Choosing to buy a home is one of the biggest decisions you'll make in your life. It's a complex ordeal that requires a lot of planning, and instating the help of a knowledgeable REALTOR® to make the process run smoothly. To ready you for this, here is a general overview of what to expect and prepare.
Top notch professional service! Melanie is the epitome of professionalism and quality client care. Melanie helped us navigate a challenging market for selling our condo so we could move up to a single family detached home. We were well protected on both ends of the deal and were very pleased with negotiating on both selling and buying. Melanie really took the time to get to know us as a family and made sure our best interest was first and foremost taken care of. Throughout the busyness of the entire transaction process, she was personally present every step of the way. Her attention to detail and the "really important stuff" is what sets her apart. When we embarked on the move up process, our mortgage broker said "make sure you have a good realtor". We would recommend Melanie's service to anyone looking to buy or sell and buy. Thank you for getting us into the home of our dreams.
We just can't say enough good things about Melanie and felt like we had won the lottery working with her on the purchase of our home. You could tell right away that she knew her career and had our best interest in mind. Her professionalism, knowledge, honesty & amazing work ethic is 2nd to none. Not only is she informative, thorough, thoughtful and caring but the sweetest person we have ever met and we know for a fact that she'll be a part of our extended family forever. Melanie's expertise made the whole process simple and easy to understand. She was always there to answer any questions and offer her advice no matter what time of day which we found invaluable. We never felt like she was just trying to sell a house but help us make the best decision possible for our family. We would highly recommend Melanie to anyone searching for a new home_you won't be disappointed! The best part is we now have a new friend forever!
Melanie is such an amazing person to work with. She listens to what you want, provides information when needed and is genuinely a great person. Highly recommend her for all your real estate needs
We were so pleased with all Melanie did to help us get our house ready for sale and sold. She has the most impeccable eye for details and was tireless in her updates and efforts on social media. She had all the required documents ready before the house even had an offer and was not afraid to get her hands dirty with helping us clean and pack. She also helped us find the perfect realtor in the areas we were interested in as we were moving out of province. She is a gem and I would recommend her to anyone Thank you Melanie, you truly are exceptional!
I can't say enough good things about Melanie. She actually showed us a house that wasn't on our list and we fell in love with it. She was so knowledgeable, honest, and so hard working. She goes above and beyond and treats you like you are her only client. I have never had such a positive experience with a realtor and will never use anybody else. Melanie anticipates the needs of her clients and has the best advice. Thank you so much Melanie for helping us with this important purchase and making it as stress free as possible.
Great person to have on your team. Efficient, caring, and professional. Made the experience of buying a home during COVID period more bearable. Highly recommend, if you are looking for someone that puts you ahead of their own agenda.
Searching for a home during these extremely trying times could have been an unbearable experience. Melanie made it so much fun, we almost didn't want to find one - we wanted to keep looking with her every day. She is extremely knowledgeable of Campbell River and is very thorough in researching homes and their construction history - from builders to occupation dates, she leaves nothing out.. Even when we started to get desperate she wouldn't allow us to "settle" but kept on until we did, indeed, find our perfect house. I cannot recommend a better agent to help you in your search. She is not just our agent, but a new friend!
Working with Mel was the best decision we could have made for our first home purchase. It was a long journey in a tough market...Mel went the extra mile on our first offer, second offer, third....and all the way through to the last. She has been in the business a long time and has homebuilding experience herself - she pointed out potential concerns for financing, insurance or inspections. She is highly professional but also kind, genuine and compassionate. There was never any pressure, she is just looking to find you the home that will suit you best. Highly recommend! Thank you Mel.
Melanie thank you for your commitment to achieve our objectives in the home search process the last two times. In this highly competitive market your assistance in both these transactions went far beyond our expectations and we are forever grateful.
Thank you Melanie, your knowledge of the local real estate market was invaluable to us in the selection process. Further, in this competitive market your strategy gave us a tremendous advantage that resulted in attaining a successful transaction. We are ever thankful to have worked with you.
Buying a house in this market has been one of the most stressful things I have ever done. Working with Melanie made it a much more manageable, smooth and enjoyable process. Melanie has an abundance of patience and professional insight into the local real estate market. Not only did she find me my dream home but she made sure to breakdown the process and everything I needed to do and know into small informative pieces so that I could better understand the process and knew what was going on at all times, making everything fall into place worry free.
I had the pleasure of working with Melanie to find the perfect home! As a first time home buyer, the purchasing process was surprisingly painless. Melanie took care of everything and kept me informed throughout. Being highly experienced and professional, she's my first choice for the next time I look to buy or sell on the island.
We have worked with Melanie twice now and are stilled wowed by her attentiveness, professionalism and care put into every thing she does! You can absolutely see the passion she has for her clients and wanting to help them find that perfect home. 100% recommend using Melanie for your real estate needs!!! Amazing!!!
The experience of buying a home with Melanie was truly exceptional. Melanie took the time to share the important features of Campbell River. We went on a short local hike, walked to see the fish and chips shops, and to the pier. All of these experiences helped me situate myself and fall in love with the town as well as my new condo. When reviewing the documents she was thorough and professional, taking the initiative to clarify any potential issues that arose from he disclosure regarding the property. I am now happy to call her a friend, and look forward to raising a glass with her once again! Thanks so much Melanie.
Many, many thanks to you, my dear Melanie, for making this a most enjoyable experience from beginning to end. You have a wonderful, cheerful personality. I can never thank you enough for all your hard work and for your kind, cheerful and happy personality. I am very lucky and thankful I found you.
