TestimonialsThere are many things I can say about the high quality of service I provide to my home seller and home buyer clients, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from some of my recent clients themselves.
So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. I hope they indicate my experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much I enjoy helping people with their real estate needs.
I would be happy to email you additional testimonials if you are interested.
If you are searching for a realtor that you can trust, have 100% confidence in, someone that makes you feel like you’re her one and only client, who will call day or night, is willing to work like crazy to make things just right...Melanie is amazing. She went above and beyond what we had ever expected for our family. Tough negotiations in real estate come along, issues come up. Not once did we question who was on our side. We cannot express how much we appreciated each and every phone call, email and even in tough times a wine recommendation! Melanie is a gem and we admire not only her real estate knowledge, but the effort and commitment she puts into so many other adventures in her community. There are people that glow, and people that shine... this is one lady that SHINES big time.
Melanie is motivated and full of energy. She is committed to her clients and goes above & beyond to ensure her clients know that she is working for them. We enjoyed every moment with her.
Melanie and her team were exceptional. They were always available and provided very detailed updates of everything that was happening. We used Melanie on multiple deals and will continue to recommend her.
Melanie and her amazing team made selling and buying so much easier. This is not an easy process at times, especially when it’s your first time. Melanie was so patient with us and didn’t pressure or rush us into buying something until we knew we had found the right home! She gave us her honest opinion, which we really appreciated. Melanie also went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and walked us thru every step (all the ups and downs). Melanie also made sure to have outstanding pictures, videos and posts of our home to sell. If you want a realtor who will do everything she can to help you sell and/or buy your dream home, Melanie Galea is the one to pick!! Thank you Melanie and your amazing team for all your hard work!
We bought a house with Melanie and will never use another realtor again. From the start of the process to possession day, Melanie was there always ready to answer our questions. She patiently showed us so many houses until we found the right one and won out in multiple offers! Melanie is very knowledgeable and has a ton of insight on the community of Fort McMurray. She is extremely honest and works so hard to help you find what you're looking for. Thanks Melanie!
We purchased a home with Melanie and it was a fantastic experience. Melanie is very knowledgeable and professional and was always quick to respond to our inquiries. She was patient in showing us several homes until we found "the one". Melanie made the entire process simple and enjoyable for us with her expertise and sense of humour. Thank you Melanie!
Melanie and her team provided me with excellent service in selling my home. It was my first time selling a property and she guided me through every step of the way and her communication with me was excellent. The professionalism she and her team showed me had my place sold in 4 days after listing thanks to all of their hard work. I couldn't be more pleased and would highly recommend Melanie and her team for any of your real estate needs. Thanks again for such an excellent outcome.
When we moved here 3 years ago I was looking for a trusting and knowledgeable person. Melanie’s videos are what helped me make my decision to choose her. She knows her business very well and listens to all concerns needs and wants She made the process seamless as we had to make a trip out here which could have been consuming but because of her we had a home picked right away! Hands down she is the best! I recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell She definitely “goes beyond the lawn sign”

By: Name Withheld
In summary, she listened, she communicated, and she was fast (but not pushy). In more detail, as a first-time buyer (and one who likes to know everything), I had many concerns entering the real estate market. Melanie put me in touch with all the right people to get all the information I wanted/needed to get peace of mind. She advocated for me when I needed her to and she spent time going over everything with me in detail. My experience with Melanie was smooth sailing.
