"Melanie was a very patient and kind realtor. We put her through her paces and looked at MANY houses before we found the perfect home for us. She was always patient throughout the process. When it came to buying the home, she made sure we got a fair deal. When we called or texted her with concerns, she was always available. That’s saying a lot considering we were working together through Thanksgiving, Christmas, & actually closed on New Year's Eve. We really appreciate her hard work throughout the entire process."
As a resident of Midlothian/Moseley for 13 years, Melanie offers a wealth of knowledge about what the community has to offer perspective residents.
She has also worked extensively in the east side of Richmond, and has sold homes in Powhatan, Chester, and the West End as well. Melanie enjoys the area and loves the small town feel of the Southside, as you can never go anywhere without running into someone you know! This is the place she chose to raise her kids because she felt that this area has a true community of people through school, sports, and church, who have known them and supported them throughout their lives.
Her extended family has relocated to the area as well, because they recognized that it is truly a great place to live! Her family has especially enjoyed “Life on the Lake” in Woodlake, and spend a lot of time in the summer kayaking or taking out their pontoon boat on the reservoir! Melanie and her family are active members of Woodlake United Methodist Church.
One her favorite things to do is volunteer each month at Mt. Moriah, which feeds the homeless lunch every day. Her church makes and serves food there once a month, and she participates as often as she can. Her son is enrolled at Tomahawk Middle, and she is also involved in school activities, such as sports through the Woolridge Athletic Association, as well as is involved with her daughters school at Cosby High School, as her daughter is actively involved in the girls’ show choir and the Cosby Dance Team.
Five years ago, after doing staging and interior decorating, Melanie decided to follow in the footsteps of her father, who was a realtor in Fredericksburg, VA and had been encouraging her to get her license! He knew it would be a perfect fit for her, and he was right! Receiving a Bachelor’s of Science from University of Delaware, an Associates degree in Fashion Merchandising and Marketing from the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York, and an Interior Design Certificate from University of Richmond Melanie's expertise is an asset to the Rick Cox Realty Group.
Her favorite part of the business is that every day is different, and every transaction is a learning experience! She looks forward to coming to work and truly enjoys her job! When it comes to real estate, Melanie doesn't believe in handing her clients off after writing a contract. She is always available on speed dial, will always respond, and will follow through on any issues that come up until the transaction is closed, and even afterwards if that is necessary.
Melanie is not a high pressure salesperson making it her main goal is to have a happy client and successful transaction in the end, no matter how long that takes!
