"Michelle is a great agent. She makes herself available day and night to offer her professional advice and her continued success within the industry is a testament to the work ethic that she is known for. She has surrounded herself with a great team that provide real estate service that is unmatched in the province."

"We are from Dauphin Manitoba After our property taxes on our home doubled and the crime rate was so bad I had put alarms on everything so we decided to leave
We had watched the listings in Newfoundland for about a year looking for an ocean view in a low tax zone.
We found our ocean view in multiple listings in Lower Island Cove.
My wife had already contacted Lifestyle Realty (now Homelife Lifestyle Real Estate) on some other properties that didn't work out for a number of reasons but Jennifer & Irene didn't give up.
We took the ladies advise on how to write up the offer pending the sale of our home in Manitoba and how much to offer.
When our offer was accepted Jennifer recommended an inspector who did a very thorough inspection for a reasonable price.
Our sale went through in Manitoba and with Jennifer and Irene's help and about 1,000 calls and e-mails we bought our new home.
We left Manitoba with a trailer full of some of our things we couldn't bear to part with to travel the 3600 miles to Newfoundland.
We were driving through Quebec when Igor hit our new home. Hydro was out and phones out We had no way of knowing if we still had a house.
Jennifer and Irene came to our rescue and somehow found out our home survived.
When we got here the ladies weren't done yet, they recommended motels, lawyers and furniture stores. The only thing they didn't do was carry boxes.
As difficult and scary as it was to move half way across Canada it would have been a lot harder without Jennifer and Irene.
If we ever move again Lifestyle will be our first call!"
"Working with our agent Rose (O'Brien) was like working with a friend. She was always there to give advice and guidance, while allowing us the freedom to make our own decisions. She helped us sell our first home and buy our current home. We would definitely work with Rose again."

Thank-you for selling Maple Street as quick and easy as you did. I really appreciate it. Your company will prosper with your professionalism and friendliness & thanksfor the basket! Nice touch!"
I just wanted to send a quick not to thank you both for everything you did with respect to my house. I realize it's your job, but I had a house built before that wasmanaged by a realtor and it was much less painful this time around!!! And it's good that it was given the fact that I wasn't around.... I'll be sure to pass my feedback onto any friends, family, colleagues who are house hunting. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!"
"This was our first time selling and buying a house. Rose was a professional and helped us through this journey. She answered all of our questions, at any time of night or day and she was very patient and never gave up searching for what we were looking for in a Home. Without Rose's help we would not be happy home owners today, and we would not have wanted anyone else on our dream home journey.
Thank you again Rose (O'Brien)"

I wanted to send you an email to say thanks for the great videos of the house on Jonesberry. What a great way to see the house without being in the province. We
appreciate the effort you have put in for us and I am confident that when the time comes for us to buy you will be able to help us with finding the right home.
Dwayne and Gillian Greeley
We wanted to thank you for the great job you did in selling our home and finding us the perfect home for our family. You certainly went above and beyond your job.
Especially when our home was sold, we never had much time to find one, but you came through for us. I will certainly recommend you to any of my friends, family and co-workers. Your not just a great agent, but we also consider you as a friend. We look forward to working with you in the future.
Mary and David Ivey
We wanted to thank you for the excellent service you provided as our selling agent for our home and the purchase agent for our new house. We were impressed by the number of different strategies you used to help market our house. We were very happy to see the diversity of outlets in which you placed ads for our home. We are convinced that the marketing was a key factor in generating interest and selling our home. This is something that every seller should look into before selecting a Realtor, and is often overlooked.
We were not the easiest of clients finding it difficult to accept an offer because many came from speculators seeking an unfair bargain. You were supportive of our decisions to "gut it out" until the right offer came through. It did come through and the rest of the work was done by you! Your professional handling of the demands of the buyer during the closing process also allowed us to preserve our "peace of mind" and insure that the deal reached a satisfactory conclusion for all parties in the agreed to timeframe.
Throughout the process, we also found great comfort in the communication from you. The weekly status reports that included feedback from the showing agent were very helpful, as were the reports that summarized web hits on our house.
We appreciate the high code of ethics, the expertise and the straight talk that you exhibited throughout the process. Not to be overlooked is the personal touch you gave us - answering all our trivial questions, the countless visits to our home just to check up, and the guidance through the negotiation process in both the buyers and sellers market.
We are happy to recommend you to other potential clients.
Should we ever have need of a true Real Estate professional again, we would without hesitation be seeking your professional services and assistance!

We just wanted to thank you for your patience with us when we were moving back to St.John's. We really didn't know where we wanted to live. We had no specific area in mind, but we did know what we wanted in a house. We were very specific with our wants and needs, and you quickly grasped what we were envisioning as our next home. You gladly showed us any house we requested to see; you suggested a lot of homes that we hadn't been aware of, and you also saw a lot of homes that you knew weren't what we were looking for. Since the real estate market has been booming, it was critical that we had an agent who understood what was going in the market and was familiar with the many subdivisions being developed in the St. John's area.
You are always pleasant and accommodating, and we consider you to be more than just a real estate agent; you are a friend.

"Michelle has been my agent for both purchase and rentals. She has exceptional negotiating skills and always goes the extra mile to get the best deal for her clients"
I honestly don't know a harder worker then my realtor Michelle Mitchum. Most dedicated realtor I know. If your looking to do business your making a mistake if you don't use her. Thanks for working so hard with all your promt responses and more. Professionalizm.

I came to Newfoundland with a suitcase and a short contract with Husky. Ten years later, I had a wife, two vehicles, a home, and a cabin with land and needed to move again. We knew Michelle along with several other real estate persons. We both trusted Michelle to do the best for us and were not disappointed. She
educated us regarding the market, involved us where we wanted in the sales effort, shared strategies for putting the best foot forward. We had to leave
Newfoundland before the sales actually occurred. She worked with our lawyer, bank, and trusted neighbors to complete the sales of the home and cabin. She was part of a great Newfoundland experience and we hope she visits with us in Houston.
Glen and Janet Lochte
We wanted to say thanks for helping us find our perfect dream, family home in NL. Thank you for your honesty. It meant a lot to us that we found a wonderful real estate agent whom we could trust. You helped us to make our dreams come true. We finally feel like we are home again and have a house which we can really call "home".

I hope you're having a nice weekend! I just wanted to thank you so much for all of your help and accommodation in making this process so easy and enjoyable! I really appreciate everything and I couldn't have asked for better, more professional representation. I will get my financing letter as soon as possible for you so we can keep this moving! James and I are so excited and can't wait to call our first house, home! Thank you again, this process has really made us feel at ease and taken care of! Also, thank you Tiffany for all of your help!
Myself and Paul would like to thank you for your professional approach to real estate.
The buying of a first home is always an exciting, confusing and scary process.
You made Kailah and James feel comfortable about that process and made the experience enjoyable.
You are a credit to your profession and we will be happy to refer you to others.
It has been a pleasure for me to know Margie Greene professionally for well over thirty years. I have always been impressed by her dedication to her job, her hard work, her professionalism, and her sense of fair play and ethics.
When I decided to sell my house at St. John's, the first and only realtor that came to mind was Margie.
My faith and trust in Margie was not misplaced, even though I was out of the country for much of the process. Margie handled the business with aplomb! She gave me advice, she helped prevent me from making mistakes that would have cost me money, and she ensured that my interests were forefront and paramount.
I am absolutely pleased with the service that Margie provided. I highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling property. They can be assured of the most professional, ethical and personal service.
