About Melanie


“Finding a home is one of the most exciting and important milestones in anyone’s life. I’ve been through the process, and I know how crucial it is to find the best place for you and your family,” Melanie says.

Melanie is a graduate of the University of Kentucky, with a major in journalism and a minor in interior design. She has worked in sales for three Hyatt Hotels, in Lexington, Louisville and Knoxville, has worked as a travel agent in New Orleans, and operated a landscape and design business in Kansas City.   Always discovering and servicing her client’s needs.

All throughout the places she’s lived, Melanie always dreamed of coming to Carolina, often keeping a “Carolina” room in her home.  “It took me 20 years, 12 states and two husbands to get here,” Melanie says. “Home isn’t necessarily where you grew up, it’s where you find the best version of yourself.  This is the place that has changed my life in the best way possible.”

With a diverse background and experience, Melanie Matthews has become a relocation expert of sorts, bringing a unique and helpful perspective to her desire of finding her clients their perfect Cape Fear home.

Through her experience in the hospitality and travel industries, Melanie has traveled the country, from Montgomery to Minneapolis, but has found the uniqueness of the Wilmington area irresistible.  She wants to help you find your special place, too.

One thing that has been consistent in her diverse career is her focus on relationships.  Contact Melanie to begin the next chapter of your life!
