I must share our story with those who are reading it to truly understand how dedicated and professional Melinda is.

We have looked for our dream home for over 8 months, That is, until our path crossed with Melinda's. That wonderful day, Our phone conversation was all about Us explaining in detail on what kind of home we were hoping to find, How important the location is to us...the property size and being private along the Elizabeth river if possible. Everything she explained to us on what she was going to do in sending us homes to look at thru email or text or both, Happened instantly and kept happening each day. On a Friday evening" 8 days from our first conversation" at 8.30 pm I got a text, Hey, This home just hit the market. Wow, We looked at it, Loved it and she had already schedule an appointment for us to look at it the next day, Saturday at 4pm...Submitted an offer that evening. Our saving Grace here is how Melinda acted so quickly, put us where we were the very first people to look at this home. After we submitted the offer, she knew many people were going to be looking at this home. She advise us to be proactive in making some changes in our offer prior to the seller receiving all of the other offers. Again, Her expertise was right on. Her dedication goes beyond finding your dream home, for once we were told the home was ours, she stays with you all the way to closing.

The decision to sell came at a very complicated time in my life.

From the onset, Robin was the consummate professional. She had the knowledge and steadiness to navigate me through this major transaction from the time she agreed to market my home. She kept me well informed every step of the way, presenting options, and keeping me from getting overwhelmed. I am so grateful I was referred to her and now looking back, would not change a thing if I had to do it again.

Olita Eaton-Place

Debbie was wonderful to work with!

I originally listed my home in September and received several solid offers within a couple of days. However, due to unforeseen personal circumstances, I had to remove the listing and delay the sale of my home. Debbie was very understanding, patient and maintained the same level of concern and professionalism. Throughout the delay, she reached out often to see how things were going and to offer encouragement. The house re-listed on December 8 and in less than 24 hours several offers were made. Within a couple of days I signed a contract. Debbie walked me through every step of the selling process. She explained things in a way I could easily understand, made everything simple to navigate, kept me updated on progress and was always available to answer any questions. I absolutely enjoyed working with her and highly recommend her!

How to begin!

We have been looking for a condo for about 2 years. Melinda was faithful in sending me information almost daily to help in that journey. When our house sold we had to find something quick, Melinda gave so very much of her time to make that happen. She was always quick to answer any question, if she did not know the answer, she would tell you so and find the answer. I never sent a text, email or phone call that was not answered right away. The main quality I found in Melinda as a Real Estate Agent was her patience, she made us feel we were the most important clients she had everyday. She also followed through will all steps from looking to closing. If we ever need another Real Estate Agent you can be assured it will be Melinda Swager.

Gary and Wanda Cullison

We moved to Virginia from out of state and wanted an agent who understood the great bridge/hickory area/schools etc, so we chose Robin!

Tommy and Shannon Lassiter

Robin has always been wonderful to work with.

I first heard about her because my brother and father worked with her to sell their homes and she helped me buy mine.

After letting her know which ones we would like to see, she set up a schedule of all 8 houses for that Saturday! She gave us her feedback without us feeling pressured to take her opinion when looking at houses. After putting an offer on a house, she was very quick in answering all our questions either by phone, email or text. We would recommend Dever for anyone who is looking in the Virginia or North Carolina area. Thank you Dever!!!

Amy and Brandon Schoonover (Client)

Robin was the right Realtor to hire when it seems like everyone and their brother is an agent these days.

She is highly organized, professional, courteous, and responds quickly to text and emails (and I had many!). Home selling is never straightforward and she always had good advice and a battle plan in her back-pocket when the bumps came. The NextHome systems she uses are modern and easy to use on your phone, which it made it easier for me to sign and approve things away from my computer. Her advertising was spot-on and her pictures and video of the house were beautiful. Robin has the experience I needed to sell a niche home in a city that generally gets a bad wrap - and it sold for full asking price! I was really happy to have her in my corner to get through this process.

Robin Altice

It was a pleasure to work with Robin.

....was able to help us sell our home in less than a week of listing. She was extremely responsive to all of our questions and helped us feel well informed throughout the selling process.

Melinda was awesome!

I couldn’t have asked for a better agent. She is definitely a rider.

I would definitely be referring others to her without a doubt. Thank you Melinda, you rock!

When we received orders and knew we would be needing to looking for a home in a state that neither of us had ever been to, Melinda went the extra mile!

Sol and Pat Kellihan

Debbie was so wonderful to work with and I always felt like it was always a team effort!

In the beginning she provided lots of data and past histories for pricing the house but I never felt fact we randomly came up with almost the same selling price. Along the way there were several bumps in the road from small, little things but Debbie remained always the consummate professional and was my voice of reason and my go to for win-win situations. We had an offer in 2 days but lost the offer for unforeseen reasons. Debbie remained calm and reassured me we would have another offer in no time. Sure enough, we had 2 offers the week it went back on the market. I can not say enough great things about Debbie but I can say with clarity and great confidence that she is a true treasure and a gem to work with and I hope I am able to send her as much business as possible. I highly recommend working with this talented, fun and energetic Real Estate Professional.

