I’ve been a full-time residential REALTOR® helping people buy and sell homes in the Greater Sacramento region since 2001. Before starting my career in real estate, I was a legal assistant for thirteen years. My experience includes work in plaintiff’s and defense litigation, and for a healthcare organization’s General Counsel. My background taught me about negotiation and the paramount importance of putting a client’s interests first – the essence of “fiduciary duty,” the highest legal standard of trust and care. I'm honored to have become a top producer in my office through referrals from happy clients to their friends, family and co-workers. I consider your trust as a God-given gift. It is my Job #1 to exceed your expectations through the utmost respect and service of what you need from me as your real estate consultant.

I grew up in Applegate, a little town in the Placer County foothills off of Highway 80. It’s most noted for being the place where chains are put on long haul trucks before they travel up the snowy roadway. My father, a judge, retired in 1985 from the Placer County Superior Court, and was one of the first Japanese-Americans to be elected to the bench in California. My husband, Ron, and I own investment property and are blessed to enjoy a wonderful community of family and friends. When not showing homes or helping a seller prepare a property for the market, I like to work on my running form or try out a new recipe. In my middle years, I've reconnected to staying fit and learning how to achieve optimal health for the energy and strength to meet life's opportunities.

—Jane, Citrus Heights

Melissa Caldwell was great to work with. As a first time home buyer, I had many questions and she was always available to answer them and to help me guide me through the process without any judgment. I would definitely recommend her to friends and family.


—Dylan Heiser, Sacramento
  /  

Melissa Caldwell was very helpful, courteous and professional. She always kept us informed throughout the sales process. She advised us promptly when additional items/info was needed and was always available to answer our questions.


—Steven Brown, Litchfield Park AZ

I would strongly reccomend Melissa Caldwell as your agent. Her service and dedication are tops,


—Ron Maedche, Fair Oaks, Ca
  /  

I've used Melissa's services more than once & she was wonderful. Always making sure I had all the information I needed to make my decisions. She went out of her way to find me the best property when I bought my current home, and helped me get a great deal when I sold my former home. I highly recommend her services both when buying or selling!!!


—Valerie Hitchcock, Fair Oaks, CA
  /  

I selected Melissa because of my previous experience with her, which was excellent, buying my first home. This is now my second home and the experience was fantastic. Her knowledge, experience, and attentiveness to details that others would miss is a key factor that caused me to partner with her this time around. I look forward to working with her again when I purchase a third home in the coming years. With her level of service and performance, she's definitely my realtor for life.


—Andrew W., Sacramento, CA
  /  

Melissa Caldwell is not only professional, but also caring, personal, understanding and truly interested in my thoughts and feelings. She answered my questions and concerns in a timely manner. I couldn't have had a better agent representing me and my family. I feel that I have a new friend. What more could I ask for! I believe Melissa will provide the same service to others that she did for me. She gives real estate agents a good name because of her integrity and professionalism.

Additional Testimonials

Melissa Caldwell provided us services well above & beyond in a very professional & business like manner. Since I am out of town, she would not hesitate to ask if there are any help or assistance especially after the estate sale, when something went wrong. When we discussed something over the phone, an email confirmation will follow. Overall all, I am happy she was the one who answered my email ASAP when I was just inquiring. Your company has a very qualified and efficient and patient REALTOR...Kudos to Melissa C.


—Marissa Cruz, Seller
  /  August 2014

We just wanted to let you know how pleased and satisfied we are with the service we received from Melissa Caldwell. She handled the sale of our home in Sacramento. We felt she went above and beyond to accommodate us as well as the buyer. Our situation was a little different and we needed to move quickly. Melissa kept us informed and was right on top of everything going on. We were dreading the process of selling the house based on past experiences with other agents and Melissa made the experience pretty much a breeze. She was professional, thorough, and a joy to work with. We felt she was really in our corner but balanced as she was representing both parties. We would not hesitate in recommending Melissa. We only wish we could take her with us to look for a home in Ohio!


—Don and Laura Langdon, Sellers
  /  August 2014

Melissa was very helpful and very friendly. When we left questions on her phone, she always got back to us right away. She was very professional, yet fun to be with. We would recommend her to anyone wishing to buy or list a house.


—Pete and Marian Petersen, Buyers
  /  March 2014

I will recommend Melissa Caldwell highly as I learn of anyone looking for a home. Melissa was very responsive, caring, knowledgeable, and eager to assist. I always felt that she was looking out for my best interests. I'm thankful for Lyon and it was helpful that Lyon has so many satellite offices. It made it convenient and efficient for Melissa and I to meet on short notice. My overall experience = A+.
