We really lucked out when a friend recommended Melissa Valenti as a top realtor in center city Philadelphia, where we were looking to buy a condo. Melissa is… extremely professional, amazingly knowledgeable, reliable, and totally delightful. We faced two hurdles: Covid 19 and a very specific limited market. Through her personal contacts and relationships, as well as her in-depth knowledge of the market, Melissa found not only our dream abode in the sky at the perfect location for us, but also a condo that was still off market. Imagine being spared of the stress to have to compete with multiple bids in a very tough sellers market! Melissa’s creative skills at guiding the process through a pandemics were invaluable for both us and the sellers. Within a few hours of the approval of the state authorities to resume property visitation, Melissa had secured a visit of the condo, while assuring a COVID protocol for everybody’s safety. Moreover, she is a limitless source of information on everything connected with housing, from painters, plumbers, to handymen or carpets, refrigerators, or washing machines… She understands your taste and your needs. As an older couple , who had not bought real estate in over 30 years, Melissa was the answer to our prayers. She made the process easy, smooth, confortable, and yes, even pleasant. We felt that we were in good, steady, and caring hands from start to finish. We really lucked out! Thank you, thank you, Melissa!
