    Derek and Brandy gave Marc 5 stars out of 5
    Marc's knowledge of the regional housing market and his experience caring for military and veteran clients made him the clear choice to represent us. Faced with a daunting cross-country Permanent Change of Station move, in a housing market that is less than friendly to VA Loan customers, Marc secured the home of our dreams. From initial viewing, through contract negotiations, and ultimately to closing, we put our full trust and confidence in Marc and he performed with aplomb. Marc has our absolute highest recommendation, especially for our fellow military/veteran families who are relocating during the unprecedented challenges the current market presents.

    Marc's customer service, dedication and professionalism was beyond reproach. I explained to him what I desired in a home and he didn't stop until got me exactly what I wanted. From start to finish; he was actively involved!!! I'd encountered several inconveniences and mishaps along the way from the builder. Marc rendered a comfort of being there. He even made phone calls on my behalf to the builder. If you are in search of an devoted individual that also understands the lingo of veterans Marc is your guy. I look forward to doing and referring future customers.

    We highly recommend Marc. He helped us out with our move from Texas to California. We purchased a house while out of state and during a period of high demand in the house market. I reached out to him a couple of months before the planned move and he started looking for our house. He went above and beyond his services by showing us the house virtually, setting up the house and pest inspections, and ensuring that everything was done and the house was ready for move-in. It was not ideal to purchase a house that we have not seen in person, but Marc ensured the smooth process. Marc met us when we got to California, gave us the keys, and provided us with information that helped us settle into our new house. We love our house and we are grateful that we reached out to Marc when we did.

    Marc is an AMAZING realtor. His knowledge of the area and his dedication to his clients make him top notch. We relocated to Vacaville and our Relocation company was not the greatest. Marc went above and beyond in dealing with them in order to get our house sold and the deal closed on our new home. I think if it was not for Marc as our realtor the deal would not have been completed. I would recommend Marc to anyone wanting to purchase or sell a home.

    I used Navy Federal's real estate rewards program to find Marc and I'm glad I was paired with him. Marc made the entire process from deciding a price point to the close of escrow as simple as cutting butter with a hot knife held above a fire. Marc came prepared the day we met. Came prepared with comparables and a portfolio specific to my situation with why I should choose him to represent me. Immediately impressed. Every text I sent was answered quickly. Clear, concise answers. No running around the park trying to uncover lost buried treasure. I tried to be an extremely easy client. I was very flexible on every aspect of the same except for close of escrow date which I would not budge to meet my residency requirements for capital gains taxes. Rest assured Marc will take care of your sale/buying process with extra tender loving care.

    Very Knowledgeable in the local market. Always easy to reach & quick with answers to my questions. Marc was outstanding, polite, and professional. Marc was able to help me find a home even before I arrived to Travis AFB. Made my PCS that much smoother.

    Derek gave Marc 5 stars out of 5
    We're first time buyers, and with that comes a lot of uncertainty and apprehension about the buying process. The first time talking with Marc he said "We Will find you a home" and that's exactly what he did. Through every step Marc was there, to explain any detail, to answer any question, and to guide us through. Marc is always professional, courteous and patient. When we decided on a home he went above and beyond. He was dedicated and tenacious in helping us to reach our dream. When things fell apart with our lender Marc was there and had a new lender in less than 24 hours with better terms than we had before! This is the guy you want in your corner. He knows all the ropes, has all the contacts and is completely dedicated. We are completely satisfied and honestly impressed with Marc. I would not hesitate to recommend him to friends or family. If you're looking for a realtor you've found the best one.

    Marc worked with us in our recent move to Vacaville. Due to our circumstances, we were not able to physically tour homes before moving. He worked with our family and friends to show them the houses as well as conducted video walk throughs for us. He provided useful insight about the local areas and he also helped us through the learning process of buying our first home.

    Marc was diligent in getting me the right home, in the outrageously competitve market of 2021, he guided me on what type of home to look for and what my money would be best invested in. We went after several home in several different neighborhoods. Everytime we got outbid he always urged to tread on and continue. We eventually landed a great property and closed through all the complications we encountered. Highly recommended and trustworthy!

    We truly appreciate the help and expertise of Marc especially considering the hectic times. Marc was able to put my wife and I in a beautiful home at a price we were more than happy with. Just when my wife and I were allowing discouragement and frustration to start getting the better of us, Marc assured us that he was paying very close attention to these very unusual market trends, and he guaranteed he would find us something we would truly be happy with. Within days of Marc giving his promise, we found our new home! My wife and I are very excited to already have keys in hand and to start the moving process. Marc is incredibly kind, patient, knowledgeable, humorous, and professional. He was able to set us up with Alix and Loli over at Solano Mortgage. All of their expertise combined allowed us to find the home of our dreams with minimal friction (except insane market conditions)! We could not recommend Marc highly enough! Thank you very much Marc for fulfilling your promise to put us in our new home! Though not for some time, we truly hope to work with you again some day!

