The Guillermo Salas Team Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

We gave our listing to The Salas Team during a cool real estate market.

Several very similar homes in our neighborhood were also on the market, and Guillermo and Danielle came through with an excellent offer and a quick sale. Much appreciated.

Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness Marcus is fantastic to work with.

He is extremely professional and knowledgeable but also very down to earth. Marcus was always available to answer our questions and lead us in the right direction. When it came time to pick an offer for our house he thoroughly discussed each offer with us, making sure that we understood what was being offered to ensure that we choose the best one for us. I highly recommend Marcus if you are looking for a realtor. You will not be disappointed.

Jennifer Derrick

Lay Gauv was recommended by a family member to us and we couldn’t have chosen a better realtor!

He kept an open line of communication with us and always followed up with our thoughts on houses. We’ve seen many houses with him and he was professional with us and other realtors. Lay was patient, never pushed/swayed us one way or another but was always honest with us. We had many talks about our game plan and what we were comfortable with. He’s easily reachable and on top of deadlines which are great qualities you’ll want in a realtor. We found our dream home after many searches.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Where do we even begin about working with Marcus!

He's an amazing real estate agent who knows his stuff. Even with the crazy market we were facing, Marcus knew exactly what tactics to use to help us even be able to play in the market. His guidance and expertise were extremely helpful when shopping for a home, he knew what we needed and what we were looking for. One of the best things that we loved while working with Marcus was that he was very quick to respond to emails, texts and phone calls. Marcus also worked closely with the showing agent, Derek and together they really made an amazing team. Not even sure how many houses we saw and how many offers we've put, but they both worked hard and closely with each other to schedule showings, and Marcus worked his magic when we saw a potential home, worked hard and tirelessly to make sure the offer we wanted to put forward was the best. If you go with Marcus and team, you definitely are in good hands! Marcus will ensure that you and your family Wil have the perfect home that you've dreamt of! Thanks again Marcus for all you've done for us, and even helping us settle down and still answer questions even when we bought the house! He's your go to person! So what you waiting for? 😏

Nicky Varghese

From day 1 Marcus has been there for us.

He was always available when we needed him. Our first 2 homes did not work for us, but like they say 3 times a charm. We finally landed that dream home we always wanted. He even offered to roll up his sleeves and give a helping hand on our in day. Marcus deserves 10 stars ratings. My wife and myself wish you all the best in your career and we would highly recommend our family and friends for your excellent service.

Gregory Good

Positive: Professionalism My husband and I decided to go with Lay Gauv to purchase our first rental properties.

We are so glad we did. He was there whenever we needed him. He answered every question. He guided and helped us down to the smallest detail. If you are looking for a realtor whom you can trust, we highly recommend Lay. You won't be disappointed.

Mary Joanne Fider

We had the pleasure to work with Lay Gauv to purchase our new home.

Lay was always incredibly responsive and flexible with his availability to accommodate our busy schedules. Freely sharing his insight, he helped us look through a different lens when touring homes - his unique perspectives and insight into the market created a clear pathway for a smooth negotiation and closing that put us into our new home.

Wedding Kylie & Scott

Marcus is very knowledgeable and attentive to details.

He always responded promptly to our questions and concerns and he kept us informed throughout the process of selling our home. He sold our house quickly and obtained offers which exceeded our asking price. We would highly recommend Marcus to potential buyers or sellers of real estate.

Eleanor Webster

They did a great job in walking me through the home buying process, specifically Marcus.

I travel for work, so I don’t have much time when home, but they made it very easy for me.

Dan Smale

Positive: Professionalism Yadi helped me immensely in finding and settling into my new apartment.

I moved from out of state so I was really nervous about finding a good apartment but she gave me informational and detailed video walkthroughs of all the apartments that fit my criterias. She answered all my questions about the apartment and also helped me understand the pros and cons of different areas based on my requirements. She really made my decision making process easy. On top of everything, guided me through the paperwork process and coordinated everything till I settled in. I recommend ST Realty. I’m sure everyone else is also as helpful and great like Yadi.

Shweta Tiwari

Marcus was absolutely phenomenal!

