Melissa has been destined to be a Realtor from a young age.. she would go to open houses on Sundays from the age of 7 with her Mom, just for fun, and loved the story each home told and the unique traits each offered, as well as a vision for potential for the ones that needed a little work. She went on to purchase her first investment home at 25 years old and decided through the purchasing process that Real Estate was her passion. Melissa can relate to many first time home buyers and help them with the entire process. Her roots stem from Wilton CT, so being a Fairfield County native she is very familiar with all of the communities and amenities it has to offer. Travelling is very special to her and she has been to over 15 countries and loves to experience different cultures, foods, people, and languages - she is fluent in 4 languages: Portuguese, French, Spanish and English. She grew up as first generation in the US and found that language came naturally to her as well as the ability to work and relate to people of all different backgrounds and cultures. Melissa is a graduate from the University of Rhode Island and her bubbly, adventurous and very social demeanor makes her a wonderful communicator and detail oriented Realtor. We are fortunate and very excited to have her part of the Vanderblue Team!
