We were so lucky to have Michelle as our out-of-state agent. Last May, we planned a week-long visit to Austin, hoping to purchase a view lot for a new-build. Michelle was the first agent that responded to our search for local realtors.
Throughout that week in Austin, Michelle made us feel we were her only client although we knew it was absolutely not true.
She was sensitive of our tight schedule, cognizant of our wish list, and tirelessly took us to numerous new communities as well as opened our minds to existing beautiful homes for sale. 2 days before our week was going to be over, we saw the perfect lot and were ready to put a deposit. We wanted however to run it by Michelle. Between us calling Michelle and her arriving, Michelle had already done some research on the lot! The minute she sat down, she brought up the integrity of an underground spring in the green belt right next to our lot. After not getting a satisfactory answer from the clueless sales lady,
Michelle took on her own to ask her friend, a retired geologist, to dig into the county’s record on our behalf. Long story short, the deal fell through but we were also assured that Michelle genuinely had our interest in mind.
Disappointed that night, we drove around and came across a quick-delivery house in Leander. It was late and we couldn’t get in the house, but we were able to sneak into the backyard and saw the gorgeous view. We were sold right away. We called Michelle that night, discussed our strategy, met the sales agent in the morning, Michelle negotiated, and papers were signed in the afternoon! We left Texas the next morning.
Story did not stop there. When we went back to our home state, we had but only 3-4 weeks to close the Texas house and sell our existing home. Unfortunately my hometown Realtor was useless, especially after being spoiled by Michelle. So I ended up calling Michelle for everything that I needed advise on, what to paint, what floor is trendy….. Some days, these phone calls lasted over an hour. But Michelle had always been patient with me and advised me like they were her own problems! On the Texas side, Michelle also acted on our behalf with our house inspection and even did the final walk-through of the new house at closing. She did a thorough job and made a difficult out-of-state buying process so much smoother.
Michelle has such a nice personality, professionalism, passion and a can-do attitude that we have already booked Michelle for our next house transaction should that time ever comes!

We've worked with Michelle to buy our house in Austin and she's truly great to work with. She is easy to communicate with and is reachable at all hours - we did have a few late night calls when discussing offers.
In my opinion, what sets her apart is her understanding of the market, especially the Austin market which doesn't obey any set rules. Given the number of transactions she has handled, she has intimate knowledge of the market and knows what's happening all over Austin, not just in a specific neighborhood or zip code.
She is also the first to point out neighborhood or house quirks and fully explores what that would mean to us as buyers. She does a lot of the property analysis even before going to the property and checks if those special considerations would be issues for our family. With Michelle, you'd be buying a house knowing what you are buying.
She also helped rent out a house and handled the rental process seamlessly. Her deep knowledge of the market, her advanced skill level when tweaking offers, her amazing contacts for mortgage brokers and insurance agents and her ready availability to discuss all things real estate is what drives us to want to go to Michelle when we have another real estate need!
I highly recommend Michelle and the rest of the team at AIR Property Group. Michelle recently helped my husband and me to purchase a second home in Austin. She was extremely responsive, thorough, and professional throughout the process. She helped us to understand and navigate the tricky, highly competitive Austin market and to prevail over multiple other offers for a property that is perfect for our needs. She has a great network of service providers that she quickly marshalled once we were in contract to perform inspections and provide estimates for identified fixes. She also connected me with a great contractor/design professional to assist in turning the house into a home. I would use Michelle again in a heartbeat.
We feel extremely fortunate to have closed on our home at the end of January. The Austin housing market went from hot and highly competitive, to rockets to the moon levels. We felt Michelle gave us the best chance to win with every offer we submitted. When our offer wasn't accepted, she had relationships with seller agents to provide feedback back to us on why we didn't win. This level of communication and feedback was extremely helpful with keeping us sane in this crazy market. During the process, Michelle offered helpful advice and guidance on neighborhoods, home conditions, inspectors and more.
