Customer satisfaction is Michelle Shields Hynes' greatest reward…and as she puts it, "a job well done." Michelle understands that finding a home is a stressful experience, and knows the importance of finding that balance between investment value and emotional fulfillment.
Having managed properties for years in Florida and the UK, Michelle has a keen sense of what makes a home a good investment. She is knowledgeable, patient and personable, and willing to work as long and hard as it takes to find her clients' dream homes. "Renting, buying and selling should not be a painful process; rather, an exhilarating one. With my help, it will be all that and more!"
Originally from Ireland, Michelle began her management degree in Ireland and whilst traveling to NYC during college summer holidays, decided to complete it here. She fell in love with the city, and spent many years in hospitality management, managing high-volume restaurants at JFK Airport, interacting with many international clients. After nearly two decades, she found a new love – real estate – and joined Citi Habitats. "I thoroughly enjoy the real estate industry, and absolutely love the challenges that accompany each and every sale!"
A New York City resident for almost 20 years, Michelle also owns a home in Ireland, as well as property in Orlando and the Catskill Mountains. In her free time, she has many interests that include yoga, cooking, good movies, ethnic cuisine, hiking, biking and travel, which she's done extensively.
