Michele Ikemire joined Terra Firma Global Partners in 2014. Residing in Napa for over 20 years, she brings with her a wealth of community connections and a vested interest in helping people achieve financial freedom through home ownership. Michele believes that Trust, Collaboration and Communication are the three tenants to a successful real estate transaction. Her clients repeatedly refer her because she’s a trusted advisor and someone who will go the extra mile to meet her client’s needs.
Prior to being a real estate consultant, Michele had a successful career as an educator in our Napa schools. This professional experience has given her a unique opportunity to hone her listening and negotiating skill set to achieve her clients’ goals. Strong organizational skills and clear communication ensures that components of the sale move along in a seamless fashion, with transparency for all parties involved.
As a real estate professional, Michele has served on the local Napa Chapter council. She is active in organized real estate and attends industry events to stay current in an ever-changing market. As a regular attendee at weekly marketing meetings and tours, she has a pulse on the housing inventory and knows how to gage the market to advise her clients before they buy or sell.
Michele aligned herself with Terra Firma Global Partners because of the company’s commitment to giving back to local non-profits in all the communities they serve, and their philosophy of collaboration, support and excellence. She partners with other associates in order to provide a level of expertise and concierge level service that stands apart from the rest.
Michele loves to travel, garden, cook and explore the Napa Valley in her free time. She also enjoys horseback riding, yoga and walks with her beloved Samoyed, Turbo. As a community advocate, she supports the work of Habitat for Humanity, Sunrise Horse Rescue, Teens Connect and other local non-profits.
