I met Melinda through a friend when I was ready to purchase my first home. And it was nothing short of kismet. I am so appreciative! She made the process a breeze. She's a true professional - warm, efficient, and doesn't miss a beat. One of the best. And I love my home!

We worked with Melinda on the sale of our Boston condo and I highly recommend her. We lived in NYC at the time and needed someone that we could trust with every detail since we were no longer local and Melinda delivered.

I am a real estate broker licensed in New York City and Connecticut who can highly recommend Melinda Davala Sarkis of Coldwell Banker.

Melinda was fantastic to work with during the sale of our condo. From first meeting to post closing she has been very helpful, informative, professional and fun to work with.

Moving during a pandemic, especially across the country seemed ove...

Melinda helped us buy and sell our condo - both of which happened on a short time frame! She is TOP NOTCH and by far the premier agent you want to go in Boston. She is incredibly knowledgeable, resourceful, and is keenly aware of both her client's needs and the realities of the market. Melinda was incredibly professional and got us exactly what we needed and wanted!
