Real estate is so much more than Melody Paxton’s career choice: it’s a way she serves her community and it fills her with joy. Known as Seattle’s Real Estate Warrior, Melody is fearless in following her instincts and uses her voice to speak up and advocate for her clients at every opportunity. When meeting new clients, Melody likes to begin with a question: what would happen in your life if your broker understood your home in context of the building, neighborhood and future growth potential? What if they were an active member of the community that understood issues affecting your neighborhood? What if your broker had established relationships within the broker community built upon respected ethical standards?
Melody’s clients are at the heart of everything she does, and she aims to lift them up through her knowledge and expertise. Her tried and true process begins with a meeting to establish wants and needs, which she streamlines into an action plan for achieving their real estate dreams. Her method informs, tracks and monitors her clients from the first handshake to the final signature, wrapping them in a blanket of security and knowledge that allows for informed decision making throughout the entire process.
With a hands-on approach to every facet of the industry, Melody’s clients benefit from her creativity and tailored marketing plans, which complement her proven negotiation tactics. An avid learner, Melody frequently attends classes taught by real estate attorneys and experts on a range of topics from legal documents to lawsuits. She is also often found at community and input design meetings, lectures by financial experts and architects, or digging into the history of a building.
While Melody specializes in condominiums, she is equally passionate about helping buyers find a single-family home in the perfect neighborhood. She studies new development and updates in every Emerald City enclave, keeping her finger on the pulse of the market to effortlessly assist both local and incoming residents. Melody’s alignment with Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty begins with a desire to fulfill her real estate dreams. A connection to top-tier real estate agents from around the corner and around the world complements Melody’s local network of professionals, from lenders to building inspectors and movers, to flawlessly meet the needs of her clients.
When not in the office, Melody enjoys spending time in her Belltown condo and exploring the city with her husband Ben and their rescue dog Lyric. She is very active in the downtown community, attending city council, mayoral and organizational meetings to use her voice to speak up on behalf of the city’s 700,000+ residents. She is also passionate about animal rescue and is involved with two local organizations that support the cause. Prior to entering real estate, Melody earned a B.S. from Portland State University and an M.A. in Education from Leslie College. With a passion for service, Melody uses her background to provide creative solutions and forge a lifelong commitment to her clients and community.
