Tacy and I wanted to express our sincere gratitude to you for your outstanding effort
during our Lake Norman house search for the last 4 years with you! Not only were you
Professional and willing to show us over 50 houses all over the lake but you continued to
support us even when it looked like we were not interested and slowed down our search! You
made it easy on us because you were not pushy but always willing to take the time to show us a
house right when we were available! And you asked the right questions so you really knew what
we wanted in our dream home!

Thank you for your superior job in helping us find our dream home! We are so happy now that
we are living and enjoying those fabulous waterfront sunrises.

We can’t thank you enough and would definitely highly recommend you to anyone who wanted

With your help, we had a great experience buying our new house on Lake Norman. What impressed us most was your follow-through. When there were problems, you personally made sure that they were corrected – especially when we needed help from other organizations. When we first met, you took care that we got to see the different communities around the lake – each with their own unique lifestyle, facilities, and amenities. Your judgement was essential in helping us find the right house, community, and area of the lake. When we found our house, we understood that we had to move fast to make the purchase, and you definitely helped us in that area and helped keep all of the other organizations moving forward to that date. There were some unexpected complications and you were always willing to make the calls to fix the issue and to keep everything on track. We’re moved in now and we love our house and love the area. Thanks for all your help.

Jeanna & Doug Snyder – 2016

I would love to share my wonderful real estate experience with Melissa McEachren…and the home we bought at Sutters Mill in Troutman, NC.

Even before I was a client she answered all my questions and even showed me property that we were interested in. She was up front as to what we could afford and truly listened to our wants even if we didn’t know them and they kept changing. She never gave up on us! We knew we wanted something that we could call ours with such specific details so Melissa suggested that we look into building a New Construction Home in Troutman, NC because she knew a wonderful Builder that offered everything we wanted since both of us are so very picky.

We are so happy with our new home and more than happy with Melissa. She came with us to our Builder meetings and made sure that our final inspection was perfect and up to mine and my spouse’s picky high standards. If there was a question or a problem during the building process, she was right on top of it and the problem solved within that day! She found us a great lender and helped us through that process as well and was always a phone call away!

I can’t thank Melissa enough for finding us the house of our dreams and making the experience so wonderful and stress free! Thank you Melissa!!!

Dr. Dave and Becky Swartz – Summer 2013


We just wanted to thank you for your excellent service and all your help relocating us to Lake Norman.

Our initial contact with you was after we performed a web search on your excellent website which we had been using exclusively to research the Lake Norman real estate market. You graciously agreed to help us even before we were sure we were ready to buy as we had not even listed our home in Powell, Ohio for sale. Our needs were quite complicated as we were bringing my 91 year old Mom to live with us and needed a fabulous in-law suite. In addition, we wanted a pool and a resort-like setting where every day would be a vacation. You allocated 3 days of your time and we used all 3 days to the maximum. You educated us on neighborhoods, pros and cons of living on the water, and listened carefully to our needs and desires. Concluding day 1, you took us back to your office and spent more time listening and planning strategy for day 2. Day 2 was great as all the homes you showed us were in the running since you listened to our desires and worked hard to meet them. We again concluded day 2 with a strategy meeting and planned what homes we wanted to go back for a more thorough review. Day 3 we surprised you by adding another home to revisit after sleeping on our possible choices. You immediately made arrangements for the extra viewing and we enjoyed listening to your advice as we went back for a second time. Much to our delight, you found us the perfect home and we wrote an offer and started negotiations. Happily, you were able finalize the contract while we were driving back to Ohio to start the sale of our home there.

You worked countless hours helping us with zero pressure and no real thoughts that we would buy on our first outing. You educated and supported us in every step of the transaction, and then followed up on every detail during the sales to closing process since we had returned to Ohio.

We will certainly contact you for help in our next real estate venture at Lake Norman. You really know the area and are a true professional!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Cornelius, NC.
Mel was of great help in my search for a home! From the starting process of learning neighborhoods to visiting homes to advising me on loan/inspection/attorneys to work with who proved to be top notch like herself. She was always available at all hours and was patient with me throughout the process. Quick and clean closing process. Mel made my home buying experience a very positive and enjoyable one!

