Marianne Avila - Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Verani Realty


Marianne Avila sold our daughterís house last summer. She said Marianne was very helpful and compassionate as our daughter was going through a divorce and left to sell the house on her own. Her house sold very quickly, thanks to Marianneís expertise in the current real estate market. When we were finally ready to sell our family home, where we had lived for the past 35 years, we gave Marianne a call. When she first came to our home, she was so warm and friendly. We took to her right away. She had a lot of suggestions as to what improvements we could do to make our home more saleable. We ended up taking her good advice and doing almost all of the updates she suggested. I remember I had asked her if she could sell the house before the first of the year. She answered very confidently, yes, most definitely.


We had to hire a stager because most of our furniture was already moved out. Marianne recommended a few. We hired Monique Barnum, of Serenity Designs. Monique did a super job of staging our home at a very affordable cost. By the time we had done the improvements and staging, it was almost the end of October. We thought that the timing was against us, with the holidays just around the corner. Not so, says Marianne. Marianne took many wonderful pictures and put together a virtual tour that really showcased our home. We had wanted to set a price that was higher than what Marianne had suggested. Of course, everyone thinks their house is worth more than it actually is. Marianne had a very good idea of what our home should sell for but she very graciously met us in the middle. Well, of course, we later found out, after 2 open houses with no offers, Marianne was the expert and she knew what the right price should be. Not long after, we got an offer and closed on the sale less than 2 months from the first day the house was on the market.


Everyone in Marianneís office was a pleasure to work with. Carol Whitley, was wonderful, answering all our questions through emails and phone calls, promptly and professionally. Amanda Bruen, although we didnít work with her as often as Marianne and Carol, was very helpful, ready and willing to answer any questions we had. Our lawyer, Doug Mercurio, also recommended by Marianne, was great, handling all the legal matters, and finishing off the deal with a very smooth closing. All in all, we couldnít have had a better experience with the sale of our home. Marianne Avila is a wonderful realtor, who is an expert at her business, who listens to what your concerns are, truly cares about her clients, and makes the sale or purchase of your home a rewarding experience.

In May 2003 we decided to put our house on the Real Estate Market, and secured

the services of Keller Williams Realty due to a letter we received from their agent

Marianne Avila a few months before.


We called her to make an appointment to meet with us regarding the sale of our home

and we found her to be very personable and professional.


During the period it took to sell our home, she never once wavered from her responsibility. We are very happy that we chose Marianne and Keller Williams Realty and highly recommend them.

After interviewing several potential realtors, we choose Marianne because of her thorough presentation, her association with RE/MAX Partners and her outgoing personality.  She presented us with a comprehensive marketing plan, realistic pricing recommendations, and after a walk through, excellent suggestions for staging our home. 

Throughout the process she was hands on, supportive and helpful.  Not only did she make suggestions for staging our home, but helped us with physically making the changes and bringing in accessories to complement our own belongings.  Other agents offered to recommend professional stagers whom we would have had to pay.


When offers were made and negotiations in process, she gave us insightful input, which was very helpful to us in our decision making process concerning the offer.  She routinely provided market updates and viewing frequency reports, which were extremely beneficial and was always readily available to answer questions or deal with any issues that arose.  The personal attention that she gave us made us feel like friends, not clients. We would strongly recommend Marianne and RE/MAX Partners.



Marianne made me feel like I was her only client; this is the highest recommendation I can make. She goes WAY beyond the call of duty, and holds others in the process accountable. While in the process of buying 1601 Salem St., my car went into the shop for an extended period. I rented a small economy car - when Marianne saw it she insisted I use HER car if there was a time I would be driving with clients in my own business! That's really exceptional and much appreciated.  When I was ready to sell she displayed the same level of professionalism and dedication.



I have bought and sold with three other agents before I had the pleasure of meeting Marianne. Everything went very smooth, Every phone call was returned, and being a single father she worked well around my schedule. Not only is she extremely competent but she is also a very nice person.

If you are lucky to have Marianne Avila as your real estate agent you will not be sorry. When we first met her she explained everything that should be done to help in the sale of our home. She showed us how to stage our home so it would be very inviting to a potential buyer. In fact it looked really good; it showed how much space that there really was so the potential buyer could visualize their furniture in the home. It worked because Marianne put our home on sale on a late Friday afternoon and it was sold the very next day. That's right, I said the very next day. The first couple that saw it bought it. She also got us the price we had asked for. Not only did our home sell, Marianne helped us buy our new home that we are in now. She got the price down for us in this home. I hope that you use Marianne as your agent because she really does look out for everyone that she deals with. Good luck with your search. With the help of Marianne you should be out of your old home and in your new home very soon. Good luck!

Marianne is competent, honest and easy to work with. She skillfully led us through the process of selling our home and purchasing the one we are in today. We've bought and sold many homes over the years and worked with many brokers in several States. I can easily say Marianne is the best. Frank I would and have recommended her.



Marianne was my realtor when I was selling my home in Methuen, MA. She was amazing, thoughtful and definitely thorough with great attention to detail. She helped me sell my home in less than 3 months.  



Thank you, thank you, thank you!
