Prior to starting her own firm, Melissa gained extensive knowledge in real estate, business planning, and estate planning by working in the financial services industry for over 14 years. Melissa previously worked for two large financial institutions, working with high net worth clients, their families, and small to mid sized businesses to provide guidance on their banking and lending needs. Melissa’s financial services experience has provided her thorough knowledge of banking and lending and the importance it plays in real estate transactions, family estate planning, and running a small business.
