Broker, ABR, CRS
I have been a real estate professional in the Raleigh area since 1998. I know that personal and professional service in both buying and selling a home is the most important part of the real estate process. I have an extensive background in sales, even before my career in real estate. I am an expert in my field as I continually update my real estate knowledge and skills. I earned my ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative) designation in 2000. I earned my Broker’s license in 2003 and I earned my CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) designation in 2005. My range of experience is from first time buyers all the way through the upscale end of the real estate market. I hope to have the opportunity to assist you with one of the most important life decisions of buying or selling your home.
Michelle Conway has been my realtor for over 15 years and 2 purchases. When I purchased my first home, I was around 25 years old, single and no kids and didn’t know anything about purchasing a home. Michelle took me under her wing from that day on. One of my best friends also purchased her first home during the same time I did. Michelle informed both us of each step of the process and connected me with all the right people along the way.
Over the years I have received a card for my birthday and every single major celebrated holiday there is on the calendar from Michelle each containing a sweet message. She is one of the most compassionate people I know. But she also will give you “THE REAL” about how to handle all aspects of the purchase and will answer all questions even when the answers aren’t what you want to hear.
In 2018 Michelle assisted me with the sale of my first home and the purchase of a new townhome. Michelle got an offer on my house while I was on vacation and I signed paperwork on vacation!! During this second search, houses were going so quickly I barely had time to see some of them before they were sold or under contract. We were working against a time lime and I was also in and out of town because my mother was in her final days battling cancer. The day I actually found the townhome I wanted it had been on the market for maybe a couple of hours, we had gone out that morning searching and Michelle immediately got back and found my future home. Michelle has many years of being a realtor and is very familiar with the area and the nuances of buying and selling any property. So I highly recommend her as a realtor because you will never need another one.

Since we have moved to California, Michelle was entrusted to prepare our empty house for sale. Michelle sold my house in one day which was a dream comes true for any home seller. However, this could not have been accomplished without Michelle finding the right and cost effective vendors to prep the house. Instead of hiring a staging company, Michelle volunteered to light stage an empty house for free. I would definitely recommend Michelle to by your realtor.

Michelle was such a great help for my husband and I. I was 6 months pregnant and desperately wanted to find a home, move, and get settled in before our son was born. We told Michelle our preferred area & what we were looking for in a home, and she provided countless options (and was extremely patient with us as we viewed multiple homes). As first time home buyers, Michelle guided us through the entire process…ever ready to answer our countless questions. She helped us find the perfect starter home for our family! We will definitely use Michelle when we’re ready to purchase our next home.
Michelle asked what I wanted and worked from that, some realtors just did a lot of talking but with no information. Michelle gave me the facts for me to decide what I needed and was very aggressive and pushed it thru.

– Erin Poyner
I would highly recommend Michelle! She was very knowledgeable and that was great because this was my first home. She was very patient and wasn’t pushy at all. I knew exactly what I wanted and didn’t want and Michelle respected my request without judging. I will definitely turn to her when I purchase my next home.

Michelle is an experienced agent who works hard throughout the entire buying and selling process. I have sold and bought a home with Michelle. She is very knowledgeable and I would highly recommend her.
– T. Holley
I have had the privilege of working with Michelle as both a buyer and a seller and I would highly recommend her! She knows the market very well and she makes sure to understand her clients motivations and needs so she can provide her best advice and insight. In each case I can honestly say I’ve gotten a better deal than I thought I’d be able to get.

Michelle was exceptional throughout our buying experience. We decided on a foreclosure for our purchase and Michelle stayed on top of everything we needed. She guided us through the whole process of dealing with the banks, the inspections and right up to closing. She not only led us through the difficult challenges of dealing with a foreclosure, she also helped us with the “little” things such as electricity, water, trash, and schools. She followed up with us after we moved in and even sends us Christmas and birthday cards! You cannot ask for a better all around real estate agent.

Michelle helped us with the search and purchase of our new home in North Raleigh. She was excellent with communication as well as great at negotiating with the sellers. She did such a superb job with the purchase of our home that we recommended her to a close friend that was having trouble selling his home with another agent, she came on board and got the job done and he was extremely satisfied in the end. I continue to refer her to all my friends and colleagues.

