About Marvin

When you work with Marvin Deal as a Realtor, you can be assured that you will be dealing with a professional of high integrity and a breadth of knowledge to guide you in the home buying and selling processes.

Marvin has been involved in the housing industry for 35 years.  Starting as an apprentice carpenter, Marvin acquired hands on experience in custom home building and remodeling. This led to a starting position in a building materials company called Orco Construction Supply where he stayed over next 26 years. Marvin worked his way through the ranks to eventually become an owner/manager. When Marvin left the company in 2003, it had grown to 22 branches and 800 employees. Over the years Marvin gained invaluable experience in business administration, customer service, problem solving and successful sales. During these years Marvin and Kelly raised their two children Heather and Dustin.

In 2000 Marvin and Kelly moved to the beautiful Oakland hills. They began two parallel businesses: building and renovating homes and residential real estate. In 2003 Marvin obtained his real estate license and completed an advanced training class, the Masters Program with Alan Pinel Realtors. Throughout this last decade Marvin has assisted Kelly in her Real Estate business while also building, renovating and remodeling a dozen homes.

In 2009 he obtained his general contractor’s license and started Marvin Deal Construction Co. “Marvin Deal homes” have sold among the highest price per square foot in Crocker Highlands, Montclair and Piedmont Pines. That’s because Marvin believes that a home should reflect quality, authenticity, creativity, be both functional in layout and design and beautiful in every detail… because every details counts.

Marvin’s depth of experience in construction and his eye for detail are assets that come into play in both coordinating the preparation of homes for Sellers and understanding the condition of homes for Buyers. In all of his careers, Marvin has earned a reputation of being knowledgeable, reliable and responsive to clients.  His years of business experience, his demonstrated leadership, and his ability to negotiate and collaborate all make him an excellent choice if you are looking for a Realtor.
