    • Our story is pretty unique or maybe I am nave as this was our first home purchase. We had been casually using the Inhabit East Bay personalized home portal for almost two years prior to our purchase, I highly recommend this feature from Stephanie and Mari if youre working with them and youre shopping around as it will give you listings that are not on the popular apps like Redfin or Realtor. Great way to find possible hidden gems! However, we did find our home on Redfin in the end and we did compete with multiple offers. 21 to be exact! Thanks to Maris expertise in the area we got our initial offer accepted as one of three to be countered. Thats about where everything we thought would be normal in a home purchase ended for us. The lovely couple listing the condo was moving do to a job change within a company they already worked for so we ended up dealing with a relocation company for the rest of the transaction. I will spare you all of the details but after some negotiation and three, yes (3) appraisals Mari and Stephanie got us our dream home on our very first offer!!!

    • Mari is a very good communicator, she did a great job of explaining the home buying process to us. She gave us helpful information from the time we met until we closed and received the keys to our new home. She was extremely warm, patient and quick to respond to any issues or questions that arose. Prior to meeting Mari were not sure if we could ever afford to buy home in the Bay Area. We literally looked for two weeks with her help before our second offer was accepted and we later became homeowners. We found the home we wanted, Mari wrote us a competitive offer and two days later we were in contract (we did this with only 7% down). She did a good job of advocating for us and negotiating with the seller to cut a good amount of our cost. Thank you Mari for your help, we are extremely appreciative.

    • If you are looking to buy or sell your home you absolutely NEED to use E3 Reality!! I recently used them for the sale of a property and the purchase of my current home. Working with Mari exceeded any expectation that I had. She was extremely professional, understood modern day marketing, and went above and beyond for me as the client. Mari took precautions that I did not know existed to protect me with both my sale and purchase, and not only got the job done for me, but actually explained to me how the process worked. This was so important to me, as Maris pricing strategy initially confused me by listing a little low, but when we were the busiest open house in the neighborhood, and sold after the first showing, it all made sense! Mari always got back to me in a more than respectable time frame, and what I loved most was her honesty. Mari did not promise me anything that could she not deliver on, and negotiated a substantially better deal on both my sale and purchase than I thought was possible!! I am the type of person who likes to be in control of any business deals that I am conducting, which made it very difficult for me to step back and let Mari take control. I will tell you now, I am SOOOOO glad that I did. I trusted Mari and I cannot be more pleased with the results.As long as I am buying and selling I will ONLY use E3 Reality

    • My husband and I are first time home buyer so my brother recommended Mari Wines (as she also helped him buy his place). She definitely helped us through the steps on buying our first house. She explained every details on what we need to do on our end to make the process as smooth as possible. She made us feel comfortable, and its fun to work with her as she did her best to get us the house we really wanted. And she DID! We are so happy with our house.

    • Mari Wines is magical! We debated for years on whether or not we should sell. We'd met with a few agents but we just couldn't commit.Then came Mari Wines. After one meeting, we knew Mari and E3 Realty were the best ones for us and it was the best decision we could've made!Mari listened to what we wanted and most importantly, understood what we needed.She is a master negotiator and doesn't back down when it comes to what's best for her clients. She is always professional, yet caring and patient too. She was never too busy to explain anything in detail. Mari helped us stage our home with minimal effort. After one open house weekend, we received an offer ABOVE asking price!!Although leaving our house was incredibly difficult, thanks to Mari, we're in our dream home and making new memories with family and friends. We will forever be grateful to Mari Wines!!

    • Mari was such a joy to work with from start to finish of the daunting home buying process! As a first-time bay area home buyer, it was so nice to have Mari as a knowledgable resource in the real estate market. We truly put her to work; from requesting to see many houses and asking millions of questions, she helped guide us in the right direction with a smile on her face the entire time. I truly appreciated the tough negotiating when it was time for us to make an offer and in the end we love our new home. Glad to have had the E3 team alongside this journey!

