"Melody was an amazing realtor and we definitely recommend her for finding your dream home. We were first time home buyers and she was instrumental in all phases of the home-buying process, from start to finish. We had attended open houses for about six months before getting serious about buying. We met her several months earlier and she was on our short list of agents to interview, and we chose her because she was extremely personable and knowledgeable about our target search area. She provided suggestions for us based on our wants/needs. We were pretty picky about what we were looking for, and through the months, she showed us a couple dozen homes. When we found our dream home, she made the purchase process seamless, including helping us draft the contract, explaining the terms and documents, highlighting the tight timelines, providing contacts for our consideration to conduct inspections/other services, and walking with us every step of the way. Above all, and the reason Melody is an excellent realtor, is that she is super organized. This trait helped ensure our home-buying experience was a success. We will use her again some time in the future."
