Team reviews

Working with Ms. Benson was a great experience. She is experienced and extremely knowledgable in real estate. The whole process was smooth largely due to Ms, Benson's contacts and expertise. She was recommended to us by my sister in law who assisted her in purchasing a home. We sold my sister's home as an estate sale and the home sold immediately. I highly recommend Ms. Benson to anyone purchasing or selling a property.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Azusa, CA.

I worked with Melodie over a decade ago when I purchased my condo. It was my first venture into home buying, and I never forgot how easy and pleasant it was to work with her. When it was time for me to sell, I didn't hesitate to contact her. Once again, the experience was easy, pleasant, and rewarding! She knows the real estate business very well, and she also knows how to treat her clients. I highly recommend her.

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.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Upland, CA.

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.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $475K in Upland, CA.

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.

Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Rancho Cucamonga, CA.

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!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $375K in Glendora, CA.

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.
