About Us

 

More than a team of talented real estate professionals…

“In the fast-paced PNW Real Estate Market, you'll need a negotiations expert who's able to respond promptly to the right opportunity. But it’s more than that. For me, it's all about my clients feeling like they have been educated, empowered, and well cared for during their purchase or sale.”

ADVOCATE

 

As a full-service Realtor, Michelle’s mission is to be her clients’ fiercest advocate. This starts by ensuring they are truly heard, allowing her to accurately be a champion for their best interests. 

Whenever a decision is made, Michelle becomes an advocate for that choice, even if the client’s decision differs from her initial recommendation. Clients can expect that she will do everything in her power to execute their wishes to the smallest detail, always advocating for their best interest and working to ensure the final outcome is favorable.

EDUCATE

 

Michelle does this by educating her clients, so they feel confident that they are making an informed decision. Whether a buyer, looking for insights as they tour homes, or a seller, wanting to make the best decision on what home prep to do, clients can expect to be educated and offered data at every step of the way.

Michelle not only provides the information you want to know she ensures you understand what it all means.  

EMPOWER

 

Michelle’s focus on client education builds the foundation to empower clients to make the best decision for themselves. Her friendly and practical communication style allows Michelle to guide clients through the complicated process of real estate; letting them take on the role of driver and decider, leaving her the responsibility of being the roadmap and a fierce advocate. Michelle uses this tried-and-true strategy because she trusts her clients to know what’s best for them, they just need an expert to ensure they know the potential outcomes of each option.

 

You’re In Good Hands

Real Estate Experience

Michelle’s real estate specialty is in residential transactions, working frequently with urban, suburban, and rural properties in King, Pierce, and Snohomish counties. She also has numerous experiences helping clients in challenging moves; whether you’re relocating long-distance, welcoming a new family member into your home, or undergoing divorce, Michelle can give you the care and guidance needed for your situation. 

First-Hand Knowledge

As a full-time agent working with both buyers and sellers, Michelle has real-time knowledge of current market trends before they become public. She utilizes this knowledge to educate clients on things like offer trends, inspection terms, and privately provides unpublished prices of homes under contract. 

It’s this dedication to ensuring her clients make an informed choice that helped Michelle reach the top 10% of all U.S. Keller Williams agents in under three years and has earned her multiple Achievement Awards for her work.  

Certified Negotiator 

Michelle is certified by the Real Estate Negotiation Institute, endorsed by the National Association of Realtors, as a skilled negotiator. She has also been certified by the Veterans Association for Home Ownership in VA transactions, serving those who have served, and by the WA State Housing Finance Commission to co-lead education seminars on the process specific to the needs of her first-time buyers.

 

Michelle graduated from the University of Washington, Foster School of Business, with a focus in Marketing and Certificates in Sales and International Studies in Business. With over two decades of experience in sales and negotiations, her education and life before real estate provided her with valuable skills that she uses daily in negotiations, client education, and effective marketing.
