Michelle worked professionally in IT, web, marketing and public relations for more than 15 years before starting a career in real estate. Her love for architecture and finding the beauty in each home is what encouraged her to pursue this passion and partner with Deasy Penner Podley.
Recently becoming a first-time home buyer herself, Michelle understands the confidence one needs in making a huge life investment. She provides preparation and knowledge to her clients so they can make the right decisions. Michelle also supports her clients in taking that next step of selling their house to find and achieve their dream home, if they haven’t already. She believes that listening to your needs and being in constant communication are also essential in every transaction.
Having lived in Southern California for more than a decade, Michelle has resided in different neighborhoods in the Greater Los Angeles Area. She lived in Pasadena for several years when she got married before moving to their new home in Claremont.
She is a Certified Pricing Strategy Advisor by the National Association of Realtors®. Working with a PSA adds valuable perspective to every transaction while taking the guesswork out of pricing. She provides the confidence that the home her clients buy or sell has the most accurate price.
She is also currently a member of the California Association of Realtors®, the National Association of Realtors®, and the Pasadena Foothills Association of Realtors®.
