Melissa Cartier  Design Partner

Also born to an entrepreneur, Melissa grew up in the family's garden center where she learned firsthand the importance and rewards of continued hard work and providing superior customer service. A graduate of the University of New York at Albany, Melissa studied marketing, advertising and public relations. 

Real Estate Broker and Owner of boutique real estate firm, Cartier Real Estate Group, in downtown Saratoga Springs, Melissa applies those practices in her business working with clients throughout the flourishing Greater Saratoga real estate market. Over the past eleven years she's helped buyers evaluate homes, and advised sellers on marketing their properties. Having toured thousands of homes and sold hundreds,  Melissa's experience gives her valuable insights into home design and the all-important principle of resale value.

Cohen's biggest fan, Melissa shares this expertise in their work together with building and remodeling clients in every step from selecting building lots, choosing floorplans and evaluating design elements for their homes. Together, they also design/build custom-crafted homes together which she lists and sells. They create each home with the attention to detail and quality as they would their own. Melissa's goal is to ensure each home they build reflects a client's personal style at any budget, and that it'll bring lasting functionality and value for the future. 

Cohen Cartier   Builder/Owner 

​​Born to a meticulous New Hampshire custom builder, Cohen has carpentry talent in his blood and a strong New England work ethic. Raised in the family business he learned to strive for perfection and to exceed customer expectations. He leads his business with these principles today.​ Cohen is a graduate of the University of New Hampshire's Civil Technology program where he studied construction principles and honed his passion for the residential construction process. 

Cohen brings an analytical mind and an artistic eye to each project. From framing to finish carpentry, Cohen excels at doing it right the first time and creating beautiful results from his clients' ideas. He leads a trusted and talented crew that model his commitment and professionalism.

Preferring a hands-on approach to home building, Cohen is selective in the work he undertakes to ensure clients receive the level of attention their new home or renovation project deserves. Clients rave that he makes what could be a daunting process into a pleasant one, and are consistently impressed that he delivers homes on time and on budget.

Together, Cohen and Melissa build homes using a thoughtful approach

to ensure an efficient use of space, timeless design elements, and lasting value.

Their Life Together​

Cohen and Melissa love working together to bring new homes to good people and feel honored to do it every day. They live in Greenfield Center with their two children, Mason and Aila, and Springer Spaniel, Gidget. Family time is their favorite time, especially at their home, and they enjoy outdoor activities with their kiddos whenever possible. They love small-town living and being part of their local community.

The tradition continues as they now raise their son and daughter in this family business with the hope they too will learn the joy found in working hard for - and doing right by - the trusting clients they serve.
