Melissa DeSantis's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with Melissa DeSantis

    • Melissa helped my family relocate from out of state to NJ. She got to know us on a personal and professional level. Knowing us, she used her expertise of the surrounding areas to guide us to a home that met our personality and specific search criteria she was willing to show us anything, but she found a home that met everything! We were so happy there!! Three years later she sold the home for us when we moved. She had it listed and sold immediately. Melissa is very professional, loyal and she will really go to bat for you. We also became friends. I would recommend Melissa hands down to anyone looking to buy or sell. Shes responsive, has an awesome network and no-nonsense. She knows the current market and she will tell you exactly what you need to do to sell the house. She has a great knowledge of the current market and prices.

    • Me and my wife have attended one of many open houses, and there was a lot of offers to assist in finding our dream home. Out of many one really stood out, extremely professional, very knowledgeable, and simply put had an answer for pretty much everything. We as a family mutually agreed that Melissa was the agent that we needed finding our dream home. And we sure made the best choice, this would be our second owned property together, and we simply looked at everything with a microscope, i took us (some time), to find our dream home. And Melissa and her team showed a lot of patience and professionalism. We are very happy and thankful for having so much patience and provide us with the best service every time in our long journey . I will highly suggest to use the services of Melissa to all of my family and friends that are looking to buy or sell there property. And if we decide to purchase or sell in the future, we would only want and ask Melissa and her team to represent us

      - Alex C.
    • Melissa has walked us through not just one, but three sales/purchases! We keep coming back and will definitely use her again because she is honest, diligent, knowledgeable, responsive...and has never left us feeling alone in what can be a very stressful process. Highly recommend!

      - Cyndie M
    • Melissa helped us sell our home and is a consummate professional through and through. She goes above and beyond the call of duty. In a profession full of dishonest people her morals and business practices shine over and beyond the rest. I would recommend her time and time again for these reasons as well as her vast knowledge of Real Estate transactions and the NJ areas she serves. You wont be sorry you chose her.

      - Caryn R
    • Melissa DeSantis worked with us to sell our home. We were faced with some unexpected life events and were about to lose our home to the bank. 5 weeks prior to the sheriff sale on our home we found Melissa online and she assessed the situation. She was able to put us in touch with Real Estate Recovery Group who remarkably were able to provide us with another option. RRG, Melissa and attorney were able to negotiate a short sale on our home which prevented us from foreclosure as well as provide us with relocation assistance monies from the bank. Although it was a difficult process, Melissa guided us through the process and was not only knowledgeable but compassionate to the situation as well. I encourage anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation to reach out to Melissa. She was honest, forthright - a real professional. I would highly recommend working with Melissa and her team - they are excellent!

      - Larry S
    • Melissa DeSantis has the Magic Touch. Once I contacted Melissa to set up a listing appointment, she was very quick to respond. I found Melissa to be professional, extremely thorough and very charming. Before contacting Melissa, my home had been on the market with two other agents. In a matter of two days of listing with Melissa I had a couple of very strong offers and the sale went smoothly. Melissa guided me through the process and kept me feeling at ease the entire time. I felt extremely confident in her. She laid out her marketing strategy specific for my home. Her recommendations for services providers were excellent as well. She was extremely patient and always had time for not only me, but for my extended family as well. Everything was done at MY convenience. Not only did she sell my home, she helped find me a new one. She was always available for me and was extremely honest about the properties she showed me. She never tried to sell me on a house that was not a good fit. Through this process, I have come to consider Melissa part of my family. I would recommend Melissa to my family and closest friends."

      - Phyllis E
    • Working with Melissa was a absolute joy She was kind, caring and knowledgeable.She helped us in every aspect in getting our home sold quickly including having a professional photographer to take pictures to market our home! We would absolutely recommend Melissa to our family and friends!

      - Susan S
    • Working with Melissa to sell my home took much of the usual stress out of the process. Her knowledge of the market was key to pricing my home correctly for sale. She anticipated many of my concerns and kept the lines of communication open throughout the entire process. From first day on the market to day of close, Melissa and her team were there to assist. And because my home was correctly priced, I received three offers during the 12 days it was on the market. Does it get any better than that?

