Testimonials

Melanie was great to work with! She got me started with looking at condos within a few days of contacting her. She seemed very knowledgeable about the Chicago market, especially in the neighborhood I was looking at. She asked good questions about the different places we saw and made sure that HOA was in good financial condition. This was my first time buying a condo, so I was very happy she asked these questions and made me aware of what to look out for. During the negotiation, she was able to help me get the selling price down as well as negotiate a small closing credit. A few days after the seller accepted my offer, I came across another condo that I thought I might like more. She encouraged me to go check it out to be sure that I was certain about the condo I had already made an offer on. She understood that this was a very big decision and wanted me to be sure about my choice and answered my different questions along the way. I ultimately decided that the condo I had already made an offer on was the right one. During the closing process there was some confusion around the closing date between the attorneys, and she talked with the seller’s agent to clear up the misunderstanding and make sure everyone was on the same page. She was there for the inspection, the final walk through, and the closing and was also available to answer my calls, texts, and emails throughout the entire process. She was wonderful to work with, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a condo in the city, especially if it is your first time buying a place.

I had a rough go with finding a condominium in Chicago.  My coworker saw my struggles and recommended I use her realtor, Melanie. After just a short conversation with Melanie she could already read my taste in condo's and was sending me links to condo's that matched all my criteria.  At my first showing with Melanie, she was able to read me like a book. She noted I was not thrilled even though I was saying the place looked nice and she reinforced that she wanted to make sure I love the place I am buying. I felt that I could trust Melanie. She was very patient with me! After a few months of looking, we found a place I loved. I was very overwhelmed with everything I needed to do within the first week of the acceptance of my offer, but Melanie did a great job making sure I kept calm. She provided me with many great recommendations. The process was bumpy, but Melanie was there for every step guiding me through it. I purchased a condo I love and Melanie was instrumental in it. I still text Melanie with questions or comment on her cool instagram posts. If you are a first time buyer or on to your next home, Melanie is the perfect real estate agent for you!

-- Dan W. 

Melanie made selling my condo easy and was fantastic throughout the whole process. She set up the photos, connected me with a great real estate lawyer, and presented the listing so well I wished I could've bought it myself!

Thanks for all your help Melanie!

-- James F.

Melanie is an excellent realtor! She helped me through every step of purchasing my first condo. She was informative, patient and very easy to work with. She hastily answered any questions I had along the way and I am especially grateful for her guidance through the bidding process. Trusting someone with such a huge purchase can be scary, but I would highly recommend Melanie to anyone looking to purchase a property, she really knows the industry and is friendly and personable. Thanks again, Melanie!

-- Justyna S. 

I would highly recommend anyone looking to purchase a home to contact Melanie! As first time homebuyers, Melanie was there to help us through every step of the home buying process and was always quick to offer advice and answer all of our questions. She will hop on the phone with you anytime. She   is very down to earth and kind (always appreciated in a realtor). Not only was she a great resource, she provided us with amazing lender and attorney recommendations. We recently closed on our first condo and it was with Melanie's help that we negotiated a great price. We will definitely be using Melanie for our future Chicago home purchases!

-- Katherine H.

Melanie helped me in navigating my first home purchase process, which had a little unorthodox start. Everything happened in a matter of a week +, and making all life-changing big decisions in such a short period of time really stressed me out. Melanie patiently listened through my concerns and   sensitivities around my situation and made sure that I am comfortable with my decisions. She is a hard-working young and energetic agent yet has great confidence in her experience. I highly recommend Melanie if you want your dream a reality!

-- Makoto M.

We met Melanie at one of her "So You Want to Buy a Condo" seminars in October 2015. And even though we thought we were still two years away from buying our first home, we came away with plenty of pointers and some wonderful people we knew we'd be calling upon when the time came - Melanie and Chris aka "The Dream Team." Fast-forward about a year, and we found ourselves contemplating putting in an offer on a home. Thanks to Melanie's research and counseling, we realized the deal in front of us and put in a highly competitive offer (that was still well within our budget), and it was accepted. By comparison, we didn't spent a great deal of time looking at homes with Melanie, but she expertly maneuvered us through the offer and closing process (and even helped us break our lease efficiently), and for that we are extremely grateful. We would not hesitate to recommend Melanie to anybody in search of their next home.

