More about Marla Cruickshank

Hello. I’m a Southern California regional expert, specializing in Bonsall, Fallbrook, and La Jolla. I sell property in these communities (with extensive experience throughout North County San Diego and Southwest Riverside County) because I’m convinced that no other region in Southern California or perhaps even the continent offers such an incredible combination of location, near perfect weather, open spaces, scenic beauty and small-town friendliness. I really believe in this place we call home and that’s why I own properties here and base my business here. The truth is, I’m simply passionate about real estate. I live, sleep, and breathe this areas’ homes and lifestyle. I’m also supremely committed to my clients. It’s really personal. Having bought and sold many of my own homes, I know first hand what it’s like to be both a buyer and a seller — I’ve been in your shoes and I ...

  • Marla listed and sold my home

      Marla Cruickshank and Kieth not only assisted us in selling our house, but also journeyed with us as we searched for a more accommodating home. With her market knowledge she helped us price our home just right and we had offers within a week or two of listing it for sale. Meanwhile we house shopped with the Cruickshanks each Saturday in the following month, averaging 5 home tours each time. They are knowledgeable, patient, professional, and fun; it was really was a pleasure working with them during our house hunt. We finally found a wonderful and unique home in Fallbrook, Marla heard it was going on market and we looked at it the very morning it was listed and put in our offer. We've been loving this place ever since! Buying and selling properties is more complicated today than ever before. There is a LOT of paperwork. In our case there were three parties to coordinate in the deals; ourselves, a buyer, and a seller. Marla prepared the documents and kept the process going in a knowledgeable and efficient manner. There were several instances during our transition to a new home, where Marla and Kieth went above and beyond what one would normally expect from a Realtor, these are really good people.

        Marla is a consummate, proficient, and honest professional - in the sea of crooked, dishonest "real estate agents" - therefore, I will ALWAYS choose her when doing any deals in the real estate realm!

      • Marla is the master of details. Whenever we called we were responded to immmediately. And I mean immediately. It was the best possible experience you could possibly have with a real estate agent. Our escrow fell out at the last second the first time and rather than be down about it she just went back to work for us and we ended up getting our first choice at a better price! I would recommend Marla unconditionally. She is a consummate professional.

      • Marla is the best! Not only is she very professional and organized but shes also very friendly and kind. She showed my husband and I around Fallbrook (we were new to the area) and did not put any pressure on us at all. We told her we just wanted to get to know the area and she said shed be happy to take us around. She came prepared with multiple properties for us to look at and was very knowledgeable about the area. Then, a few months later when we were ready to buy, Marla made the process simple and easy. We were in escrow for 6 months with a short sale and Marla called us every 2 weeks to give us an update and stay in touch. I was impressed by her being proactive so we never had to wonder what was going on. Once we finally closed, Marla was just as excited for us as we were. Marla is the total package I would highly, highly recommend her to anyone!

      • I did an extensive search before selecting Marla and her team to list my parents property. Everything Marla said she and her team would do was done professionally, on time and as promised from the marketing (virtual presentation was way cool) to the showings. It was a larger property so we needed the right buyer and Marlas knowledge of the area, marketing expertise and network provided us with a steady stream of qualified prospects. The house sold quickly and within a few thousand dollars of our asking price.

      • Marla patiently waited until the property was ready and then diligently worked to see the sale through. Her experience was clear from her attention to all the details to ensure nothing fell through at the last minute. She was prompt to keep me informed and easy to reach. I especially appreciated her willingness to work with me being remote during the sales process and not being intimidated by a less than ideal situation w/ an ex on the property. I highly recommend her as a kind-hearted, professional, hardworking agent, who knows her stuff!

      • My experience with Keith and Marla was phenomenal. They were on top of everything. They were very kind and respectful and willing to talk to you anytime. What a good team and (I) wish the best for both of them.

      • If we could give Marla 10 stars, we would! One of the best realtors in every way; patient, responsive, knowledgeable and a great sense of humor. We actually began to miss seeing her once our home went into escrow shes truly an excellent realtor!

      • Marla and Keith of UpCountri Homes & Estates are professional, friendly proactive with timelines, documents and people. They were easy to work with and were always available to address our questions and concerns. We were out-of-state sellers that needed agents that could coordinate all aspects of selling our home, including inspections, repairs, and be onsite to monitor those activities. Their website showcased our home with excellent photos and a detailed description such that we received a full price offer on the first listing day. We highly recommend their services as they went above and beyond expectations to sell our home quickly.

      • I cant say enough nice things about Keith and Marla. They are a perfect team together and when you engage their services, they become your team. We had a great feeling about them from the start, but these feelings were born out 1000% during the entire process they were always in our court, showed unwavering integrity, and never took the easy way out and it resulted in a very successful transaction. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend them. You will be glad you chose Keith and Marla Cruickshank as your realtors.

        - Jeff Cretcher
      • Two thumbs up for Keith, Marla and company. Thoroughly professional, best-in-class service. I would recommend their firm without hesitation. Not only did they do a wonderful job on the sale of my home, but they also found the exact right home for me to purchase. Timing was everything! I couldnt have done it without them.