! He made the home buying process seamless, and took the time to explain anything that I needed to know. He was knowledgeable about the area, and had great advice to share. He was definitely on my team, and helped me get a great deal on a home. I would undoubtedly use Marcus again, and recommend him to anyone!

Brandon Spradlin

Marcus is very professional and helpful.

He is always available to answer questions and has his client’s best interest in mind. I highly recommend him!

Craig Brennan

Marcus was easy to work with and had a calm demeanor that really helped us through our first home sale in 25 years.

He was thoughtful, courteous and a good listener. Marcus was fanatically responsive and thoroughly answered all of our questions. His sales strategy was spot on -- we sold the house in 2 days! Well done Marcus!

Derek Viscusi

I bought a house nearly 3 months ago; Lay Gauv was my Realtor.

He is fantastic! I cannot recommend him highly enough--he knew what I wanted before I did. When I asked him how he managed to know so well, he said, "I listen." And he does. He found me the exact house I wanted, he arranged everything so that the process was actually painless, and he provided invaluable information every step of the way. Lay is professional, ethical, and smart. He knows the housing market very, very well. Lay is The Best.

Sona Or

Marcus provided exceptional service to me and my partner in selling a 4 property rental portfolio.

He provided a strong valuation of the properties and marketed them for us to sell at the valuation. The transaction was delayed on the buyers end during the pandemic but Marcus kept the deal moving and got us across the finish line. I would absolutely recommend him for any real estate transaction.

Jim Emme

I worked with Marcus Shellenberger on my first real estate purchase.

He helped me purchase a multi-family home that was already occupied! They have a ton of great resources, provide a lot of great information, and are a pleasure to work with!

Bryan Uribe

We have been working with Marcus for the last three years, purchased 2 investment properties with his help in Philadelphia.

Always ready to help, very responsive, professional and patient. Provides necessary information but never too pushy. Highly recommended

Susan Shen

Marcus is a very knowledgeable realtor.

He clearly explains the process and can easily answer any questions that pop up. He navigated the ever changing Covid restrictions and rules flawlessly for us when we bought our house in March of 2020 and made sure we were still able to settle on our house! He is respectable and trust worthy and I would recommend him to all my friends and family

Trish Wyatt

Amazing highly recommend went above and beyond.

If your in need of an agent Marcus is definitely your guy. Marcus worked super fast to get our house on the market and under contract within a week!

Josh Armstrong

Lay Gauv did an excellent job in all facets of our transaction.

In late 2020 my husband and I decided to leave central New Jersey, where we have lived for over fifty years and move to Delaware County to be near our children. After looking at several condos with Lay our search concentrated on Terrazza in Newtown Square. We looked at several apartments in the complex and Lay was able to learn of our priorities. When a sellers agent contacted Lay about a unit that would not go on the market for several months to close in September 2021 Lay realized that it checked all our boxes. As a result, and with guidance from Lay, we signed a contract the end of December to close in September. Because of the unusually long lead time Lay was able to arrange several visits for us in this still occupied apartment including a visit that included our contractors so that remodeling plans could be finalized. Lay did an excellent job guiding us through all the paperwork and procedures from contract to closing which he attended. It had been many years since my husband and I had completed a real estate transaction and Lay’s expertise made the entire process easy for us. He also gave us guidance as to procedures and locations for getting Pennsylvania auto registrations and drivers licenses.

Sue Davis

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value I do recommend Marcus Shellenberger Buying a house within the first half of 2020 was extremely challenging.

Not only the pandemia situation but also the low interest rate and people buying houses more than usual added it a little difficulty to the process. We are a family of five moving from Texas so all combined was a recipe for disaster. Marcus was able to help us through the stressing process. He communicates in a perfect timely manner, he is available and he is clear. He knows the process, the area and comes up with creative ideas to be ahead of other buyers. He can work with multicultural families as we are and has the connections needed to complete the process (loan and credit score companies). I will work again 100 times with Marcus and be always delighted and grateful.

Daniella Perez Dominguez

Marcus is a great agent, very responsable, full of knowledge and skills for negatiation, he sold My house un récord time.

If You need a good agent, here is Marcus shellenberger.Recomended!

Daniella Perez

When my girlfriend and I first started shopping for homes, we quickly realized how little we knew about the whole homebuying process.

