Client Testimonials

Diligent, Reliable, Patient, Efficient & Has Good Humor!

Outstanding virtues of fair-mindedness and firmness

“From mission impossible to mission accomplished due to Marissa Joven’s diligence, reliability, patience, good humor,and efficiency. Marissa needed to use these qualities, for I was a very nervous home-owner, living on another continent 6,000 miles away, and seeking to sell my home in Los Angeles. Suspicion was my middle-name.  I must not forget to mention Marissa’s outstanding virtues of fair-mindedness and firmness. There were no cutting corners, no loose ends, and no double-talk. Her word is her bond, and trustworthiness should be her middle name.  From Marissa, I learned some interesting things about selling/buying homes, for example, that the listing agent must be knowledgeable about City Codes and the interests of all parties, and be committed to mutually beneficial relationships with clients. I am very glad that I chose Marissa to be my agent.  I think the owner of my home would agree with my choice.” Y. W. via Yelp

Exceptional Advice & Guidance!

Excellent Negotiating Skills

“I wanted to write this review because I had a great experience working with Marissa Joven at Pasadena Views to purchase and sell my home in Pasadena, CA. When I first moved to CA, I was touring an open house and had the good fortune of meeting Marissa.  I had experience buying homes in other states, but knew I needed to learn about the CA real estate market. Upon meeting Marissa I was immediately impressed by her knowledge of the local market and her welcoming personality. I made an appointment so we can get acquainted, and afterwards I knew I found the person to help with my house hunt. Marissa took the time to get to know my real estate needs; and educated me on the CA real estate market. Marissa was easy to work with, and she proved to be adept at real estate. She demonstrated excellent negotiating skills and made sure all the details of a real estate transaction were taken care of. I believe with Marissa’s help I was able to get the home I wanted in a very competitive market. I couldn’t have been happier. …  Fast-forward two years later, I took a job out-of-state and had to relocate. When it came time to sell the home I loved I didn’t hesitate to ask Marissa for assistance. Once again, she proved to be a very valuable resource as she took the time to understand my needs, help me price my home, negotiate offers, and manage the real estate transaction. She made suggestions to get my home to sell for top dollar and quickly. And, at times when the buyer and their agent were acting dysfunctional, Marissa was able to provide clarity and keep the sale moving along. Her advice and guidance was exceptional. I couldn’t have asked for a better business partner for handling my real estate needs and I wouldn’t hesitate to utilize her services again or recommend her services to friends and family.” – Mario S. via Yelp

Personalized, kind and professional real estate services

Marissa and her colleagues follow-up immediately, listen to, and act upon concerns

“There are few things more stressful than selling a house, looking for a new one, and/or going through the arduous process of finding the right one.  That said, our real estate agent, Marissa Joven, at Pasadena Views is a top-notch in every sense of the phrase.  We had gone through another agency for our sale and were more than jaded by a multitude of disappointments.  Once we closed escrow on our sale I searched Yelp for a great local realtor and found Ms. Joven.  What sets her, and the agents at Pasadena views apart is that she (and her colleagues) actually follow-up immediately, listen to, and act upon concerns.  She kept in close contact with me and my husband during the entire search and sale process during which both of us happened to have particularly intense and not-normal work schedules.  She always made sure that we were immediately notified during all of the processes, and was kind and professional during each step.  In addition, Ms. Joven’s associate Irina Netchaev was equally as attentive during a brief vacation Ms. Joven took.  By the end of the process we felt so well taken care of, it was almost like she became family.  If you are struggling to find personalized, kind, and professional real estate services: look no further” – Elisabeth E. via Yelp

Very Hard Working and a Great Person

She is very knowledgeable and professional.

“My husband and I just bought a property. Marissa Joven was our agent and we couldn’t be happier. She is very hard working and a great person. She always replied to our inquiries very quickly, and helped us in considering things we hadn’t though about that ended up being important. She is very knowledgeable and professional. We closed in 25 days even with new regulations in place. Pasadena Views is wonderful!” – Paula M. via Yelp

Highly Recommend Marissa as your Next Trusted and Committed Agent!