Michelle and Sara were wonderful. We moved to the Austin area about a year ago. Michelle helped us find our rental when we first moved. She is very knowledgeable about the areas of Austin and the surrounding cities. This was invaluable to our family as we were brand new to the area. After a year of renting we decided it was time to buy. Sara was incredibly flexible when it came to our showings. Sara was also patient when we wanted spend extra time. One thing that stands out is how focused both Sara and Michelle were on our specific requirements. They were willing to do research when we had questions about the future development of an area, easements and the like.
We looked all over the place at many different types of properties and we finally landed on one we loved. Just before closing we happened to meet the sellers, one of which was a real estate agent. She told us that the reason they accepted our offer, there were many and ours was not the highest, was because the offer was well organized and clean. Now we are in our dream house and we can’t thank the whole team at Air Property Group enough!
Michelle is a First Class Outstanding Real Estate Broker. I had problems with Realtors in the past who did not represent my interests. Michelle listened to me, and we documented what my property interests and requirements were. She was detail oriented, knowledgeable, intelligent, facilitated clear communication, and asked intelligent questions about my objectives. Talking to her was a pleasure since we built trust immediately based on what I was looking for, and how she responded made me feel she understood me. I developed a sense of trust that this person has honor and your interests at heart, since she writes them down, then executes in your interest. She is responsive, and follows through immediately. I had a feeling this person was actively working for me, and in agreement with our goals. This is an outstanding exceptional, intelligent, and hardworking realtor, who has your best interests at heart. I have 20+ years' experience working with realtors, and Michelle is not just intelligent and responsive, but First Class, and I believe to be truly exceptional.
Joseph G. - Investor in Austin
Michelle helped us find a home in Austin and she was great! We were doing most of our search remotely, so Michelle spent a lot of time talking through listings with us and taking us on Facetime tours. When I came to town to see some houses in-person, she even picked me up at the airport to show me around. We looked at lots of houses in a short time and she was always up for showing us one more to make sure we were comfortable with every decision we made. Michelle was very helpful in guiding us through the process and letting us know what to look out for (which was foundation issues in a ton of houses in Austin). We always felt like she was giving us her honest opinion and she was always extremely responsive by whatever means the situation required (email, text or phone). She really did everything she could to make herself available at any time, day or night. She helped us find a great house and she continued to provide great references for other services needed during and after the buying process.

Michelle was very professional from first day meeting her. She was actually the first realtor to return my phone call in less than 24 hours (5 hours, I believe) while it took the other realtors from 4 days to not at all. She came very well prepared for our first meeting and listened to all that I was looking for in a place. She detailed and customized the property search for what I was looking for and not for what she may have needed to get off the market like the other realtors I came into contact with. She went out of her way to show each and every property that was of interest to me. So far as traveling from one side of city to other and back again because I couldn't decide. She gave very detailed info and as much pictures as she could to each of our meetings. She has been with me every step of the way through the process. With her it took less than 2 weeks to find a place whereas I was searching for months with other realtors. She is definitely honest and upfront. That was the best thing. I also could depend on her to answer any concerns.
Neil L. - Invested in Austin
When we were first moving to Texas we had no idea about Austin except that our children were here. We weren’t even sure we wanted to move here! Michelle was the FIRST real estate agent that replied to our query, and she was the ONLY real estate agent that spoke to us as people, not just a number on a list. Michelle was sincerely interested in our personal journey and did an amazing job of guiding us with patience, perseverance, and professionalism to find just the right home that ticked all our boxes. She has a broad and deep knowledge of the Austin market from small homes to very large homes, and from new build suburban to acreage in the hills. It’s a large market! She also understands a home as an investment and has provided great insight for value generation as well as helping us to solidify our own priorities. She helped us find an excellent contractor for a major renovation and she helped us with the little things settling into Austin. We have lived and moved all over the U.S. and internationally and she is head and shoulders above the other agents we have used. I highly recommend you give her a call!!
