"We started with no experience in buying a house, so we put our trust in Michelle Armbruster's hands! That was a winning move, at the time when the real estate market went crazy due to the pandemic repercussions. Thanks to Michelle's efforts, we managed to visit several houses in about one month time. She was constantly available, answering to our questions literally night and day! Finally we put the winning offer, getting the best property available in Brighton during the summer of 2021. Michelle guided us on every step of the process, explaining everything and giving precious advices, literally like a family member, so we quickly learnt to spot good and bad deals. Michelle demonstrated to be a great professional in the sector, so we felt safe for letting her handling our data up to the final step of the house purchase process. Thanks to her we accessed the Reinhart network, which is truly amazing! We set up our home loan and home insurance with them, getting some unbeatable rates. Michelle Armbruster is a great real estate agent and a wonderful person! Do not hesitate to let her help you when buying a house!"

"Michelle was available at all hours of the day/night. Whenever we called, she answered. She was able to help us negotiate on both the buy and sell side of our transaction and we were able to navigate each transaction without losing any sleep. She was a great resource."
"Michelle was on top of everything. This was a remote purchase and we were not able to see the property in person given the pandemic. Michelle reviewed the property and area for us, sent pictures, performed the walk through and ensured all was in place for us. She went over and above in her role as our agent. We are very happy with our experience and the efforts Michelle made that created a smooth process."
- Mitch and Donna Smith
"We loved working with Michelle. She did a great job listening to our needs and wants, helping us navigate the process for building our own home even in a pandemic, communicating with the building company, pointing out details we should be aware of and promptly responding to any questions we had along the way. Our experience couldn’t have been better!"
- Jessica Meier
"We met Michelle at an open house she hosted nearly 5 years ago, long before we knew for sure we would end up in Ann Arbor. Throughout the years, she has remained in contact and has been a friend and ambassador for Ann Arbor, introducing us to many wonderful places and people and finding us great services related to home buying, furnishing, etc. It took a while for us to successfully purchase a house give the many challenges of the market in Ann Arbor, and the added complications of the pandemic. We cannot be more grateful to have chosen Michelle as our buyer's agent. In all things, she offered just the right amount of opinion without ever getting in the way of us contemplating the various houses we considered buying. Kind, straightforward, down to earth, in addition to knowledgable, wise, and familiar with Ann Arbor."
- Dr. David Fresco
"Michelle was fantastic. We listed our home right at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, and she made everything easy, smooth, and comfortable. She had great knowledge of the area and how to price our home correctly (and she was spot on!). She had knowledgeable suggestions for making our house shine, but never did we feel any pressure to accommodate her suggestions. She was always available and held our hands through our first home selling experience. Who knew that selling a home during a pandemic could be so smooth?? I have already recommended her to several friends and will continue to do so."
- Holly Sweet
"Michelle was completely honest and transparent. I had complete trust and confidence in her. Some major obstacles arose in the purchase process and she worked diligently and with integrity to overcome the obstacles and complete the transaction. She has considerable connections in the construction and trades arena and helped us find honest and excellent craftsmen to accomplish repairs and reconstruction. People want to work with someone they can trust. Michelle is trustworthy."

- Todd Seehafer
"I cannot recommend Michelle enough, as she went above and beyond in getting our home sold fast and for above asking price. She is warm, knowledgeable, and professional. She provided us with excellent and affordable references when we needed to get some house appliances fixed. She even brought us boxes and helped us stage! Moving can be stressful, but she was constant support for us and even when our first buyer backed out she was ready to help us get back on the market and before we knew it we had another, better offer. She is dependable and I'm so thankful she was our realtor."
- Rachel Hinz
"Michelle made the process of selling our home very straightforward. Of all the stressors involved in moving, selling our home was one of the easiest parts thanks largely to Michelle. She had an intimate knowledge of the neighborhood and a good feel for the market in Ann Arbor.
She was extremely responsive, flexible, organized, and ensured that we were on track to meet our listing deadline. Our house was sold within a week with multiple bids above asking price. She was a pleasure to work with and we would recommend her without reservation to help you buy or sell your home."
- Sam Olesky
"Michelle was so great to work with! She knew the area well and gave us tips to help our home sell quickly. She was very responsive to all texts, emails, and calls. Michelle was a big part of why our transition went through without a hiccup. We highly recommend her and the Reinhart group!"

