Marissa Brooks used to be a city hopper, but now she’s a Philly local. She grew up in New York City, then lived in D.C. and Baltimore before settling in Philadelphia, where she lives in the South Kensington neighborhood with her stagehand husband and young daughter. Since 2005, Marissa’s been falling in love with Philadelphia’s architecture, neighborhoods and real estate. And she’s here to stay.

Lucky for her clientele, Marissa’s attention to their needs is impeccable. As a realtor, she guides her clients carefully through the big next step in their lives. Sometimes it’s walking into a couple’s dream home and drawing up paperwork that night; other times it’s making a difficult transition empowering with a deal that checks every box. 

When she’s not helping her clients get a great deal or a dream home, Marissa can be found at her favorite Penn Treaty park enjoying the breeze and the water views or sharing tapas with good company at Amada in Center City.
