"Melissa has been incredibly responsive, thoughtful, and invested in looking for the right place for my husband and I. We are expecting a baby in a month or so, and Melissa made it her priority to look for a baby friendly de- leaded apartment that would suit all of our needs. She is knowledgeable, warm, and thoughtful about the way she conducts business!" - Kristen

"Melissa was really great with helping me find my first apartment in JP. She knows a lot about the area and even drove me around to get a feel for it before deciding it would be somewhere I could imagine myself. I would recommend he"

"Melissa was fantastic! After having a fact finding phone conversation, she obviously knew exactly what my rental needs were. When I arrived in Boston to look, she was well prepared and focused on her quest to locate the perfect home for me. She was a delight and easy to work with which made the process fun. She nailed it!!"

"I cannot recommend Melissa highly enough! My husband and I worked with Melissa when purchasing our first condo in Jamaica Plain. We both had a lot of questions throughout the process, and Melissa was an incredible source of information. As a first time buyer, I was not fully aware of how much I would come to lean on Melissa as our teacher, advocate, counselor, and chief negotiator throughout the process. She fulfilled each role tremendously. Her knowledge of the Jamaica Plain area and experience in working with other realtors ensured that we had as smooth a transaction as possible. We love our home, and are so incredibly grateful to Melissa for her guidance throughout the entire process!"

"We were first time home buyers and were very anxious about taking such a major step. Melissa brought us in to go over the process thoroughly, answered all of our questions no matter how silly, and completely put us at ease. Because Boston is such a competitive market, a house goes on the market on a Friday, there's one or two open houses over the weekend and it's off the market by Monday. For that reason, you need a realtor who is going to respond immediately and push the paper work through, and Melissa was on top of it 100% of the time (even when she was away for her own wedding, she would respond via text, email and call). We ended up with the perfect home, and it is almost entirely thanks to her help and recommendations for what to offer. Throughout the process, she also had connections to everyone we needed, from loan officers to home inspectors. I would absolutely recommend her to a friend!"


About Melissa

In 2015, after years of working in marketing at technology companies and in program management for non-profits, Melissa began her career in real estate. Because of her professional background as well as her personal connection to real estate — her family has continuously owned and operated a real estate business in the Hamptons, New York since the 1960’s — she is uniquely qualified to guide everyone, from first-time buyers to more seasoned families and individuals, through the home buying process, and to assist sellers in presenting their homes for sale. Melissa takes a highly consultative approach to working with clients, acting as a teacher, advocate, counselor and chief negotiator. Her goal is to make each transaction as enjoyable and stress-free as possible. When not working Melissa enjoys spending time outdoors and being active, especially skiing, swimming and spending time with her husband Eric, their daughter Hayden and their two Australian Shepherds, Tuckerman and Corbet.
