Getting to know Melissa Albright

As a longtime Bend resident and entrepreneur, it is my pleasure to serve you as a licensed broker with Harcourts The Garner Group Real Estate.
I specialize in the sale of new and existing homes across Central Oregon. Whether you’re purchasing your first home or want to build the vacation home of your dreams, I will listen closely to your needs and work by your side to help you achieve your goals. You can count on me to be extremely knowledgeable about the
local housing market, from legal and contracting issues to financing and building codes. Throughout the process, I will work to help find the right home at the right price to meet your needs.

I am known for providing outstanding customer service, paying attention to every detail, and building close relationships and connecting people. My diverse business experience includes opening and running restaurants, owning a coffee shop, teaching preschool, and managing my own business in Bend. All those efforts have helped me become a better broker for you—one with extremely strong connections across the community, excellent marketing and negotiating skills, and an understanding of the need to go the extra mile to earn your trust.
Like many of you, I moved to Bend because of the high quality of life, the exceptional schools, and the incomparable access to outdoor recreation opportunities. My two sons attended and played sports at local schools, and were active with Bend Parks & Recreation. My husband, Mike Albright, is a professional photographer and an avid community supporter. We are all avid skiers, hikers, and mountain bikers.
