Marisa did an excellent job helping us find our perfect home. She went above and beyond helping with any issues that came up. Friendly and attentive!
Just accepted a job in Wilmington and had a short amount of time to start looking for a home. Marisa spent a whole day showing me a list of houses I was interested in as well as brought some listings of homes she thought would be intriguing given my budget. Very knowledgeable of the area. Great communication and extremely helpful. Highly recommended.
Marisa is a friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable real estate agent. She is very well organized and follows through. She showed my husband and I various options in the region. We selected a lot in a resort community. She helped us select a builder and was very helpful getting us to the builder contract stage. Even with the COVID-19 pandemic, she has supported us throughout the process of building a new home. Highly recommend Marisa Pierce.
Marisa was amazing to work with. She was often ahead of all the things needed to purchase a new home. Our lender made this move challenging, but Marisa was always by our side, making the changes needed. Can’t thank her enough
Marisa's extensive knowledge of the local condominium market was invaluable for helping us choose the right property for our daughter. She helped us understand which areas would be suitable for our daughter and then showed us the best properties in those areas.
I used Marisa to buy my first home and she was wonderful. I knew when I was ready to sell it and upgrade she would be the agent that we would use. Marisa is professional and really advocates for what you want whether you are buying or selling. I Highly recommend her!!
I was introduced to Marisa by a family friend. Marisa was my realtor when I sold my home and represented me buying my new one. My old home sold in 6 months in 2019. Marisa will be recommended.
We have moved many times and Marisa is by far the best agent we have ever worked with. She understood our needs and wants during the house search . We felt it was more tiring because of the COVID and time consuming. Her patience and great attitude was such a pleasure to work with.
We bought and sold our first home with Marisa and cannot recommend her highly enough! She was responsive to all our needs and was quick to put in our offer, helping us to win in a multi-offer situation. When it came time to sell Marisa was again extremely responsive and help us picked the perfect asking price. Her photo team is outstanding and really helped make our house stand out on the market. Another satisfied customer!
Marisa was extremely professional and responsive in the sale of our home. She had great recommendations for last minute home repairs. Would highly recommend her and use her again when I am in the market for a new home!
Marisa was great! She was so helpful with not only finding us our new home but also new so much about the area we purchased. She took the time to answer all of our questions and concerns. Marisa worked to make our new purchase go smoothly and had fun while doing it. We highly recommend her.
Marisa is an excellent realtor on all levels. From the first house we looked at, she figured out exactly what we liked. She paid attention to our wants and needs, and stayed on path. She knew we needed a house ASAP, and with her help, we managed to find and close on our perfect house in less than a month. We also needed to find a furnished rental until we purchased a house, and she very quickly found one more than suitable for us. When the new home negotiations became challenging, she successfully carried us through to the end. Marisa is the perfect realtor who truly goes to bat for her clients. We highly recommend Marisa, and if the time comes again, we won’t hesitate to give her a call.
Marisa was very attentive and timely to our needs and found us the perfect townhome. We could not have asked for a more professional and knowledgeable agent. Thank 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.
