It is my absolute pleasure to give Mariama a FIVE star rating. Mariama worked with my family and I to find our DREAM home. Not only were we first time home buyers, but we were also very new to the Richmond, CA area.

Mariama was super patient and understanding to meet the needs of our family. As this was our first home buying experience, each of our family members wanted something different. Mariama was able to find us the PERFECT home in the East Bay. Mariama is a realtor that knows her craft from industry experience, she knows the East Bay neighborhoods and market demand. I would recommend no other than Mariama as your next realtor. Patient, kind, friendly, and knowledgeable are few words to describe Mariama.

THANK YOU again Mariama for helping my family find and close the deal to our dream home. She's the best - Mora family approved!
I highly recommend Mariama! She was wonderful to work with. My lender recommended her to me and I am so glad he did! She is friendly, knowledgeable, optimistic, and easy to contact. As a first time homebuyer, I needed guidance throughout the whole process. She made it stress free for me from the beginning till the end. Even when we were dealing with difficult sellers she handled them with ease. She also made sure that every little detail was handled and resolved. We closed in less than a month! I love my home, thanks to Mariama!

Mariama is efficient, prompt and very professional! I wasn't even going to buy a home until later on in the year, but she advised me that with this current market----- the time was now. She hooked me up with Chris Ruiz (lender) and between the 2 of them they had me in my home in less than a month!! Is she awesome? Yes, she's awesome!!!! I would go with her hands down! The thing with Mariama, is that she always have her clients' best interest at heart through out and even after the deal is close. She's a gem!
Mariama was such a pleasure to work with. She is a hard worker who goes the extra mile to make sure that her clients are extremely happy with the sale/purchase of their home.
Mariama researched a house for me that I was going to bid on. Eventually, an offer was placed on the house exceeded my budget so I never submitted an offer but she was excellent to work with. She went on site to take photos and provided me with lots of details to help me make a smart decision. I recommend her highly.
Client
I cannot recommend Mariama enough! From the start, Mariama and her assistant Ceara came across as experienced and knowledgeable. I had a hard situation with a unresponsive, poss unethical prop mgr who was dragging her feet but they were able to still keep things moving and had a plan and backup plans of attack. Mariama was always able to quickly reply to any questions I had, so I always felt "in the loop" and able to ask questions at anytime. She has her own crews that she manages and will help with choosing and managing contractors so I wouldn't have to manage it myself, if I wanted to utilize them. I would definitely come back to Mariama for my next property purchase or sale!
Miriama was super helpful and generous with her time when I was looking in Hercules while on a home search visit from out of state. Even though I was just exploring the market, she treated me like a #1 client. In the end my move to CA was postponed indefinitely, but if the situation changes Miriama would be my first call in looking for new home.
Sr. Reporting and Analysis Manager
Mariama is an excellent realtor. She is extremely accessible and quick to respond/act. She is also quiet knowledgeable and knows the intricacies of real estate. I highly recommend Mariama if you are in the market for real estate specially in the bay area (east bay side) .