Bought a home in 2012.
Melissa is an amazing Realtor, whether you’re buying or selling. She worked with me for over a year to get me ready to purchase, and into the right home! She answered all my questions and made the process as smooth as she possibly could; I highly recommend her!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Huntersville, NC.
Melissa was great. We had just moved from California and had just started the house hunting process . I came across Melissa’s website and from our first correspondence she was on top of it. She had taken us to several different houses and showed us everything we asked for. We purchased a home that we are very happy with. Her professionalism and persistence was outstanding!

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Mooresville, NC.
Melissa was my realtor for two houses my daughters house & my house. In both cases she took care of details that made the closings go smoothly. She was available when needed. I was very pleased with her service.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 in Cornelius, NC.I first met with Melissa last April, knowing only that I wanted to relocate to the Lake Norman area. As a lifetime midwesterner from Chicago, I was clueless about the various complexes around the lake, and found Melissa to be most knowledgeable about the market. And, she was quick to determine just exactly what I was looking for (perhaps even before I realized what it was I really wanted) with several showings over a couple of afternoons. It was 5 months before I sold my condo in IL and was ready to move to NC, but throughout that period Melissa kept in touch. By the next visit to LKN in late September, we found the perfect condo on the first day and made an offer that afternoon! Throughout the buying process, Melissa was always accommodating and responsive to my questions and requests.

Melissa’s professionalism, knowledge and fun personality made my long distance transition to Cornelius so much easier. I would recommend her to anyone looking for that perfect Lake Norman property to call home.

Bought a Condo home in 2014  in Huntersville, NC.
Melissa helped me find a beautiful home in the Lake Norman area for just the right price! She is very familiar with the Lake Norman area and surrounding which helped me in finding the perfect place! I NEVER had to wait long for her to get back to me and she always seemed to be on top of things! I was a first time home buyer so I was pretty confused about how the process worked. Melissa helped me to understand everything and was always able to answer any questions I had. It was such a quick and easy loan process and she was always getting documents to me that I needed right away. She educated me on everything I would have to do and made me feel so much more comfortable at ease with the process. It can be pretty overwhelming at first but she helped me to get rid of my anxiety! She also set up an online portal for me, which included homes I wanted to look at in specific areas and my price range. It was connected to my e-mail, so anytime a new home came on the market I might of been interested in she made sure I was the first to know! This was such a positive experience and I would definitely recommend Melissa to anyone!

Bought a Vacant Land home in 2014 for approximately in Iron Station, NC.
Melissa found exactly what my husband and I were looking for. Within hours of finding the property Melissa presented a strong offer which was accepted. This property already had an offer and a lot of activity. Because of her knowledge of the area she knew it wouldn’t last. Melissa was hands on through the entie process all the way through closing. Her communication and availability were second to none. She always made us feel that we were top priority. We would definitely use Melissa again.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 in Cornelius, NC.
Melissa helped me find a condo on Lake Norman! Initially, I was just looking for another apartment to rent, but Melissa suggested looking into buying. We discussed the benefits of buying, then she found all the available condo/townhouses around the Lake Norman area. She was so helpful, and we visited a couple different condos. She was always available to meet up and discuss the details of purchasing a new home. When I decided on the condo I wanted, Melissa was so helpful is negotiating and closing the deal. She also had a mortgage company in line to work with, and they have been great as well. I had a great experience with Melissa, and I would definitely suggest her to anyone interested in purchasing a new home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Davidson, NC.
When buying and selling my home, Melissa McEachren was the perfect person to assist me. Melissa is knowledgeable, friendly, and punctual. I knew I could call on her at any time, and she would get right back to me to answer my questions. Melissa listens and works diligently to find you the home that you are looking for. I knew that I could trust her advice, and I felt that she genuinely cared about my happiness in finding the right home. I am grateful for her help and her kindness.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014  in Denver, NC.
Working with Melissa was great! We were new to the area and needed to learn a lot. Melissa was very available and knowledgeable to help us out throughout the entire process from understanding our list of needs/wants in a house to answering our questions and guiding us through the buying process. We highly recommend Melissa.

