Our Agents

Jan Boyce

My recent move from a large, national real estate firm to Deland Real Estate will provide me with more time for personal service and a customized approach with each of my clients to build and execute an effective strategy to meet and exceed their goals in the buying or selling process.  With over 35+ years of experience and over $300 million in sales, I am dedicated to helping all of my clients have a positive real estate experience.

I have seen both up and down markets and many changes in the real estate industry!  Many years ago, I began my career in a small office that had strong community commitment and a very personal approach.  I was hooked for life and went on to complete my MBA at Boston College.  Upon graduation, I accepted a position in leasing and property management with a large commercial development company specializing in new office building, retail, and warehouse construction.  After several years, I found that I missed working in the residential sector and returned to residential sales with Coldwell Banker.  The building boom of the early 2000’s was just starting and I was excited to have the opportunity to work on several residential development projects as an on-site sales agent in Boston and Brookline.  Once the projects were completed, I returned to residential sales winning many top sales awards and helping investors, relocation clients, first-time homebuyers, upsizers, and downsizers buy, rent or sell in the Boston area.  Each transaction and every client has been its own unique journey and I have enjoyed helping and meeting so many wonderful people!

Jessica and Dominic

Melissa was an amazing realtor for our family. She was honest, caring, and patient. Our house search started as the pandemic began, which meant Melissa spent extra time setting up individual showings for nearly every home we saw. With any other realtor, we likely would have given up during the 6-month house search. However, Melissa was our biggest supporter throughout the entire process. She worked tirelessly to ensure that we not only found the perfect home, but a home that we were comfortable with both functionally and financially. Melissa always made us feel like we were her number one priority, and we are so thankful that we had her as our realtor.

Working with Melissa was a great experience for me. She was patient, never pushy, and was on top of getting all the information I needed. She set up all appointments and meetings so everything just went as smooth as can be. She also was very knowledgeable when it came to all my questions. Besides her experience, she is a very friendly and honest person who made me comfortable and confident in my purchase. I am beyond happy with everything and I would highly recommend her to everyone I know.

My wife and I were long time renters and were nervous to enter the housing market. We were very excited, but knew we had no clue what we were doing. Thankfully, we were connected with Melissa who provided us guidance and mentoring through the entire process. Melissa was very knowledgeable, supportive, and responsive during our search. Sometimes we would see a house we liked and requested a viewing for the following day and within the hour we had a confirmation of our appointment, which was very helpful in a very competitive market. She also went above and beyond for us. Our search ended up spilling over to another state (where we eventually bought) and Melissa went out of her way to bring in other resources including herself to make sure we had everything covered. We enjoyed every minute of the process with Melissa and we are now happily enjoying our new home.

We purchased a house through Melissa at Deland Real Estate and strongly recommend her services. Throughout the process, Melissa was quick to respond and very knowledgeable regarding our frequent questions. We felt fortunate having Melissa represent our needs and goals during the back and forth negotiations which were complicated, due to the start of the pandemic. We were impressed with her dedication and attention and are grateful to have found our house. Thank you Melissa!

I have had the pleasure of working with Melissa on both the purchase and, years later, sale of my single family home home in Dorchester. Melissa is detail-oriented, exceptionally knowledgeable and focused on securing the best outcome for her clients. She goes above and beyond to make the experience as efficient and seamless as possible. I recommend her beyond a doubt and couldn’t be more happy to have her guidance and knowledge throughout the real estate process.

Deland Real Estate was a pleasure to work with from the inception of deciding to sell our home until the final day of the sale. Melissa Deland, with her partner, Jan Boyce, offered us their incredibly good advice throughout this process. Communicating with us in timely emails, texts, and phone calls kept us well informed on a daily basis as to how the sale was progressing. We have sold many houses over the past 50 years. This experience with Deland Real Estate was the best one we have ever had. I will happily recommend this team to all of my friends and family.
