There are so many things I could say about Marcela. All of them awesome. I have worked with her on many community projects over the years and she can be described in one ever-present way. She is a bulldog for making the end product successful. When others might cut their losses at an early state, or when the results may be good-enough, Marcela presses forward till the project becomes what she way in the initial agreement/vision.
She is a real-person when she talks to you and has no slick-willy used care salesmen in her. Working with Marcela is kinda like finding and auto repair person that you can trust to only fix what's needed, but who will double check to find things that can hurt you in the future.
Needless to say, I like every encounter I have ever had involving Marcela. Trusted person in my opinion.
Marcela is an exceptional agent who has a heart for her clients' best interests. She is also the "Angie's List" of agents!! If you need anything... and I mean anything... she "knows a guy" who can help. She will do whatever is needed to help and complete the sale.
Mr Rich Szerman has the biggest heart lots of patients .
Real Estate he knows it in and out . He loves helping people when they have no where to turn he makes good things happen . We have a great office we are a family working for our clients.

I highly recommend Marcela to anyone that wants the very best Realtor around. She's the hardest working woman I know. She will take care of you like your family. She wants you to be completely happy and will do whatever it takes to get you what you want. I've known her for many years and she's amazing. Although I didn't need a new home, Marcela helped me get the best price and quality items to remodel and improve my home. This woman is a mover and shaker. She gets things done and endears herself to everyone along the way. When you have Marcela on your side, anything is possible. She's simply the best.
I am really sorry for this late review. When you told me that Aanas mentioned about his review, I really felt bad. I had received his automatic email and I just wrote few lines for his review which was quick. But I wanted to take some time to give your review since you are special 😬. Here is your review.....
We met Marcela during an open house in Stevenson Ranch. At that time, we didn't had any realtor and we were simply checking out what was available in the market. When we first met Marcela, it was her charisma and attentive approach which quickly got our attention. After discussing few details about house search, we decided to make Marcela our realtor. As a first time home buyer, I was being really careful on selecting a right realtor and it could not have been any better when we met Marcela. House hunting and buying process could be really scary but Marcela made it a lot smoother for us.
Marcela was always available for us at any time and would answer any and all the questions we had. She took her time to explain each step in detail as we move forward and guided us to find our first sweet home. It took only around a month to find our house - thanks to Marcela's dedication and, quick and careful decision making mind.
I would highly recommend Marcela as a realtor for home buying and even selling, and I would not think twice if I plan on buying another house. She is hard working, very communicative, smart and above all a nice human being. Me and my family have made a special relationship with Marcela in a short period of time but I am sure this relationship will last forever. Thank you Marcela! You are the best!!!
Hope this review will be good enough for you, Marcela. Please let me know if you want me to add more or change anything.
Thank you again for all your help and I am really sorry for being late for this review.
Enjoy your weekend!

Marcela Kocen is a wonderful realtor. She has the perfect combination of experience and caring. Marcela knows everyone in the area and can recommend professionals in SCV to help you with anything. She helped my parents find the perfect home and it was out of area! I can't wait to use her again for my real estate needs.

As a parent, you always hope that your child (adult) will be influenced in life by people with character, ethics and Professional integrity in hopes to reinforce how important those are. I am very happy to say that my Daughter found one of those People in Marcella Koen. Marcella was a Mom’s dream come true cause she was that person who made it possible for my Daughter to get into her first home, with Professional and caring guidance. Marcella walked her thru The experience as if she were guiding her own daughter. She Made sure to show her properties that were safe, in her price range so she would be over extend her budget. Thx to Marcella, my Daughter was able to get into her first home with little anxiety and stress, which being her Mom, I am so thankful for.
I am writing to give Marcela Kocen my highest recommendation. Marcela possesses all the attributes of an excellent realtor.
I had the privilege of working with Marcela when looking to purchase a home. She clearly takes pride in doing a good job. In my particular case as a buyer of a home, there were many rough spots on the road to closing and in every instance Marcela was a great help. Her knowledge about real estate is multi-faceted and she is most certainly able to do more than the average agent. She knows her market extremely well; she is diligent, responsive, and yet very patient with her clients. Marcela is both very professional and personable. I appreciated her ability to advise us about home inspection and connecting us with financing, she was there to help and support me in every possible way possible. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Marcela to any person who is looking to buy or sell a home, as well as seek her service in any of my future real estate transactions.

