Melvin A. Vieira Jr.
Realtor and Team Lead
The Vieira Group at RE/MAX Destiny
A member of the RE/MAX Hall of Fame with three decades of real estate experience, Melvin A. Vieira Jr., head of The Vieira Group at RE/MAX Destiny, believes in giving back. He contributes to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and has volunteered with local food pantries and United Way. Vieira also teaches seminars for first-time homebuyers through the Massachusetts Housing Alliance, the City of Boston’s Boston Home Center, NeighborWorks Southern Mass and many others. “I say if you pay it forward, it will return in many other ways,” he says.
Vieira serves luxury and first-time buyers, as well as investors and developers in Greater Boston, but points to his work on behalf of clients in trying circumstances as his most satisfying accomplishment in the past year. He helped an older woman facing imminent foreclosure sell her house and convinced the bank to forgive her debt. “We were able to move her in with her daughter, and now she is living comfortably and doing much better physically and emotionally,” he said. Vieira also facilitated a transaction for an older man who could no longer maintain his house. “Instead of putting it on the market, I was able to find a buyer and make it a very smooth transaction,” he said.
One of the top RE/MAX agents in New England, Vieira is a Certified Negotiation Specialist, Accredited Buyer’s Representative, Certified New Home Specialist and Accredited Luxury Home Specialist. He’s also pursuing the Certified International Property Specialist designation. Vieira serves on the board of directors of the Greater Boston Association of Realtors and Massachusetts Association of Realtors. He is often interviewed about the real estate industry in newspaper and magazine articles and on radio and cable-TV broadcasts.
In his spare time, Vieira enjoys skiing, biking, hiking, golfing, playing lacrosse, refereeing basketball, and being with his friends and family.
