Melanie's reputation for property investigation, interior design, remodeling and staging along with her market positioning strategies, organizational skills, personal follow-up and contract negotiations have set her apart for many years. Real estate blends her talents into one well-orchestrated campaign.
A frequent speaker for Coldwell Banker on managing work flow and contract negotiations, she’s the first to tell you how dramatically the real estate profession has changed. Her use of Coldwell Banker’s leading edge marketing materials, interoffice and worldwide networking capability and technology combined with her business strategy and hands on attention to detail continues to pay off handsomely for her clients and has positioned her in the Top 1% of Coldwell Banker agents both nationally and internationally.
Melanie has also expanded her services by cultivating a very effective team of interior design, marketing, construction and business consultants that work with her to provide a wide array of resources. As a result, she enjoys an unusually high number of repeat transactions with past clients as well as referrals from their friends and associates. Together they now make up more than 90% of her business.
Having sold hundreds of millions of dollars in homes, she believes very strongly there are some critical parts of a real estate transaction that cannot be delegated. While she employs assistants to help her manage behind the scenes with the logistics of maintaining property files and data entry, this workflow organization allows her the freedom for the hands-on, personal attention her clients appreciate in today's complex real estate transactions. Her personal communication with the key players in the real estate transaction facilitates a smooth process from beginning to end.
Melanie believes that good business revolves around organization, education and effective communication. Today’s transactions are multi-faceted challenges involving detailed planning, artistic design, marketing, contracting and skillful negotiation keeping a watchful eye on legal and accounting pitfalls.
