Legendary music industry executive Pat Melfi has never been one to follow the beaten path, choosing instead to pave new ground in his varied and celebrated career. Following a marketing degree from the University of California Berkeley, his lengthy resume includes MCA Records Vice President, originator of Burger King's iconic Have it Your Way campaign, and preeminent recording artist, songwriter, record producer and concert promoter, for which he received an astounding five Concert Promoter of the Year Awards. In his career, Melfi has promoted, produced, managed and handled international concert tours for a Who's Who list of music industry icons: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Eagles, Elton John, Pink Floyd, Rod Stewart, Alabama, Peter Cetera, Carol King, James Taylor, Reba, Vince Gill, Meat Loaf and The Rolling Stones, to name just a few. His unparalleled list of achievements also includes promoting/producing well over 50 records reaching #1 on Billboard's charts.
In recent years however, Pat Melfi took a well deserved retirement in the majestic mountains of Park City, Utah... and quickly became bored with a sedentary life of retirement.
In his previous career, Melfi had naturally been involved in many successful real estate projects as far back as 1992 and beyond. He took note of the many real estate opportunities surrounding him throughout the Mountain West area, toying with the thought of reentering the world of real estate sales and development. But the recent rash of prominent entertainment industry deaths of those we would call legends, but whom Pat Melfi calls friends, helped him redirect his priorities. He reactivated his real estate license and jumped back into the business of actively living.
"It was a natural extension of what I'd always done," says Melfi. "The whole music industry is nothing more or less than connecting artists, or sellers, with customers, or buyers. As the promoter, I'm merely acting as the agent. So I did my homework; I wanted to find the best agency in the country to work with."
That research led him straight to top-ranked Keller Williams where true to form, Pat Melfi's aim is to the top among new Keller Williams agents. Due to his extensive contacts among the celebrity crowd, Melfi is expected to instantly surpass all others in high end homes listings, crowning him Utah's unparalleled Celebrity of Real Estate. Yet he has also made a conscious effort to be accessible to buyers and sellers of even the most modest homes and, as his reputation quickly spreads throughout the region, is expected to immediately top that list as well.
"We're honored to welcome Pat Melfi to the Keller Williams family and expect him to be our top agent in all areas in no time, shattering all previous records," said a representative of Keller Williams. "I've never before seen anyone in this business with the professional assets, work ethic and real estate IQ that Pat Melfi brings to the table. It's a privilege to have him on board..."Klair Gunn, Broker. Pat Melfi can be reached at 435-731-5100, 801-792-6970 or by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
