Michelle Powell
(151 ratings)
5 out of 5 based on 151 ratings.
151 user reviews.

The common superlatives, such as “excellent, outstanding and highly professional,” are inadequate to describe our experience with Michelle Powell and her team of Ronda and Kristen. From the moment we signed the sales contract, we knew we had chosen a realtor who would go above and beyond in all aspects of selling our home. With the large house, outbuildings and rural acreage she immediately grasped that she was selling a property and a lifestyle, not just a house. We were amazed at how quickly she identified the key features of our property and worked these into an extensive marketing program that included the beautiful staging of our home’s interior, professional photos and an internet video tour, print and social media advertising, and word of mouth promotion within our local community. Thanks to Michelle, our home sold quickly which also meant we needed her help to buy our next home! Yet another example of “going above and beyond,” Michelle quickly got on the phone to her friends and business associates to find us a substitute moving company when ours unexpectedly canceled on the morning of our scheduled move. Michelle cared deeply about us as clients, communicated regularly and stayed completely engaged in all aspects of our sale and subsequent purchase. Without hesitation, we strongly recommend Michelle Powell and her team.

Michelle is a pro. Her knowledge of the market and the contacts she has in the community are amazing. She helped us sharpen our search and then close the deal on a great home. The hundreds of questions we had got answered mostly “now”. If she didn’t know the answer she found it or someone to help right away, mostly “today”. It was so nice to be working with someone who got everything done. And she did it all in a pleasant manner with a smile. Knowledgeable, reliable, efficient, and a pleasure to work with. Great realtor!

Dan Pyne | Home Buyer

We decided after building our Sunriver home 29 years ago that it was time to sell. We picked Michelle and it was the best decision we could have made. She was very sensitive to our apprehension about selling, and was so thorough in preparing our house for sale. We have bought and sold several properties over the years and never had a better realtor. She sold our house two days after listing for a full price cash offer!

Dan Rckard

Michelle was a pleasure to work with for our land purchase. She was quick to respond, very knowledgeable, and has a good team supporting her.

I wish I had 4,289 more houses to sell so I could sell them all with Michelle Powell I also wish I had 4,239 more houses to sell because it would mean I was extremely wealthy.

Jim Riswold

Michelle Powell was amazingly helpful during our Sunriver house sale! Our home sold the first weekend it went on the market! Getting our home ready so quickly for Thanksgiving weekend market goes to Michelle and her team member Ronda! What a pleasant experience. Michell knows how to get things done with efficiency and professionalism!

Melinda Riswold | Home Seller

I have dealt with literally hundreds of realtors in my career as an architect and developer, and I can honestly say that Michelle Powell is as professional, efficient and qualified as they come. When you text, email or call Michelle, she will absolutely get back to you, and soon. She is a pleasure to work with.

Steve Nuetzel | Home Seller & Home Buyer

Michelle helped us buy and then sell our wonderful Sunriver vacation home. She also helped us buy our current lot in Crosswater. She is the most upbeat and knowledgeable agent we have ever worked with! Michelle always kept us posted with updates during our transactions, and answered all of our questions (there were many!). We truly trust Michelle and love the time we have spent working with her!

Connie Perala | Home Seller

Michelle really had her hands full with us! We were buying a home as a 1031 Exchange which we knew nothing about - other than our purchase in Sunriver was contingent on the sale of our other property. With Michelle's help, we found the perfect Sunriver home even before it was listed. She helped us make the offer which was accepted. However, we ran into several issues with the sale of our Exchange property so Michelle had to work with the stall of that process. To top it all off, Michelle was representing both sides; us, the buyers as well as the sellers. She and her team handled everything with the utmost efficiency and professionalism and we were very impressed and elated with their outstanding service! I hope we don't need a realtor for a long, long time because we love our new house, but if we ever are looking to buy or sell in Sunriver, our first call will be to Michelle and her team, the best!

Tyler and Carmel McClung | Home Buyer

My husband and I have bought and sold properties from Southern Cal to northern and central Oregon. We have never had a more positive, professional realtor than Michelle Powell. Incredible knowledge of the market at any point in time and a no “BS” approach to showing viable properties within our price range. If you are serious about buying real estate in Sunriver, Michelle is the person you want as your agent.

Sophie George | Home Buyer

Michelle and team are incredible. We were purchasing from a distance and Michelle was way ahead of all potential problems for an was smooth purchase. She even was communicating and working our purchase from her vacation. Michelle is the only realtor I would use in Sunriver. Thank you Michelle.

Randy Miller | Home Buyer

Michelle is a pleasure to work with in every way. She is incredibly responsive, always upbeat, and very professional. She is a good negotiator, and represented us and our interests beyond what I would have expected. Thank you Michelle for the great service!

