It Doesn’t Matter How Big or Small the Sale

Michelle's Work Ethic Is Second To None

Michelle helped me navigate the sale of my dad's house after he passed away. I knew very little about this process and Michelle helped me through every step. She is a straight shooter and got right to the point with me. Honestly, I thought I was going to have to put a lot of money into the home to get it ready to sell and she advised me that it probably wasn't a good idea and also explained to me why. All we had to do was some cleaning and minor items here and there and that was that. Her photographer took super amazing photos of the house, it listed on a Wednesday, and by Friday we had four offers...two were for cash and were over the asking price!
More important than any of that is the fact that she went above and beyond, in my opinion, to be there for me at every instance when dealing with the HOA, fire department, completing forms, calling people and even being there to meet some of these people when it really wasn't her responsibility to do so. But she knew I was away for work, and she went to bat for me. Michelle even found a mistake that the fire department made with respect to property lines and saved me from having to pay unnecessarily for things that were actually the HOA's responsibility! She also negotiated with the buyer that was asking for repairs that were just a little over the top, and that all worked out just fine.
My point is that I'm almost certain that Michelle has listings that are way more important and lucrative than my situation was, but she treated me like I was a heavy hitter and I really respected her work ethic! I always felt like I was important to her and I really appreciated that. These are qualities that can't be taught, it's just who she is. If you should be so fortunate to have her for an agent, consider yourself very lucky!

Michelle and Her Team are Top Notch

When my wife and I decided we wanted to purchase a home, Michelle Haywood was our first phone call. We were not disappointed in the least. Michelle asked what we were looking for and she was off to the races. Michelle never failed to reassure us when we were outbid for a house, and then our dream home fell out of escrow, she notified us about it, and we were successful with our offer! Michelle and her team are top notch and we recommend Michelle to everyone!

Michelle Exceeded All Our Expectations

We worked with Michelle Haywood on the sale of our house and couldn't be more grateful to her and Team Forss for their diligence, professionalism, and outstanding representation. Michelle exceeded all our expectations and treated us like her own family. After the sale, she again exceeded our expectations when finding our replacement home. It was truly a pleasure working with Michelle. I highly recommend her both as a seller's and a buyer's agent!

Michelle Was Amazing!

Team Forss, especially Michelle was amazing! We initially met her trying to sell one home and, subsequently, she became part of our family. We felt like we knew her forever! We could reach out to her at any moment’s notice, and she would always return very promptly and professionally. She’s a joy to work with and eventually even helped us find a new place after selling the first. I will trust no one else in the future but her to help with our real estate needs. If you get her as your agent, you will not regret it, and would be so lucky!

Michelle Is Amazing To Work With!

Michelle is amazing to work with! She is very talented, diligent, and always looking out for her clients. We have used her for two home transactions and both have been orchestrated masterfully by Michelle and on both the selling and buying side. Michelle is super punctual and responsive which is very well appreciated during a home sale or purchase. We worked with her to recently sell the home that we had purchased with her 3 years prior and Michelle lead the charge to a full price offer in 5 days. Can't beat that! Thank you Michelle!

Michelle Was With Us Every Step Of The Way

Working with Michelle Haywood and Forss Realty was the best decision we made when buying a home! Michelle was with us every step of the way making sure we were comfortable in the process and that we were staying on task to close escrow on time. Michelle’s communication and the marketing tools from Forss Realty are best in class, top notch! I look forward to working with Michelle and the Forss team on our next purchase. Thank you for putting us at ease and making everything smooth!

We'd highly recommend Michelle Haywood!

After interviewing several agents we settled on Michelle and Team Forss and are very happy with that decision. Michelle was extremely responsive and professional throughout, helping set a sales price and coordinating all the moving parts. Our home sold the first weekend on a full price offer, with multiple offers received. Everything went smoothly and we'd highly recommend her and the team behind her at Team Forss!

Michelle Goes Above & Beyond

Michelle is a great agent!!! She worked with my wife and I non stop to get us into our beautiful home. She is very knowledgeable of the current market and the neighborhoods. If we needed to contact her whether it was 7 in the morning or 9 at night she was there to help. We will definitely be referring and using her again in the future.

