Real Estate Broker
Organization and enthusiasm are just two of the vast array of attributes Melissa brings to the real estate industry. As a nurse in a past vocational life, Melissa chose real estate as her next adventure due to her love of helping people. She is meticulous in her work style and anticipates future needs with precision and care. Having purchased and sold her share of real estate in and out of Transylvania County, Melissa has experienced the good and the bad. From such insight, she has created her own standards of communication, marketing, and professionalism, and she gives her all to every inquiry and transaction.
Being newer to the industry, Melissa is working alongside Jennifer Merrell, a seasoned agent. Between the two, they are making real estate magic in the Brevard area market. Melissa, her husband, and their daughter and son live in Sherwood Forest. She is an avid bluegrass fan and can be found all over WNC listening to her favorite local bands. When she isn't working, Melissa is the track and field coach for the local Special Olympics.
Beth and I want to thank you for having the privilege and joy of having worked with Melissa Bower. Melissa exemplifies, in our opinion, what one would hope to find when working with a real estate agent. Melissa’s engaging personality and her aptitude in listening and communicating to understand our hopes and dreams and needs, served us well as we set out to discover our new home in Brevard. Melissa was diligent in setting up appointments of housing that matched our desires and quickly assessed our verbal and non-verbal responses as we viewed several opportunities. She was mindful of our situation and time constraints, being diligent to not waste our time. Our house in California was in escrow and we needed to find our new home. We had flown in from California, looking at three different locations of which Brevard was the last, but most alluring. Melissa has been, throughout this whole purchase process, very available and efficient and helpful. She arranged and executed everything in a totally professional manner. From offer through closing, with everything being done from afar, she was meticulous in detail and friendly in demeanor. And upon our arrival to Brevard met us to ensure that we would be comfortable in the moving-in process … including the all important coffee maker and a friendly painter. We cannot say enough in our appreciation of Melissa … as a newfound friend, as an excellent real estate agent and as an exemplary witness to Steve Owen & Associates.
