You have a lot of choices when it comes to choosing a real estate agent. In addition to my knowledge and passion for the region, I bring a solid background in construction and real estate investment which informs and enhances every one of my client interactions. Whether you’re a buyer or seller, a first-time homeowner or seasoned pro, I welcome the opportunity to meet you, explain my services, and strategize your sale or purchase.
When buying a home...
I see every client as a person who is making one of the biggest decisions they will make in this lifetime, and it’s my job to educate, relieve stress, and help them navigate the process. After you visit my website and check out my 5-Star Yelp and Zillow reviews, I hope you like what you see. The next step is for us to connect via phone or email and meet at a time that works for you.
When selling your home...
Pre-listing prep work and home assessment are a large portion of my business. I enjoy the creativity and strategy that goes into preparing a home for market, and my can-do attitude, contractor connections, and ability to get things done are what set me apart from other agents. When it’s time to sell your home, I’m happy to meet to discuss current market conditions, see your home’s unique features, and recommend cost-effective updates that will increase the value of your home. From our first contact to our initial meeting, I want to assure you I am a low-pressure, highly knowledgeable agent who is respected by clients and colleagues alike.
We loved working with Justin and would highly recommend him as an agent. He was reliable, always quick to answer email and phone calls, and provided a level of in-depth knowledge of properties in the Phinney Ridge and surrounding area that far exceeded our expectations.
We worked with him over several months and he proved himself particularly useful in helping us to define the kind of house we wanted. We were immediately impressed by his fund of knowledge--- we had contemplated buying a ‘f...see more
Justin and Andrew are a dream to work with, and we recommend them wholeheartedly. My wife and I have sold 4 houses, and we can attest that the process has never been so easy, nor so thoughtfully cared after. They felt like partners, and helped us find the right amount of spending to really show off our property in its best light. They put their own time and money into the staging, and used their own contacts to help us with last-minute paint, drywall, landscaping and more. We had an aggressive t...see more
I rarely give 5 star ratings because can anyone really be that good? Justin is.
Buying/selling a home can be stressful and emotional so I was so grateful to find him when we bought our home in Seattle. He was patient, listened, payed attention to details and helped us land our dream home under challenging circumstances. He continues to be a trusted advisor for all things real estate.
We own a vacation rental business and have some investment properties in Seattle. He's the first person w...see more
Justin Mellon was wonderful to work with. He helped us evaluate the condo we owned, suggested some upgrades to get the best value for our money and put us in touch with professionals to help us complete the projects. He listed our condo and it we accepted an offer the Monday after the showing. He also guided us through the buying side when we purchased a home. He explained in great detail the process, which was new to us. He skillfully managed the line between negotiation and not losing the hous...see more
I had a fantastic experience working with Justin. I was a first-time home buyer and I needed a lot of guidance.
Here is the best part about Justin. He discouraged me from buying the first place I considered buying. It wasn't right for me, and though I was excited about it, he knew I would not have been happy there long term. He was honestly concerned about helping me find the best house for me, and he was confident that with his help, I would be able to find better places. I took his advice,...see more
My wife and I recently sold a house with the assistance of Justin Mellon after learning I would move for medical residency. He started by talking through the trade offs between renting vs selling considering the current market but was very forthright that either would be a good option financially, so it depended on our outlook and personalities. When we decided to sell he helped orient us to the big picture thinking, including the ideal timeline to get the house on the market and the big steps o...see more
I wanted to take a few minutes to let you know what a great agent you have in Justin Mellon. Recently I had a listing in Maple Leaf that belonged to my brother-in-law and his wife. After he tragically passed away in February, I had the daunting job of putting it on the market. I say this because our family was already stricken with the loss of our mother and sister within the past year and emotionally, I was somewhat spent. Had funds been available, I would have referred it to a Seattle agent. U...see more
I decided to buy my first house so I met Justin Mellon. He not only helped me to find a new townhouse at a good price, but also taught me how to look for the right home. Being Chinese, my parents have many concerns about ‘feng-shui’ of the building. At that time, Justin would sit down with me and listen to my needs carefully so he always knows what I like the most! He was also very honest with the housing price. He wouldn’t let the sellers take advantage of me in any way. Because of Justin...see more
Everyone I spoke with about house hunting said the key was finding an agent that you click with. Someone who can decipher all your wants, needs, and dreams and somehow blend it all into your ideal situation. Justin, Justyna, and Andrew were all simply awesome. I can't thank them enough for putting up with my wife and I's differing opinions and for the long search in this tough housing market. Justin and the team helped us lock in a great house in our most desired location. Thank you all. We have...see more
THANK YOU soo very much for ALL of your hard work, guidance and endless help with the sale of my condo!! It couldn't have gone smoother, thanks to you.
I will definitely use Justin again when I buy my next house. He is honest and will not push you into a home to make a sale. He honestly wants what is best for you and your family. If the house is not right he will flat out tell you.
As first time homebuyers we were anxious and almost didn't buy a house. Justin was unlike a previous agent who didn't listen to our needs and kept pushing her own agenda trying to sell homes that were not for us. A family friend recommended Justin so we decided to give him a call and are very happy we did. The tax credit incentive was there and the rates had dropped super low, top that off with a fantastic agent who helped us find our perfect home. You end up with a great experience. We truly be...see more
The home buying process can be extremely scary and sketchy to say the least. While you're juggling price versus size versus yard space versus versus the neighborhood, there are a lot of people out there with their own agendas trying to make a quick buck off you. Unfortunately, the process of buying our home did not go as smoothly as we had hoped. The actual paperwork and negotiations went really well, but after we got the keys and showed up at the house for the first time there were a lot of thi...see more
This guy is very good at what he does. He is helpful, down to earth, hardworking and honest.
For those of you in the Puget Sound area, take note: I can't say enough about my fantastic real estate agent. Justin Mellon (206-919-7648; Lake & Company Real Estate), who handled the sale of my home and purchase of my new home. He goes above and beyond, and then some more for his clients. He listens. That might sound like an odd comment, but we had an agent before that continued to show us houses that were exactly what we'd said we did not want. After showing me a couple of houses, Justin check...see more
I met Justin over 10 years ago. My wife had used him to sell our condo in Tangletown. In that transaction he personally pressured washed the deck and staged the condo for resale in an extreme buyers’ market. He sold our condo for a good price in short order.
So when it came time to sell our house in Green Lake it made sense for us to see if Justin would help us sell our house. At this time Justin introduced me to his brother Andrew as well.
They took my home from renter occupied to mar...see more
Justin Mellon has found his calling. He is a stand-out real estate agent who I would highly recommend, without hesitation. His level of professionalism, compassion, and sincerity sets him apart. Justin has a strong work ethic and worked tirelessly to meet our needs. He communicates clearly, respectfully and honestly. He was always available for us—so much so that I felt as if we were his only clients. Justin puts his heart into his work and works with the highest level of integrity. After the ...see more
I met Justin after he was recommended to me by a close friend. Even though at the time, I had a real estate agent I was considering working with, I decided to work with Justin instead. It turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. Justin helped me sell my house and buy a new one. He was extremely knowledgeable and willing to research issues he was not certain of. He was supportive of me throughout each step of the process from financing to the actual move. I was encouraged to c...see more
