Melody O’Leary has over 16 years of experience in the real estate industry. After 13 years with Coldwell Banker, she became affiliated with Berkshire Hathaway in February 2013. She is proud to be associated with Berkshire Hathaway for a number of reasons:
- Their branding is sophisticated, they have the latest innovations in marketing and technology and they are known for having the highest average sales price of any residential brokerage in the United States.
- Working with both buyers and sellers, she is a skilled negotiator with extensive knowledge of the real estate market.
- She favors a hands-on approach in dealing with clients and is delighted when their relationship progresses from realtor-client to long-time friends. The majority of her business is the result of referrals from satisfied clients, friends and family.
Melody said “I was born and raised in the beautiful seaside community of Ventura and I feelextremely fortunate to have lived here my whole life. I have traveled the world but I’m always happy to come home to Ventura. I love the people of my home town, who are friendly, approachable and unpretentious – a description that I’d like to think fits me as well.”
“My husband, Alex is a local dentist and together we have four grown children. One of our favorite shared interests is purchasing, refurbishing and reselling homes. My passion for interior design not only provides me with much personal enjoyment but also has proven to be an asset to my clients. I am able to help them maximize the value of their home without incurring the additional expense of a professional stager. In my free time, I also enjoy gardening, searching Flea Markets for treasures and camping in our vintage Airstream trailer, Kitty. “
