To say Real Estate is my life is an understatement! I was born into a local Real Estate family and raised on the Monterey Peninsula. My summer and after school jobs as a teen were spent working for our local Real Estate Association or in a Real Estate Brokerage office. Growing up in the Real Estate market, I learned to appreciate the dedication and ethics required to assist clients in reaching their homeownership goals. I've witnessed the grit and determination it takes to succeed in Real Estate by providing the very best support for clients.
I am a trusted Real Estate professional with 20+ years of personal and professional Real Estate experience and knowledge. My goal is to bring confidence to the Real Estate process. Most importantly by understanding the nuances of the niche markets.
Beginning my career in the Real Estate field, I spent a decade in the mortgage lending industry. In 2009, when the housing market crashed, I realized a void in the sales process that was needed to assist homeowners who were upside down on their homes. At that time I co-founded a short sale negotiating company. Leveraging this experience as a skilled short sale negotiator and successful business manager, I then returned to the sales side of real estate.
I believe clear and consistent communication is key to a successful transaction. I am known for outstanding client support, high tech marketing techniques and personal touches while keeping my client's best interest at heart.
I reside in beautiful Carmel Valley with my husband and two children. We are active community members, avid travelers and enjoy spending time outdoors in the California sunshine. In my need to continue to grow and learn, I am currently training to run the Big Sur International Marathon in 2020.
"Meet your new realtor, Melissa Radowicz. Seriously, your search is over. Don't overthink it. She is the one. Melissa's immense capabilities as a professional are exceeded only by her tremendous qualities as a human, which she blends to be the best conceivable realtor. Melissa grew up in Monterey County and in the real-estate industry. She understands both from all angles. Nothing surprises her; there is no event for which she is unprepared. There are no "maybe's" or "I guess we could's" or "things have changed." She also understands that selling and buying a home are emotional experiences with lots at stake. She takes care of the head and the heart. My life was a succession of brutal events for more than a decade. I was literally on a 10-year losing streak, and having to sell our family home was just one more loss. I limped into our home sale with limited intellectual and emotional bandwidth. I expressed to Melissa that I wanted our home priced appropriately and I did not want to languish on the market. We zeroed in on a price and went to market. We had a very acceptable offer from a pre-approved buyer within 48 hours. It was amazing. Along the way she handled every challenge and kept the sale on course. Everything went as smoothly as possible and there were no surprises. She dealt with everything objectively and confidently, like a true industry veteran. It was incredibly impressive and I am deeply in her debt. Whether you are buying or selling, you owe it to yourself to at least have a conversation with Melissa. You won't be sorry you did. She is quite simply remarkable at what she does."
