Michelle Badour has enjoyed a rewarding and successful real estate career at Douglas Elliman for nearly 20 years, helping first-time buyers to seasoned sellers and investors achieve their unique goals. Her knowledge, commitment to service and resourcefulness are valuable assets which allow her to fulfill her clients' diverse needs and demands with accuracy and ease. Michelle is a member of the top-producing Kotler Team, which specializes in corporate relocation for Fortune 500 companies in addition to sales and rentals. The team consistently ranks in the top 1% in the country and receives the prestigious Pinnacle Club Award year after year.
Michelle always had a passion for real estate, and chose to become an agent while still in college. She moved to New York City from her hometown Dallas, Texas on a leap of faith after earning a Bachelor degree in Advertising and Public Relations, and has not regretted a moment. Michelle has since cultivated not only her real estate business, but the vast network of contacts at the top of their field, from photographers to real estate attorneys, mortgage bankers, contractors and stagers, with whom she works in concert to make your transaction as seamless as possible. She is readily available and has a great team working behind her, enabling her to spend the one-on-one time that every client deserves. She will be the only person you work with and who shows the properties to ensure they are shown in the most timely, efficient manner, so the right match and deal can be made.
Timing and presentation are everything in this business, Michelle believes. Her real estate experience, coupled with her advertising and PR background, have fueled her keen ability to excel in creatively marketing properties, and impeccably preparing board packages. Michelle's innate ability to not only satisfy but exceed her customers' expectations is the reason she maintains a high client retention rate. Her honest and direct approach is largely why her clients remain loyal and refer new business to her. She has a down-to-earth personality, which is great for relating to her clients, and enables her to ease the most stressful of situations. “Above and beyond” are words often used to describe Michelle. Those are some of the qualities which make her loyal clients also lifelong friends.
