"Marlene and Nicolette are a very solid team ..."
"Over the past 15 years Marlene and Nicolette helped me sell a home in San Jose and both buy and sell a home in Los Gatos. Each process was very successful and they partnered with me every step of the way. I truly believe I could not have done it without their help. They helped me prepare my homes in order to get the best price. Their market analysis was spot on and they were both skilled and professional in handling the offers and contracts. When I bought my home in Los Gatos they were patient and tenacious in finding the perfect home for our family. Marlene and Nicolette are a very solid team and have my highest recommendation."
Carol Martin | Seller | Los Gatos
"The timing of both the purchase and sale were tricky ..."
"My wife and I are serial re-modelers and we have used Marlene and Nicolette for our last four real estate transactions. We just closed on our "dream" property and we used Marlene and Nicolette to sell our old home and purchase the new one (REO). The timing of both the purchase and sale were tricky, as well as the financing, but both transactions went very smoothly and without one problem. I attribute this to the experience and attention both Marlene and Nicolette brought to the table and we could not have pulled it off without them. Marlene and Nicolette worked with us for almost two years looking for our next home and they remained amazingly patient while we looked at dozens of houses. They remained incredibly dedicated to our crazy passion for buying un-loved, barely livable shacks and turning into something would actually want to live in."

"They went above and beyond every step of the way when we sold our house."
>"Marlene and Nicolette are an excellent team. They went above and beyond every step of the way when we sold our house. Their reputation and experience were evident with our first meeting and our last. I would recommend them wholeheartedly to anyone buying or selling in the area. We plan to use them in the near future for the purchase of our next home. We would not consider anyone else! They are simply the best."

"They offered professional advice with our best interests in mind."
"We've worked with Marlene and Nicolette several times and I have referred others to them as well. They offered professional advice with our best interests in mind - even when it meant we didn't move. I have always felt they have a long term relationship in mind and put their client's interests first. They both have very positive, engaging personalities and I appreciated working with a team - it is interesting to get two opinions and perspectives. I highly recommend them."

"We have never had a smoother, more efficient real estate transaction."
"I am so impressed with Marlene and Nicolette. I have never had such a smooth, efficient, successful real estate transaction in my life! These ladies are as professional as they come. They compliment each other so well and work as a team. Between them, there is nothing they don't know. We had a run-down, tired, old townhouse that they turned into a gorgeous property. We moved out and they had all the repairs and improvements done for us. They lined up the painter, handyman, plumber, gardener and stager to make all necessary repairs. I didn't have to lift a finger or make a phone call. It was all done for me, efficiently and quickly. They made the house look so gorgeous that I didn't want to move out! Communication was the best. I never wondered what was going on, I always knew, because they kept me informed every step of the way. They are honest, straight forward and efficient. Since there are two of them, It's like getting "two for the price of one" or "double the pleasure" They sold our home, for full price, in less than two weeks! It all went through without a single hiccup, which has been rare for us. It seems like something always goes wrong in real estate transactions, but not this time. Between my husband and myself, we have sold several homes over the years. We have never had a smoother, more efficient real estate transaction. And to top it off......they are two of the nicest people you will ever meet!"

"They did a wonderful job of updating and staging my home."
"Marlene and Nicolette helped my find my home 20 years ago and I went straight to them when I decided to retire and move out of state.They did a wonderful job of updating and staging my home. They did a great job with the open house and I had an offer one day after with greater than 20% over asking price and a 15 day close. I will and have already told all my friends that if they want to sell/buy a home that they should call them."

"I really didn't expect the level of after sale commitment we got from Marlene and Nicolette."
"Marlene and Nicolette acted as buyer agents for us in Los Gatos. During the entire process they were proactive, responsive and professional. But a couple of things really stood out to me. First, we had some title questions that couldn't easily be answered. Based on Marlene and Nicolette's knowledge of the local area, they found a neighbor who had recently done a professional survey which they obtained for us. This really helped in getting over a hurdle in the buying process. Also, they were incredibly helpful _after_ the purchase, guiding us through what turned out to be mostly minor issues. I really didn't expect the level of after sale commitment that we got from Marlene and Nicolette. I recommend them extremely highly!"
Doug Brent | Buyer | Los Gatos
"I was supported from beginning to end as they continually demonstrated they had my best interests at heart."
"When I made the decision to move from my San Francisco apartment to a townhouse in Los Gatos, I needed to find someone to help me that really knew the area since I had specific requirements in mind. I was referred to Marlene and Nicolette who were not only experts in the area, but made me feel like my transaction was the only one they were working on. I was supported from beginning to end as they continually demonstrated they had my best interests at heart. I was well taken care of and am very happy in my new townhouse. I would refer them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. I will certainly work with them again in the future."

"They made our process through 2 purchases and 2 sales survivable!"
"Marlene and Nicolette are total pros. They made our process through 2 purchases and 2 sales survivable! More than that they made it pleasant. Nobody knows Los Gatos better than they do. We highly recommend them."
Greg Olson | Buyer and Seller | Los Gatos
"They put in extra effort all across the board."
"They're very knowledgeable, savy, honest, proactive and friendly. They put in extra effort all across the board, even providing items to enhance the look of our home. Also, they were always easily and quickly available. They "get the lead out"!"
