About Michele

I have worked in Real Estate since 1988. In 2012 I had the opportunity to become a Founding Partner of Partners Trust Real Estate Brokerage in Pasadena. Then in 2017 Partners Trust Real Estate and Pacific Union International merged to create the #1 Independently Owned and Operated Real Estate Company in California.         Today we are all COMPASS.   

I have been recognized for my uniquely tenacious, nurturing, and supportive service. I am a full-time professional who takes pride in quality representation, skillful negotiation, and aggressive marketing. These qualities and abilities have led to numerous recognitions both at COMPASS and with the local community.

I also understand the importance of always keeping my client’s best interest at heart. My reputation for honesty, trustworthiness, and fairness are the cornerstones that define my character and competence. My clients find that I have a unique ability to identify what is truly important to them and to then create swift results that fulfill those chosen dreams and desires.

My husband and I have lived in South Pasadena for over 35 years where we raised our two daughters. Now our daughters are married and we are blessed with 3 grandchildren. My longevity in the area has provided me with exceptional knowledge of all our local communities throughout the San Gabriel Valley. I am currently a proud, longtime member of the Pasadena Foothills Association of Realtors and South Pasadena Chamber of Commerce.

I am honored to be the #1 Residential Agent in South Pasadena for 9 consecutive years (per MLS production), 2022 Broker Agent Advisor 5 Star Award Winner, also named one of Los Angeles Magazines 2023 Real Estate All-Star. Close to $200 Million sold in 2021 & 2022.
