About Me

A "real estate matchmaker" with a track record of success, Melissa Wachtman started her real estate career in Arizona during the devastating 2008 housing market crisis. Despite the exile of thousands of brokers, she entered the industry with optimism and seized the opportunity to help those left in the lurch by the greed of the economy. With her strategic marketing, knowledge of financial programs, determination and uncanny work ethic, Melissa defied the odds of those catastrophic times and became a top producer, with multiple awards for real estate and mortgage lending transactions in Arizona and Florida.

As a native Northeastern, she followed her heart back to Manhattan and entered the field of financial data services. Melissa joined the Thomson Reuters Fixed Income team, whose mission was to provide transparency, accountability and a higher level of accuracy with analytics into the mortgage back security sectors of the secondary markets. Her stellar performance resulted in a nomination for the "2013 Rising Star Award," recognizing the achievement of aspiring women leaders on Wall Street. Her financial services career continued to blossom and gave her the opportunity to advise friends, family and clients on the NYC real estate market, thus inspiring her transition to brokerage.

Melissa monitors and manages every transaction as if they were her own. Her astute, diversified clientele spans the globe and includes C-level executives, financiers, prominent public figures, HNW family offices, celebrities, and members of the Royal family. She conducts business with utmost care, professionalism and discretion, with a keen attention to detail and "time is of the essence" mindset that assures her clients she is working in their best interest.

"I bring Douglas Elliman my passion, work ethic, authenticity and enthusiasm for placing clients into new chapters; whether helping sellers close doors on old ones or helping buyers unlock their future into new ones."

A graduate of Philadelphia University, Melissa also studied abroad in Rome and has lived in Manhattan since 2009, currently off of Wall Street. She finds her "calm" by running along the water pathway park, and challenging herself to double Bikram yoga classes. Her philanthropic efforts involve fundraising for Cycle for Survival: Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and volunteering for Junior Achievement Association.
