Get to know Melissa Stevenson

As a native of the Peoria area, I am familiar with surrounding communities including Tazewell and Woodford counties.  I obtained my real estate license in 2002 and have worked successfully with buyers and sellers of residential, income, rural and acreage properties.  I thoroughly enjoy working with first-time buyers and know how very important it is for them to have someone to guide and support them through the buying process.  I also enjoy working with sellers and understand how overwhelming selling a house can be, especially if you are still living in it.  I work to help my sellers stage and prepare their home for listing and customize a marketing plan specifically for their home.  I have built a solid foundation by skillfully representing my client's best interests and I do everything I can to make the selling process less stressful, resulting in a positive experience while achieving the hightest sale price.


As a volunteer with various non-profit organizations and a member of multiple real estate professional networks, I am very active in the community.  I have a personal interest in older/historic properties.  I live in Peoria with my husband, our two sons, and our two dogs.  I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, watching my boys participate in their activities, and exercising.


Real estate was a change of career for me and I can honestly say it was a great decision because I love this job!  My persistent efforts to build my business have resulted in multi-million dollar sales for many years and a ranking in the top 20% of more than 700 agents in the Peoria area.


I go above and beyond to provide the best customer service to my clients.  I will not just tell you what you want to hear, but rather will give you my best professional advice, based on my knowledge, experience, and information of the local market conditions.  I believe being straightforward and honest is the most beneficial way to advise, assist and support my clients.


For attentive, personalized service with proven results, CALL ME.  


I love helping others and look forward to the opportunity to work with you.
