Meet Michelle


Michelle is a highly accomplished real estate professional. Over the past 26 years in the Miami luxury real estate industry, she has recorded over $800 million in sales and has been recognized through numerous awards in recognition of her service to the industry. She attributes her success to her passion for helping to enrich the lives and families of those who put their trust in her.


The monetary remuneration always has been secondary to the personal friendships her career in real estate had made possible. The best part of her job is the “huge smile, and feeling of humility and gratitude I have when clients call me and say ‘Thank you, Michelle!’ That is my ultimate goal, and what moves me to better myself every day. I always strive to be the best in my field and help as many as possible to make an educated decision, one purchase at a time.


An expert in luxury properties, Michelle is devoted to serving the needs of real estate buyers and sellers throughout Miami. Her success is the culmination of many years spent learning different cultures and developing relationships with leading luxury brokers, and clients from around the world that are essential in such a culturally diverse city like Miami. Through these exclusive international partnerships, her expansive knowledge of current market trends, and her core strength of powerful people and negotiation skills, have earned the esteem and admiration of a prestigious network worldwide.  


Michelle was raised in Costa Rica and has traveled extensively throughout the world. She was educated in the U.S., where she studied public relations and marketing. Tapping into this broad array of experiences allows her to serve clients on every level. She delivers an impeccable, full-service approach to real estate, and her personality and style blend exceptionally well with the perseverance and stamina that have earned her a sterling reputation.


She possesses a natural repertoire of dynamic qualities that set her apart and enables her to successfully realize the goals of the discriminating buyers and sellers she represents. Her vast experience allows her to assist her clients in realizing the full potential of each property she represents while maintaining their privacy in the strictest fashion.


Among Michelle's other personal achievements are being a mother to her daughter, Nicole. She also devotes her time to participating in and helping non-profit groups raise funds including The University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, Manos del Sur (helps underprivileged children around the world), the American Cancer Society, her Key Biscayne community (PTA, Chamber of Commerce, and fundraisers), and other causes.
