Dear Marshall,

We want to thank you for selling our office and take this opportunity to tell you how much we appreciate you. We are so fortunate that you have represented us for all these years. (Through thick and thin)!

Julie’s mother Pat, had known you since you were in High School and she thought the world of you. We have continued our relationship with you and have also come to realize how very special you are.

You stand out as distinct from others because of your integrity, trustworthiness and reliability. You have a positive psychological energy and good nature that radiates kindness.

So we also think the world of you Marshall.

Our new mantra will be:

Marshall Mello is our man and Sterling Properties is the plan

Take good care,

Julie and Eric

Marshall Mello of Sterling California Properties has been a blessing in our lives. We met him in the year of 2012 and he has since done several real estate transactions for us,  helping us both buy and sell properties. Long after he sold us our home he was always accessible to show us how the function of the home worked.  He has been available to us from answering  a silly question to fixing our garage door. We had a flood when we were out of town and Marshall was on the case within hours. He resolved the situation for us so we were able to continue our vacation without worry. Marshall and his wife Amy are considered a part of our family now and will always take care of all of our real estate needs going forward. His integrity and caring after the sale of a house seems to go

I’ve known Marshall for 7 years now. I used him to purchase my previous house, I asked for his advice a few times during the time I owned that home and have referred several of my friends to him. All of which were extremely satisfied. I hired Marshall recently to help me sell my home. He treats me like family and goes above and beyond what I’ve asked for. After 20 years of experience he has an unbelievable ability to catch small details without losing site of the whole picture. Furthermore, buying or selling a home can be extremely stressful. Marshall is calm and collected and works well under pressure. He listens to his clients to get a firm understanding of their needs and is able to provide excellent solutions. He works hard to make sure his clients are satisfied. He is without a doubt one of the best realtors I’ve had the pleasure of working with. I can confidently say Marshall is a realtor I trust and highly recommend to anyone.

Marshall is an extremely accurate adviser when it comes to selling a home. All agents can say they know the area and provide notifications of the latest updated listings but, beyond that, it is hard to know what you can expect from them. Marshall is one of the top agents in Sonoma County because he sets realistic expectations going into negotiations, provides guidance on exactly what should be done to meet those expectations, and most importantly – he does exactly what he says. Marshall is not an agent trying to get his name on a sign, we did not post one or want an open house advertised – he respected everything we wanted and delivered flawlessly under extremely tight timelines. Marshall is a great, honest person who happens to be an amazing real estate agent. His integrity is unparalleled.

Joe Tembrock

Marshall and his team are amazing! He helped navigate my wife and I through one of the craziest real estate markets we have ever seen in our area. His confident but calm demeanor was exactly what we needed. His real estate knowledge is second to none, and we highly recommend Sterling/Marshall to everyone!

Ryan and Nikka Decker

Marshall Mello represented the sale of our home in Larkfield. The home burned down just before closing. However, we will rebuild and I will choose Marshall to represent me. Without question, he is the best. He not only is extremely responsive, knowledgeable, and very hands on to everything, a great negotiator, he is also a very kind and good person. I would trust no one else to represent my home.

Nels Struve

Marshall was a pleasure to work with while selling our home. He was available whenever needed, new how to negotiate well and got us over asking price for our home. We would use Marshall again to sell or buy a home!

Kenneth Sebastiani

Marshall was very helpful in all aspects, since this was our first experience in selling a home. He always returned calls promptly and had great recommendations for what we should do to the property. We will definitely call on Marshall again when we go to sell another property.

D. Lawson

Aside from having an amazing name, Marshall is just plain amazing. He led me every step of the way and answered any and all (and abstract) questions I had. He’s a very knowledgeable guy and knows the bay area well. He accommodated me in every way possible before, during and AFTER my home purchase. To this day he still helps me out with real estate questions. I’m searching for another house in a different state and sometimes I wish I could just fly him out to work with me. I recommend Marshall without a second thought.
Anthony Scarlata

Marshall is amazing!!! His knowledge and expertise made us feel extremely comfortable throughout the process. He and his office worked endlessly answering questions, giving guidance and reassurance. He listed and sold our house along with a purchase of a new home. He worked with us and for us…our needs, our time line. We can’t say enough about him and his character. Great experience!

Joe & Denise Bell

My family and I had a great experience with Marshall. He is very professional and a master at his trade. He fights hard for his clients best interest and will do whatever it takes to make sure they are taken care of. He actually helped us with selling our home and purchasing a new home and everything on his part was a smooth as could be. I would absolutely recommend him to anybody that is in the market for buying or selling a home.
Brenten Sorensen

Marshall is professional, very courteous and knows the process for a seamless transaction. I have never sold a house before and he walked us through the process without a hiccup.

Bob & Renae Smith

We used Marshall to sell our property in Sonoma Co. it was a very unique large acreage property with more than its share of potential challenges. Marshall was very knowledgeable in regards to the market and how to advertise a property such as ours, we had multiple offers in a short period of time and were able to close early. It was a pleasure to work with Marshall and I would absolutely use him in the future.


Marshall Mello has sold several homes for us over the years and also helped us purchase many homes. He is a the most dedicated, sincere, thoughtful and professional realtor we have known. Marshall has the highest ethical standards of integrity and honesty, and will go beyond the call of duty. He is outstanding in his field and we strongly recommend him.

Eric Van Schoor

Marshall went beyond all expectations to find me a beautiful home, and also in selling my previous home. I have every confidence in him. He really cares about you and your needs.

S. Miller

We enjoyed working with Marshall during our purchase, that we asked him to represent us for the sale! “Hard-working” is not enough to describe this agent’s performance. During our search for a home, he went above and beyond to ensure that we found the right one for us, and was diligent in explanations of process so we never felt left in the dark. You cannot go wrong when choosing Marshall as your agent for listing or buying!!
