Matt was great and responsive.

Didn’t matter what time of day I called him, he answered. Even when there was bad news he always relayed information so I was never left in the dark when it came to my home buying. Would definitely recommend Matt and his team. Will be using them again in the future if permitted.

Lowe was an amazing help in my quest to find my first home!! He was very helpful and patient with my lack of knowledge in this process. He truly had my best interest at heart. I felt comfortable knowing that I was getting the best with Mr. Lowe by my side. I highly recommend.


Melinda went the extra mile to explain everything about the sale of my property and what the options were and the pros and cons for each.

Was always ready to assit with anything we needed.

Thank you Melinda Barber for assisting me in my move.

You went above expectations to help me find a good house during the COVID-19. Melinda was able to assist me in finding the right house without my seeing it in person. She was there for extra inspections and had recommendations that helped me feel confident in my choice of a new home.

Lowe was extremely knowledgeable and very professional throughout the entire process. He definitely made my home shopping/purchasing experience a success by consistently following up with me and ensuring that all my concerns or questions were answered.

Augustina is the only choice for my home purchase.

She is dedicated, a woman of her word, and very knowledgeable about not only the industry itself but the market as a whole.

N. Miller

Matt was able to adjust for our needs as things changed with our out of state move.

Laura R.

My first time purchasing a home could not come to fruition without Augustina.

She was able to find a property that would allow me to create generational wealth for my family and she made the process as seamless as can be.


Local knowledge:***** Process expertise:***** Responsiveness:***** Negotiation skills:***** If you want to know your realtor will go above and beyond what’s expected then hire David.

He not only had a buyer for my home within 2 days of listing, but he cared for my property while I was out of state. David was a perfect example of what you want in representation while selling your home. His loving family are a great representation of his character and his career in the military has provided him with the ideal professionalism. If you want to know you have a realtor getting the job done, then I recommend putting David to work for you. I’ve bought and sold 7 homes in my lifetime and my experience working with David was my best realtor experience by far. I can’t say enough good about this guy, he’s simply excellent to work with.Less


From beginning to end she never gave up on us and always stayed true to her word.

She is one you can trust to get you what you want at the price you deserve. Augustina, I cannot thank you enough for the miracles you created for us. If it were not for you I don't know where we would be.

Melinda is absolutely the best.

She was helpful. She stuck by my side through a difficult pre-approval process. She was with me every step of the way to CLOSING. She communicated with me regularly with updates. She became like a good friend. She stayed on top of the repairs and inspections. When I couldn't be there for the inspections, she was there. She is a great agent. I never seen such determination and dedication. When others gave up on me, she stuck by my side. I absolutely recommend her as an agent to work with. Definitely of 10 out of 10 RATING!!!!!!

Jennifer L.

Excellent Realtor, She is very knowledgeable and knows how to negotiate a deal that favors all parties.

I was an out-of-town buyer she not only found the place, but she also negotiated terms, handled the inspections, and closed all my son had to do was move in. I can not being to tell you how RARE a person she is. You can guarantee she means business and her word is solid.

R. Harris

Melinda Barber is one of the best realty buy agent I recently worked with to purchase my home in Columbia.

She works with Excel Real Estate. I was recommended by one of my friends locally to Melinda to help me since I didn’t know much of Columbia. Melinda was very thorough with respect to writing contracts, following up with the seller agent, giving me recommendations of home inspection, termite inspection, foundation inspection, HVAC etc. She even helped me with getting water, electric, and sewage switch from the banker to my account. Buying an foreclosure home was a challenge since I’m a very person. But Melinda helped every step successfully. I highly recommend Melinda for any real estate needs. Five out of five rating!!



Barb C.

It was a blessing to have someone like Celeste to guide us in the processing of purchasing our land.

We had purchased homes before but had no idea how to start the process of purchasing a acreage. She was very professional and made this purchase very easy. We definitely recommend her as an agent in all of your real estate needs.