-- Jerel B.

Melanie is a tenacious realtor and a truly genuine person. She definitely knows her stuff, especially when it comes to first-time homebuyers like me! I quickly discovered I knew nothing about the Chicago condo market (monthly assessments, HOA reserves, owner-occupancy rules, etc.). Melanie was patient and responsive with my 1,000 questions and looked out for my best interest throughout the entire condo-buying process. She does not disappoint!

-- Jenna D.

My experience with Melanie was excellent. She was a very responsive and accommodating agent. Even after months of searching she was always enthusiastic about looking at new properties. During a tough negotiating process she provided a lot of great advice and guidance. Overall I was very satisfied and happy that she was able to help me find my perfect home!

-- Joe K.

Melanie guided me through the biggest purchase of my life, and I am so grateful! Before entering the homebuying process, I thought your agent just guided you through showings -- the fun stuff. There's so much more! She was an expert at helping me (and my attorney) negotiate, a friendly face during   the home inspection, and knows the process inside and out. If you're looking to buy in Chicago, especially if you are a first-time homebuyer, Melanie is your girl!

-- Sarah O.

Melanie was so amazing! She specializes in first time home buyers and she was a great resource for all the new things involved in purchasing a home. I can't recommend her enough.

-- Michael A.

Melanie was an awesome Realtor! Any time I had a question or concern she was on top of it. I knew I would get a response in a heartbeat. Also, her knowledge of the Chicago neighborhoods was very helpful. Once I knew what I was looking for, we were able to find properties and condos to view. I would definitely recommend Melanie as a realtor to anyone who is looking.

-- Joe R.

Melanie was amazing to work with. After 6-7 months of searching and multiple offers, we thought that Mel would have been sick of us, but she stuck with us till we finally landed our new home. Melanie was such a pleasure to work with. Melanie always got back to us very quickly with anything that we had questions about, and we could totally tell that she was fighting hard in our corner throughout the whole process. We would recommended her to anyone looking for a place in Chicago.

-- Clarissa B. 

We were referred to Melanie by a friend, and after our experience with her, we would GLADLY refer her to anyone! Melanie was basically on call for us throughout our home-buying experience. She even put together the bid for our home while she was out of town celebrating her birthday because we had   to have it in! Melanie goes above and beyond checking in with her clients and making sure every last detail is being checked. She also provided great advice for counter-offering, which lead to us saving money and winning the bid! We will be repeat clients of hers when we want to upgrade to a larger home in the future!! MELANIE IS THE BEST!

-- Phil H.

I couldn't have been more pleased or impressed with how quickly and diligently Melanie worked from start to finish. The entire process was completed in no time. She was also very kind and helpful. Even my new tenet took note and expressed how she would like to work with Melanie in the future. I would absolutely recommend Melanie to anyone looking to buy, sell, or rent.

-- J.C. B.

Melanie made the home buying process clear to understand and very smooth.  I had a narrow timeframe and Melanie was able to accommodate my schedule nicely.  I am very glad I went through Melanie for my real estate needs!

-- Akina T. 


Melanie was an incredible asset during the purchase of my first home. Her enthusiasm, positivity, and sense of humor were all very helpful and necessary during the long process of trying to find the perfect condo. She relates very well to younger, first time buyers in a way that helps them feel relaxed and comfortable during a trying process.

-- Drew L.

Melanie has mastered the delicate balance of being a professional, a friend and a trusted advisor. We were lucky beneficiaries of her skill set. She took time to understand exactly what we were looking for and catered her services to specifically meet our needs. She showed us condos all over Chicago, and helped us find the artist's loft we were looking for in Printer's Row: high ceilings, close to work, soaring windows, and a nice neighborhood feel. Each place we visited, she gave us some great insight and advice. At the closing, the seller threw a couple more headaches at us, but she was able to coordinate with the seller's agent and helped us work out a creative deal to keep the contract alive.

