I wasn’t sure what to expect in terms of a restaurant that markets itself as green. For me, it’s all about the food. So let me talk about that first, and then I can talk about the green thing. Bella Green is a healthy fast casual restaurant that serves salads, pizza, pasta, burgers, sandwiches, tacos, soup, and desserts. Recently I enjoyed an outstanding chicken sandwich — grilled all-natural chicken breast, bacon, mixed greens, tomato, house-made pickles, onion, avocado, swiss cheese, mango ranch dressing, and served on a whole-wheat bun. That mango ranch dressing made the sandwich. And the pickles added an outstanding zing. They have an awesome selection of burgers, including veggie, beef, turkey and lamb. The sweet potato fries are fantastic and what I suggest as an accompaniment. They sell lots of salads all day long and they are excellent. The honey fried goat cheese with arugula is my favorite and the curry chicken is also different and exotic. The salads are my number one recommendation here. Servings are big so make sure you take one of their ecofriendly to go boxes. If you want pasta or comfort food, the quinoa mac n cheese is a guilt free bowl of gooey comfort. The spicy veggie pasta is also amazing and the spice warms you all over. They have a very eclectic mix of soft drinks and a good beer and wine selection. The clincher for dining at Bella Green is that it has the BEST patio in The Woodlands. It has a welcoming relaxing ambience that makes me think I’m in a different country. It is surrounded by trees and bushes so it is quiet and serene. Now to the green part. They aren’t talking about green food like lettuce. The web site says the following: “Our eco-conscious restaurants are low impact spaces that are good for the earth. We tread lightly. Accommodating different dietary needs is something we stand by, so each individual can enjoy finer dining at an affordable price. From using water-saving devices to alternate power sources, our green practices keep us in harmony with the environment.” They even have a place to park your electric car in front. So if you like being nice to the environment and want good food on a great patio, head over to Bella Green.
Leslie Flory is an excellent realtor. She helped us get our house ready for the market and we had a great offer within 24 hours. I would highly recommend her to anyone trying to buy or sell a house.
Ammar and Jamila Yamani
A pleasure to work with. Very knowledgeable about the area and a always provided insight beyond what we saw at first glance. Received her information as a referral from a friend, and would not hesitate to refer her to again.
Michele Flory was a joy to work with. She and her office were all very professional. We were impressed by the quality of the marketing of the house (photos and video). We also appreciated that she was a problem solver and handled situations before they became a problem. We can recommend her without hesitation.
I had a great experience working with my Realtor. I will recommend her to friends and family in the future. 🙂
Michele is simply the best! She not only sold our current Woodlands home, but found us a beautiful home to buy. Her knowledge of The Woodlands is extensive and she thinks of every detail on both ends of the buying and selling process. Her staff is super helpful as well. I have nothing but good things to say about her! If we ever buy/sell again she’s the first person we will call! Amazing!!!!!
Leslie Flory was the realtor I worked with to find my home; and it was the absolute BEST experience I have ever had in dealing with real estate. She helped customize my home search to meet my specific needs and was available any day to answer any and all questions I had. She is a tough negotiator and always looks out for the best interest of her clients. Some realtors lead you down the wrong path or will try to be pushy, or have a hard time understanding your goals; Leslie was the complete opposite. She helped me pick out my new home, showed me a plethora of comps; and even gave me suggestions to update the home’s outdated finishes! I highly recommend contacting her if you are looking for a realtor who will help you whenever you need and will make sure the experience of buying or selling a home is exciting and painless for you. I can’t thank her enough for all her hard work and effort and will definitely work with her again in the future. I actually used her many years ago to purchase my home in the Woodlands and even then she exceeded all my expectations and was far superior to agents I had worked with prior.
Leslie Flory was my realtor. She was professional, even when the buyers were difficult. She was pro-active and detailed oriented. She made sure that all my questions were answered right away. I highly recommend Leslie Flory. You will be highly pleased with her work ethic and her professionalism, and the ability to get top price for your home.
Leslie was absolutely wonderful throughout the whole process both in quickly understanding what I wanted during the purchase and then thru the leasing process. It was great experience working with Leslie. Would highly recommend her.
