Michelle and Monique recently helped us sell our home of 28 years. We had interview 3 different agents from different companies, but Michelle impressed us with her very positive attitude, her willingness to meet our target dates and her very positive suggestions for selling our home. She helped us to set it up for sale, providing us with names of good, reliable contractors for power washing and some wallpaper removal.
With Monique also on board, we received an offer after the first open house. Unfortunately, with pending changes to the mortgage rules, prospective buyers were overextending themselves and the first two offers collapsed due to funding. Each time, Michelle and Monique were able to provide good new offers within a few days and the third offer succeeded, at our asking price.
We had made an offer on a home in another region of BC and when it seemed that deal might not succeed due to the failing health of the seller, Michelle jumped into action to ensure the paperwork was completed before the deadline.
Michelle and Monique made a great team and were very supportive throughout the process. We would be happy to work with them again and feel confident in recommending them to others.

I've worked with Michelle Forsberg numerous times over several years and somehow- even though you wouldn't think it possible- she just keeps getting better and better! She's extremely professional, hands-on, and authentic. She has always worked to get me the best deal when buying, and top dollar when selling.
After she helped me buy my newest home- a gorgeous condo (bought in pre-sale), we waited until the best time to list my property. This time, I worked with Monique as well and WOW do they make a great team! With all their preparation and presentation we received multiple offers after the first open house and it sold OVER-ASKING!
I wouldn't recommend anyone else!

Monique and Michelle Forsberg are fantastic to work with and come together to make a dynamic duo; Monique brings a fresh approach to realty while Michelle has an immense wealth of industry knowledge & experience in negotiations that can't be rivaled- once you see them at work you will be glad they're on your side.
As a first time home buyer they took all the uncertainty out of the process, walked me through every step, and ensured I got the best deal on the best property possible for my budget. They are thorough, hard-working, experienced and personable. When I'm ready to move up the property ladder they will be my first and only call!

Thanks again for such a wonderful home buying and selling experience. You and Monique really are a wonderful team. Always one step ahead to help thing go so smoothly. We purchased our first home with you 32 years ago and we were so happy that you could help us once again. You truly are the best realtor and would recommend you highly.

Dear Monique & Michelle,
Please accept our warmest thanks and appreciation for the quick and efficient sale of our condominium. You were the strongest choice among the realtors we interviewed and the only ones to initially meet us with research done. In that meeting you gave us options, listened to our input, showed a clear understanding of the situation and concisely spelled out your market-based rationale behind the sales plan we all agreed upon. Your followup through the various showings was timely and your plan- and our sale- came together as precisely as you'd predicted. simply put, it was impressive.
Thank you for the exceptional work you did on our behalf and for the energy and enthusiasm you put into the process. You made us feel like we were your singular focus- a significant achievement given your professional activity level. And finally, thank you for referring us to our next realtor in the new market we were considering as we had a wonderful result there as well. This type of teamwork adds so much to your overall strength in the industry.
We now regard you as "our realtors" and have already begun to recommend you. We enjoyed working with you both and wish you continued success.

Moving and living in another country where the language, culture and environment is different and trying to be a part of this new place is not an easy task. Now just imagine how impossible it is to even think about the small possibility of buying a place... for us it was a very far-off dream.
After finding out we were not qualified to buy a year ago, we continued to visit open houses, searched for financial advice and saved for this dream. It wasn't until we looked into viewings in North Surrey where we met Monique and Michelle and everything changed. We feel so blessed to have found them- they cared for us and helped us every step of the way, connected us with the right professionals (mortgage broker, lawyers), and knew EXACTLY what we needed from the start.
We have now purchased a gorgeous new home, that is beyond all of our expectations and within our budget and specifications. We are ready to start a new life with our first baby on the way!

We'd been thinking of moving for a while, but we were weary of the unknown process. I'd been a purchaser once before, but never a seller. Monique and Michelle sat down with us and first listened to make sure they understood our scenario before crafting a plan. Their knowledge of the current market, attention to detail, dedication, and strategic marketing enabled us to buy our dream home and sell our lovely condo in a process we can only describe as stress-free. They made it easy for us every step of the way. Their connections to mortgage brokers, lawyers and home inspectors made the process easy. They don't just know people- they know the RIGHT people. We really appreciated their guidance and are thrilled with the results.
Bita and Omid Khatamgouya (March 2017):

Jodie and Mike Hall (April 2016):
Michelle sold us the home we are living in now 21 years ago. She was so patient with us back then as she had driven me around to probably thirty some properties before we found just the right one.
21 years later we decided to jump back into the real estate market and there was no hesitation on who to call. Michelle helped us purchase our new home and when it came to selling our home she was right on top of everything. We listed our home on Monday and sold it on the following Tuesday, over asking price! Now that's the kind of result you want.
Michelle always took the time to lay out all the details, wanting us to be sure that we would not have any financial surprises. This is such an appreciated step. Mike and I both feel that Michelle had our best interests at heart. We can tell that Michelle loves her job, she pays attention to details which makes all the difference when you are buying and selling your home. I would never hesitate to refer anyone selling or buying to give Michelle a call. You won't be disappointed you did!
