A Note from Marianne
I am extremely grateful to have worked in real estate for over 25 years, doing what I love! This profession gives me purpose—to best serve my clients in the happiest of times as well as the most challenging. Thank you to all of our clients who have trusted me to represent them in buying and selling their homes. I appreciate sharing such a significant event in your lives with me.
“Marianne and the team sold our home in one day at a great price AND with a set of special terms we wanted—a huge success for us.”
“Marianne and her team have done an outstanding job helping us with real estate needs. We moved to the DC area about 8 years ago, and Marrianne was able to match us with the perfect home in the area we wanted. We were on a very short time line, and she navigated pulling things together quickly.”
“Marianne has an amazing network of resources, a detailed understanding of the market, and has the tenacity and energy to get things done. Understanding the market for us included knowledge of what was our competition, who our buyers might be, and what improvements were worth the investment.”
