We recently moved to Stillwaters at Lake Martin, after months of searching for the “perfect house on the lake.” Michelle Brooks was our agent, and we couldn’t be happier with our experience with her. She was very patient, not only showing houses to my husband and me, but also many times letting my sister and her husband tag along as well. She never got frustrated with us when we would ask to go back to the same house multiple times after looking at several others.
We could always count on Michelle to give us honest feedback and sound advice. She spent time getting to know our wants and needs and made sure that she found houses that she knew met our expectations; therefore, not wasting time with homes that she knew we wouldn’t like. However, she was still happy to show us any house that we asked to see even if she didn’t think style or location was something that we’d like (she was always right about that also).
We never felt pressured into looking at houses that were outside our comfort zone, and she was never too busy to fit us into her schedule. We had to sell a house in Montgomery before we could buy at Lake Martin, and we had several setbacks and disappointments when deals fell through, but Michelle was there with us through it all, continuing to find houses that she knew we would love, and encouraging us by reminding us that if we lost one house that we loved, there’d always be another.
She was right-on there also, and we couldn’t be happier with the house that we were finally able to purchase. Michelle was able to negotiate a deal that made that happen for us. We would (and have) recommend her to anyone who’s looking for a great real estate agent.

We first got to know Michelle when my wife Susan called about a listing she had on Lake Martin in the Spring of 2007. We did not have a realtor contact at the lake and Michelle really took a keen interest in determining exactly what we were looking for while staying focused on our stated price range. She did a wonderful job of locating prospective properties for us and was always willing to find out as much as she could about the properties. Michelle showed us dozens of prospective properties over the course of a year including the perfect lot that we were fortunate to acquire this Spring. Michelle is a very pleasant professional realtor and is very knowledgeable of the Lake Martin real estate market. Michelle made shopping for lake property an enjoyable experience and we consider her a good friend. Thanks Michelle!

I am a new comer to Lake Martin. I was very hesitant about purchasing a property this year, realizing I had to first overcome the learning curve. After calling Michelle about a listing, I was very honest with her upfront about my situation. However, she was more than willing to spend the kind of time I needed to become familiar with lake living. Since that phone call I have learned so much from her in a short amount of time. Her knowledge of the lake has helped me better understand what I truly desire out of a waterfront home. Michelle has shown me a wide variety of properties so that I could really gain confidence in making the right purchase. I consider myself very fortunate to be working with a Realtor who has such a strong passion for what she does. Thanks for everything Michelle!

We cannot say enough great things about Michelle Brooks. We definitely would not have the lake cabin on Lake Martin that we have if it were not for Michelle. We grew up going to Lake Martin and we wanted to find a place that our children could enjoy and create great childhood memories like we did. However, we had a strict budget given the amenities we wanted. I honestly didn’t think it was possible. This did not deter Michelle one bit. We started working with Michelle about 2 years prior to finding the right one. We were very surprised, but extremely grateful that Michelle never gave up on us. We truly believe that any other agent probably would have given up on us early on thinking we were unrealistic and would never find anything in our price range.
We now consider Michelle a great friend and we highly recommend Michelle to anyone looking to buy a place on Lake Martin. Again, Michelle knows the Lake Martin market extremely well and takes whatever time is necessary to find your dream property whether you are looking for an entry level cabin or a million dollar plus luxury home.
