Born and raised in Mammoth, Michele’s family first came to this area in 1955. Michele learned to ski about the same time she learned to walk. Learning to ski at an early age naturally inspired her to start ski racing on the Mammoth Mountain Race Team. This experience has given her the aggressive, competitive edge needed to be the successful real estate professional she is now.
What motivated Michele to seek a career in real estate was the fact that the business provides an avenue to constantly improving knowledge and learning. Whether it is keeping abreast of the ever changing real estate laws, rules and regulations to the marketing aspects of the business. Her mother was also a very successful Broker and mentor. Michele has found joy in helping people and knowing that, at the end of the day, you have done your best.
Michele began her real estate career in 1991. In 1991 real estate was not exactly booming but it afforded a lot of time networking and learning excellent marketing techniques.
