Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
We have bought and sold property multiple times in several areas of Boston - Back Bay, Beacon Hill, as well as the South End. We have painfully learned there are many steps to the buying / selling process and regardless how well each step is followed it is the energy, knowledge and individual attention that makes the difference. So that is why we have worked with Melinda. She will partner with you and you can feel confident she will have your back every step of the way and that she will put her experience to work for you 100% of the time. Melinda, along with her assistant/partner Mary were just a treat to work with and they worked very hard to make sure our needs were met at every turn.

When we decided to sell our unit on St. Botolph Street early in 2012, we engaged Melinda Sarkis on the recommendation of a colleague in the business, and were so glad that we were led to make that choice. From the very beginning, Melinda was proactive in offering a well-documented and clear-sighted evaluation of our property's potential. She shared her deep knowledge of key market factors that were important to position the property correctly and to best advantage.
Melinda built on the respect that the real estate community has for her and used her contacts and experience to move quickly to an acceptable offer. She and her team then helped us through the maze of negotiation and requirements that brought us safely to closure. Always courteous, always professional, always mindful of our needs, and with a keen eye on the prize: these were factors that led to her success and our satisfaction with a job so deftly well done.
Since then, we've sung her praises to others in the market and would recommend her heartily to sellers who are looking for a consummate professional who will take their needs to heart and help achieve their goal. Thanks Melinda, for creating and managing an altogether satisfying and successful experience.

Melinda was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was professional, efficient and accommodating. Melinda has a quality that many other Realtors do not have -- she listened to our needs and requests and responded accordingly. In addition, she has a complete and current knowledge of the Boston real estate market that gave us an edge during our search. She worked tirelessly on our behalf before, during and after negotiations and was a true advocate. I would not hesitate to recommend Melinda to any friend, family member or co-worker since she provides outstanding service.

In the purchase of our property, Melinda's knowledge of the market, negotiating skills and enthusiasm were more than we ever could have expected. She will never give you an answer that is not fully researched and will guide you to make the best possible decision. Melinda makes you feel that she is in this for your benefit and not just to buy or sell a property. Working with Melinda will allow you to make the best possible decision possible and you will walk away knowing you did just that!

Thanks again, you made the impossible NOT only possible BUT easy!
David and Roberta
We recently moved from the West Coast to Boston. Melinda was extremely helpful in making our relocation process a smooth one. She found us an excellent home in a competitive market with limited inventory. Her sharp negotiating skills helped us purchase a home that fits our living needs, as well as our investment goals. We couldn’t be happier with our experience. If we need an agent in the future, we would not work with anyone else.

We recently purchased our first home with the help of Melinda Sarkis of Hammond Residential and were incredibly pleased with the entire process. Melinda took the time to understand what we were looking for in a condo and offered great advice and tips along the way. You can tell right away that Melinda loves what she does and is very knowledgeable of the Boston real estate market. Her attention to detail was impressive and we found her to be extremely responsive on all of our requests and emails.
“Melinda also offered helpful insight when we submitted our initial offer and negotiated a fair price in the end that we were very happy with. During the process there were a few times that the seller was not responsive so Melinda took initiative to track them down in order to get us answers. We really enjoyed working with her and would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase real estate in Boston.

Melinda, I would like to thank you for your professional handling of my condo listing, marketing, negotiation and sale. You helped get through a few tricky situations. I was very pleased with your price point and quick sale. You were always available to answer my questions, which was very appreciated, since I live in Connecticut. Thanks again for all you did.
Melinda, thank you for your efforts in selling our condo. We appreciated that you stayed focused on its many positive attributes, with buyers as well as with us. Your diligent marketing efforts put us in a good position. We were especially impressed that you held an open house at an unconventional time – a weekday evening rather than the usual weekend time slots. In fact, that creative idea – and your success in negotiating an initially lower-than-acceptable offer into an acceptable one - led to the sale of our unit. It’s cleat that you love what you do and are willing to work hard and enthusiastically on behalf of your clients. After nearly 30 years in our condo on Beacon Hill, we were ready to move on. Thanks to you efforts, we have been able to do so happily.
Linda and Michael S.
We can’t say enough about Melinda and her diligence. The moment we first met, she laid her cards on the table and explained exactly what she would do to sell our house. She not only kept her word – she did what she promised with excitement, professionalism and determination. Melinda works hard for her clients, and it was a pleasure to have had an agent as tenacious as her. Melinda has a gift when it comes to real estate, and thankfully we will always have her as our agent.
