Family, home and community have been central to Beth and Rick and it’s those grounding principles that help them every day in their craft.
Let’s start with a little bit about them.…
Beth grew up in Wisconsin with a large family where so many fond memories were formed and midwestern values were instilled. Rick on the other hand, is a native Oregonian, growing up in the heart of Ducklandia, otherwise known as Eugene.
After a few years of dating and being foot-loose and fancy-free, they started their family and had two sons, Max and Evan. They survived toddler-hood and debated on adding one more to their brood. Beth soon got pregnant and while they were at a routine ultrasound appt., they learned that they weren’t just having ONE healthy baby --- they had triplets on the way! Excitement was building as they still didn’t know the sex of the babies. Soon, Danika, Taylor and Maya arrived safely into this world and tipped the scale from male to female in the Melner household.
With their family-first mentality and practical nature, they packed up the kids and headed East to Wisconsin in 2010 to be close to family. Those were deeply meaningful and formative years for the kids and it’s also where Beth kicked off her real estate career. However, opportunity knocked, as well as their desire to land back in the Pacific NW, where the mountains, ocean and temperate climate affords endless opportunities to experience the outdoors. In 2015, they returned to Oregon and had the fortune of calling Bend home.
Staying true to their family-first values, Beth desired a career that would allow for flexibility to balance home and professional demands, and saw incredible potential in real estate. The combination of Rick’s 20+ years in Marketing and Beth’s 15+ years in buying, selling and property management, have proven to be a powerful and successful dynamic.
In a few short years since starting their endeavors in Bend, the Melner Group is ranked #2 in sales volume for Bend office of Stellar Realty NW. Beth and Rick have taken pride in helping so many families find that perfect home ----- truly one of the most important investments in our lives. They possess a command for negotiating and navigating competitive markets and listen intently to understand their clients’ needs. Most importantly, they treat each client as an individual versus a transaction. And in lots of cases, have developed long-standing clients & friendships.
