- Helped me sell a home
Melinda was so helpful with the sale of our house and with the search for a new home. She is an extremely patient person and was always willing to show us any home whether it was in the evening or on a weekend. We weren't the easiest clients but she stuck with us until we were 100% happy. I would recommend Melinda anytime! Thank you Melinda!!
