Print Agent Bio

When it comes to real estate, your needs are my first priority. Buying or selling a home is an important affair, and I believe that communication between an agent and his or her clients is the key to a successful transaction.

My business is built 100% by referral's from satisfied clients, and turning you into a raving fan is very important to my business. Doing this, requires going above and beyond for every client, and manifests itself in different ways. Showing homes on a moments notice, talking you out of a purchase that I do not believe in, or helping you solve a problem long after my paycheck has been cashed.

While I’m not at the office or out with clients, you can find me riding my motorcycle and spending time with my wife, Hannah, and our three beautiful children, Wayne, Dean and Quinn. Christ is my cornerstone, and my faith is very important to me. I strive to follow him every day, and to treat others with honesty and respect in everything that I do.

The next time you’re poised to enter the market, I’d be honored to guide you through this important experience.

Prior to Michael we had worked with a few other realtors and didn't really know the kind of experience we should be having. Thank god Michael was referred to us by a family member. We were extremely close to offering on a home when we didn't feel very comfortable or good about our current realtor. Michael last minute came and viewed the house we were looking at saw immediately tons of stuff our realtor didn't even mention about the structural integrity of the home and a lot or the expenses that would have to go into it. Needless to say we didn't make an offer on that home. Michael is very knowledgeable in his trade. He clearly takes pride in it and I don't think anyone could go wrong with choosing him. He always was available for questions if we had any and was super clear about everything along the way. Made the experience of buying a home less scary and more fun. If you're looking for a realtor I would Highly suggest letting Michael help you. You would not be disappointed.

— Matt S.

Michael was awesome to work with. When I was looking to buy during this year's crazy housing market, Michael was genuine and reliable throughout the whole process. If the price, HOA, or inspection didn't feel right, there was zero pressure to make or continue with an offer. He was honest about the current market inventory and demand but encouraging, sending listings that met my criteria whenever they managed to appear. After months of viewings, he remained very patient and continued to point out things that I may not have noticed. He was all about finding the best fit for my criteria, even if it meant a longer search. That patient approach paid off when we were able to jump and make a quick, competitive offer when that fit showed up. I'd highly recommend Michael to anyone looking for a new home!

— Zach H.

Michael was an absolute dream to work with. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable and honest, but he went far above and beyond the call of duty. We worked with three other realtors before finding Michael, and his level of integrity, professionalism, and attentiveness is unmatched. He made everything SO easy and seamless. We will never use another agent, nor will we let our friends and family. Make the best decision for your home buying/selling process, and choose Michael!

— Brooke L.

Michael was an amazing resource for first-time home buyers like us! He has a huge wealth of knowledge and experience, and was able to help us see both benefits and drawbacks to various homes that we definitely would have missed on our own. With the added stress of buying from several states away, Michael helped to orchestrate a very efficient home tour trip and responded to all of our questions within minutes typically. He made it clear throughout the entire process that his role was not to push us in any particular way, but to give us every bit of information he could to help us make the best possible decision. We look forward to working with Michael again whenever we move next!

— Claire & Andy A.

I remember a conversation I had with a coworker shortly after I started looking for a house. He asked if I had a realtor, and my response was, "do I need one?" Now that I have been through the process of purchasing a home I realize that was possibly one of the silliest things I have ever said. Without Michael I doubt I would have ever gotten into a home. And if I had, there is a good chance it would have been a money pit and/or death trap. Michael guided me through every step of the process, answered all my questions, and patiently explained everything. We are all busy, but if he was not able to answer a question right away he would let me know when he would have an answer, and always came through. Although I know his job is to make a sale, I never felt like he was pushing me. I felt that he was looking out for me to make sure I knew what I was getting myself into and could be prepared. Owning my own home and property has been one of my main goals the last few years, and Michael helped me achieve that goal!

— Katherine L.

This is our second time working with Michael and he is the first person we go to with our real estate needs. He makes excellent recommendations that led to receiving multiple offers OVER our asking price when we sold and then beat out multiple bids on our recent purchase! Thank you Michael for being so easy to work with and for your extensive knowledge in the market!

— Jason & Drew D.

