Michele Giffin attributes much of her success in real estate to four things: her experience as a Marketing and Event Coordinator prior to entering real estate, her long time residency in the greater Pasadena communities, her dedication and involvement in the community and her passion for serving her clients to the very best of her ability.
A REALTOR since 2000, Michele’s previous experience as a Marketing and Event Coordinator has greatly enhanced her ability to successfully market her property listings. Her longtime residency and community involvement in the greater Pasadena area have provided her with an exceptional knowledge of all our local communities which in turn enables her to better serve her clients.
Michele understands the importance of always keeping her clients best interest at heart. Her reputation for honesty, trustworthiness and fairness are the cornerstones, which define her character and competence. Her clients find that she has a unique ability to identify what is truly important to them and then create swift results that fulfill those desires and dreams.
Michele strongly believes in giving back to the community and has served as the Chairman of fund raising for The Door of Hope, Pasadena Heritage, Pasadena Christian School, Maranatha High School and Union Station. She is currently on the board for TLC, Treasured Little Children and looks forward to helping as many kids as possible. In her free time she is also dedicated to raising money and awareness for The Avon Breast Cancer Research Foundation and this year will be walking 40 miles for the cause. She enjoys all that Pasadena has to offer and supports our local Farmers market on a regular basis and enjoys hiking in the foothills with her chocolate lab, Baxter. Michele is a proud mother of her son Tyler who is a Rescue Swimmer in the Navy. She is an active member of the Pasadena Foothills and National Association of Realtors.

Dear Mr. Podley, You are very lucky to have Michele as an agent representing your company. She was a joy to work with and I would refer her to my friends. She has a great attitude and truly cares about her clients. Moreover, her commitment to the community is outstanding!

She is smart, efficient and paid attention to all necessary details. She gave great advice and practical suggestions. Mostly she was “there” for me even when she was out of town. I would recommend her!
I believe that Michele’s organizational gifts, staging experience, real estate background and aesthetic sensibilities come together in such a way that she has an uncanny ability to imagine how a space can – with simplicity – reveal its most attractive self. I am so grateful for Michele’s expertise! I will surely work with her again.
We love our new duplex and are really enjoying the picnic tables you had delivered. Sitting out in the sunshine with my doggies and best friend/neighbor. Happy New Year and thank you for all of your hard work in making our dreams come true!
Karen & Laura
I based my decision on selecting Michele Giffin to represent selling my home based on her impressive marketing proposal. She was warm and friendly, knowledgeable about her market area and really took over to make this an easy transaction. Michele did a great job. I recommend her to my friends.
I send congratulations to you on the successful event last weekend, and say that I hope you are proud for what was accomplished. There was a large crowd at the Treasure Little Children Fashion Show expressing all sorts of excitement and fun at the event. I am pleased to have been asked to offer a word of support to the supporters of TLC.
Keep up the good work, and I look forward to seeing you soon.
Bill Bogaard, Pasadena Mayor
