For anyone considering buying a property in the Santa Cruz area, I would highly recommend using Michele as your realtor. In 2019 I worked with Michele to negotiate the purchase a house in Aptos. As I am currently living in Europe, the entire process was done via telephone and Email. Michele was incredibly helping in guiding me thru the complicated process and insuring that everything went smoothly.

I have worked with a few realtors over the years and Michele is hands down the best I've ever worked with! Michele was always quick to respond to emails and phone calls. I also, very much, appreciated her honesty. I never felt like she sugar-coated or danced around any issues. If you are looking for a realtor I highly recommend calling Michele....you will not be disappointed.

I have bought/sold 4 house through my 20+ years in Santa Cruz. Michele was my listing agent for my last Santa Cruz home in 2019, several years after she served as my agent for the original purchase.
Michele is a stellar agent. Most recently she served as the listing agent for my house in Santa Cruz. She aggressively marketed our home with rigorous buyer research/positioning, staging, remodel coaching .....and of course lots of glossy collateral with placement in all real estate platforms and services.
But the greatest value she brings to the table, the one factor that truly differentiates a superstar agent is Michele's ability drive DEMAND through her vast network of top-shelf agents. Even before the first open house, and even the first brokers tour, we had lots of local agents trying to get in for an early look.
If you want to sell your house, you need to first sell the (buyer's) agents and Michele delivers like no other agent in that regard.
Additionally, Michele keeps escrow moving along. We had more than a few bureaucratic bumps in the road -- Solar title xfer, flaky loan officer-- that threatened our close date. But Michele drove resolution of these, again, with her strong RELATIONSHIPS with the selling agent and escrow officers.
I highly recommend Michele Replogle for you next home purchase or sale.

The care you give your clients is amazing and abundant without being intrusive. My years was wrapped with so many kindnesses beyond the wonderful, professional handling of my sale and then my purchase. You are amazing!!!

Michelle did a fantastic job helping our family purchase a home in Pleasure Point. She made the negotiation go smoothly and her great working relationship with the seller’s agent was a big plus. She suggested some highly skilled inspectors to perform pre-purchase reports and perform repairs after closing. We highly recommend Michelle!

I found Michele online when I was lost and confused looking for a realtor. I messaged a few realtors and Michele was one of the first to reach back out to me , and what I appreciate at that time was that I knew it was a person reaching back out to me and not an auto response to try to gather more information. Michele worked with me and my family through buying a house, and selling our apartment, and I can honestly say we had a very strange situation at hands and not the easiest group of people to work with. It was so easy to work and communicate with Michele, she is very honest and down to earth about the market. And I appreciate all the time, effort and hard work she put in for me and my family.

Michele is friendly, knowledgeable about the area, and very responsive. She got to know my needs and showed me listings that were appropriate for my situation. She also accommodated my work schedule and was a strong advocate for me as a client. I recommend Michele without reservation.

Michele went the extra mile for us to make sure our experience of purchasing a home in the Santa Cruz upper west side was stress free and easy. She was accessible, highly responsive over text, phone and email as well as being very detail oriented. She managed a number of the inspections for us and provided very honest and candid feedback about the home we were purchasing. She went the extra mile and helped us obtain information about Santa Cruz City Parks & Recreation for signing up our kids for summer activities. My wife and I have complete confidence and trust in Michele and would not hesitate to recommend her services in the future.

Michele is one of the best realtors on the central coast. Ten years ago she helped us buy a house. Recently she has helped me sell that house and buy a small one. Through all the transactions, Michele has been on top of all the details, making each transaction run smoothly. I highly recommend Michele - she is the best!

Michele excels as a real estate professional because she knows the Santa Cruz market extremely well. More importantly, she takes the time to know her clients. Michele helped me walk through the difficult process of selling a home I had owned for many years. She helped by setting realistic expectations about the market, and by making herself available whenever I had questions. I always felt secure knowing that I had her expert guidance throughout the entire process.I am grateful for her guidance; you will be too. Thanks Michele!

Michelle met with me to establish a connection and understand who I am and what my goals were. She utilized her experience in real estate to market the property realistically for a sale that moved swiftly. Afterward she helped me find a new home.

