My name is Michelle Howerton, I have been on theRuhl & Ruhl team for over two years. I am a life-long resident of the upper Midwest having called the Iowa, Quad-Cities area home since 2002 where my husband Mike and I raised our two daughters, Alissa and Becky. Mike and I enjoy the people, culture and the many outdoor activities that the area makes available to us. I was raised in a retail and 'real estate family' which is where I honed my customer service skills. While my career was not spent in real estate the common thread has been to provide the best customer service possible. Whether you are buying or selling, I understand the process can often be challenging. I believe that part of my responsibility as your real estate agent is to not only put the clients best interests first but also to educate them throughout the entire process so they can make the best possible decision. I've always believed that family is the most important component in our lives. Helping someone write the next chapter of their life is what motivates me.
