"Even in January, in the middle of a down market, Marissa got the job done. We heeded her advice and in the first 10 days had 3 bids. Then during escrow, while dealing with some ridiculous demands from the buyers, Marissa kept her cool and kept the sale moving forward. That's the type of agent you need during the stressful process of selling your home!"
