She would explain things over and over again for me until I was comfortable and understood without question. I Highly Recommend Melissa.

Christopher & Jacqueline L.
DeWitt, MI

We were so fortunate to find Melissa to help us complete the sale of our home! Our initial interaction was through her website which was thorough, accurate, easily navigated and told us much of what we needed to know to make an educated decision about using her services. We elected to sign up for her Full Service option and we are so glad we did! She provided us with all the help, knowledge and support you would expect from a true professional at a very modest price point. Melissa was incredibly responsive, gave great advice and followed through with the transaction until the sale was closed upon. Thank you so much, Melissa, for making this process smooth and painless. Your help was very much appreciated. Five stars!!

Scott & Nicole S.

Melissa listed our home and provided us with excellent service. Melissa is very knowledgeable and extremely responsive. She was always available even with my late night emails and early morning telephone calls. Melissa was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her and her company.

Terry & Jody M
Newport, MI

Melissa was great to work with! She was available to us 7 days a week with a very quick response time, usually just minutes, and helped us maneuver through the transaction providing wonderful professional expertise all along the way. She was also very patient and understanding when things got a bit stressful. I joked that I got a realtor and therapist in one. We would not hesitate to recommend Melissa!

Eric & Kirsten V.
Warren, MI

We had a great experience working with Melissa. I couldn’t believe how responsive she was to all of our requests and questions, and she knew far more than we ever hoped to about the process of selling a home. Throughout the whole process I felt like Melissa had my back and the sale went very well. Thank you Melissa! We highly recommend her!!

Timothy & Eiko K.
St. Joseph, MI

Melissa is wonderful to work with. She made my land purchase a breeze! Thanks for all your help, Melissa! I will be using you for all my future real estate transactions.

David S.
Romulus, MI

I found Melissa doing research online for flat fee listing. I decided to go with Melissa due to full service features she offers at an extremely reasonable price and this is one of the best decisions I have made! My house had three offers under two weeks and she did an amazing job from beginning to end. She gave me advice on price point, managed the negotiation process and timely follow up throughout the closing logistics. She’s also extremely prompt in replying to any questions I had. Melissa made what can be a stressful experience a seem less one (if that is even possible when selling a home). This also saved me quite a bit of money on paying seller commission! If thinking of a flat fee listing she is your realtor!

Alicia P.
Royal Oak, MI

Melissa did a great job on our housing transaction. Modern Way Realty is a great way to sell a house. We used their full service flat fee option and will never go back to a standard commission approach.

Bryan W.
Fraser, MI

We found the website for Modern Way Realty and decided to give it a try. We opted for the full service and couldn’t have been happier. She made everything super simple, talked us through every step, and was alway available to answer any questions. She also handled all negotiations and closing details. Melissa was truly a pleasure to work with.

David & Mary W.
Brighton, MI

Melissa is very easy to work with and knowledgeable. Contact by phone or e-mail is prompt through every step of sale. She saves you money; what’s not to like.

Terry L.
Lansing, MI

I would highly recommend Melissa to anyone looking to sell their home without paying high real estate commissions. She managed my sale from listing through to the closing. I was very happy with her service.

Rose A.
Byron Center, MI

I was so happy I found your company and I was able to work with Melissa. She was absolutely amazing and far exceeded my expectations. Everything worked out great! She answered all our questions and took care of everything quick and easy during the selling process. I will be telling everyone I know who is looking to sell a house about Melissa and this company.

Angela & Erik S.
Sterling Heights, MI

Melissa was very helpful in guiding us through the process, helping us to understand what to expect and was very prompt responding to our questions and showings.  I would recommend this service to anyone!

Rodney S.
Grand Blanc, MI

Melissa was great! She handled all of the advertising, including MLS. She handled the negotiations and all communications were done electronically. The buy-sell paperwork were also done electronically with no additional cost. The service was very professional and knowledgeable. I was going to list my property for sale by owner, but this was so much easier. For just a small fee, she did a ton of paperwork and communicating that I did not want to do myself. In a seller’s market, why would anyone pay a high seller’s agent commission for real estate that basically sells itself?!? I will always recommend Melissa and Modern Way Realty.

Christopher M.

Melissa and Modern Way Realty was AWESOME to work with! She was incredibly helpful and always available for us for questions and concerns throughout the entire process. The Flat Fee Service was perfect for what we were looking for and needed for the sale of our house. I highly recommend Melissa Socha and Modern Way Realty!

Brian & Kelly W.
Chelsea, MI

Melissa was a pleasure to deal with always responsive, polite and thorough. She provided me the information I needed to get full asking price and made the process simple. I saved thousands by listing with her and would do it again.

Nicholas S.
Flint, MI

Contacting Melissa Socha with Modern Way Realty was the best decision we could have made when it came to selling our home. My wife and I were willing and wanted to put in the work involved in prepping our house, taking photos, staging, helping show it, and putting on an open house; but, didn’t have quite the knowledge to get through the paperwork, sellers disclosure, title company’s paperwork and other miscellaneous forms involved in the sale of a home. Melissa was extremely informative and helped us every step of the way. She was immediately responsive when needed and the made the process easy. And the best part, we saved a ton of money. Thank you Melissa. Would recommend her to anyone I know.

