Sold a home in 2014.
Primary point of contact: Steven Carpenter
I worked with Steven Carpenter of Wakamo and Associates and couldn't have been more pleased. Steven is the consummate professional! He is knowledgeable, thorough, overly accommodating and a terrific negotiator.

Within two weeks of listing we had an offer just $3,000 off list price, and that's without the open house that was scheduled.

Use Wakamo and Associates and USE STEVEN CARPENTER!

Sold a home in 2013.
Melissa and her team are extremely knowledgeable about the neighborhood, the market, and the process. Mary Ann and Tom (my agents) couldn't have been more engaged and communicative. The market when I sold my house was literally all over the place, and even when things got tough they pep-talked me and kept my spirits up - eventually we found our buyers and got 3 offers in 24 hours. On top of that they also helped us buy our new home in Smyrna under list price in the neighborhood we wanted to be in. If you want to sell a house in the Grant Park / Ormewood / East Atlanta area these guys are the best, and they can also help you buy wherever it is you are trying to go. Loved working with them.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Grant Park, Atlanta, GA.
I can't say enough good things about Melissa and Red Robin Group. They were great to work with throughout the sale of my house and the purchase of my new home. She has extensive knowledge of the neighborhood and did an outstanding job of recognizing what I wanted in my next home. I would absolutely recommend her and she would be the first person on my list to contact in any future transaction.

Sold a home in 2013.
Melissa is our next door neighbor, so when we wanted to sell the vacant lot behind our house she was our first choice. We were surprised with the number of prospective buyers she found. We were very satisfied with the entire process, and with the final outcome.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $525K in Grant Park, Atlanta, GA.
I recently purchased a house in Grant Park that was listed by Melissa. I chose to go through the process without an agent. So Melissa represented her sellers and I interacted with her directly more frequently than a buyer normally would. Melissa was professional, knowledgeable, and detail-oriented throughout. She treated me with respect and never tried to "get something by" me because I was unrepresented. I had an attorney review all the contract paperwork (Melissa had to prepare it all since I didn't have an agent) and he confirmed that everything was exactly as it should be. We closed on time and as expected due in part to Melissa's follow-through and attention to detail. If I wanted to list my home in Grant Park I would definitely use Melissa.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Ormewood Park, Atlanta, GA.
Nobody knows (and sells) Intown Atlanta like Melissa Wakamo – which is obvious by the number of Red Robin signs adorning front yards in Ormewood Park, Grant Park, East Atlanta and the surrounding area. We appreciate Melissa for negotiating the sale of our bungalow in Ormewood Park (in a down market) and for negotiating the purchase of our new home in Candler Park – we couldn't be happier.

Hello, 8octave. I'm so sorry that you felt Red Robin Group was unresponsive. As a Zillow Premier Agent, we receive a tremendous number of inquiries that are not for our listings -- we try to respond, but sometimes it is just not possible to respond to everyone. We prioritize by responding first to inquiries about our listings, making sure that we offer the very best service possible to our seller clients. Then, as we have time, we respond to inquiries that are in our primary market area or have specific questions we can answer. That's why it's great that you have other agents you can reach out to on Zillow -- they offer multiple agents on each listing for you to send your inquiries. Again, I apologize that we missed speaking with you and I wish you the best of luck in your home search!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $275K in Grant Park, Atlanta, GA.
Melissa was a pleasure to work with. As a Listing Agent, she presented us with a thorough marketing plan. She knows the local real estate market and is very well connected. As a result, our house sold very quickly. The entire team at Red Robin was very organized and kept us well informed during our closing process. We highly recommend Melissa Wakamo.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $250K in Ormewood Park, Atlanta, GA.
We worked with Melissa to sell our bungalow in Ormewood Park last year. Selling your house can be scary and stressful, especially these days. You have to make big decisions and carry out a lot of tasks. But with Melissa, we really felt like we had an expert on our side who could guide us gracefully through the process. Melissa knows a LOT about real estate in general and the Ormewood/Grant Park area specifically. She really inspired confidence and helped us with every decision.

I think what we most appreciated was Melissa’s candor about our particular situation: our house’s pluses and minuses, and the state of the market at the moment. She has a knack for being a realist but with plenty of optimism so you don’t despair!

Melissa told us exactly what we had to do to prep our house for market and masterfully staged it to showcase what our house had to offer. She was spot on about the correct asking price. In less than a month, we had sold our house!

In this difficult market, it is imperative to have a realtor who is dependable, honest and on top of their game. Melissa came recommended to me by a friend and I could not have been more thrilled to have worked with her. This was my first home to sell, and she had it under contract in 1 week! I had to pinch myself! The whole process was smooth from start to finish. Selling your home is a big decision and choosing a realtor is so important. If you want it done right and to be completely taken care of...call Melissa Wakamo!
