    • Melissa just sold our home and we couldn't be more thrilled with the great work she did. She sold our home for top dollar and made every aspect of the transaction really smooth and easy. She has a lot of experience and provides an exceptional level of service.

    • Melissa Gutierrez - Knows Real Estate !! I was very impressed with the investment home she helped us sell last year when we were ready. She has a very solid knowledge base. Melissa listened to our needs and was able to get us exactly what we were looking for. She was put into a difficult situation with our renters and the buyers and the tight time frames. Melissa handled everything with the highest level of patience paired with a very high level of service, communication and professionalism sets her apart by far. Excellent job Melissa ! Thank You.

Melissa handles the high pressure and stressful times with patients and grace. I'm a stress case already with 4 kids and a full time working family. Melissa I'm writing to say thank you for the care and time you took to help our family move to our new home in AZ !

    • I really enjoyed working with Melissa. She was so helpful and easy to work with. She sold our home and helped us buy our current home. She is professional, responsive and trustworthy. Her experience and track record gave me the confidence to work with her. She negotiated and got the best price for our house and then turned around and got us the best deal for our current home! So happy to have Melissa as my real estate agent for life!! Thank you Melissa!!

    • I found Melissa 7 years ago when the real estate market was picking it self up and dusting it's self off from the crash of 08. I have lived in San Diego and surrounding parts for my whole life of 46 years. I have experienced 8 different home sales over that time and none of the agents I've worked with are as real estate savvy or market intelligent as Melissa is. The biggest obstacles can be very stressing and cause some a lot of worry and Melissa took the lead at every turn. Melissa negotiated a excellent sales price for our home, the other agent had basically checked out and was not answering to our requests and Melissa was able to sort out the issues, part her way through the drama and grab the home sale by the horns and close our very complicated home sale. I trust Melissa and have for many years with our home sales. Melissa is very professional and won;t be pushed around by other agents that think they know it all or want it all. I have referred Melissa to 5 of my friends and they love her and have said she is awesome. One of my friends recently told me Melissa has over 275 home sales in her career... I believe it she's Awesome, Buyer and sellers would be luck to have her be their agent.

    • Melissa is the type of agent you would want in a bind and also hug and call a friend. She and I met a couple of months ago at a mutual friends party and we hit it off ! I was in the middle of a messy situation and it was time to sell and move to another home to step into the next chapter of my life. Melissa explained all the options for getting the home ready to sell, and removing all of the personal items so that the new buyer could look at the home as more a blank canvas and Melissa was right. I trusted her and she came through big time. I refer her to all my friends and family and even my ex and I agree she did a great job getting us into our next chapter. The home sale was complicated with the buyer wanting alot of things done to the property before they would close the escrow, but Melissa negotiated and looked out for our families best interest. I know some people think it's an easy job, being a real estate agent but that's a myth. I've worked with others in my life and Melissa is thoroughly experienced and showed she wasn't going to let any of the life things we were throwing at her get in the way of closing the home sale. Kudos to Melissa - she's a diamond in the crowd.

    • Melissa made a big impression on me in our first conversation! We had listed our home on the market last year and ended up not selling it as I think we were asking a little too much for the home at the time. The previous agent did a good job and seemed to know enough to get the home on the market, take 'ok pictures and followed our requests about showing instructions but the service was just ok... Then we talk to Melissa this year and wow what a difference it is to talk to someone who is so extremely knowledgeable and experienced. Melissa will be listing our home in the next 40 or so days, after we paint, upgrade a few things and tidy up the landscaping. I think the biggest mistake us home owners make is hiring the first person we talk to and trusting that they will sell the home. You need to hire either Melissa or someone like her - She know the market, knows how to handle objections, knows how to negotiate, knows how to market a home correctly, knows what shes doing and leads by example. When you talk to her you'll see. Good on you Melissa and call her !

    • Melissa is a great realtor, she helped us buy a home last year and I was thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with her. I was referred by my mom who had worked with Melissa years ago. This was my first home and I was a nervous mess. She is so patient and help my hand through all the millions of questions I had. Melissa is very experienced and knows her stuff. She got me the home of our Dreams and I can say that she is the best in San Diego with a doubt ! Thank you Mel

    • Melissa is a 10 star agent ! She works non stop and was able to get the home we wanted. I loved working with her and just referred her to my best friend who is home shopping in Mission Valley. I love, love our new home and we would have never found it without Melissa. The home was off the market and the seller was out of state and the renter was looking to move. Melissa was using her bag of tricks to call agents around the neighborhood and somehow dug up the fact that the home was going to be coming to market and was able to get us in during the fix up process and we loved it and bought it right there. Thank you Melissa, Thank You. Call Melissa she's the BEST agent in the industry
