Melissa Yost Fuentes
I specialize in residential real estate in the Casa Grande Valley area. I have a drive for excellence which has pushed me to earn several designations and certifications that add to my ability to effectively work for you. I strive to utilize the most current and innovative technology tools when searching for or selling your home. In addition, an Associate of Arts degree in Visual Communications with an emphasis in Multimedia helps me put every piece of the marketing puzzle together to work for you when selling your home.
I believe my true specialty lies in helping homeowners sell. I enjoy determining the most probable buyer for a specific property and then figuring out the best way to market to them. I believe photography is imperative in the first impression a home leaves on a potential buyer. I'm also a data junkie - which means that when it comes time for the appraiser to inspect your home, I've already put together an extensive package to substantiate the value! In this market, when home sellers are trying to reach for new prices, the appraisal is usually the key to success.
I also became a new mom in 2015 to my son, Jonathan, and I enjoy spending my free time with him, my husband and our golden retriever, Murray. We also enjoy taking regular vacations to San Diego and the White Mountains of Arizona, as much as the current conditions of the world allow. My hobbies include crafting, painting and photography - I'm definitely a creative person!
