MEET MELISSA DESANTIS
Education: B.A. – Rider University
I am originally from Ogden Utah. I moved to the East Coast in 1989 and to New Jersey in 1992. I live Manalapan, New Jersey with my husband Davin, my 2 children – Nicholas & Gabriella and my dog – Tahlulah. Prior to joining Remax Central, I worked in NYC for the National Football League and then became a sales consultant for a medical supply company.
I am a 2008, 2009 & 2010 NJAR Circle of Excellence Award Recipient. I am Monmouth County’s Quick Sale Specialist for House Buyer Network and I have also appeared on TV’s INSIDE EDITION as a top real estate expert. I am a member of the Monmouth County Chamber of Commerce and I hold the CDPE Designation – Certified Distressed Property Expert – having completed extensive training in foreclosure avoidance and short sales.
Real Estate is my passion and I thoroughly enjoy helping people make their dreams come true. I am not your “traditional” real estate agent – I use innovative marketing and programs to provide my clients with superior service. I work with each client on an individual basis designing a marketing plan based upon their specific needs. I believe my results and recommendations back up my work as a consultant. A portion of all of my sales are donated to the Children's Miracle Network.
In this challenging market, sellers and buyers need an educated, experienced agent they can trust. The right Realtor does make a difference!
- "It is with great pleasure that we write to recommend the services of Melissa DeSantis. Throught the the entire process Melissa was professional, honest, and motivated. She listened to what we wanted and did not pressure us to look beyond the parameters we set. She returned our calls and replied to our emails as if we were her only client. She was very patient with us throughout our search. The entire process, from the day she showed us the first home to the day we closed on our home she was with us every step of the way. She recommended the very best in the field to aid us, from mortgage lender to home inspector. Her advice and guidance through this process was invaluable. Her attention to detail, knowledge of the field and no-pressure approach was greatly appreciated. We can't imagine going through this process with anyone but Melissa. Anybody that buys or sells a property and does not use the Melissa DeSantis team will surely have a less than optimal experience. We are happy to recommend Melissa and her team and will definitely contact her for any future real estate needs. Chris and Amy MacDougall

- Melissa DeSantis sold my home in Manalapan, NJ. There are many realtors around but Melissa by far out surpasses them. She is an expert in her field and is one of a kind. Although it is a difficult market, Melissa made this process as easy and painless as possible for me. She provided me with top of the line marketing and internet presence as well as feedback and promotion of my home. She sold my home quickly and for top dollar. That is difficult to achieve in the market! I would recommend Melissa DeSantis to everyone - you won't find a better agent. C. Anastasia
