“In this tight market, an agent is at their finest by their response time and accuracy, and Melanie Birchfield is in her native territory in both regards. We needed her to get us inside a popular property before everyone else, and she must have thrown all else aside to make it happen. She got our contract prepared and accepted with lightning speed; plus, we had the contract accepted before most others even knew it was available, and we got a fine, new future home that we are excited about. All the details were thoroughly handled. For us, the homebuyers, it was the easiest thing, which is surely the sign of a good agent. Way to go, Melanie!”

“Working with Melanie at Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby's International Realty was a great experience. She listened to our needs for a home and helped us meet those needs within our budget. This was the first home purchase for my wife and me and so were very unfamiliar with the process and what was needed. Melanie helped us to understand the process of buying a home and guided us along the way. She connected us with all of our needed resources like lenders, inspectors and other utility professionals. Overall, we could not be happier with our home buying journey.”

- Clinton Mills
“It is our pleasure to recommend Melanie Birchfield as a real estate agent for anyone looking to sell their home. Melanie worked with us from the very beginning of the process, meeting with us and making recommendations on how to make certain updates to our home that would prove to be an excellent return on investment. Within the first 72 hours, we had several offers on our home. A master with the contract negotiations, Melanie helped us receive and accept an offer that far exceeded our expectations. Melanie has great knowledge of the Atlanta market and there is nothing that escapes her attention when it comes to helping you get your home ready to sell in the area! We would recommend Melanie to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is hands down the best in the business in our opinion and if we ever need to move again she will be our first choice real estate agent. ”

- Kirby and Autumn Ingram
“We’ve had the pleasure of working with Melanie on multiple transactions since we bought our first home in 2016. Melanie is simply everything you would want as you go through the process of buying and selling property. She is intimately knowledgeable of the market, buying/selling strategies, the transaction process and she works incredibly hard to get deals done and ensure a successful outcome. Most importantly, she does all of these things while listening closely to our needs and adapting her strategy to support our goals. Melanie is a delight to work with, an exceptionally talented individual, and without a doubt, the realtor you want on your side!”

- Chas Harris
“Melanie helped me find my very first home in Atlanta, and I didn’t hesitate to jump to her when my fiancè and I wanted to find a place of our own for our next chapter. Melanie worked tirelessly and spent many late nights texting/emailing with me trying to find the perfect house. She guided us through the confusing negotiation and offer process and made us feel supported and heard. She never put any pressure on us to make a decision and encouraged us to take our time. The many house tours and the long wait were worth it because our home is everything we ever dreamed of, and we cannot wait to start our lives together in this beautiful home!”

- Claire Clayton
“This month, I sold my house, thanks to Melanie Birchfield. Professional, detail-oriented, calm, communicative, experienced, supportive ... these are some of the adjectives I'd use to describe Melanie during the past five months. Thank you for the photo album, too!”

- Eileen Nebhut
“When it comes to listing and selling a property, Melanie is caring, efficient and thorough. In addition, Melanie has had a personal experience helping a family member move from a single-family home to independent and/or assisted living. That was my reason for selling and moving. Melanie was able to provide good information about what to take and what to expect. This expertise could become a more significant segment of the real estate market. Melanie has a definite advantage both for herself and for Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty.”

- Julia Palmer
“Working with Melanie was an absolute dream! I found myself in a situation where the rental I'd been living in was being sold just a few months after I resigned the lease for another three years and was given 30 days' notice to find a new home and move into it. I really thought there was no way to make it work, but Melanie calmed my nerves and took charge. Within the allotted 30 days, she found me a house I never thought I'd be able to afford, negotiated it under budget and closed on the property. Every day I wake up and can't believe I went from being kicked out of a rental I loved to owning a house that I love!!! Melanie is an absolutely miracle worker!”

- Claire Yankee
“Melanie made our home buying experience a dream! With our first phone call, I could tell she was passionate and dedicated to helping our family relocate to Atlanta. With COVID-19, we thought finding a house in a different state would be a stressful experience, but Melanie helped us every step of the way by going to open houses for us, walking through houses we had questions about and sending us detailed pictures and honest opinions. When we found our dream home, she made the buying process easy. We were lucky to have her and would recommend her to any friend or family member.”

- Gabriela Greco
“We cannot say enough good things about Melanie Birchfield. She is an outstanding agent who is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and experienced. Melanie was always available to answer any questions we had and is extremely organized and professional. She helped us find our dream home, and we could not be any happier with our experience and with Melanie. We would absolutely recommend Melanie to any friend or family member. Her expertise in Atlanta real estate is unmatched!”

