Melissa De Maria

My Real Estate sales career started in 2005. Prior to that, my husband and I worked together in his chiropractic practice for 17 years. We both retired in 2000 to raise our children. We sent one off to college and the other entered high school.  It was then time for me to follow my passion. We had always been real estate investors and I loved houses. I obtained my Real Estate Sales Associate license in 2005 and joined Keller Williams. I have helped many families achieve their real estate goals whether they have been dreaming of owning their own home, need to sell their current home or investors seeking to create financial wealth through real estate.

I have served on the Associate Leadership Council for Keller Williams Tampa Properties. The council consists of those agents who are the 20% producers in our market center. I am consistently in the Top 15 in production year in and year out in an office of over 400 agents. Thanks to my wonderful clients!!  I am also a certified instructor and teach other realtors how to create their businesses.
