Melissa Townsend

It’s All About You…Real Estate, LLC
(352) 304-5687

Melissa Townsend entered the industry in 2016 and was mentored by Richard Schleicher, founder and, at that time, broker and owner of It’s All About You…Real Estate, LLC. She dedicated herself to providing exceptional customer service, believing wholeheartedly in the brokerage name and its culture. 

In early 2022, she purchased the brokerage with the goal of continuing to develop the brand that Rich created—a specialized, boutique brokerage that offers an unparalleled level of service with an exceptional network of resources in lending, insurance, and the construction trades.

“I leverage my community resources to achieve my customer’s goals,” Melissa says. “I have an extensive list of tradespeople who can help in preparing properties to sell, assist buyers in developing their remodeling budgets, and make repairs in a cost effective and timely manner when needs arise during a contract’s inspection period.” 

“My father was a general contractor who took me to work with him during school breaks,” she adds. “At a young age I learned to appreciate fine craftsmanship, the importance of clear communication, and the value of key relationships.”

As a result of her professionalism, diligence, and knowledge, Melissa and her brokerage have a reputation for buying and selling unique properties.
