Professional Background

A year after graduation Michele achieved her dream of landing a job in the pharmaceutical industry and worked as a salesperson marketing pharmaceuticals for diabetes, coronary heart disease and infectious disease with Bristol Myers Squibb. After 12 years with Bristol Myers including winning the esteemed Pinnacle award in 2003 Michele decided to leave and focus totally on a career as a Realtor full time and landlord/investor.

She was initially licensed as a Realtor in 2000 and began to get experience part-time while still on her previous job during the day. Over her real estate career Michele has listed and sold homes throughout Essex and Union Counties.

In addition to marketing homes for clients Michele has gained unsurpassed experience as a landlord and property owner herself. With this personal experience, received over the last 17 years, she brings to the table more than most all other Realtors can offer.

In June of 2006 Michele earned the designation of Certified Residential Specialist (CRS); a distinction held by just 4% of Realtors nationwide. Added to that, she earned the designation of Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR) in January of 2008 and of course participates as a member of the National Board of Realtors and as a committee member of several West Essex Board of Realtors teams.

Personal Background

Michele Chiles-Hickman was born in Orange, New Jersey and is the older of two children of Sandra Chiles. Her mother worked as a Social Worker and it is safe to say that the backdrop of a social worker mother has been a good source of grounding throughout her life.

During school, at Boston College, Michele joined her sorority, Delta Sigma Theta in 1989 and participated with the service organization in many activities in and around Boston and continues as an active member in the Montclair Alumnae Chapter today.

Currently, Michele and her husband Stanford have raised four wonderful children in their community of Montclair (three are currently beyond high school). All of them are very active in their church; The Life Christian Church located in West Orange and are often found participating in everything from Host ministry to assisting in the Kport ministry. In addition to their church, they are consistent supporters of organizations like WorldVision, Human Needs Pantry, Montclair Art Museum, SOPAC, HOMECorp and A Better Chance (which funds the LEAD program).
