Michele offers her clients an outstanding level of service.
With a background in Corporate Business, she brings an extensive knowledge and acumen in interior design to her position as a Licensed Real Estate Salesperson. Along with superior organisational and observational skills, she was born and bred in the Franklin district, giving her a 'local edge'. This allows Michele to complete every property transaction with sensitivity to her clients' needs and goals.
Prior to earning her Licence, Michele worked for some years in Christchurch as Canterbury Regional Manager for P&O Nedlloyd. She left Corporate life in the late nineties to raise her family, and, after some years, became involved in the building industry as co-owner of a nationwide group building company. This was where she honed her passion for building new homes. As a result of being involved in this company, Michele also gained experience in running one of the franchises. It also meant incorporating the interior design of show homes.
Michele's move into Real Estate in 2013 has seen her specializing in land and section sales. She's achieved spectacular success selling bare land and subdivisions. In fact in 2016 she was the No 1 agent in the Clarks Beach area of Franklin, selling in excess of $75million worth of property. It's kind of a natural progression, combining her flair for design, her dedication and her interpersonal skills.
With a love of music, Michele is an accomplished player of both saxophone and piano. She also enjoys all water-based sports including jet-skiing.

Michele Mathieson sold our lifestyle property in Waiau Pa in super quick time. Her professional approach and wide range of potential buyers worked very well for us. It was on the market for only 2 days before she sold it, and was successful in achieving above our asking price. We are very appreciative of her efforts and follow up after the sale was made.
I have dealt with many people and especially real estate agents. I have found Michele to be the most honest and reliable person I have dealt with thus far. If it wasn’t for her honesty and integrity I probably wouldn’t have hired her to work for me to sell my properties at Waiau Pa. It was refreshing to finally find a person who was honest enough to say what she meant no matter what the outcome. I guess I’m old school where you do deals on a hand shake but having said that it was nice to finally meet someone who had the same values. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Michele to anyone.

Michele has successfully sold 3 properties for us over the past year. Sha has made what is normally a stressful experience enjoyable and stress free. Everything we asked and agreed to was completed on time and to a very high quality. We believe this made a difference and resulted in the quick sale of two properties. It’s also nice to feel the agent is working for the vendor. This is exactly how we feel Michele has approached things on our behalf. From the time of listing Michele was committed to selling our property. Her absolute commitment was confirmed when we met late one evening to receive an offer. We counter signed and rather than waiting to meet with the purchaser the next day, she drove from Clarks beach to St Marys Bay to get the purchaser to agree to our counter offer. I understand Michele got home that evening at 11:30pm. What Michele does over and above any agent we have dealt with before is she goes the extra mile. We were surprised to hear she was helping another agent sell one of our purchaser’s properties so they could then agree to buy our property. Surprise for us was she was doing this in her free time to make sure our property would sell. Michele has been a dream agent and, more importantly, we have achieved above expectation settlements which has meant our next property has been better than we thought we could afford. Great out come and we are very happy.
