Born in Charlotte to a big family full of love, Bret Melton left the nest to earn a business degree at Five Towns College just outside of New York City. With the opportunity of a paying job (and not just another internship), he moved to sunny Florida a few years after graduation. As soon as his feet hit the ground, he knew he'd be a Floridian for life!
Bret's job paid well but wasn't fulfilling him in other areas. He'd always wanted to try Real Estate thanks to his love of people and architecture, but he wasn't sure if sales was right for him. After investigating, he came to understand that Real Estate is mostly about caring for and serving people, something Bret always took great pride in no matter what his job was. In 2015, he decided to get his toes out of the Real Estate pool and jump in head first. He grew a network of Realtors and other associates as he focused on caring for his clients. Now, his greatest strength is the mortgage bankers, attorneys, and other professionals that he calls upon to navigate difficult transactions on behalf of his clients. And thanks to earning a designation as a Certified Negotiations Expert while still in college, he hangs his hat on his ability to help all sides of a transaction walk away feeling satisfied.
When Bret is not working, he enjoys volunteering at his church, joining friends for lunch (especially if it includes seafood), and playing with his two dogs, Sammie and Buddy. He might even be planning his next trip to visit his friends and family in Morocco, Africa.
