Melia Hord and the MELIA Realty Group of Kentucky embrace the future as PLACE partners. Learn more about their meteoric rise and how PLACE will help keep them on their upward trajectory.
Lexington, KY; February 2022 — PLACE, the real estate industry’s only all-inclusive platform that combines technology, business services, and growth and profitability tools for top producers, announced today that The MELIA Realty Group led by Melia Hord is now powered by PLACE.
Hord recognizes opportunity when she sees it. In her previous career as a successful corporate CPA, the company she worked for struggled to find a reliable vendor for client gifts. “I’m always the problem solver,” explained Hord. “I’m always looking ahead to identify the next thing coming before it happens.” So, she created her own gift basket company and soon transitioned her side venture into a successful, full-time business.
Her gift basket company thrived through relationship marketing, and Hord worked with an impressive client list of agents, commercial brokers, and banks. “It’s not about the dollar,” said Hord. “It’s about creating the relationship. That’s every business’ greatest asset.” After she successfully brokered the sale of her business, she took that same philosophy (and her database) into real estate.
