Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Richmond, VA.
When I started looking for homes I sent out a few emails to random agents here on Zillow. I was thrilled to receive a friendly and personalized response from Melissa. She addressed my needs and asked what she could do to help. It was much more than I had gotten from anyone else I had contacted. She is honest, easy to work with, and very knowledgeable about the Richmond area. I am a first-time homeowner, and she respected my budget and understood what I was looking for. She took time to show me dozens of homes and even let some of my friends and family members tag along. After about 3 and a half months, I am now a homeowner! I would absolutely work with her again!

Melissa did a fabulous job assisting me through my first home-buying and selling experience. She made the experience as painless as possible and really helped to put me at ease.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2012 for approximately $200K in The Fan, Richmond, VA.
Melissa is a top-notch real estate agent. Given that this was my first home search, I was naturally a little uneasy about finding a real estate agent online. After reading several reviews, I thought that Melissa seemed like a good fit. Little did I know, she would actually be a perfect fit.

Melissa is extremely knowledgeable, highly professional and most importantly, she truly cares about her clients. She tells it like it is and I increasingly developed trust in her knowledge of the local real estate market. While I would trust Melissa’s expertise in any commercial or residential search, she seems to shine when it comes to historic properties. Not only does she understand the nuances of historic homes, she has worked with many suitable, affordable contractors. Melissa’s legal background rounds out her very desirable and unique skill-set.

Although my inspection process seemed to go on forever, Melissa remained confident and worked tirelessly to negotiate terms and conditions with the seller’s agent. In the end, Melissa found me a home that was within my budget and located in my ideal neighborhood. I recommend Melissa Zavenko without hesitation.

Sold a home in 2012.
She was a friend before I hired her as a realtor. She exceeded my expectations in her attentiveness, negotiating abilities and timeliness.

Melissa was wonderful to work with. She has a deep knowledge of the Richmond area and can help you find the best deal in the best area. We are out of town so her relationships with local vendors was key to our success. You will not go wrong working with her to find a great home at a great value.

I cannot recommend Melissa highly enough. Not only is she an expert on the different neighborhood in Richmond, she is on top of what is going on in each area in terms of development. More importantly for anyone buying in the city, she KNOWS old homes. I began working with Melissa in August 2010 and closed on my house in April 2011. The length of the process is indicative of Melissa's patience. She worked carefully with me to find a home that was a great value in my budget. She always pulled comparable sales and helped me determine how much work the home would likely need (thanks, in part, to the great network of contractors, etc. that she knows). At one point, Melissa actually informed me that a fair price for a home I was VERY interested in was about $60,000 less than the asking price. Thanks to her hard work, I decided not to make an offer and avoided paying way too much for a house simply because I thought it was pretty. In the end, Melissa found me a house that had not yet been formally listed and is absolutely perfect for me. I never would have gotten this house without her and cannot thank her enough.

Showed home in 2011 in The Fan, Richmond, VA 23220.
I have come to know and work with melissa in the past year; through a client she helped buy a house in the Fan. We have since worked together on several projects and have developed a great workng relationship. I am Local Class A contractor; Melssa has recomended me to several clients. I have seen 1st hand that Melissa truly cares about her clients and the final outcome of their projects post closing.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in The Fan, Richmond, VA.
A smart, realistic and very competent agent. She worked with us through first a lengthy search and then an immensely complicated closing and was always ready to help. Her friendliness was a big asset, too.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $25K in Brookland Park, Richmond, VA.
Melissa Savenko assisted me in the purchase of an investment property. She got me in the property as soon as it came on the market and we got a GREAT deal/steal! I should also add that I find her personality very upbeat and entertaining....which is valuable in a real estate transaction process.
