Buyer's Agent & Listing Agent
I have been selling and listing real estate since 2005. I joined Michelle Gurrera's real estate team just a few weeks after I began my real estate career. Check our team website and view my team's listings.
In the past 10 years I have experienced many different situations which have given me the ability to handle anything that comes my way. I always look forward to a new challenge and meeting new people. I also have a customer service-based background and always make my clients my top priority.
I moved to Wilmington 20 years ago to be close to family, met my husband, and have loved living in Wilmington ever since. Let me use my knowledge of the area and experience to benefit you.
We worked with Marisa while finding a home for our family while relocating from central New York to the Wilmington, North Carolina area. Marisa was extremely knowledgeable, patient, and understanding while we searched for homes (toting along two young children for many showings). She made the experience as fun and stress free as possible. We found our dream home and she helped facilitate a smooth home buying experience. She was always accessible by phone, email, or text and answered questions promptly. Marisa was an absolute pleasure to work with and we would recommend her to anyone.
We chose Marisa to help us find our first home and could not be happier. After getting an idea of our wants/needs, she quickly set up a day of showings. Due to her local knowledge/connections, she even showed us a house that had just come on the market that day. We fell in love with (and wound up purchasing) the very first house she showed us. Throughout the process of buying, she was immediately responsive to any questions and very helpful. She set up all of the inspections, guided us through negotiations, and made the process of buying our first home joyful instead of stressful. Marisa is knowledgeable, friendly, trustworthy, and hard working. Could not recommend her more to other home-buyers.
Marisa is GREAT to work with! She made the process super easy for us-both with selling our home as well as the purchase of our new one. She was enthusiastic about helping us find our dream home and graciously accommodated our tight schedule. We're grateful to have had Marisa's help with what can typically be a stressful time-she made it easy!
I told Marisa what we were looking for-
she was not only accommodating - we lived out of town- but she
found us the perfect property and helped us thru the entire process.
I highly recommend her and would do it again without any hesitation.
I cannot say enough about Melissa’s professionalism, good nature,integrity and all around helpfulness and knowledge. She really knows the Wilmington area inside and out. She helped us fine the perfect home and guided us through the purchase and beyond. I will be sure to employ her services again and would highly recommend her to anyone . Thanks Melissa
We contacted Marisa about a house in Castle Hayne NC but that house did not fit our needs. that weekend she showed us a couple other houses but did not find the right one until she showed us a new neighbor hood in Leland NC. we started building in June and with Marisa's help we were able to close in December. Marisa worked directly with our contractor to assure we getting everything we were paying for all the way to closing day. Marisa was amazing to work with!
Marisa is very knowledgeable and organized. She handled everything from start to finish. I would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home she made our experience flawless and stress free.
Marisa assisted me with purchasing a home in the Wilmington NC area. the overall start time to purchase was greatly extended due to my situation, and Marisa and team were very helpful, and stayed in constant contact during the entire period. we found an excellent home that fit my needs, met the pricepoint required, and were able to close in a very short period of time. I would definitely recommend Marisa to anyone looking for a home in this area.
On time, very knowledgeable, polite, professional. Followed up to ensure all document were submitted on time and correct. Made sure schedules were met. Would not consider calling anyone else for a real estate transaction..
Marisa has been a pleasure to work with. We bought our house a few years ago from Marisa and the entire process was so good, we decided she was the one we wanted selling our house.
Marisa is personable, professional, fair, and works hard for her clients. I have appreciated her communication throughout our process of buying and selling a house.
Her diligence throughout the process was beyond our expectations. We listed, followed her recommendations and advice and sold our home in just a few weeks at asking price!
The recent Hurricane delayed the closing and during the process Marisa stayed on top of things to ensure the deal did not fall through. We have been extremely satisfied with Marisa in the purchase and sale of property. She is definitely our Realtor of choice in the area!
Marisa was extremely informative and patient while walking us through our first home purchase. She was able to advise us through a multiple-offer situation and ensured that we got our dream first home. I would highly recommend Marisa to first time and experienced home buyers alike.
