Deland Real Estate was a pleasure to work with from the inception of deciding to sell our home until the final day of the sale. Melissa Deland, with her partner, Jan Boyce, offered us their incredibly good advice throughout this process. Communicating with us in timely emails, texts, and phone calls kept us well informed on a daily basis as to how the sale was progressing. We have sold many houses over the past 50 years. This experience with Deland Real Estate was the best one we have ever had. I will happily recommend this team to all of my friends and family.

We have had three wonderful experiences working with Melissa (2 as buyers, 1 as sellers) during which she has been upbeat, organized, super responsive, deeply knowledgable of the Boston-area market, and, ultimately, greatly successful in meeting our needs. We have recommended her before and would unequivocally do so again!

Melissa is AMAZING! We essentially asked her to move the sun, sky and moon to find us the perfect home that we could move into within a month, and she delivered in spades. We relocated from California to Massachusetts and had the keys to our beautiful new home within two days of arriving. If you're ever looking to purchase in Massachusetts we highly recommend her. Thanks, Melissa!

I received very poor advice from a previous realtor resulting in my home not selling. Then my neighbors recommended Melissa as she had helped them both buy and sell. Working with her resulted in my home selling after only one open house. She was in constant contact with me throughout the process and answered all of my questions. She had all the knowledge and experience I needed. I would absolutely recommend her to any seller!

Thank you so much to Melissa for helping us get our dream home! We couldn't have done it without her. It's such a crazy process, but Melissa made it very easy for us. Thank you again for everything!

I can’t recommend Melissa enough! She is thorough, sensitive, and determined. A perfect combo to get the job done. She knows the market and prices homes right on target. She helped us sell our home - one weekend and done. Doesn’t get any better than that.

Erica and Seth

We were not sure if we could pull off our goal of searching for a home in Massachusetts while living in California with two kids, two full time jobs, and a tight timetable! But Melissa calmly and efficiently guided us through the entire process and, before we knew it, we had a contract on the perfect home with time to spare. Melissa frequently went above and beyond -- whether rushing across town to view a home for us or rearranging her schedule to be available whenever we were in town. Most importantly, she was fun and easy to work with!

Melissa came highly recommended to us from a friend, and she was such a pleasure to work with. She answered all of our questions rapidly and without judgment. As first time homebuyers, we had a lot of questions! When we were panicking on a Sunday night trying to rush in our bid, she was calmly on the other end of the phone taking care of everything. She was responsive and persistent, and had our complete confidence throughout the entire process. We are so grateful to Melissa for all of her help, and now live in our dream home!

Melissa did an amazing job helping us find our home this spring. It was not an easy closing for reasons outside our collective control and she stayed with us and fought for us! I can not think of a better partner in helping you find your new home!!! I would not use anyone else.

Melissa has been my real estate agent for over six years and for multiple transactions. She goes above and beyond at every step, and has been an absolute pleasure to work with. She is professional, confident, knowledgeable, friendly, and exceptionally responsive. I would absolutely recommend her.
