Laura Reed

Melissa is so wonderful to work with. We are new to the Madison area and she not only is very knowledgeable about the various aspects of different communities, but very responsive, timely, and professional. My husband and I highly recommend Melissa in helping with real estate needs in the Madison area.

Buyer

Melissa helped me find and purchase my second home, and when I was ready to sell, she's also the realtor I called for that. I was impressed by how quickly Melissa responded to my questions and by how knowledgeable she was about the area and buying/selling process. After selling my house, she also helped me find and buy land to build on and recommended me to a great local builder. I would 100% recommend working with Melissa, you won't be disappointed!

Carl Neff

I never actually saw the halo, but Melissa (Miss-Lissa as my 2-year old called her) was an angel for being the most patient person as we relocated to Madison from Ohio while my wife was 8 months pregnant with twins. We still feel like we owe her for the time invested. Highly recommend especially if you are relocating.

Seller

Melissa has been outstanding to work with. From day one, she has had a great marketing plan to get my house sold. She communicates with me all the time regarding the process, and always follows up on what she says she is going to do. I would definitely recommend her!

Buyer

Melissa helped us with buying a home. We were relocating from a different state, and she sent weekly emails for many months with all the new homes that were on the market prior to our actual home-buying visit. This really helped us stay on top of the real estate market in Madison from afar. I most appreciate her responsiveness and professionalism. I also know that she understood our style and choices of homes very quickly. She was available for us and responded to any question or concern we ever had. Additionally, she has shown us that she really knows and understands this business and also has other contacts that we have found very helpful. Additionally, I have seen that she is also respected by her colleagues.

Finally, what has made me take the time to write this review is that she risked a potential done deal and she knew that by doing this, she knew she could potentially lose a big sale. Despite this, she stepped up and risked it all for us so we could get the home we knew that was absolutely right for our family. We are so thankful for that.

Seller

Working with Melissa is fantastic, I couldn't recommend her more! She is always available, very knowledgeable, and calmed our nerves throughout the whole process. We had a great experience with her when we bought this home, so when it was time to relocate again, I immediately called Melissa to help us sell.

Buyer

Purchased our 2nd home from Melissa in just over 2 years. I recommended her to 2 of my co-workers as well. Both purchased homes and were also more than pleased! So long as we buy or sell in the Madison area we will only work with Melissa!

Buyer

She helped us find the perfect home! My coworker referred us to her and I am thankful he did. She was very knowledgeable and gave us great advice to help ensure our bid was accepted. I highly recommend Melissa LeGrand!

Seller

We had been considering listing our home for some time, and finally decided it was time to make the move. We worked with Melissa to determine our requirements for the new home, and she dutifully showed us homes until we narrowed in on the right one. At the same time, she provided insight into our existing home, and what we should anticipate throughout the sales process. Any time we had a question, a simple call, email or text got us an immediate answer. We found the new house we had been looking for and immediately got the process moving to sell our old home. We received an offer the first day the home was listed, and Melissa helped us through all the paperwork to make sure the closings lined up, and we got the most out of both deals. She is very knowledgeable about the trends across multiple market segments, so we knew exactly what to expect. The process could not have gone smoother fro…

Thanks Melissa!

Buyer

Melissa is very professional but still very personable. She knows exactly what is going on in the market at all times. We had a very specific list of what we needed in a home and she found what we needed very fast! She is upfront and honest. She tells it like it is. You don't find that often anymore-- people just tell you what you want to hear. I appreciate her honesty and her ability to give her upfront and honest advice. I highly recommend her to ALL of my friends and family! ?? A+

Buyer

Melissa was extremely helpful throughout the process of purchasing our first home. We were quick to find the right one and she jumped on it and got a deal hammered out over the weekend and we got exactly what we wanted in a market where houses were going within days. She answered all emails within hours and always kept us up to date with information throughout the process and really made buying a house a simple and stress-free experience. If I am ever in the market for a house again, she will absolutely be my first call!

Jennifer Krahl

We really enjoyed working with Melissa. She made buying our first home a very easy process. She is very friendly, extremely responsive, and helpful. We would definitely recommend working with her. We couldn't be happier.

