Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $575K in North Loop, Minneapolis, MN.
Primary point of contact: Janelle Murlowski
Marissa and Janelle were great to work with. Its cliche to say, but they really did make the process so easy and enjoyable. They were very flexible and able to meet on our schedule. They were able to show us listings that weren't even on the market. With their connections they were able to get us in to places last minute. And finally, when it came to the negotiations and final price, they were able to get our home for less than what we were afraid we'd have to pay.

Marissa and Janelle were both extremely helpful in my buying a condo! They were accessible, flexible, and aggressive in getting showings and were able to get me a pretty good purchase price. I was extremely satisfied with the whole experience and would definitely recommend them and DRG to anyone looking for a new home.

Marissa and her team provided what I honestly say is the best real estate search and purchase experience we have ever had. Her knowledge of the area and each property there are incredible, and the responsiveness she and her colleagues displayed in every instance was unmatched. We had missed out on several properties we were interested in before finding Marissa. Not only did we get the one we wanted at the right price, but she steered us away from several of the buildings we had previously tried to buy in due to issues that our previous agent was unaware of. Her team stays on top of the process from first looks to post-closing, always responsive, knowledgable, and friendly. I hope I never have to do another downtown Minneapolis transaction without their help.

I've worked with Marissa on two condo purchases and the sale of a condo as well - she is a pleasure to work with, extremely knowledgeable, and very responsive. I especially appreciate how open/honest she is - she is really someone I trust and will continue to work with. I would highly recommend working with Marissa!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Saint Louis Park, MN.
I can't say enough about how great the process was working with Marissa and her team. This was my first purchase of a home and I couldn't have asked for a better experience! From the initial contact they www helpful, friendly, and professional. I got a sense that she truly loved what she was doing and it showed in her work. They stay in contact whenever is most convenient I would email at 10:00pm and most of the time I'd get a response the same night. I liked how she listened to what I was looking for in a home and was able to make suggestions based on my likes and dislikes. They set up showings based on my schedule and when I found something I liked they were great at negotiating a fair deal.
Marissa helped me buy a condo that I absolutely love. She is excellent at communicating and walks her clients through the entire process. She definitely goes above and beyond what you would expect of a realtor. I would definitely use her again and would have no reservations recommending her to someone.
Marissa (and her sister Janelle!) was excellent to work with from day one. She is extremely knowledgeable of the Minneapolis area and the entire home buying process. She knew the exact type of home I was looking for and always made great recommendations for places to look at! She was always very responsive and never let a question go unanswered. I will definitely recommend her to a friend or family member looking to buy or sell a home in the future.
Bought a Multi Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Sheridan, Minneapolis, MN.
From the first phone call to Marissa & until the day we closed, I found her to be so responsive, efficient & extremely professional. She knew within one day of viewing what kind of property I wanted & narrowed it down in a very timely & effective way.
When I found the property I liked, Mariasa went to work very quickly on negotiating the price to a point that was very satisfactory for me. Even when we got the price down, Marissa continued to negotiate it down further which I didn't expect.
I would work with Marissa on any property again & recommend her to anyone looking for a property.
The experience with Marissa Skaja was beyond expectations. She was very responsive to all inquiries. The property was presented to potential buyers with appeal and professionalism. Highly recommend Marissa and her team to all customers, whether buying or selling.
Professional. Knowledgeable. Helpful. I moved out of the Minneapolis area but if I ever come back would definitely work through Marissa again. I thought it would be difficult selling a home from a far but it was much easier with her and her sister's help. We also closed pretty fast for the market which was a big plus for me. A+
