Melissa Rahe - Intracoastal Realty

About Melissa


A North Carolina native, Melissa grew up in Fuquay-Varina and planted roots in Wilmington upon graduating from UNC-W where she earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Marketing.

Melissa’s professional career includes working in the mortgage banking industry, in telecommunication sales and also in the non-profit sector, employed by the American Red Cross as Assistant Director of Blood Services. After marrying her husband, Dan, and the birth of her 2 sons, Melissa took on the title of domestic engineer. She stayed active with the PTA, volunteered as room mom and helped with the Child Advocacy and Parenting Place Gala for many years. Being a present figure in her children’s lives was her priority.

Prior to joining Intracoastal Realty in late 2018, Melissa had ample experience applying real estate practices to her personal life. She and her husband sold two personal residencies and also designed and self-contracted two homes. Overseeing the construction of their homes from the ground up garnered her interest in pursuing a career in Real Estate.

 Melissa is an avid lover of tennis and you can find her playing in a friendly round robin or competing in a USTA match whenever she has the chance. If she isn’t hitting the courts, she’s on the water with her family spending a lazy afternoon at Mason’s Inlet, fishing in Page’s Creek or watching her sons surf at Masonboro Island.

 Melissa’s attention to detail and her background in marketing, sales and new home design and construction as well as her extensive knowledge of the Wilmington area make her an asset to her clients.
