Michelle E. Koury

Broker

I was born and raised in Portland. My background in Real Estate is truly life-long. At the age of 14, I began working for title and escrow companies, which I did all the way through high school and college at Oregon State University. I was trained as an agent by my father, who was a well-respected Broker for almost 50 years and recently retired. I have been a top-producing Broker for 20 years, am a diamond-platinum member of the Portland Metropolitan Associations "Masters Circle" and a yearly winner of the "Five Star Service Award" (given to the top 7% of agents based on client satisfaction). I pride myself on providing a high level of customer service, knowledge and integrity. Also, clients say that working with me is fun!

I work with a variety of buyers and sellers whose needs are as diverse as the homes they buy and sell. I'd love to help you.

Things I love: Ozzie, my fuzzy 11 pound dog, long socks, converse tennis-shoes, travel, good food, great friends, anything that involves music and laughing.

Testimonials

"I've now purchased my third house with the help of Michelle and her team. This last one proved to be the most challenging as I was looking at a time when inventory was low and multiple offers over asking winning the day. Michelle encouraged me to keep looking even after I had to make the move to a rental...and she was right! The stars aligned and I was able to find a house in a great neighborhood. Michelle and her team were professional, encouraging, and assisted me every step of the way. I would highly recommend Michelle for anyone looking to buy or sell their house."

"Dear Michelle,

Thank you for all that you have done throughout the process. I especially appreciate your kindness to Beth while she is out in Portland for the closing without me. That is really above and beyond! I certainly wish I could be there but it makes me feel good to know that Beth had help from professionals like you and Dan. I look forward to the next steps in selling our condo!"

- Charlie

"I have been reflecting on our work together. You guys have been super helpful. You really set me up for a quick move in and adjustment by asking for the appliances. That's such a great thing. Plus the plants, good ask! The offer was prefect, especially considering the appraisal!!!
On and on I could go but, long story short, thanks this is so awesome!!! You guys rock!!"

"I have had the sincere pleasure of working with Michelle Koury since 2009 on 3 separate transactions and in two VERY different real estate environments.

In 2009, the real estate market was crashing and I was a single mom on a tight budget, hoping to buy a home in SW Portland - my priority was a safe neighborhood with good schools. I wasn't sure it was possible. Michelle helped me with the purchase of a sweet, 2 bedroom bungalow in Maplewood, which at the time was a sleepy, quiet little corner of Portland with a wonderful elementary school that anchored the community. I was overwhelmed by the process, but with her help, she made my dream a reality. I remember the first night I moved in to my new house, alone and surrounded my boxes, I noticed that the only water coming out of the shower was scalding hot. Not knowing whom to call or how to fix it, I called Michelle in desperation- she came right over with a wrench and fixed whatever valve was set incorrectly. I was so grateful and it's an example of going above and beyond for her customers.

Michelle helped me sell that same little house in the summer of 2015 when the market was HOT and Maplewood was booming with new construction - Michelle knew the market backwards and forwards, priced my house competitively, had a killer instinct on how to get it staged just perfectly to sell... and sure enough! We were able to sell it significantly above asking in record time.

I am now married with 2 step children, and Michelle helped my husband and I buy a house in SW that is absolutely perfect for our blended family of 5 (plus one dog and a cat)! She offered expert advice every step of the way, was so responsive to our questions and needs - last minute questions and urgent requests to look at properties (so critical in this crazy real estate market) and helped make the process go smoothly from beginning to end. She was there when we surprised our 3 kids and showed them our new house for the first time! Michelle is my trusted advisor and I am so thankful for her expertise and friendship."

"My daughter, a Portland resident, wanted to purchase her first home in the Portland area. I was willing to help provide financial support, but living on the East Coast made it difficult for me to be in the area and to help with many important decisions. So instead, I needed to act remotely as a "virtual" support. Additionally, buying in the current hot real estate market demanded quick decision-making and action on our parts as well as that of Michelle and her team. From day one, Michelle was available to walk us through the home-buying process and she always kept me in the loop through frequent email and phone communication. Thanks to Michelle and her team, my daughter is now a proud first time home buyer and loves her new house.

Thank you Michelle!"

Michelle and Kelsey make a phenomenal real estate team. We recently bought and sold with them and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an agent. We bought our new house for under asking price and sold the old house for well over!  Michelle's service included staging and recommendations for the sale of my house and I can't believe how well it paid off.  Michelle and Kelsey were always available for house showings or questions and accommodated our busy schedules. They communicated with us every step of the process. Michelle has many years of real estate experience and it certainly shows.  She is professional, attentive and caring through the stressful processes of buying and selling a house.  She has her finger on the pulse of the Portland market and shares her advice and gut instincts with you while also giving you autonomy to make decisions that are right for you. Thanks to Michelle I am now in the home of my dreams!
