“It’s hard to even know where to begin with Melana Wilson! She has been an important part of our lives for two years now, from helping us finda a rental to when we first moved to Virginia two years ago, to keeping in touch with us until the time came around for us to look at buying again!
With every change, came a flexible and supportive Melana. We had begun to think that we would have to compromise on so much and “give up” on things we really wanted, but she kept looking until she found us exactly what we wanted! On top of that, she helped us negotiate a great price that both buyer and seller were pleased with!
Truthfully, she did EVERYTHING to help us! Without Melana, we honestly don’t know how we would have come to this place in our lives! We will never use anyone besides Melana and Michael Wilson and will shout from the rooftops to recommend them to anyone that may be looking for a realtor that has integrity and heart.
Thank you Melana and Michael!! You have given us a wonderful gift to really start our life in Northern Virginia!”

You’re the best and you delivered everything and more than promised. I truly appreciate all the hard work you did, from our first meeting to our dinner celebration. We overcame every hurdle with ease, because of your professional approach and dedication. You were always honest and forthcoming every step of the way and there were many steps.

Theresa L. - Ashburn Village - Ashburn, VA
I can’t say enough about how pivotal it was to have Melana Wilson as my Realtor. Because of her knowledge, dedication, commitment and support I am now living in my home, a home that my family and I love coming home to everyday. At our first meeting, Melana and I spent a long time discussing my financial picture, with her providing guidance on lining up all that was needed to be an aggressive buyer in this market (e.g., pre-approval letter, obtaining credit score, etc.). Most importantly, she listened to what I was looking for in a house and she helped me articulate those personal factors that were important in making a house my home. For example, for me one factor was having a back deck area in which I could enjoy a quiet cup of coffee with a view of trees.
Over a month’s time, we toured multiple listings, taking each tour as an opportunity to refine my search. Without fail, if there was a house newly on the market we were touring it.
After finding my home on a Sunday afternoon, she was by my side at my apartment until nearly midnight, drawing up the contract. When asked, she offered referrals for home inspection, settlement, etc. and while the house was under contract, ensured steps were completed in a timely manner.
Melana never neglected the fine touches. For example, on moving day, she arrived with coffee and donuts for the crew that morning, packed a cooler full of cold drinks for the hot day, and sent pizza for lunch! Did I mention after closing, when I was uncertain about an item I needed to purchase for the home, she took me to Home Depot to ensure I purchased the correct item? Melana is an outstanding realtor who not only operates with integrity, she truly cares about her clients finding their home. Without reservation and with strong recommendation I encourage anyone looking for a home in this market to contact Melana.

Melana Wilson is the reason we are finally adjusting comfortably in the NoVA area! From day one she was extremely patient, understanding, and supportive of us, which given our crazy, ever-changing situation, says a lot! With every change in our criteria for a home, she happily adjusted our search to meet our needs. She was also very accommodating with our opposing schedules by showing houses during the day to my husband who worked nights, then again to me during the evening hours. She was extremely patient and supportive as we became frustrated with our own personal struggles, and never let us give up! Above and beyond is how I would describe Melana. After all the different housing options we explored, we decided renting for a year to get a better grasp of this area was the best decision for us. And again, she switched gears and found us a wonderful, worry-free rental! When we are ready to buy, there is no doubt we will be using Melana and will recommend her to anyone that mayneed a realtor! Thank you Melana, our little family is finally settling in!

Hiring Michael Wilson was the best thing that we ever did!
We found ourselves in the unfortunate position of owning a townhouse that we bought when prices were high in northern Virginia, then moving out of state. We rented it for several years hoping the market would recover so that we could sell without taking a loss, but that didn’t happen.
To make matters worse, we had a tenant who didn’t want to move ... then the tenant died suddenly. What a nightmare!
Mike took this all in stride and worked with the family members to make sure their needs and ours were met. He got our property on the market very quickly and got multiple offers, even with a short sale.
Mike and his team kept us informed every step of the way, handled all the negotiations, secured approvals from both banks very quickly, and helped us through all the paperwork until closing.
From nightmare scenario to feeling a huge sense of relief when the sale was done, all in less than 3 months.
We couldn’t have done it without Mike.
Whether you are facing a difficult sale or a regular sale, I know that Mike will help you sell your house too!

I am sharing with you the success story of my experience with Melana and Mike Wilson.
From the time I contacted Melana to the time I went to settlement was something less than 60 days. I was able to sign a contract to sell my home and find a new home and go to settlement on both properties within a week of each other. No other real estate agency or company could ever accomplish such a quick and easy process.
The Wilsons proved to be very friendly, efficient, and provided constant contact and follow up. It was a pleasant and painless process!

We Love this house!!! The neighborhood is great, very quiet.
Thanks again for everything you and Mike have done for us!

Melana and Michael Wilson contacted me after they contracted to purchase a house - they were interested in assigning the contract to someone who would remodel the house. Throughout the process, they were sincere, honest, and forthright about all aspects of the deal, followed up promptly on everything they needed to do to complete the sale, and arranged for a very smooth settlement process through their attorney. Further, they were very honest with the seller about what to realistically expect and what she would get from the sale, and they left the seller feeling good about the transaction.
I hope to do many more transactions with the Wilsons!

May thanks again, you've been a star!

When I first worked with Mike, one of my biggest obstacles was my propensity to get overwhelmed by the number and variety of options staring me in the face. Mike was one of the best I’ve ever seen at keeping the big picture in perspective, and picking the exact, right next thing to do.
Mike has the ability to look at my goals, my tools and assets, and develop a common-sense, logical plan which will employ the tools to maximum effect, and get us to my goals.
We've been blessed to know Mike and Melana for a long time and have worked with them on several occasions. Mike and Melana are our 'go-to' real estate professionals. We recommend them to anyone who wants the best Realtors in the business ... we don't recommend anyone else!

My family and I had just been re-located to the North Virginia area from Texas and corporate housing was ending. It was August and school was also starting. We were in a difficult spot because we didn’t have the credit scores and the necessary down payments to purchase a house. This is because my wife and I had just had a CH 7 bankruptcy discharged awhile back. We needed a place to rent to get some time under our belts, some stability for the kids and some credit re-established.
Michael and Melana Wilson helped us greatly in this regard. They took a chance on us with a two year lease and offered to report the good payments to the credit bureaus. We had a goal in mind of trying to buy a home in a couple of years and went about going for it. We made all our payments on-time, every time. We saved when we could and made sure we took great care of the place because we wanted to show responsibility and good faith.
The good news is that at the end of our two year lease, we were able to buy a brand new home in Gainesville. We got a good reference from the Wilson’s and the rest is history. It was really a blessing to meet a family like the Wilson’s who were willing to rent us their place and allow us the time we needed to get back on our feet.