- Jordan W.
“I have worked with Melanie for a few years as an out-of-state investor, and, as someone in the real estate industry, I can attest she is great. Melanie is always readily available and willing to help whenever needed. She is quick to respond and very resourceful. I highly recommended her to anyone seeking a purchase in Atlanta. I look forward to continuing to work with Melanie.”

- Kevin H.
“Melanie was a godsend to me as a first-time homebuyer. She really acted as a step-in parent as my own were unable to be there for the day-to-day decision making. I cannot thank her enough for her guidance, support and, most of all, friendship during and after the home-buying process. I've always felt like she was on my side from the late-night texts and tears that came with losing out on an offer, to her dedicating the time to sit with me and my lender as I navigated the loan process. She really went above and beyond for me as my REALTOR®, and we've developed a long-lasting friendship.”

“I was in the market for my first home purchase. Everything was overwhelming, the verbiage was new and the process seemed daunting. Melanie provided that calming presence. She helped us work with the seller for a better price, with the inspection and throughout the whole process. She was readily available for all questions and concerns and still is now. Do not hesitate to call on Melanie to help you. She is the best!”

- Ivi Hoxhaj
“I really appreciate your help, Melanie. I finally learned how much difference a good agent can make. I wish we started with you. Anyhow, I hope we will have a chance to work together again. Thank you!”

- Xueliang Huo
“Melanie was an absolute pleasure to work with during the sale of our condo in Buckhead. There were several issues that arose with the buyers' end and she was able to navigate those concerns with utmost competence and expediency. Additionally, we had an aggressive timeline that was met with plenty of time to spare! Melanie is a true professional, and we will be using her for all of our real estate needs in the future. Thank you so much for all of your hard work.”

- Chad Rome
“I engaged Melanie Birchfield as a listing agent for my home in Virginia-Highland. Honestly, in this era of self-service and online real estate services, I had briefly contemplated listing the home myself. I am so happy I instead engaged Melanie to act as my advocate in listing the home and ultimately getting it sold. Her service was attentive, professional and prompt. Photos and staging were immaculate. We had four offers even before the home could get on the local REALTOR®’s “Tour of Homes.” We ended up getting multiple offers at asking price and a “clean” deal that closed promptlY with efficient communications throughout the process. In fact, I had a house full of furniture that was going to be a surplus. Melanie even initiated and project-managed getting that sold for me. Her service was comprehensive, resourceful and super effective. I recommend her without reservation to any person looking to sell their home.”

- Jill von Grey
“ I thought real estate agents were all created equal. Then, I met Melanie. I had a great condo in Buckhead, but, to my surprise, my agent could not sell it. After a few months, I decided to change agents. Thank goodness I found Melanie! She had my condo under contract in no time without cutting the price. Now, I won’t sell a property in Atlanta without Melanie as my agent.”

- Drew D. Estes
“Melanie works wonders. I was within a month of closing on the sale of my condo, and I could not find a home I liked. Finally, we found the perfect home, but time was ticking. She pushed my bank and coordinated everything down to the last detail. We closed on both properties the same day. Thanks to Melanie, it could not have worked out better.”

– Drew D. Estes
"I can't thank you enough for walking us through the house buying process. You went above and beyond with so much thought and attention to detail. Thank you for making everything easier for us and finding us a beautiful home!">
- Ali & Simon
"Melanie found us the perfect home and held our hands through the whole process. She was always just a phone call away and took great care over even small details to ensure that we were taken care of at all times. She took so much stress out of the situation and made life much easier for us. I can't recommend her enough."

- Alison Jarvis
"My experience with Melanie Birchfield at Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s Internation Realty was quite certainly unmatched by any real estate firm in Atlanta. As a first-time homebuyer, I began my home search a bit anxious and overwhelmed with all of the details and actions required in the process. I was not sure what to expect of the agent/buyer relationship in a real estate transaction, but Melanie blew me away and made the process easier than I could have ever imagined! From sourcing our potential listings to visiting homes, all the way through the closing process, Melanie was constantly ready with thoughtful and insightful advice as I navigated the real estate landscape and narrowed down my options. Even when I was difficult and indecisive Melanie was ready with options and willing to walk through the journey with me! I am incredibly happy with my new home and could not be more excited to move in. I am thankful for a great home buying experience but also for a new friend that I will certainly refer my friends and family in the future. I highly recommend Melanie and Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s Internation Realty for all of your real estate needs in Atlanta!"

