My husband and I listed our home with Marela after it had been on the market for over a year with very little activity and no offers. At the time, she was an acquaintance of mine who was relatively new to real estate. While I had faith that her outgoing personality, positive attitude, familiarity with the area, and intelligence would attract buyers, she more than exceeded my expectations. She gave great advice, kept us updated every step of the way, and exposed our home as much as possible through modern technology, luncheons, open houses, social networking, and many other means. She was always available with prompt, knowledgeable responses every time I called on her. To me, it feels like Marela is not in the business solely for commission, but for the challenge of selling homes, meeting new people, and pleasing others. Most importantly, she made selling our house seem quick and easy. I highly recommend her.
