Bought a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Highlandtown, Baltimore, MD.
Marci helped my husband and I buy our first home. We had to find a place in a weekend since we were relocating from out of state. Marci fit us into her schedule quickly and spent a lot of time taking us through various parts of the city, which we found extremely helpful. Her knowledge of Baltimore was apparent as was her fondness for the city. I felt like she really hustled to help us find a good home and I believe this was Marci's best strength.
Marci knows a great deal about the home buying process and I trusted everything she said. Whenever she did provide information it was extremely helpful and accurate. However, sometimes I felt as though her expertise wasn't shared with us as well as it could have been. The trouble was that we needed more detailed information since this was our first time buying a home and we were moving to a new city. If this wasn't our first time purchasing a house I probably wouldn't have minded Marci's quickness with some of her responses.
I don't know the extent of negotiating Marci engaged in on our behalf and for that reason I am rating her average.
Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $125K in Baltimore, MD.
Marci was incredibly responsive, knew the areas I was looking for well, and was better able to deduce what I needed/wanted out of a house than I was able articulate. She made the process so easy and took care of everything for me, trying to keep me as stress free as possible. She has many contacts to help with post-settlement needs as well (ie: flooring contractors, movers, etc...)
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $75K in Baltimore, MD.
She emailed listings daily & was available to look at houses as needed. Very pleasant to work with and knowledgeable about the listings. She helped us buy our first single family home and we appreciated it very much!

Thank you for the kind words. You were both a pleasure to work with and I hope you have years of happiness in your new place together!

I bought my first house from Marci in 2005. Marci's knowledge of the entire city and all of the neighborhoods opened my eyes to some areas I would have never known about or even considered. As a result I ended up buying in an area that was not as mainstream but has weathered the market far better then some other neighborhoods. She was very aware of my budget and encouraged me to stay slightly below it. When it came time to negotiate we were dealing with a very difficult seller who had not fully disclosed his situation. When the seller could not settle on time and I would have been living in a hotel Marci's knowledge of the contract and negotiating skills helped me get into the house with a one month pre-settlement occupancy at the sellers expense! It was a very stressful and she remained calm, did what she could to keep me calm and really represented my best interests. I have since referred several friends to her and have had her rent and list other properties that have purchased. When she lists a home she always uses a professional photographer and I think it helps my places sell/rent quickly. I tend to work long crazy hours and she was always available to take my calls early in the day and later at night. She is an honest straight shooter who will tell you the truth even if its not what you want to hear.

Marci is a straight-shooter. Engulfed in the mix of emotions and chaos home shopping can stir up, her honesty and straightforwardness helped me to clear the air, and remember the important points I wanted and needed in a home. She is responsive and gets the job done, quickly.
Bought a Single Family home in 2004 for approximately $100K in Westfield, Baltimore, MD.
Marci helped negotiate a difficult foreclosure transaction for me back in 2004 when foreclosures were far less common transactions for the average buyer — she really made sense of a lot of jargon and legalities most buyers had never heard at the time. Based on that fact alone, a simple sale is surely a breeze for her. I was also a relocation client, and therefore I needed recommendations on Baltimore neighborhoods that fit my lifestyle as well as budget — she really hit the mark and saved me a lot of time. 7 years later and knowing the city myself at this point, I can't think of a better fit than the place Marci suggested for me. Marci's expertise on all fronts is superlative. Whether you are buying or selling, there is no doubt that Marci will go above and beyond to help you have a smooth real estate experience.
Marci is an agent that has the needs of her client in mind from start to finish. She's indredibly knowledgeable about the Baltimore area and helped me to find an area of the city in which she knew I would be really happy. She was thoughtful and proactive when it looked like we weren't going to sell my condo in the time that I needed to, so she was able to lease it and find a tenant and that relieved a lot of stress for me.
Marci worked to bring this short sale to our attention. She came through on everything she promised and responded to our every need. Also, anyone who loves dogs as much as we do is ok by us! She has a good soul.
