Professional, dedicated, energetic, enthusiastic, motivated, diligent, knowledgeable and sophisticated, Melissa Ryan, Realtor, Coldwell Banker Realty. Since Melissa has been with Coldwell Banker for the past several years her decision to focus on residential sales has been confirmed time and time again. Assisting her clients to find their new homes as well as sell their current homes has made going to "work" everyday something that she happily anticipates. During her first full year at Coldwell Banker, she achieved the Previews status, which based on her sales and exceptional performance, certifies her as a Global Luxury Specialist. Additionally, she had the honor of receiving the International President's Premier in 2020. She currently works out of the La Canada as well as the Brentwood office, which allows her to service her clients at an unusually high level by exposing their properties to a larger area as well as networking with a greater pool of agents throughout the Greater Los Angeles area. Melissa's passion for real estate spans more than 30 years and includes every aspect of the business. She has spent many years building her own projects, including housing developments, condo complexes, apartment buildings, shopping centers and hotels. Her experience in finance has also allowed her to navigate her way through the ever changing economy by exploring alternative resources such as EB5 funding. Developing a regional center for such funding and opening offices in China proved to be an exciting and worthwhile challenge. Melissa's commitment and service to her clients is undeniable and she would not have it any other way. Their praise and appreciation is her reward.

As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:


Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.



"We recently bought our first home from a family friend. Melissa acted as a single intermediary both for the seller and for us, which reduced our costs significantly. Throughout the whole process, she was highly communicative and represented everyone's interests fairly. She kept the whole process on track and provided timely and well-informed answers to all our questions. We cannot recommend Melissa highly enough."

"Melissa was our agent for buying a house in Brentwood area. We closed on dec 29th, 2017! She is a great agent and advisor. She knows the area very well. Also, for this property, we had a few back and forth with the seller on price and inspections. She was extremely professional in understanding our concerns and resolving them with the seller. She respected our decision making process while providing very useful input and feedback to us, without pushing us in any particular direction. This was extremely helpful as we had to make a few hard decisions along the way and we could trust and rely on her feedback. Would strongly recommend her."

"Melissa was fantastic! Very knowledgeable, easy to work with, and super fast to get back to you or get you answers/move the process along. It's clear that she really cares about her clients and about helping them out with the home-buying or home-selling process!"

  -commonreader, Client

"Melissa is not only a wonderful person but she is extremely professional, reliable and always 100% 'on it'. Without her I would never have been able to finalize the purchase of my dream home. She's a great negotiator and available 24/7 for her clients. I could ask her anything at anytime and she would get back to me immediately and helped me through a process that was not the easiest. It is very rare to come across a person like Melissa in the real estate world and I can highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home."
