“My buyers and sellers are more important to me than making the deal. I always have their best interests at heart” -Melissa Edidin
With 13 years experience and over $120 million in sales, I am recognized among Chicago’s top producers by the Chicago Association of Realtors.
I pride myself on being result driven, straight forward, and loyal. The real estate process is about YOU and I strive to meet your expectations throughout the transaction and beyond. Buyer or seller, you won’t be disappointed.
In my many years of experience I have obtained an in-depth understanding of the Chicago Real Estate market, its growth potential and the investment opportunities throughout. It is important to balance market perceptions, market analysis and personal opinions to bring parties together into a successful transaction. I achieve this through communication, organization and a strategic approach; resulting in a client base that allows me to work mainly by referral.
I was born and raised in Lincoln Park when Lincoln Park wasn’t “Lincoln Park” (aka the 70’s) and I am a current resident of East Village. Growing up in downtown Chicago has given me an insiders appreciation for this city, and I have enjoyed seeing its many neighborhoods change and evolve.
I love to travel. My favorite trips include: New Zealand, Peru (hiked to Machu Picchu), Japan, and Nicaragua. Before beginning my career in real estate, I worked in international trade and resided in Mexico City for 4 years. I speak Spanish.
Let’s have a conversation about your real estate needs.Regardless of your timing, give me a call.

Clients are saying:
"Working with Melissa made a stressful experience much easier. She treated us like family, she was honest and straighforward, and she really knows what she is talking about. It only took her a couple of weeks to find us a buyer who wanted to close in 3 weeks and pay cash!I would never want to work with anyone else. Melissa is really the best."
"Melissa is the best!!!!"
"Working With Melissa was fabulous. She is extremely knowledgeable of the city, and was well advised for my area. She was our fourth or fifth realtor in three years, and she accomplished the goal - sold in the first week. She worked with me closely to get the unit ready. She had connections of items for updates as needed, all very professional. Melissa was extremely sharp at negotiations, a couple small things occurred, and she communicated to the buyers in a manner of calmness and ease to solve. If you have the chance, work with Melissa! You wont go wrong!"
"I have loved working with Melissa on buying my new home. She was easily accessible for showings, really timely with all communication, and challenged me (in the best way) during the buying process. I closed on my new home this past Tuesday. Many thanks to Melissa and her team for making this such a smooth process!"
