Marc’s years of experience, extensive knowledge of the area, positive and supportive personality, and prompt responsiveness to our needs made him a pleasure to work with. From the first day, we felt that Marc understood the positive attributes of our property and our wishes for the type of buyer we hoped to find. His recommendations and assistance in finding a storage facility, an estate liquidator and a renovation contractor helped guide us through the process of preparing our long term family home for a very successful sale. With the property properly and beautifully prepared for listing, Marc was able to negotiate a sale within one day of our open houses. His “hands on” approach in complying with city and county inspections and reports, as well as his patience in preparing and walking us through the significant amount of paperwork, made for a perfectly smooth escrow closing. We are extremely happy to have chosen Marc to sell our home.
When it came time for my siblings and me to sell the family home in Berkeley this past summer, which my parents left in a trust, we turned to the expertise of Marc Guay. Interestingly, more than 50 years ago, Marc's mother originally sold our house to my father, so real estate is in the family blood! It seemed like a no-brainer that we'd go with Marc, not only because of the historic connection, but because Marc has much experience with trust homes, which we needed, and we felt comfortable with him from the first walk-through - he's affable, easygoing, committed to his clients' success, and pretty much unflappable (which is good, because selling a home is stressful)!
Marc answered all of our questions and guided us through every step, from connecting us to the person handling the estate sale, to the company handling the refreshing and staging of the house prior to listing. Marc understands the market and updated us weekly on our home's progress via email, phone, and videoconference, and ultimately, he knew exactly what to do to shake loose offers. My siblings and I have been very pleased with the overall process, and despite the unpredictability of the market, we walked away with a profit. I recommend Marc for your real estate needs without hesitation.
Marc was recommended to me to help me sell a relative's home in Berkeley. It was the best recommendation that I could have received. Marc was a first rate professional all the way. He was with me throughout the entire process from preparing the house for sale using a team of specialists, advising me on how to set a price to encourage multiple bids, helping me through mountains of paperwork and getting back to me with any questions I had that same day. He is a great communicator. I was genuinely impressed with the experience he brought to the table and his knowledge of the area. After a broker's open, I received 4 offers and the house sold shortly afterward at $200,000 over asking price. Anyone thinking of buying or selling a piece of property in the East Bay needs Marc on their team.
