The Zajac Family

We are so grateful to Melissa for her guidance in helping us optimize two transactions, including new construction, in a volatile market. She is not only an expert of all aspects of the buying and selling process, but she is also extremely thoughtful, committed, and trustworthy. As we prepared to list our home, Melissa helped us optimize our space and prioritize small tweaks and updates to drive the most return. She provided customized silent-talker cards to highlight noteworthy features throughout our home, which made for a consistent and elevated experience for private showings. After we listed our home, we left town, knowing she and her team would check in on our home daily and take care of it as if it were their own.

Amidst the challenging housing market and rising interest rates, Melissa helped us negotiate strong terms on both transactions. And despite closing on our first home, and waiting for our new construction to finish, Melissa has continued to treat us as a priority. She and her team have been available to take us on construction check-ins and she has continued to provide invaluable advice throughout the process.

The Garber Family

When we decided to sell our home we interviewed a couple of agents. Melissa and her lovely family used to live next door to us, she knows neighborhood very well and we decided to talk to her as well. She gave us lot of insightful information and many suggestions on preparing our home for sale. We were skeptical about some of her advice, but decided to follow through. Everything worked out exactly as was planned. Melissa and her team helped us with removing some of the furniture and even found people that needed it. The sale process was quick and straight forward.

After a weekend of open house, we had two very strong offers, both above asking. Melissa's team was very organized and closing went smoothly at the time and place that was convenient for us. Melissa did an excellent job and we highly recommend her as seller's agent.

Aishu & Neeraj

Melissa Waller sold our house in Pine Lake, Sammamish. One of the hardest working people in the business. Melissa and her team treat you like family, and work as hard as they can for you. She was extremely responsive and very pro-active on communicating with us. She left us with a list of tasks to focus upon and prepare our home to show. This is where Melissa's connections started to add value.

She was extremely responsive and very pro-active on communicating with us. She left us with a list of tasks to focus upon and prepare our home to show. This is where Melissa's connections started to add value. She brought in a stager to help us highlight the beauty of our home. And with our staging plan in place, she assisted in prepping the house for market. In addition, she knew how to market our home. The pictures on our listing made us almost regret selling the place! It blew us away when Melissa called just five days after hitting the market with a great offer on our house. We accepted the offer and Melissa was there to advise us every step of the way all the way up to closing. We put our trust in Melissa and it paid off. If you are going to sell or buy a house I highly recommend you go with Melissa and the Compass Real Estate Team. Good luck!

The Bourdeaux Family

Watching Melissa work over the past few weeks has been awe-inspiring. Melissa knows the market in the PNW in such an intuitive way, and she has a plethora of connections that helped us through every step of the process. Her warm, inviting persona made us like her from the start. However, it was the way she explained how she planned to prep our home for the market that won us over.

Her warm, inviting persona made us like her from the start. However, it was the way she explained how she planned to prep our home for the market that won us over. She helped us find the best time to sell, understand the changing landscape of fluctuating interest rates, and showcase our home in a way that allowed us to maximize profit. She staged our house (and coordinated EVERYTHING related to that) and helped us get a plethora of outstanding offers. The way she navigated our offers demonstrates her deep knowledge of the process, compassion for the people involved in the process, and savvy negotiation tactics. She helped us negotiate excellent terms all around, and in the end, we closed with a SIGNIFICANT amount over our list price. Melissa was always available when we needed her, and we are so thankful we chose her to sell our home. Melissa is genuinely one-of-a-kind awesomeness!

The Bradwin Family

We've been friends with Melissa for many years and watched her career flourish since she 'moved' into real estate. When we decided to sell our home, there was no question who would get us the best offer - Melissa has truly found her calling and is proficient and skilled at EVERY aspect of the process. She's built a great network of loyal contractors that enabled us to stage and list our home within 5 days...

She's built a great network of loyal contractors that enabled us to stage and list our home within 5 days!! Melissa educated us on what to expect, how to prepare the house for best showing, what dependencies we could proactively address, and ensured that we were informed and comfortable with each step. After we received multiple offers that were significantly over our asking price, Melissa negotiated a smooth closing and amicable terms for everyone involved! Thank you Melissa for your project management skills, attention to detail, sense of urgency (with a contingent purchase on the line), and passion for perfection. It was a pleasure to work with you and we wouldn't hesitate to choose you again and refer you to all of our current and future friends!

Tracy S.

Melissa was both elegant and confident every step of the way. She sold my Squak Mountain home in Isaaquah for me at about 500% over what I paid for it. She was knowledgeable about the process every step of the way and had multiple professional and/or reasonably priced people to support the process. Melissa was thorough, warm, intelligent…pretty much everything you would want in someone helping you to sell your house...

She was also respectful of me and what I felt about the home I’d lived in for over 20 years. You can’t go wrong with Melissa, if what you are after is good taste and results with a quick sale and a great price for your home.

A shout out to Melissa Waller who was my agent for selling my Klahanie house: Your easy, friendly demeanor mixed with your ability to completely take care of business while relieving the stress that comes with selling a home (her concierge service for contractors and scheduling inspection/repairs was such a weight off my shoulders!) and still being an adorable, hands on mom was inspiring…

Can’t say enough about how her communication was on point… Reminders and all. Melissa truly gets the process.

Eric and Ashley

"We reached out to Melissa a few weeks before we wanted to put our house on the market. Melissa did a great job helping us get the house ready, hosting open houses, and highlighting the unique benefits of our home which resulted in several offers over list after the first weekend on the market and closing at $75k over list! She is a skilled negotiator and not only made sure we got a great price but also terms that helped the deal go through smoothly. She was super responsive to all of our questions in the process. Highly recommended!"

