Melissa Roberts

Melissa Roberts

REALTOR®

Melissa Roberts is a native Texan with a heart as big as the state she is from. This characteristic has enhanced the quality of service she gives her clients. Not only will you feel like your home buying or selling experience, with Melissa was smooth, you will know you made the right decision because of the time and education she gives you along the way. She has many areas of expertise that she gained during her 12+ year career. She knows her re-model market, new construction, far north as Georgetown, far south as Buda, the rejuvenating East Austin, West in Dripping Springs, Spicewood, Lakeway area and everything in-between.

Melissa was fortunate enough to have been a Realtor in California during the Real Estate bubble. She closed 324 homes within a two year period and was able to skillfully guide each client from beginning to a successful close. She starts each home buying experience by listening to her clients goals and lifestyle, and then helps them decide on a purchase price that won't put their dreams on hold. Each step of the way, her clients feel confident, and informed. Stories from her experiences and her psychology background make her a great communicator.

After her short stint in California, Melissa moved to Austin and received her Texas Real Estate license. Although the timing of the move 'back home' coincided with the real estate market down turn, Melissa was still able to be successful. She worked purely from referrals and repeat clients. Even when the market was slow, Melissa was able to set a personal best with an average "days on market" for her listings of only 9 days! She has a skillful eye for staging and marketing to the target market. Competitiveness is also in her mind set. She is beyond determined in all areas of her life, and this is an advantage to her clients. She is a tough negotiator!

Although it is clear that Real Estate is her passion, she also loves being involved in her community. She supports Dripping Springs ISD, Relay for Life (American Cancer Society) with her time and fund raiser ideas, and she is the Vice President for her neighborhood's HOA. She is also on the HOA committee for 'Responsible Growth Nearby'. Melissa is grateful to be a mother of three amazing kids. She loves watching her son play soccer with passion and her younger daughters use their imaginations and enjoys creating art with them. When she can squeeze it in, she enjoys the solitude of a long run.

I would certainly recommend Melissa as a premier agent in the Austin area. She was nothing short of exceptional from start to finish throughout the entire process and worked with my wife and I to truly understand what is important to us both. Both Melissa and her assistant Bailey responded to our needs in a timely manner, provided us with the options necessary to make informed decisions, placed the needs of our family first when coordinating meetings and showings, and were both always a joy to be around making the entire buying process an easy and memorable experience. Melissa is clearly a true "go getter" and just the kind of agent that I want representing me in the buying process because of her diligence, experience and authentic approach to getting my family the home we were hoping to have. Melissa and Bailey both are tireless professionals and always on the same page which made communications easy and efficient. I would recommend both Melissa and Bailey again for future potential home buyers second to none.

My husband and I just closed on our new home in Dale, TX with the help of Melissa Roberts and Bailey Perkins. We were relocating from California (with our cat, 4 dogs, and 4 horses) so this was a very tough process and they stuck by our sides the whole time. We couldn't have asked for a better team to work with! I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking to buy (or sell) in the Austin area. If we can convince the rest of the family to move here, you bet they will be using them too! :) Thanks ladies!!!!

Regarding my experience working with Melissa Roberts, it was an absolute pleasure working with her. The circumstances that she had to deal with were very difficult. At all times, Melissa was very professional and very compassionate and caring when working between my wife and I to help get the home successfully sold.

Melissa proved to be very knowledgeable of the market to help get us top dollar for the home which included multiple negotiation discussions between myself and the buyers. Melissa did an excellent job keeping communication lines open during all phases of the transaction. I was particularly impressed with the efforts she took to help ensure the house was staged and marketed to provide maximum exposure for finding a buyer.

Any successful business in a services-related industry is only as good as it's people. The Realty Austin team has a true leader in Melissa that embodies the heart of what every successful organization should have to successfully excel in its business and community.

Melissa is fabulous to work with. She somehow miraculously was able to get us into a home that wasn't even on the market, which was amazing. So she is dedicated to her clients and went above and beyond.

She was very honest with us when one house fell through and I respect her for that. Melissa even brought her daughter and a friend so my daughter would feel comfortable on her first day of school. Very kind, generous, positive, and thoughtful.

Thank you for everything.

I wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed working with Melissa! From the moment I met her at an open house I knew that we wanted to work with her. Her upbeat personality and positive attitude was really refreshing. I am grateful for her staging suggestions and attention to detail. I believe it really helped our house sell quickly. We look forward to working with both Melissa and Michelle as we search for a new house! I know that they are going to aggressively hunt for our perfect house.

Melissa and Michelle were fantastic to work with. They had amazingly quick response time to my questions, gave me plenty of information and were just a pleasure to work with. On a scale of 1-10, they go to 11.

Melissa has been an amazing blessing to our family. She is much more that our realtor, she is our trusted friend and advocate.

We have been on a long journey with this wonderful lady. She has been with us through huge changes in our life and she always gives us confidence and reassurance. This means everything to me as an only child with a traveling husband. Melissa came into the picture when David and I made the decision to move my mom into our home because she could no longer handle her affairs. We found Melissa and we put mom's home on the market. Well she sold my mother's home for top dollar and made sure that everything went smoothly. Mom's home sold right after the open house for the asking price. She is sharp to say the least!

