Melissa Stevenson sold our house. In 4 hours! She is awesome. She patiently walked us through the selling process and gave us excellent recommendations on economic improvements we could make to increase our chances of selling quickly and maximizing our sale price. She knows our market and target demographic well, and we ended up raising the list price just before hitting the market based on how well our improvements turned out. We then had an offer for only hundreds less than the listing before the end of the first day on the market. She was very responsive and attentive to our concerns. I can't recommend her highly enough. Thanks Melissa!

Melissa has a friendly and knowledgeable approach to her clients that lets them feel comfortable and secure with her as their choice of a realtor. I am very impressed with the wisdom and skill used to market my home. Melissa’s frequent updates throughout the sale process made me feel secure, that I had made the right decision to use her as my Realtor. Melissa is very patient and friendly. She was timely and and professional when we communicated during the speed bumps that all real estate transactions encounter. I really like the hometown feel of working with the staff at Newcastle Realty. You can really tell they care about you and your home. Highly recommend. I will use Melissa and Newcastle Realty again.

We found Melissa by chance when we were looking at houses on Zillow, she showed us our first house. From that day, more than a year and a half before finding the one, she was amazing. My husband and I phoned/texted her numerous times for showings, and she was always so accommodating. She was patient and helpful, and really listened to our wants/needs. I will always recommend her HIGHLY to anyone who I hear is looking to buy or sell. Melissa is a true professional. I cannot give enough positive feedback about the way she handled every part of our buy/sell process. Melissa is so down to earth, and made us feel very comfortable during all communications.

Melissa captured the essence of the home we had lived in for 13 years. She clearly presented that feeling in the written description of our property and the online Facebook teaser. Also adding the additional sign with the for sale sign to the front of our home was clever and drew added attention. She also did her required comparison to price the home fairly. We'd use her again in a heartbeat.

I had previously had Melissa Stevenson help me sell a home and buy a home. She is very qualified, professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. I did not even consider using someone else when I was ready to sell my home. Melissa made the process so much easier than I thought it would be. She was a big help to me in all areas of the sale and in purchasing my new home. My home sold within days of being put on the market. Melissa did an excellent job of writing up the description, setting the price, and in all aspects of promoting my home to sell so quickly. She is an excellent realtor. I would definitely recommend her as an agent to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Melissa was fabulous. She listened to what I wanted and delivered just that! Above all this was my first time purchasing a home and I virtually knew nothing. Melissa was so knowledgeable about the entire process. I learned so much working with her and it was a pleasure to get to know her.

As I mentioned above, Melissa Stevenson is an excellent broker and a very enthusiastic person. She was committed to selling my house, which she did very successfully in the slow season. I was comfortable with her, and could count on the fact that she would return any calls, emails, or texts immediately and answer all my questions. She made selling my house a very positive experience. I would definitely recommend her to my friends.
Martha Craig Peoria, IL
Melissa was fantastic!! She was always willing to help us when we had questions. I love that she explained everything so we understood what was going. I was so thankful that my friends recommended her to us. Don't hesitate to call on her. Hopefully in the future when I need to get a bigger house for a bigger family she will be available to help us again. Thank you Melissa for everything from the bottom of our hearts.

Neighborhoods with high rates of homeownership have less crime and more civic engagement. Additionally, studies show that homeowners are happier and healthier than renters, and their children do better in school.1 But one of the…Read More
