Bought a Single Family home in 2003 for approximately $650K in Willow Glen, San Jose, CA.

My wife and I worked with Marcella to purchase our first home in Willow Glen. She provided exceptional service, and was easily accessable when we had questions or concerns. Highly recommend.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $750K in Cambrian Park, San Jose, CA.

Marcella helped us find and buy a home in mid-2010. She is extremely good at figuring out what we were looking for in a house within our budget, then narrowing down the plethora of listings to visit those houses that we were most likely to be interested in. Marcella is very direct, which we absolutely loved: she would point out the good and the bad in every house, and wouldn't sugar-coat any potential problems. In one particularly impressive moment, Marcella gently pointed out to my wife that what my wife said she wanted in a home, and what she positively reacted to in the homes we visited, were actually different things. That candor and insight was extremely valuable in our search.

When we did find "the home", we ended up in a multiple-offer situation the first business day after the home officially went on the market. Even though ours was not the highest offer, Marcella managed to seal the deal, and we've loved our home ever since then.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $750K in Cambrian Park, San Jose, CA.

Marcella was extremely helpful with helping us find our current home. She took the time to let us tour several different types of homes, which helped us understand what we wanted. There was a time when I liked a house that was perfectly staged, and Marcella - who is very direct - told us this was not the house for us (the kitchen was separate from the rest of the area, which would not be conducive to future, planned children). Marcella wasn't trying to just make a sale, but instead tailored our experience to find the best house that fit our priorities and budget. When we found our house, Marcella went to bat and won the offer for us, at a lesser price than the other bidder! (We were able to offer a more flexible moving schedule). I've already referred friends to Marcella, and plan to call her if we decide to move in the future. She is bright, kind, hard-working, knowledgable, and very good at finding homes that match the buyer's priorities. An understated strength of hers is negotiation; even though the house of your dreams is for sale, it doesn't mean you'll win the bidding war. Marcella proved herself as an expert negotiator in our experience and a few friends' experiences, too. We cannot recommend Marcella enough.  More Less