It was a long distance move and she went above and beyond to make it happen.

We were in the process of moving cross country due to my husband being relocated with the military.

We wanted to try to find a rental home before arriving to make the transition a little easier. We were put into contact with Melinda and she was extremely helpful in answering my questions, showing us properties we were interested in, etc. We would definitely use her services again, as well as recommended her to anyone looking for home to buy or rent.

She will work very hard to sell your home or buy. She always returns calls ,texts,or email quickly.

I enjoyed and appreciated working with realtor, Robin Gauthier.

She was knowledgeable about the market and the process. Robin gave a fair assessment of my property and quickly listed on the major sites with attractive photos. Each time I had questions, she responded quickly and thoroughly. Robin was proactive by holding an open house and actively finding a buyer. Once the contract was signed the process was smooth and timely. The closing occurred on time and without any problems. I would highly recommend Robin as an agent.

I had the opportunity to work with Melinda back in June.

I'm a first time home buyer and I expressed my needs and she heard everything i said. She is very knowledgable and knows how to request things from the seller to please the buyer. She is not pushy for a sale, she's very patient and loves her shows! When i look for my next forever home, i'm definitely reaching out to Melinda to assist in my journey. Thanks again Melinda, you are the best

Evelyn Chadwick (IT Manager)

Erika is AWESOME!

!! I have to say she is the Best of the Best.

Betty Spady

When we first met Chandu, he explained that his job is more service than sales.

He proved that time and again with his thorough knowledge of home construction and the local market. Every time we viewed a new property Chandu would perform a methodical inspection, looking for signs of problems and commenting on the quality of construction, finish, appliances, etc. In the end we found the property that was perfect for us and are loving it so far. Thank you for everything Chandu!!

Kinjal Singh

Melinda is an outstanding agent!

!! She made herself available at all times and never made me feel like I was a bother. She ensured every one of my needs, desires and concerns were met. I would not recommend anyone else in the real estate world! You would be disappointed if you went somewhere else. You’d be missing out on real estate agent with amazing talent, superb communication skills like no one else has and an additional family member because that’s how wonderful she is! You will not regret Melinda Swager as your real estate agent!

Kelly Thomas (Office Manger)

Erika did an excellent job for me.

Linda miller (Retired )

I highly recommend Robin and her staff at NextHome in Chesapeake Va.

for the sale of your property or the purchase of your future property. Robin handled our entire transaction with extreme professionalism, while being easily accessible at any time. She was always open for suggestions, which helps ease your mind during this major endeavor, while making you feel as if you had a partner, not just an agent. Robin created one of the most impressive 3D designs of my home, that I have ever seen and I am sure that it was a major factor in receiving multiple contracts and a speedy closing. Robin, I thank you and your staff at NextHome, for helping us through this transaction!

theresa riggs (Group Exercise Instructor)

Can't say enough GREAT things about Melinda.

She is the BEST REALTOR EVER. She was very patient with my husband and I who were very unsure about what we wanted in the beginning. We knew we needed to move to be close to the grand baby. She was very knowledgeable about the area we wanted to live in. Her professionalism, expertise, and due diligence enabled us to find our next FOREVER HOME. We can't thank her enough for everything she has done for us. Many thanks Melinda!!!!

Jennifer Rossin (Homeowner)

Erika was extremely helpful.

Always made herself available when we asked for anything. She was transparent about the entire process and she was good of simplifying the process. Never felt pressured or rushed to make any decisions. If this wasn't my forever home, I would call her up again to do business again.

Nick Twyman

She is the best agent I have ever met/ used, she's very professional and beyond helpful.

Not only she walked us through all the steps, explained everything, repairing, every detail, but also helped coordinating all the events when we're couldn't be there! She's always on time, and respond instantly. She is very personable but not at all crossing the lines or being remotely pushy in any way, I couldn't say enough good things about her. If you need an agent you need to call her.

Tian Fu

I worked with Melinda to find a rental for our daughter.

I found her to be super accommodating, flexible, easy to communicate with and very efficient. I wouldn’t hesitate to use her services again and would recommend her in a heartbeat!

Della Robb

Erika is a true professional!

She’s very loyal, patient, honest, direct and knowledgeable about her profession. Four months and 26 houses later she helped my husband and I become home owners!!! She worked really hard day in and out to help us find our dream home and supported us through the entire process and even after. I couldn’t have wished for a better person to work with during my first home buying process. She’s very resourceful and informative to what you need and what you can expect. And most of all she does this out of the kindness of her heart, her incentive is making you happy. She kept each of my family members in mind, and her goal is to satisfy you and your family. If you’re in search of a new home, I highly recommend her a million times over!!! Erika Thank you for helping me find my brand new dream home!

Latrisha Nash (US Navy Active Duty)

Robin listed my home and had it sold in short order.

