There are so many points of articulation when purchasing or selling real estate and it can be a stressful, complicated undertaking. Helping them successfully navigate through each step while making it seamless, profitable and enjoyable is my goal. As their REALTOR® for life, I will always be there before, during and long after the transaction has closed.”

Melanie is absolutely wonderful and is beyond a rock star!!! She makes you feel as if you are her only client. She always returns calls, emails, and texts immediately and is always friendly, pleasant and puts you at ease during such a personal and stressful time. She’s a superb communicator, educator, and advisor and has excellent knowledge of the market. She has strong strategic thinking and negotiating skills, exudes professionalism, graciousness, and friendliness and can read and understand peoples’ personalities and relationships. Melanie is such a wonderful person and it shows in everything she does. She made our move from Chicago so much easier. We are very fortunate and grateful to have Melanie as our Realtor and friend.
I’ve worked with Melanie Fenelon for many years, and I’d never change. She truly takes the time to learn about YOU and always (I mean ALWAYS) keeps your interests and needs as the top priority. She is committed to finding the “right” fit for you. It’s not about “will it work?” She talked me out of a few places, as I had a short timeline, but she was right (she knew what I needed, and she kept at it) and she delivered. She has an incredible knowledge of the market and works easily and seamlessly with everyone (even in difficult situations). Have a question? Melanie finds the answer. I could write a small novel about her honesty, patience, abilities, great attitude, enthusiasm, market knowledge, negotiation skills, and persistence. When you work with Melanie, you’re working with a true partner and friend. Melanie is amazing, and I don’t recommend anyone else.
