Melissa Van Leeuwen - REALTOR®
Though I was born and raised in Panama, I've lived in Texas since 2002 - spending seven years in the DFW area before moving to Austin in 2009. I'm proud to call the Lone Star State my home and I can't imagine living anywhere else!
My mission is to be a fierce advocate for both buyers and sellers - and deliver superb client service by leveraging my focused, organized approach to the real estate process that provides clear step-by-step guidance while being sensitive to my clients' needs and best interests. I bring a unique and fresh perspective to the real estate industry that has been shaped by more than 10 years of corporate marketing experience as well as my multi-cultural background. I'm fluent in Spanish, which has provided me with the opportunity to work with a variety of international clients throughout my corporate career.
I work equally with both residential buyers and sellers - with specific experience in relocation, residential leases, and new home and condo construction. Geographically, my focus is on helping clients interested in the master-planned community of Steiner Ranch (where I've lived since 2010) as well as the surrounding Four Points and Lake Travis areas.