What a wonderful experience! Leslie was able to quickly find the perfect home for me and my two daughters in a wonderful neighborhood. Her knowledge of the area, attention to detail, and very helpful recommendations made the entire experience very pleasant. Further, she really went the extra mile for me. I travel often for work and was out of country for two weeks in a row just before closing, the assistance she provided during that time made a big difference. It took a huge weight off my shoulders knowing that I had such an amazing realtor in my corner. I honestly can’t thank Leslie enough for all that she has done for me and my family!
Alex and Michelle Svetlitski
Michele and her team are very professional and dependable! Michele knows every step of the construction process and knows to ask for things we wouldn’t think of. She’s always one step ahead of the builder! Michele has helped our family with several transactions and is the only realtor in town we would trust!
Leslie did a fantastic job. We were very impressed with her and her skills. I wish the buyer had an agent equal to Leslie. It would have gone much smoother for them!
Bill and Marilyn Mohl
I would work with Michele all over again. Very professional, knowledgeable and always had our best interest at hand.
Barclay and Maria Macaul
Michelle was so involved and committed to finding the house that we wanted as though she was purchasing the house for herself. She researched every aspect (history, neighborhood, records) of any home that had potential. Because she has been a realtor in The Woodlands for so many years she is a treasure chest of information. When she walked through a house with us she had an eagles eye for every detail. She has the patience of a Saint. In the end all she really wants is to find you the home that is right for you.
I was really impressed with Leslie’s professional attitude and knowledge during the sale of my home She was very detailed oriented and kept me updated daily with the ongoing process – from listing to closing. I would definitely recommend her to friends and family who are looking for a very competent realtor!
Alex and Michelle Svetlitski
Michele is a true professional. THE best in town hands down. We have worked with her 4x as both a buyer and seller and every experience Has been outstanding!
Steve and Linda Hester
Steve and myself cannot say enough about our experience with both the selling and purchasing of our properties. The patience, support and knowledge shown by Michele Flory and Company was first class. We have already recommended them to business associates and personal friends. We will definitely be using them again in the future
Scott and Danessa Sharp
Best possible everything regarding Michele Flory. There has been nothing lacking in any way. I’ve recommended her to people who already have a realtor with whom they’re happy.
Robert and Mary-Louise D.
Michele Flory is a fantastic realtor! She spent a lot of time with me before I came to the Woodlands to start looking for a house. Michele narrowed down my choices and we saw 26 homes in two days. I ended up buying one of the homes that we saw on our first day of showings. It was a pleasure working with Michele and I highly recommend her!
Rudy and Celia Maeda
We have to say that Michele Flory, was absolutely the greatest, most knowledgeable real estate person, that I have ever known and dealt with. Please do every federal employee or customer, or a family member, transferring to the Houston a huge favor, assign Ms. Flory as your #1 pick for assistance. I can’t say enough of this wonderful and thoughtful person who was looking out for our best interest in every step of the process.
Trevor and Karen R.
Michele Flory is an exceptional realtor. She went above and beyond our expectations and is truly a model for other realtors to follow. We have recommended her to our friends without hesitation.
Bob and Sherry M.
Great job!! Offer in less than 24 hrs and completed sale in 1 month!! Way to go!! Thanks!!
Stephen and Sonya B.
Michele and her staff are true professionals. This is our second experience with her and she gives such personal service and attention that you feel you are her only client. Every detail is taken care of–nothing overlooked! She has the knowledge that comes from years of experience, which is greatly appreciated in this market! Thank you, Michele!
Thilo and Claudia Von Trotha
Michele Flory is the best realtor we ever have had. If there would be ten stars I would have given for all ratings 10 stars to her. I and wife highly appreciated the business with her.
Vasilis and Courtney M.
Michele is a great agent, she understands the market place and will go the extra mile for you to find and purchase your dream home.
Abhay and Joey Singh
Leslie Flory was very professional, courteous and extremely knowledgeable of the market. She was always available to answer any questions I had – something that I can’t thank her enough for. I am looking forward to work with her again in future. Kudos.
