Michelle was very knowledgeable about the buying process, and always was quick to reply to our questions. She showed us several properties, but never pushed us to make an offer on anything. She kept us informed about dates and times of inspections that were done, and closing.


Showed home with Michelle

Michelle was a life saver! She asked us what we were looking for and helped us through process and elimination not to get caught up in the house buying process. She would be honest with us and reminded us what our key elements were we wanted in a home. She made sure we had the right inspectors and that we werent gouged. Now we are 4 months into our dream home, thanks to Michelle!!

Positive, confident and knows her business.

The Mitchums

Michelle was highly recommended by our friend and we can see why with her complete dedication to the purchase process of our new home. She always made herself available to our schedule and was a lifesaver in getting our home sold.

The Travers

I had seen you in action with family and I liked what I saw. You went out of your way to work on the sale.

The Cornmans

Easy to talk to, works for the clients and not herself, and makes you feel very comfortable. We were glad we interviewed several agents before making our decision.

The Bobbs

I have worked with Michelle in the past while buying a house and used her again to sell a house. Her level of expertise, attention to detail, and responsiveness make the entire process as easy as possible. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Purchased a home and Sold a Single Family home in Silvis

Michelle is arguably the hardest working real estate agent I have worked with. She did everything to sell my house while I wasn’t even in town the entire time.

  • Couldn’t have asked for more! Rich is prompt, efficient, caring and very personable. Rich was great. Stormy was terrific, and the fact that they took care of a problem that arose long after the closing was serice above and beyond. We were very pleased.


  • Rich was very helpful in selling our home. Always willing to offer opinions and solutions as we went thru the sales process. He was always available to answer questions. I highly recommend him to help buy or sell your home.

    M Burgess

  • My house was listed and sold in under a week – and the process was easy. Rich’s assistant Stormy was amazing and was always quick to respond to any of my questions. They took care of everything for me.

    K Blummer

  • We found ourselves in a sticky situation, already under contract with a buyer, and then there was a horrible weather event that could have destroyed the sale. Rich was there to hold all the pieces together, and did so much work on all our parts to make sure the deal stayed together. I don’t think we would have sold without him. Rich is a national treasure!

    Diane and Steve

  • Rich sold our house in 5 days and above asking price! We were pleasantly surprised and thankful for the quick sale, and we know it was due to his expertise and negotiation skills. Additionally, his associate, Michelle Rottach, was incredibly helpful in our search for our new house. Her patience, advice, and expertise was critical to helping us find a forever home that we love. I highly recommend their team to anyone looking to buy or sell!
