  • Marcus helped me buy a home

      "There are real estate agents and there are GREAT real estate agents. Marcus falls under the latter camp! Without Marcus, my husband and I don't think we would have gotten the home we purchased in March. From the start, Marcus was a straight shooter and went above and beyond to ask selling agents questions on our behalf and scope out homes in advance of us seeing them. In a market like the Bay Area, you not only need someone who will be competitive along with you, but also someone you can trust. Marcus is, hands down, both. When it finally came down to putting an offer on our new home, Marcus was with us every step of the way...evaluating comps, working with the Seller/Agent consistently to ensure we were top of mind, serious buyers and negotiating on our behalf throughout to the finish line. He even found us a more competitive, reliable lender that we wound up working with for our mortgage loan. The Bay Area market is not an easy one to navigate and Marcus acted as a partner in our process--he wanted the house as much as we did! Even more, Marcus became a friend in the process. He is genuine and kind as much as he is a bulldog when it comes to being "standout" in the buying process. Even after the purchase, he has still been in touch to check in on the move and project list. We hope to stay in touch with Marcus for a long time to come and HIGHLY recommend Marcus and HELM Real Estate!"

      • Marcus helped me buy a home

          In San Francisco's crazy market, you need a smart, experienced and responsive agent. Marcus Miller is all of that, plus he is a true gentleman to work with. He has helped us quickly identify and inquire about properties and write offers. He's offered us invaluable advice and is always there to answer our questions. I've worked with a lot of real estate agents over the years, and Marcus is a cut above the best.

        • Marcus listed and sold my home

            We worked with Marcus to sell our San Francisco home. One of the things that helped us choose him was his demonstrated ability to produce gorgeous marketing materials, from handouts and small brochures to full "mini-magazines" and narrated video tours. Another point in his favor was Marcus's huge network of experts to draw on. Over and over, he pointed us in the right direction when we sought contractors, packers, movers, housekeepers, landscapers and other experts in home-selling preparation. Finally, and probably most importantly, he managed our expectations well, explaining what the ramifications of certain improvement-before-marketing decisions could be on the final pricing. We would recommend him without hesitation to anyone who asks.

          • Marcus listed and sold my home

              Marcus is very motivated and able to get things done. We had to sell our house in The Sunset very suddenly because of an opportunity to buy a family property on a short fuse. We didn't know where to start? Marcus knew exactly what to do and defined a schedule to help us get moved out, perform needed presale repairs, clean and stage the house, market it, sell it (well above asking price), handle all the fine details, and all within a very limited time period. Marcus was in constant communication making sure we were informed whether by phone, text, or email. I can't say enough good things about him and absolutely would use Marcus in the future.

            • Marcus listed and sold my home

                Marcus helped my mom relocate to a condo in a retirement community. He is a solid resource and a great guy to have on your team. He listened to our desires and budget and found a really nice fit.... He was able to bridge gaps with a HOA that was totally non responsive to us and get a representative out to the property to walk us through our questions and concerns... Even though the guy says he prefers not to talk to realtors/ prospective buyers because it would eat up to much of his work day! Cool right? But on top of this he was able to get my mom in for 50K under asking! Next step is to market and sell my mom's old property in Menlo Park. So this review it to be continued when I can speak to his selling abilities.

              • Marcus listed and sold my home

                  I'm happy to endorse our realtor, Marcus Miller, fully and heartily... he went above and beyond to help us close our condo sale recently, and we're very pleased with him. Marcus is knowledgeable and professional, and guided us through every aspect of marketing our condo in an unusual way because of our special circumstances. His efforts resulted in the best possible outcome: we received our asking price and didn't have to use MLS, refurbish the property or stage it... and we were free to leave the area in our ongoing adventure to find our ideal home, while Marcus took care of all the details. Amazing! I've known Marcus for years, and am so pleased to have my experience confirm his integrity, ability, sound judgment and good humor. I simply cannot recommend him more highly.

                • Marcus listed and sold my home

                    Marcus rocks! As newbies to the SF Bay area real estate market, he was our guide and chief advocate in charge of pulling off a miracle in a crazy real estate market. He met an impossible deadline to find us the right home in the single zip code we wanted AND the views we craved with the perfect combination of charm, wit, compassion and tenacious negotiation on our behalf. Proud to be his client. I highly recommend him and the team of professionals he brings to execute on his clients' behalf. He is a Broker Associate god!

