I would HIGHLY recommend Melanie Hollingshead to anyone looking for an effective, professional and dedicated realtor to sell or help with the purchase of a home.
My husband and I were interested in purchasing a home but as first time buyers, we really had no idea where to start. We contacted Melanie on a recommendation from a family member and she immediately got us on the right track. She helped us determine our price range, desired location and needs for a home and then sent us daily listings of houses that fit our profile. Viewing houses with Melanie was pleasant and enjoyable. We didn't feel rushed to make a decision on a home, instead we felt like we could take our time to find the right house for our family.
When we did find our house, Melanie also guided us through the loan approval phase, helping us to understand the steps of the process as we went along. She kept in close contact with us and gave us frequent updates as the process moved forward. Melanie even checked in daily while away on vacation just to make sure things were on track. When the approval process slowed down on the lender's end, she used her professional skills to get things moving again.
I can truly say that from the beginning to the very end, Melanie was confident, knowledgable, caring and had such a positive attitude.
She made buying our first home a wonderful experience!