Her listing was well done, effective and drew good attention. Communication was good and showings were always followed up by a call or text give an update. I would highly recommend her services whether buying or selling.

Lee Bruce

Erika is on point!

She answered all of our questions. Got our house sold in less than a week. Found us the home we asked for. I highly recommend her!!

Jason Willink

Debbie is a fantastic realtor.

She understands the demands of the market, and works tirelessly to make sure your house shows in the optimal light. She will also search endlessly for the right house for you. We must have tromped through 40 houses before finding the right one. I would highly recommend Debbie for your buying and selling needs.

Mary Hensley (Director of Marketing)

We absolutely loved working with Melinda!

We started working with her three months before we met her while we were still living in Japan. She showed us houses often using video chat and even got us a video chat with a builder all before we arrived in the States. Once we were stateside, she worked tirelessly to make sure we were able to see as many homes as possible and introduced us to South Mills, NC where we built our home. We now consider Melinda a great friend and would highly recommend her if your in the market for a new home or property 🤗

Dana Lewis

I must say that Erika made this transition very smooth and acceptable.

And when problems arise she was right there and handle the situation, I would definitely use her again with future housing.

Roland DuBios Carr (Forklift operator and truck driver )

Where do I begin!

? Debbie is not only an amazing realtor, she is truly a great person. She made searching for the perfect home as stress-free as possible and was there very step of the way throughout the buying process. She was always on top of things that needed to be done and answered all of our questions. We cannot thank her enough for everything. I would highly recommend her!

Kristen Martin

Robin gets it done!

She will find you the right affordable home and her market savvy is very impressive. We worked her very hard a couple of years ago right up to putting in a contract and then we had to suddenly pull out of the process for personal reasons. She was extremely understanding and supportive. Hence, the reason we came right back to her when we were ready to buy. She got us on track. We are now living in the exact type of home we were searching for. Robin is a true real estate professional. I called her many times and never got her voice mail. She always answers your call. That is hard to beat. Highest recommendation!! 😁

Dale Clark (Retired Navy E9)

My husband and I were blown away by Debbie.

She was a pleasure to work with, from start and finish. She was exceptional in all aspects of the process and went above and beyond for us. Debbie was always available when needed. She was extremely efficient and knowledgeable. She made the entire experience, which potentially can be stressful at times, an absolute joy! We bought our home during a global pandemic, and was 4 hours away during the whole process. Debbie didn't hesitate to step into our shoes and represent us when needed and I trusted her explicitly. We are planning on selling our rental property next year, and I wouldn't consider using anyone but Debbie Thompson!

Sarah Wafford

Robin did an excellent job helping me find an amazing home during a time sensitive cross-country move.

She was extremely responsive to questions and communicated clearly via phone, email, and texting throughout the process. I'd recommend Robin to anyone without a second thought.


Melinda is the best!

She very patiently and professionally guided me through a long and challenging search for a condominium. She counseled me through some difficult market conditions, while always keeping my best interest in mind. I always felt incredibly secure knowing that I could rely on her expertise on all matters real estate. I highly recommend Melinda, and I have every intention of using her for my next real estate transaction.

Marianne Stover

I can’t thank Erika enough for helping me sell my home and find my dream home!

From day one she was informative and provided me a packet with all the information I needed to sell my home at top value. I was able to sell at a price well above what I intended. She made the process nothing but smooth. Additionally she helped me find a new home to move into in a crazy market. She was patient with me as we went searching from home to home throughout different cities. If you want a realtor who listens, is patient and will put your wants and needs first then she is the realtor for you!!

Tiana Scott

Melinda is very knowledgeable, courteous and determined to find the right property at the right price for her clients.

She went out of her way to show us several units before we decided on one. From the time we put in an offer through closing, Melinda stayed involved throughout the entire process and always made sure we were up-to-date with what was going on. We wouldn't hesitate to use her again and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a true real estate professional.

Paul Franklin

Whether you are buying or selling Erika Stewart is the real estate agent for you!

Erika was on top of every detail throughout the whole process and she is such a wealth of knowledge! She kept us updated every step of the way and she always went the extra mile! Erika was always prompt in responding to any questions or concerns we had whether it be through phone, email, or text. I certainly recommend Erika to anyone and everyone who’s looking for an agent!

Ashley Shepeski

I can’t say enough about how pleased I am with Melinda!

I was in need of finding a place to live during the height of the covid-19 pandemic and she went above and beyond. We spent a lot of time on FaceTime, text and calls to find the perfect place. Melinda was very up front and honest through the whole process. I am so grateful to her for this whole experience. This was the first time I bought a home and she was excellent about breaking it down for me so I knew what I was doing. Thank you Melinda for everything!!! Highly recommend Melinda Swager for any home buying needs!!!

Charlene Stuettgen

I have been knowing Robin for 8 years.

She has been assisting me and giving me financial tips to purchase a home. She is friendly and a professional person. My husband and I have enjoyed our experience in working with Robin. She was available for us whenever we wanted to see a property and even gave us recommendations. Thank you very much Robin and I will recommend Robin to my family and friends.

