Melissa Dehncke McGill Photo

Though originally from New Jersey, Melissa has spent virtually all her adult life in the most fantastic borough in the world, Brooklyn.

For the last 9 years of her professional career, Melissa has been working for the industry's favorite, The Real Deal magazine -- she's had the opportunity to meet with some of the NYC's most experienced & successful brokers first hand, and has picked each of their brains respectively!

Melissa first became fascinated with real estate through her personal activities and experiences as a still-image photographer, while attending college at Pratt Institute in Clinton Hill, at the onset of her career.

Melissa has seen, through first-hand experience, that when it comes to finding the right apartment - competence, professionalism, and focus to a client's need are crucial to making the deal "happen."

Brooklyn is where Melissa has always wanted to be. She's lived in Clinton Hill, Carroll Gardens and for the past 23 years, Park Slope.

Brooklyn's vitality, variety, and unique history truly give Brooklyn its innate appeal, and Melissa looks forward to sharing her passion for the borough with you!

Give Melissa a call today, she looks forward to working with you soon.

I worked with Melissa when renting my first Brooklyn apartment three years ago. After a dreadful experience with another local agent, my husband and I contacted her again, this time to help us find a home to buy. All in all, working with Melissa and her team has been a wonderful experience, and we look forward to working with them exclusively on future rentals of our garden apartment.

Melissa is an amazing agent. She never once left me in the dark, and made my entire rental experience very easy. Melissa, and her manager over at Ideal Properties, Michael, followed through on everything they promised (including a postponement in lease signing, and assuring landlord would have the kitchen re-painted a different color despite originally resisting my request). Melissa kept me informed the whole way through, and generally helped me be happy with my new apartment in park slope. thanks for everything!

Melissa is probably the best agent you can ask for. She is genuine, professional, and extremely hard working. She instantly replied to all of our queries and found tons of listings that match our preferences. She even was willing to stay out late on the weekends and show a few extra apartments to make sure we were satisfied. She is really great to work with if you are looking for around the Park Slope area. I definitely recommend her to everyone!

Melissa Dehncke McGill was an honest, thoughtful agent. She was more than responsive to our needs and was prompt in communicating with my husband and I. She wouldn't give up even when we were being picky!

Melissa McGill was a wonderful agent and a breath of fresh air in the NYC rental game. Melissa worked long and hard for my partner and I to get the right apartment for us. She was thoughtful and kind and completely refreshing to work with after weeks of apartment hunting and random agents. She generously drove us to appointments and gave us lots of great advice about living in NYC (we're new transplants). She was considerate of what would work for my partner and I, our parameters and schedules. I would recommend her and Ideal Properties to anyone moving to NYC interested in Brooklyn. Go with Melissa! She's fantastic!!
