"My experience working with Melissa was a real pleasure. Melissa remained on top of everything and kept me well informed. From sending me listings in the area I was interested in to finding the right house for my needs, to helping through the bid process, into the sale and final escrow close. I would recommend her as a friendly courteous real estate agent to all my friends and family."

I'm a senior citizen that has been helped twice by Melissa Bliss when she helped me find a home to rent for myself and my dog's. Melissa to me is the type of realator who cares first about her clients. Weather it's finding you a home to rent or the perfect home to buy for you needs. I encourage anyone in need of a home to contact Melissa and she will help you.

Buyer
Melissa helped my husband and I purchase a second home. We initially started our search locally, in the east bay, for a rental income property. After quite some time of looking, our goal for the second home and thus our search parameters changed and we ultimately expanded the search area and started looking for a vaction property within a couple of hours of our primary residence. Despite our shift in interests, Melissa was patient, encouraging and willing to travel the distance to show us homes that were outside of her typical area. She is knowledgeable, always upbeat and truly a pleasure to work with. If you are looking for a great home buying experience with an agent who will go the extra mile, you've certainly come to the right place!

Melissa is great. She worked around my scheduled, showed me a ton of places and helped me find a nice place in my budget. I highly recommend her for your home buying experience.

Previous Home Buyers & Newlyweds
Last year, my finance and I (now husband) made the decision to purchase our first home. Even though we were in the middle of planning our wedding, it made more financial sense to invest in property than waste money on rent.

We reached out to my close friend Melissa Bliss to be our Realtor, as I had full confidence in her to find us a great house. My finance was also very confident in her, as she had previously worked with one of his friends in finding them a house a few years ago.

Melissa explained that inventory was low, as many people were still under water with their homes, and in our price range we would be up against investors with cash offers, but with the right offer and a little patience we would be able to find a home that fit our must haves. In addition, interest rates and housing prices were still low, so it was a great time to buy a home.

Working with Melissa during an already busy time in our lives was a wonderful experience. She took the time to answer all of our questions and was very knowledgeable regarding the rules and regulations of conventional vs. FHA loan offers, purchasing from a bank vs. a home owner, and home inspections and contingencies. In addition, she was great about worked directly with our loan officer and Title Company to make sure she was properly advising us when making an offer and closing the deal.

With Melissa’s great direction and persistence we had an offer accepted within 45 days of looking at houses and we closed 30 days later. We had looked at many houses in Contra Costa County and nine offers were rejected before we found our home. Melissa’s great personality and strong reputation helped to push our final offer through.

We have recommended Melissa to all of our friends and family and even our loan officer recommends her to his clients. She is such a pleasure to work with and she takes some of the pain out of buying a home.

Melissa, you helped me find a home that I would feel comfortable and pleased with. You were understanding and took the time to explain my options when I did not understand, you helped me to understand. I was a first time home buyer and I am very pleased with the home we found. You made it less stressful for me. Thank you for all your patience and time.
