We highly recommend The Melville Team for all your real estate needs
"When my family was faced with new military orders and a transfer out of San Diego to the Santa Clarita Valley, we found ourselves selling a home in San Diego and needing to buy one in SCV. Our realtor in San Diego gave us Brian's contact info and recommended we contact him to help us find a new home in SCV. BEST CALL WE EVER MADE! We were buying at a time when the inventory was super low and houses were only lasting a day or two on the market. Brian's knowledge, efficiency, commitment and ability to negotiate and fight for us was unparalleled. He helped find us the perfect house and was able to work his magic to negotiate and write an offer that beat out 5 other offers! In addition to being a killer agent, Brian is also an overall great guy. He is smart, witty and made the house buying process so much fun! We highly recommend him for all your realtor needs!"

Courteous, prompt, knowledgeable, patient and personable
"My husband and I HIGHLY recommend Brian to any potential buyers or sellers.
I thought buying a home was going to be stressful, luckily, we found Brian and the process was easy and stress-free. He was courteous, prompt, knowledgeable, patient and personable.
My husband and I found ourselves having to buy a home in less than two months. We did not know where to begin, so we read reviews about Brian Melville and thought he seemed perfect for our search. His knowledge of the area definitely helped us decide on the which areas in Santa Clarita we would be interested in searching. He listened to our needs and concerns about home ownership and responded with listings that fit the criteria.
As we did not know the area, Brian personally drove us from house to house. He took the time to explain the location, the advantages to different types of homes and the issues associated with each house (remodeling costs, property maintenance, taxes, etc.). He was incredibly informed, he answered questions we did not know to ask.
We found the home we were looking for that day and made an offer. The owner accepted and a month later we moved into our new home.
During the entire process, Brian was more than happy to jump on a call or text to answer any of our many, many questions that arose. Even after we purchased the home, he has been helpful in recommending painters, electricians, plumbers, etc.
We could not thank him and his team enough for their help and support in finding out new home."
Made a stressful situation as painless as possible
"I have used Brian to both purchase a home and sell a home. Purchase was seamless, he knows all the ins and outs of the entire area and really set me up in the best possible location within my budget. He was respectful of my wants and needs and was quickly able to locate a property that fit all of my wants and needs within my budget and did not try and push me into something that i could not afford. My sale went even better, i relocated and needed to sell the property in the area, i never had to set foot in the place and he was able to coordinate everything without me being there including repairs, clean up, sale prep, exc. He priced it well and i got a full asking price offer within a week and the sale went through and closed actually a day earlier than expected. He made a stressful situation as painless as possible. I have referred him to every single one of my friends and family and every one has had nothing other than an amazing experience with him. If you are looking to buy or sell in that area i wouldn't bother calling anyone else. He's always available and always makes you feel like you are the only client that he has."

Knowledge and negotiating skills
"We resently sold our home listed by Brian. The process and results were everything expected and more. Brian’s knowledge and negotiating skills made every thing easy and helped us avoid possible pitfalls. Because of Brian’s professional demeanor It was a joy to work with him. If you want to sell your home fast and without headaches or worries Brian is you man."

