A friend recommended Melanie to us when we were planning our move to the east side of Cleveland, and we’re so thankful she did. This is the second home we’ve bought (and at the same time, we were selling a house in another state), and Melanie set a new bar for our expectations of a realtor with her expert knowledge of homes in general and the local market in particular, her guidance through the process of selecting a home, making offers and counter-offers, and ultimately buying our home, and her ready help throughout.
First, she took the time to get to know us, and this was very helpful as we worked through the possibilities, and she was also attentive as we looked at houses, refining her understanding of what we were looking for and what we valued.
I would particularly highlight her effectiveness in the negotiation process, where she clearly had at her command an impressive amount of data about the local market (and, more importantly, she has the ability to zero in on the most relevant data) to help us better understand the market and to argue effectively on our behalf as we went back and forth with offers and counter-offers.
If you are looking to buy a house in this area, I can’t recommend Melanie highly enough.