      - Lisa O
    • I like that Melissa was honest and really made us feel like she was working for us and not just looking to make us buy just anything. I mean the fact that she tried to calm us down and not overpay for the house and was willing to just walk away really made us feel comfortable. The process was somewhat frustrating but only because of the types of homes we were looking at compared to the house we just came out of. None of which had anything to do with Melissa, she showed us at least 50 homes. She was on our side and let us know that if we wanted to walk away because of negotiations that it was completely fine and that she was willing to start all over if need be. Knowing that your agent is on your side no matter what and its not just about the money is what it's all about. I have already recommend Melissa to my parents as well as my brother in law which will more than likely move down to the area within the next couple of years.

    • Our experience with Melissa was a very good one during our time selling our home we not only grew to like her but built a very close relationship with her.Our sale was not like your every day sell probably because our home was not your cookie cutter type home combined with the crazy buyers out there today it took effort on both ends but melissa and us got it done.During our listing melissa showed effort,experience,and most of all concern for me and my family.We now enjoy our new chapter in our retired lives in our new home in north carolina and Melissa DeSantis was a part of that.

      - Joseph & Stephanie D
    • Melissa was great. She explained everything as we went along. She recommended a great attorney to help us with the sale. She helped us formulate an asking price to attract buyers in a sluggish market. We had an offer in 4 days. It was a short sale so it took the bank a while to agree, but in the end all worked out great.

      - Leslie C
    • Melissa DeSantis was entirely professional, communicated with us promptly and clearly, and sold our house quickly. She gave us great advice and we'd recommend her highly.

      - Donna S

    • We were very happy with our experience with Melissa. After less than 24 hours on the market, our home was sold. Melissa then helped us find our forever home. She was very patient with us, responsive when we had questions, and provided us with valuable feedback on homes we saw. She was very knowledgeable of the area and current market. We would highly recommend her to anyone.

      - Steve & Stephanie S
    • We listed our home for sale with Melissa. She was always honest and upfront and on top of things. Never pushy and always there when we needed her for questions or concerns. She advertised our home in all the top real estate medias , social media, E-Fliers, etc. I would recommend Melissa to any and all who are looking for a real estate agent who is easy to work with and aggressive in the marketing of their home. A true professional and joy to work with.

      - Roy D
    • Great realtor!! Melissa helped us find a home to buy. She was very knowledgeable and available to us when we wanted to go out and look. Great experience!

      - Samantha E
    • I cannot say enough positive things about working with Melissa. She was attentive to our search criteria and on target with the houses she showed us. She gave us honest and upfront opinions about the pros and cons of everything we looked at and her local market knowledge was irreplaceable when it can to making an offer on our house. She went ABOVE and BEYOND to keep our deal on track from accepted offer to closing, we would not have our dream home without all of her hard work!

      - Kim F
    • Melissa made the home buying process a pleasure! She worked with us for over a year in both the sale and purchase of a home. Once we were ready to list, our house had an accepted offer within days of hitting the market! Melissa worked very patiently with us to find our new home. Every step of the way, Melissa was patient, knowledgeable, and professional. She was always honest, upfront, and well informed. Her knowledge of the area is superb. We recommend her to all of our family and friends!

      - Nicole C
    • Melissa was extremely helpful in listing my tired house for short sale. She was genuine, professional and supportive throughout the process. She was able to explain everything to me and kept in touch by phone and email. I so appreciated her determination to sell the property and made an otherwise difficult situation as simple and pain-free as possible.

      - Sharon O
    • Melissa is a professional, honest, easy to work with and she gets results! It been a pleasure to work with her. I only had one issue when it came to emailing forms the size, clarity, and or format made it difficult to read. I ask her to resend it and no problem.

      - Louise J
    • Ms. DeSantis did an outstand job for us in the selling of our existing home and in the purchase of a short sales which was very challenging, she is extremely knowledgeable in the process. Ms. DeSantis was the most caring realtor we have ever working with, my wife and I highly recommend her.

