Michelle has been helping people buy and sell homes in Atlanta since 2002. She spent the first part of her career at Keller Williams, where she not only helped clients buy and sell homes, she also coached other realtors, taught negotiation classes, served on the Keller Williams Leadership Council, and was the real estate columnist for The Sunday Paper weekly. She joined the Intown Area Homes team in 2016.
Before going into real estate, Michelle was an accountant at Arthur Anderson and VIACOM. You’ll find having a numbers person on your side is a huge asset when it comes to understanding the market, negotiating powerful contracts, and making sense of the variables in offers.
Michelle has a deep passion for Atlanta’s diverse neighborhoods and the rich history behind them. Over the past few years, she’s been expanding her focus to include historic properties and estates. She enjoys preserving the city’s history and the difference she can make with clients who are selling homes that have been in their families for decades. Michelle is involved with the Atlanta Preservation Center, Atlanta Preservation Circa, and the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation.
A world traveler, the only continent Michelle hasn’t yet visited is Antarctica. She’s currently in training to walk the 500+ mile French Route of the Camino de Santiago de Compestella in 2019. In the meantime, you’ll find her exploring via motorcycle with her husband, Rob (car whisperer and restoration wizard extraordinaire) and squeezing every drop of joy possible out of life. Michelle and Rob live in a historic school, circa 1900, in the Kirkwood neighborhood of Atlanta with their mountain lion sized cats Rocky and Ding
