"Working with Melissa Radowicz to buy our first property in the Monterey area was such a delight from start to finish. We had very specific requirements, and the seller's market with low inventory made it very challenging to find our ideal property. But after much persistence, patience, and teamwork, we found it! Not only was Melissa knowledgeable about each city and neighborhood in the Monterey area, she really understood what we were looking for in our investment property. She also provided many helpful recommendations for local vendors, contractors, and service providers to remodel the property after the purchase. We highly recommend Melissa!"
- Ginger & David, Buyers, Monterey
"Melissa was a huge help with both our selling and buying experiences. We did not know what to expect while going into our latest real estate transactions, but Melissa exceeded all expectations we could have imagined. Not only did Melissa help us sell our property at an amazing price within a week, but she also helped us secure our next home at an amazing price. We could not be any happier! Melissa always kept us informed through every step, and was willing to chat things out so we knew exactly what was going on. She listened to all of our needs and made sure they were taken care of. Melissa has a ton of knowledge when it comes to the Monterey area and it's real estate. She also has a ton of knowledge when it comes to securing a mortgage and moving through escrow. We would not be in our beautiful home today if it weren't for Melissa's help! Thank you Melissa for everything!"

Meet your new realtor, Melissa Radowicz. Seriously, your search is over. Don't overthink it. She is the one. Melissa's immense capabilities as a professional are exceeded only by her tremendous qualities as a human, which she blends to be the best conceivable realtor. Melissa grew up in Monterey County and in the real-estate industry. She understands both from all angles. Nothing surprises her; there is no event for which she is unprepared. There are no "maybe's" or "I guess we could's" or "things have changed." She also understands that selling and buying a home are emotional experiences with lots at stake. She takes care of the head and the heart. My life was a succession of brutal events for more than a decade. I was literally on a 10-year losing streak, and having to sell our family home was just one more loss. I limped into our home sale with limited intellectual and emotional bandwidth. I expressed to Melissa that I wanted our home priced appropriately and I did not want to languish on the market. We zeroed in on a price and went to market. We had a very acceptable offer from a pre-approved buyer within 48 hours. It was amazing. Along the way she handled every challenge and kept the sale on course. Everything went as smoothly as possible and there were no surprises. She dealt with everything objectively and confidently, like a true industry veteran. It was incredibly impressive and I am deeply in her debt. Whether you are buying or selling, you owe it to yourself to at least have a conversation with Melissa. You won't be sorry you did. She is quite simply remarkable at what she does."

"Melissa and the Bambace Peterson team were a tremendous asset when we were selling our old home and buying our new place. They were spot on with their recommendations when we were selling our home—what things to spend our time redoing, and what things wouldn't matter to a prospective buyer. It was our first time selling our home and Melissa made the process a lot less intimidating. And when we went to buy a new place, she went the extra mile to help us find a home that was in our price range in a neighborhood we loved. We're settled in our new place now and are so thrilled with it—Melissa and her team really took the time to get to know us and as a result, we're in a place that suits our personality as a family. As a bonus, she is incredibly knowledgeable about the mortgage lending process, and guided us through all of the paperwork so that it never felt overwhelming. We loved working with Melissa and her team and give her our highest recommendation!
- Erin & Elliot, Sellers & Buyers, Monterey
"Melissa was amazing during my first-time home-buying experience. She made me feel confident and assured throughout the process and found the perfect fit for me. She has incredible knowledge of the area and is well respected in the community which proved to be invaluable for someone who was newer to the area. I would recommend her to anyone and will 100% be working with her again!"
-Leilani K., Buyer. Monterey
"Working with Melissa Radowicz was excellent. The transaction developed some challenges and Melissa was always on top of it with solutions."

"Melissa was an absolute pleasure to have as our agent. She really knows her stuff and made sure we were protected on all fronts. She made the experience as enjoyable as possible and never made us feel pressured. She made herself available at any time of the day and helped us talk through our options. I highly recommend her, we will definitely use her again in the future."
- Nancy W.
"Melissa was absolutely wonderful to work with. This was our first time selling a home and Melissa and her team made it so easy for us. She did a great job in helping us land on a list price and our home sold relatively quickly in a declining market while we kept seeing price decreases all around town. Her team handled all the repairs that were needed, and staged the home beautifully. It couldn't have been a better experience for us and we highly recommend Melissa and her team!"
- Rene P. Seller, Carmel
"Melissa spent time with us to understand what we wanted, made really useful recommendations about what areas we might like, and made the process of purchasing a condo unbelievably easy and delightful. We even had some issues during the buying process with some damage that was discovered after we went under contract — and Melissa guided us through the process and handled some unusual requests from us (we wanted to leave some things un-repaired since we were planning to replace anyway!). Can’t recommend Melissa enough!!"
