We first met Darya in 2015 when we needed to purchase our first home. Her persistence, attention to detail, and dedication made a huge positive impression on us so we decided to come back for her services again in 2020. We needed to sell our house and buy a new one. She responded immediately and we went home shopping. The house we liked was a little higher than our price range and if we would get it we would have to close within a month.
-Buyer & Seller
If you are looking for a Realtor that goes above and beyond, cares about your needs, and helps you every step of the way then, look no further than Mela Fratarcangeli. When we were looking to purchase a home after selling ours in the bay area Mela came highly recommended by another Realtor. Because we were in the bay area we relied on Mela to find our perfect home based on conversations and a few visits we were able to have with her.
Mela took the time to review the photos of the home we were selling in Washington to gain a better understanding of what we like. We had many conversations throughout the process and she was very patient as we shifted focus a few times, eventually coming back to the initial wish list we mentioned on that first call. Her expertise was invaluable to us and we feel like we gained a good friend. We love our home and are grateful for all of Mela's hard work.
Before you search for a home, you have to understand your needs. Think about the type of place you’re looking for. Are you looking for more bedrooms? Do you want a pool and backyard? Do you want to live close to a school?
You have to make sure you are also financially ready with a budget. One thing to keep in mind is your down payments. The more money you put down, the more you’ll save on monthly payments and the cost of borrowing.
Now that you know how much you can afford, we'll get to look at homes. We'll also take you to view any of the homes that really stand out to you in hopes of finding your dream one.
When it’s time to make an offer on your new home I want you to be 100% confident in the property, the location, and the offer terms. We’ll have an open and honest conversation about what the best offer for you looks like.
After your offer has been accepted, we'll guide you through the sale process between now and closing. It's during this time where the property inspection, appraisal and other contingencies take place.
Congrats! Before you celebrate, we'll schedule the time and location of the closing and do a final walk through of your home. Once that is all said and done, you'll receive the keys to your new home!
We see every client as a lifelong client. Buying or selling is just the beginning of our relationship, and that's the best part.
