Melanie Haas was drawn to architecture at an early age, but ultimately became a software engineer instead of a building designer. Initially, she spent over 15 years as an entrepreneur, running her own digital agency. What followed led to leadership roles at a prestigious Kansas City ad agency and several well-known software/tech giants and startups. For five years she helmed the popular group, KC Geek Night and was a founding board member of Kansas City Women in Technology. She also volunteers her time and expertise in KC's rising entrepreneurial community, even co-founding the real estate startup, Keyzio, along the way. Though her experience is spread from software development to lean startup principals and coaching, Melanie's underlying motivation is simple: all companies can be better, stronger, smarter and all companies deserve the opportunity to grow and flourish.
In 2019, Melanie joined Select Sites full-time with the same mission in mind - helping both Select Sites and our clients flourish even more! As part of that process, she is leading the effort to create robust marketing solutions for our clients. Whether you are a property owner with space to lease or sell or a business owner looking to grow, her work is part of our site selection research, marketing of properties, and reporting for clients.
We also look forward to adding Melanie to our roster as a licensed commercial broker later this year, which will help us serve even more awesome clients in the Kansas City metro. She is a seasoned real estate investor with both commercial and residential properties. On the weekends you're likely to find her with a prybar or paintbrush in hand, working on her own properties. She's not afraid of getting dirty and loves fixing broken things. She lives in Overland Park with her husband and is raising two daughters who hate pink, love learning, and hope to one day build their own development of tiny houses for people who need them most.
