Donbob1515 – Sold a home in DeKalb

“Good morning Melissa. We have been busy adjusting to our new home but now want to tell you just how much you mean to us. Where do we begin. How about telling people -“How do you sell your home?”

The answer is simple–FIND A FANTASTIC REALTOR! For my wife and me, it was through the Hometown Realty Group located in Sycamore, Illinois. Melissa and her wonderful staff were people with the experience and today’s technology for marketing our home. They have the expertise to market to an area of over 200 miles. The facts speak for themselves. We listed our home in DeKalb on June 1, 2017 with Hometown Realty Group and within one week have had more traffic than the three months before with another Realtor. In fact, she sold our home in 10 days– asking price, no contingencies and a cash offer. We had other offers prior to the one we accepted. We closed the transaction on June 27, 2017 (27 days from our listing date).

We are so extremely happy that we changed realtors and found Melissa and her staff to represent us in selling our home.”

She answered every question I could think of and was always quick to respond. I can’t think of anything she could have done to make this a more enjoyable or speedy experience.”

“Melissa was great! I live out of town and needed help selling my home in DeKalb. Her and her team often went over and beyond to ensure my unique needs were met and ultimately sold my house at asking price.”

“We had been renting our town home for past two years as we relocated out of state. We knew we wanted to sell at end of lease term so began searching for a realtor. Searched various realtors then found Melissa Mobile (on Zillow). What caught our eye was that her track record reflected current  sales in area of our home. In speaking with Melissa we were able to ascertain that she understood the market in our area and that she would use the most current marketing strategies to get lookers and in time a buyer. We would meet Melissa at the house where she helped us to know what to do to get the house ready for sale. Once ready, pictures were taken, a realtor open house scheduled, photos released for marketing, and as realtors brought prospective buyers in, kept us informed of their comments. This was helpful as in some cases we were able to respond to a concern voiced by the looker. One week from time it went on market, we had a sales contract. Melissa’s team didn’t stop at getting a buyer as we utilized an attorney she uses for sales and she would stay involved throughout the closing process to final closing 6 weeks later. Throughout our time we found her judgement to be solid and helpful when we needed to make decisions. She would go the extra mile to ensure all windows were closed, lights out, and temperature set appropriately after a showing. My wife and I highly recommend Melissa Mobile as a realtor for your particular need.”

Melissa and her team were patient with my husband and I in the process of purchasing our first home. They explained the process and were willing to work with us over the course of a few years in order to find our perfect home. Their exceptional customer service, support, and expertise allowed us to find the home of our dreams!

Melissa knows the market values very well, gave excellent advice on how to stage the house, and her marketing skills were just plain excellent. She made the process of selling our home an enjoyable experience, and was always there to answer any questions that came up. She was there to represent us in all respects. One word to express our feelings about the process with Melissa is EXCELLENT!

“Melissa impressed us greatly with her friendly, down-to-earth manner when we interviewed her. She took a look around our 1898 Victorian in downtown DeKalb and thought she could sell it (we had our doubts). She promised to market it to NIU, locally and widely through the Coldwell-Banker network. We  interviewed a very nice Realtor and ultimately chose Melissa for her energy, her team approach (in case she was busy there was someone else there to handle questions, paperwork, etc) and her great advice on pricing. We read the Zillow book and firmly believed in the rule of 9 and also in getting the home appraised to set the price at a fair level. While the price was not as high as we might have wished, it sold the day after the first open house. We are so grateful to Melissa for all the little things she did – serving food to the Realtors when they toured it on the Wednesday before the first open house, being there to calm our fears, and ultimately we closed on the house and were 100% satisfied with her TLC. We had not sold a home in 30 years so she helped us understand the importance of the internet. You can’t go wrong if you choose her. Good luck buying or selling a home!!”


“Melissa and her team far exceeded my expectations. Of the many impressive actions, one that really stands out is the fact that Melissa has a professional photographer to take photographs of your home to yield the best possible photographs online. Since most people do some online looking before they  ask to see a home in person, this was extremely important. All of the REALTORS who attended the broker open house felt that the house would receive an offer after 3-4 months; in fact, the offer came after only 3 weeks on the market. I believe this is due to the quality images and the exposure Melissa gives the properties she lists.”


“Melissa is FABULOUS!!!! She knows her stuff. She is well aware of the market and fair values. She has an eye for good construction and let’s you know when the property is lacking. She also has an eye for design and is able to give great ideas for homes that may need a little bit more love. Her  negotiating skills a bar none! Just when you think you can’t take anymore with the back and forth, she gives you the reminder that everything is going to be ok and then delivers the great news that you have been waiting for. She is an open book and doesn’t sugar coat anything which is very refreshing in this day in age when people aren’t as trustworthy as they once were. I would recommend Melissa to family, friends and strangers alike!! I actually carry her cards in my purse ready to hand out!”


“I am grateful for Melissa’s help in searching for our new home. She was patient, honest, KNOWLEDGABLE, and hands on. She graciously spoke on the phone often at 9:00 p.m. She helped us to rule out building a house and instead buy existing. With her experience in short sales, she advised us a course  of action with a favorable outcome I never would have expected. I will recommend her to anyone who asks for a local Realtor. THANK YOU Melissa!”
