After obtaining her Bachelors of Science in Psychology from University of Maryland University College, Melanie began her career in the Annapolis area as a Center Director managing large educational child care centers. Her ability to recognize and exceed the needs of her customers earned her several promotions and awards during her child care management career. As the Database Manager for the David Orso Team of Compass Real Estate, Melanie is able to utilize her superior customer service and database management experience to exceed client’s expectations as they begin the process of buying or selling their homes. After years of either working or living in Baltimore, Melanie recently returned to the Arnold area where she resides with her husband and two daughters.

Title/role: Client Relationship Manager

Responsibilities: I wear a few hats on the team, but capturing leads and managing the database are probably my most important responsibilities. I ensure that our team members provide a timely follow-up with anyone who contacts us. I also maintain ongoing relationships with our clients, future clients and friends. This proactive approach ensures we are always a step ahead of anyone who is thinking about buying, selling, or even just looking for some advice.

Food you can’t live without: Definitely Sushi!

Go-to cocktail/Party trick: Red wine

Dream vacation spot: I’m pretty simple. I don’t really have a dream vacation spot. I just need a beach and I’m good!

What you love most about your job: I love a lot about my job! I work with a lot of lists and spreadsheets and I really enjoy using those tools for organization. I am a pretty social person and often work from home so I’d say my favorite part of the job is getting to call clients I have kept in touch with for a few years. I don’t always meet our clients in person, but I feel like I know so many of them through phone calls alone.

Secret weapon: My integrity.
