Melissa is dedicated to helping home buyers find their dream home and helping sellers achieve their real estate goals. She is passionate about providing impeccable service to her clients and assisting them during the entire process from contract to closing and beyond.

Melissa graduated from NC State University with a bachelor's degree in Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Management. She has spent the majority of her career honing her skills in sales, marketing, and management in the country club and restaurant businesses. This background has provided her with strong skills in managing a business and marketing, which she uses every day as a Real Estate Agent focused on assisting her clients. Most importantly, she gained invaluable experience in the importance of customer service, which is her #1 priority.

She moved to Raleigh with her family during her junior year of high school. Coming from New Hampshire, she immediately fell in love with North Carolina and it's great weather. She has now lived in the Lake Norman area for more than 14 years after relocating here in 2005. Personally, Melissa enjoys volunteering her time by serving as Treasurer of the Bailey Middle School Band Boosters, Vice President of the Hough High School Band Boosters, and as a member of the School Leadership Team at Hough High School. She also enjoys spending time with her children and friends, biking, reading, and enjoying the lake.

Melissa has a passion for helping families find their perfect home and believes in taking the time to listen to your needs to best help you. She looks forward to working with you to make your real estate dreams come true!
