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 is one of the few professional agents and I love working with Margaret and referring her to my clients. Margaret is not only highly knowledgeable of the real estate process, she is professional and is always looking at ways to bring the most benefit to her clients. She is great at getting clients into contract on the home they love, when that is not always easy to do. And then once in contract, makes sure her clients are protected in getting their home delivered in the best possible condition at the lowest possible cost to them. And to top off everything she does during the process, she remains available and helps wherever needed after the home closes escrow. I know, because she did this for me and I've seen her do it many times over the years. If you need a Realtor, Margaret is an amazing choice!

Margaret was the selling agent on our property when we purchased it. We had (fond? terrified?) memories of how she left our previous realtor nervous and unsure, and we knew we needed her as OUR selling agent. Margaret is the definition of Boss Lady - she gets stuff done and doesn't play. She successfully helped us navigate not one, but THREE offers on our property, and when the first two fell apart (due to flaky buyers), she locked us in on the third offer, and managed to get us through a 17 day escrow close. We had to do a contingent offer on the property we were trying to purchase, and she navigated that process seamlessly. We were still able to get the home we initially made an offer on, and I have no doubt that it was due solely to Margaret pulling strings and working magic behind the scenes. She communicates clearly, efficiently, and doesn't beat around the bush. I hope I never have to do this again, but if I ever do, I would work with Margaret again in a heartbeat.

As a general rule I do not recommend companies that I hire to do a job as there is an expectation that they will perform to accepted norms established when they are hired. Based on the performance of Faith Parks, a former team member, I brought Margaret Melville and her group on to handle the sale of an estate property. Living in Washington State and selling in California comes with its own set of unique challenges. Margaret, with Stacy Gwiazdon and the rest of her team went over and above my expectations in the preparation of the property, listing and working with potential buyers to achieve a rapid sale and coordinating the documentation signature process to close the sale. Their efforts led to three offers on the property within two weeks. In addition, there were several third party (HOA) issues that they aided me in addressing and closing to the satisfaction of myself and the ultimate buyer. Due to constraints by both the buyer and myself, Margaret was on the phone well past normal working hours to ensure that I understood what was happening. She and her team provided all of the sale documentation, answered all of my questions, and made sure that all was in proper order, such that I could sign off confident that there were no surprises. I would strongly recommend the Melville Group as real estate specialists to handle any property sales/purchases.

Margaret was highly recommended by my brother who had used her expertise to find his house in El Dorado Hills. My wife, Linda, and we very impressed with Margaret's knowledge of the housing market in the area. She spent a lot of time with us narrowing our wants and needs in a home. She frequently updated us on potential listings and proactively researched each property's pros and cons. When we finally decided on our ideal house, Margaret was available at all hours to help us through the process and negotiated with the seller terms that we could all agree on. We would use Margaret for any future real estate needs and would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling property.

Margaret genuinely cares about you as a person and what you are looking for in a home or property. She was quick to point out aspects like nearby fire hydrants and other factors that would lower insurance rates. Finding the property was the easy part for my me and my husband. The difficult part was related to a complicated financing deal. Margaret has an excellent business background which allowed her to take the steering wheel and drive the transaction to closure.

Margaret helped my husband and I buy our dream first home in our ideal location and we couldn’t be more grateful. She was so patient in the whole process as we are first time homebuyers and had lots of questions along the way. We are also newlyweds having begun our search prior to our wedding but finally finding “the one” 6 months after. Margaret allowed us to take our time especially around wedding planning and she never made us feel pressured to make decisions. We highly recommend her whether you are buying or selling your home!

Margaret was not focused on making a “sale” she was focused on finding us a home. She paid attention to our needs and we found our forever home. She is patient and very astute. She is such a pleasure to work with and our experience was easy, no stress. That is all due to our agent. We are very grateful to Margaret for handling our transaction.

If you are looking for someone who genuinely cares about your wants and needs in a home and will find your dream home, you have found the right person.

Margaret was extremely helpful throughout the entire home buying process. She was in constant communication about updates and available for any questions I had. She worked quickly to get all neccessary steps completed, without compromising quality or accuracy. Overall, I couldn't imagine doing all of this without her expert assistance, esspecially as a first time home buyer.

We were very lucky to have Margaret Melville take on the sale of our home. We had been having trouble with getting people to make an offer even though they liked the house. Margaret came in with a new idea that other realtors were not applying. Margaret made sure that any questions potential buyers might have she would be prepared with an answer. She did real work to get the sale of a house that had been on the market for over 1 and 1/2 years. Margaret was able to bring 3 offers within a month! We are grateful to Margaret Melville, for all her hard work and for always being there for our professional questions and personal concerns.