I hope to persuade you to hire Michael. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home. He is a master at his craft. He communicated clearly and often, balanced advice with listening, and maintained a level of professionalism throughout the ups and downs of our transaction. He worked tirelessly on our behalf and treated the intricacies of our deal with great care. Our experience with him compared to our prior home purchase could not be more different. Our minds were at ease knowing he represented our interests. My wife and I are critical of professionals we hire, we expect a high level of service, and we found that in Michael. Hire Michael, he is worth every penny.

— Samantha & Luke T.

Michael is as real as they come. He’s honest, professional and goes above and beyond for his clients. He made sure my wife and I were were getting the best possible deal on our home and made the process as stress free as possible. An excellent communicator as well! Highly recommend!

— Amy & TJ E.

Michael is truly great to work with. He helped us buy our house four years ago and when we decided to sell, we didn't even consider working with anyone else. Once again Michael exceeded our expectations. He is prompt, candid, professional and friendly. We greatly appreciate everything he's done for us.

— Corrin R.

Michael helped my wife and I buy our first house during a time when supply for our price range is at an all time low. He didn't let us settle for something he didn't think we would love and always found time for us. Me and my extended family will be using him for the foreseeable future

— Dylan & Jessica M.

Michael Elton is true professional, think Daniel Craig in a bond movie but he kicks *** at selling houses instead of spy-craft. Let's face it, selling a house sucks, it's stressful and a bit scary. You want an agent that knows what they are doing, someone experienced, and someone that is serious about protecting what may your biggest investment. Michael Elton is that guy. I appreciated his strategic and calculated approach to selling our home. He gave us a detailed written assessment, and had great insight into where we should focus our efforts. We ended up selling right as the COVID-19 shutdown started. I went into full-on-freak-out mode, thankfully Michael was there to slap the bottle of Xanax out of my hand and told me "Don't worry, I'm in the business of making things work". (he really said that, real cool like). He was able to get photos taken and got us on the market well ahead of plan, his photographer and marketing were amazing. We ended up selling well over asking. Through the entire process Michael kept us informed, we knew what to expect every step of the way. I cannot recommend him any higher.

— Aaron & Sarah F.

This will be the easiest review I have ever written; If you're looking for a hardworking, kind and knowledgeable realtor, look no further than Michael Elton! Michael was in constant communication with me, a first time home buyer, making sure I had all the information I needed to make the best decisions. His knowledge of home buying was evident in every interaction I had with him - he knew the answers to my questions before I even knew I had any questions! Above all, his patience and kindness truly made this experience the best. Thank you, Michael!

— McKinzie E.

Michael was extremely helpful in the entirety of the house buying process (which we are sure would have been much more daunting without Michael helping us every step of the way). As first time home buyers we had TONS of questions and always felt comfortable reaching out to Michael knowing he would be there for us. The amount of time he puts into every aspect of the process was incredible, we truly felt like we were his only clients and we were so appreciative to have him be apart of this wonderful new experience! Thank you Michael!

— Alyssa C.

We had a great experience in the sale of our home with Michaels help. He was attentive, through and efficient. We have recommended him to others.

— Don & Judy C.

Michael was excellent to work with. We were first time home buyers and he did an excellent job walking us through the process and keeping us informed along the way. He did all of the heavy lifting and made the process very easy. Very highly recommended.

— Larry & Alyssa P.

Michael was referred to us by my sister and brother-in-law. We heard nothing but good things about their experience with him. Michael was professional, knowledgeable, and patient throughout the time we worked with him. Michael was quick to respond, readily available, and demonstrated his vast knowledge of the real estate market. Midway through the building of our new home we had some unforeseen issues arise with the seller's agents/builder. Michael helped us navigate them, surveying the roadblocks, while devising solutions. He guided us from the beginning stage of writing a contingency offer, to quickly listing our home, selling it, and building our dream home. We are beyond pleased with both transactions (sell/buy) Michael assisted us with. He helped make our dream a reality! Would highly, highly recommend him!

— Mercedes & David M.

