Marissa was great to work with. We found a place that both my wife and I loved. She was always there to answer any questions that we had from contract to loan docs. If you are in the market for buying a home, give Marissa a call. She started as our Real Estate Agent but at the end she became a friend.

Marissa is responsive and very easy to communicate with. She provided us with all the details we needed to make informed decision. Throughout the process, she kept us in the loop on what’s going on and what to expect next. She made herself available to coordinate with seller, lender and escrow folks. I would definitely recommend Marissa to my friends.

Marissa was a pleasure to work with. Treated us very well and very quick with every question. She took us around to several houses for many weekends in a row. Always positive and gave us lots of information about the places we saw those weekends. I will be defiantly recommending Marissa to friends, she is a wonderful person.

Marissa came highly recommended by a broker friend of ours from ziprealty in AZ. We have been extremely pleased with Marisa and will definitely call upon her for our next purchase. She has been instrumental in getting us the house of our dreams on the lower end of our budget: Huge! Thank you Marisa!

Honest, helpful, and flexible! Marissa made sure I got the house I wanted and not just any house. She was willing to work at my pace (which was pretty fast) and work around my schedule. Each step of the process she was straight forward and made sure each person I interacted with (inspector etc.) was of high caliber and got me the most detailed and trustworthy information. Here local contacts from mortgage lender to locksmith were all fantastic to work with. She made a first time homebuyer feel the process was enjoyable, without leaving out any of the important nitty gritty details.

Until my partner and I met Marissa, we weren't even sure we wanted to buy a home. I'd been looking casually online for about a year, and after a dismal open house experience it was near impossible to get my partner to go on another home visit. Add to that the endless paperwork associated with buying a home, and renting started to look pretty good again. When we finally found a property that both of us thought promising, we contacted Marissa and scheduled a visit. She asked us a lot of questions and paid close attention to the the little things we mentioned in passing. We thought we liked it ok and saw two other homes, but she already knew the first one was for us. It turned out there was fierce competition for that one, and Marissa gave us a lot of really helpful advice for bidding on--and eventually getting--the property. Throughout the buying process, Marissa was super responsive. There were some issues with the both the sellers and the mortgage broker that required a lot of back and forth, and she always called as soon as she had an update. The paperwork was plentiful as expected, but everything was done online which was very convenient. All in all it was a pretty smooth experience, and we were in our new home within six weeks. I highly recommend Marissa for anyone looking for a new home, but especially for first-time buyers. She was patient, responsive, and answered all of our many questions, which made the home buying process a lot less scary/stressful. And when the time comes for us to buy another home, we would absolutely go to her again. Thanks, Marissa!

Marissa went above and beyond to get us into a home in a very competitive local market. She listened to our needs, communicated effectively, and knew the local market extremely well. Not only did she help us find the house, from day one of escrow through the actual close, Marissa was also available to answer all of our questions and she followed through with any issues with the lender, appraiser, and escrow company. When all was said and done it was a house that she recommended that we visit that ended being the house for us. She has unique insights about the market that would help any buyer and seller feel comfortable about the market. We would not hesitate to recommend her.

We had to sell our home due to a medical hardship. Working with Marissa, we embarked on a path into unchartered territory (although not so much given our current economic environment) having to sell a home that was worth less than what we owed on the mortgage - a short sale. From the beginning Marissa set our expectations accordingly by informing us that a short-sale can take any where from six months to a year. We consider ourselves fortunate that we were able to complete the process in five months; we attribute that to her efforts. She was upfront with us regarding her experience in short sale transactions and was able to tap other resources to get information to help move the process along. Even though she was paid her commission a couple of months or so before we actually closed, she remained diligent by engaging the banks, negotiating and driving the process. She was responsive to our inquiries while providing status updates as needed. Five words come to mind that describe Marissa: diligence, integrity, engaged, personable and professional. On our next purchase of a home in the Bay Area we will definitely be asking her to be our agent.

I wish that I have more ??funds?? in English to write many thanks to Marissa Kjera. I really appreciated whatever she did for me to get the house that I liked. I, a first home buyer, did not know about real estate regulations, so I had a lot of questions for her. She gave me all information with all her heart for hundred questions, no matter what??s time, or on his weekend, or late at night, even mid-night, while her was with her family. She guided me everything and explained very details one by one, all over papers work until I understood. She drove and took me to see all houses without complaining. She was an excellent consultant to provide ton of knowledge about buying home to me, so I could decide and have a right choice to buy a house. She acted really quick. When the house just then was on posting list, I called her. Right off the next early morning, she set up time and brought me directly to the house. Therefore, I had a big chance to get a nice house which I??m living now. Once again, I want to say many thanks to her. She is a very nice agent with a warm heart that I ever seen. She was not even helping me to get this house, but also helped me in necessary works to need to be done after all from A to Z, such as looking for home owner insurance agency, home constructor, or how to get a new water heater, and very much more. In a word, she had given an advice and counsel from the bottom of her heart as she was helping his family members. SHE IS A GREAT AGENT!

Marissa Kjera is an excellent realtor. We are experienced buyers with high standards in a home- and a transaction- so we bring a unique set of needs. Marissa was a patient advocate who shared her knowledge of home renovations, optimism in a hard market, and excellent listening skills. Marissa helped us craft multiple offers in rapid succession- and then we found our true dream home. Throughout the process she never tired of our exacting needs and was always available to help. We are truly satisfied.

Marissa could not have been a better agent. She worked tirelessly to help me find a condo that suited my needs. She made herself available for viewings to suit my schedule, not hers. If she didn't know the answer to my question, she made sure to find out the answer and get back to me as soon as possible. She was instrumental in helping me close very quickly. I am extremely satisfied with Marissa and ZipRealty.

The service Marissa gave us was thoroughly professional. She kept us informed in a very timely manner throughout the listing, showing and sale process. We couldn't have had more positive experience. One does not sell a property often in their life-time. It was wonderful to have such a well informed guide during this process. Thank you, and we will recommend her to others.

Marissa Kjera has been a dream to work with. She is knowledgable, accessible, patient, and really supportive. She guided me through the complicated short sale process (which seemed even more perplexing to me, a first-time home buyer) and always made sure to check in with me to ensure that the houses we were looking at met my needs. Marissa empowered me to see not only the potential in the properties we were looking at, but in myself as a homeowner. I really don't think that I'd be moving into my dream house if it weren't for Marissa's professional savvy and tireless support; I can't recommend her highly enough. Thanks, Zip Realty, for pairing me up with such an awesome agent!
