Certifications and Recognitions
I consider myself a Goldsboro native though I was born in Sumter, South Carolina and raised all over the country! Growing up, my father was active duty Air Force and we moved houses just about every 3 to 5 years. But we settled in Goldsboro in the mid 1970's and finally began to call this place our home and this is where I've lived most of my life and where we raised our children. I graduated from Eastern Wayne High School and later worked toward a Marketing Degree at Wayne Community College. A little later in life, I met and married an Air Force fighter pilot, Bruce Gates, and continued to travel the world with him and our two beautiful children. He retired from active duty in 2004 while stationed here at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base and life since then has been nothing short of incredible!
I have always been involved in multiple extra-curricular activities through my church and school. When I'm not volunteering with various youth groups and organzations, there's nothing I like better than spending time with my family, traveling in our 5th wheel camper, enjoying one of North Carolina's many fishing piers or ocean surf while waiting for the big one to bite!
I love introducing newcomers to this wonderful area that I call home so I hope you'll give me a call, send me an email or text when I can be of service to you for your real estate needs.
See what Melanie's Clients have to say about working with her:
I bought my first house through Melanie 9 years ago and she has been so helpful and patient as first time home buyers. She answered all our questions, put us at ease and made the process very easy to understand. Fast forward 9 years later send she is again helping us but this time selling the house. The selling process was made much more understandable through Melanie's involvement in everything from beginning to end. Highly recommend using her services.
Melanie had helped me with the purchase of 2 homes. She is very knowledgeable of this area, contractors, banks, anyone needed to obtain a home. Perhaps most remarkable is her availability long after the sale has been completed.
Melanie is an amazing real estate agent. She helped me sell my mothers house after her passing as part of closing the estate sale. She made the process extremely simple and easy for me, especially since I live out of state. There were numerous times she went out of her way to ensure that we sold the house, regardless of the hardships we endured. At one point, there was a lien taken out on the house due some lawyer issues many years ago. Melanie work overtime to make sure the lien could be removed within the time period required to sell the house. I cannot recommend a better real estate agent in the area.
My husband and I were first time home buyers and new to the area. Melanie, was very knowledgeable and explained everything to us in detail. Whenever we had questions she was always there and got back to us quickly. She was professional and made the whole process less stressful! I would highly recommend Melanie Gates.
