Testimonials for Melecia Johnson, REALTOR®
Mrs. Johnson is the most professional, competent, thorough and qualified real estate professional that I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Her prompt action and innovative and wise ideas resulted not only in securing the property of my dreams, but also in virtually simultaneously selling my prior home - an ideal situation for all. I recommend her without qualification. She is dynamite!!
I am a Canadian Professor and investor. A little more than 6 months ago, my wife and I decided to explore the idea of purchasing a retirement home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Our dollar was strong, and home prices in Florida were attractive. So I decided to look south – to the future of becoming a Canadian snowbird. We needed a real estate agent who knew the area, and one whom we could trust. Not knowing anyone in Florida I searched the Internet. I can truly say that God was watching over us. I found Melecia Johnson’s real estate page. Her face looked trusting, confident and warm so I contacted her. Well, did I ever make the right choice? We bought an investment property in Atlanta, Georgia last June (2012) and thought we had met the best real estate agent ever, until we met Melecia. We currently own properties in Canada and the US, and of all the agents that we have had to work with in the past 15 years (and we have had all great experiences), without a doubt, Melecia is by far the very best of them all.
If you ask me what attributes I would use to describe Melecia, I would say:
1. Extremely knowledgeable of the market area (she knows the trends, demographics, the potential of the area)
2. Extremely knowledgeable of real estate properties (she can look at a property and have a sense of what it would need and how much the renovation would cost) – I discovered she is not only an agent, but also an investor herself who has quite a bit of experience in renovating properties
3. Her demeanor is extremely pleasant and consistently so – I would call her anytime and would never be made to feel that I am a bother.
4. She is a great listener – works hard at understanding and meeting your needs (I had to fly in a few times and she would make her schedule work for me)
5. She is profoundly customer focused – all about the service and not about making a quick commission. I am only a $150k-$200k investor and I was treated like a $million investor. I can safely say the level of service you receive is independent of the potential value of your purchase.
6. Melecia goes beyond the call of duty. Flying in each time was beginning to get expensive. If I found prospective properties on the net, Melecia would give quickly indicate property status, and for those that were available, she would offer to view them on my behalf. That level of service was invaluable to me.
7. Melecia is extremely patient and when I thought I wouldn't find what I was looking for since the marking is changing rapidly, she would continue to encourage me into not giving up and say to me “your house is out there and we will find it”. We have had more than 100 exchanges of emails, text messages, phone calls, before we landed on a sale. She never once made me feel that this relationship was taking too long to yield fruit.
8. Melecia has a penchant for detail. She pays attention to the fine print and is extremely vigilant.
Well we did find that house. She is masterful at putting a winning offer together – you have to know the game – and she does. I was also traveling at the time of closing. I trusted her to do the inspection without my presence. She was on top of her game with the agent and reviewed all the documentation like a hawk. Needless to say, the closing experience was seamless.
We’ve had such a wonderful working relationship that, given the fact that I was still traveling after closing, we asked Ms. Johnson to manage the renovation of the property for us. I couldn’t ask for more. Her entire disposition has been to treat the project as if it were her own. She is honest, trustworthy, has high standards, she’s ethical, timely, responsive, and just a tremendously good person. It’s been a relationship made in heaven.
My wife and I are truly happy we met Melecia. She’s been a complete treasure and a joy to work with. If you are in the market for an agent, look no further. She is small in stature, has a big heart and a head full of knowledge that will surely bring you happiness. We did not only find a real estate agent, we found a true friend.
Mrs. Johnson is a true real estate professional. I will honestly recommend her services to other professional athletes as myself or anyone who is looking for a stress free process of selling or buying a home.
I was seeking to sell my home in Davie FL and buying something closer to the beach. Mrs. Johnson was referred to me by a friend. She quickly identify the appropriate price to sell my home. Within 2 weeks I was in the process of accepting an offer for above asking price. Unfortunately, the buyer wanted to close in 15 days, this would not work for my relocation, so I had to pass. However, a few days later I received a full price offer and was able to close in my desired time frame.
Mrs. Johnson also found me a condo very close to Fort Lauderdale Beach. During the process of purchasing my condo I had to be out of town on business. Observing Mrs. Johnson performance, integrity and diligence in selling my home. I quickly learned she was very trustworthy. Therefore, I made her my power of attorney. I can't complain, she closed on my condo, had it painted in the colors of my previous house so that it would compliment my furniture. She also arranged and managed my relocation, before I got back.
I am now enjoying my new space.
I highly recommend Mrs. Johnson for her negotiating skills, knowledge and professionalism.
I was looking for a property in Broward County in FL, and by chance I found the most competent Realtor, Mrs Melecia Johnson. She helped me all the way through, from surveying the area till the last minute at closing with the same patience, dedication and professionalism.
Melecia nevertheless spared nothing in keeping me fully informed every step of the way and called me often to keep me abreast of things during the process. All my calls to her were promptly returned.
Melecia continues to keep in touch to see how the move is progressing. Thanks to her, she put me in touch with a terrific contractor who is doing the remodeling the condo.
Melecia is a true professional in every sense and an absolute pleasure to work with. I can't say enough about her.
I am an investor and I wouldn't think of using anyone else but Melecia to handle my buy/sale/rent transactions
I highly recommend Mrs Johnson.
I've dealt with several real estate agents over the years. None have compared to the service, skill and professionalism I received from Melecia. She is knowledgeable, conscientious and truly an expert at what she does.
One area which sets Melicia apart is her savvy negotiating skills. On my recent condo purchase, I thought I had lost the sale to a previous offer and acceptance by the seller. Melecia worked her creative magic and found loopholes in the offer. On top of that, she got the seller to accept my offer, which was actually lower than the original offer from the other buyer. Swift action and skillful negotiating on her part and it was a done deal. I am still amazed how she pulled that off!
Melecia deals in million dollar plus properties. Although my condo purchase was only in the 50's, a paltry commission in comparison, she nevertheless spared nothing in keeping me fully informed every step of the way and called me often to keep me abreast of things during the process. All my calls to her were promptly returned.
It's been a week since our closing. Melecia continues to keep in touch to see how the move is progressing. Thanks to her, she put me in touch with a terrific contractor who is doing the remodeling on the condo.
Melicia is a true professional in every sense and an absolute pleasure to work with. I can't say enough about her. I am getting the house that I'm selling ready to go on the market shortly. I wouldn't think of using anyone else but Melicia to handle my sale.

Great person to work with. I worked with her on the renovation of an investment property which turned out to be a great deal. Knows the market and is very professional. Will definitely work hard to get you what you want. Great person and great business professional. Will recommend her to anyone looking to invest, buy, sell or rent property.
I would recommend melecia to anyone looking to buy, sell or rent their property. I used melecia to find me a piece of property as a buyer. She worked her butt off after showing me a home that I really wanted but the seller wouldn't move on his price, looking at multiple homes to try and find a home that was better suited for my price range. After looking at many homes she went back to the home that I really wanted and STRONGLY negotiated the price with the seller and got the seller to finally come to his senses on his number. Thanks to Melecia's hard work and relentless pursuit I now live in the home of my dreams. I also used Melecia to find a tenant for my rental property. THANKS MELECIA!!!
