Doug - Buyer
We worked with Melissa Macfayden, a Venice-based California Real Estate Broker-Associate, when purchasing a home near the beach in Venice, CA. We found her listing for a tenant-occupied, single-family residence on the broker’s website. Since we were traveling from Dallas, Texas to see the property, she skillfully coodinated a showing mutually convenient to the occupants and to our travel schedule. After our offer was accepted, Melissa was helpful during a rigorous inspection process, arranging an investigation of the plumbing system and contacting the owner of an adjacent property to discuss an issue raised during inspections. Once our due dilegence was complete, Melissa presented our findings to the Seller for consideration. Most importantly, she helped facilitate a last-minute 1031-exchange for a property we sold in Dallas. After the Closing, Melissa presented us with a wonderful gift set of wine and champagne. She maintains client contact by sending yearly Holiday greetings, after featuring her recent travel adventures to strange and exotic places off the beaten path. Overall, our experience with Melissa Macfayden in the home buying process was excellent. It was a smooth transaction without surprises. We recommend her services, and we would be delighted to work with Melissa again in the future.
