Team reviews

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.

Bought a home in 2010 in Corona, CA 91708.

Melodie Benson is FANTASTIC!

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!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $350K in Lakewood, CA.

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.

Bought a home in 2011 in La Verne, CA 91750.

Melodie takes a personal interest in each of her clients, going to extraordinary lengths to ensure that her clients' interests are protected. She is very personable and easy to talk to and her knowledge of local real estate issues is boundless. In our particular case, we had problems with the termite inspection on an older home; we became very frustrated with the seller, but Melodie acted as an effective mediator and suggested the proper course of action to take to protect our interests. Her integrity and ethics are beyond reproach; I would trust her with my most personal information. She is a real estate dynamo!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $275K in Rancho Cucamonga, CA.

Melodie has helped my husband and I through 2 purchase transactions within the past 5 years. She is one of the hardest working people I know. There were times during our most recent purchase, when I would email her late into the evening with a question or asking her to make an offer for me, and she would respond immediately, or by the time I turned on my computer in the morning, I would have my offer ready to be signed! (I wonder if she ever sleeps!) She has so much experience and industry knowledge she was able to direct us in seeing things we would have easily missed regarding properties we were interested in. I can't say enough about her! The fact that I have gone back to her and am taking the time to write this review should speak to the fact that she is simply amazing!

Bought a Townhouse home in 2011 for approximately $150K in Ontario, CA.

I have known Melodie for awhile now. She has assisted my whole family in either purchasing or selling our homes. It took me over a year to find the perfect place that fit both my taste and budget and she was so very patient with me. Being a first time home buyer I didn't know anything about the process and was very nervous about the whole thing. She is very knowledgable and took the time to walk me through each step and make me feel very comfortable. I will not ever use anyone else in the future and I would highly reccommend her to everyone.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $1.0M in La Verne, CA.

Melodie Benson is such an excellent real estate professional that I will have to tone down my description of her to insure that she does not sound too good to be true. I met Melodie 16 years ago when I interviewed her along with two other realtors. She impressed me with her insight, excellent listening skills and in depth knowledge. Since I was both buying and selling ( and did both at that time), it was extremely important to select the right person. One who would market my home effectively and diligently, while at the same time showing patience and attentiveness when I was seeking to buy. I was pleased beyond my expectations. I tend to be cynical and wary of "salespeople". Over the years my husband and I have bought and sold both homes to occupy and homes to use as investments. We always work with Melodie when purchasing in California. She knows how to handle whatever the current market's particular challenges are. We have bought in buyers' markets, sellers' markets and even in today's market, which defies description! She is the top person when faced with the intricacies of short sales, repos and all of the other buzz words of today's real estate world. In short, she was the best when we met her, and she is still the best today.
