    We greatly appreciate everything Michele did for us during this new adventure. Even after closing, she has kept in touch to see how things are going. It was great to work with Michele. We can¿t thank her enough for her patience and willingness to answer any questions we had along the way. We highly recommend her! ~ Breanna D.-Syracuse
    A neighbor had previously worked with Michele. We had no doubts after meeting her. I felt an immediate connection of trust. She didn't tell us what we wanted to hear to get the listing. She told us what would get the house sold in the shortest amount of time. We had some cleanup and fixes to do, so we set up a date 3 weeks in the future. Michele checked in every few days to see what roadblocks, if any she might help with. Listing day came and we took our cats off to hotel to give buyer agents and their clients free rein. We chose not to hear about offers until they were presented on Monday. We had nine offers, one from a buyer Michele had brought thru. Michele had everything entered on an Excel spreadsheet, so comparisons were easy Our selection happened to be the buyer Michele brought in. What a kind and understanding man. The time from accepting offer to close went very fast. Michele kept us informed the whole way and even offered to come over to help us pack. We have heard from Michele a couple of times since. The importance of this partnership was the absolute certainty that we were treated equally to the buyers. I would recommend Michele anytime. ~ Barbara Paulin Goshen, IN
    We had difficulties during our negotiations once our offer was accepted, as well as massive road blocks during appraisal, Michelle really fought for us and made sure that we were not being taken advantage of as well as putting in extra work on behalf of the listing agent to ensure our appraisal was accurate. We wish we could buy more houses from Michelle, we have been giving her name to every person we can. ~ Phillip & Dana Davila Granger, IN
    Michelle was a consummate professional. She guided me through the house search with proficiency and efficiency. I greatly appreciated her hearing and understanding my needs and being patient as we searched for that perfect match. I¿ve since recommended Michelle to two others, simply because of her level of detail and care. She was fantastic! ~ Isacc Hernandez
    Working long distance with this home purchase was easier with Michele! ~ Rebecca Hernandez

    Michele is a very outstanding person to be around and always encouraged us that she had everything under control when we were stressing. She is very straight forward and uplifting spirit. She listened to all of the needs we needed and followed through with the plans and details of the process. She was working with us around the clock an that ensured us she was right for the job. I hope she helps more people in the future she is one amazing realtor you can¿t find anywhere else ~ Josh Phillips, Indiana
    One of the things that stood out for me about Michele is that she¿s very friendly and welcoming. She explained to first time homeowners how complex, and how patient we would have to be. Her words were ¿I won¿t give up if you won¿t.¿ To me that¿s when I knew she was the best agent for us. ~ Darius Hunt, Ivy Hubbard, Da¿vid Hunt, Mishawaka
    Very happy with everything. ~ Johnny maness osceola
    I had already gone through 3 agents that were difficult to get ahold of & set up showings with. I was beyond frustrated - called the office and asked the receptionist if there were any agents who returned calls and like showing houses - Michele answered & it seriously turned out to be my lucky day. I wouldn't have a house if it weren't for Michele. I was probably a gigantic pain, but she was totally calm and cool thru the whole process - answered ALL of my questions, sometimes repeatedly, talked me off the proverbial ledge on more than one occasion. I am absolutely certain if I had wound up with a different realtor, I would've ended up walking away and renting a crummy apartment. She's very knowledgeable about houses and their problems and what needs to be done to address them, the local scene, every step of the process from offer to closing. You seriously couldn't ask for a better realtor. ~ Cheryl Comeau, Elkhart
    Michele was a great realtor for us. Knowledgeable and friendly.Quick to answer our questions and respond immediately . ~ Michele and David Runge
    She was great and a pleasure to work with. She was on top of everything from the beginning and even took time out to get this done when she was out of town¿.she was fantastic and would definitely suggest that anyone work with her to get a house ~ Adrienne Hernandez, Elkhart
    She made my experience nice and smooth. She had great communication. I would definitely recommend her in the future! ~ Heather W. Elkhart, In
    Wonderful realtor. Very responsive, and educational. Every question we ever had was always answered in a timely manner. If we were to sell a house again, we would hire Michele Burkheimer again. ~ Austin Schlabach, Middlebury
    Michele is one of the most knowledgeable, friendly and professional I have had the pleasure to work with in purchasing our home. We have purchased and sold multiple properties in the state we came from and hands down Michele outshines their service 10 Fold! We would, and will, recommend her to everyone who may need her services! Thank you Michele for always making our home purchasing experience less stressful and a smooth experience! ~ Suzi & Joey Schmitt
    Michele is wonderful! We had a rather difficult closing experience but Michele handled it all with such grace. We would thank her a million times over if we could. We will recommend Michele to anybody that we know who will be looking in the future and anybody that asks. ~ Trace and Rain Harrison, Elkhart
    Worked very well to find our home. ~ Monica Roger Lambright Cromwell
    This was by far the best experience we have had selling a house. The process was easy and Michele's knowledge and expertise made the sale of our home go smoothly and stress-free! She made the process simple and took care of everything in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Michele to my friends and family. ~ John & Heather Jones
    Michelle provided us everything we needed and then some. She not only went the extra mile she went the extra five miles. We live out of the area and her insight and extra work were not only appreciated but necessary and she came through. ~ Kevin and Suzanne Ver Hoeven, Fulton

    Enjoyed the experience and knowledge that she brought to the selling of our home. ~ Celia & Dave Latislaw- Goshen
    We had previously worked with another Agent and considered a different Broker. We hadn't been having luck with our previous team when I came across Michele Burkheimer. I loved everything I read about Michele and the work she does to help people find the best home for their families. Michele didn't fall short of incredible when it came to helping us find our home! Michele found homes that weren't even on the market yet, always met us at interested properties the same day as requested to view and did not once lose hope or give up on finding a home with every single thing we asked for! We will continue to recommend and come back to Michele Burkheimer and Centery 21 affiliated for all of our future home purchases and sales! ~ Tiffany Boone Goshen Indiana
    Too much to say about Michele Burkheimer. She dedicated a lot her time and many mile to help me and my family find our first house but instead she found our forever home. We will forever be greatful ~ Jordan & Stevi Hilton, kokomo
    We knew Michele would be straight forward and that we could trust her guidance through the process. Her bringing in a photographer gave us an amazing advantage when listing the property. We had an extremely good turn out of buyers from the start. I valued her advice of what to work on to prepare for the sale and also what we should not spend money and time on. ~ Tiffany, Elkhart
    I couldnt be more satisfied, she knew exactly what we wanted, put in the extra work to send letters and found our forever home for us. She was easily accessible even at late hours when we had questions, was extremely professional even after our bank dropped the ball on starting our loan process. ~ Adam Morningstar Elkhart
