Client Testimonials

“After working with Melissa on two recent real estate transactions, I would never again consider using anyone else. Melissa has shown commitment to her clients, impressing us time and time again with her extraordinary understanding of everything real estate related. Her analytical skills, attention to detail, marketing expertise, and motivation set her aside from the start. Her understanding of any problems presented is reflected in the sound solutions she offers, which are always reinforced with extensive research and reliable data. She’s committed to excellence and highly motivated to succeed. I can’t say enough positive about Melissa, it’s with great pleasure I call her my friend and my realtor.”
- Ginger A.
“Melissa is a rarity amongst realtors. Not only does she have an exceptional knowledge of the industry, enormous experience and empathetic people skills - she has an amazing ‘can do’ attitude that makes things happen and delivers outstanding results. I cannot recommend Melissa highly enough.”
- Alex S.
“Melissa was great to work with and we have already recommended her to other friends. She is organized, proactive, and motivated, and always had our interests in mind. Since we were new to the Austin area, she went above and beyond to make sure that we understood the neighborhoods and the local market dynamics. Additionally, she was repeatedly able to offer solutions to complications arising from the fact that our home’s sellers were residing in Europe. We would love to work with her again in the future.”
- Joel L.
“It has been a real pleasure to work with Melissa as our realtor. She made the viewings fun and was always full of great ideas within each property. She negotiated very well on our behalf whilst always remaining utterly professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Melissa to anyone looking for an enthusiastic, energetic and professional realtor.”
- Julie S.
“It was truly a pleasure working with Melissa on our resent purchase. Although it wasn’t a ‘normal’ transaction, the property was unrepresented, she handled the transaction with professionalism and grace. The quality of the service we received was extraordinary, timely and satisfying. Every deal can pose obstacles and possible pitfalls, she was able to guide us around them all to a trouble free close. We love our new home, made possible because of the “top of market” price we received in the sale of our existing home, thanks to Melissa. Her coordination made it possible for us to close on the sale and the purchased new home with no gaps, making for a single move, sweet! An absolute pleasure to work with, recommend without reservation.”

My husband and I recently moved to Austin, and having purchased homes before, knew the importance of a good realtor. We were so lucky to find Melissa! She is knowledgeable about real estate and the Austin market, but more importantly, she is passionate about connecting her clients to the right property. I really felt like she had our best interests at heart. She found us the perfect place, knew exactly how to get our offer accepted and even hand-held us through the loan process. I really recommend calling her if you are looking for an Austin realtor.

Melissa is far and away the most competent and knowledgeable realtor I've ever worked with. My one criteria was a home office, and she always brought me listings with those in mind, and got me the perfect setup after only a few tries. Our transaction was extremely complicated due to my husband being sent out of town unexpectedly. Melissa was able to keep all sides, including mine, calm and happy amid the chaos of a delayed closing. Knowing that this was (and still is) my dream house, Melissa did not let me give up hope, and in the end, we had a closing that was, without exaggeration, a miracle! She remains an invaluable resource and friend a year after our purchase.
- Diana G.
A year after we bought our home Melissa continues to help with interior design and send us contact info from her golden rolodex of contractors/vendors. It is clear Melissa has built strong relationships with a large network of brokers - during the 80+ houses she showed us she would make it a point to follow up with each agent providing feedback, a small touch but one that has clearly worked - Melissa got us into multiple homes requiring advanced notice, pocket listings and pre-listings not available to be seen with few minutes notice as my wife and I kept expanding the "viewing list."
- Avant H.
Melissa recently represented us in the marketing and sale of our home in the Westlake area, and was able to accomplish what two prior highly qualified listing agents could not - a closed sale at the price we wanted. Our property had been on and off the market for a couple of years and had a very unique layout. Rather than seeing these challenges as obstacles, Melissa was creative and flexible with her marketing strategy, and simply persevered until she was able to deliver superior results. Melissa's knowledge of market activity and trends goes well beyond the standard online research any realtor can offer - she is seasoned and "in the know" on Austin real estate, and has credible market analysis to support her recommendations. In addition, the customer service went above and beyond even what we expected from Kuper Sotheby's - as long distance sellers, Melissa was incredibly helpful in coordinating contractors, inspectors, etc., throughout the sales process, keeping us informed of even minor details. As a seller, I can not recommend Melissa highly enough.
