I consider myself a Goldsboro native though I was born in Sumter, South Carolina and raised all over the country!  Growing up, my father was active duty Air Force and we moved houses just about every 3 to 5 years. But we settled in Goldsboro in the mid 1970's and finally began to call this place our home and this is where I've lived most of my life and where we raised our children.  I graduated from Eastern Wayne High School and later worked toward a Marketing Degree at Wayne Community College. A little later in life, I met and married an Air Force fighter pilot, Bruce Gates, and continued to travel the world with him and our two beautiful children.  He retired from active duty in 2004 while stationed here at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base and life since then has been nothing short of incredible!

I have always been involved in multiple extra-curricular activities through my church and school. When I'm not volunteering with various youth groups and organzations, there's nothing I like better than spending time with my family, traveling in our 5th wheel camper, enjoying one of North Carolina's many fishing piers or ocean surf while waiting for the big one to bite!

I love introducing newcomers to this wonderful area that I call home so I hope you'll give me a call, send me an email or text when I can be of service to you for your real estate needs.

True professional, and completely ingrained in the community. Melanie provides expert advice, and is willing to bear the workload to assure your home buying experience as enjoyable as possible. She’s highly recommended by us!

06/02/2017 - Bernard Nichols

I bought my first house through Melanie 9 years ago and she has been so helpful and patient as first time home buyers. She answered all our questions, put us at ease and made the process very easy to understand. Fast forward 9 years later send she is again helping us but this time selling the house. The selling process was made much more understandable through Melanie's involvement in everything from beginning to end. Highly recommend using her services.

04/28/2017 - mike levan9

Melanie had helped me with the purchase of 2 homes. She is very knowledgeable of this area, contractors, banks, anyone needed to obtain a home. Perhaps most remarkable is her availability long after the sale has been completed.

10/31/2016 - Jordan Marchese

Melanie is an amazing real estate agent. She helped me sell my mothers house after her passing as part of closing the estate sale. She made the process extremely simple and easy for me, especially since I live out of state. There were numerous times she went out of her way to ensure that we sold the house, regardless of the hardships we endured. At one point, there was a lien taken out on the house due some lawyer issues many years ago. Melanie work overtime to make sure the lien could be removed within the time period required to sell the house. I cannot recommend a better real estate agent in the area.

10/08/2016 - alexis mcgarrity

My husband and I were first time home buyers and new to the area. Melanie, was very knowledgeable and explained everything to us in detail. Whenever we had questions she was always there and got back to us quickly. She was professional and made the whole process less stressful! I would highly recommend Melanie Gates.

02/14/2015 - mapson9

This is the second house that Melanie has helped me purchase. Melanie is quite knowledgeable of the local market and the purchasing process. She always knows where to the find answers and is quick to respond. Above her knowledge and skills is her genuine interest in what best fits my needs. I can trust her to have my interests in mind and will use her whenever I am looking to purchase or to sell.

I would like to add to the above comments as it has been 6 months since we have closed and settled in. On a few occasions I have contacted Melanie regarding various topics related to the house. She continues to promptly respond as she did prior to this purchase, answering my every question. Thanks Melanie.

01/23/2015 - tdiprofio

Melanie was my God send! Buying a home can wreck havoc on your nerves, yet Melanie took the time to listen to my needs, wants, in addition, she offered helpful suggestions that I other wise would not have thought of during this stressful time. She was upfront, honest and went out of her way to be readily available for my every need. I can't count how many homes she took me too, a few she knew I wouldn't want, yet she took the time to allow me to make the ultimate decision, even though it was a waste of her time. You will be grateful and fortunate to have Melanie on your side!

10/20/2014 - wdrwomanp

Melanie did a great job on both our purchase of our new home and the sale of our old home. She was able to expertly negotiate for us and was able to make us deals that I thought were impossible. I thought we would be losing money on our old home but we ended up making a profit. All in all a wonderful time spent shopping and we are extremely happy in our new home!!

09/28/2014 - user5248600

Our house hunt started months before we ever viewed a house. During that time she was very thorough in answering all our questions and provided valuable insight into many things we hadn't even thought of. Once we started viewing she was always honest and pointed out issues she knew were important to us and guided us through the whole process.

09/03/2014 - user54857494

Melanie manages a property that we own in NC. She has made this a worry free experience for my husband and me as we have been overseas and unable to watch over the house on our own. She is a fantastic real estate professional!

