Melissa Deland

Melissa Deland

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.

We interviewed three real estate agents to assist us with the sale of our Brookline condo and Melissa easily stood out from the other two “big name company” agents. Melissa made us feel very comfortable with her straightforward manner and professionalism. Throughout the process, Melissa was responsive to any questions we had and paid attention to the bureaucratic detail of a real estate transaction. She also provided an excellent photographer who nicely showed off our condo. Melissa was able to bring a qualified buyer to the deal as it was a concern of ours that only individuals with proper financial backing could make the purchase due to high investor ownership in our building. All went very smoothly and we sold our condo to the first buyer who looked at it for a price we were very happy with in about 48 hours.

As first time homebuyers in a seller's market, we were intimidated to say the least. From the very first meeting, Melissa made us feel excited and at ease. She was responsive and proactive through the entire process - from the initial search until the day we closed. She was incredible to work with and helped us stay positive and grounded through the ups and inevitable downs of the home buying journey. We found the perfect home and we could not be happier! Choosing Melissa as our broker was the best decision we made, and we cannot recommend her enough.

Melissa came to us by recommendation and we couldn’t have asked for a better working partner. From first phone call to final “congrats,” she was professional, kind, super-responsive, and, best of all, an expert in the business. If you think you’re going to be buying or selling a home soon, she’s the one you want to be working with.

When we abruptly found a home we loved, I needed to sell my condo FAST. Melissa’s trademark phrase is “I love a challenge,” and I can see why – she absolutely crushes it under pressure. It was my first time selling a piece of property, and Melissa made it a seamless process. She understands and balances the financial and emotional aspects of selling a home, and made me feel informed and empowered throughout the process. Melissa is a rock star.

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.
