Growing up, Rick Melner had a father in the real estate business, so it’s no surprise that he became interested in real estate at a young age. After graduating from the University of Oregon, where he studied marketing and played on the National Champion Ultimate Frisbee team, he picked up his habit of methodical and process-driven practices. Rick worked for several large vacation ownership companies in executive marketing positions. During this time, despite lots of time spent traveling for work, he began to acquire and self-manage investment properties.
Since 2017, Rick’s endless energy has been focused on helping buyers and sellers as part of the Melner Group. His humor, level-headedness, strong integrative negotiating skills and competitive nature, work in favor of his clients. With years of experience as the owner of his own growing rental properties, Rick’s specialty is helping others buy or sell investment property.
Rick plays as hard as he works. Being surrounded by nature keeps him focused, so he spends his time snowboarding, surfing the Oregon Coast, mountain biking, playing Ultimate Frisbee and just exploring all that Central Oregon has to offer with his family. He also dedicates his time to coaching his 11-year-old triplet daughters’ basketball team and the Middle School and Varsity Summit High School Ultimate Frisbee teams.
His home: Rick lives on the east side of Awbrey Butte in a bright but cozy, open plan, ranch home with beautiful views and fabulous neighbors.
