Melissa became a Realtor in 2017, after 12 years of working in the legal field as a paralegal. Her instructor in her real estate training course was none other than one of MKA Realty’s top agents, Jon Colley of The Colley Team. He saw her drive and potential to succeed in Real Estate sales and encouraged her to join McBride Kelly & Associates Realty; which she did and loves the close nit family atmosphere and boutique feel of the brokerage over a large impersonal national company because of the quality relationships that can be formed!  She was able to close two properties within her first 45 days as an agent at MKA and has kept the momentum going strong due to her love and passion for her job as a Realtor.

Melissa was drawn to her dream career as a Realtor because of her interest in architecture, home interior design and renovations of investment properties. As a Realtor, Melissa works with many investors, guiding them through the entire process from acquiring properties, suggestions as to the renovations that will gain the most return on their investment and listing the properties to sell or rent after completion. Melissa’s interest in interior design has led her to assisting her seller clients receive maximum profits on the sale of their homes by offering them her staging guidance and services.

Melissa has called the Tampa Bay area home since she was a young child but spent her summers growing up in Chicago where she was born. Her love for the big city feel of Chicago truly makes her appreciate the growth Tampa Bay is seeing and she is excited to assist her clients in making their stamp in such a hot real estate market and city! As a longtime resident of the Valrico, Lithia, Brandon and Riverview areas, Melissa knows the market and neighborhoods well and can guide you through the process of whether relocating locally or even from out of state! Whether you’re looking to buy, sell or invest in the city of Tampa, the small hometown/country feel of Eastern Hillsborough County, or even by the beautiful beaches of Pinellas County, Melissa is the agent for you! She believes Tampa Bay and its surrounding towns/suburbs is truly the best place to live, work and call HOME and she knows you will too!

Aside from being a Realtor, as a mom of four children ranging in age from 23 to 5 years old and a 2 year old granddaughter, Melissa enjoys spending time with her fiancé, family and friends enjoying the Florida sunshine at her professed “happy place”, the beach!
