Melissa Stella DeForest
Director of Agent Development - Rhinebeck/Licensed Real Estate Salesperson

Having been born and raised in Upstate New York, I have a very strong affection and personal connection to the area. I grew up in Accord NY, went to college in Albany, then moved to Queens in 2004 post-graduation. I had an amazing career in the NYC hospitality industry for 11 years where I specialized in management, customer service, and catering to my clients every whim. Although I thoroughly enjoyed living and working in the “city”, I found myself traveling upstate every weekend. While others were traveling to the beach, I was going back Upstate to enjoy the fruits of the area: hiking, relaxing outdoors, visiting family and enjoying the quaint shops and restaurants in the small towns in, and around, the area.

I realized at a young age that creating a real home is the key to comfort and happiness. When purchasing a house you need to see yourself there and feel that it is not just a house, but more importantly, a HOME – a place of serenity and support for family and cherished friends. Upstate living is a lifestyle that anyone can and should enjoy. I offer the personalized knowledge of the area and professional business acumen that will help you find your dream home or weekend getaway!
