    Samantha gave Marsha 5 stars out of 5
    Marsha Babe came well recommended by my neighbors and the community I lived in Bluewater Bay Resort. She was personable, professional, knowledgeable, and above all knew the market and got enough of traffic and sold my home in a timely manner. Always a positive attitude and available to me. I would highly recommend her and her team to anyone looking to sell their home.

    Marsha gave top rate service from the market analysis to the day of closing. She was always available and very transparent about all factors affecting the sale of my home. She is extremely knowledgeable about the market, home building and the entire process. She is extremely thorough and I would recommend her without hesitation!

    Christopher gave Marsha 5 stars out of 5
    Marsha has great knowledge of the area and used her experience and expertise to find us the perfect home! Our list of must-haves was extensive, but she was able to find us somewhere we can be happy in our new city. It wasn't easy as we were buying a house while overseas in a city that we had never visited before; Marsha took the time to learn what was most important to us and work through all of our priorities with the seller. We were referred to Marsha by a close friend who had recently engaged her services and I can certainly understand why he introduced us to her! If you are looking for someone with local knowledge and contacts who will make your priorities their priority, then call Marsha!

    The Masha Babe Team was more than helpful, they have vast knowledge of the local towns and what to look for. She never stopped looking till we found my perfect home. Each member of her team has a lot to offer any buyer/seller that only comes from experience from working in the area AND living in this area. She works around your schedule and will bend over backwards to make sure her clients are happy.

    Paul gave Marsha 5 stars out of 5
    Marsha and her associates were an awesome team and we couldn't have gotten our dream home without them! My husband & I bought it online sight unseen and Marsha gave us an excellent video tour, street and all. Marsha helped us with all the red tape, sometimes talking daily with her until we made it to Florida. She has kept in contact over the years and proven to be a friend as well as a great realtor. We decided to move further South and she sold our home in ONE day after 3 showings and gave great professional advice through the whole process. We told our neighbor to use her when his house sat on the market for months and he called her and she sold it within a few weeks, he had nothing but praises for her and her team! Marsha is a professional with a genuine friendly attitude that makes you feel at ease, her photographer and assistant were very friendly and they all worked well together. If you want to buy or sell, I highly recommend you call Marsha Babe, she knows her stuff and is not pushy and gets the job done!

    Charlie gave Marsha 5 stars out of 5
    I've worked with many realtors in my time, some good and some bad. I can honestly say that Marsha was very personable and easy to work with. From the moment she came to our house We knew she would be our choice. I had my house on the market for 60 days with another Agency and was going no where. We contacted ERA to see if they could help us. After a short meeting we accepted Marsha to be our Realtor. With a few minor adjustments to our house, Marsha was able to sell our house in ONE DAY! She was the greatest. She still stays in touch to see if we're doing OK.

    Heidi gave Marsha 5 stars out of 5
    Marsha Babe has been my realtor for over ten years now. She has helped me to purchase two houses and two condos. I could not be happier with her service. She went the extra mile to help my wife choose colors, flooring, cabinets, etc. for our new home. If she did not know the answer to my questions, she would always find the answers. She helped me wade through a 1031 exchange which was greatly appreciated. I highly recommend her for your next real estate purchase.

    Doug gave Marsha 5 stars out of 5
    We had to sell my elderly mother's home due to the need for her to move to an assisted living facility. We chose Marsha through a recommendation from our realtor in our hometown. Marsha was outstanding as this was an emotionally difficult time for us and we live out of state. We are not familiar with Florida laws and rules on real estate transactions but Marsha took the time to inform us and gave explanations why these rules must be followed in Florida. Marsha provided names of contractors and skilled tradesmen to make the updates we needed. Marsha knows the market well and is an excellent negotiator. She is professional and to the point '” she does not waste your time but is extremely willing to assist and give advice when asked '” she is direct and we appreciated that. We felt Marsha went above and beyond on several occasions for us which was a blessing and saved us extra trips to Florida. Marsha even supervised the contractors we hired on more than one occasion when we were not in Florida. Amazing! The entire process was as simple as possible due to her expertise. If we buy in the Niceville/Destin area in the future, we will definitely use Marsha. She told us that she treats her clients like family and we found this to be true! She is one of a kind and we highly recommend her!

    Marsha has been working in our best interest since 2009 when we lived out of state and she helped us sale our rental property. Since then, we have had five additional real estate transactions with Marsha. There's a reason you go back to the same professional. Thank you, Marsha, for all you do!

    We are repeat clients of Marsha Babe and have worked with her on five separate real estate transactions over several years. She is excellent and has a tremendous amount of knowledge which she uses to benefit her clients. I would not hesitate to recommend Marsha to my family, friends and clients.

    So glad I took the advice of a good friend that recommended Marsha to me. Nice to put full faith and trust in someone, take their advice, and have things work out like they should. Lots of glitches along the way not of our making but Marsha and her team had our backs. We got a very good price for the house she sold for us in a short period of time and with her help securing our new home we are set now through our retirement years.

