We made two outstanding decisions when beginning the process to sell our home in the Hollywood Hills: 1) Choosing Melissa Shahin as our agent. 2) Following Melissa’s sale strategy that exactly met our family’s needs and goals. The guidance, knowledge and follow-through that she delivered was best-in-class. Our home was marketed beautifully and in escrow within days of being presented. Melissa communicated both professionally and kindly with every individual involved in our sale. She was the perfect representation for us – start to finish. And we were THRILLED with the outcome. Thank you, Melissa! Landi S
Many, many thanks to our agent, Melissa Shahin, for ALL her expertise and help with purchasing our new home. Melissa’s guidance across the transaction which at times became complicated, (from initial offer to close) kept this purchase moving. She was a problem-solver, thoughful regarding next steps and action oriented. There was never a moment that we weren’t kept fully informed – which brought us a lot of confidence. Without a doubt, Melissa’s strong industry experience and collegial style with the seller’s agent brought this sale to close. We are so appreciative and love our new home! Johnathan W
If you are shopping for a realtor, literally stop searching! Melissa is your gal! Melissa sort of fell into our lap, as our original realtor moved and then referred us to her. I honestly wouldn't have wanted it any other way as Melissa was a gift to us! She helped us sell our condo for WAY over asking price and was with us every step of the way in our search for a single family home. From the moment we initially met, I felt so much peace and confidence about our future endeavors with her. Not only was she so kind, but she really took the time to listen to our wants and needs, and then make them come true! She has many connections and helpful people in her radius, too. Her communication was above anything we've experienced (and we've dealt with other realtors). We never felt like we were just another customer. She was there for everything; from the painters touching up our condo, to the final walk through of the home we purchased. I could go ON and ON about why I'm thankful for Melissa, but I'd say, you should just experience her for yourself. LA is beyond lucky to have her in the market. It is possible to sell OR buy with Melissa by your side; even in this current crazy market! Christine T
We had the best experience in buying and selling thanks to Melissa. She really helped guide us through selling our condo during the pandemic and while it was a tough situation to be in, her knowledge and professionalism made us feel very comfortable with our decisions. We also had to fix up our place and she had great recommendations for contractors. And when it came to buying, she was always available and patient with us. We ended up getting the townhouse we wanted in an extremely competitive market! Cannot recommend enough. Thank you Melissa!
If you want top dollar and shortest time on market then Melissa should be your go-to. I trusted her vision for some minor "remodeling" and staging, and it paid off in presentation and performance on the market. She's very accommodating and easy to work/communicate with, but if you give her some freedom on key listing decision making she'll really come through! Will be recommending her for anyone I know selling a property! Tim W
