Testimonials

The following testimonials were written by just some of my happy sellers and buyers. They have all been kind enough to give me permission to show you their correspondence. Their letters and words are very gratifying. It seems that my down-to-earth and honest approach has earned me many friends – I think that’s fantastic!


Michele Cartwright, PREC, found us our dream home when the market was at it’s worst for buyers. It wasn’t an easy task, but she was confident and positive the whole way. We couldn’t have done it without all her hard work!

I was introduced to Michele Cartwright 10+ years ago by a mortgage broker that I had been working with since 2002. Michele has facilitated the purchase of 2 investment properties, our current family home, and now the sale of 1 of the investment properties. Michele has helped us with finding local services for many things such as but not limited to fencing and built in vacuum contractors to Notaries and Lawyers. She is very knowledgeable, professional and always happy to help with everything we have needed. She goes above and beyond in everything she does!

Michele Cartwright has facilitated over a million in real estate deals with us. She knows her stuff! The first property deal we did with her was a town home next to ours. We bought it sight unseen. The place was left in a filthy state filled with garbage. the guy a hoarder { we did not know }and he left everything. Michele went right to work and had a got junk truck & crew there that very afternoon did not leave until the job was done. it was so bad we used snow shovels to clear the place out. I am sure She even arranged pizza for dinner! I can’t imagine having another Realtor ever! She is absolutely the best!

With the Mortgage rules changing in Jan.18 We wanted list this unit in a “pre-reno” state. Michele listened, understood and went to work with a smile. We had a different list price in mind so Michele suggested that we could re-evaluate the listing in 10 days if needed. She brought in an offer in under 2 weeks of when it posted on MLS. It was a low ball offer so we decided to go to our final and countered with that. They came up a bit and She backed us up when we did not counter again and conveyed to the buyer agent our feelings. Later that day they accepted the deal. Seven days later subjects removed! As the unit was not in an updated state she did a lot of back and forth with buyer agent who was trying to get things included as some things needed repairs as noted on PDS. She made sure we were protected as the unit was sold “AS IS” Michele is the best agent I have ever worked with! I have worked with many before meeting her.


Michele was polite and answered texts and phone calls within ten minutes. Found without us even asking to have someone keep an eye on the property as the house is empty. Went to city hall twice for us trying to locate something on the property and advising me what would be best to look after the situation. My dad trusted her explicitly for the selling of the house and the asking price. Having it sold within four days was a blessing for us as my father is 97 and this was very hard and she understood completely and was able to take the time so he understood exactly what was going on. Even coming out to Abbotsford at 9:30 in the evening to close the deal. Michele is just an awesome all round person and never down in the dumps.

I liked everything about her. What stands out the most, in Michele, is her high standard of honesty and care toward her client and their investments.

Cindy Kvazar, Abbotsford


Michele was referred to us by our mortgage broker Brandee McWhinney. We wanted someone experienced and knowledgeable as we are first time home buyers.

“START THE CAR!” Michele has the best approach to home buying: direct and straight to the point. She’s a Pitbull when you need her to be and she always gives it to you straight. She had our best interests in mind and didn’t stop till she found us the home that hit all the asks on our list. We couldn’t have done this process in this crazy market without her. We will definitely be contacting Michele when we look for our next home!

Michele answered all my silly and ridiculous texts with questions about anything from “can we see this place?” to “how do we pay for the water?” And she did it without hesitation and always with a smile.

Dealing with Michele was seamless. If she had others helping her, they did it in the background. We always had Michele directly to speak with.

I will only deal with Michele for my home purchasing needs 🙂

When I was ready to return my home to the market after three months with another company and agent, I interviewed two brokerage companies to try and do a better job of choosing the correct agent. While there was little difference between them in the selling aspect, as to marketing and advertising, Michele Cartwright’s knowledge of Chilliwack and her honest approach were deciding factors.

I felt my needs were extremely important to Michele, and that she would not rest until I was satisfied in all aspects of the sale of my home and purchase of my new home in Chilliwack.

She worked tirelessly to bring buyers in, to negotiate the best price and close the sale quickly and professionally. When I was looking to buy, she freely shared her knowledge of different neighbourhoods in Chilliwack and let me know quickly if I was interested in a property or area that did not fit my requirements. When we found the right place she worked long and hard to get me my new home at the best price.

I would (and have) recommend Michele Cartwright PREC to anyone looking for an agent who listens to your needs, works hard to sell your home for the best price, then works just as hard to find and close on the purchase of your new home.

Michele Cartwright is honest, hard working, diligent and strong minded – all with enough humour to make a difficult job more enjoyable.

Over the course of the sale and purchase, I dealt with several others at HomeLife Benchmark Walnut Grove, and was always treated very well by everyone.

Diane Lawrence, Langley BC


The most caring, trusted, professional, happy and knowledgeable realtor. Always had my best interest at heart! It was never about the commission, it was always about what was important to me. Would always use Michele and I recommend her everyone I know!

