Anthony is very easy to work with and he will give suggestions but doesn’t try to push anything on you. Communication throughout the selling of my vacant lot was continuous. He even communicated with me via text while on vacation in Europe. Would not hesitate to call him for a purchase or sell because of his professionalism from beginning to end.

Dear Anthony,

Robert and I want to thank you for all your help selling our condo. Your knowledge of the real estate market in this area of town was invaluable. As first time property sellers we truly appreciated your expertise and experience. You were always so patient and happy to answer any questions we had. Your prompt reply to phone calls, texts, and emails was very reassuring. Your advice regarding improvements/repairs, when to list and for how much was spot on. You made the process of selling the condo a positive experience for us. We truly enjoyed working with you. Thanks again for all your help!

Warm regards,
Mica and Robert Brown (Feb. 2019)

My husband and I have found our forever home! This happened thanks to the diligence and efficiency of Anthony Marotta. The entire process was simple and smooth thanks to him. Every phone call was returned immediately, and every question was answered correctly. We enjoyed our experience and have already referred friends and family members to Anthony so that they can enjoy theirs. 

Dona Kenny (June 2018)

Anthony, Thank you so much for your help in bringing this to fruition.  You went all out to make this happen and showed that you care.  I'm not used to that with Realtors I've used in the past.  I will definitely recommend you and use you in the future.  You are appreciated!
Laura White (June 2018)

"I am so glad I engaged you in this transaction. You really helped move it along and you were so patient with the buyer, etc.  I'm not sure it would have gotten done without you and your magic. Thanks so much!!"
Kelly Feese  (June 2018)

Dear Anthony, A special thank you for going above and beyond to sell my house for me. You were very informative, always keeping me posted on all that was happening with my house throughout the entire process. You are an awesome brother and a pretty good real estate agent, too. LOL

Thanks again.
Sincerely, your brother Steven  (June 2018)

We are close to being settled in our new home and excited to be here. I wanted to let you know how grateful our family is to you and the service you provided throughout our home buying experience. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that you were the reason we were able to find and secure the perfect home for our family. Given the current market conditions, limited inventory, and competition with buyers for homes, we could not be more thankful for your efforts and your service to us to make it happen. I have been in the mortgage business for over 20 years and can honestly say I’ve rarely seen anyone with your integrity and dedication to service. We will continue to sing your praises to any and every one we know who has a real estate need. Thank you. 



Steve Stuart and family  (April 2018)


We recently used Anthony Marotta to help us sell my mother's house. Although I have known Anthony for years trusting him implicitly and thought he would make things go smoothly, that is not why I chose him for this important decision. I picked him because sometimes real estate transactions run into unexpected problems that can be difficult to deal with and I knew if that happened I could count on Anthony to solve it while I was at work. After relying on his advice, our house had multiple offers in under a week, sold over listing price, and closed on time. As expected, our friend and realtor handled all our questions and problems without a hitch including a plumbing leak while we were out of the country.
Ralph Boggs  (March 2018) 

Ever since I met you, maybe 12 years ago, I just knew you would one day sell a house for us.  You're great at what you do, your advice was spot on and you had all the answers.  I can't say enough great things about you as a Realtor, and I'm grateful for your friendship.  The transaction was so smooth.  Thank you for everything you did for us.

Sarah Boggs (March 2018)

Our experience with Anthony Marotta in the selling of our home was absolutely outstanding. It is clear that this is a career for him, not a job.  He focuses on continuing education, learning current market trends, and everything else involved with real estate.  You can tell that he spends countless hours perfecting his craft and learning to be the very best at what he does. Anthony's knowledge base of the area, diligence, and attention to detail made our house selling experience worry free. He was always thinking ahead and had a plan to deal with obstacles that could have come up. We can't wait to work with him again later this year in buying our new home. I highly recommend this true professional, Anthony Marotta, to anyone in the market for buying or selling real estate. 

