Melanie moved to Bend with her family in 2005 from Arizona and she loves Bend and all that it has to offer. With that being said, she also understands the stresses of moving with a family and trying to sell your home and find that perfect next home. Melanie have been a full time broker since June of 2010. She is very passionate about real estate and helping people. When she first started real estate everyone asked “Why are you getting into real estate when the market has crashed?” Her response "If I can survive in this market I can survive in any market". Through her hard work and dedication to her clients she have more than just "survived the market". At the end of 2013, out of 1500 real estate agents she was ranked in the top 2% of all Brokers in Central Oregon and one of the top agents at Cascade Sotheby’s Realty. But her highest priority is providing great service and making her clients happy. She prides herself on her customer service which means truly listening to her clients needs, negotiating for THEIR best interest and not just for another sale, being available and keeping them informed through the entire process. In the short time she has been in real estate 62% of her business comes from referrals - which she views as the best compliment she could ever have. People are so pleasantly surprised with the service and the results that she provides, that they feel comfortable telling their friends and family about her or they team up with her again for another real estate transaction.Melanie is much more than just stats, she truly loves what she does and she would LOVE to help you with any of your real estate needs!
