Nothing makes me happier than knowing I did a great job for my clients.  I would like to share the
following testimonials from some of my clients in the hopes that I have the opportunity to
work with you!

Michelle was such a pleasure to work with on the recent sale of our home. She was professional, hard working, calm (when we were not!), market savvy and navigated us through a challenging transaction with ease. We were very happy with her performance and the quick sale of our home all at a great price. We would highly recommend Michelle to anyone looking for an experienced and trustworthy realtor on the north shore.

I have known Michelle for almost 15 years now and I am continually impressed with her attitude, her energy and her ability! She is a fierce realtor, a loving mom and someone I am proud to know and work with. As a realtor on Vancouver Island, I wouldn't hesitate to have her look after my Vancouver clients and sleep easy knowing they were in the best hands possible! I can't imagine anyone ever not being pleased with her service and warm and friendly demeanor, don't hesitate to hire this gem of a human!
Shanon K

It was such a treat to work with Michelle! She helped my husband and I find our new home, and was key in making the whole process go smoothly for us. Michelle was super responsive and always just a text away. She has a wealth of knowledge and was quick to provide info for any questions we had (and we had a lot!) or requests to view places. We also really appreciated her transparency throughout and effective communication about the process/next steps. If you're looking for somebody who is open, knowledgeable, and reliable, then I would recommend getting in touch with Michelle!

Amanda Z

When it comes to Michelle I am speechless. She is very smart, professional, honest, caring, knowledgeable, straight forward, stunning negotiator and most importantly she is an amazing human being. Every person who meets Michelle in this life is truly lucky :)

Amir M

Without hesitation we would recommend Michelle to anyone who is considering listing their home. From the moment we met Michelle to discuss our options, she had a very professional way of laying out her vision and plan. We knew we were in good hands. Michelle is not only keenly aware of the needs of homeowners, but knowledgeable and very "in tune" with the market - she is all business. She discussed what we absolutely needed to do before we listed and then laid everything out very clearly for execution. It was seamless from start to finish and we could not have written this story better. We listed on a Tuesday and we were sold the following Monday. We had multiple offers and sold over asking thanks to Michelle‘s marketing strategy. Michelle is absolutely the reason why our house sold.

Jen V

Michelle worked with my family for almost a year in our search for our perfect home. She was very patient, very knowledgeable and was critical in the search for our home. I’d highly recommend her to anyone looking for a professional realtor that has thorough knowledge of the housing market.

Camilo S

Michelle is a joy to work with. Makes the process of buying and selling a house fun. Highly recommend her.


I was new to home buying, and have heard horror stories from friends and family about terrible agents. Michelle is truly professional and personal! She never made me feel uncomfortable and helped me every step of the way! Michelle explained everything in a way that was easy to understand from the making the offer, to working with the mortgage banker. We were so happy with her service and would like to recommend her to everyone.

Shirin G

We were extremely pleased with the professional and attentive service offered by Michelle as she worked tirelessly to successfully sell our home. Highly personable, she was always a text or phone call away and we quickly established a comfortable working relationship with her. She has a deep knowledge and understanding of the real estate market in West Vancouver and we have already recommended her to friends that are considering a move. We could not have been happier with our experience. Thank you, Michelle!

Susanna M

Michelle is incredibly knowledgeable, professional, kind, and wonderful to work with. The sellers realtor was not easy to work with, but Michelle made sure that everything went smoothly. This is the third time my family has worked with Michelle, and the first time that I have, and I will continue to use her for all of my real estate needs. It makes everything easier to know you are dealing with someone with high integrity. I completely recommended her!

Leora D

Michelle is my favourite realtor! She has worked with us on 3 real estate transactions over the past few years including buying and selling in West Vancouver, Bowen Island, and Vancouver - 2 homes and one leasehold condo. She has had our back every single time. Her knowledge covers a huge range and has saved us thousands of dollars, for example through a little known tax statute our lawyer didn’t know about. I recommended her to a friend who was selling her apartment and she was also extremely happy working with Michelle. She sold her place for more than expected due to expert advice Michelle has that unique combination of caring, motivation (some realtors just don’t seem to care!), intelligence, and knowledge. Highly recommend.

Tamara P

Michelle was really knowledgeable and professional. She helped my with my first pushes and everything went really smoothly throughout the process. It was actually fun! Highly recommended

Chuma N

We entrusted Michelle to help us look for a suitable home for our growing family. She did not disappoint. She is so patient with us, and never pushed us to make any hasty decisions just to make a sale. Michelle is an amazing realtor, great at her job, efficient, knowledgeable, timely and above all she truly cares and it definitely came across that way. Will definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor that puts their clients needs first!