    JAMES gave Marsha 5 stars out of 5
    This was our fifth real estate transaction and Marsha was by far the best Realtor we've worked with! Marsha took the time to understand what we were looking for and when a 'contender' was listed, she planned to scope it out before we even had to ask. We're military buyers from out-of-state, so trying to make a purchase in this red-hot market was intimidating. But thanks to Marsha's extremely proactive nature and her great knowledge of the local area she found the perfect house for us in the perfect neighborhood. She took full ownership of each step of the process, making sure that everything was done on time and to our satisfaction. Marsha went above and beyond. It was a pleasure working with her and we couldn't recommend her more highly!

    Marsha was amazing! I have often described her as a shark with how she really just goes for it! She puts in so much time and energy into her job, it's truly awesome. She sold our house for more than we imagined and in such a small amount of time!

    MICHEAL gave Marsha 5 stars out of 5
    Marsha truly exemplifies the meaning of a real estate agent. After our initial contact Marsha lined up homes for viewing that had the benefits we were looking for: extra living area, large master bedroom with sitting area, nice layout for a kitchen with granite counters, and a piece of property with high speed internet availability. Marsha was there for us during our long distance transaction. She coordinated various aspects of contractor work for us and keep us informed on what the builder agreeded upon from her negotiating meetings. We coiuld contact Marsha by various forms of communication and she always returned informaiton back to us in an expediant and responsive manner. I know if there is any opportunity for another home purchase in the greater Crestview area I will definitely retain Marsha for the task. Her dedication, trustworthiness, and professionalism is above other agents we have utilized in the past. Our experience with Marsha made the entire process more confortable and rewarding. Thank you Marsha.

    Marsha provided exceptional and thorough professional real estate services during the selling of my home. She and her team assured all details were covered and all questions were answered. Although I'm currently residing in another state, Marsha stayed in constant contact with me. Whether buying, selling, or considering other real estate options Marsha Babe should be the first person you contact. Thank you again.

    Robbie gave Marsha 5 stars out of 5
    I have enjoyed working with Marsha for almost 10 years now. We have worked together with a diverse clientele from Military families, Investors, locals, and many choosing to make the Gulf Coast their place of retirement. Marsha has represented and helped clients purchase properties from "Fixer Uppers" to Water Front dream homes, and it has been a privilege and honor to help be part of the team. Whatever property someone chooses, she has helped make that dream come true by working hard to make a property become a place called "Home". As an Inspector, I get to work with all types of people and agents, and I must say, I have enjoyed working with Team Marsha Babe from the bottom of my heart. She will work very hard to find the right fit for the needs you have, and will go the extra mile from beginning to end, and I have found the end to be a lifelong friendship. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy, sell, or invest in any type property, because she has educated herself and has given herself time and time again to become one of the premier and leading real estate agents in the panhandle of Florida...and I must say, she has succeeded and I am blessed for having a colleague and friend in Marsha Babe!!

    Marsha is always a pleasure to work with. She is very involved with her clients needs, buying or selling. Her transactions always go smooth, even with the most difficult scenarios to overcome. Any buyer or seller is in great hands with Marsha. The local lenders in our area and title companies enjoy working with Marsha. She keeps her purchases and sales in order, all parties updated and happy closings!

    Hunter & Kendra gave Marsha 5 stars out of 5
    Marsha was extremely helpful for my husband and I being first time homebuyers. She answered all of our questions promptly with accurate responses. She also helped guide us through the process in the most stressful of times. She kept an accurate timeline for all of our deadlines and made sure we were aware when a deadline was coming up. I have no absolutely zero complaints from the realty services provided by Marsha and the ERA American Realty team. 10/10 would recommend for future buyers.

She is responsive and always goes the extra mile to ensure you have exactly what you need to make the right offer and close the deal. I would hire her again in a second. You will find no better Realtor!!!

    I can't say enough great things about Marsha and the job she did helping me find a home. In the end, it was her attention to what I was ultimately looking for in a house that steered us in the right direction. Over the length of our hunt together, she took the time to listen to my situation, understand my family, and really immerse herself into my life in order to find something that was truly perfect. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her services to any of my friends or family members. I am blessed to have found her as a real estate agent, and even more blessed to think that we have become friends in the process of finding my gem. Thank you is not enough!

    I WHOLEHEARTEDLY recommend Marsha to anyone who is planning on purchasing real estate now or in the future. I was apprehensive about buying my first house,but from the moment I met Marsha ,I trusted her. I could talk with her about my concerns about my home and she would make a phone call,visit the property, talk with builders or representatives and call me back with follow up information on the same day! She listened to me when I wanted to just vent about the process of home buying and she was always forthright and forthcoming with any and all information about the home. She often called to update me on the progress of the home or question whether I received a weekly update from the builders. Saying, "Thank You" really doesn't seem to be enough for all she has done so far.

