Despite a prediction years ago from a friend that Melissa would be in real estate, the career option hadn’t come to mind. She began her business career managing two local (non-real estate) companies. One was the family business, Northern Glass Company, and the other was Ipswich Mini Storage. Fifteen years later, after the family business was sold, real estate was waiting for the Ipswich native who still lives in town with her husband and son!

A business acquaintance, who also was a successful realtor with J Barrett, recruited her. “My introduction to real estate involved handling the innumerable details that are essential to every real estate transaction from preparing for open houses to covering final readings and smoke inspections,” she says. “From there I graduated to working directly with clients as they bought and sold property. I enjoyed the process and thought that this could be a new path for me.”

“Helping clients find their dream home or sell a treasured family residence so they can move onto the next chapter of their life is immensely satisfying,” she says. “Of course, having the opportunity to share my love for my home town and surrounding communities is a bonus.”

Four years later, Melissa is still delighted that the long-ago prediction is now reality.
