McNelis Group Properties has maintained a strong presence in the market since 2007, when McNelis launched her brokerage after more than 15 years in real estate sales and management.

As part of their transition, McNelis Group Properties’ agents gain access to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices’ Global Network Platform, a powerful tool suite focusing on lead generation, marketing support, social media, video production/distribution and more. Beyond technology, the brand provides national and international marketing support, professional education and the exclusive Luxury Collection for high-end, resort and waterfront listings.
“We’re certain that the quality support and resources we’ll receive from the network will help us be our very best,” McNelis said. “The future looks wonderfully bright from our perspective.”
