Print Agent Bio

Melody Nichols' mission as a broker is to create an enjoyable experience for her clients, with as much ease as possible. Melody has 13 years of customer service experience from working in the hospitality industry in Portland’s entertainment district. Melody quickly advanced in her career to become the Director of Public Relations. Her transition to a career in real estate was fueled by the desire to help clients through buying or selling a home, so they can more quickly get settled and start making memories. 

Melody was born and raised in Sandy, OR and then moved to Kirkland, WA to attend Northwest College. Before moving back to Oregon, Melody worked as the personal assistant for the Black Eyed Peas when she lived in Los Angeles. When Melody isn’t spending time with her family, she can be found attending art shows, concerts, enjoying the outdoors or performing with her band. 

As someone who takes incredible pride in living in the Pacific Northwest, Melody is excited to share this passion with her clients. Melody looks forward to building new relationships and learning about her client’s needs, so she can exceed their real estate expectations.

In such a competitive buyer's market, it's no easy task to find your dream home. With a baby on the way, we knew it was time to get to work and find ours. Melody was 100% on board with helping us make this happen from day one. After our initial meeting to discuss our wishes, she knew exactly what we were looking for and was ready and available to show us any house we were interested in. We were one of the lucky ones that quickly found the exact home we were hoping for AND our offer was accepted! At this point, I thought most of the hard work was finished. I of course was wrong. This is where Melody really stepped it up. Loans, home inspections, contractors, contract negotiations, piles of paperwork and a client that had a million questions (that's me!). She was on top of it all. She had all the references to make everything happen and by the time I was moving in, there was no doubt in my mind that I purchased a great piece of property in a family-friendly neighborhood. I couldn't possibly think of anything that Melody could've done better. She's the best!

Working with Melody has been an amazing positive experience. She listened to what we were looking for and helped keep us positive during the process of house hunting in this insane market. She constantly had printouts of the house details for us to take home. Always attentive and told us about the hidden details of the house and property, also looking into anything further that we wanted to know. I would also like to highlight her attention to Covid protocols. She always provided my husband and I our own little package of numerous gloves, boot covers, and masks for EACH HOUSE. We saw other realtors and their clients who were entering empty but occupied houses without any Covid precautions. Seeing how important following mandatory safe Covid precautions was to her made us feel more safe. Overall great experience, she helped find us our forever home and we will definitely be recommending her.

Melody Nichols. There is such a long list of wonderful things to say about her. First, she really listens to you and goes above and beyond to help you find exactly what you're looking for. Constantly keeping you informed of every movement of your purchase, no matter how early or late in the day. Melody genuinely cares about the people she works for with an enthusiastic upbeat attitude, but most important, when you need it, she's the toughest dog in the fight. Our opportunity to work with Melody to find our dream home was amazing. I wish we could give her more than 5 stars. A universe of stars wouldn't be enough. Melissa Wright, Estacada OR.

Melody was an amazing agent. She was patient and on point. She went to over 50 houses with me which extended for over a year. I had very specific requirements including acreage, that was fenced properly and had outbuildings prepared for my livestock to be moved upon closing. The location was also an issue as to avoid a long commute to work. Plus I had my heart set on having a creek on the property, so It was extremely difficult to meet my needs, both inside and outside the home. Yet she was always punctual with phone calls, emails and viewings. The house I bought we viewed 3 times before I could make a decision. And when that time finally came Melody was in Hawaii visiting family but still made me a priority and not only wrote the deal there but was constantly on call from both ends. I am extremely grateful and exhilarated by the entire experience.

You were SO good at the whole process I truly felt as though you were our champion, fighting for us in the tournament of home ownership! :) There are so many facets and pitfalls, avenues and detours... and you helped us through every one! You were 110% there and accessible with answers to every question. You provided us with problem solving solutions and a calm reassurance that everything was going to work out. And look....it did! :) You're the best.

Melody went above and beyond to work with my abnormal, in and out of town, work schedule. Being that I am out of town on work a lot, it took a while to find what I was looking for, and Melody always approached each new viewing with a positive attitude and no pressure. She set a high expectation which she met with flying colors, and delivered great customer service during the home looking and buying process. She asked meaningful questions about what I was looking for in a home, and put that information to good use when sending me house listings to look at that matched what I was interested in. I looked for over 2 years until I finally found the home I wanted! In that span of time we went through so many different experiences in my home buying process! I bidded on a house and got accepted, then got the inspection and it showed some unsavory things about the house, so I then pulled my bid based off that inspection. I got an accepted bid on one house I wanted, and then another seller accepted me as a backup offer. That put me between a rock and hard spot as I wanted both, and Melody coached me into making the right decision of the two. Melody was a great communicator during the whole process. She always came to each home viewing prepared with information on the home we were looking at. When I finally found my home and it came time to do the paperwork, she made it seamless. With my hectic schedule we were able to do everything online. I only had to show up in person for the signing of all the documents at the closing. All the other documents that needed signing we were able to do by docusign online. This made the process so much easier. I would most definitely go through her again if I decide to sell my current home, or buy more properties!

If I had to put into one word my personal experience with realtor Melody Nichols I would say PERFECTION. I know that seems odd considering no transaction is perfect. Melody was consistently professional. She went above and beyond what a realtor should do. Including, helping us move large logs out of our grass so we could get the job done faster! If there was a problem, Melody always came up with a solution and handled herself professionally. She has a plethora of resources and is, herself, a vital resource. Melody was quick about getting responses from others involved in the transaction and always kept us in the loop! Melody worked hard to get our family everything we wanted/deserved from our transaction….and then some. Would I use Melody again? WITHOUT a doubt. I would call her first. I would strongly recommend her to any of my friends, co-workers and loved ones. Melody is the essence of trustworthy. In this day and age you can never be too careful of who has your best interests at heart and who is just out for a paycheck. I can assure you that Melody truly cares for her clients “best interests” and it shows in the work she does for you. We are so grateful that she was our realtor!!!
