Melissa worked with us for nearly a year to try and find our perfect home. I could not recommend working with her more. A great agent and very knowledgeable.— BUYER
My husband and I were first-time buyers in the LA market when we just worked with Melissa. She helped us understand the local market and recommended houses to me when I was in Hong Kong!— BUYER
Melissa is relentlessly professional and incredibly warm and kind. Buying your first home is a harrowing experience and Melissa answered all of our questions every step of the way. I cannot possibly recommend her services highly enough.— BUYER
Melissa has managed the sale and or purchase of multiple homes for our family. She is a master and knows best in all things real estate. She looks after us so well with each experience that she is practically a member of the family. Can’t recommend her enough!— ROB
Melissa was fantastic! Very knowledgeable, easy to work with, and super fast to get back to you or get you answers/move the process along. It's clear that she really cares about her clients and about helping them out with the home-buying or home-selling process!— BUYER
I listed my house in Bel Air with Melissa. She proved to be very knowledgeable about the West side real estate market and guided me expertly through the process. She has always been available whenever I needed her. If you are in the market to buy or sell a house, I highly recommend Melissa Ryan.— SELLER
We were thoroughly impressed with Melissa Ryan's expertise and responsiveness. We were reluctant to follow some suggestions but not are very glad we did. Melissa knows best! We never felt rushed or pressured, but more like we were working with friends. And in the end we got an offer that was more than we thought we could get.— SELLER
Melissa helped my tenants and me negotiate the tricky business of renters buying their rental property. Her network of resources was impressive and I was able to get all of the repairs and retrofitting required completed in a timely manner. She represented both of us and we both felt she had our best interests at heart. It was a quick painless process.— SELLER
Melissa is great to deal with. I bought two houses through her and she handled really well from start to finish. I'm really impressed with her approach. even many months after closing these deals, she checks with me how I'm doing in my new house. even I introduced her to my friends and they were really impressed with her service and the deals they got.— YOGU K.
We recently bought our first home from a family friend. Melissa acted as a single intermediary both for the seller and for us, which reduced our costs significantly. Throughout the whole process, she was highly communicative and represented everyone's interests fairly. She kept the whole process on track and provided timely and well-informed answers to all our questions. We cannot recommend Melissa highly enough.— ANDREW M.
Melissa was an absolute pleasure to work with. This was our first time buying a home and we honestly didn't know where to begin. Melissa walked us through each and every step and was very patient with every question (even when we asked the same thing multiple times). Her professionalism was appreciated and her positive approach to every bump in the road kept us on track. We will without a doubt reach out to her again.— AMBER L
Melissa is excellent. My wife and I recommend her highly. We used her services for a sale and a purchase, in west LA and La Canada/Flintridge. She knows both markets well and she has expertise in developing strategies that lead to an accepted offer. She is extremely proactive and responsive, plus she has a wide network of knowledgeable service providers ranging from inspectors, painters, and landscapers, to financing specialists who can facilitate a transaction.— SELLER
Melissa is not only a wonderful person but she is extremely professional, reliable, and always 100% 'on it'. Without her, I would never have been able to finalize the purchase of my dream home. She's a great negotiator and available 24/7 for her clients. I could ask her anything at any time and she would get back to me immediately and help me through a process that was not the easiest. It is very rare to come across a person like Melissa in the real estate world and I can highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home.— CAROLINE K.
We had a terrific experience with Melissa. She was hugely helpful throughout (and after) our home purchase - especially because we needed to close on a very expedited timeline. She connected us with her network of colleagues throughout the process - from mortgage brokers to inspectors to contractors - to insure a smooth and rapid transaction, as well as a comfortable transition into our new home. She's effective, responsive, knowledgeable, thorough, and supportive. On top of that, she's a total pleasure to work with and a lovely person. We recommend her highly, and we'd use her again!— BUYER
Melissa sold my house within one week and the sale price was truly a pleasant surprise that I did not expect. I was recovering in a convalescent home during this time and she took care of all the negotiations and provided me with day-to-day updates. Within one month she found me the perfect home in Montrose. She worked along with the contractor to make sure that everything was done to specifications and to my liking. I went from the convalescent home right into my beautifully updated home. Melissa is a real estate professional who I would highly recommend without any reservations.— JOSIE B.
Hunting for our first home was both exciting and intimidating, and we often found ourselves with more questions than answers. I am completely honest in saying that Melissa is a significant reason we found the amazing house we are in today. She was calm and patient with responding to our many many, sometimes ridiculous, questions and very honest and optimistic when we needed it the most. Once we did find our house, Melissa made the actual purchasing process easier than the house hunt itself. Melissa was amazing for so many reasons and I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation.— BUYER
Melissa was our agent for buying a house in the Brentwood area. We closed on Dec 29th, 2017! She is a great agent and advisor. She knows the area very well. Also, for this property, we had a few back-and-forths with the seller on price and inspections. She was extremely professional in understanding our concerns and resolving them with the seller. She respected our decision-making process while providing very useful input and feedback to us, without pushing us in any particular direction. This was extremely helpful as we had to make a few hard decisions along the way and we could trust and rely on her feedback. Would strongly recommend her.— BUYER
Melissa and Kary are fabulous to work with in all senses. We met them at an open house and felt an immediate connection. They helped us find our current house and sell our previous townhouse and did an excellent job in both negotiations to make sure we got the best deal possible. Melissa is an expert negotiator and really helped to guide us through the process of which buyer to choose for our townhouse as we had multiple offers. Kary is great at looking at the details of homes and noticing potential issues a buyer might not normally spot. They made our home buying and selling experience so easy and enjoyable. We recommend them to any potential buyer...— MARY L.
We would gladly recommend Melissa and Kary to anyone who might want to buy a house in La Canada. Melissa knows the area very well, and can tell a story about a good fraction of homes here. She is superbly responsive, and has been very accommodating to our scheduling constraints. She was respectful and professional with us as well as with numerous agents and sellers, and she knows and appreciates the value of trust. We were not the easiest of clients, with quirky and numerous requirements on the prospective homes. In this difficult market, it meant few choices and several disappointments as promising transactions fell through. However, Melissa and Ka...— BUYER
Wow! Melissa is an amazing Realtor® who will go above and beyond for you time and time again. She not only sold our house and helped us find a new one, she also found us an amazing rental while we were in-between houses. When selling our home she quickly attracted potential buyers, spent quality time with them and spoke intelligently regarding the attributes of our house. When we started seriously looking for a home to buy, between Melissa's frequent MLS e-mails and Zillow searches, we were often the first potential buyers viewing houses. During our transitions from old house to rental to new home my wife gave birth our first child. Melissa helped i...— BUYER
Melissa's commitment and service to her clients is undeniable and she would not have it any other way. Their praise and appreciation is her reward.
