“I am a full-time, full-service Realtor. How can I serve you? I am committed to help you to successfully define and accomplish your real estate goals, embrace your lifestyle, and to make the process EASY and seamless for you.

Serving as your ‘expert’; your ‘negotiator’; your ‘problem solver’; your ‘voice of reason’; and your (tech savvy) ‘communicator’, and together, I want us to have a great experience.”

“My business is based 80% on past client referrals and repeat business.”

 

Melissa works directly and personally with her clients , and hires administrative and market assistants for those additional tasks.

‘I am not a team, and I do not over book myself,  so the quality of time and attention to the transaction details and negotiating is not compromised-  this is why I work as an Exclusive Buyer’s Agent or Exclusive Right to Sell Listing Agent.”

“My style is to communicate with you and be proactive for you throughout the entire transaction -which means less stress for you at closing.”