Immediately, our priority was to find an agent who was knowledgeable but just as importantly, patient as we had hundreds of questions. It took a while to find that agent, but it was worth the wait. Marcus was available day and night, 7 days a week to answer any question we had, big or small. He immediately made us feel comfortable and confident as we navigated the market. Marcus would often move his schedule around at the drop of a hat to cater to our spur of the moment requests to visit homes. We constantly leaned on Marcus for his input every step of the way as his knowledge and experience was a valuable resource for us. Marcus did all the heavy lifting on our behalf which allowed us to focus on what was most important for us, finding our dream home. We were also very impressed with the rest of the staff in his agency. They were very professional, accommodating and polite. We would highly recommend Marcus to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. We are so fortunate we had him in our corner, looking out for us every step of the way. He truly made the whole experience fun and easy.

Michael Briley

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness Lay was great, he was always available and on top of the process.

He is patient and a great negotiator. You couldn’t ask for more in a real estate agent.

Cong Dinh

Wow, what can I say.

We have had a phenomenal experience with the Salas team. Super attentive, and knowledgeable. It's nice to have someone reliable standing shoulder to shoulder with you, guiding you through the ups and downs of buying or selling a house. I have since referred them to other family members and they'll been consistently great. Highly recommend!!

Pete Zografakis

Guillermo Salas is the only Realtor that I would recommend to family and friends.

He is trustworthy and attentive and went to extra lengths to accommodate our needs. We were looking to upgrade from a starter home and were interested in specific types of homes in a few select pockets of our neighborhood. Guillermo provided us an extensive view of the market offerings in our area, as well as valuable data that helped in our negotiations. He made an inherently stressful process profoundly easier. We couldn’t be happier with our new home and are grateful to Guillermo and his team for their kindness, care, and professionalism.

Keir Politz

Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness I'm highly recommended Lay Gauv.

He is very helpful and responsive for any questions you wanted to know especially for first home buyer.

Mei Chow

Marcus was fantastic to work with, on both the buying and selling end of our real estate journey.

Buying: He listened to what we were looking for and helped us set up useful parameters to narrow our search down. He was very quick setting up appointments for us and alerting us to open houses in the area that matched our criteria. When we got into the houses for tours, he would point out things to consider, potential problems, and some benefits to each property that we may not have thought of. When we found the house we wanted to put down an offer for, he helped us formulate a plan that would give us the strongest position possible. Selling: He walked us though tweaks, improvements, and guidelines for getting our property ready to sell. He sat us down and went over comps in the area and helped come up with a plan that would get us under contract for a number that we were happy with. Overall, Marcus is an extremely knowledgeable and transparent agent that I would recommend to anyone.

willsandbills

I travel for work and went on a two week business trip the day I put in an offer for my home.

Despite being away for most of the buying process, Marcus and his team made sure I was always up to speed and kept the process moving in the right direction. Everyone on his team was very helpful and quick to answer any questions I had.

Dan Smale

We worked with Marcus who was very accommodating with our busy schedules and took the time to show us all of the properties we had in mind.

Our process took a while and involved several negotiations and Marcus did an excellent job in representing us through our first home buying process. I would absolutely recommended them for anyone looking to buy a home!

Samual Verdugo

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Lay was our first choice for handling the sale of our home.

We knew he would work hard for us, but the results were even better than expected. His knowledge of the area and market was second to none, which resulted in multiple offers being presented in only a few days on the market. He was also able to negotiate the sale well above asking. I would highly recommend Lay to anybody in the home buying or selling market. Marcus was a rock star in helping us buy our dream forever home. He was very patient and dedicated in both showing us homes that he found as well as homes that we were interested in seeing, in some cases 4-5 homes a day spread across NJ. The result was even better than expected as he was able to negotiate through a bidding war and get us our dream home. His knowledge of the area and market was second to none. I would highly recommend Marcus to anybody in the home buying or selling market.

Mark Conmy

Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness I needed to move quickly but was not looking to compromise on some of the must haves on my list.

Lay at The Salas Team was professional, friendly, had great communication, honest with his opinions, proactive, had knowledge on the area I was searching for and really made the whole experience easy and stress free. He truly knows the market and made great recommendations for me. I was able to find a home in a matter of weeks, negotiations and closing went smoothly. Highly recommended!

