Working with Melissa was an atrocious experience to say the least. She did not listen, she did not have our best interest, and worst of all, she did not guide us through the selling process, which is her primary job.
Had we listened to her, we would have sold our home for less than what was owed and would have had to bring funds to the closing. I understand market value and that there is a current pricing range to each region and location. Melissa however, took this too literally and was unwilling to accept that there is a spectrum to the market value pricing as well as factors that come into play with each specific home. We could not reason with her. Luckily we followed our own judgment and listed our home for more than her "recommended" price. Not only did the appraisal go smoothly with no issues with the amount, but the home sold for more than our asking price.
Part of a realtor's responsibility is to guide their client through the home selling and buying process. That is why people hire a realtor. It would have been helpful had she listed out the steps to selling a house, but more importantly if she would have notified us of all of the costs involved. We were never given warning about all of the little hidden costs associated with the sale of a home and, more often than not, we would be left scrambling to gather funds for something with only a day's notice. Her negotiation skills are also less than stellar. We truly felt that she had the buyer's back more than she did ours.
Melissa was very responsive when we would send a message or call her. She was always available. The problem was that, though she was on the line, she didn't listen to a word you were saying. I was forever repeating myself and reminding her of things I had relayed to her multiple times already. Towards the end of this nightmare I had to send her a message that we wanted to deal with her as little as possible and only when necessary. I also stated that we would communicate only through writing, not only because we no longer wished to speak to her, but to also get everything put into writing. All she did was email us the amended contracts to sign with no guidance or advice. She checked out and left us to fend for ourselves.
I never want to own a home again due to my selling experience with Melissa being so stressful and awful. I never want to go through that again. After the fact, I spoke with a view realtors regarding my experience and the consensus was that she is a sad excuse for a real estate agent.
I am glad that other people have had a relatively pleasant experience with her. I don't want anyone else going through what we did. That is the reason for my review. I want to let people know that there is definitely a possibility that they can encounter the same horrible situation that I did with her. Why take the chance? I want to reiterate how important it is to find a knowledgeable and competent agent. I wish that I had done more research and had been more persnickety with my interviews. When all is said and done, you are the one that has to live in the house that you chose and pay the negotiated mortgage. Melissa gets to collect her commission and walk away onto the next "client".
Melissa was very helpful, flexible, and available throughout the home buying process. She made buying our first home less stressful than we thought it would be.
Melissa was fantastic! She is very knowledgeable and always contactable. I’d gladly use her again, and would recommend her to my friends and family. During the negotiation process she was able to get more than I was asking for.
Melissa made buying a home easy. Her professionalism and knowledge was so comforting. I know people say it can be very stressful buying a home. But my experience with Melissa was so smooth.
Thank you Melissa Fields!
Melissa was amazing to work with. I found a home I really wanted to see in person and Melissa met us 30 minutes later on a Sunday night to see this house. We immediately signed papers and put in an offer. The next day our offer was accepted and we were officially homeowners of this house about a month later! She was fast, responsive, highly knowledgeable, and she has such a warm and friendly personality. When we outgrow this home in a few years, I know who I’ll be contacting!
Melissa definitely had a passion to make everything work well throughout my home selling experience. I was actually unable to do a lot of things while being on crutches after a surgery and Melissa went out of her way help me during this time where moving around was difficult.
I worked with Melissa to sell my home and I was amazed by her proactive approach to getting my home sold! Melissa was in constant contact with me throughout the entire selling process. She did research of comparable houses in my area and provided a fair assessment of the listing price of my house. Additionally, Melissa was very active in attracting potential buyers to look at my house. I had 2 offers within the first two days that my house was on the market. I would definitely recommend anyone looking to buy or sell to talk to Melissa first. Her personality and professional demeanor ensures that everyone is comfortable.
Melissa was seriously the best realtor we could have ever asked for! After dropping a few realtors before we found Melissa, it was a breath of fresh air to have someone like herself who was truly attentive to our needs & made us feel valued as her clients. Since we were first-time home buyers & we knew little to nothing about the market, Melissa was extremely knowledgable & full of information that really helped us understand what needed to be done. She helped us purchase our first home with ease! If you are a first-time home buyer (or not!) & you're looking for someone who truly values you & will help you purchase a home, Melissa is your girl! I look forward to working with her in the future!
