Pennybacker Bridge over Lake AustinPennybacker Bridge over Lake AustinMichelle, an Austin transplant, truly understands what her clients are feeling when buying and selling a home. In 2010, her husband's job transfer called her to this amazing, central Texas city. With 3 kids and 2 dogs in tow, the family sought out their fame and fortune in a city that was still a mystery to them. Michelle and her husband Kevin viewed 60+ homes from Dripping Springs to Taylor, Georgetown to Bastrop, looking for their "perfect" home. It was during these 4 long months that Michelle learned something she shares with her clients today: there is no "perfect." Michelle’s motto for her buyer clients is simply, “Perfect is what you make it.” She uses her interior design and remodeling background to help clients see the possibilities in a home and find their own "perfect." Her clients have described Michelle as knowledgeable, persistent, patient, responsive, and fun; in fact, most of Michelle's clients end up as friends. Michelle offers her sellers the winning combination of real estate market knowledge, thorough research and preparation of each property, correct pricing structure, a specialized marketing plan, and custom staging services. This strategy has proven to sell homes, even during the slowest market, within 3 weeks, although most of her listings sell within days.

When Michelle is not helping her clients find their own kind of "perfect," she enjoys striving to live the simple life of faith, hope, and love with her family of an amazing selfless husband, 3 passionate children, and 2 rescue border collie-lab mixes. They all love to laugh and find joy in the simple pleasure in life in Cedar Creek.