I have had two transactions with Michelle and I have been impressed. I have high expectations for professionals and she was able to exceed those expectations. She was professional and had good follow through skills. She is also resourceful and creative in her negotiating. I have been involved with other Realtors and have not always been impressed with their experience or skill level. Michelle stands apart.
– Paul Muntjan
Michelle was with me the whole time i was looking for a home for myself…it took me a while to finally be able to pursue my dream because of divorce issues…but she helped me find my dream home and here I am. She is purely professional and has a way of remembering every one of her clients, no matter how much time goes by. She stays in touch even after the sale…she knows most everything about any issues that come up in buying or selling a home. Bottom line, you can always rely on her 100%. it’s been almost 3 years since i met Michelle, and she still drops me a line once in a while. I was very lucky to find her!
– M. Mann
What a Professional! Michelle stayed on top of everything and kept me informed all along the way. I had listed with a previous agent and got very little action. Once I switched to Michelle, I not only got the action but got the house sold in no time- and it was all hassle-free! This was by far the easiest buy/sell home transaction I have been involved in. Will ONLY use Michelle in the future. Should you use her services you will not be disappointed.
– D. Boyette
Michelle did a wonderful job with each of our many purchases and sales of our different homes in the Raleigh area. Thank you so very much for your competent and well beyond the necessary real estate services. You have been and will continue to be a good friend.

Michelle helped us buy our home; a beautiful home, perfect for our family. She came highly recommended by a work colleague, she’d helped them buy their home as well. From the first day I spoke with Michelle it’s been great! The process was terrific from start to finish, it was our first time, so naturally, we needed a lot of guidance, which we most certainly got from Michelle all through the process.Michelle has come to be just like family, we really can’t say enough good things about her. She is so intelligent, well-informed, intuitive, personable, trustworthy, endlessly patient, and tremendously generous in so many ways. We could not be more pleased with the way the whole home buying process went and we HIGHLY recommend Michelle Conway without any reservations whatsoever.

Michelle is a hardworking experienced real estate agent who cares about her clients. She is a fantastic negotiator who kept us informed of every step in the sale of our home. We would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.
– Don and Betty Hansen
Michelle was great and very patient! I was in the market for “a deal” – of course – so we went through several rounds of offers, counter-offers, acceptance, inspections and fall throughs before finding the right home for me. She had a lot of knowledge as to the particulars of short sales and lender-owned properties and was able to steer me right with regard to the details of the offer to purchase contract. I’d use Michelle again in a heartbeat

I met with Michelle after she was recommended to me by another realtor, since I do not live in the area. I did not know who to use. I only had to go down for this meeting and for closing about one month later. She had a list of quality subcontractors that were able to do everything necessary to get it ready for listing. They were professional, fast, and very reasonable. She walked through the house making notes, afterwards she recommended every correction she thought was necessary to get it ready to list. She did not call with any additional repairs, just keep in contact with me to keep me abreast of the repairs. When another realtor brought a buyer she gave me her opinion then emphasized that it was my decision and she would submit any counter offer I wanted. I cannot tell you how great it was to have someone with such great knowledge, honesty and integrity to work with. Anyone looking to sell or buy in her market should definitely work with her.
– M. Templeton
I contacted Michelle for help with selling my home. I have to admit I was very surprised to find an agent that honestly cared about not only the selling of my house but cared about me as a person. Michelle is very professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend hiring her if you were looking to buy or sell a home.
– Marilyn Edwards
Michelle Conway, went above and beyond to find the perfect house and community for my family. I Highly recommend her as one of the most sincere, hardworking real estate agents in our area. She’s very personable and works hard to meet the needs of her clients.

My experience with Michelle began in 2004. I was living in an apartment and she offered me an opportunity to buy verse renting. Michelle is an “AMAZING” Realtor. She is very passionate about work. Very professional, knowledgeable, responsible, and negotiates the best for her clients. I have found her to be reliable, committed, honest and very respectful even under pressure. She has been with me through the buying and selling of 2 homes. Along with negotiating a short sale at my request. I introduce her as my realtor and friend. I highly, highly recommend Michelle to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. Michelle is an ‘outstanding” Realtor and Friend. Each experience took less than six months.
She stayed with me through it all. I recommend Michelle to anyone who is looking for a professional, trustworthy, and honest realtor.
