Kudos to…



I found the most beautiful 5 acre piece of property in Reddick, Florida with the help of Melissa Townsend. In many years of many real estate deals, have never come across an agent quite like Melissa. She went above and beyond all professional expectations. Always in contact (but never intrusive!) Melissa set up Geo Tech drilling, survey, contacted multiple builders for new house plans, helped place cones for ideal building locations, even talked with previous owners about keeping their horses on the property and arranged mowing services. Amazing. 

Melissa met me every time I came up (from Collier County), even after the sale. It was a seamlessly smooth closing from a distance. She was the icing on the cake, the creme de la creme!

Melissa Townsend embodies the first 4 words in the name of the realty company she works with, "It's All About You...Real Estate" and (by her words and actions) uses those words as a business philosophy. I was tasked with selling a family home from 40 miles away and she helped to make the process so much easier. Every time I had a question or needed help (such as finding a new yard guy or someone to do a last minute cleanup) she responded very quickly, often times within minutes.

We had multiple verbal offers the very first day the house went on the market and within the first few days we had a signed contract and several signed backup contracts. Many realtors don't want to take backup offers but Melissa went to the time and trouble to do so. Consequently, when the first contract "went south" we had another waiting and closed that one within 2 weeks.

Melissa goes above and beyond for her clients. We were making a big move from the Northeast to FL and Melissa was our lifeline. She took the time to get to know us, what we were looking for, and offered sage advice and perspective on the area and what would meet our needs - and wants! She fielded everything for us locally and provided excellent recommendations for services in the area. We could not have found our perfect home without her. I can’t recommend working with Melissa enough!

Both my husband, Hal, and I thank Melissa for her professional guidance through the sale of our home. From the pricing of the home to the closing, she did an excellent job. Melissa also helped us get the home ready to show and did a very professional photo presentation as well as overseeing all the showings. Her friendly and attentive manner all the way to closing made this whole experience worry free. Thank you Melissa!

I couldn't recommend Melissa and It's All About You Real Estate more. From day 1 she made it feel like what my wife and I wanted mattered the most. In this current, crazy market I cannot imagine trusting anyone else to get into our house. Melissa is caring, thorough, and works tirelessly to find you the house you want.

I've known Melissa in a professional capacity for a number of years, so when my husband and I were looking to purchase an investment property, she was an easy choice. She was an amazing fit for us. After assisting with finding the right property, she was immediately onboard helping with negotiations and contracts, she assisted with making sure we found an inspection company as well as an electrician. She ensured that our desired closing date was met. If an opportunity presents itself, we will absolutely entrust our future investments in the very capable hands of Melissa!

Melissa was fantastic! She came out and checked on the property the day after the hurricane and was very professional and responsive. We were out of town sellers so this assistance and communication was appreciated. She is a great agent!

We could not have chosen a better realtor! Being new to Florida, Melissa’s knowledge about Ocala and the area were invaluable to us. Besides sharing her knowledge of the housing market, she was a great resource for what Ocala has to offer from restaurants to the arts and more. She was engaged in our search from the first time we met her. Before we came from Illinois to tour houses, she watched and sent us new listings she felt met our needs. She really listened and picked up on what we were looking for in a home. She was on top of everything from the beginning through our closing. Her friendly personality made the whole process so enjoyable. We highly recommend Melissa!

We were referred to It's All About You by a trusted community member. Melissa came to our rescue, helping us secure a home in just a few days. Her professional expertise was instrumental in the timing of today's real estate climate. Thanks, Melissa!

Fabiola is the consummate professional. I believe her to be the best Realtor I have ever met. I absolutely adore her. Her work ethic is unparalleled and she truly does care about her clients.

In one of the most difficult markets, she is still capable of finding properties that meet the criteria of her clients. Not merely "here's a house" but rather, "this house will meet your needs...I have previewed it and you will love it"... and I did.

If you need a realtor in her service area, do yourself a favor and contact her. You will not regret it. She is amazing in every sense of the word.

Fabiola is the absolute best!! She is incredibly responsive to all calls and text messages, and worked miracles to make my dream home become a reality.  I absolutely recommend Fabiola without hesitation for any real estate needs!

Tracy Armstrong

Fabiola was so amazing to work with. She listened to our needs, our wants, and was available whenever we asked about a property, even "after hours".  She even drove an hour north to view houses for us!

We can't even begin to thank her enough in helping us find our first home, and we'd highly recommend her to ANYONE looking for land, a starter home, and more!

Nichole Barrett

I feel privileged to have Fabiola working for our brokerage. Fabiola has embraced our organization's culture and ensures that her customers' needs are always met. Her diligence and determination continually secures properties for her buyers in a very challenging and fast-paced market.

Rich was the ultimate professional and a pleasure to work with.  At the time of my purchase, I was a new member to the community and he went above and beyond to help me not only identify the right house that met all of my criteria, but also researched travel times to work including challenges of entering and exiting my subdivision during busy times of the day.

Richard Schleicher worked tirelessly to help us find our new home in Ocala.  Rich was informative about the area and sensitive to our home desires.  He was integral in making the home buying process navigable.  Once we purchased our home, Rich referred us to reliable craftspersons and small businesses who helped us implement home repairs and updates.  We highly recommend Richard Schleicher and It’s All About You…Real Estate…Richard Schleicher is true to his business name!

I just want to give a shout out for Rich Schleicher.  He was our agent for the sale of our house in Ocala, and it couldn’t have gone better.  I was traveling abroad at the time we were moving into closing and Rich handled everything beautifully.  The e-docs were easy and I trusted Rich implicitly to follow up and get the deal done.  If you are looking for a pleasant and honest agent of integrity – look no further.

Richard Boyum

Having known Rich for over ten years, I am pleased to share that he is my exclusive realtor!  Rich is extremely professional and goes above and beyond in the relocation efforts for those moving into the Ocala area.  He acts as my partner in assisting our new employees and their families with their needs.  I highly recommend Rich to assist you in your recruitment and relocation efforts.