We used Melissa to purchase our 2nd house and we can't say enough good things about her. She helped us get the winning offer on a house with multiple bids and the house even appraised for a significant amount above our offer! Her communication skills are amazing- she was so good about answering our questions quickly and without hesitation. Her level of customer service is hard to find...

Lindsey

Melissa was so helpful during our search and home purchase process! She was extremely patient with us during weeks of searching for a home that met all of our "needs" and most of our "wants." There were multiple offers on the home that we now own and she helped to ensure that our bid was successful. She also secured a repair credit for us in a very competitive market! She was available, responsive, easy to talk to, realistic and happy to reach out to anyone who she thought could be helpful...

She was available, responsive, easy to talk to, realistic and happy to reach out to anyone who she thought could be helpful. We were unhappy with our initial lender and she came through with someone able to complete our financing on terms better than we'd originally been offered in an amazingly short time frame! We had an extremely tight closing deadline and at the last minute didn't appraise at purchase price due to a missing handrail. Melissa obtained a contractor on the weekend (next day) to come in and install one, and had the home re-appraised in time to meet our closing deadline (all while we were out of town)!

Jana

Melissa differed drastically from former agents I have worked with in that she went the extra mile to knock on doors to market and spread the word for my home sale, hired cleaning crews, landscaping and staging amongst others to help my home really shine, and even reached out to qualified agents in other states to help me buy my next home! I would recommend her as I feel she is a real asset!

Melissa has been helping me while I am in the process of buying my first home. She is so patient with all of my questions.

I can relax and enjoy this experience knowing she is looking out for my best interest.

Ross L. 

Melissa is a fantastic agent for both buying and selling. As a buyer, this market moves very fast and Melissa was several steps ahead the whole time, which allowed us to buy our dream home with 6 other competitive offers and we won even with another offer coming in higher than ours. This was completely due to Melissa's meticulous work both with us, the buyers, and her work with the seller's agent...

This was completely due to Melissa's meticulous work both with us, the buyers, and her work with the seller's agent. After buying our home, we then needed to turn around and sell our current home. Once again, Melissa helped through the whole process with preparing our house and listing it with great marketing. We were able to receive multiple offers in less than a week. We accepted a full list price offer after 5 days. On top of how great Melissa was with all of the technical aspects, she is just a great person to work with through the whole process.

The Yourk Family

From the numerous phone calls and texts, to email exchanges, Melissa was on top of everything from the beginning and always made time for us...

When we walked away from the first house we were trying to purchase, she continued to put forth effort to help us find a great alternative that met all of our criteria. Once we found the house we really wanted, she provided great advice that helped us close the deal and purchase the house we wanted. We couldn't be happier for how smooth the negotiations, process, and paperwork went!

Tim and Lauren

Melissa is an amazing real estate agent. We met with a few agents before deciding to work with Melissa, but deciding on her was easy – she clearly stood out because of her genuine interest in our family and what would make us happy, and her drive and determination to help us find our dream home. Through the entire process she delivered beyond our expectations. Melissa went above and beyond by sending letters to numerous home owners that might be open to selling.

She found and arranged multiple off-market showings and was amazingly helpful with understanding the considerations for an off-market home, which was new to us. When we finally found our new home, she again helped make us feel at ease while writing a strong offer that helped us get the home we wanted at a price we liked. We will definitely work with her again in the future.

Not only does she hustle, but her sincerity in wanting the best for my family was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced...

Her support and devotion to my family didn’t stop after closing. Melissa lends her knowledge and expertise in all facets of the industry anytime you need it. If you want the best possible outcome for buying or selling a home, you absolutely need to have Melissa Waller on your side. I’m lucky to have had her as my agent, and now as my friend.

Melissa is exactly what you need in this crazy market. Someone who works tirelessly, knows the market, and knows all the ins and outs of the technical stuff to help you get the info you need to make decisions. She always had our backs and without her we wouldn't have been able to buy and sell and be so satisfied even in this crazy market.

Ron and Sue

I listed with Mellissa and within 20 hours I was under contract. The offer was significantly over listing price. I was willing to accept and move on but Melissa suggested we counter as we were about to go into the weekend and the listing was brand new. They not only accepted the counter but increased the offer beyond our counter. I could not be happier with Melissa and her team. We did everything remotely as we live in California. Definitely a five star team!

Razbir and Aarti

Melissa is amazing to work with! We started our search last year but our search area was very restricted as we didn’t want to move out of Klahanie. There was even a time when we were thinking to stop the search due to the nature of the market but she kept her focus on our requirements and was able to find us an off-market house in a very nice neighborhood...

Laurie Ann and Dave

We highly recommend Melissa Waller! With Melissa's help, we went to market in less than 2 weeks. She managed the contractors she found to make repairs to our home. Our house at the time was the highest selling home in Klahanie's history selling at 23% OVER asking! In regards to her negotiating, she comes to bat for her clients. She knows the market so well.

The process was seamless and her attention to detail is impeccable! We appreciate her so much, she will be listing another one of our properties in the area soon!

After buying and selling several houses over my life, I found Melissa Waller to be the most skilled realtor I’ve ever worked with. She hired a company to stage the house, employed a brilliant photographer, and guided me through a pre-inspection in preparation for the sale. My house never looked so good. It went on the market on a Thursday morning and sold by Sunday afternoon...

She is professional, organized, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. I will be looking for a new home and there is no question what realtor I will hire to represent me - Melissa Waller. I highly recommend you hire her too!

Devin

Melissa sold our Fall City home in August of 2022. We were up against rising interest rates and the transition from a seller’s to a buyer’s market. Melissa did an excellent job marketing our home. She was always communicative, friendly, and professional. We got an offer and she negotiated it up to a great price in a changing market, all while helping to manage our stress along the way!

