Melissa Welsted

HECM Vice President


Melissa Welsted left the beaches of Florida to attend Liberty University in Virginia where she then stayed and made Virginia Beach her home. With more than 13 years of real estate and mortgage lending experience, Melissa has worked almost exclusively helping seniors use home ownership to increase financial stability. Melissa opens doors for her clients by working with financial planners, Realtors, bankers and other senior advocates.

Whether refinancing an existing mortgage or purchasing a new home to fit lifestyle needs, Melissa ensures that every one of her customers fully understands the reverse mortgage process and that their goals are achieved. Melissa knows and understands that each of her clients are different, and works hard to help identify their immediate and long term financial goals. She takes great pride in strong customer service with everyone she works with to ensure a smooth transaction and 100% customer satisfaction!

When she is not working, you will mostly find her with family and friends. Her family consists of her husband, Bill, three adult children and 5 grandchildren. Melissa and Bill enjoy traveling overseas twice a year, but love Hampton Roads and are proud to call it home.
