Melissa went above and beyond for us! Between buying and selling, she made the process much less stressful. She always responded within a timely manner, was always there to help, never pressured us into anything we didn’t want to do, explained everything we didn’t understand or needed help with, was 100% honest, and was always friendly. I would highly recommend working with her!
Melissa did an amazing job, truly going above and beyond to get my home sold. Since I didn't live in Fairbanks, she had to take care of everything for me-- dealing with renters, contractors, and perspective buyers. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who needs a Realtor.

Melissa is very knowledgeable about the real estate process, and was able to walk us through every step while answering any questions we had promptly. She took time to ensure everything was communicated to parties honestly and openly, and represented us in the best way. She did everything she could to help us sell our house quickly and easily. Overall it was a great experience!
Seller
I would highly recommend anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in Fairbanks to Melissa Richardson. When she was not able find what her client was looking for in the current Fairbanks market she reached out to my husband and I to see if we were interested in selling our commercial real estate. Even though we were not considering it at the time she worked with her buyer to bring us a very attractive offer that we could not refuse. Since we are no longer living in Fairbanks she helped facilitate the repairs and scheduled an inspection that we could all attend. Melissa was very knowledgeable about the sale of commercial property and kept us informed the whole time. She was a pleasure to work with and made the process stress free. Melissa went above and beyond what we expected in a Realtor. We would defiantly recommend her and use her again.
Heavy equipment Operator
Melissa helped us buy our house 5 years ago and then also helped us sell it as we are moving out of state. Melissa was always professional and worked hard for us. she's also very knowledgeable and connected within the community. I would recommend her to anyone who's looking to buy or sell
Melissa was amazing. She was organized and professional and incredibly accommodating with our situation (house hunting from another state). Once we had our hearts set on a house Melissa guided us through the process from offer to close and made sure we were in our new home by the holidays. She even left us a little house warming gift that put a smile on our face on move-in day.

Melissa provided a superb home selling experience. Melissa was always on point with her recommendations and went above and beyond to facilitate the sell of my home. She listened to what I had to say and then implemented what I requested. Even if what I requested was different than what she recommended she always was respectful and did what I wanted. She never got frustrated or difficult to work with even when issues beyond her control were presented. Melissa was always available via phone and email and returned messages quickly. She was thoughtful and informative during the home selling process. She brings a multitude of services to the home selling and buying process. Several times she went above and beyond what the scope of her duties to facilitate the sell of my home. I am very happy with the services she provided.

In a housing market that benefited from great interest rates, and lots of competition in the 300's price point, you still need a professional in your corner. We were fortunate to have Melissa Sue Richardson. Although there are still many homes still listed, and the buyers still looking, our home is sold & closed. Thats what you want. Meet with Melissa and get yous SOLD!
Firefighter
We gave Melissa a lot of challenges when we were looking for a home. 1st, we were out of State, we wanted to be in a certain area that we could keep our horses as well as stay within our budget. Another realtor told us it wasn’t likely we would find what we are looking for in our price range. Melissa found us a great home four our family of 7 as well as our horses. She worked closely with us and the sellers agent to work through a few more hurdles and was able to make our family’s dream a reality. I would recommend Melissa hands down for anyone considering buying or selling a home!

Melissa did a phenomenal job with the sale of our house. Her advice on all points was invaluable. She was prompt to respond to email/messages and never steered us wrong.

Its been said " There's no time like the present" and that was true with our Condo purchase. We had been seriously looking to buy a retirement condo in Fairbanks for about 6 months. When the "One" showed up, Melissa went in to action, and made sure we were in first position. Transactions in real estate are not always straightforward, and this one was no exception. Melissa's knowledge of this market and network of professionals, saved the day for us. We hope when your ready, you will experience the professional service we enjoyed. call Melissa.

I had the pleasure of working with Melissa about a year ago to purchase my first home which was a condo. Melissa is very pleasant to work with, very professional and thorough at her job. She cares and is excited to share the experience of owning a home and puts in a lot of effort to make it happen. She went the extra mile and was dedicated to educating me on the steps, making the negotiations, and keeping me informed and involved in the process. I am very happy with my new home and grateful to Melissa for all of her hard work to help me make a dream come true. I can’t recommend her enough.
When a co-worker heard that I was in the market to buy a house, she recommended Melissa, and I'm thrilled she did! Word of mouth is the type of reference I truly appreciate.
Melissa is knowledgeable about all aspects of home buying, honest and a super hard worker. She never tried to sell me on anything, being only concerned that I was truly happy about the house. If Melissa didn't know the answer to a question, she quickly found out.
I have already recommended Melissa to others who are in the market, and will continue to do so. Also, when and if I am in the position to sell my home, you can be sure I'll be calling Melissa once again!
