Get to know Michelle DeRepentigny

As the broker of Success Realty (GA Firm #H47230), Michelle is proud to lead a group of enthusiastic & ethical REALTORS in providing premium customer service to all our clients. 

Michelle believes that true success is about more than just money.  Many clients have asked her why the name "Success Realty"?  Her reply is "To me, success is about giving excellent service in real estate back to my hometown and having a passion for what I do.  The best feeling in the world is received from counseling a first time home buyer and seeing the look on their faces when they successfully purchase their first home!  The next best feeling is being a part of their lives and their friend in the future!"

Michelle has 12+ years of real estate brokerage experience.  After years of being the managing broker for a large franchised brokerage with 3 offices, she recently opened Success Realty in downtown Athens, Georgia to promote affordable home ownership opportunities in the Athens area and to offer both homeownership and career opportunities to the diverse popluation that Athens Georgia enjoys due to the influence of the University of Georgia.   

Michelle is also a Georgia Certified Residential Appraiser (License #6547) and the co-owner of Diversified Property Services with her husband, David.  Michelle brings extensive knowledge of the Athens, GA real estate market to the table through longevity in her real estate brokerage & real estate appraisal career and by being a native Athenian!

Success Realty utilizes all the traditional methods of marketing homes including Homes & Land Book, traditional newspaper ads in 4 market areas, our company website at Success Realty, Michelle's personal website, email flyers, and full color brochures at all listings.  Additionally, Success Realty embraces the internet by posting listings at Zillow.com, Craigslist.org, Localism.com, and 30+- other less traditional internet sites to expose our seller's homes to the largest pool of buyers available!

 

Success Realty offers 1st time homebuyers seminars on a bi-monthly schedule and has educational materials available in English, Spanish, Korean, Russian and several Chinese dialects available for our customers and clients.  Clients who speak English as a second language have many materials available to them to help with the home buying process and interpreters are usually available, as needed, to help!

Michelle has earned the nationally recognized Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource certification.

 

The National Association of REALTORS® offers the SFR certification to REALTORS® who want to help both buyers and sellers navigate these complicated transactions, as demand for professional expertise with distressed sales grows.  According to a recent NAR survey, nearly one-third of all existing homes sold recently were either short sales or foreclosures.  For many real estate professionals, short sales and foreclosures are the new “traditional” transaction.  REALTORS® who have earned the SFR certification know how to help sellers maneuver the complexities of short sales as well as help buyers pursue short sale and foreclosure opportunities.

 

“As leading advocates for homeownership, REALTORS® believe that any family that loses its home to foreclosure is one family too many, but unfortunately, there are situations in which people just cannot afford to keep their homes, and a foreclosure or a short sale results,” said 2009 NAR President Charles McMillan.

    I am so glad we found you! You were the 3rd agent we listed our condo with and the only 1 who did not list and forget it! We are excited that it sold and enjoyed watching you and the new buyer's excitement at the closing table. Great job!

    Michelle has provided me with the info I needed to make good decisions about buying & selling rental property. As a new investor, I don't think I would have had the nerve to accumulate the properties that I have without her!

    With 5 corporate transfers through McLane Corp. in just 8 years, my wife & I needed someone to just "do it"! Michelle made this the easiest transition we've ever had. Needless to say when it was time to move again she listed & sold our home in record time with record ease. We've found a true friend in Georgia with this Realtor.
