Celli Mellert - REALTOR®
My career in real estate started in 2013 after I was fortunate enough to stay at home and raise our two beautiful, smart and ambitious daughters. My husband and I moved to the Hickory area in 2005. Our businesses have taken us to many different parts of our great country but I have to say, fortunately, Hickory is the place I call home.
I worked as a young woman in retail management after high school for several years only to realize that I wanted more for myself in a career. At the age of 22, I decided to earn my Bachelor of Science Degree from Indiana University. I was a single woman that worked full time, as well as, attended college full time those four and a half years. It was tough, but I persevered to attain my goals. After earning my degree, I worked in Advertising Sales for several years, helped my husband start and contribute to the success of our Publishing companies.
During my 13 years of raising our girls in the Hickory area, I became deeply rooted to our community by heading up our elementary school PTO, running five committee's, volunteering weekly for 10 years and even eventually becoming a substitute teacher for the school system. Those years were priceless for me and my family.
I am dedicated now to helping others in finding their dream home and know what a monumental step it is in an individual or family's life. I will use every bit of education learned and my life experiences to help make that step as easy and smooth as possible. I look forward to meeting you as my next client and my friend!
