Michelle Hammons

I am devoted to my career because I can make a profound difference in people’s lives. I began in the fine art arena but found a real sense of belonging and purpose in real estate. For years I have collaborated with clients, helping them carefully navigate the most important transactions of their lives and often, becoming dear friends in the process. With a background in fine art and gemology, I learned to embrace every challenge, overcome every roadblock, and am confident there is always a way- sometimes out of the box- to achieve great results.

“If I had to choose only one word to describe Michelle, it would be IMPRESSIVE. But luckily, I don’t have to. Throughout the entire process of our home purchase, Michelle was poised, confident, and thorough. She left no stone unturned or any detail overlooked. Even after the close of escrow, she followed up with us. A true professional”. Buyer in Carmel, CA

“Selling our home was a difficult decision for us. From the beginning, Michelle understood that and did whatever she could to facilitate our transition. During the selling negotiations and once the house was sold, she continued to provide us with the highest professional service. We could not have been happier knowing that she was always in our corner. Michelle from day one showed us the true definition of a “Personal Real Estate Agent.” Seller in Pebble Beach, CA

I believe that educated and empowered clients make the best financial decisions. It is through this belief that I continuously work to educate myself and my clients on the current state of the market. I provide insightful information to my clients that people tell me instills trust and confidence, which in turn makes the process less stressful and clients reach their goals and dreams in a short amount of time. I am data-driven and proactive, working tirelessly to negotiate the very best price and terms for each buyer and seller. You can always count on me to get you what you want.

“In looking for a Pebble Beach property, Susie and I were very fortunate to discover Michelle Hammons, who understood what we wanted and was extremely proactive.

The biggest compliment I can receive is a referral, and thankfully people trust me enough to refer me to their friends and family. I have built a solid business and reputation based on the values I learned from my parents: responsiveness, ethics, and honesty. I answer calls quickly, honor my commitments, and tell clients the truth, even when the truth is difficult. I have also built strong, mutually-rewarding working relationships with a broad network of agents and service providers.

Living and working on the Monterey Peninsula since 1990, I know the neighborhoods, businesses, schools, trends, restaurants, resources, culture and every aspect of our community inside and out. My intuition, instinct, sense of aesthetics, and savvy marketing gives an advantage to my clients whether buying or selling.

“We are delighted to recommend Michelle to anyone interested in buying a home. With her help, we bought a home we really love in Carmel. Her integrity, domain knowledge, professionalism, and extraordinary patience have made the otherwise stressful buying process a smooth one. She showed us many homes and analyzed them with us, never pushed us to make a decision until we were ready. She shepherded us through the process very well while we were traveling in Europe.
