Micha Knowles has been a multi-million dollar and sales volume leader for ERA American since she came on board in 2000. A veteran on the Emerald Coast’s hospitality industry, she offers her clients great customer service, attention to detail, and the most up to date information about local and national real estate trends.
Since 2009, Micha has been a regional leader in REO, distressed properties, and short sales. With this very specific skill set and client, she works with multiple title companies to manage the complexities of selling a bank owned property. As the REALTOR®, Micha is responsible for working with the current occupants to relocate, identifying any needed repairs or renovations, initiating the construction or remodeling, managing subcontractors and craftsman, and marketing the property. A self-described “control freak”, she enjoys the challenges of overhauling a property and getting it ready for the market. If you are interested in a REO property, Micha Knowles will work as your agent and your advocate to resolve any issues or problems.
Micha works extensively with Freddie Mac’s HOMESTEPS program, which gives her the most up to date listings from Destin to Panama City. She has cultivated a network of other agents, contractors, attorneys, and managers to market and sell these distressed or bank owned properties. Technologically savvy, this agent depends upon her laptop and smart phone to create customized marketing plans which are based upon very specific and in-depth market analysis. She documents the progress of each property and provides customers with before and after photos, virtual tours, and extensive lists of what work has been completed.
REALTORS® who work in the distressed property market have a unique set of skills and experiences. They must be incredibly patient, as they are often working for more than one lender or title holder, exceptionally organized, as they are dealing with a number of contractors and other professionals, and extremely motivated, as they make these home marketable and competitive. Micha Knowles has all these characteristics- and she is recognized as the leader and trend setter in this area for Northwest Florida. If you are interested in a distressed or bank owned property, let Micha put her skills, her expertise, and her network to work for you.
