We met Melissa at an open house one Sunday and really liked her. We looked at homes for several months with Melissa and she was so nice to work with. She was very flexible with her schedule and very accommodating with her schedule when we wanted to look at homes. We had a hard time deciding on Shawnee or Olathe, Kansas and Melissa was so patient with us going back and forth when we were looking. Working with Melissa was a very stress free experience for us.

Melissa was excellent at having contacts to help with rapid home improvements and home staging. I really think the home staging made a huge difference in getting the house sold faster. And if it wasn't for the contacts for carpet and handyman, it would have taken much longer to get the house ready for market.

Melissa was extremely helpful in buying my house. She was able to identify many house to look at based on my interests, set up the showings convenient for my schedule, and was prepared at each showing with detailed information on each house. Melissa made the buying process very simple and walked me through each step. She was prompt and responsive with my endless questions. I got a great deal on my dream house because of Melissa's great service!
- Mandy Bronaugh
Melissa was very positive throughout the entire experience, even though we saw over 40 houses.

Melissa did a phenomenal job of taking care of every possible detail during the sale of my house. The pictures that the photographer took were able to portray every positive aspect the home had to offer a buyer. Melissa kept me in the loop during every step of the way. The process went quickly. The house was under contract during the first hour it was listed on MLS. I have recommended Melissa to my friends
- Melissa Burt
We sold and bought with Melissa, I had a bad experience with the agent I bought with 5 years ago the first time I bought a house, so i did not know what to expect. Melissa blew us out of the water! I was not just pleased with her but she exceeded our expectations in both the buying and selling of a new house. I would recommend her to anyone!
- Ryan Haggerty
Melissa was so easy to communicate with and really paid attention to our wants/needs when buying a new house. She sold our house in 14 days and we couldn't be happier with her staging and photography connections that she used to make our house look great for buyers. If we had a concern she would take care of it right away and we would hear back from her almost on a daily basis. She has been so great to work with. We will absolutely recommend her to friends/family and use her again the future.
- Molly Haggerty
Melissa was extremely helpful in both the selling and buying process for us. She was well prepared, proactive and had an open house the 1st weekend on the market. She was very timely with information and answers to our questions. We appreciated her knowledge and assistance during this exciting change.

Melissa could not have been a better match for us. She was so well prepared when we met her for the first time and took us on knowing we would be moving out of state in few short weeks. Her communication with us was excellent: she was reachable by phone, text and email at most times of the day. She guided us in getting our home ready for sale and, knowing we were on a tight budget, she was able to recommend some "biggest bang for your buck" upgrades that we could make happen. With our move came the removal of most of our furniture. Melissa was able to work with a contact of hers in order to get our home staged with temporary furniture and home decor which was a major help in getting our house sold. We moved at the end of January which, in Kansas City, means snow. We were very lucky that the winter wasn't too bad but there were definitely a couple major snowfalls. Melissa made a priority of personally shoveling our sidewalks before any showings. After a Kansas City winter, comes a beautiful Kansas City spring and brings with it spring cleaning and necessary repairs. Again, Melissa spent an afternoon trimming bushes and clearing damaged branches. She recommended an affordable house cleaner who was able to get to our house within a day's notice as well as a lawn company who could trim the trees in our heavily landscaped backyard. When we were approached with an offer, Melissa worked quickly with us and the buyers' agent to come to an agreement quickly. We were able to agree to the terms the same evening we got the offer and couldn't have been more excited! Melissa made the entire process, from putting our home on the market to personally maintaining the property to closing quickly, very easy and explained all questions along the way. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a great realtor who makes selling your home a personal mission.

It took a few months and several houses but I found a fantastic home that I couldn't have been happier with. Melissa kept me looking without letting me get discouraged by a few bumps in the road. Once I gave an offer on the final home I was able to get through all of the paperwork with ease and into my new home. Melissa never discouraged me from checking out all of my options and I was in constant contact from beginning to end.
- Lisa Schulteis
Outstanding transaction from beginning to end, thank you Melissa! Melissa Josenberger is hands down the best realtor I have ever dealt with! Her local area knowledge, attention to detail, and follow up is second to none. In my opinion, there is no such thing in over communication in a real estate transaction and Melissa is a master communicator. She walked me through every step of the purchasing process and was always more than willing to take her time to make sure I was comfortable with the process.
Thank you Melissa! I will be referring everyone I know to you!
- David Ramos
I was a first time buyer, and I had already had a bad experience with another agent. I was confused and overwhelmed, and I wasn't sure how to find an agent I could trust. Melissa really listened to my concerns and what I was looking for. I never wondered if she missed anything - dates for showing me places, when documents were supposed to be ready, what happens each step of the way. I felt like she was on my side, like we were a team. She has an unusual combination of being very personable and engaging, and also efficient, hard working, dependable. Present. It saved me time and stress I was under looking for my first home. Thank you Melissa!
- Krista Simurdak
Our experience was WONDERFUL!!! We were not sure if we were going to have an agent because we were in no hurry to find a home. We soon found ourselves looking at more and more homes and thought it would be helpful to have one person to let us into those homes. We remembered Melissa from one of the first homes we looked at. She was the perfect balance of being helpful but not over bearing. She was very quick to respond and always tried to work her schedule so we could see houses that we wanted to see. We appreciate all that she did and would highly recommend her to anyone!
- Derek & Katie Metcalf
From the very start of our home buying experience, Melissa made everything convenient, understandable and enjoyable. Being first-time home buyers, we were (to say the least) a little in the dark about most of the process. However, Melissa always took the time to make sure we were fully informed about everything without making it seem overbearing in the least. She always went the extra mile to provide us any information or help we needed and she always delivered said help very quickly, succinctly, and with a smile. Melissa made the most complicated procedures seem like a breeze by extending her boundless knowledge of them to us at every turn. Melissa was an absolute joy to work with and made the entire home buying experience fun, educational and stress-free. She combined the best possible attitude with a sharp professionalism to make us feel totally at ease. I will gladly recommend her agent services to everyone I have the opportunity to. Melissa provided us with the perfect home buying experience. Thank you, Melissa!

