I come to Real Estate with a well rounded business resume and an extensive background. I worked in management in the areas of banking, finance and non-profit fundraising and education prior to focusing on Real Estate. I pride myself in being dedicated to my client’s needs and helping them fulfill their Real Estate goals.
“Working with Marilyn was a pleasure, to say the least. We found her to be incredibly patient and trustworthy (she helped us look for houses off-and-on for three years!) which clearly signified to us that she truly wanted to help us find the best home, rather than make commission on a sale. On top of that, she has a fantastic, low-key and totally professional demeanor (our three year-old daughter fell in love with her) and she remained an incredible advocate for us throughout the entire home-buying process. She knows the greater DC area and its residents very well, having raised a family here and this gave her the upper hand – getting info on listings before they even hit the market.
"She also helped us sell our home and negotiate complicated settlement and move out dates. Marilyn demystified, de-stressed and made manageable what can – in most cases - be a pretty intimidating process."

“I've known Marilyn since 2007 when she was assisting my father with the renovations and sale of his mother's home. Through the next four years while I was renting, she provided me with excellent advice and guidance through many challenging situations. Most recently, she helped me purchase a home.
"Marilyn was very thoughtful, patient, and knowledgeable about every aspect of the process. I can't imagine going through buying a home without someone of her caliber by my side! She was creative with the negotiation process, knowledgeable about the school districts/neighborhoods that we would prefer, and she understands the structural/essential functions of a home and explained things in layman's terms. She has a wide network of excellent professionals who also assisted us through the process. We were extremely satisfied. I would highly recommend Marilyn.”
“After our house in Kensington was on the market for a year with little activity, we contacted Marilyn to do an assessment of the home and the market. We did some upgrades she suggested and put it back on the market at Marilyn's recommended price. Activity immediately increased and we were under contract at a higher price than listed within three weeks.
Marilyn managed the transaction all the way through closing. We were so confident in her we did not even travel back to Maryland for the closing. Marilyn handled everything for us electronically without a hitch. We were very pleased with her knowledge, skills and ability as a realtor.”

I thought I was moving out-of-state and had already given written notice to my landlord (which Marilyn helped me find when moving from FL). After my plans changedI emailed Marilyn and she immediately emailed information on houses that fit my criteria. I drove around the neighborhoods of the houses I was interested in Monday the 4th. I selected 6 houses to see the inside of which she set up all of them for the next day on Tuesday the 5th. We made an offer on that Friday the 8th, had an inspection on the 13th and closed on the 29th. MIRACLE WORKER!!!!
