Michelle Batte

REALTOR®

GRI

Michelle grew up in New Mexico and made her way to Texas in 1989 to attend Texas Christian University in Ft. Worth. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s in Social Work. When she discovered real estate, it was a natural transition because her focus has always been helping people reach their goals.

Real estate can be an emotional experience. Michelle’s skills are particularly suited to guiding people through the emotional process of buying and selling real estate. She is a trained listener and problem-solver.

Michelle is passionate about helping people. Her training and experience as an advocate were an ideal foundation for her real estate career. She knows how to assess each situation, find creative solutions, and stick with her clients until their goals are achieved. She works with buyers, sellers, resale homes, production and custom builders, and land.

When she is not working with clients, Michelle is probably outdoors hiking, biking, walking or jogging – any excuse to be outside! Exploring Austin’s endless options for good eats is another favorite pass-time. She is also a long-time supporter of Relay For Life, a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, and Foundation Communities, a dynamic program providing affordable housing for families in Austin.

I have really appreciated Michelle's support in our latest real-estate transaction. She seems to be an excellent agent that cares about her clients.

Michelle absolutely provided exemplary service throughout the process of our property buy in the Dripping Springs area. She is personable, she listened carefully to our concerns, and she helped us find answers to our many questions. All along the way, Michelle provided the support and expertise we needed to feel confident in our choices. Ron and I would definitely refer our friends and family to Michelle Batte.

From the moment we asked Michelle to be our agent, we started getting ideas from her on how to get top dollar for our home. Michelle made several useful recommendations that we followed out of trust in her knowledge and expertise. She got us in touch with people that would help us get the job done, and she followed up with the progress. While the process was stressful for us, as was expected, Michelle remained positive and encouraging, and walked us through every step, answering our questions, providing us information and helping us stay calm. We have already recommended Michelle to at least 3 neighbors who expressed interest in selling their homes.

Michelle was AMAZING and went above and beyond to help me out in so many ways. She was always available to answer my questions and was very organized and kept me on track during the whole process. Moving from Massachusetts, we weren't able to be here for certain things, and Michelle stepped right in without even having to be asked. She represented us during the inspection and did a very thorough and great job relaying all the information we needed. She even spent hours measuring windows and calling numerous vendors to get replacement quotes for us. I really can't express how wonderful she was. She was very professional, experienced, and knowledgeable about the whole process. She earned my trust 100% and that's not easy to do! I highly recommend Michelle Batte to anyone buying or selling in this area. Not only is she the best realtor I've ever dealt with but also one of the hardest working people I have ever met.

My husband and I worked with Michelle on the purchase of some property in the hill country closing last month. Michelle did a great job working with us over the course of several months as we narrowed in on the right lot for our needs. Very professional and able to assist or direct us to the right resources for all our questions. Would use again and recommend to others.

We worked with Michelle Batte and she was the best! :) We were selling one of our rental properties, and we had a difficult tenant in the house. Michelle turned a stressful situation into an enjoyable experience. She sold our house in a month for much more than we were expecting. She was so dedicated, extremely responsive and so nice to work with. We couldn't recommend her more!

We are happy to share our experience with Michelle! She was AMAZING to work with. She was always extremely professional, accommodating and very faithful to us as clients. We have been on the house/land hunt for a very long time, and she stood by us until we finally found THE ONE. We are so thankful for her and know that she will be a great fit for many other clients.

Please know that we had the most wonderful experience working with Michelle. She is truly an amazing person and was such a joy to work with. We could not be happier with all of the help she provided us with. She is an expert at what she does and you are so lucky to have her on your team. I've heard so many horror stories from people who talk about the process and who they've worked with. We did not experience any of those nightmares, and we know it's because we decided to work with Michelle. She made all of the headaches and issues along the way just melt away. She knew exactly what to do and when and handled everything for us beautifully. We cannot thank her enough for helping us find our first home and for helping us purchase it!

