Melissa's Biography :
I was born and raised on the east side of Indianapolis, Indiana along with three siblings, and was greatly influenced by my father. He was a very creative man who inspired me to learn as much about business as I possibly could from a very early age. He also encouraged me to express myself through art, writing and inventing, and instilled within me the ability to not be afraid to step ‘outside of the box,’ and to focus my sights beyond the status quo.
As I look back upon my life’s journey thus far, my most important and rewarding experience and accomplishment in life has been the raising of my three children, Stephanie, Tyler and Paige. They were wonderful children growing up and are now young adults that I am very proud of, plus, I now have an amazing grandchild that I can both love AND spoil!
Once my children were grown, I took a good look in the mirror and decided that it was time to devote some attention to my personal growth, so I elected to go back to college and attended Indiana University/Purdue University at Indianapolis, where I studied public relations on a full-time basis. I also attended Herron School of Art & Design and the Liberal Arts school for creative writing. Being one that possesses a desire to continue to learn, I’m expanding my skills in the luxury home market, as well as attending a University to learn about trading on the stock market, as well.
Today, I’m extremely passionate about my real estate career and the people that I work with. I love to help my customers and clients achieve as well as exceed their desired goals, and I always strive to deliver to them more than they expect. I attribute that mindset to my father, as I mentioned, instilling within me the importance of exceeding the status quo. It’s the cornerstone of my business philosophy.
I’m blessed to be a part of the United Real Estate Indianapolis family, one of the most recognizable brand names.
I am a member of Toastmasters International - Zionsville Charte. I'm also a child advocate volunteer.
