OVER 25 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE

Real Estate Direct was formed in 1997 by successful real estate agent and broker Frank Schrader.  With Frank’s leadership and the over 100 years of combined experience of our exceptional and dedicated roster of realtors, you will receive the absolute most informed and educated guidance whether you are buying, selling, or in need of property management for your portfolio of investment properties.

With over 25 years of experience in the local Brevard market, Real Estate Direct can narrow your new home search based on your unique needs.

INTEGRITY COMES FIRST

We focus on Frank and open discussion with our clients. We have found that, in this business, honesty is the best policy and strive to ensure that our clients receive the facts about their property directly. Agents who sugar-coat or gloss over the facts of a property quite frankly do not last in this business.

Whether you are ready to buy, sell, or lease a residential or commercial property our dedicated agents will be ready and waiting to guide you along the way.

I was very happy with the service provided by Michelle Grimes of Real Estate Direct. I was new to the area, having been transferred to Melbourne from the Seattle area. I had a limited amount of time to conduct my house hunting trip, so it was... essential that Michelle listen well, She did an outstanding job and showed me some excellent properties that met all my criteria. She listened to my needs, had deep knowledge of the market and was an excellent communicator. I could not have been happier with the results!read more

Frank and Melanie Schrader are excellent Realtors and make an incredible team. They compliment each other, and are the most honest, humble, and very important in Real Estate, they show great patience. They not only helped us sell our first house in... two weeks but the next two transactions. I have owned 9 houses in my lifetime and they were our last three. You do not let someone sell, buy, and sell again if they are not worthy, and knowledgeable. We now live in Tampa and when we come back to Brevard County they will be our first call. We only wish them the best because they earn it and deserve success. Thank You Frank and Melanie for being their when we needed you the most.Joe and Pamela Youngkinread more

I purchased a home from Frank in Satellite Beach several years ago. The process went smooth as butter as I closed on one in the morning (I was the seller) and then closed on the one he sold me later in the afternoon. The process was handled very... professionally. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase Real Estate in Brevard County. His wife Melanie is also a true professional as she guided me thru the process including vendors, etc to assess my home 'n roof after hurricane Irma. Great Couple to Deal With!read more