Teresa A Palmer (Client)

We had the pleasure of working with Robin over the past few months.

Right as the housing market decided to go crazy, she was the calm to the storm and made us feel completely at ease during the process. We were living abroad, but it felt as though we were personally walking through every home we virtually toured while thousands of miles away. Robin was prompt, thorough, and always provided us thoughtful responses to our questions and concerns. In the end, we were able to secure a phenomenal home in a wonderful neighborhood and we couldn’t be more pleased. Even though we were halfway around the world, Robin made us feel like we had a friend long before we arrived. We can’t recommend her enough!

D and T Carter (Military Officer)

I’m pleased to recommend Erika Stewart to anyone seeking a professional, responsive and courteous Realtor in the Hampton Roads area.

She was a joy to work with, and I will request her services in my next purchase.

Earnest McDonald (Home Purchaser)

My major issue with this whole process is that there is not enough stars!

!! Erika came highly recommended by friends and she did not disappoint! She was very punctual and EXTREMELY accommodating. She guided me through two separate purchases over the course of a year (both of which were flawlessly conducted while I was out of town) and provided much needed guidance during both processes! I would absolutely recommend Erika to anyone and will 100% be contacting her again when it come time to sell!!

Dale Swift

Robin was the agent for my wife and I before we even moved to Norfolk area.

She did an amazing job making us feel confident in the houses we were interested in by giving her professional knowledge on the areas. Robin worked tirelessly to make sure we ultimately worked out a deal in the end and we’re completely taken care of before moving in. Highest recommendation I can give. Thanks again Robin, Grace and Max

Matthew Morse (Buyer)

Amazing is an understatement!

Melinda was so patient with us as first time home buyers and so knowledgeable and communicative with what we were looking for. Day or night she was so responsive and if I ever have to buy a house again, I already know who my realtor is going to be.

Dyvon Guerrero

It was very hard for me to find a property and Miss Alicia was there every step of the way with no complaints and always encouraging me to go with what I want.

She helped me in every aspect she can greatly. I would go through her again without hesitation if I have the chance.

Albert Tejadq (Navy)

I believe that Robin is the best Real Estate agent that we have ever had the pleasure of utilizing.

We listed our house with Robin in October and left town for several months. During that time Robin had several open house events and always went by the house to check on it during our absence. We really appreciate her outstanding work and devotion to her clients. We had a great experience, and I am pleased to recommend her and her company to anyone selling their home.

ed walley (Home owner)

When I first called Robin I was a little hesitant.

People always warn you about bad realtors just wanting to make some money and being shady. This wasn’t true for Robin. When I met her she had a colored streak in her hair and drove a tiny blue VW bug that had “listed” on her license plate. Her sense of humor but me at ease. Since working with her, she was always very professional and up front with me. She gave me her honest input and recommendations that never left me uncomfortable in my decision. She was so great with helping my family and I buy a home, that we used her again to sell it 3 years later. My wife and I are so grateful of Robin. She really did make our buying/selling very easy. If the military sends us back to VA, we know who we are calling.

Ryan Pontifes (Military )

Alicia was amazing during the entire process from our first meeting where we met over coffee to discuss the process (this was our first house!

) to the final closing signatures. She was insightful and provided guidance when it was needed and gave us enough space to make our own decisions and take our time as well. We were deciding on a house from abroad which added to the process, but Alicia took it all in stride, accommodating time differences and bad internet connections. It was great working with Alicia and would do so again in the future, but hopefully not too soon!

Ed Clune

Melinda did such a great job!

I was so nervous about selling my house before I moved out of state but she made everything so easy. Honestly, she’s amazing and the best person to have on your side whether you’re buying or selling!! She’s the best!

Elizabeth Norden (1st Time Home Seller )

Melinda led us through the process of selling our home with confidence, expertise, and determination.

We had some emotional attachments to our home that we lived in for a very long time and we would only trust someone as competent as Melinda to guide us through this process. We had a lot of questions which she happily and quickly answered allowing for us to make informed decisions at every step. Highly recommend!

Suzanne Roberts

Robin did an amazing job selling our home.

Robin came highly recommended through some friends of mine that also used her to sell their home a few years ago. Our home was on the market 3 weeks before we got an offer, which was perfect for us so we took it! We were on a time crunch since we had to PCS the next month. Thank you Robin for all your help, I will defintely be recommending you to others!

Gisette McMurray

We listed our home in the Great Bridge area with Robin after having it on the market previously and receiving very few showings.

Robin's initial assessment provided us with a list of changes we needed to make before putting the house back on the market. We followed her advice and made the suggested changes, listed the house on a Monday and had a contract by that Thursday. She is a knowledgeable professional who provided us with critical feedback that created a quick sale. If you are looking for a realtor to sell your home, we highly recommend Robin Gauthier!

Mark and Paige Stanley

I would recommend Melinda to anyone who seriously is looking to buy a home.