Michele was always on time, professional, helpful, patient, exact in her direction, strong, and tough when needed. She was insightful, provided advice, knew when to push back and when to hold steady. For someone who had not gone through this process in a very long time, she helped me understand the new world of realty, and walked me through each phase. I loved working with Michele, and will call her when time to sell the Bedford house. Greatly appreciate her.
Michael & Susann P.
Leslie, you are amazing. Michael and I have worked with many realtors in our 21 years together and we have never had anyone so thorough, professional and nice as you and your parents. We can’t wait to send business your way as more United Airlines people move to Houston. You are simply the best. Thank you for all you do.
Luis and Carolina F.
I am extremely pleased to have found Michele. A friend recommended her to us, and boy she was right! She was always there for us, any day, anytime. She answered all our questions and doubts and guided us during the whole buying process impeccably. Her knowledge of the market, houses and process amazes me. In sum, I’m 100% sure that if you are buying (or selling) a home, you’d be much better off with Michele on your side. I would recommend her highly to anyone looking in The Woodlands area.
Kelly and Ignacio Gonzales
Leslie, You were fantastic from start to finish. I knew you would be and that is why I used your services for a second time! Being out of country can be a daunting task and you handled everything wonderfully. Thank you for handling my designated family members so graciously and keeping them always informed. Take care and if we ever need to buy or sell a home in The Woodlands, you have our business! Ignacio & Kelly Gonzalez
Dan and Dusty K.
Michele’s knowledge of The Woodlands was a huge asset to us when buying our house. She handled our transaction extremely well from beginning to end. Her work ethic is amazing. We couldn’t have asked for a better realtor. We would recommend her to our closest of friends.
Steve and Leah Jones
Michele is such a wonderful realtor to work with. She’s honest, detailed,provides great insights/knowledge/feedback, available, and kind. We had a great first time home buying experience with Michele!
Dave and Yian V.
Michele Flory is nothing short of outstanding. She stayed with my need to sell my home over 11 months and was an invaluable consultant regarding how to market our home. Many realtors would have said “cut the price”. Not Michele – she was determined to help us get the maximum price the market could support. I highly recommend her without reservation.
Bev and Chuck Parker
The service provided by Leslie Flory and the team at Michele Flory and Company was exceptional. I have bought and sold a number of properties in two countries over the years and dealt with a number of different realtors. Leslie was by far the most informative of everything we needed to know, marketed our property better than any other realtor we had used in the past, was very patient and supportive during what is usually a very stressful time (sale of a home) and we do not hesitate in the least in supporting Leslie Flory as an exceptional choice of realtor to assist anyone with either a buying or selling transaction.
Michele Flory is not only my realtor, she became my friend. As an absentee buyer, she went beyond wha is expected of a realtor. I have already recommended her to friends of mine. She has now listed their house.
Derek and Amanda D.
Michele Flory was the best realtor anyone could every ask for. She went over and beyond the call of duty. It was a pleasure to do business with her.
Larry and Judy K.
Experience exceeded our expectations. Michele was professional, well versed in options and locations, atuned to our taste and budget, and able to work within our very limited time frame. We were pleased from our first meeting until closing day with her attention to detail. She even made courtesy phone calls after our move-in to offer additional services.
Don and Anne D.
Excellent realtor with great people skills. Great team who showed why they are, in my opinion, the best in The Woodlands. I would recommend them to any potential clients.
Alex and Michelle S.
I’ve worked with Michele twice as a buyer and seller, and I have never met anyone who was as professional and knowledgeable! She is without a doubt the best realtor in the Woodlands. She will make sure your home is in perfect condition to sell for top dollar and as a buyer, she will make suggestions for an offer, show you the flaws in a property, and negotiate for you based on facts. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone!
Jonas & Sarah E.
Michele flory was amazing!..i am 34 and have sold 5 houses already in my life…and i have bought 5 too!..ahahha!… she was by far the best realtor i have ever had…and now i do see the need for them. i would not hesitate to recommend her to everyone i know…and would use her again in a heartbeat!
Stephen & Sonya B.
We were spoiled! Michele kept us updated constantly on the process. We feel she is our advocate in the selling and buying process. We’ll never use anyone but Michele! Thank you.
