Testimonials

Chris Rouen – Seneca, SC
“Melanie has been representing me for real estate investments for 8 years. I am a GE retiree and have lived in many states over my long career. Melanie is by far the best agent that has ever represented me. I trust her implicitly, and have given her many referrals based on her knowledge of the market and customer loyalty. Good agents answer your questions. Great agents will give you answers to the questions you are NOT asking to be sure you are fully informed, and are aware of any/all potential issues. That is Melanie. One example stands out. I was looking at another piece of investment property 3 years ago. The pricing and location was great. I told Melanie to start writing a purchase contract. She stopped me and said, “Does this really fit in your portfolio? Are you sure?” I thought hard about it and she was right. I did not buy. That is the difference. Highly recommended. ”

“Melanie Fink is, HANDS DOWN, the best real estate agent in the WORLD.  The listing, showings, and finally the SOLD was so easy for us as she took care of everything.  She planned the sale strategy, everything fell into place as we sold.  What else could you ask for, NOTHING.  SOLD is the word!!”

Brad Cunic
“Melanie was aboslutely great and extremely professional. She came with a crew and helped get our house show ready, highlighting the best atributes. The listing looked and sounded great, and in just four and a half days we had a contract. As we went through the selling process, we also had extra furniture, sailboat and kayaks that we needed to sell. Melanie jumped right in and helped us to find buyers for some of those items which was a great help and relief. As I had already left the area to start my new job, most of the packing was left up to my wife. Melanie even offered to help her. She went the extra mile to help us any way she could. I would highly recommend her for anyone selling a house in the area.”

“I want to thank you for the time you spent with us.  You  were extremely efficient and were able to understand our preferences almost immediately. Your thoroughness, your intimate knowledge of the community and ability to provide a wide variety of options made the search experience extremely enjoyable. Because of my transient career, we have bought and sold more homes that I care to count and I would rank your service as some of the best we’ve experienced. I would recommend you to anyone interested in searching for real estate in the Keowee area.”

Lisa and Richard Goldman – Parkland, FL
“I just wanted to write to say thank you for all your help these past few years in selling our 2 houses. Your dedication and friendship went way beyond the requirements of a good Realtor. When we were looking for a realtor we had asked for a recommendation of a “sharp” shooter, and that’s what we got. Thank you again so much for everything. You helped make this bad situation a little better for us.”

“Melanie is truly “in the business”. She will always be objective, and will keep searching with you until you find the right property. When selling, she will spend time and money to get maximum exposure to get your property sold.”

Ray Willoch – Atlanta, GA
“Melanie’s go-getter work ethic and knowledge of the lake paid dividends for me. She remembered a wonderful home (on a fantastic peninsula lot) that had been on the market for a brief period over a year ago, which was rumored to be on the verge of re-listing. I was able to tour the home just before it listed, and got it under contract within 48 hours at a very attractive price. Her after-sale assistance with things that needed to be done to the house has been very helpful to me as an out-of-state owner. She consistently goes beyond the call of duty. She made it a very easy decision for me to award her the listing of my undeveloped point lot that I am now looking to sell.”

Rob Coogan Coogan Custom Homes Inc. – Clemson, SC
“I have been working with Melanie for over ten years. When she told me that she was going to start a career in real estate I knew she would become a great asset to whomever she was working with. I have sold some investment property and one of my personal homes through Melanie with great success! The process of buying and selling real estate can become stressful and emotional. Melanie always made sure my wife and I were informed on what was going on with the sale process and had answers to all our questions. I always recommend Melanie to anyone that is interested in buying or selling real estate. Not only is she an excellent realtor but a great friend as well.”

Michael and Kellye Ratcliff – Simpsonville, SC
“It was important to us to work with a realtor who took the time to find out what we were looking for and who was knowledgeable enough to help us find it. We really lucked out when we found Melanie! She is knowledgeable not only about real estate in the area in which we were looking but also about people. She took the time to learn about us; our likes and dislikes and preferences, etc. She is well-connected; an endless resource! She continues to be helpful even a year after we purchased the house! Melanie is the ultimate professional! She is friendly, organized, caring, patient, detailed and a joy with which to work! We would (and have) recommended her to our friends!”

Rick and Cathy Wells – Marietta, GA
“When we began our search for a home away from Atlanta, we were drawn to Lake Keowee because of its beauty and its easy accessibility. A friend recommended that we contact Melanie and we quickly understood why. Melanie was extremely knowledgeable about the area, the builders and properties on the market. She very patiently met with us weekend after weekend (after weekend–after weekend…..you don’t have to put all those weekends–that can be our secret) as we narrowed our search and began to focus on what we really wanted. She was always professional and helpful and we can say with the utmost confidence that we would contact Melanie again for any other real estate needs.”

Rene Hahn – Naples, FL
“Melanie- I am long overdue on this. Life has been absolutely crazy since the moment I decided to accept this job and relocate my family from Seneca to Naples. I never got a chance to thank you in person since I came out ahead with the girls. However, I didn’t want more time to pass before I said thank you. You were absolutely a start to work with and I appreciate you selling our home. I would highly recommend you to anyone looking for a top notch realtor. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Wishing you continued success and jealous every day that you get to live out on my dream lake. Who knows, maybe someday I will need to buy a lake house again out on Lake Keowee :)”

Pat & Clarence Thrash – Youngsville, LA
“Melanie Fink is very knowledgeable in the real estate business. She stays up to date and well informed in all areas related to real estate. Having already purchased a home in Louisiana, we felt confident in her so we went ahead and moved before our house in Seneca sold. Melanie faithfully kept us informed during the process of selling our home which occurred within a month after we moved. We highly recommend Melanie Fink as your realtor.”
