Melissa CentenoREALTOR is originally from Richmond, Virginia.   After graduating Emerson College with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in Boston, Massachusetts she moved to Los Angeles, California and landed a job at “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”  She worked on the show for over six years as a Production Assistant and then as the Music Coordinator.  In 1999 she moved to “Access Hollywood” to be a Music Segment Producer.

In 2001 she left the entertainment industry to marry and became a mom to two beautiful boys.
In between raising children, Melissa acquired her real estate license in October of 2005.  At first, her area of focus was in investment properties.  Now Melissa’s real estate expertise includes any type of real estate sales in California including listing, selling or leasing homes, condominiums, townhomes, commercial properties whether it be a standard sale, REO, or short sale.

Her experience working with high profile music artist and actors in the entertainment industry gives her the edge in maintaining client communication in negotiating contracts and coordinating transactions from inception to close of escrow.  She has the ability to make everyone feel like a star with discreet professionalism, even if you are just her neighbor down the street.

Melissa, not only are you the hardest working agent out there but you are an absolute pleasure to deal with and be around. You are honest, attentive, nurturing, knowledgeable, thorough....I could go on and on!!! Thank you for putting such care into selling our home, meeting all our needs and going above and beyond. Now let's find us a new home ;))



Melissa is the epitome of a first class realtor. She knows the market and is second to none with her work ethic. She will help you find the gem that you are looking for. I would recommend her to anyone.



Melissa is not only an extremely hard working and thorough agent but she is also an absolute pleasure to be around. She makes you feel confident every step of the way and often thinks of things that you haven't to make your sale/purchase as successful as possible.

Dearest Melissa, Brian and Jocelyn,
Although utterly exhausted we are thrilled beyond belief to finally be in our first home in the United States of America ... all because of the extraordinary efforts of each one of you!!! The words "Thank You" just don't seem near enough to adequate!  
The removalist worked hard in the heat yesterday to get everything to our new home so Leigh could take off this morning to NYC for 10 days, safe with the knowledge that we were officially in our new home! Although clearly, he is extremely disappointed that he gets to miss out on the unpacking! ;-) But then, someone's got to pay for the new mortgage! 
Thank you for going over, above and beyond the call of duty to make our dream of home ownership a reality! We are forever grateful and indebted to you for not only your professionalism and dedication but your patience, understanding and friendship. We simply could not have done this without you! If appropriate, we would love to write some reviews for each of you. By all means, please let us know the most appropriate forum for same. 
Oh and just for fun ... here is a happy snap from the weekend!!!!
Much Love,
The Hubners!
