MELANIE MEINKEN's Bio
Aloha! My name is Melanie Meinken.
I received my real estate license in 1979, working for many years with Conley Dew Realty on Oahu. I was a top producer and top listor on a consistent basis. Those were simpler times in real estate even though we dealt with consistently high interest rates.
In the mid-1990’s, I chose to stay home to raise and homeschool my three children. I returned full time to real estate in 2010 and hold designations in the Graduate Realtor Institute, Seniors Real Estate Specialist, Certified Residential Specialist, and Certified Negotiation Expert.
The relationship and trust with my clients is #1 for me. We work as a team to achieve their goals. We share the joys, laughs, sadness, and challenges along the way together. I handle the process and provide thorough information and options; they make the decisions.
There are never two days alike in real estate, so one simply cannot get bored! Life is a balance of strength with grace, courage with compassion. I enjoy the continual education, training, personal development, and adjustment to change that a real estate career requires. Real estate is now one of the most complex professions in America. It is fun and I thrive in it.
I am involved with my church, First Presbyterian at Koolau, and like reading, gardening, biking, and travel. I have been married to “Putter” since 1984 and we have three super “kids” born in 1986, 1988, and 1995. We live in Kailua on the Windward side of Oahu where I have a home office with three dogs at my side.
Prior to real estate, I worked in a famous showroom in Waikiki and taught elementary school at a few major private schools on Oahu. I was born and raised in Hanover, PA and graduated from college at Millersville State.

Melanie sold my 12 acre estate in Kahalu`u. She is a very thorough person and always gets you information in much more detailed level than you asked for. She works hard. We often communicated on-line in the middle of the night during our transaction!
Testimonial from D. and S. Larsen -- Apr 2018
Melanie helped us become acquainted with the Honolulu/Waikiki marketplace. We were considering purchasing a second home in HI to be near our two children who live in Waikiki. She provided us with excellent information on recent sales and suggested locations for buying based on our planned living style in HI. We found what we wanted to buy after just one day of looking. Melanie worked with the sellers and their agent to get us a fair price based on recent sales. Melanie coordinated with us to ensure we as buyers completed the numerous steps to closing on the property per the defined timeline. She provided thorough answers to our questions/concerns in a timely manner. We recommend Melanie for finding the right home here in Honolulu or all around Oahu at a fair price and completing the deal with no surprises.
Testimonial from D. C. -- Apr 2018
As a first-time home buyer, Melanie was very helpful in getting me through the purchase process from start to finish and beyond. Before I even started looking for properties, she was guiding me through the process. After the purchase, Melanie remained very resourceful and reachable to provide guidance on various aspects of home ownership. Whenever I have the opportunity, I would share what Melanie has done for me and it’s become clear that she goes above and beyond some other agents. I highly recommend her expertise!
