I'm Melissa and I am so glad you are here! Your home is more than an address, it's a place for creating memories, relaxing, and protecting what you are most proud of. While very rewarding, the process can be emotional and sometimes overwhelming.
I know when you're looking to buy or sell a home a lot of time & trust is with your real estate agent and I feel it's important to know a little about me, my story, and my background. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out!

This or That?
Hello! My name is Melissa English, and I am thrilled to share a little bit of my story with you.
I was born and raised in a small southern town in the beautiful state of Georgia. Growing up with a humble lifestyle I learned at a pretty young age to work for what I wanted out of life.
Since I was little, I have always known real estate was my passion! I would get the little real estate magazines out of the boxes in front of the grocery store and circle my favorite dream homes. I believe my love for the business stemmed from family roots. My grandmother, now retired, was an active Realtor for over 35 years. I remember one afternoon, (actually, it was Christmas day), and while she was cooking dinner, her home phone rang, and it was a client in town wanting to see a house. She asked me if I wanted to go show a house with her, and without any hesitation, I jumped in the car ready to see her in action.
I remember that day like it was yesterday, as I was watching her and her clients smile and laugh while they were walking through the house, I remember thinking to myself, "THIS is what I want to do"! I want to be able to make people smile and bring them joy by helping them find their homes!
After various jobs through high school, I decided to move to the North Georgia area and proceeded with getting my real estate license in 2005. In my first year, I hit the ground running, and God sure provided, I was a top producer for my brokerage and built my knowledge very quickly!
During my career, I have had the pleasure of working with hundreds of families and investors in all different stages and journeys of their lives to reach their real estate goals. Some of my clients looked to purchase their first home, and others looked to purchase their forever home. I also had a very (once-in-a-lifetime opportunity experience) of representing a mega-corporation, Freddie Mac, listing homes for them. With all of that being said, I know all of my success stories are owed to God, and also by following my mom's simple rule: "Treat people the way you expect to be treated".
Being in the business today is definitely much different than it was 18 years ago. There is so much "noise" for buyers and sellers. Knowing ALL of your options & having someone to trust is key in life & in today's real estate market. "Should I sell my home For Sale By Owner?", "What about the - we buy houses cash - signs at every red light?" "What is my home currently worth?" These are all common questions, and I will help take the guesswork out for you. I will give you honest suggestions that match what YOU need, not myself & guarantee there are never any high-pressure sales tactics.
Just as every address is unique, your need to buy or sell real estate is also unique - what is best for one of my clients may not be best for the next. I take great pride in treating each of my clients like family, no matter the size of the home or your timeline.
Today I am currently licensed in Georgia and Louisiana. I use my past investment knowledge to invest in real estate and help other investors by finding value properties that need renovations to help keep our community looking great. It is safe to say, I am very passionate about the real estate business and enjoy every aspect of it.
If you are looking to sell your home and want all of your options upfront - I promise to help you, not overwhelm you. Contact me today & let's discuss your options. I look forward to it!
