Marylene is the only reason I am living in my current loft as I write this review. After visiting an open house on a Saturday afternoon, I decided to email her on a Saturday night to ask a few questions. Less than an hour later (past midnight!), she got back to me with an analysis of the similar apartments to the one I visited and a lot of useful information. We visited the house together the next day and learned that the deadline to submit an offer was moved from the next Wednesday to that very Sunday because the seller already had enough good offers. I didn't even have a pre-approval letter at that point because I was not expecting to become serious until a few months. Marylene spent the afternoon reaching out to her contacts to get me a pre-approval letter and have everything ready to make an offer, which she did. And my offer ended up being the one chosen among all the others. I highly recommend her if you're looking to buy or sell. She really goes the above and beyond to make her customers happy. She clearly did with me!
We met Marylene at an open house when we were working with another real estate agent in the area and immediately knew she was the best agent for us! We switched to her after almost 2 months of searching and she immediately yielded far better results than our first agent. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable about real estate in the Bay Area, but her relationships with other agents, banks, and other professionals all help with her getting the BEST deal for you, regardless if you are buying or selling. She told us once we were in escrow that she would be with us through the entire process...and she certainly was! She even helped us out after we had moved in. This was out of her own volition to provide the best service to us - there was no obligation for her as the deal was already complete. We would recommend her to anyone looking to buy/sell in the area. You will not find a harder working, more well-connected agent!
My review is for Marylene who was very very helpful in finding my new home. Although Marylene was not particularly focusing in the area I bought my home, she went the extra miles to show me some houses during three weekends. We met first for coffee and she explained to me during 1 hour how the real estate works in the Bay Area. She provided a complete booklet with all the information. We first scheduled home visits, she wanted to know what we liked, what budget we had and then could send me some links of available houses. We made our list and she then would accompany us and discuss with each listing agent to make sure to get the right information. During the negotiation phase she advised me about some contingencies I needed to put on the offer. Marylene is a very knowledgeable realtor and was able to guide me during the whole buying process.
The best Real Estate Agent! I was so lucky to know her through a French Speaking meetup group. I had a one-bedroom condo, which I need to divest to support my retirement. She has done an incredible job from the day I have emailed her to closing the deal for a month! I was extremely impressed by her professionalism, attention to detail, familiarity, and knowledge to the market. I have followed her advice and did minor upgrades fo my unit and it was sold with multiple offers. I also have several open house invitations; all of which were beautiful staged and very inviting. All my friends were equally surprised and happy for me for the quick execution of selling my condo as I was really in need of funding for my retirement. I highly recommend Marylene for anyone who has a need in buying and selling homes.
Choosing Marylene Notarianni to sell our home was the best decision we made. She provided us with first-class service. Having moved out of state, Marylene coordinated everything from when to put the home on the market, what upgrades to make to attract the right buyer, what price to list at and where to advertise. She provided us with a wealth of resources and coordinated the renovations by using a cadre of experts from flooring, painters, contractors, stagers, and a photographer who caught the essence of our home by using state of the art equipment including photos taken by a drone. She was strategic on her approach, had relentless energy, and worked long hours, keeping us always well informed at each stage. From beginning to end we knew we were in good hands. We are completely satisfied and recommend her 1000%. You cannot sell your house without her.
I've worked with Marylene on two properties and she has been not only a pleasure to work with but also an intelligent and business-savvy agent you want in your corner! Her market knowledge is top notch. Her negotiating skills are sharp. Her availability and response time while working on a property offer are second-to-none. If you're looking for an agent that works very hard, puts your preferences and needs first and follows up, Marylene is your agent! In this market, you need an agent that goes the extra mile. Marylene does so. On top of that, I've spoken with many other agents and she has a VERY strong reputation amongst other agents and brokers. Perhaps that is the most telling! Can't say enough about what a great experience it was working with someone who had my interests placed in the forefront!
This review is long overdue because (thanks to Marylene) we’ve been so busy with our new house! Marylene was referred to us by a family member who had nothing but good things to say about their experience working with her. Our home buying search was incredibly lengthy, but Marylene showed true patience and stuck with us through every step. We could count on her to meet us last minute even if it meant going out of her way. As first time home buyers, we were incredibly lucky to have someone like Marylene on our side. She is the most professional, knowledgeable, and kind realtor that we’ve ever met. Not to mention that she truly cares and listens to her clients! Thank you so much Marylene!

