Testimonials for Tina Maraj
Tina Maraj and Randy Tovar, the dynamic duo, are very knowledgeable about the buying process and the Fullerton real estate market. They helped us with two offers on two homes in Fullerton. While the second home is the one we eventually purchased, what sets these two apart was how well they handled the offer on the first home and subsequent the escrow. They protected our interest as buyers when the first home’s escrow began to have problems, including spending hours pulling permits to research the property history, and making sure our multi-offer counter was solid while protecting our deposit. When the deal on the first home turned sideways due to non-disclosure on the seller’s part, Tina and Randy helped us get out of the escrow and our get our full deposit returned.
Tina and Randy got us through that nightmare so seamlessly. It was during this process we realized just how important a quality/experienced realtor is. Fortunately the second home, which is now ours, was a pleasant process, made even easier with their expertise and organization. Tina and Randy are the only realtors we will use in the future.
We were thinking of selling our home over one year ago and met with multiple realtors. When we met Tina, we knew that she was our match. Tina is professional and personable. We wish we would have met with Tina much sooner than we actually did. We were apprehensive to sell our first home, as the housing market had been unpredictable. However, selling our home with Tina couldn't have been easier. She listened to our needs and gave us honest and straight forward answers. Our home sold in three days after being listed because Tina knew exactly what to do. Additionally, escrow closed early, thanks to all of her wonderful staffing support. Tina's efficiency and constant efforts are commendable. It was clear that Tina was there to represent us, and not just another agent that makes recommendations for their own interests . We highly recommend Tina, as she is a great person and amazing real estate agent.

Tina Maraj has exceeded my expectations as my realtor! I had been thinking about downsizing to a smaller place for some time. I called Tina to talk about my needs. The first thing that impressed me was that she listened to me and did not pressure me to sell my place until I was ready. The second thing that impressed me was her track record as a real estate agent in Fullerton and specifically Hidden Lakes. She knew this condo complex very well and had sold more properties here than any other realtor. I felt confident putting my home into her hands. The third thing that impressed me (as I put my house up for sale with her & bought a smaller place with her help), was that she always had my best interest in mind. As she got to know me, she knew what I was looking for in a new place to live. Tina is professional, super organized & really cares. She kept me informed through the whole buying & selling process and I really needed that. This whole moving experience has been a positive one because Tina has been in my corner the whole time. I am thankful for all her hard work, attention to detail and continual honesty. She is the best!
Tina Maraj is an amazing real estate agent. I live in Maryland and needed to sell our home in Orange County. From such a great distance, the seller is at a real disadvantage, not being able to do even a simple task such as walking through the home for a post-tenant-move-out inspection. I told Tina from the start that I was going to have to trust her to take care of every aspect of the sale, and furthermore I was going to rely on her judgment for important decisions such as what price the market will bare.
Tina did not disappoint, she came through like a champ. Her local market analysis and gentle nudging towards more realistic pricing maximized our returns while minimizing our time-on-market. When it came to getting the inspections and making repairs, she knew all the right people to talk to. And with her established relationships, she was able to keep things moving at a fast pace while holding our costs down to a minimum. She also came to the rescue, much like a lioness protecting her cubs, when a rogue contractor tried to pull a switch and bate on a repair fee.
As happy as I am that we sold our home quickly and for a good price, I am saddened that the daily check-ins and strategy chats now must come to an end. I don't think we could have asked for a more effective, more cheerful, more positive, more honest agent than Tina Maraj.
When my husband and I decided to grow our family and get a new home we were apprehensive about the daunting task. Tina & Randy reassured us that they had many years of experience doing just that. As the process was underway it showed. Tina was always available to answer our questions, she shared houses that met our specifications on a daily basis, and was just on top of everything. What really impressed me though was that she would talk us out of homes that weren't good for us even though her commission would've been pretty high. They really cares about their clients and considers their future happiness. I really felt like I could trust Tina and that she genuinely cares about me as more than just a commission.
This letter is to provide a recommendation to use Tina Maraj for realty services. We knew Tina from her marketing in Fullerton. We initially used Tina to rent out our home and then a year later, to sell our home. She sold our home quickly and for the price we were looking for. Because of Tina’s marketing skills and knowledge of our community in particular, I would use Tina again for realty services when we decide to purchase a new home. I have full confidence in her that she would keep my best interests in mind when finding a home that meets my needs.

Just a short note of appreciation of all the hard work you did in the sale of our home at 2551 Holly Street in Fullerton.
From the very first meeting, you developed an excellent marketing plan to set a reasonable price, targeted potential buyers and displayed it in a variety of web sites with pictures that showed the highlights of the home. Throughout the process, you kept us informed of the interest of various parties and worked with our schedule to show the home to as many potential buys as possible while protecting our privacy.
We were especially impressed with your integrity and professionalism in keeping us informed of the issues that arose and your sound recommendations of options to help sell the home for the best value. In a few incidents, potential buyers made unreasonable offers in which you clearly and effectively countered, separating those who were serious buyers of interest as opposed to those who were not serious.
We are always amazed at the amount of paper work that is involved in selling a home. You were there at every step to ensure that each required document was explained to us and deadlines met.
Even though the final buyer presented some difficulties and last minute demands which I felt were unreasonable, you demonstrated your integrity by keeping your word and abiding by the rules of the process. For this you are to be commended.
We highly recommend you to any potential seller of a home.
Again, thank you for your outstanding work.

"Tina did a great job representing my wife and I in the search and purchase of our house in Fullerton. She has incredible knowledge of the local housing markets. She was very patient and supportive of the time it took for us to become familiar with the area, creating a pressure free experience. She also represented us very effectively in our dealings with the seller during the sale. When our lender bank failed to perform timely, Tina took charge and got them immediately back on track. We couldn't have done it without her and will definitely use her again if the opportunity arises.

Tina was always working for me. She showed clients my Anaheim Hills home at all hours of the day, night and weekends. Whenever I needed something completed from her she did it on time. I would definitely use Tina again for buying, selling or property management. I am happy to refer her to my friends and family.