Our experience with Melissa was awesome! From the first time that Melissa walked into our house she was prepared to help us sell. From targeted information on our area that helped us come to a favorable list price, to her suggestion of the best color to paint our front door, we felt like we had a great plan. Add in the professional photos, and the help with staging, and our little house really shinned. Looking at our house we almost wanted to buy it, but weren’t fast enough. We had our first offer in a day, were in contract in two, and had a signed back-up offer in three. No one expects to sell their house in a day! We were a bit freaked out to say the least, and Melissa helped keep us focused towards finding our new home. We looked at a lot of houses in a very short amount of time, and Melissa was always able to make the schedules work. When we did find the house, Melissa was quick to schedule inspections and help us work through the whole process, including having the roof replaced. Not a small accomplishment. Without her help and the help of her contacts, we would have never been able to make this happen in the time frame available. We listed our house on July 12th, and closed on the sale of our house and the purchase of our new home on August 14th…of the same year! That my friends, was a crazy month! In short, if you make the decision to go with Melissa, you’ve made the first right decision in selling and finding your new home.

Melissa was so attentive to every detail. She helped stage our home and even brought flowers from her own home to give our home a little extra curb appeal. We were so happy with her professionalism and upbeat personality; we really loved working with her and have told every one and anyone we know thinking about selling/buying to call her! This was the best real estate experience we have had. We never worried because we knew everything that needed to be done was getting done.
- Jessica Vestal
Melissa was great to work with. We were first time buyers and she answered every question we had while going through the entire process. Her patience and the time she provided us just made the process go that much smoother. Her knowledge about the various neighborhoods we were interested in seeing helped us make our decision. Thank you so much Melissa for the great job! We are very happy with the house that we now own after renting for many years.
- Bill & Dora Rodgers
Our experience was certainly an interesting one. There were a lot of ups and downs and it was very stressful, especially since we were first time home buyers. Without Melissa we truly couldn't have made it through the whole process. She was there for advice and also willing to just listen to us vent about whatever was bothering us.
Melissa went above and beyond what we could have ever expected her to do for us. I can't think of one thing that she didn't do for us.
- Adam & Alyssa Gobber
Melissa took the time to learn our specific needs and preferences, and worked to find exactly the house we wanted, even as we kept changing our minds on details. Her schedule was flexible enough to get us into the houses we wanted to see, and her feedback was clear and honest. We went through multiple bids on multiple properties with Melissa, and she kept an upbeat attitude even as some things did not go our way. When we finally found the perfect house, she helped us move at lightning speed, and got our offer submitted and accepted before most buyers even knew about the house. Throughout the closing process she kept us well briefed on what to expect, and what items most needed attention. Melissa was a pleasure to work with, and made home buying as low stress and straightforward as possible.

My father had just passed away. I live two hundred miles away from Raytown, MO in Springfield, MO. My dad was now gone so I needed to sell the house. I saw another sign that Melissa had in the neighborhood and reasoned that she must know the area pretty well. The house needed many repairs. Melissa was always in my corner, offering guidance and updates every step of the way. Melissa went above and beyond the call of duty in addressing the property updates while I was three hours away taking care of my businesses. It is my professional opinion that Melissa can be trusted wholeheartedly to take charge and work for you to sell your property. I have been a sales trainer for forty years. Having trained some of the industries best reps, I will attest that Melissa will address every issue, every need and will work for her client in the most professional manner.
- Jim Hearn
Melissa helped us to navigate a tricky situation with our closing and repairs needing to be done. She used her contacts to get our basement in the home we were selling fixed in time to close on our new home. She also was very helpful as the home we were buying was FSBO in turn serving double duty. We couldn't be happier with Melissa and we know without her we wouldn't currently be in what we call our forever home. Thank you so very much.
- Michael & Brianna Vaughn
Melissa is an excellent listener, and she is patient but stays on the subject without making you feel as if there is only one way to do things. We are certain that she had some tough times with the seller, but she handled them with us in mind. We would use her again and again.
- Jim & Merriely Thomasson
We started working with Melissa after the original agent made numerous mistakes and stopped working on selling our house once the updates were done. The house languished on the market through the prime selling season due to poor commitment and execution. Melissa was recommended by the office head as a competent replacement. Melissa over-delivered the promise and was effective and pleasant to work with. I would recommend her again.
