“Making A Difference by Doing It Right”
Melina MacNellie was born in 1986 and raised on acreage just south of Brisbane alongside her 4 siblings. Both of Melina’s parents were raised on farms so she was taught very early on not to shy away from hard work.
In 2003 Melina landed herself a traineeship with LJ Hooker where she quickly discovered an absolute love for helping people achieve their goals.
After 7 years of developing as a property manager and real estate sales agent Melina decided it was time to take on a new career path that would help to grow her skills further. In 2011 she was successful in obtaining employment within the finance industry with one of the major banks. The career change allowed Melina to further her knowledge and understand the other side of home ownership from a finance perspective. This is another aspect to Melina that separates her from the rest.
Rest assured when clients meet with Melina she will seek to understand their current situation and where they see themselves within 5 to 10 years. This allows her to be certain she guides her clients in the right direction with their property purchases and sales. Melina has her clients best interest at heart and endeavours to help them reach their property goals by always doing the right thing.
On a personal note Melina is very much supported by her 2 sons, 2 step children, caring and loving partner, amazing parents and her little sister & best friend who has been there for her throughout every journey in her life. Her home is filled with laughter and in her spare time she enjoys spending it with her family having BBQ’s, paddle boarding, walking along the beach, kicking a footy in the park and enjoying the simple things in life.
Phrases often used by Melina are “do what you love”, “be the best version of you” and “begin with the end in mind”.
One of Melina’s biggest achievements other than raising children has been conquering the Kokoda trail in Papua New Guinea in 2016. This challenge was one that really tested her mind and will power. It taught her that you truly can achieve absolutely anything you put your mind to. In Melina’s words “the only challenge you have is yourself and your mind”.
Whilst Melina is passionate about property, as mentioned earlier her biggest passion is to help others. Melina has a deep desire to help others be successful professionally and personally through sharing experiences and learnings. Leading by example, encouraging others to set challenges and achieve them, stepping outside their comfort zones and truly making the most out of every day.
Melina’s holistic approach to helping her clients means no question is left unanswered. She is energetic, friendly, outgoing, down to earth, upfront and honest. Melina is determined to make a difference in the Real Estate industry by “doing it right”. She displays integrity, delivers excellence and drives results.
