Michelle grew up in the MidCoast, but moved back with her husband when her daughters were small. “I remembered what it was like to grow up here,” she says, “and I wanted that for my children too.”

After working in marketing and sales for an independent Maine publisher, Michelle brings a sense of what’s uniquely Maine to her real estate practice as well. She has a fondness for old houses and local history, and she wants to be a voice for preserving her community, as well as promoting it. “Many clients are coming here for its historic value,” she says. “They focus on the historical character and charm of the home. I’m working with a woman now who’s looking for a Victorian with as many of the original features intact as possible. She wants to know the age, the style, the DNA of the house – and I love the research!”

Michelle brings dedication and enthusiasm to her clients because she understands them. “Why do baby boomers, artists, entrepreneurs and families want to live here? Same reason I do. It has a budding creative economy, abundant four-season recreation and lots of cultural activities.”

Michelle enjoys gardening, literary events and she plays in a bluegrass retro folk band.
