Marites provided an exceptional service to us, even more so when you take into account that we were first time home buyers. She took an active role in working within the stringent parameters that we gave her for finding a place, and was excellent about communicating with us via phone and email when she found a listing of interest for us to take a look at. She was very focused on the budget that we had set out, and was able to find us a home under our targeted budget that met all the criteria that we were looking for. In our minds this was nothing short of amazing. We are both extremely happy with our new home, which was only possible with the dedication and sincerity that Marites provided. Thanks again Marites!

Simply put, my dream house would not be a reality if it wasn’t for Marites. Most people would run when they see a first time home buyer, with a long wish list, who is overly competitive, a fast mover and hard to please. Not Marites! She embraced the challenge I placed in front of her.
Right from the beginning, she was concerned about my needs – not only what I wanted in a house, but how I was doing throughout the process. She made herself available to both my family and myself, to answer any questions we had, to act as our advocate, and to fight for what we wanted. She opened my eyes to new possibilities. She asked questions to make me think about what I really wanted. She listened – to my concerns, my dreams and my excitement.
Marites is the perfect mix of fun and professional, of easy-going and a fighter, and of results driven and process oriented. Your success is truly her success.
A realtor with strong character, class and charisma – there is no one I would recommend but Marites. She is a true gift to those she works with and I couldn’t be more blessed to call her my friend.
It was my first time selling and Marites made my experience simple and hassle-free. We got multiple offers and sold for more than asking price in just 2 days! She knows how to do business with professionalism, patience and with just the right amount of aggressiveness to get the job done. She took care of everything in an efficient manner and put my worries to rest throughout the entire process. I think I got spoiled because now I expect the same kind of top-notch experience with any other realtor (back home in America). She definitely knows what she's doing, and I know anyone who does business with her will be well taken care of!"

I was a first time homebuyer when I was introduced to Marites. The first time I met her, I thought to myself, "Hmmm... young realtor. I wonder..." Oh, but was I ever wrong! Marites' youth belies her dedication, knowledge and better-than-a-veteran realtor's work ethic. I feel that I am very lucky to have her as my realtor. She took me into her "wing" and took care of me like she would her own mother. Every time I asked Marites to go house-hunting with me, she always had time for me — it felt like I was her only client, and that the world revolved around me.
With Marites, everything was possible — everything was doable. She introduced me to people that could help me pursue my dream of buying a home - that is why, when I had set my heart on buying my home now, I called her and my mortgage broker - my "Dream Team". There was no advice that Marites gave me that turned out badly. I am just so thankful I had a realtor like her — conscientious, hardworking, methodical, intelligent, sensitive, empathetic, sincere, patient and honest. She told me without mincing her words when a property was not a good buy. For this, she has saved me a lot of time and pointed me to one that was the best for me according to my budget and personal requirements.
I put Marites through a lot of work — dealing with collapsed offers, listening to me ask the same questions... But she was the same person whether a deal went through or not. I would definitely ask Marites to buy and sell my property for me in the future. I cannot think of anyone else to deal with — she took care of my business, like it was her own business; like I was family. She is definitely in the "Will do business with her again category" in my book. When my friends ask me who my realtor is, I definitely recommend her to them. One thing I know about Marites — she will not disappoint. She is definitely someone you can trust.
Within 3 weeks of listing our home with Marites, we had 4 offers and our home sold within 99% of our asking price. Marites has an amazing work ethic and is obviously committed to providing quality service. She has exceeded our expectations and we would gladly refer her to our friends and family.
My first time home buying experience was an excellent one, and it was all thanks to Marites. She genuinely keeps her client’s best interest a top priority, and goes the extra mile to make sure everything is perfect. I told her what I was looking for in a home, and she took care of the rest. She understood my requirements and quickly found my “perfect home”, and with her aggressive negotiating, closed on an amazing foreclosure sale more than $20,000 below market value, if not more! She knows the process inside-out and takes care of every detail without delay, which can make the difference between getting the place you want and losing it. Marites has all the experience and qualities that a buyer wants in a Realtor — it’s no wonder why she has been deemed “Top Producer”. Marites is someone you want playing for your team.
We met with our banker on a Saturday, he referred us to Marites and the following day we met her. She had a binder ready full of information for us, which was very well explained. As this was our first place we were very apprehensive and of course worried. Marites put us at ease the moment we met her and made us feel so welcome. She made sure we understood everything that we needed to know.
That night we received a couple listings via our email all which followed our requirements. We made a date to check out some places on Thursday during the same week. Friday morning — we put in our first offer! We fell instantly in love with what she found. It was gorgeous, exactly to our specs!!! We were so impressed with how well she was able to keep our guidelines...
Marites knocked our socks off with her abilities. She comes off as this sweet young lady but when push comes to shove, she shoved the seller down... her technique was very aggressive and she was able to maneuver the whole deal in our favor! In less than 2 weeks everything was settled. Marites had no problem showing us just how much she could accomplish in such little time.
We now have our very first place that actually feels like HOME! Thank You!

It was truly our pleasure working with Marites on the purchase of our new home. Any time we asked for anything, she was already on it. She is very professional, and with her great attitude and sense of humour, making our purchase was truly a joy. We now consider her not only our Realtor, but also a friend. If everybody we dealt with in life was as "on the ball" as Marites, life would be a lot easier.
We would truly recommend Marites to anyone requiring complete real estate service!

We had an enjoyable time working with you, even though Poochi (our dog) broke your shoe. Thanks for your professionalism and patience. We will gladly recommend your services to friends and family. Thanks for the big gift. It was very thoughtful and of course, the house too.

You're an outstanding professional in a field that is difficult, demanding, and requires a successful agent to wear many hats; banker, mediator, negotiator, and tour guide, to name a few. Your tireless efforts on my behalf place you at the top of your chosen profession.
I love my new home and just wanted to take a moment to say what a pleasure it has been having you represent me in my recent purchase. You spent over 2 months showing me places in the area that I selected. Always willing to help and be there for me when I needed something or had a question to ask. You're thorough, reliable, and dedicated to exceeding expectations with superior work qualities more and more difficult to find these days. Thanks for all you have done for me.
When I started looking into purchasing my first home, I was overwhelmed with all the decisions and different options available to me. I thought I would never be able to find the type of home I was looking for... until I found Marites. She made the entire process so easy to understand and she really went that extra mile to make sure everything was perfect. I can't even believe I’ve been in my new home almost a month now, and it is exactly what I wanted. Thank you Marites! You’re the best!
You've been a blessing to us this Christmas. Our words are not enough to say "Thank You" for helping us to own a house...

We would like to thank you for making our first new home purchase so simple and enjoyable. You basically prepared everything for us and we didn't need to worry about a thing. All we had to do was pick a place and sign. :)
