Driven to educate and find the loan that best meets the needs of her clients, Melissa "Mel" Stutes has found success and personal gratification in the mortgage financing industry. While her career began in 2013, Melissa has actually been in the industry since 2007 when she worked as Director of Operations for a short sale education provider serving real estate and escrow agents. It was then that she witnessed first hand the many reasons people were upside down on their mortgages.
"It became my mission," Melissa said, "to help clients understand the home buying process, the fees associated with the process and to find the most suited home loan financing with fewer risk and more favorable terms."
With that, Melissa is constantly on the look out for her clients' best interest, looking for mortgage financing that works for them and educating them throughout the process. A consummate team player, she also helps other industry professionals succeed in their business.
Melissa and her husband Chris are proud, new parents to Amaya. Originally from Texas, Melissa is adjusting nicely to the island lifestyle. She enjoys hiking, paddle boarding, reading and spending time with friends and family.
