If you are a Seller...
If you are a Buyer...
I highly recommend anyone buying or selling to do it through Melinda. The home we were renting out was vandalized and Melinda walked us through the process from filing claims to getting our house on the market. The house was absolutely beautiful when done fixing all the damage from prior tenant and was on the market for one whole day. Melinda is definitely the go to person when you need something done. She knows her job inside and out and we even got more for our house then we expected. I highly recommend Melinda!
We found our new house, listed our house and closed in a month! Melinda worked through Christmas and New Years to make this all happen! We would definitely recommend her as an agent to our friends and would use her in the future.
During trying times and a world pandemic Melinda went above and beyond for me. When the world gave us one hard blow after another I went from having everything to owing everything. I had to sell the house and move. She stuck by me through the continuing stress and headaches. She is an amazing realtor and more importantly an amazing person. I appreciate her so much!!!
I am so glad to have worked with Melinda! I needed a very specific type of property and she looked high and low until she found just what I needed. She worked tirelessly through the whole process with me and I could not have asked for better...Read Full Review
Dan did an amazing job!!! We bought our house while on active duty and moved back to our home of record after getting out but kept our house in NC for a few years. Dan handled everything since we were half way across the country. He coordinated with our property management company and the tenants to get pictures/showings, working with inspectors, and coordinated all repairs. Can't say enough good things about Dan!
Thanks again for everything!!!
I am currently working with her and her partner Dan French. This team is amazing! Melinda came by and took amazing videos in our property. Her partner Dan took amazing drone aerial views of our property and indoor photos. Our house received a full offer on the first day listed. Amazing services.
Ms Highers is absolutely an amazing realtor she kept us informed of every detail during this process. She was both patient and available anytime we had questions or concerns. I would highly recommend to to anyone that wants to sell or buy property .
Melinda was very helpful in all aspects of the homebuying process. As a first time home buyer I was clueless about all the ins and outs of buying a home but she helped me and my wife understand the process and filled us in on all the details of the financing. She was great at finding homes for us to look at that were not only in our price range but also had the features we were looking for. She also handled all the negotiating with the seller and I was satisfied with the results. All in all it was a very stress free process and I'm very happy in my new home.
I'm writing this review on behalf of my Wife, Vanessa and myself. Melinda Highers is a real pro at what she does. I was very skeptical with the home buying process because of a bad experience many years ago. Melinda was very patient, professional and understanding. I am forever grateful and will gladly refer her to everyone I know who's looking to purchase a new home.
I do not write reviews very often, but I couldn’t help but write one for Melinda. She is amazing! Five stars is not enough for what she did for us while selling our home. She exercised great judgment and strong negotiation skills to help get us what we wanted from the sale of our home. Her expertise resulted in our house only being on the market for 6 days! She was very responsive and understanding, which was paramount because we sold our home while living in a different city altogether. She took care of everything for us. She is extremely professional but also personable. She is pleasant and genuine. I could go on and on but I hope I’ve made my point. If someone wants a great real estate agent that you can trust then definitely consider Melinda. You will not be disappointed!
Melinda Highers is the best in the business! She made the process of selling our home seamless for us. Not only does she do business with integrity (which is hard to find these days), she also has a superior level of knowledge, expertise, and connections that get her fast results. She had our home sold 2 weeks after it went on the market. She cares about her clients, has their backs, and prioritizes their needs. We can’t say enough wonderful things about Melinda, we don’t ever want to buy/sell again without her!
Our family had the pleasure of having Melinda Highers as our seller's agent. She become our agent due to another relator having an unfortunate life situation. Melinda took over the selling of our home in a respectable, honest, and yet assertive manner. We found her to be extremely forthcoming and honest. From our perspective, she is a true professional through and through. Melinda showed unwavering dedication, and demonstrated commitment, and impressive negotiation skills. She is very confident and is clearly not afraid to speak up and to advocate for her clients. She works twice as hard (if not more) as she will expect you to, however, her expectations are clearly communicated. She was impressively responsive when we reached out. On multiple occasions it was very apparent that she is well respected by her peers, and the community. I can’t think of a better, more qualified real estate agent to work with. Like many others in our community, we were impacted by the hurricane and other unusual circumstances. During these times, Melinda remained positive and solution focused and she was quick to help and offer possible solutions. We have been grateful to have Melinda by our side to navigate the selling process with us. If you are looking for an agent that is trustworthy, professional, and also has some grit, I would without hesitation recommend Melinda Highers! Melinda, our family wishes you much continued success and happiness.
