Recommendations for Marilyn Messenger

Marilyn did an excellent job in first helping me to buy my condo a few years ago. Then when it came time to sell it, she was there to provide a stellar experience once again. I can't stress enough how much it meant to me that she took charge and streamlined the whole process. She knew exactly how to price and advertise the property, and it sold before I even knew it was gone. If you want an agent that sees the sale through to closing, promptly and professionally, choose Marilyn! Andrew Bays
She knows how we feel about her high quality of work ethics, professional attitude , knowledge, ability to follow through on things, .....everything. After all, this is the SIXTH time she has successfully helped us with buying and selling houses! We hope it will be our last, but if it isn't, we will call her to represent us. Thanks Marilyn! Sally Sack
Marilyn Messenger is thoughtful, responsible, kind, genuine, very knowledgeable and one of the finest brokers I have EVER worked with. It was a real pleasure to work with Marilyn and she made my purchase of a condo at Deer Hedge Run Condominiums very very easy. I would recommend her and commend her knowledge and services!
