Michelle Dery Estate Agent
Michelle came to high-end real estate after a career in fashion and public relations… having worked both as an editor for Condè Nast and as a PR professional for the firm of M. Michealman in New York. She also worked extensively as an interior decorator for ultra luxury yachts and residences throughout California, Europe, and the Caribbean… and is well versed in the needs of the yachting community.
Michelle began her real estate career in 2002 as a private investor, acquiring, renovating and decorating multiple homes for resale. Her personal success led to her collaboration with Liz Caldwell. She officially joined the Liz Caldwell team at EWM International Realty in 2010. Their relationship with Christie’s International Realty led to an inevitable move to Premier Estate Properties, with a focus on million-dollar plus waterfront residences.
Thanks to her diverse background, Michelle is quite expert at marketing and staging ultra luxury properties…and has a firm grasp of the financial and investment aspects of real estate as well. A consummate professional with an eye for detail, Michelle provides her clients with exceptional service in everything from property presentation and personal showings through complex contract negotiation.
A Fort Lauderdale resident since 1996, Michelle donates time and talents to such community organizations and charities as Beaux Arts, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Oceana, and the Saint Thomas Aquinas High School where she is an active parent volunteer.
