In the 25 years since I moved to L.A., I have seen the city develop into one of the major cultural metropolises in the world - truly a city of the future! One of the wonderful aspects of Los Angeles that I love is that no matter how big it seems from the outside, there's a small town feel and uniqueness to each neighborhood that reduces its immensity to a human scale, while maintaining a multicultural dynamism.
Originally from Montreal, I have lived and traveled all over the world and understand the subtleties of different cultures, their customs and attitudinal differences. With a degree in Psychology and Languages, followed by 20-plus-years as a leading actress, I have honed my listening and negotiating style to best serve both my buying and selling clients. In addition, my love of architecture and interior design gives me a keen and creative eye for a property’s renovation potential.
My role as Realtor and Relocation Consultant requires an expertise of the greater Los Angeles area and innate skills of resourcefulness, tenacity, discretion and being detail oriented. Whether guiding clients through their first purchase, hand-holding an international family searching for the best neighborhood to settle in, or in the emotional process of selling a treasured family home, I am engaged and determined every step of the way.
At Partners Trust, I am backed by a phenomenal team of some of the top real estate experts in the city that support not only me but every client I bring to the table. I am so proud of the Partners Trust Charitable Fund, that I have co-created the Genie Storyteller & Arts Program at L.A. Family Housing. I've also launched the Giving Garden in my community of West Toluca Lake, a collaborative effort for sharing the abundance of our backyards.
When not exploring L.A.’s latest shops, markets and restaurants, I love to cook, hike all over the canyons, and talk to almost every dog I meet.
Michele did a great job. We had tough parameters and she helped us out a lot.

I want to express my thanks to Michele for how she handled the listing of my dad's house. It's amazing to me how quickly and how well everything went. I attribute this to her attention to detail and anticipation of information that will be needed. Thanks to this, inspections were done on time as well as changes done to the property as needed. Michele carefully explained what was happening and going to happen and always clearly outlined our options. It's been a pleasure working with Michele.

Michele went way beyond the mere mortal real estate agent! She handled everything... because she was so hands-on, the house was ready to go on the market on time and all the repairs that she recommended enabled us to realize a sale price that was more than expected.
