Michelle Dickens

Michelle Dickens



Michelle didn’t get into the real estate profession the traditional way. She spent 20 years in advertising agencies developing research and strategies for brands like The Home Depot, Walgreens, and Tabasco. As an Account Planner, her role within the agency was to be the ‘voice of the consumer’ during the strategic process through a deep understanding of people’s needs, goals, and dreams.

After years of talking to people from diverse backgrounds about what mattered to them most, having a happy home always topped the list. She also knows that finding the ‘right’ home is not always easy, and that ‘right’ isn’t defined the same way for everybody.

When she had the opportunity to pivot to a new career, she was driven to put her consumer research and strategy skills to better use: helping people confidently navigate the real estate journey. By patiently listening her clients’ needs and understanding what makes them unique, she digs in to find solutions. She empowers her clients with knowledge of the process and their options, helping them be more confident in their decisions.

Michelle strongly believes that clients aren’t transactions – they are people. People have families, hobbies, goals, and needs. People want a partner and an advocate for their needs. This is where Michelle thrives. That is why she has gained a reputation for being hands-on, responsive, diligent, and solution-oriented.

Michelle attended The University of Texas at Austin where she received both her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees. When not with clients, she and her family can be found enjoying one of the many events unique to Austin, hiking their favorite greenbelt, or working on their yard at home.

I worked with Michelle with the process of buying and selling our last homes (selling our home to get into our new home). Her customer service is through the roof and her attention to detail is amazing. I require a lot of hand-holding, but she answered all my questions quickly and professionally and answered some questions multiple times until I understood. She was respectful and made sure we were on time with everything needing to be done with both the buyers and sellers side and made it look easy. She was able to recommend professionals along the way as well as so many tips and tricks. Honestly, I could ramble on and on for days about how wonderful my experience was - highly recommend her to anyone!

Michelle helped my family find and purchase our home in Austin after our recent move. She was organized and very well-connected with all the right people to make the transaction happen quickly and without incident. We were very happy with our experience!

Working with Michelle was a fantastic experience. We relocated to Austin from VA and Michelle was very helpful throughout the entire process. We found Michelle to be extremely knowledgeable about the Austin Market and very adept at helping us prioritize our needs for a home purchase here. She is detail oriented which is particularly helpful to a Texas newcomer. Michelle was always accessible and a true advocate for her clients. We would strongly recommend Michelle!

We had an outstanding agent with Michelle Dickens. She patiently listened to two individuals that didn’t know what they wanted and found the perfect home for us. Along the way, she sent emails, text messages, and called us to let us know how the townhouse was progressing and “next steps” in the process. We knew we were in great hands from day one and Michelle made the entire home buying experience a pleasure. Our son recommended Michelle because of his excellent home buying experience with Michelle. She lived up to all of our expectations.

If you are looking to buy a home in the Austin area, Michelle Dickens is your Realtor! She is not only knowledgeable of the different areas in Austin and talented as a Realtor, she takes time to get to know you and your needs and interests in choosing the right home for you. In fact, we looked around for several weeks but Michelle took it upon herself to show us a house that we may have not otherwise found and it is now our home! I highly recommend Michelle as your first or next Realtor.

Michelle was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable in helping us find a tenant for our rental property. She was very prompt in helping us with any questions we had and her recommendations were always good. The listing she created was great and once we did get our prospective tenants, she made the process of going from application to signed lease and moved in very easy. She was also very helpful with some of the prep work to ensure the property was ready to list, which was especially valuable to us since we don't live in the same city where our rental property is. Would recommend Michelle to anyone looking for a great Realtor!

I really enjoyed working with Michelle. She is organized and knowledgeable. She did thorough research so we had good information to determine our asking price and we were able to get our offer accepted on the house we wanted in less than a week! She also made sure everything stayed on track so that there were no issues with our closing. I highly recommend Michelle and I really like how the company website is organized.

My husband and I were very pleased to have Michelle as our Realtor. We experienced a very smooth transition. She was available and flexible with our schedule, which is nice. She was very knowledgeable and answered any questions we had in a timely manner. Thank you, Michelle. We would gladly recommend her to our friends and family.

Michelle was great throughout everything. As a first time buyer, she helped me with everything and took the time to explain things to me and answer all of my questions. I feel like Michelle really did have my best interest in mind. I would definitely use Michelle again and recommend her and Realty Austin to others.

Michelle was awesome! Super responsive, never got annoyed when I had a million tiny questions to ask. She worked with us from the very get-go and is going to keep up with us even after we closed. We will continue to recommend her to our friends and family.

I probably wasn't the easiest client to work with. I'm sure there are always worse, but Michelle conducted herself in a completely professional manner the entire process. Michelle earned our trust through the tedious task of selling our home and always stayed positive even in the most frustrating of times. Michelle is tenacious and for this reason we decided to welcome her on our journey to find a new home. Michelle has excelled in every way imaginable. To put it lightly, Michelle exceeded our expectations! I could not recommend her highly enough. I honestly felt that Michelle always had our best interests in mind in all of her suggestions and ideas. Michelle will always be considered a friend to the Torres family!

LeeAnn and I very much appreciated working with Michelle. She was a big help especially since we were from out of town (Kansas City). She was a great resource and always very responsive. We would definitely refer others to Michelle.

Michelle Dickens with Realty Austin is great! As a first time home buyer, she made the process easy and painless. She was readily available and offered suggestions on anything we needed. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the area.

Michelle is the ultimate real estate professional...knowledgeable, proactive, and always acting in her client's interest. It was pleasure working with her.

It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Michelle. She helped me find a home in Austin extremely quickly and was very responsive and professional throughout the process. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new home.

Michelle was great at customizing searches on our portal to help us locate potential houses. She was always quick to reply to inquiries, was very knowledgeable in the whole process and put us at ease when we started freaking out at times. We found our perfect house on the first trip out because of her diligent and insightful nature. She had scheduled four tours and we were able to see eight houses that day, one being the house we bought that was not even on our radar. She helped us through the financing process all the way through closing. After closing, she still gives us advice and referrals to reliable, affordable contractors for projects we want to do and stores with great deals. She played a major part in making the potentially very stressful process go quite smooth. We feel very lucky to have found Michelle and would recommend her to anyone looking for a new home.

I have bought several houses over the years and have worked with many realtors. I can say that without a doubt Michelle Dickens of Realty Austin/Audrey Pudder is the best ever. The words that come to mind immediately are Competent, Conscientious, and Caring (in no particular order). Michelle exhibited a great instinct throughout our buying process for what we wanted and what would be a "deal-breaker". If you are looking for a realtor who will really work to find exactly what you want, I highly recommend contacting Michelle. I'm sure she is equally great at helping you sell your home, though we were on the other end. We closed yesterday on the home we wanted.

Jean Brock

Michelle was incredible from day one. She is very good and professional at what she does. Negotiated a very great contract, got me more in my deal than I was expecting. She went above and beyond to follow up at every phase of the process and being very responsive. Very fast with her work and always keep you updated. We love the house she helped us get. We are very happy and would recommend her to anyone looking for a home in Texas!

John Ilboudo

Michelle was such a delight to work with in all aspects of the process. She is very knowledgeable and was able to answer every question that I had, she was able to provide me with referrals for various home related needs, and was extremely timely with all of her communications. I will be using her for all of my future needs and referring all of my friends to her as well.

Nicole Lee

Michelle does the worrying (and the heavy lifting) for you. She's informative and provides accurate info. She goes above and beyond not because she has to, but because that's who she is and how she treats her clients.
