A third-generation San Francisco native and top-producing agent, Michelle Long brings her expert negotiating skills, local knowledge, and real estate expertise to The Agency.
Licensed since 1999, Michelle has extensive experience with home, condominium, Tenants in Common, and apartment building transactions across San Francisco’s most distinguished neighborhoods. A savvy and experienced negotiator, she has proven a strong advocate for a wide-ranging clientele, from first-time homebuyers to sophisticated investors, serving as a trusted adviser throughout every step of a real estate transaction.
Equal parts graceful and tenacious, Michelle listens closely to each client, helping them think creatively to articulate their needs and achieve their goals. With substantial experience helping clients prepare their properties for sale—from supervising renovations to working with home stagers to maximize a home’s selling price—Michelle’s hands-on approach and incomparable neighborhood expertise has earned her a loyal clientele built heavily upon referrals and repeat business.
Born and raised in San Francisco, Michelle was enamored by the city’s architecture and real estate from a young age. After purchasing her first two-unit property in 1998, she realized her passion and set out to pursue a career in real estate. Prior to real estate, Michelle spent several years working in the fast-paced world of film and television, a business which required quick decision-making skills and the ability to keep calm under pressure, traits which have carried over seamlessly to her career as an agent.
A graduate of San Francisco State University, Michelle enjoys studying Spanish, traveling, spending time at soccer games with her son and equestrian shows with her daughter, hiking, watching films, and exploring the city’s new restaurants. She devotes her time and resources to 826 Valencia, SFFD Toy Program, and Operation Rainbow.
