Marla Deshayes - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

So when you go looking for your dream home and you find your dream realtor in the process it’s the best of days!

We didn’t get our first dream home, but certainly not for lack of Marla working her fingers to the bone for it. We were so impressed by her expertise and calm friendly demeanor that we knew that when we found the next home to purchase, it would be Marla we called. From beginning to closing to even today, she’s the most attentive and gracious person on the planet. We found our home and we just wouldn’t have been able to stay near as calm without her guidance through the experience. We truly felt like family as that’s how she treats you. My husband and I know she’s our realtor for life.

I've known Marla since she was in grammar school.

She has grown into a remarkable, responsible parent and adult. She takes great care of her 3 children, alone. Very attentive and involved in each of their lives as she was with me in the sale of my home. Her professional expertise made this stressful process of selling my home, during a global pandemic, very smooth and less stressful. Her caring & kind personality put me at ease through the process. She went out of her way to make sure I had everything I needed to make this a successful sale. I highly recommend Marla if you are in the market of selling or buying a home. A very big Thank You Marla (and your team) for all your hard work!


I met Marla in 2014 when I moved from Temecula to Carlsbad.

When I finally got serious about looking for a home in North County - and after a few high-pressure sales tactics from other realtors in the area - Marla was the first person I called to help me with my home purchase. Once we found the perfect home, Marla had the offer together and financing started in less than two hours. From offer to close - she was smart, responsive, and attentive - never once leaving me to question or wonder what was happening next. If you are in the market for a home and are looking for a consummate professional who will listen and not just make the sale - Marla and The Arendsen Group will go above and beyond!


My husband and I met Marla the first time when we went to an open house she was hosting.

Our first impression of Marla, we knew right away that she was professional and knowledgeable in her field along with her ability to make you feel comfortable. From that point on, Marla not only became our agent but our friend. With her professional expertise, she made this sometime stressful process of buying a home, so smooth and less stressful. Her caring and kind personality puts you at ease through the whole process. We highly recommend Marla if you are in the market for buying a home. Thank you Marla from the bottom of our hearts for all your hard work!
