Michelle, a California native, graduated from San Fernando Valley High School where, as a cheerleader, she learned to balance education with social interaction, an ability she still values today. Following high school, Michelle attended Florida State University, earning degrees in both Business and Communication. She quickly put both of those degrees to work with 20 years in Human Resources Management in the hospitality and gaming industry, including director of HR and Training Development for the Agua Caliente Spa and Casino. Once Michelle turned her substantial talents to real estate here in the Coachella Valley, she quickly rose to a level of excellence, serving a variety of clientele from REO and entry level first-time buyers to repeat clients looking for million dollar homes. Michelle takes particular pride in her substantial base of Canadian clientele, who find her experience and dedication especially valuable in navigating the Coachella Valley real estate market. Canadian buyers appreciate Michelle’s talent for finding the perfect vacation home, as well as the growing number of our "snowbirds" planning ahead for a full-time residence. Michelle credits much of her success to that early ability to nurture and maintain long-term friendships. "I value my skill as a great relationship-builder," she says. "Clients become my friends, and a great number of my business relationships have grown into very dear, long-time friendships." Bennion Deville Homes is proud that Michelle has chosen to become part of its network of outstanding agents and offices, and looks forward to a long and productive partnership.