Forever grateful,
Dona Kenny (June 2017)

Dear Anthony,
I wanted to take a moment at this special time of year to thank you for all that you helped us accomplish in 2016.  You helped us sell our house in the Deerwood Estates when no other houses were selling in that section.  You were there to support us every step of the way with pointers and suggestions that we would not have thought of on our own. 
You helped us buy a lot in our dream neighborhood and then you went above and beyond our expectations when you found a rental house that had not even been listed yet.  
You understood how difficult it was for us to leave our home of 24 years and move to a strange place. 
You are an outstanding real estate agent and your kindness and compassion puts you over the top in our book! 
Please let us know if we can do anything for you and don't hesitate to use us as a reference in the future.
Good luck in 2017!
Cindi Coppola (Dec 2016)


My husband and I sold our home almost two years ago.  Anthony was our

Realtor.  He was very professional and very detailed oriented.  He went

above and beyond his job description.  His market analysis was spot on and

we were able to sell our home quickly.

Anthony just sold my elderly parents home as well.  He took the time to

explain everything to my parents.  His patience was greatly appreciated by

our whole family.  


Mandy Gildersleeve (Sept 2015)

We have used Anthony's services in the past for the sale of our home, as well as the purchase of our new home.  He is very organized and helped us throughout both processes.  We found his knowledge of the housing market in our area and his recommendations to be of great value.  We have recommended him to three other close friends and all of them ended up hiring him.  I hope this helps with your decision.....

Pat Riley (August 2015)

I understand you're considering using Anthony as your real estate agent. My husband and I recently used Anthony to sell our home in Johns Creek, and Anthony was an integral part of that, naturally! He was an amazing agent - always available and responsive - and used every advertising resource available to make sure our house was as publicized as possible. 

Carla C. Wester (July 2015)

A short note about Anthony Marotta: he sold my house in a very short time, for the price I had
asked for. He was very professional and dealt very well with the buyers and myself. I was extremely satisfied with his services, and I will recommend him to whoever needs him as a real estate agent.

Georgette Pidal ( March 2015)

It is with great pleasure that I am writing this note to you.  It's obvious you've sold my home and I thank you.  I have never used the services of a more professional realtor. Anthony gave me feedback from all of the showings when available.  He facilitated and took the time with the whole process from listing to closing.  It's with the warmest appreciation that I recommend Anthony to anyone selling a home,
Tom Roberts (July 2014)

Anthony Marotta, 

Thank you for the professional service in selling my mother's home in Deerwood subdivision.  You were one of the four agents that we spoke with prior to listing the house for sale.  Your impressive follow-up, honesty, and knowledge of the Southside Jacksonville Real Estate market, and specifically the Deerwood area, by far exceeded that of the other agents.  Those qualities continued once we listed with you throughout the many steps necessary to successfully close the sale. You kept me informed daily during the process and responded to my "many" questions promptly which gave me and my mother a peace of mind throughout the selling of her home which you did in only a few short weeks!

I greatly appreciate you taking the "worry" out of selling my mother's home, and would not hesitate to recommend you to any of my friends or family in need of a realtor!

Thank you. 
Julie Miller (Dec 2013)

Anthony Marotta is both tactical and strategic, an expert at both the minutia and the big picture of buying and selling a home.  We used Anthony for both and were amazed by his knowledge, professionalism, and work ethic.  He will be our realtor for life.

Dusty and Jeff Williams (Nov. 2013)



I am writing to recommend Anthony C. Marotta as an outstanding Realtor.

We have successfully concluded our third real estate transaction with Anthony--he most recently represented our Deerwood home for sale. As we now live across the country, it was such a comfort to know that Anthony always had our best interests in the forefront and that he was doing everything possible to market our home. He is on top of every detail-whether that is forwarding feedback the minute it is available or letting us know of other listings or sales in the neighborhood, and what that meant for our listing.

When we did receive a contract on our home, Anthony was incredible in giving us guidance on current numbers within the neighborhood for negotiation and then providing the appraiser with competitive information that helped ensure the sale went through. Anthony’s knowledge of Deerwood and other communities was so important. He does his homework!

Anthony is extremely organized. Much like a master chess player, he is always thinking ahead and making sure problems are solved before they can even happen. Anthony is an excellent communicator and a man of high integrity and it is clear he enjoys the respect of fellow agents and other professionals within the field.

We hope that we will end up back in Jacksonville some day. When we do, there is no doubt we will enlist Anthony to help us find the perfect home.


