Melinda cares about her clients and gives them her focused personal attention to represent their best interests, whether it is a residential real estate sale, purchase, lease or an investment. The majority of her business is through referrals, so she values the opportunity to earn the trust of her new clients and is honored to receive referrals from them after the escrow closes until they work together again. Once Melinda knows the goals of her clients, she diligently utilizes all the technology and market reports available to capture the specific market information that helps her sellers and buyers stay ahead of the competition and secure lucrative deals. With her vast negotiation and mediation training as a Certified Mediator and Negotiator, she secures the best price and terms for her buyers and sellers. Melinda works diligently to make sure everyone in the transaction is moving forward and pays attention to all the details until the escrow is closed. It is this excellent work ethic, positive attitude, honesty and integrity that her clients appreciate when they trust her with their homes and real estate investments.
Over the course of sixteen years, Melinda has represented many clients in a wide range of price points and areas of Orange County. She loves sharing in the joy of helping her clients realize their dreams of finding the perfect home or selling their home and has curated many resources to support her clients with their primary, secondary or investment homes as well as multifamily income properties. Every sale and purchase is different, and with this variety comes the need to think creatively and find solutions to succeed in a world that has changing markets and circumstances.
