Melanie Kelders is a leading young and energetic real estate agent in Sarnia-Lambton County and surrounding areas.Melanie has over 15 years of experience in real estate with a background in Business Marketing from Fanshawe College.

Real estate isn’t just a career for Melanie, it’s a passion. Business and marketing is in her blood, stemming back to the days when she worked at Klondyke (Kelders) Farms, a successful, family owned and operated farming business just outside of Grand Bend.
On a personal note, Melanie loves the outdoors. Growing up near The Pinery Provincial Park, and now residing in the country just outside of Forest, she spends a lot of time hiking, camping and exploring nature. And when she isn’t hiking with her golden retrievers you might see her out riding around on her motorcycle.

Mark Armitage, Broker

Mark grew up on a century-old fruit and vegetable farm (Armitage Orchards) just outside of Forest where with his wife, Brenda, took over the farm and then raised their two daughters there as well. His farming roots instilled in him the values which he has carried into his real estate career. Honestly, integrity, and a down-to-earth approach are important to him. Mark prides himself on professionalism, experience and trustworthy service, whether he is dealing with a residential, a recreational, or a rural property. On the farm, he grew up learning that it is important not only to plant the seeds, but also to care for the product, bring it to market and support it afterwards. In real estate, this means listening to the customer and nurturing the business relationship by searching, advertising, communicating and delivering the appropriate result. In the agricultural community, integrity, honesty, experience and customer satisfaction is expected. Mark challenges himself in getting the best for his clients.

Karli Prong, Sales Professional

Hi! I’m Karli and I am a member of The RE/MAX Lambton Team, working out of our office right in Forest. I am a lifelong local, having always lived in Lambton Shores. First growing up in Ipperwash near the beach, and now living in Forest with my husband and son. I love where I live, and you should too!

I started my real estate journey in 2018, taking the courses while working full time as a Child and Youth Care Practitioner. The last few years have been busy, working two jobs, dealing with a pandemic, getting married, and having my first child, but through all of that, I learned the importance of perseverance. My passion for real estate stems from my passion as a Child and Youth Care Practitioner, as my career goals have always involved helping families and taking a relational approach.

I love helping clients find a home and community they love, whether it be first time home buyers, downsizing or upsizing families, a vacationer or even an investor. Not only would I be your agent, I would also be your representative, your confidant, your friend, and someone you can rely on.
