Turn it up to 11 stars!

Mareijke is one of the most loveliest people I’ve ever worked with. She gives 1000% in everything she’s helping you with.

She really takes the stress away and does everything she can to make you mentally, financially and emotionally prepared. She’s honest, empathetic, and always there for you.

She made our dream we didn’t even know we had come true!

Mareijke and the whole team were so instrumental in getting our first dream house

Mareijke and the whole team at Arneson Group was so instrumental in getting our first dream house in California that it can’t be expressed in words. Right from our first meeting few months back to finally closing the house last week. Mareijke understands the pulse of the real estate market in the Bay area and accordingly was able to advise us throughout the process starting from setting the overall expectations, making real time adjustments, separating the emotions with reality of the market and offering creative solutions, including lending options. We really liked her energy, positive attitude, attention to detail and overall agility in adjusting the search criteria specific to our requirements. We could not have asked for a better realtor and deal in this market and we definitely couldn’t have found our house without her. Mareijke went over and beyond significantly exceeding our expectations in every aspect. Hope to work with you soon in the near future!!! Sachin Jain & Madhu Agarwal

Mareijke was truly amazing to work with in all aspects of the home buying process

Mareijke was truly amazing to work with in all aspects of the home buying process. Buying a home has been a dream of mine and my plan was to do so in the next couple of years. Mareijke over delivered and helped me find my perfect first home ahead of schedule, July 2021. I am a first-time home buyer, and my biggest fear was ensuring I would be financially sound. Mareijke provided me with two potential scenarios that fit what I was looking for. She broke out all the associated costs line by line. Her financial modeling gave me peace of mind, but what I appreciated most was the advice she gave me. She said, “Just because the loan company says you can spend up to XY and Z amount, doesn’t mean you need to spend that much.” I loved that she said this early on because I knew she truly cared about me feeling confident in my choices. I felt empowered and well informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend reaching out to Mareijke and her team if you have any questions about home buying in the East Bay.

~Mikaela

Could not have asked for a better experience

My partner and I were first time home buyers and Mareijke was everything we could have asked for and more. She was knowledgeable in every single way. She took the time to understand what we wanted, gave us strategies that would better our chances of getting the home we want in this tough market. She was responsive and always one step ahead of things. We worked with another agent prior for a few months but we would not have gotten our home so fast if it wasn’t for her. We would definitely recommend!

5 stars? Try like 10,005 stars!

5 stars? Try like 10,005 stars! Mareijke is by far an outlier in her profession. Her master-level understanding of the market and the people searching for their new homes is astonishing. She always made herself available to reach, and had the patience to answer all 589 of our questions as we embarked on our sell/purchase journey together. She was our rock throughout the process, keeping us calm and collective as we made some very difficult decisions. It was easy to trust her and openly communicate our feelings, concerns, hopes and ambitions to her. She knew us better than we knew ourselves! Selling and purchasing a house in the Bay Area can seem like an insurmountable task to accomplish, yet Mareijke made it feel like we could overcome anything. We knew we were in the best possible hands every step of the way. Mareijke not only helped us sell and purchase a home, but unbeknownst to her, she also taught us valuable lessons and skills that we both hope to apply to our personal lives and professional careers. We will forever be grateful for the experience we had with her. MVP, MVP, MVP!!!

Best experience ever with a realtor!

Knowledgeable,caring,efficient, totally on top of EVERTHING!

I highly recommend Mareijke for any real estate needs

I highly recommend Mareijke for any real estate needs. As a first time home buyer, i didnt know the in and outs of home buying. I was too confused, scared and hesitant but my agent took great lengths to make sure i was taken care of and i avoid any issues. Before i found her, i was paired up with another agent from another company whose interest was to get me to overbid on something i wasn’t comfortable with and bombarded me with info that was too advanced for my small real estate knowledge. Mareijke explained every important detail in language that i could easily understand and even found an important info that had helped me in the end. I found and got the property i wanted all thanks to her. She’s detailed oriented, concerned and looks after her clients. Thank you!!

~Stephanie

Mareijke is the best realtor I’ve ever worked with!