Ken B. - Relocated from MI to Austin
As an out of state investor, I was looking for someone that is analytical, detail oriented and very selective of the market opportunities. Michelle was the perfect realtor for my needs. Michelle's knowledge of the intricacies of the Austin investment market was crucial and a large part of why I decided to go with her. She was very particular of the properties we considered and many times she brought up issues or possible issues that I overlooked. This is precisely what I look for in an agent - honest, transparent and highly knowledgeable, not someone that simply wants to get a deal done quickly. Throughout the process, Michelle was very helpful and accommodating, doing video tours and reviews of properties, scouting and meeting a variety of people on my behalf. We trust her and were so happy with her that we ended up purchasing multiple properties from her. If you are looking for properties in Austin, TX you should contact Michelle asap.
William K. - Invested in Austin
Teaming up with Michelle was the absolute best experience. She is extremely knowledgeable about the Austin and Round Rock markets and was able to get us top dollar for both of our homes and only on the market for a few days. She is driven, hardworking, and seriously cares about her clients needs. Not to mention she spoiled us with how quick her communication is and getting things done!
We also were relocating outside of Texas and she was able to get us in touch with an agent in the area and help us purchase a home in California with her expansive network. Not knowing anyone in the area can be daunting and Michelle made sure we were set up for success and had the best team in California helping us navigate the uncharted waters.
Michelle is a rock star agent and loves what she does and it shows. My family and I are so grateful for her expertise and guidance through our selling and buying in Austin and California. We cannot thank her enough for all her support and I would strongly recommend her for all your real estate needs!
Kim K. - Sold in Austin
Michelle from day one was professional and strategic in positioning our sale strategy. She recommended a "redo" of the unit to hasten the sale, and recommended a remodeling company. She recommended a state of the art 3D rendering of the 2 story unit that a buyer could "walk" through that was inexpensive to commission. The result was a very professional job culminating in a quick sale with a buyer paying a premium $/sq. ft. price. We have moved more than a dozen times and Michelle is by far the best realtor we have ever used. My advice is follow her suggestions and enjoy the ride!!!
Bill K. - Sold in Austin
Michelle is an incredible agent who helped us buy our first home in Austin TX. She spent lots of time with us, driving around to different neighborhoods where she paid close attention to the kind of property we were looking for. In the end we made a well considered decision about where to live, and we're really happy! Michelle is an amazing agent with loads of real practical experience selling and buying homes and we were grateful to have her expertise on our side. Highly recommended!!!!!
Andy F. - Relocated from CA to Austin
Michelle was extremely professional, helpful and great to work with during our relocation process. She was knowledgeable about the different builders, subdivisions, etc. She asked for our preferences up front and walked through homes virtually with us before we came to visit. During our visit she pointed out items we would have not thought about. Michelle was quick to respond as well as prompt in following up on any details. It was truly a pleasure to work with Michelle during this process and would definitely recommend as well as use her again if we moved again.
Curtis H. - Relocated from UT to Austin
I wish we could give Michelle more than five stars. We were very impressed with her every step of the process. We weren’t initially certain what area of Austin we wanted to live in and her knowledge of the Austin area was very helpful. She definitely steered us away from areas that we would not have been a good fit for us. Through her advice and extensive knowledge we felt like we ended up in a great home and area for us. We are very appreciative that she put the subdivision we ended up purchasing in on our radar in March. Because of what we saw as we monitored it encouraged us to move six months sooner than we originally planned. Since we did everything so quick, It was so helpful to have Michelle following up on everything with the purchase in Texas. Particularly, monitoring the inspections issues. It was a very smooth transaction and, in real estate, that is often not the case.
Paula H. - Relocated to Georgetown
Michelle was great to work with. We were first time home buyers and she was patient as we explored our options. She found us a house that exceeded our expectations. I personally met a couple other realtors and found that Michelle was the most professional and trustworthy. Also, like many other people, we had limited free time to shop & unlike the other realtors, she made time for us on the weekend (she says that's when most people look for houses - so why werent the other realtors available...?) She gave me space when I asked for it ("amped" my credit score for several months..) then when we were ready, she was easy to reach and seemed "energetic" in the search. Great experience for us. Honest & direct - just the way I like it.
Tony V. - Invested in Buda, TX
Michelle was awesome and negotiated a deep discount on the final purchase price of our new home; thank you Michelle for such a smooth transaction!
