MELISSA HARRIS, REALTOR, GREEN
MELISSA HARRIS REAL ESTATE
I've always loved design and architecture. As I kid, I would flip through floor plan catalogs and obsess over the house blueprints and many possibilities. Fast forward 20(ish) years, to when I realized that this childhood obsession would provide a clue to finding my true calling: Real Estate.
Once achieving my Real Estate license in 2014, I quickly became one of the top-producing Brokers in the Seattle office of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, and I was named "Rookie of the Year" after my first year in the business. Since then, I have sold over $50 Million in Residential Real Estate, have continued to help Buyers, Sellers, Investors & Builders alike. I truly love my work and having the opportunity to help my clients. I LOVE Real Estate!
Native to the Pacific Northwest! I grew up in beautiful Bonney Lake, WA, graduated from Sumner High School, then attended college at Eastern Washington University. Before Real Estate, I worked as a Business Consultant & Manager for seven of Seattle's best coffee shops and cafes. I bring this strong background in marketing and hospitality into my Real Estate Business everyday. And yes, I DO know how to make a great cup of coffee (even with a beautiful design on top)!
MY FREE TIME
I love exploring our beautiful state and traveling with my Husband (who is West Seattle born & raised) and our two kids (12 year old Son & 2 year old Daughter). Any chance we get we head out on road trips or day trips up to the San Juan Islands, and try to take a bigger trip at least once a year (California is our favorite home away from home). As a family, we love to kayak, explore new towns, or simply just hang out by the beach. We are super conscious of the impact we have on our environment, and live in a "green" home and drive an electric vehicle (which we are OBSESSED with!).
