MEET THE TEAM
Melanie Bisson, Founder | Realtor®
We're not sure how she does it but Melanie accomplishes more in one day than most people do in a week. A perfect example of her superpower: August 2015 her daughter arrived earlier than expected and Melanie still made sure her 8 scheduled closings for the week went off without a hitch!
Melanie was born and raised in New Hampshire, and pursued her love of animals as a veterinary technician for the first chapter in her professional life. Five years ago she became a licensed real estate agent and during that time, she’s helped New Englanders buy and sell over 140 homes. While result-oriented, Melanie balances her ambition with her warm and humble personality.
Melanie and her husband, Rock, (owner of Rockwell Homes) are in the process of building their own home in North Berwick, Maine. Along with their daughter Lily, the family enjoys traveling, hiking, snow-shoeing and swimming.
Laura Cote, Lead Buyer Specialist & Realtor®
Every dream team needs at least one member crazy for all things Disney – and our beloved Laura is just that (plus a whole lot more)!
Laura is a native of Durham, New Hampshire who went on to study at Wheelock College in Boston and ultimately graduated from the University of New Hampshire. With a degree in both Psychology and Justice Studies, Laura spent the first six years of her career at NH’s Dept of Health and Human Services, leaving to assist her husband to open IKB Automotive, a family-run garage in Madbury, NH. Once the business was up and running, Laura was ready for her next challenge; real estate. She loves meeting new people just as much as helping them navigate smoothly to the closing table.
In addition to making sure she understands clients’ needs, Laura is sure to keep you laughing through every step of the process. With three kids, two dogs and passion for shoes few people understand, multi-tasking is in her DNA.
Jordyne Clough, Realtor®
As a teacher, Jordyne often reminds her third graders, 'We are not successful just because we are smart; we are successful because we also work hard.' This is also true in real estate. It's great to work with an agent who demonstrates market expertise; it's even better when you're partnered with someone like Jordyne who works tirelessly on your behalf.
A seacoast native, Jordyne is still local to the area. She earned her B.S. in Psychology at UNH in Durham and has deep roots in the community. If you're new to the area, she's happy to give you a crash course in everything from traffic patterns to local politics. Selling? She'll factor in the nuances of your property's value which might be overlooked by another agent. (Think: desirability of your school district, proximity to amenities, scarcity of other homes for sale in your neighborhood). Sideline to being great at her job, she's instantly likeable. (Just ask the 22 eight-year-olds in her classroom!) Compassionate and patient, Jordyne will win you over with her quick wit and ability to infer what you need most during your journey to the closing table.
April Shaw, Digital Marketing Director
Although April would never describe herself as a guru, her team members at Bisson Realty Partners claim otherwise.
April grew up in Maine and went on to study Psychology at the University of Massachusetts Boston. In 2010, she became a licensed real estate agent in New Hampshire before deciding to pursue a career in marketing. Before returning to real estate in 2016, she managed online campaigns for celebrities like Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama and drive-to-retail campaigns for corporate giants like Target and Wal-Mart.
April helps the team with innovative strategies to ensure optimum satisfaction for clients. When she’s not researching the latest technology trends, you can find her at her son's elementary soccer/basketball/baseball games in Dover. Just be forewarned: she's been known to unwittingly root for the opposing team.