Wendie T. - Relocated from CA to Austin
I was so lucky to have found Michelle when I purchased my first house. I am a first time home buyer and was very overwhelmed by the entire process. Michelle was with me from start to finish and very eager to help me with any questions/concerns I had. She was always quick to respond and very knowledgeable. She was patient with me until I found the home that was perfect for me. I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Austin area.
Kim V. - Invested in Austin
The best description of Michelle from a lender and buyer's perspective is: "On it". I work with hundreds of agents every year and Michelle is absolutely tops. She is as professional as someone could hope for, a fierce negotiator who I recommend all my clients and friends to. I aspire to have as much expertise in anything I do as Michelle does in real estate!
Randy E. - Lending partner in Austin
We have never had better service when buying a home in Austin when working with Michelle. Being a veteran at home buying (own three others in AZ), we couldn't have asked for a more attentive and perfect agent in Michelle. We must have looked at 30 homes before she found the most amazing home for us! She was patient with our high expectations and she fought for us to get our home after we got into a bidding war. We highly recommend her for all of your real estate needs: short term and long term rentals and buying your forever home!
Melissa S. - Invested in Austin
Michelle Adams is the best real estate agent I have ever known. She thinks strategically, takes initiative, and is honest and ethical. I love her positive, "get 'er done" attitude. I live near Dallas but needed someone to help me sell my house in Austin. Michelle handled it all, from the make-ready, to staging, to negotiating. She kept me advised of progress at every step. She always returned my phone calls quickly. I asked a higher-than-market price for my house and Michelle was able to sell it for even more. She made the processes easy and stress free. I feel lucky to have found her and hope I get an opportunity to work with her again. There is no one else in Austin I would consider to help me buy or sell a property. Michelle is it!
Tom M. - Sold in Austin
My husband & I bought a home & sold a home in Buda, TX. using AIR Property Group. We came back to them to sell our home because of their amazing personal service. First, they listened to our needs and our budget in what we were looking for to buy a home. Navigating the Austin market is challenging. Only after looking at a few homes, we found our home. The service and care through closing was impeccable. When we were ready to sell, it was a simple choice! They sold our home immediately for what we asked. Thrilled with AIR!
Judi S. - Invested and sold in Austin
Michelle is efficient, driven, and fast. Very, very fast. If you need something, she's on it. She's better at quickly returning phone calls, texts, and e-mails than anybody I have ever met. If I needed to reach her, I knew that I could get ahold of her right away. If I had a question that she didn't know the answer to about anything even remotely related to buying a house, she found out the answer and got back to me pretty much immediately. I am certain that she must have had other clients while she was working with us, but she was so responsive and helpful that it felt to us that we had her complete attention. I am so impressed with her, and I can't recommend her enough.
Emily C. - Invested in Austin
We love her. Michelle worked so hard to get us into a house as fast as possible after a devastating flood took our house in Austin. (6 months which is good for flood victims) She is caring, compassionate, and made sure we were happy in our great new home!
Cherie M. - Invested in Bastrop
Always great to work with Michelle Adams! She has helped us buy and sell two houses in the Austin area. She always does great work. We can't recommend her enough!
Courtney M. - Invested and sold in Austin
Michelle is an outstanding real state agent! When you need her, she is there for you. She is not pushy and respects your decisions. She made us feel like we went home shopping with a friend! If you are relocating to Austin, we highly recommend to look for Michelle!
Antonio M. - Relocated from CA to Austin
My husband and I were beyond pleased using Michelle as our realtor. As a first-time home buyer we were nervous and unfamiliar with the whole process. She guided us every step of the way, and educated us in all aspects. She is professional, knowledgeable, and took the time to address our needs. I couldn't imagine using another realtor and cannot speak highly enough of Michelle!
Ashley B. - Invested in Austin
Michelle was a great help to my wife and I during our home buying experience. As first time home buyers, we were nervous and unsure of the process. Michelle made it fun. She was respectful when we decided to wait a few months before looking again, but still kept in touch and let us know how the market was doing. Would gladly work with her again!
