We are home.®
My wife and I relocated to Charlotte from St. Louis this summer. Marian was able to find us the perfect place - a house my wife loved at a price I loved. Neither my wife or I had ever been to Charlotte so we knew nothing about the area. We were shocked to see how quickly homes sold there. We needed an expert realtor who could give us the lay of the land, who could quickly get a sense of the type of home we were looking for and who could make arrangements for us to see the homes quickly. Marian was up to the task! Prior to the search she went the extra mile to fully understand what we were looking for (and we are very picky). During the search she made efficient use of our time. After the search she provided guidance and support during the offer and purchase process - always looking out for our best interest during each step. Throughout the entire process Marian was awesome to work with. We are so happy to have had the opportunity to get to know and work with Marian and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home. THANK YOU MARIAN!
We were delighted to have secured our home in Huntersville, NC. Marian Shapiro at Allen Tate Real Estate listened to our needs and wants and was able to present properties meeting the parameters we gave her. By the time we got to the closing table (relatively fast) we had gained a new friendship. Without hesitation we would recommend Marian Shapiro specifically, as well as the Allen Tate team to others.
We are happy to recommend Marian Shapiro. She gave us excellent advice and support throughout the sales process from getting our home ready to show to closing during a compressed timeframe. We went under contract in 3 days, and closed in under 30 days! Marian promptly responded to any call, text or email. She went above and beyond to help us. Thank you Marian!
We are so grateful for Marian's expertise, professionalism and all around guidance throughout the home buying process. We were moving from out of state and Marian could not have made the process any easier. We are truly grateful for Marian's help and highly recommend her if you are looking for a seamless home selling and buying experience.
Marian was wonderful to work with! She spent an entire day showing us around the whole of Charlotte to help us with our relocation, and somehow managed to find us not one, but two perfect houses in less than a week. We love the home she found for us!
We relocated to Charlotte area from Ohio. Our realtor back in Ohio introduced us to Marian. After a few house hunting tours we knew we had a good agent. Marian gave us many advice from housing style, neighborhood to community, etc. This sounds like what every real estate agent will do. However, what special about Marian is that she quickly gains your trust. She gave us advice, but not pressure. It is the trust and confidence we gained, when we agreed Marian to serve as a dual agent in our house buying process. She did an excellent job in this transaction and proved to be fair to both buyer and seller. However, Marian did not leave us behind after the closing. She is going extra mile to help us new comers, to settle down, providing us information regarding local the community and services. She is also playing a critical role to ensure the agreed repair tasks are completed. In conclusion, we are very happy with the experience with Marian. She is a highly skilled real estate agent. Highly recommend.
Marian was fantastic to work with! She was an expert in the market and a fantastic resource for my family during our relocation from Chicago to Lake Norman. I was particularly impressed with her ability to analyze the true value of properties once we were prepared to make an offer. She was very concerned that we did not over pay for our new home!
Working with Marian was a pleasure in so many ways, from start to finish Marion was there. The journey for us being new to the area was about finding the right home in the right area and at the right price. From the start of the process Marian listened to what we were looking for and was able to narrow the search and show us relevant properties which enabled us to find and buy our new home that met all our needs in a short period of time and one that we are truly excited about living in!. However this was only the beginning as there was the initial negotiation (with Marian's guidance and assistance), the then the coordination of the inspectors and specialists (roof, AC, etc) for final repair quotes and renegotiating based on those findings, Marian led this effort on our behalf with very favorable results. It doesn't end there, we have to agree on a closing date, there is coordination of information between the lender, the closing attorney, HOA, insurance, etc. that need to be in sync for a successful closing, Marian made sure we had all our ducks in a row in this regard and of course there is the electric, gas, water hookups which Marian provided all the contact info and insured we timed it to close. What we truly appreciated about Marian was that she was always available, willing to be onsite at our new home when we were unable, her recommendations were spot on and she is a subject matter expert and it shows in every aspect of selecting, buying and closing on a home.....she knows this business!. Marian cares about her customer and was incredibly reliable from start to finish.. she went above and beyond on many occasions and we felt as if we were her only client as we received a very personalized service... Marian is very easy to work with, personable and we connected from day one! Thank you!!!
