Hi, I am Melinda Hadden and I am proud to call Ellijay home. My family has been in this area for 5 generations. My daughter and grandchildren make that 7 generations. My family is a family of entrepreneurs. My father was owner/operator of the Pink Pig BBQ restaurant in Cherry Log for over 40 years. With his passing in November 2008, my daughter Samantha has taken over the day to day operations and it continues to remain in the family. You will have to try the Brunswick Stew and Garlic salad on your visit.
I have been in the real estate profession for 21 years. I have also has been working with foreclosures for over fifteen years and have experience handling these transactions. With my knowledge I can walk buyers through the process with ease.
Thank you for taking the time to review some information about me and how I may be able to best assist you with your real estate needs.
A native of Toledo, OH, I graduated from the University of Toledo in 1994 with a B.A. in Accounting where I was a wrestler and a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity.
Having been a resident of Georgia since 1995 and a resident of Forsyth County since 1997, I know the metropolitan Atlanta area very well.
I am married to my lovely wife of 17 years. Together, we have three children between kindergarten and 7th grade. One at Sharon Elementary, one at Riverwatch Middle School and one at Piney Grove. My wife, Shannon, is the owner of "What Comes Around" boutique on James Burgess Rd. (that little green house next to Jul's Candles). In my spare time I enjoy off-roading the back-country of N. Ga in my Jeep Cherokee and I occasionally take flying lessons out of Briscoe Airport in Gwinnett County.
In addition to the work I do for my clients, I have personally bought and/or sold close to a hundred homes. I have seen and/or experienced it all both as a buyer and seller.
I love what I do. Working in real estate is never boring, I get to meet new people almost every day and I constantly stay on top of current events within the communities I work.
My clients have thanked me for being patient, knowledgeable, professional and informative..and hilarious.. and modest. :) They've also thanked me for NOT being the Realtor who's pushy, non-responsive and/or irresponsible.
Providing real estate services in the N. Georgia area is how I pay for summer camps and my kids' orthodontist's car payments so providing you with top-notch service is mandatory. If you'd like more information about how I can make your experience as stress-free as possible, contact me. I can be reached via cell phone at 678-520-5898. Calls or text are both fine depending on your immediate needs. I can also be reached at the Lifetime Fitness in Johns Creek pretty much every weekday at 5:45 AM. :)
I look forward to working with you.
I remember the first time I visited the North Georgia Mountains...I never imagined I would call anywhere other than Miami "Home". Living here has changed my life! I am so excited that my career is to place families in the Home of their dreams and create the same experience for them that was so warmheartedly given to me.
I specialize in "Relationship Building"...creating a trustworthy, respectful partnership with whoever I am working with which generates lifelong relationships. I am driven to meet all objections and love handling unique situations with my various levels of Customer Service.
Let's start your journey today!
