While attending Murray State University in 1998, Melanie started working in banking as a teller. Five years later, she shifted to loan processing. Having worked for a local bank in Kentucky for 13 years, processing all types of loans in-house, she gained experience with mortgage loans, home equity loans, auto loans, unsecured loans, and even floor plan loans. In 2015 Melanie and her family moved to the St. Louis area to accommodate her husband’s career. There, she took a position at another bank as a commercial mortgage loan processor. Less than a year later, she made her final transition to Homestead Financial Mortgage as a secondary market mortgage loan processor. Adding to her list of accomplishments, Melanie is now also a licensed mortgage loan advisor with Homestead.

Melanie is extremely relatable and provides a sense of comfort to customers. She prides herself on her communication skills and has always been told she’s a great listener. Given her small-town upbringing and sweet southern accent, that’s no surprise.

Getting a mortgage is a big step in life and can be very stressful. Melanie expresses to her clients that she is there for them every step of the way, which makes them feel much more at ease. What she looks forward to most is telling her customers that their loan is clear to close and that they are now in the final stretch to owning their own home.

If you are looking for your first home, an upgrade, or want additional cash flow, please reach out today. Mel is ready to review your options and help you achieve your financial and home-buying goals.
