As a proud member of the Opelika Chamber of Commerce, Michy loves to help members of her community find their dream home. Michy’s husband Tim is a Navy pilot and the family has relocated several times and weathered multiple deployments. She understands all too well the stress of military life, and she gets great satisfaction out of using that experience to help clients, and especially military families, through that sometimes challenging process.

A top producer at Three Sixty, Michy is always looking for ways to improve her knowledge in order to make things easier for her clients. She is a certified Military Relocation Professional (MRP), a program educates REALTORS® about working with U.S. service members and their families and veterans to find the housing solutions that best suit their needs and to take full advantage of available benefits and support. Additionally, she is currently working on her Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) Certification, a series of courses focused on knowledge needed for agents working directly with buyer-clients.

On the Road Again – This time, Inman Connect in NYC!

 IMG_6501.JPG copyThe past year has been full of hard work and lots of fun working with the Three Sixty team. I was so proud and thankful that Tricia and Nonet selected me to attend the Inman Connect conference in NYC as recognition of my hard work. Never have I been in a room with so many people who were so excited about selling real estate. It was amazing and made me want to come home and work harder!

This was my first real overnight trip without my daughter Anna, who is 20 months old. Nonet and Tricia made sure to keep me busy and they didn’t mind the early morning Facetime with a screaming toddler. The conference was the perfect place to keep my mind off of being away from my girl. Teams were part of almost every lecture and reminded me that I am so thankful to work in a great team environment. It was great to meet agents from other markets. I really enjoyed comparing notes with people from all over the country.

There are a lot of amazing products out there that will make my job and my clients lives easier. You need to embrace them now before someone else does.  One of the many things I love about Three Sixty is we are always looking for the next great service we can bring our clients.

A huge thank you to Tricia and Nonet for taking me on this trip. I learned more than I can put into words and have a renewed passion for what I do everyday. I couldn’t ask for a better trip or a more fulfilling place to work!
