“After owning a second home in Carmel for five years, I decided to sell to return to the East full time and take up flying. A Carmel businessman friend recommended Ryan Melcher to handle my listing. I met with Ryan and several other real estate agents but thought Ryan was most personable, easy to work with and knowledgeable. Nine days after listing with Ryan we had a contract. He advertised extensively and held a three day open house on Labor Day Weekend. He made the house so welcoming with a burning fireplace, subdued lighting, and romantic music that a young couple returned for several visits that weekend and made an offer on Tuesday. We closed in a month! Easiest real estate transaction I have experienced!”

“Mr. Melcher has been a delight to work with. Took the time out of his busy schedule to give an opinion on the family residence after my wife’s mother passed on. There wasn’t any commission involved as it was a reverse mortgage situation. We’ve not forgotten that kind gesture and would highly recommend Ryan for your real estate needs. Every once in a while you find a diamond in your own backyard!”

“Ryan was my real estate agent for the property I purchased in Carmel by the Sea. I did not know Ryan prior to this transaction and took a leap of faith to see what he could do for me. I called him for a property in Carmel first but the property was sold. I asked him to send me some information around Carmel properties as they become available. I was very impressed with his responsiveness. He immediately set me up with regular updates related to the properties that become available in the market. I noticed that he was different than any other agent and he always went above and beyond.
Later, I noticed a property that I was interested in due to its location, but I thought they might be asking too much money for it. I talked to Ryan about it. The next day, Ryan sent me some comparable properties around the property and his opinion for the value. He was very thorough and gave me some ideas that I have not thought about it before.
Ryan impressed me with his approach as to how we go after this property. He recommended an approach that would at least put us on the radar as a first offer and negotiate further from there. I was very impressed with his knowledge. He knew everything to know about the market as well as the real estate agents in the market.
Ryan has an incredible ability to see issues before they arise and solve problems before they get escalated. He is smart, capable and resourceful. I do travel a lot and this was a big concern for me during the transaction. However, Ryan represented me like I was always there and did not miss a beat. If it was not for Ryan, I could not own a property in Carmel-by-the-Sea. If you want results and if you want someone who will represent you and your interests, you would want to have Ryan on your side.
The most important reference I can give for Ryan is that if I ever do any real estate transaction, I want Ryan to represent me. I know he will have my best interests in mind and I know he will deliver results. Ryan is the best real estate agent I have ever worked with and I recommend him to anyone who wants to purchase a property in Carmel and Pebble Beach, as well as in Monterey.”
“Ryan Melcher has shown that he is someone who you would want to do business with if you are selling or purchasing a home. He has proven to be well informed with the marketplace and has high standards. He represents the buyer and seller and his integrity makes him someone you can trust. If you want peace of mind, he is your person that will represent you well.”
“Ryan Melcher was wonderful to work with. He sold both our homes in Carmel. We found him to be very energetic and dedicated. He was impeccable with every detail from open houses to paperwork. He kept us informed and was quick to respond or answer any questions we had. Ryan was very professional and very easy to do business with. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a trustworthy, hardworking realtor.”

On top of all that, he has a rich history in the area allowing him to match the customer personality with the appropriate location and perfect house. We are lucky to have Ryan working for us.”

“It was a pleasure working with Ryan, and I would highly recommend his services. He promptly replies to all inquires, explains any uncertainties, and makes resolution of the inevitable conflicts and misunderstandings look easy.”
Dana Winterrowd, J.D.
“Ryan represented us as as we began to look for a vacation home in Carmel Valley in 2014. From the beginning of our search, he was a passionate and knowledgeable agent who took us around the area, explaining details of homes as well as the history, culture and everyday life of Carmel Valley. When we found our perfect home, Ryan reliably stayed on top of all details through what ended up being a fairly complex transaction. We trusted Ryan’s judgement throughout the process and never once found reason to question his integrity and work-ethic. After closing, Ryan has put us in touch with trusted contractors in the area and stops by to see if there is anything he can help with. Today, we are happy to invite Ryan into our new home as a friend.”

“Ryan helped me with a market analysis and valuation on my home without the promise of a listing or sale- I was only looking to get an idea of value for my estate. Ryan is a conscientious, hard worker with high integrity, and very helpful in all aspects of his profession. I have known Ryan personally for 20 years and would highly recommend him to anyone wanting an agent with the expertise and technical savvy to do a wonderful job for them. Ryan is a delight!”
“Among the many things that strike me very positively about Ryan Melcher are his straightforward honesty, his clear, intelligent grasp of reality and his altruistic nature of care and concern for people. These qualities are what makes Ryan someone with whom anyone would want to do business in any domain whatsoever.”
