A fourth generation Bostonian, Melissa first made her home as an adult in Beacon Hill from 2003-2014. Committed to sharing her passion for the rich heritage and vibrant communities that Boston has to offer, she became a realtor in 2009 at Foundation Realty Group. While at FRG, Melissa built a reputation for being hard-working, reliable, trustworthy, and resourceful.
Three children later and a move to West Roxbury, Melissa realized another dream – becoming a broker and starting her own real estate company. Her priorities remain the same: working tirelessly to find the right home, at the right price, in the right community for each of her clients. For those clients selling their home, Melissa is determined to get them top dollar, while also acknowledging and sensitively managing the emotions surrounding the sales process. Melissa treats her clients as if they are her only one.
Passionate, knowledgeable, and patient, Melissa delivers personalized service and works tirelessly to ensure total client satisfaction.
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.
We have had three wonderful experiences working with Melissa (2 as buyers, 1 as sellers) during which she has been upbeat, organized, super responsive, deeply knowledgable of the Boston-area market, and, ultimately, greatly successful in meeting our needs. We have recommended her before and would unequivocally do so again!
Melissa is AMAZING! We essentially asked her to move the sun, sky and moon to find us the perfect home that we could move into within a month, and she delivered in spades. We relocated from California to Massachusetts and had the keys to our beautiful new home within two days of arriving. If you're ever looking to purchase in Massachusetts we highly recommend her. Thanks, Melissa!
I received very poor advice from a previous realtor resulting in my home not selling. Then my neighbors recommended Melissa as she had helped them both buy and sell. Working with her resulted in my home selling after only one open house. She was in constant contact with me throughout the process and answered all of my questions. She had all the knowledge and experience I needed. I would absolutely recommend her to any seller!
We had a complicated situation where we were tasked with getting our dream home and trying to sell our old home, in a very short amount of time, in a less than optimal time of the year. Melissa gave us honest assessments of our options and helped us on both sides of the transaction. As a result, we feel that we got our dream home at the lowest possible price and received the best outcome on our sale. Thanks, Melissa!
