"Mel went to great lengths to understand her client’s wants and needs. She was patient in waiting to present the right property to us and didn’t just spam us with every property that loosely fit our criteria. Mel is an excellent negotiator. She made sure our interests and rights were upheld. I can honestly say that without her, our transaction may not have crossed the finish line."

"Melanie is professional. She works hard to minimize the hassle of what can be a very stressful event - selling your home. She got our place sold without us needing to stage it. It was as low-key as it could have been. During the selling process she was on top of everything, to make sure the sale went smoothly."

"Melanie was simply incredible to work with, in every way possible. She was knowledgeable, responsive, creative and most of all, very easy to get along with. I had always thought that residential real estate brokers were unnecessarily middlemen in an otherwise simple transaction, but Melanie changed  my mind about that - some brokers really can add a LOT of value!"

"Melanie worked with us for over 8 months to find our perfect home. While we may have been discouraged, Melanie was not! She knew that with a little patience and a smart strategy, we would eventually make the offer that just could not be refused. In the end, we bought the best house of any that we saw and could not be happier with the outcome. Melanie was just great and we are so appreciative of her hard work and patience with us!"

"Melanie was incredibly professional - knowledgable about every aspect and made our buying process perfectly seamless. She fielded every question and concern we had with immediate and thorough response. She not only assisted us in finding our perfect home, but then made stellar recommendations for lawyer, contractor, decorator, cleaning service, etc. She went above and beyond! I would highly recommend her to any one of my friends."

"Melanie is professional, responsive and could not have been a better representative for me as a buyer. Her knowledge of the South End and willingness to go above and beyond for clients sets a high bar. We look forward to using her again and strongly recommend her services to both buyers and sellers in the Boston area."

"As first time buyers, we had a lot of questions and hesitations. Mel was patient and thorough in addressing all of our needs. Her knowledge of the real estate market and local neighborhoods were critical to our search. And, Mel outlined the steps and typical timeline for the buying process so wethere were no surprises when we finally made an offer. We were happy to have her by our side for the bidding, inspection, and closing milestones. We felt that she strongly advocated on our behalf, where necessary. I would highly recommend Mel to anyone looking to buy in the Boston area. We look forward to working with her again in the future."

"I worked with Melanie to purchase my condo in the South End. I couldn't have been happier with her and the result. We looked at a number of condos before I knew what I wanted - which she encouraged me to do. She never made me feel guilty about wasting her time and was very patient. She ultimatelygot me into this and several other condos pre- open house. Because the process she recommended I was ready to roll and knew I wanted it when I saw it. She helped me through the negotiation and inspection, and got a wonderful condo for a great price. I highly recommend Melanie to anyone!"

"Melanie is a ferocious advocate for her clients who always puts their best interests first. We have used Melanie to buy two homes and sell one. Every time we have worked with her we have been impressed by her professionalism and knowledge of the field. She is deeply ingrained in the Boston realestate market as she both lives in Boston and has years of experience buying and selling homes there. She brings this deep expertise to the table for her clients. She is also reasonable and doesn't get side tracked by the millions distractions that can derail a deal. If the buy/sell is in the best interest of her clients, she will make sure it happens. In addition to her professionalism and tenacity, she is also highly personable and a pleasure to work with."

"Melanie sold a South End condo for us, and then helped us find and purchase our new home. She was wonderful to work with. She is smart, trustworthy, and willing to help her clients in whatever way she can. She has an unparalleled knowledge of the South End market, and goes above and beyond tomake her clients happy. We have been in our new condo for 4 months, and couldn't be happier."

"Melanie is awesome across the board. She understands the market, is never pushy with her clients, but can be tenacious and resourceful during negotiations when she has to be. Most importantly though, she has a great personality and is fun to work with. We used Melanie for 3 transactions (bothbuying and selling)."

"Melanie made an exciting , but stressful time, seamless and fun. She was a trusted leader of me and my husband during one of our biggest financial investments. Melanie was patient and supportive as my husband and I reviewed multiple offers on the home we were selling. She worked quickly andconfidently with the other agents to ensure we had the best possible offers on the table. In the end, as a result of Melanie's expertise we accepted an offer that provided value well beyond the financial component (e.g., no inspection, no mortgage contingency). I would use Melanie any time I am buying/selling a property. There is a reason she was named one of Boston's top 20 agents."

"Mel has a vast network and was able to generate significant interest in our home via her marketing efforts. She was also able to secure multiple offers and negotiate a final sale price above and beyond our 'asking'. If you're looking to buy or sell in the South End, metro Boston, or greaterBoston area, we highly recommend meeting with Mel!"

"Melanie recently completed the listing and sale of my home in downtown Boston. She was extraordinary in execution and preparedness and helped coordinate numerous tradesman, quotes and specialists following the initial inspection. I am confident that in lesser hands, my apartment would not havebeen sold. Melanie wants her clients to be genuinely happy with their experience - we were."

"Melanie worked with me and my husband to purchase our first home in the South End just over two years ago, and we love our home more today than we did the day of purchase. I was very nervous about the entire process, but Melanie made sure to explain each step and was very knowledgeable about themultiple neighborhoods we liked. We searched Southie, Bay Village, the Back Bay, and the South End - Melanie knew the ins and outs of each area. I have two friends that also used Melanie upon our recommendation, and they are each very happy in their new homes."

"Melanie was fantastic to work with during our home buying process. She really took the time to understand what it was we wanted in a home. We looked at TONS of places. She ended up showing us a house we never would have found on our own (it was in a different town than we were targeting) and wefell in love with it! We've been here three years and love it. When we look to buy our next home, Melanie will be our first call!"

"We hired Melanie after we had found the apartment we wanted to buy. We had first thought we could do it ourselves, but quickly realized it would be well worth our money to have someone with experience working with us. The building we were buying in had recently been redeveloped and we had a lot towork out with the developer. Melanie, having just had her first son, showed up on time at every appointment and negotiated every last detail for us. She was frank, professional, and worked to get us what we wanted. She made the process extremely easy for us to understand and guided us through each step. She is smart, on top of her game, and efficient. We enjoyed working with her and highly recommend her to everyone we know."

"In the past four years Melanie has helped us buy our first condo in Boston, sell that condo, and then purchase our new home in the suburbs. With all three transactions she was professional, knowledgable, and attentive. She was extremely proactive with the sale of our condo, and sold it quickly in a difficult market. Melanie was very patient with our most recent home purchase, as we were uncertain what town was right for us and searched in several different areas before finding our new home. I was nervous about having two closings on the same day, but Melanie assured me it would go smoothly, and she made sure it did. I would highly recommend her to anyone!"
