Realtor Associate

Even after 40 years in the Miami real estate market, Melody Torrens is still breaking new ground as one of the city’s most experienced real estate professionals. She currently serves as an appointed member of the City of Miami Planning, Zoning, and Appeals board; and is also the Executive Vice President and President elect of Beth David Congregation, Miami’s oldest Jewish Synagogue. And yet, Melody will be the first to tell you that each and every sale she’s ever been responsible for has made an impression on her. “Just this past year, I sold two homes belonging to the estate of the first woman to ever race boats offshore in the 1950s,” Melody recalls. “One was a coral rock house in Midtown, surrounded by high-rises and the other a sprawling home on the shores of the Miami River.
After so many years in this business I’ve sold everything from an Old Spanish home in West Palm Beach to a conch house in the Keys and everything in between.” Lately however, Melody says the majority of her clients are interested in Coconut Grove, Shenandoah, and the Miami River – which she also calls home.

“I grew up on Miami Beach, but have lived on the Miami River since 1974,” she shares. “The first few years, I lived on a floating home, but in 1979 I bought the home I still have today – and I’ve enjoyed the view as I see the rest of the world now discovering ‘my’ river.”

Throughout her career, Melody has made a name for herself by always being educated about the market, dependable, and organized. Her clients will tell you she’s also one of the most knowledgeable, insightful, and honest agents working in the business today. For Melody, however, it’s simply an extension of who she is. “Bottom line… I’m a people person,” she says. “I love bringing people together in a transaction. I love the challenge of proving my value by getting results for a seller. And I love sharing in the happiness and excitement buyers have when they find the house. It’s why I’ve been able to succeed in this career for so long and never stop learning about the latest tools and technologies to stay at the cutting edge of the industry.”

Over the years, Melody has received numerous awards for community service and for real estate sales production, but it is her two children who are her proudest achievements. Her daughter, Sarah is a land use attorney in New York; and her son, Benjamin is a historian at History Miami museum. In addition to spending time with her family, Melody also enjoys volunteering and supporting community service and going out on her sailboat.

Melody is fluent in English.