Melinda was such a blessing to work with! Very professional and showed that she really cared about my family and our needs.. I highly recommend her for your buying or selling of your home!
What can I say. I Love Melinda. She's incredible. Other agents at first, not returning calls or texts in a timely manner, not really demonstrating that they listened to what we said, seemed to not understand us, etc. One day we saw a home we were interested in but instead of telling the agent we were working with, we clicked on Melinda's picture and sent a message. She responded quickly. She listened to what I had to say and was able to articulate back to me a very accurate description, not only of what I was looking for in a home and the community, but also of me, as a person, as in, she understood what kind of person I was and what was important to me. I don't know how else to describe it. She got me like right away. We looked at a good number of homes before finally deciding on the one we wanted. She negotiated for us with the sellers and was able to get us everything we wanted, I mean everything. There were other offers of course, but Melinda came through. We spent so much time working together, trying to find the right home that I got to know her a bit as a person as well. Turns out she has the qualities one would would hope to find in someone they call friend. Truly, she was more like a friend than a real estate agent. To this day, I drop her a line once in a while just to say hi. Even almost a year later, when I had a problem with the home warranty company, she fought on my behalf and went out of her way to help me. For my part, I really feel like I made a friend. I will always keep in touch with her and whenever I buy or sell anything, she's the person I'm going to call. She knows everyone in the area that you might need to talk to for just about any situation. She knows this area like the back of her hand and almost everyone that lives here. She's the best. You'd be lucky if she's your agent. Yup, I'm gushing, I know. But every word is true. She's a good one.
Melinda was fantastic!! Our house was in NC and we live in Okinawa Japan and she made the process very easy for us. House was sold within a couple of days after putting it in the market.
Melinda Highers is an agent that is willing to back you all the way to closing. She was able to navigate a difficult situation when doing a short-sale on my home, AND kept me informed of everything while she coordinated with lawyers, banks, buyers, and others to finish the job. Excellent communication, trustworthiness, commitment, and upfront honesty set Melinda apart from other agents I've worked with. Thank you!
Melinda helped us when we were selling our home. She went above and beyond what I expect from a realtor. She have me great tips on preparing my house for showings and even helped me get my house ready before my first showing. She helped us navigate the extremely competitive market, because at the time the banks unleashed their foreclosures flooding the market. With her experience and advise she helped us make the best financial decision for us and really made me feel like she was 'there' for us and not just anther 'job.' If you're looking to buy or sell I would highly recommend Melinda for your realtor.
Melinda was knowledgeable about both the area and all parts of the home buying process. After looking at all of the options, we chose to buy a foreclosure. This was our first time buying a foreclosure...and Melinda was very knowledgeable and helpful. We ended getting a great deal on the house and everything fit into our timeline.
Our first-time home-buying experience with Melinda was outstanding! She was both professional and reliable, every step of the way. She presented many homes to us, and was attentive to our specific needs. She gave accurate advice and maintained excellent communication, throughout the process. We couldn't have been more satisfied with her services, and we love our home. We would recommend her to anyone who is looking to sell or buy!
She is the best, hands down! Very informative about the process of selling a home. She is super helpful, keeps you up to date with the process, and if you have any questions she is more than willing to answer them. She goes above and beyond what other realtors will do to help you get your home SOLD.
Amazing lady who is by far on top of her game and makes buying or selling a home painless. Give her a little idea as to what your wanting to do and just like that she is on it working side by side with you till it’s done. Wouldn’t use anybody else!
As a first time home buyer, I was nothing short of nervous for the process to begin. I reached out to Melinda because a friend had referred her. She phoned me within the hour and was ready to begin helping me that night. I purchased a short sale and the process took some time, to no fault of hers but she was constantly in touch with me every step of the way easing my mind and reassuring me.
She was so easy to work with and helped me find my perfect home. Almost six months in my new home and I could not be happier! I would recommend her to any house shopper!!
Melinda was very responsive to messages and she did do everything in her power to get working. She was very pleasany to work with. The house she showed was what we were looking for. Good acres on this property.
