“Since I know firsthand how hard it is to relocate out of state, (my husband was transferred once when I was 8 months pregnant!) I work well with relocation clients. There are many factors that are involved with long distance moves. Everything from children not wanting to leave their friends, to mom or dad maybe having to find a new job. I have personally been through the relocation process a few times and I am very sympathetic to the needs of clients as well as their families. It is one of the most stressful times in anyone's life and I found that a little humor sometimes can go a long way”.
Melissa now resides in SW County, where she knows the "Roanoke Homes Market", with her husband Brett, son Connor and her favorite Chocolate Labrador, Lucy. With a straight forward honest approach to buying or selling real estate as well as a strong financial background, she gives buyers and sellers an added advantage needed in today's real estate market, always delivering more than expected.