    Marc was an amazing asset and resource during our home buying process. As first time home buyers, we were clueless on the ins and outs of the real estate world. Marc answered all of our questions quickly and educated us on the process. Because of him, we were able to purchase the home of our dreams! Thank you Marc!

    Marc was deeply invested in representing my husband and I in our first home purchase. His knowledge of the real estate landscape put us at ease and he always maintained impeccable professionalism. Marc was timely in his responsiveness and never left us hanging in regard to information we needed for next steps. With a familiar understanding for the negotiations needed, he helped us through the tricky parts of the process and always had a reading on the pulse of the exchange. Marc made our home purchase happen and even found us any credits we qualified for to ease the early stress of our investment. Thanks to Marc we are happy new home owners!

    Clayton gave Marc 5 stars out of 5
    We relocated from Texas to Vacaville and reached out to Marc because our friends (who also relocated here) told us of the wonderful experience they had buying their home and just kept telling us, "You need to call Marc." From the very first phone call, the commitment was evident and we were immediately at ease. We submitted an offer, negotiated, extended our closing, and tried to keep up with the home buying process with Marc's guidance every step of the way. We were able to close before we moved out of our house in Texas, and Marc set up repairs on our house and got quotes for additional work while we were in route. We arrived to a house that was ready for us and free of immediate attention, allowing us to move in without worrying about anything. Marc was easy to reach, friendly, and listened to our concerns and provided information that helped us make informed decisions without pressure.

    Marc helped expedite the process tremendously by being very responsive and available when needed. He was very transparent when it came to time frames and did not make any step of the process feel rushed. He is a trustworthy individual and cares about his clients needs. I highly recommend him if you're looking to work with a reliable and diligent realtor.

    Bought our new home with Marc's help. The whole process was relatively easy and straight forward, despite problems selling our house back East. Marc knows the local market and provided us with honest answers and recommendations. He was always available to answer any questions we had; he went to houses we were interested in and made short videos for us to watch prior to us moving out to California. He knows the VA Loan program for veterans. Can't recommend Marc enough.

    When we worked with Marc, we already moved and was selling our second home. Obviously there were many little things that needed to be taken care of in order to sell the house. Marc was excellent in coordinating all the right people. We had clearing services, gardening, minor touch up in paint, etc. Everything was completed on a timely matter and we were able to close the house above my expectation. I would highly recommend Marc as a trust worthy and professional when it comes to buying/selling your home.

    Marc was great! He was professional, knowledgeable, trust worthy and very nice. When we first met him, he came with a portfolio that included his resume, examples of houses sold, marketing materials created and client testimonials. After we chose him as our realtor, he helped us get our home ready to list, including rolling up his sleeves to help us with a few things personally. He and his wife helped us stage our home and enlist a great photographer to do professional photos and put together a 360 degree tour. He held two virtual open houses, did great online marketing, and we got a great offer just 10 days after we went on the market, despite COVID. During escrow, Marc was supportive every step of the way all the way through to a successful closing. He even referred us to a fantastic realtor to help us purchase a home in HI! Marc will go above and beyond to bring you excellent service and make sure you are able to optimize your home sale. He is a wonderful person, and an amazing Realtor.

We would defiantly recommend you to anybody who needs to sell or buy a home.

    Marc was absolutely Phenomenal! His knowledge, commitment to Service, and professionalism were outstanding. Having served 31 years in the military, it was refreshing to work with someone (happens to be a fellow veteran) that operates from a set of distinguishing core values. Even during the current pandemic, Marc was responsive and seemed to be reading our minds! Outstanding from A-Z; I'm already referring other veterans! From initial offer to close (keys in hand) in less than 30 days - on a VA Jumbo loan! All thanks to Marc!

    Marc is amazing at his profession. The thing that amazed me the most, which I have not seen on other agents is his willingness to genuinely help and his speed. He never made excuses, when I wanted to see a property, he did work and in a few hours we were looking at that property. He is not telling you things just to tell you, he knows what he is doing and has vast experience. He is not in it for a quick sale, he cares and my wife and I are extremely happy and grateful to have worked with him. Marc is number #1 in his field because of his hard work, passion and dedication to his profession. I would recommend Mark to anyone and everyone. Thank You Marc, we purchased a home due to your Help :)

    I had the pleasure of working with Marc on the sale of my home. I met Marc on a Friday, the house was listed the following Wednesday and had multiple offers by that Friday '“ and above listing price! We even closed escrow a couple days ahead of time. Marc's extensive knowledge of the market, my homes value and his marketing expertise made this sale worry free. Marc handled the transaction from start to finish going above and beyond and took care of everything. Not only is Marc incredibly professional but he was also very responsive to my calls, texts and emails. I was kept informed every step of the way through out the transaction and felt well taken care of. I will certainly use Marc again!