Karen F

We had somewhat of a unique home buying experience with Michelle in that it was a very short search. We found the place we wanted on our very first weekend of open houses with her. She knows this industry so well, and she knows North Vancouver real estate as well or better than anyone else you’d potentially work with. To put it simply: she knows what she’s doing. We were in very, very capable hands the whole time. She is incredibly responsive, takes care of small and large tasks in a very timely manner, and forgets NOTHING. We really felt like she was in our corner during the whole process. No regrets!

Esh S

Michelle helped me sell my mother's condo. Michelle knows the North Shore market and she developed an effective strategy that wound up maximizing the sale price. She went above and beyond in helping me deal with an outstanding issue, and I unreservedly recommend Michelle to anybody looking for a realtor.

Peter M

We worked with Michelle on two occasions: when we bought our first home and when we sold our first home! Michelle is very knowledgeable of the North Shore real estate market and the industry in general. She always had a strategy in place from the beginning which helped us feel more assured and confident. She's professional, well-connected, and confident! We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Michelle to anyone.

Julie & James

So proud to say we have known Michelle for 8 years & she's helped us buy and sell two wonderful homes on the North Shore. Michelle is very knowledgeable, professional & a passionate Realtor. She's invested in finding you the right home. We continue to highly recommend her to all our friends and associates - "she's simply the best"!

Jo L

As a Realtor myself, I wanted to make sure to find someone to help my family with the sale of their home who would take that same kind of care of them as I would. It's a big deal to me to entrust someone with my inlaws!! Based in California, I obviously couldn't be the one to sell their home. I researched, and interviewed several agents, and knew instantly that Michelle was the one for the job. Not only is she a well established agent who knows the area well, but she approaches her business with care and empathy. She marketed their property expertly, and negotiated so well on their behalf, all while keeping me apprised and in the loop. I can't say enough about her professionalism and care, and I am so excited to have made such a wonderful new friend and business contact in Vancouver!

Andrea Chaffey

We are a young family who has been looking for a house in North Shore for couple of years. Throughout our search we had an opportunity to meet many agents, Michelle Vaughan has proven to be the most professional, knowledgeable, patient and very easy to work with.  Michelle truly wants to make sure that their clients are satisfied with their home purchase by making sure that they don’t overpay and by recommending the best home inspectors. With this stance she has helped us acquire our dream house below the market value during a very hot sellers market of 2020! We would highly recommend Michelle without any hesitation. 

Faik & Amina

My partner and I, who are both first-time home buyers, worked with Michelle to find a home in North Vancouver. From the consultation call to seeing properties to putting in an offer, the entire process was smooth and seamless. Michelle did a great job in advocating for our needs and we knew that we were in caring, professional, and experienced hands. As stressful as buying a home can be, Michelle reassured us every step of the way and made the experience fun and as stress-free as possible. We are so happy with our new home and thank Michelle for her hard work to help us find it. I would love to work with Michelle again down the road and would recommend her to anyone.


My wife and I were impressed by Michelle's professionalism and local knowledge of West Vancouver communities, which were invaluable in helping us choosing the right place for our family to put down new roots from another province. We received lighting fast responses for all our queries and her opinions were honest. We would recommend her service without hesitation!

J & V Chen

We highly recommend Michelle if you are planning to sell and/buy a house on the North Shore.

 Michelle has a wealth of experience and knows the North Shore market extremely well. She works hard and responds very promptly regardless of how many client she’s working with at any given time.

 Michelle is very candid and resourceful. When we viewed homes together, she pinpointed and shared the details of the house like landscaping challenges to potential environmental factors that might impact the house value. When she did not immediately know the answer, she took the initiative to investigate and provide a response in very short order so we could make a quick decision to proceed on an offer.

 In addition to being easy and friendly to work with, Michelle is extremely flexible given her busy schedule. She always put her clients first and makes sure we are happy and satisfied with the result.

 With Michelle’s expertise and advice, you will definitely feel at ease looking for your dream home on the North Shore. 

Chima Family

As a first time buyer, I had a lot of anxiety and confusion about the markets and the buying processes. Michelle made everything so easy and even enjoyable to be able to find something that is perfect for my family. She never gave up on me, encouraged me to think outside the box, entertained my very basic questions and did it all with a smile and a lot of laughter.  I specifically wanted a strong woman to work with and I found this with Michelle as she understands the needs of both parent and child. Michelle went above and beyond her job description and for this I will be ever grateful. 

