Mel’s understanding of the local market on the North Shore is nothing less than phenomenal. Her attention to detail in every aspect is amazing. Buying and selling a home can be so stressful at times, yet from start to finish I felt “She has this”. What a treat to have had a coach and guide like Mel in my corner through every step.

Our dear real estate agent Mel is the best overall agent We've had pleasure to work with. She is hard working, pleasant to deal with, incredibly professional and very knowledgeable. Always put her clients needs above her own, always willing to offer her assistance and support.
She assisted us patiently for over the year while we waited for a right home to come on the market.
We are greatful for finding us the home that we love so much.
Anyone looking into real estate would be wise to have Mel on board, as sometimes the difference between a dream home and just the house is in the knowledge, experience and dedication agents like Mel can provide.
Thank you Mel.

I used Mel Montgomery to list my house and to find me the next, perfect house. I relied heavily on Mel to guide me on the appropriate price given my fairly unique property and was thrilled with the outcome. Mel was the most responsive, attentive realtor I have used. She made herself available to me to help ensure a smooth sale and transition to my new home. What made Mel stand out from other realtors with whom I have worked was her willingness to reach out to others including contractors and builders to make sure I had access to every service and all relevant information in the sale of my old home and purchase of my new home. Mel’s knowledge of the North Shore makes her perfectly suited to this work, particularly for anyone with school aged children. She brought a wealth of knowledge about the neighbourhood, zoning proposals and plans for local schools that was so helpful to me as I debated whether to sell and where to buy next. Finally, Mel always made me and my kids feel like we were her most important client. She understood how stressful a move can be particularly for children and she consistently made efforts to limit the impact on my children even when that meant an inconvenience for her.
If you want the people who see your home to feel welcome and positive about it then Mel is your realtor. She has a magnetic and energetic personality that helped to create and sustain interest in my home. That same charm and energy helped ensure that I was successful buying the home in which I now live. I would not hesitate to use Mel again.

"When we decided to settle in North Vancouver to raise our family we couldn’t have been more fortunate to have had Mel as our realtor throughout the whole process. We’d been represented by several realtors before—both in Canada and overseas—and Mel was by far the best agent we’ve had the pleasure to work with.
Her professionalism is apparent in every aspect; she thoroughly researched our needs, ensured we stayed within our price range, was always patient and respectful of our opinions, and knew the pros and cons of every property we looked at. Mel’s remarkable knowledge of the area was vital to the decision-making process—from choosing school zones and determining resale value, to finding community-oriented neighbourhoods and access to recreation centres, trails, and services. When we found the right house we had no doubt she managed to secure the best possible price for us and during the entire transaction process felt confident with her guiding us through it. If you are looking for a home on the North Shore, Mel is one of the best and simply a pleasure to work with. Thank you!"

"Mel recently helped us sell our townhouse and upgrade to a larger home for our growing family. She was highly recommended to us by a friend. We were immediately impressed with Mel’s positive and polished approach, her honesty, and her commitment to both the sale AND the search for our new home.
Working with Mel didn’t feel like work at all! Yet she was tenacious in representing the needs of our family, very cool under pressure and generally a great person to have on our side. We will happily recommend Mel to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. "

"Working with Mel to buy our home was a pleasure from start to finish. Her attention to detail was apparent immediately as she came to our first meeting armed with data and a well informed opinion on the type of home we had described. Her communication style is quick and direct ... it felt like we were never waiting for a response to a question we had asked.
I was particularly impressed with the importance she places on honesty and integrity in her business ... crucial traits in such an important investment decision. Thank you Mel for making the process of buying our home such a comfortable and enjoyable one."
"We feel very fortunate that we chose Mel Montgomery to be our realtor. Mel went above and beyond to guide us through the process. We knew we were in good hands with her knowledge and personal attention.
Our house sold within a week well above asking price. Thank you Mel and we would highly recommend you to anyone."

"Mel Montgomery is the quintessential professional. I have had her represent me in four transactions, two sales and two purchases. Her attention to detail and organization made what could have been a stressful time go so smoothly. I felt as if she was selling/buying her own home. Never did I feel like "just a client".
"Working with Mel is a true privilege. Her integrity, professionalism and work ethic is rare to see today. She has an exceptional understanding of the market and her industry. She has a unique ability to bring ease and assurance to what can be a stressful time. She is agile in adapting to changing circumstances and markets.
Easily accessible, returning all correspondence promptly with an exceptional attention to detail. Having dealt with numerous Real Estate Agents over the years I only wish I had met Mel a decade ago."

"Mel Montgomery is an amazing realtor. With extensive local knowledge, patience, and determination, she guided us through the idiosyncrasies of the Vancouver housing market. She listened to our needs and wants, then applied her optimistic attitude, and tenacious spirit, until we found our perfect home in this little bit of paradise."

"I wanted to take this opportunity to recognize and thank Mel for the outstanding work she has done with us in completing this sale. As you recall, when we were going through the necessary steps to purchase the property, there were many very emotional times during this process for my wife and I. And, all the way through this roller coaster of a ride, was Mel with her support, professional guidance and empathy. She truly cared... which meant so much to Gabi and I, as this was our first home.
- John and Gabi
I would highly recommend Mel - she was instrumental in the sale of our home. Her professionalism and dedication was second to none. Mel and her team worked very efficiently and sold our townhouse very quickly and at a great price. In addition, Mel's ethical negotiation skills really impressed us. We couldn't be happier with the services she provided, on top of her lovely personality and direct, no nonsense attitude. We would definitely use her services again in the future. Thank you Mel!
