How did I start as a


After graduating from Southwestern University, Melanie used her business degree in the banking industry. The best part of the banking world was visiting with clients and finding their needs and wants in the financial realm. However, after several years in banking, it was clear there was another industry calling her name.

Melanie watched her Dad create and build a real estate company. She watched him help buyers and sellers make their dreams come true while providing for his family. After having a child and wanting something different for her family, Melanie decided to throw her hat into the real estate world. 31 years later, she is still loving her field of work, and best of all, finding the perfect home for each family to call their own.

Melanie obtained her real estate license in 1989 and has been active in the Temple/Belton Board of Realtors, serving as Director, MLS chair, and Professional Standards Chair. She is Past President of the Temple/Belton Board of Realtors. Melanie is a Graduate of the Real Estate Institute (GRI), an Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR), and a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS).


Melanie has been incredibly involved in her community having received the Community Builder Award in 2015 and Salado Mayor award in 2005.  While volunteering throughout Bell County, Salado has been her primary volunteer area.  Century 21 Bill Bartlett received the Business of the Year award in 2014 and Century 21 Bill Bartlett consistently gives back to the community in time and donations.  Melanie served on the board of the Salado Education Foundation for 7 years and loved awarding scholarships to the local Salado graduates each year.

Family & Recreation

While community volunteerism is important to Melanie, supporting the real estate industry is also an important part of her life.  She has been involved in the local real estate association serving as Chair of the Association, being named Realtor of the Year in 2014, and achieving the leadership award in 2018.  She was a founding member of the annual food drive for the Realtor association for over 20 years.
