Sold a home in 2012 in Pacific Beach, San Diego, CA 92109.
Following my father's death Mel helped my sisters and me sell our father's home. His advice on how to prepare the house for sale was sound. We followed it and sold the house quite quickly. He was available when we had questions and walked us through the process with tact. We all appreciated both his professionalism and his sensitivity to our feelings. Mel helped us through a very difficult situation while ensuring we got a good price for the home.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.625M in Mission Bay Park, San Diego, CA.
Mel Burgess is a strong, professional agent who helped sell my previous home quickly after he was placed on the listing. He knows the area and market well, and kept us informed at all times about what was going on in the process. I appreciated his hard work and collaborative style so much that I recently engaged him again to sell my present home.
Bought a Vacant Land home in 2014 in Cortez Hill, San Diego, CA.
Purchased a home in downtown San Diego with Mel in March 2014. Not only was he available almost 24/7, he made the process feel friendly and less daunting. The experience was a little difficult due to litigation issues with the building, but Mel answered all my questions and was able to use a broad range of contacts to finally close the deal. Through Mel's advice (and perhaps a bit of good luck), I wound up saving $25,000 off the asking price.
Bought a home in 2013 in Clairemont Mesa East, San Diego, CA 92117.
We were searching for a home in San Diego for almost a year. The market was just recovering, and the inventory was practically non-existent. Homes were snatched by 'flippers' before they hit the market. All that was left were the ugly ducklings, which even we did not want.
We met Mel at an open house on Christmas Eve. Mel immediately took interest in our search, showed us a few homes on his computer and, when we described our ideal home, he took us to a home that was just getting ready to hit the market. The next day, Mel showed us the home with the selling agent, and that same evening, we signed on the dotted line. This was just the start of our extremely positive experience with Mel. We were living on the East Coast and I was commuting to Europe for work, so we had a very short time on site to have all inspections done, and a lot of paperwork to handle from afar. Mel took care of everything for us. We feel very fortunate to have met Mel that Christmas Eve.
Bought a Condo home in 2014 in Pacific Beach, San Diego, CA.
Even with positive experiences I seldom recommend a person, service or product. My experience with Mel Burgess requires an exception.
Mel's attention to not only the current posted available properties but also to my personal retirement residence goal led him to actively investigate a property recently withdrawn from the market that met my needs and hopes perfectly.
Thanks to Mel's aggressiveness and flexibility we closed on this northern Pacific Beach property the end of January 2014. Awesome!
Bought a home in 2013 in Carmel Valley, San Diego, CA 92130.
Mel helped me bought three properties in the last few years. He is very knowledgeable and accomplished each step through out the process in a timely fashion. The experiences were all pleasant and I highly recommend Mel as a strong agent for the San Diego areas.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $550K in Carmel Mountain, San Diego, CA.
I've worked with other agents in the past, and Mel stands out as having the proper mix of passion and professionalism. He knew just how to handle a strong seller's market when we were buying a home. I was also able to witness his excellent skills as a listing agent for both traditional sale and short sale clients when my friends were selling.
