The Visionary

A native San Franciscan, Michelle knows her way around the hills and microclimates of the city’s neighborhoods, as well as the intricacies of its often complex real estate marketplace. Hardworking, direct, and dedicated, Michelle’s commitment to excellence, marketing expertise, and negotiating prowess have built a clientele that refers her services often. Her enormous energy, enthusiasm, and professionalism makes life easier for her clients and team.

Currently residing in Noe Valley with her three children, Michelle enjoys the architecture, food, arts, natural beauty, and rich history of the city she’s proud to call home.


Three steps on how to sell a home in San Francisco, CA:
1. Onboard with Michelle Pender, Compass Real Estate Agent.
2. Listen and follow her advice.
3. Enjoy.
Since I had absolutely no experience in selling a home, I completely relied on Michelle’s expertise, and it totally paid off! Michelle made selling my condo in Noe Valley seamless, easy and effortless. She has incredible insight on the San Francisco housing market, superior marketing strategies, and outstanding interpersonal talent. She sold my home in 8 days for a significant amount over listing price. Thank you Michelle!

Michelle helped my husband and I buy our very first home. Being first time home buyers we were new to everything and Michelle helped us to navigate our way through the process with ease and she made it fun!! If you are looking for someone who is always in your corner and willing to do whatever it takes to get the place you absolutely love, then Michelle is for you. She is someone who is determined to get you what you want and is not afraid to give you advice you don’t always want to hear, but that you sometimes need to. She is the perfect combination of professional, knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Working with Michelle as our buying agent has been a very good experience. Michelle’s knowledge of the market, her energy and enthusiasm all combine to make the real estate transaction process a very enjoyable one. We were most impressed by how Michelle supported us even after the transaction had closed. This demonstrated her commitment to her profession and to her customers. We hope to work with her again in the future.

Michelle recently sold our loft in Dogpatch. While she doesn’t live in Dogpatch, she has clearly made an effort to learn as much as possible about it. We certainly appreciated her keen knowledge how to market our loft for the demographic likely to want to move into Dogpatch. Due to our schedule, we needed to sell our loft in a timely fashion: she was able to set and keep a tight schedule, making sure that everything was done on time. While she exhibits a high degree of honesty and professionalism, she is just naturally a friendly person, so I think everyone with whom she is dealing can enjoy friendly interactions while being fully confident that all necessary business will be completed correctly and on time


Recommend Michelle for anyone who is planning on selling their home. My condo development has been in litigation for while, a circumstance which can make selling the property an extremely long-winded process. Michelle was a guru at marketing my condo, hosted several open houses to better expose my property to the public and was able to get my condo in contract in just 2 weeks! Because of her great marketing efforts, we received MULTIPLE offers! Michelle has a fantastic team, ranging from GREAT (affordable) stager, top-notch photographer, reliable handy-man, and detailed assistants whch made the entire process stream-lined. Thank you MIchelle! You are my realtor for life and I will am very comfortable referring all of my friends and family to you.

Whether you’re selling or buying a property, Michelle Pender is your Real Estate Advocate!  When we decided to sell our house there was no question in my mind that Michelle would handle it. She took on the job with gusto & professionalism! Her dedication & love for her profession shows. We had an offer within two weekends of open house & a closing within 5 weeks. She’s the ultimate pro & we’re glad she was on our side!

We highly recommend her for your real estate needs.

My husband and I had a great experience working with Michelle.  Michelle sold our tiny TIC in Nopa for a great price which led the way to the purchase of our dream home in Bernal. We couldn’t have done this without her.  Michelle was continually willing to go the extra mile for us; through the challenges of selling our TIC, to the multitude of offers she helped write, Michelle always worked hard and did it with a smile.

I couldn’t have asked for a better agent.  In a competitive market like San Francisco, buyers inevitably face discouraging moments and disappointment.  Michelle kept us optimistic throughout the process and we eventually landed on the perfect home.

Michelle made buying our first home super fun and stress free. She seems to know everyone in the industry (and they all like her!) which definitely helped us get our offer accepted in the competitive market. She stuck with us for over a year of looking and never made us feel bad for our relatively low budget and indecision. We now have a new home and a new friend and are so happy we made the decision to go with Michelle!

First time buyer here.  Michelle was very professional and trustworthy from the start.  She took our needs/wants into account and helped guide us through the whole process, start to finish.  She was always upfront when responding to questions and made sure we wasted no time in our search.  She was very vigilant in making sure our best interests were always represented as the deal went through.

Michelle still checks in with us months after the purchase to make sure we are happy.  Look forward to doing business with Michelle in the years to come.  I’d highly recommend Michelle for a first time buyer.

Michelle was half of a team that was representing for the sale of my home. She was very professional and did an especially good job with the open houses and getting the bids organized. She is very energetic and personable. She has a nice personal style that was a great asset for the sale of my home and did a very good job. I can recommend her without reservation.
