"Melanie made a stressful experience smooth and enjoyable, despite a historically strong seller’s market! She was always there when we needed advice, expertise, and a sympathetic ear. She was great at reminding us of our true priorities when we were tempted to settle for something less than, and negotiated a great deal for us on our first home!" - Jenna and Danny

★★★★★
"Melanie has been an incredible realtor for my house search. She was very responsive, took the time to understand my needs and treated me like I was her only client. She also has an amazing knowledge of the DMV! Would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a home." - Brittney

★★★★★
"Melanie Clark is the most skilled, professional, and reliable real estate agent that my husband and I have ever worked with. Melanie helped us buy and sell a house in the middle of the pandemic, always keeping an eye out for the health and wellbeing of our family, including our newborn son. Her excellent advice gave us a competitive advantage; we sold our house in under a week for well over the asking price.
Buying a house during the pandemic was quite a challenge. It was a difficult market and we looked at many a house before settling on our dream home. Melanie consistently made herself available to us and patiently guided us through this difficult process. We are so happy to have worked with her. We would highly recommend Melanie to any future homebuyers or sellers. Thank you, Melanie!! "

"Melanie is professional, friendly and gives good advice on purchasing a home. As a first time home buyer, I had a lot of questions about the process, and she responded to all of my questions and referred me to good resources and people for things like home inspection and title companies. Melanie will help you find the right place that fits your lifestyle and budget, and will champion for you. I'm happy to recommend her to everyone! " - Kelly

★★★★★
"Melanie is amazing. Seriously, my wife and I were very nervous when we started our process and Melanie not only walked us through every step, she let us go at our own pace and never pushed us to move faster than we were comfortable with. She helped us ask the right questions and worked with us to help us find the house of our dreams...so much so that we found it in about a month and a half. We have and will suggest working with Melanie to everyone...even you reading this! So if you are thinking about buying or selling your home. Work With Melanie! " - Lee and Megan

"Melanie is the best of the best. She's reliable, she's quick and she's the person you want in your corner when buying a home. As a real estate professional and as a person, she's an absolute ROCKSTAR. I cannot sing her praises enough. I was overwhelmed with everything involved when it comes to buying a home and Melanie made it simple to understand and went to bat for us. She's accessible and kind and goes above and beyond. Melanie is legitimately the best at what she does. I wish I could give her 10/5 stars because she's that good. Every person who wants to buy a home should be lucky enough to have a Melanie Clark on their team." - Jill

★★★★★
"Our first home buying experience with Melanie was awesome every step of the way. She took time to explain every nuance of the process, helping to make each step clear and understandable, not to mention being extremely communicative and responsive. She was an advocate for us as buyers at each and every turn. I would highly recommend her for first time and seasoned buyers/sellers alike! Thank you, Melanie!" - Peter and Ayesha

★★★★★
"Could not have been happier with Melanie! She was so easy to talk to, knowledgeable and organized. She's also unafraid to say she doesn't know the answer to something instead of making something up--she does her research and gets back to you. Additionally, every service recommendation she provided was spot on. She made the buying process as smooth and informative as possible." - Amber

★★★★★
"Melanie Clark is simply the best and I want to shout from the mountaintops that anyone looking to buy needs to enlist her to head your team!
As first time home buyers, my wife and I came into the process quite overwhelmed and immediately found a steady guide, a creative thinker, and a tenacious partner in Melanie. Not to mention, she is a delightful, caring person with a fabulous sense of humor. My wife and I were actually a little sad to sign on our house because it meant Melanie wasn’t obligated to talk to us every day!
Each step of the way and every pivot we made, Melanie was right there with us - offering ideas, support, assurance, and lots of laughter. We originally thought we wanted to buy in a specific, highly competitive neighborhood and Melanie was game to tackle that challenge. When we decided to broaden our search, she was right there at a moment’s notice to tour us around to houses in a bunch of different neighborhoods she recommended because they offered similar qualities to the one we had originally targeted. And boy did she get it right - Melanie is such a great listener and knows her stuff! When we found our dream home in one of the neighborhoods Melanie suggested, she hopped to and we submitted within hours of viewing, putting us first in line and winning us the contract.
Once under contract, Melanie deftly guided us through all of the inspections, financial timelines, and worries about closing. And when we hit a snag with the sellers a few days before close, she took the time to talk us through all of our options to come to the best solution (and made sure I didn't react in a knee-jerk way). Another fantastic quality: Mel
anie is a protector and trust me when I say that you want her on your side. We are now several months into living in our dream home and I can confidently say that Melanie may be the single best thing that 2020 gave us. It was her thoughtful, conscientious work that found our home and her perseverance plus can-do attitude that secured our home. We are eternally grateful. We’ve already referred Melanie to several friends who have also had phenomenal experiences.
So if you are in need of a real estate agent: hire Melanie. It will be the single best thing you can do for your home search.."