She is very thorough and prepared at every property. She gets all available information for you so you can make the best decision in your home buying journey. We are renting, but she found us a rental that is nice and in a good area. She goes above and beyond for her clients and is available whenever you need her which is a lot to ask because she has many clients, but still makes time for each of her clients. Thank you Melinda for all your help!

Michael Martin (Transportation Routing Analyst Area Lead)

Robin did an amazing job helping us buy our first home- she was always very quick to respond to our questions and made sure we always felt taken care of.

We are definitely grateful to have had her knowledge and expertise throughout the process, which was made less stressful with her help. We couldn’t be happier and will highly recommend her to everyone!

Lauren & Dennis

Working with Debbie was a great experience!

Debbie kept me informed through the entire process of selling my mother's home. If I had questions, she had answers. When the time comes to sell my home, Debbie will be my first call.

Jeff Perry

So glad I chose to work with Robin again!

She has been over the top amazing! With everything that went "wrong" during my process, she handled everything with expert knowledge and finesse that helped keep me calm and reassured. Thank you, Robin!

Jennifer Webb (Tax Accountant)

She is amazing talents and very energetic , sincere, correct , promptly, negotiate well, and wisely solve the problems while selling the house situations.

She sold my property 2 times within 4 years. She is a diligent and constantly working advertisements her post cards and facebook.... She will be the number 1 realtor in town. She is a very good photographer and designs and idea. I am going to work with her next my property.

Grace kim (Owner of business )

My wife and I are so grateful that we switched our listing to Robin.

Our house had been on the market with another realtor (thanks to the relocation company my firm was using) for nearly two months without a single showing. After we insisted on relisting with Robin we had multiple offers in a week. My wife and I have now sold 3 homes with Robin and would never go with anyone else in Hampton Roads. She got our homes sold quickly and got us a great price every time!

Carlin Hebert (Engineer & Homeowner)

Moving from a different state to Virginia , Erika made house buying as easy as 1,2,3.

She was attentive to detail and communicated every step of the way. Wonderful person and an expert in her field.

Darlene Taylor (Director, Case Management )

Easiest home buying experience we’ve ever had!

Wouldn’t recommend anyone else, but Robin!

Lindsey DiBiaso

Robin was absolutely amazing helping my wife and I find and buy or first house.

She was extremely knowledgeable of the area, schools, and neighborhoods. Very professional I would recommend her to anyone and I look forward to being able to work with her again.

Kevin Vanous (Marine)

Melinda has definitely been a blessing in my home search.

She was attentive, professional, honest, and made my home search seem so easy. She kept me hopeful even when things seemed to be so overwhelming. I would give her 1 million stars if possible. She's absolutely awesome all around!! Thank you for everything Melinda!

Cheryl Chadwick

Melinda was amazing and then some!

Being a first-time home buyer is stressful and confusing, but Melinda alleviated that fear by being punctual, responsive, and knowledgeable. I ended up finding a beautiful home with everything I wanted and more. I will be recommending Melinda to all of my friends as they begin their home buying journey. Thanks, Melinda! You are the best.

Caitlin Murphy

Melinda is an absolute rockstar.

She took us to places that completely fit what we were looking for and didn’t try to sell us on everything. She just let us look around. Then she gave us her honest opinion as to what she thinks would be a fair offer for that property. She works fast, and always responds to an questions ASAP. We had a little bit of a problem at the end with the seller fixing some issues with the property and Melinda handled it super quick to we could close on time. Anyone would be lucky to have her as their agent!!

Tyler Lajoie (Buyer)

Might just be the most in-depth, patient person I’ve ever met.

Mrs. Stewart walked me and my wife (Latrisha) through the whole home buying process without missing a step. Most people claim your first home purchase is a nightmare. I beg to differ...... or maybe it was just our Realtor. The whole process was painless and worth it. Thank you Erika for everything. We definitely recommend Erika Stewart to be your future Realtor.

Marvin Nash (New Home Owner)

As a first time home buyer I needed all the help I could get.

Debbie is extremely friendly and awesome to be around! Helped me with everything I needed. Would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy a house!

Lane Waddell

Erika was amazing at helping me through this process as a buyer in this current market.

Thank you so much.

Celestine Canty (Customer )


Dever Clevinger has been an outstanding agent for both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new condo. Dever started this process in June of last year while we were trying to identify the things that needed to be done for the successful sale of our home of the last 18 years. Throughout this process she answered every call and took the time to advise us about repairs and improvement that would help make this transition successful. Whenever we were challenged to find the resources we needed, Dever took the time to provide us with recommendations that allowed us to complete the preparation for the sale of our home. While this was happening, she also stayed engaged in finding us our future home. For over 6 months Dever was finding new places to look at while we communicated our ever-changing ideas. With a very optimistic and upbeat personality Dever never lost faith that she would find us a new home and she did. From listing to getting an offer within 30 days on the sale of our house and 30 more days to zero in on our new home. Dever was an absolute pleasure to work with, always available and she met all our expectations. We would and have recommended Ms. Clevinger to our friends & family for their real estate needs. We think of her as family.

