Hi, I’m Michele Harps, and I would love to help you buy or sell your home.
The area that I specialize in is the beautiful and close to downtown Seattle area of Magnolia. I live there and love it!
I started my real estate career in the Magnolia area twenty years ago and have purchased, fixed up and sold over 10 homes on my own.
I have also owned and operated a home staging business, where I helped people just like you prepare their homes to sell…fast, and at the best price.
It’s a labor of love to study the market, as I do, every day, throughout the area. The more I know about the housing market and inventory, the better job I can do for you.
I am a native of the Puget Sound region, attended the UW where I studied Fine Art, and started my working career as a buyer of women’s clothes first for the UW Bookstore and then with the Bon Marche (now Macy’s).
I raised two great kids while I working in real estate and home staging, and I am also an artist. You can see some of my paintings at the new Edmonds’ branch of 1st Security Bank.
My artistic talents and creative thirst work well with real estate, and give me a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
When you’re ready to sell your home, I will help you get it market-ready. Working together, we’ll set a price that will get you the most value in the shortest amount of time.
If you’re ready to buy, I enjoy exploring available homes with you and helping you see a home’s potential. I will negotiate the best price possible, using my knowledge and experience.
I understand the pressure and pitfalls that exist during the buying and selling process, and I promise I will help prepare and guide you through all of this with a positive attitude, a “never-give-up” philosophy, and a smile.
