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!

Chelsea and Maria

We have had a fantastic experience working with Melissa! She was a knowledgeable and supportive guide throughout the process of renting two homes and buying one. We had a long list of priorities and Melissa was incredibly responsive, patient, and reassuring the entire time. More than just knowing she had our best interests at heart, we truly felt like she was invested in us finding our perfect home— which we did! We absolutely would recommend her, and plan on working with her in the future.

Brenda Sweeney and the Praino Family

As we prepared to sell our family home of 65 years, Melissa Deland was recommended to us as a real estate broker. After meeting with her, it was evident that Melissa was the right realtor to assist us. She was kind, patient, understanding, professional, extremely knowledgeable, organized, and responsive to all of our questions and concerns. Melissa guided us through the process and was instrumental in finding just the right buyer to purchase our home. I highly recommend Melissa Deland as a real estate broker to assist with your sale.

Beth and Jim Gribbon

Melissa listened, found exactly what we were looking for, and helped us settle in with connections to contractors and services. As newcomers to the Boston area, we appreciated her advice and thoughtful answers to all of our questions. Melissa's efforts in advance of our arrival helped streamline our search. Aside from saving us time, we were grateful for the comfort of minimal visits during the pandemic. And, of course, we ended up with a place that is "just right" for us. Thank you, Melissa!

Dominic and Jessica

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.

Ashley and Matt McLeish

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.