Susan Warner


After interviewing a few highly recommended realtors, Michele Cartwright PREC far exceeded my expectations. Her knowledge & history of my area-(past-present & future developments) answered my questions and concerns of selling in this roller coaster market. She was right on top of every detail in the sales process –making this huge undertaking as stress-free as possible. Call her! She will take very good care of you. She is a very sharp business woman!

CG, Langley


Michele Cartwright recently helped me sell my condo and also helped my boyfriend and I purchase our first home together! We both couldn’t be happier with everything Michele has done for us. She never made us feel like we were bugging her and always had our questions answered very quickly! We would strongly recommend Michelle to anyone we know that is looking to buy or sell. Thank you so much Michele!!

We had the pleasure of both buying and selling property with the help of Michele Cartwright.   She was instrumental in helping us secure the house of our dreams! Michele is highly organized, pays attention to detail, and follows through.  She wants what’s best for her clients, listens and gives well thought out advice and allows you to make your own decisions.

Not only was Michele very helpful in the actual buying and selling process but the takes the extra step – mentoring and providing us with information from purchasing appliances, hiring a home improvement contractor, to purchasing decorative items to enhance the coziness of our home.

We would certainly use her services again and definetly recommend Michele Cartwright to our family, friends and colleagues!

Colleen and Chuck Fiehn


When we first heard about Michele we were told she was a “tireless worker” and we found that to be true once we started working with her. In searching for a property to purchase, Michele spent time with us, explained the purchase process to us, and supported us every step of the way. She answered all our questions thoroughly and honestly….no question or request was too much. We truly value her advice and opinions on matters related to purchasing a home.

Michele is personable, authentic, and professional in every way. We highly and confidently recommend her to anyone seeking to buy or sell property.

I would highly recommend Michele Cartwright to anyone! She has been so amazing during this journey of selling our home.
My husband was transferred to another Province for work and I have been left to take care of the selling of our house.
I had no idea the steps to take and was very intimidated by the whole thing..being alone in it and having never experienced it before.
Michele met with me and from our first meeting gave me such a sense of comfort. With her giving nature, her guidance through every detail, her patience (and I was texting her A LOT with questions lol ) she not only had our home sold within an incredibly short time, she made the experience exciting and fun!! THANK YOU Michele from the bottom of my heart for your support, patience, smiles, comfort and your professionalism.

Yours in friendship

Michele’s enthusiastic and warm personality, combined with her willingness to work tirelessly and patiently on our behalf, made our search for a house a most interesting and fun time! Moving to a new City and a new Province can be a daunting experience with a lot of unknowns and many adjustments required to new and different methods and practices. Michele provided immediate assistance both verbally and through the material contained in her Home Buyers binder. Through Michele’s knowledge of the real estate market, she was able to offer many helpful tips and suggestions and provide invaluable information that we could not have obtained on our own. Michele quickly assessed our needs and desires in a house and helped us locate one that would suit our requirements and be just the right place to call home. She was even able to accomplish the almost impossible – getting the keys to us earlier than expected! Michele has become much more than just our realtor … we consider her a most delightful and valued friend. Having Michele help us in our search for a house made all the difference to our success in finding a lovely home! Thank you, Michele! … you’re the best!

–Audrey Phelps


Michele takes to heart her motto of “because you deserve the best”. We have moved many times and have had to sell homes numerous times but our experience with her was the best yet. She went above and beyond helping us sell our place for a decent price and purchase another condo when the market was tough. We would not hesitate to refer her to others who are thinking of selling and/or purchasing a new home. Michele you are the best!!

Graham and Betty


It is with great pleasure that I write this referral about Michele Cartwright. We recently hired Michele (again) to be our Realtor as her performance and personality the first time selling was outstanding.

We put our condo on the market with Michele the first of January and Michele went to work getting the advertising/marketing and everything ready to go. This was the winter, right after Christmas so we thought we would be in for a long wait. But Michele had Realtors showing the property right away and we were presented with an offer and sold within 3 weeks of listing it!

Michele even made us an extra $5,000 on the sale because of her amazing negotiation skills.

I would not hesitate to hire Michele again and I highly recommend her to you or anyone you know.

There are many Real Estate Representative to choose from, but only a select few are at the top of their field as Michele is. Having Michele or your side, representing you will make going through the buying or selling process worry free. You have a professional that will work hard for you and ensure you are well taken care of.

Michele also believes in continued education and is a member of the Real Estate Board of Education to continually move this industry forward. Her heart and soul is in Real Estate and it shines through when she works with her clients.

We were completely impressed with the knowledge and advice that Michele provided in selling and purchasing our homes.  She showcased and promoted our house in such a positive way that even in a slow market we sold in a week.  She was simply fabulous and made the whole experience as painless as possible!

Michele was courteous, professional, thoughtful and thorough.  Not only did we find a real estate agent for life…we found a friend as well.

Thank you Michele, you said that “we deserve the best” and that is exactly what we got.
