Originally from Chicago, Michelle Ozanne has lived in North County Coastal San Diego for 25 years. She started her real estate career five years ago after working in the foster care/adoption industry for 15 years. Finding children a safe place to call home was a different form of real estate.
The best part of working full-time in real estate is that she gets to interact with all kinds of people. Connecting with others brings Michelle so much joy, as does helping clients during significant financial and emotional decisions. There is nothing like the happiness she gets from having clients trust and guide her to find the right home. She does her best to ease them through what can be a stressful period, navigating all of the elements and keeping the chaos “below the water” so her clients don’t feel the wave.
Personable, kind, and outgoing, Michelle makes her clients feel like they’re the only ones she’s assisting by being attentive, responsive, and thorough. She is tenacious when needed and is always their best advocate. Michelle functions as a full-service concierge luxury real estate advisor who will connect you with everything you need before, during, and after a transaction.
She also connects well with other agents, making them feel heard by using positive persuasion, which helps make the entire transaction run smoothly for all parties. Also unique to Michelle’s service is that she pays for her client’s staging, including photography, videos, drones, and even arranging for vendors. Her generosity extends to providing gifts for their home anniversary and referrals. Above all, Michelle is always present and available to her clients.
Michelle is the former president and current active member of the Del Sol Chapter of the National Charity League and the past Chairman of the Board for Walden Family Services (a non-profit Foster & Adoption Agency). She received the Compass Culture Champion Award twice and made the WSJ Real Trends America’s Best Real Estate Professionals list.
Married for 26 years, Michelle has been with her husband for more than three decades, and they have three kids: McKenna, 21, Ella, 18, and Brody, 16. They have one dog, Jax. Michelle and her family love to travel, and they often return to Chicago and Wisconsin to visit family. They are also huge sports fans, especially soccer and football (go Packers!). On the weekends, you might find Michelle going on girl’s trips, exercising, taking walks, basically anything but cooking.
