Hello, I am Melissa DeSantis.
It is truly a blessing to be able to pursue my passion while helping people actualize their dreams.
Born and raised in Ogden, Utah, I knew I was destined to live and work in a big city. At the age of 17, upon graduating high school, I left Utah. I relocated to New York City, where I worked for a few years while attending F.I.T (Fashion Institute of Technology) in the evenings and obtaining my Associate’s Degree. I continued my education, at Rider University, in Lawrenceville, NJ, and graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in Communications. Upon graduating college, I worked for the National Football League in NYC. A few years later, I was recruited by a Medical Sales Firm in the role of Sales Manager, where I worked for many years. Shortly after, I met my husband Davin, and we settled in Manalapan, NJ, where we are raising our twins, Nicholas & Gabriella.
In 2005, I had a less than stellar experience while selling my home and buying a new home. I knew that I could provide much better service and results. I began to delve deeper into the real estate industry and decided to obtain my real estate license. I have built my business throughout the years by helping families like my own achieve their financial & family goals. I take pride in my unique skill set & result-oriented approach. When you do what you love…success follows!
I am a full-time Broker Associate with a team consisting of myself as the team leader, two buyers’ agents, and an assistant. In October 2018, I joined eXp Realty – one of the industry’s fastest growing real estate brands. eXp Realty allows me to provide my clients with the best services, technology & exposure. In 2019, I continued my education and obtained my broker’s license. I opened eXp Realty Central Jersey, a branch office within eXp Realty, located in Freehold, NJ, where I am the Managing Broker of the office. It is truly a blessing to be able to pursue my passion while helping people actualize their dreams. I recognize and value the trust my clients place in me, and I strive to meet and exceed their expectations. I would love the opportunity to earn your business. I am confident I will also exceed your expectations!
