Jim and Melissa

Red-Robin-Group-Testimonial-Jim-MelissaWe had a fantastic experience working with Melissa Wakamo to sell our home in Grant Park and purchase another in intown Atlanta.  Having lived in Grant Park for over 11 years, we knew Melissa well and had watched over the years as she grew Red Robin Group into such an impressive organization.  So, it was an easy decision for us to approach Melissa when we were ready for a move.

 During our early discussions, we felt that we would have a tremendous amount of support in staging our house and getting it ready to list. 316-Pavillion-SOLDHowever, thanks to Melissa’s amazing contacts within the neighborhood, we ended up selling our house for asking price before we even listed it.  With two young children and a dog, we are still breathing a sigh of relief that we were able to escape the inconvenience of staging and showing our home! 

 At the same time, we knew that the market had changed drastically and that inventory of available homes was very low.  We were very worried about buying a new home in a sellers market.  Thankfully, Melissa was there for us.   She spent time going over the limited inventory available so that we could be educated about the current market and know what we wanted in our new home.  Then, when a potential home came on the market, she was there with us within hours of it listing.  We ended up in a multiple offer situation, which was nerve-wracking and stressful, but in the end, we got the house!  We felt so fortunate to have Melissa by our side through some difficult and complex negotiations.  There were several opportunities where our purchase could have fallen through, but Melissa put in some long hours to keep it on track.

 On a personal note, Melissa was always very easy to work with.  She is very good at providing you with open and useful communication.  We never felt as if she was feeding us some unhelpful “real estate line”.  In addition, we always felt that she really had our best interests at heart and was doing everything that she could to help us achieve our goals.  Plus, Melissa is just a fun person.  We would whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone we know.  We also had a great experience with the whole Red Robin office and appreciated the support of Natalie, Jan and everyone else who helped us through this process.
