My unique diverse background, knowledge and experience will be a benefit to the Board of Directors. I am authentic, humble and curious. Most challenging problems facing humanity today are problems with no ready solutions. I have discovered the locus of responsibility for solving problems shifts to all members of our organization, hence I have developed the ability to draw the issues out for problem solving by leveraging collective intelligence. I have a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering, MBA and MS degree in Real Estate. Elect me to bring great value to all REALTORS®.

I have been serving on a variety of committees with MAR since 2014 and will be the Chair of the YPN Committee in 2021. I have always been a strong advocate for the value and education of not only our new members, but existing as well! By being on the board in 2021, I plan to continue to introduce new value adds to members and hope to implement new ideas that will continue to be built upon in years to come! Thank you for the consideration.

Representation, representation! It is extremely crucial that ALL members of MAR feel like there is someone behind the scenes fighting for changes on their behalf, pushing to make a positive impact on our Board, and on the real estate industry as a whole.  I am a big proponent of Organizational Effectiveness, with my previous Management experience as well as my Masters in Organizational Leadership and Effectiveness, I am a change agent!  It’s something that I am extremely passionate about, and am excited about being able to make an impact for my Realtor comrades and the real estate industry as a whole.

Melissa Roterdam

REALTOR® and Property Manager, BHGRE All Seasons
13 years real estate experience

I serve the greater Twin Cities metro, focusing on the Minneapolis condo market. Whether it’s in my role as the Chair of MAR’s Global Business Council or my position on the North Loop’s Planning & Zoning Committee, I build community by showing up to improve the ones I’m part of. I’m a leader in my church, a delegate in my local Senate District, and I share my knowledge with local politicians when they’re considering changes that impact the real estate industry. Simply put, I do the work. It’s a legacy passed down by my grandfather, an immigrant and a leader for worker’s rights in California. I’d be honored to work on behalf of MAR, an important lifeline for education and support for the independent contractors in our industry. Thank you!