Ann and Dave Winkle

Dear Melissa,

Thank you so much for finding the perfect home for our family.  Our family of 6 had moved to 6 different states in the last 25 years have used many different realtors.  You were by far the most responsive, efficient, and productive.  You quickly grasped the type of home and life style we were looking for and did not waste our time showing us homes that would not interest us.  When we had just a few days to househunt, the Charlotte area was thriving and homes were selling quicker than we could look at them.  You were able to think “outside the box” and find us a home that most did not even know was going on the market.  A 5 weeks later, we were moving in!

We also appreciate your assistance in recommending excellent painters and handimen to prepare our house for us. What amazed us the most is how accessible you were to us throughout the entire process.  When we called, you either answered immediately or returned our call within 20 minutes.  We were amazed and very appreciative.  You made us feel like we were your only clients, yet we knew you were very busy with others.  Thank you again for finding the perfect home for us and making our dreams come true.  We still feel like we are on vacation everyday.

Doug Wilson

After making the decision to look at Lake Norman for a weekend condo, I spoke with a couple agents to see who had the most knowledge about the area and an aggressive attitude to find what we wanted. From the first conversation with Melissa, I knew she would be the agent that could find the “view” my wife and I wanted and the best opportunity to acquire a condo that fully met our desires. Her knowledge of the area surpassed our expectations, and after one day of viewing units on the lake, we found what we wanted, presented an offer and moved forward with a closing date.

Melissa was a pleasure to work with, she communicated extremely well, and her resources to pull a deal together was very impressive. We definitely recommend Melissa to future buyers.

Stephanie Williams –  4/28/13

“As a first time homebuyer, I had met with a few agents before and was having trouble finding someone that would really listen to me and what my needs were when it came to finding a house to buy. I met Melissa late in 2011 and what a process it has been! With all the changing lending laws and the housing market being a nightmare to navigate, she was absolutely critical in helping me find my home. From the showing, to writing the offer, to the closing table, she was prompt, professional, and most important she listened to me and did her best to make sure I was happy in the decision I made. She tailored a daily listing update to only show me houses she knew I would be interested in; when I say she strives to only give you what you ask for is an understatement!

To give her credit wouldn’t be enough; we put in offers on four different homes and went through failed escrow after failed escrow but every step of the way she was there for me, and a few times even encouraging me not to give up. After a year and a half of showings, escrows, changing lenders, and mountains of paperwork she helped me close on my first home! I never would have been able to do it without her; she truly went above and beyond the call of duty for me. I couldn’t be happier in my new home and I would highly recommend her to everyone I know, especially other first time homebuyers; she really did help make the process as smooth as it possibly could be for me. I know who I will call when I’m ready for my second home!”

 Melissa- THANK YOU! 

Stephanie Williams
Senior Market Administrative Assistant

Meagan Massenburg

“Being that I was a first time homebuyer, I met with several different realtors before meeting Melissa and knowing that she would be the perfect fit for my house search. She helped me through the entire process explaining every little detail and making the whole thing easy and effortless on my end. I definitely don’t think I would have found my house so quickly if it hadn’t been for Melissa’s help. She listened to exactly what I was looking for and worked around my work schedule. I now know that if I ever choose to move then I will call Melissa first! I would recommend Melissa to anyone whether they are buying their tenth home or their first!”

Jennifer Bezek

We were exceptionally pleased with the excellent real estate service that Melissa McEachren provided. She was always very patient while answering all of our questions and eager to go the extra mile to assist us.  She saw every detail through from beginning to end.  Even after the closing, she continued to be there to answer any questions we had. She will continue to be our realtor of choice and I will refer her services at every opportunity.

Brian T. Hayes

“When I began my home search many, many months ago, I contacted Melissa from  to view one of her listings. Despite this listing already being under contract, Melissa wanted to help me in my search. Melissa found time in her schedule to meet with me later that day and took the time to find out what I wanted as I began my quest for my next residence. Melissa not only helped me find the perfect residence ( which took over 20 showings) but she also was my listing agent and had an agreement in my hands about three weeks after listing it. Melissa ALWAYS made time for me on just a few hours notice and would often preview homes for me as my time was always valuable to her. Melissa would make time from me weather it be 8AM or 8PM. Melissa did a wonderful job when listing my home and had all of the brochures and booklets completed beautifully in just hours and my home listed on the web that day. Melissa made me feel comfortable during the selling and buying processes and all of the extras that present themselves through the entirety. She was continually working on insuring that my closings would proceed smoothly and even was able to make those happen within one hour of each. Her continued professionalism made her the perfect agent for me! I would strongly suggest anyone looking at entering the home market, to give Melissa a call!!”

