About Melanie
Melanie now has over 17 years of experience in Residential Real Estate sales in Boston and a cumulative of 25 years of experience in Sales. Melanie is ready to help you with making the best decisions when it comes to buying and selling some of your most valuable assets.

Starting as an entrepreneur, she supported herself through business school with an eBay store selling vintage mid-century modern items to buyers all over the world. She’d travel through her home province, Quebec, on the hunt for old fabric stores where she’d buy the remainder of their vintage modern stocks.

For as long as she can remember, she has been drawn to Real Estate. Once she graduated from HEC Montréal with a Degree in Business, she moved to Boston where she followed her calling to a career in Real Estate. During her career, she has also bought and renovated over a dozen properties. Her last project was in the Berkshires, where she completed an extensive renovation of a property that had been vacant for years. Construction is a core passion for Melanie where architecture, interiors, exteriors, landscape, and decorative arts all meet to create comfortable living spaces.

When she is not coordinating Real Estate transactions, Melanie loves cooking and entertaining. She also enjoys finding mid-century modern art collectibles and spending time with her two adorable children. Born and raised in Quebec she relishes winter sports and the outdoors.

Melanie has coordinated over 350 Real Estate Transaction sides since 2003. She is an efficient, experienced, knowledgeable, strong negotiator and is attentive to her client’s needs. Melanie is ready to help you with making the best decisions when it comes to buying and selling some of your most valuable assets. Over the years, she has built a strong base of clients who are families, empty nesters, investors, and first time home buyers. Staging properties and preparing properties to sell is her art. The transformation is part of her passion as well as helping the buyer envision themselves in a property.

If you’re looking to buy or sell property in the Boston, Back Bay, South End, Beacon Hill, North End, Somerville, Arlington, Brookline, Cambridge, or Watertown areas, don’t hesitate to contact Melanie and start the conversation!