Did a stellar job!

“We easily leased our condo in Pasadena thanks to the impressive work of Marissa Joven! We live in Texas so we needed a dependable and trustworthy agent to help us. One of our close friends who had a great experience with Marissa, recommended her to us. We were so fortunate because though we have exchanged many phone calls, texts and detailed emails about our property, we have never physically met Marissa but she was able to find new qualified tenants that were a perfect match for us and our condo. We had multiple offers within days!

She did a stellar job from professional photos, advertising the property in various mediums to coordinating walk-throughs and showings without inconveniencing the current tenants. Surprisingly, our old tenants also worked with Marissa to buy their new dream home!  Looks like she is a highly sought after agent!

Marissa organized all the paperwork and sent us a custom USB drive with all the paperwork copies!

We look forward to working with Marissa in the future and highly recommend her as your next trusted and committed agent!” – Dave J. via Yelp

Great Heart and really Cares for her Clients

Marissa was thorough, professional and attentive!

“When my wife and I decided to buy our first home in Pasadena we wanted an agent who was familiar with that market. We came across Pasadena Views Real Estate by chance and it was best thing to happen to us during our home search. We inquired about a listing and promptly received a text from Marissa Joven and we are so fortunate we were able to work with her. From day one, Marissa was thorough, professional and attentive. She would set up showings–same day whenever possible–and she was able to work with our demanding schedule. Texts, phone calls and emails we were returned immediately. This was our first home purchase and Marissa took the time to educate us about the ins and outs of the home buying process. Not only is Marissa great at was she does, but she has such a great heart and really cares for her clients.

She even recommended a lender who helped make the process smooth and stress-free. And, as we neared the end of escrow, Marissa reminded us to take care of the little things, like turning on utilities and transferring internet and cable service.

Everyone she works with exhibited a similar level of professionalism and we couldn’t have been happier with the attention we received. Although we know we weren’t here only clients, it felt like we were.

If you’re in the market for a home in Pasadena, do yourself a favor and work with Marissa Joven and Pasadena Views!” Matthew C. via Yelp

Love at First Sight for First Time Home Buyers

“My wife and I bought our first home two months ago with the help Irina and Marissa and we couldn’t be happier.

The process started with Irina sitting down with us talking us through the entire home buying and escrow process before beginning the search, so once we found the place that we wanted we could immediately move forward without any confusion on what happens next. Both Irina and Marissa were very respectful of our what we wanted in a home (Big Kitchen!) and whenever something came on the market they were sure to let us know. Marissa was always able to fit our schedule for viewings and arrived promptly. (Sorry that I was always a few minutes late, it was my fault every-time!) We felt very comfortable discussing the pros and cons of each property, and Marissa was always understanding if we ended up being a little nitpicky in our decision making.

When we found our home it was love at first sight, when I said we would like to make an offer; Irina and Marissa stepped into overdrive to have the paperwork ready for us in a few short hours. The escrow process happened in a blindingly fast 3 weeks, during which Irina and Marissa were always a quick email or phone call away if there were any questions or concerns. Now we have been living in our new home for two months and couldn’t be happier.

5 stars seems too low to give them. I found them highly professional, courteous and very experienced with the Industry. They were able to give a pair of first time home buyers an amazing chance in a market that was very disadvantageous to us. I would definitely recommend to any family or friends who are looking into buying or selling homes in the Pasadena.” – Charles S. via Yelp

Very professional

“I was very impressed with the Pasadena Views website and found it really helpful as it was regularly updated when new properties came on line.  Marissa Joven was very helpful in explaining the process of buying real estate and what to expect of the current market.  I found her very well informed and hard working.  My daughter and I saw several properties with her assistance, and she was very professional.” – Mary Anne F.
