Michelle Stanifer is a licensed REALTORŽ with Russell Real Estate Services. She is the type of experienced, hard working, honest REALTORŽ you need when buying or selling a home.
As an experienced REALTORŽ working with buyers and sellers in the Greater Cleveland real estate market and beyond, my experience ranges from cash transactions to government financing, assumptions to foreclosures, first time home buyers to new construction to investment purchases. This experience has taught me, most importantly, to follow the transaction, monitor the closing activities and make sure all parties have the documentation needed to close successfully and on time.
Going the Extra Mile
Michelle is not afraid to go the extra mile, providing her expertise and research results to help you make the best possible real estate decisions in today’s changing market.
I will make sure you are fully knowledgeable about the market area in which your property is located, including recent sales prices, local financing incentives, and competitive properties. My expert negotiating skills paired with my knowledge of the market conditions can result in the best possible selling price or exceptional savings on your real estate purchase.
Outstanding Customer Service
Michelle is dedicated to providing her customers with outstanding customer service.
I am a full time REALTORŽ and am available during the week as well as evenings and weekends. I am available on my cell phone at (440) 391-1304 and respond promptly to all phone calls, emails and text messages.
Many times, buyers will lose out on good properties or sellers will lose good qualified buyers for their home because the agent they have chosen is not responsive or slow to react. My clients deserve an agent who can be responsive to their particular real estate needs and is dedicated to solving their problems. I feel that this is one area where I stand out. My clients know that they can reach me at all times and that I will be available when they need me. (see testimonials below)
Honesty and Integrity
Michelle believes in honesty and integrity in her daily interactions with others both personally and professionally.
It’s important to trust that your agent is not going to compromise your sensitive financial position in the sales process. I’m able to recognize and avoid situations that will compromise my client or my personal integrity.
Put someone to work for you who is willing and able to stand up for your best interests. It’s good to have a friend in your corner who knows how to get things done!

Lisa - Cleveland, OH
I asked to write you about our experience with Russell Realty; specifically, Michelle Stanifer. I can't thank you enough for her help in selecting our new house. After my first meeting with Michelle, I knew we would find the perfect house. She looked through each house with us and gave us her feedback, which was really important to us. She knows that we have a house in Florida. She also knew that getting the most for our money was essential. She provided us with loan help, inspection help, help with so much, even after closing. If and when we should need to sell or know someone who needs help, Michelle is our first call.
She led us to a house that exceeded our expectations! We are ALL so happy and it's because of Michelle who has changed our lives for the better. I'm sure glad we met, a friend forever!
Melannie - Maple Heights, OH
This is just a little note to say Thank You for being such an awesome realtor, you real made our experience GREAT! It was our pleasure working with you and we will be more than glad to send referrals your way. Not only were you available when we needed you and very knowledgeable about different areas of the properties to ensure we made a good decision on buying, you were able to write the contract and negotiate the deal to work in our favor. And for that I want to say Thank You!!! This has been a smooth transition and I don't think we could have done it without you.
Eva and Ton – Sagamore Hills, OH / Breda, The Netherlands
To be honest: The thought ‘how to buy a house in the US’ worried us a little bit. The distance of 4000 miles, and nothing but water in between, made us think how this adventure would end (, we are Dutch and live in The Netherlands). The first realtors we spoke we’re doing average to O.K., but then there was Michelle Stanifer.
From the very start we felt understood, and even more important, taken seriously. Please remember: 99% of the communication was done by E-mail. Michelles concern, adequate and quick responses, knowledge, her personal viewpoint (if we asked for it), and not to forget, her pleasant humorous remarks every now and then was more then we hoped for. The whole process ran very, very smoothly.
We want to thank Michelle not only for being such a great realtor, but she understood and answered perfectly all the approximately 1000 other questions regarding to all things we would have to encounter during our move to Ohio as well.
Conclusion: Dank je wel Michelle! (Thanks Michelle!) We certainly will meet again.
Tom and Elaine - North Olmsted, OH
We recommend Michelle Stanifer as an agent for buying a home. After living in our Lakewood colonial for twenty-six years we decided we needed a home with a bathroom and bedroom on the first floor to accommodate aging hips and knees, within specific cities. Michelle sent us listings for homes for sale, which met our criteria. We selected the ones we were interested in and Michelle took us through them.
We looked at many and we were impressed by Michelle’s knowledge of home construction. Michelle would point out good and bad points of each house, including foundation, wiring, insulation, landscape, drainage and many others. That was very helpful to us because it was a long time since we shopped for a house.
After a few months of searching unsuccessfully in the specific cities we were interested in, Michelle told us she had a pretty good idea what we were looking for based on our comments on all the houses we looked at so far. She asked if she could pick the next house we looked at. We agreed and within two hours Michelle found a ranch home close to, but outside, the specific cities which looked really good. It was for sale by owner. We were impressed with the house and made a bid.
Michelle dealt successfully with the owner who was at times difficult to deal with, and got us a good price on the house. She guided us through the entire process of offer, inspection, loan, and closing. We appreciate Michelle’s professionalism, good humor, patience, kindness and thorough knowledge of real estate. We happily recommend her to you.