I truly cannot say enough about how wonderful Michael was throughout our entire home buying and selling process. My husband and I found our dream home after walking through the open house and called Michael almost immediately. He encouraged us to write a letter to the sellers explaining who we were and why we wanted this home, which ultimately was a huge reason we had our offer accepted over other offers. Michael negotiated with the sellers, on our behalf, because the house needed a new roof. He is extremely personable and knowledgeable and although it was a stressful process of negotiating, we ended up getting exactly what we wanted and without Michael, we would not be living in our dream home today. On top of all of this, we needed to quickly sell our townhouse. He recommended a great photographer, had amazing marketing material created, hosted back to back open houses and we got multiple offers above asking price within 3 days of the townhouse being posted. Michael is amazing and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a good, honest, reliable realtor and partner through the home buying & selling process.

— Sara K.

Before working with Michael I had a friend tell me, “it felt like he was only working for me.” That was so true. Communication / information / wisdom and advice, all top notch. I really appreciated that Michael always told us the various outcomes and worst case scenario even if the likelihood of that bad thing happening was very low, he just wants you to be aware of everything and prepared. If you are looking for a caring well respected real estate agent, look no further.

— Austin & Chelse N.

Michael is an above and beyond realtor — always working, always educating, always assuring his clients from start to finish. I love his no BS approach and his ability to get what his clients need, when they need it. We never had to wait around, as Michael was on top of every detail and constantly communicating with us. Besides all of that, he’s super funny and just easy to work with. Buying/selling a home with him is as easy as it gets!

— Summer M.

It has been a pleasure to work with Michael while buying/selling our home. He was patient, listened to our needs, and was on top of every twist and turn in the home buying/selling process. He was a great ally/advocate for us, would always find an answer to our questions, and had a great list of professionals to call upon when we needed quotes and repairs. We never felt pressured in any decision-making, and we always felt like his #1 priority. Seriously, I don't know how he finds the time to get it all done. Our family strongly recommends Michael for anyone looking to make a property move!

— Lori B.

Working with Michael made the home buying process a lot less scary. He was very patient as we figured out what exactly we needed/wanted and took us on countless tours of home that matched. He was very communicative and knew to look for things that a normal person probably wouldn’t notice. In the end he helped us get the house we wanted and helped make the negotiation process easier and a bit more transparent.

— Becca B.

Michael was extremely professional, every step of our home buying process. From our first meeting to signing our papers he was present, available and advocated for us time and time again. He was sure to protect our interest and help us get what we wanted out of the construction of our new home! We would highly recommend working with Michael for your real estate needs!

— Joy G.

Michael did such an awesome job helping us sell our condo. He was extremely knowledgable throughout the entire process. From beginning to end he communicated with us and went above and beyond to make sure everything was in place the way it should be. He was professional, kind, understanding, hard working and focused! Couldn’t recommend anyone better than this gentleman. Thank you for all the hard work, It surely paid off!

— Jasmine C.

I cannot say enough positive things about Michael! We’ve bought seven houses prior to moving to Oregon, and Michael is the very best realtor we’ve ever worked with. He is honest, kind, very communicative, and works very hard. He helped us to find the perfect home, but sadly, half way through our process, we were relocated out of state. Michael continued to work with us and for us, even when he had nothing to gain. If that doesn’t say something about integrity, I’m not sure what does. Just a genuinely kind, wonderful person.

— Jenny M.

We cannot say enough praises about Michael. He has been consistently professional, efficient, ethical,knowledgeable, and has always had our back with both the purchase of our current home, but more importantly with the more challenging sale of our last home in an off season time of the real estate market. He is definitely the person you want representing you in any real estate transaction. He is hands down the hardest smartest working realtor out there. And we are experienced clients quickly approaching retirement age.

— Donna & Hilton F.

Michael was a very effective real estate professional for our recent sale: • Helping us prepare our house for sale • Determining the optimal price-point for listing • Preparing an amazing advertising brochure/website • Advising how to handle the multiple offers we received • Guiding the sale transaction every step of the way We appreciate everything Michael did for us, and we highly recommend him.

— John & Kathy H.

Michael did a great job selling our house. He was always available to answer questions. He was helpful, professional, and dedicated. We are extremely satisfied with the service he provided and would recommend him to friends/family.