    • When we realized our relocation to Connecticut was happening much sooner, we were excited and afraid our home would not sell for what we wanted. It was especially difficult for us with my husband having to travel for work during the most important time, which was putting our home on the market. On top of all that, I was in a half leg cast and had zero knowledge of how to prep our home before putting it on the market. All I have to say, is thank God we had Mari Wines on our side. She told us what really needed to be done prior to getting our home on the market and taught us how important staging and professional photos are. After she toured our home, there was not much staging that needed to be done. She actually had a stash of staging goods and did it herself, mind you, she was our realtor, not stager, but morally, she felt we would be paying for a stager for no reason. What realtor do you know, who would actually come over after a days work, bring her staging items and spend hours getting your home ready for photos and the open house? I honestly couldnt believe it. Our home looked absolutely beautiful, sold for what we wanted and appraised for even more.From start to finish, we always knew Mari had our best interest at heart. She is very knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient and incredibly generous with her time (including mornings, evenings, and weekends over the course of several months) and knows the ins-and-outs of selling a home in the East Bay area. She also found us a great realtor in Connecticut.We cannot imagine having a more positive experience with Mari and recommend her without hesitation for anyone looking for some peace of mind, while selling their home in this stressful market.

    • I started my home search with Mari about 3 years ago in searchof my first home. I had no idea what I was doing or what to askor how to look, but she and Stephanie guided me througheverything and even guided me to ask specific questions for myown knowledge. We went through several neighborhoodstogether, a few budget changes and a good increase from myoriginal idea and quickly learned what made sense for me whilestill getting what I wanted. Ultimately, after several offers notwinning and even getting into a contract and backing outbecause I didn't feel it was right, we ended up in 2019 and ahouse on Parker Ave. It appeared for me because Mari knewexactly what I was looking for, what my style was and especiallywhat my deal breakers were. I can't say enough how much thatdeep personal knowledge and attention made all the differencein searching for a home. We made the offer, got into contractand it was all smooth sailing from there. I had so manyquestions and each one got answered to the detail. Can't sayhow nervous, anxious, and stressed out I would get but shedefinitely helped ease me through the whole process!Can't say enough to how excited I am for my first home, andhow amazing it was working with Mari and her team to make mygoal a reality!

    • Selling your first home is very bittersweet; its an emotionaljourney to let go and an exciting journey that empowers yourfuture. When embarking on something like this its improtant thatyou find a company and an agent whom understand that journeyand tailor their genuine approach and their strategies to it. Mariand the E3 team do just that. They have a well balancedapproach to slowing down enough to identify what matters mostto you while not detracting from the speed and velocity youdesire when someone is taking action on your behalf of eitherthe sale or purchase. Everyones situation is unique, in the caseof my home sale I had moved across the country and informedMari I would need a realtor who could function highlyindependent due to my new job; she not only was extremelyconsiderate about my time, but she strategically createdtransactional and communication touch points that were mostimpactful for my remote home sale. Additionally she went aboveand beyond out of the kindness of her heart to step in at timeswhen my family could not go to the property to take care ofbusiness that had arised. I cant say enough about her, herapproach and the way the team operates seamlessly together !They have a client for life in me

    • There are many options out there with regard to buying & sellingyour home, but our experience with Mari emphasized why its soimportant to have an excellent agent. Several times during theprocess of buying our new home and selling our existing one,my husband and I said to each other, Could you imagine if wedidnt have Mari during this?Mari is everything you want in an agent - smart, ethical,responsive, accountable, hard-working, calm, and a greatnegotiator. She cares so much about your experience as herclient, she will go to great lengths to make sure youre highlysatisfied. We had several rounds of intense negotiations whenbuying our home, and Mari got us what we wanted. She alsohelped us find fantastic interest rate. With both home purchasesshe got our first offer accepted by the seller. On the listing side,she advised us on how to get the sale price we wanted (whichwe got), and even set a record for highest sale price on our unitwithin our neighborhood. We will always continue to work withMari, shes a true professional that brings top value. Thank youMari!
