Michelle is a third-generation Peninsula native—born in San Francisco, growing up in Atherton and living and raising her children in Palo Alto. She's passionate in everything she does. When she's not working for her clients, she loves to entertain for friends and family and to hike with her three foxhounds.
Michelle puts people first. After getting to know her clients, she uses her native knowledge to make sure that her sellers convey the special aspects of their home to get the absolute best price, and that her buyers get the right house for them with the greatest appreciation potential. Her ten years of experience in commercial construction and interior design are invaluable in estimating costs and advising about remodeling projects or new construction. She's available throughout the process to help her clients with every challenge they may face.
Her enthusiasm for her job and her clients is obvious in everything she does. Over the years, Michelle has built a strong reputation among her fellow agents, which enables her to advocate for her clients and get deals done. Her clients love her knowledge about all aspects of construction, as well as her responsiveness and well-honed negotiation skills.
In addition to her extreme local real estate savvy, Michelle is developing an expertise in guiding clients to finding homes outside the Peninsula when they decide to retire or downsize. She travels to several locations each year to investigate the real estate markets there and meet with top local agents so she can provide advice and contacts for clients wishing to make a move. With trusted, familiar agents across the country, Michelle's clients are sure to find an outstanding experience wherever they choose to move.
