What Do Our Clients Say About Us?

"Hey Jim and Melania,

Just wanted to thank you guys so much for all your help! You was very attentive to all our  needs throughout this process. Whenever we had a question, you had an answer, when we reached out you was sure to contact us back and you fought for us at every point that called for it. We are so grateful to have had you guys as our agents with selling our home. We will gladly refer you to everyone in the GA area and actually have recommended you to our neighbors who are soon looking to sell their home. Your customer service and real estate skills are A1 and we appreciate that. And to top it off we sold our home in 1 day!!!! Talk of the town! :-) Major kudos.

Again thanks so much,

Best wishes,

Jonathan and Sharde' Walker"

"Brian and I can't thank you enough for taking the time to help us find our perfect home!  It was intense once we found it and put a bid in, but prayers and y'alls great experience made our dream come true.  We can't explain how lucky we feel.  You really helped us through a stressful process.  It has been a great pleasure working with y'all and have enjoyed getting to know the both of you."  Laura and Brian Evans

"Thank you so very much for all you have done for our family.  We can't express how much you both have meant to us and how much we appreciate all the time you put into our sale and purchase.  We pray that God continues to bless your family and we hope to see you soon!"  Erik, Mandy, Jack & Emmalyn Pace

"Jim is awesome! We found him by chance, just because he was listing a house that we found online. We called him, and he was ready to take us out the very next day! We had a great time house hunting with him, and were completely satisfied with the whole process (which lasted 2 months, and many, many house-hunting days/evenings/weekends), and Jim was there for us the entire way!  Jim always gave us great advice, and even steered us away from multiple houses. He always worked with our schedules to go tour homes, and was always just a phone call (or email) away!  We have since referred him to 3 different people who also purchased a home with his help!   Thanks Jim!"   Michael and Brittany Sturdivant


"I just wanted to thank you for all you did marketing and selling our home.  In this current real estate climate, I was impressed that we could sell our home in the short amount of time it took.  You did a great job in getting it out there for people to see, the pictures online looked great, and you were quick to answer any of our questions or concerns.  I don't think Ray and I will be looking to move again anytime soon, however, if I hear of anyone needing to relocate, buying or selling, I will be sure to recommend you."   Teresa Maxwell     


"We want to thank both of you for the great job you did in marketing and selling our home in Marietta.  You came highly recommended, but we were still amazed at the interest you generated, the selling price, and how quickly our property went under contract.  We were quite apprehensive about the home selling process at first, but you knew just how to price our home, target the right segment of buyers and get the best deal possible for us - - even MORE than our asking price!"  Don & Janet Baughman


"From the moment we got introduced to them, Jim and Melania took care of our 'First-time-buying' experience with polished professionalism and heart-warming personal attention. Although we were equipped with diligent research, it was no match to their expertise, skills and valuable connections. They were very meticulous and accommodated our every desire and detail. Their patience and sincerity through the whole process gave us confidence and their guidance steered us to make informed decisions. Their service is stellar, but more importantly, they are incredible people. We are absolutely thrilled that we chose them to partner with us as we bought our first home."    Jitto and Sheba Titus


"The Saltarellas are a dedicated team of wonderful professionals with expertise, knowledge and honesty. They're keeping you informed every step of the way and always get back in touch quickly when you have a question or concern. Melania works true magic with outstanding photography of your home!"   Elisabeth Holt


 "Thanks so much for all your help these past couple of months.  You managed to make what could have been an extraordinarily stessful time for us relatively painless.  We especially appreciate your investment of time, your flexibility and your patience in showing us house after house so that ultimately we could be comfortable with our choice.  You listened well to a couple of very picky clients and I can't begin to tell you how grateful we are for your expert guidance along the way.  We will happily engage your services should we ever have to leave this home, and we will wholeheartedly refer you to friends in need of an agent."  Lynn & Mark Thibideau


"I want to thank you and Melania for your outstanding support in the sale of our home.  As you know, my wife and I interviewed three other agents for right to assist us in the sale.  You had the strongest presentation of all and most importantly, you and your team delivered on everything you presented!  You did what I feel are the most important parts of the realtor job - - you brought prospective buyers to our door and gave us the opportunity to sell our home within the time period we required.  The guidance during the negotiation period was also much appreciated.  Please feel free to use my name as a reference to any of your perspective clients.  Thanks again for all your help."  Dave Winn


"Thank you for helping us find a beautiful home.  Words can't quite express how grateful we are to you.  As first time homebuyers, we had heard many horror stories and weren't quite sure what to expect.  From our first meeting, you erased our negative thoughts and we felt more than confident that you would take care of us.  Your professionalism, knowledge, and above all else, your kindness, reassured us constantly throughout the process.  We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone and we continue to sing your praises!"  Jerodd and Kashima Atwood.


