Marisa and Stan are an amazing team. They truly go above and beyond in every aspect of selling your home. They know the market inside and out, are very professional, and anticipate your needs. This makes the process go smoothly and as stress free as possible. I would welcome the opportunity to work with them again! - Stephanie & Andrew
As first time homebuyers, it was incredibly valuable to have an agent as knowledgeable as Stan available to shepherd us through the entire process -- from searching to closing and everything in between. He did a great job negotiating the offer in a highly competitive buying environment and was able to close out the bidding process quickly. Stan has been living and operating in the Seattle area for more than a decade and knows a great amount of detail around the construction and growth of communities, especially on the Eastside. - Drew Bryant
We really appreciated your patience in showing us LOTS of homes. We certainly saw everything on the market and feel confident in our decision. We also feel lucky to have had the benefit of both of you as our agents. You both were on top of every detail & always found ways to make the process easier for us. There were so many details and it was all so appreciated! - Hallie & Brett
Stan assisted me in selling my investment property in Puyallup, WA. As an out of state seller I had limited local contacts to deal with issues at the property that had to be resolved as we went through listing and closing. Stan was knowledgeable in providing guidance on pricing, as well as reaching out to his network to assist in getting contractors to fix some of the small issues that needed to be addressed before closing. We listed and had an offer at asking price within two weeks. Stan kept me posted throughout the process and always followed up and answered any questions I had during the process. I would highly recommend Stan and Marisa if you are looking to buy or sell in the Puget Sound area. - Lodewyk
Marisa & Stan gave us outstanding service in regards to the sale of our home. Previous to listing with the abellahomes team, we were listed with another agent. Marisa & Stan did more for us in the first week than the previous agent did in four months. From beginning to end our transaction was handle with the utmost class and attention. We always felt as if we were Marisa & Stan’s top priority as they always would respond to our every question and inquiry in the timeliest of manner. - Lisa & Ellis
Stan and Marisa were a fantastic team to work with. Stan was very patient and a great adviser in helping us find our new home. Once we found the "right home", he worked with the seller's agent to resolve numerous inspection items on our new house. Marisa was equally awesome to work with when it came to selling our old home. She devised a great plan to get our home prepped for listing. She also timed the marketing of our home beautifully. Also, her negotiating skills with the potential buyers was incredible. Our old house sold in 3 days after listing. Our house sold way over our initial listing price, with contingencies waived. Besides being tough and effective, I must also give a huge 'thank you' to them for their patience and kindness during the process -Julianna
Marisa did a fantastic job selling my home. She knows that market really well, stays on top of things, is very sensitive to the needs of her sellers, and communicates every market change that might affect the sale. We ran into a few snags during the sale, but Marisa was always on top of it, and made sure we got to closing. I couldn't be happier that we hired her to represent us, and would recommend her to anyone. - Jeff
Stan and Marisa were fantastic to work with as we recently sold our home and purchased a new one, both in Sammamish. They were incredibly knowledgeable about the local market and had great advice to help us meet our goal of pricing effectively to attract multiple offers. Marisa kept us continually updated about every important detail and had valuable recommendations for staging and marketing of the property. I would absolutely recommend Stan and Marisa to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home. - Michelle
Marisa gave us the best service. She took care of all the big and small details. She was a constant support in the entire process. We would definitely recommend her to our friends. - Shirish & Dipti
Our experience working with you was nothing short of brilliant. Your character, devotion and performance have been positively consistent. Thanks for showing us the meaning of a "Beautiful Home" or "abellahomes" and all that it brings. - Carrie & Tony
In all of our 8 houses we have sold, Marisa you are the best real estate agent we ever had. We did appreciate all your follow-up and caring. Again, Thank You! - Irmela & David
Marisa, thank you for selling our home in 3 days! Your expertise and professionalism made the whole process less stressful than we anticipated. We appreciated your advice and for keeping us appraised at every turn. Marisa, I will be more than happy to tell your potential clients that choosing anyone else would be a big mistake! Thanks a Million! - Julia & Michael
Firstly, if I could give 10/5 rating, I would.
The first sales meeting - Marisa showed up on time. She was prepared documentation of surrounding area homes for sale and deep knowledge of the Sammamish market in general. I met with two other agents. Both were over “salesy” for my taste. Marisa is friendly but not chatty. She is brief. She is on point. She gives you her full attention despite the fact that her phone is buzzing and beeping constantly.
Home prep - I spent an entire month project managing the various contractors required to get my home ready for final sale. Marisa was there every step of the way. She has a good network of painters, contractors, whatever you need. She actively participates in your work plan. She will make sure you don’t miss anything. Example: “Hey, make sure to get your furnace inspected.”
Honesty & Integrity - I cannot say enough about this team. We had a very difficult selling environment. My buyers were first timers and the selling agent literally disappeared the moment he got a “yes.” Marisa and her team keep the sell moving and vigorously monitored all aspects of the process. She will not tolerate games on the buyer agent side. She is your sincere advocate.
Responsiveness - Marisa sent me daily text messages updating me even when there was no real update. I don’t think I ever went more than 5 minutes without a response to an inquiry throughout the entire process.
Local Knowledge - Marisa is very well informed with deep knowledge of the market, agents, and has a trusted network of contractors.
Negotiation - In a word, fierce. She is not just trying to flip your house for a commission. She is there to advocate for you and get you the best possible terms for your home.
Process Expertise - I appreciate fluid processes. Selling a home has many moving parts. Marisa and Stan have taken the time to automate many of the paper pushing aspects of the home selling process. Marisa understands every detail and is happy to answer any questions you have.
If you want: honest representation, skillful negotiation, incredible responsiveness, and an overall pleasant experience go with this team. A+++ Less - Richard Baldwin
Personal attention and extremely responsive. I feel lucky to have found such a great team of real estate professionals. They know the area very well, and were able to help our family decide between two properties that shared common features. Stan and Marisa went the extra mile to make us feel comfortable with our new home. - Ricardo Villalobos
