Sales Associate Michele Ikemire joined the Terra Firma Global Partners Napa Offices in 2015, bringing with her a wealth of community connections and experience in public relations. Spending nearly two decades as an educator in Napa schools, has given Michele a unique opportunity to hone her listening, negotiating and collaborative skill set to meet her client needs. This is a perfect career transition for Michele, who can implement her strong organizational and communication abilities to provide exemplary service to her clients.
Michele grew up in Ventura, California and attended UCLA as an undergraduate. As a college student, Michele worked with Touchstone Pictures as a public relations intern while traveling around the country. After graduating from UCLA and completing her teaching credential, she secured a teaching position in the Napa Valley and made it her home.
Community school involvement has been a priority throughout Michele’s career, including serving on the parent council at Stone Bridge School where both of her children attended. She also co-chaired the annual SBS fundraiser for two consecutive years. Michele has volunteered at numerous community events, including Wine, Women and Shoes, the Napa Valley Wine Auction, The Table, and more.
Michele is passionate about fitness, particularly yoga and dance. She loves to travel, garden, cook and explore the Napa Valley in her free time. She also enjoys horseback riding and walks with her beloved dog, Turbo.
“I’m so lucky to call Napa Valley my home! I know this remarkable valley extremely well and have watched it grow through many exciting transitions. The impetus for me to make real estate my new career was what I feel a home represents to families and individuals. A home is where we make memories, where we love and entertain family and friends. Home is where we deepen connections, where we rest and recover after a long day, and where we bask in the joy of holidays and celebrations. I believe helping people realize their goal of home ownership is one of the most rewarding experiences I can imagine being part of. I believe helping people find the right home for them is the greatest service I can provide. My desire is to help buyers and sellers navigate the process seamlessly from start to finish. I chose to join Terra Firma Global Partners for the integrity of their leadership, the stellar reputation of their sales team and their commitment to giving back to the local community. Terra Firma Global Partners focuses on the agent/client relationship and fosters that connection for a lifetime. I am honored to be a part of the Terra Firma team and to be of service to my home community” says Michele.
