A Real Estate Partnership

We recognize that purchasing or selling a home is the single largest investment our clients will make in their lives. Therefore, it is extremely important to be represented by an agent with integrity as well as the expertise to negotiate on your behalf.

If you are a buyer, as your agent, we will guide you through the entire process from putting you in contact with a responsible lender, helping you verify the value of the property you are considering, and making the appropriate inspections so you do not end up with hidden surprises.

As a seller, we oversee preparing your home for the market. This process includes eliminating excess furnishings and belongings, hiring and/or recommending appropriate contractors, painters, handymen, etc. For the most part, we do our own staging and play an active role with our professional photographer to present your property in it's best light.

We provide you with accurate and honest information so that you can make an informed decision. Our days are filled with previewing properties, studying the market, and networking with other agents so we can do the best job for you. Buying or Selling our knowledge can be your greatest asset.

Our successful partnership began in 1991 when Nicolette joined Marlene at Rodman and Company Real Estate. We have witnessed the evolution of the modern real estate transaction first hand. Since the early days of Rodman and Company, we have built our business on experience, integrity, and results.  We are very proud that most of our business comes from former clients and referrals.

When Sereno Group opened its doors in 2006 we were drawn to the idea of a company with a focus on dedicated, experienced top-producing Real Estate professionals. Since joining this group, we have been an integral part of its success utilizing an unprecedented knowledge of the local market and community.

Marlene is a 40 year resident of Los Gatos and in 1985 purchased one of the most unique and historic properties in town, the Florentine Village on Central Ave. She and her husband Roy Marshall reside on the property and enjoy preserving the history of this special part of Los Gatos. Nicolette and her husband, Kevin, grew up in Los Gatos and are raising their children, Brenden and Amber here. They are very involved in the local schools and their children’s sports.