I would not hesitate to recommend Melissa to a friend or use her again in the future. Thanks Melissa!

Melissa is perfection when it comes to a real estate agent. Aside from knowledge and expertise in her field, she is also kind and compassionate and will fight to the bitter end for her clients every need. She will fully ensure that every minute detail is taken care of and the end deal is in your favor. I cannot recommend her enough. If you are buying or selling a home, she’s the one!

I recently worked with Melissa on the sale of my how in the Klahanie Community in Sammamish. She is the utmost professional. From early discussions on listing and property prep, to staging for show, to all of the details of selling through to close, Melissa brought expert knowledge, attentions to detail, and a professional approach with excellent follow through. She guided me through the process, provided references to services that I needed to prep and move, and negotiated a substantial amount over list for the sale.

She was there every step of the way, and was extremely responsive with all of our questions. Melissa shows a high level of professionalism and knowledge of the market, and she guided us on the best repairs and updates to make in order to maximize our dollars.

We were thoroughly impressed with her negotiation skills, as we received an excellent offer despite some uncertainty in the market. Not only was she the one to get us the most money possible, but she was also so personable, accessible and just a delight to work with. During the process, she also helped our daughter purchase her first home in Seattle, negotiating the sale for under list price. We highly recommend Melissa Waller for all of your Real Estate needs!

I highly recommend working with Melissa on your real estate needs. We had to sell our home on fairly short notice due to a move overseas. We interviewed a few agents and chose Melissa as she was highly recommended by a trusted friend. We did not go wrong. Melissa gave us excellent advise on preparing for the sale and staging. Given the short notice of our move, our timing kept changing and she was always on the ball...

Now I know the market is hot, but we had 20 appointments within 6 hours of listing. Moreover, we got an early offer that was significantly over list. Melissa's insights and guidance were extremely helpful as we evaluated that offer against waiting for the offer review day. We followed her advice and were extremely happy with the results. Can't recommend her enough!

In preparation for the overwhelming job of putting our home of over thirty years on the market, we interviewed four very capable real estate agents. Melissa stood out among them for many reasons. Upon our first meeting with Melissa, we found her to be genuine, personable and the most knowledgeable of the neighborhood and its market trends. It was clear that she was highly motivated to sell out home for top dollar. Her integrity was further confirmed by very high compliments we received from a fellow colleague. We also appreciated that she lived in the community and only a five minute drive away should we need anything. Her patience with our many questions was never ending! Melissa did a fabulous job of getting our home in the best possible presentation for market. She made excellent suggestions (without going overboard!) and provided great resources to carry out minor jobs and repairs that ensured a successful listing. Choosing Melissa as our agent resulted in selling our home quickly, negotiating excellent terms and selling for a significant amount over the list price! We are extremely appreciative for Melissa’s professionalism and highly recommend her services without reservations!

The Yourk Family

Melissa was incredible throughout our entire process of purchasing a house as first time homebuyers. She ensured we understood what to expect, and was always very responsive. From the numerous phone calls and texts, to email exchanges, Melissa was on top of everything from the beginning and always made time for us...

Melissa was incredible throughout our entire process of purchasing a house as first time homebuyers. She ensured we understood what to expect, and was always very responsive. From the numerous phone calls and texts, to email exchanges, Melissa was on top of everything from the beginning and always made time for us! When we walked away from the first house we were trying to purchase, she continued to put forth effort to help us find a great alternative that met all of our criteria. Once we found the house we really wanted, she provided great advice that helped us close the deal and purchase the house we wanted. We couldn't be happier for how smooth the negotiations, process, and paperwork went!

The Guzelimian Family

We were thoroughly delighted and impressed with Melissa Waller from before we even met her. We chose her to sell our house because of her great marketing strategy. From our first meeting right through until after our home sale was recorded her ambitious, vibrant personality met us with enthusiasm and determination every single time...

From our first meeting right through until after our home sale was recorded her ambitious, vibrant personality met us with enthusiasm and determination every single time.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Melissa and her whole team. We had very few questions because they covered everything from before market prep with excellent staging ideas, home photographs, brochures, excellent negotiating skills to get us a great price significantly over the asking price to completion and signing documents.

Melissa was there every step of the way and made the whole selling process seem easy.

We would very highly and enthusiastically recommend Melissa Waller.

Ashley and Eric

We reached out to Melissa a few weeks before we wanted to put our house on the market. Melissa did a great job helping us get the house ready, hosting open houses, and highlighting the unique benefits of our home which resulted in several offers over list after the first weekend on the market and closing at $75k over list!

The Pileggi Family

Melissa worked tirelessly with us over the last six months to help us find, secure, and close on our dream home. She put in the time and effort to send letters, knock on doors, and scour the listing services for just the right fit. Very few agents would go to those lengths these days! With an on-market opportunity, she had a pre-inspection and contractor meeting lined up for us at the home within 24 hours to help us quickly assess the opportunity and be prepared to submit a strong offer...

She put in the time and effort to send letters, knock on doors, and scour the listing services for just the right fit. Very few agents would go to those lengths these days! With an on-market opportunity, she had a pre-inspection and contractor meeting lined up for us at the home within 24 hours to help us quickly assess the opportunity and be prepared to submit a strong offer. While we ultimately chose not to pursue that house, both the inspector and the contractor stayed committed to helping us on an off-market opportunity based on their relationship with Melissa. She, of course, stayed committed to seeing our purchase through, as well, and handled the contract negotiations and execution perfectly. Her impeccable attention to detail even caught a $9,000 error the title company made! Melissa is dedicated to every client, readily available via email, phone, or text, and she is just an all-around nice person you enjoy spending time with. Yes, there are plenty of online resources out there to get real estate information, but you need to hire Melissa Waller to really get what you want for one of the largest purchases you and your family will ever make.