S. Verjee

We recently worked with Michelle to purchase a home in West Vancouver. Michelle was one of the best agents we have had the pleasure of working with. She was professional, very up to speed on the market conditions and comparable sales, calm throughout the negotiations and most importantly honest in her opinions. She doesn’t sugarcoat things and has her buyers’ best interests at heart. I truly felt she cared more about our client relationship than the deal we were working on. She was able to secure us a wonderful home for our family and we will always be grateful to her. I would highly recommend Michelle for anyone looking for a smart, funny, thorough, and loyal real estate agent.

A. Ulinder

Without hesitation we would recommend Michelle to anyone who is considering listing their home.

From the moment we met Michelle to discuss our options she had a very professional way of laying out her vision and plan. We knew we were in good hands.  Michelle is not only keenly aware of the needs of homeowners, but knowledgeable and very in tune with the market - she is all business. She discussed what we absolutely needed to do before we listed and then laid everything out very clearly for execution. It was seamless from start to finish we could not have written this story better.

We listed on a Tuesday and we were sold the following Monday. We had several offers and sold way over asking thanks to Michelle‘s marketing strategy.  Michelle is absolutely the reason why our house sold.

 J & C VM

 We have been working with Michelle for over a year as we searched for a suitable property. Michelle has always been very prompt in terms of responding to our requests, regardless of the day or time. She is also very thorough in terms of doing the research and talking to the other agents. This feedback and insight has been critical in our determination of a suitable property. Throughout our search, Michelle has been very patient and accommodating to our ongoing questions and concerns. In the end we were fortunate to find a great place that we liked and Michelle was able to negotiate very well on our behalf. For us we have not only found a great agent to work with but indeed a new friend and we hope to continue working with Michelle in the future. I would recommend Michelle without hesitation.  

A & A Juma

Working with Michelle has been a blessing and a pleasure. From the initial consultation meeting we found Michelle to be warm and genuine, we truly felt she was working with us to achieve our goals in selling as well as purchasing. Throughout the process she maintained constant communication and kept us involved and informed. We definitely had the “warm fuzzies” about working with her, but also saw that she possessed the ability to negotiate strongly on our behalf. In a super hot market with multiple bids and units being sold well over asking (including our own sale), Michelle helped us to buy under asking.  Her depth of knowledge of the local area was a huge asset during our purchase. Michelle found a unit that checked all the boxes and never pressured us to make an offer.  We are so happy in our new home and neighborhood. We will work with her again and again.  

D & M Garritsen

Buying your first home is stressful. Buying your first home in Vancouver can feel hopeless. My wife and I went through the process a year ago, got discouraged and gave up after bidding wars pushed things out of our comfort zone. When we somewhat reluctantly decided to try it again, Michelle was recommended to us. I can honestly say that we couldn’t have been happier with the experience. We never felt pushed. We never felt like we weren’t a priority. I really enjoyed her energy and personality. When we missed out on a good property because of when we started our search, Michelle knocked on doors at the complex to see if there were any other potential sellers. When the place we bought came up, it felt like we had an advantage over the others interested because of the timing, guidance and attention Michelle offered. We now have a home and have Michelle to thank for that!

D Harrison

Being a Realtor I know how important having the right agent to market your home is, Michelle looks out for her clients best interests not her own. Too many agents have too many listings and can't offer the level of service required to sell your home for top dollar and often use inexperienced assistant's. With Michelle you deal directly with her. From photos, floorplan & staging to marketing our home she ensured it showed the best it could! Our home sold in a DAY didn't even make it to the open house!!!! If your looking for an agent to get the most value for your home please call Michelle. Thanks again for excelling heads and shoulders over the other agents we met with, I STRONGLY recommend Michelle's services. 

D Miller

Michelle is much more than a real estate agent; she works triple duty as a coach, counselor, and friend. This only serves to enhance her professional, thorough, and classy approach to the business of buying or selling real estate. Not only did I feel that I was in good hands professionally, I also knew I had someone willing to hold my hand if things got stressful. Michelle is patient with clients but prompt and diligent with professional details. I not only recommend her highly, I also plan to consult with Michelle on any future real estate needs.

A Bosshard

My girlfriend and I have had the pleasure of working with Michelle on a couple of deals over the course of 3 years. In both instances she was organized, efficient, professional, and most of all personable. It can be difficult buying your first home or selling for the first time. We were fortunate that we used Michelle and not only got the place we loved for well below the asking price, we sold it again 3 years later for a profit of 47%. We couldn't be happier with our representation and wouldn't trust anyone else to do the job that she's done for us! 

