About Michele

Came to FL from NY with my family as a little girl, settled in the friendliest town ever, Rockledge FL, where I raised my family. Business owner of American Medical Transcription Service and also a Realtor. I love real estate, love working with people, helping them find a perfect home or make their home perfect for them! Newly married, my husband and I are on an adventure in Blue Ridge Georgia where we've built a home and are opening 'Blue Ridge Bagel Depot', coming January 1.

Michele purchased this house in 2007

Why Michele chose Rockledge

An avid bicyclist, I would take morning and evening breaks along the Indian River Lagoon daily to restore peace of mind. The feeling I got from being on the River was amazing. Refreshed, revitalized, clear. One day while taking a ride I asked myself, 'what would it take to feel this way all the time?' Simple answer of course, 'find a home riverside'. Not so simple though! As a single mom of two, self-employed, this seemed out of reach. One day I took a different bike route and stopped momentarily to wait for my daughter who was trailing behind in protest. When I looked up, I saw this home, with a "for sale" sign. She caught up to me, and asked, 'This is our house, isn't it?' And so began our journey! You'll know from the moment you step into this home that it is truly one-of-a-kind. Built by Architect Richard Rummell in 1925, this is one of the last remaining of the homes built in the Valencia Subdivision in the mid-20's.

What makes this house unique

Quarter-sawn oak and Heart Pine floors, archways, inside and outside fireplaces, lovely gardens front and back, French doors open to paved patio, many original features such as built-in shelving and closets, original light fixtures...CHARM CHARM CHARM!!!

History and location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Rockledge. The location was perfect for our plans. Quiet street, just a block from the water from where we even got to see an evening rocket launch! Michele was a gracious host, very responsive and concerned for our comfort. Downtown Cocoa Village charming, with some good restaurants. Very pleased.

Lovely location, lovely home.

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect for us since our family is withing walking distance of this property. We used the bicycles offered to ride down the river road. The home is nicely decorated, the kitchen is nicely appointed. Restaurants and happenings within historic Cocoa Village is a plus. The beach is just minutes away. I would recommend this property. This is a nicely managed rental.