Carolynn and Peter

Melissa is very responsive and was a real trooper as we took her all over Seattle and the Eastside to view possible homes. Melissa and her partner searched for off-market homes for us to see in addition to regular listings, when we were in a jam to find a new home. They were also great when it came time to negotiate - they got more than we asked for. On top of it all, she's very easy to work with. I definitely recommend reaching out to her.

It's easy to underestimate Melissa Waller. She looks like a cheerleader, absolutely lovely. But don't be fooled. There's an excellent brain beneath. She has skills in manipulating a market that befuddles many. She went through our house with a practiced eye, arranged our photos, including using a drone! She sold the house for $50,000 over the asking price! Did I mention it took her all of TWO days to do this...

She sold the house for $50,000 over the asking price! Did I mention it took her all of TWO days to do this. Then on to buying a new house. She guided us through one disappointing choice, only to find an even better house. She fought, using a lot of knowledge, for us to get the house. Somehow she beat out two offers, including a cash offer. She answered every question and always listened. Three transactions in total brought on by this very professional and competent real estate agent!

Jane

When I decided to sell my home, I had a lot of questions. Melissa patiently explained the process and contacted me often to check in and assure that I stayed in the know. When we met, I chose the time and location. She worked tirelessly and got me a great price.

Recently, we sold a house in Klahanie (Issaquah/Sammamish) with Melissa and what can I say but to say "Wow, I am blown away by her". We took a long time to decide on the agent that can represent us because we had some good and not-so-good agents in the past, and we knew how painful it is to work with "not-so-good" ones. And I am soooo glad that I decided to go with her. She is not only insightful on the market including Klahanie area, but was very engaging and encouraging to advise us on what is the right things to do for my house...

She was not afraid to stand up for our interest when we are dealing with contractors and other parties, and she always had our interest in forefront rather than her own. She helped so much on getting the house ready and be the real Single-Point-Of-Contact for all matters on this sale. She is very professional, knowledgeable, reliable, attentive, responsive and always available. (I often get her response within matter of minutes even if it is very late at night.) I am highly recommending her to all my friends and I also recommend her for anyone who is looking for a long-term real-estate partner that you can trust.

Brian and Natalie

We had a great experience with Melissa. She spelled out exactly what we should do to land our dream house, knowing multiple offers were being made, and we landed it! She is prompt, responsive and not too pushy; and also knows the contract paperwork really well. Highly recommend!

Melissa recently shepherded us through the process of purchasing our new home. Melissa is not only an expert on all things related to the Greater Seattle real estate market, but she also consistently demonstrates an unparalleled degree of empathy and caring for her clients. She's helped us through a particularly challenging move during COVID and has been able to provide us peace of mind during our purchase.

Melissa proved to be a phenomenal agent for our family. We saw our house of interest online on a Friday evening and reached out to her after hearing of several happy friends and family members that had successfully bought and sold with her in the past. Melissa set up an appointment for us to view the house before the end of the weekend and became familiar with out family situation and financial limitations quickly, reaching out to a fabulous lender to help us be creative and secure a higher approval than our original pre-approval. Knowing our situation and the housing market made it so Melissa could better set the stage for us to be competitive with our offer. And, boy, did we have to be competitive...

Knowing our situation and the housing market made it so Melissa could better set the stage for us to be competitive with our offer. And, boy, did we have to be competitive... there were 30 other legitimate offers for the same home we had our sights set on! With the offer review date on Tuesday, just 4 days after we initially contacted Melissa, we had to have all our ducks in a row. Melissa's personable approach, with not only us, but just as importantly, the seller agent, truly helped us negotiate and get our offer accepted even though we weren't the highest offer and we didn't have as much upfront cash as the other offers did. We are in awe of Melissa and the magic that she worked to help us get our new home.

Dave and Nancy

We used Melissa as our agent and couldn’t have been happier with the results. Melissa was right there when it came to finding us a buyer ASAP. She got us an amazing price for our home. We couldn’t imagine how this transaction could have gone any smoother. We would use her again in a heartbeat & highly recommend her to anyone looking to get the absolute best price for their home.

Melissa Waller knows how to sell a house! From our very first meeting, I knew this was the woman to hire! Having seen home after home she sold in my neighborhood, Klahanie (Sammamish), I had no doubt Melissa would not only be the one to get us the most money, ($240K over asking price!!), but was also so personable, accessible, and just a delight to work with...

Having vacated the house during the five days of showings, I felt so secure knowing Melissa was there every morning and evening to take care of business and make sure my home was secure. What an added bonus that was! I can not say enough great things about Melissa and my husband and I wholeheartedly recommend her for any of your realty needs!

Phil and Emily

We had a great experience with Melissa as our realtor! Within a week of contacting her we had our offer accepted on our dream home! She prepared us for a very competitive real estate market and made excellent recommendations about what to include in our offer. When constructing our offer her estimate of the sale price of our home was right on the money! She walked us through each step of buying our first single family home and we are forever grateful! We will definitely work with her again in the future and recommend her to all of our friends!

Melissa Waller is an excellent agent and has been wonderful to work with. She really knows the area and what needed to be done to sell our home. She staged it beautifully, and her negotiation skills helped get us well over asking price. We were thrilled with the results! She is thorough, professional, and was easy to reach to answer any of our questions in the process. We’re so glad to have her as our agent, would highly recommend!

After considering several agents, the decision for us was easy; we knew we wanted to put our trust in Melissa Waller.

