Melissa offers a unique perspective that few others can provide as she assists clients on their journey to find the new home of their dreams. Melissa is a proud adopted daughter of the Chicagoland area as well as a homeowner herself. As a result, she has already been through the homeownership process and knows what it is like to make such an important decision (probably one of the largest financial decisions of one’s life). Thus, Melissa is well-positioned as an advisor and wants to guide you through the home buying process in an effort to ensure that you have the best experience possible while avoiding several pitfalls along the way.
Since Melissa is originally from Sunny South Florida and has been living in Chicagoland for the past 10+ years, Melissa brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to not only newcomers to the area but also to lifelong Chicagoans who are looking for a fresh start. She enjoys working with both urbanites and suburbanites and can offer insightful tips to both. Melissa’s client base consists of buyers, sellers, and investors.
Until becoming a Real Estate Broker, Melissa was a healthcare professional, specifically an inpatient pharmacist for several years. In that career, she honed her skills in team-based patient-centered care. Melissa has come to find that many of these skills are transferrable to her current career in real estate. She understands how important it is to partner with and educate individuals she is seeking to serve with a team-based client-focused approach.
Melissa is an alumna of Florida International University in Miami, Florida and the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Pharmacy, graduating from both with the highest honors. She is happily married to Matthew and currently lives in Forest Park with their fur baby Cornelia.
