Michelle Bell has an MBA from Thunderbird, the American Graduate School of International Management, in Arizona, and a BA in Economics from McGill University in Montreal. Originally from the East coast, where she graduated from Phillips Academy, Andover in 1986, Michelle has lived in Mill Valley for the past fifteen years with her husband and their three daughters. She enjoys running her dogs on the vast network of trails offered in her back yard courtesy of Mt.Tam, surfing in Bolinas and Santa Cruz, and skiing in the Sierras. 

Prior to entering the Real Estate business, Michelle was a Senior Manager for Ernst & Young, LLP in their Information Security consulting practice and before that the Director of Business Development for a start-up information security company. In both positions, Michelle was responsible for negotiating and closing multi-million dollar deals and assuring quality service delivery.

 Michelle has been a licensed Realtor in the San Francisco Bay Area since November of 2003, and has enjoyed a phenomenal level of success - as measured both in economic terms, but also, and in her opinion, more importantly, in terms of her clients' satisfaction. Michelle believes that the purchase or sale of one’s home should not be influenced by any factors or motivations other than those of the buyer or seller. She sees her role as an agent as that of a facilitator, negotiator, and protector of her clients’ best interests.
