Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Westminster, CA.
I was involved in the mortgage biz for over 20 years and am HIGHLY skeptical of all realtors but when it came time to sell my Mothers home after her passing I was unnerved as well. I interviewed two other useless realtors (or should I say listing agents) and then Melinda walked into my life. I have NEVER, EVER, run into a more professional team as well as compassionate group of people in my entire life. We referred to Moms home as "Pandora's Box" as every turn had a surprise waiting for us. Melinda or her team handled each problem as if it was the most interesting thing they had ever seen and in no time at all each "challenge" was solved perfectly. When all was done I have no problems recommending Melinda to anyone for any transaction. Prior to meeting her, I would tell friends to try to do it by FSBO and use a good escrow company but now I simply hand someone Melinda's card or phone number and I absolutely know, without a doubt the person I refer will be treated honestly and respectfully each and every time.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.05M in Santa Ana, CA.
I just sold my home in March 2014 - Melinda Johnson and the entire Freedom First Properties team were the perfect fit for me! Buying/selling a home is such an emotional roller coaster but working with the right people helped me make smart decisions during the entire process. For me, it started with a realistic assessment of the market and the value of my home. With an in-house appraiser on the Freedom First Properties staff, this is where I believe they exceled. We talked in detail about my goals and objectives, the appraiser visited my home and did his research to determine the estimated value, and only then was I provided with several pricing strategies and options. They help you to step away from your "emotional" attachments to the home and focus on what is really possible based on the market data.

They were right on the money (literally) with their assessment and as a result my home received multiple offers after only nine days on the market.

Once the agreement was signed with the buyers, this is really where Melinda Johnson and her staff did an exceptional job. We had several challenges during the process and Melinda stayed in control of the situation and always looked out for my best interest. The Freedom First Properties appraiser even met with the lender's appraiser at my home to make sure the house was properly assessed.

I found Melinda's skills from her previous work experience as a lawyer who worked on deal structures with Boeing Capital to be extremely helpful. She knows how to negotiate and get the deal done no matter what issues crop up during the sales process, while always maintaining strict moral and ethical standards. She's a true professional and now, a friend.

In the end, my home sold after a 30 day escrow and I am very happy with the sales price. Not only would I recommend Melinda and Freedom First Properties to anyone, I will definitely be using them again when I have another real estate transaction.

Melinda was the listing agent for the home we purchased in Anaheim Hills. She is simply a delight to work with, is ethical, personable and professional. Well be happy to refer her to our friends and family for future real estate opportunities!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $775K in Anaheim Hills, Anaheim, CA.
Melinda is a rainmaker in a drought. We got ourselves into a bad position, bought anew house before selling our existing residence in Anaheim Hills. A really dumb thing to do. Melinda saved us, she ran realtor viewing parties, advertised, and finally procured a decent offer from qualified buyers. She structured the sale so that everybody was happy, a very creative result. It helped that Melinda also represented the buyer, sold their house in 5 days to make the deal work, then took over and handled the administrative aspects with the least amount of inconvenience.

We love Melinda, she has substantiated our reason for contracting with her. She has a great support group, a good team, she is an example of what would be expected of the best, really there is no competition.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $375K in Corona, CA.
Melinda is a very super gal, the thing I like most about Melinda is her honesty and professionalism. She has helped me purchased over five properities and I have been extremely happy with our working relationship on every one of them. I also have recommended two colleagues to her, in which one has purchased a property from her and is extremely happy and the other one is in the process of buying and selling from her. I would highly recommend Melinda to buy or sell a property from her.

Sold a home in 2011.
I was impressed with Melinda's skill, her ethical standards, the support she offered us, her quick responses by e mail or phone, and her kind, considerate patience with my husband and me. She traveled to Northern California to see the property, meet with people who knew the specific area, and handled everything in a way that always gave us confidence that we were dealing with an expert. She was also interested in our personal needs and feelings during the long and difficult process and afterward as well. I plan to work with her again when I sell a property; what better recommendation can I give?
