Right from the start Melissa was very professional and proficient. She wanted to get to know what we really wanted in a home. She advocated for us like family. We found a home and closed in less than 3 months! I'd recommend Melissa to anyone!

You kindly shared your personal wants and desires with me. You were realistic and quick to respond... How could I not want to do everything in my power to help you achieve your goal as quickly as possible?

Melissa was excellent. She followed up with the bank and buyer every few days and then sent me an email letting me know that she had contacted them and informed me of any changes or concerns. She is very friendly, maintains constant contact, and an excellent realtor. I would recommend her to everyone.
Melissa did a great job from start to finish. She went out of her way to save me time and money. She was able to significantly negotiate down the price of my first investment property right before closing. Amazing!
I would recommend her to friends and family. Thank you Melissa.

You saved my time by knowing what you wanted right from the start. The least I could do was get you a great price on it. Thank you for also taking the time to share your experience.

I highly recommend Melissa. She’s very personable, hardworking and was a pleasure to search for a home with.
I had looked at many houses to narrow the focus of where I wanted to look before I got a realtor. But I really didn’t know what I wanted in a house. That was our first step, to just talk about what I wanted. Melissa asked many questions that brought about responses that were key in determining what kind of house I was looking for and it was a great process for me to actually verbalize what I wanted. Once we were on the same page we both went to work. I spent time looking at properties on the website and we began getting together at least once a week for about 3 ½ months to looks at houses.
There were many things that I was grateful for that Melissa brought to our search. First was her attention to detail, I tend to get lost in the big picture but I can’t tell you how many times Melissa noticed something small that made the house great or was a sign of a problem. Second she draws out details with questions. She was always asking me to think about what I would do with a certain aspect of a house if I lived there, it was a great exercise. But the thing I liked most about Melissa is she also went to work online. Once she became comfortable with what I wanted she suggested several places to look at that I had not seen. In fact the house that I ended up buying was one of Melissa’s finds.
This was a big deal for me, I was looking to buy my last house. Melissa was aware of that and never rushed me. She gave me the time to think and once we had our favorites we revisited them several times. Once I made the decision Melissa was invaluable in the negotiation process. I believe the way we handled the offers was the best way to do things and I trusted her suggestions completely.
I love my house, it is truly my dream house. If you decide to work with Melissa your will get a hard worker, someone with great instincts, good taste and who really loves what she does. She was one of the first people I invited over after all the furniture was in and the painting was done, and she was almost as happy as I was.
Melissa made me to feel that I was her only "client". She listened to what I was looking for, was always prepared to go see all of the properties that I wanted to see. She was always very knowledgable about the properties. All questions were answered promptly, she was always professional. I have purchased several properties in the past and my experience with her was outstanding.

Melissa was very professional and very thourough. I felt like I was in good hands. She always followed up when she said she would. She was just a great person to deal with. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
As a first time home buyer, Melissa was incredibly helpful. I had no idea what I was doing. She walked me through the process and answered all my questions without any hesitation. Very quickly she knew my preferences and limitations. She was able to work with me and my hectic schedule. I recommended her to my uncle who was extremely satisfied with his experience. I think her skills, after having tried to work with several other agents, are exceptional.
