Background Information

Michelle became an entrepreneur at the age of 26 when she founded a successful employment services agency, Dental Temps, in Wilmington, North Carolina. Her company specialized in temporary and permanent placement of dental hygienists, assistants and administrative staff for dental offices. A few years after starting her business, she decided to sell her home. After having a less than impressive experience she thought that she could do a better job. Soon after, she enrolled in a real estate course and became a full-time agent licensed to sell Real Estate in the state of North Carolina in 1993. She obtained her broker’s license in 1994. Becoming a Realtor changed her life.
Michelle is a native of New Bern, North Carolina, and has lived in Wilmington, North Carolina since 1986. She has been a single mother since her daughter was 18 months old. Not only has real estate been personally gratifying to her, it has allowed her to provide her daughter with every opportunity to succeed. Michelle’s daughter is now 23 years old and is well on her way to becoming a successful adult.
