Hello and welcome!
The Fox Valley is a great place to live, work and play. I couldn’t be happier being part of this great community and all it has to offer. I look forward to learning about your real estate needs and how my experience can be put to work for you! I am an outgoing, full service Realtor serving the entire Fox Valley Region. Whether you’re buying or selling real estate, my goal is to deliver professional service, great communication, and most importantly make it an enjoyable journey!
Being born and raised in Appleton gives me an unique understanding of the marketing and I can help guide you to where you want to be. I graduated with a Bachelor of Business degree from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh with an emphasis in Marketing. I am married to a wonderful husband and together we have 2 beautiful children. I love to remain active with running and fitness in the community, volunteering within the Appleton School District, Girl Scout community and youth sporting events. I actively participate in the Neighborhood Outreach event which is a program with Realtor's of Northeastern Wisconsin (RANW). Through the program we're able to help those in need of help with their fall yard clean-up.
After working in marketing, sales for 10 years I took my experience and expanded my knowledge and education to Commercial Real Estate in 2010 and worked at a boutique real estate company called The Nyla Group. In 2013 I joined The Helena Jacyno Team at Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Group, Inc.to focus more on the residential side of real estate. The team goal is to make you so outrageously happy with their services that you will have gladly referred people to them who are just like you...great people...during the process and before celebration! We pride ourselves on providing exceptional service so much that 80% of our business comes from past customer referrals! In the summer of 2018 I was promoted to Assistant Manager at our Appleton office located on Lynndale Dr. and have continued to service my customers and provide an exceptional real estate experience for them. I look forward to hearing from you so we can discuss how I can assist you with your real estate needs.
Whether you’re looking to BUY your first home, dream home or second home we understand this is a huge financial investment and will treat it that way every step of the way. Our real estate market is constantly changing so you need a Realtor has strong negotiation skills, who is dedicated to establishing and maintaining lifelong relationships.

Testimonials -Here’s what people are saying about Michelle.
"Very flexible and was able to get us into house viewing very quickly. Very helpful in pointing out opportunities in houses and comparing them. Was not pushy in choosing a home or writing an offer right away - was not just doing it for the sale and could tell Michelle wanted us to find a good home for our family. Michelle is very kind and was very responsive during buying process. Michelle also helped to sell our home very quickly and without any issues, it was a smooth process.throughout."
~ Victor and Liz
"Michelle was very patient as my husband and I looked at several houses before finding the one for us. She even wrote our offer up on a Friday evening while she was on vacation because she knew the house would go quickly. There were multiple offers on our house, so Michelle gave us a few tips regarding how to better our chances at getting the house. Her advice was right on, as we won out over a higher offer because of the steps we took after hearing her ideas. We could not be happier to be raising our young family in the house that Michelle helped us find. She is honestly the best!"
~ Tim and Julie
“Michelle was very responsive and knew the local market very well. She listened to our concerns and was always helpful finding an answer. She was well connected and helped us find the right professional when we needed them.”
“Michelle did an incredible job in navigating us through the selling process. We had a challenging transaction due to unusual circumstances and Michelle guided us, communicated frequently and helped us to successfully sell our home and move onto our dream home! I highly recommend Michelle if you're looking for a realtor with attention to detail, good listening skills and treats her clients like family.” ~ Shayna
“Michelle invited me to an open house in my neighborhood. Although that property wasn't really what I wanted, she provided a steady stream of homes that I considered until I found what I wanted a couple of months later. As a result of the "sellers market", she worked with me to get a offer together, that was quickly accepted. Now, I am in a home that's VERY close to what I was thinking of building.”
By the way, the property she listed (the open house) sold quickly, as well.”
“Michelle was extremely easy to work with. We evaluated a couple different realtors prior to making our decision and Michelle was by far the most personable and outgoing in terms of working with us and finding ways to get our house listed and sold. There was alot of things that came up in the process and Michelle was a wealth of knowledge and resources that were able to allow us to complete the sale of the house in a very fast and efficient manner. I cannot recommend enough the piece of mind that Michelle afforded us.”
“So helpful, available, and fun to work with! Couldn’t have chosen anyone better. She really went out of her way to make the entire process easy and stress free.” ~ Ashley
“Always willing to help answer questions. Gave us as much detail as she possibly could about each house we viewed. Made sure we knew about any issues with the house if there were any. Was very good with our short notice requests about showings which is nice when houses are selling the day they are posted.”
“Michelle made the process of buying a home so easy! We have had a really bad experience before working with Michelle and what a different there was! Michelle was easy to work with, responsive, reliable and professional. Michelle listened to our wants and needs and helped us find our home on the first day we worked with her! Michelle never pressured us to make any decisions we were not comfortable with and guided us along the way. I HIGHLY recommend working with Michelle! She went above and beyond and even gave us a “house warming gift” which was the sweetest thing.
~Alyssa and Dylan
" Michelle is very friendly and helpful and we were very satisfied with our quick and fast transaction". ~ Roger and Cindy
" Michelle was there when I had questions or needed guidance and was always timely. My expectations were always met and in fact she went above and beyond when I could not make the final walk through. She still kept the appointment, attended it for me and I was very happy she did." ~ Jami
" The team's communication efforts were very good. Michelle constantly kept us up to date on the status of our piece of land and how the closing was going - she always kept us informed." ~ Tony and Joan
" Michelle's communication efforts totally met our needs. She was able it get us into homes that were not even listed yet to help us find our home."
~ Shane and Alanna
" Michelle was on the spot and responded to texts virtually immediately. We were up very late at night with the first offer she wrote. She's a rock star!!. Michelle went above and beyond, working to show us other houses and even doing a market analysis for our rental house. We were glad to be able to buy through her even though it meant having to leave our current neighborhood. Everything was great!" ~ Rob and Cat
"I wanted someone who listened to what I was looking for and available when I needed them to be. I most definitely found both of those things. One of them was always available and always quick to respond to all my needs. Both were so personable and I felt so comfortable with them. I felt like I’d known them forever! I would definitely recommend to all my family and friends.” ~ Kim
" The Team was amazing and exceeded my expectations. The team couldn’t have made our home selling experience any better. We had an offer just 3 weeks after listing! They were honest and upfront and made the process effortless. I don’t think you could possibly do more. We can’t wait to buy a new house with you ladies!” ~ Mike
" What a joy it is to know you. Your spirit of sharing warms the heart of so many. We refer people to you because we want them to experience a kind, hard-working, insightful realtor who really cares." ~ Char & Bill
