Cliff Melby ~ President

Cliff Melby ~

Cliff has decades of being a business veteran with a zest for small business development and growth. After being in the manufacturing business, he made a push to become an AOG specialist delivering flight critical components to the Boeing Company. Several years later, Cliff and his brothers started investing in undervalued properties and started the company "Performance Property" renovating and turning undervalued homes and properties for profit.

Later, "Melby Brothers Performance Investments" was formed as a small private placement investment company. They soon became one of the largest investors in select technology and media companies.

After years of private and public company experience, Cliff rolled back the desire to risk capital.

With years of management and leadership skills, Cliff's role as Managing Partner with WoodRidge Custom Homes is a natural fit and has proven to be vital to the growth and success of the company. Growing up with a passion for outdoor activities, hunting, fishing,
motor cross racing, and extreme snowmobiling, Cliff and his family enjoy the Central Washington area to the fullest.

Andrea has been in Sales and Marketing since receiving her degree from Central Washington University where she was a collegiate athlete in fastpitch softball. She is mother to three young children, who keep her and her husband very busy. They enjoy living in the Central Washington area since the sun shines most of the year, which allows her family to camp, hike, raft the river, and enjoy the outdoors. They are very involved in their community where they serve as volunteers for several organizations and their church. Andrea is a great fit for Sales and Marketing for WoodRidge, because she is both transparent and ethical when it comes to working with our clients from inception to completion of their custom home. She prides herself in being knowledgeable and helpful all with a friendly attitude and a big smile. Her favorite thing about WoodRidge is our team of professionals who take pride in their work and build truly remarkable homes.

Michael ~ Project Manager

Michael ~
Project Manager

In 2014 Michael graduated from Central Washington University with a Bachelor's Degree in Construction Management and then completed his MBA in Project Management from Colorado Technical University. His previous experience in the construction industry also includes working as a Project Engineer with the electrical subcontractor on the CWU Science Phase II building. I moved to Central Washington in 2005 to attend CWU. After two years I went into the United States Marine Corps for 4 years and returned the day I was honorably discharged. I've been living in Ellensburg ever since. I mostly spend my spare time with my 12 year old twins. Going to their sporting events, choir concerts, movies, adventures and church are our priorities. My son and I enjoy time well spent on the golf course. Our family enjoys road trips to visit family, camping on summer vacations to the beach and theme parks. Ever since coming to Ellensburg for college I have fallen in love with Kittitas County. The outdoors, the people, and the sunshine are what make it so great to live here.

Building custom homes is the reason I pursued a Construction Management degree. When I was first introduced to WoodRidge Custom Homes I was amazed at the stunning homes I was shown. After a few meetings with Cliff I could tell WoodRidge would be a great place to continue my career. The WoodRidge team is extremely talented and I have great confidence in our team.
