During my nine years at KeyBank I have partnered with the emerging affluent to achieve their financial goals. In the last few years I have concentrated my efforts on those individuals within the medical profession. Because of our one of a kind mortgage product we have become a preferred financial institution for medical professionals.  As a community bank, one of my main priorities over the last nine years is to serve the needs of our area, specifically assisting the emerging affluent medical professionals.  Our loan designed with the Doctor in our community in mind has allowed us to become the preferred financial institution for MDs.

  • Conventional loan rates
  • Loans up to $1 Million
  • No Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI)
  • Personalized service
  • Maximum 90% loan to value or combined loan to value
  • Owner occupied purchase or rate and term refinance
  • Specializing in loans for both new and established doctors

KeyBank also offers jumbo mortgages up to $3.5 million, and our exclusive GoldKey program, which allows asset depletion for additional qualifying income. Your mortgage can be a vital element of any wealth management plan. Let us help you achieve your goals with appropriate credit/loan solutions.

She exhibited a high level of professionalism and expertise by handling paperwork, contractors and repairs with confidence and ease.

She really knows what she is doing and knows how to make the whole process go smoothly with very little effort on our part.

We have sold two homes and bought one through Liz Slager with Coldwell Banker.  She has a way of making these difficult decisions seamless and painless.  We could not be more pleased with our experiences.  To that end, we have referred a number of friends and colleagues to Liz and recommend her without reservation.

Melanie Bowers, GRI

Helping people is not a new experience for me. I spent many years in the medical field as a nurse and pediatric nurse practitioner before becoming a Realtor. I enjoy helping and serving others. Moving often, I know first-hand what it is like to be the new guy in town. I take the time my clients need to help each buyer find their perfect home and the neighborhood that is right for them. I sell real estate in all price ranges and areas of the Salt Lake Valley from downtown condos to mountain retreats and am a strong negotiator on my client’s behalf.

I have a son in the residency program at the University so working with other residents I understand the value of their “free” time. I make the buying or selling process as smooth, proactive and problem free as possible. I understand that second to your education, your home is your best investment.  Good luck on match day!

As a wife, mother, friend and grandmother I know that home is where we make our memories, rest our heads and share our dreams. Please do not hesitate to give me a call to assist you in finding or selling your next home.

“Melanie was very professional, knowledgeable, trustworthy, easy to work with and always available. She made an otherwise scary and stressful venture easier to manage. She held our hand through all aspects of the house buying process. We only had two days to find a home and she was well prepared and available. Melanie went above and beyond to meet inspectors and attend to other needs that we could not, as we lived out of town. Melanie covered all the bases, watched out for our interests, and was by our side from the beginning of our search to the day we signed the escrow papers. We have never before experienced such wonderful treatment.”

Christian & Brooke, Third year resident at University of Utah

Mel Bowers was wonderful to work with.  She came highly recommended to us by friends and we are so greatful to have worked with her during the stressful process of selling our home.  Not only is Mel extremely knowledgable, but I know she always has her client’s best interests at heart.  She constantly kept us up to date and in the loop, and if needed, she was always available.  Her attitude and personality is always so positive and friendly; I felt like I could call her any time of the day or night ( and I did ).  Her expertise and guidance proved invaluable during the closing process.  We are so thankful to have worked with Mel.  Mel is now a wonderful friend of ours and we trust her like family.  Mel gets our highest recommendation.
