Melissa holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing from Valdosta State University.
Before coming to Hodnett Cooper, Melissa and her husband began a construction company in 2005, Johnson Partners Inc. With his background in Civil Engineering and her background in Marketing, they focused on high end residential and commercial building. When the real estate market struggled, they geared their company toward their industrial building roots. Going back to residential building, the team changed the company name to REH Building Solutions. Melissa felt this would be a perfect time to transition to her career in real estate. Melissa started with Hodnett Cooper Real Estate as an office administrator while completing real estate courses at night.
Melissa truly enjoys working with people and is eager to build a strong client base through honesty and knowledge. A knowledge that comes from 10 years in the construction industry. Melissa’s goal is to help others find true happiness in their residence. The process of buying or selling a home should be as stress free as possible and she will diligently work to make sure her clients receive a pleasant experience.
Melissa enjoys hanging out with her husband Jamie and their 3 children. They love riding bikes, swimming, playing with their two golden retrievers, Hollywood & Rigger, and traveling. Melissa feels truly blessed to be able to call St. Simons Island her hometown and loves that there are so many outdoor adventures available to experience.
