Helped me buy and sell homes
Melody has helped me through the sale and purchase of four homes over the past 25 years. Her knowledge, resourceful nature and diligence has seen me through a few unusual situations and I am so appreciative to have had Melody on my side. I couldn't imagine conducting a sale or purchase without her professional guidance and expertise.

Helped me buy home
I can't say enough great things about Melody and her team. I am thankful that I bought my house through her team. Melody's team responded to every question that I asked in a timely manner. They did everything they could to make the process of buying a home an experience I will always appreciate.

Helped me buy home
I have worked with Melody on several homes both buying and selling over a 20 year time period. I have also used her as a referral source for properties I am selling in other regions. In every case I have found her to be responsive, knowledgeable, informative and a pleasure to work with. When buying she does many subtle things that help get the deal thru and in selling, she does honest evaluations and gets feedback quickly. One of the best testimonials I've heard about her was from another realtor whose quote was "that lady can sure sell houses!" Less ... More

Listed and sold a home
After many years of buying and selling homes we were ready to move again and we went with a friends reccommendation to contact Melody Stirk. Suffice it to say, we were impressed. At first we struggled with the price recommendation Melody suggested we list our home at. Were were a little shell shocked that it was about $25K less then what we thought. I mean after all, this was our home! Melody came to the presentation with statistics to back up her recommendation but reminded us it was ultimately our decision. We compromised and decided to list somewhere in between. While our home didn't sell as quickly as we would have liked, we were impressed by Melody and her staff and their efforts to market our home in many different ways. When our offer did come in, Melody was out of town and so her buyer's specialist, Tyson Emery, negotiated on our behalf. We couldn't believe that even without Melody, Tyson and team got us the offer we had been waiting for. Some may have been upset that Melody was not there 'when we needed her', but she left us in VERY capable hands and we all celebrated upon her return. While she was gone, her team kept her in the loop and we received several encouraging emails and phone calls from her personally. Thank you guys for helping us! We look forward to working with you again! Less ... More

Listed and sold a home
Melody Stirk and her team are the best to work with in Kalamazoo. We had another agent list our home for 6 months and we had no activity. We decided to give Melody a chance because we heard such great things about her and her experience. Our home sold in 6 days!!! Thanks to her suggestions about improvements and pricing, and her personally marketing our home, we were SHOCKED when it sold so quickly. We were told by the other agent she was doing all she could. Obviously not. We are close to closing on our home and couldn't be happier with Melody and her team of professionals. They have taken the time to educate us along every step of the way. I would highly recommend working with Melody. Less ... More

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
This was my personal experience with this woman, however, she seems to be highly discriminate in her sales. After telling me that I had excellent credit and suggesting I buy the house she initially intended to rent to me, this woman takes back her promise and completely refuses to rent to me. Her reasoning: While I am fully capable of paying full rent, I would also have the aid of my cousin who has really poor credit (reasons for which I am fully aware of as I was around at the time of the occurrence). She did not approve of my life decision and refused to rent to me. I could see if I was trying to move a drug addict into the house with me. But it was two full grown adults, desperately needing a place to stay as we were expecting the passing of our grandmother and the loss of her home as a central meeting place for family. Both of us are educated and employed. Because of this woman, when I purchase my home in the next year, I will be avoiding all Keller Williams properties. Less ... More

Her strengths are tenacity and dedication, in addition to being very responsive. She dealt with a very challenging and difficult sale with absolute aplomb and humor when appropriate, and I greatly appreciated her help throughout the entire process.

Worked with this agent for over 25 years and she is always honest, professional,and well informed.Her knowledge of real estate is amazing and she is always willing to take the time to share that wisdom and educate her buyers and sellers. I plan on doing business with her for another 25 years.