"Thank you so much for everything!  You guys made the selling process so easy for me - - especially with me living out of state.  I couldn't have asked for better realtors.  From the moment I met you, I knew you would be great!  Once again, thank you for all of your hard work and effort.  I really appreciate it."          Elisa LaBram


"Thank you both for everything!  We love our new home."  Diana and Larry Morris


"Thank you for your hard work and dedication to selling our house."  Bobby and Astrid Whirley


"Thank you very much for helping us find our dream home.  We are very pleased with your service.  Thank you again.  Sophia and Richard Wang


"Just a quick note to thank you so much for the effort you have put into selling our home.  I am blown away with your professionalism and the talent you two possess in marketing.  Somehow you managed to get our house on the front page of the Atlanta Journal, in the Atlanta Business Chronicle, several magazines and six times on national TV on HGTV, open houes, phone calls, meetings, strategy sessiions, luncheons. . . now that's marketing!  I know we have a unique, high end, unusual property in the millions of dollars and we were a tough sell to a very unique set of clients but somehow your skills of getting us on the forefrunt of every available marketing technique was amazing and actually quite fun to watch.  We are overjoyed and thrilled with the job you performed.  I would so recommend you to anyone who needs a great real estate team!"  Bill Clary


Thank you for a job well done!  You did a great job pulling this deal together."  Bruce and Carol Gould


"After our home had been on the market for seven months with other real estate agents, we hired the Magic Realtors.  It was like going from a court-appointed attorney to Perry Mason.  They sold our home in twelve days for the full asking price, which was more than anyone in the neighborhood has ever sold for.  They coordinated every step of the closing, including negotiating repairs to our advantage.  At the closing table we had a check for $8000 more than we had expected.  What a great  experience!"       Suzanne & Tommy Ellis


"Words are so inadequate when trying to tell you how grateful I am for everything you have done.  You are a very special couple; talented, professional, caring, considerate and filled with integrity.  It was a joy to work with you."          Myra Fisher


"You were not pushy at all.  You let us set the pace.  Everything went very smooth.  I think working with a team is great.  If one is not available, the other is.  This could have been a stressful time for us, but you made us very comfortable.  We LOVE our new home!!"  Christopher & Rhonda Lamb


"Just wanted to thank you for the awesome job you did selling our home.   We appreciate your hard work, dedication, and professionalism!  Jim & Michelle Norweck


"Thank you for all your time and patience, and, of course, yourr help in finding us a new home in a new state!"  Wendy, Baily & Scott Sheffield


"After interviewing several realtors in the area for our relocation project, we chose Melania Saltarella.  And we struck gold!  What a tremendous asset she is to your company.  The services we received far exceeded our expectations.  Thank you Melania and company for providing top notch personal service to our family during a quick and difficult transaction.  You are the best!"          Sharon Lantis


"Thank you again!!!  You have certainly made our relocation to your city EASY!!!"  Bernadette and Frank Roettinger


". . . thank you for your assistance and professionalism to get me through what is normally an arduous task.  I know it`s your job but I think you went beyond that and I am grateful."  Harry Philips

"I'm thankful that you once again came into my path.  You find for me just the right house at just the right time."    Rae Lockett


"Rob and I cannot begin to truly express our incredible gratitude for all that you did for us.  You are so amazing!  I know you think that you are just doing your job, but we know tht you go above and beyond in order to help make everything go so smoothly.  Your experience, professionalism, strong ethics and good nature make you excellent agents (and a wonderful team to work with).  We are very impressed and you can be assured that we will spread the word to all of our family and friends that you guys are the best agents out there."  Sandy Goren


"The Magic Realtors Team worked very hard before, during, and after the purchasing of our home to make sure we were satisfied!  We especially appreciated their professionalism."  Willie and Lillie Hardman


"The Magic Realtors neve made me feel pressured into making a decision, buying more expensive, or buying something I wasn't comfortable with.  Working with Karina was awesome.  She was great, understanding, upbeat, and positive."    Tiffany Vennie


