The Nashville market has grown exponentially over the last decade, and 20-year Nashville resident Michelle has been integral part of that evolution. She’s been in business here since 2005, completing nearly $170 million in transactions. Michelle is joined by Nashville native Amanda Gleaton — known for her enthusiasm, know-how and encyclopedic knowledge of the city’s latest and greatest attractions and Matt Hutfles — known for his people-loving personality and client services expertise.
With the Michelle Maldonado Team at their side, clients can rest assured that they are guided by collaborative partners with a genuine, heartfelt interest in their success. Michelle and Amanda understand that clients rely on them to be trusted advisors in an emotionally and financially significant undertaking, and they meet each challenge with responsive, highly qualified guidance and total integrity. That, in turn, allows clients to relax and find joy in the journey. With a shared vision for delivering impeccable expertise and service, the Michelle Maldonado Team’s extensive market knowledge and above-and-beyond work ethic lets each client know they’re in expert, caring hands.
Nashville native Amanda Gleaton is the kind of in-the-know realtor who makes every home search and sale well-informed, successful, and most of all, enjoyable. Inspired to become a Realtor after her own Nashville homebuying experience, she knows firsthand the difference a great real estate professional can make. With a reputation for always being one step ahead, Amanda has her finger on the pulse of the city, whether that’s the hottest new restaurant or the next emerging neighborhood.
Sales and an appreciation for impeccable customer service run in Amanda’s blood. Multiple relatives, including her own husband, are realtors, and her father was a lifelong salesman who instilled in her early on the importance of investing in people. Prior to real estate, Amanda honed her own stellar sales and service skills managing local boutiques, including all merchandising, buying, styling and networking with influential, high-profile clientele.
Amanda holds a bachelor’s degree in fashion design from Savannah College of Art and Design. She has a passion for adventure and travel, and an abiding appreciation for art, fashion, and design of all kinds. When she’s not hard at work with clients, you’ll find her spending time with her family and two dogs. Amanda loves and understands the importance of giving back and has recently joined the board at the Ronald McDonald in Nashville and is an avid supporter of Agape Animal rescue.
With more than eight years of property management experience, Matt Hutfles is our tenant liaison. Matt lends his personal touch to tenant relationships beginning with the first showing as he tours the property with prospective tenants. Matt continues to give prompt attention to any questions or concerns through the term of the lease handling maintenance requests and general property maintenance questions.
