Melinda was such a wonderful realtor to work with. I am a first time buyer and I was going through the first time buyer's bond program. I had no idea about the process, but Melinda guided me through it all. She honestly went above and beyond, was very responsive, and took the time to get to know me. I am happy that she was a part of this new chapter in my life.

After trying unsuccessfully for several months to sell my rental property, I contacted Melinda. I was frustrated and ready to rent the house out for another year. The house had only a few showings and very little interest with buyers. During our initial conversation, Melinda was confident that with a new approach we’d be able to sell the house. I listed the house with her and she quickly updated the marketing material, had new photos taken to highlight the charming historical features and we adjusted the listing price. Melinda spent many hours getting the house ready for sale - she had the carpets cleaned, painted the kitchen and aired out the dog scent. The new approach worked and we immediately had many showings and two offers in just a couple days!
I live out of state and throughout the sale I knew exactly where we were in the process. Melinda was in regular contact with me via phone and email, and used modern technology so I could sign all documents electronically. She made it very easy.
Melinda’s professionalism, experience and heart are what make her a top real estate agent. I highly recommend her!

Melinda did such an amazing job selling my home. She went way above and beyond helping get the house ready for sale. I always felt she had everything under control and was giving me good advice. It all paid off, my home sold with a full price offer! Highly recommended. Thank you Melinda!

I enjoyed every moment of working with Kristina. She worked tirelessly to help me find the perfect home. She was very accommodating, super knowledgeable-and always had a positive attitude and a smile on her face. She definitely became a friend throughout this process, and I’m going to miss talking to her every day!

We received Melinda's name through a recommendation and we couldn't have been more pleased! The sale of our home was under unique and urgent circumstances and Melinda stepped right in and helped beyond what her job title would usually consist of. She not only has a passion for selling homes she has compassion for her clients and to us that made such an amazing difference. Melinda fought tooth and nail for the sale of our home to go quickly and smoothly. If we ever are back in the area looking to buy we will call Melinda Ray. When someone is looking for a realtor that does awesome work we will give them Melinda's number. Thank you Melinda!
At the age of 18, considered to be the threshold of adulthood, Melinda Ray began her real estate career working for her mother who at the time, was a condominium sales executive.
For the following 30 years, Melinda has been licensed in five states. Within that time, she has earned multiple designations. These include:
o Graduate Real Estate Institute, GRI
o Bank Properties Specialist, BPO
o Institute Real Estate Marketing, IRM
o Certified Sales Person, CSP
With continuing education efforts in the real estate arena, Melinda is exceptionally knowledgeable and qualified to address any real estate scenario for buyers, sellers and investors.
To suggest that real estate is in Melinda Ray’s DNA is precisely to the point. Her grandfather was a home builder in north Alabama along with her father, an architect and engineer practicing in Georgia, Alabama and Saudi Arabia. Melinda’s mother moved from condominium sales to owning three Re/Max offices in the greater Atlanta area and became president of the Cherokee County Realtor Association. Much as her mother, Melinda has been a self-made success in the real estate business.
This success is equally a result of very specific personal characteristics. First among these is an unflinching desire to truly provide the very best customer experience. There is no detail that isn’t considered and a problem-solving mindset helps manage the entire buying/selling process for her customers. Melinda recognizes her job as one of the most important stakeholders in the business because she helps people make some of the largest investment decisions of their lives. She equally recognizes that to be a great agent, one must possess and exhibit integrity, a strong work ethic, adopt ever-changing technology, manage customer expectations, ability to communicate intelligently and oodles of patience. To top it all off is her contagious, fun and very friendly personality.
The proof is in the blank report card she extends to her customers so they can evaluate her performance. This is a fundamental best practice that adds a level of accountability rarely seen in the real estate business. The proof is also in the formal recognition of Melinda as one of America’s Top 100 Real Estate Agents.
