What my clients are saying about me...
"Marla thoughtfully guided us through the process of selling our home with her experience and expertise, making a stressful and difficult process much more manageable. From the moment she walked into our home, helping to take the best possible photographs and giving us hints on how to maximize our home's potential, we knew we were lucky to have found her among the labyrinth of realtors. We consider ourselves fortunate to have worked with Marla, and would highly recommend her services as she not only helped to get our home sold quickly, but her personal and caring approach helped put our minds at ease."
Kurt and Veronica O.
"Marla is warm, friendly and has an enthusiastic attitude. She really listened! She also provided a great orientation to the community and displayed a willingness to go "beyond the call of duty!!"
“Marla was a delight to work with. She brings energy, passion, knowledge and professionalism to her job. She is with you every step of the way. We will be using her again.”
"Marla was a pleasure to work with. Her optimistic personality made my home buying experience a delight. In addition to her positive attitude, she maintained her professionalism and work ethic throughout the entire process. She was always prepared, knowledgeable, and followed through on the many many questions that I had as a first time home buyer. She was patient and guided me through the numerous steps which I was not familiar with.
She was extremely responsive and in tune with my needs. She was flexible to accommodate my schedule with very short notice. She effectively communicated to the seller on my behalf and represented my interests throughout this process. She ensured what the seller promised me was executed.
Marla offered her personal and professional support and opinions while searching for my new home. She was sincere and her intentions were always truthful. She continues to check in with me periodically to see how everything is going. She exceeded all my expectations of a realtor. I would absolutely work with her again in the future and highly recommend her to anyone!"
