"Melissa is the absolute best! This was our second time working with her and we cannot imagine having anyone else guide us through the process of selling our home. She did a phenomenal job listing our home and drawing a massive crowd to the open house (shout out to Joel for the gorgeous pictures!). We had 7 offers and got well over asking price. She helped us pick the perfect buyer for our home and navigated us through some frustrating inspection and appraisal moments. Having someone who is completely trustworthy, patient, professional and fun to work with made the stressful moments a lot easier. " -Matt K.
"I don’t even know where to begin. Melissa is... man she is just SO FREAKING GOOD AT HER JOB!!! I just don’t know how to adequately emphasize how impressed my husband and I were with her. We had such a weird list of needs for a home, and we were operating on a tight timeline, and a tight budget. We were so skeptical that we would actually be able to find what we needed, and find it in time, but we did! We found the perfect property for our home, and our business, and I can 100% say that we could NOT have done it without Melissa. She did more work than any realtor I’ve ever known. She was impeccably organized, ridiculously knowledgeable. And she was like a detective, sleuthing out tons of information about every home we considered seeing, or considered making an offer on. She really, really knows what she is doing. And another thing that she brings to the table is her incredible knowledge of a wide swatch of eastern and central Pennsylvania real estate. We were hunting over a huge area, between Philly and Lancaster PA, and we really didn’t understand a lot of the places we were looking. But Melissa did. She knew it all... school districts, resale values, environmental issues, waning or waxing popularity and why, demographics, municipal regulations... her knowledge was staggering. And her research and preparedness... I mean, I know she must have had clients other than us, but it truly felt like she was working for us round the clock, seven days a week. I just can’t say enough. We were referred to Melissa through our loan officer, so we hoped she’d be decent. But we honestly feel like we stumbled upon the best realtor in Pennsylvania, and I’m not being hyperbolic. Just put your trust in her. I am telling you, you will see exactly what I’m talking about after about five minutes of talking to her. "
"We cannot thank Melissa enough for all of the time, patience, diligence, and hard work that she put into our house hunting process. We started our house hunt in a wide area and Melissa helped us zero into the perfect location for our needs. Her knowledge of the Philadelphia area real-estate market can’t be beat and she developed a strategy that ensured we were in the best position to be competitive buyers. Best of all, she makes house hunting fun. This was our third time working with her and we wouldn’t trust anyone else to help us through the home buying process. We can’t recommend Melissa enough and will miss working with her!"
"We can not recommend Melissa Walter more highly. We were warned by friends and family that it’s hard to find a reliable realtor, but Melissa was fantastic. Melissa was highly responsive, thorough and always went above and beyond. We were first time home buyers so we needed a lot of hand holding and were new to the entire process. We also were buying a house in a market with low inventory so it took us several offers before one was accepted, but Melissa continued to show us homes for several months (READ: spent most of her nights and weekends with us) and guided us through until we found the right fit. We have already recommended Melissa to friends and family and will use her again if we ever move. :)" - Rachel & Brad
"Melissa was always available, extremely calm, and professional throughout the entire process. Melissa alerted us to aspects of the houses, both positive and negative that were not immediately apparent to us as buyers. Her overall knowledge, expertise and preparation was very impressive. She has a very upbeat personality that made a stressful process pleasant. I highly recommend her!" - Monica