T Jones & S Mostaghel

When I was looking for a place to buy in North Van., the market was crazy - everything was selling in a day.I met Michelle at a showing, and I needed a good realtor to represent me, and Michelle impressed me with her knowledge, enthusiasm and professionalism.She was honest at all times, and advised me on all the pros and cons when looking at properties, and had an excellent strategy for getting the right place at the price I wanted.She went out of her way and I enjoyed working with her.   I highly recommend Michelle to anyone looking to buy or sell their next home.

A Heal

Having Michelle market and sell our home was a seamless and most stress free experience. Her consistent and calm approach to our needs and gathering the details for the presentation and ensuring accuracy was very comforting. Michelle's tireless efforts, communication  and assistance with all the preparation before and after was fantastic. Extremely knowledgeable and connected to the Community she works in, we would not hesitate in recommending Michelle as an outstanding Real Estate Professional to sell your property as well. Her strategy exceeded our expectations of the resulting price she negotiated for our home.

D. & K. Wood

After looking at houses with different realtors, we met Michelle at an open house and knew she was the realtor for us. She consistently gave my husband and I honest and accurate advice about the houses we looked at and about the market.  She clearly understood what we were looking for and worked very hard for us which resulted in our purchasing the perfect home at the right time.  Then she helped us sell our previous home and was extremely professional.  When a tricky situation arose she handled it beautifully, saving us a lot of stress.  Michelle is trustworthy, caring, and knowledgeable. We will use Michelle again for buying and selling and would highly recommend her to anyone.

T. Pearl

I highly recommend Michelle. I interviewed several real estate agents and Michelle came across as the best agent for selling my parents home. She is amazing:  a pleasure to work with; professional, hardworking, easy to communicate with, and goes above and beyond to help make the sale go as smooth as possible.Michelle knows how to produce excellent results. Our home was sold in less than a week, far above the listed price. 

E. Sinclair

Michelle Vaughan is an energetic, enthusiastic, and hard-working professional who goes the extra mile for her clients. She is detail-oriented, pleasant to work with and most importantly achieved a most satisfactory sale in only 7 days!  I have no hesitation in recommending her. 

B. Phillips

Dear Michelle,You are beyond compare.  One of the very best things to come out of all this was meeting you! You excellent help, extensive knowledge and amazing energy made all the difference.  We couldn't have done it without you.  You are a rare gem (aka superstar) in this field.  Thanks for all your help and support.

J. Armes

When we first decided to sell our house we knew we needed a Realtor, we just didn't know what a difference the right Realtor would make.  We had tried on 3 previous attempts to sell and were always disappointed in the lack of outcome.  When we decided to list with Michelle Vaughan we were pretty much fed up with the system. However, it was the best decision we ever made.  Michelle told us exactly what we needed to do to sell and she marketed our home extensively.  Within 2 weeks we had received an offer that was very close to our asking price.  I cannot recommend Michelle Vaughan highly enough.  If you want to sell you owe it to yourself to interview her for the job.  Otherwise, you just aren't getting the best...

A.  Woodley

I have never seen a Realtor who works as tirelessly as you Michelle.  You truly made this process easy and satisfying. Thank you!

J. Fryer

We recently hired Michelle Vaughan to assist us with our sale and were impressed by their knowledge of the market and attention to detail.  Because we live out of town we needed someone who could handle some of the extra things we couldn’t.  She streamlined the process and we were amazed how easy it is when you hire the right agent.

A. Lani

 If it wasn't for you Michelle we would have paid way too much for the property we wanted. Thanks for getting us such a great price and keeping us calm while you did it.  


Your enthusiasm and energy are what initially drew us to you Michelle.  Once we worked with you we were even further impressed by your dynamic thinking and ability to adjust to factors outside of our control to get to a successful outcome.  Thank you for all your very hard work!

T. Peak

Michelle Vaughan recently sold a home that was owned by my family.  It was a difficult situation and she handled it with grace and sensitivity.  I am certain there is no one else who would have navigated through this sale the way she did.

-G. Halton


As you know, the decision to sell my house was a very difficult one for me.  Thank you for all your hard work to make it as easy as possible.  You truly are an expert in your field.

-M. Finley

Michelle Vaughan recently sold my house. She was tenacious, attentive, diligent in getting the job done.  I was extremely pleased with her performance and I would recommend her to anyone who was thinking of selling their house.