— Nicole G.

Michael is a bright young professional who was a pleasure to work with! He has a strong code of ethics and is a tactful communicator. Our experience with him was the best ever and we will continue to work with him for our future purchases. Highly Recommended!

— Mike & Rachelle G.

We have worked with Michael twice now. Buying a home and selling a home. Even though he has other clients, you feel like you are the only one because he puts so much effort into you. Makes everything simple for you, great work ethic, professional. Will always work with him in real estate.

— Josh W.

Excellent experience with Michael through the whole process. Literally, I drew a picture of my dream home before we met him and the house we purchased looked eerily similar. We had a newborn at the time, so we relied on him to do a lot of the leg work. His accessibility and willingness to explain the process is unmatched. He is extremely knowledgeable of the market and will give you his opinion, in a helpful and not overbearing way. If/when we buy again, it will be with Michael. 6 out of 5 stars.

— Garet & Megan P.

Very happy with using Michael. He went above the call of duty, communicating and closing the sale all while I was out of the State. Sold my home for more than I was asking and more than it appraised for. You will not regret working with him. Thank you Michael!

— Ruth L.

Michael was awesome to work with! He was knowledgeable and very thorough. He kept track of details, followed up on all our questions and made our home buying experience as easy as possible. He was honest, kind and went above and beyond our expectations. I would highly recommend using him!

— Grant & Nicole F.

We were fortunate to have Michael Elton responsible for selling our home. Michael understands the immensity of selling a home. He is a terrific blend of both genuine personal skills and professional expertise. He is a strong listener and consistently gave us his counsel after first understanding our needs and wants. He worked hard on our behalf and was continually coming up with fresh ideas to market our home. Michael is a wonderful communicator with timely follow through. We always felt the selling of our home was in good hands. Turns out we were right!

— Bryan & Rachel R.

We could not be happier with our decision to work with Michael! Buying our first home was a daunting experience, but Michael made us feel informed, comfortable, and helped us discover what to look for in a home. He was extremely responsive, going out of his way to contact and meet with us. He is a great example of honesty, integrity, work ethic, and has a great handle on the real estate world. We would highly recommend him to all, whether it's your first home or you are looking for something different. Thanks again, Michael!

— Kyle W.

Some of the reasons we would highly recommend Michael Elton: Kind, pleasant, responsive - Michael was great to work with. It was fun getting to look at houses with him - it was like being with a knowledgeable friend! No Pressure: We only looked at two homes before choosing the one we wanted to buy. We were nervous that we had fallen in love with a house too soon. Michael's response; "it could be the right house at the wrong time." Though we ended up buying that house, the fact that Michael wasn't looking for the quick and easy buck spoke volumes to me about his integrity and desire for complete costumer satisfaction. Saved Us Money: I already felt like we were getting a pretty good deal, but Michael made recommendations to make the deal even sweeter! Great guy, very knowledgeable - we had a fantastic experience and would highly recommend Michael!

— Rachel & Andrew R.

Michael was professional, patient with our questions, knowledgeable, invaluable input to price our home with a view to sell quickly, and great team (stager, photographer, referral for handyman). The whole process went extremely smoothly! Thank you, Michael!

— Dennis & Nikki H.

We can't imagine our first home buying experience without Michael! He was hardworking, patient, and incredibly knowledgeable throughout every step of the process. The time and hassle that he saved us made it possible for us to find our home and have a smooth transaction, even with our busy work schedules. Michael is an agent that will never take a shortcut, is not hesitant to call out when something is off, and works to make it right. Although we were very interested in several houses along the way, we are so thankful for the insight we acquired with Michael's help to make the right decision, and frankly avoid houses with some hidden red flags. We are so pleased with our new home, and that we waited for the right fit!

— Rachel A.

Very professional and trustworthy. Michael is a strong client advocate, supports client choice and has a keen attention to detail. He is an excellent negotiator and ensured we were well informed regarding the houses we considered purchasing and the one we did purchase. I highly recommend him for any home purchase!

— Jennifer O.

