About Melissa

HI! I’M MELISSA Born in Ogden, Utah, with a short stint in New York before settling in Manalapan, New Jersey with my husband Davin, twins – Nicholas and Gabriella & dog Tahlulah, I’ve had time to observe the real estate market, gathering much needed experience along the way. Prior to my real estate career, I worked for the National Football League in New York City, and then in medical sales for many years. I delved deeper into the Real Estate Market in 2005, helping my clients get the best deals possible and managing portfolios. My unique skill set and result-oriented approach has won me several awards, including the NJAR Circle of Excellence, Distinguished Sales & Five Star Professional Awards Recipient, the Remax 100% Club, and the Hall of Fame & Executive Club Awards. I’ve been featured on the cover of Top Agent Magazine and Within Industry Magazine, appeared on Inside Edition as a top real estate agent and I am endorsed by Dave Ramsey. These awards and recognitions are a testament to the uniqueness and quality of services I offer. Some of my industry accolades include: • CDPE (Certified Distressed Property Expert) • CNE (Certified Negotiation Expert) • NAEA (National Association of Expert Advisors) • CHSA (Certified Home Selling Agent) I am a full time agent with a team consisting of myself as the team leader, 2 buyers’ agents and an assistant. In October 2018, I joined eXp Realty – one of the fastest growing real estate brands in the industry.

In 2019, I opened eXp Realty Central Jersey, a branch office located in Freehold, NJ. It is truly a blessing to be able to pursue my passion while helping people actualize their dreams. My success can be attributed not just to my passion for real estate, but also to my intuition regarding the psychology of buying and selling, which helps me to obtain the possible outcome for my clients. I recognize and value the trust placed in me by my clients and I strive to meet and exceed their expectations. I would love the opportunity to earn your business. I am confident I will exceed your expectations.

Christian Schlueter
RE/MAX at Barnegat Bay -4 Offices- Toms River, Forked River, Manahawkin, Long Beach Island
About Christian

I have been a licensed Realtor® since 1985. My wife Sharon and I began at the same time. We have added to our Team over the years. In 2001, Sharon and I decided that we needed more control over our real estate business, so we joined REMAX, one of the Premier Real Estate Companies in the world. This change gave us the opportunity to be completely in charge of every aspect of our business, from Marketing to creating our Team and formalizing our business by referral model. Our award winning Team consists of myself, my wife Sharon, my daughter Jennifer Francis (since 1993) and David Schlueter (Since 2015). We provide exemplary service from the time that we meet out clients, to long after the transaction has concluded. Many of our client relationships have lasted more than 30 years and we have had the honor to sell to multiple generations of the same family! The Real Estate Industry continues to evolve and change at lightning speed. Many of the changes can be attributed to technology, however, changing laws and regulations have made the real estate industry much more of a challenge for Realtors®. In order to remain the best in our business, and best serve our clients, we continuously attend webinars, seminars, lectures and additional training that keeps us 'Above the Crowd'. As the technology gives more and more information to the consumer, there needs to be a local expert to explain what it all means to them. Real Estate is a contact sport and we remain involved from beginning to well after the close of title to make sure that our client's needs are met. Please feel free to contact myself or any member of my team for any of your Real Estate Services. In addition to the areas listed below, we cover all of Ocean County and Southern Monmouth County.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Lakewood?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Lakewood?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date.
