“As a first time home buyer, we were looking for a realtor that was both knowledgeable and patient.

Melissa proved to be that and much, much more! Melissa answered every question we had, making our home purchase process fun and easy. Melissa made herself available to us; responding to our emails, texts and phone calls within minutes. Her professionalism, honesty and positive personality will not disappoint you!”

Don and Lara R

We hired Melissa in late 2017 and were moving from California to Raleigh.

Our experience was unique In that we bought our house sight unseen. This was not be design. We toured 10-15 houses with Melissa in person so she knew what we were looking for. When another house fell through (due to a seller that was the absolute worst), we asked Melissa to tour our current house. We have to hand it to her for trying her best to work with such an unreasonable person on that that initial transaction but we are glad that transaction fell through. For the new house, she did a facetime tour and took additional photos and we decided that this house was the one. She pointed out all of the intangibles about the location, schools, etc. that really made a huge impact on our decision. This transaction went extremely smoothly and we bought an amazing house in an amazing neighborhood. Now that we are in a pandemic and many people are buying sight unseen, our experience becomes extremely relevant. We highly recommend Melissa!

Melissa is a great person to work with.

I was previously apart of a networking group with her. Loved how she presented herself and going above and beyond her call of duty as a realtor. When I was ready to sell my home, i knew without a doubt I would hire her to do so. She is very diligent in her efforts in making certain that you understand your rights as a seller and the expectations of things that goes along with selling a home.

Melissa Elliott had the impossible tasks of selling our home in an area that was pretty stagnant in regards to home sales.

We had previously signed with an agent for 12 months.. The one who claimed to be ahead of the curve with the "Coming Soon" slogan and repeated advertisements on the radio and TV. After two failed attempts of our home being under contract and then falling through, we were referred to Melissa Elliott by a family friend. Thank goodness we met her! Our initial meeting with Melissa was very impressive. Instead of telling us of how difficult it would be to sell our home, she listened to our needs, how things had progressed previously with our former agent and where we wanted to be in the future. She never pressured us to move forward with signing an agreement but rather wanted to make sure we were comfortable and completely understood what she could offer us. Once we agreed to move forward, Melissa was on the ball getting the appraisal completed, professional photos scheduled, and an open house event scheduled all along ensuring we were aware of what she was doing to get our home sold. We were impressed that Melissa kept in touch sometimes daily to keep us updated of potential showings and was always available for any questions we had along the way. After a little over two months, we were under contract. And although the buyers' agent was quite difficult to deal with, Melissa kept her cool and saw us through the sale of our home and into our new one. Melissa had made what we believed was impossible, possible and we were soon moving on our way to where we wanted to be. We believe Melissa has the best program to get your home sold with a thorough knowledge of the real estate market in the communities she serves. Even though we have been in our new home since January, Melissa keeps in touch with us. This truly demonstrates the importance of those relationships that she builds and how much she appreciates you as her clients. She is an impeccable agent; one who we without a doubt recommend to those wanting to sell their home with a trusted, caring, reputable professional.

Melissa was wonderful to work with!

She listened carefully to our interests and was able to guide us towards touring homes that met our criteria. She’s very knowledgeable and honest and was very good at sharing everything she knew and noticed about a home, including both pros and cons. In a highly competitive seller’s market, she kept our best interests in mind and advocated for us with the seller’s agent.

Melissa helped me to sell my house, assisted me in finding a rental until I was ready to buy again.

She tells it like it is when you are selling. We did everything she told us to, our house sold quickly. Buying a house: all I had to tell her was what specifically I was looking for & she kept looking & sending me emails of houses until the perfect one came along. I'm a divorced single mom, she helped me through the whole buying process that I had NEVER done by myself. She made sure I understood & that I got what I wanted. She's AWESOME!!! THX MELISSA

Melissa was extremely helpful from day one with selling our house and has continued throughout the process of building our new home.

She has gone above and beyond helping us prepare our home to be sold and advertising. We struggled selling our house with it being on the market for 6 months, feeling very frustrated and defeated we removed it from the market. In March we decided to try again and found Melissa through a referral. Melissa sold our house in 2 days at an open house. The process of selling our home was simple thanks to Melissa! With her experience and knowledge, she was able to offer great advice (things we definitely would not have known to look for or ask) with looking for a new home and building. We decided to build and would never have attempted this without her by our side! She was extremely helpful throughout the entire building process. We highly recommend Melissa to anyone!!

