TESTIMONIALS

Real Clients. Real Stories.

Alexis C.

"Melissa and her team could not have been more helpful, patient and so very informative as we prepared for and managed a cross-country move to Los Angeles. We are SO grateful to Melissa, and her entire team, who contributed so much to our home buying process and move; they were honest and open partners who significantly hand held us and helped reduce our concerns and anxiety."

Carrie W.

"Melissa is very knowledgeable about the LA real estate market. I had a great experience as a first time buyer in LA with her. She was able to answer all my questions in this complicated market and her relationships with others (e.g. she was able to recommend a home inspector and loan officer) make the process smoother. Will return and refer."

Adam F.

"I had a wonderful experience working with Melissa. She was knowledgeable, easy to work with, and really helped inform my decision making to find the best living arrangement. I highly recommend working with Melissa for your housing needs!"

Lauren R.

"Melissa was a consummate professional. She came in and won my listing for her buyers out of 10 offers. Yes her client had the best terms, but what put her client on top (for my sellers) was HER. She was positive, on top of things, communicative, organized and a deal maker. After 22 years in the business agents who really stand out make all the difference in the world. I can't wait to do my next deal with you Melissa!"

Myra D.

"Melissa was absolutely amazing to work with. She made the overwhelming house hunting process move efficiently and smoothly. She is not only incredibly skilled and effective at what she does, but also manages to bring fun to the experience. It was an absolute pleasure working with Melissa and cannot believe we were able to find a place so quickly with her. I’d highly recommend her to anyone looking in the area. Thank you, Melissa!"

Michael Y.

"I couldn't be happier with my home purchase and selling experience. Melissa Menard Homes was extremely knowledgeable and professional throughout. Her real estate experience and local market knowledge were critical for my home sale with multiple offers and a smooth transaction . I would recommend Melissa to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home!"

Frankie A.

"My wife and I had an outstanding experience with Melissa Menard as a first time homebuyer. Throughout the entire process, we always felt that Melissa had our backs, and only wanted us to move forward when we felt 100% comfortable. Another aspect we really appreciated was her organization and responsiveness through the escrow process. Melissa always shows up with a smile and is both fun and enjoyable to work with! Thank you for helping us land our first home, Melissa!"

Elizabeth G.

"Melissa is the best of the best! She came highly recommended and now we understand why. She is smart, professional, strategic, detail-oriented, and expert in her field. It is clear to us that we are now living in the home we dreamed of due to her advice and expertise. She walked us through each step of the process with patience and ensured that our home buying process took place complication free. Thank you Melissa for helping us in our first home purchase. We know that we couldn't have done it without you!"

Jenni W.

"Melissa is great at her job and it shows. I worked with Melissa on finding a home remotely and even through video chats and phone calls it was evident that Melissa deeply understands the market and can be trusted in the home buying search. Melissa came to me as a recommendation from a colleague who also had a great experience in her home buying process. Buying a home is a big decision but working with Melissa is a no-brainer."

Doretta M.

"Melissa did a fantastic job marketing and selling our condo, and while doing so during the COVID pandemic-she did not let the challenges posed stop her. From our first meeting to the final close date Melissa exhibited extraordinary professionalism, a keen level of expertise, attention to detail, and patience with her skittish sellers! I highly recommend Melissa and if I have the opportunity will engage her services again."

Sophie L.

"Melissa is an awesome agent! I am a first time homebuyer, Melissa has made the complicated home-buying process a breeze for me. She cares about her clients and unlike other agents, she doesn't oversell and will only recommend a property when she truly thinks it is a fit. It only took us a few months to find my dream home and less than 30 days to close escrow, I can't thank her enough!"

Hans L.

"I've been in the hospitality business and guest services for over two decades. I take great pride in providing exceptional experiences. So it was both humbling and gratifying to be on the receiving end of the exceptional service I received from Melissa. She listened to my exact needs, she engaged and empowered me to make informed decisions and the results have been delightful. I'm exactly where I need to be thanks to Melissa's compassion, work ethic and follow through. Highly recommend."

Elena G.

"Look no further in searching for the best real estate professional - Melissa Menard is it! 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. 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."

Casey J.

