Melissa Clarke brings calm, flexibility, organization – and some fresh ideas – to her new business, Paragon Property Management.

A native of Idaho, Clarke and her family moved to Brookings a year and a half ago.

For about seven months, Clarke worked with former owner Marcia Alford, to be sure that property management was what she wanted to do.

With Oregon certification to be a property manager, in hand, Clarke took over the business in April.

As a property manager, she helps homeowners keep tabs when they have renters in their homes. Her packages for management include drive-by checks, maintenance, rent collecting and paying utilities.

In addition, for owners who don't want to rent out their property, services include "storm checks" and reports on the condition of the homes.

She has a "great housekeeping staff and an excellent handyman," who, she said she would "trust with my life."

A new feature has been added to her property management, "a light, refreshing cleaning of the inside of the homes in preparation of an owner's return," she explained.

Clarke brings to the job the experience of taking care of rentals for her parents.

"I'm a people person," she said. "Property management is something I like doing; it fits my life and my family's needs."

For information, phone Clarke at (541) 412-7995. Paragon Property Management is located in Brookings at 1240 Chetco Ave., Suite C.