Michele Flory has a professional approach to listing and selling a home. I could not ask for more. Michele and her team approach was to sell my home in a timely manner; not just list it. She was constantly checking the activity of other listings that was our competition, making adjustments and suggestions as the market dictated. The home was sold; the process was smooth. Michele and her team exceeded my expectations.
Steven and Lauren W.
Michele and her staff were extremely professional, thorough, and helpful. They were conscientious of our urgency and got our home marketed quickly. We will definitely recommend them to friends in the area.
Chuck and Bev P.
As a newcomer to the USA, we were rather unfamiliar with the real estate process. Leslie explained everything and had recommendations for banks, insurers, inspectors, and more. The process was much more enjoyable than any other!
Nel and Dennis S.
It was our first time selling and buying a house. Initially we had decided we would search for our new home ourselves. In the process of “just looking”, we met Lupita Padilla. After visiting with her a couple times, who realized that the “doing it ourselves” concept had changed and it included Lupita in our search of options. Lupita is not only our agent; but she showed true commitment through her unconditional support, availability and professionalism. Lupita is very proactive, smart, and financially savvy young mind that will help you like she helped us. Her ability to listen to her customers is number one. She is a person that will walk the extra mile. We are glad to have met you Lupita in our journey!
Michele and her Team did a wonderful job in a quick time frame for us. Our house was on the market for several months before Michele started helping us out. She did good research in the neighborhood to see what our competition was and ensure we had the house set for showing the best we could. Excellent communication throughout the entire process to the end and felt as if she was in our court Personally to help us with the sale. Not one bad thing to say. Great Job.
Michele is an outstanding agent, and has worked with me on several sales and/or purchases.
Brian and Mariel Schiller
Michele and her team were amazing to work with. This was our first home purchasing experience, and they made it easy, always made us feel comfortable, and always kept our best interests in mind.
Michele Flory sold our home in a month, after it sat on the market for more than a year, with another realtor. Michele recommended some minor changes, including furniture staging, which we believe made the difference. She communicated with us at all times during the process. I would recommend Michele without qualification to anyone wanting to deal with a professional realtor.
Nate & Staci D
Leslie was patient and helpful through the entire process and continues to help us out with referrals …She has been great
Our agent, Leslie, was the ideal Realtor. All our questions were answered the same day, always within an hour! We were always in the loop with excellent communication. Now that we have completed our home purchase, Leslie is still in touch; I am confident I can go to her with any questions. Any future Realtor needs will be taken to Leslie Flory.
Hunter & Kate W.
First home-buying experience! Thank you for making it so easy!
This was without a doubt the most efficient and professional experience we have had with assistance in selling our property. We have purchased and sold eight homes and no other experience can compare with our experience with Michele and her team.
Steve, Bri and Sam
Both Bri and I want you to know that one thing we are particularly thankful for this year is to have a home. This home has been a great blessing in our life as we establish our roots and foster Sam’s growth. You were instrumental in making it possible for us to purchase this home, and for that we are thankful for you and all you do.
Shilpa & Kedar V.
Michele was able to understand my taste in a house very quickly and helped me find my ideal home. She gave her fair assessment of each house and convinced and helped me to outbid the other party in this crazy Woodlands market where bidding wars are still happening.
I can’t begin to express what your efforts and support through my home selling and buying process has meant to me. Each of you have helped make the process less stressful and have been on the look-out for my best interests. For that especially, I thank each of you.
Bill & Lynn C.
We bought our home from Michele. Greg was so patient by showing my husband probably over 100 homes; no complaints from Greg about all the changing of minds about what we wanted. So when it came time to sell our home, the perfect choice was Michele. The materials she provided plus helpful suggestions helped sell our home in record time. Thanks Michele Flory and Team.
Ed & Pat C.
Our last home buying experience was 27 years ago! Michele did a great job without pressuring us. She made the whole process simple and easy.
David & Lisa S.
Michele Flory and Company is the premier team in The Woodlands. The professional stagers made a huge marketing impact on the sales price of our home. Michele’s expertise and negotiation skills are absolutely second to none, and her integrity and fairness throughout the entire process was appreciated by both buyers and sellers.
Steve & Brianna
Leslie was superb. As new home-buyers, we were unsure about how a lot of the process works. She did a great job explaining. Leslie even went out of her way to text us with updates; even after hours. We will be recommending you to others!