"I got really lucky finding Melissa. I was in a position where I needed someone experienced and someone that I could trust and I found exactly that. I would recommend her to anyone I know, 10/10. Thanks Melissa for patiently going through the process with me, you were amazing!"

Marnie D.

"Melissa was an absolute pleasure to work with! She had answers for every question and replied promptly to every email/text/phone call. We can't imagine working with anyone else in the future!"

Richard R.

"Melissa is super-saavy in all aspects of Real Estate, and knows the nuances of financing inside-out. She is also familiar with construction, zoning, legal issues, etc., and when she doesn't know something, she'll research it. She's all-business, but also a fun and pleasant person to work with. I've worked with her twice, and expect I'll do it again."

Michael A.

"Melissa has helped us buy and sell a condo and two houses over the last several years. She is simply the best and there is literally no one else I would trust with our needs. We’ve moved out of state and she has been great about getting our house to market. Don’t even bother with other realtors. She is a real one."

Matt M.

"Melissa is without a doubt the most knowledgeable real estate professional I have ever worked with. She is also just a WONDERFUL human being. She is deeply knowledgeable about real estate finance and market technicals, which you don't often find. Her goal is to ensure her clients are truly happy vs. trying to sell them on something less than ideal. I will always recommend Melissa to friends/colleagues, and she will forever be my go-to for all things LA real estate."

Amy G.

"Melissa Menard is truly the best. From the first day we met her, we knew our search for a real estate agent was over - her professionalism, responsiveness, patience with two home buying rookies and understanding of our needs was exactly what we needed and so appreciated. Hopefully we won't be selling or buying anytime soon because we love our new home, but if we do, Melissa is definitely going to be our person."

Kristin S.

"Selling my home was challenging for me. It was hard to let go of something I put a lot of myself into...what made that easier for me was Melissa taking the time to listen to the story of my home and then telling that story to all of the potential buyers. Her care for my home's story helped ensure we found the perfect buyers for the home. I wanted everyone that saw my home to have a personal tour instead of an open house - Melissa carefully guided every potential buyer throughout my home - meticulously pointing out all the features that made my home special."

Sam P.

"Honestly could not have gone through this process without Melissa. We are first time home buyers and Melissa guided and educated us each step of the way. She is incredibly organized, attentive and professional. Melissa looked after us from start to finish and we feel truly grateful to have had her in our corner. Thank you so much!"

Justine L.

"If there was a World Cup for real estate agents, Melissa Menard would win. She is professional, personable, communicative, honest, and responsive. She represented the sale of our 2 bedroom condo in Sherman Oaks. Melissa is armed with data and has her pulse on the market. Melissa is a dream - it is without hesitation that I highly recommend her to anyone who is thinking of selling or buying a home. You won't find a kinder, more informed, more professional or more knowledgeable agent. Melissa, thank you from the bottom of my heart!"

Tyler S.

"Melissa was a tremendous help in our search to find an apartment. From the moment she was engaged she was available whenever we needed to answer our questions or show us a prospective apartment. She went to bat for us on a number of occasions with special requests that we had for our new landlord. We could not of landed our place without her!"

Daniel E.

"Melissa was incredibly helpful throughout the whole process. She consulted us on locations and apartments and found various places for us. Once we found the place we wanted, she represented us to make sure we would get the unit. she took care of all paperwork and was great to work with."

Ben F

"Working with Melissa has been an absolute pleasure both times I have enlisted her help in finding a new apartment. From start to finish in both experiences she has exceeded expectations in terms of professionalism, knowledge of the market, response time and communications on our behalf to the respective landlords. She is extremely in tune with her clients needs and will not stop until those needs are met. I wholeheartedly recommend working with Melissa if the opportunity presents itself - you won't regret it and you will absolutely love your new home. Thank you Melissa!"

Cary

"I would HIGHLY recommend Melissa to anyone and everyone. I live in NYC and was looking to rent a house in LA. Melissa helped me and my wife through the whole process of making the transition from the East Coast to the West Coast (there are lots of differences between the real estate markets of LA and NYC). She knows EVERYTHING about the LA market - from prices, to the various intricate laws, to what areas we should both focus on and avoid. Melissa was also fantastic when we started to negotiate on the place we settled on."

