About Me

My name is Melanie Kaeding, a licensed real estate agent in the state of Nebraska. I am originally from Sturgis, S.D. but have called Blair, NE my home for over 14 years. As an experienced real estate agent, I take pride in guiding you through the process of buying or selling your home.  My promise is to provide you with exceptional customer service through communication, attention to detail, advanced marketing techniques, hard work, and market knowledge.  From start to finish, while keeping you first of mind, I will work to make the process seamless and stress free. 

I am passionate about helping and investing in people.  Prior to becoming a real estate agent, I was in education for over eight years, working in special education.  Our community is so special to me and I have been blessed to be able to serve in many ways.  Some of these opportunities have been as a volunteer with the Blair Swim Team, serving as President of the Parent Advisory Committee for six years, Post Prom volunteer, and other school activities. I am currently a CASA volunteer and have learned a great deal from spending time with kids dealing with the court system. I just completed the Master Gardener program through UNL and I'm looking forward to helping others, and myself, with gardening questions and concerns. 

When I am not selling real estate, I love to spend time with my family.  I have been married for over 21 years and have three children, ages 18,20 and 22. All three kids are attending the University of Nebraska at Lincoln.  I also enjoy getting time to hike, fish, camp and run!

I have recently started beekeeping as a hobby and joined the Great Plains Master Beekeeper group. I didn't know how fun bugs could be!

I would love the opportunity to help you with any of your home buying/selling needs. Please feel free to contact me anytime. I encourage you to sign up for an account here on my website and download my app-so you have access to up to the minute updates to all area homes for sale!

    I am very thankful that Melanie was my realtor. I was a first time home buyer with no experience working with a banker with very little experience, but Melanie's experience and professionalism turned what could have been a disaster - into a dream come true. I would recommend Melanie to anyone, and I will choose her in the future If I ever decide to sell and buy a different house. - Jason

    Amazing! Loved working with Melanie. She is dedicated, confident, hardworking and has the best interest of her clients at heart. When Melanie showed us a property, she took the time to look at each detail, the good and bad and discussed options. When we had a zoning question, she immediately researched the answer and got back to us. She doesn’t just throw any property at you, Melanie asks the questions, listens and targets those properties! There is no bull with Mel, she is a straight shooter. That is what I appreciate most about her. Highly recommend!

    I have known Mel for around 8-9 yrs now. Mel is a very focused and hard working person with lots of good ideas on how to complete a task on her own as well as working with others. Mel volunteers her time with local school activities as well as an area swim team, which has helped those activities grow in very positive ways. She is a high-commitment person, always there, ready to help. When I contacted Mel to talk with her about someday selling our house, which probably will be at least 3 yrs from now, she made time to come over within a day to look around our property and to give very good, realistic ideas for me to think about. Mel has a very practical and comfortable approach -- it felt more like she was establishing more of a collaboration with me towards eventually selling than pushing me to sell. No pushing what so ever! She immediately helped me feel like she has our best interest at heart and established a working relationship that I already thoroughly trust. Not everyone can do this as quickly. Mel is very observant and gifted at connecting warmly and with respect. I look forward to continuing to talk with Mel about eventually selling our property and very highly recommend Mel for future real estate clients.

    I have worked alongside Melanie for several years. She is a team player with strong communication skills and is highly respected. She is very organized and can move her teams forward. She meets situations with both a problem solving attitude and a great sense of humor. In addition, she is good at thinking “outside the box”. She is who I got to for advice. I strongly recommend selecting Melanie as your real estate agent. She will impress you. Tami Huff