Knowledgeable, PATIENT, and a hard working agent
"Kristen is the best! She helped the process of buying a home so stress free. She is extremely knowledgeable, PATIENT, and a hard working agent. We were super picky individuals but she Still spent time to get to know us so she can find the perfect home for us. Nothing can stop this lady, she is amazing!!!! She fought for us! She is seriously the best agent!!"
Kristen and the entire Melville Team were incredibly helpful
"Kristen and the entire Melville Team were incredibly helpful with the sale of our home. They took the time to explain the sale process as we moved through the steps. Kristen kept me updated regularly on the sale and was a true professional. It didn't matter what time of the day it was, she was there to help."
Our home sold in 2 weeks time
"Brian is very enthusiastic and has a true interest in selling your property. He is positive in his approach and does the little extras necessary for a good presentation from taking pictures to writing an article that will tell the attractive side of your home and property. He did not always follow up regularly, but as it turned out, nothing had transpired that he needed to report to us. We chose Brian and his team because of the number of sales they made in the past year. He was extremely pleasant and easy to work with. Our home sold in 2 weeks time for the full asking price. Our experience with him was very good and I would recommend him highly."
- K. Adaire
HIGHLY recommend Brian
"My husband and I HIGHLY recommend Brian. His advice was precise and 100% accurate and because of this we sold our home faster than we anticipated! He made the process stress free."
The process itself was very smooth
"Kristen helped make selling my place easy. I was in a unique situation and she responded to my needs very well. She knew the ins and outs of the market and what I needed to do to get the best out of my home and my situation. The process itself was very smooth for me as she was very much on top of things by keeping me informed, giving me good advice, and keeping the process on track."
- RK Gallagher
We closed on time with out problem
"When I first met Brian I drove from San Diego to Canyon Country to interview several realtors. I met with him and part of his team we drove over to my property which was rented he said after our walk through he said he could sell it within 30 days, being a rental I did not put my home in his hands for a couple months and he touched base with me a couple times "not bugging me". When it was time to sell Brian walked me through the true necessitys this home would need and was able to bring in the contractors to do the work. It was at reasonable costs or below and the people he brought in were amazing themselves. When it was time to sell we sold and he was amazing with all areas and any of my own concerns. We closed on time with out problem and he was able to take charge while I was in San Diego where I live. I can't say enough about Brian and I would not hesitate hiring him again. Anyone may contact me with any questions or concerns."
"Kristen is extremely knowledgable and made sure the purchase process was as smooth as possible. I will definitely be recommending her to my friends and family."
- Ryan B.
I would highly recommend
"As first time home buyers, we were new to everything, Kristen was very patient and kind enough to explain us each and every step and make our experience very smooth. I would highly recommend Kristen as she understood our requirements and showed us home which suited our needs."
- Tanvi & Kunal P.
Exceeded our expectations
"Kristen's attention to detail in all four categories exceeded our expectations. In addition to her exceptional skills in all four categories, Kristen enhanced our home buying experience by keeping it fun, keeping us informed and protected from beginning to end with our specific needs in mind."
- Lisa A.
I am defiantly going to use her again
"I used Kristen because my sister used her coworker that's how we met, so when we were ready to buy our home she was totally attentive to the needs of my family and what we could afford. She is very prompt and early for all of the appointments that we had together. I would definately feel comfortable with referring Leisten to a friend or family member looking to purchase a home. I am defiantly going to use her again as my real estate agent if we ever decide to purchase another home."
- V. Rudder
We highly recommend Brian
"My sister and I recently sold our property in Castaic and we could not have asked for a better partner to work with then Brian Melville. Brian was instrumental in helping us in getting the property upgraded and ready for showing. He not only made sound recommendations, but went above and beyond by meeting my sister at the local Home Depot Store to help pick out the materials and fixtures etc. He also lined up qualified people to do the work and even supervised the work in our absence to ensure quality work was getting done in a timely manner. This was a tremendous help to us as neither my sister nor I were located within a reasonable commute distance of the property. Once the property went on the market Brian and his team kept us updated on all the showings proactively throughout the process. We did not have to chase him for updates which was very refreshing! We highly recommend Brian for any real estate needs as he is very knowledgeable and does not slack off once you sign the listing!"
- Nam T
Exceeded our needs
"Once again Brian delivers what he promises. He has always been and always will be our go to guy! Make the right choice and give this guy a call... We thought it would be impossible to purchase a home that fit our needs when homes were selling like crazy. Not only did he and his team successfully accomplish this but exceeded our needs in less than a week of looking. His team invests their time and walked us through each step and removed all stress from the process."
Brian was an awesome ally
"Brian was an awesome ally in selling my home in Valencia, sticking with me through many months of pondering the right timing, local market conditions, etc. I would highly recommend him."
- Geoff D.
We could not be any happier!
"Brian Melville is amazing! My wife and I went through many real estate agents before we were lucky enough to find him. Brian is extremely honest and knows the market incredibly well. He listens to his clients to get a very good understanding of what they want and then goes to work to find them there dream home. The home Brian found for us was a short sale, and as many of you know, can be a nightmare, and often times have trouble closing. Brian was able to help us navigate through the entire short sale process and did a wonderful job explaining everything along the way. His communication skills go above and beyond. Every person looking to either buy or sell a property needs Brian Melville and his team. Brian found us our dream home and we could not be any happier!"
We strongly recommend Brian and his team
"Selling our home was made easy with Brian and his team. We have two kids, two dogs, and hectic schedules, so the idea of putting our house up for sale sounded very stressful, but Brian convinced us that he could sell our home quickly and he did. Brian sold our house fast and at the price we wanted. His team also helped us with the purchase of our dream home and walked us through all the steps of the escrow process, even responding to late night texts when we had questions or concerns. We strongly recommend Brian and his team to anyone that is interested in buying or selling a home."
"We picked Brian to sell my condo and it was a great experience from beginning to end. He responded to our initial inquiry quickly, had an appointment set up for the next day and came to our initial meeting thoroughly prepared with a binder of information about the local market and comps.
Brian and his staff were thorough and prepared and offered expert guidance throughout the process. They were on top of everything so that when an offer was made and accepted, everything went smoothly. Brian listens and understands the needs of the client, rather than simply trying to make a sale. We would not hesitate to recommend Brian and his team to anyone contemplating selling a home."
The house was sold within 3 days
"Brian was on top of everything. He kept us informed of the progress and totally honest. It was because if Brian our house had 5 offers within 3 days. Needless to say that the house was sold within those 3 days."
- Roy D.
Could not say enough good things
"I worked with the Melville team and I could not say enough good things about all of them. I worked mainly with Kristen and she really guided me throughout the whole process, was super patient, knowledgable and understanding. She was able to find the perfect house in a great neighborhood within my budget before it even hit the market thanks to all her connections. She also put me in touch with a great broker and that made escrow go super smoothly and close in a timely manner."
They definitely get my recommendation
"I had a very specific idea of what I needed and Brian and Kristen found it for me. I had been looking on my own for about 6 months with no luck. The Melville team found what I was looking for and together we closed escrow ahead of schedule. They did a great job. They definitely get my recommendation."
