Micaela Giles

A resident of Connecticut for most of my life, I fell in love with the Pioneer Valley while visiting my brother and mother who relocated here in the mid-90s.I now live in Amherst, where I plan to grow old and gray with my husband and our blended family of four children.


Prior to moving to Amherst, I was a successful real estate agent in Connecticut for nearly a decade. During that time I also fixed and flipped homes in Connecticut, Rhode Island and Vermont.  Now that I've lived in the Valley for five years, I'm thrilled to be continuing my real estate career in partnership with my brother, Eric, as part of the Pioneer Valley HOME TEAM. Eric is brilliant with technology and has taught me how to use the latest tools to offer our clients the most up-to-date information, speed and convenience. 


As an agent and adviser, I work hard to elevate our profession to the standard that your largest financial investment deserves. As a result, I've closed on 100% of my listings, generally within 21 days, and my sales statistics reflect my dedication to my clients' interests. That said, I'm always most proud of my client satisfaction surveys in which I'm consistently rated as outstanding (the highest rating one can receive.)


Outside of work, I have training and experience in the fields of neuroscience, Reiki, whole foods nutrition, body-centered psychotherapy and yoga, which I use to help people suffering from trauma, anxiety and stress related health issues.


Some of my personal passions include yoga, meditation/mindfulness, day hikes, camping, and cooking/baking for family and friends.

Eric Duckett

New England born and raised, I first came to the Pioneer Valley to attend UMass, where I earned my degree in Sociology and Economics.  After college I worked 7 years as a professional tour guide, leading camping trips across North America - everywhere from Alaska to Belize. Having spent so much time in the outdoors, I have a strong commitment to sustainable building and environmental design. I love the progressive nature of the Pioneer Valley, so when it came time for me to settle down, it was an easy choice to return back home.


I'm excited to be working alongside and learning from my sister as part of the Pioneer Valley HOME TEAM at Jones Group REALTORS®. My financial, technical, and analytical strengths are a great compliment to her natural ability working with people and negotiating skills. Outside of work, I am a Certified Official in a number of High School sports, which is how I stay fit as well as active in the community. In my downtime I like to hike, bike, read and play basketball.
