Margaret Melville

Contact me to sell your home today! The Melville Group

Originally from Chicago, I moved to the Sacramento area and immediately fell in love with the outdoor lifestyle and the people. Having experienced firsthand the stress involved with relocation and purchase of a home, I saw the perfect opportunity to help others in a similar situation.

After spending 8 years working for large traditional real estate brokerages, the decision in 2011 to open The Melville Group was easy. Simply put, I wanted to give clients a more personalized service experience. At The Melville Group, we specialize in helping relocation buyers, from as close as the South Bay to as far as India, find the right neighborhood, commute, lifestyle and home in Folsom. Our clients include employees of Intel, Apple and Google.

Every listing with The Melville Group, from a condo to a million dollar home, receives the five star treatment. This includes a consultation with a home stager, listing photos from my professional photographer, virtual tour and high quality flyers. My goal is to sell your home for the highest prices in the shortest amount of time with the most favorable terms. My team and I at The Melville Group are highly skilled at marketing and negotiation.

I look forward to working with you.

Margaret did a great job throughout the entire process. She assisted with the purchase of our new home and helped to sell our previous. She is always responsive and clear in communication. If ever there was a slight wrinkle (which we know there always is - nothing is perfect when buying and selling a home!), she was transparent and respectful in every interaction. We have even had questions after the fact and she continues to make herself available to us. Highly recommend!

We are very pleased with the work that Margaret and her team did with presenting and selling our duplex. In all our interactions with her she was professional and supportive of our goals for the sale. Her team also made the process smooth and easy--not to mention stress free.
I would highly recommend Margaret and her team for any real estate transactions--her work was phenomenal in all aspects.

Client Testimonial

Margaret did a fantastic job getting us into our home. She provided very good advice when developing our initial and counter offers, as well as negotiating the request for repairs. Prior to closing, she made herself available at the home multiple times to let in contractors so that we could obtain bids on work we wanted to have done. This allowed us to get a jump start on the work rather than wait for closing. And to top it off, she gave us a very generous buyer credit at closing as part of the Home Loan Buyer's Advantage Program with the Golden One Credit Union. Margaret was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a hard-working, honest, and professional real estate agent. Thank you Margaret!

Margaret is just the best realtor I've had, period! Over the past twenty five years, I bought four different homes and rented once. On each occasion I had a different realtor representing me and Margaret was, by far, the best of them all. Here is why:
1) She knows her market well and helped me price my house perfectly and to my satisfaction. And we sold it at that price.
2) She is extremely reliable and trustworthy. She is prompt in returning calls and following through her tasks promptly.
3) She has a great ecosystem around her to help with prepping the house, doing repairs for a reasonable price, helping with the mortgage etc.
4) She works hard to sell her listings. She held open houses, scouted for buyers, worked with my tenants to prep the house, tried to find financing for the buyers and all this with little to no encouragement or involvement on my part.

To anyone who is looking for an agent in the Sacramento area, I strongly recommend Margaret and I do so with absolutely no reservation.

Loved Margaret as our realtor. Never felt pressured to buy. When we wanted to see a home she made herself available whenever we needed to view the home. Helped us ask the right questions when looking at homes and told us when the home is a bad choice and to look elsewhere. Highly recommend her to anyone that wants to home buy at their own pace. She was very patient with us when we took nearly 5 months to decide.

Margaret was absolutely wonderful! My husband and I are first time buyers and she really took the time to walk us through every step of the process. We loved how professional she was and how she worked around our difficult schedules. If you're looking for a house, I highly recommend Margaret Melville as I have recommended her to all of my close friends and relatives.

Margaret and her associates at the Melville Group are absolutely first class professionals, who really care about providing a completely fulfilling experience in the sometimes trying process of choosing and purchasing a home. Her technical and resource knowledge, sensitivity to needs, superbly mature relational skills, negotiating ability when necessary and complete follow through in detail are in my opinion unmatched. I could not be happier with my choice of her as my RE agent!!

This is our first home purchase and Margaret was wonderful to work with. She was professional, always friendly and willing to answer questions, and very responsive. Margaret was also very flexible with our schedules, which we greatly appreciated. The home buying process can be overwhelming and confusing, but Margaret helped relieve a lot of the stress. She kept us updated, provided clear timelines, and offered resources and advice. We are very pleased to have worked with her to purchase our first home. Thank you Margaret!

Margaret is a very patient and knowledgeable realtor. I would refer and recommend her to my friends in a heart beat. We have used her services three times already (Buying twice and selling once). She is very prompt and even helped us while she was on vacation, where time was a major constraint, with making an offer on our current home that we saw during an Open house. She is also very good with referrals for services like handyman, painter, carpet store, locksmith etc.

Working with Margaret was the best decision we could have made. She was extremely helpful and patient as this was our first purchase as newlyweds. Having busy schedule, work and attending school Margaret made the home buying process easy to understand. She responds timely and kept us updated every step of the way! We are so happy in our new home and I am planning to recommend family members & friends to her as I know they will be very taken care of.
