Melanie Gamble is a real estate expert, entrepreneur, author and speaker dedicated to helping others. As the broker/owner of Maryland-based 212 Degrees Realty, LLC, she delights in being surrounded by a team of committed REALTORS® serving the Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia markets.
In 2019, Gamble was elected secretary for her local board of REALTORS® and selected to serve as an at-large director for her state association. Perhaps most importantly, though, she also celebrated her 10th year of being cancer free.
“Helping people own and keep their homes is not only a business endeavor, but also a personal passion and spiritual mission,” says Gamble. “As a breast cancer survivor, I am acutely aware of how precious life and time are for all of us; I seek to help others realize their dreams and make the most of what they are given.”
A two-time graduate of Florida A&M University, Gamble holds degrees in criminal justice and public administration. While in graduate school, she became the first woman and youngest executive director of the Florida Conference of Black State Legislators. She lobbied exceptionally hard for the Rosewood bill, which awarded the descendants of the racially motivated Rosewood massacre over $3 million in reparations.
Gamble is a John C. Maxwell-certified coach, teacher and speaker committed to helping women, and she regularly volunteers at various organizations. She authored the book “Unintended Consequences – The Great Recession’s Impact on Communities of Color” and co-authored “The Big Secret” with renowned author and coach Jack Canfield.
