Melissa (Mel) graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a degree in Marketing Communications and an emphasis in Creative Sports Marketing. After completing internships at a local radio station and NFL & NBA sports agency in Chicago, Mel worked as a Ticket Representative for the Chicago Bulls. Later, she accepted a position as Stadium Experience Coordinator for the Chicago Bears where she worked for five years, and spent two years with an event services provider in Chicago. Mel is most comfortable while managing guest experiences from start to finish and paying special attention to client needs. Mel was looking for an opportunity to get more involved in the northwest suburbs where she grew up and was drawn to the fast-paced real estate industry. She enjoys getting to know clients and helping ease the process of getting their homes listed for sale, which has paired perfectly with her guest services and hospitality background.
Mel enjoys spending time with her husband James and daughter Aria, as well as her four nephews. She is a Disney enthusiast making frequent trips to Walt Disney World, and an avid movie goer.
