Melissa is a licensed REALTOR® who is passionate about supporting people throughout the process of buying their dream home. She is able to connect with clients, understand their wants and needs, and make them comfortable with the home buying experience. She is focused on earning her clients’ trust through tenacious hard work and genuine honesty; all while having some fun in the process. “Nothing brings me more joy than meeting new clients and getting to know them as people,” she says.

Hardworking, loyal, and determined, Melissa Hagen is driven to exceed her clients’ expectations and will confidently navigate them through the real estate market to ensure an enjoyable and successful experience. Known as “the Listening Agent,” she understands the importance of hearing every detail that is crucial to her client in their home search. “The details are like puzzle pieces that are needed to solve the big picture, and solving the puzzle is extremely important and satisfying,” Melissa says. Always on her toes, she is quick to reply by email, text, or phone calls; often outside of regular business hours. She explains all documents and paperwork in detail with each client to ensure a smooth, worry-free transaction.

Prior to real estate, Melissa spent 13 years as an Esthetician where she built amazing relationships with her clients. She was, and still is, very passionate about healthy skin care. 

Living in Cary since 2006, she is amazed by how much there is to do. “North Carolina is such a beautiful state from the coast to the mountains, with so many green areas,” she says. Visiting and exploring all of the quaint downtown areas is one of her favorite things to do. Her husband Ryan, is a director of consulting at a software company. She has a daughter, Patience, who attends Appalachian State University, a step-daughter, Kayla, who attends the College of Charleston; son, Jackson, and step-son, Will, are both in high school. They also have a dog named Izzie. The family likes to spend a fun, yet relaxing, time together on their boat and Melissa says, “we cherish the time spent with our kids while they are young adults since we know they might not always live close to us.” Hiking, walking, or anything that involves being outdoors and in the woods is another way Melissa enjoys spending her time saying, “it is very therapeutic for me.”

Melissa grew up in Annapolis, MD and loved the summers; where she spent a lot of time on the water, boating with friends and family.

Always giving back to the community, Melissa supports the American Red Cross, A Place at the Table, Kokabooth Amphitheatre, and is always ready and willing to help a friend, neighbor, or someone in need. She also participates in the “Compass Cares” program, which supports meaningful causes in our local community.
