“Sensitivity, discretion and market knowledge are what Melissa Rubin continuously brings to my clients. Our long-standing relationship has resulted in many clients selling their marital properties profitably and timely. Her experience as a mediator facilitates both parties to the closing table. She is the divorce whisperer.”
—Karen E. Lungarelli P.A.

Marital property symbolizes a culmination of memories, emotions, and accumulated assets. Understanding the nuances of selling a property during a divorce makes a remarkable difference in the profit to both parties.

This is how I do it.

1. The buyer book.

Our buyer book includes all information about the home for sale, including a timeline of any and all changes to the property. This is gifted to prospective buyers to aid them in developing their offer. With the book, buyers make well-informed initial offers and further negotiation after inspections is avoided.

2. Compass Concierge.

This exclusive service covers the upfront costs associated with making improvements to a home prior to listing it. The interest-free-loan program has been proven to increase profitability by 15% or more.

3. Attracting our network of buyers.

When we represent the buyer and the seller, we automatically reduce our success fees—a win-win for everyone. The MJR Groupe is ingrained in South Florida, as well as nationally and internationally. Our team’s diversity ensures maximum exposure for your property.


The MJR Groupe has been working with decoupling families since 2002. My experience as a certified mediator facilitates the communication between all parties and quickens the selling process.

I look forward to learning more about your practice and your clients. I’ll reach out in a few days to schedule an introductory meeting.
