Michelle is the best realtor I have ever worked with. Her customer service is outstanding and works very hard for her clients.

In mid September I made an unexpected trip back to Massachusetts and at the last minute asked Michelle if I could view three condos. I was interested in returning to Northborough, but I also saw some lofts listed in an old factory in Worcester. Michelle was willing to set up a viewing if I had my heart set on the lofts, but had the moral courage to point out that from an investment standpoint the property could be risky. I have recently received emails from Redfin that inform me that the price of those condos keeps being reduced.
Had I bought one I would have immediately lost money on the property. On the second day going to view properties with Michelle I found my new home. It was so clear that it was the right one. Two and 1/2 weeks later I was on record as the new owner. I paid less than asking price, which helped since I really had to stretch to be able to afford it. I currently live out of state until the beginning of December. When it was clear that a trip back to Massachusetts for the closing would not be possible because of ill health, Michelle arranged with the attorney to enable me to handle everything from out of town. Talk about going the extra mile! It was a real blessing to have Michelle as my realtor to meet my real estate needs, both in selling and purchasing. I highly recommend letting her assist you.

She spent well over a year giving us guidance on how to get our house market ready. The recommended updates made the world of difference, but were not over the top cost wise. I felt free to consul t with her at any time. She always had quick response times. My husband thought that if we could sell our house for the high 380's it would be well worth the effort and would enable us to realize our retirement dreams. After my husband's passing it seemed time to let go of my home. Michelle's compassion was incredible and I felt well supported. Thank goodness all the updates had just been completed and much of the house had been packed up for the sake of refinishing the hardwood floors. My husband got to enjoy the beauty for 2 and 1/2 months. We put my house on the market on a Wednesday in May and had an open house that Sunday. There were 6 offers, 3 of which were over asking price

We lived in Northborough for 5 years. Michelle is very involved in the town. She sits on a variety of town boards and has been very involved in the town's annual Applefest event. Everyone that I have talked to in the town spoke very highly of Michelle and she sells a lot of homes in town so you see her name often on real estate signs. When we decided to sell our home Michelle was extremely professional. She was patient as we did not know when the house would be put on the market and we would call her saying that we need to postpone by a week or a month. Michelle always listened, calmed us down and told us that she would be there when we were ready. She then brought in several people to help get our home ready to be sold. She has a marvelous eye and was really able to get our house in fantastic shape. Her photographer was excellent, so the overall presentation of our house was very well managed. Michelle also knows the market and priced our home to sell. We had 4 offers after

Michelle helped us through the entire selling process from beginning to end in Northborough. She then later came and acted as our buyers agent in the town we moved to near Boston. We were having problems deciding on a local agent and decided to bring in Michelle. Overall I can not recommend Michelle high enough. She is one of the best real estate agents that we have used in Massachusetts

Michelle was extremely helpful when we wanted to put our house on the market - she knew exactly what we needed to focus on as far as maintenance and repair for the best showing. She was always available to answer our questions and kept our spirits up when we were second guessing. It’s an emotional experience when you sell your home and we felt Michelle really cared about us as a family and not just as a commission. She proved over and over again her value as our agent because of her honest communication, professionalism and local market knowledge. I would highly recommend her.

Selling a house while you are still living in it versus after you have moved is a totally different experience! I hired Michelle after I had moved out of my previous home and never realized how much of an asset she would be. Michelle is the type of agent whom you can trust and will be responsible for all aspects of the sale. She helped me to get the house ready for the sale and took care of so many tasks that I wasn't able to handle on a day to day basis. For example, whenever there was a document needed from town hall, she would handle it for me! There were so many inspections, service calls and appointments during the selling period and she took care of all of them for me. Having her sell my home was a total package and I am very happy that I hired her as my agent. She comes strongly recommended!

"Michelle helped me purchase my home a few years ago, and when it was time to sell I didn't hesitate to call her once again. Her professionalism and knowledge in this area made it possible to sell my home in less than two months, and during the holidays!  Any time a small issue came up, Michelle took care of it and made this process as seamless as possible. Whether you are buying or selling, Michelle will make you feel like you are not just her only client, but also a friend. Thank you again for everything."

"I was transferred from California to Massachusetts with my company.  Luckily, one of the people at my new location connected me with Michelle.  She was an expert on Northborough and the surround area and quickly helped me understand the differences between the CA and MA housing markets so that I could understand the range of the homes I should be looking into.  I was able to come out and in less that a week, using the information she had gathered, found a home.  But her help didn't stop at that!  Since I was remote, she helped line up the mortgage broker, lawyer, and insurance company to allow the deal to close as I worked on selling my property in CA.  Even after the sale, she has continued to be a key resource in helping me fix the home and reestablish my life by suggesting handy-men, painters, flooring companies, doctors, pediatricians, orthrodontists, etc.  Her knowledge and contacts within the Northborough area has made a very hard relocation go surprisingly easily.  Thank you Michelle"

Michelle Gillespie was nothing short of a miracle for us!  We had our house on the market almost a year at that point with no activity.  Michelle immediately suggested everything we could do to sell our house.  Within a very short time, the house had multiple offers .  Equally important to us was the amount of involvement, professionalism, knowledge and attention to detail that Michelle showed.  She made this very difficult task a pleasure.  We have never worked with anyone who put in this much effort and care to do anything as Michelle has.  Her communication with us was constant as was her undaunted perseverance in selling our house.  We could never say enough great things about her!

Our dealing with Michelle Gillespie has been nothing short of exceptional.  We were lucky enough to meet Michelle during an open house she was hosting.  From that day forward we knew that Northborough and Michelle were the going to be the right fit for our new Massachusetts home.  She worked with us all summer and early Fall to find a home that fit our constraints (tough constraints to say the least) and our budget.  Michelle was professional, patient,  knowledgeable and  very understanding of our needs and concerns about buying a house. We are so thankful we found her and would absolutely recommend her to anyone!

Working with Michelle was a pleasure; she is knowledgeable and professional, but friendly and easy to work with. She was always very available, and I always felt that she had my best interests at heart, listened to what I wanted and needed, and provided advice and guidance throughout the process. When I found my new hourse, she was in touch every day with a progress report. She kept the ball rolling, right up to the closing. If it were not for Michelle’s diligence and daily attention to every detail in the process, I’m sure I would not be in my new home today.

As a first-time home buyer, the process of buying along with it’s deadlines was very overwhelming. Michelle helped us through the process, explaining what each deadline meant. During the initial stages, her price negotiation skills were very commendable and she got us a very good deal on a home which already had six offers on it. She knows real estate thoroughly and is always willing to help out. She was always accessible, friendly, and very professional. I would recommend her to all my colleagues and friends.
