About MJ Sells The Bay

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.

I first met Marquita through my company when I focused on business banking and commercial loans. She's always been professional, responsive, and stays on top of things. Now that I'm looking to purchase my first home, I knew to go straight to Marquita. Her communication is consistent and she is one step ahead. She really cares about the client — not just the transaction. While interest rates are currently high, Marquita connected me with a few lenders to choose the best option for me. I can't wait for us to find the perfect home!

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.