Melissa also has the skill and maturity to keep her eye on everything while staying calm and reassuring when things get crazy. Melissa has been a steadying force for our family through some very sad times as my Husband lost his Dad and my mom broke her hip right after we sold her home. Melissa fought for extra time for us to get moved out and just made sure we knew we were her top priority.

I have had a vision for my family for a while now and Melissa understands what we are doing even when we (David and I) lost sight of the big picture. She stayed on track and didn't let us blow it. To the contrary, she found us the home of our dreams for an unbelievable price. We could not be happier with this diamond she found for us!I We would have never looked at this listing but Mel knows her stuff and knew this might be perfect and it is!! Beautiful community, neighbors and prime location. The property was hot and Melissa knew we wanted it and she made sure our bid was selected. She wrote a cover letter with the offer that brought tears to my eyes and spelled out our plans for the home. There were multiple offers and our offer was accepted that night! The price was so awesome that we are loving the ability to afford some very nice upgrades, extremely fun, and Melissa is still helping us find good deals and sharing brilliant ideas as we dress up our home before we move in!

Phase three of our journey together will be selling our current home and the three of us (me, David and my Mom) starting our new life in Dripping!!! We know Melissa will do another amazing job selling our current home.

We could not have come through this process without Melissa. We cannot say enough about her and I could go on! Just know that from the beginning she saw my vision and here we are! Her only goal was to make sure we found the home of our dreams and to fulfill our goals financially at the same time! Everything has been met far above expectation and it is all because she truly cares about her people and she works hard for their dreams!

She is a blessing and will always be a part of our life!

I have purchased several homes and Melissa Roberts is the most wonderful real estate agent I have ever worked with. She went above and beyond every single step of the way. She answered every question I had, of which there were many, with thoughtful detail. This was a MAJOR purchase for me and Melissa simply went so far above the call of duty to be sure we were taking the right steps for my commercial property purchase, even though residential is her area of expertise. She attended zoning meetings with me, went to the city offices to make sure we had everything in order time and again, and was prompt and efficient in her business dealings. I am very discerning when choosing my business associates and if I ever purchase a property again, Melissa will be my only choice to work with. Melissa is a true professional and lovely soul.

Melissa Roberts was our Agent- she was top-notch and went way beyond what we ever expected. Upon initial communication, i was confident Melissa "got me" and was impressed with her fast and excellent communication (i'm not a patient one and often texted her well after 10pm!!). I first spoke with her on a Monday and told her we were flying out from Ohio to Texas on Thursday and "was she free to show us homes?" She complied an impressive list of the very best homes in our price range and in the very best areas for us. Not being familiar with the area, her guidance was invaluable. In a period of 3 consecutive days, Melissa showed us 33 homes. She worked endlessly to make sure we found the "perfect" home that weekend. THEN she negotiated us an unbelievable deal - we literally had zero stress getting a great price. This is where you expect most agents to disappear and eventually send you a thank you card. Not Melissa, while back in Ohio packing for the move, Melissa was sending us photo updates of the final stages of construction (it was a new home). She was at our side at the inspection, the walk-through, the final walk-through, the closing and has connected us to resources in the community for utilities and additional custom work. We feel completely blesses to have found Melissa and believe she is a total 'gem' of an agent. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone buying or selling. She is professional, personable, and never skips a beat.

Melissa should be considered a valuable asset to Realty Austin. I both bought and sold my house with her assistance. She was friendly, calm, and professional throughout both processes. There is a reason I asked her to assist me with selling my house.

In addition, I think that Melissa is simply just a great person. She really cares about her clients and went out of her way to make me feel comfortable. Given the opportunity, I will always recommend Melissa as the model for a consummate real estate professional. I couldn't be happier.

It was truly a pleasure working with Melissa, and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who is either buying or selling a home. She has a deep knowledge of the market and her experience is evident throughout the process. I believe that she went above and beyond our expectations as a Real Estate Agent and helped us along a challenging process moving here from out of state. I've worked with a number of agents in the past, and Melissa is the best and most professional agent I've worked with. Realty Austin is fortunate to have her on their team.

There is a reason our first call was to Melissa when we decided we wanted to buy our next home. Her efforts, planning, and strategy were key to selling our last one. Melissa continues to go above and beyond for us and her genuine and caring nature means so much to us. We would not hesitate to recommend Melissa to any of our friends and colleagues.

Melissa Roberts and Michelle Batte are absolutely amazing! They hit the ground running at our first meeting. We received multiple offers within the first few days. I felt like our interests and needs were their top priority! They were straight-forward and realistic about the process. We are thrilled with our experience!

I have now used Melissa Roberts of Realty Austin to purchase one home and to sell two. I have never worked with someone more professional, knowledgable, intelligent, hard working, caring and helpful as Melissa. I truly can not say enough about what a wonderful job she did from the beginning to end on everything she did for us. I highly recommend both Realty Austin and Melissa Roberts for buying or selling a home.

