Melanie Northcutt

As a businesswoman born-and-raised in Longview, I believe constant personal and professional growth is the recipe for success. I am a 6th generation East Texan, graduate of Pine Tree High School and a Stephen F. Austin State University Alumni. After graduating, I returned to my hometown with a renewed love and passion for my community. After working in sales, marketing and management roles after college, I earned my real estate license in 2013. Since the beginning, I had a dream to open up a boutique-style real estate brokerage, and give back to my hometown. In February 2017, I officially opened Sugar Magnolia Properties on the brick streets of historic downtown Longview! I embraced the opportunity to not only on take care of clients like I would my own grandmothers, but also to focus on good ol’ fashioned, southern hospitality. I truly enjoy working with clients who become friends. I believe open and consistent communication with a touch of grace and empathy goes a long way. I love helping my community buy and sell homes, and look forward to meeting you!
I am involved in many professional and civic organizations, including those listed below. When I find spare time away from volunteering, I enjoy yoga, working out, wine, cooking, playing the piano, reading, interior design, traveling, antiquing, and spending time with family and friends...especially my fluffy, white Havanese puppy named Chippy.
