Almost unbelievable good experience here. She and her team were with us every step of the way from initial discussions on the kind of property we were looking for all the way through closing. She and her team were always available to us at a moments notice. Melanie was supportive during the entire process giving support and honest guidance even on the occasion when we were potentially making some missteps. It is clear to me why she is the top realtor in this area. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone including friends or family
Melanie is one of the best realtors we have ever worked with. She knows the area and found us exactly what our family needed. I highly recommend Melanie Fink and Associates.
Our experience has been text-book perfect. There is no area in the course of this process that we could really fault. What is more than noteworthy is the frequent occasion that Melanie has operated way outside the norm. It is overwhelmingly encouraging to see that the level of service exists in a world that has lost its desire to excel. Thanks Melanie.
I cannot say enough good things about Melanie. God put her in my life for this time. Not only did she sell my home of 30 years but she guided me and looked out for me and has become a friend. She is the realtor that I am buying my second home from also. I have recommended her to so many people and will continue to do so. It is very rare to find a realtor who looks out for the seller and the buyer but I trust her COMPLETELY! Can't recommend her highly enough!
Melanie was involved from start to finish, helped with questions, and I couldn't be more pleased. Melanie knows the local contacts to get things done such as builders, and contractors. Melanie always followed up with any issues and got them resolved. Thanks!
Melanie Fink is very knowledge about the area and the property. She was always available and ready to do what had to be done. Selling the property was painless.
Melanie is definitely tuned in to her clients' priorities, as she works to- gether with them to sell their home. She listens, and she communicates extremely well ! She has an eye for detail, which is invaluable when her clients prepare their home for showing. As we walked from room to room of our well kept home with her, she spotted many "little things" that potentially might thwart a prospective buyer's interest ! She knows the field of finance and gives sound advice. We feel certain that Melanie enabled us to acquire top dollar for our lovely home. She is charming. She is a winner, and she will win for YOU !
Melanie is a true professional and know the Lake Keowee Market like the back of her hand. She is also a great referral source for whatever you need on the housing front. She recommended a great selection of builders, mortgage brokers and lawyers for closing on the property we purchased. If you are searching for a property/home on Lake Keowee or in the surrounding area Melanie is the one and only choice!
Melanie helped my wife and I successfully navigate the purchase of a new home and the sale of our existing home. We find Melanie to be personable, knowledgable and realistic. She kept us fully informed. She anticipated the inevitable issues that can arise during the process and was proactive in resolving them. We would recommend Melanie 100%.
We were looking at houses and different areas of upstate South Carolina in 2017, and she drove us around, and gave us information about South Carolina and the area. In 2018, we decided to look for a vacant lot to build on in the future, and she, upon short notice, came up with several listings for us to review and then went out with us to look at and discuss a lot that we were interested in, and discussed various aspects of building. She has always responded to us quickly and been very patient when we weren't sure how we wanted to proceed.
Melanie is patient, honest, and extemely easy to work with! We recommend her to anyone who is looking for a quality experience. I have worked with her as both a seller and a buyer, and both times she made the process as easy as possible. Because of her, we have found a home we love!
I have worked with many realtors over the years and can honestly say Melanie Fink is by far the best I have ever worked with. She is excellent in all of the categories listed above. Finding a home in an unfamiliar area is usually a stressful process, Melanie’s responsiveness dedication, and knowledge of the area, dealing with attorneys, bankers, etc. is far above excellent!!!
In May we engaged Melanie to sell our waterfront home on Lake Keowee. She was very successful.Her professionalism, personality, approach and follow through were stellar. She was able to offer suggestions about small changes to our decorating and focused on the key prime selling points to attract potential buyers. Her advertising (YouTube video, professional grade photography, property description and highlights were first class). Her attention to detail, our needs and desired outcome were the focal point for all of her actions. She has the highest integrity and is always customer focused as well as a genuine pleasure to work with. She communicated clearly and with purpose all aspects as we move through contract and closing. We have sold through many realtors in our years of homeownership as we have moved around the country and verseas with my job and she is by FAR the best we has experienced. I can’t recommend anyone with more confidence in her abilities in every aspect of your househunting or selling of property in the Lake Keowee area.
Melanie not only was successful in selling our home but she also helped us find the perfect home for us to move into. She is an organized, detailed, and hard working advocate for her clients. If you are buying or selling a home she is the best!
Knowledgeable, personable, and fully dedicated to making the sale happen in the shortest possible time frame. Melanie kept us updated on a frequent basis as to the marketability of the home, and where the price level should be to improve our sale opportunities.
A great experience. Very professional with great follow thru. Selling from out of town so kept on top of things for us. Very responsive and personable.
Upon recommendations, we used Melanie Fink, Real Estate Agentto help us find a Lake Keowee home and were not disappointed. She helped make our lake home buying/purchase/closing experience a smooth one.
My wife and I started looking for a home near Seneca, SC on Lake Keowee in April, 1917. We were from out of state, and we were looking to relocate to this area to be near family. Melanie met with us and quickly learned our home requirements and had great knowledge of the area. She was very kind and helped us revise our expectations based on the market. We purchased a home in June 2018. She has always responded to us in a timely manner and with courtesy both before and after the sale. We would highly recommend Melanie to other prospective buyers.
Melanie worked very hard to meet our unique needs. She did a great job finding options but then allowing us to make a decision that was right for us. We are very happy with our new home!
We have had Melanie as a buying and a selling agent and she does a great job. She knows Lake Keowee and the surrounding area very well. Melanie is always accessible and responds quickly to any questions or concerns. We would highly recommend using Melanie, both as a listing agent or as someone who will help you find your dream lake home.
Working With Melanie Fink was great! She took time to understand our needs and answer our questions and walk us through the process. The purchase of our new home was reasonable painless and we were happy with process.
