To put it simply - Marina is an outstanding agent. My partner and I were lucky enough to have Marina and her team in our corner for a…recent home purchase, and were very impressed with her communication, understanding and support throughout the entire process. Through the bidding even after closing, she has been extremely friendly, professional, and willing to go the extra mile - making an otherwise daunting task, that much easier . I would thoroughly recommend her.

Without Marina purchasing our new home in Mar Vista wouldn’t have been possible! We bought this property while on the other side of the country, during a pandemic…and Marina was crucial in helping us navigate the process while remote, from offer to close. Aside from being a positive delight, she was communicative, trustworthy and clear. In the negotiation phase she proved great counsel, we always felt we could trust her and that she had our best interests at heart. She even went above and beyond post-sale, organizing maintenance for us before we arrived. Would absolutely recommend Marina.

We met Marina accidentally through a Zillow listing. We hadn’t intended to engage a Buyer’s agent since we were paying close attention to new listings. Over several months,…she stayed in touch with a light hand - sending properties that she thought we might be interested in. When a property finally came to market that we wanted, what do you know- Seller’s agent required that we work through an agent. (Kudos to them) We called Marina that day and she visited the property that afternoon. Long story short- we were one of 30 offers (she compared the open house to the Hunger Games), and with Marina’s guidance, we got the property. And that was the easy part. There was no way that we would have worked through inspections and subsequent negotiations without her. Highly recommended.

Marina helped us buy a condo in Santa Monica and she was a true pleasure to work with. Her depth of knowledge and great communication made what…could be a daunting process accessible and clear. She was exceptionally responsive and communicative and she helped us have a clear understanding of each step of the process. She went beyond our expectations in negotiating and we always felt she had our interests at the forefront. We were very impressed with Marina and would recommend her highly to anyone.

Marina has gone above and beyond numerous times in helping us find a home suitable for our needs in Venice and accommodating our search. We won’t settle on…anything less than perfect and can truly tell that she won’t either. After helping us get into a perfect lease, we now have more time and flexibility in our search to buy a property than we could have imagined. I feel extremely lucky to have such a motivated and productive agent working with us.

Marina made our home buying process a breeze. Super fast communication helped us jump on a property that we knew would move quickly. Once our offer was accepted,…Marina got all of our inspections lined up with a true sense of urgency and even helped us with homeowners insurance which was unexpectedly difficult in a fire-risk area. We would gladly use her services again in the future.

Marina got it done! We found a great house but so did others. So, multiple offers went in and the process required quick responsiveness and strategic thinking.… Marina was all that and more and she worked hard to “sell” our offer. Earlier today we closed!

From the beginning, Marina did a great job locating properties that fit my criteria. The key was she asked the right questions and listened well. As a result,…we didn't waste time looking at properties that wouldn't work for me and we were in contract within 30 days.
Marina really knows the pros and cons of different areas and that helped immensely in my search. She is very responsive and works hard for her clients. She provided productive advice in negotiating the purchase and the closing was seamless.
I have bought many properties and worked with agents across the country. I can honestly say that Marina was very impressive, highly skilled, a huge value add and one of the best yet. I plan to use her for all of my real estate needs in the LA area. Thank you Marina for your hard work!!!

Marina was an amazing agent to work with. We worked with her on the purchase of a second residence and she was always prompt, available and extremely helpful.…She took care of a lot of leg work and helped us negotiate a part of the city we were less familiar with. In the end, with her help, we ended up getting a wonderful place at a lower price than we thought we would have been able to in the area. We would definitely recommend her again and would be happy to work with her in the future. Thanks Marina!

Marina is an excellent buyer's agent, especially when you have no idea what you are doing when you are a first time buyer! She walked me through…everything and was very patient with all the questions that I had. In the end, I sent her a listing I had seen and the subject line was "dream house". Even though it was a bit out of my price range, she convinced me to go take a look anyway as you never know. The seller's accepted my offer and I just moved in yesterday!

Marina was very helpful and especially available and reactive, whatever the time and day. She also have been patient and understanding as we were not familiar with the…US purchase process and gave us good addresses for repairs needed in the condo.
Thank you Marina for your patience ! We highly recommend her for your next purchases !

My husband and I were looking for the perfect family home on the westside and are so grateful that we had Marina to help us find it. We…were very particular about what we wanted, and it ended up taking over a year to obtain our dream place. While many realtors may have become frustrated with the long search, Marina was a steadfast and patient cheerleader. In a very competitive and often frustrating market, Marina always remained positive, creative and full of thoughtful wisdom. She was quick to send us listings, respond to our phone calls, and adapt to changing circumstances.

When it came to making offers and navigating the escrow process, Marina was remarkable. She worked hard to provide us with as much information on the property as possible and fought for us when we needed a strong negotiator. She was also excellent at mitigating our expectations whilst simultaneously never pressuring us into anything in which we felt uncomfortable. We closed with confidence.

In addition to being smart and savvy, Marina was polite and honest. My husband and I felt well represented by her on a personal level. It was such a relief to feel confident that our realtor was appropriately representing our character, as well as our interests, to others.

Marina Shaw was exceptional. I would not hesitate to use her again in the future and recommend her with the highest confidence.

We are moving to LA from London and found Marina online. Since the first time we met with her she has been super helpful and made the whole…buying process easy. She has also helped a lot after the purchase. Would definitely recommend using her.

We moved from New York to Los Angeles, and over the course of six months Marina helped us find the perfect home in Venice Beach, California. She stayed…in touch with us remotely, diligently sending us potential properties, and arranging visits whenever we were in town. She was warm, courteous and a delight to work with - we couldn't recommend her more !

Marina is professional, thoughtful, strategic, quick to respond and an absolute joy to work with.

I was a first time home buyer with no less than…
a million questions. The most important thing is to find someone who you trust implicitly and know are always working with your best interest in mind - that is Marina.

She talked me through every step of the process, answered all of my questions and made me feel confident throughout our time working together.

She listened to what I wanted in a home and delivered options that met my needs and were a valuable use of my time.

Her thoroughness and attention made me feel like I was her only client - which I certainly knew I was not!

In the end, she found my dream home and fought for me to get a deal I was extremely happy with.

When it comes time to sell and purchase my next home, Marina will be my first call.

Thank you, Marina!

Marina Shaw was simply spectacular in facilitating the purchase of my home in the Hollywood Hills. Professional, polished, responsive, knowledgeable, and above all hard nosed in terms of…negotiating. I could not be more happy with having her as my agent.

I was very happy with the great support provided by Marina Shaw and Pardee Properties in my recent search for a condo in Santa Monica. Even before I…arrived in Santa Monica, Marina was very professional and efficient at answering my queries, which is why I chose her from among a number of agents to help me in my search. As I am British and unfamiliar with the US system, I needed quite a bit of guidance during the process and Marina was always very patient and clear with her explanations. She responded on time to questions and handled the negotiations during a somewhat difficult sale process very competently. All in all, Marina was a delight to deal with and the Pardee Properties office provided excellent back up as I needed some office assistance during the sale. Based on my experience, I can recommend Marina Shaw and Pardee Properties without any hesitation.
