At the helm of our Carmel Valley office is Manager Melanie Fontana, a career real estate executive who brings a unique management style to the office at Carmel Valley. A natural leader who mastered the real estate business from the ground up, Melanie Fontana has an open door policy for her independent agents and staff and regularly offers feedback and advice gleaned as well as individualized coaching from her years of experience in the Greater San Diego market.
Melanie Fontana believes that, "At the end of the day, we're not primarily in the business of assisting a host of clients in buying and selling properties; we're in the business of forging strong personal relationships with each individual client so that we can guide buyers and sellers through the often complex and daunting process of a residential real estate transaction in our very special marketplace”.
COMMUNICATION AND INPUT
Brokers and independent real estate associates are the heart and soul of Carmel Valley and its business. They work closely with one another to maximize their effectiveness for all their clients. Independent Agents can voluntarily participate in every aspect of office operations which include Community service and outreach event, Sandicor District representation and regular group strategy sessions aimed at better service to their clients and to the community.
Carmel Valley is a rarity in today's business world - a tightly organized, warm and welcoming, friendly and helpful, sophisticated, successful operation with its own positive, "personal" style.
We are known for our 10 year track record for providing an opportunity for mentoring. With a group of highly skilled mentors that work side by side with our newly licensed independent agents on their first 3 transactions. Many of our top producers today started with us years ago and have grown very successful careers in the Carmel Valley office.
As Melanie Fontana puts it, "We do it all - listings, buyers, renters, education, marketing, advertising and more - with a group approach that brings brokers, associates, administrators, coordinators, marketing/technology personnel and even our helpful receptionists into the mix. Every Carmel Valley staff member receives extensive training and mentoring to assure the consistently highest level of client service.”
