My husband and I just closed on our home after searching for nearly a year. Melissa was with us for every step and I wouldnt want it any other way. In each home we toured, she noticed things in the home that werent even on my radar. When we finally found what we were looking for, she worked expeditiously (which is necessary in this market). Melissa will be your greatest advocate and your strongest asset. You wont regret working with her.
Where do we begin?! Melissa is an exceptional agent. She took the time to get to know us and better understand what we were looking for. She is attentive without being pushy. Melissa was always prepared for the next step in the home buying process and flexible/ solution oriented when hiccups arose. This was our first time buying a home and we can honestly say we couldn’t have done it without her. If you’re looking for an agent who is an all around great person, logical, prepared, fair, and has your best interest at heart, Melissa Simpson is your person! Thank you for helping us buy our forever home!

Melissa was very knowledgeable, professional, and friendly to work with. She always kept us informed and used her expertise to give us the best service. She always went above and beyond – nights and weekends!
Melissa has helped us with multiple purchases in the Durham area and each time she was extremely professional, helpful and knowledgeable. She listened to what we were looking for and lead us to the most desirable properties. When we did come across issues during the purchase she advised us and took care of any problems immediately, she was always there to look out for our best interest. She is very familiar with the Durham area and can guide you to the exact location best for you. Melissa is our go to Durham agent!
Melissa is a fantastic realtor. We have been working with her for 3 different houses now over the last 10 years, and consider her a personal friend. She has done a fantastic job helping us find homes that have suited our growing family, and helped us learn about the right spots to purchase throughout the area. Responsive, punctual, and an absolutely awesome advocate for us in the process, I couldn’t imagine using anyone else for a realtor. Melissa really is the best we’ve worked with

Melissa is knowledgeable about Durham, observant in both her conversations but also her negotiations. She narrowed down properties that were in line with our specs and didn’t put up with shenanigans. Great realtor advocate!
Melissa is the best of the best! I have bought/sold three houses with her - one in particular was a sale in a down real estate market and it sold for asking price and in less than three months. Buying and selling a home is stressful - Melissa makes the process seamless. She handles EVERYTHING from lining up photographers to photograph your home, surveyors, inspectors & contractors (should you need things repaired before closing/listing your property). She has access to a large group of real estate contacts from lenders, attorneys, surveyors, etc. so there is no need to do any research for these type services yourself. She is honest, great at negotiating and, not to mention, fun.
Melissa has been our real estate agent for 13 years, she is punctual, knowledgeable and knows how to get us the best deals as sellers or buyers. We strongly recommend her!!!
Melissa was AWESOME!!! I would readily recommend her, and would DEFINITELTY use her to purchase my next property. She was very patient, she listened to our needs, and helped us find exactly what we were looking for.
Melissa was wonderful in walking us through the sale of our home, and then through the process of finding and purchasing another home. She is incredibly knowledgeable, and answered every question we had promptly and accurately. She advocated for us in our closings to get us the best possible price and made sure that we were satisfied with every aspect of both sales. I would absolutely recommend Melissa to help you find or sell your next home!

5 stars is truly not enough for Melissa Simpson! She's extremely professional, polished and organized. . .my husband and I were impressed at how quickly she helped sell our home, and there were four other very comparable homes for sale on our street at the time! We did everything she told us to do to get it sold quickly and everything she handled from the negotiations to pricing to a tricky "close" worked out great. Because we're super busy professionals we felt confident in her sales leads, her professional photography and marketing. We also really like that she's from this area and has very quick access to anything we needed. We give her our highest review
Melissa was very professional, responsive and knowledgeable regarding our buying process. She showed us many homes all over the triangle and was very patient and kind throughout this stressful process.
Melissa knew we were interested in a certain neighborhood, so when a house went on the market, she sent us the listing and we ended up buying the house. We are 100% happy and love our house and never would have found it without Melissa!!
Throughout the process of selling this home, which had been owned by my late mother, Melissa was extremely helpful. She was very familiar with the neighborhood, offered expert advice, and was willing to extend herself in learning about selling a home with a reverse mortgage, which was a daunting process due to the numerous reporting requirements and expectations of the lender. Melissa was always pleasant and cheerful, communicated actively with me, and consistently responded to my telephone and email communications. I highly recommend her as a real estate agent.

Even though Melissa usually works in the Durham area, she graciously came to Raleigh on numerous occasions to show us properties in this area where we were interested in purchasing. She made herself available at all times for us, and always had a smile on her face. She walked us through the buying process, from the first conversation to determine what we were interested in, through the negotiations, and finally through the final signing of the documents. Melissa spent many hours researching homes and neighborhoods for us. She knew when to offer advice and when to step back. Melissa's sweet personality and hard work made this buying adventure so much easier than it would have been otherwise. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor. Thanks, Melissa, for a job well done!

Melissa helped us sell one home and buy another in 2014. We could not have been happier with her expertise and kindness throughout both the selling and buying processes. She gave us great advice that helped us get top dollar for the property we sold. We also felt so much care and consideration from her as she helped us select and purchase our current home. When it came to every technical and financial detail, Melissa handled everything with amazing attention to detail and made sure that the transactions were as smoothly as possible. My husband and I give her our highest recommendation! You can't go wrong working with Melissa!
Morgan Hendrix
Melissa was absolutely wonderful and incredibly organized. We had a tight timeline and limited availability to look at houses, and Melissa was flexible and accommodating. Within a month we put in an offer on a house we loved, and Melissa handled all the details, making it as seamless as possible. Overall, an excellent experience and I can't recommend Melissa highly enough.
Delisa Reavis
Melissa was a dynamic realtor to work with. She knew the areas in which we were looking and knew the local school assignments as well. She was always responsive and attentive to our needs. Melissa runs her business with honesty, integrity and high moral standards. She was a pleasure to do business with and she has become our realtor for life. Her personality and kindness cannot be matched by anyone else in the industry.
Stephanie Minor
Melissa is amazing at her job! She works hard to find what her clients are looking for in a home. She advises her clients with her vast knowledge in the real estate market from making an offer on a home to the negotiation process. Melissa goes above and beyond to ensure that everything will be perfect for her clients from the beginning of the home search to the closing. I would highly recommend Melissa to help purchase your next home! She truly is a joy and pleasure to work with.
