Marcus is incredibly straight forward, no nonsense, not pushy type of realtor. A friend and advisor first. He's readily available via phone, email, text and will always confirm and acknowledge any questions, documents, etc. with you so you are never wondering if he's working with you 100% of the time. I'm not going to lie, we aren't the easiest of clients but Marcus is very patient. We've changed our minds a few times and had various things come up which moved us in one direction or another. Throughout it all, the constant, even presence was Marcus always wanting to do what's best for us. He'll always be my realtor and friend and now that we purchased a new home, Marcus is now my realtor for selling my current home.
Marcus has really good communication and is available to answer questions day or night. He offers strategies to stand out among the crowd in the competitive San Francisco market. Marcus listened to our needs and was sensitive regarding timelines. He was not aggressive and made sure we talked through all the different scenarios and outcomes before making a decision. We never felt pressured to do anything we were not comfortable with. He makes you feel like his top priority client. Overall, my husband and I would highly recommend him to anyone out there looking for an honest realtor for the sale/purchase of a property.
I'm a first time home-buyer. From the start, Ryan and Marcus were very warm, attentive, and clear with me on how to prepare and what to expect from the process, always expressing that my comfort comes first, helping me set expectations about potential compromises, and most importantly emphasising that this journey is one of relationship-building. Despite the circumstances (a global pandemic), I felt like I was well taken care of on both the search and closing fronts. I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly my particular process ended up being. Thank you, Marcus and Ryan for helping me out!
I loved working with Marcus, Ryan and the whole Helm Team! They made this process so easy for a first time home buyer. I would recommend them to anyone I know who is looking to buy a home.
We found Marcus through a referral and he was amazing to work with through out the entire process! From the initial virtual call, to meeting in person during tours, to holding our hand (first time home buyers here) through every seemly dumb question during escrow and close. Once we closed, he helped to transition us into homeownership with advice and recommendations on contractors and maintenance. We couldnt have been more happy to work with Marcus and would have no trouble recommending him to close friends and family!
Marcus and his team were great every step of the way. We reached out to Marcus on a whim but never considered other options because they were so great the whole way. They kept us informed, answered all of our questions, and helped us get our dream home! Thank you!
Working with Marcus and Justin surpassed expectations. Justin tirelessly coordinated showings and presented offers in the complex and rapidly evolving SF housing market. Once I finally had an offer accepted, Marcus and Justin were professional, organized, and communicative allowing the transaction to complete smoothly on a fast timeline and without any problems. Both are highly recommended!
Marcus recently (Jan 2020) helped me sell my apartment in San Francisco. Really happy with the whole process as I live overseas and need a trusted local partner to help me through the transaction from start to finish. I had worked with Marcus when I originally purchased the apartment in 2012 and knew he could give me a realistic perspective on the local market and get everything organised from cleaning - staging - marketing - inspections - closing. Really happy to have to have worked with Marcus again as he kept things as stress-free as possible. Would highly recommend to anyone in the SF Bay Area looking to buy or sell a property!
Marcus is a 5 star Broker who puts the needs, wishes and desires of his clients above everything else.
I want to give Marcus 10 stars. He is an amazing realtor to work with, and I'm so thankful we had his assistance as we navigated the home buying process for the first time. His depth of knowledge on all matters is incredible, and he has highly qualified people he works with, for whatever you need done to your new home. Marcus was extremely prompt in responding to all calls, texts, requests, and anything we asked of him. We were able to do a 21 day close during the Covid-19 pandemic, and it would not have been possible without Marcus' assistance every step of the way. I could not have been more pleased with Marcus Miller, the crew at Helm, and the entire process. If you are looking for a realtor, do yourself a favor and talk to Marcus.
