"Melissa was a pleasure to work with. No pressure on selling, just showing great options and offering spot-on advice. She was very accessible to us, patient and professional. One of the best real estate brokers I’ve had the pleasure of working with." - John R.

"What can I say about Melissa? I can simply say we couldn't have asked for a more wonderful realtor - but I'll go into more detail than that. My wife and I met Melissa at an Open House for some lofts in Dobbs Ferry that were WAY out of our price range that we never intended on actually purchasing. Despite that, Melissa never judged us or put us aside as two "young people" who weren't worth her time. She was a constant professional and gave us a lot of information for that loft as well as for other places in the area. And as our search became more serious, she remained just as professional. As first time home buyers, we were so afraid of even beginning the process. We knew nothing about how searches work or how to even start looking. But Melissa constantly walked us through it, reassured us, and was our constant ally. She never pressured us - even at times when we knew her opinion might be different from ours - and put our interests and desires at the forefront at all time. She would fight for us, standing up to other realtors for us that we would have been too afraid to confront. And as we had house after house fall through for various reasons, Melissa talked us through it and lent us constant comfort and support. And even though Melissa mainly works in Westchester, when we decided to expand our search to Rockland County, Melissa was quick to jump on board with us, learn an entirely new county, and get us through it. And on the day we closed, Melissa was there to meet us after the signing to congratulate us. I recommend Melissa to anyone and everyone, but I ESPECIALLY recommend her for anyone buying a home for the first time. So many of my friends have lamented their realtors, who tried to push them always, while my wife and I found our realtor to be one of the highlights of our home buying experience. I am so grateful my wife decided it would be "fun" to walk into that million dollar open house that day. Thank you to Melissa and the whole team!" - Mark M.

"I was lucky to connect with Melissa Palley in my search for a transition from a townhouse to condominium apartment. It was the beginning of a journey that she helped me navigate as smoothly as possible in only a few months. Melissa was a pleasure to work with; she was collaborative and provided guidance but never made me feel pressured. She quickly discerned my needs and preferences to alert me to options. When there were delays in the process she encouraged me to stay focused but also got involved to help problem solve. Clearing out and selling my residence of several years at the same time was challenging but Melissa made it feel more manageable and would help with details. She is very organized. Her group has an amazing directory of any service you might need for repairs or moving. I highly recommend her!" - Donna A.

"Buying a house with Melissa was a pleasure. We would visit homes when It was convenient for me, and she would always be available when I needed her. As first time home buyers we had a lot of questions and she was very knowledgeable when answering those questions. We would recommend Melissa to any one who is wanting to purchase a house and wants someone that is going to work for them until the perfect house is found. She would also inform us in information we didn’t even think about asking." - Ivan A.

★★★★★
"I had an incredibly positive experience working with Melissa. She was a great listener and helped clarify my criteria, making it easy to make a decision to buy quickly under time constraints. Thanks to her watchful eye, we had a chance to bid on a house as soon as it came back on the market, and are very happy to call it home now. I highly recommend Melissa and would not hesitate to work with her again!" - Ernesto V.

"If you're like me you've bought and sold a few homes in your lifetime and always wondered what exactly the Realtor did to earn their commission. Well, Melissa and her team have answered that question for me. They met with us, got to know our goals, staged and photographed the house, and made it look better than it ever did. Sold quickly at a price we were happy with. Highly recommend." - James M.

"Working with Melissa to sell our home was a pleasure. She took much of the stress out of the situation. Her staging eye brought out the best attributes of our home, her responsiveness eliminated questions and guessing, and her personal knowledge of the Rivertowns and its buyers helped to sell our home very quickly. Melissa Palley, working alongside Francie Malina did an incredible job." - Irene L.
