    In 1995 I was drawn to Joseph Oregon by its stunning beauty and recreational opportunities. But I soon found that the true treasure is the people who live here- warm, friendly and full of community spirit. Spend a few days here and you'll discover this for yourself. It was the best move I ever made.

    Complete Information

    ...is key to making a confident decision. I enjoy providing all the information you'll need to help you through your decision making process. I review market trends and property values and also refer to experts where needed. Both Buyers and Sellers need assistance and are sometimes unsure of the right questions to ask. I help you learn what you need to know to have a successful transaction.

michele baird brokerMy Focus: To go beyond your expectations or past experiences

Since 1996 I have been a real estate Broker and have the designation of G.R.I. (Graduate of the Real Estate Institute, Portland OR) I am a full time agent and I am told by my clients that I excel in customer service, follow up and communication.

The Steps in Buying and Selling: I am thorough in explaining the steps and what to expect in each phase of the process. I counsel suggestions and point out a properties challenges as well as attributes, and then guide you through offer/negotiations, inspection, loan process and appraisal. I commit to keeping you informed throughout this lengthy process.

Photography: a GOOD picture is Worth a Thousand Words- Good photography sells! Recently a survey by Realtor.com revealed that photography was the top item of importance to buyers. I supply quality photography with the right lighting and angles.

VR Tours or Video connects you in a far greater way than photography alone and its impact and effectiveness has been surprising. I have found that VR Tours or video shows the properties to their best advantage. After a party has viewed the property – interested parties tend to revisit the tour over and over and it helps the viewer to remember the details of the property. That is especially handy for out of area buyers. I provide VR Tours or Video on listings that warrant the extra exposure..
