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.
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
This guy is very good at what he does. He is helpful, down to earth, hardworking and honest.
Selling a home is a very stressful event, especially when you live in a different state and are about to move to a third state, but we had a great experience with Justin selling our home! We shared a vision for renovations and updates that needed to be done to the house to get top dollar and they all came off perfectly! Even when problems arose with contractors (and they always do) or meeting deadlines he was there to help and it was always handled quickly and professionally. If you're looking f...see more
There is no way we would have felt as comfortable and confident in our house hunting/home buying process if it weren't for Justin! His patience, knowledge, and professionalism made this experience such an exciting time for me and my husband! We enjoyed the other team members that Justin recommended as well, ie: mortgage broker + escrow company. There was such a great level of respect and professionalism throughout!
I contacted Justin when I was looking to buy a house for the first time. I contacted him, because he was highly regarded on Yelp, and my experience working with him completely justified the strong reviews.
He met with me soon after I contacted him, and he gave me a concise, but detailed overview of the home-buying process and how it relates to the Seattle market. He outlined strategies to improve my chances in a competitive bid and he put me in touch with a contact for financing. This contac...see more
Justin made the process of becoming a first time home buyer infinitely easier and more fun than I ever imagined it can be. We looked at many a condo before I found the one I felt excited and comfortable purchasing. From helping me make the best offer to talking to the other tenants to negotiating a complex loan, he was always available, supportive and most of all patient. He even helped with the move and still to this day willing to lend a hand when asked. He is a great agent, and I strongly rec...see more
I have worked with Justin Mellon as my real estate professional three times now, and would choose him again in a heartbeat. He helped me to buy my first house, sell it when it no longer seemed to fit our needs, and then buy another house when the time came.
Each time he’s been professional, available, honest, friendly, and a joy to work with. I trust his opinion, and I value his willingness to take the time to walk me through opinions and choices.
He has always gone above and beyond th...see more
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
Justin Mellon used his extensive local connections to find a house that fit me perfectly, then negotiated a fantastic deal that helped me to realize my personal dream of being a homeowner in the Ballard neighborhood. I am better off today financially and personally because of his expertise and integrity. I highly recommend this guy.
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
I can not say enough good things!
My husband and I were first time home buyers without a clue in the world as to where to start. Justin held our hand through out the process and got us into a home we love and is just right for us.
He is attentive, thoughtful, and thorough. We always felt like he had our best interest in mind and never felt like we were being pushed into or sold on a house we didn't want.
We met with 3 agents and decided to work with Justin for all of the reasons outl...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 would recommend Justin to anyone because of the effort he puts into the process. Very few realtors will go the extra mile like him. We hired him because a friend described how helpful he was and how quickly he sold their home so we had high expectations. Justin met or exceeded our expectations in every area. His sincerity creates an environment of trust that is rare with transactions involving considerable dollar amounts.
Selling a house in a down market really tests the whole process. Ever...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
I enjoyed working with Justin through the entire process of selling our house. He helped navigate a complex situation and greatly assisted in the process of getting the house ready for market by coordinating with painters, landscapers, and other contractors. Once the house was listed, he worked hard to show the house and we accepted a strong offer shortly afterward. Even in a strong sellers' market having the right marketing strategy is key to getting an optimum outcome and moving towards a fast...see more
Justin was recommended to us by a friend and helped us find our dream house, sell our condo and then sell our house a few years later, when we moved out of town. We couldn't have asked for a better experience! Justin and Andrew expertly navigated the entire process for us. They gave us great advice and took care of all of the details, so we didn't have to worry about a thing. We highly recommend them!
My husband and I just partnered with Justin to both sell our condo and find our dream home.
He was such a wonderful asset and ally on both ends that we feel extremely lucky to have found him.
Initially we would have loved to sell our condo over a year ago and move into a home. Due to another unit in our complex selling for such a low price, Justin helped us weigh the pros and cons of waiting a year before testing the market. In the end we waited a year and did some renovations at his sugge...see more
We chose Justin as our agent after a glowing recommendation from trusted friends, and they were right on the money! We were looking for a rare type of house in a very specific neighborhood during a highly competitive market. Justin stuck with us month after month, walked us through many houses, watched carefully for new homes on the market, and gave us great advice on remodeling options. He was patient when we were picky and continued to bring us good homes to consider. He walked us through a co...see more
