Born and bred in Thames, Melissa spent a lot of time in Pauanui growing up, especially once the family bach was purchased in the 90’s and well used over the years. Melissa moved here permanently in 2015 after her four-year stint living outside of the Coromandel when she realised that this is the paradise she wanted to settle down in with her partner, a local builder.
Melissa lived in the Netherlands while studying ‘Economics and Marketing for International Events, Music and Entertainment’ in Tilburg.
She also studied a Bachelor of Creative Technologies at Auckland University of Technology and spent a lot of time in the Auckland theatre scene. She co-founded a non-profit organisation, ‘Speak-Out’, which was implemented into Secondary Schools across the country to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health. Melissa is relatively new to the Real Estate industry but has a love for the area and has been using her experience in marketing to aid the Richardsons team since early 2017.
What the Clients are Saying
"Excellent service from Amber and Melissa. They both made the process easy and transparent and Melissa really went the extra mile before settlement arranging for things to be removed from the property (which wasn't her responsibility) and quickly responding to messages after hours. Awesome work guys!"