Matt and Kristen W

Melissa was more than accommodating when I needed to view homes new to the market on my tight work schedule, even when that included making late night appointments or those early on a weekend morning.

When I ultimately decided on a new construction home, she was there every step of the way, all the way down to helping me pick out my interior color schemes.

When you need a house sold in the Raleigh area, Melissa Elliott is the one for the job!

She recently sold my parent’s home after they moved into a retirement community. She has fantastic partners she works with who assisted my parents in selecting items to take with them, moved them and took care of the rest. Melissa worked very hard to get the best price for their house and kept my parents abreast of all activity. Any bumps in the process were handled quickly, professionally and with respect to my aging parents. It certainly took a load off me and my brothers. Thanks Melissa for all you did to make this as easy as possible.

Richard W

We are a senior couple in our 70's, Married for 50 years.

We lived in a two- story house that was no longer working for us. To utilize the second floor, we had to climb up and down the stairs. Age and a health condition stole my agility which increased the probability I would eventually fall down the stairs. We decided to sell our two-story house and buy a Ranch house instead. The night I made that decision I slept like a lamb in bed. We wanted a realtor, The best realtor in town. We hired Melissa Elliott. She took good care of us, She didn’t let us down. She helped us with the purchase and sale of our homes. She was the best. When issues came up, she addressed them with a high degree of credibility, and handled them with care. I highly recommend Melissa!

David and Betty W

Melissa was amazing to work with!

She is very outgoing and knowledgeable in her field. We have bought and sold homes over the years with different realtors, but this was by far the best experience we have had with a realtor! I didn't have to worry whether things were being taken care of because she was so proactive at every step, without being pushy about anything. She was consistently easy to contact and responsive to any issues that came up. We built a home this time around and it was our first experience with building. We had a major problem with the house that went undetected through the process due to no fault of hers or the inspector. We contacted her for advice in how to resolve the issue because it went so far beyond the scope of typical warranty repairs. We didn't expect much since we had already closed on the home and her job was really “done” at that point. Not only did she walk with us through each step of resolution, but she was very proactive and took the initiative to contact the builder herself. Her expertise helped significantly in negotiating a very difficult repair. The builder immediately responded and handled every detail in a timely manner. I think her focus on relationships is what ultimately has lead to her success as a realtor. We will definitely call her in the future for any real estate needs!

Kim H

We hired Melissa to sell our house in North Carolina.

We lived out of state so we needed someone who could work with us who was honest and who would have our best interest at hand. She always got back to us in a timely manner as well as answered all our questions we had. She was kind and patient. She worked with our budget and gave us the best recommendations when it came to making the house presentable to buyers. She presented the house beautifully on the internet and had it listed in a timely manner. Her services were above and beyond what we expected. If you want someone who is going to work hard to sell your house, Melissa Elliott is perfect. You won’t be disappointed.

Vanessa S

Melissa is simply AMAZING!

She made my home buying process stress free as she educated and guided me throughout the entire process. She was easily accessible when I had questions. I must admit I’m extremely picky and Melissa was very patient as she helped my “Home ownership in NC” dream come true. She also has a special gift of paying attention to the little details.

Morris W

Melissa made herself very available to show me the houses when I was able to.

I'm very happy with the house she got me!

Joe K

Melissa was so pro-active when we were selling our house.

She explained everything clearly and left no doubt about any details. The staging process was awesome, as were the pictures. We had our open house on a Saturday and the first offer came in on Monday. She made this process so smooth and effortless. Also, she went to bat for us when the buyer's agent was dragging his feet. She then turned us on to the Flowers Plantation area when we were house hunting and we now reside there very happily. Not only is Melissa a good agent, but a kind and wonderful person! Highly recommend working with her!

Gilly C

Kevin and Deb B

It was a pleasure and a joy to work with Melissa.

She was untiring in her efforts to find the right home for our family. She took a significant amount of time in understanding our needs and very ably translated them into a flexible but highly focused strategy. Melissa first helped us identify the neighborhoods which best suited our needs and then showed us several houses which met our initial criteria. Once we decided on our choice, she tirelessly worked with us answering numerous questions and serving as a persistent liaison with the seller’s realtor. Her real strengths during this process were her fabulous communication skills and relentless pursuit of answers and solutions to any problem that arose. There were numerous steps all through the buying process that Melissa expertly guided us through, always exhibiting a professional touch and a smile, including addressing all of our questions to the seller’s realtor and aptly interpreting those responses from the seller. Result: we were able to buy the house of our dreams! Melissa’s expertise with and referrals of competent local contractors have made this buying experience extremely pleasant and unmatched throughout our thirty years of buying and selling real estate. We highly recommend Melissa to anyone looking to buy or sell their home in the Raleigh area. You won’t be disappointed with her knowledge of the industry or her communication and expert negotiation skills! She’s the best!