Michele helped us buy a wonderful home in Santa Cruz. She knows the area incredibly well and did a lot of advance sleuthing, given that we were from out of town. She didn't try to do a sales job, but let us find what we wanted in our own time. It was also great how knowledgeable she is about older houses, foundations, flood risks, and other issues to look for when buying a home. It's the first time I had a realtor who went that deep! She's a great person, too!

I bought and sold my property with Michele. Her expertise as an agent and her knowledge of the Santa Cruz real estate is so valuable. One important piece of information she gave me is to review the HOA reserve when buying a condo. I know of someone who lost their condo due to a low reserve. This low reserve and need for roof repairs resulted in their monthly HOA fee tripling and some homeowners forced to sell their property. Not only is Michele my agent of choice, she also my friend and she looked out for me, my best interest. When I located to Florida I asked if she would come with me and help me buy a home here. I recommend her highly and have recommended her to friends in the Bay Area.

Michelle was terrific to work with to buy a 3-unit rental property. She was very knowledgable about rental investments and was able to give us advice about what work she would recommend doing on the property before renting it out, which helped us figure in the cost of those things, and make an offer that worked for us. And throughout the negotiation and closing process she did just the right amount of nudging, without stressing us out. I would absolutely recommend her as an agent.

Michele recently helped us purchase our first home in Santa Cruz and she was great to work with. Her knowledge of the area, gentle honesty, and rapid communication were some highlights for us while working with her.
Michele happened to have a planned vacation when we decided to put in an offer on the house. During her vacation she kept in touch, and introduced us to her colleague who took over the day to day responsibilities. This left us feeling like we were in good hands and weren't being neglected, it was wonderful. Not to mention her colleague was also top notch.
We would definitely recommend Michele to friends and family. She guided us through this new and stressful process with ease. Thanks Michele!

As first time home buyers, we felt especially comfortable working with Michele because at no point did we ever feel pressured into anything and she was able to connect us with a wide team of professionals including lenders, inspectors and flooring experts. A positive experience with all of her recommendations. She was extremely responsive whenever we had questions or wanted to see a new property. She guided us in determining whether a property was right for us not only now, but in the longterm: structural considerations, large-expense risks as well as whether a property would be easy or difficult to sell later. Her website was also very helpful and sent us alerts if a new property matching our wish-list became available or its price had changed. We felt that she had our best interests in mind the whole way! Two thumbs up from both of us!

Michelle helped us understand every step in the process along the way. She’s very proactive and responds to phone calls text messages and emails promptly. Not only is Michelle extremely professional but she’s extremely friendly and made us feel comfortable every time on every occasion throughout the process! If we ever get an opportunity to purchase a home in Santa Cruz County we will use Michelle without a doubt as our agent again!

Michele is awesome! She is personable, professional, and efficient. She was our listing agent for our house in the Santa Cruz Mountains. She knows the market well and advertised our house effectively. Thanks to her, our house sold quickly. She is an expert in her field and we highly recommend her!
- Melissa O.
Michele is the calm in the storm. We had lived in our home for many years and wanted and needed to downsize. She was always very supportive and gave good advice as she realized this was also emotional for us. She is very knowledgable and we respected her advice. We highly recommend her.

You know how some realtors are pushy and overly aggressive, I would not describe Michelle with those words. This year 2018 she helped our family with the purchase of a new home and the sale of the old. Representing us on both ends. She listened to our ideas, needs, concerns and general nonsense. When asked she answered, found solutions, offered insight and advice. We were always in the loop with text messages and emails. And let me be the first to say we were tough clients. Would I refer friends and family, without hesitation. Would I use her services again, in a heartbeat. How would I described our realtor Michelle - here to help you reach your ultimate goal whether buying or selling.

We were taken with our new place from the moment we saw it on Zillow. Michele was wonderful in terms of orienting us to various neighborhoods, meeting us for showings, and then expertly taking us through the offer, negotiation, and close. Thanks to her, it was all pretty effortless! Thanks, Michele!

Michele was awesome and super helpful in assisting me with my first home purchase in Santa Cruz. I would highly recommend her for her local knowledge, expertise in the market of Santa Cruz, and for her down-to-earth approach. Thanks Michele!
