MEET SEBASTIAN MARROQUIN
“I have been teaching, negotiating and leading from a very young age and now all those experiences are playing out now as an adult in real estate. It seems that all my experiences had been shaping me for the role of not just a Realtor but as an advisor that truly helps connect people to their dreams . Now I get to meet great people and educate them about the market, I get to negotiate a great deal for them and I get to lead them into achieving their real estate goals. I find this very fulfilling and that is why I love what I do and whom I do it for!”
I have been committed to helping buyers, sellers and investors actualize their real estate goals since 2000. I am with Keller Williams Realty in Pasadena, CA where I have the pleasure of coaching new agents as a member of their teaching faculty. I am a graduate of BOLD: Business Objective, a Life by Design and have been a member for the last 2 years. I am also affiliated with Peak Producers with Buffini & Company and a mentor for the Keller Williams Pasadena mentoring program, where I implemented a successful Scripts Practice program.
I pride myself in my creative ability to help my clients and deliver more than expected. I am very resourceful in helping buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals whether it be to renovate, add square footage, or simply doing what we do best; helping them acquire a home that is off-market. Along the way I strive to empower them with the knowledge, experiences, and resources I have come to acquire over the years. I also assist buyers and investors with undertaking new construction, from conception to fruition. For the past 7 years, I have worked closely with new and seasoned investors in the capacity of helping them acquire properties to flip for profit. We specialize in off-market homes so that our buyers and investors do not have to experience the headaches associated with lack of inventory and a competitive market.
My team is comprised of all licensed professionals who share the same passion and vision to provide the best service in the industry. We stay on top of the latest technology and market trends in the business to be able to better service all demographics, including the Millenial Generation, Baby Boomers, and everyone in between. We are experienced in short sales, helping first-time home buyers, retirees, second and third home investment rentals, and much more.

I was born in Central America and immigrated to Pasadena, CA with my family at the young age of 5 yrs. I have resided in Pasadena ever since; for almost 30 years now. I am engaged to my fiancé, Salud Leon, who is now also a part of my team as our Administrative Assistant.
Some of my favorite pastimes include taking business and marketing seminars, soccer, dancing, reading, art and fitness. I started playing soccer at a very young age and played through college for Cal State Northridge. Currently, I volunteer as a soccer coach for underprivileged kids in my community. Spending quality time with my fiancé, family and friends is something I cherish and make a priority to do often. I also enjoy learning about new ways to continually improve my customer service skills and business systems to better serve my clients and community. Some of my favorite books include The Compound Effect: Jumpstart Your Income, Your Life, Your Success by Darren Hardy; The Twleve Week Year by Brian P. Moran & Michael Lennington; The One Thing by Gary Keller; The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business by Charles Duhigg, The Automatic Millionaire by David Bach; and The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.
I have a true passion and appreciation for what I do every day. At the core, I enjoy getting to know and helping people achieve their real estate goals whether big or small, conventional or unconventional. I pride myself in being a knowledgeable and trustworthy resource for everyone that I meet including mentoring new agents and helping them along their path to become competent and successful real estate agents in our community. My ultimate goal is to enhance people’s lives and exceed their expectations. To not only help them in that one transaction, but to have a client and friend for life.
