What Our Clients Are Saying

Our family was introduced to Melissa when we relocated to South Florida a year ago. We were looking for a community, a good school for our teenage son, and great access to the amenities South Florida has to offer. Melissa took great effort to get to know us and find us a home that fulfilled all our needs. She provided recommendations for banks, schools, contractors, termite service, cleaning services. All of which we used with success, and which made the transition as smooth as it could be. We highly recommend Melissa to anyone taking on a relocation to this area. She’s a wealth of knowledge, and a consummate professional.

— The Hitt Family

In 2016, we engaged Melissa to lease a penthouse at Ten Museum Park. For the last four years, she has been successful every year in renting the apartment at a high level. In July 2020, in the middle of the pandemic, she even succeeded in renting it on a 12 month lease at a very favorable rent and because we were unable to travel during the lockdown, she went more than the extra mile by clearing out the apartment of unwanted clothes and furniture leftover by the prior tenants. We cannot recommend Melissa highly enough.

—  Peter Maddock, Manager, Wyatt Real Estates LLC.

I had to sell my home as part of my divorce settlement and Melissa and her team were there with me every step of the way. It was a difficult time however I knew the house was something I wouldn’t have to worry about. Melissa and her team took care of everything seamlessly, marketing and showing the home through negotiating and closing. Not only are they professional, they are supportive of their clients’ objectives. I cannot recommend Melissa and her team highly enough and am so grateful to have worked with them!

—  Regina M

Pavel was an incredible partner in finding our new home. He was always an advocate, very responsive, and never pushy. He supported us in sticking to our budget while at the same time level setting what the likely responses might be. He and his team made everything completely seamless from negotiating, to inspection oversight and closing day logistics. The entire process was turn-key and in the end we found the home that was perfect for our family.

— Drew K

Moving is always a difficult process, and Pavel made things very easy for me. He is a hard worker whose tireless efforts show results. His negotiation skills and experience were great assets. If you need a realtor, Pavel should be your first choice.

— Greg V

We have worked with Melissa in the purchase and sale of several local properties. In every instance, Melissa has proven to be exceedingly organized and tenacious in her advocacy for us, her clients. She manages every aspect of the transactions seamlessly, with no aspect of the process left to chance. She is a most generous person, and her support goes beyond what any client can reasonably expect from a sales agent.
