Michelle has been fortunate enough to spend her life in the place she loves most – Northern California. Originally raised in Novato, Michelle now resides in Sonoma County, with family nearby in Napa, Marin and San Francisco. Her husband, Paul, was born and raised in Healdsburg. They bought their Santa Rosa home in 2011 and have never looked back!
After graduating from California State University Chico, Michelle kicked off her career in education and started a family. Today, she has two great kids and over 20 years of experience as a high school science teacher. Although she enjoyed her time serving her students and community as an educator, her real passion has always really been in real estate.
Over the past couple of years, she’s had success as a real estate investor as well as operating and managing a multi-unit Airbnb business in Dallas, Texas. In 2020, Michelle officially took her entrepreneurial spirit and passion for homes to the world of real estate sales, becoming a realtor and joining the Marquis+Farwell Team at Compass Healdsburg.
When she is not scoping out the North Bay real estate market, managing her Airbnb business or searching warehouses for the perfect slab of white marble, you can find her hiking, cooking and traveling with her family.
Marquis + Farwell Homes takes a vested interest in all their clients and work tirelessly to help them filter through the heaps of information that surface when it comes time to buy or sell a property.
