Ratings & Reviews

Melissa was fantastic! Her knowledge and support is what made my whole experience with buying a house much easier! I bought a short sale home, which is much more difficult than a normal sale, and she was very professional and on point. She made sure everything was done correctly and anytime I needed her or had any questions, she always responded quickly! Also, she is the reason why i was able to avoid a huge disaster in my new home! Her and my husband went to the walk through together the morning of the closing. Melissa noticed the faintest smell of what she thought might be gas. It was so minor, my husband did not even notice it. Instead of keeping her thoughts to herself just to close the deal quicker, she mentioned something right away and called the gas company! The house ended up having multiple gas leaks that my home inspector missed! The closing was postponed a week and the sellers ended up having to fix this problem and the financial burden did not end up on us as new homeowners. I truly believe this shows a lot about her character. She definitely has her clients best interests at heart. Highly recommended! 5 stars!

Bought a home in 2015 in Paynes Corners, Woodbridge, CT 06525.

Melissa always provided a prompt answer. Our purchase process hasn't finished, but I'm sure, she'll support us all the way.

But she has helped me much more than finding the right property. We'll relocate from the UK. She provided information about schools, shops, after school activities. She helped me to get information what kind of costs we might face if we go for a given type of property.

She is extremely helpful and supportive! I'd recommend her to everyone.

Melissa makes her clients feel comfortable with the buying/renting process. From the beginning she's on your side, not concerned with commission. Will be sure to include her in my next buying/selling experience!

Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Hill, New Haven, CT.

Working with Melissa was quite successful and a real pleasure. She worked tirelessly, initially trying to sell my condo and later renting it out for me. She found excellent tenants, one of whom she went to grade school with and knew quite well, and I have full confidence, and some relief, that the renters will uphold and respect the terms of the lease I signed with them.

I am planning to put my condo up for sale again when the current lease expires in June 2014. I will definitely want work with Melissa Lawson.

Sincerely,

Richard Weingarten

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $675K in Woodbridge, CT.

Melissa Lawson demonstrated a degree of intelligence and expertise far beyond our expectations. She found a qualified and motivated buyer for our home shortly after it was listed. Her approach to photographing our residence and her preparation of the descriptive material presented our home in a wonderful but accurate way. Her approach to the negotiating process, the inspection process and the preparations leading to the closing can be best described as optimistic, realistic and collaborative. She kept us focused on our goal and incorporated both our wants and needs with the wants and needs of the buyers. She was respectful of both sides while maintaining a fierce loyalty to our, (her clients) best interests. When it was clear that the sale would be successful, she also found us a wonderful rental in what seemed like a day or two.

After all of the convoluted, emotional and sometimes stressful experience of selling a home at such a challenging time, we were delighted to have her at our side, representing our interests and reminding us of what is important in the process of successfully selling a home. We recommend her without reservation.
