We wanted to draw your attention to the extraordinary customer service and skill of Marla Trussell.

Marla successfully sold our home at 1485 Glencrest Drive in San Elijo Hills

Not only did Marla show excellence in her professionalism whilst dealing with us, she also showed poise in dealing with our relocation company, Cartus, who were difficult to work with to say the least.
Marla is the only Realtor I have ever worked with that I trust completely in terms of putting her clients wishes above all else. Her integrity and commitment to those she represents shines through and she consistently communicates all and every detail needed for a successful outcome.
We first met Marla in 2005 when looking to buy a home in San Elijo Hills. She has represented us as buyers and sellers and has steered us through a short sale successfully and smoothly also. We would always take the time to recommend Marla to would be clients with confidence and enthusiasm. She is an asset to any buyer/seller as well as to Coldwell Banker.
Best Regards,
Karen and Don Nwose 

Marla sold our old home and helped us find a new one.  Very few homes sell in our neighborhood but Marla had a pricing model that got us top dollar within a week.  She guided us through every step of the process, anticipating the next step.  She was always prepared. 

She also worked diligently to find us the right home.  We are very happy in our choice to use Marla's services and will recommend her and use her again.

We wanted to take this opportunity to convey to you what an exceptional experience we had working with Marla Trussell on our recent purchase of a condo in Carlsbad. We are not from the San Diego area and Marla went out of her way to bridge the location gap between us. She was exceptionally organized when we came to look at properties allowing us to accomplish our purchase goal within the first visit. Throughout the purchase and escrow transaction, she continually guided and coached us through the various stages. Further, there were several occasions where she offered to go to the condo on our behalf. She was there to facilitate the inspections, the final walk through and met up with our new tenant to go through the keys, write up a key receipt and send us a set.

These are a few of the examples of how Marla deployed excellent service to us. We felt very fortunate to have had such a competent, dependable person representing us during this transaction. Given the distance, it could have been difficult, but Marla worked very hard to make it appear seamless.

Being a good real estate agent takes more than making a sale. It means understanding your client and operating with integrity on their behalf as if the transaction was for yourself. Marla always gave us that sense, giving us confidence in the advice and direction she provided. As a result, should we have any additional real estate needs in the San Diego area we will not hesitate to work wiht her again.

I wanted to take the time to write you and let you know the exceptional service I received by one of your agents - Marla Trussell


Marla helped my wife and I purchase our first home in Skyloft which closed in February.


Marla was extremely professional, responsive, knowledgeable and diligent. I always felt that she had our best interest at heart and gave sound and honest advise.


Marla even showed us the property on New Years Day as we were eager to put in an offer before people returned from Holiday.


I am going to refer Marla to anyone I know who might be looking to purchase or sale a home in the future. I can honestly say that she gave us first class service and representation.

Marla Trussell was our realtor as we marketed and sold our home. We were impressed with her during our first conversation and initial meeting, and it was very easy to select her to list our home. She was an excellent communicator, listened to our concerns and questions and was extremely professional in our interactions. She understood our local market quite well and we had no difficulty agreeing on various actions to help get our home sold. She kept us well informed concerning activity on the home, especially after we moved out of state. She was especially helpful after received the offer and had to do many extra things related to the home inspection to get us closed. We felt comfortable with her throughout the process and would definitely recommend her to others seeking realtor services.


Tom and Linda Haycock 

Thank you for helping us sell our home.  We are amazed at how quickly you responded to all our inquiries.  You managed everything with the utmost professionalism and always kept a happy demeanor.  You understood that we needed to sell our home in a very short time, 5 weeks. You worked quickly and diligently and we were in escrow in less than a week and on schedule to close on our new home in Indiana.

Naomi Golovin, San Marcos, CA


I was selling an investment property for the first time. I knew that the transaction had very specific deadlines and if not met, would cost me thousands in taxes. Marla demonstrated an excellent understanding of 1031 exchanges and made sure that we identified the replacement properties correctly and timely. She helped me to understand how I could maximize my purchasing power in the exchange. Marla is a seasoned real estate professional. I trust her judgement and would recommend her to others seeking to buy or sell investment properties.
