For the past decade, she sat on the other side of the table. That gives her perspective that we treasure.

Michelle got her start in commercial real estate while still an undergrad at Seattle Pacific University. For two years, she worked as an assistant property manager for a private landlord. More recently, she spent eight years working for a prominent west coast office developer with a focus on leasing.

So while she’s a tenant rep broker at Kinzer now, she can still see commercial real estate through a landlord’s lens.

She says, “I understand landlords and their priorities. As a result, I can identify unique opportunities to add value for our clients.”

She goes on to say, “After interacting with various firms from the landlord perspective, I feel that Kinzer always stood out as the most creative, collaborate, and client-centric team.”

When not at Kinzer, Michelle has been highly involved with NAIOP, the commercial real estate development associating. In an associated program, she’s played an active role with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Puget Sound.

As a 5th generation Washingtonian, Michelle also enjoys exploring the great outdoors. She especially loves camping, backpacking, and skiing in the mountains.

Temporary Office Closure

Kinzer Partners’ office is closed temporarily in order to keep our employees safe and stop the spread of COVID-19. The safety of our employees, clients, partners, and vendors are of the utmost importance.

While we might not physically be sitting at our desks, we are still connected and available to assist you with any commercial real estate struggles you are having. We’d venture to say our work from home (WFH) dress codes might be ten times better than that in the office! A small solace during this crazy time.

If you have questions on anything regarding your real estate and how it is/has/will be changing in the current environment, don’t hesitate to reach out. We might not have all the answers but we will navigate the unknown right alongside you, offering support and virtual HH drinks when needed.

Wishing you safety, health and ask you to keep washing those hands!
