“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!