Mareijke is an amazing realtor. She’s thorough, detail oriented and has amazing follow through. She really held my hand to make sure the closing went smoothly, and it was seamless with her assistance. I would recommend her to anyone who wants a top notch realtor.

~Leslie

Best ally we could have hoped for!

After looking around for almost 2 years, we engaged Mareijke March of this year, and she helped us close a house purchase in July. In the process, she was an excellent communicator, knowledgeable, really took the time and effort to get to know our needs, as well as helped us focus. She was also very efficient and frank, which are traits we appreciate. We really felt like she had our back the whole time. We will work with Mareijke again in a heartbeat!

Fantastic agent. She had extensive knowledge of the market and priced our home to sell!

I could not have asked for more from an agent. She was responsive and reliable. Most important she made things happen and got our home to sell. I can’t recommend Mareijke enough!!!

Detail oriented and savvy

Mareijke was wonderful for us as first-time sellers. She has a great sense for the market. She was very clear in communicating the relative pluses and minuses of market timing, buyer’s psychology, etc. Mareijke created spread sheets for make-ready and closing costs that were helpful in analyzing what to do when. She helped us come up with a strategy for fielding offers. In the end, Mareijke secured us an offer early that met our goals and the sales went off without a hitch. I would hire her again. No problem.

~Steve

Such a great team!

Such a great team! Incredibly helpful in finding properties, walking us through options and sorting out the best fit for our needs. Excellent partners in navigating offers and transactions, and very effective in competitive markets. And they are nice! Would highly recommend and would definitely use again.

Fun, Personable, Responsive, Knowledgeable, Gift to First Time Home Buyers

Mareijke is a gift for First Time Home buyers. If you were a First Time Home Buyer you know that the process can be daunting and stressful. I realized quickly that even though you spent countless hours researching, it helps to know the steps of the process, but you need that knowledgeable, fantastic realtor to guide you and sometimes talk you out of the notion of buying that first fixer upper you toured, because you are now the “Weekend general contractor”. Mareijke was that realtor and will continue to be if we decide to go through this process of buying again or selling the current home. I would not hesitate to recommend Mareijke to anyone. The bonus is that Mareijke is a CPA, so her knowledge of the Financial Institutions’ mortgage rates and terms were invaluable to us.

Working with Mareijke Weidemann was such a breeze

Working with Mareijke Weidemann was such a breeze. I love the way she operates. She knows when to step in and guide, and when to active listen and be lead. She has a great support system built on trust that she offered to me. Our experience was such an amazing experience and she is one of very few people I was quickly able to trust. I love this woman! She has a great personality and an open mind. I honestly loved everything about the home buying experience just because of her. I’ve attached Marejike’s pic the week we celebrated Diwali together at my new home. Even though she came into my life a relator, I see us continuing this relationship going forward as friendship.

My wife and I loved working with Mareijke to purchase our first home in Oakland!

My wife and I loved working with Mareijke to purchase our first home in Oakland! She was patient and generous with her knowledge and experience, and really helped us feel comfortable throughout the process. Buying a home for the first time can be scary, but we’re glad we had Mareijke along to guide us and keep us in the hunt!

~Andrew and Amateis

Mareijke and her team were a pleasure to work with

Mareijke and her team were a pleasure to work with. Mareijke went above and beyond to help my partner and I find the home of our dreams. Buying a home can be daunting — She helped by educating us on every step of the process and checking in to make sure that there was a mutual understanding as we went through the pre-approval, house hunting, offer, and closing phases. I so appreciate her quick and reliable communication and support.

~Kristin, James and Dylan

The best “move up” buying experience

My husband and I worked with Mareijke to buy our dream forever home. The home buying process is stressful but Mareijke’s knowledge, attention to detail, solid advice and genuine partnership made it such an amazing process for us. On top of all of this, she also helped us secure our dream forever home after only submitting 1 bid. Yes, some of this may have been luck but I credit the other 95% to her real estate savviness. A few of the things I appreciated the most with working with Mareijeke was her transparency, genuineness, and community expertise. We are confident you will have the same experience in choosing to work with Mareijeke.

~Stefanie

Mareijke was wonderful to work with!

Mareijke has deep industry knowledge and plenty of insights, facts and figures at the ready. She is very diligent, a great communicator, compassionate yet firm. A true pleasure to work with.

