Being a Realtor is not just a job for me, it is something I thoroughly love to do. No matter if I’m helping a new family find their first home together or helping someone sell their current home to move to another area to begin a new chapter in their lives, there’s simply nothing that I would rather do.

I hope that you will take a few minutes to see the testimonials below.
We have bought and sold 19 homes in our history. Melanie is the best communicator, best researcher, and most professional agent we’ve worked with. In this crazy market she went above and beyond to ensure we had a complete picture before even stepping foot in a home. We highly recommend Melanie if you’re looking for a knowledgeable hard-working partner in a transaction. And, we love our new home!

Daryl and I want to take this time to thank you for the great experience of working with you on purchasing our Douglas Lake cabin.  From the moment we spoke, you became an advocate for us.  At no time did we feel pressured to purchase.  You showed us many properties, each similar, yet unique.  You spent lots of time answering questions and listening to our concerns.  At all times, you were professional, helpful and cheerful.  You became our friend.

Thank you so much for representing Tennessee in such a positive light!  We love the cabin and hope to spend more time there in the near future.  

You are welcome to stop for a visit anytime! Thanks, Melanie!"

I’m from WV and was looking to buy a house in TN; I went to several realtors there. With no help from them, I then met this great lady. She went out of her way to help me find & purchase the perfect house.

Thank you so much Melanie!"

Melanie is the best. Very pleasant and professional. Because of my job I had to transfer from NY to TN. I looked at a lot of houses on the internet and picked out six to look at..So a month before I started work in TN I flew down to Knoxville for one day. Melanie and her husband Tye picked me up at the airport and drove me around showing me the houses I chose. The one I had a really good feeling about was just as nice in person. It was actually owned by Melanie and Tye. So as we are driving back to my hotel I’m discussing the house and working out a deal. She gave me a very fair deal and I couldn’t be happier. I was excited but in shock. Who flies out of state for one day, looks at a house one time, then puts down a deposit and flies home? The planets must have been lined up or something. It was such a pleasure doing business with Melanie. I’ve been in the house almost two years now and it’s great. It’s in the hills south of Seymour and I love it here."

Dear Melanie,

We wanted to say what a pleasure it was to work with you! You helped us in so many ways. We were in the dark about the whole process. We felt like a friend was helping us. We could never say THANK YOU enough!!! We feel like we have a friend for life. If we or anyone we know ever need a realtor, without a doubt it will be you..."

Melanie was very professional, while making the tedious process as fun as possible.  She was very helpful and knowledgeable, but most importantly she did what it took to sell our home.  Of all the wonderful characteristics of Melanie, my favorite was her integrity. She told us the truth even when we didn’t want to hear it.  I recommend her services highly."

Having never gone through the process of purchasing a home, Jonathan and I were extremely nervous. Once we met Melanie, we were completely relieved. She soared above and beyond our expectations – guiding us through the process, keeping us informed and explaining every step of the way.  Melanie Sims is the only agent we would recommend to anyone planning to purchase real estate!"

Hi Mel,

I just want to thank you for all your help while purchasing the cabin.I have never been so impressed with a Realtor before. You were concerned with my feeling and making sure I was satisfied in every aspect and I WAS… You followed thru with what you said you would do and you always addressed any concern I had during the entire process and you actually made the 3 month process enjoyable..I feel like I not only gained a reliable Realtor but a friend…WOW was I surprised with the entire process...You are the bomb. And I will recommend you to anyone looking to purchase property in Tennessee.

Thanks again and I will keep in touch."

Working with Melanie was a blessing. She made such a stressful process run so smooth. My husband and I are very picky people and wanted to get our money’s worth when purchasing a new home. She showed us house after house and never lost patience with us, if I didn’t like the house she would just say “you’ll know if it’s meant for you.” she never pressured us, or tried to “sell” us. When we finally found the house we loved she worked her magic on negotiating and got us the price we wanted to pay. Now 7 months later my husband, our daughter and I live in our dream house and loving every minute of it. Melanie never treated us like one of her customers, she made us feel like family.

Thank-you Melanie!!!"

As first time home buyers we were overwhelmed with everything that we were required to do.  We had contacted a few other agents before we found Melanie, but they had all seemed like they didn’t want to bother with us, maybe because of our budget.

After meeting Melanie, she immediately began searching and sending us available homes in our price range.  I think we found our perfect home within the first week.  From this point we were completely lost, but Melanie was great, taking the time to explain everything to us in terms we could understand.  She helped us to know when to schedule inspections and get all the paperwork squared away.  We felt like Melanie was part of our family after we finally got to closing.  She wanted us to get the home, and for the right price, as much as we did.  I know if I ever want to buy or sell another home I will definitely call Melanie again."

I wanted to thank you so much for helping my wife and I finally get the cabin we had been dreaming of getting. I’m sorry it took us about a year to find it but have been amazed at your patience and diligence in working with us. I am sure most Realtors would have given up on us a long time ago. The fact that you went and looked at several houses for us while I was still in Afghanistan and my wife back in FL meant so much to us. You truly have gone more than the extra mile to help us secure our dream home. I wish everyone could know how amazing you are. We always felt comfortable with you which was the number one thing my wife looked for back when we were interviewing for a Realtor.

Thanks for going so far out there for us and making us feel like we were more like friends than your clients."
