Melanie Matthews is the quintessential jack-of-all-trades. Growing up with both parents in the real estate industry, she absorbed the business first hand. She has a Communication Studies and Journalism Degree from California State University of Northridge where she went on to become a writer for entertainment shows in Los Angeles. She studied abroad for a summer in Spain to perfect her Spanish and also backpacked through Australia for a spontaneous experience. Hearing so many wonderful things about Austin motivated her to move here with her sister years ago, and will never leave the city she fell in love with. Melanie has a passion for people, and real estate so she decided to pursue the industry full time and became licensed in Texas. Clients connect with Melanie because she is down-to-earth, reliable, and knowledgeable. She is a volunteer for Austin Pets Alive when she has free time and loves to be outdoors either hiking, wake surfing, or paddle boarding.
