This is my second time working with Marsha (on a sale leaving San Francisco, and now on a purchase coming back). Marsha is an extremely dedicated and knowledgeable professional. She was there with us for the entire process. I wasn't a first time home buyer, but the process is still unnerving. It was great to have Marsha guide us throughout the whole thing -- from potential options of lenders to potential issues on resale. She was honest about the homes, pointing out how odd some layouts were, or possible issues that one may not notice on immediate viewing. Marsha continued to be great throughout the closing. She was the quarterback on making sure th...— Mike Schlect
Marsha helped me buy a weekend condo in San Francisco in October, 2006. During a very competitive market, she was able to help me present an offer that the seller accepted over several other offers. In February 2008, Marsha helped me sell that condo and buy a larger home as a primary residence in the City. Again, the San Francisco market was very competitive, and she helped me beat out four other offers to get the property that I wanted. She also sold my weekend condo in eight days, over asking price, with multiple offers. Marsha is very knowledgeable about neighborhoods, and provides excellent guidance and support through the buying and selling pro...— Doug Macbeth
Our experience with you as our Real Estate agent has been so pleasant that we cannot think of using another professional for residential property in San Francisco. You very successfully sold our previous home quickly and for a fair price in an uncertain market. You gracefully and assuredly worked with difficult buyers to complete the transaction to our satisfaction. And, knowing our style and preferences, you tirelessly worked to find a great new property that we love. Never once, during any of the transactions and negotiations did you push us to do something with which we were uncomfortable. Having worked with a number of other realtors over the ye...— Barbara and Lynn Adamson
Thank you for everything you have done in selling our home. You have been amazing and we truly appreciate your hard work, patience and understanding. We have been impressed with you from the start. You were so warm and sweet during our first phone call, and so kind to our baby. We will always remember this time of transitional change as a positive experience because of your professionalism, your lovely demeanor, and your wonderful outlook. Thank you again for taking such good care of us. We will never forget you and hope to keep in touch!— Colleen
Marsha was one of a number of realtors recommended to us. From our first meeting, she demonstrated a strong understanding of the local market, providing a well-researched marketing plan and a realistic assessment of our property’s value. She independently managed the preparation, listing and sale requirements, and updates. Given that we were managing the sale of our home and largest asses from across the country, it was comforting to have someone we trusted acting as our representative.— Nigel & Natalie Glennie
Marsha, thank you so much for all your help in selling our house in San Francisco. You truly went above and beyond to make our house look fantastic, and did a great job of marketing the property. It was an extremely busy time for us and being across the country did not help, but having you as our agent allowed us to relax, knowing we had an amazing realtor that was handling it all with grace and professionalism. We will definitely reach out if we ever make it back to SF!— Anjali and Garish Aakalu
Thank you so much for ALL your help, you went way above and beyond in selling my Telegraph Hill condo. You did an excellent job of market analysis and appropriate pricing that led to an offer in 6 days... exceeding expectations. You also offered good advice and direction so many times. You created a strong plan, priced appropriately, lined everything up and sold at a price that was 5-15% greater than the consensus of four other realtors I had spoken with.— Brad Pruitt
Marsha is a gem of a realtor. Lucky for us she is in San Francisco, and lucky that someone we knew wholeheartedly recommended her. As others have mentioned, she is savvy about the bay area real estate market, prepares a top notch presentation on your behalf and works conscientiously and efficiently. But most of all, her clients benefit from her bubbly, positive approach. She is kind, caring, and ethical. An outstanding realtor.— Mari and Bob Wilson
I cannot say enough positive things about Marsha. She came highly recommended from another friend and boy was I glad that I went with her. She is super experienced (something like 17 years under her belt, which means that she knows what she's doing). She's attentive, patient, hard working, kind, ethical, and someone I have grown to greatly trust. I would highly recommend her.— Justin Wong
Marsha, Thank you so much for all of the time you gave us during this process. Your expertise and kindness made us feel so special! You helped us find the perfect condo that we will enjoy for years to come. We are overjoyed with our condo and your thoughtfulness. We found you through a referral, and will be happy to pass you on to our friends!— Lisa and Aaron Briggs
Dear Marsha, 1 year on and we absolutely love our home and are so thankful for your efforts and professionalism in helping us find it. We'll be starting to look for a condo for mom sometime in the next few months, and would love to work with you again. Let us know if you're roaming around the mission as you're always welcome to pop in.— Brett and Christina Summers
I had the pleasure of working with Marsha and, without question, would choose to work with her again. She was exceptional from start to finish. All of her previous reviews paint a great picture of her, which I concur; knowledgeable, hardworking, organized, communicative, honest and personable. You will be in good hands with Marsha.— Deborah Fazelli
We love you, Marsha. It’s 2017 and we have just completed our 4th transaction with you…buying, selling, buying and now selling. We respect your knowledge and expertise so much, and more importantly, respect and appreciate your friendship. We met you at an Open House 11 years ago. We will absolutely recommend you to our friends.— Doug Macbeth and Stan Deen
Marsha, thank you so much in working with us through the selling process of our family home, all the detail work to get the property ready for sale, the beautiful photos/web page/video and processing the numerous documents. Your hard work is very appreciated. You gave us confidence every step of the way.— The Chow Family
Thank you so much Marsha for all your guidance, your insight, and your thoughtfulness as I went through this process of selling and buying in this crazy San Francisco market! I couldn't have done it without you!— Priya Ganesan
Thank you for all your help. I do not consider myself an easy customer, but you have handled every situation with intelligence, integrity and grace.— David Potts
You are fantastic, Marsha! Thanks again for selling our trust properties at 150 Shakespeare and at 795 14th Avenue in San Francisco.— Chad Proctor
Sincere thanks for all your efforts to sell 420 Bay Street. We couldn't have asked for a better result or more stress-free process.— Bruce & Franklin
