She is well connected in the real estate community. She has worked for real estate companies such as Jon Douglas, Fred Sands, Pritchett Rapf and Associates before creating her own business MB Real Estate and Design.
Realizing that the market was changing something had to be offered to her clients that none of the local companies seem to have so Melanie decided a move to Sotheby’s International Realty in 2015. Having been a theater arts graduate from UCSB and also having spent 3 semesters studying art history, Sotheby’s International Realty SIR, which was originally formed in 1976 appeared the perfect global company to be associated with. Sotheby’s auction house already was well know internationally. Additionally, being born in Europe and speaking Spanish, English, German fluently seem to make it the perfect fit. After the interview she realized that the global outreach SIR provides to their clients was not duplicated by any of the other Real Estate firms in the Malibu.
