I hired Melanie to help sell my mother's house in Austin after she passed away. Melanie did a fantastic job. The house was in the middle of a renovation when we had an unsolicited offer to buy the house as is. The deal later fell through, and Melanie worked with me through the process. We ended up closing on the house with a different set of buyers. Throughout the process, Melanie managed the house as I was out of state. She visited the house at least 2-3 times / week, worked with the pool and lawn vendors, and took care of absolutely everything. Melanie was amazing through the very emotional process of selling my mother's house; she was great at explaining all of the ramifications through the negotiations. Throughout the process, Melanie was professional and friendly. I enjoyed working with her and can recommend her without reservation.

We worked with Melanie for a long time to find our first home.
She showed us a TON of houses, and never lost patience with us even though we were exceptionally picky and sometimes slow to make decisions. She knew the areas we were interested in well and kept plugging along until we found our home.
She treats her clients like real human beings, has exceptional knowledge of the market and house maintenance pitfalls, and took the time to get to know us and what we value during the process. It always felt like she was acting on our behalf and not on behalf of her commission. At every step of the process, she went above & beyond our expectations.
After the contract was signed, she negotiated some important repairs after the inspection, and guided us through the closing process.
Melanie is a true pro; we can't recommend her highly enough. She is more than a realtor; she's a true advocate.

Thank you for the kind words! I thoroughly enjoyed working with you both. We have a crazy market in ATX. I am a true believer that everything happens for a reason, and we finally found the home you were supposed to have!
Melanie is experienced in all aspects of buying & selling homes and acreage. During the time we’ve worked with Melanie she helped us sell a large family home on acreage, buy acreage, sell a custom carriage home on acreage, and purchase our current home. The primary reason my wife and I decided to work with Melanie was the time she took to find out who we were as people before she started marketing herself or a particular home. The first time we met her she wanted to understand our interests, our long term goals, and know about our family; all of which helped her to better understand our wants and needs and make appropriate recommendations for buying or selling. Melanie’s e-commerce background gives her an edge on developing the right attention grabbing marketing. Her analytical skills in researching market comparisons helped us to come up with accurate asking or selling price. Lastly, Melanie leverages the extensive network of agents she has relationships with to get the word out on a listing even before it goes on the market which helped us to get a contract on the sale of our unique carriage home within a week.

Melanie helped us with the sale of our home to an investor. She is a tough negotiator and knows the contracts inside and out. She was able to coordinate selling our existing home and buying a new one, without having to move twice, which is difficult in this market environment! I am so thankful that I found her. I have worked with many realtors, and none have been as knowledgeable or as hard working as Melanie Angermann. I highly recommend Melanie for both buying and selling real estate.

Words cannot describe how lucky we were to work with Melanie.. I would highly recommend her to everyone.
We were first time buyers and were guided the whole way through this crazy process with such care and professionalism.
Melanie understood the importance of getting us our first house and followed up on ALL angles possible to ensure that we would be able to attain our new home. She not only got us our dream home, but she made the process seem like a piece of cake. She kept us informed, educated us on the process, and continues to follow up with us. I can't thank her enough.
She gives 110%. She is all about integrity and excellence. Extremely detailed and patient and on top of all this, she is such a kind soul. I really can't imagine getting any better service than this.
If you want to be part of a winning team, you can with Melanie.
Melanie was extremely attentive, knowledgeable, and professional throughout my entire condo-buying process. I was looking for a downtown condo for 8 months from out-of-state, and she went out of the way to ensure I found the right place at a price I was happy with. She was active in negotiations, inspections, and closing; I was kept informed throughout the sale. She worked hard to negotiate repairs and was extremely thorough. When I was unable to to be at the closing, she helped coordinate for a notary and made the entire process run as smoothly as possible. Melanie also made recommendations for subcontractors and called around to find a great property management company. She has my vote of confidence, and I will be using her in the future for any real estate transactions in the greater Austin area.

Melanie provided excellent, professional service in helping us make our purchase.
She communicated well with the listing agent and got all of our questions answered
in a timely manner. She has an excellent knowledge of Austin real estate. From
the first showing through closing on the property we bought she was amazing. We recommend her very highly to anyone looking to purchase real estate in the Austin area. We would definitely use her again.

Melanie helped my husband and I buy our first house. She was there with us every step of the way. With her guidance everything from the offer to the closing went smoothly. We will work with Melanie again if we ever decide to move.
We worked with Melanie to sell our old home and purchase a new one. We were picky in what we were looking for in a new home, so It took us awhile to find the perfect place. Melanie was very patient as we rejected perfectly good homes that just weren't the perfect place for us. She was always very responsive to questions and willing to work around our work schedules. When we did find that perfect home, Melanie was excellent at guiding us through the negotiation and legal process. As a result we are very happy in our new home and feel we got a good deal on both transactions.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Windsor Road, Austin, TX.
SOLD in less than 4 days during the Christmas holidays no less! Melanie made selling my home not only quick and easy but fun. Her knowledge of the local market and her aggressive approach to getting my home ready for photos and listing helped me get my house sold within a few days of hitting the MLS. Melanie understands the emotional components of selling a house and was there for me during all steps of the process. Her business acumen and eye for detail made the transaction smooth and problem free for both me as the seller and for the buyer as well. I'd highly recommend her as a listing agent and if I were in the market to buy, I'd use her for my agent at any time.
Thank you Melanie - you're top notch!
