My wife and I were first time home buyers and had a lot of trepidation and questions about the process. We were also searching for a home in Tampa from 3000 miles away, with few opportunities to be there in person. It could have been a recipe for disaster.
Instead, we found Melissa, who single handedly made the process easy and even fun for us. We interviewed her and another realtor, and Melissa blew us away with her local knowledge and her willingness to be extremely hands on and available. Especially if you’re thinking about an urban option in downtown or SoHo, it’s hard to imagine any way that you could improve upon Melissa’s expertise.
Every opportunity that Melissa had to take tasks onto herself, and to handle things for us, she did (with our permission). She was very open to, and respectful of, our decision making process and we never felt rushed or bullied. At the same time, she was prompt, even aggressive when we needed her to be. She successfully negotiated a significantly lower price for us on an awesome home.
Finally, she gave priceless recommendations for local bank, title company, inspector, and insurance broker. So she helped us assemble a team of experts who were all great to work with.
We will definitely work with Melissa again when it’s time to sell or buy a home in Tampa in the future!