Michelle Was Absolutely Incredible

Michelle was absolutely incredible!!!  
Unfortunately my mother passed away and this was her home and a trust sale. From my first meeting with Michelle she was extremely professional and knowledgeable on the homes in the area. I had met with a couple other agents that seem to just randomly pull suggested listing prices out of the hat. Michelle sat down with me and went over all the comparable sales in my area and we arrived at a very marketable price.
During the escrow process Michelle was absolutely unbelievable! She responded back almost immediately to any questions I had or situations with the home. Because the home needed a little bit of repairs and I did not live in the area Michelle also helped me with her knowledge of great contractors in the surrounding area. She coordinated literally every contractor and repair that had to be done on the home without me ever leaving the house.  
I work with real estate agents for a living for the past 33 years. Although I am not a realtor I am directly involved in the transaction and have worked with thousands of different realtors on tens of thousands of transactions. That being said I would place Michelle in the top 2% of the best agents I’ve ever worked with…. And that is saying a lot coming from me. If you are considering a realtor definitely consult with Michelle. I can guarantee you will never be disappointed!

Very Knowledgeable and Professional

Working with our agent Michelle Haywood, was a great experience. She's very knowledgeable and professional with a can-do attitude. When negotiating with the sellers we could tell that she had our best interest at heart.  We would recommend Michelle for anyone's real estate needs. Also a shout out to the entire Team Forss Realty Group for their outstanding team work. Thank you Michelle and Team Forss

Michelle is Absolutely Amazing

Michelle is absolutely amazing!! I would recommend her to anyone. My family and I have worked with her on both the buying and selling end. She works so hard for her clients. Michelle is always there to answer questions and make the process as easy as it can be. Whenever you need to get ahold of her for any reason she responds right away. When we have worked with Michelle it feels like you have a full support team every step of the way through both the buying and selling process. It can be intimidating trying to buy or sell but Michelle makes its so easy. By far best against out there in the business.

Michelle is very professional, organized, assertive...

Having Michelle Haywood as our agent was a piece of mind. She had a plan in place and a team to sell our home. From getting it photo ready to holding the open house. Michelle is very professional, organized, assertive, dedicated and always a phone call or text message away. Michelle kept us informed through out the process, and made sure we got the best offer for our house. Robert and I were very great full to have worked with Michelle.

Michelle has been by far the absolute best...

Team Forss is the dream team! Michelle Haywood being the MVP! I've bough and sold a couple houses now and have worked with different realtors. Michelle has been by far the absolute best (and I'm very picky and hard to please!). This time, I was selling. Michelle was timely, professional, organized, easy to reach, kind, and understanding throughout the whole experience. She took the initiative to keep me updated on everything rather than me having to ask for updates.
Our approach and strategy ended up getting my house sold Very quickly and at an Unbelievable Price! She expertly coached me through setting up the house for pictures. She negotiated for me, not just on house price, but also for termite fixes that were identified. I even had a last minute plumbing issue after the sale but before I moved out and Michelle was on top of it, called her plumber and had it taken care of same day!!! I would recommend her to any of my friends and family because I know she takes care of her clients from start to end. I am so extremely grateful to have been paired with Michelle. She truly made a difficult time in my life go so smoothly. Thank You Michelle!!! I couldn't thank you enough.

She was always available to talk ...

Michelle was our agent and we could not have hoped for a better person to help us with the sale of our home. From our initial meeting all the way through close, Michelle demonstrated above and beyond what you would expect from an agent. She used her expertise to accurately recommend our listing price and help us prepare our home for showings. She was always available to talk to us when we had concerns and saw the deal over the finish line. Thanks Michelle!

Michelle Haywood was my phenomenal agent...

Michelle Haywood was my phenomenal agent from Team Forss Realty Group. I found her on Zillow. For our first contact she signed me up for real time listing based on my location, price and home requirements. I enjoy previews on line before ever booking a visit to a property so this worked out perfectly! When I found THE home, she was fantastic working with the other agent to get me in to see it, right away! That was so key in this competitive market I was shopping in. She was also key and very patient and persistent for me in getting me in to the property after the first showing so I could put in my best bid (and rebid). I am sure it was her interaction with the other agent that secured my bid as the winner. I am so grateful! To top it off, she gifted me such a lovely and thoughtful gift after the sale. I can give her a 6 out of 5 stars!

I am so grateful for Michelle...

Our agent Michelle Haywood with Team Forss is excellent! Michelle helped us find and purchase our home! We could not have done it without her. There are so many moving pieces and Michelle stayed on top of everyone and everything! She was knowledgeable, attentive, personable, and patient. She took care of everything we needed her too very quickly and kept the process moving along, closing on time! I am so grateful for Michelle and highly recommend her!!!

I highly recommend Michelle Haywood...

