The striking face that greets all who walk through the office door, the engine room of the business, as we call her, is Melissa Patzel. Melissa has worked alongside Valerie from the beginning of Valerie’s journey into the real estate field and is a valuable asset to the company. She and her partner, Ric who originates from one of the most scenic destinations in the world, New Zealand, live in Millicent and enjoy much of the freedom of country life, particularly the fun of motor bike riding! Another passion of Ric’s is fishing which Mel (who has recently decided to accompany him) is now discovering is a relaxing break away from the heavy demands of her role in the office. Always returning to work refreshed and relaxed, our clients regularly comment on how enjoyable it is to step into our office! Mel is the Office Manager, Sales Consultant back-up and also oversees the Rental Department.
