From Rock to Real Estate
Legendary recording 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, creator 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, The Who, Supertramp, Alabama, Peter Cetera, Travis Tritt, Reba McIntyre, 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 with 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 Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage where true to form, Pat Melfi's aim is to be the top among new Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage agents. Due to his extensive contacts among the celebrity crowd, Melfi is expected to quickly surpass all others in high end homes listings, crowning him Utah's unparalleled Celebrity of Real Estate, as his reputation quickly spreads throughout the region, he is expected to immediately top that list as well.
