Kayla Brockett recommends Melissa Haugh

Melissa is simply amazing! She is highly professional, knowledgeable, kind, and honest. This was our first experience in buying a house, and Melissa answered every question we could think of and offered answers to so many more questions we never even knew we'd want to ask!
She made sure we were kept in the loop on every step through the process and helped educate us on what was really happening, even if it was behind the scenes.
She has even made sure to keep in touch with us after we've moved in and has continued to be responsive in answering any more questions we've had for her.
Melissa really goes above and beyond for whoever she is working with to make sure they have the best experience possible, even after the "job" is complete.
We really couldn't have asked for anyone better. You'll never go wrong if you choose to work with Melissa!

Client and Insurance Agent

Melissa has helped me personally buy a home in Willow Glen and most recently helped my Mom re-enter the Bay Area into a nice Condo in the villages. The process was so smooth and efficient and while Melissa is friendly and a go getter she also has a great attention to detail. Melissa went above and beyond both for me and for my Mom which I so appreciate! Thank you Melissa!

Alexis Butler recommends Melissa Haugh

Registered Nurse and Housewife

My husband and I could not have been happier when working with Melissa! As previous home owners, we had our fair share of experiences with realtors, each being less than stellar. When we connected with Melissa to purchase a rental property, it was a dream come true. What can typically be a dry, stressful and often taxing process, Melissa made easy, organized and actually enjoyable!

From the moment we met with Melissa to discuss our needs until even after the keys were in hand, she made herself accessible for every question and detail. Melissa truly cares about her clients and their experience and it showed in her attention to detail, willingness to answer any question and honest assessment of each aspect of the purchase. Her caring, eager and positive attitude to ensure a smooth transaction for each client was much appreciated.

A home purchase can be overwhelming. Melissa’s vast knowledge of the local area, industry resources and local contractors and tradesman appear unmatched. Every single suggestion she made and contact she shared were absolutely fantastic!

My husband and I have already discussed working with Melissa on future transactions and would never hesitate to recommend her to family and friends. In an area that seems filled with realtors, Melissa truly shines as a standout. Her kindness, integrity and pride in her work are unmatched!

Executive Assistant

I am so grateful to my broker referring me to Melissa. I had met with a couple other realtors, but she demonstrated from the get-go that she was the one that was going to get our home sold quickly and smoothly. She was very knowledgeable, responsive, professional, and very personable too. And her team was fantastic to work with as well! The first person who comes to mind when a friend or family member is moving should absolutely be Melissa Haugh of KW Realty.

Irene Moustakas recommends Melissa Haugh

Mortgage Broker

I am a mortgage broker and worked with Melissa on a transaction assisting buyers in their purchase of an investment property. Their offer beat out at least 11 others (it may have been more), and I have no doubt that it was because of her sharp negotiation skills. 

In addition to her strong work ethic and diligence, she is such a wonderful and personable individual, and this goes such a long way in any real estate transaction. I have had the opportunity to refer Melissa to other clients of mine (both for buying as well as selling), and they are all as impressed and happy with her as I feel they should be. Thank you, Melissa, for your attentiveness and care!

Melissa is a wonderful agent. She goes above and beyond to get your property sold. She has help us with buying a bank owned property which can be very time consuming and frustrating purchase.

She also achievd getting our investment property repaired after renters destroyed it and the completing the sale and repairs within only five weeks with out us there.

Lastly, she loves helping people with selling and buying of properties and it shows.

Melissa is awesome in both the buying and selling side. Her attentiveness to our needs was superb and not a single detail was missed. She also provides a high level of attentiveness and visibility to the milestones in the progress. And on top of it all she is a wonderful person to work with!

Partner at Brand Lightning

There is no better real estate expert than Melissa! She is simply THE BEST of the best! My husband and I worked with Melissa to buy our home in Los Gatos in July and then sell our San Jose house in September. We trusted her completely to find us the right home when it came to buying and the right buyer for selling. We will never work with anybody else again as long as Melissa is in the real estate business. All realtors can learn so much from her -- attention to detail, proactive thoughtfulness, access to industry resources, organization, an impeccable reputation after many years of being in this field, and more. She does it all with complete professionalism and an amazing, helpful attitude. Plus, she is just a really nice person to know and now an honor for us to call a friend.

Jim and Dixie Parker recommend Melissa Haugh

We can't say enough good things about the job Melissa did selling our house. Our house sold within about 7 days and got top dollar for our neighborhood. I interviewed several real estate agents before selecting Melissa . When I interviewed her, she had me in her first statements saying that her job was to make our transition as easy as possible. We had lived in our home for 32 years and were downsizing and moving to be closer to our adult children. Melissa had the expertise to solve any problem that came our way and provided assistance with reliable people to do the jobs needed to have the house ready to sell. We were amazed as Melissa hired a stager at her expense to stage our house and it looked wonderful. They brought in movers to move our furniture out and to bring new furniture in with great accessories. Melissa went above and beyond in being wiling to answer and assist with any concerns or questions during the entire process. She is one of the best realtors so we would recommend her to all of our friends and to you.