Melissa shows a high level of professionalism, drive, and care for her clients from the first moment you meet her. She positioned us to achieve the highest result in this market through her meticulous planning and preparation. Her expert negotiation skills resulted in multiple offers and ultimately a bid substantially over the list price. There is a reason Melissa continues to achieve record-breaking results for her clients. When we think about the word amazing, Melissa comes to mind...

We cannot recommend Melissa enough and will be telling anyone thinking about buying or selling a home to be sure and use Melissa.

Melissa went above and beyond for me during a very tough time and was so authentic, compassionate and a very smart and professional business woman. She managed everything and the process was so seamless and easy. She was responsive and transparent. We ended up selling for substantially over list price!

We are so grateful to Melissa for her guidance in helping us optimize two transactions, including new construction, in a volatile market. She is not only an expert of all aspects of the buying and selling process, but she is also extremely thoughtful, committed, and trustworthy. As we prepared to list our home, Melissa helped us optimize our space and prioritize small tweaks and updates to drive the most return. She provided customized silent-talker cards to highlight noteworthy features throughout our home, which made for a consistent and elevated experience for private showings. After we listed our home, we left town, knowing she and her team would check in on our home daily and take care of it as if it were their own.

And despite closing on our first home, and waiting for our new construction to finish, Melissa has continued to treat us as a priority. She and her team have been available to take us on construction check-ins and she has continued to provide invaluable advice throughout the process.

Melissa helped pilot our house listing adventure through the challenging waters of the spring and early summer of 2022. Throughout the whole process, she was a great resource and confidant – ready with suggestions about home improvements that made our house more attractive, suggestions about vendors, regular communication about market conditions, and helpful strategizing and calm. She’s a capable realtor, and best of all a thoughtful human being!

When we decided to sell our home we interviewed a couple of agents. Melissa and her lovely family used to live next door to us, she knows neighborhood very well and we decided to talk to her as well. She gave us lot of insightful information and many suggestions on preparing our home for sale. We were skeptical about some of her advice, but decided to follow through. Everything worked out exactly as was planned. Melissa and her team helped us with removing some of the furniture and even found people that needed it. The sale process was quick and straight forward.

Melissa did an excellent job and we highly recommend her as seller's agent.

Melissa Waller sold our house in Pine Lake, Sammamish. One of the hardest working people in the business. Melissa and her team treat you like family, and work as hard as they can for you. She was extremely responsive and very pro-active on communicating with us. She left us with a list of tasks to focus upon and prepare our home to show. This is where Melissa's connections started to add value.

This is where Melissa's connections started to add value. She brought in a stager to help us highlight the beauty of our home. And with our staging plan in place, she assisted in prepping the house for market. In addition, she knew how to market our home. The pictures on our listing made us almost regret selling the place! It blew us away when Melissa called just five days after hitting the market with a great offer on our house. We accepted the offer and Melissa was there to advise us every step of the way all the way up to closing. We put our trust in Melissa and it paid off. If you are going to sell or buy a house I highly recommend you go with Melissa and the Compass Real Estate Team. Good luck!

Watching Melissa work over the past few weeks has been awe-inspiring. Melissa knows the market in the PNW in such an intuitive way, and she has a plethora of connections that helped us through every step of the process. Her warm, inviting persona made us like her from the start. However, it was the way she explained how she planned to prep our home for the market that won us over.

She helped us find the best time to sell, understand the changing landscape of fluctuating interest rates, and showcase our home in a way that allowed us to maximize profit. She staged our house (and coordinated EVERYTHING related to that) and helped us get a plethora of outstanding offers. The way she navigated our offers demonstrates her deep knowledge of the process, compassion for the people involved in the process, and savvy negotiation tactics. She helped us negotiate excellent terms all around, and in the end, we closed with a SIGNIFICANT amount over our list price. Melissa was always available when we needed her, and we are so thankful we chose her to sell our home. Melissa is genuinely one-of-a-kind awesomeness!

We've been friends with Melissa for many years and watched her career flourish since she 'moved' into real estate.

Melissa educated us on what to expect, how to prepare the house for best showing, what dependencies we could proactively address, and ensured that we were informed and comfortable with each step. After we received multiple offers that were significantly over our asking price, Melissa negotiated a smooth closing and amicable terms for everyone involved! Thank you Melissa for your project management skills, attention to detail, sense of urgency (with a contingent purchase on the line), and passion for perfection. It was a pleasure to work with you and we wouldn't hesitate to choose you again and refer you to all of our current and future friends!

Melissa was both elegant and confident every step of the way. She sold my Squak Mountain home in Isaaquah for me at about 500% over what I paid for it. She was knowledgeable about the process every step of the way and had multiple professional and/or reasonably priced people to support the process. Melissa was thorough, warm, intelligent…pretty much everything you would want in someone helping you to sell your house...

You can’t go wrong with Melissa, if what you are after is good taste and results with a quick sale and a great price for your home.

A shout out to Melissa Waller who was my agent for selling my Klahanie house: Your easy, friendly demeanor mixed with your ability to completely take care of business while relieving the stress that comes with selling a home (her concierge service for contractors and scheduling inspection/repairs was such a weight off my shoulders!) and still being an adorable, hands on mom was inspiring…

Can’t say enough about how her communication was on point… Reminders and all. Melissa truly gets the process.

Where to even start! Melissa is a true ROCKSTAR! From start to finish, she was there with us through the whole process.

She helped us prep our house for market, and took care of our home when we were away.

In the end, she helped us sell our house for $330k over list price in just 5 days!!

We used Melissa to purchase our 2nd house and we can't say enough good things about her. She helped us get the winning offer on a house with multiple bids and the house even appraised for a significant amount above our offer! Her communication skills are amazing- she was so good about answering our questions quickly and without hesitation. Her level of customer service is hard to find...

