Melanie helped our family find a short term rental when we were really in a pinch. She was able to find something that worked perfectly for us even though inventory was very low and she did so within 48 hours. She was extremely communicative and always available. She was even texting and emailing with us off-business hours and throughout the weekend. On top of doing an amazing job finding us a rental she was able to arrange for a same week move-in and ensured that all of the paperwork and payments went smoothly. Melanie was truly a lifesaver for our family.

Melanie did a great job helping me find a new home. She was always available to answer my questions and found the perfect condo for me and my Rottie!
Highly recommend.

Melanie helped us find a condo by the ocean. It wasn't an easy task! It took several months and careful review of many options. Melanie was very professional all along, knowledgeable, incredibly patient and understanding. She made herself available even in short notice, organized showings very quickly (e.g. next day), always showed up early and had things ready for us to come into buildings. She kept communication flowing consistently, got our questions answered, etc. We were able to do any kind of paperwork electronically, which is something I very much appreciate. As with every industry, realtors that have not entered the digital era stay behind... not the case here.
Through Melanie, we were able to get recommendations on other services too.
I would more than definitely work with Melanie in the future and I highly recommend her.

Melanie is definitely a 5 star rating as my realtor! Melanie went above and beyond my expectations to assist me with my home purchase. Her FaceTime tour of the property I purchased was the clincher for me. To trust my realtor in purchasing a property with just a FaceTime tour speaks volumes of her professionalism. Thank you Melanie. I will always recommend you to anyone looking to purchase real estate.

I cannot recommend Melanie enough. I saw many properties and Melanie was always patient with me and helpful with ideas and suggestions. As I changed my mind a couple of times as to what I was looking for, Melanie adjusted with me and continued to show me properties that matched my criteria.I have found a condo in Fort Lauderdale that I absolutely LOVE! Couldn't be happier.

Melanie was very professional and got the job done quickly. She worked every day until we were in a home that we could work with. She is wonderful I would recommend her to anyone. I have given her card out to several people so far.
