Melanie's love of the Cape Fear area began 25 years ago when she decided to move from Maryland to North Carolina and become a UNCW student. That's where she met her husband Shawn, a Wilmington native. After graduating they got married and decided to make Wilmington home forever.
Melanie spent over a decade in the pharmaceutical industry, building long-term relationships with local business and professionals in Wilmington and surrounding counties.Then,12 years ago, Melanie and Shawn realized their life-long dream of starting and owning their own local bike shop. Bike Cycles, located in Mayfaire Shopping Centre, has earned several small business awards including "Top 10 Best bike shops in North Carolina".
She and her husband are also very active in the community working with and participating in many local events such as the Beach to Battleship triathlon, Masonboro.org and other area athletic and charity events.
Now Melanie is pursuing her passion in real estate, utilizing strong community relationships, first hand knowledge of the area, and the most powerful marketing tools and technological innovations available. All of this allows her to offer her clients a unique perspective of all that Wilmington and the surrounding area have to offer.
When she is not working with clients Melanie can usually be found on a boat headed to Masonboro with her 2 kids, biking around the beach for some exercise, or at the barn riding horses with her daughter.
Melanie and her family truly enjoy all that this area has to offer and consider this the best place on earth to live.
If you are a Seller...
If you are a Buyer...
Melanie was hands down awesome. What was supposed to be the simplest purchase in history turned into a wild ride start to finish (no fault of ours or hers). She was tenacious, a great communicator, diligent and kept her sense of humour. She protected us as the buyer throughout and was super responsive to our questions. Even questions that cropped up late night after I had a glass of wine. She never got frustrated and of she did we never saw it. Melanie was game for anything that was thrown at her and never once made us feel like our concerns were a burden or annoying. This was the first time we had met but we will definitely be using her services again in the future.
