  • We choose Marcellina to sell our condo and she exceeded all of our expectations. She made the entire process so easy for us and sold our home in record time! At our first interaction with her she had all of our marketing materials ready for us to review. She was organized and very easy to communicate with - quick to respond and always keeping us updated. I loved how she used DocuSign, it made this real estate transaction so much easier than printing, scanning and emailing back. Choose Marcellina as your next real estate agent she won’t disappoint and will make the process extremely smooth! Thank you Marcellina! :)
  • My husband and I have worked with several realtors over the years and we can honestly say that Marcellina was the best. She was honest and forthright, incredibly knowledgeable in all real estate matters and always a real professional. She encouraged us to go the extra mile with appraisals and estimates, which always proved beneficial to us in the long run. She talked us through some very scary moments and expertly steered us towards our dream of owning a home in Santa Cruz County. In the past, some realtors were not as available once the sale was made, but not so with Marcellina. Even after we had moved into our lovely new home, she frequently stayed in touch, making sure that everything was going well and offering further assistance, as needed. It is of interest to note that all those who worked with Marcellina in the purchase and loan for our home made the same comments about her, namely, that they “loved working with her and wished more realtors had her exemplary qualities and expertise”. We would be hard-pressed to find anyone better!
  • Marcellina spent over two years helping us find the right home. Her research and due diligence were complete and thorough. We appreciated her patience in showing us many properties without pressure to buy. Over this time Marcellina has also become our friend.

  • I had my experiences with realtors in the past and often felt rushed to make such a big decision. It was so great to find Marcellina. She not only was extremely knowledgeable of the market and did her homework, but she was a true professional and skilled negotiator. I would highly recommend her to my friends and family in the market to sell or find the perfect home.