Marsha

"Melissa worked with my boyfriend and I for almost a year to buy our first home. From saving for the deposit to potential fixes on homes and negotiation tactics, she couldn’t have been more helpful. I always felt like we were in good hands. And there wasn’t ever a moment when I felt like Melissa didn’t have our best interests at heart. I would work with her again in a heartbeat."

Buyer

"I do not know where to even begin to rave about Melissa Menard. My wife and I had no idea when going into buying our house and Melissa walked us through every step flawlessly and she did all the behind the scenes work and made the entire process seem easy and actually fun. The best compliment I can give is Melissa makes you feel like you are her only client while I'm sure she is trying to juggle several clients and deals all at once. She never feels stressed and will go to bat for you. Melissa will go above and beyond for you and she is a rare talent and just human being."

Jonathan B.

"I cannot say enough how truly wonderful, kind, and thorough Melissa was. We were first-time buyers and needed a lot of hand-holding and support every step of the way. Melissa was not only incredibly knowledgeable and wise about how best to get our dream home, she was always reachable and supportive while we went through escrow. Furthermore, she knew a lot of people to help make settling into our new home easier. I'd recommend Melissa to anyone and everyone who is buying or selling. She's truly outstanding in every sense!"

Jeremy B.

"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. 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."

Seller

"I was incredibly impressed with all aspects of our two transactions in Los Angeles. She 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, 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!"

Seller

"Throughout the process of selling my home, I felt that I could trust Melissa completely. Not only is she very knowledge 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."

Seller

"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 unit within a week. And the entire process was effortless and fun too!"

Julie A.

"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!"

Buyer

"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."

R. J.

"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."

Seller

"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. I highly recommend her to anyone selling or buying a home."

Seller

"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."

Tenant

"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!"

Heidi H.

"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!"

Seller

"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."

Annette M.

"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!"

Buyer

"Melissa is fantastic! We had a great experience working with her. She came highly recommended by a colleague of ours. Melissa is professional, organize, and always made herself available to us. Whenever we had any questions, we always felt that we could contact her anytime. She is patient, understanding of our concerns, and most importantly, we never felt any pressure from her. She helped guide us to finding our first home. We will be recommending her to all of our friends!"

Adrian B.

"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!"

Michael H.

"Melissa is without a doubt the most knowledgeable real estate professional I have ever worked with. She is also just a WONDERFUL human being. She is deeply knowledgeable about real estate finance and market technicals, which you don't often find. Her goal is to ensure her clients are truly happy vs. trying to sell them on something less than ideal. I will always recommend Melissa to friends/colleagues, and she will forever be my go-to for all things LA real estate."

Jenn H.

"Melissa and team showed outstanding professionalism, they were timely, informative, supportive, dedicated, and diligent. They worked very hard getting escrow to close. They made us feel like we were buying a multi-million dollar estate to say the least. We would highly recommend them for all of your real estate sales and acquisitions! We will be giving them a call when we are ready for our next purchase!"

Buyer

"Melissa and team were extremely helpful throughout the entire process of looking for and purchasing a new home. They quickly understood what we were looking for and gave us the tools to see everything that was out there. When it came time to view the properties, we were always on the same page which was great. Once we found that perfect home, they helped with figuring out the right offer amount, used their powers of persuasion to get the buyer to take our offer. I would highly recommend Melissa to anyone looking for a new home!"

Buyer

"I only have one word to describe my experience with Melissa and her team: awesome! I was a first time home buyer new to the Los Angeles area. They took me through the entire process and worked very hard to help me get the right condo at the right price. Thanks to their hard work, during that trip I found the perfect condo and they were able to help me with the entire closing process and purchase even though I was several thousand miles away. Their organization, responsiveness and knowledge was critical to the my success in closing."

Katrina C.

"We had a fantastic experience working with Melissa to purchase our home. We never felt any pressure, just fully supported as she worked with us. She was so patient in listening to our concerns, and answering our questions in as little or as much detail as we wanted. We hope to not move for a long time... so I say this with nothing but respect when I say that we hope to not work with Melissa again for a long time but would gladly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home. Especially first time home-buyers like us, with many questions!"
