Michelle Liberman would like to welcome you to the beach communities of Los Angeles. Michelle is a transplant herself and understands what’s involved when picking a new home and community. Michelle moved to Santa Monica eighteen years ago from New York City, where she worked as a national sales manager in the fast paced garment district. Michelle studied at the University of Oneonta, and graduated with a BS in Business Economics.
She now has three beautiful children in the Santa Monica Public School system. Bringing her straightforward Brooklyn persona and her natural talent for business negotiation, Michelle has joined the Compass team specializing in the Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica and Brentwood markets. One of her goals is to be a role model for her children and show that a successful mother can be a strong business woman too. Because of Michelle's longstanding ties within the Santa Monica community, she is especially passionate about connecting people with homes in her community.
What My Clients Say
"Michelle is hands down the most patient, knowledgeable, skilled, and thoughtful agent out there. Michelle stood by our sides through a very long real estate journey and never once made us feel bad for being picky on location, price, and the type of house we were seeking. Michelle has wonderful relationships with several of the listing agents that we encountered, which makes the home buying process much more pleasant. At the same time, she is a fierce negotiator and worked hard and successfully to get us desirable terms. She also proposes creative solutions to the imperfect houses we saw in our price range. We are so pleased with our experience with Michelle that we now consider her a close friend." Lara Leitner
"Michelle was our agent in both the purchase of our new home and the sale of our existing home. She was highly recommended by one of our friends. She was very attentive to our real estate needs. She listened to our likes and dislikes and worked very hard to find a home within our budget. She was responsive and communicated well. She was a tenacious advocate and was not afraid to negotiate on our behalf. She provided us with sound advice without being pushy and kept us in the loop every step of the way. Basically, Michelle is a straight shooter, well-versed in negotiating tough deals, and well-connected in the North of Montana neighborhood. It was a true pleasure working with her and we would highly recommend her to our friends and family. " Mina Sedrak
I worked with Michelle on purchasing a home for my family in Santa Monica. It was a multi-year process that involved patience early in the process and pandemic-related complexities during closing. I'm probably not the easiest to work with, but she did an amazing job throughout and I highly recommend her. Local knowledge: she lives here, knows the area very well, and offers great insights for families with young children. Communication: excellent, very responsive, follows up on literally everything. Process: we bought a fixer-upper, which comes with a surprising amount of red tape and process nuances. Michelle is a problem solver and provided sound advice throughout. Negotiation: we closed during the pandemic after two price reductions. She understood my concerns and represented my interests throughout closing and after (during 2-month leaseback to the seller).
Working with Michelle was AMAZING! We had our condo listed with another agent and got 0 offers in six months. After 1 week Michelle got us MULTIPLE offers! We were not in the area and Michelle handled everything for us. She made the process simple and easy! I always felt like we had her full attention and never worried about anything!
It’s rare that you come across standout talent like Michelle. Michelle is responsive, hard-working, and flawlessly balances strategic vision with detail-oriented execution. She is a true pro. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Michelle on both the buy and sell sides. The common thread on every transaction is that she delivers as promised, always finding a way to move deals forward - and always with a positive attitude. Her enthusiasm to tackle problems and craft innovative solutions seems to have no limit. I am constantly impressed by her ability to connect and work with with people from all walks of life: moms, contractors, grandparents, lawyers, appraisers, you name it. Whether it’s a casual afternoon coffee meeting or a high-stakes deal deadline, being around Michelle is enjoyable. She is amazing and I recommend her with complete confidence.
Michelle is what you are looking for in a realtor. She’s savvy in the West LA market and she’s direct in her communication. She makes herself available and she will pick up when you call. And she puts the focus on long term repeatable relationships with her clients. That’s why after buying my first home with her we went right back to her to buy our second home. I’m glad we did because she was an integral part of getting the deal done, which had a complex 1031 exchange element to it. I highly recommend her to all my friends and family.
Michelle was a professional from beginning to end. She knew her stuff and was always quick to respond to our constant stream of questions. She was so easy (we didn't feel pressured at all) but yet we had strong representation on our side. We got the place of our dreams - thank you Michelle!!
Michelle is a consummate professional. Her honesty, valuable insight, and unwavering patience were exactly what I needed when I was selling my home. Even when I was stressed out about timelines and contingencies, Michelle unwaveringly maintained her role as the voice of reason. She carefully explained every part of the process, making herself available to me whenever I needed her, despite the fact that she had multiple properties in escrow at the same time. Michelle is smart, confident, and highly knowledgeable - everything you could ask for in an agent. I highly recommend her.
Michelle helped us buy our first home and expertly guided us through this often stressful and overwhelming process. She was extremely patient with us, working hard to find something in our price range, which took quite a while, and then immediately hurrying up to close the sale before our first child arrived. She helped us strategize how to get a good price and get our offer accepted, and then worked hard with us to carefully scrutinize the property during escrow. She always had time to take our calls, answer our texts, and show up in person. Overall we're happy homeowners, and we thank Michelle for helping us through the process!
Michelle recently helped my wife and I purchase a condo in Santa Monica. It was our first home purchase and Michelle was extremely helpful throughout the process. She was very responsive to all of our questions and assisted us greatly in the process.
