"Melissa was an AMAZING realtor in helping me buy my 1st home! As a 1st home buyer, everything felt extremely daunting and stressful- not just because buying a home is a stressful task, but we also dealt with a listing agent from hell (I'm serious- she was AWFUL) and my loan officer was less than subpar which stressed me out on top of everything but if I didn't have Melissa there to jump in and help navigate me through it all and mediate with the loan officer and listing agent, I don't think I would have the home I do today! She really took charge of the whole situation and handled everything with such professionalism. When I needed to test out the washer/dryer in the house, she went out and got me detergent on the spot. If I needed to know where to original flooring and paint came from inside she researched and got the info for me. When the listing agent was giving us grief, she stepped in, calmed everything down and negotiated the absolute top deal for me. She goes above and beyond what duty calls for and I couldn't have been MORE grateful to her for helping me achieve Homeowner Status! THANK YOU MELISSA!!" - Nikki Lietzke
