We have been working with Marlene for a few years now. She is incredibly knowledgeable and experienced, and her advice has been immensely beneficial to our family. Always pleasant and optimistic, she knows how to get things done and has helped us through some difficult situations with amazing results. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a real estate professional; for anything else, she knows exactly who you need to get in touch with.
A few months back I began looking to relocate from Chicago to California. While I was searching on line, by a chance of luck, I met Bryan. He became my "California eyes" in my search. He understood, completely, what I was looking for and diligently began his search to find it .....and he did!!!! Unfortunately this review only allows a five star recommendation. Bryan is definitely a ten.
I was very impressed with Marlene and her whole staff. She helped me complete short sales on two rental properties. It was a very complicated situation. But she guided me through the whole process, was very responsive when I had questions or called, always gave me solid advise, and saw the transactions through to the end. I would definitely recommend her and her whole staff to anyone in need of her services.
We met at one of his listings and when I was ready to sell my house, he was the first one to contact. He and his team took care of everything! Bryan was very professional in helping me find my "vacation home" and went as far as helping me with my loan paperwork. I would highly recommend him for anyone needing to either downsize or purchase a home!
We had an absolutely wonderful time working with Marlene on finding our new home in Orange County. From her daily housing snapshots, to her extensive knowledge of the areas we were looking in, Marlene made house hunting quite enjoyable for us as we were living in the San Francisco area at the time. She always responded promptly to our calls, emails, texts and we felt she really had our best interest at heart and fought for us to get our dream home. Her professionalism, industry knowledge and experience, and above all, her wonderfully pleasant and warm demeanor helped us stay stress-free while embarking on this new chapter in our lives.
We are extremely grateful to have worked with Bryan Suarez while looking for our new home. Bryan was very professional, knowledgeable, and took the time to understand what we were looking for. Bryan was always on time, and always communicating. With the market being what it is (over-inundated with homes going quickly), he would go the extra mile to preview properties for us which saved us so much time and was so appreciated. Bryan also shared helpful tips and knew all the right questions to ask about a home that may not have crossed our minds. Bryan's attitude and character made the difference when we may have been discouraged wanting to find the perfect home. He knew it was right around the corner! We highly recommend Bryan if you would like someone who shows up from the start to finish!
I met Marlene a couple of years ago and while I knew she was a realtor, I had no idea how much of an asset she was to the home buying process until we purchased our home. Marlene goes above and beyond. Not only was Marlene and her team patient during the process of house hunting, she was phenomenal during the escrow phase. I never imagined buying a home would be so overwhelming. Marlene had all the resources we needed and provided a lot of support during the process. We have quite a few realtors in our circle of friends and I am so happy we chose Marlene, her and her team will take great care of you, you will not be disappointed.
At first, I contacted Bryan to help me find a home for purchase. From the first day I contacted him, I knew he would work his hardest to find me a place that would make me and my kids happy. Bryan listened and took into consideration everything I needed. After a few weeks, I changed gears and looked into places to rent. Bryan would notify me of places available and within a week he found a place for me. He worked with the listing agent to set up a time for us to meet and I was signing lease papers 2 days later! I'm extremely thankful I had his help and will definitely use him in my future real estate needs.
I have done business with several brokers in the past and I have never been as happy as when I had the pleasure of meeting Marlene Waterhouse.
I was in a difficult and stressful situation. I was involved in a 1031 exchange where I had sold an apartment building in West L.A. and had 45 days to find a replacement property. The previous realtor I worked with had given me the address of 7 properties, told me to go and take a look from the outside and asked me to call him back if I found anything I liked and wanted him to write an offer!
Nothing met my qualifications and I was getting pretty desperate.
By chance, I saw Marlene's company advertised on the Internet. I explained my situation to her. She immediately explained to the clients she was working with that she had a situation that required immediate attention. She didn't waste any time, and after finding out what my requirement were, she started looking for a lot of properties within my price range.
Marlene had a lot of patience with me and constantly reassured me that we would find just what I wanted. She personally took me around, showed me several houses and condos and before the deadline, managed to find me 2 beautiful properties and write offers that were accepted.
I consider Marlene highly professional, patient and sweet. On a scale of 1 to 10, she rates 100!
Bryan and his team helped sell my house and I had a great experience! The twilight open house with candles, wine and cheese was a great idea. That was the night we found our buyer. The photos on Zillow that were taken at sundown helped sell the house. They were easy to work with. Answers all your phone calls. When you’re in escrow and all confused his team will help explain everything that is happening. I would recommend Bryan and his team to anyone I know that is moving! In fact, I have already done so with my neighbors. So if you’re moving, call Bryan and you will not be sorry! They will work so hard for you. Thank you Bryan so much!
We needed to sell a rental property so we hired Marlene Waterhouse and her team as they came highly recommended. Her expertise was evident … not only did they help our tenant find new a new place to rent, Marlene helped determine what repairs and upgrades would be needed to insure a quick sale. Taking her advice enabled us to sell our property with minimal down time - allowing us very little out-of-pocket expenses - PLUS the property sold for more than asking! The fact that she was always available to answer any questions was truly appreciated. I would use her again.