"We just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work and commitment.  We appreciate all the e-mails and long drives you went on in search of our home.  We are very happy with the work you both have done and will pass on the good news to all of our friends."             Jeffery Herbert and Susan


"We simply can't thank you enough.  You're the best!"  James, Sharon, & Natalie Bollinger


"Melania LISTENED to what I wanted.  She searched for that.  She knew before she showed me the house that it would be the one I would buy!  Then she found the BEST mortgage rate for me when my first lender went back on his word!"  Ms. Sharlene Wiley


"From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to helping us find a house.  I told my best friend that I had the best realtors ever.  I told her everything you did for us.  I told her ahow many houses you found for us.  How you really let us call the shots in how many houses we'd look at per day.  How you guided us through our contract and made suggestions for our counters.  How you made sure that we didn't get cheated on the repairs that had to be done.  How you worked Saturday AND Sunday to conform to OUR tight house finding schedule.  How pleasant and nice and sweet you both are.  Ben, Phoenix, and I truly appreciate everything you did for us.  Without the two of you, we might never have found this house.  You two are wonderful Realtors, as well as wonderful people, and you deserve every award you receive (and then some!!)."  Christine Stokes.


"Thank you hardly seems enough.  You have been such a help in so many ways.  We're so grateful and blessed to have found not only a great realtor, but an unbelievable person.  I have truly felt like your only client!"  Sharon Gowins


". . . Mindy and I have had the opportunity to move several times over the past ten years.  In fact, we have moved to three different states within the past 5 years.  After working with you, it is nice to know there are still real estate agents who listen, understand, and really care about their clients."  Brian Mortensen


"They arranged our move, helped us move, and had everything in place so all we had to do was go to bed.  We are seniors and are not in good health."  Mr. Charles Roberts


"It is great having an agent like you on the other side of the transaction.  Loving and caring yet loyal to your client was my most recent experience with you.  Sandy Johnson


"They got everything taken care of in time for our closing date, despite the fact that our appraisal had not yet been received by the mortgage company."  Samuel Burtz


"Thank you for the most enjoyable experience of purchasing a home possible.  You are an amazing professional. . ."  Mary Hines


"Every hurdle I had to cross, jump and scale, you were there.  What can I say but THANK YOU for all your hard work, support, trust and friendship."  Neal Wilcocks

"Thank you both for all your help and kindness to us.  You are very professional."  Jo & Peter Cross

"We want to thank you and Jim for all your hard work and time spent to help us find our house.  It has been a true pleasure working with you and hopefully we can maintain a friendship.  Thanks again."  Brenda & Jim Facello


"I`m so looking forward to the friendship that evolved from our professional relationship.  Thanks for everything.  You`re the best!"  Charlie Wylie


"Thank you so much for helping us to sell our home this past year.  Without your website, online photos, and expertise, we would not have sold so quickly.  Thank you. "  Ray & Teresa Maxwell


"Melania Saltarella represented us in the sale of two properties, one of which was our home.  Having retired, we wished to relocate to Oregon.  We wanted the best possible price for our home and knew that we would move before it sold.  Melania led us through each step in getting our home ready for sale.  She ws always available to answer any questions, and her knowledge and expertise were invaluable.  Her attention to detail was remarkable.  She was very knowledgable regarding the paperwork, contracts, etc, saving us valuable time.  Melania`s caring attitude and professionalism gave us a very favorable perception of what a real estate agent should be - - many times going that "extra mile" to take care of responsibilities regarding our home.  Through Melania`s knowledge and intervention we were able to get much over the original asking price for our home.  We will ask Melania to represent us if we purchase a second home in Georgia.  We will definitely recommend her to our family and friends."  Lowell & Rea Lockett


"I just wanted to let you know that Jennifer and I are very happy to be working with you and Jim in the sale and purchase of our home.  Your combined knowledge and expertise is very reassuring during this potentially turbulent time."  Fabian Wiltshire


