Melissa Lynn Galland

My passion for homebuilding dates back to early childhood when my father and uncle started up a construction company in California. After nearly two decades of marketing experience, I was honored to join the Adair Homes team in 2015. I am proud to promote our message of affordable quality homes so that even more future homeowners can realize their dream. Rooted in the PNW; you are likely to find me hiking, volunteering in my daughter's theater group, or curled up with a good book when I am not when I am not coordinating our advertising efforts or dreaming up creative concepts that might make the customer experience a little more enjoyable.

With almost 50 years of experience building custom homes in the Pacific Northwest, we know that financing is one of the steps new homeowners dread most. We also know that people come to us so they can get more home for their budget with our unique equity-building process. These are some of the reasons we have partnered with Alliance Financial and all of our branches now offer USDA single-close loans for qualified customers. Providing a financing solution that reduces loan costs and includes expenses that other loans do not means that even more people can build their dream homes with Adair.
