‟ I don't think there was a better person to help us find our first home! Melanie was absolutely wonderful from start to finish, which is especially noteworthy considering we were buying a home in Philadelphia while we were still living in Texas. My husband and I came up one weekend to look at houses with two different realtors, both of whom were v ery well-reviewed on Zillow. Melanie was hands-down the best of the two: she was so down-to-earth and honest, and felt more like a very knowledgeable friend than a realtor. I was looking for a realtor who would be our advocate but wouldn't try push us into a home that wasn't right, and that's exactly what Melanie did. She truly wants her clients to be happy, and that shows through everything she does. At one house that needed a lot of work, she told us "This isn't the house for you. I don't want you to put an offer on this." At another house that was recently remodeled but didn't have a bathtub, she said "If you want a family, this house isn't right for you." She always gave her honest opinion when we asked and always had our best interests in mind. We looked at a total of 15 houses that weekend, and we fell in love with the last house we looked at. It was listed low because the seller wanted to sell it fast. When we told Melanie that we were thinking of offering $20,000 above asking, she was so supportive and encouraging. She didn't care that it would hurt her list price to selling price ratio--all she cared about was that we loved the house and we were comfortable with our offer. There were six other bids on the house, but we won out because we went with our gut and offered what we thought the house was truly worth. I'm so glad that Melanie didn't discourage us from offering a higher amount. After our bid was accepted, Melanie connected us to an amazing company that financed our loan--they were really responsive and were always available to answer questions. We cannot be more thankful of Melanie and all she did for us! If we sell this home, we will 100% use Melanie again. ” Read More ▾

‟Melanie McConnell is the BEST. I can't say enough good things! I sold my house with her a couple years ago and had a full cash offer the first day on the market. When it came time to buy something t his year, she was just as helpful, showing us tons of places and making sure we got the best deal on one we loved.”

‟We've used a few realtors before and, whilst they did their jobs and we were largely satisfied with them, I never really felt like we'd received an A+ service. Melanie is the A+ standard. She was the perfect realtor for our needs; responsive, knowledgeable, and with the added bonus of having grown up in our target neighborhood, making us feel comfo rtable from the get-go. She was able to answer our questions and, where applicable, she used her network of connected professionals to get us the advice we needed. When it came to closing the deal, it was all wrapped up with minimal fuss and she got us the price we were hoping for. Perhaps the best compliment we can give Melanie is that we never felt like we were being pushed or pulled in one direction; she knew when her advice was needed and also when we just needed to vent or ramble. She really struck a perfect balance. She also has an awesome, down-to-earth sense of humor that we found really refreshing! We cannot recommend her highly enough and would love to continue working with her in the future” Read More ▾

‟We first met Melanie during a blizzard in Center City, where she spent the day showing us around graduate hospital despite the weather...almost a year later she helped us close on our dream home in Manayunk. As a first time homebuyer, Melanie made the process smooth and easy to understand. I always felt like she had our back and there was never a t ime when she wasn't available to help us. Melanie always went the extra step - she is definitely a person you want in your corner. I HIGHLY recommend Melanie” Read More ▾

‟I was a first time home buyer scouring the internet for a place to buy in South Philly. I was new and somewhat timid about the buying process, but Melanie at McCann was a godsend. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the mortgage process and the Philadelphia home market in general. Her professionalism and exceptional service was greatly appreciat ed. I would recommend McCann to anyone looking to buy a home in Philadelphia” Read More ▾

‟It was our first time purchasing a home and we were very fortunate to have Melanie as our agent! From the beginning she was very patient in explaining the whole home buying process. When we began to look at properties, she was great in teaching us what to look for in a house and giving us her honest valuation of each property. Furthermore, Melanie is always available via phone/email and would try to get us showings as soon as properties hit the market. When our initial offers fell through, Melanie was always encouraging and trying to keep our spirits up. When we finally got our dream house, we could not be happier! In short, if you want someone who will treat you like family, give you truthful opinions on each property, and go the extra mile to make sure you get your dream home, then Melanie is your gal” Read More ▾

‟Working with Melanie McConnell was a great experience and I highly recommend her to anyone buying a house. It was my first time buying a house and it was made easy because of Melanie. She also introduced me to the best people to work with for all phases of the process.”

‟I moved into the city almost 4 years ago from New Jersey. It was a tough decision for my husband who had grown up in New Jersey and wanted a small garden and a porch. I can’t believe Melanie found us a house with a garden and a porch in the city the same day it was listed (after looking for a few months). We made an appointment immediately as Melan ie McConnell said the house was priced to sell and that if we wanted this house we would need to move quickly, so that’s what we did. We made a great offer and the owner accepted! We did not expect a seller’s assist since the house was priced slightly lower than market. Because of Melanie’s diligence, we did receive a seller’s assist. I would never buy or sell a prop-erty without Melanie. ” Read More ▾

‟Melanie is amazing. This was our first home-buying experience and and it was a very emotional and stressful process. I would not have wanted anybody but Melanie to guide us through it. She made us feel like her top priority and went above and beyond. She was always available to answer questions and show us houses on sometimes very short notice. The whole process gave a me a lot of anxiety but she was always there to give me reassurance and I trusted her 100%. She made it fun, too! I cannot imagine working with anyone else and if we ever buy again, we will absolutely work with Melanie. She was the best thing that happened to us in this crazy market” Read More ▾
