Reviews

"My wife and I worked with Melissa when we originally acquired our condo in Studio City and were extremely happy with the process. We had attempted to work with a couple agents before we found her, but they just didn't seem to be a good fit. Both the purchase and sale of our home had some unique challenges. The original purchase was a short sale which required competent and experienced navigation of the intricacies of dealing with the bank/seller. With her help, we eventually locked it up and even after we closed, Melissa was there for us to ensure everything was smooth sailing. When it came to selling our home more recently, there was no question that we'd request the help of Melissa. Our home had an unusual circumstance where we needed to have our condo comply with new LA County regulations for a seismic retrofit but hadn't broken ground on the project or even nailed down a complete estimate of costs. We wanted to move quickly, but were concerned with how to properly communicate this to interested buyers and if this might really hurt the chances of a smooth sale. She came up with a plan, clearly laid out the steps and everything came together exactly as we had hoped. From the first open house to escrow in one week! Her marketing was top notch, generating far more interest than the competition, resulting in a sale price exceeding our expectations with many other solid offers supporting that price. Excellent communication, reliable, attentive, detail oriented and makes you feel like the most important client in the world. Melissa is a rare find and I'm so grateful to have such an experienced professional willing to help my family out."
- Jeremy Buttell, Seller 2017
Hard to imagine, but I have more residential sales experience than Melissa in Seattle. Even so, I was incredibly impressed with all aspects of our two transactions in Los Angeles. She usually PICKED UP my phone calls (a rarity), and always promptly called back if I left a message (also rare in these times). I interviewed 3 other area agents (all well recommended), and Melissa was Far and Away the superior choice! If I ever have clients headed to SoCal, or if I ever get any inquiry for a true real estate professional in this area, Melissa will be my first call! Thank you Melissa for making my two transactions as smooth as you did!
- --Steven Wayne, Seller 2017
Throughout the process of selling my home, I felt that I could trust Melissa completely. Not only is she very knowledgeable of the market, she is very honest and ethical. I felt that Melissa went beyond our expectations in providing a very easy and smooth selling experience.
- Francesca De Laurentiis, Seller 2017
Melissa listed two condo units in our building. I was impressed with her effectiveness in getting the condos sold at great prices and within a short period of time. So when we were ready to lease our unit, I picked her as our agent. She is extraordinary- professional, personable, savvy and most of all, super-efficient and effective. She and her associate Vanessa helped us lease our unity within a week. And the entire process was effortless and fun too!
- -Jing Jin, Lease Listing 2017
"Melissa guided us through the sale of our home beautifully. She made us feel confident from the beginning that she would take care of everything and communicate throughout the process. She was very responsive to all of our requests and questions. She was extremely knowledgeable about the process of selling a home. Would highly recommend her!"
- Joel Karp, Seller 2017
Melissa was very helpful from beginning to end in answering all questions and one of the nicest agents I have ever worked with. Would highly recommend her and her team.
- Chris Chew, Buyer 2017
"Melissa has been incredible throughout the process of selling our home. She had a nearly full price offer within 5 days of our listing our home with her. Starting with the negotiations through closing, Melissa was always responsive to our questions, kept us calm throughout and always maintained a positive attitude. We couldn't have asked for a better agent. The only caveat we would give is, if you're going list your house with Melissa you better be very certain you're willing to sell and to sell quickly."
- Rob Jupille, Seller, 2017
Melissa made the process of selling my home a stress-free and enjoyable process. She priced it right and it sold in 5 days! She was always available to answer questions, offer advice and remained calm throughout the entire process. After each open house she kept me informed of all the activity, even sending me a video message and never left me wanting for more information. She produced outstanding marketing materials and her team was professional and fun. Melissa is smart, attentive, protective, aggressive when needed and spices things up with her terrific sense of humor. I highly recommend her to anyone selling or buying a home.
- Ferrell Marshall, Seller 2016
Melissa was a great agent. She made the process of selling our home about as easy and trouble free as an agent could. We would highly recommend her to anyone who is considering buying or selling a home.
- Karl Kliewer, Seller 2016
I have worked with Melissa as both a buyer and a seller, and I'm a big fan. She is meticulous in her planning, and doesn't miss a detail, even in the middle of complex negotiations. But the best part of working with Melissa is that she has a great personality - and when you choose an agent, it's not only important to choose someone smart, experienced and knowledgeable, but you also need to find someone you like spending time with. Melissa is all of that. Thank you Melissa!
