Guardian Real Estate Services welcomes Michelle Anderson, Development Associate, to our growing Development Team! Michelle recently achieved her Masters of Urban and Regional Planning degree and Real Estate Development Graduate Certificate from Portland State University. She focused on innovative housing options, urban design, neighborhood involvement, and the intersection of land use planning and development. Previously, Michelle worked for the City of Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability where she helped with public outreach efforts for the 2035 Comprehensive Plan Update. She also worked for KPFF Consulting Engineers as a Project Administrator where she assisted project engineers with the construction administration process as well as other aspects throughout the design phases of each project. Guardian’s Development team continues to demonstrate expertise and passion in developing high-quality multifamily residential properties in the Northwest, and we’re fortunate to have attracted Michelle to this position.
When she isn’t working, this San Diego native has some pretty neat hobbies, so we thought it was only fitting to include a few fun facts:
1. Before Guardian swept her up, she planned on renovating a 8′ x 8′ playhouse into her very own “tiny house”.
2. Her passion for urban development doesn’t stop with the housing industry. She is currently knee deep in the 750 page influential book, The High Cost of Free Parking by Donald Shoup.
3. Michelle is the proud owner of a Vespa Scooter named Piglet, and has plans to ride it from San Diego up the California Coast.
Welcome to Guardian, Michelle!
