“We would like to sincerely thank Jennifer for all her efforts in successfully concluding the sale of our home at 139 Laurel Way, Mountain View. From start to finish, it was evident her experience in cleverly executing all aspects of the sale.

In particular, we were impressed with the help she provided (with a very short lead time provided by us), in the home repairs and upgrades of the property to maximize the marketing and sales price, as well as the multitude of interactions with the contractors. Despite our busy schedule, that often requires frequent travel outside of the country, Jennifer took over the project management for us for the repairs and upgrades. It should be noted, our previous contractor whom installed the hardwood floors on our second story level had completed a poor job with the installation. The floors on may surface locations would squeak when weight was applied to them. This was a disappointment as the floors were less than 1.5 years old. Jennifer had her contractor replace the floors, which turned out beautiful and rectified the squeaking issue. She also had the contractor install new quartz countertops, a tile backsplash, and recessed lighting in the kitchen. This service was above and beyond what other Realtors’ offer with their listing packages.

In addition, it was impressive the marketing campaign she implemented when the house hit the market. We saw our home advertised on all the online avenues we researched, and this exposure was evident when our home sold in one week for the highest price EVER in The Crossings and San Antonio Station, Mountain View. The virtual tour, professional pictures and the flyer were extremely impressive. We commend her efforts, and couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome.

After interviewing a handful of agents before selecting the Realtor(s) to sell our home, we decided on Jennifer and her team due to their utmost professionalism and well documented experience. She delivered a polished presentation, and demonstrated how she would get us top dollar for our home. Jennifer is an extremely talented Realtor, and we highly endorse her efforts as a real estate professional to any whom are considering enlisting in her services.”

“Jennifer helped us to buy our first home. This was the first bid we put in. She played it out very well with in person presentation of the bid. She is very knowledgeable of the market and knows the price and trend very well. If you see a house that you know you want, send her an email or call her, she will respond within hour, week day or weekend, day or evening.

Another thing with Jennifer is that you can ask her anything and she is always helpful. Both of us moved here not long ago and housing market here is nothing close to any of our previous experience. It is not surprising how many dumb questions we have asked, but she is always responsive. While writing the offer, she is very patient in explaining and laying out all the possible expenses, process, etc to make sure we are better prepared and minimize the hiccup throughout the process. In addition, she knows what perks to negotiate for her clients, she got us insurance for all appliances at the new house for 1 year coverage at seller’s expense.

Probably one other note, we were upfront about our estimated budget. She is very willing to show us any house we were interested and missed the open house, regardless whether or not the comp shows that the bidding price is within our budget. She would spend time throughout the process to help us understand what would change the price, how we would slowly narrow our search to match what we wished to get, etc. Very good education!”

To prospective clients of Jennifer Melenudo:

It has been a pleasure to work with Jennifer Melenudo through the sale of my parents’ home in Saratoga. Time and again Jennifer’s market insights and home sale background proved extremely valuable both in obtaining the best value for the home and in coping with the accompanying transition in my parents’ life. Permit me to list a few examples that illustrate her many contributions to the process.

• My parents both are in their mid to later 80’s and selling their house of 55 years was a big transition. Jennifer understood the difficulties of this transition and exercised patience when the home listing date was delayed to accommodate hitches in this transition.

• Jennifer has unique insights into some of the challenges of selling the home of elderly parents. She recommended an excellent team to manage and execute an estate sale and subsequent disposition of remaining household furniture and other items. Without this excellent team, I’m afraid my siblings and I would have been overwhelmed managing this process while juggling the other commitments in our lives.

• Jennifer recommended and executed a cost effective strategy of modest home upgrades that clearly enhanced the home resale value well in excess of the upgrade costs. She complemented these upgrades with excellent staging that provided a fresh look for this 58 year old home.

• Jennifer listed the home with an asking price that reflected a clear sense of the market. Specifically the asking price positioned the home to attract substantial prospective buyer traffic yet deliver an excellent selling price.

• Through the listing period and the subsequent showing Jennifer cleverly worked prospective buyer agents to deliver an outstanding successful bid with absolutely no contingencies. In the end the house closed extremely quickly and delivered a per square foot sale price substantially higher than comparable houses on the market. This feat is particularly notable since the house was listed after the school year had commenced and despite concurrent equity market turbulence.

The bottom line is that I was extremely pleased with Jennifer’s representation of our parents’ home and I would not hesitate to enlist Jennifer’s services in the sale of our own home.

Jennifer Melenudo went above and beyond every step of the way with selling my parents’ house!! There were many challenges on OUR end due to Mom’s Alzheimer’s and Dad’s bladder cancer and yet Jennifer was incredibly patient, respectful and loving to my elderly, and at times, difficult parents. She would always offer her professional advice, backing it up with explanations of why it was important, but she was never pushy and would leave it in our court to make the final decisions. She knows the market incredibly well which was evident with my parents’ house selling in 8 days, with the highest per square foot price of all the comps, when many houses in the area had not sold after a few months. She has a wonderful team of professionals (gardener, painter, carpet/floor installer, cleaning service, staging company, photographer) which made the house look fabulous!! She personally met with the contractors allowing me to keep my focus on work which I greatly appreciated! One quality which really stood out was Jennifer’s willingness to help in any way she could! She even helped at the estate sale and helped box things afterwards, watered the garden a number of days, swept the deck and so much more!! I never thought selling a house would be so easy but with Jennifer’s knowledge, integrity, organizational skills and follow through she was a godsend for our family and I am forever grateful to her!!