It was a pleasure working with Marian as our realtor in the sale of the home where we had lived for the past 15 years. She was caring and supportive throughout the process from the beginning step of getting our home ready to show to the final details of closing on the sale. Marian was prompt and responsive with every question or concern we expressed. Most of all, Marian always followed through on everything she said she would do. She helped us have the best possible experience in selling our home and we will always be grateful!
Marian served as our trusted real estate adviser as we relocated from Greater Boston to the Charlotte, NC area. She quickly learned our tastes, preferences, and requirements, and helped us understand the options available to us within our price range. Once we were ready to make an offer, she guided us through the home-buying process from a distance of 800+ miles. Throughout our business relationship, she was responsive, supportive, and always had our best interests in mind. Most important, she's a lovely person who is a pleasure to work with. There's no question that Marian helped ease the stress of relocation. We highly recommend her.
Marian is awesome. I will confess to being frustrated with her early advice on preparing our home - she advised a lot of work! But her wisdom and tenacity paid off in a terrific way. She was a great negotiator, and steady and wise counselor, and she had a great eye for detail and staging. She also became a good friend. She went above and beyond any expectations we ever had for a person selling our home. She was a strong advocate for our needs as well as a smart diagnostician of what was needed to sell our home quickly and well. You will love working with Marian; you will be the beneficiaries of excellent skills and will enjoy being and working with a wonderful person.
We have worked with Marian twice now, once to purchase a home and this time to sell one. We didn't even consider reaching out to anyone else when the time came to sell. Marian is unbelievably knowledgeable about the market and what it takes to get a home sold. She was wonderful every step of the way, helped us work out the kinks to finalize the sale and her advice was spot on at every turn. We will not hesitate to work with her again.
Marian will find you the house of your dreams. We covered a large area and a few different towns, but she knew what I wanted and we found it. And now I looking forward to starting the next chapter of my life in beautiful Denver, NC.
To say that working with Marian Shapiro was THE BEST real estate experience we've had to date, would be an understatement. We have moved 6 times in 18 yrs. so we've done this dance a few times. Marian guided us through the process with consummate tact, expertise and elegance. Holding true to the commitment of the process, her clients and herself, Marian left no question unanswered, no issue unresolved and no concern unaddressed. We are forever grateful to Marian for making what is one of the most stressful situations for people, a more palatable experience. All that, and, she's a really nice person!
We all thank you for the good job you did selling Mom's house. It is amazing to think it was only on the open real estate market for two weeks & one day when you secured a contract to buy that was well seen to completion this past Friday.I was pleased with the hearty recommendation; calling upon you, Marian Shapiro to lead the endeavor with professional expertise.The buyers are exactly who we had prayed & hoped would come. It was important to us that people who had proper respect & purpose for the house & property would purchase. The buyers seem to be the perfect answer to our prayers.We appreciate and thank you for a tremendous job WELL DONE! Lynne H.
When we first met Marian we had a good understanding of what we needed to do to sell our home for the best possible price. Marian's marketing plan was extensive in her recommendations. My wife and I chose to accomplish the majority of her suggestions. IT PAID OFF!! Our house was sold in 7 days!! Marian was professional in every way. She was helpful, friendly and courteous in all our communications. What I appreciated the most was her availability when I needed her and believe me, there were many 'issues' that needed attention. I can highly recommend Marian to both buyers and sellers in the world of Allen Tate Real Estate. Marian has my thanks for a job well done.
We loved working with Marian to find our new home. She truly gave us expert advise. This lady does her homework when it comes to finding a home for you. I highly recommend using Marian in buying or selling your home, she will always look out for your best interests!
We engaged with Marian to sell our house in Huntersville. It was a relocation sale and in our very first meeting she showed up with a lot of research (comps, adjustments, etc.) which was very impressive. We decided to work with her and it turned out to be the best decision. Marian was very professional and also personable. She showed a lot of patience and worked out everything with us. She is also a certified stager so helped us decorate the house and make it look very attractive. Her network included a suite of best photographer, handyman and everyone you'd need to sell your house. She also worked diligently with our relocation company and all appraisers to get the best value. We sold in 21 days and were on our way to next adventure. We highly recommend her.