Terry & Sue Healey | Home Buyer

After over two years of sale-by-owner effort, our decision to work with Michelle Powell was based on statistics – she sells more homes in Sunriver than other brokers. But her success in selling our hangar home in less than sixty days was based, not upon statistics, but rather upon Michell’s personal excellence. Bright, personable, disciplined, an excellent communicator, a natural multi-tasker, with excellent knowledge of real-estate procedures and the market – all true - but from my observation, the key to her success is unimaginably hard work and having developed a great team. That team gives her depth and resilience. Yet, because she is personable, disciplined, and an excellent communicator, her pace does not make her clients frantic trying to keep up. She was available, responsive, and amenable to even my silliest requests regarding process and showing. Michelle allowed me full engagement in the sale. The comment I made to Michelle when we closed was, “I could not have imagined better representation for my home.” I should have also said, “I couldn’t have imagined smoother execution.” Thank You Michelle and Team – it was perfect from start to finish.

James Blaisdell | Home Seller

Michelle went far beyond the scope of simply handling the sell / purchase aspects of my transactions. She was constantly responsive with invaluable advice and provided numerous referrals to aid in making the transition. I could not be more pleased with Michelle's representation!!

John Fedrizzi | Home Seller & Home Buyer

Michelle was wonderful to work with! When we found the house we knew we had to have she helped us through all the hurdles that stood in the way - quick (and shifting) timelines, multiple contingencies, and coordinating everything with us from afar. She was professional, communication was great, and she was so nice through it all. We couldn't recommend her enough!

Brittinay Shields | Home Buyer

As our realtor was heading out of town on vacation, Michelle took over the transaction mid-stream and immediately put our minds to rest. We had made a cash offer with the closing in just a little over two weeks. We complicated matters by having to return to the Portland area. Everything went as planned and we appreciated the quick response time Michelle provided for all of our many questions. She's efficient and a pleasure to work with.

Rob & Cheryl Sirvaitis | Home Buyer

Michelle was diligent, hard-working, optimistic and professional in all of our dealings with her. Her assessment of the value of our home was spot on. Her approach with its sale was systematic, and her communication skills thorough. She is detail-oriented and follows through on every part of the process. She has also assembled a wonderful team to help us through that process. We feel fortunate to have had her guide us through the sale of our home.

Judy and Richard Jenkins | Home Seller

Michelle did an excellent job finding just the right property for us in Sunriver. As we live 500 miles away, Michelle had to do a lot of extra work with video and photographic information to show us and then sell us the home remotely. The process went very smoothly and we are delighted to be in our new vacation house in Sunriver!

Patricia Shore | Home Buyer

Michelle is a remarkably skilled professional. Within a week of listing our home we had a full price offer. The transaction process itself was particularly smooth with Michelle's expert and prompt attention to all details. We had an A+ experience with her and her very capable team.

Martha & Bob Gibson | Home Seller

We worked with Michelle to buy a home in Sunriver, she was outstanding! Then we decided to relocate to Bend full time. Michelle helped us find the home of our dreams within the timeframe we needed! The follow up for us is everything!

Grant Riggs | Home Buyer

Michelle is a dynamo! She is fun to work with and knows her stuff! My husband and I had a limited time to get to know the area and see all that we could see, and Michelle helps cut right to the heart of matters. Guided by her resourcefulness with a sprinkling of intuition, Michelle ensured that we landed the house of our dreams--and it wasn't even officially on the market! Kudos to this savvy lady and to us for being smart enough to work with her! Don't miss your chance to do the same!

Katie Post | Home Buyer

We listed our home in Sunriver with Michelle and her team went to work; staging, publicizing, securing inspections etc. In 10 days we had an offer, countered, and the buyer accepted. Closed March 1st. Mostly appreciated the continuous and timely communication from Michelle and her team. Very professional and effective.

Fred and Sharon Sackett | Home Seller

Michelle is a consummate pro: she's experienced in the market, has great judgment, is super responsive, and has a contact list a mile long. She's the best broker we've ever worked with.

Elia Popovich | Home Buyer

Michelle definitely lives up to her reputation as the number one real estate broker in the Sunriver area. She is a professional to the MAX. Since we live in Silverton and didn't have access to all the services that we needed to ready our home, Michelle was instantly there to help us navigate. She didn't leave any stone unturned to complete the sale of our home. We would recommend with confidence her to any of our friends. In fact, we have already initiated a referral. Thanks Michelle!!! Todd & Pattie Vogel-Mullane

Todd & Pattie Vogel - Mullane | Home Seller

We are over- the -top thrilled with Michelle who helped us sell our Sunriver Home. We originally went with a different realtor who was very disappointing. We switched to Michelle, and in one day she had an offer on our home! She was very communicative during the whole process and we couldn't be more thrilled!

