“I became a realtor following the tragic death of my 18 year-old son, Bobby Gleason in 2007. After learning how fragile life really is, I decided to leave my 23 year advertising and sales career with Clear Channel Radio for the dream of becoming a realtor. My passion is finding perfect homes for my clients, as well as selling,” Melanie Gleason said.
Since becoming a realtor Melanie hasn’t looked back, each year since 2009 she successfully continues to win the Million Dollar Club award, being a multi-million dollar producer every year. Melanie takes pride in her relationships and knows the dedication and interpersonal skills necessary to be a great realtor. Melanie is also devoted to her community, holding multiple memberships in various organizations: Huntington Chamber of Commerce, Women to Women, Village of Barboursville Garden Club; and volunteers with the Friends of Hospice of Huntington.
