We chose Marilyn because she had the credentials and experience, but was also very down-to-earth and personable. Our house was older and lacked some amenities buyers in the current market are accustomed to. She walked us through comparable sales in our area and made straightforward suggestions to address those issues and best position our house on today’s market (her observations were spot on as we began getting feedback from the showings). We appreciated the way she approached the process as a business transaction, including summarizing all the numbers on the Seller’s Estimated Net Sheet. Her stager gave us great recommendations, final touch showing suggestions, and the high-quality HDR photographs from her real estate photographer really made the listing stand out online. We received eleven offers in the first four days of being on the market. Marilyn advised us and navigated us systematically through the offers to select the highest and best and she recognized the potential a low appraisal could have on the transaction. She negotiated with the buyers to strengthen their offers further by including contingency to make up the difference in the sales price, regardless of the appraisal value, ensuring us the most value for our home. We had a great experience and highly recommend working with Marilyn and her team.
