After graduating from the University of Maryland in 2005 with a degree in business marketing, Michelle went to work for Ryan Homes, the #1 new home construction builder in the Baltimore area. While at Ryan Homes (2005-2011 one of the worst real estate markets in history), Michelle sold over 90 million dollars in real estate. Despite the economic challenges she faced in this market, Michelle not only excelled, but was continually recognized as being a top performer winning multiple awards in customer service and sales volume. In 2011 Michelle was ready for a new challenge so she left Ryan Homes and became an independent agent giving her the flexibility to work with both buyers and sellers. Since changing directions she has again excelled and become one the top performing agents in her office. She has many awards and accolades over the years, but her most proud being her awards for the top individual agent (for units sold) for 2017, 2018, and 2019! Michelle also has a passion for real estate investment and practices what she preaches. Michelle purchased her first investment property at the age of 22 and now she and her husband manage a large portfolio or rental properties. Michelle is that unique agent that not only has experience but the expertise needed to win for her clients in any market.
