Melanie was born and raised here on the Vineyard -- much of that childhood spent in Katama. After earning a Business Management & Entrepreneurship degree from Quinnipiac University, she joined her family business -- one of the leading luxury home construction firms on the island -- where she's served as head of Client Relations for 10 years.
Making the segue into real estate has been a natural fit, where Melanie can draw upon her vast knowledge and experience in all aspects and phases of building.
Having lived here most of life, does she have a favorite special place? That's an easy one to answer she says, "Hands down, circumnavigating the island by boat. It's a view like none other, from the beaches of Chappy to the cliffs of Aquinas, it's one breathtaking vista after another."
Melanie is also very active in the community. She was elected to the Board of Directors of the Edgartown Board of Trade, served as its Treasurer, and has been actively involved in the Martha's Vineyard Food and Wine Festival, Christmas In Edgartown, and Pink & Green weekend.
She and her husband Nick live in Edgartown with their daughter Taylor Quinn.
