Being raised in a military family and now a military spouse, I am no stranger to relocating and embracing a new community. As a licensed realtor in Tampa FL, I work with many home buyers and sellers around the Bay; including Carrollwood, Westchase, Odessa, Lutz, Land O Lakes, Wesley Chapel, New Tampa, Brandon, Riverview, and all areas in between. I understand the stresses that come with moving, especially with a PCS and the deadlines that go with it. I am committed to making the process as seamless as possible by handling all the details, deadlines, keeping my clients updated every step of the way, along with implementing outside-the-box ideas and techniques to help my give my clients the best experience as they transition to their next endeavors.

I graduated from the University of Maryland, University of Europe with a BA in Human Resource Management. Soon after, I began working in a  government contractor role as a database analyst for the United States Air Force in the United Kingdom. After meeting my husband who is currently serving in the Air Force and was stationed in the UK, we married and got an assignment to MacDill AFB in Tampa FL. I first accepted a position as a real estate assistant and took those years to dedicate myself to becoming a subject matter expert in all things real estate. This ignited my passion for helping families in the real estate endeavors and now I devote my days as a full-time real estate agent. I pride myself on honesty and integrity and keeping up to date with the ever-changing real estate market, trends, loans, and benefits for my clients. I am communicative, thorough, and detail-oriented — and I’ll be alongside you every step of the way. I will go above and beyond to serve my clients; whether at the negotiation table or after the transaction has closed; I am fully committed to you!

During my free time, I love walking and hiking with my 3 dogs, exploring all that nature has to offer. I enjoy reading and watching movies with my husband, along with exploring new restaurants and traveling. I also volunteer a lot time in the military community, creating events and get-togethers for military spouses to meet and make friends.



"I came from out of state to find a new home to purchase for my family. We were relocating from Virginia to Florida and needed something fast and cost-effective. I came down for a weekend to begin looking. I found Renee through word-of-mouth about her Real Estate experience and ability to make her clients feel comfortable. The information I was given about her was all true. 2 months before I even came down Florida to meet with Renee and start looking, she sent me daily listings of homes and always asked “is there anything I can do for you”. She also sent me information about school districts, shopping districts and areas that would accommodate my families’ interests and hobbies. She made herself available to me 24/7 which was extremely comforting at such a paramount time for us. When I got to Florida for that weekend of home searching it couldn’t have been more structured, exciting and fun. She went out her way to welcome us to Florida. We found the home we wanted and are now living happily in it. This is the 3 rd home we have purchased in the past 10ys and I have to say Renee has been the most passionate about her craft, knowledgeable about the market and compassionate about her clients. It was a pleasure working with her and she will be referred by me in the future. "

Renee has been the best thing that could have possibly happened to us!! She eased our minds regarding the selling of our house in every aspect, from the timing of putting it on the market until the day we left the area. She was patient with all our questions and concerns along the way, answering everything quickly, no matter what time we asked. Renee is the best we have ever worked with!

Renee is a consummate professional. The buying process was very easy. She was very pleasant to work with from start to finish, and continues to be there after the sale. When you work with Spartan Realty Group, it really is a relationship as well a friendship. I could not have asked for a better choice in a realtor. I wanted to work with a veteran, and could not be happier that I found Renee. She and her team definitely exceeded expectations. Thank you!

"If you are looking for a home, Melanie is the person you want to go to. She was so helpful and knowledgeable throughout our whole buying experience. She took care of everything, and made it so much less stressful for us. We reached out to her months before we were even moving to the area. She was so patient with us, and patiently waited until we were ready to pull the trigger on everything. She went from a stranger, to a friend. She listened to what we were looking for and narrowed areas, and details of houses for us to view and think about. She is very Knowledgeable about the different areas around Tampa. Definitely reach out to Melanie if you are even thinking about buying a house. She will make your home buying process a great experience." T Haertling

"Melanie is hands down, the best realtor we’ve ever worked with. She made the building process so much easier with weekly video updates (we were out of state for the duration of our build), and consistent communication throughout the six month process. She was always there every step of the way. Melanie is attentive, detail oriented, and a great communicator. If you are looking for a realtor in the Tampa area, she’s the best of the best!"
