"Marlene was extremely responsive and willing to meet us at crazy hours based on our hectic schedules. She was very mindful of our buying limitations, needs, and wants. She helped us understand the buying process and market and we've now purchased a better property than we'd thought possible. We would absolutely recommend her to friends and family."

"I give Marlene a A+ rating. She responded very quickly and was always there to answer any questions I had. This was my first purchase of a home and it was a pleasure to work with her. If anyone is looking for a home I would highly recommend her. Buying a home is a big Investment so you need the right real estate agent and Marlene was a God send."
