Testimonials

Experienced Negotiator


"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. Melissa's knowledge of the market, prompt responses and overall great service made it a fantastic experience. She also helped us get a great deal on a new home. I would highly recommend her!"

Excellent Customer Service


"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. If you want an agent that is determined, hardworking and has your best interest in mind, Melissa is your gal."

Highly recommended!


"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!"

Melissa was incredible


"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!"

Melissa and her team are great!


"Melissa and her team are great! They've sold a house and are selling another two houses for me. They are experienced and knowledgeable in the area and worked quickly to sell my house. Her team is capable, sweet and enjoyable to work with. They ensure that all my needs are met and work very efficiently. I would recommend her and her team to anyone who wants to buy or sell their home."

Extremely patient


"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. 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)!"

You need to hire Melissa


"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. 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."

Melissa differed drastically from other agents


"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!"

Meets all of my wishes and expectations


"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 am so grateful I found an agent I connect with who is working so hard to find something that meets all of my wishes and expectations. I can relax and enjoy this experience knowing she is looking out for my best interest."

Fantastic experience


"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."

Nordstrom-level customer service!


"If you are thinking about selling or buying a home call Melissa Waller FIRST! Her strategy and marketing skills in selling our home got us $52,000 above our asking price. Her negotiating skills were able to get us rent back for ten days for FREE. Her organizational skills in reviewing qualified buyers and their bids was concise and easy to understand. Her sense of urgency and attention to detail from start to beyond closing is unmatched. Her customer service surpasses anything that Nordstrom has ever produced."

Worked Tirelessly


"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."

The one to call


"Melissa Waller is the one to call if you have real estate needs! She helped get us $16,000 above our asking price and her expertise helped us with buying another house at the asking price, now that's incredible. Her sense of urgency and attention to detail from start to beyond closing is unmatched. Her customer service surpasses anything we have ever experience. Thanks Melissa for all your effort to sell and buy a house for my parents at the same time."

Blown Away by Her!


"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."

Professional and Competent


"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. 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."

We landed it!


"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!"

Trusted Advisor


"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. If you're looking for a trusted advisor in your home search, look no further."

Several steps ahead


"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. 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."

Phenomenal Agent


"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... 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."

Beyond our expectations


"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."

Happy with the results!


"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."

Extremely invaluable


"We recently worked with Melissa to purchase our first home in Sammamish. She could not have made the process any easier! Melissa is extremely knowledgeable, responsive and so easy to work with. Her knowledge of the overall real estate market and the Sammamish real estate market was invaluable. We knew that the market was extremely competitive and expected the purchasing process to take months. We fell in love with the second house we saw and wanted to make a competitive offer. Melissa was able to help us prepare a successful offer that beat out multiple others during this competitive time. We would definitely recommend Melissa to anyone looking to purchase a home!"

A Delight to Work With


"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!"

Great Experience with Melissa!


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!
