About Me – Your Trusted Real Estate Professional

Hello and welcome! I’m thrilled to share a bit about myself and my journey in real estate, where every transaction is more than just a deal – it's a step towards building lasting relationships and creating community.

Negotiation Expertise

"If I had ten hours to chop down a tree, I would spend the first eight sharpening my axe." This quote by Abraham Lincoln encapsulates my approach to negotiation. Since becoming a realtor in 2007, I’ve dedicated myself to constantly honing my skills. Regularly immersing myself in books and attending negotiation seminars, I stay at the forefront of effective negotiation strategies. This commitment ensures that when I’m representing you, every step of the way, I’m negotiating with unmatched precision and skill.

Creative Marketing and Video Production

Since 2013, my journey in video production has intertwined seamlessly with my real estate career, allowing me to be a creative marketer with a difference. Understanding that today’s property market demands more than just listings, I use the power of video to bring properties to life, creating engaging and immersive experiences for potential buyers.

Local Market Expertise

As a listing agent, my edge lies in my in-depth understanding of the market. Meticulous and data-driven, I keep detailed spreadsheets, tracking market trends and statistics. This analytical approach ensures that when you list with me, you’re equipped with insightful market knowledge, helping you make informed decisions.

Technology-Forward Marketing

In marketing your home, I leverage the latest technology to offer unmatched visibility and engagement. From professional photography and 360 tours to innovative live open house tours streaming across multiple platforms like Facebook, YouTube, and, your property receives the exposure it deserves. Additionally, my commitment to transparency is reflected in the detailed weekly market reports I provide, keeping you informed every step of the way.

Community Involvement and Awards

Community is at the heart of everything I do. My initiative, Discover Fort McMurray, showcases local businesses, fostering a vibrant, supportive local economy. My efforts in organizing bi-annual MoonLight Madness sales have not only benefited over 30 local businesses but also earned me a Citizens Award from the Mayor in 2018, a testament to my passion for community development.

Leadership and Advocacy

I’ve also served as the past President of the Fort McMurray Real Estate Board and a Director for the Fort McMurray Chamber of Commerce (2018-2020). These roles have allowed me to share and amplify my passion for elevating the real estate profession and advocating for both realtors and clients alike.

Commitment to Excellence and Continuous Learning

Since 2012, my partnership with Richard Robbins International, a top-tier Canadian coaching organization, has significantly enhanced my skills and service quality in real estate. This collaboration has connected me with a dynamic network of innovative agents across the country, my 'CCR family.' It's an invaluable resource for exchanging ideas and strategies, ensuring that I can offer you top-notch referrals nationwide.

Children’s Miracle Network

It has been my honour to be one of the top agents in Alberta contributing to the Children’s Miracle Network. With every home sale, I make a contribution to this incredible organization. Contributions from Fort McMurray support the Stollery Hospital in Edmonton, a world-renowned pediatric cardiac hospital serving our community. Inspired by a promise made to fellow RE/MAX Agent Bruce Johnson in 2016, I have committed to ‘doing more’ — a promise I am proud to uphold.

Personal Touch

Away from real estate, I cherish my time on the golf course with my partner, Paul, and adore being a mom to my Siberian Forest Cats, Jewels & Jake. Fort McMurray is more than a location to me – it’s a place where friendships turn into family. That’s how I view my relationship with my clients too. When you work with me, you become part of my extended family.

Your Next Move

Remember, whether buying or selling, you deserve more from your move. With a down-to-earth, professional style (Starbucks in hand, of course!), and a commitment to keeping you informed and protected every step of the way, I’m here to ensure your real estate journey is as rewarding as it is successful.

Get more from your move – let's make Fort McMurray feel like home, together!


When we moved here 3 years ago I was looking for a trusting and knowledgeable person. Melanie’s videos are what helped me make my decision to choose her. She knows her business very well and listens to all concerns needs and wants She made the process seamless as we had to make a trip out here which could have been consuming but because of her we had a home picked right away! Hands down she is the best! I recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell She definitely “goes beyond the lawn sign”
