01. MELANIE EVERETT
FOUNDER & BROKER
I launched Melanie Stone Chicago at Coldwell Banker, & in just over four years, MSC has grown more than I could have ever imagined. I’m indescribably thankful for the people (buyers, sellers, friends, family & my new husband, Mr. Andrew Everett!) who have been a part of the story.
2019 marks the start of something new. I never thought I’d say goodbye to MSC or to Coldwell Banker, & I never thought I’d start my own real estate firm. But now, it’s official:
Welcome to Melanie Everett & Company, Chicago’s newest independent real estate firm.
In 2017, I was named to Realtor Magazine’s national “30 Under 30” list. I became a member of Coldwell Banker’s President’s Club in 2018, International Diamond Society in 2016, and in 2015, I received my company’s “Rookie of the Year” award for the city region. Along the way, I served on the board of directors for the Women’s Council of Realtors, as well as several committees for the Chicago Association of Realtors. I currently rank in the top 1% of agents in the city.
I created So You Want to Buy a Condo, a seminar for first-time buyers, in late 2015. Since then, I’ve taught this class to thousands of young professionals at places like WeWork, Uber, Deloitte, Grubhub and Morningstar.
As for my own home, I live in a vintage walk-up in Lincoln Park with my husband, Andrew. When I need a break from the city, I drive to Hinsdale to visit my family. It is the sweetest escape.
If I’m not working, I’m probably writing. To get a glimpse into my life and career, visit my blog. That is the very best way to learn more about me.
