Melody successfully found our next home in Lakewood Hills.  To say she was a great realtor is a vast understatement.  She is highly experienced, hard-working, and thorough.

She was incredibly supportive before we found the house, during the escrow process, and after we closed.  We have become friends and neighbors through this process, and we are very grateful to her…

I wanted to write and thank you for all the great work you did for me and my mom to sell my folk’s home in Santa Rosa.

It was a very difficult time, as my father had died in December, and my mom had to move into an assisted living facility. I was left to deal with cleaning out the house and preparing it for putting it on the market.

I was anxious about how I would be able to deal with it all, being that I live in Southern California and the house is in Northern California…

Melody Montero first helped us purchase a home, and through that long process, we became friends. So naturally, when it came time to sell that home and purchase our dream home we knew Melody would be our Realtor of choice on both homes. The sale was a breeze! Melody got us well over our asking price in less than 24 hours, and then went on to get us several backup offers. Purchasing our dream property, however, required a bit more patience. My husband…

We just purchased a home with the help of Melody Montero at Coldwell Banker in Santa Rosa. If you are lucky enough to have her as your realtor, I’m sure you will be as happy as we are with her great client service. It took a while to find a home and with no fault of Melody but we wanted to make sure we found the right house. When you work with Melody, she listens to your needs and works tirelessly to find… (Read More)

Melody was reffered by three of my co-workers. If I had to rate Melody Montero out of 10, it would be 1000/10!

I remained well-informed through the entire process and was able to make educated decisions because of Melody.

She is Gold!

Tim and Jennifer Scanlan

Indefatigable, knowledgeable and experienced are three words that accurately describe Melody Montero, our real estate agent. Melody patiently showed us scores of homes for sale over several months until we finally made an offer on a house that became our new home. Once that was accomplished, Melody guided us in the successful marketing of our previous home. And Bingo! Just a few days after it went on the market, it sold! (And for more than our asking price.)

We heartily recommend…

My husband David and I have trusted in Melody not only once, but twice to help us make our dreams a reality. Her experience in Sonoma County Real Estate is unmatched. Her attention to detail in every aspect of the transaction from start to finish helped us to feel secure when making huge, sometimes difficult decisions.

Melody helped us maintain realistic expectations regarding our price point and the state of the housing market, which ultimately lead to the purchase of our…

It is with pleasure and gratitude that Linda and I share our comments about our experience with Montero regarding the listing and selling of our home.

We have purchased and sold many homes over the years, but have never encountered the level of excellence, personal care, and attention to detail that we have experienced with Melody.

Melody’s advice and guidance from the time we listed, through all the inspections, staging, showings, and finalization of the sale of our home was..

My husband and I lived happily for five years in our home in the beautiful Lakewood Hills community. Once we were both retired from the workforce, we wanted to spend more time with our grandchildren, the majority of whom were in the Austin and San Antonio areas of Texas. After much thought and deliberation, we decided to make the move to Austin.

Once our decision was made we hired Melody to be our realtor. We wanted an agent who lived in our community who had both the…

First Time Buyers

We are living in the house of our dreams, and we would not be here if it wasn’t for Melody Montero. Like so many other homes on the market in these times, this house was days away from foreclosure and auction. Melody literally worked magic to keep this house from slipping away from us. She is extremely knowledgeable about short-sales and foreclosures, which is a must if you are looking for a house today. We were first time home buyers and…

I Now Have The Garden I Have Always Dreamed Of

I was about to give up hope that I would find a home in Sebastopol in time to close the deal on my condo in LA. In a last ditch effort, I called my sister who lives in Sebastopol to ask her for help. She immediately referred immediately me to Melody Montero, who had helped her and her family find a wonderful home in Sebastopol. Melody jumped into action. She communicated back and forth…

A year and a half ago, I realized that I was paying high rent and investing in someone else’s future. I started to look around for something to buy and the agents I called didn’t seem interested in helping me, maybe because I didn’t have a lot of money to spend. One day I was looking in the paper for properties and saw one in my range and area, and the real estate agent showing it was Melody Montero. I called her and immediately she was “on my team.” She called me back to update me…

The Cruz-Zamora Family

About 4 years ago, I, Adolfo Cruz, decided to bring my whole family to the United States. Our dream was to someday buy a house that will make us feel proud. Since my family is kind of big, because I have 5 children, it was hard for me to think of buying a house. However, thanks to Melody, soon our dream was going to come true. She knew how to guide and help us to buy what for us means a familiar patrimony. In our new house, we have shared a lot of memorable moments with the people we loved….

