Melissa Evans Talley, daughter of a prominent local real estate attorney, was exposed to Vero Beach real estate from a young age. Superbly mentored by her aunt, iconic Vero Beach Broker, Kay Brown, Melissa learned results-driven marketing and artful negotiation for luxury real estate. The superb business acumen she displays, her highly developed ability to multitask, the discreet concierge service she employs … are all the direct results of her 20+ years as a specialized physical therapist, first at Duke University and then in her own long-standing business. As a result, she remains highly attuned to the needs of her clients and highly skilled at always guiding them toward their best results.

Educated at the University of Florida, Melissa has held her real estate license since 2005. Now, working once again with Kay Brown, Melissa joins Brown Harris and Webb as an accomplished addition to the small team ranked second in Florida by RealTrends/The Wall Street Journal. Her extensive knowledge of the local market and far-reaching connections make her the ideal choice for effective representation with your million-dollar-plus purchase or sale.

An active member of her community, committed to always giving back, Melissa has been an active member of the Community Church, co-chaired philanthropic events for the Environmental Learning Center and Riverside Children’s Festival of Trees, and played an active role in the Junior League and on the Board of the Indian River Soccer Association.



“It's important to note that you cannot put a price on the peace of mind that comes from working with people that you can trust. Melissa's and Eddie's dedication and expertise was impressive. Her communication was immediate and she was always available. She was detailed, organized and just plain fun. Eddie was invaluable when it came to clients asking about possible structural changes and/or additions. Our dogs Otis and Lily loved being looked after during a few showings!

“Melissa is full of energy, enthusiasm and knowledge and on the ball. She is willing to meet the customer any time of day or night to show the property. She goes out of the way to accommodate the buyer and the seller. She and Kay were able to sell my apartment in a matter of a few months for my desired price, which was the highest sale price ever in the entire complex. I can highly recommend her with great confidence to any buyer or seller. She will get the job done for you. I am well pleased!

“We are so fortunate to have met Mellissa when we began our search for a winter home. After over one year of searching, facetime showings, offers, and nearly giving up, Melissa helped us to find our happy place in Vero Beach. She is consistently patient, honest, and sincere. Melissa skillfully helpedus navigate the very challenging market, and she never gave up. Most of all, it was clear that she always had our best interest in mind and truly wanted to welcome us to the beautiful area that is so dear to her. Not only did we gain an experienced and knowledgeable agent, but we also gained a friend. Thank you, Melissa! See Less