Michele absolutely took responsibility for selling my home! My home had been on the market for a number of months with another Realtor, and when I changed to Michele – there was a positive change immediately! She took control, had my home staged, took new pictures, and sold my home within weeks!!
Alan & Stephanie M.
This was our first home-buying experience. I would recommend Michele Flory and Company to anyone. Michele Flory and Company went out of their way numerous times to give us quality service. Thank you.
Always kind, always considerate, always keeping me informed and up-to-date. The experience with Michele Flory & Co. far surpassed any I’d ever had. From the listing to the closing and beyond (when Charlie retrieved the stuff I left), there is only my praise and gratitude for a job well done. If only I could have used them in my next move!
Brian & Michelle
There was no comparison between Michele and our Realtor in Calgary. Michele was above and beyond any expectations to help us with the process and closing of our home here in The Woodlands. Our Realtor in Calgary would be a 1/10 and Michele 10/10.
Bill & Traci
Michele is extremely knowledgeable about The Woodlands and Spring. She was helpful and accommodating to us as we were searching for our home. We were really impressed with her negotiating skills. We would definitely recommend her.
Chris & Kim
Michele and her team are great! We had a wonderful experience. Thanks for everything.
Robert & Julie
Michele was always interested and active in selling our property. Our last Realtor did not show this same interest and was only as active as we asked her to be. We have found our Realtor that we will stick with and highly recommend!
Greg & Meredith L.
Michele and her staff went the extra step for us with everything from running a check to MUD services to answering various referral questions plus being available 24/7 for our entire family! We can’t begin to thank you enough.
Aisha & Karim
Outstanding service from beginning to end of the home search. She is detail oriented and has a strong level of commitment. Her work is thorough, accurate, and complete. She is very dependable, regardless of any circumstances that arise. We highly recommend Michele for any realty needs. She will get the job done!
John & Darlene
Michele is one in a million. We would never go with another realtor. Her calm and upbeat style was always reassuring and positive during all the stages of purchasing our home, renting our home, and selling our home. As out-of-state owners, she coordinated many additional services and repairs that were needed along the way. She gave us 150% and we will never forget her for that. She’s tops, and a pleasure to work with.
David & Michelle
Great communications. Michele was very personable and was easy and enjoyable to work with. She looked out for our best interest.
Larry & Christine
No other transaction comes close to the professional service, full market knowledge and experience level of Michele Flory & Company! Doesn’t get any better.
Bob & Jacki M.
Top to bottom the experience was better than any prior dealings and that is saying a lot since this was our 13th home we’ve purchased. Our sale was a dream also – 3 days!
Over the years with Exxon, my husband and I have purchased many homes in different states and our experience with Michele and staff were by far the most professional we ever encountered. Michele always returned calls and kept us up to date.
Chris and John G.
Michele was helpful with our move from Southern California to The Woodlands, Texas. She showed us many properties, answered all our questions, if she didn’t know the answer she would look into the matter and get back to us. We were very pleased with her professionalism. Loved working with her.
Jim & Claudia
Michele and her staff were not only efficient, but also very friendly and comfortable to be around. Michele worked with me for almost a year off and on and was always interested in my issues and very knowledgeable on any of my questions. This was the first time I had worked with a realtor. We had always bought & sold ourselves. Very Personable!!
Tom & Katherine
Thorough understanding of all contracts and processes. Michele looked out for my interests as both a buyer and then ,2 years later, as a seller. Kept me informed constantly. We would highly recommend Michele and her Team!