Wow, working with Michael is so reassuring. I never once questioned or doubted that he had everything dialed in and taken care of. My wife and I would highly recommend him for all real estate opportunities.

— Ben & Summer M.

Michael helped us buy our first home and we could not be more thankful of him and his services. He did an excellent job from start to close and we absolutely recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home. He was patient with me and my husband and was so knowledgeable on current market trends, strategy when offering, and helped us tremendously when walking us through closing and escrow. Michael built a great relationship with the seller of the new construction development in order to get us our dream home. He was efficient, informative, and had a great sense of humor along the way. I was impressed by him and the fact that he was there at every meeting, inspection, signing, appraisal, etc. We will use Michael time and time again and have already referred him to many of our friends, co-workers, and family members. We love our new home and feel so thankful and blessed to have worked with Michael.

— Scott & Camille P.

Michael is very knowledgeable, responsive, and hard working. Could not have asked for a better experience with a realtor throughout the home buying process.

— Jake W.

Michael made my dream of homeownership come true. He went above and beyond throughout the entire process and the purchase of my home would not have been possible without him. What was supposed to be a simple purchase came with many hiccups. Michael made sure that my deal went through and kept me in the loop throughout the entire process. If you’re looking for a realtor who actually cares about you, will fight for you, communicate with you, and go above and beyond to make your dream of homeownership come true, then Michael is your guy! I couldn’t have been in better hands and I am beyond grateful.

— Hayley A.

Michael represented us in the sale of our condo. He went above and beyond to help us in that sale, and then went further to assist us in the purchase of our new home. He didn't represent us in our purchase, but offered to be a resource and advocate as we needed. His work ethic and integrity for his clients is clear, and I look forward to having Michael represent us again in a future home purchase/sale! Highly recommend!

— Jason & Drew D.

I will give you 3 reasons why you should NOT choose Mike as your realtor. 1 He is too responsive. Every time you text him or email him, he returns them right away. You cannot even have a cup of coffee. If you want a realtor who takes couple days to return your email or text, you should not choose him as your realtor. 2 He is too informative He knows everything about local area and houses. Once you get into a house with him, he tells you everything from materials and finishes. How we could redecorate inside and outside,and so on. If you want a realtor who is quiet, you should not choose Mike. 3 He is too honest He doesn't tell you a lie. If there is something he doesn't like about the house you are looking, he just says it. Usually realtors are the ones who want you to buy houses. But Mike is not a like others. He is so honest that you would not end up buying a regular house but a great house. If you rather want a regular house, you should not go there with Mike. We are from Japan, and were interested in buying our first home in the states, but the process was so complicated and troublesome. Without Mike, we couldn't have bought our house. I hope the 3 reasons help you to make your decision.

— Koichi & Mayumi K.

We met Michael randomly at an open house – turned out to be the best chance encounter that could have happened in our home selling and buying experience. He sold our house for well over asking and was able to quickly find us a new home we love in this crazy Portland market. Michael was always very responsive, knowledgeable, friendly and willing to go way above and beyond to ensure the process went smoothly. Thank you Michael!

— Liz & John R.

Michael was great! We were nervous getting our first home and going through the process. He was very patient, informative. He made it a lot of fun.

— Josh & Emma W.

Michael is an awesome person to work with and top pro in has job! You can feel years of experience and professionalism after talking with him just a few minutes...

— Hrach H.

I just recently bought and sold a house with Michael Elton. He did an amazing job finding the house I wanted and he worked very hard to sell ,y previous house. Highly recommend! Very professional.

— James H.

Michael did such an efficient job of walking through the home-buying process with us. He has good knowledge of the area and works quickly to get things done. He kept us informed and was easy to get a hold of when we had questions through the entire process. He's also very friendly, a good communicator, and gives honest advice. I am new to the home-buying process, and he took the time to explain everything I was confused and/or worried about during Escrow. I knew we could depend on him to make sure we were taking all the right steps. We love our new house and are very thankful for all his help.

— Seth & Dani M.

