Marquita "MJ " Jeffress

Marquita Jeffress is an adept professional in the real estate and general investment space with over 10+ years of experience in commercial lending, business and real estate loans. Her roots in banking have helped her acquire excellent negotiation and communication skills – both of which are crucial for a realtor. Born and raised in the Bay Area, what she appreciates most is the beautiful melting pot of culturally diversified people, the array of homes styles and unique differences that every city has to offer. As a member of the Keller Williams family, she embodies hard work and integrity at all levels.

Marquita is just as fun in her personal life – you’ll most likely find her surrounded by family and friends at an outdoor festival or dinner table. She’s also pretty easygoing, so working with her won’t be difficult. Outside of real estate, she believes in giving back to the community.

If i could give 10 stars, I would. My husband and I were considering purchasing a second home in the Bay Area. We were referred to Marquita through a family friend.
She was very proactive and her communication was top notch!
Since our travel dates to visit the Bay were a little far out, she met with us via Zoom and made us feel extremely comfortable!
We are very confident in her competence as a Realtor.
Although we are still looking for the perfect property, both of us highly recommend Marquita as a local real estate agent. You won't regret working with her! Even more so, you won't regret her working for you!!

I was referred to Marquita by a coworker/friend to possibly sell my home. Initially my husband and I were on the fence about selling, however Marquita helped us to make the decision that best fit our family needs. Although we don't plan to sell now, having her help us weigh out the pros and cons will allow us to continue building our equity. We will 100% work with Marquita once the timing is right, we highly recommend her as a knowledgeable and competent real estate agent.

Due to Marquita's diligence my 22 year old son was able to purchase a condo at a lower rate. This was his first large purchase. Marquita was very helpful by holding his hand through out the whole process. We had some hiccups along the way but Marquita remained faithful to her Client from the beginning to the end. Thank you Marquita for making my son's first major purchase as easy as possible. *If he can purchase, so can you!

I used to work with Marquita doing real estate investor loans so when she told me she got into residential Real Estate I automatically started referring my clients to her in that space. In fact I ended up referring one of my business banking clients over to her and got such positive feedback. My client said that Marquita was very responsive and always available. She was able to provide him with several off-market properties.
Given her finance background, coupled with her Real Estate knowledge, I am confident there is no client that she won’t impress and be able to help.
Any person that works with Marquita is in great hands and I will continue to refer her to my clients going forward.

Marquita is a top real estate agent: smart, savvy and a fierce advocate for her clients' interests. She has numerous contacts in the local real estate markets so she can find property gems even before they are listed to give her clients the edge needed to get the best deals. Not only that but Marquita is a pleasure to know, flashing a big smile with an even bigger heart. We heartily recommend Marquita to anyone seeking to buy or sell property in her territory.

We had been looking for our dream house in Discovery bay. We had decided to finally get serious and make the move from San Jose to Discovery bay. We had talked with a few realtors and even had one that was looking but seemed to be too busy for us or the price was over budget and not on the water. Once we told Marquita Jeffess what we wanted, MJ was sending us houses that met our needs, we set up a walk through within a week. We knew once we walked in this was our home. We have been looking for 7 years for our home in Discovery bay. MJ made sure that she fought for what we wanted in the home. She negotiated for the price that we wanted no hassling us on taking the seller's price. The seller came back with a counter offer and MJ went to battle for us. Through some crafty negotiations MJ made sure we not only got the price we wanted but gained about $40,000 in equity. The Lender process with Soctt was simply having The E.Doc sign was great, not having to come down to the office made the process smooth. The lender set up for the notary to come out to our house to sign papers. We closed on our dream home in 30 days. It went so smoothly that we have our family looking at a condo around the corner and won't trust anyone else. HUGE THANK YOU MARQUITA JEFFRESS!

Superlative buyers’ agent! My husband and I have been in the real estate industry for more than 2 decades. We chose to work with Marquita because she identified an investment opportunity with a positive cash flow that made sense to us. She wrote our offer and with stern negotiations, secured the property at a great low price. She strives to provide concierge level service. She is attentive, detail oriented and driven to make sure we stay informed of the next steps and responsibilities. One thing is abundantly clear, Marquita loves her job, and this shines through in every interaction. Her willingness to go over and above all expectations is truly amazing. From connections in the industry to a tenacious negotiation style, Marquita knocked it out of the park.

​It was by coincidence that we first met Marquita Jeffress as she was the listing agent showing the house for sale across the street from our home. That home sold within one weekend of an open house so we followed up with Marquita and what a blessed coincidence it was. In short, she counseled us on what to do to get the best value for our property. Her real estate knowledge, her resources and her always on time follow-up were impeccable. We sold for well over the original thought of what we were going to originally list our home for. Even in times like this where homes have been on the market for weeks, after we followed Marquita’s advice on preparing our home for the best presentation for sale, our home received offers and sold with just one day of open house and she closed within a month. Great job Marquita!

I am so glad that I went with Ms. Marquita as an agent. I needed her encouraging texts and reminders every time I felt discouraged. With her encouragement, guidance, and help I able to own a deed to a property I called my own, and I was able to achieve my American 🇺🇸 dream.
