With undergraduate degrees from Wharton and the college at the University of Pennsylvania and a Masters in Business from Columbia University, Michelle's appetite for deal-making is well known. Prior to her MBA at Columbia, Michelle worked in Manhattan's elite financial institutions focused on mergers and acquisitions and commercial real estate transactions at JP Morgan and Angelo, Gordon. She believes real estate perfectly marries her passions for architecture, business and connecting people.
Michelle enjoys balancing both Buyer and Seller support services to her clients, exploring new neighborhoods for her buyers and marketing property for her sellers. Her broad business experience in competitive markets allows her to transform the stressful, and sometimes exhausting process, into one that is as enjoyable and successful as possible.
Having lived in London, Houston, Philadelphia, New York and Los Angeles, Michelle brings experience from a wide variety of markets. Plus, she knows well the challenges of moving! Arriving in LA with a 2 year old in tow and 6 months pregnant, Michelle had to hit the ground running. Getting the whole family settled here taught her the challenges local clients face and how best to help them navigate their overall process.
Apart from real estate, she is a wife and proud mom of two boys and two dogs. Her dedication to martial arts led to a black belt in karate. She also loves skiing, especially in Mammoth, hiking, tennis and exercise of all forms. Cooking and entertaining are her fun pursuits, while travel and quality family time are musts.
