We had seen Melinda’s name on listings in the neighborhood. When it came time to list our home, we turned to someone in the business for a recommendation. Low and behold, Melinda was introduced to us. Not only did she come highly recommended but then she proceeded to surpass all expectations. Working with Melinda was a great experience.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
We listed our South End condo with Melinda and could not have been happier with her dedication and, of course, the eventual outcome. Although we had previous experience with another Realtor®, Melinda's enthusiasm and dedication won us over.

We used Melinda to sell our place in Back Bay two years ago. I absolutely loved her. Two sets of friends recommended her. And then she ran into my husband and a group of guys one night and two of those guys had also used her as their real estate agent. She staged our condo when I saw the pictures on the web I didn't want to move. I liked what she did with some of the stuff in my son's nursery so much tha...

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
This past fall Melinda sold our condo. We had many real estate agents who asked us to list with them when people found out we were moving.

Melinda is always available for her clients. We were able to hav...
