Marla Parong relocated from New Jersey to Southern California shortly after the events of 9/11, when she was working in Human Resources at a law firm in Midtown Manhattan. Immediately in love with the palm trees and sunny skies, she has since called California her home. Her HR career continued out here, and she also worked for some time in the legal department of an internet marketing company, handling contracts. Now married with 2 beautiful kids, Alani and Koah, and 3 loving dogs, she and her husband Jeff love spending time hiking at sunrise and any other time they can. Marla developed a passion for real estate 4 years ago. She’s known for her extraordinary, above and beyond service to her clients, whom she loves to wow. Marla joined Harcourts to expand into the higher end luxury market where her attention to detail and love for social media marketing can flourish!
Thank you Glen for all the hard yards you put in for us on Saturday to obtain the results we did. Your knowledge of the industry is invaluable and to combine this with your enthusiasm, professionalism and positive nature is peace of mind for any prospective vendor. We were extremely pleased to have you on our side throughout this process.
Your ability to successfully manipulate and read the potential buyers art my auction resulted in a more than satisfactory sale price. I feel comfortable contacting you anything with questions about future purchases.
Alex and Deanna are the only people I would recommend with complete confidence. They far exceeded any expectations I could have imagined. I handed over the keys to my home and they handled everything extremely quickly getting it on the market. The staging made our mid-century modern home look like a model! The process was totally turnkey from staging, marketing, open houses with follow up and negotiating on the many offers we received after the first open house. We sold the house for K over asking!!! To top it off, they are the nicest people to work with and always go above and beyond. It is a no brainer... they are the BEST!!!
Alex and Deanna made the process of buying our first home seamless. They are an amazing team and went above and beyond every step of the way. I cannot recommend them enough. We will be clients for life!
There are very few professionals like, Brooke Coutinho. She masters the fine art of communication, kindness, and intelligence when completing any task at hand. I have the honor of working with Brooke and our international women’s real estate group called, Real Women In Real Estate Los Angeles. As a real estate professional, homeowner, and investor I have 100% confidence in Brooke and honestly, I wish I could steal her away to work with me. She is the proverbial unicorn in our business.
I have worked alongside Brooke Coutinho for approx. 5 years. During this time I found her to be extremely helpful, so efficient and always professional! I would love to have Brooke in my team and or have her assisting me with a transaction as I know I could always rely on her to provide the best outcome possible! If you need any further information please feel free to contact me.
Elise is a mind reader! Well, not really BUT when I told her what my must-haves were, she listened. And, when I told her where I wouldn’t compromise, she got it. Time is precious and she respected that and didn’t waste my time by showing me homes that didn’t work for me. That’s important to me.
Christine helped us with our relocation from the Central Valley recently. We had a very specific timeline as this was a work relocation, a specific lists of wants, budget and knew nothing about the area. Christine was respectful of all this and got us in our home with all boxes checked. Honestly, couldn’t be more pleased. A true professional and would highly recommend her. We are beyond happy, and fortunate, to have had Christine on our team.
