Selling Homes, Fulfilling Dreams
Hi, I’m Bernadette Melton. I was born and raised in Indiana, and it really is true, I got here as soon as I could! I first visited Colorado in high school and knew this was where I wanted to live - the mountains, the outdoors, the sunshine - all of it!
I graduated from Purdue University in 2004 with degrees in animal science and veterinary medicine and relocated to Colorado with my husband right after our wedding. I worked in Denver for 3 years as a small animal Veterinarian until we had our first son, and then chose to stay home to raise him and our next two children.
My family lived in northeastern Westminster for 9 years and moved to Erie in 2013. I have three children - Ethan loves robotics, Isaac enjoys playing video games, and Chloe competes in gymnastics. We love living in Colorado - hiking, skiing, camping, fishing - though I “fish” by sitting on the bank reading a book!
I’ve been working in real estate since 2016. I love helping sellers close the door on one chapter of their lives as they (literally) open the door on the next one. And I love helping find the right home for homebuyers, that “this is it!” look is priceless. Real estate is challenging, always different, and provides a unique opportunity to share in the lives of the people I work with.
People have asked me if I miss being a Vet, and the answer is not really. Once I left practicing medicine, I discovered it wasn't the animals that I missed, it was the people - both the people I worked with and the clients I served. As a former small animal Veterinarian, I worked with my clients to understand complicated medical conditions, evaluate their options, and make choices that worked for their situations. While I'm no longer practicing medicine, I find the same skills that I used then carry over to real estate - helping clients understand complicated contracts, evaluate the market and their options, and then make choices that work for their situations. Buying and selling a home can be a very emotional process, just like working with sick animals, and I'm glad I’ve had the opportunity to walk with families through both.
My passion is to serve my community and lead with integrity. I want to be a valuable guide and trusted advisor on my client’s real estate journey. I love to connect families with the resources they need, from mortgage lenders to handymen. Whether it’s finding a new home to meet their needs, or finding the right person to make their existing home work better for them, I’m happy to help however I can!

“ Bernadette took the stress out of buying our first "fixer upper". She had our best interest at heart and made sure we understood what we were signing up for. She was professional, efficient, and always ahead of the game.

She went out of her way to make our experience as seamless as possible and we can't wait to work with her again for future purchases! ”

She remained faithful and positive even we were frustrated. We really appreciate her tenacity, attention to details, and caring nature. ”
--- Kath Anne W.
“ I would recommend Bernadette Melton as a worthy real estate agent for several reasons. If one has questions regarding the value of one's house, she will be honest with her answer. She will not give a figure that sounds too good to be true just to get a listing. As one's agent she will keep you informed regarding the progress of the sale or purchase of your home. Her priority is to do the very best job possible for her client. ”

From the day we sat down to discuss our moving plans to the day we closed, she managed each detail (big and small) with amazing attention to detail and thoughtfulness, even surpassing expectations of a typical agent for odd one-off issues.

--- Jim W.
“ Bernadette was just as wonderful and professional in the search for, and purchase of, our new home as she was in the sale of my townhome. We had very specific needs, and she never gave up on us as we searched for the perfect home. She handled details both large, and small, answered a million questions, arranged for cleaners, and kept our spirits up when we doubted we would ever succeed in finding our perfect home. Choosing Bernadette as our realtor was the wisest decision we made in this entire process. We couldn't have done it without her! ”
--- Leah L.

I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a highly qualified professional in the field of real estate! ”
