Melinda Deckert has always had a strong interest in land development and residential floor plans. She and her husband Ben would spend hours driving through old and new subdivisions reviewing floor plans and sharing house listings with people they knew were looking to buy a home. 11 years ago, Ben urged Melinda to get her real estate license and she has loved it ever since. She even recently convinced Ben to get his real estate license and he is now an agent at Burt Ladner too!
Before real estate, she and her husband were both licensed ministers and worked at developing and implementing operational guidelines and training for a global non-profit.
The best part about her job is the people she gets to work with. She loves the challenge of helping individuals or families find that special place to call home! The funniest thing she has ever seen when showing a client a home would have to be the time she found a large raccoon in a master bedroom closet of a vacant home!
To sum herself up in 5 words she is: Friendly, Determined, Spontaneous, Compassionate, and Loyal.