Pictures of my home were beautiful and looked special thanks to time they spent rearranging and lighting. Melanie and associates were always there with info you needed before you needed it. Always friendly and informativ. My house sold in 3 days because it was priced right
Melanie is the best! She knew we were busy with our business and always made herself available any time and on weekend to see properties. She looked out for our best interest and made the closing process a breeze. She stayed involved right to the closing. I recommend her to our friends.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Melanie. She was extremely knowledgeable of the area, professional, and fun to work with. She's the best! Highly recommended!
We have sold homes and relocated seven times. Melanie provided us with the best experience of all. It's always a pleasure to work with people who have a gift for what they do and real estate is Melanie's. Her marketing and finance background back-up that talent.She is number one because she works hard at it. Melanie knows this market and priced our property well. She ensured the photography highlighted the very best of our home and provided advice and help with staging. Her technology made scheduling showings and inspections as painless as possible. She negotiated the best possible price with terms and specifics that addressed our particular needs. We sold within a couple weeks and closed quickly. Melanie is respected in the community and service providers respond to any inspection/repair requests immediately. She found temporary housing in case we needed it at a time when everything in the area was booked. Melanie took care of every single detail she could and for the few we personally had to execute, she reminded us and provided any assistance needed. We know we weren't a special case, because she was recommended to us by three of our friends who had the same experience. I cannot imagine why anyone would use anyone else.
Melanie was our realtor in the purchase of a home. She is very thorough and detail oriented. She listens to the clients and works to deliver properties that meet the criteria. She made the buying experience easy and a pleasure. Highly recommended!
Melanie came recommended by a friend and we will now be the ones recommending her to others!! She listened to what we were saying, gave us good honest feedback and didn't waste our time trying to steer us in other directions. As a matter of fact she took what we were looking for, narrowed it down, and we bought one of the first homes we went through. We could not be happier, and we view Melanie more as a friend than a realtor. We have bought and sold many houses and this by far was one of our best experiences.
Melanie is very thorough and knowledgeable. Easiest real estate transaction I have had. She was also very helpful after the sale getting information and contacts for the area. Highly recommended.
Our experience of buying a home with Melanie was so positive. Her patience, responsiveness and thorough understanding of the process made buying our new home a pleasant experience. She is both knowledgeable and thoughtful-a winning combination in a real estate professional. If you are looking for a realtor in the upstate area, look no further!

Melanie and her team were very professional and extremely helpful. Melanie worked closely with us throughout the entire home buying process. Any questions, concerns or requests we had were always responded to quickly and thoroughly. I would highly recommend Melanie Fink to anyone interested in looking to buy a home in the Lake Keowee, SC area. We had a wonderful experience working with Melanie and her team.
I am pleasantly surprised with how quickly the lot sold. It was on the market a few weeks before I got an offer. The whole process was an easy and relatively easy affair!
I would highly recommend Melanie Fink to sell or help purchasing a home. She is knowledgeable with the Lake Keowee area and offered us her expertise during our sale. She accurately helped price our home so that the sale was timely. Melanie went above and beyond with helping us through the transaction making it an easy transition. I would recommend Melanie and her team without any reservation.
Excellent agent!! She handled it all with high professionalism, highly recommend! She gave advice on the listing price using local market knowledge, home sold in two weeks after listing contract, one week after media exposure.
Working with Melanie was fantastic. She quickly understood what type of place we were looking for and when something came available, she contacted us right away and we were able to close quickly. She also was very responsive to all the questions that we had throughout this process and was extremely knowledgeable about the area. I highly recommend anyone working with Melanie.
Melanie and her team we’re phenomenal! Selling a home in SC from Texas is not an easy feet. Melanie and Jody were so wonderful to work with and made the process fun. Not to mention, we had 3 offers after a week on the market and closed in 30 days. I would recommend this team to anyone who wants to have a seamless process selling their home.
Melanie really helped us through the whole process in a very consultative approach due to her real estate expertise and knowledge. That approach was appreciated through two sides of the transaction for us. Selling and buying. Thanks for the great work.
We highly recommend Melanie Fink because she is a true professional in real estate. Melanie represented us in selling a lake cottage and we were extremely satisfied with her expertise and market knowledge throughout the selling process. Melanie sold our property before it had a chance to be listed!
Melanie Fink is by far the best real estate agent I have every worked with. Her staff is fantastic. Very professional and detail oriented. I hired her to find a home in Keowee Key. Turns out I bought a house she had listed. She acted in a dual agent capacity and did a fantastic job. I would highly recommend her to anybody listing or looking to buy a house.
Buying a home from out of state can be difficult, Melanie made it simple with constant contact and smooth handling of the inevitable bumps along the way. Highly recommended.
We have been looking to move to Lake Keowee from the South Carolina Lowcountry for some time but needed help in choosing the right neighborhood and lot. We chose Melanie solely from online ratings and we struck gold. Melanie has a tremendous understanding of the “the Lake” and was able to use our preferences to quickly hone in on those areas that met our needs but also where we would feel most comfortable. What really set her apart for us out-of-towners was her knowledge of the “other” aspects of our potential purchase at Keowee – suitability of lots for building, knowledge of covenants/restrictions/architectural requirements in each neighborhood, utility providers and technical nuances like septic permitting/inspections. Such due diligence information is a must for a sound decision but isn’t always easy to find, especially when you’re living four hours away. Melanie is a longtime Lake resident and readily shares a wealth of information about cultural and social aspects of the area while providing helpful leads in the local finance and construction industry. Her office manager Jody is a great compliment to Melanie and provides exceptional support also; these two took care of every detail and communicated constantly with us. The search and purchase process was a complete success thanks to Melanie.