*** AMAZING, PHENOMENAL, THE BEST*** MG (My nickname for Mariama, don't steal it)! If I could give her 1,000 stars I would! 5 stars is not enough to represent not only her service, but her character and personality. If you haven't already read the reviews below and checked out the 5 stars overall already, then allow me to reiterate and emphasize why she has that rating. Since day one, Mariama has been far from amazing. My fiance spoke with her first on the phone before meeting in person and the first thing I asked was "was she nice? How was her vibe?" She loved her attitude so we proceeded with meeting up with her. She greeted us with a smile and was real from the start. She suggested talking with JVM (who are also just amazing) to get our process going. Can't lie, I slightly delayed the process because I wasn't super pushy on purchasing a home. Even then, MG would check in and respond to our questions without officially being our agent. Her responses were quick and informative and never made us feel like we were asking dumb questions or too many. I would need a few post to really correctly state how amazing MG is. To make a long story short, we had a difficult seller and still closed quicker than I could blink. She was there every step of the way, she pushed and always watched for our best interest. Her service was amazing, but as a person to me is what really amazed me. She has such a big heart, keeps it real, stays positive in tough situations, and always has your back. I can't thank her enough for all she did for my fiance and I. Also, I don't want to forget to mentioned her team. Ceara helped Seriously, no need to look for another agent. Just contact MG now, reading this post you already wasting time talking to her and getting on your way to purchase your dream home. At the end of it all, MG became our lifetime friend, not our agent. Note: Go with the dynamic duel. Mariama and JVM. Trust me, you won't regret it. It's the A-Team.
MG!!! You are incredible to say the least! December 7th I contacted Mariama for an over the phone quick chat! ( we were first time home buyers ) She was super helpful, providing information on what steps we needed to take. I instantly knew she would be amazing! December 16th my fiance and I met Mariama at her office in Richmond, (we had to reschedule which is why it took us a little while to meet with her in person) Mariama guided us on what to expect, answered ALL of our questions, then recommended a Lender (JVM) whom she has worked closely in the past. With the holidays, my fianc_ and I were caught up with all the madness and were unable to contact JVM until after Christmas / New Year. In the meantime Mariama would check in with us in case we had any questions and was very understanding with us waiting a couple of weeks until we contacted JVM. January 10th came along, we started the Pre-approval process with JVM. January 23rd we were pre-approved. (We procrastinated on sending them the documents they asked for) otherwise the pre-approval process would of been much quicker. We contacted Mariama to let her know we were pre-approved, and then the fun part started! Looking for houses! :) (With our first meet with Mariama she knew exactly what we're looking for, but also knew our flexibility with the properties.) Mariama set us up with a portal to be able to view homes as they were listed on the market. We also sent her a whole bunch of open houses that were going to be happening that weekend. We met Mariama at the property open houses, she answered all of our questions, pointed out on what to look out for, and had the disclosures for us that same day! Fast forward, Saturday February 3rd, we came across a property that my fianc_ and I fell in love with! Monday February 5th, Mariama was preparing our very first offer for our dream home! We were pretty nervous at this point, there was a lot of documents that were new to us! Again, Mariama explained every single thing to us and made sure we understood what was going on. Tuesday came, the seller/ agent for this property (same person) was not responding to Mariama... the waiting game started... did I mention they were investors from SoCal? You can only imagine how this how went. Wednesday.. still no response! As a team we decided to move on and keep looking as the seller/ agent seemed not interested... ( they had multiple offers ) That same day about 11am, the seller/agent texted Mariama saying that they received a CASH offer and that they were going to be moving forward with it. (Cash is king right?) ugh...We were crushed! Mariama remained positive and and told us that were were going to come across people like this. We moved on... Saw a few more properties the next weekend......Wednesday February 14th, Valentine's Day....The seller/ agent from our dream home contacts Mariama.... long story short, the cash offer didn't go through.... Mariama wrote another offer the same day!! Our offer was accepted and the next day we were doing inspections on the property. With Mariama & JVM, we were able to close on March 2nd!!! 16 days and we closed!! How unbelievable is that?? We definitely had an A team! Mariama, thank you from the bottom of my heart for making one of our biggest dreams come true!! For being patient and so helpful!! If you're looking for a Real Estate agent, that will guide you every step of the way, answer all of your silly questions, bad ass in what she does, contact Mariama!! You will NOT be disappointed

Mariama is one of those rockstar agents that provides exceptional service to her clients and to those that work with her!
It's not often Realtors take the time to toot another agent's horn but...*beep beep*... she is worth it and totally deserves the praise. I wish there were more agents like her in the industry!

I truly believe any one with any real estate need will be happy they selected Mariama to sell or help them purchase a home...she loves her clients and treats them with kindness and respect. She's a hard negotiator too and she'll fight strongly for anyone she is representing!
San Francisco Homebuyer
WOW! That's our description of Mariama in one word. We first met Mariama two years ago when she was hard at work selling the home across the street from us. We heard additional first hand positive reviews from others about her as well. We called Mariama months before we were ready to sell to consult with her about the process of selling a home and to get her recommendations on what we needed to do to prepare our home for sale. She was very helpful and stayed in touch with us and visited with us again a couple of months before we were ready to put the house on the market to make a few more helpful recommendations. She is always a text, email or phone call away and is quick to reply or even come by. She knows what she is doing, she is thorough, a tough negotiator and above all, a pleasure to work with.

Once our house was listed we had multiple offers that we reviewed on day 7. Counter offers were sent out that night and we accepted a solid offer on day 9 and our closing took only 14 days. Our results exceeded our expectations and may not be typical, but we couldn't have done it without her. We highly recommend her.
Los Angeles Homebuyer
There is a reason Mariama has so many 5 star reviews. She helped me find the exact home I wanted within my budget. She even helped calm my fears, and reservations through a six month escrow process. She expertly represented both myself and the seller - which I am sure was tricky. However, she was able to make sure that we both felt that we were getting what we wanted out of the process and I was able to walk away with a deep sense of gratitude for Mariama as well as the seller. As a single, first time home buyer, I hope everyone has an experience like the one I had with Mariama. This what home buying should be like. I am so, so appreciative of her knowledge, patience and all around professionalism throughout the whole process. I absolutely recommend Mariama! 10/10
Oakland Homebuyer
Mariama has been incredible from start to finish. She was attentive and friendly on our first phone conversation and immediately started showing us places that met exactly what we were looking for. She knows Hercules inside out and was the perfect person to help us learn all of the different neighborhoods and what we could get in the area.

