Michele Rennie

There are some places that on arrival, you instantly feel at home - Walla Walla felt that way from my first visit in 2001. More than a decade later and my husband and I know that we have found the good life here in Walla Walla.

On that first visit, I was working for Ste. Michelle Wine Estates in Woodinville, Wash as Direct-to-Consumer Marketing Manager for their Washington and California wineries. However, once they built Northstar Winery, I knew that I had to live here.

Since then, my career has transitioned naturally into winery and wine tourism consultant, wine marketing educator and innkeeper. With owning a vineyard inn here in Walla Walla for more than a decade, I was able to really hone the valuable skills of customer service, communications, marketing and problem-solving.

Becoming a real estate broker in 2014 was the natural evolution of this career path. And as a real estate professional, I enjoy using my expertise and my deep love for Walla Walla to assist my clients in finding their new home or the perfect property to launch their business.  Let’s work together and find that perfect home or business property for your slice of the Walla Walla good life. 

The best part of real estate is when your clients become your friends and they share their love of Walla Walla with their friends and family.