"I am writing this letter to let you know what an asset Melania Saltarella is to your firm. My husband and I both come from families who are entrenched in the real estate business but this was only our second purchase.  We are also both in the airline industry which relocated me to Atlanta and my husband to Maine following 9/11.  Ron and I created a list of items that were most important to us and Melania showed me 100 houses in thirty neighborhoods before I fell in love with Country Walk.  I was a bit nervous about choosing and purchasing a home without my husband`s input.  Never once did Melania get frustrated with me in the slightest.  She remained absolutely positive that "the" house was waiting for us.  Once the neighborhood was selected, she showed me every house that was for sale in the development.  We also drove by houses that seemed to have the floor plan I was looking for and she got me in to see those (These homes were not even for sale yet!)  Melania made up flyers and did cold calling to find me a home.  Coming from a customer service industry, I am always impressed by those who do their job well, and enjoy it.  Melania is one such individual who is extremely knowledgeable in the process and actually made buying a house fun.   She had valuable contacts for everything from financing to carpet cleaning.  Each vendor delivered wonderful service, was knowledgeable about all his or her products, flexible around my schedule, and extremely easy to work with.  Once the sellers had agreed to our price and we signed the contract, Melania`s real work began.  It seems the sellers had set a closing date that was not convenient to them and they wanted to vacate the property days later.  They also had play equipment in the backyard that was to be removed no later than one week after closing.  Needless to say, this last item was important to me because I wanted to put sod down where the playground had been and bring my dog down from Washington DC.  I had been living in an extended stay hotel for three months while their new home was being built and had been looking for a home before that.  All in all, I had been without my dog and husband for over four months.  The sellers called nine days before closing to say the earliest the equipment could be removed was three weeks after the closing.  At this point, I admit, I was upset.  Melania took care of everything as always.  The situation was completely resolved before end of business that day.  Not only was the playground going to be removed by the first week after the closing. . . but the day before closing!  This was a win-win for everyone.  The sellers` children were originally upset due to the fact that it would not be at the new house when they moved in.  Because of Melania`s quick thinking and negotiating skills, she was able to make that work best for all parties involved.  I can go on and on about the words of wisdom and advice she passed along, as well as the fact that she treated me more like family than a client.  This was the most unique part of the hours we spent together.  I have met several agents but I have never had the opportunity to work with an individual of the caliber of Melania Saltarella.  Please accept this short note as thanks for the spectacular job that she did on our behalf."  Mary Pedrosa Hines


"Thank you so very much for all your assistance and expertise during our home purchase.  Dennis and I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity of working with such great professionals.  With our being new to Georgia, we felt "lost."  You helped us confirm we made the right move."  April O`Malley


"Great agents!  We would definitely use them again and recommend them to friends and family."  Andrea & Tommy Lockhart


"It has been a great pleasure working and getting to know you.  Your kind and generous heart enriches the lives of everyone you touch.  Thank you very much for allowing me the opportunity to work and learn from you."  Jessica Yun


"Thank you so much for all you are doing for us in our absence.  We really do appreciate it."  Bari Ryan

"We are writing this letter in great appreciation for Melania Saltarella.  Melania helped with our corporate relocation from Michigan to the Atlanta area in September 2001.  Her extreme professionalism, organizational skills and attention to detail made our new home shopping a breeze.  She has such a great personality also.  This made the mood of the relocation comfortable.  During our initial visit she ensured that our time was not wasted by proactively arranging over 25 showings from the information we provided.  Her vast knowledge of the geography guaranteed we did not zig-zag back and forth between towns to see all these showings.  During the first five showings Melania was able to interpret our true desires for a home and adapt her offering to quickly provide options to fit our profile.  After a long exhausting day of showing us homes, Melania spent hours later that evening organizing more optiions.  Melania has proven her dedication to her client and the tight schedule needed to adhere to in a relocation scenario.  Throughout the whole relocation, Melania was in constant contact with us providing all the next steps required (i.e. inspections, final walk-thru, and closing appointment).  She arranged several fixes that needed to be made to the house before closing and followed up to ensure they were completed on time.  Our closing was orchestrated by Melania.  She arranged the title lawyer and attended in person.  It was a perfect close in my mind.  After close, she was able to recommend an excellent discount carpet  cleaner to clean our carpets.  A true turnkey operation.  We are very satisfied with the location and amenities of our new home.  Not to mention, we anticipate a resale value higher than the norm.  When and if the time comes, Melania will be our selling agent.  Should anyone we know ask for a real estate broker, Melania will be our first suggestion."  James & Brenda Facello


