Native to New England, Michelle graduated from Wittenberg University in Ohio with degrees in Psychology and History. After college, Michelle headed West ‘just for the summer’ and as so many others have done, she instantly fell in love with Santa Barbara and the California lifestyle and has never left. It was here that she began a career in retail management developing a broad based business background. Opportunity came her way and after nearly 20 years, she departed from her highly rewarding and high profile positions and turned her attention to Real Estate. This transition was natural as she was able to use her corporate background rich in sales and management to offer solid experienced-based business acumen, sharp negotiation skills and a high level of professionalism to her clients.
Now, as a Santa Barbara resident for over three decades Michelle has become a well respected and successful Realtor who brings an in-depth knowledge of the area, its services, neighborhoods, schools and its people. She is a consistent top producing agent in the Santa Barbara area and has enjoyed sustained success ranking in the top 1% of agents nationwide and locally. With 20 years of knowledge and proven results, she is the consummate professional. Driven by her integrity and enthusiasm, she repeatedly delivers a concierge level of service and has built an impressive referral based portfolio of loyal clients. She prides herself on the relationships she builds and maintains with her clients and finds herself representing them repeatedly on their home purchases and sales. She has recently expanded her reach to represent buyers and sellers in Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley.
Always keeping her mind on ways to give her clients the best experience, Michelle is proud to be associated with Compass, an innovative brokerage bringing fresh ideas to the world of real estate.
Michelle is a member of the National Association of Realtors, California Association of Realtors, Santa Barbara Association of Realtors, Santa Barbara Multiple Listing Services and Santa Ynez Multiple Listing Services. She has also recently expanded her reach to represent buyers and sellers in the Coachella Valley.
