    My Client Testimonials

    Michelle Hurckes has the patience of a Saint! She not only sold my farm but assisted me in the purchase of my new home. In my eyes they do not come more knowledgeable than Michelle. I have and will continue to recommend Michelle Hurckes to others. ~ Traci Cain, Beecher IL
    Michelle Hurckes is very knowledgeable of all the aspects of the local real estate market. ~ Robert Van Baren, 5648 W 154th Court, Lowell, IN 46356
    Michelle Hurckes was the PERFECT match for us. We live out of state and were searching for a home purchase to rent to our daughter and her two girls. She was very attentive to our wishes and very honest in her appraisals of the homes that were for sale and constantly kept in mind the safety, space and pricing that were our main concerns. Above all, she communicated and connected with our adult daughter in a very personal way...... honestly, empathetically and with great compassion for her desires and wishes, as well. She treated her like family and we are forever grateful. Michelle made sure that all the documents needed were promptly delivered and she was in constant contact with us regarding the entire process. There were no delays and she was able to explain all the things in the documents that I didn't understand. She is so very personable and it was a joy to work with her. She took the stress completely out of our home buying process. I wish there was a button above for 'Over and beyond Excellent' because that would have been boldly chosen. Michelle will be the agent of choice for our other family members that live in her area. Should we hear that someone in her area is looking to purchase a home, she would quickly pop into my mind. Definitely, no second guessing, Michelle is a shining star for your company. :) ~ Elizabeth Schuster, Florida Resident
    A very pleasant and positive experience using Michelle Hurkes in selling our property. Thank you. ~ John Diedam, Bradenton, FL
    Michelle Hurckes is an outstanding Real Estate Agent! She is friendly, trustworthy, and professional in all her transactions. Since I was an out-of-state seller and could not be present always, Michelle took it upon herself to ensure the house was set up for viewing and sales in an outstanding manner. She made valuable recommendations that we appreciated and kept on top of any issues that came up, such as local village inspection requirements. Michelle kept in constant communication with me and my lawyer. She handled issues that came up and was always helpful in processing the house through the selling process. She handled issues to get the house "in order" to sell and took care of some issues for me after advising me what was needed. I have recommended Michelle Hurckes to one of my relatives that is preparing their home for sale. I sold a home in Virginia in 2019 and I wish Michelle could have handled that transaction!. If you are contemplating buying or selling a home, I highly recommend Michelle Hurckes to handle the transaction. You will be extremely happy ! ~ Frank Filipkowski, Arizona
    I was extremely happy with how quickly my house was put on the market and sold. We had over 25 showings in the first weekend and multiple offers. Michelle priced my house right for the market and truly knew her "stuff" when it came to negotiating the sale and the entire process. I would very confidently and proudly refer her to others for home or property sales. ~ Jim Presnak

    Michelle and Laura did a fantastic job! Highly recommended! ~ Wayne Swart Kouts, IN
    Michelle and Laura are the best! They sold our house and helped us purchase our new house as if we were their family. They both took the time to explain every question or situation we came across.. making sure we were comfortable with the decisions that were made. We could not have asked for better Agents/Brokers... Both are very professional, fast on their feet to respond and honest! Their experience, thoughtfulness, and being personal makes them both the BEST! When we purchased our new home Michelle took the time to develop a punch list, which we went thru, and she followed up on each and every detail. She was very thorough up until the minute we signed the contract. Michelle and Laura truly enjoy what they do... helping people sell and purchase the home of their dreams! ~ Jerry and Candi Reiling/Cedar Lake IN
    From the first time Michelle walked into our home with her partner Laura she was friendly and courteous. She was truthful and always upbeat. When our house landed a contract she was quick to set up showings to find us our dream house. She spent 8 hours listening to not only what my husband and I were looking for but also took into consideration what our children were looking for as we went from house to house. It was a family affair and she was with us every step of the way. If there became a bump or roadblock she was quick to jump in and fix what was needed to be done. Michelle thank you for you honesty, thoughtfulness, knowledge, fairness, and always listening. It was a pleasure to work with you. ~ The Haemkers
    Michelle Hurckes was AWESOME!!! She did not pressure us at any time.

We had a viable contract within just a week of listing! ~ Jessie ackerson, Crown Point, IN

    Michelle and Laura never failed to go above and beyond! Selecting this team was easy as they were able to answer every question and provide detailed data to support their findings. Michelle worked tirelessly to get us into our home before our anticipated close date! She ensured our offer was reasonable and considered other things to request that we had not previously considered. When I met Michelle I instantly felt that she and Laura were there to help not to make a commission. This team understood our "wants" and our "needs." They never tried to make us go outside of our comfort level or budget. They have become friends and even my children love to interact with them. You know they say if your dogs and kids like a person then you can trust them...and both our dogs and our kids LOVE Ms. Michelle! ~ Layne & George Platopoulos, St. John, IN
