About Me

Melissa is the ultimate ‘People Person’, developing her skills during many years in sales, retail management and Veterinary Nursing. It is these people skills that has seen Melissa quickly become one of the most recommended agents in the City of Whitehorse and surrounds.

Melissa brings great passion, energy and commitment to Ray White Mitcham. “I enjoy helping buyers and sellers reach their maximum potential when moving into their next chapter of life and i absolutely thrive on hard work”.

Melissa has spent most of her life in the Mitcham area and has seen many changes in that time. It was the changing demographic of local residents that prompted Melissa to team up with experienced Chinese speaking agent Kim Seng Fang. ‘With over half of property purchasers in Whitehorse being of Chinese background, it is imperative that any sales team be able to speak the language’.

Their partnership works perfectly - Kim deals with Chinese speaking buyers and Melissa with everyone else. This synergy has resulted in a 98% campaign success rate in 2016.

Away from the office, Melissa loves playing sport, going to dog training or the park, spending time with friends, going to the gym, movies and AFL.
