It was no surprise. Mel got us an even better price than my target. It was a great experience. And it started before we even met with Mel. I had an expectation based on what my friend told me about him—his flexibility, negotiating skills, knowledge of the area, and most importantly, integrity. As we visited houses, he showed me how to think differently about home buying. Rather than just what we see, he showed us how see the long-term potential.
“I really did my research before selecting Mel as my realtor. I interviewed 7 realtors. From his background, credentials, success stories, testimonials, etc., I felt like he tried a lot harder. And he did. I loved that he could go into any house and tell me if it was a diamond in the rough or something to avoid, as well as what I needed to do to make it a happy home. He worked tirelessly. He was patient even when we were on vacation outside the country. In the end, Mel helped us beat out 8 competing offers for the home we really wanted.”

We bought two homes with Mel for three big reasons. First, he was flexible. He met with us on the weekdays and weekends, around our schedules. Second, Mel offered frank, insightful advice, asked great questions, and really listened to us. Last, which we thought was really different, was his ability to compare and contrast the house we were visiting with any and all of the ones we visited previously or looked at online. It was very important to work with people that love to do what they do. And it showed with everything Mel did.

“Mel called us every week…sometimes daily. He spent a lot of time with me and my husband. In the beginning he asked a ton of great questions, creating a profile of our must have’s and nice to have’s with school district being our top priority. We were a little concerned we were limiting ourselves too much. Mel assured us we can have everything on our must have’s list. After visiting just a few houses, we knew Mel really listened and cared. The houses were perfect. And now, we love our new home and community. I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.”

“Mel Golden is a great realtor with great customer relationship skills. He helped us find the best home for our family. He was a polite, persistent negotiator. Today, he continues to be a great friend. I recommend him to everyone who needs a sincere, hard-working, and trustworthy agent.”
Edge & Aysun Tulun
“The chemistry was just right. From the first day I met Mel, he genuinely cared. That’s why we became friends. And that’s why a year later, I only considered working with Mel as my realtor. I care about his advice and ideas. He cares about me and my family. He always provides frank answers based on years of experience that shows in everything he did—house selection, interiors, yards, schools, negotiation, etc. And today, our families are friends. Whenever asked, I enthusiastically recommend Mel and no one else.”
“We bought and sold six investment properties with Mel. When it comes to short sales and foreclosures, his expertise as an owner/builder, realtor, and negotiator was invaluable. Mel’s advice regarding the building’s structure, areas to upgrade, re-sale potential, and so much more helped us navigate the world of distressed properties, ensuring we bought the houses at the prices we wanted AND sell them at the prices we wanted. He is a negotiating master. There’s no one else we’ve met like Mel.”
