Charleston Real Estate Professional
Born and raised in Central PA in a small town, Melody learned very early on about the power of great customer service from her first job as a waitress. She was educated at Rollins College in Psychology and launched her sales career in the computer software industry.
Melody began her real estate career in Northern Virginia, Washington D.C. Metro area in 2004. Her skills in contract negotiation, strategy development and relationship management propelled her into top producer status in her first two years. In 2011 Melody was a founding partner of The Busy Blondes in Reston VA, an award-winning real estate team that is still thriving today in the Virginia market. In 2015 Melody and her husband moved from VA to Carlsbad CA to be closer to her family. During her six years in Carlsbad, she excelled with The Agents San Diego, maintaining year-over-year performance in the top 1% in the nation in sales volume. She was also the Vice President of her homeowners’ association for six years, developing and building cohesion in a 280+ home community.
Fast forward to 2021, Melody and her family made the decision to move back to the East Coast, looking for a city rich in history, ocean access, great year-round golf weather, and exciting growth in the real estate market. Charleston, South Carolina was the natural choice!
Melody’s extensive real estate knowledge and luxury sales expertise pairs perfectly with her chosen brokerage, Daniel Ravenel Sotheby’s International Realty. She is focused on cultivating and maintaining long term business relationships, as she continues to build her business in the Lowcountry. Melody’s ability to understand her clients’ style and tastes allows her to quickly match her clients with the right property and lifestyle in any area. Known as the ‘Property Matchmaker,’ she works quickly and efficiently with her clients.
In her personal life Melody enjoys spending time with her family, cooking, running, and golfing. She lives with her husband, Jim, in Beresford Creek Landing next to Daniel Island.
Melody arranged the quick, efficient, and uncomplicated sale of my condo at 150 Bee Street in May 2022. From the beginning of the process, Melody worked with enthusiasm and transparency and showed good attention to detail. Communication was prompt throughout the whole process, and we were well-informed during the renovations, staging, and open house showings. Melody went the extra mile by arranging for the retrieval of our furnishings from storage and staging the home herself, and the results were spectacular. The photography in the promotional materials online and in the brochure was stunning. I can highly recommend Melody Novak and her team at Daniel Ravenel to sell anyone’s property, even if the owner is not in the country. They provide high quality service in every way.Dr. Lisa C
