Michelle Petersen is a caring professional with the knowledge, insights and experience to ensure that her clients achieve their real estate goals. After earning her Bachelor’s Degree from Eastern Illinois University, Michelle enjoyed a very successful 20-career in the hospitality industry, including senior positions in restaurant management and training & development. Thriving in such demanding careers, Michelle honed her ability to problem solve in a fast-paced environment. An attentive listener as well as an excellent communicator, she starts every client relationship by gaining a clear understanding of their real estate goals. Then she proceeds by sharing the information, data and guidance that her clients need to make informed decisions at each step of their transaction.

Entrepreneurial by nature, Michelle has also founded a home organization company that guides clients through the sometimes difficult process of decluttering and downsizing. Mise En Place Home Edits as well as her real estate career both reflect Michelle’s longtime passion for helping people to find and create homes and lives that are safe, efficient, peaceful—and perfectly suited to their personal style and daily routines. Michelle is keenly aware that selling or buying a home can be one of the most important events in a person’s life, and she goes above-and-beyond to ensure that the process is as smooth and stress-free as possible. She is a sharp negotiator and a staunch client advocate how takes pride in the enduring customer-relationships that she has cultivated throughout her career.

A lifelong resident of Chicago’s Norwood Park neighborhood, Michelle believes firmly in giving back to her community; she is a member of several organizations including the Edison Park Chamber of Commerce, Hitch School PTA, Friends of Rickover Naval Academy, and Boy Scouts Committee Troop 957. When she is not assisting her clients or volunteering her time, Michelle enjoys spending time with her family – whether that’s an outing to the neighborhood park with her husband and two sons or trying out a new local restaurant.
