Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $25K in Carriere, MS.
Melanie went above and beyond in assisting me with taking care of many details outside her normal responsibilities in order to ensure that the sale moved forward. She has a very professional touch, was very informative with constant updates as the sale process moved forward. I would definetly use her realestate services again for any future sales or purchases I may have.
Being in the military we have special needs. So we knew we needed to find a knowledgeable realtor in the Mississippi area. After talking to a few we settled on Melanie. She was very knowledgeable of the area and very professional, friendly and not pushy. She did not try to go way out of out price range and my spouse and I felt she was trustworthy. No matter what the price of the house we ask her to show us because we did look on our own as well she would give us information and show it if we wanted to see it. Never did she make us feel like we were wasting her time. And let me tell you we did not find a house right away. When I was ready to give up Melanie was right there and would say something like if you need a break take it I will be here for you when you are ready. (See not pushy) And that is why I didn't stop looking. Her welcoming personality, honest and direct approach, professional attitude knowledge of the area, the fact that in my 30 years of dealing with realtors I find her a breath of fresh air due to her trust worthy approach to finding her clients a home not a house. Well she is the best, if I had my way she would get an award for her approach to homes selling. Because let’s face it, we are not looking for a house to live in we are looking for a home to live in.
Thank you, Melanie for being there for us.

Melanie was very knowledgeable about the properties in the area. If she didn't know the answer to my question, she was sure to find out. She was always available to text, which was great!!! She made the process of buying a home very enjoyable.

Melanie Wilkinson brings urban skills to a non-urban marketplace. Melanie represented us in the settlement of our Uncle's estate by listing and selling a home in Picayune Mississippi. She was very professional in every aspect of the process, including dealing with the legal system and court requirements for a listing and sale. As executors residing in another state, we needed someone we could trust and rely on and Melanie over delivered. She is an excellent real estate agent and an outstanding representative of the real estate profession.
I began shopping for a home over a year ago and I spoke to several agents but was disappointed in all of them. My neighbor then told me about Melanie, she said she sold her home for her a couple of years ago and did an outstanding job. I called Melanie and she was very pleasant to work with. We looked at homes for several months before I found the one I loved. Melanie was patient with me and my demands on her. She helped me place an offer on the home I liked and after a couple counter offers, I got the home for less than I had wanted to spend on a home, which made me very happy. I love my new home and its location in a great neighborhood. Thanks to Melanie, I expect to live her a long time and I always tell everyone to call Melanie if they want to work with an exceptional agent who cares about you and not how much money she can make off of you!

Melanie listed and sold our home last year for my husband and I. She made the selling of our home a much less stressful process than we ever thought it could be. Melanie made herself available to us for any questions or concerns we had and walked us throught the process step by step. She found us a buyer and was an excellent negotiator. We got the price we wanted and have since moved out of state, however, we still have friends and family in the Picayune area and will be recommending Melanie to them for their real estate transactions.

Thanks to Melanie, we found our beloved cabin getaway. Melanie was very patient with us, as we covered many miles together in search of the perfect place. She was very knowledgeable of the immediate and surrounding areas, even providing information as to services available in each area. We appreciated her positive attitude, candor, and helpfulness.

I had been looking for property in Pearl River County, Ms. for about 2-3 years and Melanie provided the information on the properties I looked at. I was not in a hurry to purchase anything and Melanie was very patient and always helpful and diligent in trying to find property for me to look at. Once my wife and I decided to move, Melanie lined up about 8 homes for us to look at. One of the houses she showed us was a magnificient home with some property that was a foreclosure. We immediately put a contract on the house. There were some things that needed attention and repairing and Melanie negotiated with the repo bank to get those things fixed at no charge to us and she also got the bank to pay $4000 of my closing costs. We are thrilled with Melanie as our real estate agent and you will be too.
Both my sister and my mother both purchased a home from Melanie and they were very pleased with her services, so they recommended I contact her to purchase my home. I was very impressed with her knowledge, expertise and communication skills. Melanie found the exact home, land, shop, and fishing pond I was looking for. I enjoyed working with her and have and will recommend her in the future to friends, relatives, and anyone else looking to buy or sell. She is AWSOME!!!
