REALTOR® Magazine: Michelle Hardy-Rodriguez, who has scars from a serious car accident, helps soothe people's physical and emotional recovery

Las Vegas real estate agent Michelle Hardy-Rodriguez is no stranger to the difficulties of recovering from a traumatic event.

For two weeks, Hardy-Rodriguez of Realty One Group was in the hospital and went through multiple surgeries to correct the damage to her body. After returning home, she faced six months of in-home nursing care, and it was in that time frame that she felt the full brunt of her accident. Physically and emotionally changed forever, Hardy-Rodriguez had to learn how to live life again.