Katie Hill

Melissa is a true expert. She was completely dedicated to helping us through the process of selling our home, not only with her time and effort but in her patience and kindness. Melissa knows that your home is not just a financial transaction to you, and treats you like a good friend during the process. She took control of everything so we could go on with our lives while our home was on the market. I trusted her comprehensive expertise in real estate, her unending knowledge of Middleton, but more importantly, I trusted her truth and integrity. She somehow made the whole process of selling our home fun. She is truly the best.

Janet Maroun

Melissa helped us with our relocation and the purchase of our new home. She is an EXCEPTIONAL agent. She is extremely knowledgeable about the market and gave us great recommendations and advice. Melissa did everything she could to make our relocation as easy as possible for us. She made the process from beginning to end seem easy! Even after our closing, she remains our go-to person for local information and is always happy to help.

Seller

We first worked with Melissa a couple of years ago for the purpose of selling our home after we’d already moved out of state. We had an accepted offer within 2 weeks. We recently closed on the sale of our income property where Melissa handled everything for us again....remotely. There is an added challenge on Melissa’s part when working with out of state clients and she exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend working with Melissa!

Seller

Melissa listed and sold our home in Middleton. She is very professional, responsive, and willing to go above and beyond to ensure the best results for us. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell. She always made herself available to answer any questions we had. She provided fantastic marketing materials for our home and was willing to make photo changes as the changes in seasons required. She proved extremely knowledgeable of the housing market in our area as well as the schools. Her willingness to follow-up with any/all potential buyers proved to be an asset as she was able to successfully turn potential into a sale.

Buyer

I can not thank Melissa enough for her patience and guidance during our recent home search and ultimately, home purchase. She showed us homes that met our needs and was understanding if we took a pass. She is the ultimate professional! She handles herself and her interactions with homeowners and buyers exceptionally well. We always felt that she had/has our best interest at heart. I would recommend Melissa to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home.

Seller

My husband and I needed to sell our home quickly due to relocation for work and Melissa understood our need. She used her expertise to move the property quickly while still allowing us to get the best offer for our home. Melissa was very communicative which made us feel comfortable during the selling process.

Russ Bogue

I was first introduced to Melissa when I traveled to Madison for a job interview from a large city on the east coast. I wanted to tour the city and get a feel for the real estate and she was recommended by my future employer. The time we spent together was very helpful. I later accepted the job and a year later purchased a house through Melissa. Doing that period we continued to work together and toured many properties. The whole process could not have been easier or more enjoyable. You simply can't go wrong engaging Melissa and you will have a great time working with her.

Cynthia LeGrand

Melissa did a great job finding us a home that was perfect for our needs. She knew what to show us better than we knew how to ask for it. She was detailed in the process and did an amazing job from start to end.

Sandy Quickert

Melissa was very helpful in helping us decide how to prepare and market our home and helped us get a much better price than other agents had suggested. She is very positive and energetic without being pushy.

Henry Riter

Over the years we've worked with a number of realtors. None were as professional and as knowledgeable as Melissa. She was a pleasure to work with, and I would recommend her to anyone.

Jennie Godwin

My husband and I just went through the experience of buying a house for the first time and it could not have gone more smoothly. I have had a bad experience with a realtor in the past and ended up renting the past few months, but this time could not have been any easier. Melissa listened to us when we told her what we wanted in a house and didn't waste our time with properties that didn't suit our needs. We had decided on a house on after just 2 weeks of looking. Unfortunately, there were other offers on the table, but Melissa knew how to negotiate with the buyers and, from experience, knew what we should accept and what to counter. The sellers chose us and Melissa walked us through the closing process. It was a stress-free experience and we couldn't have asked for a better realtor. Buying a house was actually fun and not overwhelming like my prior experience.

Belle Pleva

You cannot go wrong if you choose to work with Melissa for your realtor! She is extremely knowledgeable, dedicated, patient, and fun to work with. She goes above and beyond to make sure that you are getting exactly what you are looking for..and more! She is willing to go out of her way to ensure you have the best experience during the process. We used Melissa 10 years ago to buy our first home, and now she just helped us find our new dream home. Did I mention she sold our house after 8 hours on the market? I cannot say enough about Melissa, we love her!

