Meet Melissa Kaminsky! | Rye & Rye Brook Moms

I am thrilled to be the featured Mom this month! I started this website with Megan Sullivan and Layla Lisiewski, but am now passing the torch to my excellent and talented friend Gail Solow. I am a realtor with Julia B Fee Sotheby’s in Rye, the #1 brokerage in the area. I have been a realtor for 7 years and absolutely love putting people in the right home.
I grew up in New City, New York and went to SUNY Albany. I have lived in NY my entire life and in Rye Brook for the last 12 years with my husband, Andrew, and 2 sons, Max and Joshua. Both are in Blind Brook High School. We have had such an amazing experience in this community, with the people and the schools.  Max is a senior this year so we are doing the whole college application thing now, it’s tons of fun 😊.
I couldn’t have survived here without my friends and their support. We have NO family in the area, everyone lives in other states. My friends have helped with everything from carpools to taking me in for holidays. A big thank you to them! And a big thank you to my husband –  he is a great dad and a great partner in life. I am lucky to have him!
We try to spend time together as a family as often as we can, but we all know how hard that is! My kids both play sports — tennis is a big one for us. We belong to the Bailiwick Club in Greenwich where we spend a lot of time. My son Max is a lifeguard there. My husband coaches Josh’s soccer team so weekend soccer is high on our list as well.
We all love Marvel movies, even me, so we try to see those movies together.  We all play Ping Pong and have had countless hours of competitions. We have a rescue named Savannah whom we all adore and enjoy every minute with her.
One thing people would be surprised to know about me… I worked in technology for 11 years before having my kids. I was sort of a techie!! Also, I “flipped” a house this year and loved doing it, I am currently looking for my next project.