Marissa did an excellent job as our buyer's agent. She was patient and very responsible. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home!!
Marisa was beyond wonderful! She was so patient with us as we purchased our first home. Not to mention, we were relocating from a different state!!!! To add to the challenge we were hard pressed for time. From start to finish she was efficient and responsive every step of the way. We could not have made this transition without her.
She was able to help a low-budget first time homebuying with no clue get into a dream house. She is amazing! She took me to see houses that I was interested in and showed me some I missed--including the one I eventually bought!
Marisa has been a great friend through the difficult process of buying a new home. She definitely doesn't hold back her opinion. I call her the most patient person I've ever met. She sticks with through it for sure.
Marisa was great to work with. We were very pleased with her knowledge of the area and responsiveness. She was always quick to answer questions and very flexible with meeting us for showings. We proudly recommend her for any buying/selling needs.
we were hesitant about signing on with an exclusive realtor but very thankful we made the decision and partnered with Marisa.
She showed us through several homes during times that were convenient for us, often after working hours and on weekends. In fact, we placed our first offer to purchase on a Saturday afternoon and by Saturday evening Marisa had contract prepared, offer to listing agent, and signatures back from the sellers when they accepted our offer over the weekend. Very prompt service.
Pleasure to work with from start to finish...particularly during the due diligence process. Marisa arranged our well test, home inspections and all other "requirements" involved with closing. She even attended closing with us at the attorneys office, which she also arranged.
If you are looking to purchase a home (or sell), my fiance' and I highly recommend Marisa!
We found Marisa through online reviews, and they were correct, She is good. Marisa knows the local market, and what I appreciated the most about her was her honesty and openness, when discussing a home and its market value. She was very responsive, but also gave you your space and let the process happen. I would highly recommend her for helping you purchase your home.
Marisa was amazing to work with!! As a first time home buyer there was a lot i was confused about but Marisa made everything so easy to understand. She got my house price reduced and and negotiated so many extra perks for me. I will be sure to recommend her if any of my friends or family is looking to buy a home. A pleasure to work with!!
This is the second time we have worked with Marisa as both our buyers & selling agent. She is the best at what she does and my family is so grateful for our new home! She has a very personalized approach at turning a seemingly stressful
situation into an extremely enjoyable process. Marisa will forever be our family's real estate professional of choice and we will always highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!
It was my pleasure to work with Marisa. She made the process enjoyable. She is very knowledgeable about the community and often gave information beyond what I asked or had thought of-slow memory. She answered all questions and knew of people who could help with fixing things in my new home. She is pleasant and fun to be with her. A great experience and have her help me with selling my current home.
Outstanding advisor and guide through the whole process. Or knowledge, expertise, skill, and advice was invaluable as we went through a new process in a new state.
Marisa was very assertive in helping find our Karma house, and making sure all of the minor details were taken care of.
She worked very hard to make sure the sellers agent responded to the issues that arose.
I would highly recommend Marisa to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in Wilmington.
Our experience with Marisa was fanamonal! We began the house hunting process months before we were ready to purchase, and she went above and beyond to accommodate our crazy schedules. She really knows the area and was always quick to answer any question we had throughout the purchasing process. She made the entire process flow smoothly, and never made either of us feel rushed or stressed. I would highly recommend her to anyone in the Wilmington area looking for their next home!
Ms. Marisa Pierce is reliable, honest, trustworthy and focuses on my interest. She has assisted me on several home/land purchases. The last purchase was several weeks ago. I am confident in her ability to do the best for my interest. She made the process smooth and provided great advice. That is why I will use her expertise for future purchases.
Marisa got my home under contract in 3 days and closed in a month. She is very professional and was available to answer all my questions. Great agent, I highly recommend her for any real estate transactions.
Marisa is awesome! I can't say enough positive things about my experience with Marisa.
