I just wanted to give a huge shoutout to my realtor, Erin Melton at ReMax Peninsula! She has made the whole process of buying a house absolutely painless. She explained every part of the process extremely well so there were no unpleasant surprises! If anyone is looking to purchase a home in the Newport New/Hampton area, definitely hit Erin up, she will take great care of you!
Justin Olthoff Home Buyer Newport News, VA December 4, 2016
This was our 2nd home that Erin sold for us, and as always she did an amazing job. Erin has a gift writing about and taking photos for the listing that gets people interested and in the door. Once an offer is made, she is very thorough an knowledgeable about the entire process. She will ask questions and raise concerns that may not have crossed your mind, which is an invaluable resource when selling a home. She is always professional and prompt when communicating about the sale of your home. We like Erin so much that we hired her to help us find our dream home, and she did not disappoint! Whether you purchase or sell a home with Erin and The Melton Team, rest assured you will be treated very well and will always know where you stand. I will always recommend Erin and The Melton Team for anyone looking to sell or purchase a home, and she has earned a lifetime customer in us.
Rocky & Theresa Epp Home Seller Glen Allen, VA November 2, 2015
Another delightful experience working with Erin. I was impressed with her professional approach and the services she provided facilitating the sale of a rental property earlier in the year, so I hired her to sell a second one a few months later. She did not disappoint. With each of the transactions, I received offers almost immediately, and with the latest sale they exceeded the listing price. Post contract ratification, she paid meticulous attention to the details required to insure a successful closing, and kept me informed every step of the way. She clearly left me with the impression mine was not just another listing in her portfolio, but instead one that she took a sincere and passionate interest in. Bright, articulate, poised, and dedicated, Erin gets my strongest recommendation.
Jeff Heslop Home Seller Richmond, VA January 4, 2017
Erin and her team are amazing! Prior to working with the Melton Team, we were using another realtor and our home just wasn't getting market attention. Things changed overnight once we met with Erin. Erin helped develop a much better marketing plan, brought in clients immediately, and provided excellent and timely feedback on every viewing. She was awesome at following up with us and potential clients. We always felt like we were her #1 priority!
I wouldn't change a thing!
Brian and Kelli Fort Home Seller Hampton, VA August 15, 2017
Erin Melton was recommended to us and we're glad that we went with her. We'd really just been perusing available homes via Zillow but had yet to step into one. From our first conversation she was responsive, attentive and made valid and welcome suggestions. Within an hour she had some additional house listings for us to drive by and comment on. Our first day out we saw about 10 or so homes, of which one was the home we ended up buying. She took us out for another 10 or so the following weekend and we found we were comparing them all to that particular house. Being torn between jumping on the house and waiting to see what else was there she gave us some pretty simple advice. She said, If it's something that you'll regret if it goes off the market then you should think hard on it. That was it, no pushing which we really appreciated. After deliberating and finding out that other buyer were interested she helped us put in our offer and counter offers while we were out of state on vacation. Even after the sale, she's still responded and assisted us quickly. Truly a wonderful agent and person.
Marshall & Kramer Review for Erin Melton Home Buyer Richmond, VA October 5, 2015
Erin has been our agent for several years handling multiple transactions with professionalism and class. The expertise shared in sale preparation and presentation were second to none. We highly recommend and trust The Melton Team for our future buying and selling ventures.
Mark & DeAnna Dickerson Home Seller York County, VA December 30, 2016
We used the Melton Team to help sell a family member's home. Erin was great to work with through the whole process. She kept us updated and made sound logical recommendations through the whole process. She was very accommodating to some unique challenges we had. Photos taken of the property were excellent! Really highlighted the home. We are continuing to work with the Melton Team on our own home sale!
Cannot think of any areas needing improvement.
