What My Clients Say

Sam C.

‟Melani was a joy to work with. I talked to Melani, listed the property, and had a full price offer within a few weeks. She understood nuances of the local market better than any realtor I spoke with, and recommended a higher listing price (which I got) than others based on her comparisons. She was responsive and respectful throughout, and supported me through my anxiety about the sale. I'd definitely recommend Melani to others looking to sell their homes” Read More ▾

Karen M.

‟Jeff Block and his colleague, Melani Lamond worked together to sell my sister's home in University Mews. They were so helpful and knowledgeable about the neighborhood. They both worked together as a team to help me navigate the clean-out and selling of my late sister's home. Since I'm not from Philadelphia, they provided a wealth of advice and info rmation to help me identify contractors for minor repairs and also recommended nonprofits that could help take donations and furniture removal. Their expertise is not only limited to selling a house -- but it also encompasses the whole process from start to finish. One of them always responded to an email or phone call immediately. I always had complete trust in them. I would highly recommend Jeff and Melani! You will not be disappointed! They truly have your best interests in mind” Read More ▾

Warren Cederholm

‟I too want to thank you for all you did to make this sale go through. I've never experienced an agent that was so focused on things and had alternative plans when things became tenuous. Thanks ever so much.”

Don Caskey

‟Thank you Melani for your hard work on this. You did a great job and we are very grateful. You made this whole sale so much easier.”

Julie Lipson

‟Working with Melani made the daunting process of home buying feel empowering. I have gone through two home purchases with her and both times I was grateful for her unbelievable patience and willingness to leave no leaf unturned. She was able to help with all questions, no question was too tiny or too big picture-- she was always there for me, willi ng to talk through logistics, and I could really feel that she had my best interests in mind the entire time. Also Melani knows everything about the world of real estate! For every question I had, she had an in-depth answer, plus examples from so many years of experience. I appreciated how she really wanted to make sure I had all the information so I could make informed decisions” Read More ▾

‟Melani Lamond recently sold my three-unit Victorian in University City in five days at 6% over asking price. There were fourteen offers. I've known Melani for forty years, so I was aware of her deep market intelligence, and strong work ethic. But her adept and conscientious management of a highly stressful process really sets her apart. I always fe lt that I was in good hands! I would strongly recommend her to anyone who values diligence and integrity” Read More ▾
