Known as the “Mellenthin Man,” Alan's experience with Mellenthin Ranch Homes is unmatched. His affinity for these noteworthy properties has led to features in acclaimed publications, articles, and even an inclusion in the popular architectural book, “A Birdhouse in Paradise – William Mellenthin and the San Fernando Valley Ranch Homes.”
These distinctive Valley homes, built by William Mellenthin, are clearly distinguished by their character-rich features which include large picture windows, a built-in birdhouse or cupola, used brick fireplaces separating the den and living room, detailed molding, and glass blocks in the kitchen which invite natural light within the home.
Although the charming features Mellenthin and his team selected are iconic, Mellenthins are, by nature, unique. No two are exactly alike.
If you are considering putting your Mellenthin home on the market, we encourage you to contact us for a free consultation and assessment. Alan’s unmatched experience, understanding, and appreciation for these unique properties ensures your listing is marketed with the passion required for these Valley originals.
Selling a Mellenthin is more than just selling a home - it’s selling a piece of history.
Alan was masterful in helping our family sell the house we lived in for over 60 years. Alan and his team provided us with the guidance and detail that was needed for us to make educated decisions regarding the listing, showing and selling of the house. Every step of the way, he and his team kept us updated and explained all the offers for us to review. Alan’s understanding of the market allowed us to price the home at the right price, and show the house at the right time. With over 20 offers to buy the house, we felt Alan understood our desire to sell the home to not just the highest bidder, but to the right buyer for the neighborhood - maintaining the architecture of a Mellenthin home.
The smartest thing I did in selling my house was listen to Alan's advice. From spiffing up my home, to establishing a pricing strategy, and all through the negotiations I followed Alan's experience and expertise. The results? 14 offers within 10 days, and it sold for nearly 12% over asking. He's a good guy to work with, always professional and always friendly. He's now finding us a new home.
My wife and I hired Alan to help us with the sale of our home in Sherman Oaks. We knew right away that Alan was the right fit because of his experience selling ranch homes in Sherman Oaks, his family was from the area, he knew the name of the builder and was also all around a nice guy. Compass, the firm he works with also offers a service called Compass Concierge which we used to ready the house for sale. Alan’s team of people (interior designer, stager, handyman and painters) handled everything for us, we literally had to move our stuff out and that was it.
