Connect with the perfect lifestyle, not just the perfect house.

“You live in a home and you sell a home in different ways and knowing the difference is the first step toward success.”

-Melinda Martin Bailey

Melinda recognizes the purchase or sale of a home is a significant financial decision and a deeply personal experience. She takes pride in assisting clients in making sound decisions while respecting the emotional aspects. She understands when buying or selling a home each client, like each property, is unique and requires an individual approach.

    Connecting with a Lifestyle

    Obvious criteria in selecting a home usually include number of bedrooms, baths, size and location. However, often I see clients buy the exact opposite of what they initially said they were looking for. Deciding on the right home is more than fulfilling a list of criteria, it is equally a lifestyle choice, the beginning of […]

    When introducing your property to potential buyers, ensuring that each prospect is qualified to purchase the property is fundamental. Inexperienced agents often become so driven to get the sale that they do not take the proper steps to vet potential buyers, wasting valuable time and resources. Quality, not quantity, is the best approach to getting […]

Client Experiences

  • Testimonials are given by friends, clients, business associates and family to someone who at one time or another has gone above and beyond for them. Melinda has certainly deserved each and every accolade bestowed upon her. Her sphere of influence remains dedicated and loyal. For me, it is very simple. If I were going to choose an agent to represent me in a real estate transaction, Melinda would be that agent. As a broker, I know what it takes to get the transaction done and done flawlessly. It takes pure unadulterated talent and relentless commitment. I have experienced 18 years of such talent and commitment from Melinda. It is my privilege to know and work with “Simply the Best”!

  • Upon meeting Melinda, I could instantly tell that she is a consummate professional who is both knowledgeable and kind.  It would be an understatement to say that she went above & beyond in every aspect of the home purchase process.  “Let me know if you need anything” is her go-to statement and she means it.  I recommend her without hesitation to buyers and sellers alike.

Although very different situations, both were challenging, and no matter what happened, I was always grateful to have her in my corner. You will not find a more competent, straightforward, or ethical realtor than Melinda. Plus, she’s a delight to work with and knows every part of Savannah. It’s my pleasure to wholeheartedly recommend Melinda Martin Bailey.
