Melinda’s clients appreciate her pragmatic, business-savvy approach to real estate transactions and corporate opportunities.

Melinda draws on her experience as a business owner to help clients evaluate opportunities and negotiate transactions that meet their strategic business goals.

She brings specialized expertise in transactions involving senior and affordable housing and multifamily properties; and with healthcare and medical facilities that require nuanced knowledge of Stark and Anti-Kickback compliance.
