Melissa joined Ray White in November 2020 as a member of our expanding Value Team. A quick study, we were delighted with how seamlessly she slotted in. Her calm demeanor, attention to detail and quiet diligence has made her a firm favourite with both the team and the agents she looks after.
Melissa originates from South Africa. In her younger years, she wanted to be an architect, but quickly discovered that science wasn’t her forte. She dabbled in modelling, which saw her travelling to New York, before returning to South Africa to obtain her Bachelor's degree in Marketing, followed by a course in Digital Marketing. During her degree she was proud to secure a marketing internship at Ferrari South Africa. After her studies Melissa took on an internship for Consolidated Solutions, a digital marketing agency in Johannesburg.
In 2019 Melissa emigrated with her family to New Zealand. Unable to take on paid employment due to residency restrictions, and not one to sit around all day, she filled her time volunteering at the SPCA and successfully studying for a diploma in photography.
As soon as she was able, Melissa sought paid employment and we snapped her up.
In her spare time Melissa likes to spend time with her family and her fiance, taking every opportunity to explore and ‘be tourists’ in this new place they’re proud to call home.
