We help buyers & sellers everyday.  We're grateful for their feedback!


Once we met her we clicked immediately. We're stuck with each other for good! We would like to convey our admiration for Melissa during our transaction of purchasing our new home. From the initial phone contact to our meeting to view the condo we had an instand feeling that we had been good friends for years - it's spooky! Melissa is smart, attentive and confident in her abilites and we just knew we would buy something from her whether it was a condo or another property. We've bought and sold 5 properties in the past 20 years and havce never felt like our realtor cared about us the way Melissa did (and still does). With the others it was a business transaction but with Melissa it was finding a HOME. Thank you for having Melissa on your team, you've earned our trust and respect because of her. We wish you all continued success and prosperity.

We first met Melissa in 2014. She was the agent for the sellers of the home we were buying. We were extremely happy with our purchase and the sales process and so impressed with Melissa’s professionalism and personality that we listed our condominium with her that same weekend. Both transactions ended well for us. Since then, we stayed connected. Melissa knew we loved our home in Comox but also understood it was not our primary residence. So, she presented a few opportunities for us along the way. When we finally considered listing our home, Melissa was our obvious choice. Months prior to our listing she provided us with market updates for representative properties which eventually gave us confidence on our sale price and timing. She also had a thorough understanding of the real estate markets on Vancouver Island and the lower mainland and provided sage advice along the way. We were not in Comox for most of the sales process, but Melissa took care of things in our absence, she even washed all the windows prior to at least one showing. And we were travelling abroad when we completed the sale. Melissa was patient dealing with the time differences, made everything extremely easy for us with the electronic paperwork and paid particular attention to the details because we weren’t around. Thanks again! We would highly recommend Melissa to anyone selling or buying a home.

I first met Melissa Berrigan in 2009 when she was the agent that represented the sellers from my first house on Vancouver Island located in Fanny Bay. Melissa’s representation as the seller’s agent was impressive, she was honest, responsive, and a pleasure to work with. Since then, I have always chosen Melissa and her company to help me with numerous home searches, house inspections, with the sale of the Fanny Bay house and with the selection, purchase and closing on a beautiful house in Comox BC in 2014. During 2021 Melissa was again a wonderful help as I worked to sell the Comox house and acreage and locate a new house. With numerous visits to houses for sale, Melissa remained patient, had a wonderful attitude and helped me find a lovely home in Campbell River. I have always found Melissa to be extremely knowledgeable about the areas I was searching on Vancouver Island, the homes I was interested in and she was my trusted representative with the sellers and their agents. Her contacts on Vancouver Island assisted me with every transaction from selling, purchasing, finding the right home inspector, the right broker, and finding financing. Every time her help far exceeded my expectations in a real estate agent. Melissa is always a professional, she is always on time, prepared for the showing, has the correct paperwork, ready to answer any questions that were presented, knowledgeable about the homes and neighborhood areas, such as schools, shopping and restaurants, even dog walking areas and parks for the kids. She always made the process of selling or buying easy, and it was fun and enjoyable spending time searching and seeing the homes with her. I now understand how many hours of research and the preliminary work she did for me, and all her clients, thus making the experience so much less stressful. I am sure you will find that she is a joy to work with, kind, a good sense of humor, professional, respected in her field, works hard for her clients, loyal, and honest. Melissa is by far the best agent real estate agent I have met over the last 14 years and the only one I would work with. I would highly recommend Melissa Berrigan as your agent in your home search. Thanks for being you!

We recently moved provinces to beautiful Vancouver Island and had the pleasure of working with Melissa who helped us buy our first home together. My partner and I had the bad luck of moving during a pandemic where he was able to attend house viewings in person, but I was on the other side of a video call. Throughout the whole process of working with a mortgage broker, finding a home within our budget, and negotiating the sale (under asking I might add!), Melissa worked incredibly hard for us. She made her job look effortless and always had such a warm smile. She answered our calls every single time, listened to our wish list and found the exact house we were looking for. Not only did she take the pressure off the home buying experience, but we were able to secure our new home within 2 weeks of meeting with her. We feel very confident when we say that nobody knows the Comox Valley / Campbell River areas better than Melissa Berrigan. We are looking forward to working with her again when we buy our next home in beautiful Campbell River.

We would like to thank Melissa for all her help in finding us our new home. She is very relatable and it seemed like we have known her for years which made us more relax in choosing the right home. We would definiately recommend her to all if moving to this part of the island as you won't find a more 'real' and 'trustworthy' realtor. She was also very professional and we felt at ease with no pressure from her for a quick sale. Her knowledge of the market and her hard work made our transition into our new home simple and flawless. Again - thank you Melissa for finding our forever home. ❤

We hired Melissa Berrigan first to sell our apartment in Comox, and then to help us to purchase a home in the Comox Valley. Melissa was thoroughly professional and extremely knowledgeable about the local market conditions. She always went the extra mile for us, even when our initial preferences changed as we grew to recognize what was available. Her flexibility in understanding our needs and finding the perfect home for us was extraordinary. We have bought and sold many homes before this, and without a doubt, Melissa was one of the best realtors with whom we have worked. Over the almost five decades in which we have been purchasers, the real estate market has changed dramatically, with interactive technology now the norm. Melissa made that process simple and straightforward. Using online paperwork to sign documents as needed, and having immediate, daily updates for the full range of listings for homes nearby, kept us involved even though we were sitting thousands of kilometres away. From the initial success at selling our apartment, within hours of listing, through the days of searching out homes for us to audition, Melissa’s guidance and expertise gave us confidence and put us at ease. She was well informed about the market and the communities in which we looked, and remarkably caring and patient, as we gradually changed the parameters of the home that we thought we were seeking. The home Melissa helped us to purchase looked nothing like the house we initially thought we had wanted, and Melissa was always adaptable as she happily journeyed with us through this transition. Melissa Berrigan is a true professional. During negotiations we always felt that Melissa had our best interest in mind. We have and will continue to recommend her to all of our family and friends.

I moved to the Comox Valley in July of 2021. I looked casually at properties here for four to five years, frequently looking at properties that Melissa sent me via email. Over that time, I saw several homes that interested me, but I just wasn’t ready to commit. This was time well spent though, as it allowed me to see what was out there, and how much I’d have to be prepared to spend. As prices started to climb, I realized I’d better get into the market. I first made an offer on a garden home, which fell through due to a strata regulation. A few months later, another home came available. Melissa contacted me via text and stressed that I had to act quickly. She toured the house my sister, and I made an offer “sight unseen”. It was a multiple offer situation, and Melissa counselled me, and gave me good advice, so I was the successful buyer of my home. I feel very happy with my purchase, and I am hopefully in my forever home. I highly recommend Melissa as a realtor. She has been the realtor for several relatives and friends, and I we’ve all been very satisfied with her work. She tries to find the right property for you and does not pressure you to do something you aren’t comfortable with.

We met Melissa initially by phone. She kept us informed of the available listings, answered our many questions with promptness and details. Then when we met her for the first time, we felt very comfortable with her knowledge, humour and spontaneous laugh. Melissa helped us relocate from the southern island to our present home in beautiful Crown Isle. She made this move enjoyable and easy. She found us our new home which was under construction. She kept us informed on the status and construction details as they progressed towards final completion. After the sale was complete, she has continued to keep in touch, answer questions about the locality and drop in to see how we are doing. We definitely would recommend Melissa to anyone who is looking for someone to sell or purchase a home.
