Whether it’s searching for and buying the right home or promoting and maximizing the outcome of a sale, knowing the market makes a huge difference — and Melissa Lanier is a determining factor.
She surely knows the market: Melissa’s children represent the fifth generation in Woodland, including her parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. With that history comes local market insight and familiarity with its neighborhoods, schools, and services, as well as mortgage, insurance, and inspection standards. She has cultivated community connections in all of those aspects.
With this deep-rooted connection to Woodland and Yolo County comes respect and nostalgia for the area’s history. While Melissa remembers with fondness her charming childhood growing up in Woodland, she also has a love for the modern growth and commerce that it has recently seen. She believes the small farm town of yesterday is still alive and well, just on a slightly larger scale, and she understands the draw to a town like Woodland: “It’s just the type of place you want to raise your kids.”
Melissa brings her love of community and willingness to serve to her real estate business and works with buyers and sellers from all walks of life. She helps close deals on all types of properties, from fixer-uppers to multimillion-dollar apartment buildings. With a natural tendency to nurture, she has been hailed as a caring, patient, hand-holding real estate advisor by her clients for more than 15 years. When you ask Melissa about those thoughts, she humbly admits it’s just who she is.
When away from the office, Melissa enjoys camping, reading, and spending time with her friends and family. Now that their children — Chase, Meg, and Simon — are maturing, Melissa and her husband, Deryk, look forward to vacationing and finding adventure for two.
