Michelle left her position managing a $10 million dollar research grant at Xavier University to become a full time Realtor. Her other past experiences include working in a marketing and business development capacity for Capital One. She earned a Bachelor's degree in Marketing from the University of New Orleans in 2005 and went on to complete her MBA in 2008.

She enjoys serving her community as an active member of the Junior League of New Orleans. Festivals, food, culture, and a sense of community are some of her favorite aspects of living in city.

She is willing to go the extra mile, to assist her clients in finding the perfect home or assisting in selling.

Corinne Pagano, Realtor -
Corinne is a mother of 5 who has lived in the New Orleans Metro area most of her life. She graduated from Archbishop Chapelle High School and went on to study theater at USM and UNO. After learning pretty quickly that she didn't like being a starving artist Corinne started the first of many jobs in sales. Corinne has sold everything from bridal gowns to timeshares to insurance but most of her career was spent in the mortgage industry.
Working for HSBC Corinne learned she had a passion for helping people. She also learned the ins and outs of mortgages, appraisals, negotiations and title work. Corinne has learned over the years the stress of making such a huge financial transaction and how a knowledgeable and caring professional can make all the difference. Her negotiation skills, organization and passion for people helped her to become one of the top 15 mortgage professionals nationwide at HSBC. She was recognized at the district, divisional and national levels numerous times.
After the mortgage collapse in 2009 Corinne took some time off to focus on her family and do volunteer work. She has worked with the Pelican District of the Boy Scouts of America as a Den Leader and Cubmaster. She also worked with Children's Hospital and with their Miracle League and has been involved in the SLKF and Holy Cross Parents Clubs. When Corinne decided that it was time to return to work she knew she needed a profession that allowed her to help people and also created a healthier work-life balance. After helping a friend look at properties she realized her passion for real estate.
Corinne’s goal in this business is to make every client feel like family. She knows how stressful buying, selling or renting can be and will work tirelessly to get you the best deal and make the process go smoothly. Corinne understands that a house is not just a place to live but a home. And as Dorothy says, "There's no place like home.
