Michelle's sales success began with a career in advertising sales for Renda Broadcasting Corporation.  In 2004 she joined the Monika DeBenedictis Team where her professional expertise, keen understanding of the local market and latest technology trends, and focus on unrivaled service, have created exceptional customer experiences.  Michelle has always enjoyed being in a sales role and when her career path led her to luxury real estate, she knew she was exactly where she was supposed to be.  Selling luxury real estate in Naples has become a lifestyle, not just a career.

Michelle grew up in South Brunswick, New Jersey and moved to Naples in 1997 after graduating college.  She and her husband, Matt, have two beautiful children, Noah and Sienna. Having grown up in the northeast, Michelle couldn't think of a better place to raise their children than Naples, Florida.
