About Melody

I am a FULL-TIME Realtor that has also been an active real estate property appraiser for many years in the Pinellas County area. I am a top performing Realtor, ranking in the top 1% of Realtors at Charles Rutenburg Realty, and in the top 4% of ALL Pinellas County Realtors. Having completed thousands of real estate appraisals over the years gives me a tremendous advantage over other agents in our area. This is extremely valuable whether you are buying or selling a home!

In addition to my real estate and property appraising expertise, I have a solid business and financial background. I received my B.S. degree in Business, Finance, and Marketing from Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Florida. I then went on to earn my Masters in Business Administration degree (M.B.A.) from The Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne, Florida.

I believe my solid educational background, strong work ethic, in-depth knowledge of the area, and the skills acquired while appraising properties allows me to offer my clients distinct advantages and unmatched attention to details and customer service when listing their homes for sale or representing them while buying a home in today's challenging real estate market!
