About Melissa

I am a proud Bay Area native and have lived in many cities throughout the South Bay and East Bay. After earning my Bachelor’s Degree at Cal State East Bay, I spent five years in education and eleven years as an entrepreneur, running a business in Berkeley with my husband, Kris. As an East Bay homeowner, I love raising my children in such a diverse community, surrounded by incredible people and nature.


I have always had a passion for working with people and helping them to enrich their lives through education, fitness, and now, home-ownership. My many years of experience in customer service allow me to truly listen to my clients’ needs and provide them with the knowledge and dedication to help them achieve their goals.


I am proud to be part of the Anita Becker + Maria Cavallo-Merrion Team, well regarded for providing top-notch service and expertise. My clients benefit from my dedication, communication, and negotiation skills, as well as the collaborative knowledge of the team, and the vast benefits Compass offers to provide a seamless experience from start to finish. Buying or selling a home is one of the most important decisions one can make, and I am committed to guiding my clients through the process with patience, honesty, and the utmost care.