-- Dave B.

Melanie came to our company to put on a seminar on the home-buying process. I immediately knew that not only was she very knowledgeable but she was so enthusiastic and passionate about making the dream of home-ownership a reality. Initially I was not even sure if I was able to afford a home, but during our first get together (a coffee break at Starbucks!) I laid out my exact situation and expectations, not really knowing where it would go, and she designed a pathway to closing from the initial search, to showings/tours/etc., all the way down to coordinating the lending bankers and agents and attorneys right up to closing. She knows what she is doing and makes sure you are well informed, do your due diligence, and find the perfect place. There is no way I would be living in my awesome Lakeview condo without her. I am so happy to have met Melanie and had her as my agent!

-- Will G.

Melanie Stone is the type of realtor you want and need. Not only is she highly knowledgeable but her passion for real estate and the relationships associated with her work, can not be beat. Her responsiveness is one of the best parts about working with her. She makes you feel like a friend and with a process as frightening and emotionally draining as buying or selling, I know that she is exactly what you would need. She represented me as a buyer and I wouldn't have gone any other way. While getting to know Melanie and her work, I truly saw how tactful and creative she was on the other side when representing a seller. So for that, I look extremely forward to being on the other side of this with Melanie as she is a serious force to be reckoned with in real estate.

-- Kate G.

Our mortgage agent recommended us to talk to Melanie as she was considered very knowledgeable about the Lakeview area in Chicago and also was easy to work with first time home buyer. When we first met her, she wanted to hear from us about all our requirements, our preferences, budget and timeline. Then she made us aware about the whole process in that first meeting. She was very responsive and was able to arrange showings at a very short notice. We put an offer on the house which needed some work and in the end negotiations didn't go through. But she wasn't pushy about it and was actually on our side through the whole process. In the end, we did liked a place in south loop area which was a hot home and had a potential multi-offer situation. She was quick to prepare our offer which helped us to beat the competition and lock in the deal. Even during our loan closing process complication, she was able to walk us through the uncertain times. We highly recommend Melanie to anyone who wants a great customer service, is a first time home buyer and values a genuine opinion over pushy attitude. Thanks Melanie! You'll go places.

-- Himanshu S.

My husband and I met Melanie at her seminar on how to buy a condo--right off the bat she exuded professionalism and knowledge. Soon after we met for coffee to discuss our musts, wants, goals and how we were going to find "the one". Melanie sent us daily listings and appropriately provided professional guidance. She was available at what seemed like a moments notice to show us listings we were interested in and gave us honest advice. We finally found a place we loved and placed an offer but lost it. She reached out to offer support knowing how heart-breaking it can be to lose out but not long after she called again to let us know it was back on the market and she helped us rally to put together an offer in no time. Now we've moved into our new home and are loving it! Melanie was so fun to work with and turned what I thought might be a stressful process into a really fun experience. I couldn't have asked for a better person to work with as we found our first home!

-- Ashley H.

Melanie is the kind of realtor that really cares about her clients and understands that it is an emotional time for homeowners. She uses social media in a way that creates excitement about her properties. She is always responsive and available. She even helped me clean my kitchen before an open house! I highly recommend her!

-- Julie B.

As a first time homebuyer the process can feel an like immense , complex undertaking. Thankfully , Melanie was referred to me through my fabulous mortgage broker , Chris Kinsella. Melanie and I met for our initial consult over tea. Her sweet , kind & positive demeanor immediately put me at ease, and I knew she was someone I could trust. She listened to exactly what I was looking for and expertly targeted my search and sent me daily listings. From the first showing to closing Melanie exuded professionalism . She was always available with a positive attitude, was extremely diplomatic , a stellar negotiator & provided expert guidance when it was appropriate . The cherry on top, Melanie was an absolute blast to work with. My only regret, is that I'm not in the market to buy another house to work with her! I would absolutely recommend Melanie's services for all of your real estate transactions. The best of the best.

-- Camille Z.

