MyStyle: Melissa Abrahams, Realtor, RE/MAX Leading Edge

by J. Marshall Pearson

Number of years in real estate: Six

Describe your look: Refined, confident and all about business.

What do you consider a fashion dont? Wearing clothing and accessories that might be distracting to clients. Noisy jewelry, a low-cut top or too-short skirt that requires frequent adjusting, etc.

What is your favorite piece of clothing and why? Black flats. I am always on the search for the perfect shoe. Must be comfortable and chic, and match with just about anything.

What do you consider a must-have accessory? A scarf, draped any which way!

Where are your favorite places to shop? Once a year I get together with girlfriends from all sorts of professions and we do a giant clothing swap. It’s a great opportunity to clean out our closets and share clothes and accessories that we no longer wear. Anything left over is donated. I’ve been lucky to not have to shop too often for clothes, but when I do, I go to Petra Lexington (now closed) TJMaxx, Burlington Coat Factory, Designer’s Circus and WOW.

What, besides your wardrobe, completes your look? Earrings, rings and a classy coat.

What is in your bag/brief case? Laptop, notebook, pens, business cards, moisturizer, lip gloss and floss.

My closet is full of… Too much black, and other solid basics. Seeing myself in this photo makes me realize it’s time to lighten up my attire for spring!

What is your style advice for other people in the industry? The beauty of the real estate business is that you can make it your own. The best piece of advice I received early on in my career was from a fellow Realtor, who told me that no matter what I decide to wear any given day, I should be consistent. I’ve dressed up for listing presentations and dressed down for new construction site visits. My advice is: Be comfortable, confident, and know your client.
