    Thanks for clicking on my bio, I'm happy you want to learn more about what I can do for you.

    First, the basics. My name is Michelle and I am a full time, licensed real estate professional with 16 years experience in the real estate profession. I was a founding member of Keller Williams Towne Square Realty, 9 years ago!

    Want to know more? How about this? Although born in California, I have lived most of my life in beautiful New Jersey (no, really) A graduate of the College of New Jersey with a degree in Accounting, I returned to California and worked pre-production accounting for Disney's Touchstone Films followed by being the accounting manager for the Disney Stores at their headquarters. We moved back to New Jersey, settling in Basking Ridge where my husband and I raised two wonderful children 

    Next to my family, my friends and community are at the heart of my personal life. While I enjoy a good happy hour with friends, the sounds of a great music playlist, spending time at the beach or exercising at the gym;  my greatest satisfaction has been from the volunteer work I've done over the years. Heavily involved with our school system, my work ran the full range; Room Mom, PTO treasurer to Props Mom for school plays. In addition, I co-managed NeighborhoodCoffees and was a committee member introducing Relay for Life to Basking Ridge.  I remain on the Brian's Dream Foundation Committee and am a member of the "Bear Mak'in Ladies" originated to help those in our area affected by 9/11. With this group I also participated in the 283 mile memorial bike ride from Ground Zero to the Pentagon. As you can see, I've chosen to keep it local and personal.

    Now, as a realtor specializing in residential properties and a proud member of the R & S HomeTeam, I bring that abundant energy, proven professionalism, broad business experience, vast local expertise and personal knowledge to the market place...and you. As a seasoned member of our KW Market.Center, I often serve as trainer and mentor to team members in our office. I'm a repeat Circle of Excellence winner and am ABR certified (Acredited Buyers Representative) and my practice covers Somerset, Morris, Hunterdon and yes, Ocean counties. I am well known for great customer service, consistent and clear communications, strong attention to detail and ensuring a positive experience for you - whether it's your first real estate transaction or your twentieth.

    My real estate mantra? "I'm not number one, YOU are"

    So, where to begin? Perhaps… the beginning.

    My work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit date back to my first job working in my father’s neighborhood grocery store in Hillside NJ, back in the 1960s.  It was there I learned that hard work, honest dealings and a commitment to excellent service are rewarded with customer loyalty. It also instilled in me a strong appreciation for the value of community.

    Feeling the need to find out what lies beyond the town I grew up in, I worked my way through college earning a bachelors degree in business. Upon graduation I was immediately given an opportunity to learn the textile industry as a sales representative for a “rep firm” in Tennessee.  That led to jobs in Boston then New York before my entrepreneurial instincts led me to take a leap of faith and start my own Rep agency at the age of 30. That risk was rewarded with a successful business in a thriving market. Looking for a new challenge after 13 years, I accepted a position as Vice President of Sales for a Canadian based fabric manufacturer. After opening an office in New York City, hiring a team of sales reps throughout the country, traveling the world  fighting back against the impact of globalization on domestic industries, it was time for textiles and me to go our separate ways.

    Always having a passion for Real Estate and feeling the pull from a desire to have a more community based career, I decided to get my Real Estate license and give it a go. At that point I had lived in Basking Ridge for 16 years (still do) and raised two wonderful children there. My anchor was out and I wasn’t going anywhere.

    I joined Keller Williams in 2010 and began selling Real Estate. I love what I do and am proud of all I have achieved. Moving into the top 20 % of production in my  second year I qualified to  serve on the Agent Leadership Council.  It is a council that basically serves as the company’s board of directors. It was a position I held for three consecutive years. 

    Looking for an opportunity to serve my community I joined the Rotary Club of Bernardsville in 2013 and have served on the Board of Directors and as President for two consecutive terms. It has been a truly rewarding experience.

    Realizing the limitations that come with being an individual agent and seeing the need to increase the level of service to my clients, I recently joined forces with one of the best Realtors I know, Michelle Reedy, to form the R&S Home Team. We have invested in people and technology that has increased our value in a very competitive marketplace. Everyone seems to know at least five Realtors so we know if we are to earn your trust and business we need to out perform our competition. How do we do that? We do it first by listening to what your needs are and crafting a strategy that will get you where you need to be, when you need to be there. Having a good strategy is important but it is the execution and the ability to adjust that strategy as needed that really matters. That requires daily attention to the shifting winds of the marketplace. It takes more than one agent. It takes a team. A team of agents with complimentary specialties that stays focused on the needs of it’s clients. That’s the R&S Home Team.