Melanie was referred to us by our mortgage banker. We were working with another realtor at the time but weren't confident it was a great fit. We met Melanie at an open house and were attracted to her positive and energetic spirit. We had a nice intro meeting over coffee and Melanie was very attentive to both mine and my husband's wish list. We were first time home buyers and open to looking at condo's, town homes, and SFH's. Melanie was extremely patient with my daily requests to tour homes but very responsive. She helped us write one offer on a townhouse that we eventually lost, but thankfully so, as it prepared us for another offer on our dream home. Melanie helped guide us through the contract and helped negotiate the final sale. We were fortunate to have her on our side.

-- Lisa P.

We had a wonderful experience searching for a condominium in the lake view area.  She did a great job showing us places that fit exactly what we were looking for in a condo.  I would highly recommend Melanie Stone for anyone interested in purchasing a home in Chicago.

-- Diane S.

We hired Melanie to sell our Old Town condo this fall and WOW, she delivered in ways that were above and beyond! Just hire her already! 

Let's just cut to the chase...we sold our condo in less than a week with an over-asking price offer. We had 12 solid offers on the table in that time. Yeah. I know. Pretty awesome. I credit Melanie with making that happen. 

A cynical person might think we were underpriced. But we were not.  We were actually priced on the high end of the neighborhood. (FYI, our list  price was $30K more than three other way more experienced realtors suggested we list for!)  In saying this, we actually had a very serious challenge on our hands. Our condo building had lots of unique features that make appraisals notoriously difficult...30 ft ceilings but lower square footage, only 1 1/2 baths rather than 2, no doorman but a huge private deck...A dream for the right buyer but not necessarily an apples-to-apples appraisal situation.  Someone may offer you a full price offer but if it won't appraise that high then you are quickly out of the power position as a seller. But this didn't happen with Melanie! She brought in buyers that understood the value in our unique property. 

I can't tell you how happy we were with her marketing approach.  She marketed our property perfectly. She is a gifted writer (she was able to highlight features in a poetic way) and even created a video of our property. We had social media buzz happening from day one. A local news outlet even featured a photo of our house she happened to post on her Instagram account! During our open house, she made our home come to life...she hired a pianist to play on our deck while guests sipped wine. It was actually a beautiful re-creation of the many get togethers we hosted at our house when we lived there. She didn't miss a beat. Buyers could really see themselves living there.

I have to mention this aspect because our friends raised their eyebrows at us when they saw that Melanie is somewhat newer to the industry. They expected us to hire one of the "well-known" realtors that we interviewed.  However, this was precisely one of the reasons we hired her!  After interviewing several other realtors, we realized two things...Melanie would make us a priority (she was always available to answer questions) and BECAUSE of her age she naturally understood how to create buzz in the market for our house. The last thing, and probably most important, is that we actually nicknamed her "Stone Cold" because of her negotiating ability. She handles herself with absolute professionalism...always kind but firm. 

We are so pleased we hired Melanie. Her dedication to making our sale happen was truly refreshing in this industry. AND the final result of a quick, over-asking price sale, doesn't hurt either!   THANK YOU Melanie!!!

-- Shawna B.

Melanie sold a condo in Evanston for us. She was tough when she needed to be and understanding when that was the right thing. The result was A+. Melanie is that rare realtor that both commands respect and is like-able.

-- James C.

We had a wonderful (& successful) experience working with Melanie!  My husband and I were first time home buyers and we were new to "house hunting" in the city of Chicago. Melanie made the process enjoyable, fun and easy!  She's extremely knowledgeable with Chicago's neighborhoods, as well as giving first time home buyers the information and contacts they need to know to buy their first home. She also made sure to pay close attention to both my husband and my wants/needs. She was quick to respond to our questions, and was very flexible and willing to work with our crazy schedules when we'd frantically get in touch to see new listings. After about 3-4 weeks of searching, we found our duplex down in Buena Park.  The process of putting in an offer up until when we closed, went extremely well.  I'd highly recommend Melanie to any one who is looking to buy in Chicago!

-- Rhea V.

Melanie helped lease out my unit in a considerably short period of time. She marketed my unit very well and during the listing period, attracted continuous interests from potential tenants. I am also very satisfied with the rental price negotiated!

