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, Inc.. 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.

Dealing with a military transition from one state to another isn't their strong suit. Understood, it's a nice size transaction but a simple phone call possibly could've resolved a lot of confusion. I really don't have an issue with the individuals, just the process. I've witness worse communication though, I'm in the military.