"Melanie helped my wife and I to purchase a home in Southwest DC, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or to sell real estate in the area. She is knowledgeable, attentive, hardworking, and easy to work with." - Andrew

★★★★★
"Melanie is a fantastic real estate agent. She cares deeply about her client's interests, is a pleasure to work with, and is very responsive. She helped us buy a home, which involved difficult sellers and a number of complications, which she expertly navigated. I highly recommend her." - Colin

★★★★★
"Melanie was thorough, creative, conscientious from beginning to end the sale of my condo. Her recommendations, skills and contacts are especially fantastic- I totally credit her efforts for the sale of my condo just one day after ! She took excellent care of everything and she’s a joy to work with - highly recommended." - Kate

★★★★★
"Melanie is the best! Very attentive, personable professional. She's well versed in the ins outs of looking at real estate in the DC/VA/MD and if she isn't sure of an answer, is resourceful at getting it. She is the right amount of encouraging/supportive but never over eager and will work hard to help you make the right decision. She is quick to respond, even in off hours when you think you found your dream at 10pm on a Sunday night. She made the process of buying a lot less scary." - Danielle

★★★★★
"Melanie is awesome! We always felt like she was straightforward with us, easy to communicate with, and quick to reply to any concerns. She was recommended to us by a couple of friends, and we have already recommended her to other friends." - Peter and Jenny

★★★★★
"Simply put, Melanie is the absolute best. I recently had the pleasure of working with her selling my home and she made the process feel easier and run much more smoothly than it should have given the amount of stress moving is! Melanie has a calm and focused demeanor, which is exactly what is needed for success going through this process. She knew when to talk me down off the ledge when I was getting overwhelmed and stressed, and if she was ever having those same feelings, you'd never know it because she has a gift of being cool as a cucumber for her clients. When it comes to real estate agents, Melanie has the heart and the soul to make it feel like you're going through the selling/buying process with a true friend and confidant; she was always available to answer my silly and oftentimes, panicked questions. I felt more at ease after each interaction with her, and that isn't always the case! I so enjoyed getting to know Melanie during my selling process, and I consider her a friend now that I look forward to keeping in touch with. If I could give her 10 stars, I would!!!" - Joe

"If you're looking at reviews for a real estate agent, you're already in a tough place. But I've got good news for you, you've found your real estate agent in Melanie Clark. Are you scared shirtless of the intense home buying process? Melanie will guide you through with ease and clarity. Have you already fired your agent because they're a money-grubbing trust fund bro who wears loafers without socks and hasn't listened to your financial requirements? No worries, Melanie is all about finding the right house for you at the right price. She LISTENS. Like, actually listens. Which is a rare enough quality in an agent that she should be immortalized in bronze in Malibu, or wherever the hell the Real Estate Agent Hall of Fame is. She has such an intense knowledge of the DC area market, you'd think that she had some kind of druidic connection with the land itself, which speaks its truths to her in whispered omens that she interprets for our mortal ears. I bought a house with her, and I didn't hesitate to sign up with her for selling. My house sold in FIVE DAYS. Melanie made one of the most trying decisions a person can make way easier with her knowledge and poise. No greed, no pressure tactics, no overpowering cologne or pulling up half an hour late in his dad's Maserati. Melanie is good people. Choose Melanie." - Alan

Melanie is an AMAZING realtor and person! My husband and I thought it would be a good idea to search for a home during COVID-19 (whoops), but Melanie not only made the process easy, she was on top of COVID-19 related policies and how they pertained to buyers AS THEY WERE ROLLING OUT! Even aside from COVID, there's SO MUCH INFORMATION when it comes to home buying, and she's great at explaining everything clearly and concisely every step of the way (a godsend for first time homebuyers like ourselves). She is a true rockstar, and we've already recommended her to many of our friends. Do not hesitate to have Melanie as your realtor. Because of her, we're moving to our dream house on Friday! - Carolyn
