What do Clients Say?

I highly recommend working with Marcella. She is extremely capable and a good listener who had real insight into what we wanted. We live in Chicago so we wanted to partner with someone who would help us through the process when we could not be in town for much of the time. We also began out search for in March 2022 when the market was exploding with multiple offers for each listing. We did not really have a preference for a specific area but knew we wanted a newer house or updated house with a a larger wooded lot. For much of the process Marcella was our eyes and ears, often scoping out listings which sounded interesting. She was very honest and observant thereby saving us multiple trips out to NC when she felt pretty certain that a property would not work for us. We ultimately decided on new construction in Chapel Hill. Marcella would proactively provide us with video and photo updates of the progress of the house. My husband, who works in real estate in Chicago, also felt very comfortable in Marcella's capable hands. We moved into our house 1.5 weeks ago and are very happy with our choice. Thank you Marcella for helping us in this process!

Marcella is absolutely amazing! She is so professional, thorough, and very intuitive. My experience couldn't have been better. She was in constant contact with me, and together we found a wonderful home that we quickly closed on. In addition to her being a fabulous realtor, Marcella is also a wonderful and caring person. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to work with her!

I just recently purchased my fourth property (and first in over 10 years) and Marcella well exceeded all my expectations. I found the perfect house on the first day of showing and was able to get an accepted offer below asking price. Marcella listened and understood exactly what I was looking for and anticipated every potential situation that came up. The entire purchase process was seamless, which I don't believe would have happened without Marcella's intervention. She also remained in contact post-closing to ensure everything continued to go well. Any and all of my future real estate transactions will be with Marcella. I could not recommend higher. She is personable, accessible, and attentive, knows the area and knows her business.