Marc was very knowledgeable during the house search process and always did his research before showing us houses. Marc was a very good communicator with all parties involved and made sure we were updated at all times. Marc was professional, prompt and wonderful to work with. We have already recommended Marc to several friends and family. Thank you Marc, Daniel, Mallory +1 in the oven ;-)

    My wife and I can't say enough about Marc. His positive reviews are all very well founded. He was so incredibly helpful as we moved from overseas, and did everything he possibly could for us at every corner while being empathetic and understanding as we worked through a time zone change and a very difficult buy to make it all happen. You will NOT regret utilizing him! We consider him a family friend now, and will seek him out again in the future. Thank you, Marc!

    We are a military family and Marc helped us find the perfect home. We did not see the house before we bought it, but Marc filmed the interior and exterior, and answered any questions we asked him. After we bought the house Marc set up the Internet, house alarm, and made sure our plants were watered. This is the third house we bought, and Marc was the most responsive realtor we ever had. We would definitely choose Marc again!

    Not every home will sell in two hours of course! I met with the sellers and set up the home for pictures. Priced the home correctly, marketed the home with flyers, exposure on 100 different internet websites and Scheduled an Open House for the first weekend. I sent 500 Just Listed Post Cards to the neighbors to let them know of this amazing home coming on the market. Attention to detail and Marketing the home the right way gave us a great results!

    ' I have used Marc DeContreaus three times in the past to either help sell or purchase homes for my family. I have known Marc since 2005 as a Full time Realtor who works very diligently and honestly on behalf of his clients. When I became the Trustee for a property in Vacaville earlier this year, Marc was the perfect selection to help sell the property. Marc organized the Estate Sale, Donations of left over property after the estate sale to Charitable Foundations and then had the tax donation receipts delivered. He then took care of having the house completely emptied and cleaned. Helped us complete all of the disclosures, organized inspections while working with the Trust and placed the home on the market. He did Multiple Open Houses and advertised the home on multiple websites and publications until we received an acceptable offer for the home and trust. While in contract Marc continued to monitor the progress of the buyer and gave me reports on a regular basis. The home closed and recorded in a timely manner and we are very impressed with Marc's attention to detail. If your Selling or Buying a home look no further then Marc DeContreaus as your Realtor. He has a great deal of experience and will work very diligently and honestly on your behalf'. Ken Celli

    "I relocated to the Sacramento area after taking a new position at UC Davis. I stumbled into an open house that Marc was hosting and shared with him that I was new to the area and was looking for a home. From our first meeting, Marc was amazing. As a first time home-buyer, I had a million questions and Marc was VERY patient. He accommodated my very insane schedule, even showing me a house that I liked on Thanksgiving morning so that my parents could take a look. He walked me through every step of the way and always made me feel like I was his top priority. He communicated via text even after the sale was final to make sure that I was settling in alright. I can think of nothing else that I would ask of an agent. He knows his business and is a fierce advocate on behalf of his clients. I am thrilled to have worked with Marc and will be recommending him to family and friends." mjs edd 2004 Sander St, Woodland, CA 95776

    Marc DeContreaus did an amazing job helping to sell my home under pressure and he did so quickly. He achieved this by having my home in contract with in days of listing with multiple back up offers. Marc made the experience of selling my home stress free and resolved any issues that may have presented itself. He was always available and prompt in responding to any questions or concerns. I appreciate all that Marc did to help me with this transaction and look forward to working with him in the future and would highly recommend the service he provides.

    Marc did an amazing job guiding us through the home buying process. This was our first home purchase and he answered every question we had and explained in detail how everything works, timelines, inspections etc. Marc knew the area well and explained the difference between the cities in the area, price ranges, buying new construction vs what was on the market for sale along with giving advice regarding if we want to rent or sell later on. He was always very quick to respond, even late in the evening and worked around our schedule for everything and was available whenever we needed. Marc showed us numerous properties and provided honest feedback on what he thought about the property in regards to what we were looking for and his insight and eye for possible issues or non issues was greatly appreciated. All in all it was a lot less stress then we had imagined and prepared for thanks to Marc guiding us through everything. Our experience was buying a house with Marc but if/when we sell or rent the property he will be our first call and I'm confident that he will be there 100% for us just like he was with the purchase.

