It is all about the client for Melissa. Since becoming a real estate agent more than 30 years ago, she understands that being honest and candid leads to a successful relationship. Melissa is well known for her hands-on approach in every deal. She has also built strong relationships with fellow agents which has expanded her base and reputation along the Main Line.
“I enjoy working with clients, discovering their wants and needs, devising innovative solutions tailored to each customer, to finding the perfect property, to the settlement, to the housewarming,” says Melissa.
Before becoming an agent, Melissa worked for Estee Lauder Companies in North Jersey as a sales manager. She has a degree in Psychology from Drexel University and has an interest in local history. She is a member of the Radnor, Delaware County and Chester County Historical Societies.
“Main Line Lifestyle began with the Pennsylvania Railroad building the ‘Main Line’ from Philadelphia to Lancaster with the first stop in Ardmore,” explains Melissa. “But the area’s greatest assets have always been the people - captains of industry, doctors, lawyers, business people, teachers, architects, bankers, tradesmen - with all the skills and resources necessary to maintain and encompass a special style of life that we enjoy on the Main Line.”
Melissa has lived on the Main Line for the past 30 years and her three children all graduated from Radnor Schools. Her son, Alex, is working with her on Your Main Line Living team as well!
