Comprehensive Review:

I would like to thank Melvina for all of the work she did in getting my property to close. Early morning texting, late night phone calls and emails; always positive and always cheerful. She was a terrific and professional lady to have representing me! What a truly great person you have representing your company! If ever again we are in need for an agent up in the San Diego area or know of someone that is looking for a good agent and company, I would definitely suggest Melvina and her company! Thank you again for treating me like family.

I enthusiastically recommend Melvina Selfani to anyone looking for a smart and dynamic real estate broker who knows how to get a home sold quickly and for top dollar. She and her team are exceptional in every way. Through her hard-work, knowledge, high energy and marketing savvy, I received a full-priced, cash offer for my home in La Jolla after just four days on the market. Selling one's home can be very stressful and Melvina was engaged throughout the entire process, from our first meeting through the close of escrow, and I am in her debt!!!

Comprehensive Review:

Melvina has a wealth of knowledge in the real estate market in the San Diego area. She has been involved in three properties for me; one in Point Loma for $1.6 million; another in La Mesa for $1.2 Million and another in San Diego for $438K. She has a keen business mind and uses that talent for the benefit of the Buyer, Seller and in Buyer/Seller relationships. She has excellent contacts to facilitate the sale or purchase of properties. She is a superb negotiator and strives for fairness and balance in working through the purchase, escrow and closing proceedings. She has excellent listening skills and works to understand and secure what her clients want. If you want a professional, dynamic team, contact Melvina!

Comprehensive Review:

Melvina Selfani proved to be one of the best Real Estate professional's I have ever worked with. She was able to find a qualified buyer for our house in just 5 days, and we had an solid offer within the first week of listing our house. Melvina is a go getter, and works hard at making everying go smoothly. We were under a tight timeline to get our house closed to be able to purchase another home, and she did everything possible to make sure we met the deadlines set up. During the selling process, Melvina even worked with the buyers bank to ensure they were not dragging their feet getting the loan closed. She is the type of agent that works long hours to make sure everything goes to plan, and is tough when necessary to make sure the entire selling process is painless. I believe there are a very few real estate professional's that really fight for their clients, and Melvina is on that short list. I highly recommend Melvina to anyone who has had a bad agent experience, she is a testament that there are a few good agents still out there who work hard, and can make things happen when it really counts, such as when your family is depending on it!

Comprehensive Review:

Melvina is an excellent real estate agent. She's is very patient with us as we looked and complained about every nook and cranny inside each house. She was available to us 24/7. It didn't matter whether I contacted her by email, phone at night or whether it was Sunday she was always there. Then when we would come back with a low offer every time as in El Capitan, Monaco, la Palmas, she would have to turn on her excellent negotiating skills to convince them that we were the best buyers for them. The closing couldn't go any smoother since she always had all the paperwork in order. Too bad there aren't more agents like her. Melvina makes Century 21 look good. They are very lucky to have her representing them. The following describes my appreciation: One day a vision of loveliness appeared before us wearing a crown of 5 golden stars. She led us through a jungle of real estate until we reached Via Escuda. Once I saw it I had an irresistible urge to drink a cup of coffee. I knew this was the house for me. We asked this vision of loveliness with its crown of 5 golden stars, what her name was. She smiled and whispered, "Melvina". Now every morning as I sip my cup of coffee I whisper to myself, "I'm home", "I'm home."

Melvina was a pleasure to work with during the sale of our home as well as the purchase of its replacement. She is a consummate professional who was very pro-active, patient, responsive, and punctual. After Melvina learned exactly what we were looking for, she made it her mission to find the right property for us. No pressure and no game-playing. She did all the little (and big) things right. Once again, Melvina is a pleasure to work with!

Melvina is the most professional person I have had the pleasure to meet. She is honest, kind, has a lot of integrity, and a very hard worker. Her clients are her top priority. In addition, she always has a positive attitude and a great smile. I loved working with her. My home sold in two weeks. When the home was shown Melvina made time to be at each showing to point out the many wonderful features of my home. I was stressed because I had a 30 day escrow. Melvina helped me through it. Since things went so well, I had her list my duplex, which also sold in two weeks. She is competent and pays attention to detail, so thing go smoothly. I highly recommend her. She is the best.

Comprehensive Review:

Melvina helped us sell our home and find a new one to buy. She is a very motivated realtor who worked hard to get us the best price she could. We were co-buying a home with our son and daugter-in-law who lived out of town and she made sure we all stayed informed and that all the details and paperwork went smoothly even though we were in two different cities. She is very professional and even sent me flowers when I had to have emergency surgery. I would definitely give her a 5-star rating and would use Melvina again and recommend her to my family and friends.

Comprehensive Review:

We were looking for our dream home to live in and soon retire in, we were very picky on what we would buy. Melvina listened to our desires and in one day found us a home that matched what we were looking for. We found Melvina to be very friendly, honest, fair and trustworthy, she handled our purchase professionally and with knowledge. She was readily available by phone and email to answer our questions. My husband and I found that the seller's agent would not listen to reason on one issue, it appeared to us that if we stood our ground, we'd lose the deal. Melvina encouraged us to not back down and to continue to ask for what's fair. With Melvina's help, the issue was resolved in our favor. It was clear to us that Melvina's first priority was to help us get our dream home at a fair and reasonable price. We highly recommend Melvina for those buying or selling a house. Thanks Melvina!

Comprehensive Review:

Prior to hiring Melvina as our Realtor, we had two well respected local Realtors attempt to sell our home, without success. Melvina contacted and actively solicited interested prospective buyers and sold our home in two and a half (2 1/2) months. Melvina is a hard working professional and a credit to her profession. She is honest and sincere. We call her a friend.

