 “We want to tell you that you are awesome.  You have done an incredible job.  You really are the best real estate agent we have ever worked with.  Thank you for transitioning us into a temporary rental while we figured out where we wanted to be and now you have found us the perfect home!  We couldn’t be happier.”

 “In September 2009, I started to ponder on the possibility of purchasing a house for myself. I had no prior experience, straight out of college and working a full time job. Hence, I was fairly uncertain on how to get started as a first time buyer. Plus, I moved from California to Virginia, which made buying a home in Virginia even more difficult since I was unfamiliar with the surroundings. Fortunately, my company's relocation services recommended agent Melody Novak. Our first meeting was casually held at Starbucks. It was very memorable because I had never expected a real estate agent such personable and respectful. As an interested buyer, I couldn't picture my dream house, the most I could tell Melody was my price range. She suggested condo and townhouse which both sounded good to me. 

First round, she brought me to a variety of homes to expose me to what's available in the market. She made recommendations on what makes the best resale value, what makes a comfortable and safe home, and just simple what she thinks would make me live happily there. I learned A LOT from her, from things to look for when buying a home to knowledge about the real estate market. 

In the end, we came across a condo with a view of the golf course. I was strongly impressed by the view, and Melody could tell. Well, that is the house I'm living in right now :) . Though, buying this home was not as easy as you may think. The seller had requested closing to be completed in 15 days from the day we signed the contract. You probably know, typically it takes 30 days to complete closing on a home. With that restriction, I was certainly nervous about not being able to make that possible. Melody put me in touch with a local lender, Michael Hoffman, who was very professional and efficient. They and I all worked together daily during that 15-day period to ensure that all documents were ready and that all contingencies had been considered. Well, we made it happen. The seller and I closed the purchase 15 days after the contract was accepted. 

That concludes my buying experience, BUT the relationship between Melody and I did not end there. The best thing is, I have made a good friend after this whole process. Melody and I still go out and grab coffee or lunch sometimes. When I have problems, she's always happy to answer any questions I have about my home (painting, remodeling, fixing things here and there, etc). It is my pleasure to endorse Melody on LinkedIn, and I would be happy to talk to any buyer who would be interested in hiring Melody.

 “Melody is always the professional. Her creative energy keeps everyone engaged and moving towards the 'goal.' Melody has helped us purchase two homes for our kids and in both circumstances she was a peach to work with!”

Susan

Melody represented me on the sale of my home.  She was personally interested in my goals and personal time line throughout the entire process.  She had a sound knowledge of the property, block and neighborhood to math the right buyer and seller.  Her recommendations on what was needed to position the home for sale in a competitive market during a Holiday Season.  Melody is honest, caring and a pleasure to work with throughout the selling experience.


Liz

Melody is a terrific realtor!  She provided great advice on pricing, answered a million questions for me and she even helped me with staging my home!  Her incredible networking resulted in a very quick sale for the asking price.  It could not have gone any smoother!


Diane

Melody I loved working with you!  -- you did exactly what everyone would hope for -- you found a home that wasn't even on the market and we were able to snatch it up at a lower-than-expected cost!  I also love your enthusiasm, your spunk and your renovating/decorating knowledge and ideas.  Thanks for a job well done!  We'll be in touch-for future investment properties!


Mike & Allison

Words can’t even begin to describe what a wonderful experience we had with Melody Novak as our realtor! As first time home buyers, we were initially nervous about what to expect. We’d heard stories about how stressful it is to buy a home, but with Melody, it felt almost too easy! She took her time to walk us through the entire process and truly went above and beyond to ensure that everything went smoothly. She helped us negotiate a price we were comfortable with and was there every step of the way after our offer was accepted, from the home inspection through closing. Choosing Melody to be our agent was absolutely the best decision we made in the home-buying process!


Jeannette & Steven

Melody is such a blessing!  She is a very active, attentive, and responsive realtor.  We met Melody when we dreamed of buying a home.  We had some unusual circumstances, which Melody managed completely:  She found us an excellent home, and renters who remained with us for over three years - without any problems.  When we decided to sell our property, we did not bat an eye about who to call:  We knew Melody would help!  During the sell, Melody oversaw several hurdles; arranging contractors, setting appointments, meeting various people at the property, and managing aspects of the situation we never imagined.  We are so blessed she was in control of the situation.  We also contact her when we need work performed on our home:  She eagerly shares her excellent list of qualified, professional, capable, and economical contractors.   Should the time arise for another real estate transaction, we will call her:  She will jump to make our dreams come true!