Buying a home long distance is no easy task. Where does one start? Living in Orlando and thinking about relocating to The Woodlands, we started a web search and found Michele Flory’s rather extensive site. Replete with many links, it was truly one stop shopping for all the info we needed about the community, housing, recreation, etc. Sending an email triggered an almost immediate response via email followed by a phone call. Next was the task of a trip to Houston to look at property. Armed with our requirements, Michele met us with an outstanding number of choices all fitting exactly what we outlined. The prepared folder on each and every home contained complete and thorough information needed to make a choice. Although she had done exactly as asked, we could not find a home that was just “perfect”. Thus, we started an almost weekly trek from Orlando to The Woodlands to look at different property. Each time Michele had a folder for each home containing colored photos, descriptive wording, tax info, etc. It took us five trips to Houston and hundreds of miles on Michele s car (not to mention the time she spent with us) to make a decision on a home we purchased in June. To us, it seemed that we were Michele’s only clients. The entire time Michele was friendly; never mentioning the huge amount of time she was spending with us. She was frank about pricing, vocal about certain neighborhoods, and quite emphatic to see us get what we were paying for. We have never met a person more dedicated and knowledgeable about the market than Michele. Never pushy, always honest, and never trying to “steer” us in a specific direction. Once we decided on a home, Michele took over all the negotiations as we traveled back to Orlando. Each day we would receive an update on where we were, what to expect and when to expect it. Closing was the easiest we have ever had in the 8 times we have purchased homes. I can honestly say that it was Michele and her demeanor that convinced us to move here. She was honest, truly caring about our needs, frank when she needed to be, and probably the best Realtor in The Woodlands. If we ever decide to move away, Michele will be our agent. She is truly remarkable and was a godsend in helping us choose our final retirement home.
Paul & Millie
Michele and Greg were truly wonderful to work with. They were always on top of things. Whenever we needed something, it was taken care of immediately. We are already recommending them to our friends.
Michele was outstanding. She was above and beyond the call of duty. As a first-time homeowner, I was basically clueless to all of the steps and preparation involved in the process. She answered all of my questions promptly and accurately. She made herself readily available for all of my inquiries. What could have been a slow painful process, my home buying experience was pleasurable and educational. I credit this to Michele Flory.
Michele was wonderful. She spent many long hours helping me find the home for me. She was patient and persistent. I never felt any pressure from Michele at all to buy. After closing, Michele was still there for me to answer questions. She is such a positive, upbeat person. I not only consider Michele my realtor, but also my friend!
Thanks for all of your help and extra effort in the sale of our condo at Bay Branch. You went above and beyond the call of duty many times and I appreciate your extra effort. I’ll look forward to working with you again down the road as my housing needs change. Thanks again.
Michele was very knowledgeable of the areas that she showed me. She was helpful in finding the right house for me at the right time. She went out of her way on a very busy weekend to make sure that I was able to get this house. I was very pleased with her professional manner.
Deb & John
John and I want to thank you for everything you’ve done for us. We took up so much of your time this past month-yet, you always made time for us with that beautiful smile on your face!! You never made us feel bad-but we know we were pretty demanding. Michele, you really made this whole move a very positive experience for us-we could never thank you enough. And we do look forward to staying on touch and the beginning of a wonderful friendship!
Greg & Melinda
Just wanted to thank you one more time for everything you have done for us the past 2 years while we searched for and purchased our new home, as well as sell the old one. You have definitely been there through thick and thin, and have seen some crazy things happen, but we want you to know that without a doubt you have been the best realtor we have ever had. Your prompt attention to details and our (very often!) requests has been unmatched. Along the way, you and Greg have become nice friends as well. We know just who to recommend to our friends, and will be happy to do so. And whenever we have more real estate needs, we’ll be sure to call you— I’m sure we all hope that won’t be too soon, though!
Shazia & Adnan
Thank you very much for all your patience and advice in finding our house.
Stephen & Sonya B.
She is the only realtor we will ever use—incredible service & communication!
Jim & Michelle D.
Michele is very knowledgeable not only about the process but about the community. She utilizes a professional team and we HAVE recommended her to several people.
Harry and Janet P.
Michele is awesome…patience beyond belief 🙂
Jorge and Adriana M.
Michele was exceptional
Chris and Janice Grahek
One word describes Michele Flory and Company, “Professional”! They assisted us with the sale of one home and the purchase of another. They were very helpful every step of the way.
Chris and Sandra Diaz
Michele Flory best real estate agent I have ever worked with a true professional agent. I highly recommend Michele; she is extremely knowledgeable about The Woodlands market and was very patience when showing us homes. Michele is very persistence agent when it comes to negotiating the best deal for you; I was very impressed with her negotiating skills and her attention to detail.