I was in a time crunch and needed to sell my house in a hurry. Therefore, I contacted Marisa based upon her reputation as the "go to" realtor in the Piney Acres area of Wilmington.
We had our initial meeting on April 14th. I outlined my situation and Marisa said she was up to the challenge. We signed a listing agreement that day. After doing some work on my house, my listing went active on April 26th. I had 15-16 showings over the next six days. I received three offers and had a signed offer to purchase on May 1st. The offer I accepted came in over list price. I closed on June 5th. Done! Awesome! Amazing!
What more can I say? Marisa proved why she is the "go to" realtor in Wilmington. She was definitely up to the challenge I presented to her. I don't think another realtor could've produced the same results that Marisa did. I highly recommend Marisa to anyone needing a realtor in Wilmington.
I did a long distance transaction through Marisa with a difficult seller. She was very thorough and proactive. She also helped me to find service professionals in the area
Marisa was exceptional from start to finish. Her local knowledge of the market and attention to detail made my home buying expirence a great one . I would recommend reaching out to her if you are in the market for your next home.
I am so thankful to have had Marisa's help & expertise on my side when it came to selling my home. She made the process quick and easy. I can't imagine anyone doing a better job! If you need a great real estate agent, I highly recommend Marisa!!
Marisa is the best! From her demeaned to her negotiating skills. We are so happy that she was referred to us! Many realtor's will go the extra mile for you. Marisa goes way above and beyond that.
I can say without hesitation that we would not have been able to get the house we wanted without her! If we should ever decide to sell or purchase another home, Marisa will be our go to real estate expert. If you want the best, call Matisa!
Excellent realtor to work with. I bought the second house we looked at because she knew exactly what I wanted. She stuck with me through the entire experience and still after 6 months continues to follow up and make sure I am still happy with my purchase.
Marisa was absolutely fantastic to work with. She was so on top of everything; very patient, very responsive and very in-tune with what we were looking for. We went to Marisa as first-time homebuyers, a little wary of the whole process, but she was great about keeping us in the loop on every little thing and giving us really solid advice when looking at homes, making our first offer, etc. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home in Wilmington! Not only was she extremely apt as a professional, but she was funny and so kind the entire time. She also hooked us up with Alpha Mortgage for our loan, and we got an amazing rate on our home! No surprise, her contact there was also just as lovely to work with. Overall a wonderful experience! Thank you, Marisa!
Marisa was fantastic!!! I am a first time home buyer and was a little nervous about the process and she put by fears at ease. Marisa was very knowledgeable, and explained everything step by step. I felt like I could trust Marisa and felt that she had my best interest as a priority. I couldn't be more happy with my first new home and feel like it was exactly what I wanted. Marisa was very professional, but also made buying a home fun and exciting. I would recommend Marisa to anyone and everyone!
I found Marisa through Zillow while searching for a home to buy. We made first contact on a Saturday morning and were able to see 5-6 that same day and make a purchase. She was highly proficient and knowlegable and a pleasure to work with.
My experience has solely been with Marisa Pierce and I couldn't possibly say enough positive things to describe my experience. Marisa is extremely proficient and pro active. She is professional, knowledgeable and has a very pleasant personality. Her sole goal is to get the job done for you. She was always available to take my calls and often times predicted what I would need next. I highly recommend, Marisa Pierce. You simply can't go wrong with her.
We worked with Marisa Pierce for about a year. She is absolutely wonderful. She is the consummate professional in every way. Marisa is extremely knowledgeable, patient, responsive and , most important, she has a great sense of humor. She guided us and provided insightful comments to help us reach a great decision. Marisa will not put lipstick on a pig - she gave us honest evaluations which were much appreciated.
Marisa Pierce is one of the most professional and amazing Real Estate Agents I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with. She went above and beyond with assisting us in the process of purchasing our property in Wilmington, NC. We were from out of state and she helped us find the perfect place and made sure that every step of the process went smoothly even when it had the potential to not. If you are looking for a great Agent give Marisa a call!!!
