I returned to the real estate industry in June 2020, after taking a break to raise my three wonderful children. I'm now ready to get stuck in and help match people with homes as Sales Associate to Craig Ashby.
I love showing properties and finding the perfect match, making connections with locals and seeing the job through from start to finish. I like to make sure everything is done properly. It's a pleasure to help people find their dream home and to show off the beautiful Franklin district.
I grew up in Paparimu and then Glenbrook, Waiuku. I went to school in the area and have a strong standing in the community. Over the years, I have been a part of many clubs including pony clubs, netball, rugby and soccer with my children.
I am passionate about land and animals so the progression to selling the rural dream became my dream too. Residing on a lifestyle block in Pukekohe with my family and many animals including my beloved horses, I am well aware of the attraction of the Kiwi lifestyle.
With over 20 year’s sales experience in various roles, I'm a savvy negotiator and always work hard to understand exactly what you want and strive to achieve the best outcome possible.
I'm bubbly, down-to-earth and approachable whilst being focused on customer satisfaction.
Whether you're looking to buy or sell, upsize or downsize I'm here to help....... call anytime for a friendly, no obligation chat. I would love to help you with your next move.
We are so happy with our land purchase and we are confident that it would not have been as easy without the unfaltering support from Mel. Despite many obstacles, Mel pulled us over the finish line with her sheer hard work and determination. Somehow, Mel always found a way to get us the answers that we needed and we feel she went the extra mile for us. Her patience and willingness to listen gave us confidence in our decision-making which led us to our perfect plot.
We would highly recommend Mel to anyone who was looking for their own little slice of rural Auckland,. She found us exactly what we were looking for.Sarah & Martin
We are a busy couple that struggled to find time to research properties for sale. Melissa consistently updated us on properties coming to the market and showed us through multiple properties until we found our dream property.
Melissa is professional, reliable and honest and the whole process of buying property was easy with her.
We would like to thank Melissa for all her efforts and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for that perfect property.Emma & Matt
Melissa is a great hard-focused person who is not deterred by negative comments. I say this because she proved all those characteristics with us when we were in the initial stages of the bargaining for the right price for our lovely property. She stayed focused on getting the right people into the right place.
Melissa is very patient while maintaining professionalism. She eventually managed to strike the right price with vendors and us the buyers. She also managed to get our property onto the market and we struck the price that we wanted and that made it possible to secure the new property.
She was also able to link our move out from our old house to the new property. Thanks to her knowledge on such intricate scheduling. All in all we want to convey our gratitude for her professionalism and patience.
Thank you very much Melissa for all your hard work, we are enjoying our lives in our new home
RegardsLovemore & Sakhile family
A special thank you to Melissa Beresford for a quick, seamless sale of our home. When we heard Mel was back in the real estate industry we knew she was the one that would get the results we needed. Together with her knowledge of real estate, her efficiency and most importantly her genuine and honest nature we knew our house sale was in good hands. Mel goes the extra mile and makes the whole process so easy.
We highly recommend Mel and will certainly be using her again.Marcus & Aylene
We were searching for our first home and with the current COVID-19 pandemic, it was proving quite difficult to find something, and then to secure it as everything was selling so quickly. Six months into our search, we met with Mel and she went out of her way to find us a variety of properties that ticked our boxes and helped us secure our first home! She was thorough and more than happy to answer any ‘new home buyers’ questions we had - which was many! Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Melissa to anyone and use her again in the future!--Hayley & Brendon
We had been looking at houses loosely for over a year. Then we got in touch with Melissa and within three days she took us through our dream home, that ticked all our boxes. She acted fast and got us results. We are truly grateful to now be in our home.
If you’re thinking of buying or selling contact Melissa, she is a real, honest, and reliable superwoman to deal with.Melissa & Jason
