Melanie Rankow Prescott was born and raised on Martha’s Vineyard, all of which she spent growing up in Katama and riding her bike into Edgartown. After graduating from Quinnipiac University with her BS in Business Management & Entrepreneurship, she returned fulltime to work in the family business. She is the head of Client Relations working directly with her clients and their decorators to aid in all aspects of the building selection process.
Melanie was active in the Edgartown Board of Trade as a committee member for multiple events. In addition, she was elected as a Board of Director and sat as the Treasurer for three years.
She is now a Trustee and Vice-President of the Island Grove Residents Association where she and her husband Nick live with their two children.
In addition to Colonial Reproductions, Melanie received her Real Estate Salesperson’s license in 2015 and is honored to be a part of The O’Hanlon Group | Compass Team here in Edgartown. Her construction knowledge is an invaluable resource for her clients and a huge benefit to the O’Hanlon Group team.
Mel enjoys giving back to the community by sponsoring a child at Christmas through The Red Stocking Fund; donating to the MV Boys & Girls Club, Island Food Pantry, Island Housing Trust, Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary and multiple other island charities close to her heart. When she is not working, you can find her outside with her family, enjoying weather of any kind, there is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing.
