Melanie H. Crittenden
Melanie enjoys helping her clients gain clarity and confidence as they navigate the real estate market. Starting with frequent communication, she takes the time to listen and understand a client’s unique needs and challenges– whether that includes finding a dream home or selling a home at a top price. Her background in finance and her analytical skills make her a thorough problem-solver and successful negotiator. A native of Richmond, Melanie has extensive knowledge of the Richmond market. Her well-developed network of resources combined with her thoughtful yet persistent approach produces smooth and successful transactions. Throughout the process, Melanie strives to exceed clients’ expectations with commitment to premier service where honesty, integrity and respect are essential aspects of every transaction.
The agent-client relationship is very important to Melanie: “I feel truly privileged to be included in the big decisions within my clients’ lives. Helping my clients achieve their goals and dreams is immensely gratifying and I particularly enjoy creating sincere and lasting relationships through the process.”
Melanie graduated from St. Catherine’s School and the University of Virginia, earning a degree in Economics. She began her career in New York City as a corporate financial analyst, and later worked in banking in Washington D.C. In 1991, she returned to Richmond with her husband Guy where they have raised three wonderful daughters. Passionate about family, the outdoors and the environment, Melanie enjoys any activity on the water with her family and beloved Golden Retrievers, especially on the James River and at her family river cottage on the Chesapeake Bay.
