Hello, my name is Melody O'Leary-Namikas. I have over 19 years of experience in the Real Estate industry. After 13 years with Coldwell Banker, I moved to Berkshire Hathaway in 2013. I am proud to be associated with Berkshire for a number of reasons: Their branding is sophisticated, they have the latest innovations in marketing and technology and they are known for having the highest average sales price of any residential brokerage in the United States.
I was born and raised in the beautiful seaside community of Ventura and I feel extremely fortunate to have lived here my entire life. I have traveled the world, but I'm always so happy to come home to Ventura. I love the people of my home town, who are friendly, approachable and unpretentious - a description that I would like to think fits me as well.
Working with both buyers and sellers, I am a skilled negotiator with extensive knowledge of the Real Estate market, ensuring that my clients get the best deal possible. I specialize in both residential and residential income properties. I value communication and feel it is key to a successful transaction. Over the years I have learned that taking a listing and putting up a sign is the easy part; however, the value of my expertise is knowing how to navigate through the often times difficult and challenging process through escrow. I have always favored a hands-on approach in working with my clients and I am delighted when our relationship progresses from realtor-client to long-time friends. I'm proud to say that the majority of my business is the result of referrals from satisfied clients, friends and family. I apply honesty, integrity, ethics and diligence to every transaction.
My husband, Alex, is a local dentist and together we have four grown children and four grandchildren. One of our favorite shared interests is purchasing, refurbishing and reselling homes. My passion for interior design not only provides me with much personal enjoyment but also has proven to be an asset to my clients. I am able to help them maximize the value of their home without incurring the additional expense for a professional stager. In my free time I also enjoy gardening, searching Flea Markets for treasures and camping in our vintage Airstream trailer we call "Kitty."
I love what I do and will work hard to make your real estate dreams come true!
