Sold a Mobile / Manufactured home in 2014 in Santa Rosa, CA.
Susan was wonderful!!!!! My husband and I needed good sound advice to proceed with selling our mother's mobile home and she offered so much more. The sincerity, knowledge and professionalism she shared with us-created such a trust. She was resourceful and diligent, never too busy (even though we know she was..) to follow-up on any of our concerns or complications. We were so lucky to have her in our corner!!! Thank you Susan!

Mel Gilson helped me buy a new home and sell my previous home. Both transactions went very smoothly thanks to Mel. Mel is very responsive with phone calls and email. He understands the real estate market and is very professional. You can count on him to give you good advice.
Mel recently represented me in the sale of my condo in Santa Rosa. It could not have been an easier experience. He is extremely knowledgeable about the process and made the sale so seamless that I didn't have to do much but sign the final escrow docs. If you are buying or selling in the Santa Rosa area, you must call Mel Gilson.
I will definitely be asking him for his expertise in the future!

In short, the Gilson Real Estate group provided me excellent advice and service in the sale of a residential property from my family's estate. As an out-of-state owner of Sonoma county properties Mel and his team oversaw the remodeling and presentation of the house to achieve its sale at the optimum market price. Mel's timely communications and attention to detail was outstanding.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Santa Rosa, CA.
When my family relocated from New York to Santa Rosa, we needed a realtor who really understood the local market and was able to steer us to the best neighborhoods in our price range. There is only so much you can learn from internet searches, so it is imperative that a realtor has extensive experience in the area. Mel did a great job getting us zeroed in on a handful of neighborhoods and ensured that we stayed focused on the right things. I was patient as we worked through the process, always providing solid feedback about our housing options and, ultimately, helped us find a home that worked for us. We eventually selected a short sale and Mel helped us understand the rather lengthy and, often frustrating, process to close a deal of this type.
In the end, my family got the right home for us in a great neighborhood, and we couldn't have done it without Mel! In the future, I would definitely steer anyone looking to purchase a home in Santa Rosa his way.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $500K in Windsor, CA.
Mel was very helpful in our home search. We needed someone who could help us in a difficult finanacing situation. Mel was able to connect us with the proper people and make the home purchase happen. We would highly recommend Mel.
When I made contact over the Zillow website, I was contacted right away regarding my real estate needs and then Mel set up a tour of several appropriate properties. Mel was easy-going and very easy to communicate with and gave me good advice based upon his many years of experience and knowledge of the area. There was absolutely no pressure to make an offer but he was very willing to give advice when asked. I decided to go ahead with an offer and he made several good suggestions when it came time to write it up. Mel and his partner, Susan Pack, went beyond expectations with their professionalism, caring and generosity. With their insight, intelligence, integrity and finesse, the deal was completed quickly and efficiently with wins all around. I highly recommend Susan Pack and Mel Gilson!
We are so fortunate to have had Mel and Susan represent us in the purchase of our Duplex. Their professionalism and knowledge helped us through a stressful sale and the complete follow up to all details assisted us beyond closing. We will use them again when we purchase our home in Sonoma County. Thank you, Mel and Susan!

Not just a cut above, but simply, the BEST!
If you are tired of declining services and disappointing results, I strongly urge you to call Mel Gilson for your next real estate transaction.
He is a multifaceted and talented gent, with old world values who gets things done right. Whenever I called him, he answered personally; rarely did his machine pick up. When issues came up during the close of the sale of my home, he handled them professionally, efficiently and in a timely fashion.
Mel is upbeat, personable and very capable. I feel myself very fortunate to have selected him as my selling broker.
Not only did he deliver excellent service, but he also made the process fun instead of stressful. When he said he'd do something, BOOM, it was done. I slept quite well during my sale due to his efforts.
Do yourself a big favor, and call Mel now to help you buy or sell your next property. You'll be more than pleased that you did.
