Cristobal & Mariana
“It was not like a business relationship with them, it was more like a friend relationship where they remember that it was our daughter’s birthday and we just went to the mail and it was a surprise for everyone, like ‘Oh, wow! That’s a gift for her!’ So when she woke up and asked, ‘Who gave me this?’ Then she remembered who John and Melissa were.” “Now she calls them Uncle and Auntie.”
Vince & Helen Dreshner
“Melissa and John were amazing to deal with in all aspects of our home purchase from search to close! Positive attitudes, great work ethic & excellent follow through, they get our strongest recommendations!”
“Melissa and John were great! Not only did they calm my nerves about being a first time home buyer, but they far exceeded my expectations in the entire home buying process. They were attentive to responding promptly to my numerous questions and they project experience and a passion for real estate. I would definitely recommend them!”
Phillip & Azalee Britanabe
“John & Melissa recently helped us sell our condo and buy a house. Though it was tricky with all the simultaneous moving parts, they did everything they could to make it go smoothly. They know the industry well and love what they do, and it shows with all the hard work they put into helping you buy and/or sell your home(s).”
Tina and Gary Allford
“As a result of attending several open houses, my husband and I met a lot of realtors who were willing to help us find a home to purchase. We agreed that we would never want to be represented by any of them and wondered if we would ever find a realtor that we could work with.
That all changed when we went to one of John and Melissa’s open houses. We developed an instant rapport with them and knew that we wanted them to help us with our search for a new home.”
Paulo and Charlotte
“I really felt that they were on our side from the beginning especially on that hands-on part, you know people say hands on but you know THIS is hands on. Breaking out tools: that’s hands on.”
Bruce and Cindy Osmun
“We just completed a very smooth 1031 exchange thanks to John and Melissa Steele. We will certainly be recommending them to friends and family and hope to work with them again ourselves soon.”
“I have worked with a half dozen other realtors, but none exceed their unique combination of talents, honesty, integrity, kindness, persistence and generosity. [John & Melissa] worked long hours, diligently attending to every detail to keep us informed of all the options at each step of the way.”
Archie and Cherry Picar
“I met a lot of realtors here in San Diego but nothing like the couple, John and Melissa Steele. We were able to close the escrow sooner than expected and we were really taken care of every single step of the way until we had the keys to our new house!”
Michelle and Kevin Lundeen
“There was not any pressure at all. Every time we talked to John & Melissa I felt like they were taking notes and making sure that they understood what we wanted. We even changed our minds along the way, but they were able to help us find the home of our dreams.”
Eric and Paula
“They were very helpful. For everything, the whole step, the whole process and like I said they are nothing like any other realtors we’ve ever encountered.”
Eric and Metztli Zentmyer
“[John & Melissa] were always there for us when we needed them and ultimately found the perfect investment project for us. They are genuinely passionate about their work, attentive, diligent and a lot of fun to work with!”
Paula and Eric Johnson
“It was a wonderful experience working with John & Melissa. All of our needs and questions were answered promptly. We never felt any pressure, and the advice and guidance given were always in our best interests. What more could you ask for, they are awesome!”
Charlotte and Paulo Esquivel
“Once you interview a few agents, you will find that there is really no need to look any further than John and Melissa Steele. I wasn’t even planning on selling or buying a house when I met them, and a few months later, we are living in our dream home!”
Andrew Cole and Lana Powers
“One of the things that set Melissa and John apart is that they’re really genuine people. They really come across as if they have an emotional attachment to what they are doing, as if they care about the people who work with. There’s a lot of great realtors out there — we work with a dozen on a regular basis, but one of the things that sets John and Melissa apart is that they really care about the end result, not just selling a house. They are willing to step out and do things that will help out their clients.”
“I highly recommend these two. Buying or selling can be really stressful. They were there for me every step of the way.”
Cristobal and Mariana Jimenez
“We moved from NorCal to San Diego without knowing any communities. John & Melissa setup a search for us and when we found places that we liked they kindly went out and walked the house for us. When our offer was accepted, that was when I first walked the place!”
“They were extremely organized, professional and had great communication throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend John and Melissa to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling and I plan on working with them again in the future!”
"Once in escrow, Melissa and John negotiated well on my behalf and brought the transaction to a close. I recommend them to anyone looking for a home or property investment."
by D. Wright

by J. Darcy