08/22/2014 - kevinwinford

Melanie is a great realtor and she is very professional in all aspects of her job. She is very honest with her clients; she will not tell you what you want to hear but what you need to hear and guide you thru the real estate process with patience. She will work tirelessly for you to sell or locate property. In my situation; we wanted to sell our house before we moved; but at the time houses weren’t moving due to the economy; so we decided to rent it out. Melanie has been managing our property for two years and has done an exceptional job representing us. When we do decide to sell; she is our #1 choice for a realtor.

08/22/2014 - theronmattice

Melanie is a ray of sunshine for this state of Michigan transplant. She has reputable and reliable real estate expertise as well as life knowledge to assist in our needs and wants in procuring our home. I would easily recommend her to any serious purchaser.


08/19/2014 - regina taylor1

I was referred to Melanie via a friend when I was stationed in Korea, we kept in touch up until I arrived in the area. Once there she helped me every step of the way and I have always valued her opinions and honest inputs when making Real Estate decisions.

Highly recommend Melanie's services in finding a property that suits you!

08/18/2014 - apolashek

Melanie is very knowledgeable about the area and local real estate, and this experience was very helpful to us in locating the home we purchased. In fact, she showed a home that wasn't on our list that we liked so much that it ended up being the one we bought!

08/18/2014 - ashley441

Melanie is one of the most forthcoming and respectful realtors I personally have ever dealt with when buy and selling homes. She is very punctual and organized. Melanie is very aggressive when negotiating deals. She wants her clients to walk away feeling satisfied. I have had the privilege of conducting several business transaction with Mrs. Gates and I can truthfully say not one of those transactions was every less than perfect. If you're looking for a realtor to put nothing but 110% forward , she's the realtor your seeking.

08/18/2014 - zuser20140707175040518

Melanie is the best realtor I have ever worked with and she will be my realtor from now on..She answered every question I had fully and carried me through the buying process every step.

08/18/2014 - annetterooney

When I call her she returned my call immediately. She made me feel very good about selling my house . She kept in contact with me often with up dates.I would definitely contact her again in future for selling or just advise about buying . Very impressed with her as a person and agent.

08/18/2014 - gibbsdg

Melanie helped us put together a list of homes to look at and worked around our schedule to tour them. This was very helpful because we lived out of the state at the time. The negotiation and purchase process went quickly and without surprises. When it came time to sell our existing home in Oregon, she contacted a local realtor that we were very happy with. That process was very smooth.

08/18/2014 - cpittman29

I am a home inspector that works with Melanie.
It is my opinion that she is a great realor.
She attends all home inspections and encourages the buyer to also attend.
It looks like she really looks after the needs of the buyer in a real estate purchase.

Presently, my wife and I have the wonderful opportunity to have Mrs. Gates as our real estate agent. I retired from the US Military with 30 years of honorable service on August 31, 2013. Being a disabled Veteran with multiple disabilities, Ms. Gates has been phenomenal in helping and assisting us in selling our home.
USAA which is a wonderful organization that helps Military members and their Families listed here as a contact person for us to connect with in our decisions. Not only did Mrs. Gates respond in a timely manner, she treated us with a high level of professionalism and a genuine concern in helping us locate multiple properties. It's very rare to meet someone like Mrs. Gates who really cares about people and their well-being. I refer to her as an Angel here on earth.
Mrs. Gates has shown us properties that are within our budget and has educated us on real estate matters that I never knew existed. I wish that she could give training seminars to individuals who are in the process of buying and selling their homes. I would recommend her to my Family members, Military and Civilian, and dearest friends because she is a honest, caring, and great person and individual to know.
If I know anyone that is interested in real estate information or buying and selling a home, I will definitely recommend Mrs. Gates and no one else. She has been a blessing to my wife and I and I will definitely let USAA know just how well we are being treated under the care and guidance of Mrs. Gates.

Respectfully submitted,

William & Michelle Lowry

Professional and knowledgeable. First home bought and made the process flow easily. Military background helped understand what a military member was looking for and things that we needed. Also helped us rent the property after we had to move again due to military orders.

08/17/2014 - Mark Radford

Melanie proved to be very professional and offered great and candid advice during the selling process. I highly recommend her as an agent to anyone buying or selling a home.

08/17/2014 - osu1babe

Melanie was very knowledgeable realtor. She was my realtor when I bought my home and it was a no brainer when it came time to sell my home 13 years later. I have recommended Melanie to many of my friends and co-workers over the years and all have stated the same as me. You can trust her in finding and selling your home. She keeps it honest and real.

08/12/2014 - sfp1031

Melanie masterfully researched houses in our old neighborhood and listed our house for sale well above what we thought we could get for it. She also skillfully negotiated with the buyers agent and saved us thousands of dollars. If we ever sell or buy another house, she will be our agent without a doubt.
