Marlene Hassel and Manny Stellino

Marlene was one of the first people we met in Newport Beach 20 years ago when we engaged her to assist in house hunting. We successfully found a home and she was instrumental in closing on the deal. Now fast forward 20 years when we asked Marlene to sell the wonderful home we bought through her. She, as we already knew, was fantastic in setting up the house for sale and then selling it within 7 days while others languished on the market. If you engage Marlene you should remember that when she tells you what needs to be done don't ask any questions just do it because she is always correct in her judgments. She is the consummate professional and we can't say enough platitudes about her and the services she performed.

“I have completed a number of transactions with Manny Stellino over the course of the last fifteen plus years. In each situation, whether we completed the deal or not, on the buy-side or the sell-side, I have found Manny to be knowledgeable, patient, and extremely honest. His guidance has been very appreciated, and together with his partner Marlene Hassel, each experience has proven to be rewarding on many fronts. I would highly recommend the Stellino/Hassel Team if you are considering a real estate transaction, and I will definitely use them in the future.”

Dan Stauber

“Marlene is a wonderful realtor. She has represented us in buying or selling four houses over the past 15 years. I have recommended her to friends looking for homes in the Newport Beach area. She knows the area very well and has a lot of connections which helps her know what houses will be coming on the market before other realtors do.”

“I have had the opportunity to work with Manny for the sale and purchase of several pieces of property and I found him to be honest, maintain the highest level of integrity, and always willing to work with my expectations and for my benefit.”

“Manny is perhaps the best realtor I have ever known. He’s bright, extremely talented inall aspects of his craft and so trustworthy and has an extremely excellent work ethic. I will always recommend Manny to any friends and family and use him myself when the time comes for another house or sale of present house. He is a gem.”

What I found is a very skilled real estate professional with an in depth knowledge of the market, an infinite amount of patience, and you listened to me. I appreciate that you guided without pushing and were not afraid to tell me what you think, as well as keeping in communication at all times and quickly responding to any and all questions however trivial.

I would be proud to recommend you to any friends or business associates.”