    Marsha is definitely the real estate agent for my needs. She's open to my ideas in addition to adding her own opinion to come to a conclusion. I really admire her knowledge of real estate and rely on her for helping me making decisions regarding buying a new home. I would highly recommend Marsha to anybody looking to buy or sell property in this area. She's especially knowledgeable with military moves. Thank you Marsha for all you did to help me find my house.

    Marsha is a professional real estate agent. She has been working with me for over 2 1/2 years on real estate deals. I really look up to her because of her professionalism and her knowledge of the real estate business. She won't let you down she will stay with you for the duration of your need. She always gets back with you within a reasonable time and has great ideas. Highly recommend Marsha for any type of real estate business. She'll get the job done right every time. I don't ever see her quitting or giving up on any situation that she encounters. Probably one of the best real estate professionals I've ever worked with in 30 years.

    I appreciate the time and energy that Marsha and Monica devoted to my purchase. As a first time home buyer I had many questions that they addressed in a very timely manner. I used a home inspector that they were not familiar with yet they were able to decipher his concerns and get all the issues addressed. Even after the completion of the purchase I had questions and they addressed them promptly and efficiently. I totally trust them to follow through and they were both very professional. I would highly reccommend them to any of my family or friends. Great attitudes! Great job ladies!

    As a former military family, my wife and I have bought homes all over the United States. Marsha is the best realtor whom we've had the pleasure of working with. She is customer focused, pleasant, professional, proactive, assertive, and committed to getting the job done for the customer as quickly and efficiently as possible. This new home is intended to be our last home but if we ever decide to move again, we will seek out Marsha. We will also recommend her to our friends and family. This has been a truly outstanding experience! Despite the huge increase in documentation over the last 15 years since we last bought a home, this time with Marsha and her team was top notch - the most efficient and best home-buying experience we've had in our life time. Thank you Marsha, your team, and ERA!

    We loved working with Marsha and her team. We reached out a few months are we moved to Florida back in 2014 and even though we were not ready to buy she still stayed in contact with us and answered any questions we had. We finally had the pleasure of working with her and her team this year 2016 to buy our first house and with all the up's and down's that go into looking and finally finding the right house she went above and beyond. Marsha was very quick at getting back with you even when she was off the clock not all real-estate agents would do that. She and her team are very warm and inviting and when you leave from meeting them you will feel as if you are old friends. They were very knowledgeable and willing to go above what most would do. I know if you pick Marsha Babe and her team to help you find that dream house you will not be disappointed. If I had to do the whole process over I would not do anything different.

    Walter & Terry gave Marsha 5 stars out of 5
    Marsha is just wonderful! She is incredibly responsive, tenacious, and thorough. I called Marsha as the listing agent for a house I was interested in. Marsha told me she would set up an appointment so that my wife and I could see the house. In the meantime, someone else had made an offer on that house. Marsha went to work and found several other homes with the same floorplan in the same development and made appointments to show them to me. She was very knowledgeable of the area and gave us great tips on the locations and benefits of living in that community. After looking at several homes, my wife and I needed time to think it all over. Marsha was very patience and helpful, and we felt she really cared about us getting the right home rather than making her sale. When we finally decided on a home, I needed to see the house one more time to be absolutely certain that it was the house we wanted. Although Marsha was out of town, her team arranged another visit and further answered all my questions. When we decided to make an offer, Marsha helped us to determine a fair market price and then helped with the negotiations. We were very happy with the final deal. Marsha and her team then assisted me in the entire home buying process and never made us feel pressured to make a decision. Marsha and her team were very professional in every direction yet very personable. We felt we were meeting with friends whenever we had meetings. Once we get moved into our new house, we definitely will use Marsha and her team to sell our old house. Thanks Marsha!

    Marsha and her team are wonderful! I was relocating from out of state and desperately needed a home as soon as possible. It is difficult house hunting from 1500 miles away, but Marsha and Monica went out of their way to walk through homes, taking additional pictures and video, and providing feedback on the homes and the neighborhoods. It was awesome! We eventually found a home when I had only three weeks left in my vacation condo and they worked diligently with the mortgage company and all other parties to get me closed in time. I cannot stress how much they care about their clients and the effort they put into helping you find a place to call home. I will be forever grateful for the prompt replies to my endless questions. On a side note, Monica (part of Marsha's team) even went to the house on a holiday weekend to get me measurements for a refrigerator so I could take advantage of the post Christmas sales. Exceptional service!

    Bridging the Appraisal Gap

     How to Bridge the Appraisal Gap in Today's Real Estate Market If you're searching for drama, don't limit yourself to Netflix. Instead, tune in to the real estate market, where the competition among buyers has never been fiercer. And with homes selling for record highs,1 the appraisal process—historically a standard part of a home purchase—is receiving more attention than ever.  That's because some sellers are finding out the hard way that a strong offer can fizzle quickly when an...
