Welcome to Eugene’s Alternative, Realtors™! I’m Marisa, your down-to-earth Oregon broker with a deep-rooted knowledge of the local scene. A lifelong resident of Eugene, I’m eager to share my insights into this vibrant region with you.
I have a background as a paralegal and experience in the non-profit sector assisting unhoused veterans. Over my 13-year career as a paralegal, I discovered my passion for connecting with people and helping them achieve their goals.
As the daughter of a carpenter and an interior decorator, I developed a keen eye for home improvements that add value, whether you’re selling or buying a property in need of updates.
Beyond real estate, I’m a proud mother to a wonderful son and caretaker of some beloved fur-babies. My enthusiasm for small-scale urban farming shines through. I can convince you of the joys of raising backyard chickens and miniature dairy goats! When I’m not tending to my garden or critters, I love exploring Oregon’s natural beauty, camping with my son, or cooling off in a local creek.
Having called Oregon home my entire life, I warmly invite you to discover our northwest paradise and entrust me with your real estate needs. Let’s make your next move an efficient and rewarding experience together!
Whether you’re selling your home, buying your first property, or expanding your real estate portfolio, you’ve come to the right place.

Marisa and the firm are unlike other realtors I’ve experienced. They combine knowledge, a great friendly personality, and willingness to go beyond what would be required. I recommend Marisa Fox! She is knowledgable and full of energy that that she puts to work for you. I’ve used her four times and she is always great to work with.

Marisa Fox helped us get into the house of our dreams by listening to us and supporting us through the process. She is a fun and lovely person to go through the process with and never made me feel bad for asking questions. It’s a crazy time to buy a house, and she made it seem easy.

— Martha Dyer

Marisa was great. She sent me emails as soon as new properties came on the market, and was always eager to meet me for tours. She took all the stress out of scheduling and paperwork, and was always available to talk to me when I was feeling anxious about my purchase. We wrote 6 offers, because of the crazy market, but she stayed optimistic and wasn’t deterred by rejections, or sales being canceled due to inspections. I felt like she truly had my best interest heart every step of the way.

— Liz Kruze

I can not recommend Marisa enough. From start to finish she has been on top of it and helped me every step of the way. She has great local lender suggestions. She knows Eugene area as she’s a native but is also knowledgeable in the Oregon market generally. Very personable, the showings impressed me. She was a listing agent but able to be objective about a property and it impressed me, so felt great about choosing her as a buyers agent. Wonderful realtor and human being.

— Joseph McManus

Marisa Fox is amazing. She guided my husband and I through our first home purchase every step of the way with, humor, caring, and sincerity. I always felt she was working hard for us. She answered questions, made suggestions, even gave us lists of vendors she had worked with on other sales when we weren’t sure who to call. Even on the last day when I had a case of the nerves, she was able to calm me down and make me laugh. Without Marisa we would not have been able to find our forever home. She is truly an asset to the company as well as to our community. We love you Marisa! Thank you so much for all you did for us.

Marisa was very patient as we took our time looking and making the right choices for us. Thank you again.
