Hi, I’m Mel Ross, and I am a Sales Representative with the Rise Realty Group. I am beyond excited to share my ever expanding local market knowledge with you on your real estate journey. I cannot wait to work together!
I am a mom of two amazing, larger than life boys Lochlan and Broderick. Lochlan is an old soul who has the biggest heart, he loves all the sports offered in the Brantford community. Broderick is a spitfire who keeps us on our toes and yet such a gentle soul who loves all animals. My husband Chris is my forever soul mate. He continuously supports all of my out of this world ideas including my mid-life career change. Together we own a Florida vacation home right beside Disney although we have yet to visit this magical place. We have a 9-year-old Shiloh shepherd Leeroy who is the heart of our family. Fun fact, I used to be terrified of dogs and now own a 150-pound pup.
I started my career as a Correctional Officer in a maximum-security institution and have worked within the realm of Correctional Services for 14 years. This career path has heightened my attention to detail, communication, and the ability to create a calm presence in a stressful situation.
For me, a challenging part of being a Correctional Officer was to contain my large, outgoing personality, luckily for me these qualities fit perfectly into Real estate.
Real estate has always been a passion of mine, and I’m so excited I finally decided that its ok to do what you love and call it a career, in fact it’s an honour. I love that every home and family have a story to tell and I’m beyond excited to become a chapter in each and every one of your stories. I am thrilled to be a Realtor with The Rise Realty Group. Ashley, Lisa, Alex and Kyle have welcomed me with open arms and I am so excited to be part of this journey.
All of these skills I have refined to serve you very well as your trusted Realtor®. Honesty, trust, communication and dedication. All but a few skills that I cannot wait to share with you as we work together to achieve your real estate goals.
