" I simply can't say enough great things about Marci Pruett! Easily the most knowledgeable, attentive and capable real estate agent I've known, she is also warm, open, sincere and an absolute pleasure to work with. She took a genuine interest in my unique situation and helped find the perfect condo for me. She is incredibly proactive, always on top of even the smallest details and consistently available to answer questions. Her dedication is amazing, continuing to work on my closing even while on her honeymoon, despite my many objections! I feel truly privileged to have the opportunity to know such a wonderful person, thanks for everything Marci!!!"
“I have no words to express the experience that I had coming in to buying my VERY FIRST HOME! I have heard many bad stories and people saying that it is not the right time, especially it being your first home. My husband and I of 16 years came into the home buying process blind and needed some direction so we searched online and finally went out on a limb and submitted a request on a home that we had an interest on. At that very moment I got butterflies in my tummy and looked at my husband and told him “This is it, it will either be a yes or a no!” The next morning we received a phone call from Marci (the best name in the world) that we could make an appointment to look at the house and we agreed on a time. On the way to the home my hands were both shaking and my husband was getting lost due to his nerves knowing we just saw the house the night before. We met Marci and the introduction was amazing! Just meeting her we both knew that it was going to happen because not only was she helping us find the RIGHT home for our family but we were also building a relationship.
Being a first time home buyer was scary but we knew exactly what we wanted because we had been waiting for a very long time. We looked and looked but the great thing about it was that Marci listened to our wants, our concerns, and just us as a couple rather than just helping us find a home. After 3 months of searching, getting our pre-approval, and getting all of the ducks in a row, we finally found one we wanted. I was scared because it was happening all so fast and what if we did not get the bid… so I checked and checked on the home and online it said that a bid was made and the offer was accepted. Later that day Marci touched base with me and said she had some news which the tone to me did not sound reassuring until she said “Yes, an offer was accepted and the house was ours!!!!
All I can really say is that the journey that Marci led us down was not only professional, accurate with the information she gave us, and short, it was also a friendship that was built from the trust she had in us as people and the trust we had in her as an advisor. I cannot find the words to write how grateful my family and I are to Marci because she changed our lives in more than 1 way.
It is always hard to find people that you can trust especially when it involves money and family and Marci was always there when we needed her. It was more than an agent client relationship it was a trustworthy friendship. Marci treated us like family and we will be in debt to her for that. Thank you again!"

“Marci is the best! I’ve known her for a few years now and when I told her I was looking to buy a house, she couldn’t have been more helpful. She went out of her way to help me get what I wanted. She’s very knowledgeable, kept me informed and worked hard behind the scenes to get the process completed…which was no easy task. I was living in Virginia at the time and used a VA loan which turned out to be a complicated process. Marci stayed on top of it all. I cannot think of anything that could have gone better. Marci was there every step of the way! I love my house and look forward to many good times in Coronado. Thanks again!!!”
"Thanks to Marci, I have everything I was looking for in my new home. She listened intently to what I was looking for and made sure I was comfortable with the entire process. It was amazing to have a Realtor who was truly excited to be looking at homes with me and looking out for my best interest. As a first time buyer in San Diego, I was relieved to have someone that would answer all my questions without hesitation. I never felt any pressure from her but her immediate attention to my needs made me feel like I was her only client! Marci is absolutely passionate about the work she does and helping people find the home that is right for them."
"Having Marci Jardine as the selling agent for the home we purchased was the best experience we have had purchasing a home. Marci was always very pleasant, upbeat, understanding of our concerns, and responsive to our requests. She always answered every question with complete honesty and openness. Marci even negotiated on our behalf, making it clear to us that her objective was to make us 100% happy in all aspects of the purchase. We never felt pushed or overwhelmed, but rather welcomed and informed. We would highly and completely recommend Marci at any time."
David and Amy Wilsted
"Marci Jardine is not only a true professional, but she makes the real estate process enjoyable and stress-free. She was dedicated to finding our perfect home, and was able to do so by asking the right questions and listening to our concerns and needs. We bought a home in Colorado while residing in Chicago, and never felt stressed by the distance. We knew we were in good hands with Marci working for us. She constantly exceeded our expectations with her follow through, knowledge, and attentiveness. Marci's professionalism and warm personality enables her to stand out from the rest. We'd recommend her to anyone."
Phillip and Anne Hodge
"Moving our whole family from NY and searching for a house as first time homeowners was proving to be as much stress as anyone could handle, until we crossed paths with Marci Jardine. She took a long list of "wants" and worked with a tight deadline, making the whole process seem easy but most important, stress free, and all this from a distance. It was so easy to trust her given her impeccable work ethic and diligent customer approach. We love our home, it was everything we wanted and more, and Marci made sure she left us with more than that; she built a community amongst the neighbors who had the privilege to be her customers that is the envy of every other block, as we continue her legacy of celebrating special events and helping each other out. We would recommend her in a heartbeat."
The Daza family
"Marci Jardine was a true professional from the start. I was impressed with the amount of opportunities she presented, the personal attention she provided and at the end, her negotiating prowess. She was truly a pleasure to work with."
"Marci Jardine is an amazing agent.. We had been relocated and were trying to purchase a new home from nearly 1000 miles away. Marci calmed our nerves, fears and held our hand through the closing and subsequent relocation and move-in. She was so good and we would recommend her to any buyer or seller. We couldn't be happier in our home and our continued relationship with Marci. In fact, we love her so much she assisted in two additional transactions for our family. My Mother purchased a Parade home from Marci and my Grandfather also purchased a home from her. I would recommend her as an agent to ANYONE looking to buy or sell a home."