Liz and Will Robbins Home Seller Williamsburg, VA August 19, 2017
My husband took a spontaneous job offer in another state. We decided to sell our home we purchased less than 3 years ago. We had worked with Erin on the purchasing our home and were happy with her work ethic and her knowledge, so we decided to continue our relationship with the selling of it as well. We decided on a Thursday to sell our home; she came by that evening and did a walk through she followed up with a professional photographer and Tuesday morning our home was on the market. By Tuesday evening we had two full asking price offers! We accepted one of the offers and closed 30 days later. Things really moved fast like we wanted it to, and we know a lot of it was Erin helping us push through the steps and paperwork to selling a home.
Adrienne & Jason Brown Home Seller Yorktown, VA October 6, 2015
We first met Erin 8 years ago when we decided to purchase our first home. As first time homebuyers, we were clueless on how to proceed, Erin held our hand through the entire process. Eight years later, the time came to sell our home and there was no doubt in our minds who we needed to call first! It came at no surprise that within 13 days of putting our home on the market, we had an offer. Erin is a hard working go-getter. She is very professional, yet we always seem to have a good time when she's around. She has made what would normally be a very stressful process enjoyable. We feel very comfortable with Erin. She has always had our back whether she was fighting to get us the best deal or handling trouble-shooting matters with ease. Erin is the only local realtor we recommend to friends and family because of her dedication, commitment, knowledge, and ability to see the process through to the end.
Colleen & Scott Petrie Home Seller York County, VA May 5, 2016
Erin has always impressed us with not just her real estate knowledge, but also her ability to relate to her clients. She and her team know just how to market your home to reach not just a broad market, but THE market for your home.
Erin's team skillfully coordinated all concerns of the buyer with us. After clarifying all the concerns the buying party had, we were able to quickly reach an agreement, as well as take care of any of the concerns for the buying party. I feel this made it a great purchase experience for everyone involved.
William and Elizabeth Robbins Home Seller Williamsburg, VA August 23, 2017
The Melton Team got the job done. We interviewed two agents and chose Erin because of her energy and enthusiasm. Both Erin and Cindy were great to work with. They are excellent communicators and very responsive to all our questions. Bryant's beautiful photos showed very clearly all of the assets of the house and landscape. The results couldn't have been better. The house was under contract in three weeks and the closing was completed without a hitch!
Anne & Bob Beckley Home Seller Williamsburg, VA August 5, 2015
Erin had to exercise extreme patience with us. This was our 1st home sale in the 35 years Sharon & I have been together. We put a lot of ourselves into 143 Tanglewood Drive over the 25 years we lived there to make it our own. Making changes to the house to get it ready for market was not easy for us. We also had tons of questions concerning what was happening, why it was happening that way and why we had to do a lot of the thing the mortgage companies kept asking for. Erin was always there to explain and answer what sometimes must have seemed silly questions. We listened and it paid off. The house sold quicker that we had expected, and for more that we were asking, so Erin's guidance and help really paid off.
Know your client. Being retired military, for us in particular, I think a selling your house 101, soup to nuts discussion up front may have helped us understand the process better at the beginning and prevented a little anxiety on our part. A lot of people have their finger in the process form seller, buyer, agents, mortgage companies, appraisers, inspectors, underwriters, and Title and Escrow companies. It seemed to us, every time we thought we were finished with one piece of the process, someone else pushed another piece of paper at us taking us back a step or two.
Tim & Sharon Blevins Home Buyer Williamsburg, VA May 8, 2016
We couldn’t have asked for a better person than Erin Melton for all of our selling and buying needs! With her as our agent we quickly found the home of our dreams and were able to sell our adorable first home. She knows how to get the job done! I would highly recommend her to anyone, and would absolutely do business with her again if we ever decide to sell our current home.
We had no complaints throughout the entire process. Everything was taken care of in the most professional way.
Marianne and Hamilton Whitfield Home Seller Colonial Heights, VA February 16, 2017
I simply cannot say enough positive things about working with Erin Melton and her team. She is very organized, timely, responsive, thorough, determined, professional, and simply a joy to work with in any capacity. Erin went out of her way to ensure we had what we needed to promote and sell our property. Not only would I use her services again, but I highly recommend The Melton Team to anyone. You won't be disappointed!
No improvements needed!
