I wanted you to know what a great experience it was for my brother and I to have you as our listing agent for our family home of 50 years. Your professionalism and integrity really stood out for us. The fact that you had prior experience in staging was a real plus and made a huge  impact on the appearance of our home. I'm sure it contributed to the quick sale. This home was very special to our family and working with you made the transition smooth and bearable. It would be a pleasure for us to recommend you and your services to anyone who might need a exceptional real estate agent.

Marcia helped my husband and I buy our home on a VA loan, she recommended a loan consultant, corresponded to our every question, and was very knowledgeable about the areas we looked at, which helped us get into a safe neighborhood. She negotiated with the selling to realtor to take our offer out of  5 different ones, and ours being the only VA loan with no down payment. We love our home and neighborhood and couldn't of asked for a better realtor.

Rancho San Diego Home Seller

I selected Marcia Tolin as my Realtor against two other leading agents in the East County... Her expertise and confidence in what she suggested were undeniable. She gave me great advice and helped me to ready the house. With her sleeves rolled up I saw someone who was committed, hardworking, thoughtful, and caring. She brought in many personal items to stage my "tired" home, rearranged furniture, and transformed my home into one that looked like a model home! I found Marcia to be professional in every way, and trusted her to do her very best. She met all my expectations and more... The house sold promptly for a price that I was happy with. I highly recommend Marcia to anyone who is considering selling their home.

Marcia, you came through with every promise made which turned out to be a very tall order indeed ... with all the little details it took to "spiff things up" and as tired as we were, we shared a lot of laughs along the way ... You made sure my dog was safe and secure while I was gone. It was a traumatic time for her.  I don’t think she could have survived the ordeal without you coming to reassure her. She came to know the sound of your car and got excited each time. Thank you for being her friend too!
