Deborah Oakley-Melvin grew up in Kailua. While a collectibles appraiser across the street from her father's Melvin Realty Company, she obtained her license when interest rates were a staggering 18%! After working as a journalist with Hawaii Business News and after graduate school, she continued as an appraiser and auctioneer in San Francisco, working as an editor in New York before returning home. Going back into real estate with ReMax Properties for over a decade on the Big Island and Oahu, she obtained the designations of Certified Residential Specialist, e-PRO, GREEN, Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource, and other certifications held by just a small percentage of agents. She has worked with a variety of non-profit organizations as a board member for over 20 years. Bridge Real Estate was a step into an innovative firm knowledgeable about development and Deborah brings experience, modern skills, a deep local knowledge and old fashioned service to her work with clients, projects and as principal broker.
