Kerry Melcher

As a third-generation Realtor, Kerry Melcher was born into the real estate industry.

Now, with more than 33 years of experience in real estate, Melcher plays an integral role as head of sales and brokerage at Opendoor. She joined Opendoor as its director of business development, and served as general manager of Phoenix. She was also instrumental in growing Opendoor’s team in the region, doubling office space in Scottsdale and nearly doubling staff – all while helping agents and brokers learn how Opendoor could help them better serve their customers. Prior to Opendoor, Melcher owned a boutique real estate practice that specialized in Center City Phoenix real estate. She took on several leadership roles outside her practice to help strengthen her local real estate community. Melcher was appointed the director and president of the Phoenix Association of Realtors, before joining Arizona Regional Multiple Listing Service as a director of MLS strategy. At ARMLS she ran product, marketing, licensing, support and strategy. She also served as chairman of the board. Melcher played an integral role in helping develop the Opendoor Agent Partner Program – a program that provides agents high-quality referrals, and helps them provide more certainty for their clients.