Chris and Irma Ericson

“Melissa McEachren was our buyers agent. We found her to show professionalism as our realtor. She was extremely attentive to our needs. We would highly recommend her. We were highly satisfied with our house purchase. Melissa never pressured us and was very well aware of what we were looking for in a house. We thank her for her assistance and professionalism.”

Michael P. Jimenez

“I live in Northern California . I had sold property in the foothills and had to re-invest the proceeds from that sale. I began looking at homes in Mooresville via the Internet. Someone my girlfriend knew had recommended Melissa. We immediately contacted her and sent her a number of homes and properties. I also informed her that we are working a 1031 exchange and had to close within a given date. Melissa was a Godsend!! She was professional, considerate and sweet. She looked into every one of the properties we sent and would promptly get back to us. We got down to 3 houses and asked Melissa to walk through and tell us which one we should purchase. She told us which one would best suit us and it did!!!

“Now remember we are 1000’s of miles apart and have never met in person, Melissa kept the ball rolling by staying on top of lenders, sellers, inspection issues etc. She meet all of our needs and concerns.

“Melissa in our eyes is not our agent, she is a friend, and now part of our family. We want to take this opportunity to again deeply thank Melissa for who she is, and what she did for us. I want to thank your office for its professionalism as well. Melissa is truly an asset to you and your office.”

Doug and Linda Wyrick

We used Melissa McEachren as our realtor to sell our house in Mooresville and she did everything she said she would do, and more. She was very pleasant to work with and provided very valuable advice to market our home. She always gave immediate feedback when the house was shown. It sold during a time when the market was not so great and we had considerable competition in our area. I would definitely recommend Melissa and would use her again if I was considering buying or selling.”

Josh & Heather Van Epps

“My husband and I had placed our home on the market and had it listed with another agent for six months. We had been disappointed with her services. We were referred to Melissa from a former client that she had worked with. We scheduled a meeting with her and were so impressed by her professionalism, promptness and follow-through. Melissa provided us with a comparative market analysis, full reports on the house competition in the area, an information box at the street, brochures about our home for showings, she sent flyers out to other agents in the area and she advertised our home on real estate websites as well. We saw first hand how the proper exposure sells a nice home. Melissa sold our home in two days! We would recommend her as an agent.”

Dan and Brenda Thompson

“What a pleasure to work with Melissa! We had two houses to sell as we formed our new married life together and began searching for our dream house. After having my house listed for 8 months with another realtor, and only one low offer, she made some suggestions, and sold the house in 2 days. It was amazing! Not only that, but she sold Brenda’s house in less than 2 weeks! And our dream house? Yes, she was very diligent in our quest to find and attain it as well. Thank you Melissa! Great Job!”

Jeff Crotts

“Melissa, I just want to thank you for selling my lake property. I was impressed with the timely manor that the property was sold, your professionalism was greatly appreciated and keeping me informed was very good since I was an out of state seller. If I ever need any real estate needs in the future I would consider your services #1.”

Kathy Wilson

“I cannot say enough about Melissa McEachren as a Buyer Agent. I had been looking for a Condo for my mother and she found the perfect one! Also was a Seller Agent, we put a home on the market and she sold it in ONE WEEK! You cannot beat that performance.”

Paula Cooper

“Melissa was great, we have bought several properties over the years and have never had an agent deal with all the details and handle everything as timely as Melissa. She always returned calls, took care of details. She was great!”

Bill Heard

“In the sale of our home Melissa showed professionalism, diligence and kindness. She was attentive and communicative. She gave good counsel. In the negotiations she demonstrated skill and wisdom. I have since recommended her. I was very pleased with Melissa’s work.”

Nicole Jauregui

“We were interested in moving to North Carolina but did not know much about the state.  A Realtor in Florida put us in touch with Melissa.  She would keep in contact with us by phone and email when she would find a house she thought we would be interested in. Melissa took us to all the houses we had found on line and some of the ones she had found.  We found the perfect house that is our dream house. There was never any pressure and the buying experience was an actual pleasure.  I would highly recommend Melissa.
