Michelle Menke Fife’s father started his career in real estate and held his license for over 50 years. “My mom worked in real estate for a brief time as well, therefore many vacations were spent looking at land, rather than the fun day we thought we had planned as kids,” she jokes. That’s why it felt like a natural progression when she decided to obtain her real estate license. “My dad was born and raised in Saint Petersburg and so am I. We have generational knowledge of the local area and the market, which really works in our clients’ favor.”
Affiliated with Keller Williams Realty St. Petersburg, Michelle strives to make the transaction process seamless and is dedicated to ensuring client satisfaction. “Real estate is all about service and practice. When I first started, I would cry all the time because I wasn’t sure if I was good at my job. The true knowledge comes when you’re living and breathing real estate day in and day out. Everything can be learned, but in order to truly succeed and build a repeat and referral network you need to provide great service. My clients come back to me because I genuinely care for them. I put all my passion into my work, and give it more than 100% every single time, and that’s evident to them.”
Going forward, Michelle is focused on continuing her work and further growing her business. She Is currently one of three sales associates—along with her colleagues Rachael Manzanares and Amber Bennett—selling Reflection St. Pete, a pre-construction condo in downtown Saint Petersburg. “Recently I’m really enjoying working with developers, understanding the process from start to finish, and seeing the scope of what it really takes to start a pre-construction condo project. I guess I’ve gotten the real estate bug, I just find it incredibly interesting to learn about the development side. I’m working with KW Developer Services and learning a whole new side of the industry. This is why I love real estate: every day is different. My plan is to continue growing and helping real estate buyers and sellers accomplish their dreams.”