James Q. - Invested in Austin
We own a residential rental property. Michelle thoroughly vetted several prospective tenants and found an ideal tenant for us. She kept us informed at every step of the process and discussed the pros and cons of each prospect thoroughly, taking into account our wants and needs. We ended up renting to an ideal tenant. We are very pleased.
Bill M. - Investor in Austin
I finally got a chance to relocate to Austin after landing a job down there. The only thing, it was short notice, and I was in Pennsylvania. I contacted Michelle at AIR Property Group and she found me the perfect condo to rent in the best neighborhood for me! I was able to move right in when I got there and when I'm ready to buy, you can bet I'm going to contact Michelle again!
Kelly M. - Relocated from PA to Austin
Michelle was excellent in finding me a place I could call home. Each time we met to look at homes she was prepared with an itinerary and everything to make the process easy. I would recommend Michelle to anyone who is in the market for a home.
Jeromi S. - Relocated from PA to Austin
Michelle managed the sale of my house. The sale went smoothly. Michelle was always available for my questions, and answered them professionally. She exhibited a good understanding of the local market, and helped me work through all the issues that arose when working with the loan company. I highly recommend Michelle, and would definitely ask for her help again, if the need arose.
Tim H. - Sold in Bastrop
Can't say enough good things about Michelle. Excellent customer service, great negotiation skills, knowledgeable in her field, very personable, dedicated, and trustworthy. We will definitely refer her to all of our friends and will be using her services again in the future.

Michelle was EXCEPTIONAL! She listened to our objectives and made those goals the priority. Michelle is as awesome negotiator, she kept us grounded and helped us maximize our net proceeds.
Amador L. - Sold in Buda
Michelle is one of the best realtors I have ever had the pleasure to work with. She listens to your needs, responds to all calls, and is a great negotiator. Understands the market and has a great attention to detail. She commits and works her magic with passion to meet her clients needs.
Catherine H. - Lending partner in Austin
Michelle was great at listening to us and selecting homes that were interesting. The home that we eventually purchased, she showed us on the first day that it was on the market. Michelle is very knowledgeable about the purchasing process and helped us negotiate the price down, as issues were discovered in the inspection.
Todd B. - Invested in Austin
My experience with Michelle was nothing short of pleasant. She was overly kind, helpful, and above all dedicated to find the right place for us. Never before have I had a realtor that I felt that I could actually trust to have my best interest at heart. Bottom line Michelle is the only realtor I would recommend.
Emanuel B. - Invested in Austin
I had a wonderful experience selling a house thanks to Michelle Adams. She thoroughly explained the process of selling a home in the Austin market, identified the most effective ways to increase my property value, and negotiated an extraordinary deal!
Heather U. - Sold in Austin
I have been working with Michelle for the past year as the listing agent for my rental. What I like most about Michelle is that she aggressively goes after business to meet my needs. My phone calls have always been returned in a matter of a few hours. It has been a great partnership... I set the guidelines and Michelle does the rest!!! She has been very protective of our investment and I would not hesitate to refer her.
Meredith B. - Investor in Austin
I just wanted to say Michelle was excellent to work with! She updated us regularly on our homes status in the market as well as touching base about pricing and showings. We sold our home quickly and walked away with more than we had expected. I have been referring Michelle for years, just thought I'd make it official here :) Thanks Michelle!
Elizabeth F. - Invested in Austin
Michelle was truly a delight to work with. She is extremely personable and helpful. She is an excellent communicator and I always knew I could count on her to quickly respond to any questions I had. She understood exactly what I was looking for in a home. She really went above and beyond and I would definitely work with her again!
Michelle H. - Invested in Austin
Michelle helped us find the ideal tenant for our rental property. We are kind of particular about our tenants, as we live right next door. We don't like barking dogs and smokers. Michelle thoroughly vetted several prospective tenants, kept us informed at every step on the way and discussed the pros and cons of each prospect thoroughly. We ended up very pleased with Michelle and the tenant she found for us.
Michael S. - Investor in Austin
I recommend Michelle Adams at AIR property group to family and friends that end up relocating to the Austin area. She always does a great job at finding them a great place to live.