Melissa was so helpful during our search and home purchase process! She was extremely patient with us during weeks of searching for a home that met all of our "needs" and most of our "wants." There were multiple offers on the home that we now own and she helped to ensure that our bid was successful. She also secured a repair credit for us in a very competitive market! She was available, responsive, easy to talk to, realistic and happy to reach out to anyone who she thought could be helpful...

She was available, responsive, easy to talk to, realistic and happy to reach out to anyone who she thought could be helpful. We were unhappy with our initial lender and she came through with someone able to complete our financing on terms better than we'd originally been offered in an amazingly short time frame! We had an extremely tight closing deadline and at the last minute didn't appraise at purchase price due to a missing handrail. Melissa obtained a contractor on the weekend (next day) to come in and install one, and had the home re-appraised in time to meet our closing deadline (all while we were out of town)!

Jana

Melissa differed drastically from former agents I have worked with in that she went the extra mile to knock on doors to market and spread the word for my home sale, hired cleaning crews, landscaping and staging amongst others to help my home really shine, and even reached out to qualified agents in other states to help me buy my next home! I would recommend her as I feel she is a real asset!

Melissa was able to negotiate the sale of our home to get us $150,000 over asking price, which was unexpected but we were nonetheless thrilled about! She has impressive attention to detail which showed in the staging of the home. She was very transparent and kept my husband and I informed the entire time...

Ross L. 

Melissa is a fantastic agent for both buying and selling. As a buyer, this market moves very fast and Melissa was several steps ahead the whole time, which allowed us to buy our dream home with 6 other competitive offers and we won even with another offer coming in higher than ours. This was completely due to Melissa's meticulous work both with us, the buyers, and her work with the seller's agent...

This was completely due to Melissa's meticulous work both with us, the buyers, and her work with the seller's agent. After buying our home, we then needed to turn around and sell our current home. Once again, Melissa helped through the whole process with preparing our house and listing it with great marketing. We were able to receive multiple offers in less than a week. We accepted a full list price offer after 5 days. On top of how great Melissa was with all of the technical aspects, she is just a great person to work with through the whole process.

When we walked away from the first house we were trying to purchase, she continued to put forth effort to help us find a great alternative that met all of our criteria. Once we found the house we really wanted, she provided great advice that helped us close the deal and purchase the house we wanted. We couldn't be happier for how smooth the negotiations, process, and paperwork went!

Tim and Lauren

Melissa is an amazing real estate agent. We met with a few agents before deciding to work with Melissa, but deciding on her was easy – she clearly stood out because of her genuine interest in our family and what would make us happy, and her drive and determination to help us find our dream home. Through the entire process she delivered beyond our expectations. Melissa went above and beyond by sending letters to numerous home owners that might be open to selling.

She found and arranged multiple off-market showings and was amazingly helpful with understanding the considerations for an off-market home, which was new to us. When we finally found our new home, she again helped make us feel at ease while writing a strong offer that helped us get the home we wanted at a price we liked. We will definitely work with her again in the future.

There aren’t enough great things to say about Melissa Waller! She is truly the calm within the storm that comes with selling a home. As first time sellers, the process seemed quite overwhelming, but Melissa led us every step of the way. Her high level of professionalism matched with her compassion and empathy for her clients made her the dream realtor for us. Not only does she hustle, but her sincerity in wanting the best for my family was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced...

Melissa has centered herself around a stellar team of professionals that helped prep our home for market. She helped us come up with a realistic game plan and settled for nothing less than a flawless execution. Melissa’s guidance resulted in our home having multiple offers beyond asking price! Her support and devotion to my family didn’t stop after closing. Melissa lends her knowledge and expertise in all facets of the industry anytime you need it. If you want the best possible outcome for buying or selling a home, you absolutely need to have Melissa Waller on your side. I’m lucky to have had her as my agent, and now as my friend.

Melissa is exactly what you need in this crazy market. Someone who works tirelessly, knows the market, and knows all the ins and outs of the technical stuff to help you get the info you need to make decisions. She always had our backs and without her we wouldn't have been able to buy and sell and be so satisfied even in this crazy market.

I listed with Mellissa and within 20 hours I was under contract. The offer was significantly over listing price. I was willing to accept and move on but Melissa suggested we counter as we were about to go into the weekend and the listing was brand new. They not only accepted the counter but increased the offer beyond our counter. I could not be happier with Melissa and her team. We did everything remotely as we live in California. Definitely a five star team!

Melissa is amazing to work with! We started our search last year but our search area was very restricted as we didn’t want to move out of Klahanie. There was even a time when we were thinking to stop the search due to the nature of the market but she kept her focus on our requirements and was able to find us an off-market house in a very nice neighborhood...

She always responded quickly to texts, emails and phone calls. We really appreciate Melissa’s hard work in giving us a home to cherish for a very long time.

Laurie Ann and Dave

We highly recommend Melissa Waller! With Melissa's help, we went to market in less than 2 weeks. She managed the contractors she found to make repairs to our home. Our house at the time was the highest selling home in Klahanie's history selling at 23% OVER asking! In regards to her negotiating, she comes to bat for her clients. She knows the market so well.

The process was seamless and her attention to detail is impeccable! We appreciate her so much, she will be listing another one of our properties in the area soon!

After buying and selling several houses over my life, I found Melissa Waller to be the most skilled realtor I’ve ever worked with. She hired a company to stage the house, employed a brilliant photographer, and guided me through a pre-inspection in preparation for the sale. My house never looked so good. It went on the market on a Thursday morning and sold by Sunday afternoon...

She is professional, organized, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. I will be looking for a new home and there is no question what realtor I will hire to represent me - Melissa Waller. I highly recommend you hire her too!