The real estate person with whom we dealt was Marisa Pierce; she is part of the Michelle Gurrera team. Marisa handled all real estate issues seamlessly. We were not present for the closing; Marisa represented us. Now, a couple of months after the closing, whenever we have a question Marisa is quick to respond.
Michelle Gurrera Real Estate Agency was recommended to us by a friend who has a business relationship with her company.After the first day phone call I felt like I was working with old friends. Marissa Pierce was our agent and she was amazing. When she was out of town and I had questions Michelle called me immediately. My husband and and I really were unsure what we wanted and she showed the best Wilmington had to offer. When we found the home we wanted she made the process of purchasing our home easy. I would highly recommend Michelle Gurrera Agency to anyone who ils looking for caring agents. Mo and Fran Mitteness
Marisa Pierce knows her stuff. She led me directly to my dream house (no exaggeration—it was everything I had hoped for and more) with the utmost professionalism and care. I have both bought and sold with Marisa, in both up and down markets, and recommend her without hesitation. She has a solid understanding of current market conditions, worked tirelessly on my behalf, and is a delight to work with.
Marisa has exceptional people skills—I felt listened to at every turn, she anticipated my questions, calmed my fears (e.g., a hurricane came through town right before my first closing), and kept me informed. She also uses those people skills to negotiate with the various players you meet during the process (potential seller or buyer, home inspector, banker, handyman) to get you what you need.
Marisa is both meticulous and tenacious--a winning combination in a realtor. After matching you with the perfect house (or perfect buyer), she keeps track of all details and finds efficient solutions to all the little ‘problems’ that inevitably pop up. I knew I was always in good hands, and my closings have gone through seamlessly under her watchful eyes.
I’ve had friends and acquaintances use Marisa and they confirm my experience with her and agree that all home buying and selling should be this easy. She’s personable, professional, and unflappable. It was a joy to see her number pop up on my phone, and I look forward to buying my next house with her.
We were pleased to have Marisa Pierce be our agent. Since we were new to the area, having Marisa show us to different sites was most helpful. When we found the house we wanted, Marisa was in our corner from start to finish. We got the house for the price we wanted, and are quite happy.
Anyone wanting an agent would be fortunate to have her represent them. The Ihrigs
Our experience with michelle gurrera has been nothing but positive. we have worked with marisa pierce, a real estate broker who works with michelle gurrera. marisa found us the vacation home of our dreams, and every part of the process was handled with the utmost professionalism. we were especially impressed with marisa's negotiating skills- she will get you the best price whether purchasing or selling. we are currently working with her to sell a property, and would not consider using anyone else.
I had the pleasure of working with Marisa Pierce throughout my home buying process. I could not have been more lucky. As a young homeowner my budget was tight to say the least but I wasn't willing to settle for just anything. Marisa did an absolutely phenomenal job staying in touch with me, providing me with information, and being there with me through every step of the way from looking at houses, to the inspection process, and finally at closing. Her professionalism is second to none and despite the workload I am sure she had, I felt like her only client and not just a client but a friend which is outstanding in a field where the pressure is on to get a sale. Marisa's attitude and demeanor were exceptional and certainly raised the bar in my opinion of what is to be expected from a Realtor.
Cameron Pearson was my loan agent and he deserves all the praise in the world for putting up with me! He was always available day or night for any questions I had about the loan process. He met with me on several occasions to explain everything to me in detail. Cameron went above and beyond considering the time spent with me and the resources given to me to better understand the loan process and even took the time to help me consider my options when I was getting cold feet. Buying a home is a long-term decision and can be very scary but I do not believe I could have gotten through the process with two better people than Cameron and Marisa. I love my new home and I know I will for years to come, Thank you guys!!!!
We were new to Wilmington area and Marisa took lots of extra time to help us narrow our search. She was very detail oriented and meticulous on our walk thru of our new house-she found things we did not see. We highly recommend her expertise and look forward to using her again for family moving here in the future!