Marcela was agreat realtor to work with. She has an amazing work ethic and did more to sell our house than other realtors usually do. You won’t be disappointed
Marcella is an amazing woman who stands by what she says…. I kept coming up empty-handed with several different realtors who kept telling me this and that but didn’t follow through. I was discouraged I was getting angry because none of them could seem to get me into the home that I wanted to get into . After several offers and denials I was at my wit’s end. Then I ran into Marcella and met her one day and told her my situation and immediately she told me not to worry ” I’m going to get you into your dream home!”. The very next day I called her and she had already lined up 4 houses for us to look at. That was the problem with the other Realtors I was the one lining up the homes to look at but Marcella is so professional she had everything lined up and ready to go look at. From the 4 homes I chose the home I liked the most, skeptical that she would be able to pull through we put an offer in that day and the very next day the offer was accepted. Within a matter of 15 days we were already through escrow and moving into our new home I was in shock and disbelief. Marcella is a no game playing woman who means business whose professionalism and enthusiasm are infectious. Marcella who is a wonderful loving caring person who makes you feel like you are the most important person when doing business with her makes you feel as though there are no other clients more important then you. She truly is the real deal. I have been lucky to cross paths with her and have gained a new friend. Marcella is one of a kind. Make her your realtor for your next home search….. Thanks so much again for your great work
Marcela helped my fiancée and I find our dream home. She was right there with us every step of the way guiding us in the right direction. It was clear that she was very devoted to us, her clients, and her work. Marcela was very personable and made us feel comfortable. She wasn’t afraid to make bold moves which is probably the reason why we had such an easy time finding our home. She was a pleasure to work with and helped us tremendously. I also feel that I have gained a wonderful friend.
We can’t thank you enough Marcela!
Marcela is a blast to work with! She’s a real go-getter who keeps the excitement up from beginning to end. She’s very personably and knows how to schmooze with the 3rd parties involved to make sure you’re getting the best possible deal- as if she was buying the home herself. She’s consistent, trust worthy, persistent and patient; and reads your likes and dislikes very well!-excellent qualities all Realtors should have. If she can’t find your dream home, no one can!
I’d certainly recommend Marcela for those of you who are looking for a good time in the stressful process of purchasing a home, just sit back and enjoy the ride!
Helped me buy a home
Marcela was great to work with through the home buying process. If we had any other realtor we would never have gotten our home for the great price we did. She made it happen and was on the ball the whole time!
Working with Marcela was nothing less than exceptional! She’s a hard worker and prides herself on providing quality service when she’s helping you find the perfect home. She’s now not only my realtor, but more like family. We became real acquainted during the house hunting process and she learned how important it was for me to find the perfect home for my son and I. I want to thank you Marcela for your exceptional quality of service. You knew how important purchasing my first home meant for me and not once did you fail me. It’s been two months since I’ve made my new house a home and I’m thankful that I had Marcela coaching me every step of the way. You’re the best!
Marcela Kocen is our favorite realtor! She’s VERY personable and outgoing and will do what it takes to help you get what you desire. She worked with us for over a year to help us find out dream home in Castaic. During the home hunting process she’s always on the lookout for things that may be to our taste… we looked through a LOT and she was there every step of the way and always making sure she protected our best interests. Marcela knows a lot of people in SCV so she’s also great resource even after the purchase. We’ve stayed in touch as friends and DEFINITELY recommend her to any of our friends looking to buy or sell a home.
“When the job needs to be done, the search becomes easy with Marcela. A real go-getter, working hard to get you the best option”.
Marcela Slavik is a breath of fresh air! She helped us do the nearly impossible.
Me and my wife met Marcela at an open house in Castaic. We had just come from the Antelope Valley where we were looking at homes with a different Realtor. We were so deflated. We had 45 days to move from our long term rental and this Realtor was showing us Home’s that were unacceptable. She said that’s what we could afford so get used to it. Then we met Marcela. She was so upbeat and full of energy. She said that she could help us! And she did!! She put us in touch with a lender and helped us with looking for home’s. She worked early and late! She wouldn’t rest until we found a home! And we did! We are so thankful for her work ethic and attitude. She was with us from beginning to end! Taking care of the details.
We now live in the home of our dreams and have a Realtor and friend for life!! Thank you again Marcela! We are so happy in our home and we owe it to you for helping us along!

