Not all real estate sales teams are created equal. TEAM PLUNKETT combines the experience of two very accomplished agents: Trevor Plunkett and Michelle Plunkett. This husband and wife team merges their talents, skills, experience, resources, and education to bring you a more user-friendly experience when buying or selling real estate. Unlike some larger teams, you will work with Trevor and Michelle directly and you will not be delegated to junior team members. After listening closely to clients, a customized approach is created to meet the client’s goals. Your current purchase or sale is not the main focus; the intent is to build a life long partnership extending way beyond the close of escrow. When needed, TEAM PLUNKETT is there for you and your family.
Buying or selling a property is likely one of the biggest transactions in your life. This event will impact other facets of your life and it is my goal to help you plan and coordinate in order to help you smoothly move through this transition.
My approach is to go beyond sales tactics and become your advisor. I am uniquely qualified to bring added value to the deal based on my professional background.
Prior to obtaining my broker’s license in 2011, I had a successful career in the world of tax and accounting after becoming a CPA. These skills become helpful in walking clients through the financial impacts of their transaction.
Additionally, after receiving my J.D. from the USC Law Center, I became a member of the California State Bar Association. These skills enable me to explain the responsibilities and obligations connected to real estate transactions and answer many client questions in this regard.
I am very well networked with some of the best agents in the South Bay beach cities and surrounding areas. This helps me find the right properties for my buyers and target the right agents for my seller’s properties. At the beginning of my real estate career, I joined a top producing team where I honed my skills in a high volume environment. I left that team to start a new team with my husband, Trevor, so that we could bring a higher level of service to each client. I strive to make this real estate process as user-friendly as possible in order to make this experience better for our clients.
How important is it to you and your family to own your home? As an immigrant from Ireland, I was drawn to real estate for many of the same reasons I was drawn to the U.S. – the “American Dream.” This great country provided me with the opportunity to build my own business, own my own home and make my own future. I began by working in the construction industry, later creating my own home improvement company, and then became a licensed real estate agent in 2001.
My previous construction experience adds great value when assessing inspection reports, evaluating property condition or quantifying repair requests and dealing with various contractors and servicemen. This results in better repair requests, preparation for sale and better choices of technicians and scope of work to be performed.
Our local market consists of many very unique properties making property valuation a more difficult, yet very essential, component of every deal. My years of real estate experience in the South Bay beach cities and surrounding areas strengthen the quality of accuracy of my property value opinions. The strength of my relationships with local agents increases my knowledge of off-market and pending deals resulting in more current information for these value opinions. These relationships also help in matching buyers, sellers and properties.
As a survivor of Leukemia, thanks to a successful stem cell transplant in 1998 made possible by my donor-sister, Sandra, I support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
