We moved to the region pretty much sight unseen and needed someone to guide us with expertise, local insight and care. Marisa met and exceeded our needs. She was kind, responsive and a steady presence as we navigated a home purchase from another state. We quite literally could not have found our home without her! More than once we said we wish would could have had Marisa for our sale too! -Katie & Matt B.

We worked with Marisa for nearly two years before we found our dream home. During that time she demonstrated patience, flexibility, enthusiasm, optimism and professionalism. She supported us at every step, with a fresh and positive outlook, never showing frustration when we missed the ferry and magically shifted schedules to accommodate us. She was tireless, showing us countless homes. Marisa was knowledgeable about lenders, inspectors, and expertly guided us, sharing her knowledge of the neighborhoods. Others involved actually commented on her expertise. She connected us to resources and has remained invaluable since closing. Marisa often anticipated and met our needs before we asked. She took care of us. She knows her stuff. She cares about her work. She is good at her job. She is good people. - Alan & Michelle F. as posted to Google, Dec 2021
Marisa is a gem! She is highly professional and organized in detail. When I first met her, she was NIGHT and DAY above the agent we had prior, trying to sell our house. She did her research of the area, had notebooks of properties to compare, took the time it takes and knew her stuff! Marisa gets to know you and what you want on a personal level giving her suggestions, and listening to yours all while maintaining her professionalism. We always felt in good hands. Ours was not an easy sell and she really worked hard on the scene and behind the scenes for us to make sure everyone was happy with the outcome. We could not have asked for a better realtor. I highly recommend her. She is prompt and remains cool and calm in all circumstances and has a way of reassuring you that all will work especially when negotiations begin. We had great confidence in Marisa and her work ethic is top notch! Our outcome was everything it could be because of her and we highly recommend her as first choice for selling or purchasing a house.

As a home inspector I see many realtors and their clients interact. Every time I am at an inspection for one of Marisa’s clients I get to be part of a wonderful experience. She is always attentive to her clients needs and is excellent at communicating all of the details involved in the purchase of their new home. Her clients always seem to feel confident and at ease knowing she is looking after all the details large or small. One of the main reasons I became a home inspector was to be able to help clients feel at ease while making an investment in their future. When Marisa is involved, I feel as if I’m part of a team helping people to achieve one of their most important dreams.- Alvin w/Alloy Home Inspections
Marisa did a wonderful job selling our home. She was easy to commute with and did a wonderful job keeping us informed. Her marketing skills were some of the best we have seen during our home selling adventures. This is the 3rd home we have sold and first time we have been impressed with our realtor. From start to finish, this was the easiest home selling experience we have had. We’d happily recommend Marisa to any of our friends and family! Thank you Marisa for everything you did to get our home sold and help us move into the next chapter of our lives!

So happy that we found Marisa. We actually were looking at a different property (vacant land) and were only interested in passing... Marisa went above and beyond to look into the property, went out to check it out in person for us without us asking. We ended up passing on that property but stuck with Marisa for our property search and she was instrumental for us and made managing our home purchase remotely an easy thing to do. Key to Marisa is that she is thoughtful about the little things... even showed up to our signing appointment to play with our girls because she knew it would be difficult to keep them busy. Highly recommended.

"Here's why I would highly recommend Marisa: She is "on it": Marisa is way ahead of every task, and is anticipating the next needs of the transaction so I don't have to.
Marisa communicates updates: She sends e-mails or texts, or calls by phone, to share with me how the sale is going.
Marisa is a great negotiator: She handles multiple offers well and I'm confident she is looking out for the absolute best outcome for her clients.
Marisa doesn't shy away from doing whatever it takes for her buyers and sellers" - Rebecca B , Seattle
Marisa has been working with me to find the right house for me and my kids. She listens and motivates me to take action, whether small steps or large leaps during a stressful time in life.
She is informed and willing to literally hold my hand through the difficult process of finding a house to buy on Bainbridge Island that works with my budget.
I would recommend Marisa time and time again for anyone with any budget looking to buy in Western Washington. - Heather on Bainbridge, as posted to Facebook, Closed Purchase Dec '19
Marisa Robba's professionalism and knowledge is much appreciated and I would use her realtor services again. We bought a family home in Poulsbo and there needed to be communication & coordination between WA & CA where I was living during the process of looking, and bidding that ultimately lead to an accepted contract and successful closing! Marisa coordinated and managed this process and ensured it ran smoothly and efficiently. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is planning to buy or sell a home. Thanks again Marisa! -

Marisa is patient and thorough, empathetic and enthusiastic in her representation. She took time to understand our needs, was quickly able to locate, review, and recommend to us a well-suited property, and strongly advocated on our behalf in negotiations. We threw a few curveballs her way, and Marisa was definitely able to hit them out of the park!- Jacob & Carolyn J,

"As a former military wife, I have hired many realtors. Marisa Robba stands out as THE best I have ever dealt with. She was responsible for selling a rental that was rejected by a previous realtor because of the poor condition the house was left in. When I shared this information with Marisa, she assured me that I could get a sale with the right assistance from cleaning professionals who had dealt with such situations before. Within a few weeks, the property was cleaned up and put on the market. Offers came in immediately. The property sold for $40K more than similarly listed properties in the area. All along, Marisa kept in close touch and coordinated all services needed. Her knowledge of community resources plus the real estate market made what at first seemed to be a nightmare, turn into a happy success story. You will find no more professional and caring person for your real estate needs." - Patricia B, Portland, Or
"Marisa is professional, friendly, reliable and prompt. She wasted no time in seeking out and identifying homes that fit what I was looking for, and stayed on top of new daily listings until we found the right place for the right price. I recommend her highly and without hesitation"- Les W., Bainbridge
Marisa was a fantastic realtor for my purpose of a home just across the Sound from Seattle. She is exceptionally responsive, using texts, phone calls, and e-mails to keep me informed at each stage of the purchase. She worked around my schedule and timezone differences (purchasing the house while still living in Hawaii) and even arranged for multiple walk-thru's using cameras so I could see what I was about to purchase. I would highly recommend her, and she was actually referred to me by one of my best friends. I am very glad he and his wife knew her, she is an absolute gem!
