CEO of Integrity
As Founder and President, Melynn K. Wakeman says her company name speaks volumes about who she is. “When I say that I will serve you with integrity, I mean it.”
In leading Wakeman Integrity LLC, Melynn has realized success in the industry based on her vast and diverse healthcare business background, as well as her impeccable reputation. A 14-year industry leader, she is a well-respected commercial real estate sales professional, consultant, business developer and operations.
Melynn is the Designated Broker for Wakeman Integrity, which specializes in healthcare commercial real estate. As the founder and president of a woman-owned commercial real estate brokerage firm, she bucked the trend of cutting back during the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, she grew her company in 2020 with the addition of two brokers and a team of IT, marketing, website, legal and accounting consultants.
The growth of Wakeman Integrity is a direct result of the firm’s commitment to its core values. They include:

Something people don’t know about her: “I was the first girl to play football on my junior high team and scored the first touchdown of the season.”
Best business advice she’s been given: “Don’t look at the entire magnitude of a problem. Rather, dissect it by focusing on one small task at a time until the problem is solved.”
Best business advice to share: “If you have a dream, get up and go do it instead of sitting and just thinking about it. Just do it.”
Kristin has forged a strong reputation of successfully building business relationships. She has drawn that extensive experience from working for hospitals, treatment centers, senior care and living and start-up healthcare offices.
This has also allowed her to gain an understanding of the healthcare daily operation inside and out. She leverages that knowledge to be an efficient healthcare “business property matchmaker,” finding a perfect match property for a provider group or by listing properties and matching buyer/users by understanding their business needs and vision.
In her role of Commercial and Residential Sales Specialist for Wakeman Integrity, Kristin assists with the purchase/sale/lease of special use residential and commercial properties. A native of San Francisco, Kristin has been a licensed Arizona Realtor since 2013.Away from the office, Kristin enjoys community engagement.

Kristin supports first responder agencies and participates in employee assistance wellness programs. She also enjoys any outdoor activity.
Best business advice she’s been given: “If you can dream it, you can do it.” (Walt Disney)Best business advice to share: “Leverage your relationships. Anything is possible when you put out to your network what connection or information you may need. Everyone knows someone and that someone could be who you may be looking for. No matter how high in the stars the ask may be, put it out there and you will be pleasantly surprised.”
