Having lived in Lamorinda since 1978, the Holcenbergs know a thing or two about these towns and others nearby. Wendy and her husband Stan moved the family to Moraga back when there was a bowling alley, a Jack in the Box, and not too much else. Michelle and her brother grew up here, swimming at Campolindo Cabana Club and attending the local schools. Now with her own children Michelle and her husband live in nearby Orinda, because they realized a) there’s no place like home and b) they couldn’t think of a better place for their own children to grow up, attending great public schools, spending hours in the summer swimming and enjoying the local parks and outdoors, and being part of a tight-knit community.
Wendy has been selling real estate here since 1978 and Michelle joined her in 2003. They are a mother-daughter team with a combined more than 50 years experience in the area -- and they still speak to each other. The Holcenberg team offers an exceptional level of local area knowledge, marketing expertise, strong networking contacts, and well-honed negotiating skills. Their team approach allows them to offer unparalleled personal attention to each of their clients. From their efficient staff, to their use of leading-edge technology, and their established reputation with other agents, The Holcenbergs work hard to ensure smooth transactions. They handle the details big and small.
Michelle and her husband Reuben have two young sons and live in Orinda.
She and her husband are actively involved with Glorietta Elementary School and Meadow swim team.
In her spare time Michelle enjoys reading, writing, skiing, walking the Lafayette Reservoir and doing just about anything outdoors with her kids.