-- Brian I.

My husband and I recently relocated to Chicago from Pennsylvania. I was beyond overwhelmed with the amount of choices and trying to find a rental on my own in a city I was not familiar with. I am so glad we found her! I really felt as though she listened to who we were and what we wanted in a rental and especially the importance of the neighborhood. We came in for the weekend to meet her and she took us to several places, but none of them were really standing out to us. She was able to sense our discouragement and that night (we were flying out the next day) she sent me a handful more listings and out of those we found one that we loved. She took a lot of effort to make super last minute arrangements for us to see it early the next morning before our flight, and well... I'm sitting in the kitchen of that condo right now writing this review! Needless to say, Melanie went above and beyond to make sure we found our perfect place.

-- Nicole B.

I was in the process of relocating for work and had never been to Chicago before. Preparing to relocate half way across the country is stressful in it of itself but only having one day to view apartments just added to the mess. After being referred to Melanie by a friend, the process of finding the right apartment really became a lot easier as she was able educate me on specific neighborhoods and what to look for in Chicago apartments. Prior to connecting with Melanie, I was nervous about finding an apartment in Chicago, but with her guidance and expertise the process was seamless. I highly recommend Melanie.

-- Kyle S.

Melanie was quick to respond to my initial inquiry about a property I was interested in.  She gave us detailed information about the properties, and the neighborhood we were looking at with the expertise we were hoping to get our first time buying.  Not only would we would definitely recommend Melanie to friends/co-workers thinking of buying a home, we have already given her name to a couple we know.  Thank you for all your help Melanie!!

-- Brandon H.

I cannot imagine what our condo search would have been like without Melanie. I highly recommend her!

Melanie is as dependable and trustworthy as they come. No matter the day or time, I could always count on Melanie to respond within minutes, schedule showings immediately, and communicate efficiently with necessary parties to ensure that we could act quickly on units that we were interested in. She is prompt, organized, and a good listener, all of which are qualities that make her a dependable realtor that you can count on.

Melanie's patience was instrumental to our success in a competitive buyer's market. As our search criteria evolved, Melanie evolved with us and helped us understand the market for the units in our location and price range. 

Melanie is very personable and went above and beyond her professional role to get to know us. Her positive attitude, sense of humor, and ability to connect with us on a personal level made each moment we spent with her even more enjoyable. Melanie was a true dedicated partner to us throughout every stage of our search!

-- Stacey C.

Melanie Stone recently helped me in the successful purchase of my Gold Coast condo. Throughout the process, she was honest, sincere, and prompt.  She listens intently and works around the clock to deliver excellent customer results.

Most importantly though, she secured my A-team (from Peter Marx, Attorney to Michelle Bobart at Guaranteed Rate) to help me close in under 3 weeks. Melanie is one of Chicago's premier real estate brokers...   Highly recommended.

-- Mitchell G.

Melanie was referred to me by my Mortgage Banker. This was my first condo purchase and I was extremely nervous about the entire process. Melanie was amazing at guiding me through this. We had a bidding war when my offer was submitted. Melanie was so thorough with helping me pick my price. She referred me to my lawyer, Peter Marx, and the property inspector. The team that she assembled made this process as smooth as it can be. It was actually fun and exciting closing this deal with this team. I highly recommend Melanie. 

-- Bryan S.

My husband and I met Melanie at an Old Town open house in January. We were impressed by her knowledge of the market, positive attitude and honesty. We were looking to buy a condo for a family member on a limited budget with the priorities of location, security and reasonable HOA fees. Melanie asked the right questions and got back to us that night with 40+ properties that mostly met the requirements. In sorting through the options and making notes, we were able to further define priorities of a view, affordable parking and long term investment potential. I work and live well out of town, so time was limited, but Melanie set up showings and I was able to tour several properties in just a few hours on one morning a week. In three short weeks we were under contract with a 1 bedroom Gold Coast condo that met all of our requirements. We closed on the property in mid-February and couldn’t have done it without Melanie. We met several realtors that first day of open houses, but she was the only one using active listening skills. Melanie’s strengths lie in organization, communication and her ability to manage expectations. I highly recommend her.

