Hi, I'm Michelle Bouchey. I work with buyers and sellers, specializing in the Richland and Kennewick area and focusing on condos, new construction, and those clients looking to find larger spaces for their families.
Michelle Bouchey began developing her business savvy at the age of 23 when she started her own hair salon and spa. After several successful years of owning and operating her business, she transferred her energy and driven work ethic into real estate, and has been an entrepreneur for more than 23 years.
As a native to the area, Michelle possesses extensive experience about the local area and maintains long-standing working relationships with many local business owners, builders, and developers.
Michelle’s sense of humor and patience, along with her polished negotiating skills, makes her clients feel at ease during what can be a nerve-wracking process of buying and selling. Trust is hard to come by in today's fiercely competitive real estate market. Michelle is here to provide you with the professionalism and integrity needed to ensure that you feel secure in what can be one of the biggest decisions of your life.
Michelle is dependable and provides unparalleled attention to detail to every case, whether she’s working with the first time-buyer, move-up buyer, new construction home buyer, or investor. She quickly understands her client's needs and is there to offer personal attention, always keeping the client’s best interest in mind.
In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband of more than 20 years, her children, and her grandchild. She also enjoys home design, weight training, hiking, boating, and shopping.
I was looking for a home for a long time, over a year. At first I experience a different realtor which was just there for the sale. I quickly became frustrated and I was about to give up; then I asked a friend if he knew a realtor. That is when I met the most enthusiastic, warm, and knowledgeable realtor, Michelle Bouchey!!!! Michelle made my home buying experience wonderful and such a pleasure over-all.
During the entire process I never felt rushed to look at a house and make a decision; in fact I was encouraged to look at many houses. Michelle possesses an uncanny ability to read and interpret body language also. She often knew that the house we were looking at was not the right one before I vocalized it.
Michelle was patient and listened to my desires and was willing to educate and inform me throughout the process. She was there to hold my hand when I was impatient or worried about how things were going. Additionally, she went the extra mile to do the research, not only to provide me with MLS listings that met my needs, but to predict the outcome of the appraisal on the house I wanted and ultimately bought.
Any time a friend, family, or anyone else asks me about a realtor I will be referring Michelle Bouchey to them. There is absolutely no-one else I would go to for a home purchase!
I was referred to Michelle by a friend and was absolutely happy to have her as my Agent. I would recommend her to anyone that has plenty of questions about the home buying process. She is practical in her approach and cares that you find what you are looking for. She is patient and accommodating with requests and seemed to have no problem contacting the sellers with questions or just making time to show properties. Very happy with her professionalism and her encouragement. Not pushy or difficult at all. Big Thank You to Michelle, I love my new house.
Michelle goes out of her way to help you find a home. We had an erratic schedule and wanted to view homes day and night all over the Tri-Cities and Michelle was always able to accommodate us. She will work with you even if you have unique requirements for your home whether it’s an existing home or something custom built. I highly recommend Michelle as your next realtor.
My husband and I had been looking into moving for two years and had talked to three different real estate agents before utilizing Michelle Bouchey and her knowledge of the market. We had already been friends with Michelle, and as a personal friend, she was very caring and invested in us in such a positive way, we just knew that she was the right person to find us our dream house.
Our favorite thing about Michelle was that not only was she professional and knowledgeable, but she also is a great listener and understood what we wanted, not what she had in mind for us. She was intent on helping us reach our dream.Michelle is a JOY to work with, and be around. Her liveliness is infectious and once she helps you find a home, you won’t ever want to work with another agent again!
She is our one-stop shop for every real estate need we have had in the past and future. She is the best!
Michelle was very patient in helping us find our dream home. She was available at a moment’s notice to show us properties and answer our questions. We look forward to spending many years in our new home!
Thank You so so much for all your help in buying our 1st home! You Rock! I will definitely refer others to you.
We want to extend our most sincere thanks for all of your help. Your knowledge of the Tri-Cites has been a Godsend. We truly appreciate all the hard work you did for us. Your patience and sense of humor are refreshing. Thanks for sharing so much and we look forward to working with you again in the future not only as our Realtor but also as our friend.
All the best,
When it comes to knowing the Tri-Cities real estate market, no one knows it better than Michelle Bouchey. Michelle’s experience along with her passion for real estate made my home buying experience a real pleasure. Michelle took the time to understand what I needed in a home and found a home for me with the perfect mix of style, location and price. After describing to her what I was looking for, we only looked at 2 houses until she quickly understood what I wanted in a home. With limited time for me to research MLS listings and drive around town, Michelle knew which style of home would suit me best and did all the research. When I did have time to research the MLS on my own, I would suggest homes to Michelle that I was interested in. Before we even made an appointment to look at the houses that I suggested, Michelle visited the homes and, knowing my style and needs, was able to decide if those were homes I wanted to spend my limited time visiting. What a great time-saver she was for me. Rarely has a person in the field of sales taken the time to understand my needs with the desire to deliver with enthusiasm a perfect purchase for me.
I have worked with several realtors and purchased other homes in the Tri-Cities. When I’m ready to buy my next home, Michelle Bouchey is the realtor for me.
Michelle Bouchey has been a great real estate agent for me and my fiance. We have never bought a house before and didn’t know what to expect or even where to begin. Luckily we met Michelle and she helped us all the way through the whole home buying experience. We couldn’t have done it without her. She has always been there to answer any questions and has even gone out of her way to help us with whatever we needed to know about buying a home. Thanks to her, we have found a house we love and are very excited to move in. She has made everything so easy. She is a very dependable person and we are so great full for everything she has done for us.
We are so thankful to have worked with Michelle in finding and purchasing our first home. Her service and personal attention surpassed even our greatest expectations. It was easy to see from day one that Michelle had our best interest in mind. Having her represent us as a buyer’s agent left us at ease, knowing everything was in her capable hands. We were extra thankful for her diligence in keeping the ball rolling in, from what we’d heard, could be a slow moving “short-sale” scenario. Michelle helped make this process seamless and as speedy as possible. Whether you are buying or selling, we would highly recommend Michelle as your Realtor. We could not have asked for a better agent to guide us through this life changing process!
Michelle Bouchey worked very diligently and competently to help me sell a condominium in Richland, Washington over a two year period during a very difficult real estate market. I had started with a different real estate agent at a different agency, but was dissatisfied with a lack of action and a lack of communication back to me. I switched to Michelle. She immediately came over and ensured the property was presenting properly. Michelle then took photographs and a video of the property, prepared a single page listing with their photographs describing the property, and listed the property on several internet sites. She hosted numerous open houses. Michelle spoke to her professional peers and real estate brokers about the property to ensure she was approaching the sale effort as thoroughly as possible. At the end, Michelle worked with several banks to facilitate the completion of the sale. Through all of this Michelle communicated constantly with me to keep me informed (and at times to educate me).
The bottom line – would I use Michelle Bouchey again, nod would I recommend her to others. YES ! to both. Thank you,
Michelle is amazing and has done a wonderful job for us. She is quick to respond and so personable. She has been extremely knowledgeable throughout the entire process.
Michelle is an awesome agent!
Michelle has been so wonderful and I wouldn't go to another realtor if I had the choice! This is my second home I worked with her on, and she sold the first one I bought with her help. She is so patient and kind and really listens and watches reactions. She was so good at knowing when I didn't care for a place before I said anything! We are thrilled with our new house and her kind hearted ability to answer questions in such a way that a person cannot feel bad for asking! I love the way she listens and is so open. She is a true pleasure to work with on such a stressful journey! First buying this house me and my family is in now, then to help sell the house I was in.