We spent almost three months searching for the right place and Mariama was beyond patient as we spent every weekend looking at new spots. I had worked with other realtors in the past who seemed like they always wanted to be closing and done with the first place you see but not Mariama. She makes you feel like you are her only priority and has all of the time in the world for you.

If she is representing you then she will be a tiger when negotiating on your behalf. She is beyond thorough in getting you the best possible deal and she even came to our title signing to make sure everything was right with the deal.

Every email or call we made she responded immediately. We often had small kiddos with us when we looked at places and she would hold my little boys hand or play with them so we could look around the place without fear of our kiddos falling down the stairs or breaking a mirror.

I cannot say enough great things about Mariama. No matter how big or small your budget she will make you feel looked after, well represented and ensure everything happens perfectly.

Call Mariama. Call her right now!!
Martinez Home Seller
Mariama and Ceara are an amazing team! Throughout the entire process of our home sale they were thoughtful, responsive, accommodating, knowledgeable, hard working, and concise. They not only got the job done but took the time to understand our family and how to achieve a goal that can at times be difficult with 3 young children. If you are looking for a realtor that will work tirelessly to get your house sold and effortlessly to help alleviate the stresses that arise with listing your home, go with Mariama and team! You will not regret it
Mariama was great to work with. She was always responsive and walked us through the whole process. We highly recommend Mariama if you are looking to buy a home.
Mariama is Amazing! Excellent! Outstanding! Knowledgeable and the list can go on and on. Nearly a year ago I contacted her regarding my desire to put my house up for sale in Spring 2017. From the moment we met I felt comfortable and confident with her high level of expertise, knowledge of the real estate market, and confidence she would be able to sell my home shortly after putting it on the market. Not only were my first impressions right but she exceeded them. Selling a home can obviously be stressful but Mariama continued to reassure me not to worry unless she told me there was something to worry about...fortunately nothing negative surfaced during this process. With each inspection, appraisal and even during signing Mariama was present, explained each of the processes and when needed advocated on my behalf. She is a fantastic woman and superb real estate agent. I would definitely recommend her to family and friends..by the way I did, my sister recently purchased her home using Mariama as her agent!

Rodeo Home Buyer
Mariama was wonderful! We were first time home buyers and she walked us through the process and answered all our questions.

Mariama does a great job. When she took on my listing, she made sure everything stayed on track, and that I stayed informed throughout. The house had multiple offers within 3 days on the market. I was purchasing in another state, contingent on the sale of my home in California. Mariama stayed in contact with the buyers agent and when the buyer had delays, she contacted the lender and did what she could to keep things moving. She even contacted my out of state agent regarding the delays. I was purchasing from sellers who were also purchasing contingent on their sale. Throughout, Mariama was calm, confident, and efficient. She is a joy to work with. Everything worked out and there was a smooth transition for everyone involved.
Vallejo Home Buyer and Seller
We are so thankful for Mariama! She helped my husband and I navigate what could have been a very stressful situation. When we decided to sell our home to find a larger house in Vallejo we knew in the current market that things would be competitive and may move quickly. Mariama made sure to go over all of our options and gave us an idea of what to expect. We knew that the easy part would be selling our home, the hard part would be finding a new house in the very small window between closing and our moving date. Mariama went out of her way to accommodate our busy schedules to view homes all over the Vallejo area. When we finally found the house we loved she moved fast to create a competitive offer with a very fast closing. She kept us constantly updated, even sending us emails late into the night and over the weekends. In the end we got a house just in the nick of time and the stress of closing in such a shot amount of time was minimal to what it should have been thanks to Mariama keeping us updated every step of the way and advocating for us during the entire process. I would recommend Mariama to anyone looking to either buy or sell! She makes you feel like you are always the priority, and she will fight for you till the very end to get you the home you want!
Crows Nest Home Buyer
Mariama is a wonderful realtor. She help me by my first home and I would definitely recommend her to anyone. She always responds to my calls or voice mail. I was very grateful to have her as my realtor.