      - Joseph L
    • Melissa is a rarity in the real estate arena-she's knowledgeable, very accommodating regarding appointments, quick to respond to questions or concerns, and will offer insight and advice without using the high-pressure tactics employed by so many others in real estate. She understands the needs of her client with the ultimate goal being their satisfaction. I would highly recommend Melissa to anyone seeking an agent who is both professional and caring.

      - Colleen P
    • We just moved to the Freehold/Howell area about 3 months ago. Melissa helped us to find our home and we couldnt have been any happier with our choice of agent. Melissa gave us great advice and was right there with us through all the ups and downs of the home buying process. It was truly a pleasure to work with someone who cared and understood exactly what we were looking for from day one.

      - Joseph S.
    • We can't say enough good things about Melissa. We moved to the area 4 years ago. At that time she helped us find a rental home. The following year we were ready to make a purchase. Melissa showed us many homes in the surrounding areas. She was patient and considerate of our needs. She worked out all the details and made things go smoothly. When we were being transferred out of state three years later, there wasn't a doubt in our minds who we'd be calling to sell our home! Melissa had a contract on our house by day two and once again made things run smoothly for us. Not only was Melissa wonderful, but all the people she recommended along the way were fantastic. It was a pleasure working with her and if the future brings us back that way, we'll be calling here again!

      - Scott & Sandy P
    • Melissa listed and sold my and my husband's house in Freehold a few months ago. She is very professional and was always easy to get in touch with via email or by phone and text message. I highly recommend Melissa and would definitely use her again when we're ready to purchase!

      - Thomas M
    • Melissa made the overwhelming task of being a first time homebuyer a truly great experience! She was always available to answer all of our questions (we had tons!) and concerns and showed us house after house until we found a home that was the perfect for for us. Her positive attitude and knowledge of the area (we were from out of state) kept us going throughout the process. Thanks again Melissa!

      - Michael N
    • My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Melissa in 2011 & 2012 when we listed and sold our home. In April 2012, we closed on our new house. In ALL aspects of working with Melissa, she was extremely knowledgeable and professional. It is obvious that she truly loves her profession, and will go above and beyond for her clients

      - Melissa A.
    • As first-home buyers, the minute my fiance and I spoke and met Melissa, we knew that she would find us our dream home, and she did! Melissa was extremely patient, as we drove her a bit crazy, but no matter what - she was accommodating, resourceful, honest, extremely knowledgeable, and available at anytime for the zillions of questions that we had. From start to finish, Melissa worked hard and trust me - we were not easy to work with! But she always was there with a positive attitude and a smile on her face! Melissa explained the entire home buying process, as it was new to us, and with her guidance - everything went smoothly. There is not an agent out there that can top her! Highly recommend Melissa! And Melissa - thank you, again!!

      - Doreen D
    • Melissa was a pleasure to work with, besides being very knowledgeable, she often went out of her way to help you out. I lived out of state before moving to NJ, Melissa was able to show us lots of homes in a short time frame... (Single Saturday she was able show us 11 homes) thank you. When I couldn't be present for the home inspection Melissa volunteered her time to do it for me. Overall she made the home buying experience less stressful.

    • My husband and I bought a house in Freehold in 2009. Melissa DeSantis was our real estate agent. She was really great to work with. We were moving into an unknown town therefore we needed a lot of information about neighbourhoods, schools, etc. Melissa was extremely knowledgeable and honest about the information we needed. She is very pleasant and easy to work work with. Responds to all inquiries very quickly and honestly. I would definitely recommend Melissa DeSantis to be your agent if you need to buy or sell a house.

    • We would not have been able to get thru the impossible process of buying and selling a home without Melissa's help. She was there with us every step of the way. Her experience and knowledge of the area was always impressive and appreciated. In a business where some agents may not be as scrupulous as others you know you can always trust Melissa. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home.

