 Here’s what some of my clients have said about my service as their agent:

Dear Belinda, 
 I really have nothing to say to assist you in bettering your skills as a realtor, I feel you have went above and beyond your job description to assure the sale of my property was in my best interest. 
I felt your door was open at all times, and the communication was completely professional.  I have other properties I want to sell and hope you will continue to assist me with this challenge.
I will refer anyone buying or selling property to you at Coldwell Bankers, I feel very comfortable giving your name and my experience to everyone as a positive experience.  I find it was hard to believe all of the communication and organization and your ability to coordinate the sale of both the properties went as smooth as you made it.   
Thank you.

You have spent pretty close to a whole year with us.. We appreciated all your hard work, honesty, and being so flexible with your family. We really enjoyed having you as our Realtor. Your just what we needed! We loved that you were always there when we needed you. Thank you so much. We will miss seeing you and the kids all the time, once we close on the new house. Thank you again for all your hard work.

Good Afternoon! I would like to take a minute and really thank you for the time you're putting into my move. My only true regret in this move is that my wife and I aren't there to thank you in person, yet. I've traveled the world in my time in the Army and I'll be the first to say that you truly poses a rare quality. The basic act of common decency and humanity is scarce to say the least. We are legitimately and truly grateful for your time. I just wanted you to know that! Thanks again and again!

Just wanted to write and say thank you so much for everything. Your hard work and quick responses to emails and calls was greatly appreciated. We received and signed the paperwork today. So excited to have this all go through. I know you went out of your way to assist us and we are very grateful! We will recommend you for any realtor services in Northern Michigan!

Belinda:   Thank you for all you have done.

We first found Coldwell Banker on the internet while looking at homes on
Zillow. Contacted one of the agents by email about a property.
We received no answer to that email. Then because we are not easily
discouraged we drove from Arizona the Michigan. When we arrived in Kalkaska
we called the agent and again got no response.

Then we called Belinda Mercado, her number was on the list at Zillow, she
answered her phone all though it was early in the morning, rearranged
her day, as we told her we were there to see a particular property and would
only be there 2 days.

Belinda was good to us and worked diligently to help us see any thing we
wanted to see as well as to find what would work for us.
By the end of the 2nd day we felt that we had to leave and get back to work.
We had in fact seen a place that we wanted and she took care of
all the needed foot work to help us attain the place through an auction

It was quite involved and extensive effort was required to accomplish the
purchase. All of this was done through email and phone calls.

Belinda has since helped us in many ways, because we are still in Arizona and
will not be there until later this year.

Again Belinda, thank you for all you do.

Belinda has gone out of her way to do an exceptional job of representing us as sellers,  Not only has she guided us thoroughly through each step of the process, but also made calls to known companies, setting up appointments, obtaining quotes, and over seeing work that was required from the buyers to address issues in the house. In addition, on her personal time, often went and to check on the home to insure all was secure and safe, even did numerous small jobs there !! Belinda has also called or emailed me from her home with any updates or questions, sometimes while making dinner or attending to her children instead of waiting until she arrived at the office the next morning.... 
   My overall experience with Belinda and Coldwell Banker, has truly been outstanding! 
L. Miller ~ Kingsley


Just a quick note to thank you for the great service you rendered helping us sell our log home on the Manistee River. Having had the cabin listed with another agent with a different brokerage I had the chance to see First Hand the difference between you two.

You had a total understanding of the market and how “Special” a property such as ours had to be presented. You understood fully the value of our listing.

We appreciate that you were in constant communication with us during the listing period; at all times you represented us as an agent should represent their client. So often I have seen agents simply represent themselves regardless of any adverse effect it may cause to their clients.

Again Belinda, a job very well done. As I mentioned before 10% of the agents make 90% of the money while 90% of the agents make 10% of the money. You are and will continue to be one of the 10%

Belinda thanks for going above and beyond! We appreciate all the time you spent with us over this past year showing properties, writing offers, getting the deals in front of us.. We appreciate everything you’ve done!

 Amber & Dale ~ Kalkaska

 Belinda went over and beyond in her assistance to help me buy a house. Our relationship started by me looking online while living in BAJA Mexico. Belinda was the only agent of several I had tried to contact that responded personally. After that point I worked with her exclusively. She continued to work with me, answering all questions and even placing an offer on a property for me while I was still in Mexico. We ended up closing on my favorite listing in a matter of 2 weeks. Belinda is the best Realtor I have ever worked with and I have bought and sold over 20 homes in my life!!!

D. Manz ~ Rapid City


 Belinda thanks for everything, I appreciate all the work you have done for us.

 Alison ~ Mancelona


 We will  recommend you to all are friends that are looking to buy! The Menards Gift card was over the top. Thanks!

 Meghan & Gary ~ Kalkaska


 You are the only Realtor that stuck with us the whole time and we really appreciate everything you did for us.

 Art & Lisa


 Thanks for helping us find the perfect house; it is everything we had hoped for and more.

 Reno & Angela ~ Traverse City


 Belinda thank you for taking such good care of my daughter in her home selection, it means allot to us to know you are helping her every step in this process.

 Dean - Kalkaska


 Thanks for always acting so quickly and getting the information on all the great deals in Traverse City. I really appreciate your hard work and will recommend you to everyone I know. You’re a great Realtor and you really know how to take care of your clients.  Thanks for making our home buying experience an easy road.

 Terry & Robbin ~ Fife Lake 


 Belinda, I really appreciate all the Bank Repo market knowledge you have shared with me.  Thanks for taking the time to explain the whole process to me.

 Debbie ~ Traverse City


Thanks again for all your efforts... I have been very impressed with you as the last buyer's agent I had here was not very helpful when I was in the market! He was more interested in securing his cut of the sale and not very willing to help actually find and secure the house!
Corey ~ Kalkaska

In this line of work only 10% of the agents make 100% of the money, you Belinda are in the 10%!!  We feel like it was meant to be when we had the Traverse City agent send us comps on our Manistee River home, we knew right away she would not work out for us! I've always said to you that I do NOT like Realtors.  You, Belinda are the first and I have sold several homes. Thanks for getting our river property sold, we are blessed!