Ming

Wow - what can I say.

Being a first time home buyer, I was so nervous at the thought of buying a house. The Salas team was there for me and explained the entire process from start to finish. I never felt like I was misinformed and they really helped put me at ease. I would highly recommend them to anyone who asks!

Jack Mondo

Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness Brittany has been *EXTREMELY* responsive and a wonderful negotiator!

I moved across the country from Colorado to Pennsylvania and she made what could have been an extremely difficult process as painless and efficient as possible. If you are the type of person who wants quick responses to communication and strong follow up, go with Brittany!!

Carlos Moll

We have worked with the Salas Team with our investment properties and our primary home.

I cannot recommend them highly enough. They treated us like family - and answered every question we had (and we ask a LOT of questions). Their advice was always measured, careful and considerate. We will always go back to the Salas Team and send our family and friends as well.

Antranig G

Lay was amazing to work with.

He was so professional, organized, and knowledgeable about the market. He helped us work through all the details and help us strategize the agreement to help us win the bid against 19 others buyers. He is honest and has great network connections in the Philadelphia market. Lay understand the market and made great recommendations for us. I would highly recommend him!

Vi Tran

Alex Wilcox

Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness Marcus Shellenberger represented us as both a buyers and sellers agent as we recently sold our house in Philly for a move across the bridge to NJ.

From the very beginning, Marcus showed a high level of knowledge regarding all aspects of buying and selling. He kept us informed every step of the way and was always patiend and willing to answer my many, many questions! He was a great negotiator, always let us know what our options were and I felt confident we were in good hands throught the whole process. I highly reccomend Marcus for any of your homebuying/selling transactions.

Gabby Berrios

We really appreciate the personal touch from their firm.

Their agent Marcus was helpful and sold our house in record time for above asking. I really can't be more thankful.

Evan Gatti

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Brittany Lenchuk was an absolute Godsend.

She knows this crazy and insane market. She was incredibly patient with us. She was readily available and even gave us more help with Derek. She could “read” me as to whether or not I liked a place. She kept her cool when I would literally just turn around and walk out after just opening the front door. Brittany stuck with us and did not give up. I truly appreciate and respect her work ethic. She is very smart and used her skills to help us achieve our goal of finding a house without having to break our budget. She is savvy negotiator who stopped an open house for us. She helped us every step of the way. Thank you so much! Sincerely, Megen Demeter

Margaret Demeter

What can I say about the company, specifically Marcus.

They were professional from the very beginning. Our rep, Marcus was always available for questions, day or night. He kept us abreast of everything during the process. His expertise and diligence is commendable. I strongly recommend and trust in the Salas Group to provide the best experience possible.

Margie Pannell

Marcus was a pleasure to work with.

Overall experience has been exceptional throughout the entire process. He is easy to work with. Very professional at all times. Responses were always given within a timely manner. We appreciate how knowledgeable and thorough he was with any information that given or questions that we had. We will definitely recommend and work with on him on future purchases/sales.

Marcus was awesome!

From the first day we met he was always there to answer any questions. I told him what I wanted in a home and he made sure I got just that. He put the ease in first time home buying and also connected me with a great mortgage lender. Anytime I had a question he would respond to my texts no matter the day or time. Very professional, knowledgeable and pleasant. You won't be disappointed! Now I am enjoying my new home thanks to him.

Sam Cowell

Lay Gauv is an amazing realtor.

He helped us sell our home. He was honest, helpful and went out of his way several times throughout the process to answer our questions and to increase our chances of selling our home at the best price. We strongly recommend choosing Lay's services and the Salas Team over any other realtor.

AJ “AJ” Choudhary

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Absolutely top marks to Brittany Lenchuk.

She was an excellent negotiator, and responded quickly to texts or calls. It was particularly reassuring to know it would always be her at the end of the phone. She has just the right blend of professional and friendly, and was unfailingly helpful. Polite and courteous at all times . Have no doubts about using this estate agent you will not be disappointed.

Roksolana Mykhaylyuk

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness We worked with Lay Gauv through an rollercoaster ride of a year!

