Thanks for all your help in making our "dream home" a reality. We really appreciated that you went the extra mile to get us the best price for our home. You are truly a professional.
In all our dealings with Realtors over the past ten years, we have never met anyone as helpful and energetic as you have been. Without hesitation, we would highly recommend your service to anyone who is looking for an experienced Realtor who cares about getting things done and doing them right! Thanks for taking such good care of us, we couldn't have done it without you!
Thank you so much for taking the extra effort to make our first home purchase successful. You were there guiding us through all the crucial and important steps! You really listened to what we wanted in our home and you found exactly what we were looking for - at an amazing price! If we ever outgrow this home, we'll definitely be calling you!
You made buying a home so easy for my wife and I. We were grateful for how much patience you used in answering all of our questions and taking us to look at so many houses. You never pushed us into looking at something we were not interested in. We strongly recommend you to anyone looking at buying a new home.
Thank you for taking the time to do a CMA for us. It was clear you put a lot of effort into it and I especially appreciated the extra time you spent going over it with me in detail. I feel better prepared for the selling process because of your efforts. Thanks again for all your time and effort! J. Hedman
We searched and searched through all the Thank You cards at Hallmark for just the right one. I discovered this one and knew it was perfect considering the circumstances.

Melanie...thank you again for your generous support and donation to the Officers and Enlisted Spouses Club function. The gift cards were the perfect addition to our baskets.

Melanie Gates is an outstanding agent. During the slow market, our house sold to only the second buyer prospect at a price that couldn't be beat. We've used her not only to buy and to sell our home in Goldsboro, but we also call on her whenever the Air Force moves us. Thanks Melanie! Capt. Paul and Tracy Siegler
Gordon and I enjoyed working with Melanie Gates. She covered all our needs and then some. If we know of anybody looking for a house, we will be sure to send them her way in the future. Melanie was really on the ball right from the start of things and that was really appreciated. Thank you Melanie for making our house a home! Great job. Msgt. Gordon and Tonie Clark
Just wanted to drop you a line about the wonderful service we received from one of your agents, Melanie Gates. She was extremely helpful and very professional in the sale of our home in Goldsboro. After a very disappointing attempt with another local Realtor, we were glad to see not all is lost in the Realty profession. Melanie provided us with constant updates and dependable service throughout the time period we were listed with her and she gained our trust from the outset. Though I doubt we will ever be in the Goldsboro area again, we would certainly refer your company and Melanie Gates to anyone we may come into contact with that may be headed that way. Just prior to moving, we did meet a few people that had moved from this area to Goldsboro, a small world it is! Once again, splendid service on Melanie's part! Lt. Col. (Ret) Mike and Megan Morrison
Melanie did a great job on both our purchase of our new home and the sale of our old home. She was able to expertly negotiate for us and was able to make us deals that I thought were impossible. I thought we would be losing money on our old home but we ended up making a profit. All in all a wonderful time spent shopping and we are extremely happy in our new home!! Carol Pereira
Our house hunt started months before we ever viewed a house. During that time she was very thorough in answering all our questions and provided valuable insight into many things we hadn't even thought of. Once we started viewing she was always honest and pointed out issues she knew were important to us and guided us through the whole process. user5248600

Melanie helped us put together a list of homes to look at and worked around our schedule to tour them. This was very helpful because we lived out of the state at the time.

That process was very smooth. Donald and Linda Gibbs

Presently, my wife and I have the wonderful opportunity to have Mrs. Gates as our real estate agent. I retired from the US Military with 30 years of honorable service on August 31, 2013. Being a disabled Veteran with multiple disabilities, Ms. Gates has been phenomenal in helping and assisting us in selling our home. USAA which is a wonderful organization that helps Military members and their Families listed here as a contact person for us to connect with in our decisions. Not only did Mrs. Gates respond in a timely manner, she treated us with a high level of professionalism and a genuine concern in helping us locate multiple properties. It's very rare to meet someone like Mrs. Gates who really cares about people and their well-being. I refer to her as an Angel here on earth. Mrs. Gates has shown us properties that are within our budget and has educated us on real estate matters that I never knew existed. I wish that she could give training seminars to individuals who are in the process of buying and selling their homes. I would recommend her to my Family members, Military and Civilian, and dearest friends because she is a honest, caring, and great person and individual to know. If I know anyone that is interested in real estate information or buying and selling a home, I will definitely recommend Mrs. Gates and no one else. She has been a blessing to my wife and I and I will definitely let USAA know just how well we are being treated under the care and guidance of Mrs. Gates. William & Michelle Lowry

Melanie was my God send! Buying a home can wreck havoc on your nerves, yet Melanie took the time to listen to my needs, wants, in addition, she offered helpful suggestions that I other wise would not have thought of during this stressful time. She was upfront, honest and went out of her way to be readily available for my every need. I can't count how many homes she took me too, a few she knew I wouldn't want, yet she took the time to allow me to make the ultimate decision, even though it was a waste of her time. You will be grateful and fortunate to have Melanie on your side! Tina D.
