Michael helped my wife and I with the purchase of our home in Evansville. He was very patient since we changed our minds countless times on what we wanted, and worked with us for over six months until we found the right property. Michael is very fast to respond to all of your questions and is very flexible in meeting with you when your schedule permits. He is very knowledgeable and honest and always gives you the best advice he can based on his extensive knowledge and experience with the market. I highly recommend you give Michael a call to help you with your real estate needs, I am sure you will get the same professional and friendly service we did. Less ... More

We contacted Michael based on his reviews. Choosing Michael was definitely the right choice. He provided us a link that had houses that met our price range, size, ... which made looking much easier. We ended up changing our desires slightly based on Michael's suggestions since we couldn't find what we wanted. After the changes we found what we were looking for.

I am a first time home buyer and this process could have not been smoother. I was very nervous and wanted to know everything about everything. Michael did a wonderful job of listening to my questions and concerns and then explaining to me in a way I could understand, what I wanted to know. When I listen to my friends and relatives recount their real estate purchase experience I can confidently say I got the Cadillac Treatment. The Big thing is that he listens and responds to your concerns. I will definitely recommend him to others and go back to him when we are in the market again Less ... More

We selected Michael from the hundreds of realtors in Evansville based on his reviews, and it was clear from our initial meeting why he has perfect ratings. He took care of everything from day one, we followed his process and recommendations and he sold our home in 14 days. I would 100% recommend listing with him in any price range.

I met Michael a full year before I sold my home when he sold my neighbor's house. My neighbor highly recommended him but I was renting the house out at the time so I didn't list it with him. Michael made periodic contact throughout the year. He was not buggy or annoying, just always there reminding me he was ready to help sell my house. When I finally took the plunge he told me exactly what needed to be done to the house to make it saleable. He had the name and contact info of the perfect contractor to do repairs (fast, friendly, honest and very fairly priced - Pat Brenner). He was honest with me throughout the process, even when I didn't want to hear some of it. He was attentive and kept in good contact. I lived out of town and he bent over backwards to make the closing process easy on me despite the distance. Less ... More

He even followed up (both buying and after the house was sold) to see how we were doing! Highly highly highly recommend him!!

I would recommend Michael to anyone looking to buy a home. He took the time to ask questions and find out what the qualities you are looking for in a home. It was very easy looking at homes with him. He wold point out key features and help you evaluate homes based on solid facts and sound advice. I could not be happier with the service I received.

Michael is a very assertive and competent real estate professional. We had a house that we had been trying to sell on and off for several years. Michael was very clear about how to make the house salable inside and out. His advise was correct and his work in getting it sold was quick and efficient. The house sale was very satisfactory for us as the sellers.

Found us many excellent homes to show. All questions we asked whether via email or text were answered promptly. Gave us an excellent training session before putting in our first offer to teach us everything we needed to know as first time home buyers. Was always available and made us feel like we were his only clients. Couldn't be any happier with our experience with Michael and will definitely contact him when looking to upgrade in the future.

It can be stressful trying to find a home to buy while still living in another state. We chose Michael to be our real estate agent because he is so highly recommended by others going through the buying or selling process. After going through all the things you have to do to end up with the house you want, we would definitely recommend Michael! Never once did we feel rushed or pressured. He took all the time we needed to see all the homes we wanted to see, he answered all our questions honestly, gave us advice when we needed it, and just really is an example of what a great real estate agent should be. We truly appreciate the fine job he did for us and would highly recommend him to anyone who is buying or selling a house. Less ... More

