As a good neighbor in this tight community, I am here to advise and assist you with every aspect of living in Marin, from schools, to hiking routes, boating, clubs, entertainment, restaurants… you name it. I tailor your unique needs to selling or buying your property.
We prioritize our role as a trusted advisor over salesmanship: We counsel clients about things they need to look out for.
After all, our reputation is on the line. Our brand’s value is correlated to how well you are served.
In selling or buying a home, experience matters a lot in putting all the pieces of the puzzle together, especially when problems are inconspicuous.
For most people, real estate property is the most valuable asset; the stakes are too high for discount agents without much experience.
Discount brokerages claim to “save” you half a point on commission, but “you get what you paid for.” The amount you may have lost can far exceed what you “saved”.
Salary-based, inexperienced agents are not able to navigate the complexities in each unique situation. With experienced brokers like us, you get better value for your property that can be WAY more than half a percent of “savings” of commissions.
We measure every transaction with this criteria: Is the client’s best interest served, in the best way possible?
Every individual, every family has different needs and lifestyle preferences for where and how they live.
To you, it is a home – one of the most important components of life. We listen, with hearts and minds, to your needs and goals. We always keep this in mind for each real estate sale or purchase.
Then we put together all the considerations, numbers and the rest of the puzzle pieces, to support your home ownership goals.
We customize our service to your needs and wants, with full attention to all details.
Helping people and changing people’s lives is my greatest fulfillment and motivation.
I am Jeff Marples. I am the managing broker and partner at Marker Luxury Properties (“MarkerLux”), a boutique luxury brokerage firm. For over two decades I have been blessed with the joy of advising and facilitating home buyers and sellers. The more I do it, the more I am motivated to keep improving this art and science of communication and helping people. Just like skiing, car racing, golfing, raising kids (three teenagers, as of now) … there is always room for learning and growth.
My clients appreciate my work ethics and determination. No matter what obstacles are in the way, I proactively tackle issues, from preparing properties for sale through negotiations, to closing.
I first strive to understand your unique situations, whether you are buying or selling. Through asking questions and attentively listening, I support and guide you in finding the best fit.
Nothing beats the adrenaline rush while negotiating the best prices, and the excitement in delivering good news to my clients in countless transactions. I take great pride in delivering results and improving people’s lives. I raise the bar for my team as the Broker of Record, — overseeing, managing, and mentoring junior realtors in MarkerLux.
Connecting with people and helping them in a personable, authentic, and caring manner is the way I help others.
We go above and beyond to help clients with home improvements, by introducing our network of contractors, plumbers, electricians, interior designers, flooring specialists, landscapers,…
We share with our clients our vast knowledge about living in Marin, based on different lifestyles for families with young children, couples, and retired folks.
To save our clients any “dramas” or worries in order to ensure smooth transactions, we anticipate challenges to tackle them head on.
“Jeff is such a top notch agent that made the stressful real estate purchase process painless and seamless for me, every step of the way. He’s always super responsive and on top of everything! He also knows the market and the neighborhood so well and is patient and transparent. The level of professionalism and also real estate expertise is bar none. I couldn’t imagine doing this with another agent.”
“Jeff was extremely helpful. Jeff was very friendly and he gave us a lot of good advice. He never pushed any property on us and gave us the pros and cons of all the properties we saw. We were very comfortable with him.”
“They understand you very well. They are aligned with what the customer needs and they are very responsive. They’re knowledgeable and smart. They understand exactly what you need. Basically, you talk with the guy for half an hour or one hour, and he already knows exactly what you need and he comes back to you with exactly what you want.”
“He guided us through the pre-listing process, setting up repairs, painting, staging, and more. He also helped us with counter-offers and minor hiccups that came up during escrow, and was someone we could depend on overall.”
