After graduating from the University of Southern California, Michelle became a top leasing agent in one of the largest and most prestigious residential housing developments in West Los Angeles. In 2003, an opportunity with a multi-billion-dollar national commercial builder brought her to San Diego, where she was an instrumental part of a project management team responsible for developments up to $50 million.
Michelle’s passion for architecture, planning and development is in her DNA. Her father, an entrepreneur and successful general contractor in Northern California, instilled in her the craft of residential building and remodeling when she became his mini foreman at the age of nine. She would assist her father with all phases of a project, from pre-construction design to final inspection. She was part of the family business for 16 years before making the move to Southern California permanently.
Her multi-faceted interests and creativity inspired her to become an accomplished landscape photographer. She also gains deep personal meaning from helping autistic youth and leading philanthropic work with homeless communities. Michelle loves her career in real estate because she finds deep satisfaction in working tirelessly with clients to help bring their dreams into fruition.
