Working with Melanie was an absolute pleasure and one of the best decisions I made. From the onset, she was extremely communicative and easy to reach to answer all of my questions and ease my concerns, which really showed that she cared about me and understood my needs. Melanie booked multiple showings a day and provided honest advice which was helpful in narrowing my search. Having had a good understanding of the market, she was able to hone in on the right properties which saved a lot of time. She was very patient as I viewed all properties, giving me sound advice which lead to me finding the perfect place that suited all my needs. Melanie was exceptionally polite and professional throughout the whole process and her attention to detail made the entire experience smooth and stress-free. Her charm and thoughtfulness added a personal touch to our interactions. Without a doubt, I couldn’t have navigated my way through this rental market without her. Thank you so much Mel.

Melanie has been so informative about each home we checked out and with a kind heart. She took us in not know anything about buying a new home yet put us under her wing. She was prompt in answering all our questions and any we were not sure of she would get answered right away. She took her time to make sure we were making good decisions on our needs and wants for a new home. I felt like I was with someone I have known for years. Mel is like family and that’s a great thing to have when looking to buy. You want to feel at ease and safe. Which is something she always achieved. I am very glad we got to work with her. We are so happy with the purchase. Recommend her to family and friends. Thanks Mel for all you do.- Adam Dyke5 star - 06/23/2023
Mel made finding a place very easy and was always ready to get me in right away for a viewing. She kept things moving and made sure things didn't slip or miss a chance at a place.

I don’t even know where to start…actually I do…ALL-STAR! So, my husband and I had been searching for our first home for just over 2 years, with a number of different real estate agents and had no luck in finding our first home. The pressures of just getting into the market were unbearable and we began to get discouraged. That’s when it was recommended that we see Mel. Not only was she absolutely on top of everything but she went above and beyond to help us feel comfortable in our search for our new home. She is a genuine person who truly cares about her clients. The process was seamless, her expertise and the effort she put into everything helped us officially purchase our new home! We are unbelievably grateful, and I would recommend her to anyone. I will end this as I started…ABSOLUTE ALL-STAR!- L. Dionne5 star – 1/24/2023
