I am a Knoxville native. I grew up in Farragut. I graduated with honors from the University of Tennessee with a degree in Education. There, I met my husband who was a UT Football and Track Letterman and I was a member of the UT Dance Team and Pi Beta Phi. We have four children in Knox County Schools. I am actively involved in my children's schools, with their sports teams, and at our church. I know and love this city and the Vols!

    I also love helping my clients sell and find their dream home! As your agent, my goal is your satisfaction. I seek to build relationships with my clients based on respect and trust. I work diligently to provide superior service and do all I can to keep the selling and buying process as stress-free as possible. As a former middle and high school teacher, I know how to problem solve and negotiate. I pay attention to detail, listen, and most importantly truly care about my clients.

    My Client Testimonials

    "I recently relocated over 800 miles. Michelle and I corresponded for several months before I made my first house hunting trip. She got to know me and how I worked on our brief interactions, and set up full days of hunting, as I hoped. After just a few days of searching, we found the perfect home, in the perfect area, and easily negotiated a great contract. Michelle led me through a very accelerated closing process, and I am loving my new home! I have worked with many realtors, and I trust Michelle to represent my interests and help anyone I know with professionalism, kindness, and respect. Call her!" 11/2017
    "Michelle is an amazing realtor. She made the purchase of our first home a smooth and pleasant one. Extremely professional,knowledgeable and very detail oriented...she made herself available to us every step of the process and not only helped us purchase our dream home but also provided recommendations in our search for utility companies,schools and other amenities in the area since we were new to the city. I highly recommend Michelle and will definitely go with her again if I have to buy or sell a home." 10/2017

I highly recommend her! You won't be disappointed" 2/2017