Howard & Lisa Purcell  (August 2013)


Anthony was patient as we navigated our way through a process of making a decision to transition homes to meet our family needs. He was always available, flexible and responsive. He helped us purchase a new home and rent our previous one with much guidance about the market.
Knowledgeable, courteous, professional and very personable. Thank you, Anthony!

Michael and Susan Bateh (August 2013)


We cannot begin to express how grateful we are for the work you have done on our behalf.  You have always been available to us, you have worked hard with the advertising, and you created beautiful photographs to showcase the house at its very best.  Thank you again for all that you have done for us.  We appreciate you!
Sandy and Michael  (May 2013)

Anthony has been a true partner and friend as we transitioned to Jacksonville over the past two plus years. He has assisted us with rental housing all the way to purchasing our beautiful new home. Anthony was ALWAYS available and really got to know us and our family to ensure all our needs and wants were considered. He knows the area so we received the BEST and MOST HONEST information. We would HIGHLY recommend Anthony to anyone. It has truly been a pleasure. Thanks, Anthony.

Alyse and Greg Lisk  (May 2013)

We were impressed with your efficiency but then you sold our house on the first day on the market for more than our asking price, what more can we say?

John Kartsonis    (April 2013)

John and I both agree that you were a pleasure to work with and we've already recommended you to others.
Leigh Learing (November 2012) 
     I wanted to let you know how happy we were with your performance as our real estate agent. Even though the market is difficult right now you never gave up and were able to sell my Mother's condo for us. I appreciate your professionalism and dedication in the sell of her property. Thank you again.

Anthony Marotta was very dedicated to our listing during the marketing of our Jacksonville home. He is an exceptional real estate professional and implemented a number of marketing strategies. He is knowledgeable about the area and kept us abreast of the ever-changing market conditions. He aggressively pursued all potential sale leads and consistency showed strong attention to detail through a successful closing. It was a pleasure to work with Anthony and we would strongly recommend him to others.

Ed and Kathi Kerley (April 2012)

Thank-you for helping us find our dream home! Working with you was such a joy. It is unheard of these days to get the service you provided to us and we want you to know that we truly appreciated your commitment to finding us the perfect home. From the nights you stayed up way too late to check all of the new listings one by one, changing your parameters as often as we changed our minds. You truly made us feel like we were your only client but most importantly you made us feel like your friend. You were with us every step of the process with a smile on your face. You made what could have been a stressful process flow with ease. Thank-you again for EVERYTHING. You will be the first person we call when we are ready to sell and buy a new home. You are an amazing realtor and we are honored to have been your client.

Thank-you again,
Scott and Jessica Jenkins (October 2011)

Anthony, I have worked with a number of real estate agents through the years but none as dedicated, knowledgeable, detail-oriented and thorough as you in every single phase of the selling/buying process. I sincerely believe YOU are the reason that not only were we able to sell our home, but in such a manner that resulted in satisfied buyers AND sellers. That is very rare. From your initial consultation, recommendations, dedication to property detail, marketing tools, consistent showings and feedback, to management of the closing process ~ you never missed a beat. In a difficult real estate market, you still make it look easy. You are one in a million and I cannot thank you enough!

Susan Bradley (October 2011)

Anthony, I wanted to drop you a note to thank you again for successfully selling my Mother-in-laws house in such an efficient and professional manner. This is my first transaction I have done with you but I am sure it will not be the last. I have known of you through your fine reputation in our community and from living in Deerwood. My experience was not like so many horror stories I have heard in this difficult real estate market. After listing the house with you, I received a contract in less than four hours and we closed in 27 days (unheard of in this market). Was I just very lucky or are you that good? I have decided it was a lot of both. I look forward to doing other transactions in the future and please don’t hesitate to ask prospective clients to call me for a reference.

Best regards,Jack         

Jack C. Lueders, Jr. (July 2011)


Hi Anthony,
Liz & I wanted to thank you again for the outstanding job you did in selling our home, something three previous realtors were unable to accomplish. I personally appreciated the frequent communication via email. You stayed on top of each step in the process and directed us so there were no surprises. You were referred to us by our neighbors - before you sold their house to buyers who were interested in our home! We can't thank you enough and will be referring you to others we know who need realty services.

