Michelle Garcia

Helping you find your happy place in CdA.

My name is Michelle Garcia, I’m a REALTOR here in the beautiful Coeur d’Alene area, and I love where I live which is why I want to share it with others.

Coeur d’Alene is one of the most beautiful areas in the country and I feel lucky to live here. Local or not, native or not, I want to personally welcome you to Coeur d’Alene.

That slogan, “5 Star Service Every Step of the Way” isn’t just a slogan. This is an actual quote from one of my clients’ Google reviews, of which I am very proud. So proud, I decided to make it my core principle and part of my mission statement. It means something to me and it’s how I want my clients to feel. My hope is, after working with me, you will agree 🙂

A Little More About My Backstory

I’m an entrepreneur at heart. My husband and I have owned businesses since 1996. I moved to the area in 2006 with my husband of 27+ years and our three amazing kids and we have never looked back.

I have found my happy place here in CDA. Originally my hubby and I both grew up in California but we made a conscious decision to pursue a slower pace with more outdoor activities in a family-friendly atmosphere. We found that here in Coeur d’Alene! I truly love where I live and am happy to share with others.

I would be honored if you’d allow me to help you find your happy place!
