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!
Fantastic experience with Deland Real Estate. She took the time to really understand my selling and buying needs. I won’t use anyone else.
Melissa is an incredible broker. She took time to really understand what we wanted and was extremely patient as we shifted our idea of where we wanted to be several times. We were out of town when we found a house we loved so she offered to drive to the Cape on Friday of July 4th weekend to view it for us - that is truly above and beyond! We made an offer and it was accepted thanks to Melissa's strategic thinking and the time she took to form a good working relationship with the seller's broker. Melissa made the entire process easy and was a delight to work with.
As a first time homebuyer, Melissa’s assistance was invaluable. She walked me through everything I needed to know about the process, put me in touch with great resources, and answered all of my questions along the way. Her unfailing support and enthusiasm helped me find the home that was meant for me.
When faced with the task of emptying and selling a family home, I was overwhelmed. I didn't think I could talk to a real estate agent until the clean out was done. I was wrong. Not only did Melissa know exactly whom to call for junk removal and the best moving company, but she helped come up with a schedule and was there every step of the way to keep everything on track. She gets things done, and, even better, she demystifies the process. Additionally, her kindness, reassurance, and patience during the monumental task of selling a family home was invaluable. She really went above and beyond, and was a fantastic partner throughout. I can't recommend her highly enough.
“Melissa is the best! She came recommended to us by friends and we are so thankful that we were able to work with her. Melissa helped us find the perfect home off market and exceeded our expectations with selling our home, too. During a tough market and uncertainty of Covid, Melissa was a rock that we could trust and count on. She is genuine, caring, and incredibly knowledgeable. I can’t recommend Melissa highly enough and will be forever grateful to her.”
"I highly recommend Melissa! She is the house whisperer: finding our house off market and helping us navigate a tough sellers' market. Melissa made buying and selling a breeze. She truly is outstanding in her professionalism and experience. Melissa is kind, calm, and collected at all the right moments. She is a genuine person who clearly enjoys helping families find a home. Talk to Melissa and you won’t be disappointed!"