Ron and Gina Morton

As a first time home buyer we were very nervous about the whole process but melinda assured us that with her help it would be a breeze.

Not only was she very knowledgeable but very down to earth and handled almost every aspect of this development with outstanding professionalism. We highly recommend Melinda and her team for anyone looking for a stress free home buying experience.

Armand Shehu (Heavy equipment operator )

Robin is a true professional.

She helped us find the perfect home in Chesapeake and worked hard to get us a fair deal and overcome obstacles in buying this house. I would highly recommend Robin if you need an efficient, caring, and knowledgeable agent! Thank you for everything, Robin!

Margsret Plante


Stewart was phonemenal throughout entire home buying process! She was always available for any question or concern, very transparent and knowledgeable when it came to discussing procedures that this journey consisted of. This process was lengthy but she made it a piece of cake , from gathering information regarding grant programs, to ensuring all my must haves were checked off of my home buying list. To anyone looking to purchase a home she’s definitely a sweetheart and the BEST AGENT !


Robin is the best.

If you want someone who will work with you and go the extra mile, Robin is your real estate person. She was with us every step of this long distance process. Thanks Robin for a job well done

Donna and Dallas Moore

Robin knows how to get your home on multiple platforms for advertising.

Her knowledge of the demographics of an area is a plus. I had no stress selling my home and I intend to use Robin to help me find my forever home when I’m ready. I would recommend her to my friends and anyone else who is looking for a realtor.

Erika did an excellent job beginning to end with helping me in my search for my first home.

She is enthusiastic, and excited about the process, and operates with confidence, professionalism, and a positive attitude. Highest possible recommendation!!!

Matthew Donnell (First Time Home Owner)

After years of being an out of state landlord, we decided it was time to put our house on the market.

Robin visited the house shortly after I contacted her and gave us some suggestions on repairs and an asking price prior to putting it on the market. The house went on the market on a Saturday and was under contract by that Monday. I would highly recommend Robin and her team to buy or sell a home in the tidewater area. We felt like all of our needs were met and the whole process, especially being out of state, could not have been easier.

Greg Quail (Project Manager)

This is the second time we’ve used Robin as a realtor and we will continue using her for any houses we buy/sell.

She is informative and helpful. Our budgets have always been modest but we always feel like such a priority. Cannot recommend her enough!

Alana Ripley

Robin has sold 2 homes for us in the past year.

She's knowledgeable, friendly, responsive, easy to work with, and most importantly - she's effective. I highly recommend using her to help you buy or sell your next home.

Justin Hunt (Mechanical Engineer)

Very smooth process , advised us well when needed.

When things got a little stressful at the end to no fault of hers or ours she handled it with ease and grace. I could not recomend her more to anyone looking to purchase a home. If we do sell our current home she will be the first person I ask to represent us. Mike R.

Mike Ribeiro

I will definitely be referring Erika to anyone who ask.

She went above and beyond for me and my family I couldn't have asked for better realtor!

Desaree Jefferson

Robin worked with us to determine the best time to list our home, gave us staging advice, and walked us through all the offers.

We got 9 offers over a weekend of 20+ showings! Robin is a true professional! Did I mention that she helped us find our Next Home too!

Jamie & Cindy Wakefield

You guys have “No Idea” how many homes we seen from Hampton to Virginia Beach to Chesapeake to Norfolk, basically the entire Tidewater area.

But no matter where we searched, Erika was alway willing to make the drive. Erika truly understood the assignment and beyond & above. Thank you for helping us find our dream home and the perfect man/she cave for us (LOL). 10’s across the board, best hands down!!!!!

Jasmine Mercer

Erika recently helped me secure a rental property.

The market was very competitive and I was very picky. Erika was abreast on all of the ins and outs of the process. Very knowledgeable on the various areas of Virginia Beach and Chesapeake and the values of the properties. Erika was prompt in her responses to secure visits to various properties, which is a must in to be competitive, the properties were going really quickly. I ended up looking at 12 different properties before deciding on this one and I love it. It was worth the wait and it is perfect, exactly what I wanted. Erika was patient and supportive throughout the process. Highly recommend utilizing Erika!

Tiara Wade (Office Manager )

Dever represented my wife and I when we bough our first home.

She was very flexible when showing us many... (MANY) properties. Dever always had a great selection of houses lined up to see in the areas we were looking. She had valuable input that was offered but she balanced this well by ultimately letting us form our own opinions. Whenever we needed anything she was very responsive and prompt for appointments while being super polite with any interactions; email, calls etc. She was instrumental in helping us through the home buying process from start to finish, pre-loan approval, offer, acceptance the whole thing! It was like having an excellent YouTube tutorial or the a guide book with us at all times. She will definitely be representing us for our next real estate venture. 10/10 would recommend.

