“Two thumbs up for Keith, Marla and company”
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 couldn’t have done it without them.
“they were always in our court”
I can’t 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 wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. You will be glad you chose Keith and Marla Cruickshank as your realtors.
“we received a full price offer on the first listing day”
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.
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 – she’s truly an excellent realtor!
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.
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!
“Everything… was done professionally, on time and as promised”
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 Marla’s 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….
“the total package”
Marla is the best! Not only is she very professional and organized but she’s 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 she’d 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!
“trustworthy, personable and hardworking”
Marla was a fantastic agent! We had dealt with a few agents before her and none of them were as consistent, professional and helpful as she is. She got us into our new home very quickly, and was more than happy to answer all of our questions as first time home buys. She made herself available to us day and night which we really appreciated. If you are looking for someone trustworthy, personable and hardworking I would absolutely recommend her to be your agent.
“master of details”
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.
“a breath of fresh air”
Marla is a breath of fresh air in the real estate jungle. We have bought many properties and have had dealings with many brokers and real estate agents, none of of come close to Marla for miles. Her delivery of services across the entire spectrum of buying a house made our life easier and the experience hassle free. Timely and prompt communication to all our queries, description of the buying process were professionally handled. To top it all she contributed towards our home warranty. Way to go Marla ! If you are looking for a top notch real estate professional look no further than Marla.
I was very fortunate to find Marla when I was looking for a house. She made the whole process flow smoothly. Even with the ups and downs you have to go through, and the waiting, she knew just what to say and what needed to be done. Rarely would I use the word “perfect” but I am very comfortable using that word to describe her work ethic and her responsiveness. I would recommend her to everyone, with no reservations. No one could have worked harder to help me find the house I am so happy to now call home.
Could not be happier with our choice…
Marla sold my mother’s home in a little over a month. [I] Could not be happier with our choice in using her. Definitely, she will be my number #1 choice when, in the future, I may need her services. It WENT great! She has charm, a lovely smile, and most of all is really good at what she does.
She was in constant/daily contact with me during the listing of my mother’s home. She made the entire process so much easier for me – during a difficult time. Fallbrook is lucky to have such a “caring” realtor in every way.
