Named #1 Top Producer 2013 KW (28 years experience)
You cannot ask for a better person to sell your house. Marianne pays attention to all aspects of the transaction, up to and including dealing with family craziness and outrageous demands. I would never do it again...but if I had to, I wouldn't do it without Marianne.
Mariaane is a true professional who has indept knowledge of her field. She is Courteous and patient and has excellent negotiation skills. I would highly recomend her and will use her services again if needed.
Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $275K in North Andover, MA.
We first contacted Marianne about two years ago when we first started thinking about moving based on reviews we'd read online. Marianne came to our house to meet with us and after that meeting, we found no need to contact anyone else. When it came time to sell our house and buy a new one, Marianne jumped right in and ended up helping us through some very complicated transaction details. We spent countless hours on the phone with her at all times of the day, work week or weekend end. She went so far above and beyond and worked some miracles. We had 5 offers after our open house with all around or well above asking! She referred us to a very good attorney who also did an amazing job for us. I would refer anyone and everyone to use Marianne and there's a reason that she's #1 in her large Keller Williams office. She knows the North Andover and surrounding area very well and is a top agent in the market.
I had been working with a realtor in Mass who was not able to show me property in NH. I met Marianne Avila from browsing on the internet.
Unlike a few of the other realtors that I had left messages for Marianne called me back right away and was able to get me in to look at the property I wanted to look at that night.
I can honestly say I will recommend Marianne to all of my family & friends. Marianne is very professional & friendly & very efficient with her work. Number one thing for me is to have someone be honest & on top of their game when it comes to business. I would use Marianne again myself but I do not plan on moving again. I love the HOME she sold me!!
Marianne Avila sold our daughter’s house last summer. She said Marianne was very helpful and compassionate as our daughter was going through a divorce and left to sell the house on her own. Her house sold very quickly, thanks to Marianne’s expertise in the current real estate market. When we were finally ready to sell our family home, where we had lived for the past 35 years, we gave Marianne a call. When she first came to our home, she was so warm and friendly. We took to her right away. She had a lot of suggestions as to what improvements we could do to make our home more saleable. We ended up taking her good advice and doing almost all of the updates she suggested. I remember I had asked her if she could sell the house before the first of the year. She answered very confidently, yes, most definitely.
We had to hire a stager because most of our furniture was already moved out. Marianne recommended a few. We hired Monique Barnum, of Serenity Designs. Monique did a super job of staging our home at a very affordable cost. By the time we had done the improvements and staging, it was almost the end of October. We thought that the timing was against us, with the holidays just around the corner. Not so, says Marianne. Marianne took many wonderful pictures and put together a virtual tour that really showcased our home. We had wanted to set a price that was higher than what Marianne had suggested. Of course, everyone thinks their house is worth more than it actually is. Marianne had a very good idea of what our home should sell for but she very graciously met us in the middle. Well, of course, we later found out, after 2 open houses with no offers, Marianne was the expert and she knew what the right price should be. Not long after, we got an offer and closed on the sale less than 2 months from the first day the house was on the market.
Everyone in Marianne’s office was a pleasure to work with. Carol Whitley, was wonderful, answering all our questions through emails and phone calls, promptly and professionally. Amanda Bruen, although we didn’t work with her as often as Marianne and Carol, was very helpful, ready and willing to answer any questions we had. Our lawyer, Doug Mercurio, also recommended by Marianne, was great, handling all the legal matters, and finishing off the deal with a very smooth closing. All in all, we couldn’t have had a better experience with the sale of our home. Marianne Avila is a wonderful realtor, who is an expert at her business, who listens to what your concerns are, truly cares about her clients, and makes the sale or purchase of your home a rewarding experience.
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $225K in Lawrence, MA.
Marianne is amazing. We sold and bought our new home within 15 business days. She does not mess around! She has superb negotiating skills and will do whatever she has to to ensure you get the deal you want. She is awesome at staging homes to get them to sell and works well w/ other agents and builders/contractors. I went through 2 other agents before I finally called Marianne after i received a referal from one of her past clients. it was the best phone call i ever made!
Sold a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $375K in North Andover, MA.
Marianne made me feel like I was her only client; this is the highest recommendation I can make. She goes WAY beyond the call of duty, and holds others in the process accountable. While in the process of buying 1601 Salem st., my car went into the shop for an extended period. I rented a small economy car - when Marianne saw it she insisted I use HER car if there was a time I would be driving with clients in my own business! That's really exceptional and much appreciated.
I have bought and sold with three other agents before I had the pleasure of meeting Marianne. Everything went very smooth, Every phone call was returned, and being a single father worked well around my schedule. And if she wasn't still married, I would ask her. Very nice person.

If you are lucky to have Marianne Avila has your real estate agent you will not be sorry. When we first met her she explained everything that should be done will help in the sale of our home. She showed us how to stage your home so it would be very inviting to a potential buyer. In fact it looked really good, it showed how much space that there really so the potential buyer could visualize their furniture in the home. It worked because Marianne put our home on sale on a late Friday afternoon and it was sold the very next day. That's right I said the very next day. The first couple that saw it bought it. She also got us the price we had asked for. Not only did our home sell, Marianne helped us buy our new home that we are in now. She got the price down for us in this home. I hope that you use Marianne as your agent because she really does look out for everyone that she deals with.Good luck with your search. With the help of Marianne you should be out of your old home and in your new home very soon. Good luck!
Marianne is competent, honest and easy to work with. She skillfully led us through the process of selling our home and purchasing the one we are in today.
We've bought and sold many homes over the years and worked with many brokers in several States. I can easily say Marianne is the best.
I would and have recommend