Nancy Bolton | Home Seller

We are so thrilled with our experience using Michelle Powell to help us purchase our first home in Sunriver! It took us several years to find "The One" and during that time Michelle was always available to answer questions, give us honest advice and feedback, and assisted us with whatever we needed. She responded to emails or texts immediately. Michelle is an absolute professional and I will never use anyone else when it comes to real estate in Sunriver!

Michele Johansen | Home Buyer

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Michelle and her team on the purchase of our vacation home in Sunriver. As a realtor myself I know how difficult her job is. She always responded in a timely fashion, fulfilled all of our requests, and was a real pleasure to work with. We would recommend her to all of our friends.

Katie Riggs | Home Buyer

Working with Michelle was nothing but a positive experience. She lived up to her reputation - always pleasant and positive to work with. We appreciated her honest and accurate pricing of our home. Thank you Michelle!

Scott and Karen W. | Home Seller

Michelle was absolutely wonderful to work with! She gave us great advice every step of the way and kept in contact with us and let us know what was going on. She helped get our house ready for the market with needed repairs and suggested great contractors to do the repairs. She also has great people working for her as well. Michelle is my Central Oregon Realtor!

Cindy Barrick | Home Seller

My Brother-in-law had used Michelle on two occasions and she came to me very highly rated. I wasn't disappointed, she lived up to her reputation. She was professional in all aspects of the transactions. She responded quickly my inquiries, and had a back-up when she was on vacation. She even did light staging of the house. She also knows the Sunriver Community well and is very resourceful if there are inspection items that need to be remedied. I know this isn't always possible, but I had a contract on my house in two weeks and it closed a month later. She was awesome to work with!! Diane Watson

Diane Watson | Home Seller

My husband and I were lucky enough to have Michelle as our realtor as we navigated the busy real estate market in Sunriver. We felt extremely lucky to have had her help and greatly relied on her expertise to assist us in making the decision to purchase our vacation home. Michelle responded to all of our inquiries (typically within minutes) and if she was unavailable, she'd have Kristen (who was also terrific) send an email to assist us. As clients, we always felt that we were important to Michelle, which was really nice considering how busy she is! We would highly recommend Michelle to anyone who's in the market to buy or sell a home in Sunriver and should we ever need real estate services in the future, we will certainly use Michelle!

Richard and Kierstin Schweiger

This is the second time I have used Michelle to sell one of my homes. Each time she makes the experience easy. I felt like I didn't have to do a thing. She took care of everything from start to finish and was great about keeping me informed of the progress as it moved from listing to accepted offer through home inspection, through repairs (which she arranged), and then closing. Definitely the best real estate agent in Sunriver that I have used through 8 transactions over a 20 year period. She is just a real pleasure to work with.

Stan Watters | Home Seller

Michelle is the absolute best person I have worked with. She is available almost 24/7 and always quick to respond. She made our purchasing experience easy and answered any of the ongoing questions, that come along with a purchase, in a clear and timely manner. She is a true star🌟🌟🌟🌟 and I woukdnt hesitate to recommend her to anyone. Thank you michelle - you deserve the five stars I am giving you.

Caroline june Mahoney | Home Buyer

Our experience with Michelle was extraordinary, albeit brief. We informed Michelle from the road (LaPine) that she was our choice for realtor. By the time we reached Chemult she had a description of our home circulating among her peers at Sunriver Realty. By Klamath Falls Michelle informed us our home was being shown. By the time we got to Weed, CA. we learned they had been in the house for over an hour and once we reached our evening destination in Redding, CA Michelle called to say an offer at the asking price was being prepared. In other words, it took Michelle and her team less than five hours to sell our home from the time she got the listing. We are happy to say the rest of the process went equally smoothly and less than six weeks later the check was in our bank. Despite a well deserved vacation in Hawaii, Michelle and her team were never out of touch. We give Michelle our highest recommendation. Mike and Leslie Crisp

Mike and Leslie Crisp | Home Seller

Michelle Powell is the ultimate professional! From start to finish, she listened to our desires and needs and provided timely, appropriate advice. Not having a definite date to sell, she was never aggressively trying to get our house listed. We met with her about a year before we sold, seeking her opinions on which rooms, and how extensively, we needed to upgrade for Sunriver. Then a few months before we wanted to test the market, Michelle told us the price we could expect for both furnished and unfurnished. Within 24 hours, a realtor in her extensive network had a client for us! Taken totally off-guard, we decided to go for it! We received an offer, but since we weren't desperate to sell, Michelle agreed that we should stick to our asking price. We were out of town at the time, and had several other trips scheduled, so we relied on Michelle and her team to handle many of the steps necessary to keep the ball rolling. She was in constant contact with us by phone, text and email during the entire process. . . . . . . We have bought and sold many houses through the years and our experience with Michelle Powell had to be the very best! Michelle has our highest approval and recommendation.

