Get to Know Michelle Drum

I am passionate about real estate and enjoy working with both buyers and sellers.  My education at Northwestern University and graduate work at  Columbia University focused on urban history/historic preservation. I have been a real estate agent since 1986 and remain in the top 10% of Realtors in Rhode Island. I focus on historic properties and estate homes. I live in a nationally registered former schoolhouse that is one block from my office.  When not working, I read voraciously, travel, play golf with friends and husband, sail, or hang out with our greyhound--Athena -- my cellphone always by my side..


I have several designations from Graduate Realtor Institute, (GRI) Accredited  Buyers Representative (ABR) and most importantly Certified Residential Specialist (CRS).

I have been a volunteer on many boards from the Newport Historical Society to the Newport Art Museum. I served for over a decade on the Newport Historic District Commission.

I was the President of my local neighborhoood organization, the Historic Hill Association also for over a decade.

I have served on many Realtor Boards from Education,Special Events, and Grievance and as a Director.  I was the  President of Newport County Board of Realtors, 2011, President ct of the Women's Council of Realtors,  2012