Tom & Liz Matiacio (April 2011)


Hi Anthony,


When we decided to look for a house in Florida, we wanted to work with someone who would understand our particular needs being from out of state. We are so glad we found you!

Not only were you knowledgeable about Florida and the real estate market but you had lots of patience as we figured out where we wanted to live. We never felt pressured and you showed us numerous homes to ensure that we were making the right decision for us.

You made yourself available during the entire process, showing an immense amount of patience and kindness when we would call regularly to gain updates on the progress of the building of our house and sending pictures every step of the way.

Your positive "can do" attitude and smile even transcended over the telephone. Our search, offer, and closing couldn't have gone any smoother.

We are extremely grateful to you for your professional guidance and for your friendship, our first in Florida. We have already recommended you to family and friends and will continue to do so without hesitation.

Many, many thanks!!!

Your Friends,  Steve & Gwen Brennan (April 2011)


Anthony, I wanted to write to “Thank You” for all the help you gave me in my recent “house” hunt. Being from out of town, my time was limited and you always found time for me knowing my time was short. I also felt you knew what I was looking for even if I hadn’t actually told you. I trusted your opinion. Those are great traits in a person. Now that I have a “home” I wanted you to know what a great help you were to me. Thanks again.

Patricia Lisk (January 2011)


Hi Anthony,
I just wanted to thank you for representing us in the recent sale of our home. After being discouraged by today's real estate market, I had given up trying to sell our home. Until a very good friend highly recommended you. She was right!!! You were the BEST person to show our home. Once you understood our position, you were honest and gave us realistic recommendation based on today's market. We appreciated and welcomed all your suggestions. We listened to you....and... YOU SOLD OUR HOUSE. Without your help and expertise in today's market, we would not have been able to accomplish it. THANK YOU !!!!!!.............THANK YOU!!!!!!........

Terri Luna, Jacksonville, Fl (August 2010)



I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated all your hard work with helping me find my first home. I couldn't have done it without your help. You made the process easier for me. I will definitely be recommending you to my family and friends. I'm proud to say that I was lucky because you were my realtor, and I hope you sell thousands of homes in the future. Thank you very much.

Take care,
Ray (November 2009)


When I first contacted Anthony, I had previously been looking for a new house for an extended period of time, without success. Anthony stepped in and put me at ease with every step of the process and was able to suggest properties which were exactly the type I was looking for. We found a great house, and from the initial offer stage through the day of the closing and beyond, Anthony took all of the uncertainty and worry out of the process and allowed me to relax and get ready for the closing. Anthony goes the extra mile for his clients and truly wants to see them find the perfect property. I will certainly be recommending him in the future to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Andrew (October 2009)


When relocating to Jacksonville I needed an agent who not only knew the market well, but could recommend housing that suited our needs precisely. I found those qualities and an unequivocal level of service in Anthony Marotta. Anthony displayed patience, dedication and tenacity at every stage of the process and was on-call day and night. I am convinced that he is the reason we are now living very happily in our new home!
Susan Rye (April 2009)
My wife and I love our new home, and we could not have found it without Anthony. We moved to Jacksonville from Chicago. My wife could not take time off work to come down and look at houses, and I could only come down to look for a house during short trips. Anthony spent countless hours researching homes and emailing us listings in Chicago, and then when I would travel to Jacksonville, he would dedicate his entire weekend to chauffeuring me around to the homes that I had picked out. Throughout the process, I could tell that he truly wanted to make a connection with us so that he could find a home that we would love. I can highly recommend Anthony to anyone who needs help finding a home

Thanks again!

Todd (September 2009)


Thank you for all of your work and patience in making it all happen.
Karen (August 2009)
After months of trying to market our house ourselves, and then through a realty group, listing with Anthony was such a relief. Honest feedback, without trying to drive down the price of our house (as the realty group encouraged, so the house would sell with minimal marketing), Anthony gave our home the kind of service one might expect when selling a million dollar+ home. Through his thorough marketing and amazing photos, our home was under contract and sold within a month of signing with him! Anthony remained an approachable professional during the whole process, and really helped us feel confident from start to closing. Thank you, Anthony!