Mike & Jennifer Guzman recommend Melissa Haugh

Melissa is not only a consummate professional but also a tireless advocate for her clients. She was well prepared for each meeting and diligent in following up on any requests. It was a sheer joy to have her steer us through the current competitive housing market, especially as first time home buyers who are new to the Bay Area. We would readily recommend her as someone who goes above and beyond and who deserves our deepest gratitude. Thanks again!

I can't thank Laura Peterson's office enough for guiding my son through his unfortunate series of events. Fortunately he was not hurt but the motorcycle was a total loss. They helped him dealing with the other insurance company, making sure he was compensated fairly. And they were always supportive of his anxious mother (me!) even giving him life suggestions ("maybe don't get another motorcycle").

Your office is always attentive to my insurance needs. When I call they automatically review my policies and make sure I have what I need, not too much, not too little. My insurance is just right! Thanks

Jon Alexander recommends Melissa Haugh

Melissa was referred to me by a friend who does a lot of RE transactions in the area, so she came with a very strong recommendation. I called her to help me transform my rental for sale and maximize profit. It became clear from day one that she was absolutely passionate about her work and 110% committed to do an excellent job for me. Her extensive experience working with both homeowners and investors has given her a 360degree understanding of how to cost effectively prepare a house for sale while delivering a high quality living space that would make people proud to call their new home. She provided great ideas all along the way from paint colors to lighting styles and was truly available 24/7. She has an eagle eye for details, and not a single paint chip or ding in the door casing would pass her inspection.

The end result? We sold the house in 3 days with multiple offers way above asking and achieved the highest $/sqft in a 6 block radius. I will be calling Melissa for all my future RE transactions.

I have been a State Farm customer for 35+ years, and the responsiveness from Laura's staff is an improvement over what I experienced from the previous Los Gatos agent's employees.

I feel that my questions are answered in a welcoming manner and that the staff is knowledgeable & want to assist. Jennifer has been very responsive and helpful in clarifying premiums and offering ways to minimize the cost. I recommend this State Farm office for their excellent customer service.

Engineer & Housewife

Before we met Melissa Haugh, we were shopping for a realtor to sell our home in Campbell. We wanted to find someone who was familiar with this area where we lived for about 10 years. Surprisingly we found this task more challenging than what we initially thought it would be. Many of the realtors we talked to were cold and the brief experience gave us the impression that we needed their service more than they need us.
Fortunately, my sister’s fiance overheard that we were looking for a realtor and referred us to Melissa. We quickly knew that we had found the right person after we spoke with her over the phone. She seemed genuinely down to earth and we felt like she’s the person we could easily trust. Melissa meticulously went through the entire process with us in person and made sure any questions we had were answered. More importantly, she sold us on her game plan and how she will succeed for us on selling our home. I remembered one conversation I had with Melissa where I asked her what was the longest period she had experienced before selling a home. She answered, ‘two months.’ I then asked her, ‘what happens if you can’t sell our home within that time frame?’ She answered, ‘it’ll never happen.’ I asked again, ‘just what if..’ Melissa confidently said, ‘it never happens. I will quit my job if it does!’ The confidence I saw in her that day was very powerful and honestly this is the kind of person I want on my side fighting for me!
Melissa was our quarterback and we followed her lead without hesitation! She gave us a list of chores to do to make our home more appealing to prospective buyers, like adding mulch to the front, removing the screen door and pressure washing the pavers in the back. She also suggested we should paint the exterior of house and referred us to a reliable handyman that could do the job at a very reasonable price. Melissa saw that we had our hands full with newborn infants (twin girls) and went out of her way to accommodate our schedule. She made sure we were aware of all the inspections needed and kept us in the loop with weekly updates. Prior to the Open House, the home was stragetically staged with small eligant furniture to give the appearance of a more open layout plan. We trusted Melissa to provide our home with the maximum exposure necessary to sell.
The Open House showing was extremely successful with up to 70 groups in one day. Over the weekend, we received six strong bids with the highest bid well over $300K of the listing price!
We are extremely grateful to have met Melissa. She has far exceeded our expectations. Her recommendations were spot on! Melissa predicted Spring would be the best time to put our home on the market and scheduled all inspections early to make this happen. She also provided a recommendation on what the reasonable price should be to list the home at as well as when to accept bid offers. We felt the entire process went through flawlessly from beginning to end, according to Melissa’s game plan. The experience was very enjoyable and we would definitely recommend her service to any of our family and friends! Thank you!
