Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Richmond, RI.
Marla, was referred to my wife and I by my Brother who recently worked with her on purchasing a new home. I bring this up because a family reference is the strongest kind and should be a testament to Marla's work ethic and effectiveness as a buyers agent.
Marla was experienced and knowledgable, very professional, and data driven. As first time home buyers, she was instrumental in ensuring we asked the right questions and fully understood the legal complexities of the home buying process.

Loved working with Marla. She is process driven with information and went the extra mile to help educate us on the local market comps with extensive excel worksheets that helped us determine the best offer strategy. After several homes failed our inspections, we finally found our dream home with Marla's help and are very happy. She helped us through the difficult anxious moments of inspections and negotiating with a smile and constant reassurance. What I appreciated most, is she helped keep us focused on our original goals and expectations of a home (location, size, schools, etc). It is easy to get off track and settle for something that may be outside what you really need or want. Marla's approach is "no pressure" and all business, which is what made the process so pleasant for us. Highly recommend Marla.
We must have looked at over 100 homes over the course of 4 months and throughout the entire process, Marla never gave up on us. She was always personable and totally on top of responses. She took the time to learn our likes and dislikes, and was great about recommending properties that were great. I would highly recommend Marla.
Marla takes a market approach with her clients and leveraged appropriate tools through the selling process to help us understand alternatives and set expectations based on current and historical market. She understood the buyers evolution as each house we looked at would slightly change our desired property and took these changes into consideration as we narrowed in to the perfect house. She was proactive through the offer process typically calling just as I began to wonder what should happen next.
