Originally from Upstate New York, Melissa began her career working for the Federal Reserve after college. Thanks to the urging of grade school friends who had just moved to North Carolina she made the move to the Queen City in 1997 to work for Nations Bank which is now Bank of America. Not long aftern, Melissa met her husband to be at the Village Tavern in Southpark.
With the encouragement of her husband, Gabe Libutti, who is in the mortgage industry, Melissa earned her real estate license in 2000 and is a second-generation Realtor®®. With both families ingrained in the real estate, banking and legal professions becoming a Realtor®® was an easy choice and a perfect union.
Fostering time management, customer service and follow-through, Melissa is focused on building relationships based on trust and integrity rather than just selling homes. She is a strong advocate of home ownership and community involvement and has built a reputation for her integrity and commitment to getting the job done. She specializes in all facets of residential real estate whether navigating the way for first time home buyers, trying to score that perfect distressed property, or providing help in the luxury market. Melissa has experienced it all over the 20 years as a successful Broker/Realtor®®. In addition, she and her husband have bought, renovated and sold homes in the Metro Charlotte, Lake Norman and Los Angeles markets.
Melissa and Gabe reside in Lake Norman with their beloved Beagles Jack and Pete. In her spare time, you can find her playing sports or at sporting events, taking in a Charlotte Symphony summer pops concert, or spending time with family/friends or at their beach house in Oak Island, NC.