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
To be honest, Mr. Melton did NOT know what he was doing. 1. He made us paint all rooms, and hallways (2400 sq ft) before he would list our property. But he accepted and listed other folks property and didn't make them paint it. We both our 60 years old. I'm a disable VET and we cold not afford a professional painter to paint. Mr. Melton did not care at all. 2. He listed our property very, very high because he did not do his homework on the property value to compare to other Condo's sold. 3. We list our property with Mr. Melton on April 28th, 2014. Mr. Melton told us he would have our Condo SOLD by July 2014 so we could move to Florida in August 2014. 4. We fired Mr. Melton as our relator in July 2014 because NO ONE called about it or even walked thru it. NO ONE !!! 5. When he conducted a open house, he made no fliers at all. I made the fliers for him. 6. He did not put a information box outside of the Condo. Mr. Melton comes across as "know it all". But that all. Less ... More
Response fromMichael Melton
I'm sorry you were displeased with my services! Yes, you did hire another agent to try and sell your home, but I noticed your home didn't sell with them either. I gave you professional advise and we priced the home the best we could due to your situation and due to the current market value of it. Property values are not what they were when you purchased your home and its a shame you need me to blame for that. My uncle is a disabled VET and I have nothing but the highest level of respect for him and all men and women who have served for our country. I wish you the best and hope the real estate market rebounds enough for you to get what you need. Less ... More

As a first time home buyer I had a lot of insecurities about the whole home buying process but after Michael was referred to me by my brother who also used and trusted Michael I knew I at least had found the right man to help me. Michael was very helpful from the beginning explaining the steps we'd go through. He was very accommodating to my needs as far as scheduling and respectful of my space when it came time to look around houses. During the negotiation process he exceeded my expectations of a realtor in making an offer and offered his help on anything I might need even after the closing. Michael was great to work with and an excellent communicator during every step. He is very active and often responded almost immediately. I will definitely be referring him to anyone I know who is looking for a realtor and intend to use him myself in the future! Less ... More

Michael understands investment real estate very well and took the extra time to explain different options I had during the offer/purchase process.

Michael was a WONDERFUL realtor, and I recommend him HIGHLY. I am an experienced home buyer, but this was the first home I had bought from out of state. Michael made the process extremely easy and worry-free. He made himself available on my random visits and quickly arranged to see quite a few homes in a row in order to make my trips as productive as possible. His knowledge and insight into real estate, construction, home maintenance, AND the area (don?t under-estimate this!) made me very comfortable in making truly informed decisions. Once settling in on my decision to purchase, Michael proved what a full service realtor he truly is. He kept me up to date on each next step, and offered to arrange for and meet various inspectors and surveyors. Knowing I still had to complete responsibilities out of state (even after the sale was complete) Michael offered to continue to help by arranging landscapers or servicemen to help out with preparing and maintaining the home until I could make the move. I have to say, I was astounded by his work ethic and total dedication to the customer. I simply can?t say enough about how wonderful it was to work with Michael. Whether you are making a move from out of state or locally, I HIGHLY recommend going with Michael as your realtor! Less ... More

In looking for our 2nd home my husband and I had a multitude of options that we were considering in this wild market: buy and move in, buy and renovate, build new. Michael showed us a little of everything and was very knowledgeable about all three categories. He has an extensive amount of construction, legal, geographical knowledge while still maintaining a comfortable and friendly relationship with his clients. We cannot say enough nice things about him. He was patient, understanding, easy to get along with, responsive, professional, fun, and most importantly he listens. Both my husband and I had our own first home before meeting and both of us share the sentiment that most realtors do not listen to your needs or wants. They just push what "everyone" wants. Well, we don't need a garden tub, chandeliers, or a terrazzo floors, we want a house that works for us and our routine. Michael truly listened to what we wanted, needed, and despised and always found something to look at that we truly would have considered. He didn't parade us through a list of homes that didn't interest us one bit, as most agents do. Michael is hands down the best agent we have ever worked with. We will continue to use him, recommend him, and stay in touch with him because we made a friend in this process. Less ... More

Michael did an excellent job helping us find the right home. He is very sharp, smart and efficient. He will explain things clearly to you and at the same time not wasting your time. My job is busy so I didn't have a lot of time to spend on house hunting, but Michael did everything for me. Some agents are nice and helpful, but not as sharp and efficient as Michael. I highly recommend Michael if you are looking for a home. I wasn't a seller but I'm sure he will do a good job for you too if you are selling a house, based on the way he works. Less ... More

Michael, was a fantastic realtor to work with making my first time home buying experience simple and less stressful than I thought it would be taking the time to guide me step-by-step through the process. He accommodated every request I had scheduling multiple appointments to view properties as well as inspections when narrowing down the search for me leaving me with not much I needed to do besides tell him what I was looking for in a home. He also did a great job giving advice as to what to look for when inspecting a home which was very helpful and taught me a lot. When it came time to negotiate my offer and request with the seller he did a great job which I know helped me save some money getting a good deal on my home as you could tell he understood my concerns and reasons for the offer I made which in turn voiced them to the seller having them understand as well ultimately accepting my offer. Overall, I would highly recommend him as a realtor to anyone looking for someone that is accommodating, easy to work with, very knowledgeable (If he doesn't know something he will get a prompt answer), welcoming, professional, and has a great personality making for an exceptional home buying experience.

