Melisha Savage transitioned into real estate brokerage from a long and successful career in data center infrastructure sales. Her career change helped her stay closer to the Chicago area, where she has resided most of her life. She grew up in the northwest suburbs and has for the past 15 years lived in North Center and Lincoln Square on the north side of the city. Melisha appreciates the incredible variety of outdoor activities that Chicago offers, including the farmers’ markets, street festivals, concerts, and parks—especially Winnemac and Wells Parks, where she enjoys walking her two dogs. “Chicago is fun, and it changes so much every day. I love my city and my neighborhood, and I am really excited to be able to share my knowledge with clients.” Melisha specializes in residential properties on the north and northwest side of Chicago.
Melisha credits her experiences in data centers with giving her the acumen to handle complicated projects with demanding schedules, and knowing how to share knowledge and meet deadlines—all of which are skills that make her a dedicated advocate for her clients, whether they are buying or selling a home.
In addition to her sales work, Melisha also holds a degree in English with a teaching certificate in secondary education, and has a year’s experience in the Peace Corps, stationed in Bulgaria in 1997. Besides the many outdoor activities she enjoys in the city, she is also a fantastic home cook and a fan of action movies: “The louder the better!”
