About White House Group
With a combined 45 years in the Dallas residential real estate industry, Melissa & Brenda are passionate about finding the perfect home for each of their clients. Whether representing the buyer or seller, they take their clients’ properties, thoughts and needs personally, and offer a hands-on approach to each transaction. With a design-eye, they are able to see potential when others may not, as well as offer staging services for their listings. Melissa & Brenda pride themselves on providing first class service to each of their clients, regardless of price point, be it a first-time home buyer or multi-million estate.
Born and raised in Dallas, Melissa has a true appreciation for the city’s diverse neighborhoods and growing cultural scene. Her approachable and personable demeanor make it easy for clients to be around her and trust her. She is a quick study, listens well and obtains a good sense of her clients’ needs from the get-go, and prides herself on matching clients with the right neighborhood and the right home. Always in tune with the local market, Melissa is vigilant to get her clients in the door first, which has resulted in many successful off-market sales.
A graduate from Vanderbilt University, Melissa worked in marketing and events, where she coordinated international programs for pharmaceutical companies and honed her meticulous attention to detail. She joined her mother, Brenda, in 2010 and formed the White House Group. Since then, they have consistently been top producers and have been named to D Best numerous times.
Melissa and Brenda specialize in Park Cities, East Dallas, Preston Hollow, and Devonshire among others.