She is a realtor you can trust who will fight for you all the way and she is patient with you to the end. She helped me to buy my apartment and made this stressful process much smoother and easier for me. I highly recommend her.
We wanted to give a big shout out for Marylene. This is not our first time buying/selling a home, it's actually our fourth in the bay area. Her services are simply the best, hands down. Marylene is all we've expected from a real estate agent and more. She is super nice. She knows her job and the market. She is extremely responsive, has very insightful observations, and is very resourceful. What sets Marylene apart is her commitment to help us not only buy the house we were looking for, but she also accompanied us through the following steps to improve the house and renting it.
Marylene made my experience of buying my first house easy and enjoyable. She made time for every question and concern. Her dedication and willingness to do the best she could be very unique. She was always professional in her manner but friendly at the same time. Very prompt in returning calls, and giving feedback, communication was always open and flowing with Marylene. I enjoyed having Marylene there to help me through this process I knew nothing about. Marylene is an excellent person to have on your side and I thank her so much for everything she did. For a successful real estate purchase I highly recommend her.
Marylene is the best in the business. She has a strong network of resources that proved vital to our buying process. She always kept us well informed, made sure we were comfortable with our decisions, and helped guide us through difficult situations. During the buying process, time is of the essence - we could count on Marylene to be available for calls/emails at any time, ensuring we meet deadlines, and respecting our time. Overall, she worked incredibly hard for us and was genuinely invested in making this a smooth process. She's a true pleasure to work with and we'd recommend her to anyone!
I can't say enough positive things about Marylene. She impressed me, throughout the process of searching for the 'right' home for me in San Carlos; up through and including negotiations and details on closing. Marylene worked with me, throughout the process of finding and closing on my home, with a level of commitment and focus I needed to feel more assured. She also operates, from what I could tell, with a high level of integrity and heart, a combination not easy to find. I would refer people to her anytime and trust they will be in very competent hands.
Being a first home buyer, and being new to the area, it was very helpful having a wonderful agent like Marylene. She is an amazing person and pays attention to details. Before giving the offer, she brought her contractor friend to help us evaluate the house. Even though she was away on a trip due to a family emergency, she made sure we were taken care of by her colleague. Right after her trip she came back immediately to help us close the deal. She is totally dependable person and guided us throughout the process of purchasing our home.
The California market can be tough to navigate but Marylene did an incredible job of making us feel comfortable and gave us so much support to make our first home purchase in this state. Marylene was so patient and really listened to our needs when searching for a home and found us the exact home we were looking for. She was dedicated to us and made us feel like we were her number one clients. While this wasn't our first home buying experience, this was definitely one of the best and I would use Marylene again.
Marylene is a godsend. She is truly a realtor who will fight for you when no one else will. In such a tough market, it is critically important that you find a person who you can trust, will be completely honest and will keep you calm. I’m sure Marylene was a therapist in a past life to make such a stressful process seem effortless. Marylene is extra helpful for first-time home buyers who are confused in the loan process as well. Thank you for everything Marylene!
Finding Marylene has been a blessing. Her vision, expertise in the real estate business and detailed service have been over the top. Being first time home buyers in the Bay Area, she has been the key in finding the right place for us and making sure all the process went smoothly. We have not found just a house but also the real estate professional that we know we want to keep for the future. Her energy, enthusiasm, and savoir-faire are contagious and invaluable.
We are just closing on our first home in California. Being from out of state, and in a competitive market, Marylene's knowledge, expertise, and connections to lenders and other agents helped to ensure our success and comfortability. Marylene works hard to get results and answers for her clients and is very professional and courteous. I absolutely give my wholehearted recommendation in choosing her as your future realtor.
Marylene helped me sell my co-op in San Carlos in 2014. Real estate is not my business, but I don't think anyone could have done a better job than she did. She kept me informed during each step of the process and is a tireless worker whose intelligence, warmth, and humor are never lacking. She even offered to help me move!
FABULOUS! I work for a real estate investor who works the peninsula and the East Bay, and Marylene does an AMAZING job getting us the best price for all of our properties. She's motivated, hard-working, and super-personable. She also knows the Peninsula real estate market deeply and intensely. She is definitely a superstar agent.
Marylene is a great professional and helped us buy a house in San Bruno in less than a month. Reliable and efficient, she explained all the different steps as first time home buyers that we would have to take. We highly recommend her to anyone in search of a new home.
Marylene has a habit of going above and beyond and endeavors to help people land their dream home while making the process as headache-free as humanly possible.Let's Connect
