property had been on the market almost 6 months with another realtor and had few updates. Michelle launched herself into the project, arranged a marketing plan, found subcontractors to perform repairs, and worked tirelessly. We received weekly updates and she checked on our property personally. Her strategy was creative, energetic, and innovative. Michelle asked other brokers and realtors for advice during this period and found winning strategies. We succeeded and sold our home for thousands of dollars more than we anticipated. Because of the law enforcement background my family has, we don’t usually write online reviews. We try to keep our online footprint small. However in Michelle’s case we would be doing our military and law enforcement brethren a disservice if we didn’t write about how Michelle earned our trust and admiration. She’s active (if you are former NYPD you will know what that means) and a worker. We trust her, and you will too if you hire her as you should. In our lifetime we have worked with dozens of realtors and Michelle is the only one we trust and call a friend.
I cannot begin to describe how thankful I am that we partnered with Michelle on the sale of our home. From beginning to end, Michelle was there with her knowledge and uncanny ability to ease the stress of this sell. Her knowledge of process and procedure, and her ability to convey these to us truly was helpful. To add complexity to our sale, I had already relocated out of state. Michelle worked with my wife in any way she could to ease the load of selling and prepping a home, which I will forever be grateful for!! We are now looking for a home in Idaho and it truly saddens me that we have to work with another realtor. Michelle truly set the bar high, and I doubt anyone else will rise to her level.
ichelle came recommended from a friend. She was a perfect fit for our "hard to sell" horse property (small home on acreage). She gave us some great advice on things to do that would enhance its attractiveness as far as updates. She knew it's value and didn't let us undersell ourselves. Because of her expertise and integrity, we got a fair asking price, and the new owners got a lovely updated home, also at a fair price. If you're looking for someone that aims for a win-win outcome, you found your gal. We'll be calling Michelle again in a couple of years when we're ready to sell again.
Michelle was incredible to work with from start to finish. Extremely knowledgeable which made our process run very smooth. We had lived in our house for fifteen years and raised our children there. It's pretty much the only home they have ever known. Which made this move a little emotional. Michelle was very intuned to our feelings and truly put us at ease every step of the way! She was truly our partner in this transition. We would highly recommend Michelle for your realstate needs.
Excellent Realtor! When looking for a real estate agent that sold horse properties, Michelle’s name kept coming up in my searches. After signing with her and meeting her, we felt we had a real connection. She even lived very close to our hometown in Iowa. How could we go wrong with an Iowa girl, right? Michelle did an excellent job marketing our house. In addition to the ads, she put signs out all around our neighborhood directing potential buyers to our house. This is something the previous realtor refused to do. She gave us lots of good advice in regards to what we needed to do to sell the house. Our house was originally a two bedroom home which was recently remodeled to be a potential three or four bedroom home. She was able to market it as such which helped attract a lot more potential buyers. Michelle worked directly with our septic tank service and was able to save us some money with them too. Michelle and her team communicated with us to keep us current on everything that was happening on the home, prior to and during the escrow process. She was always on top of everything, very friendly and very accessible. We highly recommend Michelle Shelton to be your Realtor!
