Melanie Goldberger

Melanie found her calling in the real estate business after embarking on 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 the publishing industry with the constant need to stay ahead of trends, Melanie honed her negotiation skills working with all types of people under intense pressure, a skillset that translates perfectly into real estate sales.

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 chose to enjoy the California lifestyle through college at UC San Diego before her advertising career brought her to the East Coast. After giving birth to her son during a snowstorm in New York City, Melanie and her husband decided it was time to relocate back to Los Angeles to be closer to family and friends. They landed in Pacific Palisades where they’ve been actively involved in the community for more than 12 years, playing paddle tennis at the Jonathan Club and coaching basketball and baseball for their children, ages 10 and 13, at Palisades Park and the YMCA.

Bringing a wide variety of long‐term relationships from her varied experiences in the Los Angeles area, Melanie excels at pairing people together, adeptly matching buyers and sellers. Her extensive sales experience makes her perfectly suited to guide clients calmly and intelligently through the complicated transaction process, helping them make the right decisions for their families. Melanie says the real estate business allows her to share her love and passion for the city while utilizing her professional sales and marketing skills with a company as innovative as The Agency.

Melanie is incredible. Really worked the phones and kept her eye on upcoming listings during this time of low inventory. We used her for the sale of one home and the purchase of another and both Escrows were seamless due to her diligence. She was always readily available to answer questions.   She fought for us on both sale and purchase.

Melanie was awesome. She negotiated a price for us that exceeded our expectations and was an absolute steal, getting us the place below market. She is a local with great knowledge of the area. I would absolutely recommend Melanie to anyone looking to buy in the Palisades.

-Bill W.

Very efficient and got over asking price. She stayed on top of the entire process from start to finish. We received constant communication and updates which put us at ease.

-Don B.

Melanie is the most amazing broker ever!!! She was beyond patient, kind, thorough, smart, hard-working and became a friend. She even brought us a coffee pot and fresh coffee for our first morning in our house! She was diligent, honest, open, friendly and just completely amazing.

Melanie did an unbelievably fantastic job selling my house. My property was incredibly challenging to handle - I had a rough tenant, a full renovation, it fell out of escrow, etc - and Melanie handled every aspect of it superbly. She did most of this single handedly because I was out of town  working the entire time it was on the market. I picked Melanie because of her track record but when I met her it was her warm personality that really won me over. I have never sold a house before, it was extremely intimidating to me, and she helped me through every single step of the process - she found me painters, designers, stagers, everything! We worked together for months and I have to say I would recommend her to anyone and everyone I know who is looking to sell their house. She made this very difficult process a wonderful experience and I couldn’t be happier with the result.

Melanie has been fantastic helping me find a condo to buy in the West side area. I appreciated that she began the process by sitting down with me to really learn and understand what was important for my first home. Instead of going through countless listings on my own as I had before I met Melanie,  she began feeding me only the listings that applied to me based on my needs. I was also impressed by the number of hidden pocket listings of which she was aware helping to keep me out of the painful bidding wars I have encountered in the past. While my previous experience with other realtors has led me to feel they are often only motivated to make a sale, Melanie has personally gone far beyond this unfortunate norm. She truly cares first and foremost that I find a home that makes me happy and won't let me settle for anything less. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to find their special home.
