• Interview with Melissa •
Melissa, why Charlottesville?
I grew up in nearby Orange County and Charlottesville has always been my
go-to place to visit. It has just enough big city feel, but also offers the beautiful
countryside with mountain views!
Favorite place to eat?
Anywhere that I do not have to cook! But if I were to pick out a few, I would
refer to Chick fila, Riverside, Bodo’s and Texas Road House.
A few of my favorite events have been witnessing the births of my
grandchildren, going to New York and watching Virginia Cavalier’s Basketball
win the ACC Championship, and seeing Elton John, Rod Stewart, Billy Joel
and Pink in concert at JPJ.
Favorite Time of year?
I love Spring, Summer and Fall. Anytime its warm. I love the colors and the
ability to do activities outside.
I’ve only been to a few but I would have to say Barboursville Vineyards. I
really liked the choices and the views were breathtaking.
I have had several opportunities in my life to figure out what I wanted to be
when I grow up! My most honored accomplishment would be as a mom and
Some of my work accomplishments are working in Insurance for many years
earning along the way my Insurance licenses in Property & Casualty, Life,
Health and Annuities, working in the Circuit Court system and being a Realtor!
Why Real Estate?
My dad was a contractor so growing up with that helped me with the
knowledge of what goes into a home. Also, its such a rewarding feeling
helping someone find that right fit with a place they want to call home!
For the most part our go-to place to vacation is Myrtle Beach with our friends
and family. I did, however have the opportunity to go on a Cruise a year ago
to the Bahamas and would definitely do that again!
Favorite Tech tool?
Anything that can simplify my life! I would have to say my IPhone, The Waze
App and my Crock Pot!
Favorite Place to Shop?
Khols, Goodwill and any place I can get a good bargain.
Advice for buyers?
Make sure you have an Agent to look out for your best interest, they are free
to you. Pick a “house” you want to come “home” to everyday!
