My good friend retired and wanted to downsize her home but wanted to remain in northern Monrovia. Budget and a list of absolute must-haves for the new home were big concerns so finding the right place was definitely not an easy task! I was going along with her to look at prospective houses & townhomes. My friend had a prior agent looking for her with no success at all. Marcella was extremely proactive, very accommodating with our schedules and responsive to really specific requirements for the new home. It did not take long to find the right property. I definitely recommend Marcella If you're looking for a good experience in your house hunt!


Marcella Houston did a fabulous job in helping us find a new home to buy. She listened well, and offered great suggestions to help us know what it was we actually wanted in a new home. She took the time to drive us around to look at homes we suggested and others she thought we would like. After viewing each home she asked for our feedback about what we saw...what we liked and what we didn't like. Her personal attention and attention to detail was invaluable and comforting during a very stressful situation of changing homes. My husband and I highly recommend Marcella Houston to assist in your buying or selling of your home! You will not be disappointed.


She seems very well connected and can find just the right place to fit your life style. Marcella is very professional, however, her down to earth nature gives you peace of mind that you know you are in great hands. If you are serious about not just finding a house, but a Home, call Marcella
At this time I had to put my home buying on hold however, when I am ready to buy you bet I'm coming right back to Marcella!!


Marcella is amazing, very helpful and very knowledgeable! Marcella took the time to listen to what we were looking for and our concerns about properties we were looking at. She has a large network of people that she works with which is a tremendous help in so many ways. It truly is a joy to work with her!


Marcella is very knowledgable about real estate and not only answers your questions, but educates you on what to expect during the real estate process. She is passionate about her job and it shows in everything she does!

Marcella did an excellent job of selling my home. She moved quickly in holding an open house and she sold my home for an excellent price after only one open house. I was very pleased with her responsiveness to my needs and her assistance with all of the documentation. I highly recommend her to help sell anyone's home


I am a very patient person...as patience is a virtue...all except when it comes to looking at real estate...renting or buying. As patient as I am...I want to tell my real estate agent or look at one or two places with the agent and then...just let the agent find it. It was a hot September in Monrovia when I met Marcella. We looked at three houses and then a 4th; I was just about to take the 4th place but they signed with someone else. WELL, do you believe in miracles? I do. Marcella called and emailed me when the perfect place came on the market. Marcella said you have to see it quick I am sure it isn't going to be on the market long...On all points, she was right. I loved it; my son loved it ( I will be living 1.5 miles from him---just perfect). AND, Marcella made it happen...it was not the easiest sale as my puppy...love of my life is a big girl at 92 lbs. Marcella had me get pictures of my dog, Princess Margaret Anne, II, to show the owners and make the pitch of how perfect PMA and I would be in their house...All in All, Marcella was perfect and she made it happen. I am truly grateful. When I am ready to buy, Marcella will be the first one I call. Mary C. Stevens, O.M.
