"Marcie is a DREAM to work with - she is knowledgeable, honest, genuine, kind, and a definite expert in her field. We will forever be grateful for her assistance in our search and close on our new home! Marcie was a true advocate and helped keep everyone on track (which wasn't always easy!) for a speedy and timely close of escrow. We could not have gotten through it without her! Her attention to details, time management, and her wealth of knowledge/connections really sets her apart from others. To top it off, all 3 of my kids fell in love with her - let's just say, her patience (with the adults and kids in our family) makes her a saint! " - S. Wightman, 2019

"Our family is moving from Massachusetts to Los Angeles and needed to find an affordable, family-friendly place to live from 3000 miles away! We couldn’t have done it without Marcie! From the moment I connected with Marcie, we were taken care of. She is friendly and communicative and works hard to figure out what you want, work within your budget, and familiarize you with the area and the market. We were able to schedule a short visit to LA to tour homes, and Marcie prepared us so that when we arrived we would be ready to put in an application. She arranged several homes to tour and we were able to find a great place in just one day! She’s handled all of our lease and move-in documents, making the whole daunting process feel safe and easy. We had an uncomfortable interaction with a tenant at one house on our tour, and Marcie’s professionalism helped diffuse the situation. We would recommend Marcie to anyone without ANY reservations! " - E. Cooperdock, 2019

"Marcie helped me purchase my first home on the west coast. I couldn’t ask for a better realtor. She was professional and efficient, always one step ahead. Marcie is very organized and knowledgeable about the areas I was looking in. She also provided great referrals for vendors" - K. Lo, 2018

"We are moving from out of state and Marcie helped us search for and close on a wonderful home in Pasadena. She is very knowledgeable about the area and exceptionally thorough. She spent days reviewing permits after the initial offer was submitted and helped walk us through a very complicated and difficult square footage discrepancy. Ultimately, we were able to settle on a lower purchase price all based on Marcie's findings and scrutiny. She has provided excellent references for inspectors, broker, a contractor, and even a doctor! She is lovely to work with and keeps the process on track. We couldn't have gotten through the process without her. " - Julie Atay, June 2017

"Marcie is the best realtor with whom I have worked. She assisted my husband and I with purchasing a beautiful home in Pasadena after I accepted a job which required me to relocate for work. I had heard horror stories about how difficult it can be to buy a house in the Los Angeles area but with Marcie's help, our first offer on a house was accepted and we closed on the house before I even started my new position! Marcie is wonderful to work with and I highly recommend her to anyone interested in buying a house. " - Lisa Whittington Goldstone, July 2017

"I recently accepted a faculty position at the University of Southern California (USC), so my husband and I are relocating to the Los Angeles area from Rhode Island (RI). We loved the house we owned in RI and were hoping to find a house to rent in Los Angeles that we loved just as much. The USC Real Estate and Asset Management Office connected us with Marcie Sabatella. She is wonderful! Prior to our rental house hunting trip to LA, Marcie communicated with me via email and phone to discuss our housing needs. She arranged for us to see several rental houses during our visit; and when we selected the houses we liked, she worked with us to create our rental application packet and then submitted to our top four choices. Due to following her expert guidance, we were accepted by our top two choices! She guided us through the competitive housing rental market adeptly. She was a joy to work with, and made a stressful process a lot less stressful! I highly recommend her services generally and especially for newly hired faculty relocating to the LA area! " - Reginald Tucker-Seeley, ScD, April 2017

"My husband and I are relocating from Rhode Island to California and Marcie has been absolutely amazing throughout the entire process of helping us to find our new home. Not only is Marcie incredible at her job, she's also genuinely friendly, thoughtful, and kind and she has a great sense of humor (which we love!). Marcie is an expert at anticipating her client's needs and is always willing to go the extra mile to ensure things go smoothly. We highly recommend Marcie Sabatella!!!

"We are moving from NC and Marcie went out of her way to help us view a number of homes in the LA area. Great knowledge of the market and the possibilities to fit our budget. She has a proactive and well defined strategy in a competitive market. Definitely recommend to anyone thinking of relocating here. " - Eric Jolles, June 2016

"Marcie is a pleasure to work with, professional, insightful as to our priorities, promptly responsive, and knows her market extremely well. She has been a godsend in our process of relocating from Northern California to the Pasadena area. My wife and I are so glad we connected with Marcie! " - Shawn Hansen~ Partner at Nixon Peabody LLP

★★★★★

"I am in the middle of relocating my family from Palo Alto to the Los Angeles area. I don't know the Los Angeles area and have school aged children--intimidating! Marcie is a lifesaver. Everything you could want in an agent and ally--organized, connected, positive, and communicative. Marcie listens to what my husband and I want (and don't want) and finds us examples in multiple areas in multiple price ranges based on what we are looking for, not just what's available. She seems to know everyone and every property in the Pasadena, South Pasadena, San Marino, La Canada Flintridge area! I am excited for this move vs. terrified and Marcie has been a huge part of that. " - Michelle Oldham Hansen, June 2016
