Growing up in Tucson, Melinda Eslinger is a true Arizona native with a strong background in teaching and small business ownership. She launched her career in Marketing directly out of college after graduating from NAU with a BA degree in advertising. Recognizing her passion for teaching, Melinda subsequently went on to receive her master's in secondary education and taught Language Arts at the high school level.
"I chose a career in real estate because I know firsthand what it's like to feel lost during the process. A little bit of guidance goes a long way in easing any potential frustration that can arise while buying or selling a home. To that end, I leverage my strong organization skills to keep my clients abreast of what's happening the process every step of the way. I use a tried-and-tested checklist system that ensures my clients receive weekly updates, ensuring that they're never left hanging.
As a former English teacher, I am passionate about improvement, development, and refinement, whether it's personal or professional. I have my sights set on raising the bar in real estate on a structural level. To that end, I serve on several boards with the AAR (Arizona Association of REALTORS®), create and teach continuing education classes around the state, and proactively research methods for improving my own process wherever possible. As the owner and designated broker for my company, I take my responsibility to guide my agents and clients very seriously. With the GRI (Graduate, REALTOR® Institute), CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), and SFR (Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource Certification) designations, I am knowledgeable about all aspects of the real estate process.
Outside of work, my priority is spending time with my husband, Greg, my sons, Austin and Drew, and my resident fur angel/Golden Retriever, Oliver. I also enjoy traveling, playing competitive tennis, diving, and—when my muscles are spent—painting.
Having lived in Arizona my entire life, I know this city inside and out. We are blessed with incredible natural beauty and diverse cultural influences that have made Phoenix a vibrant destination for art, food, and entertainment. As a Long Realty franchise owner, it is my (and by extension, my team's) mission to help you get the most out of your life in this city.
