If you wish to work with a realtor who loves Ventura and knows it well, we highly recommend Melody O’Leary Namikas and Kaitlin Miller. This professional mother/daughter real estate team employed their knowledge, skills, and years of experience in real estate sales and marketing to ensure that they found the best buyer for our property.
Selling a home where one’s lived for more than twenty-two years brings mixed feelings, and Melody has worked with enough buyers and sellers to understand that they respond rationally, but also emotionally, to the process. As our neighbor and friend for many years, she listened to our concerns and suggested solid reasons for taking certain actions to boost our home’s sale. These included the state of the current market for hillside homes, the small buyer pool in our market segment, and the effect of recent disasters, such as the Thomas fire. She also communicated with us often, especially after meeting potential buyers, receiving feedback, and during periods when no showings occurred.
Melody knew when she found the right buyer for our home. After using her negotiation skills, she walked us through the process, keeping us informed along the way. We found it comforting to have her on our team, especially because she approached the entire process with a positive attitude that is infectious.
We decided to rent for a while after selling our property, and Melody went beyond her role as our sales agent to help us find rentals in areas we’d like to live. She scouted many appropriate properties and visited several with us during her free time, offering support and feedback. She was generous with her time and advice, always offering a solid perspective.
Overall, we had a positive experience working with Melody and Kaitlin. Their can-do attitudes make them easy and enjoyable to work with. Buyers and sellers alike can count on them to do the best job.
