Melissa Howe

Melissa Howe’s natural talent for building relationships and going above and beyond for her clients has garnered her a loyal following and a glowing reputation across Arizona.

Specializing in relocations and second homes in Scottsdale and Northeast Valley, Melissa brings an astute understanding of the local market and large-scale successes to her role with Kelli Grant Group.

Hello, I’m Melissa Howe

Let’s talk!

“A large part of my role is educating out-of-town buyers about Phoenix and our real estate market and providing resources to help make their transition as easy as possible while they are selling a home, buying a home, moving their families and starting a new job,” says Melissa, whose own mother was a top real estate agent for over 30 years. “It is in my blood—I have always loved real estate.”

Prior to her career in real estate, Melissa served as a concierge manager at the Hyatt Scottsdale, regularly handling all manner of client requests. After obtaining her license, Melissa served as an assistant for a number of Scottsdale’s top-producing local agents for more than a decade, learning key skills first-hand from some of the best in the business. In 2012, Melissa joined the Kelli Grant Group and began making her mark on the local real estate scene.

In her spare time, Melissa volunteers as a “Big Sister” with Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, a role she has held since 2013. A tireless community supporter, Melissa also supports the Phoenix Children’s Hospital and served as tour director for the Heart of Scottsdale tour, where she helps set up the event for local agents to showcase their new listings for sale.
