Prior to real estate, I enjoyed a long and successful career in sales and management as a business owner and property management. So, I understand the business and the financial implications associated with selling your home. I understand the importance of HOW your home is marketed and the most up-to-date techniques/resources available in today’s market to get it sold! Selling a home can be an emotional experience as well, so I try to be very sensitive to your needs and requirements. As your realtor, my job is to price your home at market value, use good and solid marketing techniques that work, and sell it with professionalism and honesty. This makes me a trusted realtor not only for sellers but also for first time home buyer, new construction, and investments. I have worked with my husband in the new construction rim for the past 10 years, I’m the advisor to several investors here in the Knoxville area, and first-time home buyers are my jam! I have had a huge focus on the up-and-coming East Knoxville area. With the vast amount of change of downtown and East Knoxville I’m your girl with the knowledge to help guide you in the right direction. As a Knoxville native, I witnessed its great transformation — from a boarded up and desolate downtown into a bustling metropolitan city that retains its small-town feel. My intimate knowledge of this region, and my experiences of having lived here all my life, give me enthusiasm and a desire to make my home, your home. I am Melissa Kaye Nelson your trusted Real Estate Advisor.

Melissa was wonderful! She was knowledgeable, informative, professional and most importantly- available. There was no question to small or big for her to answer! Also, Melissa’s eye for decor was a plus for staging, decluttering and curb appeal. These were major factors in making my home desirable. It you are looking for a 1 stop shop, choose Melissa Nelson!

I loved working with Melissa Nelson. She listened to what I said we wanted/needed and helped us find our perfect home. Can not thank you enough for the time and support you gave through the process.


Melissa spent three days finding and showing us houses during a last minute relocation house hunting trip! When she thought we were settling on something she didn't stop looking until she found a house that worked for us. She is extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the area and was a pleasure to work with while looking for our first Tennessee house!
