Team Melanie Kramer

team Melanie kramer

I am a full time Real Estate Professional.  I work every day and treat real estate as a business, not a part time job, second career or hobby.  I work as a small intimate team with two other real estate professionals.  I have a back up plan!  Together as a Team we are able to assure that your needs will be handled by true professionals.

Angi Kennedy is our showing assistant and buyers agent specialist who will sometimes be showing you homes for sale as well. Matt Hill is also a buyers agent specialist on our team.   I also have a transaction coordinator that will work with me and you to get the documents for closing who is named Tracee Marchese.  We also have an administrative assistant and two part time marketing persons.

It is a fact of life that someone is going to get sick, someone is going to die, someone has to go out of town, etc., but with the team approach are able to assure you that your biggest investment is being handled professionally by full time trained Realtors and Administrative Staff.

I personally live in Richmond Hill, Georgia, with my husband Len Kramer and two boys ages 17 and 13 who are Trey and Brett.  We have an English Bulldog Rescue named Georgia who won our hearts having as well as two Manx cats, Bob and Mrs. J.

Over the years I have serviced many, many clients in the Savannah and Richmond Hill areas and built lasting professional relationships with my clients and other professionals in the real estate and other supporting industries.  Our goal and Keller Williams’ goal is to foster teamwork with all to better serve the needs of both the buyer and seller.

I return phone calls!  My schedule varies widely but I strive to return phone calls promptly if I miss your call.

I strive to meet the highest ethical and business standards!  I will always be honest with you and others.  I pride myself on giving 110% and working hard.  I cannot be an expert in every supporting field such as lending, home inspectors, etc, but I can get you to the experts in any given field!

In addition to my experience as a Realtor with Keller Williams Coastal Area Partners, I have over seventeen years of local Paralegal experience and three years of real property appraiser experience.  All done right here in your community.  Let me put my combined experience to work for you.  I can guide you through the purchasing or selling experience from start to finish including listing your home for sale, purchasing your new home, property appraisals, negotiations and document handling  (agreements, disclosures, addendums, etc).  I am happy to say that over the past years, most have been long time clients who have repeatedly called me over the years no matter what the task.

I promise to do my very best to guide you through what some clients describe as a very stressful process and the biggest purchase of their life.  Let me take the stress out of your next home buying or selling experience.   My commitment is to make you a client for Life!

Savannah Neighborhoods: from the Historic District to Tybee Island

The Savannah Richmond Hill area offer many residential communities with prices and amenities to fit your budget and lifestyle. Today we’ll explore Savannah Neighborhoods from the Historic District out to Tybee Island via Victory Drive.

Savannah Neighborhoods

The Historic District

The “Hostess City of the South”, established in 1733, is the heart of the Savannah area. For the most part the city has maintained its original plan and is a walkable community laid out around 22 park like squares shaded by live oaks and Spanish Moss.

The homes are stately, historic (the oldest buildings date back to the 1700’s) and offer a full range of architecture styles including an area of Victorian homes. Since the 1950s, there has been a focus to reclaim and restore homes within the historic district. Many of the interiors feature hand carved wooden accents and modern updates to spaces with historic significance.

Elegant condos and town homes seamlessly blend into the landscape of the historic district and offer the charm and convenience of living in town.


Thunderbolt is a small town that was once the shipping point for many of the local plantations making it a perfect spot for those looking for something close to water.

Incorporated in 1856, Thunderbolt offers both historic and new construction homes as well as condo communities.

Whitemarsh and Wilmington Islands

Located half way between the historic district and Tybee Island, these islands offer wonderful residential neighborhoods with the convenience of in town living. Most of the homes and condos are within a few minutes of shopping and doctor’s offices.

Here you can find new construction as well as homes dating back to the 1950’s.

Looking for water access? This area is rich with water ways that could take you just about anywhere you’d care to go. Homes on the marshes tend to offer floating docks that move in relation to the tides.

Tybee Island

Looking for a fun and funky beach house? Tybee Island is a relatively quiet beach community. The condos and homes that line the beach lean a little more toward rental properties, but less than a block from the beach you will find the locals. Most of the construction dates back to the 1920’s through the 1950’s, but you can still find new construction and active renovation projects.

What sounds like home to you? Please call or email me today for more information or questions about your relocation needs!
