What Our Clients Say AboutMelissa Shaheen
Above and Beyond Melissa went above and beyond to help us sell our home! She was always available and helped in so many ways. She was very professional, knowledgeable, and even helped me pack and stage the house! - Carlisle and Linda
Melissa was Wonderful! Melissa was wonderful! I highly recommend her!! I live out of town, and having a realtor as knowledgeable and dependable as Melissa was a godsend. During one of the most difficult times in my life, Melissa went above and beyond to make selling my father's house easy, smooth and low stress. I am beyond grateful for the personal attention I received and am super happy to give Melissa the highest review possible! :) - Tracie Brown Art
Ultimate Professional Melissa was the ultimate professional while selling our family home. My sister and I were quite emotional when we sold the house we grew up in last fall. Melissa was efficient with staging, inspections and the closing. We couldn't have had a better agent. Thank you, Melissa, for your guidance and compassion through a sensitive time. - Deborah Hailes
A Delight to Work With! Melissa helped with the sale of my mother's home which was my sister and my childhood home. Melissa was a delight to work with and was very sensitive to the fact that it was an emotional situation for my sister and me. We had just moved our mother into a home and we were quite a mess. Melissa was great about working around our schedule and was as helpful as she could be. Growing up in the same neighborhood herself, we knew that Melissa had a vast knowledge of the area. It was a very quick sale and Melissa made it as positive an experience as she could. I would recommend Melissa to anyone. She is a sincere, genuine and trustworthy realtor. - Meecostin
Melissa was fantastic! Melissa was fantastic! She helped me with every step of both selling my old home and buying my new home. She helped me prepare my old home for time-efficient sale. She also was a great resource for the services I needed for my new home. - chbgynonc
Refreshing Picture yourself sitting on the beach, toes in the sand, a warm soft breeze on your face, and no care in the world. That is what I experienced. Melissa took charge and I sat back and relaxed. She is professional, knows the market, and is there to make sure you achieve your objective. It was a refreshing experience. - zuser20150902170427599
Melissa is the Very Best of the Best! Melissa Shaheen Berling is the very best of the best Real Estate saleswomen I've had the opportunity to work with and being a former broker in NYC myself I've worked with many. Her knowledge, professionalism, follow thru and her ability to prep a home for sale is extraordinary--especially since our family is out of state. This firm, with various capabilities including legal resources, is superb to work with. Melissa,s personality and energy level made it a joy to work with her. I would recommend her to anyone needing to buy or sell a home. It has been a seamless experience--Thank you, Melissa. - EJK
