“Customer satisfaction is my highest priority.” My dedication to the client stems from being raised in a successful family business, namely Kling Real Estate, Ltd. where the motto has always been “the client always comes first.” I have found that this commitment to our customers was the basis of my family’s success. Each of my family members have incorporated this level of commitment to the various career paths we have chosen throughout our lives. I began my career with Kling Real Estate, Ltd. after graduating from St. John’s University.

Here at Kling Real Estate, Ltd. I began as a Sales Representative before earning the designation of Licensed Real Estate Broker. I successfully managed the full scope of residential and commercial real estate transactions. I have experience in pre-qualifying customers for residential mortgages as well as the mortgage application process through closing of sale. I have worked closely with the President, and former mortgage broker, Melvin E. Kling in the processing of mortgages to ensure successful approvals. I have interfaced regularly with engineers, inspectors, attorneys, and bank representatives to secure each sales transaction. I also have experience in managing the sale of foreclosure properties for banks following bank specific requirements.

After 10 years in the RE industry I joined AT&T at a sales capacity before advancing to the position of Learning Facilitator. Following this, I worked as a Supervisor before earning a position as Client Advocate and Executive Escalation Manager in Service and Support. I was later promoted to the capacity of Area Manager within AT&T providing support to more than 130 Premier clients in the N.Y. and N.J Region. After 10 years with AT&T I decided to rejoin the family business.

Today, I continue to manage and oversee the full scope of residential and commercial real estate transactions ensuring a smooth running and cost-efficient enterprise. I also provide support to our new and existing Sales Representatives in the acquisition and management of residential, commercial, and land listings through closing of sale.

I would be happy to assist you in the sale or purchase of any property of interest. As your listing agent, I will help you realize the highest sales price from the most qualified buyer. If you are interested in purchasing real estate, I will assist you in defining your needs and interests as well as identifying properties that meet your requirements!

Melvin Kling Blew a Kiss

Staten Island native Melvin Kling Sr. didn’t have an easy childhood.

Which is why Kling — a successful Realtor and Island legend — is so committed to bettering the lives of young people everywhere.

Last night, that commitment came full circle with the naming of the Staten Island YMCA South Shore Melvin E. Kling Sr. Teen Fitness Center in Eltingville.

Kling, in his acceptance speech, heaped praise on countless people who he said helped bring a new YMCA to the South Shore — notably, Norma D’Arrigo, who heads countless YMCA fundraisers. But the Hon. John Fusco, Kling’s best friend, said what a lot of people in the audience of more than 200 knew — “It was Mel who did it,” Fusco said. “He worked day and night to get it done.”

Kling, who grew up working on farms here and turns 80 soon, gave an impassioned acceptance speech and had tears in his eyes as he expressed his love for the YMCA. “I was poor as a kid,” he said. “I was always on the outside looking in. I never want to see a kid on the outside looking in on Staten Island. The Y does that: They bring kids in.”

This was reinforced when two women — both of whom lost their husbands at early ages — told of how the Y came to their rescue with free programs and after-school care.

Robert Scamardella, immediate past chair of the YMCA Board of Managers, spoke of “the legend of Mel Kling,” whose dedication to the YMCA has spanned more than 25 years.

“You know, hard work spotlights the character of people. Some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses and some don’t turn up at all. Mel Kling, in everything he does, turns up his sleeves,” Scamardella said.

Kling said the YMCA center would build for everyone a stronger future by building the minds, bodies and spirits of our youth.

“Our teens represent the future of America,” said Kling. “It is our responsibility as a community to provide them with the tools they need to succeed. They need a place to meet and share and grow. The YMCA teen center combined with our specialized teen programs is that place.”

The evening also served as the kickoff of the 2010 Strong Kids Campaign.

Strong Kids is designed to raise the money necessary for youth programs and scholarships at the Staten Island YMCA so that no one is turned away due to an inability to pay.
