More About Me

Michelle Runzler- Your Relocation Expert! 

With over 20 personal moves over the past 10 years, Michelle is back in her hometown of Santa Cruz. Married to a former SF Giants player, she constantly moved around the country, from the West Coast to East Coast, the Midwest, the South, and even Japan. 

Inspired by these baseball-related moves, Michelle developed a passion for real estate and developed a large network of real estate professionals and professional moving services in Santa Cruz and across the country. She knows first hand the stresses of buying, selling, and renting a home- often 3,000 miles away. She will not only help you buy or sell, but will assist you in all aspects of your moving process.
Prior to joining David Lyng, Michelle graduated from Occidental College with a BA in Psychology and received her MA in Journalism from the University of Southern California (USC). She spent seven years working in TV news for CBS, NBC, ABC, and Yahoo Sports- covering everything from world events, the USC football team, and Bay Area sports. 
Michelle's home base is in Soquel, CA with her husband, Dan, two kids, Ryan and Quinn, and her large Basset Hound named Wilbur. In her free time, she enjoys volunteering in her kids' classrooms, hitting the tennis court, and spending time at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk with her family.
