For some background on the interview, here’s a snippet from the Girlfunds article:
We’re honored to have 2020 HW Woman of Influence Kerry Melcher — a third-generation Realtor — on the Girlfunds podcast to discuss homeownership. With more than 33 years of experience in real estate, Melcher serves as head of sales and brokerage at Opendoor.
Melcher brings her passion for supporting women to reach their financial goals to the podcast, whether that’s how to encourage more women to take ownership of their finances or her unique advice on how she saved for college for her kids. And from her stance as a Realtor, this is also an engaging conversation on the powerful role that homeownership can play in building wealth.
For some added background on Melcher, she joined Opendoor as its director of business development, serving as general manager of the Phoenix area. Prior to Opendoor, Melcher owned a boutique real estate practice that specialized in Center City Phoenix real estate.
