Orpha Ruth Melecio, Broker
Orpha Palomares, Realtor
Orpha Ruth Melecio got into the real estate business 21 years ago and inspired her daughter, Orpha, to follow suit. Now this mother-daughter duo is one of Houston’s top-producing real estate teams, having received the Houston Business Journal’s Fast 100 award in 2020, as well as being one of HAR’s top-producing Realtor teams for several years in a row now.
Previously a nurse, Orpha Ruth has traveled a path to real estate similar to that of many in the business. When purchasing her home, she found that the Realtor she hired made such a good impression that she decided real estate was the business for her. The success Orpha Ruth found over the years subsequently inspired her daughter to leave corporate America and ignite the family business with her background in public relations and marketing.
Many of their clients come to them after previous brokerages let them down, they share, noting with pride that their firm has given these new clients the individual attention they deserved. Born and raised in Houston, Orpha Jr. is well-versed in all things Houston and offers a unique perspective that helps their clients in their purchase. The pair uses social media to stay engaged with clients and to host events where they educate the community on finances and credit. The two see their firm as both a business and a community asset.
Specializing in first-time buyers and sellers in all areas of Houston, they have a business style that’s fast and easy, and they ask a lot of questions to make sure they’re clear on clients’ real estate goals. The two love dancing on TikTok, investing and overseeing their first new developments in Livingston.
