Melissa was born into a local Real Estate family and raised on the Monterey Peninsula. Growing up in the local real estate market, she learned to appreciate the dedication and ethics required to assist clients in reaching their homeownership goals. Melissa is passionate about offering a fresh perspective on the Real Estate buying and selling experience with her clients, friends and family. Utilizing 20 years of personal and professional Real Estate experience and knowledge, she brings confidence to the Real Estate process and understand the nuances of the local niche markets.
Beginning her career in the Real Estate field, she spent a decade in the mortgage lending industry. In 2009, when the housing market crashed, Melissa saw a void in the sales process that was needed to assist homeowners who were upside down on their homes and so she co-founded a short sale negotiating company. Leveraging this experience as a skilled short sale negotiator and successful business manager, she returned to the sales side of real estate in 2012 where I provided my support to some of the top producers in the market.
Melissa believes clear and consistent communication is key to a successful transaction while utilizing unparalleled attention to detail from her experience in transaction coordinating. She is known for outstanding client support, high tech marketing techniques and personal touches while keeping her client's best interests at heart.
Melissa resides in Carmel Valley with her husband and two children. The family are active community members, avid travelers and enjoy time outdoors in the California sunshine.