Alex Brown

We first met Melinda when she took time out from her Memorial Day weekend to show us the house.

Since then, she consistently went "above and beyond" to ensure our home-buying experience was a good one. Professional and dedicated, she always went the extra mile to answer our questions and address our concerns. Her work on our behalf was always on-time, thorough, and accurate, and she made the process of buying our home smoother than we thought possible (we were able to close on the home less than six weeks from seeing it the first time). Give Melinda a call for any of your real estate needs!

Steve and Terri Anderson

Melinda went out of her way to make our home purchase as smooth as possible and handled the sale very well.

We have purchased several homes and our experience with her was the best.

Mark Schadler

Melinda did such an amazing job and we couldn't have asked for anyone better to help us through the process.

We looked for our forever home for about 8 months. Put numerous offers in and got rejected so many times in this crazy market and she was so patient and supportive to not let us get discouraged. The wait was worth it though when we found our perfect forever home and she made the process so easy. Highly recommend!!!

Travis and Stephanie

Robin was recommended to me by friends and she did not disappoint.

She helped me to both buy & sell. Robin is very professional and knowledgeable. She responded promptly to all of my questions and kept me informed during the entire process. I would highly recommend Robin weather buying or selling.

James Wood (Physician)

Robin was a great Realtor and understood what we were looking for.

She was always very active in the search and always made herself available to look at houses. She made the process much easier than it could have been. I would highly recommend her as your agent!

Steve Day

We were referred to Robin through a mutual friend and we were so glad we were!

We were moving to the area from Florida and she made the transition so smooth! She made the time to show us houses the limited time we could be in the area to do so and she listened to our needs and found a home for us that fits our family and is beautiful! She stayed on top of everything which gave us piece of mind working from another state! She took the time to take a video during the inspection which we couldn’t be there for and she was able to get us a home warranty which we are beyond grateful for! She made the process much less stressful and we felt confident having her and those she works with in our corner! Robin took the time to answer all of our questions and responded in a timely manner, just a pleasure to work with! We are extremely grateful for all she has done and highly recommend Robin, she is fantastic!

Kim Steele

Melinda was A+ from start to finish she is very passionate about her career and made things very easy for me start to finish.

I highly recommend Melinda for all your real estate needs

Derrick Daniels (Govt)

When relocating back to the area, it was important for my family to find someone who knew the Hickory area of Chesapeake, and we were fortunate to find Robin & NextHome.

Not only did Robin know the school systems, local businesses, and neighborhoods in the desired area, she also had tremendous knowledge and experience with understanding realistic home values during a price boom this area hadn't seen in quite a while. Whether you are selling or buying your next home, we would highly recommend Robin and her team at NextHome

Tommy Lassiter (Director of Operations)

Working with Robin was a pleasure.

She was always available to talk with, easy to coordinate with when we wanted to see houses, and overall knowledgeable about the market and area we were shopping in.

Jacqueline Dugan

Erika did an amazing job helping me find my first home.

She was patient and gave me reassurance in me finding the perfect home for me.

Mashanda Carr

Melinda’s professionalism and expertise permeated our every interaction with her in both buying a new home and in selling our old home.

She always responded promptly to our phone calls and text messages and emails. She was always patient, kind, good natured and enthusiastic. She was very knowledgeable about every aspect of both buying and selling homes. She was always spot-on every step of the way, skillfully orchestrating the entire process and the cast of characters involved in negotiations, inspections, financing, surveys, appraisals, closing etc.

Thomas Schlater (Dr.)

She showed the utmost respect and professionalism.

She was fast and easy to contact. I told her exactly what I wanted she got me exactly that! I will be using her to buy my home.

Kimberly Wright


Stewart tirelessly and patiently worked on my behalf as I engaged in the process of locating and purchasing a home. She continued to operate in a professional manner and shared her knowledge of the process while taking my preferences into consideration. She is highly recommended.

Penny Mayo

Made buying a home easy, took pictures, videos and did walk through’s for me to see properties as I was buying a house while over sea’s.

Thank you very much for finding me the house I’ve wamted!

Raymond Olsen (Logistics Managment/ MSC)

I highly recommend Albert for his exceptional professionalism and organizational skills.

He did an incredible job in assisting my wife and I throughout the entire home buying process. Mr. Albert went above and beyond to assist us in finding a home even while we weren’t yet living in the state. His commitment and dedication to his clients' needs is commendable. He ensured that everything was handled efficiently and effectively. His attention to detail and ability to keep things on track made the experience smooth and stress-free. I am extremely satisfied with his services and would not hesitate to work with him again in the future.

Juan Garcia

After meeting with Dever and explaining what we were looking for in a house, she hit the ground running.

