Amanda Van Slyke loves the thrill of the hunt, motivated to discover the untapped potential in a property, and approaching the business of real estate from a holistic, investment-minded focus, considering all nuances and influences. Maybe it looks like an ordinary single-family home or empty lot, but to Amanda, who has been recognized as a “Who’s Who” in luxury real estate, it looks like an opportunity to assess its highest and best use. Similarly, the people involved are far more than clients. Comprehensive and honest are two key descriptors of Amanda’s style. She has a reliable network of builders, architects, rental agents, and everyone else who may be involved at any point from the beginning to end of a real estate transaction.
Amanda works very closely with her individual clients, providing them with ready access to her time and expertise, as well as leveraging the benefit of a trusted partner in real estate, Mark Mellman, who shares Amanda’s curiosity and commitment to the process. Additionally, she has extensive knowledge of the real estate market in the St. Petersburg/Tampa area, including in the context of commercial real estate, and actively supports clients in Naples as well as in and around St. Pete/Tampa. Amanda has earned many 5-star reviews from clients who praise her skills and dedication. Adept at navigating unique markets such as in Southwest Florida, Amanda is the partner and advocate you need on your side.
Mark Mellman views the business of real estate a little differently than most, to the distinct benefit of his clients. Rather than work towards a one-time transaction only, Mark takes a consultative approach, seeking to establish long-term relationships that transcend the immediate goals of a particular deal, laying the groundwork for future partnership and success. Mark has a real passion for people, and believes fundamentally in the timeless dream of homeownership, with all the excitement and anxiety that can come along for the ride. Mark doesn’t work exclusively with any one group of clients, supporting those in the market for a primary, part-time, or investment property. Regardless of the specifics of your search, Mark will use every skill and tool he has to ensure a happy outcome, minimizing stress along the way.
A native of New York City, Mark and his wife Gloria moved to Naples 25 years ago, and he is as passionate about his Southwest Florida home today as ever. Whereas a quarter-century ago Naples was as sleepy and seasonal as it gets, today the city boasts a thriving arts and culture scene, world-class restaurants and amenities, and year-round desirability. Along with their 4 children, Mark and Gloria enjoy going to the theatre and sporting events, and love to travel as a family, aiming to see one new destination each year.
As a Realtor, and member of the Naples Area Board of Realtors, Mark believes Compass to be the most innovative and dynamic firm in the industry. To his clients, Mark promises integrity, a supported experience, and long-lasting commitment.
