My husband Allan and I wanted to move to SCLH from Lake Wildwood and we were given Michelle's name from Allan's cousin.....boy, am I glad we called her! It took several months for us to finalize the sale of our home in LWW and quite a few more months to find a home in Lincoln that we really enjoyed. Throughout the entire process, Michelle was patient, professional and encouraging. Her knowledge of the area is encyclopedic, and she has lists of recommended painters, electricians, general contractors, etc., etc. Every question was answered promptly and courteously, and she carefully laid out every step that needed to be followed to "seal the deal". I can not recommend her highly enough! Allan & Merilee