Melissa sold our Fall City home in August of 2022. We were up against rising interest rates and the transition from a seller’s to a buyer’s market. Melissa did an excellent job marketing our home. She was always communicative, friendly, and professional. We got an offer and she negotiated it up to a great price in a changing market, all while helping to manage our stress along the way!

I would not hesitate to recommend Melissa to a friend or use her again in the future. Thanks Melissa!

Melissa is perfection when it comes to a real estate agent. Aside from knowledge and expertise in her field, she is also kind and compassionate and will fight to the bitter end for her clients every need. She will fully ensure that every minute detail is taken care of and the end deal is in your favor. I cannot recommend her enough. If you are buying or selling a home, she’s the one!

I recently worked with Melissa on the sale of my how in the Klahanie Community in Sammamish. She is the utmost professional. From early discussions on listing and property prep, to staging for show, to all of the details of selling through to close, Melissa brought expert knowledge, attentions to detail, and a professional approach with excellent follow through. She guided me through the process, provided references to services that I needed to prep and move, and negotiated a substantial amount over list for the sale.

We had a wonderful experience working with Melissa selling our home! She was so patient with us from the time we first contacted her a year ago, to finally being ready to sell our house. She was there every step of the way, and was extremely responsive with all of our questions.

Melissa shows a high level of professionalism and knowledge of the market, and she guided us on the best repairs and updates to make in order to maximize our dollars. We even used her excellent list of contacts to find the right vendors to prep and stage our home. We were thoroughly impressed with her negotiation skills, as we received an excellent offer despite some uncertainty in the market. Not only was she the one to get us the most money possible, but she was also so personable, accessible and just a delight to work with. During the process, she also helped our daughter purchase her first home in Seattle, negotiating the sale for under list price. We highly recommend Melissa Waller for all of your Real Estate needs!

The Odell Family

Melissa is the best. She helped us prep for the market and then negotiate excellent terms and a significant amount over list price. There's no way we would have sold our home for the price we did without her help. She was there every step of the way and made things as easy for us as possible with her hands-on help and expert advice.

I highly recommend working with Melissa on your real estate needs. We had to sell our home on fairly short notice due to a move overseas. We interviewed a few agents and chose Melissa as she was highly recommended by a trusted friend. We did not go wrong. Melissa gave us excellent advise on preparing for the sale and staging. Given the short notice of our move, our timing kept changing and she was always on the ball...

Given the short notice of our move, our timing kept changing and she was always on the ball. She helped us find reasonably priced contractors and even worked some miracles to help us get a broken window fixed at the last minute. Now I know the market is hot, but we had 20 appointments within 6 hours of listing. Moreover, we got an early offer that was significantly over list. Melissa's insights and guidance were extremely helpful as we evaluated that offer against waiting for the offer review day. We followed her advice and were extremely happy with the results. Can't recommend her enough!

Upon our first meeting with Melissa, we found her to be genuine, personable and the most knowledgeable of the neighborhood and its market trends. It was clear that she was highly motivated to sell out home for top dollar. Her integrity was further confirmed by very high compliments we received from a fellow colleague. We also appreciated that she lived in the community and only a five minute drive away should we need anything. Her patience with our many questions was never ending! Melissa did a fabulous job of getting our home in the best possible presentation for market. She made excellent suggestions (without going overboard!) and provided great resources to carry out minor jobs and repairs that ensured a successful listing. Choosing Melissa as our agent resulted in selling our home quickly, negotiating excellent terms and selling for a significant amount over the list price! We are extremely appreciative for Melissa’s professionalism and highly recommend her services without reservations!

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Melissa and her whole team. We had very few questions because they covered everything from before market prep with excellent staging ideas, home photographs, brochures, excellent negotiating skills to get us a great price significantly over the asking price to completion and signing documents.

Melissa was there every step of the way and made the whole selling process seem easy.

We would very highly and enthusiastically recommend Melissa Waller.

Ashley and Eric

We reached out to Melissa a few weeks before we wanted to put our house on the market. Melissa did a great job helping us get the house ready, hosting open houses, and highlighting the unique benefits of our home which resulted in several offers over list after the first weekend on the market and closing at $75k over list!

Highly recommended!

The Pileggi Family

Melissa worked tirelessly with us over the last six months to help us find, secure, and close on our dream home. She put in the time and effort to send letters, knock on doors, and scour the listing services for just the right fit. Very few agents would go to those lengths these days! With an on-market opportunity, she had a pre-inspection and contractor meeting lined up for us at the home within 24 hours to help us quickly assess the opportunity and be prepared to submit a strong offer...

With an on-market opportunity, she had a pre-inspection and contractor meeting lined up for us at the home within 24 hours to help us quickly assess the opportunity and be prepared to submit a strong offer. While we ultimately chose not to pursue that house, both the inspector and the contractor stayed committed to helping us on an off-market opportunity based on their relationship with Melissa. She, of course, stayed committed to seeing our purchase through, as well, and handled the contract negotiations and execution perfectly. Her impeccable attention to detail even caught a $9,000 error the title company made! Melissa is dedicated to every client, readily available via email, phone, or text, and she is just an all-around nice person you enjoy spending time with. Yes, there are plenty of online resources out there to get real estate information, but you need to hire Melissa Waller to really get what you want for one of the largest purchases you and your family will ever make.

Carolynn and Peter

Melissa is very responsive and was a real trooper as we took her all over Seattle and the Eastside to view possible homes. Melissa and her partner searched for off-market homes for us to see in addition to regular listings, when we were in a jam to find a new home. They were also great when it came time to negotiate - they got more than we asked for. On top of it all, she's very easy to work with. I definitely recommend reaching out to her.

