Melina Mariotti

Melina Mariotti has been helping homebuyers in North Carolina’s TRIAD area for over 20 years. She regards every day as an adventure, knowing that each client has a unique story.

Warm and welcoming, Melina is so comfortable in her role as senior mortgage banker that she makes buying a home seem easy from the moment you meet her. She says, “I know how scary it is to buy a house. I just want my clients to be calm and carry on. They’re in good hands.”

A long-time resident of the TRIAD area, Melina recently joined Atlantic Bay to serve clients in Greensboro, Summerfield, and Oak Ridge. She uses her wealth of knowledge and experience to the advantage of her clients. She says, “Getting a mortgage is such a huge event. There’s so much information out there, good and bad.

Communicating with her clients and keeping them informed are high priorities for Melina. She says, “I want people to feel like I’m looking at their loan every day. I answer the phone when they call and am available 24-7. A lot of my customers become my friends and I enjoy that aspect of the business a lot.”
