Melisa Camp joins HomeSmart; one of her first sales is over $1M in Paradise Valley. She also earns a Masters degree in Education.

Everyone remembers the first house they moved in to – whether it was as a child with your family, as a university student with friends, or with your spouse – because your home is a piece of your identity.

 

I understand the importance of that link and make sure that you're incredibly happy with your home and its value as a long-term investment.

 

By doing more than just selling you a home and working with you as a partner, I do what I can to make that succeed. I put my clients before commission and love sharing what I know for other's benefit.


Trust the Realtor other Realtors trust and call my team to work for you first.

With Gratitude,
