My Mission Statement...

My philosophy is simple: clients come first. I pledge to be in constant communication with my clients, keeping them fully informed throughout the entire leasing process. I believe that if you’re not left with an amazing experience, I haven’t done my job. I don’t measure success through achievements or awards, but through the satisfaction of my investor clients.



More about Melissa...

I have been an agent in the Lexington-Buena Vista-Rockbridge area since 2006 and I have lived here since 1999. I am a 1990 graduate of Virginia Tech and continue to take courses to keep my teaching certification current. I enjoy playing tennis, visiting my four grown children, taking walks with my dog, and just being outside in general!

I was a teacher and a coach before starting a construction company, Phoenix Construction, with my husband. We build custom homes, complete kitchen and bath remodeling jobs large and small, and we also do historic restorations and additions to existing homes. This experience makes me a valuable asset when evaluating a home you may be interested in purchasing.

In 2018 I went to work for Howard Hanna Property Management where we are bringing a new level of property management service to the area. Whether you just need me to find you a qualified tenant, or you are interested in our full service management, I am dedicated to providing the highest quality of customer service to our tenants and owners.

I understand that buying or selling a home is more than just a transaction: it’s a life-changing experience. That’s why I am dedicated to providing exceptional, personalized service for all of my clients. I take great pride in the relationships I build and always work relentlessly on the client’s behalf to help them achieve their real estate goals.

Today’s buyers and sellers need a trusted resource that can guide them through the complex world of real estate. With my extensive knowledge and commitment to providing only the best and most timely information to my clients, I am your go-to source for real estate industry insight and advice. Whether you are looking for an investment property, a retirement home, or a place to raise your children, let me help you find the perfect home.
