About Melissa

I’m Melissa Donahue, and I’m a senior mortgage consultant with more than 20 years’ experience in the finance industry. I understand the ever-changing mortgage industry and have a great wealth of knowledge in regard to a wide array of loan programs. That foundational knowledge – combined with my excellent communication and problem-solving skills – is what allows me to help my clients successfully close on time.

If you choose me as your mortgage consultant, you’ll find I am dedicated to you, your mortgage needs and ensuring an easy, stress-free loan process. Please contact me via email, phone or text message to get started on your mortgage today.

I am dedicated to my clients’ mortgage needs: finding the very best possible loan program and interest rate and ensuring a smooth loan process. My clients can expect to receive excellent communication from me and my team. I take great pride in being available to my clients any time of the day or night.

I am part of a team-The Lee Donahue Team, with Jim Lee, Senior Mortgage Consultant with On Q Financial, LLC. We have a synergistic approach to matching the solution to the need. The partnership methodology delivers improved client communications, increased availability, and creative solutions based on the combined experience of Donahue and Lee.

I received a B.A. degree in Communication from Arizona State University. My degree has proven to be a great asset to me as a mortgage consultant. My open, responsive communication is invaluable to all parties involved in mortgage transactions, enabling me to provide information to borrowers and related parties regarding loan options and market conditions and to resolve issues necessary to close residential real estate loans.

With over two decades in the finance industry, my vast experience coupled with my passion for communication and my commitment to my clients has generated huge success. Not only have I been able to help hundreds of families achieve the dream of homeownership, but I have developed trusting relationships with local realtors and builders. I am proud to be a lender partner for Cachet Homes.

I was born and raised in Burlington, Vermont and am the youngest of five siblings. I moved to Arizona to attend Arizona State University and have made Scottsdale my permanent home for the past 25 years. I am a single mother of three beautiful daughters.

I have never met such a incompetent group of people. Very disorganized, don't know how to add, subtract, multiply. Closing should've only lasted 45 minutes and ended up lasting almost 3 hours all because they forgot to put my condo in my Trust when they had a copy of my WILL from day one. They kept blaming my insurance agent for not completing paperwork when they had it all along; it was sitting in their SPAM folder. They never admitted to their errors, but was always willing to put the blame on the client. Very rude and disorganized.

I just wanted to take a moment to express my deepest gratitude for all the time Melissa and her team did in helping us close on our new home. Words cannot adequately convey how impressed and grateful I am for her exceptional service and dedication throughout the entire process. I am beyond thrilled with the outcome, thanks to your expertise and dedication. I cannot express enough how grateful I am for your hard work, guidance. You and your team made this a wonderful experience!

I never worry when Melissa is the Loan Officer for buyers. She is a seasoned professional, a timely communicator and gets it closed. Even the challenges Elissa will take on and work hard to source a solution. I highly recommend Melissa for your lending needs.
