Recent Client Testimonials:

“From the moment we decided to put our home on the market, Marla Jean’s activation was quick and efficient. There was no question for which she didn’t have an immediate answer and/or a relevant past example. Her work ethic (countering and and locking in an offer at 8:30pm on a Saturday night exemplifies this) was only outdone by her infectious, friendly demeanor. We can’t recommend her/Fazendin enough.”
Gavin K

“It was fun working with Marla Jean. She kept track of everything.”
Melissa F

“Marla Jean was there to advocate for any need that I had or any question that I posed. She is timely in her responses to email, texts, and phone calls. It was reassuring to know that she has the best interest of her clients in mind both during and after the transaction. No many realtors today are as conscientious as Marla Jean in representing their clients. She is a true professional and younger agents could take a lesson from her on customer service. I am hoping that Fazendin recognizes her for her continued efforts to the profession.”
