Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $100K in Hesperia, CA.
My wife and I were living out of sate in Wisconsin wanting to relocate back to California. Melodie spent countless hours in researching our particular needs and wants in a home while keeping in contact with us nearly on a daily basis. Since there was a time difference between us she spent many hours both late and early to ensure our offers were submitted in a timely manner. The home we finally purchased was as a result of Melodies efforts since time was of the essence she drove out of her way to do a quick walk through since we had no pictures/description to go off of, took pictures sent them to use via her cell phone and then presented the offer late that evening resulting in a successful closing. I have known Melodie now for nearly 23 years through home buying and I can honestly say I trust her judgment 100% as in our recent purchase sight unseen and have zero regrets with our purchase.

Melodie knew exactly what I wanted and didn't waste time showing me properties I had no interest in. She thought of everything from the selling of my house to the buying of my new home. I feel as though I've made a good friend in her and that she will always be available should I have any problems.
TRULY caring, honest, knowledgeable and extremely professional ! Melodie Benson and her team was a pleasure to work with, Melodie and her team actually called me with updates; a personal touch very hard to find these days of online emails and anonymity...Highly recommended, thank you.

Melodie was most helpful with a trying and difficult sale on our old house, the buyers wanted the house but didn't have their credit in line. She worked with the sellers of our new home as well as the agent for the buyers of our house, taking a lot of the stress out of what could have been a nightmare. Melodie was a joy to work with as was her staff. She knows the area and was able to show us a dozen or more homes we liked and found us our dream home.
My wife and I will have not problem recommending Melodie to any of our friends or anyone who asks.

Melodie was a referral who came highly recommended. Upon my first conversation with her, I was highly impressed with her level of knowledge base and professionalism. Because of her, the process of selling my property went smoothly!! Additionally, I bought a property from Melodie within a very short time frame...................I was very pleased with her abilities to represent me as her client. If you are looking to sell or buy property, I highly recommend you hire Melodie Benson for your real estate needs!!

After my Mother's death I needed a knowledgable Real Estate agent familiar with living trusts. A friend recommended Melodie Benson. We interviewed two agents prior to interviewing Melodie and were impressed with her depth of knowledge and experience. Melodie laid out a marketing strategy that resulted not only in a quick sale but we sold the home for more than the original asking price.
During the escrow process things got complicated with the buyer's lender and the qualified buyer fell out of escrow twice. As you can imagine these events caused some anxiety for both parties. Through it all Melodie didn't skip a beat. She knew exactly what to do at each step of the way. She gave me advice at every turn that allowed me to make informed decisions. Every time I asked a question Melodie had the right answer. We did successfully close escrow with the aforementioned buyer.
Melodie is an excellent negotiator with a no nonsense assertiveness that she wasn't hesitant to use when the buyer's agent was not as attentive to the process as he should have been.
This is not the first house I have bought or sold over the years but Melodie is the best Real Estate agent I have ever met. I would recommend her agency to anyone needing assistance with their real estate needs.
This review wouldn't be complete without mention of Deanna Holley, Melodie's very professional assistant. Deanna is very professional, helpful, willing and capable of handling anything I threw her way. She always followed through and got back to me quickly whether the question was posed on the phone or email.
It was a pleasure doing business with Melodie Benson Real Estate.

We would like to recommend the services of Realtor Melodie Benson Our real estate transaction was especially challenging. We were attempting to buy a new home contingent on our ability to sell our existing home. Complications arose when the buyer of our existing home did not "perform" according to our agreed upon dates. This created a very stressful situation! We had our hearts set on acquiring a larger living space and satisfying the needs of our growing family. We were not sure it was going to happen!
Melodie's twenty two years of real estate experience was put to the test. She properly advised and guided us through each step of this challenging situation. In the end, both deals closed successfully. We now have a more spacious home and can enjoy entertaining larger groups of friends and family. We were privileged to have Melodie's expertise and professionalism working for us. We would be happy to request her help again. She continues to serve as our on-going real estate expert and referral resource to our friends and colleagues.
Melodie helped us purchase our first home over 10 years ago and since then, she also helped our parents sell and purchase homes. If you want experience that counts and excellent communication from your agent, then you want to work with Melodie Benson and her staff. Not only is she on top of her game, but she makes sure that everyone else is too!

Melodie Benson has been my realtor both selling my home in Lake Elsinore, and most recently in buying my home in Lakewood. I would highly recommend Melodie, to anyone who wants to purchase or sell their home. She is very professional, highly knowledgable, fights for you as your realtor, follows up on paperwork immediately, responds to your questions promptly. Melodie always shows you the homes that fits your needs, never pushes you into the wrong home. Based on her knowledge, i personally will call on Melodie for my next home purchase. If you are serious in purchasing or selling a home, give Melodie the opportunity to be your realtor.
