Testimonials for Marc Iafrate, MBA
The McMahon Family, Raleigh, NC09/30/2013
"We were very pleased with Marc Iafrate and his service. He was fantastic! A complete 180 from the previous agent we had in moving to the Raleigh area. We sold and bought using Marc on both ends and were very happy with the outcomes.
He had multiple outlets of advertising to get our house sold in just a short amount of time without pressuring us to lower our price or give back too much. As for selling, Marc had a tremendous amount of input on every home that we saw or prepped to see. He was very thorough in weeding out any potential problems with homes we thought might meet our criteria. Even though we saw a lot of homes, it could have been a lot more! He took his time with us at each and every property we saw. Not once did we ever feel like we were being pushed into putting down a contract or pushed out of a home we saw. He was even great with our three small children in letting them open the home locks and doors at each property.
One really great side note is that we could tell Marc works for himself and doesn’t have a “team” of people working with him (or against him in some cases we’ve found with other agents). He worked around the clock getting us into our new home. Sometimes calls and contracts would come in late just showing he was focused on helping us after the normal hours. He even placed offers and contracts during his vacation. Marc was fully engaged on just us! We couldn’t be happier with our new home and choosing Marc as our agent. Call us anytime for a reference on Marc!"

“Marc, I saw the article in the News and Observer this morning and wanted to congratulate you.
I can't think of anyone more deserving of this award than you. John and I are so fortunate that we were referred to you as our realtor. Your patience is admirable! I truly know that you have earned this award and all the other awards you have received. My Very Best To You!"
The Ridout Family, Raleigh, NC02/01/2013
“Marc, we really appreciate everything you have done for us! I can't wait until we can send business your way and hear all about how professional and amazing you were!! “
The Williams Family, Wake Forest, NC11/06/2012
“When starting the relocation process we didn’t know much about the area. With that being said, we turned and relied heavily on Marc Iafrate for guidance and he did not disappoint. Relocating has to be one of the most stressful situations a family can go through. That is why it’s so important to have a true professional like Marc in your corner. Through Marc’s incredible expertise and attention to detail, he was able to make our relocation as stress free as possible. It was apparent right away that Marc wasn’t interested in making a quick sale. Marc wanted to make sure that all of our family’s needs and expectations were met. It was through Marc’s ability to really listen to our needs and ask the right questions prior to us visiting, that we able to make every minute count on each trip to the area. Marc Iafrate is a man of great character and integrity who takes the needs of clients and the role of his firm very serious. He always went above and beyond for our family and for that we are extremely grateful!”
The Blaustein Family, Wake Forest, NC10/03/2012
“Marc Iafrate, was indispensable in making my relocation to the Raleigh area, (Wake Forest, specifically), smoother and easier than I thought possible. Relocating from out of state has its challenges, as I am sure you know, but Marc was there for my wife and me every step of the way. The result was closing on a house we love in a wonderful neighborhood with Marc handling whatever bumps in the road appeared which relieved us of the stresses that could easily have developed. Marc is a relocation specialist that fully embraces and delivers the perfect client experience.”
The Wu Family, Raleigh, NC03/02/2012
“I got to know Marc through internet searching. Marc helped us a lot before we land in RTP without even meeting us face to face. We finished intensive yet pleasant showing schedule in three days followed by two days offer and negotiation process... with Marc's great help ,within a week we completed what we have planned for two weeks house hunting task. Overall, Marc helped us a lot in finding the right house for our family in RTP area. Marc was very professional and flexible throughout the entire process.. highly recommended!”
The Sikorski Family, Cary, NC02/01/2012
“Marc recently helped us during a house-hunting trip prior to our planned relocation from northern Michigan to the Cary, NC area. We felt that Marc went above-and-beyond the call of duty in working with us. He was well-prepared, on-time and very responsive to our needs. And, through it all, he was a pleasure to be with - we even had fun. We cannot say enough good things about Marc and highly recommend him to anyone who is considering a move to, or within, the greater Raleigh-area.”
The Hoyte Family, Raleigh, NC12/01/2011
“I have known Marc professionally for some time and I have been consistently impressed by the way he sets himself apart in a competitive industry. Marc has an unparalleled understanding of internet marketing and leveraging social media and is always patient, polite and personable. With all this in mind, I trusted Marc to help my parents list their property. They were amazed by the amount of time he invested in answering their questions and making sure they understood the listing process and the local market. I recommend Marc without hesitation to anyone buying or selling a home in the Triangle.”
The Romero Family, Angier, NC09/01/2011
“As Abi and I sit here in our living room, we think of everything we have been through with you, and its funny to go back and think how getting our home took around a year! Although it may not seem like it during the process, time sure does fly by quickly.
We think about how you were there for us when every little obstacle came across us, and we are so greatly thankful and lucky to have found you. More than a realtor, you have become a friend to us, and that's very important to both of us. We really appreciate and thank you for your patience, and for the support to keep on moving when we didn't have the strength to anymore. We had a difficult time getting approved and we came so close to giving up, but with your guidance, we held through and here we are now, in our nice big home.
Both you and Linda made it all possible for us to own our very own home, and not just any home, a home we never expected to get! We owe you so much, as I know you spent numerous hours, days, and weeks working hard to get us what we wanted. You always went out of your way, and always went that extra mile for us.
When we came across you, we always thought you would just help us find a home, and that was it, but wow, we never imagined you would do so much more than that. I honestly think we would have been so lost, and made so many wrong decisions if it wasn't for you.
We will definitely keep you in our minds, and we hope not to lose touch with you. We will be recommending you every chance we get, and make sure that people know that when it comes to finding a home, you're the one to go to!
Thanks again Marc for everything!!!!!!”