We purchased our first home! What an exciting time! What a crazy time... I don't think anyone who's ever purchased their first home - realizes the amount of work that truly goes along with the whole process. Thank God for Michelle Batte with Realty Austin! She was our life saver along the way. She made everything so much easier and helped ease our concerns along the way. Michelle is an amazing person to work with and has truly become a friend in the process. She is trustworthy and cares about the people she works with. We never felt like another number in her busy schedule. She gave us so much of her time and never once complained or made us feel silly for asking questions that I'm sure she hears a hundred times a day. She was so knowledgeable and thought of everything to help us purchase our dream home.

Michelle actually kept in contact with us for over a year before we actually really started looking into purchasing our first home. She gave us pointers and advice so that we could be prepared for the day we decided we really wanted to start looking. She put us in contact with trusted lenders who were just there to give us advice and get us headed in the right direction to be prepared for the home buying process when we were ready. We never felt any pressure but did indeed feel like we had all the tools we needed to start making sure our credit was in the best place possible and we knew in advance how much money we'd need to have saved to start things off the way we wanted to for us to feel comfortable with purchasing.

If you are looking for a realtor to work with. If you're even thinking of the possibility of buying or selling your home. Call Michelle Batte at Realty Austin. She exceeded our expectations and we cannot express enough how wonderful she was to work with. She is the type of person who cares about her clients and truly wants to make your experience with the realty world as easy and pleasant as possible. She stands up for you when needed. She steps in and handles all difficult situations with professionalism and strength. You will not be disappointed you chose her to be your agent. She is so down to earth and is an expert at what she does. I'm so happy we decided to work with her. It was the best decision we made to start the home buying process off right.

She had an assistant named Nicole that we worked with a few times for certain things as well and she was just as wonderful. Realty Austin is the place to go when you're looking to purchase or sell your home. They hire the very best. Michelle Batte is the realtor you need to call! We promise you won't regret it. You'll be making the best decision to start yourself off the right way.

We cannot say enough good things about the professional, pleasant, attentive and thorough service experience that we received (over & over again in the process) from Michelle! She was a fantastic professional, constantly in contact with us to move us along & end up with what we both wanted...a home in Texas near our kids. She is awesome!! She is a 100 on a scale of 10! My son's family had the fortune to have her work on a house purchase for them. The results were the same. Great service with that wonderful personal touch! My daughter and her husband are now planning on selling existing & buying new. She will certainly be the realtor that they use.

When I walked into the building of Realty Austin I was immediately greeted with a smile. It was then that I was introduced to Michelle Batte. Michelle was amazing. After living in my home of 19 years I was ready to move but needed guidance. Michelle helped me step by step and made the selling experience much easier than I expected. She knew exactly what needed to be done to get my house sold as soon as possible, and answered any questions that I had throughout the process. If I had any fears along the way, she made sure to ease my mind. At the end, I was more than pleased with the outcome. In fact, I would recommend Michelle Batte and Realty Austin over anyone in a heartbeat. Thanks Michelle, you were amazing to work with.

Melissa and Michelle were fantastic to work with. They had amazingly quick response time to my questions, gave me plenty of information and were just a pleasure to work with. On a scale of 1-10, they go to 11.

Michelle was an utmost professional throughout the whole process. She strictly adhered to the law, which I thoroughly respect, and even when I decided to rent last year instead of sell she helped me find the contacts to help with that process. I had numerous offers to sell the property at a lower commission rate over the past 2 years but because of Michelle's service and attitude I stuck with her, and I am glad I did. Her honest advice and extreme diligence in resolving all issues helped sell the house quickly and easily. I was extremely satisfied with Michelle's service; She exceeded my expectations, and I will definitely be referring her to friends/family.

