Born and raised in San Francisco, Michelle admires the city’s architecture and real estate--even from a young age. After purchasing her first multi-unit property in 1998, she realized her passion and set out to pursue a career in real estate. Before real estate, Michelle spent several years working in the fast-paced world of film and television. This business required quick decision-making skills and the ability to keep calm under pressure, which has carried over seamlessly to her career as an agent.
A graduate of San Francisco State University, Michelle enjoys studying Spanish, traveling, equestrian shows with her daughter, hiking Bay Area trails, watching films, and exploring new restaurants. She devotes her time and resources to 826 Valencia, Operation Rainbow, and MeWater Foundation.