He’s been responsive and collective at the same time while we were hunting for the perfect house. He gave honest opinions and was willing to ride the journey with us throughout and even through the pandemic!

Jane Smith

Marcus helped me lease units and did a fantastic job.

He was very responsive and proactive (an added challenge was the pandemic and the lock down). He did a great job -- I will be using him again and recommend others to do the same.

Tom McFadden

susan shen

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Lay was an ASTOUNDING agent!

He always answered his call (even at after work hours and sometimes mid-night) and replied to emails swiftly. He had a terrific understanding of the local market and I’ll use him again the next time I buy a home. Highly recommended! He was able to get me my first property for under asking and the appraisal came in $10k above my purchase price. It is more important than ever to have the right agent representing you! You can save a lot of money! Thank you Lay for the time and effort you put in and getting me this house!

Hung Tran

First time home buyer!

Hands down best realtor we ever worked with! Before we met Lay we worked with 2 other realtors that opened doors for us and had little to none input or knowledge to help us with buying our first home. We met Lay during the pandemic when the market was very limited and showing of homes were limited. Lay really took the time weekly to check in on us and went the extra mile to reach out to us personally whenever there was a house that came on the market that fit what we wanted. He was on his A game and we needed that as first time home buyers. Only 6 months into looking, Lay helped us find our beautiful first home. He walked us through the whole process working out every given scenario possible with all the pros and cons. Any obstacle that came our way Lay had a solution and back up plan for us. 10 months after closing he stills checks on us to see how we’re doing. Great communication and quality work, a realtor that not only cares but can get you want in this competitive market.

Vann Ly

Marcus assisted us with our home search as a result of our relocation to Philadelphia beginning in October of 2020.

He was very attentive to our specific buyer’s needs which included parking and multiple pets, which made the home search all that more challenging. He was a pleasure to work with, extremely patient, and an excellent communicator. He always responded promptly to calls and emails, and was an excellent intermediary with seller’s agents, HOA’s, and contractors. Thank you Marcus for your services in helping us find a home in Philadelphia!! We would highly recommend him to prospective clients.

Gabriel Sanchez-Aldana

Marcus is fantastic to work with.

Godly George

This team was absolutely wonderful to work with!

Guillermo and Marcus both helped us find our dream home. We were searching for a house in PA while still living in Chicago, so we anticipated we'd find ourselves in a difficult situation trying to buy from a long distance. However, Marcus & Guillermo made the entire process so easy for us, and helped us every step of the way. Their knowledge of the market was extremely helpful in helping us make the right decisions and we couldn't be happier. We will absolutely work with them again if we make another move down the road!

Zachary Zavalydriga

Positive: Professionalism Brittany lenchuk is absolutely the best!

This is our first time buying a house and she worked with us every step of the way! She is always prompt, she responds to every question very quick so you never have to have wait and the most important thing she puts your interests first.

matthew king

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value My experience is with Lay Gauv, he represented me as a buyer initially and became my agent as a seller at the end.

We placed Lay against many other realtors and realtor alternatives, such as the 'modern' styles of the online platforms honed into being all virtual essentially. With the low commission price and the same utilization of the online tools such as MLS, we had to really weigh out the pros and cons of the traditional vs the modern style in terms of saving money and ability to sell, especially during this pandemic in the city. In the end, it's hard to determine the "what if's," but the strategies and willingness attitude of Lay definitely strengthen our choice to choose him over others. He was able to suggest pricing at a good point and not need to drop so much, or none at all, resulting in more of a stronger contender with negotiation. He is also more stubborn than me, in a good way, to retain every dollar that I was easily willing to forgo to finalize the transaction and took his own personal time to make sure plan B, C, and D works before giving up. He's really responsive all time of the days, and I've tested this many, many times, and willing to help or provide opinion or connections that is even outside the field. Overall, to keep this short, I wouldn't hesitate to use him again and trust he would make the better decision for us or anyone. Not only will you find a great realtor, but most likely, you'll become friends with him and abuse his knowledge and networking. :)

Onsay L.

Marcus sold my condo really quickly and brought the buyer's offer way up to close the deal.

Closing went smoothly. I highly recommend his excellent services!