Angela Dereix Home Seller Williamsburg, VA August 23, 2017
We recently bought a home in the Richmond area and we had the pleasure of working with Erin Melton and team. We've bought properties over the years and this was by far the most pleasurable experience we have had in the real estate market. Erin is the most professional, efficient and diligent Realtor we have ever worked with. She made the search and purchase of our home an easy and satisfying process. We could always reach Erin day or night with any questions and receive answers and guidance right away. We would definitely recommend Erin for any real estate needs you have and satisfaction is guaranteed.
Edward and Linda Holliday Home Buyer Richmond, VA January 14, 2014
Amazing experience listing with the Melton Team! From the first meeting to follow-ups after closing, there is nothing more I could have asked for in a Realtor. Prior to listing with Erin, she had a wonderful presentation with comps and seller?s estimated cost forms based on several selling prices. Compared to other Realtors her professionalism and experience were clearly superior.
She walked through the entire property and gave us a very honest opinion on what needed to occur to sell the house for the desired price. We did everything she recommended, including painting the entire downstairs, power-washing the house and driveway, replacing two windows, landscaping the front and back yard and several other small items. While it required a good amount of money the return on investment was worth every penny! The house immediately started showing the day listed and was under contract within two weeks.
Erin responded immediately to every question and concern that we had no matter what time of day. When she went on vacation out of country she made sure we had positive contact with her assistant if any questions arose and she even text from the airport when she came back. Her professionalism and dedication to our house and experience was outstanding. I could not have asked for a better experience. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone.
In short, Erin and her team listed and sold our home. The overall service they provide entails so much more though.
Stefanie Dressel & Victor Guzman Home Seller Hampton, VA May 4, 2016
If you are looking for a realtor that looks after your interest, you cannot find anyone better than Erin Melton. Straight forward and sincerely, Sergey and Anna.
Sergey Gurin and Anna Mikheleva Home Buyer Midlothian, VA February 16, 2017
Erin REALLY helped us feel very comfortable about purchasing our first home! She was incredibly knowledgeable which helped relieve most stress out of the very stressful process of buying a home, especially your first one :) Zac and I had a very smooth transition thanks to Erin and her team!!
I'm not sure I had any issues with my home buying experience.
Lauren Vugteveen and Zac Naccarato Home Buyer Mechanicsville, VA September 27, 2017
My wife Carrie and I would like to say a very special thank you to Erin Melton for the great job she did on finding us our new home. We were relocating to Virginia from Pennsylvania and only had a short window to get something done. Erin did a great job listening to the wants and needs Carrie and I were looking for in our new home. We have 2 young boys and a dog, so we needed an open floor plan and a yard. She worked hard to show us a wide variety of homes all over the area. We were limited on time so she packed in a lot of homes in a short period of time! It was a Saturday and it was pouring down rain. Though Erin had lined up a whole day of house hunting for us, she was confident the first home she previewed and picked to show us was “the one”. All she said was “I think you guys will like this one”. Well, she was right-it was the home we had been hoping to find! We could not be happier with our home and with Erin. Erin is not just our agent; she is now our friend!!
The Spencer Family Home Buyer Yorktown, VA January 23, 2013
Erin is a consummate professional and very good at her job. I contacted her based on good reviews on Angie's list and it served me well. She was very easy to work with, thorough in her approach, and did not put any pressure on me as the seller. She was always prompt in responding to my questions and on time when we needed to meet and I appreciate her respect for my time.
She provided a lot of helpful advice on what to do and not to do in terms of updating the 1965 home to ready it for sale. She linked me up with a painter who did a wonderful job painting the house. She thoroughly researched the market of comparable properties sold or being sold in the area and provided details to help my decisions on selling price and strategy for listing.
Once the house was listed, she kept me up to date with weekly emails summarizing views and responses from other realtors who had seen the house. She explained the process every step of the way and gave me a real sense of confidence of her abilities and style.
Best of all, she closed the deal this week. I recommend her to anyone needing a realtor in the Virginia peninsula area. Thanks Erin for making it happen.
