Superstar Sotheby’s Real Estate Agents in MontrealWhen we first decided to contact Sotheby’s Québec to handle the sale of our family property on Lac Archambault in St Donat we were worried they might not want to list it: we knew our property wouldn’t be an easy sell. Even though it has a beautiful and unique red pine forest, with close to 500 feet of rocky waterfront, and is one of the last large properties on the lake, it isn't the typically sought after postage size lot with easy beach access with a ready-made four season chalet. Our cottage is a charming but small three-season teardown. No, we knew our property would be a tough listing for any real estate agent, and it would take a special buyer with a love of the land and vision.
And it would take a special real estate agent with tenacity and vision as well. Fortunately at Sotheby’s Québec we found not one but two such agents, Melanie Clarke and Michel Davidson, a team that specializes in higher end properties in the Laurentian and the Lanaudière region. And we can’t thank them enough: their skill, patience, expertise, and willingness to go way beyond the call of regular duty at every step of the way of what proved to be a difficult sale to navigate, more difficult than any of us could have imagined, made selling our family property in the end a reality. Neither my sister, nor my sister-in-law, nor I could imagine anyone else being more wonderful to deal with. Both Melanie and Michel addressed the numerous problems that popped up with patience, persistence and aplomb. Their guidance and assistance was invaluable. They are both consummate professionals and we can’t recommend them highly enough. Thanks to Melanie and Michel and Sotheby’s our property did find the special buyer it was waiting for. Merci Melanie et Michel!Pierre Coupey
Melanie is an excellent broker. She is an intuitive, generous person who really cares about her clients.“Melanie is an excellent broker. She is an intuitive, generous person who really cares about her clients. For my husband and me, she was the perfect person to help us find our dream home. Originally, my husband and I had differences of opinion in what we wanted, but she listened to both of us and offered us listings that allowed us to discuss and converge on a common vision. When I told her that I had fallen in love with a specific lake, she made sure to call me first when a house became available. The house she found for us is a dream come true. She was patient, understanding, and very intuitive. She made the whole experience extremely easy and comfortable. I am happy to give Melanie my highest recommendation!”Joanna Berzowska

We will always be grateful to Melanie for her support and commitment to help us achieve our goals“When you live 3,000 miles away from the house you are trying to sell it is crucial that you have an agent that you can trust and will work hard to achieve a sale. Melanie delivered on both these counts. Throughout the time she acted for us, Melanie made herself available at any time to keep us informed and to discuss what our next steps should be. She was totally honest in her views which I very much appreciated. On a personal as well as professional level we will always be grateful to Melanie for her support and commitment to help us achieve our goals.”Steve and Karen Long
I truly believe anyone who is fortunate enough to meet and contract with Melanie Clarke will be 100% pleased“It is my utmost pleasure to tell you about my experience when working with MELANIE CLARKE.I heard “from a neighbor” that a young woman by the name of Melanie Clarke sold her home and they were very happy with this agent. I made an appt. to meet Melanie and it was “immediately a good connection”.
From the first day I met Melanie till the day we signed for the sale of my home at a lake in the Laurentians, Melanie was a true professional – I was trying very hard to be strong as my husband had just passed away and I didn’t want the house anymore without him. Melanie was kind and considerate and fortunately sold my home (at a lake in the winter) within four months. I think (if memory serves me correctly) my home was the only lakefront property to sell that yr in that area.
I truly believe anyone who is fortunate enough to meet and contract with Melanie Clarke will be 100% pleased.”Jo Anne Kelly Rudy
Melanie immediately got the feel for what our needs were and found us the perfect home and right in time for the holidays!“I was looking for a property in the Laurentians for quite a while but I never seemed to find the right home for our family. Luckily, I found Melanie by following up on one of her listings. Although that first home was not the right fit for us, Melanie immediately got the feel for what our needs were and found us the perfect home and right in time for the holidays! This wasn’t our first time buying property and the next time we do, we’ll be going right back to Melanie. I suggest you do the same!”Jason Kastner

She knew immediately what we were like as people, what we were after in a property, and had an intuitive understanding of our concerns in the purchase“We had the experience of working with Melanie Clarke in the purchase of what has turned out to be the home we always dreamed of having outside of the city. We met Melanie when we were casually browsing homes, seeing what was out there in this market, something completely unknown to us. She knew immediately what we were like as people, what we were after in a property, and had an intuitive understanding of our concerns in the purchase, our wants in looking for a space for us to enjoy outside of the hustle and bustle of our city lives.
We gravitated to her immediately and asked her to help us look for a property – which she helped us find almost immediately. She seemed energized by the challenge, and was focused and enthusiastic, even as the nitty gritty of the details of the eventual purchase would have likely started to wear us out. The whole experience seemed to fly by, and before we knew it, we were sitting in our new home.
We’re sitting in there right now!
Thanks, Melanie!”Jen and Jeremy
She was professional, well informed and quickly grasped what we were looking forWe had the pleasure of meeting Melanie Clarke this spring, when we visited one of her listings. She was professional, well informed and quickly grasped what we were looking for. Following that visit, we engaged Melanie to help us find the perfect chalet for us and she did. She is an excellent listener, she responds quickly, either from her vast knowledge of the Laurentians or from research she would conduct to ensure that we were provided with accurate information. She was always patient and never pushy, even when we were being difficult and, following a lot of visits we found exactly what we were looking for. She guided us expertly through the negotiation/purchase process and was always on our side. If you are looking for an agent to look out for your interests, Melanie is the person for you!Donald Olds

We were impressed by the sensitivity she showed as we went about the very emotional process of selling a property which had been in the family since 1930.Our cottage in the Laurentians was recently sold.

With her patience, guidance, and vast knowledge of the surrounding areas of the Laurentians, she guided us to the perfect place which we can now call our own.We recently purchased a country house in the Laurentians after a lengthy search to find the perfect setting and house for our family. After meeting Melanie early in the process, we knew right away that she was the right real estate broker for us.
We can’t speak highly enough of our experience with Melanie. Over the course of about a year, she arranged many visits and repeat visits at our convenience, even on short notice. With her patience, guidance, and vast knowledge of the surrounding areas of the Laurentians, she guided us to the perfect place which we can now call our own.
We enjoyed her smile and great disposition and she was always a pleasure to work with. She was very hands on (and even carefully climbed over fences and walked in the deep snow while pregnant at the time) to show us all the details of the homes we were visiting.
Melanie never pressured us to make an offer, and didn’t get impatient as we went through all the pros and cons of each home that we visited. It was important to her that we would fall in love with the place we would eventually buy.
When we were finally ready to make an offer on a home we loved, she took care of everything flawlessly, and made the whole experience stress-free. We can’t thank her enough for all the effort it took to make our dream a reality.
We highly recommend Melanie for anyone looking to buy or sell a home! You will definitely be completely happy with her service.Janie and Paul Fischlin