A. Mathisen

My husband and I have worked with many Realtors over the years, but none of them compared to Michelle Vaughan.  She was extremely professional and knowledgeable about the market and was honest with us, even when she thought it wasn't what we wanted to hear.  She gave us very sound advice about things that we needed to do to sell our house, and she was bang on!  Within a few days we had 2 offers and Michelle was able to negotiate a deal that was exactly what we wanted.  I highly recommend her to everyone I know.

S. Langworthy

Michelle is dedicated, hardworking, and helped us find just the right house.  Thanks for everything!

S. & A. Thompson

Michelle listened to what we wanted and found potential properties that fit our needs – time was not wasted on seeing things that would not work. Appreciated her determination to find us just the right property.  In the end, we got a beautiful view property to build our dream home.

D. & H. Ferguson

Michelle's expertise in both selling and buying are exceptional.  When I encountered unexpected challenges in my sale, Michelle worked with me every step of the way to the completion of the sale.  As well, she expertly guided the purchase of the perfect new home for me.  Michelle is a very knowledgeable agent.  I would not hesitate to recommend her for both buying and selling.
A very appreciative thank you, Michelle!
M. Hamill

My wife and I were glad we had Michelle working for us when we bought our house.  She negotiated a deal for us in possibly the biggest seller's market that Vancouver has ever seen.  Michelle is a fantastic negotiator and she worked tirelessly to make sure we got everything that we wanted.  Not only did we get a great deal, a great house, in a great location, but we have finally found our 'lifetime realtor'.-

J. Henderson

I first met Michelle at an open house and was won over by her warm personality and energy.  It was several months later when I contacted her to say I was ready to buy, and I was not disappointed.  She was armed with current market knowledge and after talking with me for a short while, had a very good understanding of what it was I was looking for.  I was amazed that she seemed to be able to see my vision of my new house so quickly.  She never wasted my time with houses that wouldn't have interested me.  Michelle made this tough job easy and was always available to answer any questions/concerns.  I truly enjoyed working with her and would highly recommend her to anyone in need of real estate expertise.

S. Cahill

Dear Michelle,

I would never buy a home without you ever again.  Your market knowledge, thorough understanding of what I was looking for, diligence, and professionalism are unmatched.   I love my new home! Thank you for everything.

E. Rogers

When my husband and I moved here from Burnaby we were not really familiar with the North Shore Real Estate market.  When we met Michelle at an open house we felt she had a very good understanding of the market and what we needed.  She helped us to find the right house and got us a great deal.  We would highly recommend her if you need real estate services. 

B. & D. Steele

Michelle recently helped me purchase a house I have always wanted.  It came on the market and she immediately let me know it was available.  She negotiated me a fantastic price in a crazy market and I got that house I had been eyeing for a long time!  Thanks Michelle!

B.  Roberston

Dear Michelle, I came through your open house a few days ago and wanted to comment on how great it was to listen to you talking about the house you were selling with such enthusiasm and excitement.  When you told one person how much you loved this house and why I could tell you really did.Then you told me it wasn't even your own listing!  I was surprised because you knew everything about the house, all the small details that matter.  You had all the market stats and comps available also to potential buyers...all I have to say is I will be calling you soon when I am ready to sell!
L. Anthony

We interviewed several Real Estate Agents before committing to a time sensitive agreement with Michelle Vaughan of Prudential Sussex. She was the only Real Estate Agent that told us, in the first minute of our conversation, she could sell our townhouse for the price we wanted and within our desired time line.  She made this statement with confidence and conviction.  Nobody else was able to present int his way...and she delivered on time and on budget.  She gave us very good extra staging tips and she sold our townhouse in 5 days, while we were skiing at Whistler. 

We were in our favourite little tapas bar when we got the "SOLD" call.  Her follow up was timely and detailed.  She was a pleasure to do business with.  We give her top professional marks and we'd recommend her to any serious buyer or seller.  Way to go Michelle!

P. Chorney & K. Hughes

Michelle helped me buy my dream home! She showed her excellent problem solving skills when she collaborated with the sellers agents to have some work done before my move in date. I was thrilled with this solution, and convinced me I was in good hands! If  you're looking for an agent that is hardworking, tenacious, and on your side all the way through,  then Michelle is your Realtor.

M. Paccione

Michelle Vaughan sold my house in 2 weeks for the price I wanted.  She was diligent and tenacious, and extremely knowledgeable about the market.  She attacked my sale with unending energy, enthusiasm, & expertise.  I would highly recommend her.

D. Nolan

We want to let you know how much we appreciate you! It is rare in this day and age to find someone in the real estate business that you feel you can trust and that has your best interests in mind.  We know you do. All your hard work and attention to detail made this happen for us.