Alan Herbert

The professionalism goes above and beyond with this real-estate company.

Not only did Salas advice me in the realist-state market, but they also found me the perfect house that fit all the needs for my family while selling my first house in a timely matter at the asking price set. With their many years of experience and real-estate knowledge, It’s like bringing a power house to the closing table.

brian atkins

Lay Gauv did a fantastic job helping us buy our new house.

He was patient, knowledgeable and listened to what we wanted. He used these skills to guide us to our perfect home. He also has a lot of experience with investment homes and we can't wait to work with him again in that capacity. We know we'll be getting the best treatment!

Matt Keener

Marcus was extremely reliable, honest, knowledgeable, and trustworthy.

I would recommend him to anyone looking to seal the deal on selling or buying a house. He got me a great deal on my house.

Cody Heflin

My wife and I were very fortunate to work with Marcus for our move from Boston to Philadelphia.

Throughout the home buying process, Marcus was there every step of the way and helped my family settle in a great home and community. I never felt rushed or had too little information about homes or towns. He was more of a mentor helping my wife and I make make the best decision in a place we knew so little about. Marcus' professionalism, honesty, hard work, and knowledge are what makes him the best in this profession. I will only recommend Marcus to anyone that asks me for a realtor. He will always have my business.

Paul Haenke

I had a great experience working with the Salas Team.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness I worked with Lay Gav who helped me find a home in Delaware county in PA.

Luckily, it only took Lay on two different days of showings and I found the home that I put in an offer on. Lay was very helpful and responsive to what I wanted in a home. The process of house hunting took less than two months. Lay provided recommendations during the offer process that really helped with making informative decisions. We are in constant communication from the start and through the rest of the house buying process. I would highly recommend Lay and the Salas Team for your next home.

Marcus was able to streamline the purchase for us.

There weren't any delays in getting our paperwork filled out, or issues with scheduling the inspection. It was a very easy process with Marcus leading the way.

Marcus Shellenberger assisted us with our home search as a result of our relocation to Philadelphia beginning in October of 2020.

He was very attentive to our specific buyer’s needs which included parking and multiple pets, which made the home search all that more challenging. He was a pleasure to work with, extremely patient, and an excellent communicator. He always responded promptly to calls and emails, and was an excellent intermediary with seller’s agents, HOA’s, and contractors. Thank you Marcus for your services in helping us find a home in Philadelphia!! We would highly recommend him to prospective clients.

Very helpful made sale easy and reasonable very professional.

The sale was long distance and it was a pleasure not to have to run back-and-forth from Lebanon PA to Philadelphia

Howard Melnick

They really went above and beyond for us.

We had our house sold in 3 days for $12K over asking!! The process was smooth and everyone we spoke with was professional. I'd give 6 stars if I could!

Lay made us feel like family.

Not once during the process of home buying did Lay make this feel like a business transaction. He kept our best interest in mind at all times and even let us know when a potential purchase wasn't a good idea. His first focus was putting us in a home that we loved. Lay put in the hours that others wouldn't to get us both virtual and in-person tours at multiple properties. His relationship with lenders and insurance agents made the purchasing process completely seamless - we had everything we needed to close the deal ahead of schedule. I would normally stress over such a big event, but that wasn't the case at all. To top things off, he helped us beat 7 offers to land our dream home. I would give him 6 stars if I could.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value We had the pleasure of working with Brittany over the summer.

She helped us to search for a house for our son who was recently employed in Philadelphia. Brittany performed a careful Search based on our son’s price range and other requests. She was always open and honest when discussing the pros and cons and very patient as we considered various options. She is very knowledgeable about various properties and neighborhoods in the Philadelphia region. Besides being extremely pleasant and gracious, we were always impressed by the fact that she made herself accessible anytime of the day and returned messages instantly. Not only did her office supported us in switching over utilities, at the end, her office surprised us with a gift of a personalized frame for the new home. Every time we visit the new house, we will without a doubt remember Brittany. Brittany's performance was superb and we recommend her wholeheartedly.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Marcus Shellenberger was a fantastic partner in our home sale adventure.

His calm demeanor, professionalism, expertise and responsiveness helped remove much of the stress of the process. His sales strategy was spot on -- we sold the house in just two days! Way to go, Marcus!

