Marissa was a lifesaver for our family. As a working mom, I was so anxious trying to find the right fit for our family. Marissa put our nerves at ease and found us the perfect nanny. My husband and I would not have the ease we do going to work every day if not for Marissa searching high and low to find us our nanny. And should we need a last-minute fill-in, Marissa is on the ball and can find someone quickly. Her candidates are all vetted and she narrows the very vast field to a select group of wonderful caretakers. This took a lot of pressure off of us and we are so grateful for Marissa.

We were skeptical at first about using a nanny referral service, but I have to admit that Marissa was a lifesaver to us. We had no idea what finding a nanny would involve and waited until the last minute. When we were introduced to Marissa, we knew instantly that using MBR Nanny Network was the way to go. She spent a lot of time telling us not only about her company and experience, but educating us on how to find the nanny that would meet our personal needs. Every time we spoke to her we felt like we were speaking to an old friend. She is extremely responsive and professional – I can’t remember a single time that I called her and she did not answer or have a response to me within minutes. Most importantly, she was able to place us with an incredible nanny in a matter of days.
Marissa literally took care of everything – advertising, interviewing, checking references, background checks, etc. It allowed us to focus on raising our daughter and preparing to return to work. Marissa’s knowledge of the Philadelphia nanny scene is unmatched – she knows where to find the best nannies, red flags to look out for, how to match the skills of a particular nanny with the needs of a child. The comfort of knowing that she would find us a caring and responsible person to care for our daughter was priceless. I highly recommend her services. If I could hire her to organize my life, I would in a heartbeat.

Finding a responsible, caring nanny is a challenge. Working with Marissa made the process simple, and gave us peace of mind as we made our choice. Marissa located, interviewed and vetted candidates for us to then meet, and helped us explore our needs so that we could find the nanny that was right for us and for our children, ages four years and one-month old at the time. Marissa was also a great resource for candid and sensible advice during the process, and showed great energy, calm and a positive attitude while helping us with every step — from the first consultation, to nanny background checks, to checking in after our new nanny started with us, making sure we were comfortable. We were very lucky to have Marissa’s help, and would recommend her highly.

I would like to express my complete satisfaction using MBR Nanny Network and its sitter placement services. We have utilized the service several times and I have complete confidence in the sitters that are placed with my family. Marissa understands the complexities in hiring a caretaker and strives to put both parents and children alike, fully at ease. She thoroughly screens all of the nannies in the network which takes a lot of stress out of the process for me! She responds to any communication very quickly and was able to place an “emergency” sitter one night when my privately booked sitter could not make it. She saved the day! I would thoroughly recommend MBR Nanny Network to anyone needing an occasional sitter.

Marissa and her team are the absolute best! Where they differentiate themselves from other nanny placement services is Marissa’s ability to listen carefully to what is and is not working for your family, and objectively assess the type of person that will be the best fit. After meeting my two rambunctious boys, she immediately knew that we need a high energy, creative nanny, who could keep up. She found us the perfect fit for our family and schedule!

Working with Marissa was a dream! Finding a nanny can be very stressful at times and Marissa made it so easy for us. We tell everyone that asks about MBR Nanny Network's service that it was the best money we have ever spent!

They say it takes a village, but really it just takes Marissa! We have used MBR Nanny Network to hire a part-time nanny, temporary help, and even date night sitters on multiple occasions! One call or text to Marissa and she has a qualified, excellent babysitter for you, sometimes within an hour! I love being able to leave my home confident that my children are well cared for while still getting out and enjoying life!!  Marissa is my secret parenting weapon, she helps me tackle anything that comes up!

When I decided to go back to nannying after some time away, I started working with MBR to see if they could help me find a job. I never expected to find my dream job, working with an adorable baby and his amazing parents. Being back in the childcare industry and working with this incredible family is the best feeling and I am thrilled that I decided to work with MBR. Thank you, Marissa and your team, for all you have done for me - this experience has really been life-changing!

Marissa and her team were professional, responsive, intuitive, and determined to find our family a wonderful nanny. Marissa was always available and supported us through a challenging transition. We are incredibly grateful, and I recommend MBR Nanny Agency without reservation!!

I was introduced to Marissa five years ago when our current caregiver gave us two weeks’ notice and I was also two weeks away from launching a business. I was frantic about how to manage with two small children and no caregiver. In our first phone call, Marissa calmed me down, listened intently to what we needed and got straight to work. In THREE days, she had found us the perfect fit for our family, who also happened to live five minutes from us in the suburbs and is with us still today. I give MBR Nanny Network's info to every parent looking for care. I know firsthand that Marissa and her team are caring, professional and efficient. I would not recommend searching for a caregiver any other way.

Danielle Yoch

I was very happy with using Marissa and her team for our nanny search. They were very professional, knowledgeable, easily accessible and most importantly was able to find us a great nanny candidate for our family. Marissa was always available for me to discuss any questions and concerns and walked me through the process of hiring a nanny every step of the way. I am really glad I used Marrisa to help me as this was the first time our family used a nanny and she really helped me ease my concerns. I am definitely planning on using her in the future and would recommend her to others!

Finding a nanny is so stressful but MBR (and Marissa specifically) make the process so much easier. From making nanny recommendations to providing individual guidance with the process and the paradigm, to showing up when you need someone stat - MBR is amazing!