                  • Marcus listed and sold my home

                      If I could use all the superlatives in the world, I would use them to describe Marcus. He is a warm and fuzzy human being who truly takes care of his real estate clients. Besides that, he is really smart, has a cool head, and is knowledgeable beyond belief about the real estate business. What else can I say? He's awesome! He's done three different real estate transactions for my husband and me in the last few years, and obviously we cannot say enough good about him. If you want to buy a place or sell a place, call him. He's amazing!

                    • Marcus listed and sold my home

                        Marcus sold my condo for me at the start of this year and I couldn't be happier with his work! I am one of those people who isn't satisfied to just be told the end result. I want to understand the what and the how and the why of it all and Marcus was so very patient in explaining even the most minute of details to me so that I understood the process and made informed decisions. His casual style and approachable demeanor really took the pressure and stress off my first sale. I couldn't be happier with how it went.

                      • As first time buyers (my husband and I both non-Americans) we couldn't have gotten a better real state broker. Marcus is extremely professional and knowledgable. He made us win the offer on our dream house in a high competitive scenario. Marcus was extremely diligent when needed and didn't leave any loose ends. He accompanied us during the entire process and explained everything with no reservations. Marcus was instrumental in managing sensitive situations/communications that lead us to keep us on contract until the end. Marcus was very supportive and always available even on weekends and holidays. We extremely recommend him as your real state broker!! You will love working with Marcus!!

                      • Marcus is an incredible realtor, and an absolutely wonderful person. We worked with him for over 1.5 years as we searched for a primary home in the Bay Area. As our plans changed and even after putting our search on hold Marcus was always responsive and ready to help any way he could.We could not have been the easiest clients as our search took us from SF to Berkeley, to Oakland to Marin and back around that circle a number of times. Marcus had valuable advice and connections at each of those locations and personally took us through a number of the homes.We finally purchased a home in San Rafael and Marcus was integral in helping us get the offer accepted and close the deal, while paying close attention to make sure our best interests were being met. He has continued to help us with recommendations for contractors and other professional services after the close.You will be thrilled with your choice of Marcus as your real estate agent!

                      • My family and I worked with Marcus Miller to find our first home in San Francisco. I would highly recommend Marcus for the following reasons:Responsiveness: Marcus is incredibly responsive via email, text of phone calls. Given how time sensitive real estate transactions can be, this is an incredible boonLocal Market Knowledge: His knowledge about the SF real estate market is deep and extensive and he was able to provide us with high level insight into a whole host of issues that are particular to SF such as tenant laws, building codes, permits, etc (Note - He is not a licensed professional in all these subjects but he can point in the right direction)Network: Marcus has an excellent network of consultants (financing, legal, etc) that we could lean during the entire processCommunication skills: Marcus is a great people person. Since my family and I were purchasing the property collectively, he had to deal with several different communication styles and effectively managed the process despite the presence of different parties.Strategist: Marcus advised us on the appropriate strategy for the properties we made offers on. To that end, we had a 100% acceptance rate on our offers.From start to finish, Marcus helped us to close on our dream home in under 4 months. I would happily work with him again

                      • Marcus is a very professional and skillful realtor. He is reachable, patient and reliable. He worked hard with us and found our dreamed home.

                      • Marcus is absolutely amazing! I just purchased my first condo in SF all thanks to him! He was my advocate from the very beginning and was excellent in guiding me through the entire process. He is incredibly responsive via texts, calls and emails. I was always completely aware of what was going on and the next steps would be. He kept me sane through a stressful process. I don't know what I would have done without him! I highly recommend Marcus for all your real estate needs. It is your loss if you choose any other realtor!

                      • My wife and I worked with Marcus Miller in the purchase of our home. Marcus was responsive, thoughtful and very knowledgeable throughout the buying process. When it came time to negotiate with the sellers, Marcus was able to communicate our wishes to the seller and got us the price we wanted and credit for all of our closing costs. I highly recommend Marcus, as he is a highly skilled Realtor!

                        - Jane S.
                      • Marcus was incredibly helpful. We had a unique situation and vision. He met with us to learn more, did all the research, was generous to look at properties ahead of time and then found us the perfect house. He was remarkable when it came to the closing of the house: from financing to inspections to ensuring the seller followed through on some loose ends...Marcus was on top of everything. He made buying our first home in SF an enjoyable process that we were able to confidently engage in! Thank you Marcus!

                        - Kristin W.
                      • Marcus was instrumental in helping me decide on which home was right for me and making sure I was asking the right questions. The process can be long and stressful but Marcus made sure when the time came that we were ready to move and aggressively pursue the desired unit. Having a helpful partner with the knowledge and experience to walk me through the process and get me from viewing to offer to closing was invaluable. As a first-time buyer it was great to have someone like Marcus on my side and I would not hesitate to refer him to anyone else looking for a home.
