Melissa is great! Would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home. Friendly and energetic. Very knowledgeable of the areas and houses in general. Fast response to all our questions. Great at negotiating with the seller. Thanks to her the whole process went smoothly. If it weren't for her we wouldn't have the house we love. Thank you Melissa!

School Counselor
I am very grateful for all the hard work and patience Melissa had for me and my son. Being newly separated, she made a difficult situation easier to handle because she was knowledgeable on everything that needed done.
She also fought for me when multiple offers came in on the townhouse we wanted and won! She even had the sellers include appliances!
Finally, she helped connect me to contractors to do the needed work on our new home.
I greatly appreciated her availability and assistance!

Purchasing a condo, 1.000 miles from home, while our son was in college, was a smart move.
Keeping it, after he graduated was dumb.

I attempted to find tenants, and rent it from my home in NJ, was not very efficient, putting it in the hand of a property management firm was an improvement, but I often thought, that they were taking better care of the tenant, than me.

Finally, the decision was made to sell, as a Realtor in Haddonfield for over 40 years, I contacted our associate office in Charlotte, where I had the good fortune to reach, Melissa. After almost a year's delay in listing the property,
(the tenant extended his lease) Melissa went to work for me. First,she had to
resolve, some of the short comings, of our property management team, and get the property ready to be shown. Melissa, kept me well informed with the events taking place, but supplied photos to clearly explain situations, as well.

In a very short time we had multiple offers come in. Even though, I have many years, of experience in real estate, I became a greedy seller, and decided to take the highest offer. Melissa, quickly pointed out some differences in laws in her state, which made a alternative offer, more advantageous. Understanding her suggestion, I quickly agreed.
Having Melissa as my agent, made me feel as though, I had an experienced family member looking out for my best interests.

I highly recommend Melissa Zimmerman, for any and all of your real estate needs.

Melissa is the hardest working realtor out there. She was extremely diligent; going above and beyond on all fronts. I would highly recommend her to anyone relocating the Charlotte area!

Huntersville homeowners at last!

Working with the Meiser family was a blessing and delight. Relocating from another area is never easy, but finding the perfect home was!

Melissa was so patient taking me around to see so many houses. We had a specific need and she create a website for us so we could see all the homes with master on main. She provided invaluable advice on the area, which homes were overpriced, which ones were good deals and worked with us to get the best possible price for us. I would recommend Melissa to anyone looking for a great realtor. Thanks for everything you did for us.

We recently worked Melissa during a corporate relocation. We were under a significant time crunch to find the right house for our family. Melissa was flexible with her schedule, making herself readily available to us in a time sensitive situation. She helped us hone in on the right house for us quickly, finding us the perfect home for our growing family. She was also extremely helpful after we made an offer, helping us to make the buying process go as smoothly as possible! I would readily recommend Melissa to anyone looking for a home in the Charlotte area.

Melissa Zimmerman is the best in her business. She worked so hard for us as we bought our first house this year. Trusting, caring, hard working and so knowledgeable as she explained every single step of the process. She really made this new adventure in our lives a great experience and when we are ready to move up from a townhouse to a house we will absolutely be working with Melissa again. (Give us 5 years!!) As purchasing a new construction home we encountered a few minor delays and we had so many questions - she fought for us and seriously handled everything as if we were her only client. I will be recommending her to anyone who is looking to buy in the Carolinas. Thank you a million times for everything, we can't ever repay you!! Cheers until next time!

To say Melissa is a hard worker is an understatement. She really went to bat for us as a buyer in a seller's market with low inventory. She has a thorough knowledge base of the Mecklenburg and Cabarrus County market. To top it all off she is a pleasure to work with and is a great friend. We love our new home thanks to her recommendations and advice. We have never been happier thanks to Melissa!

We have known Melissa both professionally and as a valued friend for several years. Helping people find their dream home is a natural calling for her and she is an asset to the real estate profession. We would recommend Melissa to absolutely anyone.

From start to finish Melissa did a great job for us. When we moved to the area she helped us find a rental - which was no small feat. Then 18 months later, she hung in there to help us find just the right house.
Melissa served us well and we would recommended her to anyone looking for a full service agent.

Hunt family closing day!

I am so happy to see this amazing family finally in their new home. It has been a long journey and I enjoyed every minute of it!

Melissa is one of the hardest working people I know. She has sold multiple properties for us and we have been happy every step of the way. She has always been available when we need her. We appreciate that she is honest, upfront, and always looked out for our best interest.

Managing Director
Melissa was amazing from start to finish on our complicated year long voyage together! We were living in London and needed to fix our old home in Charlotte to ready it for a sale listing, we also were looking to build a new home in Skybrook. Melissa was an amazing partner, she consulted with the contractors on what needed to be fixed for sale, she checked up on the quality of the work, she listed it and had it sold in less than one week after listing. She was our partner and our eyes, ears and brains while we were an ocean away. Her ability to update us and coordinate with us was fantastic. She also went above and beyond in marketing and holding open houses and checking up with the potential buyer's realtors to make a sale happen. Also when it came to her support in purchasing our new home, she was also a fantastic partner and consultant. We picked out the lot remotely and she went out to check out several lots and then called us to offer up advice, she also sent photos and worked with the builder to coordinate. She attended the session with me to pick out our home choices and upgrades and offered very practical advice and I am thrilled with our choices, the house looks amazing! Lastly she was a keen eye for detail when we did our walk through and this was appreciated to ensure the home was in the top form for final closing. Lastly she was there at closing to ensure all finalized and she gave us an amazing personalized housewarming gift. Melissa was referred to me by a close friend and I will certainly continue to pass on and recommend Melissa as she is ace! I have NEVER worked with such a full stop support realtor. I honestly feel like after this year long journey she is more than a realtor, I consider her a friend. I can not recommend her enough to anyone that is about to start a journey to either sell a home, buy a new one or both. She will give you the honest truth and she is so responsive. Melissa thanks for all that you did for our family!

I don't know where to begin with how amazing our recent experience has been with Melissa Zimmerman of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Carolinas Realty - Lake Norman. I've lived in Charlotte for nearly 7 years, but have spent my time in rental properties because I felt I didn't want to deal with the hassle of purchasing a home.

In late March, I decided I would look into purchasing a home when my current landlord decided to sell the house I was renting…leaving me "homeless" by the end of April. I reached out to Melissa via social media explaining my circumstances and desire to purchase a home. Within 48 hours Melissa had lined up no less than ten homes to view over a 24 hr period; Melissa was relentless in making sure I was not homeless come the end of April.

By 4/14 we had a submitted and accepted offer; we closed on 4/28 and my family moved into our new home on 4/29. Yes, I've left a lot of the finer details out of this reference... like the fact that I was on vacation for 2 1/2 weeks out of the 4 weeks Melissa and I worked together, like the fact that the first house failed inspections and we had to withdraw the offer, like the sessions between Melissa and I as we Skype toured homes while I was in Phoenix handling my son's wedding.... but I think you get the big picture, Melissa is amazing and will absolutely go the extra hundred miles for you!

Melissa, you’re extraordinary! From the bottoms of our hearts…. My family and I thank you for being such an amazing and compassionate person! We were blessed to find you and Berkshire Hathaway is lucky to have you as a valued member of their team! You’re part of our family now, and most definitely on our Christmas list!!!
