About Me

When I first obtained my real estate license in 2003, the goal was simple and it remains the same today: To be knowledgeable about the real estate business, be ethical and honest, and provide professional, personalized service. As a lifelong Maryland resident, University of Maryland graduate, I know the area well. My previous career of 20+ years in medical equipment sales with companies such as Amsco/ Steris and Johnson & Johnson, developed my business skill set that has helped me achieve success as a multi-million dollar producer in real estate.

 

In my second career in real estate, I primarily service sellers & buyers in Central Maryland: Frederick, Howard, Carroll & Montgomery Counties. The real estate landscape is ever changing and I understood the importance early of gaining knowledge and experience with various types of residential real estate transactions.

 

2006: Associate Brokers License *  2010: Relocation Certified * 2011: Corporate and bank owned specialist

 

I currently reside in city of Frederick with husband, Gary.  Now that my youngest son is off to college, I have more time to enjoy hiking, travel and enjoy the sights & sounds of Frederick.

“I had a large home and the thought of downsizing by myself was overwhelming. I was still recovering from my husband's passing. Margaret's kind,gentle ways were such a comfort and we took things at my pace. With her encouragement and guidance, I made tremendous strides with downsizing and making my beloved home picture perfect. In the meantime I needed to find another smaller home in a senior community. We found a lovely home and Margaret watched it daily to see when it was coming on the market. It went on sooner then expected and with her constant vigilance she was able to secure a firm contract and within 5 hours, I had my beautiful little new home. In the meantime my old home always was fore front for her. We knew it would sell and finally found the perfect buyers. Everything went so smoothly in the final closure. I have never been more pleased and also realized what a wonderful agent I had. She is number one and I would definitely recommend her to anyone. Her honesty, knowledge, reliability and professionalism is excellent. Thank you Margaret!!! ”

“This is our 2nd time working with Margaret and as we went through the process , it reminded me why I decided to use her as pour agent again- Margaret is very knowledgeable and experienced. She helped guide us through a home purchase and sale in about 2 months. Her advice and guidance helped me to make many decisions and looking back, I feel like 99% of them were the right decisions. There are a lot of moving parts and variables during 2 real estate transactions and I don't have the knowledge to understand the detailed process. That's what Margaret was there for. Her patience in answering all of my questions and concerns was awesome. I know asked some questions more than once but she responded to my needs patiently every time. Margaret was available when needed and always responded and executed as needed same day. This is important to me as I expect quick responses with such an important matter. I called on Margaret many times and she was always there to help me and answer my questions. I learned so much from Margaret and I don't think either transaction could have gone any better. We ended up paying less than our final offer for our purchase and got more than asking for our sale. You cant ask for much more than that. Margaret's laid back yet very experienced style made her a pleasure to work with. There was never any emergencies, stress or pressure. I would highly recommend Margaret and know who we will be calling once again for our next transaction. Thanks again Margaret!”

“Margaret Melvin is very detail oriented and very thorough in her preparations. There were no unexpected developments or any unforeseen problems at any time. Margaret knew the right contractors to make repairs and she always got involved to ensure things were done in a timely fashion. Margaret is a great communicator and made herself available any time, night or day. Margaret always responded quickly to emails or phone calls and would frequently check in with us. Margaret gave sound advise about how to prepare the house for sale. Margaret understands what buyers in this market are looking for and her recommendations were always spot on. Margaret kept difficult negotiations on track and was the voice of reason. She was able to help us overcome doubts or misgivings and see the sale through to the settlement table. I doubt another agent would have been able to do this. Everything Margaret said or did was with our best interest at heart, she never tried to convince us to do anything we didn't feel comfortable with. Margaret is also able to think outside the box and find solutions to unusual situations that are agreeable to all parties. I felt that Margaret put the people involved ahead of the business transaction and treated everyone fairly. Margaret also made sure the business end of things were in order and looked out for our best interests. We knew what to expect at every turn and there weren't any last minute surprises or problems. Choosing to work with Margaret was the best decision we made after we decided to sell our house!”

“Margaret Melvin is an excellent broker. We got a fair price for the house. Margaret was extremely helpful, diligent and understanding in offering her expertise on how to market and sell my deceased mother's home during a difficult time. I am very appreciative of her outstanding service and would recommend her to anyone wishing to buy or sell a home.”
