With over 18 years of real estate brokerage success and over 250 million dollars in career sales & listings ranging from $200,000 to $7,500,000, Melanie Baker is highly regarded by clients and colleagues for her market expertise, professionalism and integrity.
She brings an unwavering client commitment along with invaluable market knowledge & experience to the negotiation table, better enabling her clients to understand the market and make the very best decisions. With an ultra appreciation for the personal touch, she offers her genuine professional opinion by thoughtfully evaluating each client and their unique needs. Melanie navigates the entire process with care and discretion, making the transaction smooth, pleasant and stress free.
From those relocating to Nashville to first time homeowners to buyers & sellers of exclusive luxury properties, Melanie has built her real estate business based on integrity, determination and expertise in the Nashville area & Williamson County market. Melanie’s successful longevity throughout decades of real estate cycles and closing literally hundreds of transactions is a testament to her resiliency and ability to adapt to changing market conditions. Zeitlin Sotheby's International assures her client's local and global recognition plus the ultimate commitment to excellence.
Melanie has high sales experience in every Nashville and Williamson County neighborhood with virtually every type of property. Melanie’s clients have also greatly benefited from her knowledge that many listings and sales take place outside the established MLS system and are not yet advertised or listed in the local MLS database. Whenever a local agent has one of these “pocket listings”, they share the information with only a handful of agents to whom they think may have potential buyers. Melanie is invariably one of the people they call. This intel is also bolstered by Melanie being a member of two local realtor-to-realtor referral groups that meet once a month to exchange upcoming listings and buyer needs.
Melanie began her career in residential real estate sales in 2000 with Zeitlin & Company Realtors after working in public relations & marketing for Hospital Corporation of America, Quorum Health Group and Murray Bicycles. Utilizing her prior marketing and public relations experience has proved to be an excellent springboard into real estate benefitting both her buyers and sellers particularly with today’s high emphasis on web-based omnichannel marketing and the need for smart engaging content.
