Melissa Martin

Melissa was born and raised in Simsbury, Connecticut. As a child, she had vacationed to Charleston with her family and knew that it was the right place to move for college. She graduated from the College of Charleston in 2001 with a degree in Corporate Communications and a minor in Business Administration. Upon graduating, Melissa started working for a multi-family builder and developer as a developer associate. She enjoyed working with very successful developers and learning the ins and outs of multi-family development and construction. As her passion grew more and more for the industry, Melissa became a realtor in 2003. She truly enjoys helping her clients obtain their real estate goals whether it is buying or selling in the Lowcountry area and creating lifetime clients/ friends in the process. Currently, Melissa lives in Mount Pleasant with her husband Greg and their daughters Reese and Cecilia.

Client Testimony

Barb and Mike Godfrey:
Working with Melissa Martin was a great experience. We were not even close to the Charleston area and she always took a great deal of time to make sure our time in the area was well spent. She listened to everything we wanted for this purchase and always had great recommendations. This process took well over a year and she never pressured us into a purchase and continuously worked to make sure we found the best property for our price range and family needs. She was always willing to help out with any question we came up with and made sure everything was taken care of when we could not be available. This was an excellent experience and would definitely recommend Melissa for any real estate purchase.

Kim & George David:
Kim and I want to thank you for your outstanding effort and contribution toward our purchase of a home in Charleston. It’s not easy to deal with “foreigners” who don’t understand the market, and don’t really know what they want…but you provided the flexibility, effort and commitment that made it possible. Our need to do everything long distance made your efforts more difficult and important but you truly did an exemplary job. You have been an invaluable ally!!!!!

“Melissa Martin was terrific. My search took more than 1 1/2 yrs. and I was doing it from PA. The website, listings, and favorites were full of information and a real benefit. Melissa frequently made contact with me and always replied to my emails and questions promptly. She helped me perfrom a quick and efficient search, hooked me up with great financial people and made sure everything went smoothly. I don't think I could have had a better experience and I ended up with a beautiful new house and a very good price.” – Anonymous

“We have purchased 5 homes in the 35 years that we have been married. Working with the Cassina Group has been the best experience of all of them. The entire staff was knowledgable, personable, helpful and professional. Melissa Martin was a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend this group!” – Joyce S

“I cannot speak highly enough of our recent real estate purchase experience with Melissa Martin and the Cassina Group. Because my husband and I have lived in the same home for 22 years I was totally out of my element looking at real estate. Melissa was right there with me from the beginning emailing, texting, and talking whenever I needed her. She listened to exactly what we were looking for and guided us to the perfect condo for us. Her professional connections to those that needed to be involved in the whole closing process were excellent! We have already recommended her to friends and will continue to do so.” Joanne Coker

“My husband and I bought a lot on James Island with the help of Melissa Martin at The Cassina Group. I would highly recommend her and The Cassina Group. They were fast when it came time to closing and Melissa was always on top of our questions, easy to communicate with and prompt with answers. We'll definitely be using her next time we buy/sell and I'll be recommending her to friends!” Petra Sheaffer
