Melisa is a native of Gainesville, FL where she attended the University of Florida and received a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology. After college, she lived in the Tampa Bay area with a career in Human Resources. Melisa moved to Nashville in 2013 after a weekend visit to the city. She fell in love with Nashville’s vibrant culture, trendy restaurants and friendly locals. She married her husband, Jeremy, in May of 2016 at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. They now live in Crieve Hall with their rescue Chihuahua, Emma.
When Melisa is not working with our buyer clients she loves to attend concerts, try new restaurants and go boating at Percy Priest Lake. She’s a sucker for a good Bravo binge session and she loves to karaoke (despite how bad she sings!).
Melisa is a member of the National Association of Realtors, the Tennessee Association of Realtors and the Greater Nashville Association of Realtors. She’s currently working towards her Accredited Buyer Representative designation. She is also fluent in Spanish which brings an exciting opportunity to our team and our clients. Melisa works with home-buyers that come to the Southbound Group looking to grow their roots in and around the Nashville area, with a specialization in Williamson County.
If we could give The Southbound Group TEN stars we would! Having recently relocated from Iowa, we certainly needed the perfect realty firm to help us navigate our new Tennessee home search. Our realtor, Melissa, was simply outstanding, and now feels like family – her warmth and attention to detail (and lots of patience) were like receiving a warm hug each and every time we went looking for new homes. When we had struggled with the builder who was finishing a home we purchased, Jessi and her crew stepped up to the plate and took charge, which was a true lifesaver for us! Professional and patient describe their entire firm, and we were BLESSED to work with them. I truly can’t say enough superlatives about their entire team and would recommend them to everyone and anyone who needs a first-class realty group!
What can I say about Jessi and her team? I walked into her office after reading some yelp reviews when searching for a realtor. I was scared out of my mind about purchasing my first home. By the end of the consult I felt so peaceful and excited! 3 days later Melissa took me out and found me my DREAM house within an hour! Next day Jessi got my contract accepted. I bombarded Rebecca pretty much every day after that with questions and they were all so patient and sweet!! So helpful and so fun!! Home Buying + Southbound Group = Happily Ever After.
