Meet Carissa Marshall!

I am a licensed Realtor with the number one brokerage firm in Holmdel, Berkshire Hathaway Fox and Roach. I love working with this company because of the state of the art marketing programs we have for our clients and the support that I receive as a top agent. When I started my career back in 2014, it was supposed to be something that can help support our family income, but I never knew that it would take off the way it did. I find that my sellers and buyers enjoy working with me for my honesty, open communication, patience, & most of all, trust. I truly love working with home buyers and guiding clients through the real estate process whether it’s buying or selling. I want to be an agent that clients eagerly refer to their friends and families and hope that they consider me to be their Forever Agent.


Where do you live?

My husband and I love our neighborhood. We live in the Raritan Valley section of Hazlet with our 3 children. As business owners, we live and work in the town where we have made wonderful relationships over the past 25 years. It’s a safe community, a family community, and a community that offers so much for their residents. We pull together through thick and thin!!

What do you like to do for fun?

Anyone who knows me knows that I love country music and my favorite thing to do is go to concerts with friends and my husband! We love to have our family, friends & children’s friends over for a swim and barbecue every summer. The more the merrier!


What do you love about being a realtor?

I things I love most about this industry are the people that I meet and being the one responsible for helping them find their home. HOME..that is my favorite word. I know that sounds like a typical answer, but without the relationships that I have outside of real estate, I wouldn’t have the successful business that I have today, and the new friends that I have made because of it.

Where do you live?

I live in Middletown NJ , where I was born and raised. Growing up, and deciding to raise my own family here…there are so many things I love about this town. We have access to so much – beaches, the bay, a ton of parks, easy access to NYC by boat, bus or train, as well as restaurants and shopping all close by. However, what I love most about this town are the people. My childhood friends are still my friends- we are now raising our families and the next generation of Middletown kids. I also have a large extended family here and knowing you will likely see someone you know wherever you go — that is comforting!

What do you like to do for fun?

I love to cook and host events, as well as plan vacations. If our friends are going on a trip — I am usually the one to plan it. I am a wife and mom to two incredible boys and our two dogs who we rescued from Puerto Rico.

What do you love about being a realtor?

I love helping people and educating them through the process of buying or selling real estate. As a former teacher, I am able to utilize those skills to guide my clients through the process. Forming relationships and making lifelong friends with those who were once clients, that is the best part of this industry.