For these two first-time homebuyers, Marcela was an absolute godsend. While nearly everyone we’d spoken to had horror stories to tell regarding their first home purchase, we won’t have any such stories of our own. Marcela and her team made every step of the process a breeze, from finding a property before it was listed all the way to securing financing and closing. She was able to minimize the inevitable surprises along the way and she’s such a wonderful person that she’ll be a welcome part of our lives as we grow into our new home.
It is hard enough to move around the corner much less across the country, but because of your expertise and contacts in the Real Estate industry, we drove away with our house sold and in good hands.
Thank you for your hard work and service.
When I decided to sell my family's home of 17 years in Northlake, I knew exactly who to call. I called Marcela Slavik Kocen and she went right to work. I knew that Marcela has the knowledge, experience, expertise and connections I needed to get the right buyer.
Marcela used all of those qualities and more when she sold the house to the second family who viewed it. And that was two days after listing the house. And, she got $15,000 over my asking price. But that was just the beginning.
Marcela was with us every step of the way, helping us understand all of the paperwork and using her connections to get inspections, repairs and so much more taken care of. If I ever felt overwhelmed at any time, all I had to do was pick up the phone and call Marcela. She took care of anything I needed until the very end, even coming to the house several times to help with moving, trash removal and whatever else was needed. She always went above and beyond to make sure the process went smoothly, which it did. We closed escrow in 30 days and couldn't be more pleased.
If you are looking for a realtor who will do the same for you, I recommend Marcela Slavik Kocen with ALTA Realty Group in the highest possible terms
I met Marcela when she was volunteering with the Castaic School District. When we decided to sell our home, we spoke with Marcela, who told us she had prospective buyers interested in our property. We were able to sell our home after one showing, with the couple Marcela had found. As a Detective, I value integrity and hard work above all else in professional relationships. Marcela was completely honest and up front with us. She worked to find solutions to challenges in the sale process and we closed our deal precisely when we had wanted to, perfectly corresponding to our new home purchase. I am very grateful for the exceptional work she performed on our behalf.
Thank You Marcela
There is nothing bad I can say about this remarkable woman. She continues to surprise me with her great service and quality work. Marcela worked diligently to find me the perfect home for my parents and I. She made sure it had what we needed and at our price range and was not afraid to go out of the ordinary. She also made sure that we got our offer in as soon as possible when we found the perfect one! Working out of her hotel room on vacation to make it happen was incredible. I plan to buy a second home in the future and you can bet Marcela will be the one to find me the perfect one. You're awesome Marcela !
Having my first experience of purchasing a home was a real eye opener. I learned how important it is to have a representative you can trust and rely on to help you navigate through the buying process. Marcela's experience and knowledge is only matched by her enthusiasm. I was so thankful to have Marcela as my realtor as she was a guiding light offering gentle coaching with common sense experience when searching for a home that would, not only fit my budget but would give me a place I would be happy in and in the best location suited for me. Marcela is a pleasure to work with and I'm happy to call her not only a trusted realtor but also my trusted friend!
We learned about Marcela from a Handyman who did some work for us. He
recommended Marcela to sell our home for us and we are sooooo happy
we hired her. Marcela goes above and beyond and does whatever is needed
to complete the sale with a positive, upbeat and fun attitude. We highly
recommend her to anyone who needs a realtor. Thanks Marcela!!!
I wanted to take a moment and thank you for all your help on the sale of my home.
I would highly recommend Marcela Slavik
Kocen as very professional realtor. When I met Marcela
through a neighbor whom she had previously sold their home,
I let her know up front that this sell would be a challenge
as their were two additional sellers involved. Marcela was
extremely professional with all involved and sold the home
within two weeks on the market. I would highly recommend her
for any future purchases and sales that you may have. I will
certainly use her in the future.
