- Melissa Lewis
Melissa Lewis is the Founder of ML Property Ventures, a company which provides investors properties that suit their interests best. For years, Melissa has led the company to acquire many projects and secure properties for several clients across the country. The nature of their venture is to meet clients and talk to them face-to-face so they can communicate properly. However, with the current landscape of the world, Melissa had to think of ways to go around the hurdle. And she found a way. She hopes that others could also learn from her approach.
Instead of meeting the clients in 2-hour intro meetings over a cup of coffee, Melissa shifted to 20-minute video calls. Within the video call, she presents her clients with research and calculations through photos and property portals. This way, the communication lines are still open while assuring the clients that they can secure the property they want.
“As a small business, it’s important to look for stream-lined ways of doing things and not just to follow what you’ve always done,” Melissa said.
