 As a former military spouse, Michelle purchased, staged/remodeled and sold homes in 5 different states. As a result of these personal moves she relates and can attest to the many unique challenges associated with a military relocation.  

She never tires of meeting new people, exploring homes, searching for just the right property for a client, or preparing and staging a home for sale. Her motto is;” I build lifetime relationships by always putting my clients in a better place.”

When not serving clients, Michelle enjoys cooking international dishes, entertaining friends at home, visiting wineries and exploring the many DC neighborhoods. She also has a passion for world travels, home staging and home improvement projects.  Most of all, Michelle loves spending time with her teenage daughter who has a wicked sense of humor and keeps her up to date on the latest technologies, social media and pop culture (including hilarious memes).

“Michelle was wonderful and very knowledgeable throughout my whole home buying experience!”
Matt Johnson Woodbridge va (Buyer)
“Michelle was prompt, way ahead and planned for every moment that could happen during this process. I was referred through and online affiliation and, after doing my diligence of interviewing agents, Michelle Sanoske stood out above the rest. Although the process felt rushed, because of minor things to get the home ready for sale, Michelle was there as our guide. She provided expert staging advise, worked with our schedules and at the end of the day got our home sold in 7 DAY!! Never could have expected that. She even negotiated a 7 day rent back so that we can get our things ready to move to another home. Again, Thanks. Her enthusiasm for her job is real and yes I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an experience professional.”
Jemal, Springfield VA (Seller)
“Michelle was very helpful and understood my needs from day one. She was very flexible and knowledgeable of the areas I was looking for properties. She really really knows how to put an offer on a house buy making the seller take our offer and at the same time looking out for me as a buyer. She was able to make my seller put a new roof on the house before I signed the contract. Michelle's communication is excellent, even if she miss my call she would call me back asap. Or if she's busy she would quickly tell me she would call me back. Michelle is so respectful and has lot of confidence. She helps me even after we closed on the property. I call or text her for recommendations and she would still respond to my need. Very selfless and fantastic lady. She's the best!!200%!”
Tom-Springfield VA (Buyer)
“Michelle is an outstanding professional, who is an excellent comunicator. She anticipates all that could go wrong or right during a sale and she shares her thoughts, experiences and recommendations transparently. She has a long standing, strong and tight network in the real estate profession. She is the best in the business and could not have asked for a more intelligent, highly skilled agent. We conducted the sale of our property from overseas and Michelle was a pro at all levels. We were always well informed on the progress of the sale and all offers placed on the table. She is an incredible listener and a fantastic problem solver. Being overseas, could have made this transaction complicated, but Michelle's Professionalism and active communication made the selling of our home smooth and efficient. Michelle deserves the highest praise. ”

“As first time home buyers, it was very comforting to have Michelle Sanoske around because she was so knowledgeable and helpful in all aspects of home buying. It really felt like she was on our side. She was able to guide us through the entire process and really looked out for us, going beyond expectations to ensure that everything went as smoothly as possible. We had some trouble with the seller's response times, but Michelle was very persistent and we would not have worked out everything if we didn't have her help. She was available and accommodating for any of our needs, and was willing to explain everything to us so that we could be updated during the entire process. We were confident in her experience, and we really appreciated working with someone who we knew could produce excellent results. It was a pleasure working with her from start to finish, and I would recommend her to anyone.”

“Michelle did a great job responding to our initial requests, orienting us to a new area and providing the guidance we needed to make the right choice. When a decision had been made she served as local eyes on the ground, since we were residing several hundred miles away and couldn’t be on site to take care of details. When we closed she was there to make us feel at home from day one. For us, she was more than an agent, she was a friend ”
Barry Cohen, Ashburn (Buyer)
“Very pleased with the overall sales experience. The DC metro market seemed overwhelming to us, however Michelle Sanoske made the experience pleasant and ensured we got the home we wanted.
