Being a realtor isn't about selling houses. It's about helping people navigate the complicated and often unpredictable process of buying or selling a home, piece of land, or investment property. When it's your home you're selling or buying it adds an emotional component as well.

A good realtor manages it from your first meeting through the closing by knowing how to avoid the common pitfalls, to recover from the unexpected ones, and to make it all easier on you. That's my mission.

I represent every client proactively with current local market expertise, a solid understanding of construction principles, and a fierce commitment to ethical and attentive customer service.

In addition, it means advising people on how to make the most of their current properties when they're on the market - and even when they're not, because improving your home's market value is always a priority.

I'm always glad to share my insights and experiences to help you determine which improvements will increase your property value, and which ones won't.

And hopefully when you or someone you know considers buying or selling a home, investment or vacation property, or parcel of land, you'll think of me. First.

I'd love to be your realtor. Thanks for visiting. Please share your feedback!

Warm regards,


Melissa C. Cartier
