Yes to Marivi! 10/10!

Working with Marivi has been such a pleasure!! She worked incredibly hard for us. Throughout this journey of our first home purchase, Marivi instilled herself as a trusted advisor, a coach, and now a life long friend. We changed realtors mid-way through our search and what a true blessing Marivi was for us! It was truly night and day. Her professionalism and knowledgeable approach to the home search was well thought out, proactive, and intentional. She spent the first few weeks of our search identifying our wants and needs, often going into homes unprompted to video chat with us in order to help nail down what we liked and disliked. This proved to be very helpful. Marivi has a great network of individuals that helped along the way when we had questions around issues, repairs, and home improvement. In several cases, these individuals were only a quick call away from being on site to inspect or quote something that we had inquired about.

I would like to note that while some agents may try persuade you into a home in order to get a quick sale and move on, Marivi did not. She insisted that we move on from several homes because she knew that we would be conceding on what we truly wanted. Her approach is not to sell you but rather be a consultant for you in one of the largest purchases of your life. This meant a lot to us.

Ultimately after searching for months in this very stressful, seller’s market, Marivi found the perfect home for us, with all that we wanted, and well in our price range. By the time the house presented itself, Marivi knew precisely that it was the one for us. The contract was written promptly, presented, and ratified within a day!

In summary, you truly cannot go wrong using Marivi as your trusted advisor in this process. She exemplifies the true meaning a real estate professional.

What started out as looking for a short term rental turned into finding and buying an amazing home. Marivi Garrison is the reason it happened. Originally, although she doesn’t do rentals, she was going to help us navigate the rental market. With her information and advice, we soon figured out that we’d be better off buying a home.
Marivi was the best possible realtor for us. In no particular order, here are some of the things we really liked about working with her.
1) Her responsiveness- She was very prompt in answering emails, texts, and calls. If she wasn’t available she would acknowledge the message and let us know when she could reply.
2) Her patience - We really had no clue about what we wanted or exactly where we wanted to be. Her skillful questioning and sharing of homes helped us figure it out.
3) Her persistence- She scoured the listings for strong possibilities, encouraged us to fine-tune our wish list, and worked tirelessly with us.
4) Her expertise - Not only does she know the real estate market but she also knows construction. Most of the time we were doing virtual tours with her and she could answer my husband’s picky technical questions as well as spot issues we might not notice.
Then we found the perfect house and she really spring into action! She did a walk-through with us, crafted a very strategic offer, and in less than 24 hours our offer was accepted. She is now guiding us through the rest of the purchase process.
Great job, Marivi! Thank you!

Marivi helped us with both selling and buying homes in Williamsburg over the last few months. She guided us in prepping our home for solid showings and in pricing for a sale. As multiple offers came in, she helped us evaluate each one to choose which was the best overall fit for us. Then she walked us thru each step thru the closing.

Marivi also helped us find our new home in the area. She helped us determine what we actually wanted, and then helped us purchase it in a very competitive market. Again, she walked us through each step in the purchase process.

Marivi knows Williamsburg, knows real estate negotiation, and takes time to get to know her clients and their needs.

Marivi puts her clients first. She took the time to learn what I was looking for in a new home and endeavored to find homes that met my wishes. With sales happening quickly, she was on top of new listings for me. After looking for a few weeks, she found exactly what I wanted. Her expertise, patience, and thoroughness made for a wonderful experience. I highly recommend her for your housing search!

We started our journey about four months out from our closing date and weathered the Sellers market with marvi by our side to get us into a home that surpassed our expectations/needs thanks to her knowledge of the area and her extensive network in the community. The best part was we were able to close on time and get the family settled thanks to Marivi going above and beyond for our family in so many ways. I started the journey looking for a good realtor and my family ended up with a beautiful home and a lifelong friend.

These are complicated times in the Real Estate market. New laws. New ways of doing things and, of course, the people. It has been twenty years since we last sold our home and we did it ourselves. You can't do that any more. We asked Marivi Garrison to help us get though the selling of this house ... and that she did. Marivi is a pro on so many levels and she is extremely personable and that make a difference. She understood our situation and built a strategy around that. In the end, and looking back at this transaction, we could not have come out of it in as good a shape as we did without her knowledge of the business, dedication to us and her winning personality. I believe anyone she works with will get one hundred percent of her dedication to doing the right thing for you.

With the current Seller's market and all the complexities of real estate, it is extremely difficult to be shopping for a home right now. However, having Marivi Garrison as my Buyer's Agent really made all the difference as I searched for a home the past few months. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area, and real estate in general. Marivi really takes the time to get to know her clients and really understand what they're looking for in a home. She is very professional throughout the process and was an excellent resource to have going through the home buying process. Marivi was very proactive in searching the house listings to find places to show me that were within my price range and had the features I was looking for. Even though we did go through a dry spell where there just wasn't much being listed, she really came through and found me a place that was exactly what I was looking for and got me a great deal on it too!! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate agent.
