Marisol R. McAllister


Real Estate Deal Maker

Marisol is a master at closing real estate deals because she has experience from all sides so can quickly analyze the issues and zero in on what needs to be done. She steers clients in the right direction and gives them the confidence to make good decisions.
Another trait that helps Marisol successfully close commercial transactions: she is great at developing effective relationships and works well with all parties to efficiently finalize deals.

While Marisol’s practice includes real estate, financial services, and business, she finds real estate development and transactions to be the most rewarding because no two deals are the same.  She enjoys diving into difficult issues, simplifying them for her clients, and expanding her level of expertise through new experiences.
