What Our Clients Say?
“The service Kiwi provided us throughout the purchasing process was exemplary. He spent time with us throughout the process, listening and understanding our needs. He diligently worked with us, even finding off market listings in a tight market. We continue to recommend him highly. He is a phenomenal agent, counselor and friend.”
Ramin, Newport Coast
“Thank you for your professionalism and dedication thought the purchase of our Tesoro home. The knowledge in the area is extensive and you spent time in finding the right home for my wife and I. We appreciate you “camping out” with us for 2 long nights, to help get our offer accepted ahead of 2 other offers on the table. Thank you for your time and your friendship.”
K. Carol, Lexus of Irvine
“We were so impressed with Marcus’ ability to add value to our real estate transaction. As soon as the transaction was over, we hired Kiwi to lease our property. This is of note because we have our own real estate license. We highly recommend him for the sale, leasing and buying of real estate.”
Doug W., Sea Island LP
“I’m sending you this letter to let you know how pleased we have been with the services of your agent, Marcus “Kiwi” Gualter. Kiwi stayed focused, and in spite of creating an additional obstacle of a replacement home contingency, kiwi remained in contact with prior interested parties and was able to resurrect the sale of our home when it counted.”
Marcy K., Family Law Attorney
“We like Kiwi’s 30 Days Marketing Blitz and his Buyer Delivery System. Kiwi raised the price of our home, generated 2 offers and we received and additional ,000 over what we hoped for our home.”
Leora F. Aubergine, Newport Coast
“When we had a last minute hiccup in at the last minute before closing, Kiwi came up with a solution that was a win-win for both parties. This allowed us to close escrow, instead of incurring further delays.”
Mitra, Newport Coast
“At first we were a bit worried as we had priced our home quite high and we had no offers. Kiwi came through for us by helping the buyer ( represented by a rookie agent), write up the offer and see it through to the end.”
” Working as we do with high end clients at Merrill Lynch, we appreciated Kiwi’s high end approach and his many “Value Propositions”. Kiwi put the plan to work for us, producing the results we wanted. You and your team made the transaction seamless.”
Dee and Gianna, Newport Coast
“Marcus Gualter’s marketing experience was extremely valuable in the creation of the marketing materials and addressing disclosure issues for the sale of my home in Dover Drive in Newport Beach.”
R. Mellon, former CB executive, Newport Beach
“As VP of a major automotive organization (DaimlerChrysler) the ability for a real estate agent to demonstrate a no nonsense marketing plan to get our home sold for top dollar$$$ was the most important issue for me. Kiwi delivered.”
James Young, former VP Daimler-Chrysler
“Kiwi was very professional and diligent in the sale of our home, has an excellent marketing program and has quality data that helped us in our decision making process. Creative, focused and positive throughout.
Les and Mary P. Rivage, Newport Coast
“We recently purchased a new home in Pelican Heights and sold our home in Newport Ridge estates (Sea Terrace) with the help of Marcus “Kiwi” Gualter. He is an excellent broker who went beyond the call of duty to assist us with our every need, day or night.“
Kent and Maureen
“What a team effort. Kiwi held this deal together. Sourced and kept the backup buyer in the deal after the first buyer fell out of escrow. This transaction had about as many moving parts as it could possibly have. Challenging market, drastically changing loan market, an offshore trust in the Cook Islands, a disgruntled buyer who had filed a “Lis Pendens” unlawfully and a pending loan foreclosure. Somehow kiwi and his team made it happen.”
Mike Owens and Melissa Foxx
“Most agents won’t even spend time with leases, but you did. You were tireless in tracking down the right home for us so we could keep our kids at CDM and Newport Coast elementary.”
Mark and Kate W.
“Kiwi thanks for all the help in leasing our Marquee Towers, Park Place in Irvine”
Bill P., Former Senior VP Shea Homes
“My wife Nancy and I would like to extend our sincere thanks on a job well done. The sale of our home closed after a very long and difficult escrow in 2008. His superior marketing plan was well executed and delivered the results.”
Marc L., Attorney at Law
“Once again thank you for doing such a great job and leasing my home for me.”
Lori M., Newport Coast
“I’m not sure how many other Newport Realtors were able to deliver 5 offers for their listing in 2007-2008, but you did. Many thanks.”
Charlie and Diane, Corona Del Mar
“Thank you so much for all the hard work you put into selling 20 Avignon. Cheers.”
The Stake family, Montserrat

Tim T. Broker Associate, Rogers Realty
“Even as a licensed broker, we found that marketing our home successfully and negotiating with multiple buyers and keeping a buyer in escrow was a challenge. Kiwi’s perseverance and skill set was greatly appreciated. We are glad we hired Kiwi rather than going at it alone.”
