"Marc did an excellent job of finding a luxury condo for us and, as important, negotiated a great deal on our behalf. It was always clear that he was working in our interests, which is unusual for an agent, and I suspect that is because he spends much of his time as a principal and not an agent." - Andrew S.

"Marc helped me get a great deal on an off market home in Menlo Park. He shepherded me through the process, both keeping me well informed and offering his expert advice. His instincts helped me close quickly and for the right price. An unexpected bonus was that Marc has followed up several times since then to make sure the transition to ownership was still smooth. What a great guy!" - Matt D.

" Marc was very proactive in helping us sell our investment property. It was a complicated process, given that we had a tenant in place. He was diligent in communicating with all parties and stayed with the process until the end. " - Christi

"I worked with Marc for nearly a year! He made himself very available to discuss whichever location and price point options were potentially available both on and “off” market and toured a great variety of homes with me up and down the Peninsula. Many times, he rearranged his schedule to be present and was incredibly responsive to my emails, calls, and texts.

He made insightful recommendations during the bidding process, and worked strategically to incorporate my preferences into the offers and the ultimate contract! After “losing out” on six offers, we finally found and negotiated for the purchase of the single-family home and yard I had dreamed of.

Marc fiercely advocated for me when negotiating with listing agents and kept my hopes up after receiving rejection on a half-dozen failed offers. Thank, God! Ultimately, we found and acquired the gem and my first California home. This never would have happened without him. Whether buying or selling, I would strongly suggest having Marc on your team.
" - Dr. Juliana

"If it weren't for Marc's expertise, my husband and I would not of found an affordable home in the Bay Area. We never owned a home before, were on a tight budget, and were trying to compete with other bidders in buying a home with a veteran's loan! We didn't have much going for us to say the least, but Marc took us head on and advised us well. Within a couple of months, I couldn't believe it! We were sitting down at the closing, signing papers to our first home. It was because of Marc's networking skills and professional relationships that we were able to find a home that both fit our needs and in the area that we were targeting! We couldn't be more grateful for Marc's directional expertise and we couldn't be happier with our home. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Marc to either sell or buy your home. He has a good heart, listens well to your needs, overly accessible, very informative, extremely invested in getting the job done, but most importantly, someone that we could trust. Realtors like this don't come around often!" - Tanya B.
