Testimonials

We worked with John Melnar for over a year looking at properties before deciding on the perfect spot. John was patient, however, persistent in his search for the right piece of property for us. He was very knowledgeable of the flora and fauna in the area and always ready to meet us for a tour. He provided transportation on the property and handled all transactions in a professional and courteous way

John and Debby M.

Working with John made the transition and sale of the property as seamless as possible. Even when the dark clouds of uncertainty from lenders, title offices failing to update in a timely manner,  John was the torch of confidence that the sale would get done. At the end of the sale it was as if a weight was lifted without any exertion on my behalf. There is no doubt if I needed to sell another property John is who I would call.

We enjoyed working with John, his laid back style in communicating was a good match for us. We very much appreciate his efforts and especially his regular trips to the property to check on things and recommend any items for us. He did a great job in assisting us through the sale of the two properties and we would not hesitate to recommend him to others looking to buy or sell. Overall a very good experience!

Jeff A.

John did a great job in selling our Bell County land.  He worked very well with not only us, but the purchaser. His knowledge of the area was extremely helpful in the sale. I would recommend using John on any sale or purchase you may have.

Lisa K.

With the help of John Melnar, we approached the task as a team and the results left us with a new property that we fall more in love with everyday. Virtually all of our ‘wishlist’ items were met and then some. Big thanks to John for his patience, guidance, while teaching and guiding tours through our evaluation of properties until our new ranch became a part of the family. Thanks again for exceeding our hopes and expectations!

Carl G.

My wife and I had been looking for our retirement ranch for the last 8 years using various websites. It proved to be a hit and miss endeavor, lots of wasted time and miles in search of our place. We called John Melnar and gave him a thorough description of what we were looking for. Two weeks later we went and looked at several places and made an offer on one. Fortunately someone else offered cash and we did not get the place. I say fortunately because two weeks after that John called us again. We went and looked at another place which was perfect for us, made an offer and closed on our ranch shortly thereafter.  One stop shop for all your real estate needs. John is very knowledgeable and was a tremendous help. I highly recommend John and his entire team.

JL Howard

John did a wonderful job for us, we had a previous realtor for 1 year with no results. First time I met John on the property, he pulled my truck out of the mud. (I got stuck that morning). We had a good conversation and like he said, he sold our property. …. John did a wonderful job for us! God bless you!