"I recently became engaged and needed to sell my condominium so I could move to a different city. I worked closely with Michelle and we met several times in preparation for the sale so she could review the process of selling my home and answer the many questions I had. I have to say Michelle was completely organized and did a superb job throughout the whole process. She was very timely with getting back to me with updates on next steps. I could not have been happier! I wholeheartedly recommend Michelle for your home buying/selling needs. Big thanks to Michelle for making the whole process go so smoothly—and for helping me in this next phase of my life!"

"Michelle is a very pleasant person and was very helpful, especially in staging my house. She actually brought in a lot of her own things to help with the staging. She also put a lot of effort into helping me get my home clean for showing. She definitely went above and beyond in that regard. She was on top of all the paperwork and even helped with a few title issues prior to closing."
- Mark Bolinger
"In her service to me, Michelle Armbruster has exceeded the highest standards I have every imagined!!! I never thought that my realtor could have worked so hard and so diligently to transform my house to a home that buyers would make an offer on 72 hours after the property was launched on the MLS!!! Let me explain why I was so completely satisfied with Michelle as my realtor.
First, Ms. Armbruster provided me with an organized plan for preparing the home for sale. She addressed the work that needed to be done for each room in the house and provided me with a timeline so that the house could be ready at the earliest date to take advantage of the earliest buyers at the beginning of the spring season. I am pleased to say that Michelle delivered on her promise. Second, there seemed to be no limit to her willingness to provide services that I needed desperately. For example, I was very shocked when Michelle allowed me to use her own personal truck many times to transport my furniture.
This was an unbelievable act of generosity that I will never forget, but that's how Michelle treated me. Examples of Michelle's devotion to her clients are too numerous to mention here. I must also mention how Michelle came to my house very early on the morning of the first open house (and a few times after that) just to help me do a thorough cleaning of my bathrooms!!!! I welcomed this help because I was running out of time. Finally, when I asked MIchelle why she was so kind and generous to her clients, she said this: 'I am a real estate professional not just for the financial rewards, but for the opportunity to assist people to achieve their goals in life.
'Thanks Michelle, you have helped to solve many problems that seemed insurmountable. You have established a very high standard of service for Reinhart Realtors and for all realtors in the US."

"Michelle not only sold our house, she guided us through the entire process of preparing, showing, and closing. She is immensely helpful, personable, and knowledgable. Michelle is the best!"
- Kirk Schneemann
"Michelle was very successful in helping us sell our home this spring. From our first meeting, it was clear that she is committed, honest, and passionate in her work. She hired a wonderful photographer, wrote a great description of our home, and gave excellent advice for staging and organizing things for walk-throughs. After listing, she negotiated with two bidders to get us the best possible deal. When an issue arose with the contractors inspection, she worked very hard to try to keep our sale. When the deal fell through, she gracefully shifted gears, made calls to previously interested parties, and we had buyers within hours of relisting. Michelle is also an excellent communicator, and we cannot recommend her enough as an agent!"
- Sam Fink
"Michelle created a wonderful home hunting experience for my husband and I. We were relatively new to the Ann Arbor area and Michelle really helped educate us along the way. We felt better prepared to buy a home with her help and wealth of information! With Michelle's help, we found a wonderful home that exceeded our expectations within our budget in an amazing neighborhood. She was willing and able to answer our many questions. Michelle was flexible with meeting us when it worked best for us and her communication was prompt! We are thankful we had the opportunity to work with Michelle as our realtor, and would highly recommend her to you! Thanks Michelle for helping us find our home!"
- Laura Schumacher
Michelle was great in helping us fuind our new home. We were new to the area and she spent many hours showing us homes and neighborhoods. When we found the home we wanted, she made it happen. The owners were supposed to have an open house the next day, butg we got our offer in late Friday evening and they accepted. Eight months later we called Michelle when our home warranty company was giving us trouble and she immediately made some phone calls and helped us out. We were very thankful to work with Michelle.

"We couldn't be happier in our dream home and we have you to thank! We loved working with you and would recommend you to anyone!"
