Prior to real estate, Michelle was a territory manager for an industrial chemical company, but she left corporate life behind, inspired to enhanced neighborhoods through development. Recruited by a top developer, Michelle served as a sales and marketing director responsible for launching impressive Nashville luxury high-rises. In those roles she also honed her ability to close a large volume of business, execute high-level marketing campaigns and work closely with buyers at all experience levels.
Originally from California, Michelle grew up an Air Force brat and counts her current residence as the 25th home she's lived in — making real estate her ideal occupation. Over her 20-plus years in Nashville, she's experienced a wide range of neighborhoods and living experiences — from a 1920's Victorian near Five Points to her current home in Williamson County's new Westhaven neighborhood. Her nomadic spirit takes her on frequent trips to visit family across the country, while at home, her full and happy home includes her fiancé, their four children, an old dog and a fat cat.
Nashville native Amanda Gleaton is the kind of in-the-know realtor who makes every home search and sale well-informed, successful, and most of all, enjoyable. Inspired to become a Realtor after her own Nashville homebuying experience, she knows firsthand the difference a great real estate professional can make. With a reputation for always being one step ahead, Amanda has her finger on the pulse of the city, whether that's the hottest new restaurant or the next emerging neighborhood.
Sales and an appreciation for impeccable customer service run in Amanda's blood. Multiple relatives, including her own husband, are realtors, and her father was a lifelong salesman who instilled in her early on the importance of investing in people. Prior to real estate, Amanda honed her own stellar sales and service skills managing local boutiques, including all merchandising, buying, styling and networking with influential, high-profile clientele.
Amanda holds a bachelor's degree in fashion design from Savannah College of Art and Design. She has a passion for adventure and travel, and an abiding appreciation for art, fashion, and design of all kinds. When she's not hard at work with clients, you'll find her spending time with her family and two dogs. Amanda loves and understands the importance of giving back and has recently joined the board at the Ronald McDonald House in Nashville and is an avid supporter of Agape Animal rescue.
Devoted Nashville realtor Bonnie McNichols believes that buying or selling a home should be an enjoyable adventure focused on creating new beginnings and reaching financial goals. With that in mind, she works as a tireless advocate for her clients, guiding them through each step with attentive service and extensive know-how.
She's responsive and thorough, and clients repeatedly commend her willingness to give generously of her time. She has an almost effortless ability to make the whole process seamless and successful, no matter the challenges, and her reward has been a long list of repeat business and referrals.
As a Nashville area native with 10 years real estate experience, clients benefit from her deep understanding of both the city and the suburbs. And, as an avid local investor herself, she can be counted on for her sharp ability to spot value and potential ROI.
Bonnie holds a bachelor's degree in hospitality from the University of Tennessee, and she currently resides in downtown Nashville with her husband and son. She enjoys quality time spent with family, exploring the local restaurant scene, and travel, but she always hurries back to Nashville — the city that encompasses everything one could want in a place to call home.
