Michelle Martin

Listing Specialist and REALTOR®

Michelle has lived in Victoria for over 30 years and is a mother of 2. In 2012 she was offered a job as a realtor’s assistant and immediately loved all aspects of the business and did everything she could to learn as much as there was to learn. Her knowledge, energy, warmth, and relationship-building skills make her a natural in the business. Michelle believes that real estate is not just about the transaction, but the story of the people involved in the transaction. Real estate can be a very emotional business and this is where Michelle shines. Michelle spends a lot of her time volunteering in her community and on the executives of her children’s sports and school.

“The majority of my business comes from referrals, so it is important to me that everyone’s experience is a positive one.”
