Today Melanie is celebrating 28 years helping clients find home!

When You Continually Demonstrate Optimism, Drive And Passion For Life, You’ll Undoubtedly Make A Difference In The Lives Of Others And Your Own – Melanie Press

Melanie, a seasoned real estate specialist originally from England and proud islander by choice, has resided in PEI for the past 15 years. Her decision to move to the island was a no-brainer; the moment she and her family set foot on the island’s iconic red soil, they knew they had found a place to call home.


Melanie finds that PEI is a fantastic place to raise children, work, and live. When asked why she chose to make PEI her home, her response is always the same: “Try everywhere else, and you’ll answer that question for yourself.”


Melanie’s career in real estate just hit a milestone, spanning 28 years! Having worked in the UK, Europe and of course, Canada. During her career she has sold everything from parking lots to a pop stars mansion.


I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to work with some of the most varied and valuable real estate in the world, as well as some of the most volatile and demanding markets. This experience, in turn, allows me to appreciate the importance of my clients’ individual needs more than most.

Her clients rave about her ability to comprehend their unique needs, which has resulted in an extensive and devoted clientele. Her straightforward and honest approach, combined with her ability to adapt to difficult situations, has been instrumental in her success.


Melanie is dedicated to elevating professional standards in the PEI real estate industry. She has served on the Professional Standards Committee and as chair and committee member of the PEI Real Estate Association (PEIREA). Melanie’s unparalleled experience, focus on clients, and forward-thinking approach are the driving forces behind the Impress Island Realty brand.


Opened in 2019, Impress Island Realty is a unique boutique firm that provides a comprehensive range of real estate services. As a locally owned and operated business, the business is entirely independent of any corporate hierarchy, which allows Impress Island Realty to offer tailored programs and services that meet our clients’ needs.


At Impress Island Realty, they are dedicated to providing exceptional customer service and professionalism. No real estate experience is average, each one is unique, and the team is committed to delivering above-average representation for all types of transactions, regardless of the size or value of your property.


As a community member, Melanie has served on the PEI Business Women’s Association Board of Directors, the PEI Real Estate Association Board and Professional Standards Committee, and she currently serves as a board member and treasurer for the Mid Isle Matrix Hockey Association.


Outside of work, Melanie is a proud mother of two teenagers, two German Shepherds, a cat (Mr. Socks), as well as being married to her (long suffering) husband Paul. Her and her family are also a billet family for the Charlottetown Islanders and host players in their home for the duration of the QMJHL season.


When she’s not working, she can be found at the soccer field, hockey rink, or one of the island’s many spectacular beaches.


Melanie’s commitment to the client experience is paramount and feels privileged to have supported so many wonderful clients over her extensive career.


The role of a great Realtor® is imperative to the transaction to ensure the best experience for everyone involved and I am truly blessed to have supported so many wonderful people from all corners of the world. I have had, and continue to have one incredible career.