Where do I begin? It's tough because she blew my mind, she overly exceeded my expectations throughout the entire selling process and I mean that whole heartedly. My situation was tough. I was selling my rental house and I lived two states away, with little to no time to invest in making sure my house was ready to sell. I had been working with another agent and I would say that they were along the lines of 'typical'. It was purely chance and what I consider to be a divine miracle that I met Marian. She stepped right in, took the reins and went WAY beyond the call of duty to make sure the house was totally ready to go! She communicated with me constantly and did whatever she could to help make me stress and worry free. I can go on and on with all of the accolades for this wonderful lady. If you are looking for an amazing agent that will make sure you have the best experience that will also maximize your deal, then seriously, give Marian a call. I guarantee you can not make a better decision.
Marian assisted me with both selling my home and purchasing a new one. I found her to be upfront and honest which is what I was looking for in a realtor. Marian's business acumen is on target and her advice/insight was always accurate. In addition, her network of contractors for closing purposes was also excellent. I highly recommend using Marian and will most definitely use her again.
My husband and I recently relocated to the Charlotte area and thank goodness we were linked up with Marian for our house hunting needs! We had a limited amount of time to find a home and Marian worked very hard to ensure she had a great selection of possible homes for us when we went out for 2 days to hunt. After looking at several homes we found the most beautiful house and she went to work on closing the deal for us. We had some trials and tribulations throughout the closing process mostly relating to home repairs but Marian stayed diligent with the sellers to ensure all issues were dealt with - this even after we moved into the home and still had a few open issues. It was great to work with Marian as she really took the time to learn about my husband and I and focused our house hunt around our personalities and our specific needs. I highly recommend Marian to be your next agent as I am sure you will not be disappointed! Thank you Marian for all you did for us!
Marian was wonderful in making our move from TN to NC extremely successful! She is very good at her job, very personable and very quick to respond to emails, phone calls etc... She is with you every step of the way! If we move again, we will use Marian as our realtor and we will definitely refer her to friends and family!
I was very fortunate to have Marian Shapiro as my realtor. She was there from the beginning getting my home ready for sale. She brought in accessories to make my home more saleable, lamps, pictures, bedding and so many other items. When repairs had to be made, she sought out able individuals to make those repairs. As a 73 year old male, she even helped me at the design center with choices for my new home. She was always in contact with me; phone calls, emails and in person. I found Marian to be a professional and attentive realtor who I highly recommend. "Kind, patient, efficient, and knowledgeable. Marian really takes the time for you as your agent and as your friend. You'll quickly realize that she's the one to go with."
We are so grateful for your wisdom throughout the process of selling our home, and purchasing a new home. I can't imagine what the outcome would have been without you! Thank you for everything you have done for us!
Marian is truly a master of her craft!
We are so grateful for all you've done on our behalf; from selling our condo quickly, to keeping us sane and grounded during the construction of our new home when circumstances could easily have become overwhelming. You're the best!
We were first time homebuyers and Marian really listened to what we wanted from our first home. She paid attention to every detail we mentioned and hand-selected homes that were so great we had trouble choosing between all of them. She explained all the parts of the home purchasing process so that we felt comfortable at every step. We never felt rushed or pressured. She worked with us at our pace to find us the perfect home. She is very personable and enjoyable to work with. With a life-changing purchase such as this, we wanted a person we could trust and rely on, and that person for us was Marian. We have already recommended her services to our friends and family and we couldn't have asked for a better realtor to work with. If we ever sell or buy again, Marian will be our number one choice!
Thank you so much for everything! From selling our house so quickly in a tough market, to guiding us through the overwhelming process of new construction; we couldn't have done any of it without you!
I am so grateful for your efforts and advice throughout the process of selling my home. I felt so fortunate to have you on my side; advocating on my behalf. What a great experience working with someone who truly excels at her job!
Marian was the most helpful real estate agent we have ever worked with. Not only did Marian sell our house in a week in a challenging market, she helped us determine where we wanted to live. Marian took us on a grand tour of Charlotte and showed us many excellent possibilities. In the end we found our absolute perfect house. We felt that Marian had our best interests at heart at all times. We highly recommend Marian Shapiro, and will certainly work with her again in the future!
