"Melissa helped me find a new home and sell my previous one. She is not only extremely professional and knowledgeable, she is a kind and friendly person who goes beyond what is expected. Her advice when it came to pricing my home, presenting my home, and dealing with offers was spot on. I got two good offers after nine days on the market."

""Melissa is an outstanding realtor. Our search process was quite lengthy, and since we were dealing with FHA loan requirements, it was not exactly the most painless, simple process, either. Melissa was extremely patient, professional and had a great sense of humor throughout. My husband and I were not Melissa's sole clients, but she truly made us feel like we were number one in her book.""

""Ms. Utterback was nothing short of perfect. My husband and I are newlyweds that were looking for first time home ownership. Ms. Utterback helped us through every process explaining each detail to the fullest. She never made us feel like we had to ask, she just had the information and answers there for us. She gave us honest answers and guidance, which was much needed as we were "fresh" to the process. Ms. Utterback was available at all times. Whether it was phone, text, email, or in office visits Ms. Utterback was there when we were available. Please consider Ms. Utterback highly as your real estate professional, we are so glad we did!" "

""Melissa was recommended as specializing in the Maumee area where my house was. I had previously had the house on the market with another agent from a different agency for 6 months with no results. Melissa listed the house and had a couple of open houses. One which was not scheduled, but she had some free time on that Sunday so decided to give it a shot. (Which brought in a potential buyer who later made an offer!) Within 2 months, we had 2 offers on the same day!! I didn't worry about the negotiations at all. I trusted Melissa 100% to do what was in my best interest. I have recommended Melissa to family, friends and clients. The next time I decide to buy a house, I will definitely give Melissa a call!""

""We loved working with Melissa and we have moved many times in the last eight years due to military moves, therefore we have had more than the normal interactions with realtors in this crazy housing market. Melissa was honest and truly had our best intentions at heart. She even would point out flaws with homes that we looked at that we may have overlooked. She also respected our budget, not showing us homes that we would love but couldn't afford. Instead she found us a home we love and could afford!! We were very, very impressed with all the research she did and provided us with when we had to determine our offering price and seemed to have a very professional role when working with the listing agent. If we have to move again, we have no doubt we would ask Melissa to help us sell our house!!""

May 27, 2009


""Melissa is everything you would want in an agent and more. We had been looking for a home for quite some time and Melissa was patient and professional throughout our journey. As first time home buyers, her knowledge and expertise really made the difference. I have recommended Melissa to many friends because I know that she will treat them exactly how she treated us - like we were her only clients and a member of her family. I would highly recommend Melissa as an agent - She is honest, trustworthy, and truly wants the best for her clients. Because of our experience, Melissa has become our Realtor for life!""

"Great advice and direction in the selling process while at the same time respecting my decisions. In the buying process, very patient; she took the time to evaluate and compare the properties, addressing my concerns and future needs. Very knowledgeable regarding structure, mechanics, likelihood of replacement and/or repairs, and return on potential renovations. She kept me focused on my needs and priorities rather than allowing me to be taken with certain details or amenities of various properties."

"Melissa is a wonderful realtor to work with. She was very knowledgeable about real estate in our area and helped us price our home in a way that made us happy and helped it sell fast. In fact, it sold within a few days! She knew how to list it to build excitement in the market and gave us a lot of tips on getting it ready for sale. She made negotiating less stressful and gave great advise that got us more money in the end. She led us through all the ins and out of the real estate process and helped us be confident about each step. Melissa's calm and professional attitude made the sale of our home about as easy as it gets. I would highly recommend her."

"Melissa was the third realtor we met, and we knew right away that she was the perfect person to sell our Maumee bungalow. She demonstrated a higher level of knowledge about smaller Maumee homes and comparable properties in our area. She also had a systematic way of helping us price our home. Once we agreed to work with Melissa, she quickly created a portfolio that represented our home beautifully. She was always prompt in getting back with us and flexible in doing so, whether is was thru text, email, an electronic signature, or a phone call. What we liked most about Melissa, however, was how she always shared options and recommendations and was not afraid to give us her point of view (e.g., saying no to an offer). We really enjoyed Melissa and highly recommend her!"

"This is the second house that Melissa helped me buy and she made it a great experience. She took her time and helped me view several houses before matching me with the one that was right for me. She was incredibly patient and helpful with all my questions and made sure I understood what was going on. She also was very helpful selling my old house and even managed to help me quickly sell it in winter. I will definitely work with Melissa again and recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house."
