Michelle Toche brings in over 7 years of experience in Leasing, Residential Real Estate Sales, New Home Sales and Real Estate Operations. Believing that details are what take you from good to great, Michelle is excited to implement that mindset and ensure that all of our clients have a smooth, transparent, secure transaction, while continuing to receive the absolute top rate customer service and care our team is known for.

Michelle was raised in south central Indiana, but left the Midwest to attend Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana, where she graduated with degrees in Political Science and International Development. Directly after college, Michelle moved to Washington, D.C. to experience the political arena first hand. After gaining valuable skills and insights in government affairs and lobbying, Michelle returned to New Orleans to discover a new path.

She spent most of her real estate career helping revitalize the city after Hurricane Katrina through residential home sales in the Uptown and Garden District areas.

Years later, her new love is her family: husband, daughter and son. She was happy to return to Northern Virginia with them and enjoys taking advantage of everything there is to do in this area, especially the wineries, history, national parks and festivals!
