    “Thank you for making the sale and purchase of my old and new home as smooth as possible. Your dedication to your clients is admirable and from someone with high morals and ethics, I could not have been more pleased with every nuance of my experience. As you know, my Mom was a long time Coldwell Banker agent – she would most definitely have approved of my choice of agents. Because my Mom has always been my agent, I had very high expectations with regard to this set of transactions. You and Adam exceeded my expectations with utmost professionalism and business acumen.

  • “I cannot speak highly enough of Melissa Cizauskas. Melissa is not just another agent…having gone through a very difficult time with an investment property and tenant, Melissa stepped up and helped me above and beyond what I ever could have expected. Whatever I needed help with, she was there!Words cannot express what an awesome and honest person she truly is! I see in Melissa, what I see in my practice…She comes into people’s lives with a great purpose, not only as a Real Estate agent, but as an advocate and a friend. I felt better day by day as she kept helping me with my complicated problem regarding my house for sale and its issues. ” Rain or shine” and at “any hour”, she was there and always ready to help. She is a very intelligent woman, she knows real estate, and was to me….a very reliable advisor. Melissa maintains her professionalism at all times. Keller Williams must be very proud to have her working for their fine company! I felt very safe dealing with her because I see how competent she is. In my eyes, she truly is a a super star in my opinion.”

I’ve known Melissa since 2013 when she was the founder of our Women Entrepreneurs Networking Group at the Bay Club in Carmel Valley. I’ve had the opportunity/privilege to observe her in action in so many aspects of her life and have never known someone with as much energy, integrity and tenacity to achieve all that she sets out to do. Melissa is also heart-centered and it translates with every hat she dons…and there are many. She goes out of her way to help everyone she comes in contact with both personally and professionally. I wanted to include this in my review because in addition to savvy and expertise in her field, Melissa creates wonderful relationships with her clients which is a very valuable asset to both buyer and seller. I was able to experience this first hand when I was in need of her realtor services.

I relocated to Westlake Village in L.A. county and was looking for a special kind of mixed use property in Agoura Hills, CA..This is clearly not in her area, but I called Melissa to check on a listing I ran across only to find it was already in escrow. While standing on the property and getting the news from Melissa, I was looking at an adjacent occupied property and wondered to her if they might sell. We loved the location. She asked for the address and by the next day she’d tracked the owner, made a call and connected, found out it was an income property they’d owned and rented out for 14 yrs. and discovered they’d just been talking of finally selling it. It was a difficult property simply because it was 4 parcels, 1 residential and 3 commercial. Over the course of the next several weeks, she was able to sort it out and bring the owners and ourselves into negotiations to buy the property. We all felt very comfortable as a result of her communication and knowledge. As it turned out, we decided not to purchase the property simply because we discovered the challenges we would face getting permitted by the city to do the things we’d like to with the land itself. However, through the process of her helping us, the sellers were so impressed with Melissa that they are seeking her services to purchase a condo in Del Mar. This is what I meant about building relationships and she does it in spades. When it comes to having the best in a realtor, there’s no one better Melissa.

We recently sold our home in Carmel Valley. Melissa Cizauskas was the agent who represented the Buyer in the transaction. Although Melissa was not our agent, Melissa did an amazing job and represented her client extremely well. She made the process fun and was extremely helpful. We recommend Melissa Cizauskas without hesitation!

Melissa knows the market. Because she is so 100% dedicated and active with buyers and sellers in the area, she knew that this property was in high demand and where the market was going. This particular home had multiple offers and was in a bidding war. Melissa had the right strategy and negotiating skills to win this bidding war for her client!

Her timely and open communication was key. In addition to securing this home for her client, Melissa has the local experience and many great contacts in escrow, title and lending. She stayed in contact with all parties (title, lending, escrow, principals, inspectors, etc…) to ensure a smooth escrow and ensuring contractual obligations are met in a timely manner. She was able to close this escrow in 23 days. Amazing!

We spoke to Melissa about our desire to find a home with a first floor master bedroom. She found the house that made us want to move. Then she kept in daily contact with us during the sale of our old home giving us feedback on each and every showing. We could not have asked for a more knowledgeable, attentive and responsive agent.
