“She treats you as if you were her ONLY client and I know that's not the case. It was a joy working with Michelle and I would highly recommend her.” - A Happy Orinda Seller

When Michelle moved to Moraga in 1978, there was a bowling alley, a Jack in the Box, and not much else. She grew up swimming at Campolindo Cabana Club and attending the local schools. Some things have changed in Lamorinda since then, but so much hasn’t, which is what makes it such a magical place to live and why Michelle wanted to raise her own kids there – the great public schools, tree-lined streets, and tight-knit community.

Michelle’s real estate career began in 2003 and she has always focused solely on Lamorinda (Lafayette, Moraga, Orinda), Walnut Creek, Pleasant Hill and Alamo, allowing her to be hyper-local and up-to-date on what is happening in the markets she serves. Michelle’s goal is to bring to every transaction an exceptional level of local area knowledge, marketing expertise, well-honed negotiating skills, attention to detail, and care and compassion for her clients. From an efficient staff, to use of leading-edge technology, and an established reputation with other agents, Michelle works hard to ensure smooth transactions and handles all the details big and small.

Michelle lives in Orinda with her husband, two sons, and their Lakeland Terrier, Teddy. She has been actively involved in the local schools, serving as co-chair of Glorietta Elementary School Diverse Ability Awareness Week and as a lunchroom volunteer at OIS. In 2020, Michelle created the Local Giving Project to donate money from each transaction to charitable organizations. Since then, she has donated more than $35,000 on behalf of her clients.

When not at work, Michelle enjoys tennis, traveling with her family, and walking her feisty Lakeland Terrier around the neighborhood.