      - David R
    • Melissa DeSantis worked with my family and I to help us sell and buy in Monmouth County. After working with agents in the past I was surprised at how different Melissa was from the other typical realtors. She treated us as if she was working with her own family. She did not try to just "make a deal" but truly cared about what was best for us and helped us with the entire process along the way. Melissa and her team are one in a million. I would like to recommend Melissa DeSantis to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. You will not be disappointed.

She's sharp, friendly and very professional operating with a talented team that uses result oriented technology & people network that brings buyers. The quality of her listing - pictures, content, webpage, videos & brochures were truly exceptional and accurate.

There was never a time I had any questions or had to wait. We were able to look for homes online and Melissa was able to get appointment right away to see them. The Marketing was top-notch. Professional pictures were taken immediately. She also helping to de-clutter our home and get it ready for showing. Melissa was very realistic on the homes value and it sold quickly. I have recommended Melissa and will continue to do so!

      - Michelle Young
    • Melissa DeSantis is an absolutely AMAZING Real Estate Agent, definitely one in a million! I have worked with Melissa on the selling of 1 home and the purchasing of 2 homes and every experience was positive. Even through challenges during the processes that had nothing to do with Melissa, she made my needs a top priority. She is skilled and savvy in negotiating for the successful purchase of a new home and extremely dedicated, proactive and creative in her marketing and all relevant solutions for a successful home sale. Melissa has been in my experiences, stellar in her showcasing of homes immediately upon signing on with her through professionally sophisticated videos far beyond a "virtual tour". I would highly and solely recommend Melissa for an exceptionally positive home buying and selling experience!

      - Kelly Hostinsky
    • Melissa DeSantis and her whole team including Correne and Randy were just an absolute pleasure to work with. Melissa and her team never had us wait for more than an hour for a response and always had several different ways to address any issue that arose. I would definitely have Melissa sell or buy any home for us in the futur

      - Pete and Maria Baralus
    • This is my 2nd real estate transaction with Melissa From beginning to end she and her associate Randy were on point. Even when we thought we had lost the house to another buyer, she submitted a letter to the Sellers that got our foot in the door and the keys to our new home. Don't hesitate to contact Melissa or her associate Randy. You won't be disappointed

      - Beverly Auz
    • We worked with Melissa and her team on many deals including traditional sales, short sales and foreclosure properties. She always does an unbelievable job. She has never steered us in the wrong direction. Over the years we've used other Realtors in the central New Jersey area and found she is by far the best! Whether you're buying or selling I would highly recommend you give Melissa a call first.

      - Sean and Lisa Leavy
    • Melissa was great to work with. I would def recommend her to any friends and family looking to move in the area. She went above and beyond through the whole process and looked out for us in the buying of our new home

      - Sergio & Nicole C.
    • I found Melissa though a friend and Im so glad she was able to help us sell our home that we have lived in for almost 50 years. We had a wonderful experience with her. She was very knowledgeable and was able to deal with my mom who was very scared to sell. I would highly recommend her to everyone I know. Thank you

      - Tina Murray
    • Melissa has assisted not only me but my entire family in relocating all us to the central jersey area! She was amazing to work with. If your looking for a trustworthy hard working person to help you in purchasing a home, look no further because this was by far the easiest home purchase process ever and that was all because of Melissa and her hard working team!

      - Rich Ramos
    • Melissa fulfilled all the promises she made when we signed the contract with her. We were selling our mothers house, and due to distance and professional commitments it was difficult to checkup on the vacant house while it was on the market. It was great to have Melissa and her team to help!

      - Gail S.
    • Melissa is the BEST in the business! I already have recommended her over and over and will continue to do so. Every time my husband and i hear someone is thinking of moving to the area the first thing we say is "we have the best agent for you". She is fair and honest. If you ask an opinion on a house she will give you a real answer, not just try to sell you. She doesn't rush the process and spent time showing us houses we wanted to see even though she knew we wouldn't buy them. She was helpful in hooking us up with other service providers in the area, like a closing lawyer and 5 years later continues to be helpful for area advice, whether it be schools or restaurants. A relationship that will last forever!