Melissa has been amazing throughout this entire process. I rarely provide any online reviews, but I felt having such wonderful service that I want to let everyone know just how satisfied me and my wife have been with Melissa as ore realtor. We will be looking for a home in march and will be using Realty Austin because of the great service we have received from Melissa Roberts! Thanks for everything Melissa!

Melissa Roberts made the experience of buying our home much more pleasant than I expected it to be. She was there from the first house we looked at until closing, and made every step of the way a joy. She listened to our comments, and found us the perfect home based on what we wanted and needed. I can't recommend her highly enough. Thanks, Melissa!

I recently bought a home using Melissa Roberts with Realty Austin. Melissa was wonderful to work with. From the moment I contacted her until the day we closed escrow Melissa was helpful, informative, knowledgable and hard working. I would highly recommend Melissa and Realty Austin to anyone considering buying or selling a home.

She was utterly amazing. I interviewed 4 agents before Melissa Roberts was recommended by my friend and loan officer Tommy O'Donnell with Barton Creek Lending. I honestly don't know what we would've done without her. She's walked us through everything and really went above and beyond in both scheduling and meeting contractors at the house since we aren't in Austin yet. I laugh to myself what we would've done without her help...we probably would've bought in Nashville. I'm already looking for another place and Melissa knows we're gonna use her again.

Melissa was AWESOME! She is extremely professional, patient, and knowledgeable. We had a few last minute issues which could had delayed or prevented the closing, but Melissa worked tirelessly to find solutions to everyone's satisfaction and get the sale closed. She was fantastic, and we look forward to working with her again.

My wife and I are second generation, native Californians, and never thought we would move out of state, but Melissa’s hospitality changed our mind! We began exploring Austin, Texas nearly a year ago as a potential place to retire. Fortunately, we connected with Melissa and she poured her heart and soul into welcoming us and into convincing us that Austin is the best place to live in the United States.

She gave us orientation materials and helped us tour the city. She set aside entire days, on multiple occasions, to drive us around the city and show us countless listings. She found out what we were interested in as a home and scoured the listings for months, until she found the perfect home for us.

Purchasing a home when you are out of state can be a nightmare, but Melissa was there for us and made it seem easy, with docu-sign and her constant availability to our needs. She put in so much time with us when we were in town, that we became concerned about her family. So, what did she do….She literally made us part of her family, by having us come to her house and meet them all! She even allowed us to park an RV in her front yard and stay a couple nights when we were passing through Austin on our way to Alabama. Our purchase was not without some hiccups that were brought on by the sellers and their agent, but Melissa navigated the troubled waters and helped us smoothly to the end. Now we own a beautiful home in Belvedere and we cannot say enough about how tremendous Melissa was helping us accomplish the purchase.

To say the least, we highly recommend Melissa and Realty Austin and have been very impressed with her professionalism, compassion, and perseverance. We appreciate all you have done to help us start 2014 with a dream come true!

Melissa Roberts was wonderful. We have worked with her for years since we sold our other house in Pflugerville. She worked with us & explained everything along the way. Yes, we would recommend her to friends or family who are looking to buy or sell a house. We are very happy with the outcome of the sale.

When we determined how successful Melissa Roberts was in handling a deal that we were previously interested in, we contacted her immediately, without hesitation, without an introduction. Her great reputation preceded her. She has been extraordinarily helpful on the financial end as well on the personal side of our transaction. Although not our first home purchase, this was the first time we were dealing with a national builder and had no idea how to protect ourselves neither in the negotiations nor in the financing. Through her guidance we were able to use our own lender and Melissa was able to convince the VP of Sales to honor their “1% plus Owners Title Policy” which kept money in our pockets. In every instance, she provided us with a level of service above and beyond what any of our former realtors had done for us. She has provided us with names of vendors to assist in the after move details. She has arranged for them to be on site to complete some of the services the builders did not provide. Without her working on our behalf, we would not have been able to make the deal work. Melissa is very professional and extremely competent. Her background and experience make her a highly skilled representative for any homebuyer. We feel so fortunate to have found her. She saved us a considerable sum of money and many headaches. She assisted us at the design studio and was most helpful in keeping us within a set budget. We have recommended her to all our friends. Our banker said she is awesome. We agree.

Terry & Mary Frazee

Melissa is great to work with. Sold my house in 5 days when the market was bad!!! Knew exactly how to stage my home which makes all of the difference. Hard worker and works late nights to get things done if needed. Very personable and easy to work with.

Jennifer

I wish Melissa worked in CA! We just purchased a house in the LA area and Melissa was able to help us with questions (even thought she's not our agent being we are in CA) we didn't know the answers to, being a 1st time home buyer. She is amazing at what she does, and even saved us $5,000 just from suggestions about how we could approach the builder/seller on upgrades, etc.

Steve & Betsy

Melissa is passionate and professional. She's a terrific advocate for all of her clients!

Michelle

Melissa sold my house in 3 days!!!! She is the BEST!!!

Melissa, you are awesome! What an amazing Real Estate Agent you are! You are so professional, passionate and knowledgeable about the real estate market. I will definitely be referring you to anyone I know that needs an exceptional Realtor!!
