“I admire the commitment to our shared values, level of service to our clients, and dedication to give back to our community.”

– Melissa Lavender,

on the three things she loves most about working with Faris Team

Melissa is a big believer in living each day to its fullest and helping other people to do the same. She has a deep understanding that her role in helping clients reach their goals is one way to fulfill this calling. It’s why she’s always sought out and excelled in client-facing roles which have ultimately led her to real estate. What better way to fulfill her mission to help people live their best lives than to help people buying or selling their most significant investment – their home?

In previous roles, Melissa did this by managing corporate accounts, nurturing relationships, and liaising with global departments regarding client deliverables. As a Realtor®, her sincerity in caring for people, her honesty, and tenacity in overcoming challenges in order to hit the desired mark have left a positive impact on her clients.

Melissa’s personality is the perfect balance of work and play: she’s outgoing, determined, and strong, and yet is vivacious and has a great sense of humour. She loves the team’s commitment to our core values, the level of service we provide to our clients, and the dedication to give back to our community. She regularly volunteers at her son’s school and enjoys exploring the wonders of the great outdoors with her husband three sons. Having grown around lakes her entire life, she has a particularly love of all water sports and waterfront/recreational properties. Her perfect morning consists of yoga, meditation and good coffee.