It’s been a pleasure to work with Michelle Haywood. She was knowledgeable about the market. She was prompt in returning my phone calls. Michelle was always communicating the progress of our purchase. I highly recommend Michelle Haywood if your looking for an agent.

Michelle is highly knowledgeable...

We had a great experience working with Michelle Haywood. She is highly knowledgeable about Temecula and surrounding areas and offers exceptional customer service. Her honesty and understanding of the real estate market are unparalleled. We couldn’t have asked for more. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Highly likely to recommend...

I am super happy with my agent, Michelle Haywood. This was my first home purchase and to complicate things we had a 1 month trip planned to start the same day escrow started. Michelle assembled a team that seemed to be experienced at making things easy on the buyer.

Michelle Haywood was the best realtor...

Team Forss was extremely easy to deal with. We think that Michelle Haywood was the best realtor we ever had either on the buy side or sell side. We had fifteen homes in our fifty year marriage and she was by far the best realtor we ever had. I can not compliment her enough for all she did. The sale of our home was not an easy task but she handled the negotiations as a real professional. I would recommend her and Team Forss to anyone that wants a professional team. Thanks for all you did.

Michelle Haywood is an amazing agent...

Michelle Haywood is an amazing agent, who cares about the best interest of her clients, and not just closing a sale. Our particular experience took some creativity and special attention, which she exceeded our expectations. We were first time buyers, and she sat us down to explain the entire process, on her personal time. I've heard stories on how there are many last minute requests of the agent/escrow and lender usually a few days before closing, we had none. Our team is truly something special. I will always recommend Michelle to anyone who is buying a home, she rocks!

Michelle Haywood is AWESOME...

Michelle Haywood is AWESOME! When I was trying to buy a home there was very limited inventory in the area I wanted to live. It was very important to be near Great Oak High School for my children. Add on to that my husband was leaving the country for business and I needed to find a home fast. Michelle diligently searched for homes day and night and the reward to that was finding a home that listed as soon as it posted online! Michelle immediately called the listing agent and secured an appointment for me to see the house. 
As we were leaving the showing, there was actually a line of agents with their clients waiting outside. I told Michelle I wanted it, and she immediately drew up an offer. Not only did Michelle get my offer to the agent immediately, but my wonderful, caring, compassionate realtor sent a cover letter on my behalf, setting me aside from the other offers that were submitted too. Because of Michelle's passion for her work and loyalty to her clients, I was the offer accepted and my family and I have a beautiful home exactly where I wanted it. I will NEVER have any other agent than Michelle Haywood and I recommend her to everyone! 

She's very professional and in short-just awesome...

I would definitely recommend Michelle. She's very professional and in short-just awesome to work with. Michelle was able to help us find a home quickly after the house we were in escrow on became tied up in a lawsuit with the previous owners. She helped us get into a beautiful home that was freshly on the market. We put an offer in the day the home went up for sale, which also had 5 other offers and we ended up getting into the perfect home for our family. Like it was meant to be! Not only did Michelle help make the process so easy, she was very patient with me when I wanted to go back and look at the house numerous times since we were downsizing and planning what items to move to the house and which to sell/take to storage! I loved Michelle's professionalism and warm, friendly manner and I would absolutely recommend her.

Michelle was incredibly patient...

Michelle was very professional and thorough and had great follow through. She went the extra mile for us time and time again, as we were from out of town and we would need her to represent us in one way or another, which she did a great job. Michelle was incredibly patient and was always available even last minute, which happened quite often. We have bought and sold 10 homes in the past 25yrs and of all the agents we have used Michelle was our favorite.
Tracy Kelly

I have nothing but praise for her and her work...

I cannot tell you what a life saver Michelle was when we were looking to buy! Here is our story, just to give you an idea of what we were dealing with: As it happened we had only 45 days to find a house AND close escrow before we had to be out of our old house or sign another years lease. We're getting a VA loan, so 45 days from starting to look to close of escrow does not look very promising. This was during the holiday season too - just to add to the pressure!
We knew exactly what we wanted in a house and the area we wanted to be in. Michelle managed to show us houses before they even hit the market. The house we ended up buying wasn't even going to be ready for close of escrow until 3 weeks past our deadline - BUT she worked it out with the other agent and not only that - we got an amazing deal on the price! During the escrow period things came up ( as I assume they often do), but she took care of every single thing. She knows the area, she is sharp, super likable and personable, and gets the job done. Highly highly recommended!!!! I have nothing but praise for her and her work!

She is highly knowledgeable...