5 stars is right!

This team is very professional. They helped me buy a rental property that is cash flow positive and growing in value. They really know the market.

Mike C

Melissa is a great Real Estate Agent.

She is patient, knowledgeable, and helpful through the entire process. On top of that, their App really helped me find the neighborhood where I made an offer. I was able to search for homes while out and about and message Melissa in the app for those properties I had an interest in seeing. I also like that it only shows truly active listings, so I didn’t waste my time on homes under contract. What a great experience working with Melissa.

David W Jr

We are extremely grateful we worked with Melissa at Elliot Realty.

She was a true professional and empathetic during challenging times. Melissa was there for us every step of the way, even while traveling with her family she was there for ours. We could and always have been able to count on Melissa. She has the experience and expertises in the RDU area to provide confidence and reassurance in the value of your home. We highly recommend Melissa and Elliot Realty for a great home selling experience.

Brandy Y

One of the best referrals we’ve gotten to date.

Melissa was great to work with and relieved much of the stress of finding and buying our new home – especially as we were moving across country and didn’t really know the area. She was attentive and carefully listened to our needs and wants and helped us narrow down the search. We really appreciated her clearing her schedule to work with us over the couple days we had to view and ultimately pick a home…and the buying process itself was easy with her attention to detail and coordinating the various moving parts. We’d highly recommend Melissa to anyone in need of a knowledgeable, personable, and even patient agent.

Mark M

Melissa Elliott helped navigate us through buying our first home in the Cary area.

She was extremely helpful, knowledgeable about the area, responsive and accommodating for our unusual schedules, and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend her highly.

John H

We were extremely lucky to choose Melissa Elliott for our realtor!

She was so knowledgeable and patient with us as we started house hunting in North Carolina! We looked at many homes and decided to build a brand new house instead! She referred us to a builder and we are now settled in our new home! Melissa was such a help from start to finish and we would certainly recommend her with a “Five Star” rating! She still checks in on us to see if there is anything further she can do for us!!! She was & still is such a pleasure to work with!

Phil and Marge K

Melissa is the most heartfelt and intelligent realtor around; from being willing to meet with me and my fiancé from day one of us having no idea we even wanted to buy a house or knowing anything about owning a house, to even now still checking in with us after closing to make sure everything was just as we had hoped, Melissa does it all!

She was able to help us narrow down what was most important to us and help us find that within our budget. She was also willing to answer any and all questions, big and small, we had about the process along the way. And lastly, she is just a genuine human being—kind, patient, and understanding. She will be our go-to person in future house buying or selling and our referral to anyone thinking about buying a home in the area!

Jessica R

Melissa went ABOVE AND BEYOND throughout the home sale.

We met in November of 2021 with an undetermined time for listing. We were coordinating all this from out of state, so her list of contractors from movers to plumbers to electricians, etc. was invaluable. She was professional, compassionate and so understanding of all the moving parts of selling my mom's home that she had lived in for 30 years. We can't say enough about how truly we appreciated all her efforts and her quick response on everything. I would give her 10 stars if that was an option. Thank you Melissa.

Susan T

We used Melissa as our Realtor.

She was patient with our hectic timeline for selling our home & patient again when it came to finding our new home. She fought for us when it was necessary and talked me off the ledge several times when our closing was pushed back. In fact I fully believe if it wasn't for Melissa it would have taken a lot longer to close on our home. She was amazing! I know several realtors and Melissa is my first referral to anyone who is in need of a realtor.

Jennifer W

Melissa is amazing to work with.

She is very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire process. Melissa was very proactive from the time we made an offer to the time we closed. We will be working with Melissa in the future and highly recommend her. Thank you Melissa!

Kim F

When I first contacted Melissa, I didn't know the first thing about buying a home.

But she did a good job walking me through the process and coordinating with the seller, the inspections, and the other companies that were involved. Especially with such a small window of time; I think the entire process took only about 45 days in my case. Melissa went so far as to work around my schedule, and even after the deal had closed, she continued to answer my questions relating to home ownership.