Grant & Katelyn M.
Grand Rapids, MI

Melissa is amazing! We were so impressed with her from the signing the listing thru the close of escrow. She is professional, detail oriented, a super negotiator and communicator. We highly recommend Melissa and will continue to use her services as we need them.

Steven & Jane C.
Mattawan, MI

Melissa did a wonderful job selling our custom, timber frame home in Chelsea! We had never closed with a flat fee realtor before and Melissa’s price/level of service has no competition. She saves you thousands of dollars while delivering a highly professional and responsive service. She skillfully helped us navigate a multiple offer situation and was with us every step of the way up to closing. I cannot say enough good things about our experience, I would highly recommend her to any potential home seller.

Russell & Kelsey D.
Chelsea, MI

Very pleased with the ease of the process, the communication and the results.  Melissa was on top of things!!

Karrie S.
Trenton, MI

I was doing a for-sale-by-owner home sale and realized I needed the home listed on the MLS for more exposure. After a bad experience with another realtor, I found Melissa on the internet. I gave her a call (she answered immediately) asked her a lot of questions (all of which she was happy to answer) and we listed the house that evening. We chose her “basic service.” Melissa did all of this for a one-time flat fee; we saved about 21K in commissions. She was responsive, friendly, and helpful. Thank you, Melissa!

Josh & Paula N.
Berkley, MI

I can’t imagine going through the twists and turns our property sale went through without Melissa. Her real estate expertise, patience and thoughtfulness are second to none. I highly recommend Modern Way Realty and Melissa Socha!

Roger B.
Cassopolis, MI

Melissa was great to work with. She guided me through the negotiation period and made the closing process very easy. I would highly recommend Melissa if you are selling your home.

Doug H.
Byron Center, MI

We had a great experience working with Melissa to sell our home. She was very informative and kept us updated throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend working with Melissa!

David K.
St. Clair Shores, MI

Melissa helped us sell our home in Kalamazoo and saved us $16,600 in commissions by using the flat fee listing service. She is the most professional, knowledgeable, responsive realtor we have ever worked with. We selected the full service option and felt like we got better customer service than when we sold prior homes using a traditional realtor service. She answered all inquiries promptly, and kept us in the loop throughout the home selling process. We were given access to the Showing Time app to schedule all appointments as well as receive feedback on our listing as soon as it was available. You are responsible for showing your home, or making sure it is accessible for realtors to show (via lockbox). Melissa lists your house on the MLS, negotiates the offers on your behalf, and makes sure the paperwork gets processed to the title agency for closing. We highly recommend Melissa and Modern Way Realty to help sell anyone’s home.

Erik & Genevieve G.
Kalamazoo, MI

Melissa was such a pleasure to work with!! We used her originally for the basic package, but then midway through our transaction, we were having a lot of difficulties with the agent. We upgraded with her and she jumped right in and handled the situation! She communicated daily, she was efficient and we closed a couple weeks later! Melissa is very easy to talk to, friendly, professional and really puts her clients needs above anything. We will be using her again!

Joel G.
Waterford, MI

When we decided to list our house in 2019, we weren’t sure about the flat fee listing – but we’re 100% happy that we listed with Melissa. She was helpful through every step of the process – sharing her expertise from the time of listing to offer to closing. She was very responsive ,often answering calls and texts within just a few minutes. We saved a lot of money by listing with Modern Way, and we highly recommend Melissa to anyone looking to sell their home.

Kevin & Kristin C.
Milford, MI

Melissa was fantastic! Extremely efficient and professional. If you have time to handle your own showings, then going the flat fee route can work well. Melissa has it down to a science.

Darcey O.
Detroit, MI

I have nothing but praise for Melissa. She was responsive throughout the entire process and was helpful when we encountered some hiccups along the way with our buyer’s financing. I used her “full service” option and thought it was a much better experience than a traditional arrangement with a local Realtor

Steven W.
Whitehall, MI

Couldn’t have done it without Melissa. A real pro. Made the entire process better. Great to work with. 10 stars. (wife puts in her 5) Thank you Melissa!

Greg & Therese C.

Melissa Socha is a very experienced realtor/broker. She organized everything for us. We did not have any issues, everything was super smooth. She always responds quick whenever I contacted her. She’s the best. Thanks Melissa!!

Teresa D.
Davisburg, MI

The flat fee listing option is an amazing value. Melissa saved me over $8k in commissions and was super responsive to all my questions for a crazy low fee. Not sure why anyone would bother paying huge commissions anymore when this is an option.

