To Whom It May Concern,
It is with great pleasure and the utmost gratitude that we share some comments on our experience of purchasing a home with our realtor, Mariela Bartens. I previously worked as a realtor, so I’ve been exposed to the good, the bad, and the ugly. Mariela is one of the most professional, knowledgeable realtors I’ve had the pleasure of working with. If you want someone that values honesty, brevity, and clarity; then look no further!
The experience at each phase of the sales effort was superior, such as innovative efforts in searching for potential properties, useful insights on neighborhoods, and proactive facilitation during the sale negotiations. All of these tasks were accomplished with a noticeable degree of competence, humility, integrity, and grace. Mariela is someone that won’t waste your time or hers; she gets things done and communicates promptly and efficiently!
We highly recommend Mariela Bartens for any real estate needs in the Tallahassee area. You will not find a better realtor!

Mariela thanks for all that you have done for me. I love my house and am very satisfied with your services! Below is my testimonial.


Mariela was an absolute pleasure to work with. She gave sound advice and negotiated for my best interest very successfully! I was able to move into my home without having to pay closing costs! She constantly went out of her way to meet with inspectors and schedule all the necessary appointments (even on her vacation). I highly recommend Mariela for anyone who is looking for a realtor.

Mariela Santurri

When USAA buying service referred me to Coldwell Bankers to assist me in the purchase of my home, I was at first a little skeptical as to what type of service they would provide.
Ms. Santurri was assigned as my Realtor. After meeting with her and explaining what I was looking for Ms. Santurri provided me with many listings which we looked at over a period of several months. She was always available and very responsive and on time at the many properties we looked at. She provided a level of service that far exceeded my expectations. She had a superior knowledge of the market and lenders and worked with me and the lender to facilitate the entire purchase to closing process without any delays or surprises. I could not be more satisfied with Mariela’s attention and hard work in helping me find that perfect home that fit my needs and at the price I could afford.
I would highly recommend Mariela to anyone either buying or selling real estate. She is a real professional in every sense of the word.

Thanks for all your help with the house, we couldn’t have done it without you. We were under a little bit of stress with the new baby on the way trying to get out of the trailer and we were able to find something we both liked very quickly. You did a very good job of representing us and we will definitely provide a referral. Thanks again. -Stephen

Thank you so much for all your help and hard work in finding us a new home. We love the house and could not have found it without you. We just got back from Paris  and thought of you whe we were there. Hope you enjoy these Parisian treats. Thanks again for all your help. Stephen and Kerry Skoropat



 "Mariela helped to make our home buying experience more enjoyable. She was always available, responsive to emails/phone calls and I never had to remind her about upcoming deadlines. Before I could worry about something she already had it under control and did a great job of reminding me of things I needed to do as well. Mariela went above and beyond my expectations and really made buying a house a fun experience for me and my family - Brian Legg"
I hope my testimonial brings you more business, you did great! Thanks again!
PS: We have 2 friends (both are families) looking to buy a home soon, I'll pass them your card :)