We have been involved in the real estate market in Austin over 25 years as residential and commercial property owners, property managers, house flippers, etc. My husband is also a Realtor. As you can imagine, we have met and interacted with many Realtors throughout the years during our real estate transactions. We were so impressed with Michelle's knowledge, professionalism, quick response time and, most importantly, solid yet calm demeanor during negotiations on our first purchase with her. We have already 'partnered' with her on several additional transactions in a less than two months. Over a 25 year period, we have always listed and purchased properties via my husband, but Michelle has done such an efficient job of off-loading work from our busy schedule, it is worth every penny we pay in commission. She truly feels like part of our Team, because she works hard and always has our best interest in mind!

Michelle Batte has been amazing to work with. We were shopping for land in the hill country and didn't know the area very well, and she was so patient and helpful. We drove all over the place - Blanco, Dripping, Wimberley - finally settling on a patch up in Marble Falls - that was a fraction of the price of some of our other contenders. Michelle didn't flinch. Her priority is ensuring that her clients are happy with the place they choose. She is genuinely interested in her clients' well-being - this is what impressed me most about Michelle. She is also is a skilled mediator and negotiator, so the "make an offer" part of the process was easy on us. Michelle's integrity, work ethic, communication skills, and flexibility made our buying experience truly a pleasure, and I cannot recommend her enough.

Michelle Batte is a top notch professional who was able to help us get a last minute showing on a house already in a multiple offer situation. She knew exactly how to write up an attractive offer and had us under contract the next day. She’s whip-smart, cool under pressure and knows how work the fast-paced Austin real estate market.

Michelle Batte is an excellent realtor. She was able to capture our dream home in a budget that was not so dreamy. Our time frame, our abilities to look at homes, and our understanding of the area were barriers in buying a home and she took all of these in stride and found us a place that will serve our family for years to come. I never want to move again, but if I did, I would not hesitate in contacting Michelle again!

My husband and I used Michelle Batte to sell our home and she was awesome! I felt she had our best interests in mind with every decision she advised on. She helped with any questions or concerns we had and was there every step along the way. We are moving to Florida, but if we ever come back, I will definitely use her again!!

Melissa Roberts and Michelle Batte are absolutely amazing! They hit the ground running at our first meeting. We received multiple offers within the first few days. I felt like our interests and needs were their top priority! They were straight-forward and realistic about the process. We are thrilled with our experience!

Michelle Batte was instrumental in helping our family make our big move last Spring. My husband and I had lived in the same home for at least the past 10 years and were truly clueless about the whole process involved with purchasing a home.

Michelle was a perfect fit for us. She was patient and took the time to sit us down to walk us through all the steps. Michelle was honest and clear about setting expectations from the beginning to minimize any frustration, while preparing us to expect the unexpected. Not only did she assist us with setting an appropriate price for our home, but she also assisted us with finding the perfect new home.

Michelle always went "above and beyond" with our family. She worked around our schedules, helped us with finding local resources in our new neighborhood and helped us find the best contractor to get our home ready for sale. Michelle was never pushy, but was always honest in her advice and always gave us ample time to make decisions.

At the end of the day, our house was sold before it ever went to market and she found our perfect home while it was still under construction. I would not hesitate to recommend Michelle to anyone who is looking for a realtor to assist with a home purchase/home sale. Our experiences with her were only positive!

We can't thank Michelle enough for her help. We really appreciate her working with us. I have actually passed her name along to my friend and her boyfriend who will be looking for a house to rent in the near future . Thanks again Michelle for all your help !

Michelle gave us the best professional and personal service we have ever enjoyed with any salesperson. She really knew her stuff and were willing to go many extra miles to help us. We really appreciate all her hard work. We feel like we made a friend in Michelle and wish her all the best.

Michelle was fantastic! Specifically, she immediately showed us that she were willing to listen and learn our style, and sort through our wants and needs, patient with the kiddos, proactive with the search, always very informative through the process, and most importantly, had a near-magical psychologically calming affect on my wife!
It was a pleasure working with Michelle, and I look forward to any opportunity to work with her again!
