Mellani Reese joined Yellowstone Business Acquisitions to help make your dreams come true! Whether you are buying or selling, Mellani can help you discover your perfect match!
As a member of the International Business Brokers Association, Mellani is currently enrolled in IBBA University working towards her CBI accreditation. Aside from this formal education, she brings with her an acute ability to listen. She credits this skill to her recent work in the addiction and psychiatric fields. Also, required for her success in these fields was her true compassion, empathy and confidentiality when dealing with others. With this combination of attributes, Mellani strives to learn your wants and needs to assist in finding the perfect opportunity for you.
Growing up an only child in a small town, Mellani was a natural at making friends in the neighborhood. School years were spent participating in various activities and sports as a Forsyth Dogie! After graduation, she moved to Texas and then England but soon returned, realizing that Montana was where her heart was. Billings became her permanent home in 1993.
Family is a huge part of Mellani’s life. She and her husband John have four grown children as well as 4 beautiful grandchildren that they love to spend time with. Summers are full of camping and fishing, riding their motorcycles through the beautiful Montana countryside, or just spending time at home with their menagerie of pets. Some call her home a zoo or an animal sanctuary but whatever you call it, just be prepared to have a not so small St. Bernard snuggle on your lap as you throw the ball for her Golden Retriever, while listening to their many birds singing their cheery tunes! Never a dull moment!
Mellani belongs to Billings Biz to Biz, a local business networking organization, and is also a proud member of The Tenacious Dames, a motorcycle riding club exclusively for women. The Tenacious Dames work to empower women in all facets of their lives, one of Mellani’s passions.
If you are looking for someone to help you fulfill your dreams, whether buying or selling, put your faith in Mellani. She will lead you through the entire process, from beginning to end, with compassion, honesty, and integrity.