It's easy to underestimate Melissa Waller. She looks like a cheerleader, absolutely lovely. But don't be fooled. There's an excellent brain beneath. She has skills in manipulating a market that befuddles many. She went through our house with a practiced eye, arranged our photos, including using a drone! She sold the house for $50,000 over the asking price! Did I mention it took her all of TWO days to do this...

She guided us through one disappointing choice, only to find an even better house. She fought, using a lot of knowledge, for us to get the house. Somehow she beat out two offers, including a cash offer. She answered every question and always listened. Three transactions in total brought on by this very professional and competent real estate agent!

Jane

When I decided to sell my home, I had a lot of questions. Melissa patiently explained the process and contacted me often to check in and assure that I stayed in the know. When we met, I chose the time and location. She worked tirelessly and got me a great price.

Recently, we sold a house in Klahanie (Issaquah/Sammamish) with Melissa and what can I say but to say "Wow, I am blown away by her". We took a long time to decide on the agent that can represent us because we had some good and not-so-good agents in the past, and we knew how painful it is to work with "not-so-good" ones. And I am soooo glad that I decided to go with her. She is not only insightful on the market including Klahanie area, but was very engaging and encouraging to advise us on what is the right things to do for my house...

She was not afraid to stand up for our interest when we are dealing with contractors and other parties, and she always had our interest in forefront rather than her own. She helped so much on getting the house ready and be the real Single-Point-Of-Contact for all matters on this sale. She is very professional, knowledgeable, reliable, attentive, responsive and always available. (I often get her response within matter of minutes even if it is very late at night.) I am highly recommending her to all my friends and I also recommend her for anyone who is looking for a long-term real-estate partner that you can trust.

Brian and Natalie

We had a great experience with Melissa. She spelled out exactly what we should do to land our dream house, knowing multiple offers were being made, and we landed it! She is prompt, responsive and not too pushy; and also knows the contract paperwork really well. Highly recommend!

Melissa recently shepherded us through the process of purchasing our new home. Melissa is not only an expert on all things related to the Greater Seattle real estate market, but she also consistently demonstrates an unparalleled degree of empathy and caring for her clients. She's helped us through a particularly challenging move during COVID and has been able to provide us peace of mind during our purchase.

Melissa proved to be a phenomenal agent for our family. We saw our house of interest online on a Friday evening and reached out to her after hearing of several happy friends and family members that had successfully bought and sold with her in the past. Melissa set up an appointment for us to view the house before the end of the weekend and became familiar with out family situation and financial limitations quickly, reaching out to a fabulous lender to help us be creative and secure a higher approval than our original pre-approval. Knowing our situation and the housing market made it so Melissa could better set the stage for us to be competitive with our offer. And, boy, did we have to be competitive...

And, boy, did we have to be competitive... there were 30 other legitimate offers for the same home we had our sights set on! With the offer review date on Tuesday, just 4 days after we initially contacted Melissa, we had to have all our ducks in a row. Melissa's personable approach, with not only us, but just as importantly, the seller agent, truly helped us negotiate and get our offer accepted even though we weren't the highest offer and we didn't have as much upfront cash as the other offers did. We are in awe of Melissa and the magic that she worked to help us get our new home.

Dave and Nancy

We used Melissa as our agent and couldn’t have been happier with the results. Melissa was right there when it came to finding us a buyer ASAP. She got us an amazing price for our home. We couldn’t imagine how this transaction could have gone any smoother. We would use her again in a heartbeat & highly recommend her to anyone looking to get the absolute best price for their home.

Melissa Waller knows how to sell a house! From our very first meeting, I knew this was the woman to hire! Having seen home after home she sold in my neighborhood, Klahanie (Sammamish), I had no doubt Melissa would not only be the one to get us the most money, ($240K over asking price!!), but was also so personable, accessible, and just a delight to work with...

Having seen home after home she sold in my neighborhood, Klahanie (Sammamish), I had no doubt Melissa would not only be the one to get us the most money, ($240K over asking price!!), but was also so personable, accessible, and just a delight to work with. Having vacated the house during the five days of showings, I felt so secure knowing Melissa was there every morning and evening to take care of business and make sure my home was secure. What an added bonus that was! I can not say enough great things about Melissa and my husband and I wholeheartedly recommend her for any of your realty needs!

We had a great experience with Melissa as our realtor! Within a week of contacting her we had our offer accepted on our dream home! She prepared us for a very competitive real estate market and made excellent recommendations about what to include in our offer. When constructing our offer her estimate of the sale price of our home was right on the money! She walked us through each step of buying our first single family home and we are forever grateful! We will definitely work with her again in the future and recommend her to all of our friends!

We interviewed three excellent agents and selected Melissa. It was the right choice! She is very professional, knowledgeable, and personable. Her attention to detail saved us money and time.

She got us more money than we ever hoped for. We highly recommend her!

After considering several agents, the decision for us was easy; we knew we wanted to put our trust in Melissa Waller.

Melissa shows a high level of professionalism, drive, and care for her clients from the first moment you meet her. She positioned us to achieve the highest result in this market through her meticulous planning and preparation. Her expert negotiation skills resulted in multiple offers and ultimately a bid substantially over the list price. There is a reason Melissa continues to achieve record-breaking results for her clients. When we think about the word amazing, Melissa comes to mind...

We could not be happier and cannot thank Melissa enough for the service and results she achieved for us. We are confident Melissa will continue to provide excellent representation for her clients and achieve the highest marks.

We cannot recommend Melissa enough and will be telling anyone thinking about buying or selling a home to be sure and use Melissa.

Melissa went above and beyond for me during a very tough time and was so authentic, compassionate and a very smart and professional business woman. She managed everything and the process was so seamless and easy. She was responsive and transparent. We ended up selling for substantially over list price!
