Once affectionately referred to as “a velvet covered brick”, Melody has successfully negotiated and navigated the real estate process for hundreds of clients, often winning in multiple-offer situations. Not one to ever give-up easily, her wheels are always turning, staying focused on the best possible outcome. Building rapport while developing thoughtful strategies are some of her strong suits and she utilizes them to stand firm and stay strong on her clients’ behalf while not shutting doors on the other side of the transaction. Quiet tenacity and great listening and problem-solving skills ensure that Melody’s clients are well guided on their journey of buying or selling a home. She understands it can be an emotional and uncertain time with big financial decisions. She feels honored to be able to play a small role in someone’s big picture and is committed to doing her absolute best for every client.
Melody cares deeply for people (especially her clients) and enjoys helping others overcome hurdles whether personal or circumstantial. Combined with a rational approach as well as creativity, Melody is gifted at calmly and productively resolving the issue at hand. There is rarely a situation she has not encountered and problem-solving and negotiating are some of her favorite parts of the job.
The daughter of two hard-working business owners and entrepreneurs, Melody learned early on the value of integrity, problem-solving, sacrifice and putting others first in order to achieve success. She attended Gordon College in Boston where she received degrees in Communications (Media Studies) and English Literature. She likes to say she “learned how to talk and read good”!
Melody was born in Texas, raised in New Jersey, started her professional career in Boston, and eventually followed her heart (and the man who stole it) to Colorado in 2010 where she came under the wing of a successful real estate agent who helped her quickly become a top producing agent on his team. She has since helped friends and families with over 500 home sales (buyers, sellers and investors) and over 80% of her business comes from repeat clients and referrals. She was especially honored to be a speaker at a real estate conference of 15,000 agents, a 5280 Magazine Rising Star in 2014 and currently a Dave Ramsey Endorsed Local Provider.
When not making her clients real estate dreams come true, Melody loves spending time with her husband and young son. She wants to be wherever they are, whether the neighborhood park or their favorite destination, Costa Rica where they hope to have a home someday. She also enjoys skiing, decorating, yoga, macramé and visiting her family back in New Jersey as much as possible.
Words Melody lives by: You are the sky. Everything else...is just the weather.