-- Geri P.

Melanie is excellent and always puts the customer's best interest first. I gave Melanie a list of what I wanted in a place and she was realistic about what I could get within my price range. She never showed me places over my budget. She was always there to answer questions, give me tips on things to do in the area, and encourage me when the place I thought I really wanted didn't work out. Living in Texas my whole life made the Chicago renting experience interesting to say the least, but having Melanie by my side made the process seamless. I was able to find my new home. I highly recommend Melanie, she'll even parallel park your car!

-- Amanda E.

Melanie is amazing! My roommate and I worked with Melanie to find our new apartment and loved the entire process. Melanie is kind, patient, knowledgeable and a genuinely kind person. She took the time to answer our questions and was fun to work with! I cannot wait to work with Melanie again, soon!

-- Diane H.

Working with Melanie was an absolute joy. She was an exceptional listener and provided us with plenty of options that met our criteria. She was responsive, timely, professional, knowledgeable and turned a semi stressful situation into a successful homefinding adventure.

-- Jen J.

I've known Melanie for a few years, and she is perfect for this business. She was extremely knowledgeable and made sure I knew what I was getting into as a first-time buyer. While very supportive of my choices, she gave me her honest opinion on the properties we looked at as we weighed the pros and cons.

Melanie was very easy to maintain contact with and displayed great flexibility when scheduling showings. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy/sell a property!

In addition to her real estate knowledge, Melanie has valuable connections that we were able to utilize in this process. The attorney and and mortgage broker that we worked with were both tremendous and were both recommended by Melanie.

-- Matthew G.

I worked with Melanie to help a client who was relocating from another country, and she was outstanding.  Totally professional.  She is a great communicator and it made the process very easy. I would highly recommend using her as an agent.  She is a good listener and has good and calming personality.  This was important to me as the client was already experiencing the stress of relocation.  She made the process as easy as possible.

-- Ann V.

Melanie showed excellent communication when keeping my parents priorities in mind and finding apartments. At each apartment showing there were no surprises as Melanie was well aware of the pricing, the local businesses and the apartments. Except for a building going up, but that fault was on the realtor lying to her clients. Melanie would pull me aside and ask me ny feelings about each apartment. She is not only sensitive to her clients but determined and carries a positive attitude. My parents and I have only had good things to say about her.  

-- Nikky P.

Melanie was a complete professional from the first day I met her until the last day I worked with her. She introduced me to my now roommate and I can never thank her enough for that. She was always ready to help and always ready to find the best place for me.

-- Teddy L.

Melanie saved the day with a HUGE feat in getting us into a new home in Chicago within one week. She identified exactly the lifestyle and location we were looking for. She immediately worked over the weekend to get us listings and we scheduled viewings within days. Our negotiation process was a little long, but Melanie stood up for our wants and needs and our interests until we got everything we wanted. Honestly, it took a lot of texts and phone calls into the middle of the night and the early morning hours- but she always responded immediately and professionally. Over all, Melanie had a great eye for a living space we have come to love a lot. She made this process a lot easier than I could have ever imagined. We couldn't have done it without her and we would definitely work with her again- she's a 'get it done' kind of person, and that's who you need in this situation.

-- Rachel R.

Melanie showed us numerous properties that met our requirements in the neighborhood of our choice. She also guided us through the complicated and stressful process of purchasing a condo in Chicago. We ultimately decided to rent for another year, and Melanie found us a GREAT place. We found her to be warm, professional, knowledgeable, and very helpful. 

-- Kathryn T.

If you're looking for the perfect place, your first step is to give Melanie a call. 

After a week of running into dead ends while searching on my own, I decided I needed professional help. Melanie took the time to really understand what factors were important to me in finding a place to call my own and gathered up a great selection of apartments to look at, taking my compressed timeline and schedule into account. She had great knowledge of the area, and always made sure to take me and my parents a couple rounds around the block to get a feel for the area. Once I found my apartment, she was very helpful in navigating the relationship with the other agent and landlord. She's always been very responsive, and just a text or phone call away for any real estate emergencies!

