Melanie Mertz: Hometown realtor making a difference in her community

by Tianna G. Hansen

If you’re thinking of selling your home or looking for a new place to live, you’ll want to trust your house hunting or selling to Melanie Mertz of Keller Williams-Newtown.

Melanie has lived in Bucks County for 20 years – first a resident of Newtown for a decade, now she’s lived in New Hope for a decade and looks forward to remaining in the area.

She’s focusing on giving a home to people in these areas as well as in New Jersey. What sets Melanie apart from other realtors is her extensive financial background and her local knowledge of the area as a resident herself. She knows what a homeowner is seeking.

With an MBA in Finance and an accounting background, Melanie can help you negotiate the very best price in the market without any surprises at closing.

As the events of the last few years in the real estate industry show, people forget about the tremendous financial responsibility of purchasing a home at their peril. 

Melanie is here with the answers and a deep understanding of how to go about avoiding these downfalls when buying a home. The biggest goal for Melanie as a realtor, local resident and parent is being present in the community.

“I love being part of the local community, it’s a lot of fun,” Melanie says. “I know what’s going on locally, I know the best places to live and what’s around the area that would draw you in. I like to make my presence known.”

Melanie is a sponsor for Solebury Baseball & Softball League, so you’ll get used to seeing her face overlooking the field this season. She was also a program sponsor at the March 23rd St. Baldrick’s community event at the New Hope-Solebury Upper Elementary School.

Melanie participated in the New Hope & Lambertville Winter Festival with her snowman folk art and will be designing a scarecrow for the Peddler’s Village Scarecrow Festival.

“I try to be different than the average realtor.”

Her name is all around town, and you’ll want to get to know her in person. You’ll see Melanie as a vendor at the New Hope Celebrates PrideFest in May.

Be sure to stop by and say hello to your friendly neighborhood realtor. Melanie wants to make a positive difference in her community.
