A little bit about my background and how it has influenced my career.
I was born in Nuremberg, Germany and spent many years there, but as a Military Brat I have lived all over. One thing that I learned at a very early age was moving every few years instills in you a number of beneficial qualities including preparation, resilience, adaptation skills and last but not least the ability to expect the unexpected.
How long have I been in real estate?
“I have been in real estate for ten years. I started working as an Agent eight years ago and started my own firm Alterna Real Estate in January of 2013. Loved every minute of it. Well almost LOL.”
What do I enjoy most about my career as a Broker?
“Definitely the people, I will have to say there’s never a dull moment in my field and the people are what make each experience unique. Telling people they got the house is a reward in itself.”
Does Marcel Perez-Ayala have any awards?
“I have received a number of awards and certifications such as SFR, SRS, EPro, to name a few but in my business, the ultimate award is a referral. Nothing says thank you or a job well done like a referral from a past Client. Alterna has also sponsored the Joy Prom for the last two years. In addition to that a portion of the proceeds on our real estate transactions go to local charities, and we give the Seller the choice.
Where I can be found when not showing or listing property?
I enjoy fishing and traveling, but there’s a good chance you will find me spending my free time with my wife and kids. At the end of the day, I do all these things for so many different Clients and other Agents, but I also do it for my family.
After the moving truck is gone
After it’s all said and done, I am there for my Clients even after the moving truck is gone. Whether it is a domestic or international relocation, there are things that come up that the Client simply doesn’t know. Here at Alterna Real Estate we have an open door policy, we are here for our Clients to help them with any suggestions such as local restaurants and entertainment, information about the local schools or referrals for any home renovations they may be interested in. “I love what I do, and my Clients know it!”
Marcel was a very attentive realtor. He always responded to my questions immediately. He was able to recommend many other people as part of the purchasing process as well (lender, lawyer, inspector, etc). Marcel went out of his way many times to accommodate my very hectic work schedule. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
First time home buyer and Marcel made the process as easy and enjoyable as possible! It was quite the ordeal, but he was there for us every step of the way. Dragged him around all of Charlotte, multiple houses a day, but he always made time. He was patient with us because it took a good deal to find the right home and he kept our spirits high even when we thought we’d never find what we were looking for. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you work with Alterna Real Estate!
Marcel was so helpful in our home buying process. He really listened to our wants (even the ones we didn’t explicitly state) and found exactly what we were looking for. He responded quickly any time we needed him and was so patient as we looked for our home.
We listed and sold our home with Mr. Perez-Ayala, and he was incredibly helpful, genuine, and task-oriented in his work with us.
What was particularly helpful in working with Mr. Perez-Ayala is that the entire transaction of listing to closing was done remotely as we no longer live in the Charlotte area. In fact, Mr. Perez-Ayala was referred to us by one of my co-workers who also sold his home through Mr. Perez-Ayala while living out-of-state. Mr. Perez-Ayala was able to coordinate every single aspect of the process and handled everything with great attention to detail and in a timely fashion.
If you are out-of-state and looking to sell or purchase a property in the greater Charlotte area, you should have great confidence in Mr. Perez-Ayala and his expertise and experience in working with buyers and sellers remotely. I strongly recommend him!
Couldn’t have been happier having Marcel as my Realtor. Alterna did a great job helping me find my first home. I’ve already referred 2 friends to Marcel for their upcoming home search. He’s a great agent with a great personality. You’ll love having him as your realtor!
