From our first introduction to Melissa Barnes and Tracy Bowie, through to the close of our escrow, they never stopped holding our hands. Their steadfast willingness and desire to meet "our" needs while keeping us in "our" comfort zone, was the perfect formula for our family during the process from search to actually buying the right home. My taste in a home varied from my wife's. I don't think that's uncommon. Tracy and Melissa were tasked to find middle ground for my wife and I. They listened. They did their homework and they found compromise. They successfully executed the complicated tasks behind the scenes, so when time to present to me and my family; all things were simple. These gals get it. Share what your needs are, and let them loose and do their thing! Peace and comfort is certainly around the corner for anyone who hires their talent. Thank you Melissa and Tracy for a wonderful experience.
DAVID AND KIM
Melissa has been our agent for the past 18 years. She has represented us in several transactions during this time. We continue to work with Melissa, and she has our loyalty and continued trust, because she is hard-working and knowledgeable. She has a keen eye, gives great advice and knows the Orange County market.
JIN AND RYAN O’GRADY
In a word: Dedicated. Melissa’s commitment, care and dedication in the sale of our home, from marketing, to showing’s completely surpassed our expectations. We quickly saw how other agents, as well as prospective buyers recognized and responded to Melissa’s integrity and professionalism, agents brought their best, prescreened clients to see our home and their clients were warmed by Melissa’s hospitality. Melissa protected our privacy and worked around our schedule, making the process seamless and easy for us. Melissa is a class act, capable, hard working, and is a pleasure to work with, we are so grateful to have had her representing us in the sale our home.
We met Missy and Tracy at an open house last July and it was truly a life-changing experience. Their genuine warmth, professionalism, and experience made Missy and Tracy our immediate choice for realtors. Relocating from the Bay Area was an enormous decision for us and they helped make it a smooth, enjoyable experience. Their ability to listen to your needs and wants and match those with the perfect home, in the best neighborhood, is unmatched. Both Tracy and Missy have a commitment to providing the best customer service--their expectations of themselves and those they work with are extremely high. My husband and I are so very happy with our new home and feel blessed to have worked with both of these extraordinary women.

Sara and I can't thank Melissa enough for all her hard work, dedication and the time she spent in representing us on the sale of our home, as well as the purchase of our new home. Melissa made it very easy for us to seamlessly sell one house and purchase another. She was truly a pleasure to have as our real estate agent. She was always available, responded to questions promptly and never left any questions unanswered. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is selling, or in the market to purchase a home. Melissa is an expert in her field, and we feel very fortunate to have worked with her as our Realtor.
SARA AND TOM D’ELIA
After just having moved from Australia to Newport Beach buying a property seemed like a daunting task. Thankfully Melissa and Tracy were the perfect duo to step in and work with me. They were responsive to every question and concern I had, explained in detail what I didn’t understand and acted with complete professionalism. They kept their focus, attention to detail and my needs at the forefront which gave me great peace of mind. Apart from their incredibly vast experience and knowledge, they both have such lovely personalities that have rendered long lasting friendship. There was never one moment of doubt that what ever was needed to be done they could and would make it happen. This power team is extremely patient, hard working and diligent. Nothing is too much for them and I loved having the opportunity to work with them both.
Melissa (Missy) has been a terrific find for us. Her knowledge and expertise of the market and her experience to know what kind of support was needed to market our home of 37 years and purchase a new home in another area was extremely effective. Along the way she encountered some issues complicated by the buyers lender but managed to keep every thing on track until all three families involved achieved our goals. We are very pleased.

Missy Barnes is a true professional! She has proven to us time and time again that she can find a needle in a haystack. Newport Beach vacation rentals are tough to come by and prices just keep going up but Missy seems to know just where to look and she doesn't leave any stones unturned. She has been able to find us just the right property every time and has proven to be a great negotiator even with very difficult sellers. She has also been wonderful in helping us sell some investment properties with contingencies that could have scared buyers away in Eastside Costa Mesa. She is great at what she does and is a joy to work with!
