Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Kenner, LA.
Jeff and his team recently helped me to purchase a home primarily for my parents. The transaction was somewhat complex since my purchase was to be executed remotely from out of state. Everything went smoothly, and all of my objectives were met. The house that Jeff helped me to choose is perfect. Earlier in the process, Jeff rightly advised me to pass on a previous property due to poor inspection reports - even after the seller had accepted my offer. I could not have asked for a better group of professionals who clearly had my best interests in mind. Jeff and his team went above and beyond and always treated my parents and me with the utmost respect.

My husband and I have worked with Jeff since 2007. He has helped us sell 4 of our homes. Three of those homes were sold when it was a slower market, and each sold in under two months. In June 2014 he sold our 4th home in 1 day!!! In addition, he has helped us acquire several great investment properties, and our newest dream home. He has vast knowledge of real estate, but his expertise for deal making goes beyond just knowing the market. It includes knowing excellent contractors, home inspectors, working knowledge of construction, knowing the New Orleans Metro area, and responding quickly to anyone who calls to see our home. And he would immediately try to get in contact with any agents if we wanted to see properties. He is easy to get in touch with, and he responds very quickly. Aside from his superior expertise for knowing a good product, and closing deals, Jeff is a people person. He is likeable, and handles his business with finesse. He is a good person with a down to earth attitude. He works hard, and is trustworthy. He makes the process of home selling and buying so smooth. We are lucky we found him. We would never buy real estate in The New Orleans Metro area with anyone else other than Jeff Melancon!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $500K in Destrehan, LA.
Jeff was the selling agent for a house that my wife and I recently purchased. It was by far the most pleasant experience we have ever had in dealing with a realtor. Jeff is a true professional, always courteous, honest, and accommodating throughout our transaction.

Jeff set a very aggressive list price and sold it to the first people that walked through the front door. His professionalism and style promote ease in process from listing to close. He is an attentive, knowledgeable and skilled agent with seller and buyer. If you want to sell your house look no further. Jeff Melancon is your man.
Jeff is not only a great guy, but a very knowledgeable, reliable and helpful agent. He helped me negotiate a great deal on my property as well as walked me through the entire purchase process, which at times was very difficult. I would not hesitate to use him in the future and would definately recommend him to friends and family.
Simply put, Jeff Melancon is the best! He was extremely patient and never minded showing me and my wife a bunch of properties. He never tried to rush us or push us into a certain deal. He ALWAYS made sure that I was content with every offer he made. I also really liked the fact that he treated our house search (which was in the lower 100,000 price range) like it was the same as someone buying a 1 million dollar house. His main goal was to make us happy and to find something that we loved, and he made true to that. Two things really separate Jeff from the best: His knowledge of houses and his business. As well as his care for his customers. Jeff really knows his stuff, whether it be determining if a house would pass FHA requirements, or locating problems with the house etc. He really has a good idea of what is wrong with the house, and if it is something he cannot get the seller to fix, he can 9 times out of 10 tell you how to fix it. If you are not a do-it-yourselfer he has a gigantic list of people that can help you with repairs. What I loved most about Jeff was this: He got me a 1 year warranty with my house. Well about 11 months after we purchased the house my A/C unit went out. I picked up the phone and called him, and he did everything in his power to help me out with getting in touch with the proper people. He was always EXTREMELY HELPFUL, even 11 months after I purchased my house. Jeff is the only person I will ever sell or buy with. Just to show how good Jeff is, not only did he help me purchase my house, He was the purchasing agent for my Father and my Grandfather, and the listing agent for my Grandfather 2-3 months after the purchase of my house. I recommend Jeff to everyone because he is THE BEST!

Jeff Melancon has a good attitude and handles business in a professional manner. He tells it like it is and takes care of business. Understanding that I needed to move my property quickly, he set a reasonable price that would assure interest and make sure that I still made a profit. I have also purchased two houses from him and expect to continue doing business with him.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Destrehan, LA.
Working with Jeff was a real pleasure. We were moving to the Nola area from Nashville so we needed an area expert. Jeff was a big help with info on schools and restaurants as well as housing. He was always available to answer questions and has remained available long after we closed on our house. I would recomend Jeff to anyone looking to buy or sell in this area. I now consider him to be a friend.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Saint Rose, LA.
We were completely satisfied with the personal attention that Jeff Melancon gave to our homebuying experience. Throughout the process, he was very professional and proved he was knowledgeable about the market. He gave us a realistic perspective within our personal parameters. He was readily available to help us all the way through closing, and the end result was a home that was perfect for us. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
