Favorite Places in Austin

Michelle has lived all over Austin, and has developed a deep knowledge of what makes the city unique. Although she stays busy helping her clients buy or sell in Austin, Michelle finds time to attend the newest restaurant openings in the area. However, she does have her favorites, including Elizabeth Street Cafe, Jack Allen’s Kitchen and Rudy’s BBQ. She also enjoys catching dinner and a movie downtown at Violet Crown Cinema.

Working with Michelle was amazing! She made the home buying and selling experience so easy. Michelle kept me updated at every phase of the process. She has an eye for detail, is super organized, and her experience in the Austin market is evident.

When buying my downtown condo, she personally gave me tours of several properties and explained the differences between them. I ended up going with a new unit at 5th and West. During the walkthrough, Michelle pointed out several issues with the unit that were marked for repair before I moved in. I wouldn’t have caught these things myself; it was her amazing eye for detail and experience that was huge comfort and boon. In the end, I was confident I was making the right choice.

When selling my old home, Michelle offered suggestions on ways I could make small updates that would have a big impact on selling the home. After I made these updates, she worked with me to find a competitive but compelling price for the home. I honestly didn’t think I’d get the full asking price, but in less than a month I had several offers on the home, and it sold for one of the highest values in the neighborhood. She even personally delivered the final check to me at my office, so I didn’t have to make additional trips around town and miss work.

Michelle Sain was more than a Realtor for us, she was a consultant who helped us navigate Austin (we are new to the area) by driving around and showing us neighborhoods all afternoon, and giving us the inside scoop on everything. She expedited the home buying process, made it as pain-free as possible, and saved us tons of money and headaches. She really went above and beyond - she even got repairs done for us after we closed on the house. We would not have found our home without her. I highly recommend Michelle for her exceptional service, knowledge about homes in Austin, and investment chops.

I cannot recommend Rebecca and Michelle enough. We knew we needed some serious help refurbishing and staging our rental house before putting it on the market. Michelle and Rebecca were not just Realtors, they were general contractors, landscapers, designers, painters, lighting experts, accountants, strategists, and comedians. We followed their formula and, as a result, got multiple offers and sold our house for way over asking price. Thank you, Michelle and Rebecca.

Rebecca Gindele and Michelle Sain did an amazing job on my condo.
I desperately needed it staged and they are world class at doing this!
They did more getting it ready than I could have ever expected!!

It led to my place being sold in three days, full price, all cash. Was amazing!!