    Marc helped us sell our home in record time and purchase a beautiful home on contingency, during the holidays. He was honest about what we needed to do to get our home ready. What I appreciate most is that Marc is professional and ethical in all aspects of his profession. He helped us overcome every obstacle that came our way. I highly recommend Marc and would not ever think about using another realtor.

    Marc worked with us to sell our home and immediately repurchase another. Being that the offer we put in on the home we ended up buying was contingent upon the sale of our previous home, there was potential for complications. However, Marc is an experienced realtor and made the process as seamless as possible. He kept us informed throughout and was always willing to answer our questions. He took our concerns into consideration and promoted a partnership in which he guided us to our intended outcome. We never doubted that he had our best interests in mind. Thank you for all of your hard work on our behalf, Marc!

    Last year we were referred to a realtor from church. While his initial contact seemed proactive, it was like pulling teeth to get a call/text/email back from him.. it went on days.. sometimes weeks.. to the point that we were at a standstill and had to hold off selling our home, so we re-rented it. Fast forward and we wanted to try to sell again. This time my cousin referred me to Marc DeContreaus. He had recently helped her located and buy a home in Citrus Heights. She had been singing his praises and constantly had said she had wished that she had retained him to sell her house as well. Before meeting Marc, she retained a local realtor who had a very high sales record. She figured, since her record was the highest in Solano County, she could sell her house quickly as well. Turned out, while she did sell her house, it was well below what she initially promised. Her comps and appraisal both proved that her listing price was too overpriced. Moral of the story, she was more concerned in closing the house regardless if the interest of her sellers were best served. It was all about the number of closings for her month. This is the third family that has said the same thing. So I was relieved that I wasn't fooled by the high number of closings, but instead looked at the quality of reviews by actual seller clients. When meeting Marc, it was like night and day between him and the prior two realtors. He listened to all our needs and concerns and was able to sum up within 5 minutes that our biggest thing is COMMUNICATION! We spent a month renovating the home, and Marc was there every step of the way helping advise us what we should do or shouldn't do, or what we should spend to get the best investment back or what we shouldn't spend. He was so proactive with the open houses, negotiations, inspections, every single step of the way. Not only that, but we had (2) failed escrows when we put our home on the market in March. Nothing due to us or Marc, but either because it was the client's financing, or their realtor wasn't experienced enough to be able to educate their client on what is not or is important in reviewing inspection reports. Nevertheless, it was like an emotional roller coaster, but Marc never wavered. He remained confident and PROMISED us that the house will sell. Everything he said about the market and the inventory, and the comps, all rang true. He knew what to say and what to request in order to make both us and the buyers feel comfortable and fully informed in proceeding through escrow. Did I mention already that the communicate was out of this world? He immediately updated us via text, even daily/nightly, email or phone calls and bent over backwards to make sure he pushed forward all the wonderful things that our home had to offer. Marc will be the first one we call to sell our other rentals, as well as when we decide to downside our primary home down the line. We are thankful and blessed to be able to meet him and go through what would've been a much more stressful and burdensome time in our lives. Our house sold in less than two months. And we knew that it would've been much longer had Marc not been so aggressive especially in the competitive market and inventory increasing daily. We also know that it would've closed much sooner had the two prior buyers had a realtor like Marc to represent them and educate them as well. Call Marc! You will not regret it!

    I would recommend Marc to anyone in search of the home that is to fulfill not only their needs, but wants as well. We gave him the daunting task of not just a small geographic area, but a certain type of home. He quickly was on the race to find us just that. Like many people, we used Zillow and other sites/apps to aid our search. Marc always seemed to be one step ahead of whatever was posted. He worked around our schedule, but was helpful in letting us known when we need to alter our schedule to jump ahead of the competition. His customer service is superb. He is patient in explaining everything you need to know, gives background on the topics to help you digest the concepts, while at the same time keeping you on point so that you don't miss an opportunity. His work ethic is unmatched as is availability at all hours to assist you. He even offered assistance in things I did not expect a realtor to do. When inspections, lender, seller, etc were caught up in unspecified delays...he would reach out to them to remove the barriers so that the escrow closed on time. Lastly, we felt that he just became a part of the family due to the way he took care of us, but also the way he put us at ease during all the typical stresses of searching and buying a home. You might find a house with someone else, but it won't be the level of experience and memories that stick with you for a lifetime. 

    I ended up working with Marc for about a year, before I found a house in my price range that I liked enough to buy. It was an "off and on" process. Not only do I appreciate Marc's professional knowledge and abilities, but also the fact that he didn't pressure me to buy before I was ready. That was an extremely important factor for me. I would highly recommend Marc to anyone looking for a realtor