-Brian and Mary (received August 2008 from a Feb. 2008 closing)


"My husband and I have been especially impressed by Anthony's
diligence in advertising our home immediately after obtaining our
listing. Anthony had us posted on the MLS within 24 hours of our
signing a contract with Magnolia Properties. He took over 100
photographs of our small home so he could select the 49 best to place
on the MLS. He designed a color flyer that emphasized the most salient
features of our home. And, he has initiated contact with us almost
daily. It is obvious that Anthony is interested in selling our home,
not just having our listing. He did more work for us in the first 10
days than our previous agent did in 6 months."

Amy (March 2009)


I think you more than met your objective.

Paul and I have been thrilled with the level of personal service you have given us. It is apparent that you not only pay attention to all the details but also really care about your clients and their new home. We would never use another agent after having worked with you. I don't think anyone else could compare!
Sayra (May 2006)


If you want honesty, integrity, and a hard working agent, my advice is choose Anthony Marotta. Anthony will analyze the market and place a value on your home that is fair. Anthony closed our sale when we were $225,000 apart.

Karen Scally (Oct. 2008)


You were wonderfully helpful and professional. My hat's off to you about doing a wonderful job, and being so thorough. I really appreciate it and will refer you to many, many people.

Gerald G. Alexander (May 2007)



I thank you so much for selling my house. Thank you for your hard work and your patience.

Sharon DePiro (Dec. 2008)


Anthony was very helpful to us and made our home search and purchase a truly
relaxed and easy process. He was with us every step of the way and did a
terrific job of "thinking" for us and asking the questions that we might not
have been thinking about. It was so great to have him there to coordinate the
entire process while we were busy with our everyday schedules. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to make their home search a painless and easy experience. Terrific job! Thank
you Anthony!

Glen and Iliana Beckert (Feb. 2008)

Hi Anthony,

I am really grateful and appreciate your help in this process. You have shown us a lot of patience, and show great concern for us beyond the purchase of the house. I have always liked the fact that you have spoken-up and shared your thoughts. That is probably just one of the things that makes you stand out from the other Realtors (Their biggest concern is the sell), Thanks.

Talk to you later,
Teddy (Jan. 2007)

Anthony, we ....really appreciate you thinking of us! Mary says
you are the best realtor in the universe...
Take care and have a healthy and prosperous year.
Scott Hayford (April 2005)

Thanks Anthony, Wendy and I are very pleased with the way you handled our property and would never hesitate to give your name to someone either buying or selling. You earned every dime….


William Partlow (July 2007)

__________ __________ __________ __________


I wanted to let you know that my wife and I are very pleased with the service of Magnolia properties, more specifically Anthony Marotta. Hands down I believe Anthony is the best real estate agent we have ever worked with for buying or selling property.

From the day we signed the listing agreement to the day of the closing we felt as though Anthony gave 100% of his time and effort.

William Partlow

__________ __________ __________ __________

You are amazing… thank you for the way you represent us…all of us.


I am so proud of 'you'!

We know you’re a great agent…’s nice for others to notice too!



"We thoroughly enjoyed working with Anthony Marotta. He was helpful to us in every way. He found us the perfect house in our desired neighborhood, along with making sure all the details to our transaction were taken care of. We feel he went above and beyond to help us get through our deal smoothly. The service that Anthony provided us with cannot be put into words. We would strongly recommend working with Anthony as he exceeded our expectations as a realtor."

Rebecca and Brian Turner (Aug. 2005)



Thank you so much! We greatly appreciate all your help and efforts in selling our home, Thanks!

Eva, Nelson, and the Kids (Feb. 2008)



Your idea is brilliant and I appreciate you looking

your actions are always be honorable. Thank you for
taking such good care of us and I will let you know
how we are to proceed.

With affection,

Lauren (Aug. 2007)


Anthony Marotta and Magnolia Properties worked with us to showcase our property. They generated a lot of traffic on our house and found the buyers who loved the place as much as we did. The transaction went smoothly. Anthony was always well prepared.

Anthony, thank you!

Lynn and Tim Heider (August 2008)


Hi Anthony….

Just to let you know I appreciate all you do…thank you for being on my team….congrats on your closing. You are a great agent.
