Michelle was born and raised in North San Diego County. She began her career in the real estate industry in 1999 and in 2005, she launched her own full-service real estate brokerage, Harvey Homes Real Estate and Property Management at www.HarveyHomes.com . Her business is based out of North San Diego County, but she also works in San Diego and on occasion, Riverside County. Michelle is able to offer incredible deals to her home sellers because she operates a virtual office and you work directly with her, the Broker/owner. Home buyers are also able to benefit from the knowledge gained in her 18+ year career. Michelle opened a second business, Harvey Homes Designs, this year. She hand paints real estate sign riders and other custom wood signs, pillow covers and bunting banners at https://www.etsy.com/shop/HarveyHomesDesigns?ref=hdr_shop_menu