She made all the arrangements to view homes that she knew we could be interested in. Dever also was able to keep us both up to date, since my husband was already in North Carolina and I was still in New York helping my mom through chemo, it was no easy task. She listened to both our needs and happily accommodated! Dever is a self-starter and hard worker. She is very personable and considerate. She is quick to respond to any questions or concerns that you may have. We would recommend Dever to any person who is looking for a real estate agent. We do not say that lightly because we believe that whoever you recommend is also a reflection on you; therefore we would never recommend someone who we have any doubt would not follow through. And that’s why we have absolutely no reservations on recommending Dever because we KNOW she will work hard, listen to your needs and make it happen! She is a breath of fresh air!

Sheila & Jim Carollo

We couldn’t have sold our home without Melinda.

She was instrumental in the process and knows the business very well. She is very knowledgeable and professional and that was appreciated by all involved in our transaction. She is calm, honest, personable and willing to help in any way. If you are selling or buying do not hesitate to use Melinda. I have recommended her to friends and will continue to do so. She’ll be my first call if I need a Realtor in the Tidewater area again.

Della Robb

Extremely knowledgeable of the VA/NC area.

Very supportive and patient throughout a sellers market while working as a buyers agent. Market made it difficult to compete with a VA loan but still turned success in as little as two months of house hunting/Offers. Recommend using this agent for all future real estate business!!

Jordan Michael Holmes

Renee was such a wonderful agent.

She guided us through the whole process explaining everything and in detail along the way. She was very responsive when texting and communicating about the houses we were looking at. If not for her we would have drowned in process. We appreciate her so much and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home.

Ryan Blake

Dever is a wonderful realtor but she is also a wonderful person.

Dever is extremely knowledge and had answers to all of our questions. She either answered every phone call or called as back as soon as she could. She is extremely personable and is very easy to get along with. She made the home buying process as stress free and easy as she could. I would recommend her to anyone out there looking to buy or sell a home.

Ryan Morton

If there was 10 she would have surpassed it!

I can’t say enough about Melinda. Treated me like a friend and family besides doing above and beyond her responsibilities! Don’t look any further for the best agent!

Annie Haley

Debbie helped us purchase our 1st investment property.

Her knowledge and expertise is over the top as well as her patience, understanding of our needs and personal attention. When it came time to sell, she fought for the best deal. We highly recommend Debbie!

Gina and Robert Smith

We had a wonderful experience working with Debbie.

She is very friendly and helpful and she worked hard to get us into our beautiful new home! Debbie was easy to get ahold of anytime of day, got back to us quickly on any and all the correspondence, and made the home buying process as quick and painless as it could be! Dale and Christine

Dale Jacoby

Robin was great to work with on our recent sale.

I really liked her state-of-the art marketing approach that included a 3D virtual tour of our house and video posts to multiple websites in addition to the MLS. Her approach was very effective--- we sold our investment property at asking price within two days and had multiple offers! She was extremely attentive and responsive throughout the entire process. Robin's normal response time is immediate or within 10 minutes! I would highly recommend Robin whether you are buying or selling your next house.

Daryll Stephenson (Uptight accountant)

Erika is an absolute rockstar.

She was a godsend! I started this process with a different realtor (who I had to fire), and so by the time I got to Erika I had already had two contracts fall apart. She was an absolute breath of fresh air - everything you pray for in a realtor. Super responsive, flexible in her schedule and available to go see houses whenever I was, looked out for concerns I hadn’t even thought about, and truly cared about finding a home that fit my needs. If you are buying or selling a house - you should absolutely reach out to Erika, she’ll take great care of you and help you get into your dream home just like she did with me. I cannot recommend her highly enough!!!

Alicia Penn (Lawyer)

Erika is absolutely top notch in the real estate industry.

She's very informative and goes well above and beyond to help you find the perfect home!


We are so happy that we found Erika!

We were new to the home buying process, and she was very helpful and patient with our never ending questions. We could not be happier with our new home, and Erika was a huge part of that. She sorted out all our hiccups along the way (and there were many) and that made it so much easier for us to enjoy the ride! Thank you so much!

Andrew Woods (Photographer)

She did an awesome job!

Couldn’t have asked for a better realtor/friend! We told her what we wanted, we we needed it by and she made it happen!

Adrienne Hardy (Erika Stewart)

Melinda was extremely helpful with finding us a rental in a very short period of time.

She was always available to answer questions via email or text and worked around our busy lives when scheduling our visits to various properties. Melinda is always friendly, professional, and easy to work with because she listens to your concerns. I would definitely recommend Melinda to anyone looking to buy, sell, or rent a home.

Kayse Reese

Melinda was easily the most upfront and honest realtor I've ever dealt with.

From the word go she assisted me in everyway possible with not only the finding of my soon to be new property and home in Moyock, NC but also in the selling of my house in Virginia Beach. She got my house viewed, offered on and accepted in just over two weeks. She was very communicative and always kept me abreast of every situation (and there were many) and we spoke on almost a daily basis. I will be recommending her to anyone I know looking for a realtor for any reason!

Nathaniel O Martell (Happy customer)

Erika was very informative and listened to our requests.

She helped us navigate through this crazy market and we secured our beautiful new construction home. You won’t be disappointed working with her as your realtor.