Marcus was nothing short of professional.

Very good with getting an understanding of what I was looking for and helped educate me on a lot of things I did not understand or know. Highly recommend him and his team to anyone searching.

Guillermo Salas is the only Realtor that I would recommend to family and friends.

He is trustworthy and attentive and went to extra lengths to accommodate our needs. We were looking to upgrade from a starter home and were interested in specific types of homes in a few select pockets of our neighborhood. Guillermo provided us an extensive view of the market offerings in our area, as well as valuable data that helped in our negotiations. He made an inherently stressful process profoundly easier. We couldn’t be happier with our new home and are grateful to Guillermo and his team for their kindness, care, and professionalism.

Marcus is an extremely talented professional who responds very promptly, is super knowledgeable, and has a wealth of experience in the real estate industry.

Marcus and team outlined everything we needed to know to have a successful transaction. The team provides their clients with a robust marketing campaign, respectable photographer, and stress-free itinerary to know exactly what to expect. We couldn’t have had a better agent or experience. Thank you Marcus and team!

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness I have been working with Yadi Toledo to sell some properties owned by our company.

Yadi has been proactive, professional and very responsive. Thanks to her efforts, the process has moved quickly and we have had some great success. She is thoughtful about the best ways to position our properties for sale and very thorough as we review our options. I know that our business is in good hands with Yadi and look forward to continuing working together.

I have bought two homes with the Salas team in the past, my first primary and my second primary in Manayunk and Graduate Hospital sections of Philadelphia.

Both experiences were excellent, I was informed the entire way and it was a great experience. I highly suggest using them if you are looking to buy or sell.

Kevin Luchko

Marcus was extremely helpful in my search for a home in Philadelphia!

I am new to the area, moving here from Florida, and I knew very little about the city. Marcus not only provided me a list properties meeting the narrow criteria I was looking for; but, he also dedicated his weekend to showing me those that I was most interested in. He was a wealth of knowledge about the history of the city, things to do, and places to visit. He was instrumental in the negotiations of my lease. I would highly recommend Marcus to any of my friends and family and will certainly be contacting him when I am ready to purchase a home here in Philly.

Jaime Haskin

Marcus Shellenberger went above and behind to help me find a dream house for my wife and future child.

I could not recommend him and the salas team more. Cheers!

Robert Drewicz

I used the Salas Team to sell my condo in Philadelphia.

They handled everything from day one. Found multiple potential buyers and negotiated the best deal for the sale. I was totally impressed and thankful for the work they did. Definitely using them again.

Peter Rosenzweig

Thank you for all of your hard work getting this across the finish line.

This is the third house we sold through the Salas Team. The last two we turned the money back into Philadelphia real estate. This time we plan to bank the proceeds. If we do, someday in the distant future, decide to buy a Philadelphia pied-a-terre, we know who to call.

John Boxer

I would highly recommend Marcus to anyone who is looking to sell and/or buy a home!

Marcus was exceptionally knowledgeable, professional, thorough, accessible, and patient with us over the last 8 months as he assisted us with buying and selling a home. He was proactive and hands-on, but he also listened to us and was responsive to our needs. His style strikes the perfect balance! We also really appreciated the amount of time, thought, and effort he put into reviewing the comps with us to ensure that we were armed with as much information as possible.

Kristen Harberg

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness Lay was my agent and he is one of the best.

I appreciate his quick response to my inquiry for information and he is very knowledgeable in his field. Thank you and I highly recommend him.

Poiveng Suon

We knew little about finding a home but Marcus and his team made it so simple for us.

He explained everything and made us feel comfortable throughout the entire process. He could tell when I was feeling stressed so he always provided words of encouragement. He is extremely knowledgeable and committed to making the experience as pleasant as possible. He is very dedicated to his clients and has their best interest at heart. I have recommended Marcus and his team to many of my friends who feel the same way. Working with Marcus was one the smartest decisions we've made.

Karen Flastek

We are currently in the process of buying a house and Marcus and his team have been nothing but helpful!

Marcus clearly explained the process to us and has been very helpful in answering all of our questions. We are happy to be working with such a great realtor!
