Ryan Melcher is a Monterey Peninsula based Realtor specializing in Carmel & Pebble Beach properties of distinction, and the luxury market of Monterey as a whole. Ryan and his team provide exceptional representation to buyers and sellers in the areas of Carmel, Pebble Beach, Carmel Valley and the Carmel Highlands, as well as the gated communities of the Santa Lucia Preserve, Tehama, Monterra, Bay Ridge & Pasadera, and the cities of Monterey and Pacific Grove.

Immersed in the entertainment business from a young age, Ryan was blessed with a very unique and special skill set.  He learned early on to care for a sophisticated and often sensitive clientele from his father, renowned music executive and record producer, Terry Melcher. Agents will tell you of their expertise, but few have Ryan’s local knowledge or network.

Ryan’s father brought his family to Carmel after falling in love with it during the production of the Monterey Pop Festival. His grandmother, actress Doris Day, also fell in love with it and moved here to escape the Hollywood limelight. In the 1980′s,  Ryan’s father and grandmother joined another local family in partnership in the Cypress Inn.  Ryan spent his afternoons at the Inn interacting with guests and their dogs, an activity which Ryan now attributes to his customer oriented style.

Today, Ryan derives his love for real estate, and hunger to succeed for clients, from nearly ten years experience managing and operating a full-service leasing and event company here in Carmel, and on the island of Martha’s Vineyard. His background equips Ryan with a broad range of experience in the field, and even a “trial by fire knowledge” of real estate law. In addition to handling each transaction and client with the utmost integrity, care and discretion, Ryan possesses an infectious passion for what he does, and believes the secret to success is hard work.

Ryan currently resides in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea. He looks forward to assisting old and new friends around the area with their real estate goals and dreams for many years to come.

Please Note: While more than delighted to respond to real estate related inquiries, Ryan asks that those with only a specific interest in any “celebrity” affiliations not contact him. Thank you for your cooperation.
