Licensed Broker in Oregon and Washington

Ten years ago, Melissa was living in a slum in India, helping  women out of sex-trafficking. It was there she discovered her passion for financial education as a means of empowering people to move out of poverty. After graduating from UCLA with a Masters in Social Work, Melissa spent 5 years assisting clients facing homelessness, in jail, or at a psychiatric facility. As much as she loved the work, imagining saving for retirement on the meager salary of a social worker was becoming grim.

That's when Melissa discovered "passive income". In no time, she fell in LOVE with real estate as a vehicle to build wealth. It wasn't long until Melissa began locating off-market multi-family properties to purchase through creative financing strategies and win-win opportunities.

Two years into investing, Melissa quit her day-job as a Social Worker to become a full time broker and investor. Initially she was drawn to people in difficult circumstances, so she developed extensive experience assisting families facing foreclosure, short sales, and probate. 

 Far from the slums of Kolkata, her greatest passion now is empowering other working professionals to develop passive forms of income through buying multi-family properties in Portland.