“I would not be in my dream house today if it wasn't for Melanie Birchfield. We had spent the last 22 years in the northern Atlanta suburbs, and I was convinced it was time to move in town - a long-postponed goal of mine. My husband, on the other hand, was less enthusiastic about the idea. Melanie went to work right away, convincing him it was the right thing to do. Knowing how much he hates Atlanta traffic, Melanie got us walking through Virginia-Highland and on the BeltLine. After touring Virginia-Highland and eating at Lady Bird Cafe, my husband was hooked on the "village lifestyle" and the house search began. She knew what I was looking for, and the first house she showed me was my dream house. It was perfect in every way - a 100-year-old renovated Craftsman bungalow in move-in condition. Unfortunately, it was well over our budget. Disappointed, we moved on, looking at another 45 homes, but nothing compared to the dream house. I was discouraged, but Melanie was not. She worked tirelessly, determined to negotiate a price we could all agree on. I was flabbergasted when she made the impossible possible. The house was ours. But it didn't end there. The house was old and we really didn't know what we were getting into. She guided us through the entire process from the inspection to finding a competent structural engineer, to all the financing issues. She even found us a moving company and helped us move! She provided above and beyond service in a professional and timely manner. Every detail was taken care of, and I did not have to worry about anything falling through the cracks. The entire experience was positive in every way. I would do it all over again. Thank you, Melanie!”

- Julie Farmer
"We had a phenomenal experience buying with Melanie. As first-time home-buyers, she helped us navigate the ins and outs of the searching and purchasing process all the way to closing and kept us clued in on every step as well as being able to explain this completely foreign process to us in a way that was easy to understand and put our minds at ease. She listened to our wants and needs as well as helping us realize factors that we had not considered so we could narrow down our search and know exactly what kind of property we should be looking for. She was very flexible in making herself available to fit our hectic and sporadic schedules, working tirelessly to arrange showings for us no matter what day or time even on very short notice sometimes. Melanie made our first home-buying experience incredibly pleasant and we couldn’t have been happier with the home we found in the end."

- Alex Nemetz
"Melanie was PHENOMENAL! She worked with my boyfriend and me for months on helping us figure out what type of home would best fit our lifestyle. Melanie talked us through (and basically held our hand) throughout the crazy home buying process - Which proved to be an exciting and smooth experience for us because of her. She worked with our schedules to ensure that we were shown any and all potential properties in a timely manner. We followed every piece of advice that she recommended and I am SO THANKFUL that we did because she is incredibly knowledgable! Our closing process was easy and I am happy to say that we are all moved in and thrilled with our new home that Melanie found. She not only is an amazing REALTOR® but also became a great friend throughout the process. I would recommend her to any and everyone (in fact I already have!) and know that she can help you find your perfect home!"

- Elizabeth Spratt
"My parents and I have both had great experiences with Melanie and would highly recommend her. She is extremely knowledgeable about the Atlanta market, very quickly understands what you are looking for, makes you feel like a priority, and will go above and beyond for you, even after the deal is done. Melanie was willing to go out of her way to show properties on short notice and meet me and contractors at the house during due diligence. She continued to work hard post-closing to resolve some lingering issues. We have used other agents in the past and they do not compare - you can have peace of mind knowing Melanie will fight for your best interests!"

- Laura Farmer
“We had a wonderful experience buying and selling houses with Melanie Birchfield. Melanie is gifted in her ability to understand the needs of her clients and she found the perfect house for our particular situation. Her attention to detail, advice and direction in listing our house, follow-through, sage thoughts were shared at the appropriate time. She made it happen and we would certainly recommend her and use her again.”

- Floy and John Mills
"Melanie Birchfield was our REALTOR® for a home we purchased. She made it a great experience. Melanie knows the Virginia Highland and surrounding neighborhoods inside out. She took the time to get to know agents who represented the properties we were interested in and get the "inside" story. She was always on time and she worked hard to understand what my wife and I were looking for, which wasn't always the same thing. The first day we came to Virginia Highland to look at homes, I said: "Melanie are you driving today because I have your car blocked in?" Melanie replied, "Oh Ron we're not driving anywhere today. We're walking." She had me from hello at that point, because she knew I was sick of Atlanta traffic and wanted a walkable neighborhood. She has great empathy. I highly recommend Melanie Birchfield."

- Ron Farmer
“I connected with Melanie through my brother and sister-in-law, after she helped them find their first home. I can honestly say I have no idea how I would have found a house without her! She listened to every one of my wants and needs and was able to effortlessly guide me in the right direction. After helping me find my dream home, Melanie then helped me find every service I needed to make my new home perfect. I am beyond grateful for all of the hard work Melanie did while guiding me through the home buying process, and I know that if I ever decide to move, she’ll be the first person I call!”
