My Journey to Pay It Forward
Broker Associate, Brokers Guild
Founder/Owner Team Pay It Forward
My Journey to Team Pay It Forward. From 2000-2002, I traveled around the world as a volunteer missionary. While in India, I was fortunate to volunteer in orphanages, assist families in leprosy villages, and partner with Rescue and Resort Ministries helping street children (my personal favorite).
I then went to South Africa where I assisted “Door of Hope” care for abandoned babies. I loved meeting locals, building relationships and doing what I could to help those we met – it’s hard to describe the feeling of standing in the gap helping those who can’t pay you back.
After my volunteering time was over, I started working at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, LLC from 2002-2016. My position at the Ritz-Carlton helped build and sharpen my customer service skills. To excel in my position, it was critical that I build solid relationships, be proactive to spot and solve potential problems, execute contracts daily, and communicate all changes and decisions to my talented team around me. In 2016, I made the decision to become my own business owner. I received my real estate license and began to build a company that would help people.
I feel incredibly blessed to merge my life experiences and career goals to be a force of good. During closing, we will Pay It Forward 20% of our commission (10 % to our charity, Team Pay It Forward and 10% to an organization of YOUR choosing). Each of my clients have unique experiences, passions and dreams and I appreciate getting to know you through this process. Thank you for partnering with me and with this program because our partnership goes one step beyond real estate.

Michaela moved to Colorado in 2002 and found a home in the Vail Valley working at the Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch. I worked in the service industry in the mountains for 8 years before moving to Denver and finding my true calling in real estate. I have now been in the real estate industry since 2012, originally starting as a Realtor with Coldwell Banker.
I have always had a passion for helping people in whatever way possible. By joining Team Pay It Forward, I’m excited to extend a helping hand to many non-profits all while doing what I love- real estate. It’s a match made in heaven!
I look at someone like Tim Tebow, who has taken his popularity and love of Christ to start a foundation that helps so many and it makes me realize that one person can make a difference.
This is our way to give back to our community, by providing outstanding service in real estate all while donating to charitable organizations that our clients are passionate about. It creates a strong bond with our clients as they know they are making a difference too.
I live in the southern Metro area and am enjoying the Colorado life as a wife and mother to my two wonderful children, Roman and Grace. I enjoy being outside hiking, biking and snowboarding. God has blessed us abundantly living in this magnificent state, I just hope to give back.
It has been a dream to make a difference, to help others, to change the world, even in a small way. Team Pay It Forward is making a difference with every real estate transaction. Our hope is that you will allow us to make a difference at every closing. Allow us to Pay It Forward to what you are passionate about….together we can change the world!