Melinda worked very hard for months to help us sell our house - it wasn't easy, but she made it happen! We were able to step out of the way and she worked directly with the bank and the buyers, it was great!
Great experience, Melinda guided me through the process, quick to answer any and all questions, available at anytime, eager so sell, made great recommendations for stage and sale. Recommend to anyone selling their home in the Jacksonville NC area.
Amazing realtor. If you need to buy or sell stop your search right now and contact her. I was blown away with the amount of knowledge and hard work that she puts into your listing. She sold my home in a challenging market in no time and I could not have asked for a better experience. I travel for work so I wa a worried the process would be difficult with me always out of town but it truly could not have been easier.
Great attitude. Goes the extra mile to accommodate us. Always with a smile. Open to communicate. Exp k Ainsworth all. Would repeat. Highly recommended.
Melinda Highers handled the sale of property for my family in a very professional and personable manner. Excellent transaction in a very quick time frame. We highly recommend her skills and knowledge to handle property negotiations and transactions
Melinda was just what we needed. She worked hard, was honest with us, and made sure we found our perfect home. She was amazing to us, and was patient through all of our searching and questions. We had to do all of our searching and paperwork from our previous duty station, and she made it all work for us. Found the perfect home at an awesome price.
Excellent realtor who worked tirelessly to sell our house. We were out of state and she did everything for us, to include dealing with our obstinate renters. Highly recommend her.
She is Amazing!!!!! She got my house sold through all the tough objects and me living 4 hours away now. She even found a second buyer within in days after the 1st buyers fell through. She is very Knowledge on the housing market in the area and knows what she's doing. You can't go wrong using her!
We had our home on the market for quite awhile and the last relator wasn't working out at all. Matter of fact, monies were misappropriated on a supposed offer we had. Anyway, we contacted Melinda and from the start she took care of us. The house was put back on the market on a Thursday and by Tuesday of the next week we had a solid offer (full price) and then due to owner requests for repairs, Melinda negotiated for us to get even more for the house to cover the repairs.
Nobody likes to deal with sales people whether they sell cars, insurance or homes; but if I ever have to sell a home again, Melinda is the only person I would trust to handle my business. Thanks Melinda! Great Job!
We had a difficult neighborhood and an even more difficult lender to contend with when trying to sell our home. She was our third realtor and just when we were beginning to lose hope, she showed up and stuck with us through to the end. We couldn't have done it without her professionalism and perseverance.
Thank you so much, Angie! The short sale process can sometimes be confusing and laborious. I'm so glad we got it done! Your diligence made my job easier. Thanks for your loyalty!
Very dedicated, professional and hard worker. Because of her knowledge and willingness to serve, whenever it is appropiate, she is able to move swiftly without sacrificing her integrity and high quality of work.
Thank you so much for the review, Thomas! And thank you for your service, both to our country and our community. It means a lot to not only serve you as a client, but also now call you my friend.
Melinda has been great through our whole process. I really appreciate all she has done for us. Professional and so nice! I have already recommended her to several others who are looking to buy or sell. She will go above and beyond for you.
Thanks for the review, my friend. You stuck it out and met the goals you set out to meet! So glad I was able to help be a part! Can't wait to see what's next!
Melinda is AWESOME! We had a GREAT experience with her while selling our old home and also with the purchase of our new home. Her dedication got us an offer on our home within 3 weeks, not to mention this was in the middle of 2 snow / ice storms! We were also able to close on our new home within this same time frame. Her passion for what she does speaks volumes and this leads to GREAT results for her clients. I have and will continue to recommend Melinda to my friends and family, again she is AWESOME!
Some clients are so loyal you don't know what you would do without them. You're such great friends!
Melinda was very professional when I was starting the selling process of my home in Jacksonville, NC. She went above and beyond what a normal agent would be willing to do for his/her client. She helped me tremendously in the process of getting my home ready for the market. I was deployed for a little bit of this process also, which made it comforting knowing I could count on someone while I was away. I recommend Melinda as an agent, and if I ever come back to NC I would be looking forward to working with her again.
Thanks for the review! Love my job and this business!
Melinda made me feel comfortable, and I knew she was really listening to me when I told her what I was looking for in a house. She helped me find everything I was looking for, and I am very pleased with her service and the new house!
Anniversary is coming up soon! I hope you love your house for years to come! Always, Melinda
