A Nashville resident for more than two decades, Michelle has seen the city’s amazing transformation firsthand, and she brings a passion for the city to everything she does. Focusing on the urban core, Michelle truly believes that there’s a community here to fit every buyer’s personality, lifestyle and pace. And among sellers, she’s known for her ability to maximize value with a keen eye for branding and staging.

They are responsive and thorough throughout every home search or sale, and their devoted service has enabled them to reach a record-breaking $25 million in transactions in 2018.
Prior to real estate, Michelle was a territory manager for an industrial chemical company, but she left corporate life behind, inspired to enhanced neighborhoods through development. Recruited by a top developer, Michelle served as a sales and marketing director responsible for launching impressive Nashville luxury high-rises. In those roles she also honed her ability to close a large volume of business, execute high-level marketing campaigns and work closely with buyers at all experience levels.
Originally from California, Michelle grew up an Air Force brat and counts her current residence as the 25th home she’s lived in — making real estate her ideal occupation. Over her 20-plus years in Nashville, she’s experienced a wide range of neighborhoods and living experiences — from a 1920’s Victorian near Five Points to her current home in Williamson County’s new Westhaven neighborhood. Her nomadic spirit takes her on frequent trips to visit family across the country, while at home, her full and happy home includes her fiancé, their four children, an old dog and a fat cat.
