Melissa Urena, JohnHart Real Estate

Melissa Urena


Melissa Urena comes to JohnHart with a diverse background of experience and a loyal following of clients who stand by her work. After receiving her Bachelor’s degree in English from the University of California at Santa Barbara, Melissa sought a career in journalism, first interning with Emmis Communications where she worked for the media conglomerate that also owns 'Los Angeles Magazine' and 'Power 106 FM'. 

A combination of her knack for connecting with folks across cultural and generational lines, along with a natural inclination to want to be out in the field making things happen, led her to a career in advertisement sales. She quickly moved through the ranks beginning with a Sales Associate position with media giant Univision, and then on to become an Account Executive with a local television station that was broadcasting 'MTV Tr3s.' While she achieved much success in these roles, she felt the need to devote her time and energy towards helping clients acquire something more meaningful than ad space.

Melissa was born and raised in Los Angeles. However, she didn’t truly appreciate the diversity in geography and culture the city has to offer until after she traveled to six continents and over fifteen countries. Upon realizing that she would do best helping others discover the gem that is L.A, she decided that the most fitting career was real estate!

She quickly obtained her real estate license and hit the ground running. Within her first year in the industry, she was honored as the top salesperson in her office! 

Because she will take the stress and fear out of your first purchase, and get you the most amount of cash on your current property so you can move on to your DREAM home, you'll be sure to refer her.

Call Melissa today if you're ready to buy or sell!
