Meet the Team
Melissa Steele – CalBRE#01951324
Melissa has always been a “jack of all trades” and entrepreneur, starting her first company at age ten. She’s come a long way from those days, having played a part in not only her own companies’ successes, but a variety of other start-ups, as well. Having purchased her first home at age 21, Melissa has always had a passion for real estate and investing and after purchasing four additional properties as investments before the age of 25, Melissa was excited to explore a career in Real Estate.
In 2015, just weeks after their marriage, Melissa and her husband John co-founded their business Steele San Diego Homes, Inc. Melissa and John are committed to providing their clients with a different and FUN, service-based, technology-driven, real estate experience. In her free time Melissa enjoys snuggling her cat Boots, soaking up the sun on the beach, spending time with friends and family, and coloring!
John Steele – CalBRE#01950588
John got his start in the real estate industry as an assistant helping out other agents with their business. Being one of the younger team members in the office and having a strong grasp of computers and technology, John quickly found himself as the go-to person for things like websites, landing pages, social media and online marketing. After about a year, John was eager to learn more and joined one of San Diego’s biggest and most notable real estate re-developers to assist them in their day to day operations.
Here, John was able to learn an incredible amount of knowledge as he was involved in various aspects of over 100+ real estate projects. Soaking up as much information as he could, John soon realized that it was time to step out on his own. Having always been very calculated and analytical, and after working in the industry for a few years, John saw an incredible amount of opportunity and room for improvement and in 2015 started Steele San Diego Homes, Inc. with Melissa. While John has truly found a passion in real estate, he also enjoys spending time with friends and family, staying active and enjoying San Diego’s amazing weather, reading, self development, and video games.
Lauren Sayeski – CalBRE#02047789
A passion for real estate started at a young age for Lauren starting with watching her grandparents maintain and manage rental units in the LA area. At thirteen, she was making her mom rent a steamer to remove wallpaper so she could repaint the family bathroom.
At twenty-one, Lauren and her husband purchased and began managing their first rental property in Washington State. When her husband got new orders in 2014 they were off to San Diego. Lately, she has worked in HOA property management and renovated a single family home in La Mesa while obtaining her Real Estate License.
When she isn’t working, Lauren is rescuing and loving on animals, hiking, or off on an adventure! Lauren is extremely grateful for the ability to put her passion to work for the Team, and the Clients we have the honor of serving.
Jordan was born in Hawaii but lived in San Diego for most of her life. While attending Northern Arizona University, she studied Hotel and Restaurant Management with a minor in Business Administration. During her courses, Jordan found a love for organization, management, and customer service. While restaurant management wasn’t the right career path for Jordan, she found her passion for real estate early on. Her mother, who worked in real estate most of her life, connected her with an amazing home renovation company, CT Homes. Not only did Jordan love the fast-paced learning environment, one of her favorite aspects was the motivated, professional, young individuals she had the opportunity of working with. One of those young aspiring individuals was John Steele. Jordan enjoyed working with John and even took over his position when he left the company to pursue his dream as a full-time real estate agent. As Jordan grew within her role at CT, she watched John and his wife Melissa grow their own business and expand full force on their real estate dream.
When Jordan’s husband Stephen received military orders to move to North Carolina, it felt like the perfect time for Jordan to transition into working with the Steele Team remotely as their Client Relationship Manager! While most of Jordan’s actions are behind the scenes, she’s been with the team the longest and has always been a staple of their business. While Melissa jokes that Jordan is the “wind beneath their wings”, it’s no laughing matter the level of service that Jordan consistently provides to our team and our clients.
