I've been a licensed Realtor since 1999 and have lived in Chatham County since 1993. Grapevine Realty Services is a full-service brokerage company with NC Regional MLS membership.
"I live in Massachusetts and was forced to sell my Mom's house in Fearrington, NC following my Dad's death. Because every real estate transaction has a number of little (and not so little) issues that must be dealt with prior to a closing, and because I was living out of state, I was not looking forward to this process. However, Melanie was incredibly helpful throughout the entire process and helped me through it all flawlessly and with a positive, can-do attitude. On a number of occasions, she went above and beyond to insure a successful closing. I cannot recommend her highly enough."

Meeting a Service Provider
Too busy to stay home and meet with a service provider? Have a licensed Realtor open the door and lock up.
Going out of town and a house sitter is a little too much? I can check on your property and make sure everything is ok.
Seller To-Do List
When getting your house ready for the market, there are a few things to think about.
Decluttering and cleaning are a must.
Consider getting a home inspection and tackling any issues that come up.
Get your paperwork in order: warranties, old closing documents, surveys, etc.
Lastly, talk to us before replacing carpet or painting...you may not have to depending on the market.
"Grapevine Realty helped my wife and I find the perfect country home for us in 2014. It was 4 years earlier, in 2010, I met Melanie at a small business networking lunch meeting.
What impressed me was her listening and connecting to the 7 or so of us there. Solid, engaged person, that is all I needed is the vibe and character reading of her to keep her in mind for 4 years.
Listed out home in August and it sold at the first showing, and the home we now have Melanie got our offer correct and this farm also was sold to the first buyer US!
I keep in touch with Melanie as we both share an interest in serving Seniors and representing a segment of American life that is not dependent on changing to be aligned to the latest fad.
A quality person needs no one else to follow a trendy way to be, but Melanie looks to her own heart for understanding, listening, helping and with a sense of pragmatism and value and fairness.
This approach needs no qualifications.A wonderful realtor for your request to secure an important step of finding a home here."

"I had the opportunity to meet Melanie in 2005 when I was interviewing realtors to sell my family's farm. When Melanie walked in the house the very first time she told me the exact price that I ultimately received for the property. Melanie is thorough, knowledgeable and knows just the right people for inspections, repairs. She's creative in getting the property "out there." She is a fantastic mediator, as was needed in the interaction between me and the buyer of my property. She is available 24/7 and responds to your requests/questions efficiently and immediately. Melanie not only sold my farm, but found the property and builder for my new house, which turned out to be as pleasant an experience as my interactions with Melanie."
