Michele Motley-DeGuenther Realtor, CIPS, CPRES
Although born in England, as a child Michele embarked on a life as an expat living in Alaska, South Africa, Mozambique, Dubai (UAE) and Oman before arriving here in Tampa 22 years ago. She has moved over 20 times so if there is one thing she knows it is how to pack and unpack!
Michele’s career thus far has been diverse starting by keeping engineers organized and on track with projects in the oil and gas industry. She then moved on to running a US Embassy social club providing a taste of home to both civilian and military personnel posted there. Travel and tourism brought her to Florida where she spent almost two decades at AAA. As a group tour planner, hotel packaging manager and travel account manager providing AAA members with unforgettable journeys of discovery, she built relationships with preferred tour and rail partners to bring additional value to those vacations unobtainable elsewhere.
Michele excelled in making “moving” memorable experiences; however now it is time to help others plan and organize their home buying/selling experience so they can make memories at home. As a Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS), Michele can help with the intricacies in buying and selling property as a foreigner here in the Tampa Bay Area. Also having dealt with the affairs of a family member's estate, Michele is a Certified Probate Real Estate Specialist (CPRES). Now you can turn to her should you find yourself handling this overwhelming role to alleviate some stress associated with those duties.
In her spare time, she is a weekend warrior in the home improvement line alongside her entertaining hubby Robert. They love to travel and both of them have a soft spot for animal welfare, hoping one day to be foster parents to guide dogs in training.