Eric & Thao H.
Royal Oak, MI

Melissa was an excellent realtor! The flat fee system works, and now I am a true believer. I was nervous about doing a 4 sale by owner, but found this service to be exactly what I needed. Melissa went above and beyond to do all the leg work for negotiating and also for getting the closing stuff squared away. It seemed to me that she did the work of both sides, she was motivated to see it get done. I could get ahold of her anytime, she was always quick and very helpful with whatever I asked. I recommend her service to anyone that is serious about selling their home, and would like to do a for sale by owner….but still have the help of a very experienced and knowledgeable realtor! I closed today, thanks to Melissa!

Hillary T.
Clio, MI

Melissa’s full service flat fee listing is an excellent deal and I would 100 percent recommend it to anyone interested in selling their home. She lists your home on the MLS, does all of the paperwork, and negotiates the offers. You are responsible for showing your home. The showings are scheduled with the ShowingTime app which is very convenient and easy to use. She was always very prompt with responses to any questions I had. I was extremely satisfied with her as my agent.

Justin E.
Swartz Creek, MI

Melissa was wonderful to work with! She more than exceeded my expectations. Her response time was almost immediate. She answered any and all questions, made suggestions and handled everything. I would highly recommend Melissa and Modern Way Realty to anyone selling a home. I don’t know why more people don’t take advantage of the Flat Fee Listing service. She saved me over $9,000 in closing costs!!!

Yvonne G.
Carleton, MI

Melissa was very attentive to my listing. She walked me through the process and was very helpful. Changes were made quickly and accurately. I would highly recommend Melissa and Modern Way Realty.

Patrick S.

Our experience with Modern Way Realty was better than expected! We sold our home within weeks without the massive agent fees. Melissa at the agency was more than accommodating and was always available when needed. A+ service!

Melissa was awesome in every way in the entire sales process. Melissa was available at every step in the sales process at the drop of a hat, including evenings and weekends. I thoroughly respect Melissa’s real estate knowledge and her professionalism. As an experienced real estate investor, I can tell you that her services are unmatched compared to other realtors that I’ve used to sell property! I would highly recommend Modern Way Realty for anyone that’s looking to save money, receive expert advice, expert negotiation skills, well researched market opinion. Melissa offers a sensible customer centered approach that will get you home sold!

Quill P.
Hazel Park, MI

My husband and I sold a home with Melissa and had an excellent experience. I was extremely hesitant to go with a fixed rate agent instead of a realtor since this was our first time selling a house and had no idea what to expect. We were trying to sell coming into a very chaotic time for us selling the house and starting new jobs two hours away. I was also concerned that there would be more work on us not using a regular realtor. I found Melissa through online searching and reached out. I’m so glad I did. We went with her full service option and felt like we got exactly what we needed. We did end up getting our own appraisal just to help narrow in on a list price. We ended up about halfway between her comps and the appraisers number; the street we live on is fairly unique in the area. She was extremely knowledgeable and responsive with every question we had. The Showtime app for scheduling showings was great. Negotiations were quick and we got what we we’re hoping for with the property and closing went smoothly. Melissa responded almost immediately to our questions, of which there were many being first time sellers, and it cost us $9,000 less. We listed at the beginning of April, had an offer April 23rd and closed by May 17th. Overall it was an awesome experience and we wouldn’t hesitate to use Melissa again.

Kenneth & Abigail P.
Caledonia, MI

Best realtor ever! Melissa was very professional and always prompt with communication. I highly recommend Melissa and Modern Way Realty. The entire process from listing to closing was excellent.

Sandra C.
Clarkston, MI

I had a great experience with Melissa. This was my first time using a limited service realty to post my rental and it worked great. She was very helpful and most of all, her responsiveness was remarkable throughout. I would be happy to use her again.

Jennifer C.
Clarkston, MI

Melissa operates a flat free brokerage for selling homes. This allows you to get on the MLS without paying 3% to a selling agent. She saved me 1000s of dollars and I think this is the way of real estate in the future. Melissa was very responsive and her fees for listing are very reasonable. The instructions and website were easy to navigate. I’ll tell others about this service!

David & Jennifer C.
Clarkston, MI

Melissa did much much more than what was promised. Anything we asked, she actively pursued and incorporated. Could NOT have asked for a better person. Five star experience ! Highly highly recommended.

I give Melissa the highest possible recommendation – She simply earned it. Her skills are exceptional, her depth of knowledge and council, unparalleled. We simply could not have gotten better assistance, anywhere – at any price. Most of all, she was amazingly accessible, near instantaneous  contact – 24/7. She simply removed all our anxiety and made the whole process, start to finish, very smooth.

First time using a flat fee real estate service. Wow were we impressed! Melissa is everything you need her to be: accessible, knowledgeable, responsive and easy to work with. We used her full service option and she delivered on what was promised. She helped us negotiate the offers and responded to all of the agents requests. She provided us with a “full service” experience for a fraction of the cost. I would not hesitate at all in recommending her!

Jeff K.
Northville, MI

Melissa helped us sell our home on our own. She was available to answer questions and walked us through the process. I was impressed that she even answered emails over the weekend.
