Michelle Desautels REALTOR
Michelle brings extensive experience in sales and customer service to her career as a REALTOR. For 20 years, Michelle has been perfecting her service and managerial skills in the food industry. After graduating from Paul Smith’s College, she had a successful career as a Business Development Manager with Sysco Foods, selling and servicing clients throughout upstate New York and Vermont. Recognized for her contract negotiation and organizational skills, her greatest satisfaction came from cross utilizing her skills in management, nutrition, and menu preparation to help her clients. “Every good restaurateur wants to connect with their guests, creating a comfortable experience and lasting impression,” says Michelle, “I will work to do the same with my real estate clients.” Michelle and her family enjoy spending as much time outside enjoying the beauty of Vermont's four seasons.
