About Me

My buyers and sellers are more important to me than making the deal. I always have their best interests at heart -Melissa Edidin

With 18 years experience and over $150 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.


Testimonial: Melissa Edidin's knowledge and service was outstanding -- highly professional. She provided accurate comps so we could accurately price our home, and when we purchased, she provided comps to educate us as to an appropriate offer followed by negotiation. Excellent understanding regarding the psychology of buying and selling real estate." M.A.



Clients are saying:

"Melissa gave exactly what I needed as a remote seller of a 2BR 2BA luxury high rise but I would also recommend her if you are looking to buy or sell a single family home, town home, or other property in the city. She is impressive in her depth of knowledge about current comps and related "Chicago market" aesthetics, hot/cold attitudes and behaviors - and that is saying a lot as things move very fast from unfavorable, to favorable, to buyers market, to sellers, etc. Wildly smart, responsive, and straightforward person with superior industry contacts. I did not know her before needing to list, but she was referred by a friend and I'm grateful! Closing went super smoothly."
