As a San Francisco native, the Bay Area is the only home Melissa has ever known. Melissa developed an interest in real estate early on under the influence of her father, a real estate broker, and her family, first generation immigrants and real estate enthusiasts. Her father often recalls the story of Melissa selling her first home as an infant while accompanying him to an open house. Propped up on the kitchen counter in her carseat, Melissa's charm led to the sale of the home at an unbelievably high price.
Throughout her youth, Melissa attended open houses with her mother and grandmother, pored over real estate magazines, and closely followed house hunting and home renovation shows. Melissa knew she would eventually obtain a license in real estate herself, it was just a matter of time. With experience in community advocacy, education, and healthcare, Melissa is well equipped to fight for her clients' best interests through skilled negotiation and communication. With compassion and care for details, Melissa is dedicated to providing unparalled service in helping clients reach their real estate goals. An alumnus of Lowell High School and UC Berkeley, Melissa spends her free time teaching group fitness and serving as a board member of The Richmond Neighborhood Center, a local nonprofit.