Melissa was beyond amazing in helping us find the perfect home for us. We consider her a fantastic agent who was patient, kind and enthusiastic about getting us to our ultimate goal in finding & owning our new home!!!
A++ realtor. My husband and I worked with Melissa on the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. From the very first phone call she has been pleasant, knowledgeable, and about her business. She kept in constant communication whether is was phone, email, or text. Melissa knew exactly what it would take to sell our home and it went under contact in less than 2 weeks. With the purchase of our new build she made sure to ask all the right questions and made sure we understood everything completely before we signed on the dotted line. We appreciate Melissa and everything she has done for our family. We are so happy and will be sure to refer everyone we come in contact with who wants to buy or sell a home. Thanks for everything Melissa!!!!!
Top notch realtor! She went above and beyond for us and was always on our side. Communication is key and she was the best at that. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor and we've already recommended her to several of our friends who are looking to buy. If you are looking for someone who communicates well, works tirelessly to get you exactly what you want, and who will be there for you every step of the way, then Melissa is right for you. She will get the job done!
Melissa is a great, energetic agent who offered me very helpful advice about how best to prepare my home for sale. She knows what it takes to engage potential buyers and did a great job of getting my home under contract in just about a week after it was listed. She's was also very helpful to keep things on track all the way to closing. I appreciate everything she did.
Well Melissa did it again. I recently closed on my third property with her as my realtor. Her attention to detail is amazing and it’s not always easy keeping me organized. I’ll never use anyone else but hopefully I’m not going to need her for awhile!
Tere thank you so much! I am so glad we met I so enjoy helping you with your Real Estate needs :)
i can not say enough good things about Melissa Fields. From the very minute she took my call until I closed on the house she was right there with me. Walked me through the whole process and kept in contact daily.She thought of things that i did not even know existed and put them in the contract. I will also say this purchase was not a huge money maker for her but she gave me the kind of treatment that she would give someone buying a much more expensive home. Melissa is a true professional in every sense of the word. Thanks again so much Melissa !
Keith,Thank you so much for my review! It was an extreme pleasure to help you buy your new home. I so enjoy the pictures of you on facebook sharing the home yours and sharing it with family. You picked a good one :) It was so great getting to know you through the process. :)
She worked for us, guided us when she could and was helpful giving us all options!
Quick to respond and SO helpful!!
We appreciated her professionalism at all times and making this crazy transfer sale for us a smooth ride.
Gretchen, Thank you so much for the review. I am so excited for your family and your new beginnings. It was my absolute pleasure helping to get your home SOLD!!!
Very professional and dedicated to you and her work, by far best realitor I have ever worked with, answered every question promptly, definitely she is the one to go with, thx melissa
Dan thank you so much for my Five Star Review. It is such a pleasure being your Realtor. I am very excited for you and the purchase of your NEW home.
Melissa has been more than helpful with our hunt for a new house. Asking questions I never thought about and showing us all our options. I would highly recommended her!!
Melissa Fields sold my home in a relatively short period of time in the price point we were expecting. Her professionalism is impeccable and she is extremely dedicated to marketing and selling real estate. We will be in the market to sell and purchase a new home within the next year and will be calling Melissa to assist. I would highly recommend Melissa Fields if someone was interested in buying or selling.
Melissa is an outstanding agent. She is a go-getter and works hard for you. She quickly responded to all my emails and text messages. She is not an agent that sits back and waits for things to happen. She actively markets your property and is extremely persistent in working deals and making them happen. She worked nonstop to get over the speed bumps and negotiate in our best interest. She made the deal go through and I am extremely grateful. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home or buy one. She is definitely one of the top realtors in Missouri.
Melissa had an excellent marketing plan. She effectively communicated with us all along the process. Melissa went above and beyond to get the deal to close on time when the buyers funding changed at the last minute.
Melissa helped us find a family home that we can make lots of memories in. Job well done. She was very knowledgable and provided us with all the information needed to buy our home.
