Born and raised in Seattle, Washington to a large Greek and Italian family who has developed a robust property investment portfolio in both residential and commercial real estate markets, Melina has had a front row seat to the real estate industry her entire life. When she wasn’t working alongside family throughout the negotiation, acquisition, and asset management process, she was always active in sports. After graduating from University of Arizona as a Delta Gamma member with a focus on retail and consumer sciences and a fashion design minor, Melina fell in love with the warm, dry climate and has since called Scottsdale home. Before joining The Brokery, Melina actively worked in commercial real estate for CBRE for nearly 4 years. There, she gained extensive knowledge in value assessment, sales, customer service, property management, and appraisals. With a long history of customer service in multiple industries, Melina consistently receives accolades for her keen eye and positive energy. She values building honest and ethical working relationships while gathering important details from all parties involved in a project. Melina values a seamless client experience by matching buyer and seller needs with the current market. With around the-clock availability and a willingness to go above and beyond, Melina is committed to serving those who share a love of the desert, valley and its thriving and culturally diverse communities.
