Willis Allen welcomes new Realtor, Melissa Mate, in La Jolla

Melissa Mate has joined Willis Allen Real Estate in La Jolla. Mate is a seasoned Realtor who spent the last several years in new home sales and short sales, which she says gives her a significant understanding of how homes are built and current construction codes.

“You have to do all of the real estate forms and process as part of the short sale process, so I have touched a lot of files and cleaned up a lot of messes!” Mate said. “This gives me a slightly different perspective on lending than other agents who have not had these experiences.”

Mate said being able to help her clients close on short sales was one of the biggest achievements of her career.

“I have witnessed grown men cry during the short sale process,” she said. “The weight of a mortgage after a job loss or an illness has a tremendous negative effect on people, and being able to help remove that burden has been a joy.”

Mate said Willis Allen’s reputation for integrity in luxury real estate was just one of the many factors that drew her to the company. “Being with Willis Allen carries a level of respect in the community that makes me incredibly proud to be a part of this team. Also, the family feel of the office is so wonderful! I have been overwhelmed by the kindness and support I’ve been shown in just the short time I’ve been on board.”

To reach Mate, call (858) 242-2468 or e-mail melissa@willisallen.com