Melissa is wonderful. She is professional and knowledgeable. She listens to what the client wants and she finds it. I felt very comfortable working with Melissa. She's honest and cares about her clients.
Melissa went above and beyond my expectations. If you need an agent I would definitely give her a call.
Melissa will stay on top of all requests. She will give you straight up truthful answers whether good or bad and not fill you with false expectations. It is what it is. She continues to work with you and stay on point before, during and after the sale, making sure everything that needs to be completed, gets completed.
She was amazing in helping me sell my home and purchase my new home. She answered my questions before I even knew I needed to ask them. She was available to me when ever I called or wanted to look at houses, whether it was early morning or well into the late evening. She was proactive in doing brokers open, open houses, marketing my listing on all available social media and websites.
Melissa is the best! Very professional, dedicated, and highly motivated to get as much traffic through my house as possible and we were able to sell it very quickly without very much grief or negotiating! Definitely will refer and use Melissa in the future as needed!!
On top of her game! Our property was a bit of a tricky one, and one that she was less familiar with, as it was a 38-acre farm with a historic home on the property. No problem. She did her homework, contacted the appropriate folks to get answers that she didn't have, and the whole thing went down smoothly. When I, the buyer, put in the property address on the sex-offender registry website, and up popped a registered offender on the same street, Melissa got right I the phone and was able to obtain all the details within a few hours. Oh, and did I mention that we bought this property while residing in California? Again, not an issue. Love this girl!!!!
Melissa was a pleasure to work with! We we're first timers and she did everything in her power to make sure our experience was as seamless as possible. She recommended our lender and she also had awesome inspectors on standby! She stuck with us every step of the way and always maintained contact with us. My family is forever grateful for Melissa and would highly recommend her services to any and everyone!
Melissa was a complete professional and didn't bat an eye when I told her that a short sale would probably be needed. She handled everything for me when I moved out of state for my new job. I never had to worry with her! Great experience!
A very thorough professional in every sense...communication, reliability, dependable . I specifically point out some of her business attributes...she worked very hard at researching some properties for which I had shown interest; Melissa was always very timely in meeting a schedule appointment ; always presented a very professional appearance and demeanor. I highly recommend Melissa as my agent!
Melissa was such a help to us in buying a house. She would meet us when we were available even if it meant her working late. She showed us more then one house on each trip, this helped us a lot since we lived quite a distance. We really liked that Melissa always got right back to us when we had a question, did not try putting us on the back burner. Her friendly demeanor was a plus.
Melissa worked very hard to get my property sold. Her approach and advice kept me informed as to all available options to attract motivated buyers. In the current market it is difficult to find the right buyer at the right price. Melissa was an expert that I highly recommend.
Melissa did a fantastic job! My wife and I were new home buyers and needed a lot out of our Realtor. We were 100% satisfied with her and will be using her again once we buy our next home.
I found out that I was moving for my job and needed to buy my first home with almost no notice. Melissa got the ball rolling immediately, worked around my schedule to look at houses, and even met me at work to get the papers signed. I couldn't have done it without her.
Melissa did a fantastic job helping me find and purchase my villa. She was patient and understanding while guiding me through the complicated process as a newly single woman purchasing a home on my own for the first time. I couldn't have asked for a better agent!
Found an excellent family to rent my home to. Handled all the details and I have had an excellent experience with my first experience renting out a home that I own. I would highly reccomend Melissa she is very professional and does the best possible job for her clients.
Melissa was amazing to work with. She truly listened to what we wanted and showed us homes in our price range with the features that we wanted. Once we were at a home, she asked meaningful questions to get a feel on what we wanted as we saw each home. When we found our home, she went above and beyond to make sure everyone else involved in the lengthy process got their jobs done. Melissa followed up with us constantly and always kept us updated. During negotiations, she fought for us and guided us along this process. The inspector she suggested is the best in the business as well. Trustworthy, professional, punctual are all words to describe Melissa. We highly recommend her!!
Melissa helped us find our perfect house. She lined us multiple viewings on days we were available to check out houses and helped walk us through the process as first time home buyers. She also worked really well with our mortgage agency and the house seller when we put a contract on our house. She is very good with communication when time matters on contracting a house.
