‟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 ▾
‟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 ▾

I would recommend McCann to anyone looking to buy a home in Philadelphia” 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.”
‟My fiancé and I were property virgins. The whole idea of buying a home was exciting and daunting. I had originally wanted to use a friend-of-a-friend as our realtor but he was vacationing and wouldn't be available for weeks. As Melanie McConnell likes to say, "Things hap-pen for a reason." Melanie McConnell was the listing agent for the second or t … hird house we ever saw. Up until then, we just wanted to look houses and wait for the friend-of-a-friend realtor to get back from vacation. The house ended up being a huge disappointment--cramped, outdated, and dangerously steep winding stairs--but that hardly mattered because we knew we had found our realtor. Melanie is easy-going, low-pressure, and willing to look at more houses than is probably healthy. I can't recall the exact number but it was certainly no less than 30 houses. As we saw more and more, Melanie picked up on our body language and facial expressions and knew right away whether we truly liked the house or not. During our search, we bid on six houses. Each experience was unique and showed just how much Melanie and Prudential Fox and Roach care for their clients. Melanie always supported our decisions and when other agents were being unreasonable, let’s just say; Melanie puts on the gloves when she has to! Melanie worked her magic again to get us into our first home. The sellers were being unrealistic with their asking price in the current market. Negotiations dragged on and we were hardly finding middle ground. Melanie knew we wanted this place badly so she did everything in her power to make it happen. She negotiated them down to a more reasonable number and the rest is history. It was certainly serendipity that brought Melanie to us but it was Melanie's passion, personality, and unwavering loyalty that made us choose her to fulfill our dream of moving out of our parent's house into our very own home. We can't thank her enough! ” 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 ▾
