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 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.
