Bringing a wealth of long-term relationships from her diverse professional network in the Los Angeles area, Melanie Goldberger excels at connecting people and is adept at matching buyers and sellers—oftentimes in off-market deals. Her extensive high-level sales experience and in-depth knowledge of the local L.A. market make her a perfect guide for clients navigating the complicated transaction process. In 2018, Melanie was named MVP of The Agency in Pacific Palisades, as was honored as one of The Wall Street Journal's Best of the Best Real Estate Professionals in the United States.
Melanie found her calling in the real estate business after a successful 20-year career in advertising sales at various magazines—such as Shape and Premiere magazines on the West Coast—and launching Maxim Magazine in New York City. Working in the fast-paced world of publishing, Melanie honed her ability to stay on top of important trends, negotiate effectively and stay cool under pressure, skills that translate perfectly into the real estate world.
A true Los Angeles native, Melanie was born and raised as the youngest of four children in the San Fernando Valley, where she attended Lanai Elementary and Birmingham High School. She attended the University of California at San Diego before her advertising career took her to the East Coast.
After giving birth to her son, Melanie and her husband returned to Los Angeles to be closer to family and friends, landing in Pacific Palisades. Melanie has been actively involved in the community for more than 15 years, playing paddle tennis at the Jonathan Club and coaching basketball and baseball for her children at Palisades Park and the YMCA.
"Melanie was a great help to us all throughout our purchase. We were first-time home buyers and were unaware of all the ups and downs during the whole process. She was a great help explaining the whole process and leading us through all the paperwork. We were back and forth with her almost every day with questions and inquiries and she responded immediately and precisely answered all of our questions, and calmed all our fears when the deal looked like it was falling out. We could not have done this without her. With her help, we are now moving into the house of our dreams."
