Very sweet women. She was very helpful with the process of buying our house while my husband was out the country and I was living in Michigan. She kept us update on everything.
Words cannot describe how great Melissa is! She was very helpful and answered every question we had in a timely manner. Just when we thought we had no other options, Melissa never gave up! Her response was, “this is just another process to walk through”, and she never left our side throughout the process. Melissa has a very sweet personality and very knowledgeable with the area. We would highly recommend her and the staff at Woodland Realty.
Melissa and her husband are a super team to work with. They were able to find multiple homes that would have been perfect for our family and were extremely patient with us as we chose the perfect home. Highly recommend!!
Melissa was absolutely perfect. We are young couple moving to a city that we were unfamiliar with and she walked us through the entire process from beginning to end. Everything went smoothly and timely because of her work.
Extremely knowledgeable, responsive and professional. Melissa provided all of the information we needed to make one of the most important decisions of our lives. I would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a house.
I needed to sell my house quickly due to a job change and I was referred to Melissa. She was HIGHLY recommended and she completely lived up to all of my expectations! My house was under contract within the first week of being on the market! Thanks to Melissa’s staging advice and her expert marketing, I got everything I wanted and more out of the sale. She’s professional, hardworking and dedicated to each client. It was a pleasure working with her and I would definitely use her in the future! ~J Swadley
I would highly recommend Tracy and Melissa! They represented me in the purchase of my home. Melissa was very knowledgeable of the community, of all the real estate processes and she even made the process fun. Tracy is such an excellent negotiator and I feel they are an incredible team who I will always recommend to others! ~Nelda B
As first time homebuyers, we didn’t know where to start! Thankfully Tracy and Melissa “held our hand” through the entire process! ~K Dearman
Great working with Melissa and Tracy and the whole staff at Woodland Realty. They meet all our needs with professional work and information. Helped us go through the whole process of listing our house all the way through the closing with professional information and knowledge that makes them a leader in real estate sales. ~R Hill
It has always been a pleasure to work with Tracy and Melissa. They are so knowledgeable of the current real estate market and they understand the importance of marketing a property in the best way to attract qualified potential buyers. I would highly recommend working with them on any real estate transaction. ~B Jones
Melissa and Tracy were invaluable to us throughout our home buying adventure. They were always available to show us any property we requested; and they were FUN! When we found our house, they were ready with all the comps and research to assist us in the offer process. I am confident we make the right choice and we love our home! We have also made a couple of really good friends through the process. ~ J Bellamy
I highly recommend Tracy and Melissa! They worked very hard to find me the best home in my budget, and he even negotiated to get the price lower. I would definitely recommend them to anyone trying to sell or buy a home. ~G Vaughn
Melissa and Tracy Key did an incredible job for us! Unlike so many other Realtors who only seem to be chasing a commission or just pushing their own listings, these two sought out only the best properties to show us in our price range. We have purchased and sold many homes across the US so we were all too familiar with the process. Melissa Tracy are by far the best Realtors we have ever dealt with. Professional with extensive knowledge about the market, they are HIGHLY recommended! ~M Barton
The Woodland motto was so true: They truly DO work differently than other Realtors and how refreshing was that! Melissa was a delight to work with during the preview stage of the process and we were very discriminating out-of-state buyers. Tracy took over once the property was selected. He is an Expert Negotiator and we feel we saved thousands by selecting this knowledgeable and experienced team. ~B Gates
I finally found my dream Realtors! I’ve bought many houses over the years but have never been talked out of buying one until I met Tracy and Melissa. They were not concerned about their commission at all; they were just concerned about me and my investment. They strongly advised me not to make an offer on a home I thought would be suitable for me and wait for something new to hit the market. Within two weeks the perfect one hit the MLS and I am now living in a home that far surpassed the one I was willing to settle for thanks to Melissa and Tracy. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this professional team! ~J McWilliams
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THE KEYS!!!! AMAZING EXPERIENCE WORKING WITH BOTH MELISSA AND TRACY KEY! If and when we outgrow our first home we will be reaching out to them again! They both relieved the stress and worry out of our first time home buying experience and guided us every step of the way! Every questions was met with knowledge and expertise! Would highly recommend Melissa and Tracy Key to anyone who is looking for a new home! ~M Miller

In summation, we are very happy with the service you provided and look forward to possible future endeavors.
Mrs Melissa helped my husband and I purchase our first home. Although our process was long and strenuous, Mr and Mrs Key were very patient and always readily available. It was such a blessing to have such caring and sweet people helping us. We will be recommending the Key Team to all of our friends and family and plan to use them again in the future!!
I used Melissa to sell my home recently. She was highly recommended and I'm so glad I called her. My house was under contract within the first week of her listing it! The whole selling process was pleasant and stress free thanks to Melissa and her team. I would definitely use her again in the future.

Melissa is the type Realtor you hope your kids get to work with. Knowledgeable, hard worker, stays on top of market changes and works the cutting edge to show value in a home. She's a Pro!
Melissa was so great to work with. She really knew her stuff. I can't think of one question that she didn't have the answer to. She took so much pressure off of my wife and I because we were first time home buyers. She was awesome!!!!

What can I say, Melissa was wonderful. Not only did she know the city and surrounding area like the back of her hand she seemed to know a short cut to every listing. After the first day she seemed to know exactly what my wife and I was looking for. The second day she showed us three properties. Any would have been fine. Our dream home was the second one. Transfers are always hard. Melissa sure made this one easier.
I have worked with Melissa on several deals. She also helped my daughter find a home. She is very efficient and personable. She has a happy, upbeat personality and makes the experience FUN!
My fiancé and I LOVE Melissa!! We had absolutely no idea what we were doing when we started looking at houses and she made the process so easy!! She handled everything…all we had to do was sign. I knew the whole time she wasn’t trying to sale me a house like other realtors. There was no doubt she wanted to find the perfect house for us and that was evident from the beginning. She was honest about what she would do and not do and I trusted her completely! I gained a sweet new friend when I called Melissa Key and she’ll be the only call I make next time!
Melissa is a joy to work with. She recently assisted us in the search and purchase of our new home. She was always available to view properties we requested or she thought might meet our criteria. When we found our home, her research was invaluable in presenting an offer. Throughout the negotiation process, she was always a much needed voice of calm and reason. We love our new home and neighborhood. It was everything we set out to find thanks to Melissa’s help.
I would highly recommend Melissa! She represented me in the purchase of my home. Melissa was very knowledgeable of the community, of all the real estate processes and forms, and was always available to show homes and answer questions. I enjoyed working with Melissa – she made the process fun and did not miss one step in the process! Her professionalism, knowledge, attention to detail and warm personality are all the traits that make a successful real estate professional and why I will recommend Melissa to others.
Melissa worked to sell my home. She didn't just put out a sign and wait for it to sell itself. She was very devoted, easy to contact, and a source for all things I needed. I highly recommend her and her staff.
A few short years ago Melissa sold a house for me in the Hattiesburg area. I was so impressed with her professionalism and tireless efforts that when I decided to move back she was the first person I thought of to handle my real estate needs. Not only did she and her staff work with me long distance but also with my family locally to be sure everything worked to everyone's satisfaction. If I should ever decide to move again, you can be sure Melissa Key will be my agent. 2/6/2017
We are very pleased with the Key Team. Melissa was knowledgeable and professional. She addressed all our questions and concerns and provided relevant information for our decision making process, as well as tips that we otherwise would not have thought to consider. She advocated for us with the seller when the buying process became more complex. We were able to complete many steps and provide required signatures online which added to the ease and convenience of working with her. The transaction went smoothly from start to finish. 2/3/2017
