REALTOR – Born and raised on the Northern Beaches of Sydney Australia, Melinda grew up in a Real Estate investing family. Her Mother frequently purchased rental properties, or investment properties to renovate and resell – or ‘flip’ as it’s known here. As a young adult, Melinda began to join her Mom in her Real Estate ventures, bringing a keen eye to the renovation and remodeling aspects of the flipping process.
If I could give 6 (or more) stars I would! My husband and I had not bought or sold a home in 15 years and didn’t know who to call. We were given a referral to Melinda with Cesi Pagano & Associates and thank goodness we did! Melinda had done her work even before meeting with us for the first time. She had prepared a full overview of our neighborhood, recent sales, and told us what to expect with our sale, how the market worked during this time of year (mid-winter), and what our house could be expected to sell for. She was spot on with every aspect! I was even more impressed with the ‘behind the scenes’ team. Julie was great helping us get the house ready for photos. And the photos! Good photos of a home make a sale, and the quality of the photographer was amazing. As were the marketing materials themselves… But all of this couldn’t have happened without Melinda! She really listened during our first meeting and got to know us as people. She was always available to us. (And if she couldn’t take our call, she texted to tell us she got our call and would return it as soon as possible.) Selling a house is a big deal, and emotional. Melinda was the calm in the storm. She was never without answers, or a shoulder to lean on. One of her greatest strengths though was how professionally she treated EVERYONE during this sale. This included the buying agent, her clients, home inspectors, appraisers, escrow officers, etc. She even took the time to personally go out and introduce herself to the selling agent where we were purchasing our new home!”
