About Melissa Urena and Associates

Melissa Urena & Associates is a growing and dynamic group of Realtors dedicated to the person behind the property. We help buyers and sellers negotiate the parts of a real estate transaction that cannot be tackled through a website or a phone app. As part of the JohnHart Real Estate brokerage, we count on over 10 offices in Southern California from the Antelope Valley down to Long Beach. We go where our clients' needs take us, but we truly shine in the South East LA, South Bay and Long Beach markets where we have been helping move-up buyers leverage the equity of starter properties into dream homes! We also have extensive knowledge helping investors make the most of the opportunities available in the rapidly changing communities of Compton and South Central L.A.


About George Fernandez

I’m a native Angelino who grew up in the family business of classic and custom cars. I learned early on about the importance of customer service and working with a client to deliver exactly what they are imagining. It’s critical to listen to a client’s needs so as a real estate professional I can translate and help them acquire their vision of a perfect home.

Every client and house are unique. My role is working tirelessly in matching them to each other. As a Real Estate Professional, I found many of the same pillars that act as the foundation in the car building business are found in real estate; creating a relationship with the client, clear communication and personal attention as well as working within a budget.

My work has taken me through many Los Angeles neighborhoods over the years. This has provided me with a sharpened eye for visualizing the potential in a property, enabling me to find creative solutions for my clients.

I understand that buying or selling real estate can be exciting, yet stressful at times. When you are looking to sell your home, buy or lease residential and commercial property, as your Realtor®, my commitment is to make the transaction seamless and trouble free.


About Juan Castro

Juan grew up in the San Fernando Valley, and after a short stay in New York, he is now a proud resident of Long Beach, CA. He graduated from UCLA with a degree in Applied Mathematics with an emphasis in Economics. Juan worked briefly with American Financial helping consumers evaluate purchase and refinance products. In 2016, he co-founded the real estate team “Melissa Urena & Associates” with his business partner and fiancée, Melissa Urena.

A cycling enthusiast, he has completed the AIDS lifecycle ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles, a two-week tour of Oregon by bike, and is now training to complete the New York Century ride. Juan has a deep appreciation for film, classic rock, and his madden league!

About Michele Baca Lopez

Michele brings over 16 years of real estate experience to the team “Melissa Urena & Associates.” Having grown up in Carson, graduated from Torrance High, with family ties in Wilmington, and now living in Long Beach, she is uniquely suited to service buyers and sellers in the South Bay and surrounding communities.

Michele trained professionally as an ice-skater and that cardio conditioning shows! She is a full time real estate agent, mother of three beautiful children, and guardian of two full grown Rottweilers. You’ll always catch her on the go, wearing a genuine smile.

She wants her future clients to know that she’s a professional that strives for excellence. In her own words: “I love helping people achieve their dreams. I have the heart of a servant. As your agent, I will handle your transaction with the utter most dedication and care.”


About Roxana Arteaga

Servicing all your Real Estate needs for Long Beach, Tustin, North Tustin, Anaheim, Costa Mesa, Orange, Santa Ana, Huntington Beach, Garden Grove and Fountain Valley.

Whether you are looking to buy, sell, lease or invest in a home I will gladly walk you through the process from beginning to end. My goal is to deliver transparency, resourcefulness, and most importantly consistent communication as needed. My priority is always my clients and I never shy away from negotiating for their desired goals!

Fun Fact about me: In the past ten years, I’ve never lived in the same residence for more than a year. The irony right! Needless to say, I’ve lived almost all over California and gained great insight for the cities I serve. Southern California stole my heart. I absolutely love it here for endless reasons. One minute you can be hiking a trail, and a few minutes later surfing a wave at the nearest beach. Mother nature never disappoints the residents of Southern California.