Melanie is professional, knowledgeable, and personable: highly recommend!

-- Sarah O.

Melanie did an excellent job of helping us find an apartment for our son in Chicago. She responded to our emails and phone calls very quickly. She dealt with the agent for the apartment in a very professional manner. Melanie demonstrated an excellent knowledge of the Chicago apartment market. She went to the apartment and took a video as we were conducting our apartment search from Tennessee. I can't say enough about Melanie's professionalism and competency! 

-- Nancy B.

I'm a recent college grad who was looking for my first Chicago apartment without roommates. With a tight budget, this proved a little harder than I thought! To aid in my apartment search, I found Melanie. This was the best decision I could've made! I had also just started a new job, and I didn't really have the time to devote to searching. Luckily Melanie knew exactly what I wanted and found several great options.

After a couple of viewings, I found an apartment I loved, but the owner was very picky and difficult to deal with. We ended up finding another place I liked better soon after, but Melanie was relentless in communicating with the owner of the first place and getting me the best deal. I could not have done it on my own, and I would've given up out of frustration without her. I really appreciated her help and her negotiating skills! We ultimately went with a different apartment only because it was an even better fit for me, but I'm confident she would have gotten me the first one if we waited for the owner to make a decision. 

The apartment I ended up choosing was very popular, but Melanie was able to get me the deal before anyone else. And on top of it, we snagged it the day that the owner dropped the price, so I got a way better deal! Melanie was really mindful of my budget and never pushed me to spend more or take a shabby, claustrophobic apartment. I came to really trust her judgment, and I know I would not have gotten a better place without her. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a place in Chicago, but especially 20 somethings on a budget!

-- Colleen C.

Melanie was a pleasure to work with. Very considerate, pleasant to work with and could always counted on for a quick response throughout the week we worked with her. My partner and I were looking for the perfect rental, and we found it with the help of her services.

-- Keith S.

I was living in London and I had to find a December lease in Chicago with very specific desires and price ranges. Melanie did a fantastic job helping me arrange everything from overseas! She was constantly in communication with me, providing me with a plethora of options and alternatives. Since I was abroad, Melanie even picked up my key from the property manager and brought it to me when I was back in the US. I've already recommended Melanie to other friends of mine struggling to find apartments. As a realtor and as a friend, Melanie is a wonderful person and an immense help in such a complicated and overwhelming process like finding an apartment in the city! I couldn't have asked for a better realtor. Thank you, Melanie, for all of your help! I absolutely love my new apartment!

-- Rima M.

Melanie was able to help us locate a whole assortment of apartments, and even assisted in contacting Craigslist units that she could work. Made the whole process very easy and we found a wonderful apartment.

-- Dan F.

Melanie was such a great help! She's a wonderful person and greatly helped my roommate and I finding the best apartment for us that is within our budget. She is very friendly, efficient, and highly organized! She is highly recommended!

-- Mita P.

Melanie did a fantastic job in helping me find an apartment. I had to relocate for work and wasn't able to view any of the apartments I was looking at before moving in. Melanie took the time to visit the apartments, video them, and provide details on the location and amenities. She was extremely quick to respond to any questions and made my move extremely easy. I would highly recommend Melanie to others. She is professional, knowledgeable, and willing to put in extra effort to make sure you end up in the apartment or home that fits your needs.

-- Jake K.

Working with Melanie was great. We were moving to Chicago from Europe without having visited the city once before. Obviously, we were relying on Melanie for her local expertise. Before coming over to Chicago, Melanie e-mailed us a list of properties that, based on our wishes, she thought would be good choices for us. She hit the mark just right. 

After arriving in Chicago, communicating with Melanie was very easy. She kept us up to date all troughout the process and was always available for questions. 

Most importantly, she helped us find the perfect apartment! 

-- Elleke V.

Melanie is a great realtor who understands all the ups and downs of finding a new place and will help you through all of it. She did a great job helping us find our new place.

-- Anna U.
