The Role of Your Associate Broker
Selling your home is more than just a financial decision, it’s an emotional one. That’s why it’s so important to choose the right real estate representative… one who’s not just a “salesperson” but one who cares about you and your needs. In order to do this successfully, your full-service real estate representative must be:
• Your Marketing Manager
• Your Transaction Coordinator
• Your Community Consultant
• Your Property Specialist
• Your Experienced Negotiator
• Your Trusted Advisor
• Your Real Estate Professional
I have over 30 years of successful real estate experience helping buyers and sellers. I very much enjoy working with people to help them achieve their goals.

“To whom it may concern,
We would like to thank Mel Counts. We came from out of state looking to settle down in the Woodburn area. We contacted Mel because we were told he was the “Best of the Best”.
Mel exceeded our expectations. We were going to start a business in Woodburn and time was of the essence, we literally had to find a house and be moved within a month. We met with him on one day and told him what we were looking for etc. and left the next day back to Washington. After many emails and faxes back and forth, he was able to find us the perfect home. On top of that we were able to move in our home within the month time period we needed. He also went the extra mile and got us bids on our air conditioning and fencing. Wow what service!
Thanks Mel – you are the “Best of the Best” in our books also."
- Ed & Sheryl R.
I want to thank you for all the work you did to sell my place. You did a wonderful job.
Thanks a million,
“Mel was the very best!! We enjoyed the time spent with him viewing homes. He was extremely helpful in our selection of a home.
