When choosing a real estate professional, get to know their history!
Below, you'll find information that will help you get to know me better - from awards and credentials I've achieved, to references from past clients.
I consider the satisfaction of my clients to be my greatest achievement, and take pride in my high volume of repeat business and referrals.
"My husband and I just moved to Vancouver last September 06, and we decided to purchase our very first house about a year later. Being extremely naive with the house-buying process, we needed someone who was willing to take the time to explain every detail that was involved when searching for and purchasing a house. Also, we wanted someone who had strong connections with other people in the business, and was able to give us reliable referrals, such as mortgage brokers and lawyers. Lastly, we also needed someone whom we could trust and confide to, since buying a house could be a very personal thing. Marcela was one such realtor and more. She managed to meet all of our needs, and she was able to direct us to the appropriate people if she couldn't otherwise help us. Marcela was constantly in-touch with us to make sure that everything was in place. Marcela's sense of humor, calm demeanor and friendly personality were a plus, especially since this house-buying business could be quite stressful if not handled properly. All in all, we're extremely satisfied with Marcela's services, and we would certainly be happy to recommend her to our friends and family."
Gina & Peter C.
Thank you so much for all your help finding me the perfect place to live. It was such a pleasure working with you and you made the task so easy that everything just seemed to fall into place. I really enjoyed our time together and your relaxed nature kept a stressful situation from feeling anything but. I will definitely point any one I know who is looking to deal in real estate to you. Thanks again and we will certainly be in touch."
"Just a short note to pass along our thanks for your outstanding assistance and support in the purchase of our property. My wife and I have purchased many homes over the years during our travels across Canada and the United States and, as a result, have acquired considerable experience working with real estate agents. We want you to know that you are one of the most professional and engaging agents we have had the opportunity to work with and we sincerely appreciated all you did for us. We felt the success of this particular transaction was, to a large extent, due to you excellent follow-up skills and determination to keep the ball rolling. Again, thank you for your first-rate services."
Sanda & George V.
"You did an outstanding job for us and we are very grateful. Marcela - your staging was fabulous - I look at the pictures on the web and I'm wondering why I'm moving out! Also, you were right on the money about the potential buyer for the house. Thanks for getting us the extra 10K this morning - I was about to let it go but you stood firm. Overall strategy to underprice and sell over asking worked well - I must thank Nicole for pushing me to follow your good advice. So, it's kind of funny but I am going to miss this house, especially with the new carpet, paint and furniture!"
"Mike and I had a wonderful experience with Marcela. From the first day we met, she listened to our needs, found properties that we were interested in, was extremely informative and communicated very well. With her help we bought our first dream home and couldn't be happier."
"The experience of buying your first home can be overwhelming, but Marcela was always there to guide us through the process with a professional and personal approach that went above and beyond. I'm sure my husband and I could not have worked with a better agent, and we are continually grateful for Marcela's caring attitude, knowledge and support."
"Never dealt with such a personable person even in a real estate agent. Very patient and understanding when it came to my needs. Found exactly what I was looking for and extremely attentive. I will never use another real estate agent, have had many and never had an experience like this felt like she was part of the family and not just trying to “earn a buck”."
"About a month ago I was using an agent who came recommended by a family friend. In the end I had to search for a new realtor as I wasn't getting any closer to finding a home and didn't think my current agent understood fully what my needs were. Marcela found me my dream condo in 3 days... She was attentive, she listened to my long list of requirements and was always available to answer my questions... I would recommend her to anyone!"
"Marcela help me, and my girlfriend find a place in Burnaby! In a market where we kept getting beat out by other offers it was nice to find Marcela who helped found our apartment on our first offer with her!"