A prompt, excellent, smart and on the spot agent I ever seen. For me I have been searching a home for over a year and a half, contacted four agents and none of them could get me what I have been looking for with my wife. But finally we succeeded and many Thanks to Melvina with less than 30min and one click of her mouse she got the house for us. I appreciate you [Melvina]; you are the best!

Comprehensive Review:

Five values describe Melvina. Passionate about her clients, and her job, hardworking, responsive, honesty, and integrity. Melvina made us feel that she is buying the house for herself and we trusted every single word she told us and did not let us down. We are not from San Diego and we know nothing about the region, Melvina was our trusted advisor and I would recommend her to all my friends who I care about. Thank you Melvina!

Comprehensive Review:

Melvina knocked on the door of my house and said she could sell it and get us into the neighborhood that we desired to be in. I was initially skeptical, but she was so confident, gracious, and compelling that we said we'd give it a try. The house we were living in at the time sold quickly, and she was able to negotiate with the buyers to have the sale be contingent on us finding another house. When a house came on the market in the neighborhood we desired, we made a bid and were selected. The problem though was it was a short sale! Thus, we had a four month waiting period. The entire time Melvina continued to actively pursue other backup home options, keep our buyers happy and patient, and was persistent with the short sale people. In the end, we landed the home of our dreams just like she promised. I'm amazed how it all worked out, but when I reflect on the entire process - Melvina was on the front lines making things happen just like she promised when she originally knocked on my door! I would highly recommend her to be your agent. She's kind, gracious, thoughtful, and aggressive. These are the perfect ingredients for a great realtor!

Comprehensive Review:

I had sold a luxury home last year in a down market. Through Melvina's expertise she negotiated a higher amount than what the buyer wanted to pay, which pleased me. She overlooks nothing and has her client's interests first. When it came time to purchase another residence there was no question as to whom I would call and she got the place I wanted. Whenever any issue came up she was always responsive immediately. There is no one better.

Comprehensive Review:

I cannot say enough great things about Melvina Selfani. She is so hard working, professional and caring. I was in a difficult situation with my home and needed an agent who knew their “stuff”. She worked with my attorneys who were working with the bank. Even my attorneys were amazed at Melvina’s knowledge and care to detail. Melvina had total control of the situation and was at each and every showing of my home, which I desired. She got the house sold very quickly. Escrow was a breeze. Thank you, Melvina, for making a tough situation less tough. You are an ultimate professional. I will look forward to you being my “go-to” real estate agent when I am able to purchase my next property.

Comprehensive Review:

Buying or selling a home is a giant step for anyone; making a decision to partner with a person you do not know personally to sell your home is not easy. I knew I made the right decision selecting Melvina Selfani to list my home after spending 15 minutes with her. Melvina is a pure professional, confident and extremely knowledgeable of the market. I would not hesitate to recommend Melvina. Her communication and negotiating skills are strong. Melvina was a great guide during the selling process; answering my questions quickly as well as guiding the transaction to a quick and easy close.

Melvina is masterful at selling or purchasing property during this very difficult market. She was instrumental in helping me purchase the home of my dreams during a very difficult negotiation. She also sold a piece of property in a different area for me within three days of placing it on the market. Without Melvina none of this would have been possible. She is a real person who helps real people attain their dreams.

Comprehensive Review:

Melvina is a shark! She knows her stuff and gets you top dollar for your home! We short sold our home and she had a buyer in the first 4 days. The whole process took 3 months from beginning to end. She was very responsive and on top of everything. She called the bank daily to ensure they were moving in the process.

- Brian & Ann Taylor

 

Comprehensive Review:

After looking at 50+ properties we finally found a home that was well suited to us but complications arose on the seller's end that resulted in a contingent offer. Melvina worked diligently with the sellers to help us get the home, but encouraged us to continue looking at homes, just in case. Her persistence, tenacity and positive attitude is what lead us to our current home, which is far better suited to us and is our dream home. We were lucky we had her to help us along because we might still be waiting on the other home! She and her husband Tom were very friendly and responsive to all of our requests, even after business hours. The person she recommended for financing was an absolute gem, helping us through the financing of a new home and the refinancing of our existing home with very few complications. I would highly recommend Melvina to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She seems to have a sixth sense for the ins and outs of this business and she will work diligently to help you achieve your goals. She also adds a personal touch to everything she does so you feel like a friend rather than a client.

Comprehensive Review:

I am very pleased to be able to write this letter of recommendation for Melvina Selfani. We have recently closed a tremendously long and complicated short sale where we were the sellers of the property involved with the transaction and Melvina was the agent for the seller and buyer. Melvina consistently proved devotion, passion and tenacity by keeping a dedicated close watch on all pieces of the transaction and generously offering her help whenever it was possible. Melvina's assistance in this process extended from setting up a solid communication between all parties and stretched all the way to helping our Loan Company negotiate the selling price and paperwork in a timely manner. To reiterate, we were nothing but pleased with Melvina's assistance and help throughout this process and we would recommend her with the strongest endorsements.

Comprehensive Review:

I had the responsibility of selling my Aunt's home recently and that was not an easy thing to do. This is a home she has lived in almost all of her married life, that we as a family have had a million memories at, so it was not easy. I asked for referrals from friends and selected her because in observing how she responded initially to my questions, I knew we would work together well. I, without any hesitation, highly recommend Melvina Selfani - she was an absolute rock star. Melvina is such a professional. She is quick, thorough, responsive, compassionate, driven, hard working, communicates and explains things well and knows how to deal with challenging situations with grace and care. She brought so much comfort and ease with what quickly became a stressful because with the complication of Covid-19 mid sale. Add to that - she is a beautiful human being. I am so grateful for having been referred to her and so happy I chose to work with her.
