The Rose Team
Melissa Rose, Senior Mortgage Planner
Melissa Rose received her Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Texas A&M University in 2001. After a short stint in the financial services industry, she moved to the mortgage industry in June 2002 and never looked back! Although she is a Texas girl through and through, she moved to Charlotte, NC, in August of 2005 and is happy to call it home. After so many strong years in the mortgage industry and experience on both the broker and banking side, she holds customer service and true transparency to be her two most important goals during the mortgage process. With the ever-changing lending guidelines and the state of the housing market, she feels that through constant open communication, she can successfully walk you through one of the most important financial transactions of your life. The customer’s best interest is always at heart. This is why she has many loyal borrowers who have come back to her time and time again during her career in the industry and has constantly maintained a strong referral base.
