After graduating from Bryant University in 1975, Michele came to Block Island to set up a business education department at the Block Island School.  She taught at the school for four years.

In 1978, she became a licensed real estate salesperson.  After working both jobs, she chose to enter the real estate profession full time.  Since then, she has remained active in real estate on the Island.

She was a member of the zoning board, recreation board, St. Andrew's Ladies Guild and Youth Group. She is currently president of The Fred Benson Memorial Scholarship Fund.

Michele enjoys the Block Island beaches anytime of the year, has been an avid skier for many years, and started snowshoeing about 5 years ago.  During the summer, she enjoys gardening and sailing and cookouts on the beach with friends.

As a salesperson, Michele has a friendly manner but is known to work extremely efficiently for her customers.

I cannot recommend Michele Phelan more highly, as a realtor. Michele was my agent for the sale of our family home, on Block Island-and there were MANY issues. First: multiple owners with less than "perfect relationships". As managing trustee, I was the one responsible for any decisions, regarding the house-sale or anything else. However, other partial owners approached Michele several times and she handled them, firmly with polite professionalism. At times, I had to contact her while she and I were both on vacation and she never let that interfere with our correspondence. She also dealt with some very difficult buyers and complicated Purchase and Sale agreements. The final result was a successful sale - despite all the people and issues involved-and Michele was never anything but polite, professional and available, anytime, we needed assistance. Again, we highly recommend Michele, and the agency, to anyone involved with the purchase or listing of a property on Block Island

Michele was a phenomenal partner to us throughout our search for a special island home. She possesses extensive knowledge about the island and always provided tremendous support to us through her insights and recommendations regarding homes as well as nuances of the island. She was lovely to work with throughout every step of the process and quickly became a friend and trusted advisor. Michele's kindness and dedication were instrumental to us and we felt privileged to have experienced her expertise. She remains a great friend whose love of the island allows her to support her client's every need.
