Marilee is an absolute joy to work with. It would be a 10/10 on that note alone. But when you combine that with her decades of east-bay market knowledge, network of relationships with agents, and finesse of negotiation; it’s all you could ask for and more. If you have the opportunity to have Marilee list your property or help you find a home, you could not be in better hands. -Jordan

Marilee has truly become a friend to me. You have been SO kind and supportive to me during a very emotional time. -Maria

Thank you so much for selling my house. You are a true delight to work with and your professionalisim I hold in such high regard. You will always be highly recommended by me to anyone selling their home. -Mae