Krista Crawford

Melissa has been my realtor twice now for selling and buying two homes. She has impressed me over and over again with her thorough knowledge of the housing market and extremely hard work to do whatever she could for me as her client. From the start of staging my home, to having an incredible listing with great professional photos to open houses, Melissa went beyond what I would have expected, and through her work, we were able to sell my home in a week's time. No matter the time of day Melissa was always responsive to email and/or text messages to answer any questions I may have had as well as help make sure I understood every step of the process. She always focused on finding homes that fit my needs as well as giving good advice and be encouraging in the time that it took, never focusing on just closing a deal.

Leslie Hayner

Melissa was a pleasure to work with over the past few months during our relocation to the Madison area from the West Coast. Even though the market was tough over the winter, Melissa persevered and helped us find the right place for our family. She was very responsive, kept on top of the market, and arranged for us to see many properties immediately as they were listed, ensuring that we wouldn't miss out when the right house appeared. Also, as a native of Madison, her knowledge of the greater-Madison area is exceptional. She knows every neighborhood, the amenities surrounding it, and the schools. Ultimately, we found a great house that meets our needs and that we're very happy with and we credit Melissa with that!

Keith Patty

Melissa was extremely helpful given our particular circumstances. Our transaction was from afar and required a great deal of extra work and coordination on her part. I would highly recommend Melissa.

Aqua Plumbing

I met with Melissa to discuss the type of condo I was looking for. She immediately impressed me with her professionalism and knowledge of the market. Inventory, at that time, was low but she encouraged me to be patient. Late one afternoon, Melissa contacted me within minutes of a condo, meeting my criteria, being listed. Within 3 hours she set up a showing, toured the property with me, and had an accepted offer. I wanted this property and she knew exactly how to make it all come together. To date, my condo is appraising $30,000.00 more than I paid for it.

LJ Schumacher

Melissa listened to what we wanted. She showed us listings that met all of our criteria. Working with her was a great experience. This was our first time working with a realtor and she made our search such a very positive experience. She was prompt returning our calls and stayed with us until we closed on our home. She did a great job for us and we would highly recommend her to others looking for a realtor.

Benjamin Udell

This is the first house we've sold with Melissa and the second house we've bought. We continue to use Melissa because of her professionalism, knowledge of the market, and support through a big financial commitment. Plus, she's very easy to work with while being direct and supportive of your situation. She'll be our first call when we decide to sell!

Julie Blader

Melissa LeGrand is truly one of the best in the business! She is not only knowledgeable but also patient and compassionate. Melissa took the time to really get to know us and was able to find a great home that met our unique family needs! Melissa was invaluable to us from start to finish and I would absolutely recommend her to everyone I know!

Kathleen Detloff

Melissa was absolutely wonderful to work with. As first-time homebuyers, we had a lot of questions and insecurities. Melissa was so professional and knowledgeable and helped us fully understand the process of buying a home. She was always easy to reach, and quick to respond to any questions we had. Melissa was able to find us the perfect house and had many strategies to help our offer get accepted (even though we were competing against five other offers!) When a few issues arose, she solved them with ease. She made sure we were comfortable and happy every step of the process. Melissa was not only professional but also a really fun person to work with. She seemed to genuinely care about finding the right fit for us and made the process exciting and enjoyable. We were so happy to celebrate with her when we closed on our dream house.

Jackie Kiltz

Our family has had the pleasure of working with Melissa on two separate real estate transactions over the last 5 years. Our personal situation was likely more complex than the average potential homeowner and Melissa handled each of our real estate purchases with grace and poise. Living in the greater Madison area for a long time, she is very knowledgeable about the various school systems and property values. Melissa is honest, hard-working, and very professional and was always available to us with questions and concerns. If you are looking for a real estate agent that sincerely has your best interests at heart, chose Melissa!

James Mitchell Carlisle

I moved to Madison in early 2020. Melissa and Brogan at Sprinkman realty were incredibly helpful in getting familiarized with the neighborhoods and the market. They helped me find and negotiate a purchase that worked great for me.