Amy and Bruce Hedeman | Home Seller

As an owner of a real estate office myself and a 30 year agent, I have worked with all kinds of agents. I was impressed with Michelle's honesty and willingness to make sure all of the details of the listing and sales process were dealt with. She has an excellent team put together and it shows. Any question my husband or I had was answered promptly and we were kept well informed of what was going on. We had multiple offers come in on our home and I believe that had a great deal to do with the staging, photography and attention to detail that Michelle provided. I highly recommend her!

Kathie Robidou | Home Seller

Working with Michelle was amazing. She represented our home gracefully and accurately. Michelle is a busy broker but never did we feel like our questions or home took second seat to anyone or anything. At times we wondered if she ever rested. Our calls and questions were answered promptly and completely. Michelle was in regular contact keeping us up to date with any developments, showings or interested parties. If an issue came up with the property she was ready and willing to get on it. Her husband even helped us out with snow removal when contractors were too busy to do the job. I have purchased and sold a number of properties and I can honestly say Michelle deserves the five star rating we are giving her.

Jim & Gayle Stone | Home Seller

We have never had such a positive real estate experience as we had with Michelle. We are out of town owners, which we feared would make things difficult for us, but we shouldn't have...Michelle took care of EVERYTHING for us. She was professional, timely and offered us just the right amount of guidance. She has set a high bar for us for real estate transactions in the future.

Kelly and Gary Moore | Home Seller

We were involved in three simultaneous real estate transactions. Without the professional and complete assistance of Michelle we would likely have a had a very stressful experience. But Michelle got us through the process with minimal pain. For that we are eternally grateful. Thank you.

Joe & Susan Huseonica | Home Seller & Home Buyer

Michelle came to us from a family referral. She did an amazing job, staying on top of all the pertinent details, keeping in close communication and going above and beyond in a number of situations. I would not hesitate to recommend her.

Drew Barab | Home Buyer

We can't say enough about our positive experience working with Michelle. She kept us informed throughout the process, and kept us apprised of the housing market. As out of state sellers, this was extremely important to us. From start to finish, the process was seamless. We wouldn't hesitate recommending Michelle to anyone needing a professional agent.

Pat & Mariet O'Leary | Home Seller

We've bought and sold a number of homes in the past and never has a sale gone so quickly and smoothly as when we listed with Michelle. Thanks to all of Michelle's connections in Sunriver our house sold before it even made it to the multiple listing! Other agents just know that she is the one to talk to when it comes to the local pipeline. We were also impressed by her network of service providers, whatever we needed to do to the house to prep it for sale she had a great recommendation for someone who could do the work. It was wonderful working with someone so genuinely nice, competent, and knowledgable about her market, and who always exceeds expectations.

Pam & Dale Yocum | Home Seller

Michelle and her team were incomparably attentive and helpful in selling my house. She was, of the 11 realtors I've had throughout my adulthood, the best. She is in constant communication and takes care of details with tremendous efficiency. I would highly recommend her. You can't get better.

Angela Allen | Home Seller

Michelle and Kristen were the best. Our home was sold almost immediately and the process was so easy. No stress with this team of agents. I would recommend Michelle and Kristen to any buyer or seller.

Pat and Trudy Ravins | Home Seller

Michelle was very professional and always kept in constant communication, which was very important to us. Her entire Real Estate team right down to the cleaning crew were invaluable and easy to deal with.

Deb S | Home Seller

Michelle handled our sale transaction very smoothly. We had a few issues that needed to be addressed and she handled the contractors and got the items resolved quickly. Highly recommend her and would not hesitate to use her in the future. Thanks Michelle.

Maurie Bassett | Home Seller

Michelle did an excellent job helping us purchase a home in Sunriver. We are new to the area and were completely ignorant about the many details of buying a house. She made sure that a good inspection was done and the required work was properly done. She kept us informed at all times and was quick to respond to any questions that we had. She is a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone purchasing or selling a home.

Judith Dyer | Home Buyer

We recently completed the process of selling our vacation home in Sunriver. Selling real estate while living out of state can prove challenging, but the experience in dealing with Michelle and her team was outstanding. I'd gladly recommend her to anyone who is interested in working with an expert, who is professional and personable all at the same time!

Drew Zurek

Michelle was simply first-rate. She stayed in contact with me during the entire process, then even helped me with some issues after I had already purchased the home. I have already recommended her to several friends and would highly recommend her to anyone.

Keith Bengtsson | Home Buyer

Michelle is very knowledgeable about the Sunriver market and is a joy to work with. My transaction was easy and quick.
