After vacationing in the area for years, Mel and her husband Carl moved from Michigan to the mountains of NC. They had met Joey and Sonya Reid when they were preparing to move down, and Sonya helped Mel and Carl find their first NC home at the end of 2017. Mel recognized the unique approach of the Reids’ and enjoyed the entire buying experience so much that she quickly accepted the Reids’ invitation to join their team and serve as an agent assistant for their listings.
Mel and Carl have one married daughter and three grandchildren in northern Indian who, after their first visit to the mountains for Spring Break in 2018, better understand why Grandpa and Grandma made the move.
Mel graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Restaurant, Hotel, and Institutional Management and worked in the industry at various types of restaurants until 1996. She transitioned to facility and project management for a large church in northern Indiana for 21 years until moving to NC. Mel finds it refreshing and challenging to be working in the real estate industry and learning something new each day. She sees God’s hand in this opportunity and is thankful to be part of such a wonderful team.
