“We couldn't have been happier with Melanie and her work. She was extremely professional, kind, and helpful throughout the entire process. Selling our home felt like a huge undertaking but Melanie stayed on top of all the details, communicated with us frequently, and managed the repairs to make our sale quick and profitable! At the same time she helped us navigate a really competitive real estate market to buy our forever home. We are so pleased with all of her hard work!”
Kate Johnson, Alexandria (Buyer)
“I met Melanie through her husband, who was recommended to me by another realtor to manage my rental property in Arlington for many years. Over the years, Melanie took more and more responsibility for managing my property. It was an opportunity to experience how smart, organized, efficient, and resourceful she is. Melanie is a hard worker, accessible, and extremely personable! I feel incredibly lucky to have had her by my side while going through this process!
Melanie sold my house on the first day it was placed on the market! (Which to me spoke of her connections with other realtors, and the market in general.) She was extremely professional unbiased, and thoughtful when elucidating the pros and cons of the offers that came in. She wanted me to decide without being pushed in any way by her opinions, but was generous with feedback when I asked for it. She and her partner staged the house to make it show so well. In short, I could not have had a better experience!”
Gretchen Maisch, Bethesda MD (Seller)
“I sent a survey to multiple brokers asking several questions.
Melanie's area experience, years of sales, industry knowledge and other answers were critical and perfect for the quick sale of my house.
Melanie's experience in the area, Glenn's staging and her team of contractors to help improve the property were huge assets helping sell my house quickly.
Melanie's use of DocuSign worked out great. I turned over control to Melanie and left for Florida after discussing the improvements to be done. She managed the contractors for painting and general improvements and kept me in the loop every step of the way.
She helped me understand the improvements status, getting ready for the sale events, process for the sale and the events for getting to the closing. Very professional and kept me informed about everything thru timely texts and phone calls.
Glenn's and Melanie's staging, improvement ideas, sales process and advertising maximized my house's value and the sale exceeded my expectations.
Very professional and smooth process. ”
Dave B, Alexandria VA (Seller)
“Melanie and Glenn were professional, responsive and their recommendations were solid. Additionally, they were personable and easy to deal with.

“Ms. Hogg is the consummate professional and deadly accurate in her knowledge of this industry. The speed and precision she works at is impressive. Melanie is truly the top 1% of the top 1%.
Trust and integrity are two absolute musts when entering any business relationship. Ms. Hogg receives top marks in both areas. her ability to deliver good news with flair, bad news with grace, and honest assessments with care is amazingly impressive. Although not a broker term, Ms. Hogg's 'bedside manner' is equitable - if not exceeds - the best physicians. ”
“This was my third home purchase and, upon reflection, I've never felt as informed, coached and mentored throughout this purchase as I had in previous purchases. This is the most aggressive market that I've participated in during my 30 years of living in this area. Melanie kept me informed, gave me an understanding of the pros/cons during each negotiation and is delightful to work with. She's professional and encouraging. I would recommend her for first time as well as seasoned home buyers.
From knowledge about selecting your mortgage loan to understanding the various home appliances to window treatments to tree care, I consider her to be an expert in all of those topics + more. At least once during each showing, I would ask her "what is this" and she always had an answer.
It truly was a pleasure working with and I highly endorse using her to purchase, sell or rent your home.”
Regina Schofield, Alexandria VA (Buyer)

“Melanie is a fabulous broker! She was recommended by a friend, and I couldn't have been happier. She sold our condo and helped us purchase a home. Melanie has wonderful personal qualities, professionalism and expertise. She is knowledgeable about the market, realistic about what to offer when purchasing a house and what to consider when selling a home. Thanks to Melanie, we sold our condo in six days. In addition, our first and only offer was accepted when we purchased our home. There were three competing offers.
Melanie is very personable and professional. When I met her, she was enthusiastic and came prepared. She had a portfolio of who she was, the steps of buying and selling a house, and had even researched the properties within our complex. I felt at ease, and felt like a big weight had been lifted off my shoulders.
She is client focused and good at building relationships and trust. I trust her and have confidence in her judgement. If she had an opinion or suggestion, she would provide pros and cons so that we could make an informed decision. She is flexible, and always brought me to a property based on my schedule. She communicated often and was very responsive to my emails and calls. She is a good listener and only showed me properties that I would be interested in. She is punctual and sometimes got to properties earlier. If she saw one that I wouldn't like, she wouldn't waste my time.
Melanie has the client's best interests at heart. She always went the extra mile. She basically managed a renovation, helped us find the best contractors with the best rates, and saved us a lot of money. She helped relieve the stress of buying our house and selling our condo. Best of all, due to Melanie's market research and expertise, our condo was on the market for a short time, and I got the house that I wanted with my first offer!

“We were referred to Melanie Hogg by an out of area realtor and just purchased with her. We are new to the DC Metro area and she was willing to show us options, discuss commute possibilities, and help us to be informed. Without swaying us one way or the other she truly listened to our needs and what we wanted. She is professional, hard working, responsive, and was an integral part of being able to find a home there. We highly recommend Melanie Hogg not just as an agent but as a decent person who listens and wants to make her clients happy. ”
