Melisa Smith

Melisa has worked in everything from retail marketing, media promotions, and social media (to name a few) - and all while studying at the University of Florida! She is a passionate person with a strong will to learn who loves creating positive change in peoples' lives through communications. Once she graduated with her degree in public relations, she knew that she wanted to use her skills to make a difference. What better way to do that than connecting clients with renters to find their perfect apartment? It is a life-changing experience!

As a Digital Marketing Strategist, Melisa works with SEO, online writing, and community outreach to create a strategic online presence. She loves to use her creative brain to think of new and exciting ways to make those apartment-renter connections. Melisa believes that choosing where to live is the one of the most personal and impactful decisions any person can make. She knows firsthand from living in Gainesville and has loved every second of it. Where you live not only affects your personal comfort, but also your growth and success! Melisa hopes that her role will make the process of finding the perfect apartment match not only easier, but also a fun and enjoyable process for renters.

Melisa loves to stay busy and try new things - whether it's new food or new places. When she's not helping renters find their perfect apartment, you can find Melisa practicing yoga to unwind, using her retail eye to style outfits, or on the road to her next adventure. She also loves creative writing, attempting to cook new recipes (Italian, please!), and playing with her mastiff/lab mix puppy, Ham.
