Ratings & Reviews

I had first heard of Marella realty through an advertisement in my local news paper. I was in the Market for a home purchase a solid year before I bought my current house. There were other realtors that I was speaking with, however I became frustrated with them because of lack of communication or I felt they were not listening to the criteria my family was looking for in a home. When I first met Mike Marella I was immediatly at ease and felt that he was in tune to what I was looking for. I knew it wasn't going to be easy finding a home at the price that I was preapproved for. I also did not have access to a computer at any given time being in the construction trades. Mike opened up his office to me and worked around my difficult schedule. He knew my children needed to start in a new school system in September and understood the urgency in having us in our new home with in a few months.We looked at a dozen homes before we found our dream house. Thanks to Marella Realty they made it all happen. I refer Marella Realty to all my Friends, Family and work associates.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Quincy, MA.

One month from listing to closing! Mike Marella is top-shelf. He did an excellent job listing and selling our family's house. He knows the area very well, and was able to pinpoint the price and terms that would attract the right buyers. This home (my grandparents') had been in our family even before my mother was born; we appreciated Mike's sensitivity and kindness to all the memories attached to it. He's a pleasure to work with.

Like a true professional, Mike makes hard work look easy, and he goes the extra mile to make sure all the details are handled correctly and on time. He went above and beyond when technology challenged our buyer's deadlines, and because of Mike's vigilance it all worked out smoothly. My husband and I have purchased and sold two other homes, one in Maryland and one in Virginia, but none as efficiently and satisfactorily as this time. We can't thank him enough.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $350K in Holbrook, MA.

I have had the pleasure of doing business with Mike three times. I bought my first home with him. Mike was very informative and set my husband and I up with a great first time home buyer mortgage officer. We were able to purchase our home with complete ease and no worries back in 1992. The second time I had a multifamily home to sell and again completed transaction with no difficulties in about a month. The third time we were selling our home we bought back in 1992. This time was a bit more challenging with the current market but Mike kept us informed about the market trends and advised us well about pricing and strategy such as staging. He really understood the neighborhoods we were buying and selling in and all the challenges that surrounded the areas. We were having trouble with our buyers losing their financing and Mike stepped up and helped them out with getting them to the right mortgage company and we got it done. I am happy to say we are SOLD and moving on to our next home. Mike is absolutly the right guy to use for every aspect buying, selling, and helping with financing . I would do business with him again and again for all my real estate needs.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Braintree, MA.

Michael Marella guided me through the process of selling my mother's home after her passing. Since I am from out-of-state, this process involved all aspects of the sale (e.g. suggested pricing, taking listing photographs, negotiating selling points and price with the buyer, overseeing closing, etc.). During this entire process, I couldn't have asked for a better professional on my side. Prior to the actual closing, I encountered two major stumbling blocks with the buyer. In both instances, Michael was able to get the buyer over both hurdles through his excellent negotiating skills. I highly recommend Michael Marella to you as an honest, professional, and fair individual who has chosen real estate as his profession.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $275K in South Weymouth, Weymouth, MA.

Mike was very helpful in selling our family home, priced it right, and sold in a timely fashion. He was honest and helped us sell our home quickly, which was my intention.

Sold a home in 2012 in East Braintree, Quincy, MA 02184.

Mike Marella is very professional to deal with. I interviewed 3 brokers before I decided whom to list my house with and selected Mike without hesitation. He is very honest and up front regarding pricing a home to sell quickly at the best price possible. He does his homework regarding researching comps in the area. He has a pleasant personality and does not come across too strong. I look forward to working with Mike to sell my home in the near future and I highly recommend him to other folks who are interested in hiring a broker who will get the job done.

Michael had everything in place for the first open house. We received an offer that evening above market value that went on to an easy stress-free sale. In this economy- are you kidding? I would recommend Michael to anyone! Honest, caring and working for you. Thanks Michael!!!!!
