After two years with Coldwell Banker, Courtney Michalek has joined Iconic Real Estate. Matt Scobee founded the firm last year. Michalek said she decided to make the move within five minutes of meeting with him.

“I like the team’s technological innovation and I just love Matt,” she said. “I think he has brought on a lot of good agents and I just wanted to be somewhere where I could have a little one-on-one help. I also love their branding.”

Michalek previously worked in technology sales. Unhappy with the direction of that career, she decided to pursue real estate. Her fiancé was developing properties in the Cedars, so she started off marketing and selling them. Before long she became one of the neighborhood’s most active agents.

“I absolutely love real estate- it’s probably the best job you can have,” Michalek said. “I have a flexible schedule, I get to see houses and I get to help people purchase their first home. It’s been a great new career.”
