About Michele Russell | Leonard Ryden Burr Real Estate


Meet Christy:
Originally from Hickory, NC, Christy moved to the Triad in 2003 after completing a Master’s Degree in Industrial Organizational Psychology from Middle Tennessee State University. After working for the State of North Carolina for ten years as a Counselor with Vocational Rehabilitation and a Probation and Parole Officer, she joined the private sector, working for Lowes Home Improvement in their new Accommodations Department.

Christy has long loved touring Open Houses after brunch at Mary’s or Finnigan’s Wake and seized the opportunity to make Real Estate a career after renovating and selling a home in 2016.

She and her family currently live in Clemmons West and stay busy with their two sons who attend the Arts Based School.

“I look forward to the opportunity to help you, your family and friends reach the goal of home ownership, whether you are a new home owner or right-sizing for your lifestyle.”


Meet Michele:
Michele has called the Triad her home since 1993.  Growing up, she loved the adventure of finding a new house to call home with her parents and 3 brothers, who relocated from Indiana, Illinois and then Georgia for her father’s career.

With over 30 years of customer service experience, including real estate information in Atlanta, to restaurant management here in Winston-Salem, Michele focuses on listening to her clients to understand their wants and needs.

Talking to Michele, her pride in family is immediately evident. Her husband, is an Art teacher in the Forsyth County School system as well as a musician and their daughter who is blessed with her father’s talents.  You will see Chunks, the dog, in every Christmas card.

“Whether it be through real estate, family, friends, church or volunteer work I am committed to building strong, lasting relationships in the community & look forward to assisting clients with all real estate needs.”
