There's not enough words to describe what a dream it was to work with Merna. She really is the cream of the crop, always putting her best foot forward and really advocating for you as a client. She helped us sell our first home which held a very special place in our heart. Not only did she sell it for our minimum price we were hoping to sell it for, but it sold for way more than we expected. Her attention to detail is phenomenal, from the staging company to the golden hour photos, everything was done with such professionalism and pride. She also really takes her time to explain the advantages and disadvantages of each decision. This process has been smooth sailing, fun, and stress free and we only have Merna & her team to thank for that. She's always available and just a phone call away. No question is ever a stupid question with her, and she really takes her time to explain everything to ensure we're all on the same page. I wouldn't hesitate to work with Merna & her team again, she'll definitely be recommended to all my friends and family.
Merna and her team are the definition of going above and beyond. As a first time home buyer Merna walked me through the entire home buying process and made sure I understood the nuances. Merna and her team have an incredible eye for detail and are super knowledgeable. With each property we looked at, they were able to help me spot potential pitfalls and give me general cost estimates of any remodeling needed. This was incredibly valuable to me and helped me narrow down my choice. During the final days of closing we experienced a VERY major hiccup on the sellers end. Another agent might have given up but Merna is the type of agent who will go to bat for you and will not put up with people trying to take advantage of her clients. Without Merna's quick and expert work, I would not have been able to close on my home. I'm so glad I worked with Merna because she had my back throughout the entire process. She helped me find an amazing lender and even now that I have closed on my property she has helped me find a contractor to do some renovations. With Merna, it's not just about buying a house, its about helping you create your home end to end.
I can't speak highly enough of Merna! She made the process of buying a house in a such a competitive market super easy. I chose Merna as my real estate agent because I had been hearing her name from all my friends and colleagues at work for many years as the best agent around. She is incredibly hard working, friendly, professional and willing to help and provide advices all the time. I felt confident working with her because she was providing a Competitive Market Analysis (CMA) for all houses before submitting any offer. She is a very well established agent with numerous contacts and connections that helped me out through the renovation process. She is the best thing that happened to me this year ! Thanks Merna!!
After living in the same home and raising 5 kids we decided to move to another city. We knew there was no way we could live in the home while selling it with all the work that needed done, but how could we afford to buy the new home, move, and remodel the old home and sell it and not break the bank. We talked with several agents including a longtime friend. We left those conversations disillusioned and disheartened about the prospects. Those agents left us with huge estimates of work to be done, uncertainty over the price and no real plan to accomplish it. I talked to a friend in passing about our situation and he recommended Merna. Merna had done a great job for him selling his place in a similar fashion, and told me she had great design skills and knew lots of people who knew how to get work done, and done well, and on budget. When Merna met with us it was like hope sprung up in my heart. She had a plan and a system for how to prepare and market our home. If we were willing to do it the way she asked she could guide us through the process and get a quick sale for far more than we imagined. It almost seemed to good to be true, but with my friends experience doing the same thing with her, I was willing to trust her. Merna put together a plan on what we needed to do and when. She got us in touch with contractors and helped us plan how to use our budget. She would check on progress and monitor things and update the plan as needed to adapt to setbacks or challenge. She got us in a program to defer some of the constitution cost until closing so we could make the house perfect. When the final push came, she gave us the tough love to keep us on track for the target listing date. She bought in her trouble-shooters to fix all the issues, inspect the home, and have issues addressed before we went to market, to avoid contingency issues. When the time came for us to list her staging was beyond amazing and the photos really made the house desirable and captured it in a way that both brought people in, but also did not set false expectations. We listed on a Friday with a Monday review date. Got multiple offers and sold the house for more than 20% over the listing price. Merna acted with only the highest professional ethics and integrity through the whole process. She did not just tell us what we wanted to hear, she told us what we needed to hear. By following her plan we were not disappointed. Merna did not work miracles, she engineered reliable results. That is a much better thing.
Merna is a natural! Truly exceptional at what she does! From the moment we met with her, we felt fully supported and guided. She armed us with a lot of information, answered all our questions patiently, and helped us navigate this crazy market with ease. Merna made herself available to us all the time and was a true partner and friend throughout the process. She is incredibly honest, trustworthy and so fun to work with! Merna's magic truly shined when we toured our dream home with her. She quickly contacted the seller's agents and when she found out that they're already considering an offer within less than 24 hours after the house was listed, it was go-time! Within hours, Merna presented us with a well-thought-out plan that ultimately got us the house! She built a trusted partnership with the seller's agents, coached us in preparing a stellar offer, and used her wealth of knowledge and expertise to win against the other competing offer by only $5K. We're so grateful to have Merna by our side! She went above and beyond to provide us with the best experience. We wouldn't have been able to navigate this highly competitive market without her. We highly recommend Merna and already can't wait to work with her again in the future.
Merna did a fantastic job preparing the house to go on the market, creating buzz around the property and getting us a great offer, above our expectations. Her attention to the details made a big difference.
Merna is a consummate professional and the only realtor we will ever use for buying and selling property. She clearly sets out expectations and it's great to know that you have someone on your side that will always get the very best! Merna worked so hard to make sure that our house looked perfect and was ready to sell and the proof in this was when we received and accepted an offer 24 hours after listing! Merna is also a wonderful person - she gets just as excited as us when we are going through the process of buying or selling and is a pleasure to be around!