"We are writing to let you know what a wonderful experience it was to work with Jim and Melania Saltarella.  We received excellent service throughout the entire process of selling our home.  The Saltarellas are not only personable and professional, but they are also extremely ethical and knowledgeable about the real estate market.  Prior to listing our home with Jim and Melania, we had gone through a very difficult situation with another realtor where the contract on our house fell through just two days before we were supposed to move.  Needless to say, we were very discouraged and searched hard to find a new realtor that was not only experienced but also trustworthy.  The Saltarellas definitely exceeded our expectations.  They were always available to answer our questions and they offered sound, experienced advice.  Jim and Melania remained in close contact with us weekly (sometimes daily).  They made visits to our home at least once a week to check on directional signs and replenish flyers.  They used a wide variety of marketing techniques to ensure the most exposure for our home while also paying careful attention to detail in order to make our home "stand out" and sell quickly in a very tough market.  More importantly, Jim and Melania kept their word.  We were very impressed with how they went above and beyond everything they told us they would do at their initial presentation.  We feel very fortunate to have them as our realtors.  We highly recommend them to anyone who needs a real estate agent.  We just can`t say enough about what a positive experience it was to work with them.   They are an excellent reflection on you as well as Prudential Georgia Realty.  If you ever have clients that would like a reference for the Saltarellas, please feel free to give them our name and number."   Sincerely, Rob and Sandy Goren.


"Thank you for your excellent service.  We are very happy with the home we purchased.  Thanks for helping us find our dream house!"  Hal Lee and Tracie


"I want to thank you very much for all the effort you put forth in finding us the perfect home.  You really took the time to understand what we were looking for in our new home and didn`t waste any of our time by showing us inappropriate houses.  I truly appreciated how you were so well-informed about finding potential problem sources in some homes that we may have easily overlooked.  Your web site, www.magicrealtors.com was extremely informative and greatly assisted in the pre-screening process.  I can only imagine how challenging it is to coordinate the close on the home we sold and the new home we purchased, and you did a fantastic job on both homes.  You were very careful during the contract and inspection phases to protect our interests and went above and beyond to make sure our contracts closed smoothly.  Aside from business, you provided so many other personal touches like keeping our young daughter busy while we walked through homes, and helping out when my car broke down after a house-hunting trip, and having lunch ready for me when you knew I wouldn`t have time to get something after work, and giving us such a thoughtful new home gift basket that included so many meaningful items.  Jazmine also really loved the little bear.  She named her Melania after you!  Thanks again for everything.  We love our new home.  The two of you make a fabulous team, and you are both people of great integrity.  I will gladly refer any prospective clients to you and feel free to use me as a reference."   Wilma Johnson


"We wanted to thank you once again for all your help and hard work in helping us find a home we love (we really do!).  Your expertise and professionalism were matched only by your warm and personable style."  Chris & Christa Lovato


"You guys did an awesome job with selling the house.  I appreciate all the extra effort and mileage you put in.  Thanks."  Felicia Williams


"The Magic Realtors surpassed our expectations.  They are very helpful and patient in finding the perfect home."  Tyrone Houston


"Best wishes to the greatest real estate agents in the U.S.   Thanks for everything."  Bill Black


"Melania was one of the best realtors I have ever worked with!"  C. R. Bollinger


"Melania and Jim are great agents and have become wonderful friends.   I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a home.  Their professionalism is bar none!"  Myra Fisher


"I think I had the best realtors on the planet!"  Christine & Ben Stokes


"Melania & Jim Saltarella were chosen to market the sale of my home because they have been the # 1 listing team in the Prudential Northwest Office for several years.  Their extensive marketing techniques were instrumental in helping secure a qualified buyer for my home in just one week on the market.  The Saltarellas' use of the internet, virtual tour, multiple property photos, informative color property brochure, and detailed property information booklets promoted my home to thousands of potential buyers.  Their keen attention to detail coupled with timely feedback & negotiating strength resulted in a strong contract and smooth transaction closing.  As their real estate broker and client-seller, I saw first-hand the quality of the services the Saltarellas give to each and every client.  They handled every detail keeping my best interests in the forefront at all times.  I am more than satisfied as a client-seller and very proud to have Melania & Jim as agents in my office.  You cannot find anyone better to represent you in the sale or purchase of real estate as these two dedicated real estate professionals."     Pat Summers



If you would like telephone numbers or email addresses of any of our clients (who allow us to provide them) to verify that these are real people who wrote very nice notes simply because they felt compelled upon experiencing our service rather than some phony marketing scheme, please email us at MagicREteam@gmail.com and request references.  Of course we have the actual cards and letters to show you if you`d like.  We have built our business on referrals, so every day we strive to prove that real estate agents are not all the same.  One of our primary goals is to ensure that we exceed our clients' expectations and earn referrals.  Keep those cards and letters coming!
