Mel’s passion is real estate deals and development and he has been doing it since he was in high school. Mel owns golf courses in the Carolinas (World Tour Golf Links, Myrtle Beach, SC and The Club at Longview, Charlotte, NC) and he has developed and sold land in Charlotte and South Carolina to many homebuilders including Toll Brothers and Standard Pacific most recently.
Mel’s secret to his success is relying on common sense. “I’d rather have a thimble full of common sense than a truck load of book sense” – one of his grandfather’s favorite quotes has been his way of navigating the real estate development business. Raised in an environment where hard work meant getting the job done no matter how long it took and where Sundays were for the Lord, he learned the basics that have kept him on track.
