Melissa was very helpful throughout our year long journey in finding the perfect house. She was available
whenever we needed her and found out anything we asked her about. I would strongly recommend her to
anyone I know.

Melissa made finding our dream house simple and fun! We’re so happy with our new home!
Melissa was our realtor from Wenzel Select Properties. She was very sweet, professional, and very accommodating. She showed us a great deal of properties that matched our desires for a new home. She was quick to help with any issues that arose. She did her research and was able to answer all of our questions readily. Also, she spent over 4 hours with us during our inspection! Thanks to her help we are living in a beautiful home. I would recommend Wenzel Select Properties to anyone who is looking for a fast track to their next home.

Melissa Nelson was beyond amazing with not only finding us the perfect home but throughout the whole process and beyond. It took over two years to find the right home for us, not once did Melissa ever rush us or make us feel like a burden. Melissa stuck with us through many houses till we found the one we wanted to make our home. As first time home buyers we had many questions and had no clue how the home buying process went, Melissa and the rest of the crew helped us every step of the way. Melissa is still answering questions I have even after closing on our home. Melissa was more than dedicated and helpful with the home buying process and there’s nobody else I would have rather done it with. Melissa and the rest of the staff at Wenzel Select Properties are highly recommended with your future home buying/selling endeavors.
I would recommend Melissa Nelson with Wenzel Select Properties to anyone and everyone! She is professional, motivated, consistent, and thorough! On top of that, she is positive, friendly, and funny!
I contacted Melissa to help me find a house to rent. I needed to find a home for my children, self, and husband. I had a ton of questions and concerns. I also had specific criteria that I needed to find in a home, neighborhood, and school district. Melissa was quick to respond and help answer all of my questions. We looked at many, many rental properties. During the process, I contacted Melissa often to ask questions or to add another property to the viewing list. Melissa promptly responded to me, set up viewing times, and organized our search. She really worked hard to help me find what I was looking for. We found the right house in the right neighborhood. My family and I are very happy! Thank you, Melissa! I could not have done it without you!
We worked with Melissa to find our rental home this past fall. Not only was she extremely patient but she was very accommodating in her schedule as well. We have both cats and dogs as well as certain criteria and locations that we were looking for which did not make the search that easy but Melissa was very helpful and was able to find the perfect place for us. With some realtors if you are looking just for a rental vs. purchasing a home they can give a little less effort and may not be as accommodating but that was never the case with Melissa. When the time comes for us to purchase a home we will certainly reach out to Wenzel Select Properties.

It has been great working with Melissa Nelson from Wenzel Select Properties in buying our home. If you want reliable and hardworking then you will not be disappointed. Not only is she smart and knows all you need to know about buying a home, she is also honest and truly cares that you buy a home that is everything you want. We are 100% sure we have found our “forever home” with the help of Melissa. If we ever needed to move again, for whatever reason, we know who to go to. Thank you Melissa!
