  Marion had completed a number of sales in our community -- and she had worked very hard to have a professional and supportive presence there. When we first contacted Marion, we were a long time away from wanting to/being able to take action. She worked with us throughout this period and provided very helpful market research. along with specific information about prospective properties for us once we were ready to sell. The production of sales material on our home was creative and impressive. She was able to capture its special features, and showcased beautifully the expansiveness of the property. We enjoyed working with Marion. She was patient and supportive and understood that the second half of our initiative (the purchase) was just as important as the first. Thank you, Marion.

Carol Kalbfleisch, Burlington
