"The California market can be tough to navigate but Marylene did an incredible job of making us feel comfortable and gave us so much support to make our first home purchase in this state. Marylene was so patient and really listened to our needs when searching for a home and found us the exact home we were looking for. She was dedicated to us and made us feel like we were her number one clients. While this wasn't our first home buying experience, this was definitely one of the best and I would use Marylene again."
"I've worked with Marylene on two properties and she has been not only a pleasure to work with but also an intelligent and business savvy agent you want in your corner! Her market knowledge is top notch. Her negotiating skills are sharp. Her availability and response time while working on a property offer is second-to-none. If you're looking for an agent that works very hard, puts your preferences and needs first and follows up, Marylene is your agent! In this market, you need an agent that goes the extra mile. Marylene does so. On top of that, I've spoken with many other agents and she has a VERY strong reputation amongst other agents and brokers. Perhaps that is the most telling! Can't say enough about what a great experience it was working with someone who had my interests placed in the forefront!"
"You want a realtor who knows the market, goes out of her way to accommodate your needs and find the right place that suits You and your needs, who discloses all the facts and numbers to you clearly and always gets back to you right away with all your questions and inquiries then Marylene is the person you should pick. She is a realtor you can trust who will fight for you all the way and she is patient with you to the end. She helped me with buying my apartment and made this stressful process much smoother and easier for me. I highly recommend her."
"Finding Marylene has been a blessing. Her vision, expertise in the real state business and detailed service have been over the top. Being first time home buyers in the Bay Area, she has been the key in finding the right place for us and making sure all the process went smoothly. We have not found just a house but also the real estate professional that we know we want to keep for the future. Her energy, enthusiasm and savoir faire are contagious and invaluable."
"Marylene is a godsend. She is truly a realtor who will fight for you when no one else will. In such a tough market, it is critically important that you find a person who you can trust, will be completely honest, and will keep you calm. I’m sure Marylene was a therapist in a past life to make such a stressful process seem effortless. Marylene is extra helpful for first time home buyers who are confused in the loan process as well. Thank you for everything Marylene!"
"We wanted to give a big shout out for Marylene. This is not our first time buying/selling a home, it's actually our fourth in the bay area. Her services are simply the best, hands down. Marylene is all we've expected from a real estate agent and more. She is super nice. She knows her job and the market. She is extremely responsive, has very insightful observations and is very resourceful. What sets Marylene apart is her commitment to help us not only buy the house we were looking for, but she also accompanied us through the following steps of improving the house and renting it."
"We met Marylene at an open house when we were working with another real estate agent in the area, and immediately knew she was the best agent for us! We switched to her after almost 2 months of searching and she immediately yielded far better results than our first agent. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable about real estate in the Bay Area, but her relationships with other agents, banks, and other professionals all help with her getting the BEST deal for you, regardless if you are buying or selling. She told us once we were in escrow that she would be with us through the entire process...and she certainly was! She even helped us out after we had moved in. This was out of her own volition to provide the best service to us - there was no obligation for her as the deal was already complete. We would recommend her to anyone looking to buy/sell in the area. You will not find a harder working, more well-connected agent!"
"FABULOUS! I work for a real estate investor who works the peninsula and the East Bay, and Marylene does an AMAZING job getting us the best price for all of our properties. She's motivated, hard-working, and super-personable. She also knows the Peninsula real estate market deeply and intensely. She is definitely a superstar agent."
"Being a first home buyer, and being new to the area, it was very helpful having a wonderful agent like Marylene. She is an amazing person and pays attention to details. Before giving the offer, she brought her contractor friend to help us evaluate the house. Even though she was away on a trip due to family emergency, she made sure we were taken care by her colleague. Right after her trip she came back immediately to help us close the deal. She is totally dependable person and guided us throughout the process of purchasing our home."
"This review is long over due because (thanks to Marylene) we’ve been so busy with our new house! Marylene was referred to us by a family member who had nothing but good things to say about their experience working with her. Our home buying search was incredibly lengthy, but Marylene showed true patience and stuck with us through every step. We could count on her to meet us last minute even if it meant going out of her way. As first time homebuyers we were incredibly lucky to have someone like Marylene on our side. She is the most professional, knowledgeable and kind realtor that we’ve ever met. Not to mention that she truly cares and listens to her clients! Thank you so much Marylene!!"
