The ideal real estate agent knows every last detail of their market – the kind of information that only comes from a lifetime of patronizing local shops and bistros, strolling through every park, and exploring each pocket of the neighborhood.
Born and raised in Lafayette, California, Michele McKay has this kind of in-depth knowledge of the town and delights in sharing her insider expertise with her clients. For over a decade, Michele has served Lafayette, Moraga, and Orinda, also known as Lamorinda, as well as surrounding East Bay areas like Oakland and Rossmoor.
Trained as a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist, Michele offers unparalleled acumen in high-end estates and luxury properties, while her training as a Seniors Real Estate Specialist uniquely qualifies her to serve her empty-nester clients and those looking to downsize for life’s golden years. Michele’s impressive background provides her with a coveted perspective on real estate – as a former architect, she is able to provide insight into the design elements of the properties she shows, as well as the financial savvy and market expertise that comes with her decade of real estate experience.
Michele puts her clients front and center, and this close relationship is her favorite part of her career. With a deep appreciation for the opportunity to help people from all walks of life achieve their real estate goals, Michele’s natural curiosity, patience, and playful approach have won her a loyal and devoted client base, one that cherishes her confidence, intelligence, and a keen eye for design.
When Michele isn’t working with clients, you’ll find her soaking up the California sun out on the golf course. A passionate art aficionado and an alum of UC Berkeley’s Art History program, Michele also loves to spend her free time drawing and exploring the Bay Area’s art museums. With an enviable education and career, Michele’s proudest accomplishments are her unerring honesty, her ability to remain true to herself, and her commitment to enjoy each and every day.
