RE/MAX Estate Properties Welcomes Melanie Archer as General Counsel
Melanie Archer, General Counsel RE/MAX Estate Properties
RE/MAX Estate Properties is proud to welcome Melanie Archer as the company’s General Counsel. She is a valuable asset and we are thrilled to have Melanie lead our in-house legal team! Melanie has a deep knowledge of real estate and business law with a very practical approach. She assists our agents with one-on-one support, risk management, round table legal discussions, and agent education. She provides insight into the ever-changing real estate industry, while ensuring our agents are expertly trained on all new laws and policy changes.
Melanie practiced real estate and business litigation at Cox, Castle & Nicholson and later at Spierer, Woodward, Corbalis & Goldberg prior to joining RE/MAX Estate Properties. While there, among other things, she gained extensive experience in helping buyers, sellers, and their agents negotiate the difficulties that can sometimes arise when purchasing property. She previously worked with her husband at Archer Building Group, Inc. where she acquired extensive knowledge of the construction industry. She received her BA from USC and her JD from UCLA School of Law. She is also a real estate investor and owns/operates apartment buildings in Southern California.
Melanie is a South Bay native with three adorable, young boys. She spends her weekends watching little league games and trying to find time for tennis and yoga (good luck!). With a dynamic intelligence, Melanie can speak to agents about anything from residential and commercial sales to raising three boys. She is poised and has a calm demeanor. She’s helping RE/MAX Estate Properties soar to new heights by giving us a General Counsel with tremendous business comprehension and a willingness to amplify RE/MAX Estate Properties and our agents as a whole.
