Shane Marrion reviews

"I am a homeowner as well as a relatively small scale property investor. Experienced enough to see the risks, but not experienced enough to see every angle. When I arrived here from California having had experience with multiple sales and purchases, my first priority was to interview real estate agents in order to find one who really knows this tough and competitive market. More than that, I was determined to find someone who has the integrity to look out for MY best interests in every way. Shane is without any doubt the most skilled and selfless real estate agent that I have met with. His integrity and devotion to the client is beyond question, and he knows these tricky markets inside out. 

Regardless of whether you are a buyer or a seller Shane will guide you through the process with deftness and honesty. And in the event that a purchase or sale becomes fraught, due to problems or any other reasons, you will be PARTICULARLY glad to be working with an expert of his experience and honesty."

"I meant to write this review earlier...
I sold my condo in Somerville through Benoit Real Estate with Shane Marrion.  He also worked with me on purchasing my new home out in the suburbs, closer to my work.
The condo went under agreement in June for about 25% OVER asking price.  This was entirely a result of Shane's experience and his excellent service.
I tried to sell the condo the year before through a well known national realtor without any luck.  Shane knows the Somerville market VERY well.  He understands that each neighborhood essentially has its own market.
On my buying side, Shane also worked with me to ensure that I did not over pay for the new home.  He meticulously looked over all of the recent comparable home sales and spearheaded the bargaining until we both were satisfied with the sale price.
Shane is a true professional at his job and strives to ensure complete satisfaction through the stressful process of buying and selling real estate."

"Shane Marrion is "the go to real estate broker". If you are going to call anyone, call Shane. We had contact with three other real estate brokers before Shane and they could not do what Shane did. Shane sold our Cambridge property for an excellent price in a timely manner. Shane knows the real estate markets, has the contacts you need and fine tunes the selling process to get the deal done quickly. Shane is professional, goes above and beyond what you expect of an agent to produce outstanding results in the client's best interest. Shane handles challenging situations with finesse unlike other brokers. Shane helped us move to the next step. Shane is the expert in selling, buying and rentals. Shane is the broker we recommend to our family and friends. Shane Marrion is a genuine person."

"My wife and I dealt with Shane and Justin of Benoit while trying to purchase a house in Somerville.  We found them to be honest, professional, and they went the extra mile to get us a great deal in a very tough market.  They were also extremely patient, understanding and pleasant to deal with despite us not being the easiest of clients at times.  They are solid people to do business with."

"I'm an absentee landlord in Somerville.  I usually use Craigslist to find new tenants.  This time I wanted to get some help.  I worked with another agency for 2 weeks and they couldn't find people to move in to my apartment.  I worked with Shane at Benoit and IN ONE DAY HE FOUND SOMEONE....In fact he had multiple interested parties.  Shane's got my business going forward for sure.  In addition to helping me, the communication was excellent, the agent (Will) went above and beyond and the whole thing has been FIVE STARS.  Seriously.  Keepers."

"Shane Marrion was referred to us by our neighbors  and we used him to sell our condo in Cambridge. He sold himself to us very persuasively and we selected him over other agents in the area. Although he asked for a higher commission than others, he proved himself a truly excellent seller. Our condo sold after the first open house. He guided us through its staging (particularly in terms of work that needed to be done, bringing in painters and plumbers etc super-fast). He was an excellent negotiator, conveying to the buyers to value of our property once again persuasively and honestly. To sell a property, you need someone who can sell, tell you what to do and negotiate really really well. Shane is truly skilled in all this."

"I met broker/owner Shane about 10 years ago when I started looking to buy rental property in Somerville area and since then I've always go to him when it comes to buy/sell properties.  He is super responsible, caring, supportive and patient.  He's very knowledgeable and well connected with bankers, lawyers as well as contractors and handy men.  To me, it's like a one stop shopping for RE and worry free."

"Great service from Shane over at Benoit. Very knowledgeable of Cambridge/Somerville real estate and knows all the ins and outs associated with the purchase process. His network of real estate contractors is a great plus too. After I purchased through Benoit, I was able to get multiple recommendations from Shane on people who could help with the various projects around the house. He also worked with several banks who have really competitive rates. Responsive real estate professional."
