Born and raised in the Midwest. Moved to Los Angeles after graduating from college and began a career in product development. First home in California was a major fixer in Marina del Rey. After meeting Julio, she moved to Culver City and it's been home ever since. 

After several years working in Corporate America as a product developer and merchandising director from various companies, she decided to join Julio and work in real estate. There is nothing more exciting than helping clients find their place to call HOME. 

Michelle's savvy business sense has helped her clients tremendously when it comes to negotiating the deal and making an offer. Her ability to build relationships with clients and peers is second to none. The relationship built during the home buying experience goes well beyond the transaction.

Greater L.A. specialist with over 18 years of real estate experience. Native of Peru and attended college at the University of San Francisco. After many years working in marketing & design, a new passion was discovered in real estate during the process of buying his first home in Culver City.


Having a graphic design background really comes in handy to help create all of our marketing materials! Julio & Michelle live in the neighborhood and are very involved in their community.  From working to define a client’s vision and managing those expectations, to negotiating with tenacity while keeping in close communication, Julio is well-known for his tireless determination that ensures his clients meet their goals, regardless of how complex. Featured in episodes of House Hunters & House Hunters Renovation. 


Julio enjoys watching soccer when he has free time and played for several years. Spending time with their 4 year old daughter is the biggest joy in his life!  Right now the big focus is starting to teach her how to ride a bike and trying not to have a heart attack from being so nervous watching her. Making it a point to have family dinners together is a big deal in our house to spend quality time.
