Marie takes this responsibility seriously and consistently delivers professional services to both buyers and sellers. She has excelled at her profession as a lot of her business has been repeat customers and referrals. Her service speaks for itself! Marie greatly enjoys guiding her customers along every step of their home buying experience whether a first-time buyer or an empty nester looking to downsize, and it shows. Sellers can depend on Marie to analyze the market to obtain the best sales price, provide marketing to produce an offer, and she is adept at negotiating the best offer possible. Her attention to detail and communication skills set her apart in the real estate profession. Marie is seasoned in her career and ready to tackle any challenges that are thrown her way.
