“I grew up in real estate with my family: we bought, sold, rented, lent, borrowed, built, fixed, developed, and flipped. I now have a passion to help others build their own American Dream through real estate.”

We strive to provide a high-quality, creative, and result–oriented closing team to help people achieve freedom through real estate regardless if it is your first purchase or another addition to your real estate portfolio.
A graduate of Nova Southeastern University’s Shepard Broad Law Center, Melinda received her Juris Doctorate with honors, at the top of her class. Throughout the course of her law school studies, Melinda worked to represent low-income clients in family law matters as a certified legal intern with the Florida Supreme Court. It was in this role that Melinda realized her passion for helping others through her extensive knowledge of the law, and where she established a commitment to making a difference in the lives of others throughout the course of her career. She opened Grimaldi Law Firm in 2009 shortly after graduating from law school.
Her drive for success didn’t start there. Growing up the daughter of an Italian family with a real estate business of their own in Montreal, Melinda had a first-hand look into what being an entrepreneur really meant. It was these learning lessons that proved invaluable to Melinda’s future and solidified her desire to succeed. Her initial leap into the world of law was driven by the notion of receiving a law degree to be able to help with her family’s Real Estate business – one that filled her with passion and purpose. The very first in her family to graduate college and no stranger to hard work, when Melinda was asked as a child what she aspired to be, she always insisted she would be her own boss. And her own boss she became – the best way for Melinda to continue building on her passions as an attorney and business owner while balancing family life and motherhood. Once she started a family of her own, she really developed a passion for Estate Planning for families with minor children and helping families not only acquire real estate but protect it. It is her mission to help others protect their family and legacy just like she did for her family. To help her achieve this, Melinda teaches a weekly estate planning webinar to help the community be better informed about what risks of not having an estate plan as well as all the benefits.
Today, Melinda practices real estate law, as well as probate and estate planning, at Grimaldi Law Firm in Hollywood, Florida as well as CEO and Managing Attorney for The Closers Title Insurance Agency LLC (r). When not in the office, Melinda spends her time involved with the Women’s Council of Realtors and is on the Residential Real Estate & Industry Liaison Committee. She is a member of the Real Property Probate & Trust Law Section of the Florida Bar and an instructor for both the Miami Board and Fort Lauderdale Board of Realtors. Most importantly, she is the mother to Michael and Matthew.
