About Michelle Adams

Residential and Investment REALTOR®.

Picture of Michelle Adams

Relocating to Austin in 1999, My family and I were excited for the the opportunities and growth in Austin. My primary focus is investing in the local market and operating my business with enthusiasm and commitment. I am a real estate advisor offering my services in researching current market data, acquiring, selling, and managing new, resale and investment properties. I am detail-oriented, ensuring my client’s transaction process progresses and completes while communicating every step of the way to you and all parties involved. As a member of the National Association of REALTORS and member of the Austin Board of REALTORS, I believe in negotiating fairly for my buyers, sellers and tenants. My in-depth marketing research allows me to negotiate terms that reach the closing table. It is a very exciting time in real estate in Austin. I offer clients over 8 years of experience in the areas of real estate trends, market data, photography, online marketing, direct marketing, website development, graphic design, negotiating, income producing evaluations, development marketing, new home construction and my personal experiences in Austin.

Buying property is a complex and stressful task. In fact, it’s often the biggest single investment you will make in your lifetime. My goal is to become as educated as possible in the real estate market around us, providing exceptional service to each and every client I partner with in the acquisition of real estate.

Currently CNE & GRI , I am also currently pursuing a CCIM designation for use in the commercial real estate market : (Certified Commercial Investment Member) is a recognized expert in the commercial and investment real estate industry. A CCIM is a resource to the commercial real estate owner, investor, and user, and is among a corps of over 9,500 professionals around the globe who hold the CCIM designation.

I will earn my GRI designation in July of this year. Buying property is a complex and stressful task. In fact, it’s often the biggest single investment you will make in your lifetime. At the same time, real estate transactions have become increasingly complicated. New technology, laws, procedures and the increasing sophistication of buyers and sellers requires real estate practitioners to perform at an ever-increasing level of professionalism. As a GRI designee I will have pursued a course of study that represents a solid foundation of knowledge and skills to navigate the current real estate climate—no matter what its condition. GRI designees are recognized nationally. As a GRI designee I promise to act with professionalism and am committed to serving my clients and customers with the highest ethical standards.
