    Melissa Savenko

    Founder and Partner

    MELISSA is a native of Richmond, Virginia, and grew up in the Bellevue and Ginter Park neighborhoods. She is a graduate of the Collegiate Schools and the University of Virginia, and received her law degree from the University of Richmond. She practiced corporate healthcare law at a large downtown law firm for five years, and never intended to sell real estate full time. Her broker convinced her to try it, she fell in love, and has been a full-time real estate agent since 2006. Melissa recently joined Nest Realty as one of the founding agents in the Richmond office. She has won numerous production awards from the Richmond Association of Realtors and RE/MAX International, and is in the top 3% of agents in the Greater Richmond market. She has lived in the Fan for over twenty years, and loves everything about being part of a walkable urban community.

    Mike Lester

    Founder and Partner

    MIKE has over fourteen years experience as an agent in the Richmond real estate market. For ten years Mike was the listing manager for two of the largest real estate teams in Richmond, which produced on average $20M-$35M in sales a year. Mike managed all aspects of real estate transactions from beginning to end, including contract negotiation, transaction management, and closing coordination. In 2014, Mike began to focus on providing outstanding results for his own buyer and seller clients. Mike grew up in the suburbs just outside of the City of Richmond and is very familiar with the suburban markets. As resident of the Museum District for the last nine years, he also has a broad knowledge of the urban Richmond market. While Mike possesses strong negotiating and marketing skills, it is his ability to connect and empathize with his clients that really sets him apart.
