Marla Trussell is a Realtor Sales Associate at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Encinitas, serving all of North County San Diego. After graduating from Rutgers University with a BA degree in Economics, Marla began her career in banking. After two years on Wall Street, Marla relocated to Los Angeles. She continued her career in Banking and Finance. She then attended the University of Southern California where she received an MBA in Real Estate Finance and Marketing.
After graduation, she obtained her real estate sales license in California and has worked in Los Angeles and Orange Counties before settling with her family in North County San Diego. Since 2003, Marla has assisted buyers and sellers with their real estate needs. She distinguishes herself with a commitment to excellence and professionalism, integrity and honesty. Her clients always echo the same sentiment about Marla; they believe that she places their interests above all and works tirelessly to ensure that their interests are protected. She is someone they can rely on.
During a 2 ½ year relocation to New Jersey, Marla continued her real estate career. She joined the Coldwell Banker Spring Lake office where she achieved top producer status. She expanded her transaction experience to include the representation of trustees in the liquidation of Chapter 11 real estate assets. She also gained experience in probate sales.
Marla returned to North County San Diego in 2008 and continued her real estate career with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. As the dynamics of the market changed, Marla became a CDPE (Certified Distressed Property Expert) offering short sale services to her clients. Additionally, Marla leveraged her Chapter 11 experience to go on and represent banks in their disposal of their REO assets (foreclosed homes).
Marla continues to offer a wide breadth of real estate services to her clients; single family purchases and sales, 1031 Exchanges, relocations and vacation homes. Additionally, Marla is well versed in military relocations (PCS) and VA loans.
When Marla is not assisting her clients, she enjoys a busy outdoor life with her family, from the beaches to the trails. She has also traveled extensively and lived abroad. She believes these overseas experiences have helped her refine her negotiating skills and understanding her clients and other agents better.
