I grew up in Brooklyn, lived in Manhattan, attended SUNY Albany and Syracuse Law School. As a native New Yorker I never expected to live in New Jersey. My husband and I moved to Montclair from NYC when we decided to start a family. Somewhat reluctant to leave NYC we discovered Montclair. The Montclair Art Museum, Montclair University, the shopping and restaurants made us feel at home. From the moment we moved here we knew we made the right decision! I love Montclair because of the tight knit community along with all the conveniences of a cosmopolitan city.
As a resident of Montclair for 15 years as well as a realtor, I understand that buying or selling a home is more than just a transaction: it’s a life-changing experience. That’s why I am dedicated to providing exceptional, personalized service to my clients. I take great pride in the relationships I build and always work relentlessly on my client’s behalf to help them achieve their real estate goals.
I strive to lead the field in research, innovation, and consumer education. Today’s buyers and sellers need a trusted resource that can guide them through the complex world of real estate. My clients come first! I communicate with my clients to keep them fully informed throughout the entire buying or selling process. My goals are to leave my clients with an amazing experience and customer satisfaction.

Michelle made our home sale process as stress free as it could be. From start to finish, she made sure we were positioned to get the maximum value for our home. The suggestions for improvements were realistic and by following her lead, we were able to sell in one weekend for well over asking price! She is a Montclair expert with many local contacts that helped us stage and close quickly. In addition, Michelle is genuine and direct which I very much appreciated. I highly recommend Michelle and would absolutely work with her again should we ever move back to Montclair. She is the best!

We were a NYC couple trying to get into the outskirts of the city, looking for places with easy transit to city. We approached Michelle with our priority list and she was very happy to work with us in finding the right match. . Being a first time home buyer we were not aware of the process and she helped us to navigate the process with ease. Her local knowledge is unparalleled and her first hand connection with other real estate peers gives you an added advantage. We are so happy that we had Michelle as our agent in buying our first home. She is thoroughly professional and ensures you have a smooth buying experience.

Michelle helped us find our dream home during the pandemic for my relocation. We were living in MA while Michelle coordinated all the viewing, bidding, inspection etc. in NJ. Not only her professional knowledge and years of expertise really made our home hunting hassle free, she helped us find and bid the perfect home in the pandemic market. The home we currently live in is the second home we viewed and the only property we bid on and the whole process finished in 2 month! There is no way we could've done this so efficiently without Michelle.

We bought our first home with Michelle and had a great experience. She was very knowledgeable about the area we were looking in and always sent over listings as soon as they came on the market that she knew we would be interested in.

I've known Michelle for over 4 years when she assisted us in finding a home to rent. We were a young couple with a dream to buy a house later in life. Now, in 2020, during a pandemic we reconnected with Michelle to purchase our home for our growing family. She was very patient and not pushy. She was flexible and willing to meet at times convenient to us. She even made accommodations to show the properties to my husband and I separately when our times didn't work as a couple. She also showed us properties multiple times without complaints. She is very knowledgeable about homes, and even advised us to ask certain questions that ended up being key factors why we didn't bid on a home or proceed the process. A process which she fully explained before and throughout. She wanted us to be comfortable with our decision on a home that we would watch our children grow. I'm happy to say we found a beautiful home that my husband, four year old and I love. She was present throughout the process and gave excellent advise and recommendations. She is one to get on your team when buying a forever home!

When it comes to real estate agents, I am picky. My husband and I have shopped for and bought three homes in the NYC area over the course of the last decade, and we have sold two. We've met and worked with many real estate brokers. So, when I say that Michelle Schwartz-Clement is the most professional, efficient, and helpful real estate agent we have had the pleasure of working with-- I mean it. I've done my research, and I know that Michelle is great at what she does. I think it helps that she is an experienced lawyer. The market in Essex County, NJ is absolutely insane right now, but Michelle helped us to negotiate all of the factors-- including selling at the same time-- and to buy our dream home much more quickly and easily than I imagined possible. If it were not for her, we would have missed the opportunity of a lifetime. If you are looking for someone who can help you find your next home in NJ, look no further-- Michelle rocks, as we said in the 90s!

Michelle is simply the best. We approached her to figure out what to do with a property when trying to decide whether to sell, rent, etc. She provided flawless service and professional advice and was exceptionally responsive to questions, issues and whatever came up. She found a buyer in a very short time and worked to make everything come true for me. I could not recommend anyone higher than I recommend Michelle if you need a good realtor.