Professional, Knowledgeable, Excellent Listener, Caring/Compassionate, Loves her Job, Fun

I met Mareijke 6 days after my father passed away. I had never sold a home before and was uncertain how or where to begin. She listened to my thoughts, concerns and offered excellent information as both a Realtor & CPA. I corresponded with Mareijke often, followed her suggestions, used the vendors she recommended and was never disappointed. She kept me informed every step of the selling process. She answered all of my questions, reviewed all documents with me making sure I understood them, troubleshooted the unexpected, navigated inspections, validated my feelings. My selling experience was made easy because of Mareijke. Honestly, I would not use any other Realtor.

~Andrea

Reliable and dedicated agent

We had the pleasure of working with Mareijke in our recent home purchase, and from the initial consultation to the closing, she demonstrated thoroughness, professionalism and expertise. She truly listened to our needs and preferences and her extensive knowledge of the area we were searching for a home was evident. When we touring homes, we appreciated how she pointed out potential issues and educated us on what to look out for. Communication was seamless throughout the entire process. She was always responsive to calls and emails, promptly addressing any questions or concerns we had. We’re grateful for Mareijke’s assistance in landing us our dream home.

Detail, patience and take the extra steps

Mareijke has been super patience from the beginning. She will not push you or rush you into putting in an offer. She takes the time to go over the details of each documents and communicate anything she feels is a red flag. She will show up to every house open house even when I feel she doesn’t have to be there.

I am so lucky to have found Mareijke Weidemann!

I am so lucky to have found Mareijke Weidemann! She is so friendly and easy to talk to about any concerns or questions. I love that she’s honest and super knowledgeable, especially in the HOA aspect. She saved me from a possible bad decision that would likely put me in future debt. I was too eager but she helped me slow down and assured me that something better would come along and it did! I also love that she works for my benefit and not just to make a sale. She’s not pushy and always gives me space to think but still checks in frequently. Home buying for anyone is a major deal but more so for first time home buyers like me. I’m so glad she walked me through every step of the way, is super responsive, and finds solutions to road bumps in a very timely manner. It helps tremendously that she’s a numbers person because she helped me budget and make sure I know what my limits are. If only every realtor was like Mareijke! Thank you so much!!

~Annie

Best Agent in the Bay!!!

Mareijke did everything she possibly could to create the best experience while selling our 1st house. She prepared us in multiple ways and was very transparent about the industry as well as our situation. We literally couldn’t ask for more as she worked her magic. We learned so so much from working with Mareijke and our sell was 100% successful in the perfect amount of time considering the market. We are now so happy in our new place, and much of that is because Mareijke worked so hard to create success. We love her and keep in contact to this day. Thanks M!!!

Working with Mareijke Weidmann was amazing

Working with Mareijke Weidmann was amazing. Her wealth of knowledge was evident from the very beginning of the process. She lives and breathes real estate, and she breaks complex topics down into something that digestible for the client. With something as stressful as buying a home, she alleviates a lot of that stress with her calm demeanor and her ability to think ahead. It is obvious how passionate she is in her line of work, which makes it very enjoyable to work with someone like that. She works incredibly hard and make sure her clients are happy, which was a great part of working with her. She made me feel confident with the decision making, and made sure I had all pieces of information that would be key to my decision making. She is a wonderful reflection of the company, and I couldn’t thank her enough for everything.

~Ryan

My experience with Mareijke was absolutely outstanding!

The selling of my late mother’s-in-law’s home was very emotional to say the least. Mareijke was very compassionate and really took my feelings into account as the selling process commenced. During the selling process, she clearly explained each step thoroughly and took any guess work out of the process. I felt her professionalism was above and beyond. Any time I had a question, her response was expeditious. She clearly paid attention to detail in all of her tasks. I clearly never felt alone in this highly emotional process.

Mareijke is more than a realtor

Mareijke is a phenomenal realtor. She was so helpful in making sure we had the information we needed and felt completely comfortable with our decisions. She brought a ton of area knowledge to the process and was also incredibly generous with her time. We’re so grateful for her help and her expertise. I would refer her to friends and family without hesitation.
