Born in Fort Worth, and later transplanted in Houston, Machelle moved to Austin in 1975 to attend college at the University of Texas studying business, design, marketing. She loves animals, spending time outdoors, traveling, thrift shopping and volunteering in her spare time. Her proudest achievement, however, is her son Jonathan—whom is attending the University of Denver Graduate Program of Construction Management-Design Build Engineering. For Machelle, motherhood has been the greatest gift of her life.

Machelle moved to Houston in the mid 80’s and began working in New Home Sales. She then moved on to asset management REO sales with the largest S & L at the time—a historic period in Texas. It was during this time Machelle began to meet and foster relationships with many seasoned agents and real estate companies in Texas. Little did she realize this experience would launch what would become a 25-year career owning her own company.

In 1989 Machelle started her business, MJM Investments, purchasing her first Austin property in Tarrytown. With a focus in the UT/ Central Austin area, she began what would be a long career in real estate ownership, acquisition and management. These were some of her favorite times, fixing and flipping properties, working with contractors on-site and learning all the intricacies of the industry. In 2009, after MJM sold its last large property, Machelle went on to work for student-housing companies and later renewed her real estate license in 2014. She  sold over $7.5 million in small investment properties while also leasing in the UT area, as Top Producer for 2 years. After joining Homecity Real Estate, Machelle won ” Rising Star” and “Rookie of the Quarter” ultimately winning Top Producer for fall quarter of 2017!  She continued to succeed and thrive in a competitive industry that awarded her as a nominee for the 2019 PT-500.

Machelle ascribes her entrepreneurial spirit as a gift. Starting as a young girl selling homemade pillows door-to-door, Machelle’s tenacity has always proven its purpose. Although life has thrown its curve balls in her direction, she continues to get back up to the plate with a more empathetic heart. Machelle is an agent that truly cares about her clients’ goals and aspirations—her own success measured in response to meeting their best interests.

The knowledge and life lessons learned over the course of a 40-year career in marketing and real estate is the foundation of Machelle’s ability to act as an informed agent; her spirit and passion for the industry is what makes her a trusted confidant. She will truly be your forever realtor advisor friend.