Highly recommended! We were very pleased with Michael as our realtor. He did a great job marketing the home. He was great at communicating with us. Michael gave us positive feedback and assured us it would not take long to sell. Our house was on the market less than three months. We were very happy with the short time it took to sell our house.

Michael Melton is an AWESOME realator. He is very friendly, caring, patient and a very organized person! He will get the job done, period! We put our home on the market and it sold 4 weeks later! Even with the housing market down and a forclosure down the street, we still got out what we needed of it! We also were worried we wouldn't sell quick enough. My husband received a job promotion out of state and had to start right away. We have an 11 month old daughter and didn't want to be apart for very long! Michael worked very hard to move fast! He always got back to us right away. He knows what it takes to get the job done. If your home isn't selling he will find out why and fix the problem. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is buying or selling a home! Less ... More

I needed to sell my home in a very short time period and Michael made it happen. He was very proactive among all the parties involved. I have been involved in a number of real estate transactions and this was by far the smoothest. Michael was diligent in all aspects of selling my home. We even ran into hurdle with out of town lending and he was able to smooth out everything to keep us on track. I will definitely be referring and seeking Michael for all my real estate needs.

We relocated to the Newburgh, Indiana area in 2005 for a multinational Fortune 100 firm. There were housing options galore, and we did not know where we wanted to live, the style or size home. Michael was keen to help us decipher where we would find the most joy and the best cultural expression of ourselves through the agriculturally rich Warrick County area. With Michael?s community connectivity and extensive property network, we found the home of our dreams, full of nature and wildlife, room for gardens, and expansive views. Michael?s negotiation finesse propelled us into a former Parade of Homes property; we have had quite a grand time. Highly recommended, Michael?s executive relocation experience was the perfect fit for us. His integrity and professionalism speaks for itself, with real estate sales that withstand the test of time.

In searching for an agent to buy a home in a completely different state from which we lived, and not knowing anybody, I read several reviews involving different real estate agents on different websites. Once I started reading the reviews I Michael, I knew he was the real estate agent for us! Michael is very personable, professional, and wonderful at keeping you informed on what is going on. Living out of town, we had to look at houses during non-traditional business hours and Michael was super accomodating. Any snag we ran into, Michael was there to help without one second of hesitation. I definately would recommend and/or use him again. My husband and I were made to feel very comfortable in the search and purchase of our new home. Thank you Michael!!! Less ... More

Before I began the search for my first home I chose Michael as my agent, as he came highly recommended by former clients. The service he provided to me supported his reputation. Michael put me at ease during what could have been such a stressful time. I?ll always remember purchasing my first home. Thanks to Michael it is a wonderful memory and I will refer him to all my friends and family. When it?s time to sell or buy I plan to have Michael Melton by my side!

This was the most proactive sell of a home I've ever been involved in! Michael hit the ground running and had me offers on the table before the ink dried on the listing agreement. He kept me well informed of any hurdles that may arise and gave me options on how to handle them. The sell of the home was very smooth and I felt very appreciated as a seller. If I ever have any real estate needs Michael is the agent I will call and recommend to others!

