We were looking for acreage, preferably with a house on it, but mostly looking for a beautiful piece of country property. We had been looking on our own for weeks. Then Town & Country Realty had a listing we wanted to view. We called their office and Melissa Cherbas answered the phone! She was so pleasant from the very beginning. She offered to come right out and show us the property that very day. We had questions, she gave us the answers. If she didn’t have the answers she found them! She always returned our calls or texts in a timely manner. This was just the beginning of what turned into weeks of searching. Melissa was faithfully there for us every time we requested a showing. In today’s market, you must have a REALTOR® who really listens to your needs and who is quick and efficient with getting the offer in first position. Melissa navigated this highly competitive market with professional skill and kindness. One rainy afternoon after my husband and I had spent another entire day looking (on our own) so as to not bother Melissa unless we found something that passed the “drive-by” test. We drove by this beautiful country setting. There was a gate, as we gazed through the gate in the pouring down rain, we knew we wanted to walk the 7 acres. We called Melissa to see if she could make the call to the listing agent so we could just take a “walk around”, but Melissa said: “how about I just come right over!” She came over and we all walked around in the rain falling in love with this beautiful acreage we now call home. Seven beautiful acres with mature fruit trees, pasture land complete with two creeks meandering through. Melissa watched over the entire transaction (we were selling one house and buying another simultaneously) and she made all the necessary connections in perfect timing. Melissa rises above all the others in my book!
