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.
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.