My fiancé and I had the pleasure of doing business with Mr. Bryan Suarez this month! Because of his knowledge and familiarity of south Orange County we signed our documents to our new home this past Saturday. Buying, selling, leasing etc is not always fun or easy, a lot goes into it, but I can promise you he will definitely alleviate the process! I couldn't say enough positive things about his business ethics and promptness. Thanks again Bryan,
Marlene sold my house, she was amazing! The twilight open house with candles, wine and cheese was a great idea. That was the night we found our buyer. The photos on Zillow that were taken at sundown helped sell the house. All of this was Marlene's idea. She is easy to work with. Answers all yourphone calls. When your in escrow and all confused Marlene will explain it to you. When you want to scream Marlene's there to help you thru to the end. She is there moping the floor and packing and carting boxes if that's what it takes. I would recommend Marlene to any one I know that is moving! In fact I have already done so with my neighbor. So if your moving. Call Marlene you will not be sorry. By the time your house is sold she will make you feel like your friend. She will have worked so hard for you. Thank you Marlene so much!
Bryan was the consummate professional and I couldn't imagine having anybody help me to find my new home. Having had a bad experience with our previous real estate agent trying to push us in a direction we didn't necessarily want to go in, I was shocked by his ability to actually listen to what we truly wanted in our new home. This was evident when Bryan showed helped us to find multiple homes which we truly fell in love with. We finally settled on one which, after having lived here for 2 years, has just been the perfect home for our family. It has every single characteristic we wanted other than being close to the ocean (which honestly was mostly a pipe dream on our part due to budget limitations). Overall, Bryan helped to make our home buying experience enjoyable, which was a breath of fresh air having had a bad experience with our previous agent. For anyone looking to buy a house I can personally vouch that Bryan will do whatever he possibly can do to please his clients and find you you're dream home. While I can't attest to his skills in selling your real estate, I can't imagine that he'd be anything other than great at that as well.
Marlene has been an excellent partner in selling our home and finding a new home for my family and I. She is very knowledgeable and shares her knowledge to make the process of selling and buying a house stress free. She genuinely cares for her clients and wants the best for them and is willingly to do whatever it takes to insure a successful sale and purchase. We got top dollar for our home and I believe Marlene was a major part of that. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an agent for either the sale or purchase of a home.
Bryan is very professional and attentive to his clients. He listens to your specific needs and works his way to send only relevant properties and follows up deligently. He will never rush you into buying properties that does not meets your criteria even after showing several of them.
Truly enjoyed working with Marlene on the purchase of my property in south San Clemente. It was a probate//short sale situation so it was rather complicated compared to a normal purchase transaction. Marlene was very communicative and did a solid job keeping the process on track. I would certainly recommend her.
To whom it may concern: I Hector and Margie Camargo do highly recommend Bryan Suarez to all my friends and family he and his great skills help us through the viewing process of properties he made everything more convenient for us on our wants and don't wants indeed he was a great help.i highly recommend a 5 star rating indeed. we were extremely happy with the viewing process. thank you kindly indeed.
Bryan is always extremely professional. His knowledge and connections go a long way in this whole process. While buying and selling can be very nerve wracking, he had simply made this experience hassle free and even enjoyable. I cannot recommend Bryan enough for any services you may need.
I was really satisfied and pleased with the help and support I received as Bryan Suarez helped me find my home. He was always persistent and knew exactly how to help me find a stable and beautiful home in a wonderful neighborhood. Very smart, young and intelligent man and definitely knows what he's doing. I recommend him to whoever needs any assistance with any of their future endeavors and property searching. Thanks Bryan, you rock!
When working with Bryan and trying to find a home, when it's last inning down by 2 with 2 men on and Bryan at the plate and you need the homerun. Yes along those lines. Bryan absolutely delivered with ease. I would recommend him to all future buyers & Renters. Because of Bryan he has kept a roof over our heads and has great skills when it comes to communication. I promise you will not be disappointed when working with Bryan Suarez.
Bryan was a great find and the place he got me into was too. He kept me informed via texts and emails about new places that fit my criteria. Bryan was prompt and professional with working with my schedule to view homes. He was always on time. Bryan demonstrated the same enthusiasm as I had for finding the perfect place. I know that when I refer Bryan to others who are looking for a new place I know they will be in good hands. Thank you again.
Marlene and Bryan were terrific in every way, from the first meetings to the close of escrow. They were immediately available for every question I had, never pushy in any way, kind, informative and personable. Previously I had sold two of my homes as "For Sale by Owner" and initially thought I'd go the same route with the home that they sold for me; I'm so very glad that I made this decision; what an amazing and even pleasurable experience this was! The selling process in California was much more involved than had been the case for the other two homes in two different states, and Marlene and Bryan oversaw every detail of preparing the home: from contracts to contractors. They did careful research and professional advertising, scheduled and oversaw the repairs, the painting of the home inside and out, the removal of the popcorn ceilings, the re-flooring, staging, and negotiations. They found handymen and checked their work, reporting back to me continuously by phone, e-mail and with photos. They even joined in on planting flowers, installing new hardware and blinds, cleaning, and keeping the grounds ready for open houses: including vacuuming, leaf blowing, and taking the trash cans out to the curb every single week for months! Marlene found multiple buyers and helped me weigh the pros and cons, leading to a successful conclusion in every way. I am so pleased with them that they are now helping me with the purchase of my next home.
