Recently, my family had to move our 88 year old mother to a mental care facility. It became imperative that we sell her house to finance her future care. From beginning to end, Ron was completely professional, supportive and always available. Within 2 days after I emptied the 4 bedroom home of alifetime of contents, he was showing the home to brokers, having open houses for the neighbors, and then, for the public. Within 2 weeks, he met with me to present me 4 offers. I went into contract that day, with an offer over asking price and closed within 4 weeks. The few hick-ups that arose, were negotiated instantly and efficiently. His overall management of the process was done so with compassion and consideration to our situation. Our family extends a sincere 'thank you' for his expertise and hard work. He handled everything and made an extremely scary and difficult situation appear seamless to us. Should you be in need of real estate related services, Ron Melvin is your guy. Excellent!

This is the 3rd home that my wife and I purchased a home, but the first in CA. We met Ron at an open house. He was very personable and professional. Since we did not already have an agent in the East Bay, I contacted Ron and asked him to serve as our agent. Ron spent a lot of time with us, first helping us with our home search, taking us on property visits from Castro Valley to El Cerrito, from Oakland to Concord. We visited so many prospective properties. When prospective properties were found, he did a great job checking home values to ensure that we knew what was a good price. Once we found the right place, Ron guided us through making a smart offer, which the seller accepted. He continued to work with us all the way through until the deal was closed. He recommended hiring a thorough home inspection, separate from the one the seller already had done. Good thing. Several electrical issues were found, that the seller fixed as part of the sale. Knowing that we wanted to personalize the home before we moved in, he helped us find an outstanding house painter and a plumber to make a few aesthetic updates before we moved in. That is truly complete service. He lives close by and is now considered part of our extended family here in the SF Bay area. We highly recommend Ron for your house hunting needs. Should we ever sell, Ron is our guy.

Ron Melvin is an awesome real estate agent. We can’t say enough about him. We live in San Francisco, and were selling my mom’s house in the East Bay. He was very familiar with homes in the area, and helped us price ours correctly. He advised us how to get the house ship-shape and showing well. He recommended workers to help us resolve issues that came up on the inspections. These workers did excellent work, were reasonably priced, and able to show up on short notice. Through it all, Ron managed schedules and property access, ensuring work was completed without delay. He kept everyone informed of progress along the way. By using electronic signatures on all documents, he minimized our need to drive across the bay – a huge convenience and time saver. We are very glad we chose Ron to sell our house, and we recommend him highly.

Ron did a great job of helping me find a home. His calm demeanor, expert knowledge of the industry and pleasant approach was more than helpful; it was reassuring that I knew he would find the right house for me. Even when I thought I couldn't find the right house at the right price, Ron reassured me that everything would turn out well. His patience and excellent perceptiveness of the industry and the area made me realize that in time, Ron would find the right house. I realized in the process that his knowledge of the market, and the adjoining industries that affect real estate put me at ease. He knows his business, and well. He was the right choice for me, and he will be the right choice for anyone house shopping. Trust in Ron Melvin- he won't let you down.

Ron is the second realtor I have worked with over the past few years, and by far the most diligent, hard-working, and thorough. He learned everything about the neighborhood and comps and worked tirelessly to get us the best price for our house. He completely exceeded my expectations in terms of pricing, negotiation, market knowledge, and ability to analyze housing stats. He is also just a standup guy and a fun person to be around during what can sometimes be a highly stressful process. My family and I couldn't be happier with the services he provided. A+

I am so grateful to the person whom recommended us to Ron Melvin, he really was the right agent for us. He took his time and thoroughly explained the process and steps it takes to buy a home and he made it a dream come true for us. We made him aware of our wants and needs and we are so happy with our new home and can't believe he was able to find us a home that truly is above and beyond our expectations. He was available when we needed him even if it was outside the usual business hours and I'm so thankful for his diligence and attentiveness because it made the process of buying our home such a pleasant one and I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home.
