As a Listing Agent, I truly understand the stress a real estate transaction can bring. My goal is to always exceed my client's expectations. There is an unsettling anxiousness while selling, know that I have been there, both personally and professionally. Engaging a professional who genuinely cares and one that can provide a comprehensive evaluation of your property's value and marketability is the best advice I can give. Selling a lifestyle, I take pride in creative, innovative marketing to reach our markets next buyers.

I have built my business by devoting myself to serving the needs of my clients before, during and after the transaction.

I have helped hundreds and my goal is to keep building relationships as clients refer me to friends and family members who appreciate the premium level of service that I try to provide. The foundation of my career is a philosophy of "a client for life".

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $875K in Salem, SC.

We contacted Melanie based on a referral from a neighbor. After meeting with us twice, Melanie developed a very professional Marketing approach to selling our home. Her explanation of how she uses and proposed to use technology and the Internet to list our home was very impressive. Following the sale of our home and another lot, both of which sold within a week after being listed, Melanie showed her expertise in other ways - her follow-up regarding the sales and each step of the both closing processes was excellent. The sale and closing of both the house and lot went very smoothly, which we attribute to her attention to detail

On a separate note, Melanie makes the process of selling a home a very pleasant experience - she offers professional, polite service with direct feedback, and a great sense of humor. Having both and sold several homes, we rank Melanie as #1 among all of our realtors. We are thankful to have had the opportunity to meet and get to know her.

Sold a home in 2013.

Melanie served as our realtor in the selling of our home. Due to several circumstances beyond anyone's control, the transaction became somewhat complicated. Melanie tirelessly advocated for us and our best interests, while still maintaining a good rapport with both the buyer and the buyer's agent. She is extremely professional and knows her stuff. If you are buying or selling a home, call Melanie. You will be glad you did!  More Less

Bought a home in 2005.

We bought our first house with Melanie Fink by connecting with her on-line. She helped us above and beyond what we expected. When the time came, she handled everything! She is professional, polite, and follow thru is beyond reproach. We recommended her to our daughter when she moved to our area and helped her purchase her home. We did not hesitate to call her to list our house to sell as she sold us another one. We feel she is family as she is direct and honest with us. So we have actually bought two houses with her.  More Less