Melody helped us find our dream home when the market was very tight. We looked for 9 months and were very particular about what we wanted and where we wanted to live. Melody not only respected this, but was as patient as could be with us, while persevering and presenting us with new options continually. She looked at all the houses first, so as not to waste our time, and she had a real good sense of what we would be happy with.

Since we have purchased our house a year and a half ago,…

Melody Montero listens, talks straightforwardly, does what she commits to, is diligent, is pleasant, knows her business, is honest, is ethical, leaves clients happy…and is very successful at buying and selling.

What’s not to like about that?

I put my condo on the market to move in with my fiancé. I thought saving a few bucks would be beneficial, and I chose to go with a service that, with my hard work would help me sell my condo, providing some marketing and all the legalese at a substantial price cut in realtor fees. Well there’s a tradeoff with this and my condo sat on the market for 90 days with little action.

I then hired Melody who in a whirlwind of activity worked up a game plan to get my condo noticed…

The Cruz-Luna Family

We heard about Melody Montero through one of our relatives who had bought their house with Melody’s help. Melody was very patient with us and helped us find the home we wanted. In spite of language differences she managed to explain the entire process from beginning to end. She also explained to us every one of the documents that needed to be signed. Most important is that she guided us to find a house in a good neighborhood.

Moving isn’t on our top 10 list of fun things to do. It slid even further down our list when we found ourselves simultaneously looking for a new home and needing to sell the home we were currently occupying. Lucky for us, we found Melody Montero!

Melody took the time to learn what was important to us in our home search and never wasted our time showing us inappropriate homes or homes outside our price range. She understood that putting our current home on the market prior to…

Melody has integrity and works very hard to find just the right house for her clients.

She listened to our likes and dislikes and didn’t try to sell us something we didn’t need. Melody not only sold our old house, she helped us tremendously on the purchase of our new home. She even found us a moving company!

Melody Montero goes beyond the call of duty, and we highly recommend her.

We Couldn’t Have Made This Move Without Melody!

When our family first decided to relocate to Sonoma County, we were a little apprehensive about the process of finding the right home. Not only did we have a very strict list of criteria for our new home, but we were living nearly two hours away from the area. Thank God we found Melody! She worked tirelessly to find us the perfect home and maintained nothing but a positive and encouraging attitude throughout the process…

Melody is the best! She has been easy to work with and is always there when we need her. Just when we had given up hope on a home that we liked, Melody got us into it. We didn’t think it was possible. We love Melody and would recommend her as a realtor for anyone!

For my family, the best thing was to meet Melody Montero! She’s a very nice lady and an honest person. Although we looked at many houses, she was very patient and worked with us to get the right home. We were very excited!

We really recommend her and we have also become friends. We’re so happy with the house!

Even though she doesn’t speak Spanish, she has the enthusiasm and is able to help us understand and to get the house we were looking for.

Our dream was to have a house as soon as possible.

We looked for several real estate agents, but not one gave us the confidence and honesty we needed. In Melody Montero we found both qualities.

Melody really worked hard for us, to make our dream come true. She is an excellent real estate agent, friendly and patient with all of her clients. We just want to say thanks to Melody Montero, for all of her help.

For those who are in need of an excellent Real Estate agent.

My wife Jennie and I found out that we would be moving to Sonoma County due to a job change. It was already July and this left us very little time to buy a new home before the children would start school. After calling several real estate companies, we were convinced that we would have to rent due to the “hot market”. Agents were suggesting that the price range we were looking in would be next to impossible to find…

Ginette was a single woman looking for her first home. We shared her concerns and a few of her dreams and were rather lucky to find the right home for the right price in a relative short amount of time. There is a moment of joy when watching a client turn the key to their front door and step into their dream home. This is what motivates me most of all.

Dear Melody,

You made this such a wonderful experience. Thank you so much for all your heart, energy, and Virgo-an quality!…

I had owned my condo for almost 11 years and had spent the last few years getting it just the way I wanted – remodeling the kitchen & bathrooms, installing hardwood floors, painting, decorating. But I was feeling the need for more space, a garage and yard where I could have a garden yet at the same time reluctant to give up what I had created.

About this same time, I received a postcard in the mail from Melody Montero who had recently sold another property in our condo complex. I…

Melody handled the sale of our mother’s Bennett Valley house for my brother and me. As a career real estate agent myself, I know the difference between good service and mediocre service, and Melody’s work was not merely good, it was excellent. She is especially strong in the three areas which matter most in the marketing of a home–setting the asking price, physically preparing the home for showing, and negotiations with prospective buyers. I recommend Melody to anyone selling residential…
