I met Melissa two years ago at an open house around the corner from our home. I was impressed with her positive energy and enthusiasm at the time. I let her know that we would be selling our home after I retired and she stayed in touch with us, so when we decided to sell during the pandemic, she was ready. Working with Melissa on selling our house was incredible. She was very responsive, always available for a quick phone call or text and we felt like we were her only client, though I know that we were not. As we worked to get our house ready for market, Melissa had “a guy” for anything that we needed done around the house, (i.e. - plumber, electrician, tree service, landscaper, bathroom refinisher, painter, handyman) and they all showed up on time and for a reasonable price. Melissa knows the real estate market and quickly became a trusted advisor whose opinion I valued. She was forthright with her opinion and would advise us on which way she was felt we should go regarding what should be done to get the house ready for sale and how to market the house. While she had her opinion, she always deferred to us for the final decision. I know of two other sellers who used Melissa who did to listen to her advice on how to price their house. Both sellers overpriced their homes and the houses sat on the market for weeks. So when Melissa recommended that we price our home just under what she thought we could get in order to bid up the price, we held our breath and agreed. She was spot on as the house sold in 4 days with three offers well over asking price. Melissa was with us right through the closing and available to answer any question we had. We plan on using her as we begin the search for a new home and recommended Melissa to our daughter and son-in-law; she sold their house in 1 weekend with 11 offers. Melissa is confident, smart, personable and highly competent. If you are buying or selling a home, Melissa should be your realtor. Yes, she is that good!
