Having lived in Charleston and Mount Pleasant area for the past 16 years, Melissa Loy is a realtor with a passion for living in the Lowcountry! A South Carolina native, Melissa grew up in Fort Mill as the daughter of a contractor/licensed home inspector (father) and a kitchen designer (mother). Thus, it was natural to develop into a home design and real estate enthusiast! Melissa understands the importance of LOCATION, appreciating the value of owning property, and being able to identify a home's potential. Prior to entering the real estate world in 2012, Melissa worked in public relations and media marketing; thus, there aren’t too many Charleston faces or paths Melissa hasn’t crossed, making her an expert in all things Charleston and most importantly, the various Charleston communities, their events and opportunities! From new homes to family-friendly communities, the sea islands, beach resorts and golf communities, Melissa knows Charleston! Additionally, Melissa gets the importance of social media in everyday life. In today's era, time is of the essence, and innovative real estate technology coupled with social media allows clients the opportunity to narrow their home search. Before ever scheduling an in-home viewing, clients take advantage of virtual tours, preferred home needs advanced listing searches, and cutting-edge mapping. I am excited to provide my clients with these modern and fresh features! Providing clients real estate information while scrolling through their social news feeds, or with the swipe of their smartphone, iPads and notebooks! When not finding her clients their next great property investment, or browsing the social feeds, Melissa enjoys boating with her husband, two kids and rescue dog, reading Americas next bestseller, catching sun on Isle of Palms, hanging at her community pool in Oyster Point, volunteering at Hibben Preschool and enjoying any one of Charleston’s many local events. Melissa is excited to assist you in your real estate needs in the most beautiful, majestic and stress-free city in the south. Melissa is a trusted local expert Realtor – nobody cares more about finding you a piece of Lowcountry real estate!
