Sales Associate


Michele Ikemire joined Terra Firma Global Partners in the fall of 2013 after completing a successful career as a Napa educator. With her extensive community connections and outgoing, approachable nature, she quickly became established in the Napa real estate community. A big part for Michele’s success in real estate is her ability to clearly see what her clients need to achieve their goals. She is a team player and always holds the best interests of her clients in mind. With strong communication skills, and a desire for excellence in all she does, her clients experience the highest level of support and service. She has been actively involved in the Napa Chapter for NorBAR, the Scholarship Committee, the Luxury Marketing Council and the Chamber of Commerce.

Michele enjoys being a part of community events and is a regular volunteer at Sunrise Horse Rescue and The Table in her spare time. She supports local nonprofits: Teens Connect, Habitat for Humanity, Sunrise Horse Rescue 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 fortunate to call Napa Valley my home! I know this remarkable valley well and have watched it grow through many exciting transitions. Selling real estate is so rewarding because a home is where we make memories, where we love and entertain family and friends. Home is where we deepen connections, and where we bask in the joy of holidays and celebrations.

I believe helping people find the right home is the greatest service I can provide. I chose to join Terra Firma Global Partners for the integrity of their leadership, the stellar reputation of their team and their commitment to giving back to the local community. Terra Firma Global Partners focuses on relationships for a lifetime. I am honored to be a part of the Terra Firma family and to be of service to my home community.”
