Michelle utilizes over twenty years of experience in residential and commercial real estate to provide her clients with investment expertise and a thorough knowledge of the real estate market. Her loyal clientele values her responsiveness, strong work ethic and sharp negotiating skills, which have set her apart in the industry and distinguished her as a consistent top producer. In 2004, Michelle's first year in residential real estate, she was named Rookie of the Year, and by 2010, was recognized as the companywide top producer. In 2010, she was also awarded the production honor of being inducted in the Hall of Fame for having closed over $100 million in sales during her tenure. Since joining Briggs Freeman Sotheby's International Realty in 2011, Michelle has consistently been honored as one of the top four individual producers, with 2013 sales in excess of $44 million. The Dallas residential real estate market has seen unprecedented growth over recent years, and Michelle continues to consistently sell her clients' homes for premium prices, and within a shorter period of time than other competing homes. When listing a property, Michelle believes that market presentation and pricing are the two most important factors in selling a home, and she attributes her success rate to the trust her clients place in her marketing and recommendations. Many of Michelle's listings sell before they reach the market, and her buyers often purchase properties before they are formally listed. Michelle's ability to find these buyers and sellers is a result of her collaborative relationships with a large network of realtors who specialize in her areas of expertise. Michelle attended Southern Methodist University, receiving a Bachelor's of Business Administration in Accounting with emphasis in Finance. She is married to a native Dallasite, and has three children. She resides in the Park Cities and has been extremely active in her community, her children's schools Hockaday, St. Mark's, and McCulloch Middle School, and in service organizations such as Preservation Dallas, Park Cities Historic and Preservation Society, the Rise School of Dallas, and Cheers for Charity. This community involvement keeps Michelle in touch with her clients on a personal level, and gives her the ability to guide these clients as they make other decisions associated with purchasing a home, such as schools, children and family programs, and other neighborhood amenities. Michelle's areas of expertise include, but are not limited to, Park Cities, Preston Hollow, Turtle Creek/Uptown, Greenway Parks, Bluffview and Devonshire.
