She always listened to us when we had questions. Always put the extra effort into every aspect of whatever she does. She will work hard to either find the right home for you or get the best buyer for your home. Michelle is a great person and offers the personal touch to assist with the sale or purchase of your home. You can trust her honesty and integrity.

She kept us well informed of the status and process of selling our home and buying our new home. Michelle effectively explained the selling / buying process. Michelle was very professional and her guidance through the whole process made it stress free.

"Michelle is a great agent that goes above and beyond for her clients. Along with being extremely organized and dedicated, she is also very knowledgeable about the area and the market. She convinced us to list our home for more than we thought it would sell for and she was right - we had multiple offers the first weekend and ended up getting slightly more than the asking price. Michelle was always there for us throughout the process, from communicating with us in regard to showings and providing feedback to giving advice on staging our home. Whenever we had a question, she was just a text away and quickly responded. I can't recommend Michelle enough to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."

"First things first, in today's day and age it's hard to find people with good work ethic and Michelle's is one of the hardest most dedicated agents out there. I'm a single man with zero taste in style or colors and she was always more than generous to stop over during the remodeling of my house to sell, she helped me out with colors and staging. I think without her knowledge of the real estate game and her unique skills on staging a home my house would have never sold in 4 days like it did. I highly recommend Michelle for all your real estate needs and I promise you will never be sorry. Michelle it was an honor working with you on the sell of my home, I appreciate how you laid all the details out in a way that I could understand and the most important thing to me was all I had to do was enjoy the experience and I knew that she had my back because you honestly cared"

"We had a very positive experience while working with Michelle during the sale of our house. Some her more noticeable strengths include communication, flexibility, work ethic, and enthusiasm. She pays attention to detail and truly understands the buying/selling process. She even caught a financial mistake that the attorney missed at our closing! I would definitely choose Michelle again for this process."

"Michelle Bender, who works for Mars Realty in Mars Pa. worked on the sale of my home in Valencia, Pa. Michelle was extremely knowledgeable about the local market trends at the time i listed my home with her. She was responsible for giving me insights into setting up my home to make it more pleasing to the eye and helping me set the listing dollar amount based on the current market.

Michelle had a full price buyer for my home within a month and half of listing with terms that benefitted both the buyer and myself.

I highly recommend Michelle because of her exuberant personality, superior knowledge of the real estate business and the extra effort she put toward every detail of the listing and sale of my home."
