About

Melanie’s story… 

After college and years of odd jobs and waiting tables, in 2009 I dove into the real estate world by renting apartments in the city. It wasn’t long before I realized my true passion and began selling homes, and in 2018 I’ve grown a business selling over 50 homes a year and have closed over $120 million in career sales. I’ve always prided myself on being efficient and effective, while making it as seamless as possible for the client… through masterful marketing, transparent communication, strong negotiating skills and always being truly up to date on the market. But mostly, by being genuine, hard-working and tenacious in helping my clients achieve their goals.

Beyond the business, I live in Newton and am active both in the local and real estate community. I’m a secret yogi, die-hard Celtics fan and big restaurant aficionado, and recently have taken up the golf range as a favorite spring afternoon pit stop between showings. I support many charities, but my favorites are Project Smile and the Newton Food Pantry

Ultimately, I love real estate because of the relationships — the opportunity to get to know and help people through what is often a huge life transition for them… buying or selling a home is a big deal! It can be so full of stress and uncertainty, but with the right team by your side it can be an easier, more enjoyable experience. 

What I believe to be the strongest testament to the high level of service I provide is that so much of my business comes from referrals and returning clients – so please also be sure to read exactly what my clients have to say here.

Please contact me anytime, and let me know how I can help YOU achieve your real estate goals!