I so appreciate Jennifer Melenudo’s wonderful work as realtor for the sale of my parents’ home. Although I live out of state, I had the pleasure of meeting Jennifer during a family visit, and I found her very knowledgeable about every aspect of her work, as well as warm and personable in a way that assured me she would give my parents peace and confidence in selling their home of 60 years. When the house went on the market, it looked so beautiful and inviting! This was immediately borne out by a 5% above asking price offer the first weekend. All went so smoothly, and we just received the wonderful news that the sale is complete.

Jennifer, you are a gem. Thank you for your gracious and efficient work from start to finish!

I feel all this from my heart, Jennifer. Your sparkling warmth and can-do approach leave me smiling every time I think of you and the sale of Mom and Dad’s home. You truly gave my whole family such a gift in not only what you accomplished but also in how you went about it.

If you lived in my area and I was in need of a realtor, I would definitely seek you out first!

Jennifer was friendly and very approachable when dealing with the sale. She very professionally handled all aspects of the sale. She was patient in explaining all details concerning the sale. Jennifer was also helpful in every way she could when we worked to empty the residence. In addition she kept us informed about the sale process throughout the entire time the house was on the market and in escrow. It was a delight to work with her.

Jennifer was instrumental in helping us through two almost simultaneous transactions – selling our home in Mountain View and at the same time purchasing a home in Santa Cruz with the contingency that we sell the home in MV first. She expertly negotiated both transactions to maximize the sale price of the one home while reducing the price on our target home. Everything was timed perfectly and we were able to complete both transactions within 6 weeks.

I first met Jennifer at an open house about 3 years ago. At the time I was looking for a house with a certain floor plan in a community but none was available, so Jennifer asked that I leave my contact, promising to contact me if one should become available. After 2 years have gone by without any inventory, I had totally forgotten about the floor plan, but Jennifer didn’t. About 6 months ago, a listing fitting my requirement came up and Jennifer immediately contacted me. Talk about following through. Even though we didn’t get the house (to which it was not Jennifer’s fault), my wife and I were impressed by her professionalism and decided to ask her to help us look for another house. Throughout our house search Jennifer was very patient in explaining the pluses and minuses of each properly. She was very detail oriented and always on top of everything. This can be seen from her giving us all the necessary information and recommendations to help us make an informed decision, to strategizing how to win our house (which had 14 offers), to sending us a detailed email after closing that was filled with all the information we need to make our move a smooth one. Jennifer has gone above and beyond. I will not hesitate to hire her again in the future or recommend her to my friends and family.

“My wife and I had no idea how we were going to accomplish our transition from our home of 30 years into an assisted living for seniors. We were recommended to speak with Jennifer Melenudo, an exceptional Real Estate Agent by a friend of ours. She made the entire process the most seamless transition of our lives. Jennifer had a team of professionals who helped us downsize, measure the dimensions of the new place we were moving into in effort to figure out what we could bring with us, packing and transporting all of our belongings into the new place and setting up our apartment at the assisted living. I truly don’t know what we would have done without this tremendous help. Jennifer then had her team of Contractors, stagers and photographers get our home ready for the real estate market. We ended up selling our home with 9 offers well over the asking price. We couldn’t be more appreciative and happy with what Jennifer did for my wife and I. I would highly recommend Jennifer for anyone who is looking to sell a home. She was professional, openly communicative, an expert in her field and is a genuine person whom cares about people.” George & Masako Fukuhara

“We are pleased to write this recommendation for Jennifer Melenudo – a true top-notch real estate agent in the San Francisco Bay Area! Upon deciding to sell our townhouse in Sunnyvale, CA, we interviewed a handful of real estate agents with notable experience in our area. It was clear after completing our interviews that Jennifer was by far the leading candidate. She was extremely professional, personable, and delivered an incredibly polished presentation. She had thorough insight and knowledge of the various intricacies of our home and neighborhood, as well as what we could expect with regards to buyers. We sincerely appreciated her desire to understand our wants/needs and ensure we were comfortable with the process. During the listing process, Jennifer did an excellent job of guiding us every step of the way and keeping us informed of progress and next steps. We received regular communication from her, and she was quick to respond to any of our inquiries, day or night. Knowing we were working with a short timeframe to sell our home, she did everything in her power to expedite where needed. Jennifer’s combined modern and traditional marketing efforts attracted a great deal of traffic during open houses. We feel that this heavily contributed to the number of offers we received and are what allowed us to start the closing process after only one open house weekend! From end-to-end, Jennifer provided a comprehensive, worry-free package that allowed us to sell our home with ease and delight. We were exceptionally satisfied with the outcome of our sale and would gladly recommend her to any of our friends or family in the future. Cheers, Quinn and Ali Kennett”
