Melissa Carrasco

VP/Commercial Real Estate Banker

What I appreciate most about working at Bell is the culture is top-notch and unmatched. Most places talk about culture, but Bell exudes it. The people here are all incredible.

In my position, I originate and manage commercial real estate loans for a variety of industry sectors with a property focus including industrial, self-storage, retail, multifamily, medical and office properties. My goal is to provide the lending services clients’ need and become their trusted banker. I enjoy the different nuances that come with each deal and the constant challenge of being creative. Fostering relationships is also very important and truly caring about my clients is what sets me apart.

Originally from Yuma, Ariz., I started in banking in 1997 while in high school. I earned an associate’s degree from Arizona Western College in Yuma. Along the way, I have been named 2022 Fundraiser of the Year by H3 Phoenix, 2019 Junior Achievement Golfer’s Dream Day third top fundraiser and a President’s Club member in 2019.

My husband, Gerry, and I live in Scottsdale, Ariz., and have 1 son. Outside of work, I enjoy spending quality time with my husband and son, working out at Orangetheory Fitness, beach vacations, golf, Marvel movies and playing Wordle. I am also active in the leadership group, H3 Phoenix, which develops lifelong servant leaders through group discussions, speaking events and raising money for community organizations.
