Business Spotlight on Realtor and Assistant Broker Mel Oldakowski by Lorraine Glowczak always knew her passion and life’s work were to help others reach their dreams. Realtor and Associate Broker, Mel Oldakowski of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate of The Masiello Group in Windham found that path by helping others find and purchase their dream home.
“I always knew that I would be in a customer-based business,” stated Oldakowski. “Being a part of a family of realtors, the decision to enter into this rewarding profession was easy for me.”
Oldakowski’s mother-in-law was a top selling real estate agent in Indiana while her sister-in-law was a top selling agent in Oklahoma. Oldakowski hopes to follow in their footsteps and is on her way to accomplishing that. 

Oldakowski, who is a member of the Greater Portland Board of Realtors and provides her service in the Greater Portland and Sebago Lakes Region is paving the way for future homeowners to have a pleasant, positive and high-quality purchasing experience. “It is my personal goal to provide excellent service and do my best to make the real estate transaction the most enjoyable experience possible,” Oldakowski said. “After all, purchasing a home is one of the major goals in our lives. It is up there with getting married and having children.”

Being a part of a supportive network of innovative agents, Oldakowski states that her colleagues and the BHGRE Masiello Group reinforce her focus and determination to provide the greatest purchasing transitions and making sure her customers truly get what they desire in a home. “The agency and the other Realtors’ missions align with my own,” she stated. “This support contributes to my success of providing high quality work and delivers a positive experience for my customer.” 

Whether you are buying or selling land, a vacation home, residential home, waterfront property, new construction or investment property, Oldakowski is experienced in all forms of real estate. Her one true real estate love, however, is waterfront property. “I love spending time on the lake, boating with family and friends,” explained Oldakowski.  

Although Oldakowski is a Maine native, she moved away for about nine years. When she returned, she discovered how much she missed summers on the lake. “My husband grew up on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire and he and his family always recall the fond memories from his childhood. I want to create that same opportunity of fun summer memories on the lake for my customers.”

What contributes to Oldakowski success not only as a Realtor, but as an individual, is her contribution to her community. When she’s not showing customers their potential dream homes, you will find her out and about participating in fundraising and community efforts. Oldakowski volunteers on the Windham, ME Parks & Recreation Advisory Committee, RSU #14 Principal's Advisory Committee, as well as with the Maine State Society for the Protection of Animals. She also has been a very active former board member with the Sebago Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce.
Oldakowski raises funds through the various 5K, 10K and half marathon events she enters each year.

Oldakowski has a full and happy life, her career being a part of that. “I love my job and helping clients achieve their goals & dreams,” she reiterated. “I strive to provide the highest level of customer service from start to finish. But ultimately, I enjoy seeing people excited and happy about their new home. When I witness that, I know I have done my job and am living my own dream of helping others live theirs.”