It is hard to know where to start. We had our home on the market going on 2.5 years when Michael came along on a recommendation from a co-worker. Michael sold the co-workers house, within days, I might add. Anyhow, at this point we had already had three Realtors. Michael was PRO-ACTIVE from day one. Michael had researched all of the previous realtors and the feedback from prospective buyers and he went right to work on a plan. For example, our home had a formal entry living room and then you stepped down into a formal dining area. Alot of people had an objection to that. Michael immediately found someone to give an estimate on having the floor raised. That way when a prospective buyer offered that objection, Michael immediately gave them the estimate for raising the floor. Genius, if you ask me. Also, we had done alot of remodel to the home but it still needed some painting and our budget was limited. Michael contacted a painter that did an al a carte list for us. That way we were able to paint what we could and then the rest could be used by the buyer for bargaining if needed. We are so thankful for Michael, he came highly recommended to us and we now highly recommend him. He worked harder than any other realtor we've ever had. If we ever sell our 'dream home' that we live in now, Michael will be the first call we make. Thank you Michael! Less ... More

My experience with Michael was great. He was very patient and very helpful the whole time that he worked with me. He would suggest house for me, and he was never once pushy with me. He was very determined in finding me a house no matter how long it took. Also, he is a very friendly, nice, outgoing and just a fun guy to be around. I really enjoyed having him as my Realtor rather than someone else.

My husband and I had scoured the listings for over a year. When it was time to make our move, we were facing a serious deadline. Our home buying experience was as important to Michael as it was to us. Michael understood and respected our needs. When we had issues with our finance company, Michael was ready. He recommended the best people to support the process in half the time. So much can go wrong when buying a home... With Michael Melton, so much went right.

Michael responded to my initial request for information within 15 minutes of my request. He said he just happened to be on the computer at the time the request came in, but I found that he always was very responsive. As my purchase was from out of town he was very accomodating in showing us the house. He also arranged to show the house to our daughter who was in teh area. We had come to look at teh house and he was great at getting a purchase offer put together that evening and getting a response back to us on our way home. He was then great at helping us coordinate all the things that needed done to acquire the house. He helped with setting up a home inspection, worked with the seller to facilitate the request we made to be completed. He set up and even changed the closing to meet our schedule. Buying this house has been a very smooth process and most of it was due to Michael. Less ... More

Michael was very knowledgeable and helpful. We purchased a home on a short sale and he was very helpful through the process as well as being upfront and honest as this would take longer than a normal sell. I was glad he prepared us for the time it took to finally close on the house. We have moved in and are very happy. I would recommend Michael to anyone.

Michael was willing to house hunt for us...BEFORE he even met us. We lived in Az & was moving to Indiana. My trusted agent in Az recommended him to us. He was very patient with us through the 50 plus houses we looked at. (I would have given up on us- If I were him....) He just kept a smile on his face and the hunt continued. The minute we stepped into this house I knew I WAS HOME! Thank you Michael for your patience, humor & now....your friendship.

Michael is a great Realtor. He is staightforward, courteous, and honest. He also is patient, understanding, & has great survival instincts. I say this because he survived the years dealing with me while I bought and sold two houses through him. Each time I was extremely difficult as I wanted it my way. I refer him to all of my friends and family and will continue to do so.

We used Michael to help us with the purchase of our first home. As you might expect, we had no idea what we were doing. Throughout the entire process, Michael was very patient with us and took time to listen to and answer all of our questions. Michael was also willing to meet with us any time of the day or any day of the week to accomodate our schedules. In the end, we found the perfect house in a great location. But, the great service did not stop there. Michael came in after-hours on a Friday night to help close the deal. Then, when we moved-in, he even gave us a helpful checklist including phone numbers for many area services we had not even thought about!

We used Michael when we purchased our home in 2009 so it was natural that we use him again when we sold this year. Michael was wonderful. Because it was a relocation and I was required to start my job prior to the home being sold, Michael had to do some chores that I would have done myself such as put out the garbage can and make sure that the property was neat (grass cut, weeded, etc..). He was diligent to keep up the property and to notify me when something needed to be done. He worked hard to help us get a good offer and kept me abreast to what was going on up to and including the closing. I was very pleased and would definitely recommend him to anyone who is interested in the area. Less ... More

If you are looking for someone who has mastered their craft and is very professional, Michael Melton is your Realtor. Michael was referred to me when I sold my house and after my experience I recommend him every chance I get! Michael's attention to detail and making sure my wife and I understand all the fine print so we could make the best decision was a huge plus that stood out to me. Before choosing a Realtor, be sure to meet with Michael Melton.
