I contacted Marilyn after we had broken up with our previous realtor over pricing. After one phone call, and a brief meeting the next day, at our house, Marilyn had analyzed our house, it's location, and our needs. She walked us though local comparable listings in detail. She then recommended listing the house for $29K more than we had thought possible! This was $49K more that our previous realtor had recommended! She then prepared a estimate of closing costs, so that we knew exactly what $$ amount we would net after the sale - very upfront & useful. Marilyn's strategy paid off with six offers (five above list) after only 2 days on the market!! Marilyn and her team handled all aspects of the listing, showing, contract negotiation, and closing, in an excellent, trouble free, and courteous manner. Best of all the client is treated as an equal in all decisions - we could not have asked for better. Marilyn is smart & personable with a very direct approach (no BS!). She understands all aspects of the business and never misses a beat. She is a consummate negotiator. And she has obviously adapted to the current market reality with ease, while many other realtors have not. I guess the Phd after her name really means something! I recommend Marilyn and her team without reservation!