Michael Elton represented us as our agent when we purchased our first home. Before working with Michael, we knew very little about the home buying process and were somewhat stressed by the prospect of having to navigate the Portland Metro housing market. Once we began working with Michael, everything changed. Michael educated us on the home buying processes, making it interesting and enjoyable. Michael's experience and professionalism helped to ensure that our first home buying experience was an absolute success!

— Van B.

I loved working with Michael! He sold my home for well above what I thought I could ever get for it. He has incredible negotiating skills and is extremely knowledgeable in all things real estate. If you are looking for a hard working realtor that will go above and beyond for you and get you the best deal, Michael is your guy!

— Carly L.

We worked with Michael on the purchase of our new home. From the start, this transaction was a challenge due to the seller being very knowledgeable about real estate. He worked with a shorter than customary inspection period and helped arrange our home inspection, then additional sewer, siding, radon, and air conditioning inspections on a moment’s notice all within a 5 day inspection period. In addition, when there was a stalemate with the addendum we requested, he negotiated his way though getting agreement from the seller. After the deal was committed, he maintained open and responsive communication right up until the end. He was able to arrange a final walkthrough of the property despite resistance from the seller and make sure we were able to turn the key on our purchase on schedule in the end. Michael’s experience, knowledge, professionalism, and negotiation skills made a potentially difficult transaction much easier on us. We are delighted to refer our friends and family to Michael, and would use him as our buying or selling agent again.

— Marty B.

Michael is an A+ agent. He gets to know you in order to understand what you are looking for. Michael really becomes part of the family and don't stop until you have the keys to your new home in your hands!! I would never use another agent.

— John & Niki D.

I was ready to sell my house, and so I went to the People of Wilsonville Facebook page and asked for recommendations for a realtor, as I didn't know anyone who is a realtor. I received several recommendations, and I picked 3 to interview. Michael stood out as personable, knowledgeable, and I felt comfortable talking with him. I hired Michael, and I'm so glad I did! He was a consummate professional and handled the sale of my home beautifully. I'm so glad I hired Michael!!

— Diana A.

Michael was able to do a fantastic job representing me. As a first time home buyer it was invaluable to have someone so on top of it and looking out for me. I highly recommend.

"Michael recently represented us in a purchase in Salem. We tried to be aggressive with our offer and timeline, and Michael stayed on top of everything helping us to close FIVE DAYS EARLY! He anticipated our needs before we had them, and was ready with contacts and vendors to help us get each step of the process done on or before schedule. Following the purchase Michael has been a wealth of contacts to assist in follow up work being done on the house. This is our second purchase/sale with Michael and we will not hesitate to work with him again in the near future!"

When we went to see houses, he wasn't just trying to sell the house, but he looked at very aspects of the house and let me know what may cost me down the road. For example he showed me different types of siding, what have longer lifetime, require more maintenance etc...I really enjoyed working with Michael and will recommend him to my friends."

"Michael helped us buy our first home and we could not be more thankful of him and his services. He did an excellent job from start to close and we absolutely recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home. He was patient with me and my wife and was so knowledgeable on current market trends, strategy when offering, and helped us tremendously when walking us through closing and escrow. Michael built a great relationship with the seller of the new construction development in order to get us our dream home. He was efficient, informative, and had a great sense of humor along the way. I was impressed by him and the fact that he was there at every meeting, inspection, signing, appraisal, etc. We will use Michael time and time again and have already referred him to many of our friends, co-workers, and family members. We love our new home and feel so thankful and blessed to have worked with Michael."

"We met Michael randomly at an open house – turned out to be the best chance encounter that could have happened in our home selling and buying experience. He sold our house for well over asking and was able to quickly find us a new home we love in this crazy Portland market. Michael was always very responsive, knowledgeable, friendly and willing to go way above and beyond to ensure the process went smoothly. Thank you Michael!"

"Michael did such an efficient job of walking through the home-buying process with us. He has good knowledge of the area and works quickly to get things done. He kept us informed and was easy to get a hold of when we had questions through the entire process. He's also very friendly, a good communicator, and gives honest advice. I am new to the home-buying process, and he took the time to explain everything I was confused and/or worried about during Escrow. I knew we could depend on him to make sure we were taking all the right steps. We love our new house and are very thankful for all his help."