- Heidi Hockenberry, Buyer, 2014 & Seller, 2016
"Melissa is incredible. She assisted me in a quick relocation from the east coast, found me the perfect apartment in under two days, and handled all of the paperwork so that I could move in with ease. She was always available for questions, and even smoothed over a few issues with the landlord. I was impressed by her knowledge of the area, including restaurants, gyms, and services. I highly recommend her for any real estate needs!"
- Jenn LaGrange, Luxury Lease 2016
Melissa was truly masterful in her handling of our condo sale. Literally every aspect of the process was meticulously handled. As first time home-sellers, we needed her to unpack details and walk us through all aspects of the sale. She was patient and clear and ultimately helped us realize a profit far beyond what we had expected. She rocks.
- T. Duffy, Seller 2016
We really lucked out with Melissa. She made the whole experience as first-time homebuyers (who didn't know anything) easy and so pleasant! She was always so organized and on top of everything. She was always available and whenever we had questions, her response time was immediate. I was impressed particularly with her ability to give us the answers we needed while remaining objective and allowing us to make the decisions we wanted throughout the process. Melissa truly went above and beyond!
- Annette Mendez, Buyer 2016
We sought Melissa to assist us with the purchase of a condo in LA because our daughter had been her client in a previous transaction. We were not disappointed. Because we are from another state and were buying in absentia, Melissa had a lot of challenges in working through the purchase. She gave us spot on advice on market conditions. She knows the territory of West Los Angeles and more specifically the neighborhood of Westwood Village in and around UCLA. She was able to handle all aspects of the purchase for us, and kept us well advised at every step of the way. She is very skilled at removing roadblocks and was superbly cautious to protect our interests at every step of the way. We would not hesitate to engage her again either for a sale or purchase.
- Lyndia Glasgow, Buyer 2016
My fiancé and I had a wonderful experience dealing with Melissa and her team. From the initial property search right down to the closing day Melissa was a pleasure to work with. She was always reachable and even when there were small hiccups along the way, she went above and beyond to smooth everything over and find a solution for us. We're looking forward to working together again in the future!
- Adrian Boeckeler, Buyer 2016
"Aimee and Melissa make a great team and I give them my top recommendation. They helped us as buyers on a tight schedule and I felt that their experience and competence gave us an advantage. I especially appreciated their knowledge of the LA west side market and their familiarity with the issues encountered on transactions like ours. I would not hesitate to use them again."
- Mark & Judy C., Buyers 2013
"Look no further in searching for the best real estate professional - Melissa Menard is it! No strangers to relocation, our family was looking at our seventh move in under ten years and we were referred to Melissa through a family friend. Moving from Chicago to Southern California logistically limited our ability to house hunt, but Melissa streamlined everything for us and thoughtfully listened to our needs and desires in a home. Not only was she able to help us find the perfect house in Los Angeles, her professionalism and breath of knowledge of the market and area, gave us the confidence to lease a property without ever being able to see it in person. Walking into our new home on the first day, it was all we could do to thank her a million times over. We highly recommend her for any real estate needs and wish we could work with her for all our relocations. She is truly a category of one."
- Elena Groh, Luxury Lease Client, 2016
“We live in Illinois and bought a condo in Sherman Oaks, CA. We were so grateful to have Aimee & Melissa as our realtors. They made the long-distance process painless and successful. Their negotiation expertise is amazing. They were helpful and were pleasant to work with ... always positive. We plan to use them again when we decide to sell.”
- Marcy & Steve S., Buyers 2013
“Aimee and Melissa were an excellent team; their individual strengths combine into a powerful duo. They made the experience of buying my first home easy and enjoyable. They found the perfect place for me, helped me negotiate the purchase, supported me through the close of escrow and helped me get settled into my new home. I could not have asked for better!”
- Ali S., Buyer 2013
“This is a team that will work their hardest for you from start to finish. They make you feel like you're their only client every step of the way. We can't say enough for Aimee and Melissa's personal approach and attention to detail. They aren't just out for the commission; they truly want you feeling comfortable every step of the way. In our own case, the down to the wire escrow would have been a mess if not for the fact that our realtors stepped in and pushed everything through for us. We would work with this team anywhere, anytime and can't recommend them highly enough.”
- Robbie & Jeff W., Sellers 2012
“Fantastic service and approach, terrific teamwork! Highly recommended.”
- Duke H., Seller 2012
