I enthusiastically recommend Melanie McLaughlin to anyone interested in purchasing or selling a home. Melanie combines all of the important qualities needed to represent a client, She is tactful and diplomatic, but is also aware of what needs to be done, and how to approach difficult moments. She is knowledgeable of the market, the ins and outs of negotiating, of common practices and, through all of it , she is professional, efficient and capable. I felt totally secure in my situation as a seller. She made it work, even in this crazy, difficult market. I am so so so grateful that I found her. You will never be sorry if you contact her and let her work with you. Thank you, Melanie!
I chose Melanie because of her trustworthy demeanor and honesty. My expectations were exceeded to a level that is hard to come by. Melanie is a State of the Art Professional. I met Melanie while she was managing my HOA. I do not trust people right off the bat but I did Melanie and I am so glad I did. If she cannot answer a question I may have she will go to other resources. She has vast knowledge of the industry and strives everyday to make sure she is informed to help her clients. My situation is somewhat sensitive and she handles it with kindness and understanding. I would recommend Melanie to anyone and everyone!!! Awesome Awesome person both personal and professional.
We first came to know Melanie through the Kellogg agency, the firm we use to manage the property that we rent. She immediately went to work for our interests, and continued a professional relationship with us for about six months until the owners of the house that we now occupy terminated their rental agreement with us. Melanie was quite responsive to our developing ideas in what we wanted and provided us with a variety of possible houses that we might purchase. At that time there were not too many available houses on the market in our price range, but she took the time that we needed to carefully view the homes. She did not present a prejudicial view of any of the homes, but when we noted some anomaly in the house, she would make judicious comments from her experience of real estate, I did not sense that she was steering us to any particular house. She not only adeptly guided us through the process of buying the house, she made sure that we knew what was going on and the implications of each step. The process was expedited by the fact that we were paying cash for the home, but I would have to say that it could not have gone smoother. Communication was great. Since we could not move into the house until after July 11, she facilitate a rental agreement by which the former owners could continue to stay in the house for a nominal amount. This was a win-win deal for everyone. Her last act was the final walk-through to make sure the former owners left the house in good condition. We could not be present because of business, but she implemented this final step effectively and we found a house marvelously fit for occupation on our return to Bernalillo.
Melanie has been wonderful to work with. She’s responded to all inquiries quickly & accurately and has consistently provided information proactively. She located several homes that matched our requests (in our price range) and scheduled viewings in a very timely manner. She was super flexible in accomodating our schedules as well. With Melanie’s guidance, we found the perfect home in a very short time and are currently in the purchase process! I’ve already recommended her to several family members and friends who are looking to find a home!
