Meet Melanie


Describe Your Journey Into Real Estate.

I grew up with parents in the real estate business, and it was most rewarding watching them help their clients with their first home purchases or negotiate investment opportunities. After having my first child, I was dissatisfied with childcare options, so I decided to leave the corporate world to care for her. This shift allowed me to follow in my parents’ footsteps and pursue my real estate career. Now, I am helping a second generation of clients purchase their first homes and invest in real estate. It’s such a great feeling.

What Are Three Words Your Clients Would Use to Describe You?

Knowledgeable, Responsive and Honest.

What Most Excites You About Your Work?

Utilizing my strong negotiating skills to protect my client’s best interest.

Where Can We Find You When You’re Not Working?

When I am not working, I am spending quality time with my loving husband and three wonderful kids: Leanna, Derek, and Madelyn either at the local museums or playgrounds, or volunteering our time for the community.

What Would Be Impossible for You to Give Up?

I follow a strict code of ethics, so it would be impossible for me to give up my integrity. Having been raised by a strict mom and now being one myself, I strongly believe in discipline and structure and following rules and regulations.

Anything Else You’d Like to Tell People About Yourself?

I am a strong believer in fate but believe that we choose our own journey in life. I believe that anybody can succeed as long as one is determined and have a strong passion for what they do. You are only willing to work that extra 110% if you love what you do. Be inspired by great mentors. I have been truly blessed to have encountered some great mentors along my path of real estate.

What is Your Favorite Room in the House?

My favorite room in the house is the kitchen, as I enjoy cooking for my family. I believe food creates togetherness and bonding. After a long day of work and school, nothing brings a family closer than a delicious pot of chili or tuna casserole–my mother-in-law’s favorite recipe. Making breakfast with my kids, squeezing fresh orange juice, or baking cookies are just a few of my favorite memories that I will always treasure. So, I feel strongly about an open kitchen concept with ample natural lighting when helping clients on their home search. When representing sellers, I provide suggestions to help showcase the kitchen.

What Would You Say to a 5-year-old Child if He or She Asked You What the Purpose of Life is?

I would tell the 5-year-old that the purpose of life is to make the world a better place so to make sure to put your two cents in. The world is like a big pot of soup, the more knowledge and input (ingredients), the better flavor the soup is.

Having grown up with parents working in real estate, I found my passion for this industry at an early age. I chose to follow in their footsteps after seeing how many clients they were able to help fulfill the American Dream of Home Ownership. After 7 years of working extensively in the San Francisco Bay Area, I have developed a keen understanding of the local market and always take the time to figure out what clients really need from me as a professional real estate broker. I take pride in serving my clients with the utmost level of care and professionalism. It is my job to ensure a smooth, worry- free, and satisfying experience for everyone involved.

As a mother of three children, I fully understand the aspects of finding the perfect home for your family. There are so many factors to consider which makes the home search quite arduous. Where do you start and what is most important to you? Is it the neighborhood or schools or safety? This is where I can offer my insight and guide clients in the right direction. Helping buyers find a home where they can raise a family and build memories for a lifetime is most rewarding to me.

I also understand a seller’s sentimental value when letting go of a place where they raised their kids and nurtured a home for thirty years. Helping sellers find comfort during the sale process is my specialty. With extra care and attention, I have been able to appease my clients and manage their properties delicately. These valuable experiences have allowed me to assist my clients during all stages of their lives – whether it’s their first home purchase, purchasing an investment property, or downsizing to a smaller home.
