“Housing should not be limited to the wealthy,” Melissa Meza believes. Melissa, currently Director of Acquisitions and Dispositions at GG Homes I Buy SD, is now on a personal mission to facilitate social and green impacts in her immediate community. As a single mother who has had nothing while raising a daughter, Melissa knows what it’s like to have all odds against you.

She joins us in this episode to talk about her journey, how she lost everything, then got back up from nothing with only her strong sense of self-belief and her child as her driving forces. Melissa is the epitome of “Never Give Up” and a champion for sustainable housing. She calls herself the Real Estate Wizard, but you will learn from her that achieving success is no magic, but a product of hard work, determination, and love.
