I highly commend Marlene de Cespedes to sell, buy or rent your home/condo. I used her to sell my Coral Gables and Pinecrest homes and to rent a house in Coral Gables. She was knowledgeable in both neighborhoods and knew the markets for each. She was able to accurately assess the price range for each house and balance my expectations.

Beside the aforementioned, Marlene also consistently exhibited the following qualities:

1. Knowledge: The best way to know a person’s level of expertise is by asking questions. Marlene exceeded my expectations by being able to answer or find the answers to my numerous questions. Her knowledge and timely responses created a level of trust and reliability I needed and expected in my realtor.

2. Communication: One of the easiest ways to make the process of buying or selling a home go smoothly is by having good communication with your realtor. Marlene exceeded this by timely attending to my phone calls, emails and text messages, even when I knew she was busy with other clients. She always made me feel important and comfortable throughout the process.

3. Balance of Expectations: When selling or buying a home, you need a realtor that isn't afraid to be direct and honest. Marlene was not shy in politely and professionally pointing out when my expectations were unrealistic in each market or during the closing process. As a seller, it's easy to get impatient or frustrated with lower than expected offers or difficult buyers, but Marlene balanced my expectations with the realities of my homes, the market and the closing process. She also filtered the stress by handling matters that didn't need my attention, which greatly reduced the stress every buyer or seller feels.

Marlene fully met and exceeded my expectations and made each home a pleasant experience. I highly recommend Marlene as your next realtor!

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing this letter of recommendation for Marlene C. DeCespedes of Douglas Elliman. Marlene was our real estate agent for the sale of our home during a very difficult time for our family. It is important you know this, since a person’s first home, next home or investment property requires a professional that puts you first above all.

Ms. DeCespedes met with my family and took the time to insure we understood the process, requirements for selling a home, prepared the presentation based on market information other than just a listing very common in the industry she works in. Her tenacity in meeting our expectations being the ultimate professional, cannot go unmentioned. The quality of buyers she presented ensured that these were legitimate buyers and not shoppers or other realtors looking for another listing. This further confirmed our choice for her to be our representative.

Ms. DeCespedes was on the ball, always keeping us updated, managed her time to meet with us based on our schedules not the traditional 9-5 type. I want to share with you some of her key strengths and why she should be you real estate professional for a purchase or sale. These qualities are:

- Knowledge: Her expertise and ability to position questions to have you clearly understand the process, timeliness of responses to questions and ability to know what’s going on.- Communications: As a realtor, her ability to convey the message, help us understand and timeliness of her responses. Always available to provide the answer and made it simple.- Managing Expectations: As a seller, you can become desperate, intolerable and unrealistic. Marlene managed the process completely and set the expectations to where we were may comfortable and got us the best price for our home.

I can only speak highly of Marlene and recommend her for your next purchase or sale, she is the BEST and is conscientious of your feelings also. We had to move and she made it so smooth, so personal that you must experience it!

Marlene, must be your first choice!

To Whom It May Concern-

I was thrilled to have Marlene De Cespedes as my Realtor when selling my Coral Gables home. She responded very quickly to every email, text and phone call, gave me great advice, and got a solid offer in just two weeks. She works VERY hard for her clients and best of all, gets results! Marlene is a consummate professional and gives every detail 100%. I would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.

Yours truly,Branden Strickland, EsquireCoral Gables

If you are trying to sell your residence, be it a home, or condo, I would highly recommend Marlene

DeCespedes as your realtor.When my husband and I decided to sell our home, we contacted Marlene. Wow…. she is amazing. On her first visit, she provided us with an accurate market picture of our neighborhood, assisted in providing the price range where our home should be listed, and most of all (if that isn’t enough), she quietly made us feel safe and secure with our decisions.

I am sure that everyone won’t have the exact results, but our home went on the MLS listing on a Friday afternoon and by Noon Saturday it was sold. The pictures that were posted of our home along with her honest assessment that was realistic, is what sold!

As a realtor, her knowledge and understanding of the market made selling our home incredibly easy and stress less. There is no one I would put my trust in more than Marlene.

To Whom It May Concern:

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter in reference to Marlene de Cespedes. I am fortunate to know Marlene for over 25 years both personally and in business. I have interacted with her in several Real Estate transactions in the last few years and I could tell you that they have all been exceptional.

Marlene’s knowledge and insight of the business clearly shows you that she has the pulse on everything that is happening in the luxury market of South Florida.

In summary, all I could say is as we all know there are many real estate agents out there to choose from and very good ones, but positively know they aren’t going to be better than Marlene!

Wishing you the best of luck,
